Without An Operation Wonderful Healing of Rupture How a New Jersey Man Got Rid of a Severe, Obstinate, Right Inguinal Hernia Without the Slightest Trouble. Below is a picture of Eusene M. Pullen, a well-known carpenter of ; Manasquan. New Jersey. If you could see him at his work, particularly when : he handles heavy timber, jumps and climbs around like a youth, you would scarcely imagine that he had formerly been afflicted with a rupture. Ruptured in night side. At an early age, EuRene Pullen was sin express driver. He handled rail road baggage. One day after deliver ing a heavy trunk on an upper floor he felt a pain in the right groin. The suffering Increased and it was not long before the young man noticed the swelling. The doctor told youns Pullen that Tie was ruptured and that he must "either wear a truss throughout life or submit to a drastic operation. Ail sur geons know that hernia operations, with anaesthetics, etc., are dangerous; they may end fatally. Moreover, It is a well established fact that many rup ture operations are not successful: the bowel soon breaks through the sewed up opening and protrudes worse than ever. Afraid of Operation. Like most others. Mr. Pullen de clined to take the risks of an opera tion; the expense and loss of time had to be considered, too. Hoping he might get a little better encourage ment, he went to another physician who, to his sorrow, pave him even less hope. It was pointed out to the young man that unless the rupture were -perfectly held all the time or the sur geon's knife successfully used, he might expect an increase or doubling in the rupture with further complica tions, or the dreaded strangulated hernia which kills so many ruptured people. Victim of Trusses. The victim bought a truss, a harfl. spring-like affair, the best he could get. It tortured him. He tried an other still no relief. He was com pelled to give up his express business. The hard tasks of ordinary men were forbidden him. He became an insur ance agent, in which position he did not need to do bodily work. For six years Mr. Pullen dragged around, using various trusses, hard, elastic, etc., with never any content ment. One day his mother told him something she had Just found out. It was a simple and easy thing for him to do. He lost no time. Discorded His Truss. . Belief came at once, he almost for srot that he had any rupture. After ward came a cure a complete healing and, although years have passed and Mr. Pullen Is an energetic carpenter. working on buildings, climbing over roofs, lifting lumber and such like, he is absolutely free from the old hernia. He knows he is completely, lastingly cured. There was no operation, no lost time, no trouble comfort and contentment from the very outset. He is a strong, cheerful-minded man. Valurblo Information Free. t The valuable information which Mrs. Pullen read in a newspaper many . years ago and gave to her son, togeth er with further important facts, will be sent free to any reader of this who writes to Eugene M. Pullen, 105F Marcellus avenue, Manasquan. N". J., enclosing a stamp for reply. Mention the kind of rupture you have, whether on right or left side and what you have already done in your effort to cure it. A legion of cases of all kinds of rupture in men and women, includ ing Inguinal (groin), femoral, navel, scrotal, etc., have been reported com pletely healed. Age seems to make no difference.

