BETTER THAN CALOMEL
Thousands Have Discovered Dr.
Edwards' Olive Tablets are
a Harmless Substitute
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets the substi
tute for calomel are a mild but sure laxa
tive, and their effect on the liver is almost
instantaneous. They are the result of Dr.
Edwards' determination not to treat liver
and bowel complaints with calomel. His
efforts to banish it brought out these little
olive-colored tablets.
These pleasant little tablets do the good
that calomel does, but have no bad after
effects. They don't injure the teeth like
strong liquids or calomel. They take bold
of the trouble and quickly correct it. Why
cure the liver at the expense of the teeth?
Calomel sometimes p'.ays havoc with the
gums. So do strong liquids.
It is best not to take calomel, but to let
Dr. Edwards' Olivo Tablets take its place.
Most headaches, "dullness" and that
lazy feeling come from constipation and a
disordered liver. Take Dr. Edwards' Olive
Tablets when you feci "loggy" and
"heavy." Note how they "clear" clouded
brain and how they "perk up" the spirits.

Oriental Troops Willing to Enter War
Jn Continental Battleground,
Says Baron Ishii.
Paris, Nov. 24, 5:25 a. m. Japan is
willing to send a strong army to
Europe if the need arises, the Petit
Parisien says. A statement to this
effect is credited to Baron Ishii, Jap
anese foreign minister, by G. Le
chartier, Tokio correspondent of this
newspaper. He quotes Baron Ishii as
follows: "Thus far we have not con
sided the eventuality of sending an
army to Europe, but if there is oc
casion therefor Japan will immediate
ly send in one expedition a very strong
army. Japan does not intend to risk
a check."
In regard to the supplying of arms
for Russia by Japan, the foreign min
ister is said to have remarked:
"Russia does not need men, as only
one-third of the men mobilized have
been armed. By the end of the month
Japan will have done much toward
arming completely the other two
thirds." DEEDS, NOT WORDS.

The gift to these two institutions is

ASKS COMPENSATION
BE GIVENIN LUMP
Carmine Manantella Wislies to Re
turn to His Home in Italy
In order that he may return to hi
native Italy where he would be able
to eke out a living in his crippled
condition, Carmine Manantella? of
this city went before Compensation
Commissioner George B. handler
yesterday and asked that instead of
receiving his compensation weekly,
be given it in a lump sum.
Injured Last June.
Manantella wasemployed by R. N.
Peck in Hawleyville and last June
a large rock fell on his back, panning
him to the ground. He was taken to
the Danbury hospital and given
treatment. X-ray examination fail
ed to show any broken vertibrae and
after a week he returned to his son's
home in this city. Since that time,
however, he had been confined to his
bed, suffering from pains in the
lumbar regions and lower spine, being
unable to sit up or get up.
In asking that he be awarded a
lump compensation, Manantella told
the commissioner hat he wants to
return to live with his sister. They
own a house and little plot of land
there and by careful attention he
could raise fruit enough to get a liv
ing. Manantella's oldest son has re
cently been called back to Italy to
fight.
Dr. Paul Sweet has been attending
the injured man and says he is a
hard patient. Either because he does
not understand what the surgeon is
trying to do, or because he is suffer
ing such excruciating pain, it is hard
to treat him. The doctor said that
the patient's slow recovery is due m
part to lack of sufficient spinal sup
port. If a bone In his back has been
displaced the injury will be per
manent. Otherwise he may recover
in a year and a half. At present
there is $166 due the patient.
Xo Settlement Made.
Commissioner Chandler ruled that
the only way to settle the matter as
requested by the plaintiff would be
for the insurance company to agree.
Immanuel DiNonno, representing
Manantella, conferred with Adjuster
Mehegan but no settlement was
reached. The company offered to
settle for $570. This would be for
permanent incapacity for a year and
a half. The offer was rejected and
compensation for two and one-half
years was asked. Until a definito
settlement is made. Compensation
Commissioner Chandler has awarded
Manantella $7.32 per week as long
as he is incapacitated.

Of Mayers.
New York, Nov. 24. Frank L.
Woodward, of Denver, president of
the United States Golf Association
says there will be no official rating
of golf players for next season. Mr.
Woodward who is here today, says
there will be two names at the head
of the list, thpse of the open and ama
teur champions. All the others will
be grouped alphabetically. He adds:
"While the minor bodies will un
doubtedly have a pretty good idea as
to where their leading golfers belong
they will, because of local pride or
sentiment, naturally be inclined to be
liberal with their findings and as a
result include players who may be
doubtful in opinion of the execu
tive commit which, of course, must
be the final court.
"The United States Golf Associa
tion is not going to let up in the least
i its effort to keep the game free

Certain ones who have been playing

Baby Will Probably Die Without
Operation
New York, Nov. 24. A case re
sembling that of the Bollinger baby
of Chicago developed here today
when a New York physician confront
ed the question whether the life of
a defective baby should be saved by
surgical operation, despite the wished
of the parents.
The baby, a girl was born last
night. Mentally the child appeared
to be normal but is paralyzed bciow
the waist, ha club feet, distorted
knee joints and a spinal ailment
which, physicians say, will prove
fatal if an operation is not sotfU
performed.
Dr. Julius Goldsmith the attending
physician, notified the parents that
the child's life could be saved only
by a promp operation. He said af
terward: parents absolutely re
fuse permi ,i for the necessary op
eration. I .aid probably save the
child's life, .-.2 though it would always
remain helplessly crippled. There l
no action that 1 can take without tk
permission of the parents."
The father of the defective baby
said: "I believe the Chicago physi
cian was right. For the sake of hu
manity, I had rather see this child
die now than have it live seven or
eight years in misery and suffering.
It Is a hard thing to say but it would
be better dead."
