Is easy to figure if you know what your stomach
is worth., Kodol keeps the stomach at par value,
by insuring good digestion. Kodol cures Dyspepsia.
Kodol Insures good digestion by
absolutely duplicates . Nature's
normal process, in perfectly digest
ing all food taken Into the stom
ach. While Kodol is doing this, the
6tomach Is resting and becoming
strong and healthy. A strong and
healthy stomach guarantees a
sound and active brain.
The man with a sound 6tomach
a stomach that Is doing for the
body just what Nature intended
It to do is the man who is always
prepared for any emergency. He
Is "there with the goods."
The man with a sick stomach, is
a man sick all over. When the
stomach i3 irritated by undigested
food, the blood and heart are di
rectly affected. Then dullness, un
natural sleepiness, sick-headaches,
v.er'go and fainting spells, and
even serious brain trouble develop.
Kodol will prevent these.
Spurring the stomach and brain
to Bpecial effort by "tonics" and
"stimulants" doesn't cure anything,
or accomplish any good. Neither
does dieting. Indigestion and the
serious ailments which it induces
can be averted and corrected only
by natural means.
Kodol supplies this natural
means. It performs the stomach's
work for it just as the stomach
should perform it while the stom
ach takes a little rest, "for the

When Blake was called on to rise

She was led from the room, and, after
motions for ,a new trial and arrest of

he had a statement to make as a rea-

surprise to his counsel, who were per

After being sworn and stating that
he had not . been promised immunity,
Blake told of being offered $1,000 by

He at first offered Kelly $500, which
was refused, he said., but the offer of

Blake's defense. Blake then told of
the offer of $10,000 and provision for

story told by Blake created a sansa

One Million Dollars For
a Good Stomach.
This Offer Should Be a Warning to
Every Man and Woman.
The newspapers and medical Jour
nals recently have , had much to say
relative-to a famous millionaire's offer
of a million dollars for a new stomach
This great multi-millionaire was too
busy to worry about the condition of
his stomach. He allowed his dyspep
fcia to run from bad to worse until in
i he end it' became incurable.
His misfortune serves as a warning
Everyone who suffers with dyspep
sia for a few years will give every
thing he owns for a new stomach.
Dyspepsia is caused by an abnor
mal state of the gastric juices. There
is one element missing. The cbsence
of this destroys the function of the
gastric fluids. They lose their power
to digest food.
We are now able to supply the miss
ing element to restore to the gastric
juices their digestive power, and to
make the stomach strong and well.
We know that Rexall Dyspepsia
Tablets will positively and permanent
ly cure disordered stomachs, indiges
tion and dyspepsia.
We want you to try them and wid
return your money if you are not
more than satisfied with the result.
Price. 25 cents. Only at our store.

"why; women suonHftrs want to take

That seems a short, sighted 'policy. A
woman hampered by a child stands
twice the chance of being detected that
she does -when operating minus such

argued tuat she fares better in the long
run, inasmuch as she is more likely to
be dismissed . with 1,'ouly a reprimand