Want Strong Aspirant for GoT-j ernor and Senator. ! LOOK TO GEORGE H, HODGES Eyes of Former Governor Cast Toward Washington. Gaitskill .or Helrering May Gire Governor Allen "Fits." BY A. L. SHULTZ. Kansas Democracy which came thru the state convention at Wichita without blacking its own eye, is now feeling the need of a domestic Moses who can lead the cause safely thru the campaign in this state. It is probable that that committee will meet soon and file selections for state offices. In the meantime overtures are to be made to men and women whose can didacy would draw support from much needed sources. Some of the responsibility of the campaign is to fall on the shoulders of men who won places on the na tional convention delegations. One of t!iee men will doubtless be George IT. Hodges of Olathe, former governor. Hodges is being pushed for the United States senatorshfp in a rather thank less contest against Senator Charles Curtis. Republican. Hodges has the opposition of the Billard faction in the par'y. That is about all. His Kyes on Washington. ' For six years Hodges's eyes have been turned toward Washington. His personal desire is doubtless to beat Senator Capper. But this looks like the year when the hands of the clock point in Hodges's direction if he is to run. Victor Murdock, former Progressive, at one time a Republican and more recently a Democrat, is another sena torial possibility. But men in politics who know Murdock intimately and well do not assume that he has so much as slight plans to abandon a 10,000 job to chase after a job that is remote and far away. Anyway, Murdock was a candidate against Cur tis in 1914 and knows something of the task in front of the Democrat nominee. There is almost as great a lack of enthusiasm in grabbing for the gov ernorship nomination as in seeking he chance to be the living sacruice for senator. A half dozen men have been mentioned, but it will seemingly fall to the lot of the state committee to make the party selection. Ben S. Gaitskill of Uirard ana Guy T. Helvering of Marysville. each came out of the state convention in good shape to make the race. Each is urged a candidate. CJaitskill seized an opportunity to make an appeal for the elusive and uncertain woman vote when he made a couple of speeches on the floor of the convention. On the other hand, Helvering developed won derfully in the esteem of certain party leaders when he graciously led the withdrawal parade in favor of Robert W. Blair of Topeka for a Big four honor. J. M. Davis of Fort Scott has announced. But he seemingly cannot unite factions in his party. In the eight congressional districts the Democrats now control but one the Eighth. Congressman W. A. Ayres, with a consistent record and an enormous personal following, is to be renominated without opposition. He will eive some Republican one of the busiest days of his life in winning the election. Anthony Faces Uttle Trouble. Lightning has not struck in the First and Seventh districts. In the First some candidate in Topeka favor able to the cause of organized labor. would be the logical candidate on the face of present conditions. Mayor Corwine has declined. Tom Moxcey of Atchison is one of the strong Dem ocrats of the district. But he won't run. Again the pulmotor boys must work if they hope to provide a supply of trouble for Congressman D. R. An thony, Jr., in November. Seventh district conditions have not shaped themselves. There is talk of Seward I. Pield of Medicine Lodge who is strong and aggressive. L. L. Tay lor, Dodg-e City; and John Kelly, Hugoton, have also been mentioned. Henderson S. Martin, former state NORMAL BLOOD THE BLOOD (bt lee kekbebt smith, m. p.) AFTER en IP OR FLU AND HARD WINTER COLDS After an attack of the grip or pneumonia, or even a hard cold, the blood is left thin, watery, and one is said to be anemic. Instead of the blood cells being round, as in diagram "A", they become irregular, as in "B." When you feel weak, nervous, or the skin breaks out in pimples, eruptions or boils, and you feel "blue" and without any snap or energy, sometimes hands cold and clam my, there is usually a large de crease in the red or white blood corpuscles and one should build up with some good blood-builder and tonic. You can put iron in your blood and the cells become round and :.ed, losing the irregular shape, by chairman and permanent chairman of the state convention at Wichita, looks like the logical candidates in the Sec ond. He could have the nomination without opposition, is friendly with labor and with McAdoo as the presi dential candidate, would . doubtless carry Wyandotte and other big coun ties in Ed Little's district. Editor In the Race? W. W. Austin, a new worker in state politics. Is slated for the nomination in the Fourth district. Austin is own er of an electric light plant at Strong City and among delegates to the Wich ita meeting was active and popular. Fifth district Democrats are ex pected to nominate Tom Johnson, edi tor and publisher of the Minneapolis Better Way. Johnson has pleaded the cause of pure and consistent Democ racy in th'e Fifth district and in Ot tawa county for a number of years and could