The moment you take Kodol your
Kodol is liquid, like the diges
tive juices. It acts the moment
you take it -
The pain ends, ''irritation stops,
the food is completely digested.
That is not true of other diges
ters, for they rely largely on pep
sin. Pepsin digests albumen perfect

Starch, fats and phosphates
form most of your food. Pepsin
can't digest those.
And it can't do bowel digestion.
iYet half of digestion is done by
the bowel fluids.
It requires many ingredients to
make a perfect digester, and Kodol
contains them all.
It digests any food any mixture
of foods completely.

extends to the bronchial tubes, causing hoarseness, and often an aggravating
cough ; the stomach is affected, resulting in dyspepsia, loss of appetite and
strength, and gradually all the mucous membranes of the body become dis

' bladder are attacked, and the constant passage of impure blood through the
lungs, diseases these important members, and Catarrh terminates in Con

stitutionally, for it is beyond the reach of local treatment. S. S. S. cures
Catarrh by cleansing the blood of all the impure catarrhal matter and at thq

Changes Faith Again. Davenport
people well remember Rabbi Samuel
Freuder, who some 17 years ago was
rabbi of Temple Enianuel, this city,
and while here experienced a change
of faith which led him ultimately into
the Protestant Episcopal church. The
church directory shows him listed as
a missionary under Bishop Whitaker
of Philadelphia. Telegrams from the
east now announce that Mt. Freuder
has experienced another conviction,
and that this one is that the one which
overcame him in Davenport is wrong.

Philosophy of Good Clothes. ' x
Besides the sentimental and aesthetic
reasons that exist for dressing well It
seems there Is a scientific one, if we
accept the statement of a London med
ical man that a good suit of clothes
acts as a tonic on the mind of the
wearer, while the consciousness that
one Is not at one's best in appearance
If wearing shabby or 111 fitting clothes
may be reckoned as. one of life's real
handicaps. In the moral support that
smart' .clothing furnishes he thinks
there is a source of mental strength
and activity that aids one to center
one's thoughts on the things that lead
to success in one's trade and profes
sion. To be shockingly attired and to
be constantly conscious of the condi
tion leads the mind Into worrying
ways that dissipate healthy energy.

At the next call the physician found
the patient again raving. To his puz

man had been going on that way for
several hours and that she had not
given him any medicine.
"But didn't I tell you to give it to
him if he began to see snakes again?"
demanded the physician.
"But he didn't see snakes this time,'
replied the nurse confidently. "H

ThereIs a lady living on a main
street in a certain great city who had
a window full of flowers, all in bloom.
One day she answered a ring nt tbe
doorbell, to find a little girl perhaps
nine years old shivering on the door
step.' "Please, ma'am," said the waif, lift
ing her shy. beautiful eyes to the face
above her, "will you give m6 a flow

one that the lady hesitated in surprise.
"Just one little flower," pleaded the
child, looking as if she were about to
cry.' ., !
"Why, of course." said the lady, "yon
thall have a flower.' Come in. You
hall hav a pretty red rose." ,
She stepped to the window where the
lowers grew,1 but before she had cut
oue a light touch fell, on her arm. .
"Xot that one, please not a red one:
that white one." And the little girl
pointed to a candldnm unfolding its
lily petals. .
"I cannot cut that one, child," said
the lady gently. "Why must you have
a white one? Why won't any flower
"Oh, because because it's for poor
mamma. Mamma Is dead, and I ran
away to get some flowers." The next
moment she was sobbing on the bosom
of a new friend, and when she went
away she carried the precious lily and
other flowers to the home where death
