Small Fruit GrowiDg Pays
Well When Conditions
Are Right
Raspberries.— To obtain ths best
results, a deep soil, well drained and
with a large moisture holding capacity
is desirable. In the coast dit.tr.ets
where the humidity is high, it is advisable to obtain a site with a sufficient slope to give good air drainage.
The same method of preparation of
the soil as given for strawberries is
applicable here. Deep cultivation
and ploughing is advisable befoie
setting out a patch, especially on the
heavier soils.
Propagation—The roots of a raspberry are perennial, so the general
method of obtaining plants is to dig
up the one year old plants from the
bearing patch. It is also possible,
sometimes, to nse the suckers and re-
' plant them the same spring in which
they start, especially if weather and
soil conditions are favorable, '
Planting—This is done eilber in
{Jf.he fall or spring, depending on the
district, the condition of the land and
the grower. The planting distance
depends on the variety, type, and
condition of the soil and the district,
so that no distance which would be
satisfactory for all aitei can be given.
As a general rule, the rows are six to
eight feet apjart, and the plants set at
eighteen indies to two feet in a row.
They require' pruning before setting
in the same way as a one-year old
apple tree, i.e., roots trimmed and top
cut baek. Plant about three to five
inches deep, depending on the soil,
•Spread the roots, and pack the earth
*ell around them.
Training—It is found advantageous
to support the vines with trellis. This
is generally done the second or third
year. To accomplish this post, are
set thirty feet or so apart with a
cross piece at the top which should be
about' three and a hajf feet from the
ground,, on which two wires are
strung, one at either end of the cross-
piece. Within this space the vines
nre kept upright, bringing the plantation into better condition for cultivation ahd other cultural operations.
Pruning—Fruit is borne on the
one-year old wood, so that in pruning
nil canes that have borne fruit are removed, and the remainder thinned out
if necessary. The best time to prune
is immediately after the fruit is
picked, as hy leaving the old canes
they form an unnecessary drain uu the
plant fi od and soil moisture, The
taller of new canes should also be
pinched or cut back at the time so as
strengthen the bearing shoots for the
following season. They are again
gone over and cut back before growth
starts iu the spring. < Blackberries are
pruned in the same manner.
Good cultivation should be kept up
in the same manner as in a strawberry patch until midsummer or a
little later, depending on the soil and
nt, but   where they have been tried
in favorable districts they are   being |
sucuessfnlly   grown.   They   are produced in the States to the south of us,
both for the fresh and dried producta.r
They have been fouud to do well on
almost all types of soil, and are being
grown i-uccessfully on tha heavier
types. The same general remailis re
preparation of land as given nn strawberries are applicable here.
Propagation—They can be propagated by tipping, layering, or by the use
of cuttings. Tipping is generally
practised as described below.
Planting—This is done either in the
fall or spring, but spring plantiug is
generally practised, Planting distances
vary. One of the largest and most
successful growers ' nf this fruit in
Oregon has his rows eight feet apart
and the plant set the same distance
apart in the rows. A trellis is con
structed for the support of the vines
by placing posts in the rows every
thirty-two feet, on which are strung
thtee No. 12 galvanized wires in a
similar manner as on a grape trellis.
Pruning—The fruit is produced on
one-year-old wood, so in pruning all
the canes that have borne fruit are
removed; this should be done as .0011
alter fruiting at possible. The canes
ihould be cut oil at least fix inches
from the crown of the plant Ten to
twelve new canes ean- be left, and
these are wound round the trellis
wire so as to have them well dis
Cultivation—Good cultivation " is
ifiven until midsummer. The patch is
plowed in September, throwing the
furrows towards the vines. At that
time a number of the vines, where the
patch has received good care will have
reached the ground, and the tips of
these are plowed under, They take
rent and afford a supply of new plant-,
for selling, or use in the uew planta
tiou ths following spriug.
A logan berry patch when well
handled will yield good crops for
many years.
Currants and Gooseberries.—They
do best on a good deep soil, well
diained, retentive of moisture, and un
sites that will afford good airdrainags.
Propagation—By cuttings principally. Sometimes by tipping and
mound layering. They are generally
planted in hills about four to five feet
on the square.
Pruning—Gooseberries bear on one-
year-old wood and ou spurs which
bear profitably for two or three years.
It is advisable to cut out all wood
over three years old and keep a sup
ply of new shoots and two-year shoots
under way. The red and white currants bear principally 011 two-veur-old
wood and are pruned accordingly,
The information given in this article on each species of small fruit is
necessarily brief. Some of the more
important essentials to success have
been mentioned, which ihould prove
ot value to the grower who purposes'
planting small fruits. It should be
borne in mind that the profit which
is made on small fruits is due largely
to careful attention to cultural operations. Ths grower who intends planting should have sufficient labor in
view and should bo in a positiou to
look well after his plantation,

