Germs in Her System
Every Woman Should Read This.
The .number of diseases peculiar to
woman is such that we believe this
space would hardly contain a mere
mention of their names, but it is a
fact that most of these diseases are
of a catarrhal nature. A woman can
not be well if there is a trace of the
catarrhal germs in her system.
Some women think there is no help
for them. We positively declare this
to be a mistaken idea. We are so
sure of this that we offer to supply
medicine absolutely free of all cost in
every instance where it fails to give
entire satisfaction or does not substan
tiate our claims. With this understand
ing, no woman should hesitate to be
lieve our honesty of purpose, or hesi
tate to put our claim to a test.
There Is only one way to cure Ca
tarrh. That way is through the blood.
You may use all the snuffs, douches or
like remedies for years without get
ting more than temporary relief at best.
Catarrh is caused by a germ. That
germ is carried by the blood to the
innermost part of the system until the
mucous membrane is broken, irritation
and inflammation produced, and a flow
of mucous results, and you can prob
ably realize how silly it is to attempt
to cure such an ailment unless you
take a medicine that follows the same
course as the germ or parasite.
Rexall Mucu-Tone is scientifically
prepared from the prescription of an
eminent physician who for 30 years
made his specialty Catarrh, and with
this medicine he averaged 98 per cent
of cures where it was employed. No
other remedy is so properly designed
for the ailments of woman. 'It will pur
ify and enrich the blood, stop mucous
discharge, destroy all germ matter, re
move all impurities from the system,
sooth, heal and strengthen the mucous
tissues, and bring about a good feeling
of health and strength.
We want you to try Rexall Mucu-
Tone on our guarantee. If you are not
benefited, or for any reason not satis
fled, simply tell us, and we will hand
back your money. Rexall Mucu-Tono

Lock Now Guarded. The approach
es to the Moline lock have now been
completed, and as soon as river navi
gation again opens, the lock will be
put in operation. .The construction
of the crib approaches will probably
do away with the criticism that, was
directed against the lock alleging that
it was of faulty construction. The
criticism arose from the fact that a
whirlpool was formed by the rush of'
the water through the lock, making it
extremely difficult for boats to ap
proach without colliding with the sides
of the lock. It was charged by river
men that the lock was of faulty con
struction, but the United States engi
neers who constructed it denied the
charge. The construction of the crib
will remedy the whole difficulty, they
say. The cribs were originally part c
the plan, but they could not be con
structed until the river went down to
low water mark.

OLD TIME TURKEY EAT
A Once Popular Feast in the
"It Isn't because there is no more
material iu the Blue mountain region
of Pennsylvania to provide a turkey
eat that we have had the last of those
famous festivities," ' said a former
dweller of the district described, "for
there are still wild turkeys a-plenty.
"The turkey eat has gone out with
the passing of the people whose homes,
traditions and mauner of life made it
possible and with the occupation that
was once theirs.
"In the days when the turkey eat
was the great winter festivity in the
mountain districts between the Schuyl
kill and the Juniata watersheds the
sparse population was chiefly of rude
and rugged woodmen and their fami
lies, many of them descendants of
pure Pennsylvania Dutch stock. Scores
of them depended almost entirely on
their skill with gun and trap for their
food supply. '
"The cabins of these mountaineers
were built of logs, the chinks between
which were filled In with clay. A
huge stone chimney rose at one end
of the cabin outside, covering that en
tire end, while on the inside it opened
on a broad fireplace across that end
of the room.
"The cabin was hanked all around
with earth, against which hemlock and
pine boughs were heaped. Sometimes
rows of cord wood were piled up al
most to the eaves, the better to keep
out the cold, which is always intense
during winter on those wind swept
"There was rarely a cabin with more
than one room. The walls were dark
and smoky, and from .rafter or beam
nung plentifully strips of jerked veni
son and chunks of smoked bear meat,
along with hams and bacon from the
family pigs fattened in the woods and
almost na wild as the bear and the
deer. But the choicest and best bo
loved thing of the cabin's larder was
the fat and well frozen wild turkey.
"While the woodsman's cabin was al
ways prepared for a turkey eat. it
never knew when it was coming. A
turkey eat began with the making up
of a party lh a neighboring village or
settlement. Taking along a fiddler,
they would appear at this, that or the
other woodsman's cabin of a winter
evening, and the woodsman and his
family did the rest.
"Instantly the birch wood pall of ci
der came forth. While the cabin's
guests drank cider the host prepared
and spitted the turkey over the hick
ory coals in the fireplace to roast for
the feast. When it was ready for the
table it was placed before the guests
on a big tin platter. Each one carved
for himself, the plates being squares
of birch bark.
"The turkey eat was not eomplete,
though, without a liberal supply of
paan baas' and head cheese, and with
it went the sweetest of rye bread and
butter. Paan haas is a strictly Penn
sylvania Dutch creation.
"It Is made from the rich Juices left
after boiling the ingredients for head
cheese, these being thickened to a stiff
paste with buckwheat flour. This paste
is pressed in forms until cold and is
served in slices. It is a dull blue in
color, very rich and very good.
"After the feast the turkey eat was
rounded out by a Tdght of Jollity super
induced by the fiddle and maintained
by it In its music for the old fashioned'
cotillon figures and reels, which were
danced until the gray of morning.
"But most of those old time woods
men have passed away,, and on those
who are still dwellers In the mountains
the game laws have forced a situation
that leaves them with their ancient oc
cupation gone, and the hunt being no
longer a source of maintenance its tra
ditions have departed with it. The
newer generation of these people is of
other tastes and associations, so while
the wild turkey is yet In proximity, in
that Blue mountain region to supply
the material for the festive turkey cat
the traditions and associations that
made it possible are no more, and it is
gone, like the apple cut. the quilting
bee, the pig killing frolic and others of
the old time rural pastlmesthat are
now but a memory." New York Sun.
