Thousands of peo-  ;ple take purgative medicines in the  rspring, and make a most serious mis-  ^take In doing  so.    People   who feel  ���������tired and depressed, who find the appetite variable, who have occasional  Jieadaches and backaches,   or   whose  .'blood shows impurities through pirn-  ;ples and   eruptions,    need a   spring  medicine.

A tonic medicine is what is  .meeded in the spring and Dr. Williams  .Pink Pills is the best tonic that science  'lias yet discovered.   They are quietly  -absorbed   into   the system filling the  veins with pure rich, red blood that  ���������carries health and strength to every  part of the body.   Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills cure skin eruptions, indigestion,  '-headaches,   nervousness,   rheumatism  .and all blood troubles.   They improve  the   appetite   and   make   depressed,  ��������� easily tired men and women cheerful,  active and strong.     Mr.   James   Mc-  Dougall, Little Shippegan, N.B., says;  "I have used Dr. William's' Pink P1II3  -as a tonic and blood purifier and have  found them superior to all other medi-  ���������eines."  If you need a medicine this spring���������  and who would not be1 the better ot  - a tonic after the long dreary in-door  months���������give Dr. Williams\ Pink Pills  a trial.   They will send rich, red blood  <��������� -coursing through your veins and give  you the buoyancy of perfect health.

On the contrary it distributes commendation or blame to  both political parties as the circumstances seem to warrant, and thereby  has secured the respect, not only of its  subscribers in the Wolseley district,  but of the Western world of news-  paperdom as a whole.    -  The editor of the News is Mr. W. H.  Hail, whose "counterfeit presentment"  ���������\dorns the head of this article. Mr.  lall is English by birthy a west countryman, having been born near Bristol.  He was educated ln the British grammar school, one of England's most  famous schools. He has been a resident of Western Canada for more than'  twenty years, coming to the country  In the boom year of 1882. His first  newspaper.- work was undertaken in  Portage la Prairie a year later. In  1885 he went to Virden arid' took  charge of the Virden Advance. For  eleven years he edited that paper, re-  I signing in 1896. Three years later  be took over the management of the  I Wolseley News, which under his  guidance has greatly improved In  -every important respect, and is now  one of the best weeklies in the Territories.

'    V      .        ���������-. \  The   subordination   or   personality  of the editor to the interest of the  paper of which he is the controlling  spirit is with some newspaper men a  belief as implicitly believed in as the  Thirty-nine Articles by an Anglican,  or the Wesminster Confession by a  Presbyterian. They believe that the  individuality of the man who writes  should not be obtruded upon his readers any more than the individuality,  of the tailor who measures him for his  clothes should be apparent to the public, or than the individuality of the barber who shaves him should be evident  to everybody who sees him walk down  the street. They hold that the newspaper business differs in no essential  'paTticular-from-any���������other���������busihess,-  and that, if a man is qualified for his  work, his paper will evidence the fact,  and he will get public support on the  merits of his publication, irrespective  of all personal and individual considerations. This is undoubtedly true, but  not the whole truth. It is a very  human characteristic to take a greater  Interest in any abstract proposition  when it ls identified with a personality.  By this means each become correlatives���������one Is always thought of in  connection with the other, and the  Interest of both are thereby advanced.  Even in Britain,1 the home of anonymous journalism, many of the papers  of greatest influence derive much of  that Influence because of association  with the personality of a man, and In  America the instances are numerous  where the power of a paper has simply  the measure of the personal influence*  of its editor. Greeley and Wattei^on  are past and present examples of the  trutn of tuls In the United States, and  in Canada many: illustrations of the  same truth could be cited. What made  uie Toronto Globe of the last generation .the 'IGrit Bible" but the personality of George Brown? What but the  individuality of W. F. Luxton made  the Manitoba Free Press of the 80's  the power it was in Western Canada?  And, in a smaller way, because of their  more limited sphere of subscribers,  the influence of many a Western Can-  adlan weekly ls acknowledged to ho  tne influence of Its editor, in a direct  and personal sense not usually under-  s'totid. Instances of tho truth of this  will occur to every ono who knows  anything of Western journalism���������  casqs in which the virile personality  of the man who runs the Institution  can be seen by the discerning, not  alone In every editorial, but In every  trial Item, and almost tn tho makeup  of the paper.  Thoro are othor mon who, if not so  obtrusively original, are still able, and  wnoBe paper from week to woolc is  almost the only means of knowlodge  possessed by thoir brothorn of tho  craft as to their personality. Of this  latter class Is Mr. W. K. Hall, of the  Wolseley News. To the generality of  the editors of the wast Mr. Hall Is  most generally known by tho copies  of his paper that from week to week  thoy find on thoir exchange desks.  And it must bo admitted that the estimate formed of tho man from his work  Is a favorable one. Tlio News is In  many respects one of the most orodit-  able of Territorial w^VHwe. Fow  vtOTtova, bpithvr fulfil the manifold requirements of that often discussed fcut  seldom seen sheet���������a good local paper.  Many other weekly papers In tho West  have a bettor mechanical equipment  than the News but few display moro  caro and taste in using tho lauuuoo  at their disposal. Its makeup and  presswork from weok to week show  unvarying care. Tho business announcements of the local merchants  aro displayed with a judgment often  lookod for In vain In much more pretentious papers. Its record of local'  happenings is In many respect* a  mo\lol to other Western editors, tbe  news being brightly written and woll  arranged. Being tbo only papor pub-  liKlii-ii in Wolseloy, It places local Interests abovo political bias, and is nl-  togt>tiier Independent ln its attitude.  Tub doua not Imply that tho Sow*  lilm Something More Than a Lore ol  Pretty Trifles.  Even in its modern form when ornament has been left almost wholly to  women it is something more than a  love of pretty trifles. On the persons  of the female members of his family  the man loves to see the display of the  wealth which in these days is power,  and, if modern taste will not allow it  in himself, it it still indulgent to his  vicarious display of it through his  women. So far as women themselves  consciously ta id and abet in this assertion of power, so far they may claim,  to be acquitted from the charge of  sheer vanity. Women of families who  have become recently rich love most  to display their jewelry,, and it may be  there is not so much vanity as assertion in it of their claim In virtue of  wealth to *be respected and honored.

