Saved Girl's Life
"I want to tell you what wonderful benefit I have re
ceived from the use of Tledford's Black-Draught," writes 0
Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Cifton Mills, Ky.
"It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds,
liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe Black-Draught
saved my little girl's life. When she had the measles,
they went in on her, but one good dose of Thedford's
Black-Draught made them break out, and she has had no
more trouble. I shall never be without
* in my home." For constipation, indigestion, headache, dizzi
ness, malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and all similar
$ ailments, Thedford's Black-Draught has proved itself a safe,
* reliable, gentle and valuable remedy. 5
If you suffer from any of these complaints, try Black- S
Draught. It is a medicine of known merit. Seventy-five S
S* years of splendid success proves its value. Good forS
young and old. For sate everywhere. Price 25 cents.

D ON'T overlook this matter of
power. It is important. You
want an automobile that will
carry you through mud, sand and
snow, and do it easily. You want a
car that will climb hills, that will get
away quickly without laboring and
straining its every part.
Not all cars can do these things,
but you know that the Maxwell can
because you have the proof.
When the Maxwell stock touring
car set the World's Motor Non-Stop
Mileage Record a few weeks ago, it
encountered all sorts of unfavorable
conditions-rain, mud and hills, over
country and city roads--yet it cov
ered 500 miles per day, day after
day, for more than six weeks.
Power, plenty of power, unfailing
power, is absolutely essential to such
a wonderful performance as this.
Let us give you a booklet telling
all the details of this record breaking
Maxwell car. And let us tell you
about our partial payment plan, by
means of which you can make a cash
deposit and pay the balance while
you use the car. Give us the oppor
tunity and we'll prove our case.

' DiSTRIBUTORS FOR
'Healthgrams' On Skin
Flashed to Thousands
One of Nature's signals is an unhealthy skin. It is a
scientifle fact that the skin indicates the condition of the
blood and the blood is the building material for the body and all its
vital parts. Unless the blood is nourished and kept rich and healthy,
it will evenually react on the organs It feeds and retuce the Indi
vidual to a pitiable condition. Little do people realize the physical
ailments that drain away strength and vitaliy and that can be
traced straight to the poor supply of blood. Pipnples, yezema, Salt
