i.2 NASHVILLE TENNESSEAN and The Nashville Amer ican, SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 21, 1914. "T is generally agreed by doctors primary trouble with the health of and young girls Is that thev are of the condition of the bowels. There Is nothing so Important' In this regard as habit and system. The growing girl should be especially looked after. Girls and women of all ages will find that by regulating themselves they can avoid the free use of cosmetics and such things, and that obesity Is reduced by bowel elimination and weight increased by proper assimilation. The right laxative for women, as It is for children and old folks, who should not use harsh pills, salts and other stiong cathartics, Is that gentle and mild laxative-tonic, Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. It acts on the principle that by gently regulating the bowels the digestive mus-oles will soon again be trained to do their 1 work naturally and unaided. Thousands of families use It regularly, and it has been the standard . In good American homes for two generations. Mrs. Ella Robison, of 806 Trombley St., Ft. Worth, Tex., says she will never be without Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. She uses it herself ' and gives it to her little girl, and believes she will not need the doctor so often now. Mrs. T. Blue, of 442 College St., Cape Girardeau, Alo., makes Syrup Pepsin her family remedy and says she would not be without it for twice its price. You will find Syrup Pepsin very effective as a remedy for constipation, dyspepsia, biliousness, belching, gas on the' stomach, foul breath, headaches, bloating, etc. Druggists sell it at fifty cents and one dollar a bottle.

The activity In Belgium and France has lessened, largely because of bad weather and the Inundation of a considerable area along the Yser In West Flanders. Poland Is the scene of two contests In tho east and the third Is being fought In East Prussia. The combat In the country between the Vistula and Warta rivers Is attracting the most attention. It is believed the Germans have massed there at least half a millon men, in an endeavor to break the Russian line. The location of the battlefield and other conditions favor a decisive conflict. In this battle the Russians claim to have ' achieved partial success. The second battle in Poland Is being fought on the Cracow-Czensto-chowa line, and both sides claim they are satisfied with the progress made. The Russian advance in East Prussia is moving slowly through the region about the Mazurian lakes. In this district the Germans have massed strong forces. The Russians are moving westward in Galicla and claim numerous successes, among which are the capture of Wlsnlcz, Gorlice, Dukla and Ujok. .