doubtless secure the nomi nation without a dispute. In the Sixth district there may be a contest for an opportunity to op pose Hays B. White. Democrats in Jewell county Congressman White's home have passed resolutions endors ing J. C. Ruppenthal of Russell. Rup penthal is a former district judge in the northwest territory. Senator James A. Malone of Hern don is another strong possibility for the congressional nomination. John R. Connelly of Colby has been urged to run again, but is expected to de cline. Need a State Ticket The big trouble before the Demo crats just now is a state ticket with big. red letter leadership for senator and governor. This situation didn't develop in the harmony making at Wichita. Possibly the state committee may relieve matters. But the selec tive draft has met with much doubt ful success in choosing winning po litical tickets. In the state fight, the Industrial court may b but one of a half dozen issues. O. T. Wood, present United States marshal and governorship pos sibility, is strongly against the court law. But he would draw a receipt for trouble the minute he announced. On the other hand, there was a seem ing lack of enthusiasm when Davis of Bourbon announced on a strictly neu tral platform. It looks as tho Hel vering or Gaitskill must provide the setting for an organized fight for the governorship. And to date neither Hodges nor Murdock have offered themselves as the volunteer Moses to save Kansas to the Democratic party. TIM HATS FDR KANSAS GUARD War Department Has 600,000 Helmets for State Units To Bo Issued Soon. That the Topeka members of the Kansas National Guards are soon to "sport" tin hats, is indicated by new orders promulgated by the war de partment. The steel helmets used by the overseas troops are to be issued to the Xational Guard units, recognized by the regular army. According to the new order, they will be issued the new equipment as soon as the ordnance de partment can fill the requisitions. The new headgear will be a part of the surplus made for the American ex peditionary forces. 600,000 of the helmets being available. Whether or not the state troops will wear the helmets at their drills will be a matter for the decision of the state officers, but it is the intention of the war de partment that all troops called Into field service, whether regulars or Na tional Guards, be equipped with proper head protection. Only the Alaskan and Panama forces will be excused. CHILDREN Tf GIVE PEXXIES. County Superintendent to Start "Gift to FVanoe" Ca mpa ign. Miss Lorraine E. Wooster, superin tendent of public instruction, has sent literature and instructions to every county superintendent of schools in Kansas regarding the collection of a fund in each county for "America's Gift to France," which is to be a memorial statue to be placed on the Marne river to commemorate the part of France in the late war. County superintendents will con duct sub-campaigns for contributions to the fund until every school child in the state Is interested in giving at least a penny. It is estimated that if each pupil gives one cent, Kansas' share of the memorial cost will be raised. "America's gift to France" will take the form of a heroic statue designed by Frederick MacMonnies, American sculptor. It will be placed in a posi tion overlooking the Marne river near the village of Meaux where the first German advance on Paris was stopped on September 6, 1914, less than twenty miles from Paris. It will represent the Spirit of Liberty as a woman strug gling courageously ' with her enemies. The central figure will be surrounded by other figures representing the al lies. IN ANEMIA taking a good iron tonic, called "Irontic," put up by Dr. Pierce and sold by most druggists. This "Irontic" is compounded of a sol uble iron, nui and herbal extracts. With this you gain in vim, vigor and vitality. Instead of pale cheeks, tired and worn out before the day is half done, after taking "Irontic" your cheeks will have color, you will feel strong and vigorous and ready for work. Or if you like a good alterative and herbal tonic, such a one can be obtained at any drug store, favorably known for the past fifty years as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medi cal Discovery. This is made from the wild roots and barks of forest trees and without the use of alcohol. CLOSE OIL DOORS England Plans to Control the World's Oil Supply. Allow Only Britisli to Exploit British Territory. AMERICANS CAN'T KEEP PACE Demand for Fuel Liquids 'ot Being' Met. France and Holland 31 ay Join Sew Economic Move. Washington. April 24. Frequent statements credited to English sources that the British empire will soon con trol the future petroleum supplies of the -world are borne out by informa tion in possession of various depart ments of the government. No disposition exists to blame Great Britain for her exploitations they are regarded as an effort to assure fuel supplies for her own warships, com mercial fleets and industries. But the activities of Britain, coupled with those of other countries, are used to warn America that her own supply of petroleum is dwindling, and that be fore long she will be dependent