GREAT CHANGE SHOWN
Washington, Jan. 11. A preliminary
statement giving the distribution of
ture, whreby th well-known prop-! the foreign-born white population of
cent of the total in 1910 as against
76.6 per cent, in 1900.
Against the decline in tne propor
tion for these countries stand very
large gains shown for natives of
Austria-Hungary, Italy and Russia and
Finland, for each of which the propor-
cade 1901-1910, the relative distribu- t:on in 1910 Is more than double that
erties of blsmuth-subnltrate and pep
sin hav been combined with car
minatives and other agents.
Blsmuth-subnltrate and pepsin
are constantly employed and recog
nized by the entire medical profes
sion as Invaluable in tbe treatment
of indigestion and dyspepsia.
The pepsin used In Rexall Dys
pepsia Tablets Is carefully prepared
so as to develop its greatest effi
ciency. Pepsin supplies to the diges
tive apparatus one of the most Im
portant elements of the digestive
fluid. Without it the digestion and
assimilation of food are Impossible.
The carminatives possess proper
ties which aid In relieving the dis
turbances and pain caused by undi
gested food. This combination of
these Ingredients makes a remedy In
valuable for the complete relief of
Indigestion and dyspepsia.
We are so certain of this that, we
urge you to try Rexall Dyspepsia
Tablets on our own personal guar
antee. Three sixes, 25 cents, 50
cents and $1. Remember, you can
obtain Rexall remedies only at our
store the Rexall store. The Thom

somewhat more than four-fifths for
1871-1S80 to three-fourths for 1SS1
1890, about two-fifths for 1S91-191-0,
and only a little more than one-fifth
was an increase in the number of na
tives of Great Britain from 1,166,863
to 1,221,400, or 4.7 per cent, although
for natives of Wales alone there was
a decrease of very nearly 11,000; an
shown for the preceding census.
In 1900 there were in continental
United States 636,968 natives of Austria-Hungary,
consisting of 6.2 per
cent of the total foreign-born whites,
but tn 1910 their number was 1,058,-
700, or 12.4 per cent of the total.
Similarly, of natives of Italy there
were 483,963, or 4.7 per cent, in 1900,
and 1,341,800 or 10.1 per cent, in 1910,
and of natives of Russia and Finland
C40.710, or 6.3 per cent, in 1900, and
and 1,706,900, or 12.8 per cent, in 1910.
For persons born in each of these
three countries an increase of more
than 150 per cent Is shown for the
decade 1900-1910; together they now
constitute fully 35 per cent of the
total foreign-born white population of
the country as against a little more
than 17 per cent ten years ago.
There has been an increase during
the decade of over 100 per cent In the
number of natives of Mexico in this
country from 101,908 in 1900 to 218,
800 in 1910 but they are largely con

California and New Mexico.