But a strain of almost morbid conscientiousness drawn from a  long line of New England forbears prevented her from taking such a simple  view of the problems of life.  "No, Herbert," she said in" the course  of an animated dispute with Mr. Matteson, "I cannot turn my back upon  the promptings of duty. I have been  thoroughly educated���������expensively educated, at least���������as you know. More  than that, I'm a specialist I went  from college to Professor Arbuthnot's  laboratory.

Somehow I can't get  the hang of these modern philanthropic  Ideas. Here are you and I, plainly designed to be married, and some millions of children, equally destined to  grow up in happy ignorance of bugs  and butterflies. Instead of marrying  me you go off to teach them lower  forms of animal life. Result���������I'm miserable, you're lonely, they're disgusted.

But here in  Massachusetts there are plenty of girls  for all the men wbo wish to marry.  There'll be fewer superfluous women  by one if I go to work. Society has  made great sacrifices and gifted men  have spent tbeir lives to prepare me  for working. To be perfectly frank,  I think I am fit for something better,  industrially, than sewing on buttous."  "Don't doubt It; but I refuse to consider you industrially," observed Matteson.  "Ah, yes," cried the girl, throwing  her head proudly back! "a toy in a  gilded cage���������tired of, probably, as soon  as won; that's the man's idea of matrimony! Don't argue with me, Herbert.  It's breaking my heart to send you  away, but I must do It, nnd I beg you,  ob, I beg you, not to make it harder  for met"  At this outbreak Matteson began to  look uncomfortable. Ills silence roused  In Diana's mind the hope that he was  convinced by her cogent argument���������a  hope which proved that, much as she  know about invcrtebrata, sbe was llttlo versed in tho wnys of the higher  mammalia. For Matteson, a bullet  headed ex-right tackle with a magnificent record iu ground gaining and In  terforehce, was by no moans a "quitter," Nevertheless he kept silent for  somo moments, and when ho spoke bis  words were honeyed guile.  "I'll tell you what I'll do," ho said  ���������lowly. "I'll go away and not sec you  again unless you send for me, If you'll  kiss mo goodby."  "Not soo you again?" cried Diana  (Talbot aghast,  "But I don't want"���������  "I think it would be best," said,Mat-  toson gravely, "Your duty prevents  your marrying mo. Tbon I must learn  to forget you-tho sooner tho bottor.  You cannot expect to refuse mo as a  husband and keep mo as a lover, or  even as n friend. You mustn't make it  harder for rap,  Goodbyl"  Ho rose to go,  Pale and panting she confronted bim.  Tbon, flinging her arms about his neck,  ���������he klssod him passionately.