on foreign supplies. Acquisitian of foreign oil lands by Americans is urged by government observers to insure fuel for the new merchant fleet, the more than six million automobiles, the navy, which, it is asserted, will be the largest in the world, and to provide the vast quantities of ptroleum required by industry. Only in this way, it is as serted, can America avoid a tremen dous toll in profits to the financial in terests of other countries in years to come. Drive World-Wide. It was recently learned by one gov ernment agency, for instance, that English interests are trying to get large concessions in Peru, and exclu sive rights to explore for oil there. It was said today by one authority there is not a section of the world likely to produce oil where British interests are not seeking arrangements which will enable them to control oil from the well to the consumer. British economists are responsible for the statement that with the ex ception of Mexico, and to a lesser ex tent Central America, Great Britain's control of the future oil supply is se cure. They assort British and Dutch companies will dominate the oil fields of Russia and Rumania when produc tion there recovers from curtailment caused by the war. The British virtu ally control the Persian fields, and French and British are rapidly ac quiring oil lands of the Near Fast, That it has made Britain's position in Mexico as good if not better than America's and that the British have the advantage in Central America, Venezuela. Trinidad, and of course in the British territories of Egypt and India. Jealous of Americans. "The American production of oil is not keeping pace with the demand," said Van H. Manning, director of the bureau of mines. "Facing a probable shortage of the domestic supply, we nna our nationals are excluded from foreign fields, and this in spite of the fact that foreign nations have been permitted to enter and exploit our own oil resources on an equality with American citizens. This country has supplied a larce part 01 ine petroleum consumed bv the world, and yet, with a failing sup ply imminent, it finds that those coun tries have been drawing upon our re sources to supply their needs, and are snowing a tendency to exclude us from their resources. In this way we shall be. transferred from a position of dominance into one of dependence. Close Oil Doors. vve find England and France adopting policies already in part i corporated in laws or regulations that now virtually exclude other than their own nationals from developing oil re sources within their own realms." Manning listed the most promising oil districts outside tho United States as in Mexico, along the Caribbean, in Kcuauor, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Northern Africa. Egypt, Persia. Meso potamia, Palestine, Russia, the East Indies and China. 'When one reviews these Dotential oil fields, he is struck, with the fact that Latin America, Great Britain. France and the Netherlands apparent ly control the main potential sources of supply and particularly those that are of the most concern to the United States," said Manning. "Of course, I do not mean to insinuate that the poli cies of these countries are aimed di rectly at Americans. The policy of each country is to look after its own citizens: hence it is directed against the citizens of all other countries and thus affects Americans." SWING A WOMAN'S IDEA Topeka (factory the Outcome of a Husband's Discomfort jn Porch Swing. A Topeka plant, the Sleep-or-Swing company, now producing fifty swings per day. grew from a woman s idea of comfort, according to Charles A. Neiswender, who invented and pat ented the swing. While watching her husband at tempting to get comfortable in a four foot swing Mrs. Neiswender asked why he did not build a swing that the ends could be let down. He got busy and the result was the swing resem bling the ordinary wooden porch swing, except mat tne ena arms may be inclined at any desired angle and riexioiy supported by a chain ar rangement. William D. Greason. editor of the Miami Republican of Faola. is presi dent of the company: Neiswender, for merly manager of tre William Schick Manufacturing company, is secretary and manager. Guy F. Sexton, for merly with the Smith Truss company, is factory superintendent. The factory is located in the build ing at 306 Kansas avenue. The base ment is used for storing oak timber. The machine room is on the ground floor. Assembling, dipping and ship ping and the offices are located on the second floor. Patents are pending on a new porch swing that will be equipped with con vertible legs. The swing may be taken down in the winter, the legs let down. and installed inside houses as a settee. Plans are being made for construction of another lighter type of swing using a large part of the wood cut out in making the large, heavy porch swing. Sixth District News Notes Items and Reminiscences by An Old Timer With His Ear to the Grass Roots. E. Albaugh drove the mail wagon from Kirwin to Phillipsburg in pio neer days. He said to your corre spondent: "If you will go with me to the county seat, only 1 Smiles away, your ride and hotel expenses