' Many a good resolution is already tottering to its ruin, "while  here and there a few are already  dead to the world.  - It is thought by some people,  that at; least two of the license  commissioners in Greenwood  should be hotel men.  Early yesterday morning a long  line of water wagons took to the  road. Most of them will be in the  ditch before the month is out.  In Revelstoke the other Sunday  a preacher in the pulpit shouted,  ������'Is the young man safe!" Yes, if  he reaches the base before the ball.  The editor of Cotton's Weekly  remarks that Canada is the fall  guy for tho British war lords. He  does not explain the meaning of  guy.  ���������We have received a copy of the  Christmas number of the Vernon  News. It is the largest paper of  the kind that haB ever been issued  from the town a size of Vernon.  License commissioners bave no  right to permit hotelkeepers to  break the law, and if any loss or  damage is caused an individual  through the law being broken,  then the city becomes equally liable  with the hotel men for such cases.  During the month of December,  the editor o'f Greenwood's leading  excitement, did not use any tea,  booze, coffee or tobacco, and had  from two to three square meals  day. This is a record held by no  other poet or editor in the world.  u jf  The Eeview ia the name of paper  just started at Sidney, a rising  town on, Vancouver Island.

It is "a dream of a dreamer who  dreams he is dreaming."  If you were to wake" up some  morning with the consciousness  that you were utterly free to do as  you please, you would be paralyzed.  Human life is possible only under the condition of certain laws;  human happiness is found only in  obedience to those laws.  I said freedom is even inconceivable. ' Theologians assert that  God himself is not above His laws.  We cannot grasp the unconditioned.  The primeval- savage in the  jungle is bound in a hundred ways,  he has less freedom than the poor  lady at court. For we are freer  now than were our ancestors,  merely because we have developed  law to a higher decree. The only  way, it seems, to get freedom is to  take it away.  Legislatures and courts are constantly limiting the freedom of the  individual. They dictate the hours  he shall work, the pay he shall get,  the way his children shall be  taught, when he shall fight and  keep the peace, and a hundred  other limitations of his desires.  There is not such thing as freedom: What we mean when we  say the word is justice in laws.  For the only freedom is justice.  -Dr. Frank Crane.  Gordon  cially    represented    by  Buukle of Vancouver.  At present by far the greater  proportion of British Columbia's  fresh lamb and mutton supply  comes, as it always has, from  Oregon and otber states to the  south, although of late years New  Zealand and Anptralia have been  contributing appreciably, thanks  to cold storage facilities.  That British Columbia should  grow its own supply, having hundreds of beautiful valleys now in  waste land that are eminently  adaptable to*sheep husbandry is  the conviction of Mr. Farnsworth  and his apsociates, and they have  accordingly taken, np twenty-five  sections of beautiful land, comprising Homo 10,000 acres, in the  Naas river valloy, whore thoy will  establish their industry almost  immediately, with an initial flock  of two thousand selected sheep.  Incident to this enterprise the  provincial public works department is in which he says:  "I bog now to make formal  application for the construction of  a trail in tho Naas river district,  i  from the end of tho pieseut trail at  Alice Arm east to the junction of  the White and Flat rivers, about  ten miles from the foot of Meziaden  lake. I have acquired twenty-five  sections of land in that vicinity  and have men there this winter  making preparations for a sheep  ranch which I propose to establish  next summer provided your government will put through this trail so  that we can get across to^the land.  "I may say that it is impossible  to drive sheep into that country  over the trail built this year from  Stewart to Meziaden lake owing to  its narrowness and the dangerous  character of the country it traverses.. On the other hand it will be  an easy matter to get in from Alice  Arm, as the country is open and  the divide to be crossed a low one.  In fact that all will be necessary  will be three short bridges and perhaps some brushing through "the  thickest part.  tenance of the trees on the mount-  '' *    \ <   ' < i *  ain slopes for the purpose of wat'ir  conservation!

