flfiy LACK OF BLOOD
CALLS FOR THE USE OF DR. WIL
LIAMS' PINK PILLS.
These Pills Cure Blocdlessness
As Sure As Food Cures
When the body is weak and the
Mood thiu it is sometimes difficult to
find the cause unless a wasting illness
has preceded, or the sufferer happens
to be a girl on the verge of woman
hood. In such casts a complete
change of climate or of work will some
times effect a cure. It takes a long
time, however, and for the great ma
jority of sufferers is out of the ques
tion. Mr. C. K. I .egg. of Tipton. W. Va..
found a method of treatiug hloodless
liess that is within the reach of all
and that much testimony has demon
strated to be wonderfully successful.
"I have tried Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
several times and they have never yet
failed to build up the system and re
new the blood. I used them on one oc
casion for weakness caused by linger
ing malarial fever that began in the
spring of ISM. The worst effects of
this was indigestion and a bad state of
my Mood. I was anaemic, as the doc
tors say. People generally would say
that I did not have blood enough, or
that I did not have the right kind of
blood; mine was too thin. I was bad
ly annoyed by sour risings from my
stomach. There was a good deal of
pain. too. in my back ami under my
right shoulder blade."
"How long did these troubles last?"
"For over two years. For four
months of that time I was under the
care of a physician, but his medicine
did me no good. Meanwhile I learned
of the cures that had been wrought
by Dr. Williams' Pink Pill."
"You owe your cure then to thee
"I certainly do. and 1 also know that
they are helping others to whom I
have recommended them. One frUnd
reports that they have done more to
relieve her insomnia and nervousuess
than any medicine she had ever taken.
Another friend says that they have
cured her indigestion end made her
sallow complexion a clear one. They
have real merit and I know nothing
that would take their place."
Dr. William s Pink Pills cure blood
lessness jut-t as sure as food cures
fcunger. A pale anaemic person needs
one thing enly new blood. Dr. Will
iams' Pink Pills make new blood. They
don't act on the bowels. They don't
bother with mere symptoms. But.
when Dr. Williams Pink Pills replace
bad wirh good blood, they strike
straight at the root and caus of many
diseases like headaches, biliousness,
indigestion, anatm'a. neuralgia, sciat
ica, locomotor ataxia tuid Ihe secret
trouble that every woman knows.

New Social Club. A social organ
ization which may be one of the most
exclusive in this section is being form
ed in this city and will probably be
formally launched within the next 10
days. The home of the club will be on
Campbell's island, where a tract of
land has been leased and where an ele
gant club house will be erected this
fall. The tract on which the club house
will be erected is 12uxlu, situated
on the northwest portion of the island
near C. H. Deere's bungalow, one of
the prettiest spots on the island. The
club house will be 40x60 feet, of pleas
ing architectural design, and equipped
with all modern fixtures. The i-t nur
ture will be surrounded by a veranda
where the members and their friends
v.ill have a pleasant place to spend
warm summer afternoons an I even
ings. A nine-hole golf course will be
provided, and many golf enthusiasts
who now play on the arsenal links will
undoubtedly find Campbell's island a
more pleasant resort. Tennis courts
are also being planned in connection
with the .club, and an automobile
course alonK the shore of the island
may be made later. In order that the
members of the club may reach the is
land in automobiles, a ferry will trans
fer the machines across the river from
a point somewhere near the west end
of the island. A first-class garage will
be built where the cars may be repair
ed and house in case of storm.
