Over Two Hundred nd Fifty Millions
In Annual Naval Budget. Seventeen
Million Over Last Year. -
London, March 17.-A variant on
the naval holiday suggestion was pro
ducgd by \Vinston Spencer Church
hill, fir.st lord of the aduirality, in the
house of Commons today. In introduc
ing the naval estimates for 1914-15,
amounting to $257,750,000, ho said:
"Every delay, accidental or deliber
ate, by the next strongest Power to
idngland, will be matched by us."
Admitting that the naval estimates
were the largest that had ever been
submitted to the Ilouse, Mr. Cittreh
hill swallowed the pill by inaking the
suggestion that in the ahsence of any
new deiaiture the estmateCs for 1915-1

IIIS simple rule of health is <auly called attention to by every doctor in the land, whose first question to
the patient almost invariably is, "Are your bowels regular?" Yet there's not one person in fifty who
takes proper care of the bowels. And the result of this foolish neglect is nine-tenths of all ill-health.
If today you are unable to free your body of waste matter at the usual time, or if the act causes straining,
pains and discomfort, don't let that condition occur again tomorrow. Unless your bowels can carry away the.
waste materials left after food is digested, decay sets in, the poisons of which, taken up by the blood, increase
the risk of Typhoid Fever, Appendicitis, and many other serious diseases.
In treating constipation, there is a right way and a wrong way. The wrong way is to take harsh purga
tives which even though they (1o clear the bowels, cause griping and nausea, injure the delicate tissues, and
so disturb the normal functions as to cause the return of constipation. The right way is to help Nature to
produce natural movement, without pain or discomfort, by using