The new industry is expected to be established  next spring when at least 2,000  sheep will be driven to the site of  the syndicate's holdings between  the south end of Meziaden lake and  the Flat river, a tributary of the  White river, via Alice Arm. While  Stewart will be the supply point  for the ranch it will be necessary,  however, to toke the sheep in from  the south, as it would be impossible  to drive a large flock over the narrow pack trail existing between this  point and Meziaden lake���������the  shortest route to the range���������as  they Would be liable to crowd one  another off. In outlining the scope  of the enterprise the southern paper  publishes the following article:  A long step forward in the direction of placing British Columbia  in the position of being independent in tbe matter of fresh meat  supply is contemplated by a group  of Boston capitalists, headed by  W. A.  Farnsworth, and'provin-  Norway Cod  Cod fishing is one of tho greatest  ���������if not the greatest���������industry in  Norway. It is estimated' that the  total value of the cod catch of this  year is about $6,000,000. When  to this is added the value of the  by-products, wo get a total of  about $10,000,000, or $7,000,000  kroner.    A great amount of the  r t  catch is sun-dried, and exported to  Sweden, America and .Canada,  where it is used under the name of  lut-fisk. ( No Scandinavian, wherever he may dwell, feels that tho  jnle-tide ', is fittingly observed if  lude-fiek is omitted from his bill  of fare. The great Norwegian  fishing banks at Lofoten, Finn-  marken and Romsdalen lank  second only to the great Newfoundland banks, but when it is recalled  that the fishing period of the latter  place extends virtually over six  months, -that is, from April to  October, the Norwegian banks  must be rated the highest for there  the fishing months are only the  latter part of January, February  and March. During this time the  Norwegian fishing banks teem with  boats. At Lofoten alone about  40,000 men with a fleet of about  8,000 vessels are busily engaged in  the catch. Both nets and lines  are used, but the latter is by far  the most usual. Four hundred  fish per man is regarded as a good  day's catch'. Years ago the fishermen were often obliged to sell at a  sacrifice,  but with better  means  i  of communication and increased  demand, both from the foreign and  the home market, the fishermen  are now getting better pay for their  catch than ever before.  cyclone cellars to provide-sa  from the windstorms that are  coming common in the state."  This is the conclusion of Al P.  Sandles, secretary of tlie Ohio Etate  Board of Agriculture, after a iare-  ful investigation of storm damage  through the state during the present year.  Sandles, who always is digging  through tho facts connected with  agriculture in the state, is/ strong  for more trees. He is fimly convinced that, with thous&nds of  acres of trees growing, theie.would  bo Ipss storm damage, ' more surplus moisture stored up! in tbe  earth for the benefit of thegrowing  crops and a better condition gener-  ally for all 'the people. His first  advice is to plant trees, if he-has  anything further it would be to  keep on planting trees.  "The storage of surplusmoisture  for the growing crops is largely de-  pendent on the timber area about  the headquarters of stream and  near the farms" Sandles claims.  He insists that, with more trees'in  the state there would be more and  better corn, oats,'wheat and hay  and even the high cost of living  would be given a fatal thrust if the  trees were planted and natural conditions for this climate restored.  "The state'ought to have thousands of acres of new growing trees  planted next year, he says. We  ought to increase the acreage of  trees planted "everys year until the  denuded hills again are covered  with the trees that are supplied by  nature when the country was wild.  With thit will come the restoration  of natural conditions and the state  will be much more prosperous.  Plant tho trees, fertilize the acres  that have yielded uncomplainly for  over a CBntury, use sound judgement in tbe rotation of crops and  Ohio will again produce a score of  bushels of wheat per inhabitant and  tho queption of the- high' cost of  food stuffs in that line,  will have  been settled."  \  pressure ' with high temperature.