How Growth of the Forest* May be
Made to Increase the Grain Yields
How can the existence of forests at
the sources of a stream affect the
crops ln the district watered by the
Tbe question Is not hard to answer.
The chief need for the growth of all
plants is water. One of the best
known authorities estimates that field
crops use .100 to 600 tons of water
for every ton of dry material produced. This uses up the water ln
from 2 1-2 to 5 Inches deep of the
Naturally, the nearer the water is
to the roots of tbe plants, the eas'er
lt is for the plants to take up the water and the better the crop will grow.
Water, whether running free In the
stream or lying in the soil, will seuk
the lowest level. If tbe level of tlia
water in the stream falls, then tho
water In the soil (first from the near
neighborhood ot the stream, ami meu
from farther away) will find its way
to the stream, and the level of the
water In the soil will fall and so the
plants will find it harder to get water.
In order to keep up the level of the
streams ln the summer, there must be
a constant flow of water from the
head-waters. It Is well known that,
when the forests are cut away, the
water from the melting of tbe snow
In spring and the rains of other seasons flow away rapidly. Often causing damage by floods. The dry seasons ot the summer find the streams
almost dry.
The soil ln the forest, however, Is
of a spongy nature and soaks up the
water falllUT on It, afterwards giving
lt out gradually and bo furnishing an
even supply to the streams and enabling them to keep up their levels.
The higher the level of the stream
Is maintained, the higher will be the
level of the water In the soil, and the
easier the plants will find It to grow.
It Is for reasons often outlined that
lt Is so Important to the farmers of
the West that tlte Dominion forest

Removal From Calcutta to Delhi
Righto an Ancient Wrong
The commercial Instinct of the East
India Company led lt to perpetrate a
great outrage upon Indian national
susceptibilities by removing the capital to Calcutta. Ever since tlio days
of civilization Delhi had figured as the
Government seat. The Hindi;, und
Moslems both had favored it In this
way. Off and on In the ciu^se of
centuries whimsical rulers had jilted
India's hub for some other favored
city, but sooner or later the lucky
metropolis always managed to gain
the upper hand over its rivals,
The East India Company, knowing
little of and caring less for the sentiments of Indians, established the capital of India at Calcutta, for, situated
as it was on the banks of the Hooghly,
a navigable river, It was easy of access from the sea, whereas Delhi was
hundreds of miles from any port,
When the suzerainty of the peninsula was transferred from the commercial corporation to the British
Crown at the close of the Indian Sepoy
Mutiny in 1857, Hindustan hoped that
lustlce would be done to its imperial
city; but lt has been disappointed.
Again expectation ran high when
the Assemblage was held at Delhi In
1877, especially ln view of thc fact
that the British by that time had
learned enough about their Oriental
subjects to convene the Durbar there
instead of at Calcutta; but the people
once more were doomed to disappointment. When King Edward was proclaimed Emperor of India ln 1903 the
natives were thrilled by the same
hope, only to have It dashed to the
Thus lt has been reserved tor King
George V. to right this wrong and
make all Hindustan happy over lt.
Only a very limited number of people
will decry this measure. Among them
no doubt are the alien and native merchants and property holders of Calcutta, who have fed and fattened on
'hi necessities of those who must per-
'o'-ce make their homes ln the capital.

Ideas Worth Money
Ideas are worth money. Send in
good suggestions and we will pay you
for them.'
The Pennsylvania Railroad announced recently the results attained by the
above order, which was sent out to
its employees some time ago. It said
the response was Immediate. Many
of the ideas sent in, moreover, proved
valuable, and their originators received rewards In cash for them.
A clerk ln one of the roundhouses
won a premium by submitting a plan
for Increasing economy by further use
of carbon sheets, which remain In repair card books after the cards have
been filled in and removed. He devised a way of using this carbon paper with one of the company's forms
for ordering material from the warehouses. A tinsmith in one of the
shops discovered an Improved method
of fastening in engine cabs tbe boxes
which contain flags, torpedoes and
medicine case. He received pay tor it.
A fireman saw a way to minimize the
loss of coal through vibration by
standardizing the heights of coal
gates on locomotive tenders, and received an ample reward for the idea.
There were many other suggestions
from employees which were consider
ed worthy of financial reward.

