Why? It 1 e"und 10? fintr than any Standard ground cement
The finer a cement is ground, tho stronger It is. For the cementing
value, the binding power, depends upon the fineness to which the parti
cles nre ground. That's tho reason for tho great strength of
Ash Grove Superfine
Uncle Sam's engineers set a standard for fineness below which no
cement may go without being penalized. But they also decreed that
you can use 3 less of a cement for every 1 increase of fineness over
Standard ground. Slnco Aih Grava Superfine is 10 finer than
Standard you could use 30$ less of it under ideal condition!. Such con.
ditions do not always exist so it is guaranteed that 20 less can be used.

A Nervous Woman Finds

Many remedies are recommended
for diseases of the nervous system
that fail to prrlucc results because
they do not reach the scat of the
trouble. Dr. .Miles' Nervine has
proven its value in such cases so
many times that it is unnecessary
to make claims for it. You can
prove its merits for yourself by
getting a bottle of your druggist,
who will return the price if you

the armies, organized both for warlike
and peaceful purposes, in all of these,
however, the dominating Idea, so far,
has been that of Increasing the
amount of muscular and mechanical
energy controlled by ono master
mind. It Is true that many Individ
uals arc employed In transmitting di
rections, In recording operations, etc.;
but the central Idea permeating every
thing Is that the controlling Individ

every decision relating thereto. It
has always been a problem of supple