Duncan Marshall, minister  of agricul.ure for Alberta, has  placed an order with a firm in  Montreal for a thousand pure-bred  Barred Plymouth Rocks, Rhode  Island Reds, Buff Orpingtons and  White Wyandottes for delivery  early next jspring to the provincial  poultry farm' in Edmonton. The  birds are solely for breeding purposes. Stock and eggs will be delivered to farmers and poultry  growers direct from the experimental farms in various parts of  the province. It is expected that  several thousand high-grade birds  will be added to the flocks during  the coming year. Mr. Marshall  believes tbe best way to encourage  the industry is to assist the farmers.        ,  Artificial Coal  {That New Zealand will call upon'  British ' Columbia and (with the  completion of, the Panama Canal)  eastern Canada for timber supplies  to a greater extent as years'.go by,  is proved by ,the following, extract  of a report;, by the New Zealand  Lands Department: > ,' ',       ' -;  , | 'From ,the more accurate information that is now available, it  will be seen that there is ample  justification    for' the   diminished  ' * i '    <���������  estimate of our timber supply. An  impression prevails that, owing to  the increased use of substitutes for  timber in, constructions of build-,  ings, the future demand may not  be so great as was anticipated.'  But, as the population of tbe Dominion (New Zealand) is constantly, increasing, and there is'rapidly  increasing demand for timber in  every branch ofrindiiBtry, we must  realize that our timber resources  will be taxed to their.utmost capacity in a very few years, and the  future' generations - wiU have, to  face a serious' problem that, up to  now, has, not been regarded, with  much concern.   - *  "Out, of the gross amount of  milling timber, .estimated to exist  at the present time, the report  continues" it will be noticed that  nearly one-third is composed of  timber riot 'commercially used ' to  any extent, also a large portion is  situated, on land, too difficult'of  access to be profitably worked for  many years -to come. The,,net  quantity likely to be available ,for  saw milling would therefore  amount to 16,000,000,000 superficial ffiet. > .    '  The report goes on to state that,  as the present output of timber is  over 400,000,000 superficial feet,  it is a' fair assumption that'-ihe  average output for the next generation will be about 450,000,000  superficial feet. If the present  estimated supply is divided by this  amount, it will be seen that there  is only sufficient timber to last tbe  sawmiller 'for about thirty-five  years, and this is without taking  account of the inevitable loss that  periodically occurs through accidental fires.  During this period large supplies  of foreign timber might be expected  to arrive, and so reduce the strain  on local forests, but, as every  country in the world would be  feeling the effects of the universal  demand, it was not to be expected  tbat such timber could be procured  after ten or twenty years, save at  much higher prices than now current, and in,gradually decreasing  quantity. *    -  The annual output in British  Columbia at the "present time is  about one and a half billion feet,  or over three times the consumption of New Zealand, and this is  only one-quarter of the possible  production, the sister colony will  be able to secure timber for many  years. But British Columbia  woods stand a tremendous risk  from fire. Only through adequate  fire protection will this province  be able to hold her'place in the  lumber world.  .i -.

The Island of  Anticosti olone is able to produce  80,000 to 100,000 cords per annum,  for years, a good portion of which,  however, will probably be converted into pulp in tbe near future,  as a large mill is now in process of,  erection there.

The move was a trying one foe  all, and they hud been some time set'  tied In their new 'quarters before thei  garrison resumed its wanted good humor.  As soon as the furniture was In position and the trunks, boxes and barrels unpacked, the officers' wives���������there'  were two captains and four lieuten-1  ants, all married���������got together to fire!  blank cartridges or empty words- at;  the major. They began Dy calling him  u brute, a monster, a devil, but finally  simmered down to applying no more  disagreeable name to him than crusty  old bachelor. Then the meeting resolv-'  ed itself Into a committee of the whole  to express its .dissatisfaction *at the  treatment It had received and take  measures against Its recurrence.  There was one dissenting voice in the,  clatter' of tongues. ' Mrs.* Captain Ferguson, a good natured, motherly woman, avowed that the major was right;  that an army encumbered with'women and children would be better equipped with blank cartridges; that the  army was no place for them, and, be-,  Ing an encumbrance, they should bear  patiently any scolding, the commander  chose to give them.  A couple of months after tbe hegira  a, niece of, Mrs. Ferguson���������Miss Gwen-  dolin Brayllng, a young lady of nineteen���������came, out from the east to visit  her aunt'When the major heard of  her arrival he sniffed the air ominously. The ladles whom Mrs. Ferguson  had reproved for their strictures on the  major at once to'ok notice, wondering  how the new impedimenta���������as they  had come to facetiously style Miss  Brayllng���������wonid affect the major.  "Did you ask permission to have ber  come?" asked Mrs. Lieutenant Hark  ness of Mrs. Ferguson.  "I did not," replied Mrs. Ferguson  "I shall take care of her in every re-  Bpect She shall be no encumbrance  upon the garrison."  "He'll get even with you." exclaim  ed Mrs. Captain Wetherby, shaking her  head'ominously.  To this Mrs. Ferguson did not deign  a reply.  