0 .%T-BARtD TONI
The ingredients of which S. S. S. is composed, and the method of com
bining and preparing them so that they gently and pleasantly build up and
strengthen every part of the body, make it the ideal tonic for a disordered
condition of.the system. Every one feels the need of a tonic sometimes.
The system seems to get "out of gear, " the appetite becomes 5ckle, the
energies are depressed, sleep is not restful or refreshing, and the entire body
has a nervous, worn-out feeling. When the system is in this depleted, run
down-condition it must be aided by a tonic, and S. S. S. is recognized every
where as the standard. Being made entirely of roots, herbs and barks
selected for their gentle action as w'ell as their invigorating effect on the
system, it will not disagreeably affect any of the delicate members or tissues
as do most of the so-called tonics on the market which contain potash or
some other harmful mineral ingredient. These derange the stomach and
digestion, unfavoratbly affect the bowels or otheisvise damage the health.
S. S. S. tones up the stomach and digestion. improves the appetite. produces
refreshing sleep, rids-the body of that tired, run-down feeling. and supplies
tone and vigor to the entire system. It re-establishes the healthy circulation
of the blood, acts more promptly and gives-better and more lasting results
than any other tonic, and because of its vegetable purity is an absolutely
safe medicine for young or old. S. S. S. acts admirably in cases oj dyspep
sia, indigestion and other stomach troubles, and after using it that uncom
fortable feeling of fullness, dizziness or drowsiness, after eating, are no
longer felt. Not only is S. S. S. the'greatest of all tonics but possesses puri
fying and alterative properties, and if there is a taint in the blood it will
promptly remove every trace and restore perfect health. In selecting your
tonic for this year do not experiment but get S. S. S.. the recognized stand

Work and Pay of the Girl Behind the
Promotion is very slow in a depart
ment store. A girl may enter a store at
$6 a week and, after five or six or sev
en years, receive an advance of $1 a
week if she puts up a pretty stiff fight
and is a valuable saleswoman.
Her work Is not the dull grind it
might be supposed. The hours are
long, it Is true, but the continual pro
cession of humanity which files before
her lends interest and a certain kind
of excitement to every hour. Human
nature is wonderfully facile in Its dis
closures, and the shopgirl who has
two ideas in her head and keeps her
wits about her very soon learns the
difference between the real lady and
the spurious article. She learns to
know at a glance whether her custo
mer is likely to order a box of hair
pins or a spool of thread sent home,
miles away, by the delivery wagon, or
it may be high priced goods ordered
to be sent C. 0. D. to a locality which
does not contain a residence street
These a girl quietly replaced on a shelf
one day and to my Inquitirg look re
plied: "She never expected to pay for
those things, but she felt ashamed to
have taken up so much of my time
without buying anything. - Oh, yes, it
often happens, but we soon know how
to size 'em up!"--Mary Rankin Cran
ston in The ,World Today.
An Overworked Stomach.
Try a litle Kodol for Dyspepsia after
cour meals. See the effect it will pro
ince on your general feeling by digest
.ng your food and helping your stom
tch to get itself into shape. Many
;tomachs are overworked to the point
Rhere they refuse to go further. Kodol
ligests your food and gives your stom
Lch the rest it needs, while its recon
;tructive properties get the stomach
yack into working order. Kodol re
leves flatulence, sour stomach, palpi
ation of the heart, belching, etc. Sold.

Alcohol In Cold. Weather.
A scientist thus explains why it is so
langerous to- se alcohol in the polar
:egions: A moderate use of alcohol
:auses a deposit of fat. Alcohol Is not
urned into fuel in the muscle and
ierve cells, but serves as a pure fuel
n the organism and replaces the com
>ustion of fat. Alcohol is therefore
langerous in the extreme cold because
t assists the throwing off of heat in a
vreat degree. The effect is as if a
;tove in a room should be heated red
lot and then all the doors and windows
brown open. Heat produced by mus
mlar work in the body is best obtained
Prom carbohydrates in the food; but,
)esldes this, the Indispensable produc
ion of heat Is best sobtained by fats.
7his explains the instinctive choice of
he food of men. In the tropics they
rat little fat and much fruit, while th4
>olar dweller requires immense quanti
ies of fat to keep up the bodily com

