Mr. Marion Holcomb, of Nancy, Ky., says: "For quite
a long while I suffered with stomach troub!c. I would
have pains and a heavy feeling after my meals, a most
disagreeable taste in my mouth. If I ate anything with
butter, oil or grease, I would spit it up. I be'an to have
regular sick headache. I had used pills and tablets, but
after a course of these, I would be constipated. It just
seemed to tear my stomach all up. I found they were
no good at all for my trouble. I heard
recommended very highly, so began to use it. It cured
me. I keep it in the house all the time. It is the best
liver medicine made. I do not have sick headache or
stomach trouble any more." Black-Draught acts on
the jaded liver and helps it to do its important work of
throwing out waste materials and poisons from the sys
tem. TIs medicine should be in every household for
use in time of need. Get a package today. If you feel
sluggish, take a dose tonight. You will feel fresh to
morrow. 25c a package. All druggists.

TOOK FOXES IN NEAT TRAP
Probably Only intmance on Record
Where Youngsters Were Caught

How four foxes were caught in a
horse blanket Is a quaint '-ite told by
R. A. Ilutmiacher In the Ilunter-Trader
Trapper of Columbus, 0.
"I happened to be driving south of
Iapatee. Ill., with the Implement deal
er of that town. manking business cils
oni several farners of that section,
when, to my surprise, I s'aw on a very
steep hill In the distance severul young
- foxes playing about as if no human
was near." says Mr. Ilutmacher. "My
partner and I decided to try our luck
at catching them, so driviLg on a little
further, we tied our horses and. set
ou, neross the ild after them.
"When we reached the hole, they
were ill up over the lill chasing eact
other, so telling my companion to go
around the hill] and chase them my
way I threw a horse blanket over their
hole aind waited. As they came rush

the b1lanket just enough to ilde myself

"They iall got to the hole about the
same timae, when I threw one end of
the bltinket over them, the other end
being over ithe0 hole. In the excite
mient I succeded in catching ill four
in the folds of the blanket.
"We went back to the Iuggy aind

tile explanation of our good luck is the
