Guard Your Children
Against Bowel Trouble
Many children at an early age
become constipated, and frequently
serious consequences result. Not
being able to realize his own con

constantly watched, and a gentle
lixative given vhen necessary.
Dr. Miles' Laxative Tablets are
especially well adapted to women
and children. The Sisters of
Christian Charity, eji Charles St,

parents know ho hard it is to giie

though the tate is partially dis

ative Tablets, however, this diffi
culty is overcome. The shape of
the tablets, their appearance and
candy-like taste at once appeal to
any cluld, with the result that they
are taken without objection.
The rich chocolate flavor and
absence of other taste, make Dr.
Miles' Laxative Tablets the ideal
remedy for children. ,

in part, regarding the Douglas p-o-po'al

"It looks a pity tbat after all these

lose her court house just when she is
coming back to the large mining

the recompense for Ibe oiber. Doog
las is taking the lead to the end of get
ting the removal enabling act through
the electioo. Douglas want tbe
court bouse. Should removal be de
cided upon, of course Doug'as will
have to reckon witb Bisbee and Low
ell. Io the meantime the Donglaa
slogan of "we do not care where tba
court honse goes to long as it is
brought out cf Tombstone" will be'
accepted bere as breeze out of 'lie

It is quite evident from this that

and so ate the rest of the tax payers.