Miss Brayllng had scarcely bad time  to ,make tbe acquaintance of tbe ladles of tbe garrison before she was  privately warned by them to keep herself at as safe a distance as possible  from the commander.  "What'll he do to me?" she asked.  "What'H he do? Why, what a question! Don't you know that he,considers woman a drawback to tho command?  It Utero was an article In the  ���������teguJatlons" to cover tho case he a  convene a boold of survey to condemn,  every., one of us and make a bonflro  of us" '     \ (  ' What an awful man!"  Now, it happened that Captain Ferguson,, soon j, after Miss Brayllng's ar-  rrival'was?promoted to be major and  "assigned i to ,* the ^command of Fort <&.,  100 miles south'of Fort 3., He had, no  '.sooner left the'fort,1'his wife, children  and niece In an' ambulance and his 'effects' in an %army wagon, than Major  MacDonald/-was heard to say, "There  ,gb, five't dingers andr one soldier."  There'was^ not a lady at'Fort J.;who  did / not envy' Mrs. Ferguson the  change,^but'all had at least the satisfaction In {heK going that they would  feel "'the ,more ^free'Iom in abusing  Major MacDo*naId. \  , i'About a���������week after the departure of  the' Fergusons 'Major MacDonald received an'order if rom Washington directing him "to Inspect "the' army stations/ in the'' vicinity and report oa  their "condition. Turning over the'  command to'the'next officer In rank,  he depai ted'rwith a single orderly and  remained away-ia fortnight   ',     ������  After thls'the^major was continually  making* inspections,',remaining away  from his command on each tour from  a few days to-a few weeks. His departure was always1 hailed) with delight by the ladies'at Fort J., and his  return was regretted, for during hla  absence they ceased to feel that they  were't necessary evil aDd breathed  freely. *>    -.,<'-"���������   ' *       ^  \ ,"l wish," said Mrs. Lieutenant Wetherby, , "the government * would keep  pirn Inspecting till he came to'the age  pf retirement."    <, ' ',      i  "And I wish," said Mrs. Lieutenant  unther, "that some woman would  jet.him, load him down with baggage  and he'd' be ordered to move'at five  minutes' notice." ^     ,   '  'IOne day when the major was off on  h|s" fifth' tour of. Inspection' Captain  Harbison, who was in command^of the  post, confided to his wife'a'secret  MacDonald'was not going away from  his command on inspection duty at all.  He was simply absenting himself without leave.        ''\    ' \    .    r   '  VYou don't mean It? Where does he  go|?"~ ^\ <    '  "Nobody knows.; I suspect he may  (have secret orders to Investigate something." 'v,        ^ < "   I        ���������  "That's not usual In the army. At  lea'st in time of peace. There's no se-  ciet service except In -war."  i "That's all the explanation I have  to give," replied^the husband. "Be sure  not to say a word about what I've told  you." ' *     .   '  "Of course not" And as soon as the  captain left her, she went into Mrs.  Wetberby's quarters and told her the  story.' In half an hour it was known  to the wife of every oflicer of the gar-  nson*     >���������  ^he next tlme^ Major MacDonald  went out on a tour of inspection he  took a new uniform'with him that he'  had just received from ,a New York  tailor and a trunk full of other clothing/ ���������    * \:J    '���������    \  He ;bad been gone several days  when^an army wagon was driven Into  the* fort and a considerable "load "of  ibrancL- new .-furniture?, andi.a - dozen  trunks were dumped in vfront Nif the  ma'jor's quarters.* '.'���������    '  The episode occasioned a greater  commotion than an attack of a thousand-Indians. Every "woman, including the children, in the",fort stood on  the parade gaping at the pile, and tbere  was a clatter of tongues that would  have drowned the post band.  "I'll tell you what we'll do," said Mrs.  Gunter. "Let's bring, all our, empty  trunks, boxes, suit cases and bandboxes and put them on tbe pile."  "Wouldn't it be mutiny?" asked one  of the more timid ladies.  "Mutiny! There's no such thing as  mutiny for us. We're not In the army.  Come on!"  , Every woman rushed to her quarters  and back, she and ber older children  carrying articles to swell the major's  pile. When it was so high that they  must be tossed upward to get them in  position it stopped growing, but tbe  impedimenta was enough to drive a  quartermaster insane.  The next afternoon a smart little  wagon was driven into the fort and  who should appear on the back seat  but Major MacDonald and Miss Brayllng! When the officer saw the pile in  front of his quarters', his brow darkened for a moment; then be broke into  a laugh. Several ladles were on the  parade who hastened to welcome bim  back, and he presented his companion  to them as Mrs. MacDonald. ,  Both the groom and tbe bride entered  into the spirit of the joke that had been  iperpetrated, and. the news spreading  ,'that their commander bad returned a,  .married'man, the garrison poured from  their quarters and welcomed him with*  cheers. Then all took hold, separating*  the additions from the real impediment  ta, and carried the latter into the quars  ters of the bride and groom.  In the evening all was ready for a  wedding reception, for some of tha  boxes the groom bad sent contained  eatables and drinkables, and there was  a merry time at Fort J. Some one proposed the health of the newly married  couple with tbe words: ,  "May their belongings never diminish!"  Tho major replied, pledging himself  thereafter to consider tbe wives, children, cats, poodles, furniture, trunks,,  boxes, bandboxes, beds, bedding and,  wearing apparel, a part of the para-'  phernalia of war to be respected ac-'  cordingly. , - i  "You ladles," be added In conclusion/  "are Indebted to Mrs. Ferguson for a;  happy outcome from* your troubles.