National Drink of Tibetans—Fermented Coconut Milk
Arra may be said to be the national

One Kind of Boss    -
Apropos of scientific management
and the miracles it performs, Jerome
S. McWade, the Duluth capitalist said
the other day:
"An interesting part of scientific
management is the weeding out of the

boss who, to show his authority, is
always interfering with his men.
"A boss of this description was overseeing the removal of a lot of dirt on
a railway contract of mine. It happened that one of the workmen's wheelbarrows squeaked dreadfully. The
man, therefore, turned the barrow
over, and he was beginning to grease
it, when the boss rushed down upon
him like an avalanche.

To make sure that tho boy was
not disobeying the bass fishing law,
the game warden took the string of

Don't let repairs
eat up your profits
Whether they represent actual cash outlay, or
only the time of yourself and your help, repairs
are waste just the same. When you make an
improvement—no matter how small its cost may
be—let it be permanent. Then it is a real investment, something on which you can realize in cash should you decide to
sell your property; and something that will pay you constant
dividends in convenience, sightliness and comfort as long as
the farm remains your own.
Concrete Improvements Are Permanent
They last as long as the very hills themselves. They do not
require experts to build them. Their first cost, in most cases,
is no more than for inferior materials.

Zam-Buk Worked a Miracle of Healing.
Reverend Gentlemai. Fully-
Miss Kate L. Dolllver, of Caledonia,
Queens Co., N. S., says: "I must add
my testimony to the value ot Zam-Buk.
Ulcers and Bores broke out on my
arm, and although I tried to heal them
by using various preparations, nothing
seemed to do me any good. The sores
spread until trom fingers to elbow
was one mass ot ulceration.
"I had five different doctors, and
faithfully carried out their instructions. I drank pint after pint of blood
medicines, tried salve after salve, and
lotion after lotion; but it was of no
"My father then took me thirty
miles to see a well-known doctor. He
photographed the nrm and hand. This
photograph was sent to a New York
hospital to the specialist', but they
sent word they could do nothing fur-
thor for me, and I was ln despair.
"Ono day a friend asked me If I had
tried Zam-Buk, I said I had not, but
I got a box right away. That first
box did me more good than all the
medicine I bad tried up to that time,
so I continued the treatment. Every
box healed tbe sores more and more
until, to make a long story short, Zam-
Buk healed all the sores completely.
Everybody in this place knows of my
caso and that tt is Zam-Buk alone
which cured mo."
Minister corroborates.—The Hev. W.

liver's minister, writes: "ThiB Is to
certify that the testimonial of MIbb
Dolllver is correct aB far as my knowledge goes. I have known her for a
year and a half, and her cure effected
by Zam-Buk Ib remarkable."

Jane Austen's Sailor Brother
The House of Commons has declined to abolish prize money, and,
Indeed, when one remembers the great
people who have enjoyed and been
encouraged hy it, one Is not sorry.
Jane Austen's sailor brotherB were
awarded for their valor in this way.
Charles Austen was lieutenant of the
Endyminlon, under Captain Philip
Durham, ln 1800.
On the occasion of the capture of
the Scipio tie encounter took place
in a violent gale; but in spite of .vi.iil
and weather he put off in a boat 'villi
only four men, and boarded the vessel.
Jane v Austen writes to tell her slatar
Cassandra how he spent his prize
"Charles has received £30 for his
share ot the privateer, and expects
£10 more; but of what avail Ib it to
take prizes it he lays out the produce
iu presents for his Bisters? He lias
been buying gold chains and topab
crosses for ub. He must be well scolded. I shall write again by this post
to thank and reproach him. We
shall be unbearably fine." '
These Pills Cure Rheumatlsm.—To
many who suffer from rheumatism a
trial of Parmelee's Vegetable Pills Is
recommended. They have pronounced action upon the liver and kidneys
and by regulating- the action ot these
organs act as an alternative In preventing the admixture ot uric acid
and blood that causes this painful disorder. They must be taken according
>o directions and used steadily and
'hey will speedily glvo evidence of
their beneficial effects.

