THE ABGUS, IONdXY. FEBEUART - 1904
For Li qu ozone
Thi Company, after testing Liquo
cone for two years in the most difficult
jerm diseases, paid $100,000 for the
American rights. That is by far the
highest price ever paid for similar
rights on any scientific discovery.
, We publish this fact to show you the
value of .Liquozone. Men of our class
don't pay a price like that save for a
product of remarkable worth to hu
manity. -Kills Inside Germs.
" T"he reason for that price is this:
Liquozone alone can kill germs in the
body without killing the tissues too.
Nothing else in the world is so good
for the human body; yet Liquozone is
a 'germicide so certain that we pub
lish on every bottle an offer of $1,000
for a germ that it cannot kill.
Liquozone destroys at once and for
ever the cause of any germ disease.
'And there is no other way to do it.
Any drug that kills germs is a poison,
and it cannot be taken internally.
Medicine is helpless in troubles of this
Liquozone is not made by compound
ing drugs. Its virtues are derived
solely from gas, made in large part
from the best oxygen producers. By a
process requiring immense apparatus
and 14 days time, this gas is made part
of the liquid product. Liquozone has,
for more than 20 years, been the con- j

It's Quality That Counts
In coal it's quality that makes

it is quality that makes possible

quality that lessens your fuel

The result is a product that ' does
what oxygen does. Oxygen is the very
source of all vitality, the most essen
tial element of life. Liquozone is a
vitalizing tonic with which no other
known product can compare. Its ef
fects are exhilarating and purifying.
But germs are vegetables; and Liquo
zone like an excess of oxygen is
deadly to vegetable matter.
Liquozone goes wherever the blood
goes, destroying every germ in the
body. In this way it cures diseases
which medicine never cures. It will do
more for sick humanity than all the
drugs in the world combined.
These are the known germ diseases.
All that medicine can do for these
troubles is to help Nature overcome
the germs, and such results are indi
rect and. uncertain. Liquozone kills
the germs, wherever they are, and the
results are inevitable. By destroying
the cause of the trouble, it invariably
ends the disease, and forever.

THE WILD BIRD.
Wlien the Naturalist Gota a Chance
to Stud? Him at Cloae Range.
For the greater part of the year fear
is the dominant instinct in the life of
nearly every wild bird or mammal
which lias to contend with man or
overt enemies of any kind. But with
the periodic revival of the reproductive
functions profound changes occur not
only in the bodily parts, but in the in
stincts which govern their movements
and life. The parental instincts, which
are essential to the generation and
successful rearing of the young, begin
to assert themselves and by blocking
or supplanting the sense of fear hold
them to the focal point the nest and
later the young during the period
when parental care and cveu parental
sacrifice is necessary.
This wonderful parental instinct, or
series of instincts, rises gradually like
n fever, reaches a maximum and then
as slowly subsides. When at its height
every sense seems to be lost in an all
absorbing passion. This is the time to
approach the wild bird. We can watch
and record with pencil and camera ev
ery act which occurs at the nest. We
can approach as near as we please and
by aid of the tent arc enabled to ana
lyze in detail the behavior of the same
birds for a period of from one to three
weeks. l'rofessor Francis II. Ilerrick

The Story of Amber.
There is a beautiful story to account
for the existence of amber. It is that
the sisters of Phaeton, that foolhardy
youth who tried to drive the chariot
of the sun god, wept bitterly at his
death, and their crystal tears fell Into
the sea and turned to umber.
The more scientific explanation, if
not so poetic, is that amber is the fos
sil resin from prehistoric cone bearing
trees. The wood rots away, but the
resin Is preserved in fossil form-
-sue Blooialas Thorn Tree.
There is a legend to the effect that
the thorn blooms on Christmas day.
It is said that St. Joseph of Arinin
tha?a landed near Glastonbury and
stuck his staff in the ground. It took
root, grew, and blossomed every Christ
mas day thereafter. The tree was
hewn down by a Puritan of the time
of Cromwell, but in doing this deed he
cut his leg, and chips flying from his
ax blinded him. The trunk, though
separated from the root, grew and
flourished, and for many years slips
and blooms from the tree of St. Joseph
were sokl by the merchants of Bristol.
"Dr. Thirdly Is certainly an up to
date c lergyman," said Fosdick,
So?" said Keedick. .
"Yes, sir. One of his parishioners
was killed by the explosion of his auto
mobile, and the doctor took for the
text of his funeral sermon the Biblical
account of Elijah going to heaven fa a
chariot of fire." Smart Bet.
Costa Rica is a mountainous country,
and consequently some portions are not
