IT you are short and stunted or have
deformity of any kind or character
you should read every word of this
statement. A short man or woman is
handicapped all through life, both
fi om a social and business standpoint.
I ha-\e discovered a method which will
positively increase the height of every
individual not over fifty years of age.
My method haB met with startling suc
ess. Wh en I first placed it before the
public I had no idea it would meet
1th such universal favor, but a glance
at my establishment will pro\e conclu
sively to all that the Cartilage method
discovered by me is a success unpar
alleled in the history of business. My
offices are crowded with those anxious
to test my wonderful apparatus. I
have doubled my business in the last
two months. Orders are coming in
daily by the hundreds from all parts
of the world. What does all this ex
itement signify I means simply
this, that those who purchased my ap
paratus are satisfied, and they are my
best advertisements. I have sold
them to the leading people of the land,
and all unite in saying it is the most

me to-day and tell me your exact
height, age or deformity, and I will
tell you what you may expect if you

Dear Sirs I wish to state that I have now

Sleepy Eye, Minn., Feb. 6.Sleepy
Eye high school's inexperienced debat
ing team suffered defeat at the hands
of the team from the Fairmont high
school to-night. The locals lost on
their delivery. They had the best of
the argument all the way thru, but
their weak delivery gave their oppo
nents an opportunity to display^ their
superior skill in handling the question.
Superintendent Colsen of Lamber

The opening address for Sleepy Eye
was made by Miss Carol Somerville.
Her argument was based on the state
ment that private concerns naturally
existed for financial gain, and not for
the highest efficiency in service. She
produced figures to show that munici
palities that conducted their own
lighting plants, telephone systems and
waterworks obtained better service at
lower cost than those cities that de

ative in his statements that public
ownership was desirable on economic
grounds, and that municipalities could
get lower rates of interest and did not
have to pay for political influence.
Frank Tonne, for Fairmont, used his
time to tell of the dangers brought on
by public ownership's discouraging in
dividual effort and bringing socialism
and anarchy. Tonne did the best
work for the visiting team in the way
he placed his arguments before the
Herman Remmele confined himself
to giving figures comparing the cost of
telephones, water and light under pri
vate and public ownership.
John Norns for Fairmont, said that
public ownership destroyed individ
uality, that a municipal government
was established to protect the rights of
the citizens, and not to enter into
semi-financial enterprises. He thought
that since no city had ever owned and
operated all five of the public utilities
under consideration at one time, the
matter of municipal ownership was
simply a theory.
Sleepy Eye's First Team.
This is Sleepy Eye's first debating
team, but it made a good showing
against the experienced Fairmont trio.
After the debate a public reception
was given by the Sleepy Eye high
school at the school house, in honqr of
the visitors from Fairmont.
SOUTH VS. EAST HIGH
Both Sides Debate Brilliantly,
South High Wins.
In spite of the careful prepaiation
and the skilful delivery of the East
High debating team, which defeated
Central High team debating the
same subject, the South High team
secured the ear of the judges last
night when the question of the own
ership of public utilities was dis
cussed in the East High school audi
torium and wo the supremacy
among the local high school teams.
The forceful delivery of the East
High team was matched against the
brilliant and powerful presentation by
the trio trained by Professor A. N
Ozias of the South Side High school.
The arguments made in the defense
of municipal ownership of gas, elec
tric light, waterworks and street car
plants, given by Earle Wyman,
Cecil McKercher and Harold Deering
of the East Side High school, were
much the same as those presented in
the debate with the Central High
school team three weeks ago. Those
presented in favor of private owner
ship of public service corporations,
made by Brewer Goodsell, Gerald
Young and Arthur Anderson of the
South Side trio, were largely in repeti
tion of those which triumphed over
the North Side team three weeks
ago. Each team displayed unusual
ability in reply and unusual quick
ness in finding the weakness in the
opponent's position and argument.
Party feeling ran high, and the fol
lowers of the two high schools were
on hand to applaud the good points
scored by their representatives. As
in the previous debate, Earle Wyman
was the strength of the E?y High
team, doing much with his good stage
presence and his quiet, convincing
argument. For the South High team
Brewer Goodsell carried off the
The judges of the debate, which
sends the South High team into the
finals of the State High School De
bating league, were Samuel C. Gale,
C. E Brown and Alexander McCune.*
Two of them decided in favor of the
hegative, presented by the South High
team, and one cast his vote for the
East High debaters.

Three Years of Excruciating Neuralgia
Terminated by Six Boxes of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
The pity of the modern world has
always been stirred by tales of the
sufferings of the wretched victims in
the torture chambers once connected
with courts of justice. The very sight
of a gruesome collection of pinchers,
tongs, thumbscrews and racks, used
ages ago, awes curious spectators and
makes them tremble with living hor
ror. While such cruelties survive now
only among savage races, men still
suffer from agonies of disease so in
tense that they can find no terms fit to
describe them save words like "tor
ture" and "rack," which call up viv
idly the barbarities of the outgrown
past. Th unhappy victims some
times, as in the case which follows,
faint with the exhaustion of intense
pain," and even long for death to
hasten and end sufferings which they
have appealed so long in vain to men
to relieve. All help that comes from

have been welcome as a relief.

"I consulted several physicians, but,
while they all diagnosed my case as
neuralgia and prescribed for that, they
gave me only temporary relief. Then
I took a number of advertised neu
ralgia cures with no better result.
About four months ago a friend told
me about Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People, and I decided to try a
box, although then I had but little
faith in them, because I had taken so
many remedies without benefit. After
I had used one box I noticed that
the pains were less frequent and in
tense than before. So I took a sec
ond box with additional improvement.
After I had taken six boxes my neu

months I have been free from pain.

"I write to tell you how much Peruna benefited me.
For a number of years I had pain in my head around
my eyes, and I thought it was because my eyes needed
treatment, so I went to an oculist and had glasses
fitted to my eyes and wore them for some time, but fel*
no relief whatever. I fact, I felt worse than before
and came to the conclusion that the trouble was not
with my eyes, but with my head and that it must be
catarrh. As so many of my friends had used Peruna
with benefit for this trouble, I thought I would try it.
I was not sorry that I did so, for in a short time I be
gan to improve, and in four weeks my eyes were in
