Address Dr. Hartman, Columbus, O. : At a sick bed and at a funeral, women are always superior to men. Atheistic arguments are but the whistling of cowards in the dark. Consumption Do not think for a single moment that consumption will ever strike you a sudden blow. It does not come that way. It creeps its way along. First, you think it is a little cold; nothing but a little hacking cough; then a little loss in weight; then a harder cough; then the fever and the night sweats. The suddenness comes when you have a hemorrhage. Better stop the disease while it is yet creeping. You can do it with Pectoral You first notice that you cough less.

A Back Ynrcl They met on top of the backyard fence—an unconventional place— ' And each one felt rather shy, upon see- Ing the other's face. "I didn't know that the fence was yours; Do you live in the big house there?" But the little girl hugged her pussy cat, And gave him a vacant stare. "I've got a beautiful dog." said he, with a look full of scorning at The bundle of gray that the small girl held— Her beautiful pussy cat. And then the little girl found her tongue— "Pussy can scratch and bite, And if your dog is worth anything, Why couldn't they have a fight?" The llttlo boy grinned from ear to ear; It wasn't the thing to do, But maybe you would have grinned yourself, If the little boy'd been you. "He'll kill your cat, but if yoA don't cara It'll bo all right with me." And he went to fetch the dog, with a heart That was brimming o'er with glee. Then at It they new, with teeth and claws, And the little boy cried, "It's fun," Till he saw the cat was beating his dog, Who'll nothing to do but run. "Now, isn't he bravo?" the little girl laughed, As she klcke-l her heels on the fence. And tho little boy felt two Inches tall And dreadfully short of sense. Then down ho climbed, In his own backyard, And the world felt very fiat, And he wished instead of a frightened dog, He had owned a pussy cat, But such is the way of the world, alas, And you'd best be sure you're right, When you make a statement, but, best of all, Keep out of a backyard flght! —Mary Brent Whlteslde.

FREE TO MILLIONS A Vulnable tittle Book Sent IFreo tot the Medical books are not always Interesting reading, especially to people enjoying good health, but as a matter of fact scarcely one person in ten Is perfectly healthy, and even with such, sooner or later sickness must come. It Is also a well established truth that nine-tenths of all diseases originate with a breaking down of the diction, a weak stomach weakens and impoverishes the system, making it easy for disease to gain a foothold. Nobody need fear consumption, kidney disease^ liver trouble or a weak heart and nervous system as long as the digestion is good and the stomach able to assimilate plenty of wholesome food. Stomach weakness shows Itself In a score of ways, and this little book describes the symptoms and causes and points the way to a cure so simple that anyone can understand and apply. Thousands have some form of stomach trouble and do not know it. They ascribe the headaches, the languor, nervousness, insomnia, palpitation, constipation and similar symptoms to some other cause than the true one. Get your digestion on the right track and the heart trouble, lung trouble, liver disease or nervous debility will rapidly disappear. This little book treats entirely on the cause and removal of indigestion and its accompanying annoyances. It describes the symptoms of Acid Dyspepsia, Nervous Dyspepsia, Slow Dyspepsia, Amylaceous Dyspepsia, Catarrh of Stomach and all affections of the digestive organs in plain language easily understood,, and the cause removed. It gives valuable suggestions as to diet, and contains a table giving length of time required to digest various articles of food, something every person with weak digestion should know. No price is asked, but simply send your name and address plainly written on postal card to the F. A. Stuart Co , 151 Main St., Marshall, Mich., requesting a little book on Stomach Diseases and it will be sent promptly by return mail. "Funny you never find a college man behind the bar."

Tr.era is more Catarrh in this section of the country than all other diseases put together, and until the last few years was supposed to be incurable. For u, great many years doctors pronounced it a local disease and prescribed local remedies and by constantly failing to cure with local treatment, pronounced it incurable. Science has proven Catarrh to be a constitutional disease and therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional cure on the market. It is taken internally in doses from 10 drops to a tcaspoonf ul.