Tho money that was co recklessly

was never worked for by blm. It waa
never earned, never accumulated nor

wbom it was bequeathed, whether unexpectedly, or after long and impatient waiting, had never watched lt

wastes the harvest. Perhaps this Is
why we accept lt as a truth that "the

The human body Is the busiest factory in tho world. There Ib no eight
hours day, no slack season, no holidays, no cessation of labor at any
time, Day and night work Is being
carried on ln the workshop of your
body, and it never ceases until the
engine—the heart—stops forever.
The foctory of your body haB its
motive power, without which it would
have to close down at once. That
motive power is the blood, healthy,
rich, red blood which keeps your
whole system efficient and which
drives away all diseases that may attack it.
Good, red blood Is the chief
controller of *every action; the source
of all the energy you possess. It builds
up every substance of your muscles,
nerves, sinews and flesh. It removes
the waste and poisonous products constantly created In your body, which,
If allowed to remain Bet up disease
and weakness of every kind. Good
blood glveB energy and vitality to the
nervous system, besides regulating
the function of the stomach, Intestines
liver, kidneys and other organB of the
body. Briefly, on the purity and richness ot your blood the health of your
whole body depends.
Often the blood begins to tall and
becomes thin and poor ln quality. It
becames loaded with waste matter and
charged with poisons. Then It Is that
the motive power of your bodily workshop goeB wrong, your physical machinery becomeB disorganized and you
fall 111. You become anaemic: maybe
the nerves break down, or you begin
to suffer from indigestion, neuralgia,
general debility, severe headaches,
pains In the back or side, rheumatism,
or even paralysis.
In all failures of the blood Dr. Williams Pink Pills are the beet known
remedy. These pills actually make
new, rich blood, which brings health
and energy to every part of the body.
Thousands and thousands of people,
not only ln Canada, but all over the
world, testify to the truth of this
statement. The following Is a bit of
proof. Mrs. Fred Strieker, Jr., Moose-
field, Ont., sayB: "A few years ago
I was a physical and nervous wreck;
V had pains throughout my whole body.
I hsd no appetite and my stomach felt
as if there was a big lump in it. The
least exertion would make my heart
beat violently, and I would be attacked
with trembling spells, and such a
weakness that my breath would come
In gasps. I was under a doctor'B care
for nearly two months, but got very
little relief. I then tried other remedies, but with no better results. Finally I decided to try Dr. Williams
Pink Pills and this was the first medicine that reached the root of my
trouble. After taking the plllfl a few
weeks I waa much better, and by the
time I had taken ten boxes I was entirely recovered. I now always keep
the pills In tho house and If I feel the
least worn out take an occasional
box and feel all right again."

Mr. Daniel Crawford, who recently

some of his experiences during the
twenty-two years that he dwelt with
cannibals ln the centre of the dark
Speaking of the cannibalistic traits
of tlie natives ho said he knew tbe
postal address of a man who had several bodies burled. Before he feasted
off one ho would murmur a prayer
and an apology, "O corpse, I havo rescued you from the cold, clammy soil
and I am now going to give you the
honor of a human Interment." One
of his "boys" accldently Bliot his father, and as lt is a cannibal point of
etiquette that one may not eat one's
own father, ho passed the body along
to several of his friends.
Once a cannibal chief whom he was
seeking to improve asked what happened when there had been a battle
between 10,000 white men, and when
told that they were alL decently bur-
ted, exclaimed, 'Oh, look at tho waste;
the white man kills for murder only,
but the black man kills to live."