Lapis lazuli, a peculiar stone, vary
ing in shades from sky blue to d4rk
blue, comes from various parts of Asia
and has usually specks of yellow or
white Iron pyrites, which some believe
to be gold or silver. The fine blue color
for painting called ultramarine is made
from lapis lazuli by grinding it into
powder and purifying it from pyrites
and other substances which are mixed
with it in its natural state. As paint
ers know 'well, this color is now diffi
cult to obtain genuine since a mode of
making It artificially has been discov
ered by chemists. The difference in
price Is great. 'The artificial cannot be
distinguished from the real by even
the most careful chemical tests, the
only means-of detecting the former be
ing by the microscope, which, shows
the absence of the sparkling particles
of the broken stone from which the
real ultramarine is never free.
Bowel Complaint in Children.
During the summer months children
are subject to disorders of the bowels
which should receive careful attention
as soon as the unnatural looseness of
the bowels appears. The best medicine
in use for bowel complaint is Chamber
lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea I
Remedy as it promptly controls any un
natural looseness of the bowels. For
sale by The Arant Co. Drug Store.
Maria Mitchell and the Beer Man.
Maria Mitchell, the famous astrono
mer, was once directed~ by her phy
sician to use lager beer as a tonic. On
the way to visit her sister, Mrs. Joshua
Kendall of Cambridge, Mass., she stop
ped at a saloon and purchase& a bottle
of beer and afterward asked her broth
er-in-law to open It for her. The Mitch
ell family, according to the Boston Her
ald, spoke among themselves after the
Quaker custom. "Where did thee get
it, Maria?" questioned her sister. "At
the saloon on the corner," replied Miss
Mitchell serenely. "Why, Maria!
Doesn't thee know respectable women
don't go into such places?" "Oh," said
Miss Mitchell, in the manner of- one 1
who has done all that could be requir
ed, "I told the man he ought to be a
thoroughly ashamed of his traffic."

The Papal Tiara. t
According to Brewer, the tiara of'the a
pope is a composite emblem. The pri- t
mary meaning Is purity and chastity,
the foundation and lining of the crown
being of the finest linen. The gold
band denotes supremacy. The first
cap of dignity was adopted by Pope t
Damascus IL in 1048. The cap was d
surmounted with a high coronet in t(
1295 by Boniface VIII. The second f
coronet was added in 1335 by Benedict a
XII. to indicate the prerogatives of c
spiritual and temporal power combined a
in the papacy. The third coronet Is in- h
licative of the Trinity, but it is not I
known who first adopted it. Some say e
Urban Y., others John XXII., John I

- Two Dramatic and Contrasting Epi.
. odes In Her Life.
t Thistelton-Dyerj, in his "Royalty In
All Ages," describes two dramatic
and tragically contrasted episodes in
the life of Marie Antoinette, the lovely
and ill fated queen of France. Once,
In the days of her greatest popularity,
when she went to the opera of "Iphi
genia," when Achilles came to the line
f"Let us sing and celebrate the queen,"
he turned toward the radiant young
sovereign and sang two additional im
promptu lines of charming compliment
This graceful and unexpected homage
so delighted the audience that "all was
shouting and clapping of hands, and
what never happened at the opera be
fore-the chorus was encored, ant
there were cries of 'Long live iae
queen!' at which expression of feeling
her majesty was so affected that she
On the next occasion, when Marie
Antoinette's sun'of popular favor had
set and she was nearing the tragic
close of her life, one of the actresses in
"Unforeseen Events" towed to her as
she sang the words "Ab, how I love
my mistress!" In a moment all was in
uproar, and the theater was full of
hoarse, angry cries of "No mistress!
No master! Liberty!" and "No master!
No queen!" and it was some minutes
before the tumult quieted down and it
was possible to proceed with the play.

How Snake.' xMove and Climb. 01
The vertebrae of a snake are fitted
together by a kind of ball and socket
articulation, which, however, is, capa
ble of only lateral or side to side mo
tion. A snake moves by propelling
himself on the points of his scales,
which, to him, answer the purpose of G
ribs. A snake does not climb .a tree aS
or a bush by coiling around It, as most
people who have not investigated the
matter believe, but by balancing him
self very evenly and holding on with
the points and edges of his scales. A A
snake on a pane of glass or other pol- ar
shed surface where the scales cannot H
take hold Is almost perfectly helpless. et
