18 WANT. TO LOOK YOUNG? The secret o£ keeping young is't feel young---to do _this you mus watch, your liver ~ and bowels-there's ^no need of having a'sallow complexion--dark rings under your eyes--pimples--a bilious look in your face--dull eyes with no sparkle. Your doctor will tell you 90 per cent'of all sickness comes from inactive bowels and liver. Dr. Edwards, a well-known physician in Ohio, perfected a vegetable compound as a substitute for chlo- mel to act on the liver'and bowels which he gave'to his patients for years. . ' · Dr. Edwards Olive Tablets'are gentle in their action yet always ef- ' fective. They help bring about that natural buoyancy which all ahoulc enjoy by toning lip .the liver and clearing the system of impurities. Dr. Edwards . Olive Tablets are known by their olive color. 15c, SOc 60c. One Copper Cent . J. D. Martin of Richmond, Va. is the proud'possessor of a check foi ?200.00 paid him for an old coppts cent. The Numismatic Company ' Dept. 823, F.prt Worth, .Texas, who purchased this penny from Mr Martin, says .there .are numerous old coins, bills and .stamps in cir- culatipn'fpr which they will gladly pay big cash premiums. So tnat you ; will;know the value of old coins and stamps and what to watch for in your change, the Numismatic Company will send for only 4c to any /readers of this pauer who writes them, a large illustrated coin folder describing some of these wanted articles and the big profits to be , made. Better write_ them today for this large folder so you can post yourself and' know just what to look for. Remember that Mr. Martin's · knowing' the value of his penny meant a difference of S199.99 . to him. Without knowing its value that penny might still be in circulation, passing thru the hands of thousands until someone like Mr. Martin, who knows old'coins, recognized its value. It pays to be posted. Send 4c. now' for the illus- ·trated coin folder. You have ^nothing to lose, everything to gain. "Mythirteen-year-olddaugK- ter Maxine was troubled with backache and pain when she came into womanhood. I knew Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable' Compound would help her because I used, to. take it myself at her age. Now she does not have to stay home from school and her color'is good, she eats well and does not complain of being tired i We are recommending the Vegetable Compound to other school girls who need it. You may publish this letter."--Mrs. Floyd Bith chsr, R..#2, Gridley, Kansas. OFFICERS ATTEND ROAD MEETING D i s c u s s Secondary Highways and .Other Problems of County. County supervisors, auditors and engineers from "the 12 North Iowa counties that make up the highway district under the supervision of Raymond Zack, highway commission /engineer, gathered at tha assembly room of the courthouse Wednesday for their semi-annual conference on their mutual prob- .lems of building and maintaining roads, managing county homes; letting contracts, paying off indebtedness, making courthouse repairs and hiring labor. ' While the center of interest was focused on the secondary roads, which only recently passed from the townships to the supervision of the county engineer, the officers allowed their fancies free play anil discussed anything that came to mind. In fact the opening discussion was on Haskell-Klaus measure governing the state hospital for indigent. Charles Millington, St. Ansgar, Mitchell county Supervisor, presided as president of. the group. Second Session of Course to Be Held Here Thursday. The second session of the specialization courses in first aid arid archery will be held Thursday evening. The first aid course with Tom Connor- as instructor. will be held in the Lincoln school gym and the archery course, under the direction of Chet Stevens and Ralph Stanbery, will be in. the' manual 'arts building.. Thirty-seven men attended the first session-of the first aid course last week and prospects are bright that more than 40 will be in attendance at the second meeting. The basis of study for the second session in the first aid course will be "Kinds and Uses of Bandages" and "Artificial Respiration." Patrols will practice the various uses of the different bandages. The / members of the first aid course are divided into two patrols; The owls are being led by Stanley Haynes as patrol leader with Dr. A. L,. Miller, Dr. H, O. Young, Dr! O. H. Bimton as team captains. The rattlesnake patrol has W. O. Woodman as patrol leader with Ernie Lange, Ted Veeder, C. W. McFar land and Francis DeSart as team captains. Paul Manor, deputy com missioner of district one is moral officer. The class in archery will continu working on. their bows. There wer 12 men in this class last Thursdaj night and prospects are that th' number will be practically doublei at the second session. This group will close its work in five night after which time another specializa :ion course, selected by the mem aers of the group, will be con ducted. * MASON CITY GLOBE-fiAZETTB · PRICESTURN ' - FEBRUARY 25 · 1931 \| _ - - _ · . - ·· ' ^^^^^__ · ' ··____ ( . * if AND START UP CATTLETRADE STARTS SLOWLY Cut in Receipts Improves Market Little; Lambs Lower. CHICAGO, Feb. 25. UP)--After dropping sharply and threatening tho season's low mark, hog prices were turned upward without much effort early today. Receipts of-20,000 included 6,000 forwarded direct to packing plants, and 3,000 stala hoga were Jn the pens. Initial activity was limited but'-prices were marked up lOc on actual sales, while many loads were held much higher. Butchers of substantial weights at $6.75, and lights and mediums at 57.25 were $4.00 lower than a year ago..The average cost of $6.79 on Tuesday was within 13c of the season's bottom reached a week ago today. . Curtailment of bovine offerings brot little improvement to the local cattle trade during the formative period of the market. Narrow demand for the. mbetween grades of steers which made up-most of the run .prevented 'an active start. Calves were freely supplied, notwithstanding the continued decline in values for several weeks. Packers received 1,850 lambs on thru billing out of the run o£ 11,000. The ' abundance of good killing lambs caused buyers to hold back and lower prices were offered.

The bears stress the business situation while the bulls emphasize the "cold out" condition. If the market was-too low J* i »i? h * current advance started the bulls feel that the rise has not been excessive The market has gained ground for five consecutive days. During this period the Dow- Jones Industrial average has recovered about 15$i points or little more than half the gain from the low.point reached the middle ol last December. . Net assets of the Sheoandoah corporation amounted to 463.257,602 as ol Feb 20 It Is estimated.

In addition Buffalo reported 75.000 bushels so!d but the destination was not given out. Omaha claimed country offerings were small and expressed the belief that the movement I n ' he state was about over. Kansas City cash asls gained half cent as compared with tfay. Trade In futures was lirgely of a oca! character, with shorts disposed to coyer on the minor dips.
