Nature has provided the stomach
with certain natural fluids known as
the digestive juices, anp it is through
these juices that the food we eat is
acted upon in such a way as to produce
the rich, red blood that flows through
the viens of our body and thereby b
makes us strong, healthy and robust
and it is the weakening of these dines- p
tive juices that destroyes health. It is a
our own fault if we destroy our own h
health, and yet it is so easy for any one
to put the stomach out of order. When r'
you need to take something take it
promptly, but take something youn
know is reliable-something like Kodol b

is pleasant to take, it is reliable and is

Ancient Scotch Custom Which Involved
Sir John Sinclair's "Statistical Ac- r
count of Scotland" contains notices of r
many old customs, which still contin- 1
ned to be observed in the Highland's,
though they were even then fast dying
out. From the eleventh volume of that
great work, which was published In
1791 and the succeeding years, we
learn, on the authority of the minister
of Callender, Perthshire, that the boys b
of the township assembled in a body
upon the moors on May day and pro- I
ceeded to dig a circular trench, leaving
the soil in the center undisturbed, so as t
to form a low table of green turf suf
ficient in size to accommodate the
They lighted a fire and prepared a
custard of milk and eggs and a large
oatmeal cake, which they baked upon a
stone placed in the embers. Wbn they
had eaten the custara, they di-ided the sI
cake into as many equal portions as
there were persons in the assembly n
and daubed one of those pieces with
charcoal until it was perfectly black.
They then placed all the pieces of cake
together in a bonnet, and each in turn a
drew one blindfolded, the holder of the
bonnet being entitled to the last piece.
The boy who drew the blackened por- p
tion was destined to be sacrified and c
was compelled to leap three times
through the flames.
Although the ceremony had degen
erated into a mere pastime for boys, it y
is evident that it must once upon a
time have involved the actual sacrifice
of a human .being in order to render e
the coming summer fruitful.-Gentle- s;