won't cost you one cent." It was. thefirat visit a daily newspaper representative had ever made to Phillipsburg. Phil lips county was organized in 1872, be fore there was a building on the town site, tho a town company had been formed and a charter obtained. The 4 5 years your itemizer has been vis iting there the town has seen three court houses erected, the present one being a large, commodious and mod ern stone and brick building, surpass ing most of them, and equal to any in northwest Kansas. On this first trip the town didn't have a railroad outlet nor for several years after. The Central Branch . (now Missouri Pa cific), ran to the south and the B. & M. in Nebraska, north. The town , , ... th. i "T. SZZ "W," iB, Rock Island was pushing west thru the northern tier county seats. On this first visit of the writer the following firms were doing business: R. Rogers, C. H. Leffingwell, G. A. Spaulding & Co.. J V. Close. J. H. Laird, G. W. Toung, D. A. Huling. M. Beckley. Nay Brothers, C. K. Fisli. . A. uunon, H. C. Sprague and E. Albaugh. The names or tne lawyers were: j. Stinson. Bradley & Hickenlooper. Pratt & McElroy and E. F. Woodward. 11 liam Bissell was in the real estate business. Her newspaper was the Herald, started in 187 8 by C. F. Jen kins. The majority of these men have passed on, and only one now lives in Phillipsburg. In later years tne town was the home of N. B. McCormick, who represented the Sixth district in congress. Tour correspondent has seen Phillipsburg grow to a town of about 2.500 population. It is also a nasseneer and freight division. Phil- IIds county has fared politically better I than most of the Sixth district coun ties, having had two congressmen. Democrat' and Republican. Another nominee for congress by the Demo crats was beaten at the polls. The county has had the district judge of the Seventeenth district. The first trip was of interest. Several acquaintances were made whose friendship lasted for many years, and was only separated by death. W. P. Harrington, of Gove City, has recently printed an interesting history of Gove county, which brings the his torical data down to the organization of the county in 1886. The first gov ernment land homesteaded was in 1877. Tour correspondent made his first visit to the county several years after the county seat had been settled, which was in 1886. The towns in the county are Gove City. Buffalo Park, Grainfield Quinter and Grinnell, all railroad towns with the exception of the first named, which is 12 miles from the nearest railroad. In the vote for permanent county seat there were three contestants. Gove City won by a decisive majority. It was laid out in 1885, and at one time it had three newspapers. Grainfield dates her birth n 1879. while Buffalo Park and Grinnell were towns of importance and some building going on. The Gove City people believe the rich coun try tributary to their own will some day be connected by rail, as the Hack berry valley is rich in stock and agri culture. Gove City. Buffalo Park and Grainville made active campaigns for county seat,- and offered inducements for the location. The big rush of. set tlers to the county was in 1886. when the roads were lined with white prairie schooners loaded with emi grants, and on many of them was painted "Bound for Gove county or bust." and every schooner had a fam ily dog. and a coop of chickens tied on behind.- Hundreds of carloads of buf falo bones were shipped from these towns, for which the settlers were paid from $4 to 6 a ton. Gathering these bones and selling them kept the wolf from many a door of Gove county families in pioneer times. Tour correspondent made his first visit to Jaqua. Cheyenne county, in company with Senator P. B. Plumb in the pioneer days of that county. In the rush of immigration for northwest Kansas lands in the years or tne lat ter '80s. one of the fertile spots on tne Republican river lay just east of tne Colorado boundary, in Cheyenne coun ty. It was thickly settled. Sixteen miles south and west of St. Francis the town of Jaqua came into exist ence, with homesteaders upon every quarter section, and vast herds of cat tle grazing on the fertile river bot tom land, and a more picturesque, de lightful cene the eyes of man never beheld. The scene contained the nat ural rugged beauty of the high hills on either side of the river, the banks of the river dotted with groves of nat ural trees, the little town of Jaqua nestled in the quiet, without the hustle and bustle of railroads, or the clatter and din of manufacturing establish ments. Soon there was a general store, blacksmith shop, church and school. and everything that goes to make up delightful country village. But when the hard times of the 90's set in, the homesteaders forsook their habitat and sold or traded off their home steads and belongings and left the country once more to the stock man. The trade at the store dwindled away until a few year" sago the storekeeper sold out. closed the store, cancelled the postoffice, and today there re- ains nothing of the former village CAN DE CURED Free Proof To You All I want it your name and addren so I can wad Too a free trial treatment.

