Our National Danger.
Time to Cry a Halt Before Complete
There are thousands, both men and
? women, who do not take time to cat
properly. They rush through life, and
as a result we have an age of indiges
tion, nervousness, irritability, s'eepless
nights, and morose disposition. Our
national danger is stomach weakness,

With the discovery /of Mi-o-na tab
lets, which strengthen the walls of the
stomach and stimulate secretion of the
digestive juices, there is no longer any
excuse for indigestion.
Sick headaches, jmlpit/ftion, yellow

many distressing results of indigestion

The Piano and Organ Man
A few words which you cannot help believing1
unless you are prejudiced.
3SELL AS RENOWNED PIANOS for tone, quality, elasticity
of touch and skilled workmanship as are made. 1 have no
schemes to sell a piano. When I sell a piano it is direct
from the factory to the purchaser, there being no unnecessary ex
pense. The price is the very lowest possible and the profit shorter
than of any dealer in this section. I do not have pianos drayed
around and left on trial, which adds to the cost and the buyer
pays it. If you know these facts and do not buy of me (for I sell
for less) then you simply prefer to pay from $75 to $150.00 more,
which is nothing but robbing one's self or of your loved ones.
LET MB TELL YOU ABOUT THESE PIANOS
