Almost the last work of the Belgian
astronomer Iouzeau was an article in
which, while arguing In favor of a dee,
imal division of time, lie pointed out
the origin of the double set of twelve
hours represented on our watch and
clock faces. Tito ancient inhabitants
of Mesopotamia chose the number 12
as an arithmetlical base because it has
four divisors-viz, 2, 3. 4 and 6. while
10 has only two divisors-viz, 2 and 5.
They counted twelve hours in the day
and twelve in the night. measuring the
day by the progress of the sun tiand the
night by the progress of the stars
across the sky. This, system, prevall
ing over all others, has conic down to
us, and so our watches bear on their
faces a souvenir of those anielnt dIays
when the sun served for'a lock' hiand

Thousands of people have been con

Their physicians have told them that

After this they have resorted to
Peruna and found relief. -1

assume that no other remedy has
equaled Peruna in its beneficent work.
