three before they rallied sufriciently
to take wing.

W. H. Morrison killed a pig this
seasou that had three well developed
kidneys, aud Mrs. Sallie Lewis

in the commona and played "crap"
for each other's kidneys, and Morri
son's pig having won, was wearing
the extra kidney as an ornament.

ASK YOUR
O0CT0R!
Ask your physician this ques
* tion, "What is the one great
remedy for consumption ? "
He will answer, "tod-liver
oil." Nine out of ten will
answer the same way.
Yet when persons have
consumption they loathe all
fatty foods, yet fat is neces
sary for their recovery and
they cannot take plain cod
liver oil. The plain oil dis
turbs the stomach and takes
away the appetite. The dis
agreeable fishy odor and
taste make it almost uncn
durable. What is to be done ?
This question was ans
wered when we first made
SGOTT'S
EMULSiON
j of Cod-Liver Oil with Hypo
phosphtes. Although that
was nearly twenty-five years
iago, yet it stands alone to
day the one great remedy
fcr a!l affections of the throat
and iungs.
The bad taste and odor have been
takca away, the oil Hself has been
partly dijested. and the inost str.
siiive stomach objects to it rarcly.
I..A or.e in ten ean take and digtst
\ the plain oil. Nine out of ten can
take SCOTTS EMULSION and di
gest iL That's why it curcs so
many cascs of early consumption.
Even in advanccd cases it brings
comfort and grcatiy prolongs life.