He will return in time  to start the pack trains in as soon  as the snow is off the ground and  the   grass   has   started   to   grow.  Frank   is   interested   in   several  blocks of coal lands and he will  have charge this next season of  nearly all the packing aud getting  the camps ready.    He says that  there will be an immense amount  of development   work, done   this  year,   not  only by  the Canadian  Finance and the  other companies  that were operating last year, but  hy many  others,. including   Williams & Murdoff, Laidlaw, etc. He  will also do a lot of work on his  own claims and get them in shape  for engineers to inspect.    He has  had many offers for his own  stuff  but he says that he will find out  what there is on the property first  and thus get the actual value for  ground.���������Hazelton Herald.  The program of tho Hedley Gold  Mining Company is one of never  ending surprises,  but as the surprises aro agreeable ones there is  no ono will find any fault.    "When  the now company took over tho  property   in   August,   1909,   thoy  soon began to demonstrate tho fact  that the mine was no longer in the  hands   of   a   closo    corporation,  shielding with mystery its operations   and   concealing   its   gains.  When a dividend was paid it was  stated openly in the manner of an  open  corporation . and the   public  had an opportunity to see that the  standard dividend pace which the  company had set was 12 per cent,  per   annum   on   the   outstanding  stock of the company, paid in quarterly instalments, and any increase  on this which the earnings  of the  mine would permit was distributed  as extra to the standard three per  cent, quarterly and was- so specified.     It  immediately   became  a  case of two per cent,  extra,  quarterly,   making the quaeterly dividends total five per cent, or 20 per  cent, per annum.  At this rate they travelled along  until the last quarter of 1911 when  10 per ceut. was distributed for  the quarter,  bringing the  year's  Frank Martin arrived home last  week after spending several months  in Vancouver looking after his  coal and mineral interests. Frank  stated that while money in Vancouver is tight there is looks of  activity in Victoria ahd that there  is lots of loose money there also.  He was very successful in several  ot his deals and had no kick coming whatever. He will be around  the district now for some time.  Mr. Martin stated to tbe Herald  that next summer would most likely be the greatest in the history of  this district. In the south there  is far more interest being taken in  Hazelton than ever before and  many more people wero coming in  now that the railway is open.  Word came down from the Surprise mine on Monday to the effect  that the ore had been hit in this  first vein which this long tunnel  cut. While this vein was small  on the surface a gang of men were  put to work drifting on it from the  tunnel. They bave gone ninety  feet and have encountered some  dividend disbursement up to 25  per cent, and then the public began to wonder whether they could  maintain that.  Knowing that a few weeks ago  they paid $150,000 for the Windfall group of claims nothing would  have been thought of it if they had  made the last quarter's dividend  in 1912 no more than the usual  quarterly 5 per cent., but the announcement to shareholders of the  dividend of 12 per cent, for the  quarter additional to the usual  threo per cent, was wholly unexpected and will give tho public  some inkling of what is to come  when more ground is opened up  and a new power plant is installed  to take care of mining and reduction on a more extensive scale.  It has always been understood  that tho tonnage month by month  for tho year was well up and that  the recovery was good. To pay  out 8300,000 in dividends in a  single year is certainly a wonder-  performance and when it is known  that the Bum of $S3G,520 has already been disbuibed by the new  company in dividends and that the  total amount which they paid for  the mine a little over three years  ago was less than that, the present  owners are certainly in a very enviable position. But the best part  of it is that the real performances  of the mine in the way of production are apparently only beginning.  A Pare Cream of Tartar Powder  Indispensable to best results���������saves  worry���������saves work���������saves money-  saves health���������saves complaints at table  In the case of Dr. Schwabland  versus R. J. Armstrong which  occupied the court for four (lays in  Greenwood and two clays iu taking  evidence of Dr. Lambert and Dr.  