Facts About Indigestion and
Its Relief "That Should
Interest You
Althuuj.li Indigestion and Dyspepsia are so prevalent, most people do
not thoroughly understand their cause
and cure. There is no reason why
most people should not eat anything
they desire—if they will only chew it
carefully and thoroughly. Many actually starve themselves into sickness
through fear of eating every good-
looking, good smelling, and good-
tasting food; because it does not agree
with them.
The best thing to do is to fit yourself to digest any good food.
We believe we can relieve Dyspepsia. We are so confident of this fact
that we guarantee and promise to supply the medicine free of cost to every
one who will use it, who is not perfectly satisfied with the result? which
it produces. We exact no promises,
and put no one under any obligation
whatever. Surely, nothing could be
fairer. We are located right hero,
and our reputation should be sufficient
guarantee of the genuineness of our
We want every one troubled with
Indigestion or Dyspepsia in any form
to come to our store and buy a box of
Uexall Dyspepsia Tablets. Take thero
home and give tbem a reasonable trial,
according to directions. Then, if not
satisfied, eome to u» and get vour
money back. They are very pleasant
to take; they aid to soothe the irritable stomach, to strengthen and invigorate the digestive organs, and to promote a healthy and natural bowel action, thus leading to perfect and
healthy digestion and assimilation.
A 29c. package of Rexall Dyspepsia
Tablets furnishes 15 days' treatment,
ln ordinary cases, this is sufficient to
produce a cure. In more chronic cases,
a longer treatment, of course, is necessary, and dependi upon the severity of
the trouble. For such oases we hare
two larger sizes  which  sell for  50c.
There arc people who are certain
tbat one good turn deserves three.
Of Interest to Farmers
The provincial department of agriculture, with the Hs-aistince of the
minister of agriculture for the -Dominion, offers for 1912 prizes for
field grain, potatoes, corn, field
roots, and fodder crops.
These competitions are to be organized by the provincial department of agriculture and conducted
under the auspices of the fanners'
institutes, and each institute may
provide competitions for not more
than two kinds of crops. Competi
tors will be allowed one entry in
only one institute, and fields enter-
ad must be within tbe area gov-'
erned by that institute.
Notification of competitions proposed, witB crop" ..elected, must be
forwarded to the department of
agriculture, in Victoria, not later
tbau May 15. Ten bona fide entries
must appear for each competition,
and au entry fee of not less than M)
cents nor more than $1,000 will be
In each competition not less than
875 must be offered in .cash prizes:
FirBt $20, second $10, third $12,
with prizes for every additional five
entries over ten as follows: Fourth

Of this amount $60 will be paid by
the province, tbe remaining $16 partially defrayed by entry fees, to be
contributed by tbe institute.'
The British Columbia department
of agriculture, at it. o_.ij_._Hti. wil
furnish judges, but wbere necessary
the institute must furnish a non-
interested guide to the country.
Further regulations governing the
competition will be forwarded  later.
Disease in Potatoes
Owing to tho shuriage in the potato
crop this year, dealers and some
growers of potatoes find it necessary
to import large supplies for table and
seed purposes from Great Britain,
Ireland and other European countries.
Bulletin 63 issued by the Dominion
experimental fai m. Ottawa, explains
how potato canker has found its way
across the Atlantic into Newfoundland with potatoes imported from
Potato canker is a disease at |prcs
ent unknown in Canada. It is one of
the most serious diseases known, affecting not only the farm lands on
which the potatoes are grown, but the
disease is also directly injurious to
the health of the consumer of affected
potatoes. Boiling does not destroy
tbe injurious properties. The disease
is characterized by nodular excres-
senccs which may often be larger than
the tuber itself. These cankers affect
theeyes of the (potato and ate very
small in the early stages. Any tubers
found with smaller or larger outgrowths rising from where the eyes
are situated should under no condition be used for seed or table purposes, The introduction und establishment of this disease would seriously compromise one of the most im
portant agricultural industries of
Canada,viz., potato glowing. Farmers
and consumers should be exceedingly
careful in using potatoes that may
have been imported from tireat
Britain or tbe continent of Europe,
Suspicious looking tubers sbould le
destroyed by fire and not be thrown
on the ground, or the disease, if present, will establish itself permanently
in the ground.

detail the character of the disease and

The Bsautiful Picture for Grand Forks Sun and Montreal Family Herald and Weekly Star Subscribers r
this Season.   c_/l_n Inspiration of Love and
Affection—c_/l Picture that will be like a
Member  of  the  Family—A   Daily
Study for Old and Young
'PHI*. Family Herald and Weekly Star of Montreal, acknowledged to be
1 the greatest and best family and farm paper on the Continent, has on
many occasions given ils renders nwi-t delightful premium picture,
but this season they have secured wbat is beyond any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper readers. It is entitled "Home
Again" nnd describes n touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation. e
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winners
of many prizes at dog snows, the pride ol the family and neighborhood,
has been stolen, and after many days' absence he escapes one night from
his captor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning with thc rope
which ho broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar bark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, to the door nnd
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome hy putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting bis head agiinst her breast with a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager hoy with bair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; tbe warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate annB around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture tbat will win a favored place
on the walls of any home.
The picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
The beautiful picture "Home Again" on heavy plate paper 22x29
inches all ready for framing will be mailed FREE to every subscriber of
The Sun and Family Herald and Weekly Star for 1912.
The small sura of $1.50 will secure the two papers for a full year including a copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which alone is
easily worth a two dollar bill, in fact it could not be bought at that price.
Every home in the Boundary should get the big $1.50 worth this

