LAX-FOS IS AN IMPROVED CASCARA
A DIGESTIVE LAXATIVE
CATHARTIC AND LIVER TONIC
LAX-Fos is not a Secret or Patent Medi
cine but is composed of the following
old-fashioned roots and herbs:
BLUE FLAG ROOT
MAY APPLE ROOT
In LAX-Fos the CASCARA is improved by
the addition of these digestive ingredi
ents making it better than ordinary CAS
CARA, and thus the combination acts not
only as a stimulating laxative and cathar
tic but also as a digestive and liver tonic.
Syrup laxatives are weak, but LAx-Fos
combines strength with palatable, aro
matic taste and does not gripe or disturb
the 6tounach. V. One bottle will prove
LAX-Fos is invaluable for Constipation,
Indigestion or Torpid Liver. Price 50c.
Despondeney Due to Constipation.
Women often become nervous and

stipation it is easily-corrected by tak
ing an occasional dose of Chamber
lain's Tablets. These tablets are esay

Old (:ory to Float. Over Islands To.
Copenhagen, Mar, a 29.-Tle Danish
ensign, which has floated over the
Dlanish \Vest Indies for two find a half
cenltlries, will be hauled down on Sat
urday to the av'Oilpaniment of salit's
from the D;anish cruisier Valkyrienl and
an American squadron and tIle Stars
and Stripes will be hoisted in its place.
According to the present arrangelneuts
an American naval representative will
take possession of the Islands without
taiting the arrival of an American
'ie formal transfer of sovereignty
might, according to the treaty, . take
place any time up to A pril 16. The se.
lection of next Saturday was decided

place before the American Congress
meets to pass upon the question of
peace or war with Germany. Any pos

neutrality or the right of transfer to

It Is assumed here that Saturday's
ceremonies will be simple. After the'
Dauit;h flag is lowered the cruiser Val
kyrien will withdraw' and return to
)enuark with Commodore Konow, its
commander and p.resent acting Gov
cinor of the islands. Some of the civil
authorities will probably remain for
somic time longer in order to assist
the American ofllials in taking over
the administration of the island. They
will also be concerned with the ques
tion of the future nationality of the
islanders who, according to the King's
letter of farewell, can retain their
Danish citizenship if they so desire.
The purchase price of the islands
will be paid in Washington and per
iaps retained on deposit in America
to assist in financing Danish import
trade from the United States. Many
suggestions have been made here ,as
to tile ultimate use to which the
money shall be put, but no decision
has yet been reached.
The husband is often worried over
the condition of his wife during her
period of expectancy. The thought
that he is helpless to relieve her phys
ical suffering and discomfort causes
him great distress.
"Mother's Friend" is tt 'safe ex
ternal lubricant which penetrates to
the fine network of nerves beneath the
skin of the abdomen. It has a marked
tendency to 'relieve the muscular
strain to which these broad, flat ab
dominal muscles are ubjected.
If husbands will se re for the ex
pectant mother a bot e of "Mother'
Friend" from their dr ggist, they 1
find that they have ided to a cry

The mother shoul a y "Mother's

in its pre-natal work the mother will
experience much less pain.
