It's sure to be impaired. In Ar buckles' Coffee you have a coffee that's sci entifically roasted, de livered to you with all the pores of the berry her metically sealed. You're sure of a good cup of cof fee because all the coffee flavor and aroma are kept intact until you want it. And the price? ileal! has long been famons as the most economical coffee in the world. It's a good, honest, de licious coffee at an honest price Millions of pounds sold every year. Millions of tables sup plied with no coffee but Arbuckxes.

Smoked hams at Baker's. ASH VQUR MOW Ask your physician this ques tion, "What b the one great remedy for consumption?' He will answer, "Cod-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 unen durable. What b to be done ? This question was ans wered when we first made SCOTTC EMULOIOH oT Cod-Liver Oil with Hypo- I phosphites. Although that was nearly twenty-five years ao, yet it stands alone to day the one great remedy for all affections of the throat and Junes. The bad taste and odor have been taken away, the oil itself has been f partly digested, and the most sen sitive stomach objects to it rarely. Not one in ten can take and dicck the plain oil. Nine out of ten can $ -take SCOTTS EMULSION and fi gtst it. Thafs why it cores so many cases of early consumption. Even in advanced cases it brings 1 cotntort and greatly prolongs Itfc yx. mnd ft op, Hdiaggbts. ' . SCOTT & BOWNE, Chcmiu. New York.
