Stomach misery after eating the
heartiest repast will never appear IT j
you swa'.low two little MI-O-NA Stom

you. but a most efficient remedy that
banishes poisonous gases, prevents
fermentation and sourness, and helps
the stomach to properly digest the
richest f(Kd. Thousands of traveling
men throughout this broad land are
never without MI-O-NA Stomach Tab
lets. At the first sign of distress, this
friend of the stomach Is brought forth
and many a man has been Baved from
serious attacks of indigestion by tak
ing MI-ONA Stomach Tablets in
But bear In mind that MI-O-NA
does more than give relief; if taken
regularly as directed it will put an
end to any case of indigestion no
matter how chronic.
Ml-O-NA Stomach Tablets are com
pounded from a physician's prescrip

headache, acidity, nervousness, foul
breath, h'nvlnesn and despondency,
and if they do not give satisfaction,

The Modern Woodmen of America
are now planning a step which will
mark an epoch in fraternal insurance,
the patting of the fraterna'.s on as
sound a basis as the old line compan
ies. The plan Is to ask the various
state legislatures throughout the Jur
isdiction to enact new laws making It
possible for a fraternal company of i
write what is termed a guaranteed j
policy, a policy in which a certain rate j
and a certain number of assessments
per year is absolutely fixed. Present
laws, generally speaking, do not per
mit a fraternal insurance company to
write such a policy, requiring instead
that a provision be inserted making
possible the increasing of the rate
and the levying of special assess
ments. "There is neither reason nor Jus
tice," the Woodman authorities state,
"in requiring fraternal societies col
lecting adequate rates to carry in con
tracts a provision for levying addi
tional assessments, when the rates
charged make it certain that such ex
tra assessments will never be called.
The provision is, in fact, a statutory
threat, wholly unwarranted by pres
ent secure conditions." The proposed
law is especially demanded, it is add
ed, by way of assuring the members
of fraternal societies that they will
not be burdened with extra assess
ments in their old age.

N. B. Langiey, Madison. Wis., says:
"I was almost helpless with rheuma
tism for about five months. Had it in
my neck so '. could nnt turn my head,

any relief whatever until I procured

In a few hours the pain was relieved
and In three days the rheumatism was
completely cured and I was at work."