Interesting Discoveries In the Palace
of a Roman Emperor
Prof. Bonl's explorations of the
house ot Domltian, on tbe Palatine
between the house ot Augustus and
that ot Tiberius, are leading to Interesting archaeological discoveries. So
far the researches have been limited
to the areas of the atrium, or roofed
court, with Its prolongation, or tab-
llnium, and to the triclinium, or dining hall.
In the court a rectangular central
piscina with remains of an octagonal
basin Inside of it has been discovered,
whllo on the walls small nltches and
low marble pillars have been found,
and these are evidently Intended for
small bronze statues and figures of
birds and animals, which serve as
ornaments to the fountain. All the
marble facing of the piscina has disappeared and only the bricks which supported the marble slabs that covered
the sides and bottom of the basin havo
been found.
The finds In the triclinium consist
of a great portion of the pavement in
small slabs ot precious marbles laid
over bricks placed upright so as to
prevent dampness trom damaging the
marble, several large fragments of
columns and broken pieces from tho
walls and celling. Evidently the building collapsed owing to an earthquake
followed by a fire which completed its
destruction. Perhaps some ot the
sculptures were save from the ruin,
but tbe building was left as tt fell.
In time earth accumulated over It
and the grass grew. Pope Paul III.
between 1534 and 1650 laid out the
Farnese Gardens over the site where
the house of Domltian stood. Two
hundred years later the first excavations took place and the archaelogist
Blanchlnl discovered the walls of the
court and dining-room covered with
rare marbles, which he removed. He
carried away sixteen Corinthian columns of Numldlan marble of extraordinary size and excellent workmanship,
colossal statues ln marble and bronze
and other works of art, some of which
are In the museums ot Naples and

Spasms of
And   Frantic   Qacplng   for   Breath
Common to Bronchitis and '
Both bronchitis and asthma are diseases of the nerves aB well as of the
bronchial tubes, and for this reason
only slight irritation or excitement is
required to bring on the terrible
coughing spells and frantic gasping
for breath.
There is nothing like Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine to
bring relief to sufferers from bronchitis and asthma.
It soothes the Irritated nerves, cases
and prevents the attacks ot coughing
and enables the system to throw off

The hotel visitor had taken his dinner elsewhere with a friend. When
on coming to pay his bill, he found
himself charged with a day's board,
ho protested vigorously. It was explained to him that the American plan
adopted there was based strictly on
a day rate, and that it he chose to eat
elsewhere lt was his own look-out.
Tho man, however, refused to be pacified, and paid tbe bill under protest.
Then, to everyone's surprise, he asked

When he finally reached his limit, the
waiter handed him a bill for a good

"What's that for?' he demanded.
"Your dinner,  sir."
"But I have already paid for my

"Then you should have gone Into

Individual Effort
This Is essentially an age of cooperation, and wisely so, for It Is Just
as true to-day as lt ever was that "In
union there Is strength." But this
highly developed spirit ot unity, however wise in other respects, has some
regretable features. There Is a growing belief that individual effort
counts for naught—that it Is only
through some powerful organization
that real results may be obtained. But
organizations, at their best can only
work for the betterment of the Individual, a function which the Individual Is highly equipped to perform for
himself. Ill fact, If the world was
peopled wltb a race ot perfectly developed Individuals, such organizations
would not be needed. So here—In
self-betterment—we find a field where

statemet of facts, antl we want you to
substantiate them at our risk.
Rexali Orderlies a're eaten just like
candy, are particularly ,prompt and
agreeable in actiou, may be taken a"t
any time, day or night; do not cause
diarrhrea, nausea, griping, excessive
looseness, or otlier undesirable effects.
They have a very mild but positive
action upon the organs with which
they ceme in contact, apparently acting as a regulative tonic upon the re
laxud muscular coat of the bowel,
thus overcoming weakness, and aiding to restore the bowels to a _uiore
vigorous and healthy activity.
Rexall Orderlies are unsurpassable
and ideal for the use of children, old
folks and delicate persons. VVe cannot
too highly recommend them to all sufferers from any form of constipation
and its attendant evils. That's why
we back our faith iii them with our
promise of money back if they do not
give entire satisfaction. Three size?:
