Another question, and a vi- Jal one, is what kind of minerals to feed the brood sow and her litter to supply our armies with food. The proof of the pudding is to ask your neighbor about results from my minerals. Also ask your railroad agent, and you will find that four oul of five bags of mineral shipped to points in Kossuth and Humboldt counties are the Walnut Grove Product.

He says his stomach, intestines, bowels and whole system were so thor- oughtly cleansed that his constant headaches came to an end, several pimply skin eruptions on his face dried up overnight, and even the rheumatic pains in his knee disappeared. At present he is an altogether different man, feeling fine in every way. SYS-TONE contains 12 Great Herbs; they cleanse bowels, clear gas from stomach, act on sluggish liver and kidneys.

He said there are three classes of people in England. The upper class is the wealthy class. The middle class have a lot of reserve and once that reserve is broken they are the swellest people in the world and they'll do anything for you. Meat Shops Unsanitary. The lower class is the poorer cbss and anyone born in that class is a very unfortunate person because they rarely have the opportunity to make something of themselves. He said people do not have a clean grocery store or butcher shop over there. In a 'butcher shop you do not look into a clean shiny-white meat case, but see the carcass hanging from the ceiling. There is no refrigeration in England at all and he doubted if there ever was a cake of ice in England before the war started. He also said it is difficult to realize the conditions in the shops. In the case of the butcher shops he said, one often finds plenty of flies around the meat, and the meat often gets old and we here in the in San Diego. He entered the service about two years ago and took his training at various camps in the United States. He has a brother Floyd who with hft family lives in San Diego.
