as follows: ill Kvery prisoner who

tically every rule became ambitious
for these rewards, and. by good con?
duct, won one or more of them. They
were found proudly displaying their I
good conduct buttons and manifestly
self-respecting by this token.
At dinner time it was found that
beere than half of those who have been
in the prison as long as one year were
wearing blue caps. During the last
f-s rears the n ass bar of panstahatenta
baa dropped from an average of seven

An Appeal to Those Sufferin
If you arc a sufferer from rheumatism I know that this will be
of much interest. I know if you have a relative, or friend, suffer?
ing the terrible tortures of this many headed monster? rheuma?
tism that it will be equally interesting
You would give almost any price tu be relieved.
There are many so-called "cures" advertised?read what most
of them require: Take three or four times a day. internally, some
remedy made up with strong drugs, which I would call "dope."
Rc.td what these "cures" claim is the cause of rheumatism?
uric acid, kidney trouble, liver complaint, indigestion, etc.
No one knows what uric acid is?ask your family physician.
While you are talking to him, ask about these "cures" at the
same time. You have a lot of faith in his opinion.
Rheumatism is a serious disease?with more serious conditions
f? llo ving if not checked in time. It often doubles one up, brings
on 11 -orts of misery, makes life almost unbearable.
Nine ca rs out of ten require no internal treatment at all.
Du not till your system with these "cures" until you have tried
You may be one of the nine that can be helped by it?Noah's
Liniment is an external treatment.
You would, if .i sufferer, give $5.00 as quickly as Si.00 for
something that would help you. All I ask you to do is to try one
large size bottle of Noah's Liniment. If it does not benefit you
vour dealer is authorized to give back your money.
Where there is not any swelling or fever Noah's Liniment will
no doubt help you. Requires very little rubbing, penetrates and
does not evaporate like most external remedies.
If you have read thus far you will be more interested to con?
tinue. I have personally investigated many of the testimonials
for Noah's Liniment.
Not long ago I went to Charleston, S. C to look into a re?
markable case. This man, Mr. John P. Daly, was unable to raise
his right arm for more than ten years until he had used Noah's
Liniment. Mr. Daly is 68 years old, and is well and favorably
known in Charleston. He has resided there most of his life and was
a veteran in the civil war. Mr.
Daly told me his >ister request?
ed a sample by mail; then Ik
states he pun based a 25c size
bottle, and then a Si 00 bottle
and a little more than the latter
made a perfect cure. Koah Remedy Company
Mr. Daly's Statement
"I suffered with rheumatism in my right inn
and shoulder, complicated with a partial paralysis
of the nerves. I tried numerous preparations with
only partial relief, suffering intense pain all the
time, to -~ oi appetite, insomnia and was reduced
to a mere skeleton. Fortunately I learned of
Noah'.- Liniment and began its use. Although I
could not raise my arm. after using a little more
than a large size hot Mr 1 feel that I am completely
cured and my old self again. Cannot too strongly

From a Prom nent Business Man of Alexandria, Va
"I have been ti-ing Noah's Liniment in a very

be a valuable remedy. 1 recommend it to all suf?
ferers in that line."?J. Matthews.
Cured of Sciatic Rheumatism
"Fverv winter for the past few years I have