Of course, because of thoso relations, bo put tho best possible fact  upon the situation.  "1 do not know where Mr, Mnttoson  X" he would say when he felt called  f������on to say anything.   "I presume he  -'ent away on private business, but ho  said nothing to me about its nature.  As for tbe mills, of course it makes,  aot the slightest difference."  "Ob, of course."  Nevertheless the reply .became monotonous after some weeks, and at last  Rankine began $&*;ylng it occasionally  with a testy "Hefiayy be in Kamchatka fee-nil I'know."  Tbe "people shook tbelr heads, and  rnymor became gossip. Stripped of the  circumlocutory phrases proper In speak-  Injgr of a first citizen. Nepontlc was certain that tte chief proprietor of the  main industry of the town was Indulging in a "spree" of appalling dimensions.  For one, Mrs. Rankine was sure of it  because of her husband's persistent  reticence on the subject And because  she held Miss Talbot mainly responsible she found it hard to forgive that  young woman. Still, as they had been  in former years the closest friends and  were yet intimate, she felt it her duty  to call at Dr. Talbot's and acquaint  Diana with the rumors.  "Yes," said the young zoologist, looking out with sad eyes from a wan, unsmiling face, "I had heard the���������the stones,   uo you���������ao you Know r  "I know absolutely nothing about  ���������It.";   '.;    :':"   .  "What does Arthur think?"     ...  "What he thinks I can't say, because  I'm not a mind reader, and he doesn't  like to talk about it as you might suppose. He says he has not the slightest  idea where Mr. Matteson is, that all  his business affairs are in perfect order, and so on. And that is absolutely  all that I can get out of him. I really  think be knows nothing. He isn't worried as much as I should be, but, then,  men are queer."  A few days later Arthur Rankine,  called to St. Louis by business, dropped  Into a costly hotel, where he found  Matteson in good spirits, but eager for  news from home.  "I am glad you didn't tell me where  you were going," said Rankine, puffing  away at his cigar, with his feet comfortably resting on the table in Mat-  teson's room, "By the time 1 -rot your  letter the town was wild.

"If Ab bad gal lak dat Ab spank him,  mabbe two, free tarn a week, quaito  strong." said Antoine Le Caron, but no  one paid the slightest attention to his  disciplinary ideas.

An answering murmur of cordial assent greeted this appealing statement  * .      * * a-.... ..���������*''���������������������������*.  "Nothing is too astonishing to be  true, I suppose," said Matteson, as he  paused on Dr. Talbot's front porch to  mop his forehead. The day was warm  and sunny and there was a sweet  Bmell of blossoming wild currants in  the air.  "How well you are looking, Mr. Matteson." said Diana Talbot. "Shall we  sit upon the porch? It's pleasant today." '  "Wben I see you���������yes, it's pleasant.  Tell me. is it true, as they say in the  village, that you're going to marry old  Hawkins for the sake of a ready made  zoology class?"  Sbe flushed.   "Mr. Hawkins is only  sixty-seven." sbe said, "and an estimable man.    I find that he sympathizes  -witb-iny���������views-on-many���������points.���������Hois surprisingly liberal In his way of  looking at things."  "Is he going to let you,teach?" .  "I  have no opportunity here,"  she  said,  with some hauteur, "and since  mother's death I hardly like to go to  another town and leave father alone.  But Mr. Hawkins has no objection to  my prosecuting original research."  "In the vast leisure remaining after  looking out for five small children and  two old men?" queried Matteson. "How  generous! You could liave more time  as my wife, if that's all."  "No." she said, "you would consent  to anything now, but you are flippant.  You do not sympathize with me deeply,  seriously, as he does.   You would ridicule and Interrupt my life work.

"You-you brute!" sobbed the little  lady, bursting into tears.     ���������  "I'm afraid, dear," Arthur went on  after an interval of irrelevant discussion, "that I am something of a fatalist  about matters of, this sort.

