Millionaires seldom smile.-Andrew Car
See the sad old millionaire
Passing in his motor car;
Ah, how heavy is his care
And how drawn his features are!
What a pity he has not
Anything to make him glad;
Sorrowful, indeed, his lot
Thinking of it makes me sad.
Muffled in his warm fur coat,
You may think him richly blessed,
But a lump is in his throat.
And a pain is in his breast;
He is not compelled to work,
He may ride around at will,
But a thousand sorrows lurk
Underneath his wa!stcoast still.
All his days are dismal days.
Joys may coime to you and me,
But no smile of his betrays
Any hint of hidden glee;
Things which he cannot possess
Still confront him everywhere;
Hence his lack of happiness.
Poor old, sad old millionaire.

HOW CHRONIC COUGHS
Are Being Cured by VinoL )
Did, you ever cough for a month? )
Then just think how distressing it
aust be to have a cough hang on for 1
Mrs. Maria Primrose, of 87 Newell )
Street, Brooklyn, N. Y., says: "I had
a very heavy cold which settled into 1
a chronic cough, which kept me J
awake nights for fully three monthsl)
and felt tired all the time because my ]
rest was broken so much. The effect
of taking your cod liver and iron rem
edy, Vinol, is that my cough is gone.
I can now get a good night's rest, and
I feel much stronger in every way."
It is the combined action of the
medicinal elements, cods' livers, aided
by the blood-making and strength
creating properties of tonic iron which
makes Vinol so efficient in curing
chronic coughs, colds and bronchitis
-at the same time building up the

i Saving Time
Z OU can buy clothes in two ways. One way is to
choose the cloth from a piece of goods and
have your measure taken, by somebody who
may or may not know how; and wait ten days to three -
weeks to get them. You can't tell how becoming
they will be; you take a chance on the fit, you don'tT
know whether they will be well made or not.
The other way is to buy ready-made clothes.
1 You choose the finished garment, the styles are pro
3 duced by the best designers in the world, you know in
a few minutes if the clothes fit, You know when you
see our mark in them, that they're all wool, and ;
You can do it all in less than an hour, and- wear
the clothes home.