Neil in Spokane.  Judgement has been given for  the plaintiff Dr. Schwabland for  tho amount of his claim with costs  and the counter claim for $1000  for damages for malpractice, dismissed with costs against defendant Armstrong.  The defendant claimed negligent  and ��������� improper   treatment on  tho  ground:  1. That the leg was not properly set and kept in a proper position  afterwards.  2. That on or about tho 2flth  June 1911, tlio plaintiff left tho defendant in charge of a druggist and  remained away for nine daya.  3. That by reason of careless  treatment infection was from time  to time introduced into the wound.  4. That the plaintiff was negligent in not using.tlie serum or  vaccine treatment.  In his judgement, His Honor  Judge Brown held dealing just  with 2 3 and 4, (quoting only portions) it was not shown that the  defendant suffered any bad effects  by reason of the plaintiff's absence  for nine days therefore this ground  fails as to No. 3 I think it highly  improbable that any now imfection  was introduced by the plaintiff  evidence of Dr. Lambert. This  ground also fails.  As to No. 4 the serum and vaccine treatment evidence of Dr. Mac-  Lean is to the effect that this treatment is nearly always used for a  general as opposed to a local infection. I accept Dr. MacLean's  view as a reasonable one and exonerate the plaintiff from any negligence on this score.  As to No. lfc in my opinion the  weight of evidence shows that the  broken fragments of the large bone  (the tibia) were set in opposition.  Dr. McNaughton for the defence  swore tbat the injured leg was 1A-  inches shorter than the other one.  There is no doubt he was mistaken  as the evidence of Doctors Mac-  Lean, Lambert and Verral all  show that the injured leg is shortened only g to A inch. That is not  a bad result from a compound  fracture as far as the setting of the  bones and tho length of the injured  leg the defendant fails.  As explained by Dr. MacLean  while there is some eversion it is  more apparent than real and is duo  to tho way the defendant walks.  Dr. MacLean also stated that in  his opinion tbere would be very  little if any permanent lameness.  I do not disparage at all the  evidence of Dr. McNaughton but I  prefer on this point to rely on the  evidence of Dr. Lambert confirmed  as it is to some extent by the  authority of Scudder and the evidence of Dr. McLean.  A. S. Black appeared for plaintiff Dr. Schwabland and A. D.  Maclntyre of Kamloops and Ernest  Miller appeared for defendant K,. J.Armstrong.  The Nelson Shield Cont'd  King Edward's cipher, E. R.

ONE WORE FOOL  Dks Moinks, Lv.���������"There won't  bo any Panama-Pacific Exposition.  Those poor misguided persons on  the Pacific slcpo aro wasting their  money. They had better be directing their energies in preparation for Judgment Day. For the  good Lord is going to bring this  world to an end in 1913." I  This was the declaration here  lately of Rev. W. D. Parkhurst,  pastor of tho First Adventist  Church, who backed his assertion  with many quotations from' the  Bible. He also pointed to ��������� the  Balkan war as partial proof of his  prediction.  "All the seas and rivera.'and  fountains will turn to blood." said  Parkhurst. "Hailstones weighing  57 lbs. will fall, and the sun will  be so hot that man will literally  be burned alive. Next summer  will be so hot that persons will be  cooked on their bones. When you  turn the kitchen faucet next July  warm blood will flow, and the soft  skin of women will break out iu  loathsome sores, and seven plagues  will devaste the earth."  Dr. Parkhurst advises the people  to read the 24th chapter of Matthew, verse 27, if they do not believe it.

To Feeble Old People. \  As one grows old the waste of the  system becomes more rapid than repair, the organs act'more slowly and  less effectually than in youth, the circulation is poor, the blood thin and  digestion weak.  Vinol, our delicious cod liver and  iron tonic without oil, is the ideal  strengthener and body-builder for old  folks, for It contains the very elements needed to rebuild wasting tissues and replace weakness with,  strength. Vinol also fortifies the system against colds and thus prevents  pneumonia.  A grandnelce of Alexander Hamilton, over eighty years of age, once  remarked: "Vinol Is a godsend to old'  people. Thanks to Vinol, I have a  hearty appetite, sleep soundly, feel  active and well. - It is the finest tonic  and strength-creator I have ever  used."  If Vinol falls to build up the  feeble old people, and create  strength, we will return your money.  J. L. White, Druggist, Greenwood, B.