THROUGH the fast gathering  mist, through the smoke that's1  London's own, the two women,  leaning, behold a gay company  of gallants rounding the far corner, 200  tcet away, linked arms, swords a-touch-  Ing, heels a-clattering; one voice hlgfe  and young uplifted in a lilt like this���������  Lady Peggy had heard that voice before:  "In years to come when gallants sing  In praise of ladies fair,  All will allow, l pledge you square,  That brighter, eyes ne'er banished care  Than thos������ that bade us do and dare  When George the Third was King!  Let roof and rafter chimeand ring;  Let echo shout It bacK; we sing  The merry days, my lords and sirs,  When George the Third was King!"  And at the chorus a brave dozen  more of pairs of lusty lungs to take it  up and urge it on with flashing rapiers,  knocking points, in the flare of the  lights from the coffee house at hand,  and good twelve of plumed hats a-tosB-  ihg in the txir and catch again, and  laughter loud and long, then dying  down as that fresh sweet voice begins  its second verse, and just so the old  charwoman knocks hastily at the door,  calling in Lady Peggy's head and  Chockey's from the open.  ��������� "'Haskin' your ladyship's parding,"  says she, "but I thought it no more'n  my duty to acquaint your ladyship, as  can't see from this 'eight, that your  ladyship's brother. Lord Kennaston, 's  a-comin' 'ome and a-bringin' with 'im  'is comrades, among 'em Sir Percy de  Bohun, and mayhap 'er ladyship 'd  like best"���������now addressing Chockey,  as Lady Peggy paced the floor in a too  evident agitation���������"like best," continued the dame, "to 'ide 'erself, and, hif  bo, the noble gentlemen, hall of 'em, Pm  _thinkin!���������_beinL_summat���������raised-j-with.  wine, my 'umble bit of a place bis hat  'er ladyship's service for the night or  as long as 'er ladyship s^es fit, for I  am this minute sent for to go down  into the ' country immediate, where,  God help us all, my tenth daughter,  what's married to her second husband,  lies at death's door."'  And all the while the old charwoman is speaking between her bits of  broken teeth Peggy hears that other  voice uplifted, ringing, gay, glad, care  free, as it seems to her strained ears,  up and down the darkening little  street, tapping at the window panes,  tapping at her heart strings and  stretching them to such a tension of  nnger, outraged pride and wounded  affection as never lady suffered before.  She thanks the old woman and hastily dismisses her; then, facing about  from the window, whence she has been  able to descry the merry group making  a rush Into the coffee house, bor ladyship, seized by a sudden mad Impulse,  gays to her woman:  "Chock, take my purse, tumble as  fast as your ttvo legs can carry you  down, out, across to the wlgmaker'ts  we laughed nt when we camo ln, buy  me tlio yellow wig, Chock, that adorns  the front, and como not back without It  au you lovo me, Chock. Wheedle, coux,  promise moro'n there is here," sticking tho purso In tho astounded woman's hand, "but get me tho wig that la  the very double of dear Sir Itoblu's  own ������weot ptito."  She pushes Chockey out on thc landing with an impetus that lends bor  well on hor ornind, and then, Blunting  and buttoning tlio door, Lady Peg������y  geti liorsolf out of her furbelowi and  petticoats, her itnyt**, hor bodice, hor  collar, brooch, kerchief, pocket, hoop  and Imii'pins and Into ber brother's  ���������ult of grnye, tho now waistcoat and  cruvnt she's brought him for a gift;  ���������he tips tho coffeepot nnd wnHhes her  face nud pretty throat nnd hands ln tlio  brown liquid; sho plnlts hor long hnlr  and winds It closo nnd tight nbout her  hond; sho buckles on KonnnNton'H court  rapier; who foteliM his gray plumed  hut with Its pun to buckl������ from the  press; sho ogles hcrnolf In tho six Inch  mirror; slin nxvnggora, bwIii*?**, struts,  and, snys she, dipping her linger ln the  soot of tho old chimney aud marking  cv.t two VhcV.

Up, girl!"  touching the speechless Chockey with  the rapier tip urgingly.   "And 'tis Sir  Robin McTart that bids you!"  The obedient and trembling waiting  woman was not much sooner out of  sight in the loft than again the voice  echoed up to where Lady Peggy stood  In the grewsome ambush of the landing, well back in the darkest corner  behind a pile of boards and debris,  bricks and dust and what not else tumbled there from the chimney during  the last and many previous storms.  Nearer came the song, then the chorus, broken now with more of chat and  laughter; the footsteps sound upon the  street, the house door opens, slams, and  up they troop, stumbling in the blackness, but knowing well the way, it  seems; merry, jocund, up, up, with the  refrain of the song still lingering amid  their talk in snatches, until they gain  the top.  "Are we then indeed at your door,  Kennaston?" cries the first to reach,  as he feels at the latch.        "  , "  "Split me, Escombe, you're there if  you can go no farther. Egad, sirs!"  cries the young host, "an I never reach  to pinnacle of fame's ladder, at the  least do I lodge as high as I could get,  a roof that suits my empty purse."  "Nay, Kennaston." Peggy, in her  man's gear, trembles- at sound of that  tone, for 'tis Percy who speaks now,  whiles they all push pellmell into her  twin's chambers, strike lights, pull out  candles from cupboard, stir the fire.  "Nay, Kennaston," says this one,  "while De Bohun lives there's ever a  full purse, lad, t' exchange for thy  empty one, and well thou knowst it"  "Tut, tut," answers the young man  ���������f letters, adding as he glances about,  " 'pon my soul, gentlemen, my Hebe  has been outdoing herself. Saw we  "eveTWf6W"i5~fpiinroom stools"!acking'  dust, floor riffraff, walls their festoons,  hearth its ashes, coffeepot its rust and,  by my life, the kettle filled and steaming?"  A peal of mirth greets this nimble  sally as the host pulls from the table  drawer a pack of cards and bis guests  from their pockets a dozen bottles.  "Dead broke am I, my lords and gentlemen," says he, "but here's the whole  court and tho deuce," flinging tbe pack  ln the midst of his guests; "Play away  an ye've a shilling left amongst ye.  Let it bo commerce or hazard. I'll bold  the counters, fill the glasses ns long as  there's a drop to pour. Keep a lookout  for sharpers," laughing, "and thank  God Pve even a garret wherein to welcome men of vogue like yourselves,"  A burst of applause follows this,  plumed hats are tossed aside, wrist  frills upturned. His grace of Escombe  ls shuffling tho pack. Sir Percy stands  with his back to the Are, cont skirts  held from tho cheerful blaze he's mnde.  Stools aro drawn up. The host takes  his silk kerchief from his throat and  polishes the mugs. Chockey has her  eye glued to a chink ln the cover that  divides her loft from tho scene of revelry below, when a bold knock sounds  at the door, and tbe master with a  cheery "Come along!" throws wldo the  portal.  Tho flno gentleman who stands boforo him makes a profound bow, to  which ho responds with one not loss  magnificent.  "Allow me, Lord Kennaston oif Ken-  niiBton, since It is, I am persuaded, tho  "vlllou* me, Lord Kcnnaaton,"  brother of Lndy Peggy Burgoyne  whom I havo tho pleasure of address-  fn-������"-~nwl nt hor mono Sir Vorey lota  his brocaded skirts Hop und starts forward cng-.Tly "of p.Wro-jrqlrijr. to pro-  scut to you this note lu the handwriting of your lordship's adorable sistor,  tho which sho gnve mo, wltcrowltb to  present nnd commond me to your lord-  fchlp'i good offices while 1 au up In  town."'  . Another salaam given and returned,  while Kennaston with grace ushers his  new acquaintance in, sets him a stool,  all the while eye quick perusing Lady  Peggy's scrawl.  "Gentlemen," says their host, "allow  me to introduce to you, and, sir, these  gentlemen to you, Sir Robin McTart  of Robinswold, Kent, his grace of Escombe, Sir Percy de Bohurij the Hon.  Jack Chalmers, Sir Wyatt Lovell," etc.  The which ceremony being concluded  amid many bows and all due forms of  mutual delight, tbe newcomer was cordially invited to take a hand in the  game.  Now. as true 'twas that Lady Peggy  had never been ln a coach until the  morning to which this was evening, so  true was it that ber ladyship had not  a farthing to her pocket left, and, although a good gamester's daughter,  she hesitated, making pretense of hanging her hat and of settling to its proper0 place her rapier and pinching her  ruffies. ~Whife she did so, the rest chatting, Sir Percy crossed the room and  in a tone that wns hot heard save by  the one he addressed said to Kennaston:  "As I live, sir, now's my chance. I'll  pick a quarrel with this jackanapes  that's dared to oust me from Peggy's  heart. Aye, will I, the sooiier the better! Blood Ml spill, Kennaston, or ever  that puppet aud 1 are thirty minutes  older! Mark me. your sister shall know  and hear I'm willing to die for her  sake or to kill!"     ���������   ���������'       ������ "  Peggy meantime in this second got  her courage well screwed up, and, with  a laugh fitly disguising her voice, said  she, seating herself with her legs well  under the table���������for at this particular  juncture her ladyship, looking down,  had beheld with dismay the womanish  and forgotten fashion of her shoes:  "Gentlemen, your humble servant's  fresh from Will's, where,' *pon my life,  such an apt company of wits and beaux  encountered I as swept my pockets  clean and left me not tbe jingle of a  shilling wherewith to bless myself.  Your grace, my lords, sirs and gentlemen." quoth Peggy with a fine inclusive wave of her hand, "will, I'm sure,  thus excuse me from the game tonight." ���������,.*���������'  BE KIND TO THY FATHER-  Be kind to thy father, for when thou wert  young, V  Who loved thee more fondly than he;  He caught the first accents that fell from  tny tongue, V  And joined in thy Innocent glee.

It is no argument for oppression  to say that the literature of Finland  has received impetus from the Czar's  iron hand. It^ is a common saying  among the Finns that only in their  religion and literature can they claim  to possess nationality. Political importance was given to their aspirations in 1901 by a prohibition which  the Russian Government placed upon  a Finnish professor who proposed to  give a lecture upon the subject before  an audience in .Ohristiania.  This arbitrary act increased public  interest in Finland and stimulated  the production of Finnish books, especially novels. There are half a dozen prominent novelists in Finland  to-day, two of them women, but1  they never dwell upon politics in  their writings and show no tendency  to teach revolution. Their ideals,  both political and social,    are    bor  rowed irom western rmrope.BO.neei*  tion, patience and hope are .tho  watchwords of the people and thein  leaders and spokesmen, and the Czar,  would be safer in Finland probably,  than in any other slice of his kingdom.

NEIL FERGUSON.  J. Stanley Todd', the portrait painter, was talking about feminine beauty^  "All blind men," he said, "are keen  students of feminine beauty. Let  them be as blind as possible in other  things, in this matter of women's looks  every woman is'mentally judged and  her value'reckoned by them, the same  as wines are judged and valued by the  wine expert. "But men set a value on  each woman in their own minds only.  They don't blurt out these values as a  certain Persian once did at a reception in New York. "The Persian was  of royal blood, and his hostess was  rather amused than horrified when, as  various women, were presented to him,  he would say: "This lady is easily \  worth $10,000. That dark woman  would fetch about $1,100 In the open  market, I would give $S00 for i,ie  blonde young girl in white cheerfully.  The one beside her should sell for $500  anywhere." "The hostess was so  amused that she said to the Persian,  with a coquettish laugh: "And what  value, sir, would you set on me?' '"I  am not acquainted with the small coin  of your country,' he said."  "^  YflU   MOff LOOK   TO  THE   LIVER  I  V jf You Would Have Good Digestion and Good  *   ' Health.   It Is Kept Aotive by  l%.  DR. CHASE'S KIDNEY-KIVER PILLS.  -y  At one of the western army posts in  the days of the Indian fights there was  a young lieutenant, who was careful  to see that the regulations relating to  saluting were faithfully observed. One  day a soldier who was leading an  obstreperous mule to water and had  both hands full employed in the task  was met by the lieutenant. The soldier, who had an occupation which demanded his undivided attention, failed  to salute the martinet, who immediately called him to account for his remissness. "Why do you not salute an .officer when you see him ?" he demanded, "You hold this mule and I will,"  calmly returned the man. But the  lieutenant did not insist, and the regulations were broken.

Bile in the intestines is necessary  to digestion and the healthful action  of the bowels.  Bile in the blood causes biliousness,  headache, jaundice, muddy complexion  and is the source of Innumerable pains  -8,11(1   <S.cll-BS  The lack of bile in the Intestines  brings on indigestion, constipation,  kidnoy derangements and a clogging  of the wholo digestive and excretory  systems! n     ���������  The liver separates bile from the  blood, where it is poison, and pours  it into the Intestines, where it is of  inestimable worth.  For this reason tho health of the  body is dependent on the health and  activity of the liver.  By making the liver active, when  it becomes torpid and sluggish, Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills insure a  healthful flow of bile into the intestines and the cure of all ailments arising from "bile poison," indigestion  and constipation.  Set the liver right by using Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills and you  will remove the cause of many pains  and aches, of many annoying symp  toms, of irritable temper and deprea*  ed spirits.  There is no liver regulator so certain of action, so quick to relieve, 80  lastingly beneficial.  Mrs. James Griffiths, Geneva Street  south, St. Cathrines, writes: "It give*  me great pleasure to speak ln com*  mendation of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver  Pills. For some years prior to thd  spring of 1900 I was afflicted with serious derangements of the digestive  functions and liver and kidney disorders. I tried many remedies without  the desired results, until I began the  use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.  After taking a few boxes of this med*  cine I was again enjoying all my former health and vigor, and, In fact, feet  Ing better than for ten years. Other  members of our family have also received the best results from the use of  this medicine, and I shall aways consider myself under lasting obligation  to Dr, Chase for what it has done for  me and mine."