It is situated in the Prairie Dog creek valley, where big crops of alfalfa are raised. Neigh boring lawns had been holding carni vals annually, so the Almenaites wanted to get up something different, and there wasn't any hindrance to holding an alfalfa celebration. The growers of this cereal donated wagon loads of it free, and hauled to town to make displays. An unusual high wind that day scattered it in all direc tions. The people came from towns and country to see Almena's first and only alfafta carnival. There were present, also, candidates for congress and state offices. Atchison has given corn carnivals, and Clyde free water melon, and Almena wanted -to be the first to put on an alfalfa carnival.

They like the place so well they have organized a commercial men's association. -Their motto is: "To make Beloit bigger and better." They believe they will have no trouble to increase their number to more than fifty. It is claimed the traveling men alone spend in the town $50,000 an nually. The first thing they are go ing to try to accomplish is to get more rooming houses. George E. Prehm is chairman and R. J. Fittell, secretary. Gem, a Rock Island town in Thomas county, had a newspaper, the Leader, several years ago. It died a natural death during the "blow" days in that county.

Will the Democrats of the Sixth dis trict try to beat the present Repub lican congressman. Hays B. White, for a second term? Not one of them have whispered loud enough to be heard, that this man or some other fellow wants the job. What's the matter of bringing James H. Egan, of Cheyenne county, to the front? He made the race for the primary nomination two years ago against J. R. Connelly. He has lived in this .county 27 years, and is a prosperous business man in St. Francis. He is strong with the farm ers, having conducted & free employ ment bureau for their benefit for the last 20 years, and donated his time and means to help furnish harvest hands. At one time several hundred hands were needed in Cheyenne coun ty. Egan was on to the job of or ganization, and he succeeded. The men were there and the crops saved. He was a soldier boy in the Spanish American war. besides he is popular with the boys who served in the world war. Mrs. Milt Koons. of Stockton, be lieves rather in raising poultry, and cows than putting in her time in club work and politics. She sold 88 dozens eggs and 74 pounds of butter to one of the stores for J81.80. Many other Rooks county women are engaged in the same work. The Smith Center Journal favors the nomination of ex-Judge J. C. Rup penthal, of Russell, for congress. The article goes on to say: "If he is nomi nated he ought to be elected, and if he should fail to win it will be be cause of no real. lack of qualification, worth and ability on his part." That paper should have said the great mass of the voters of the Sixth dis trict favor the return of the present member. Hays B. White, who is giv ing splendid satisfaction in his first term. J. F.

The Farmer has been stalwart Republican and the News Democratic. This leaves a busy county seat of 2,600 people with only one paper. Hale has recently purchased the Mankato Advocate, a stalw irt Democratic paper. Osborne makes the s'xth county seat in the Sixth con gress'onal district with only or paper in each town. In pioneer times eyery county seat had two or more papers. The consolidation of the Osborne papers makes not less than fifteen papers that have gone out of business since the high cost of living set in, in the Sixth district alone.

Mother's Thumb Print on Same Card Ensures Identity. New Tork, April 24. A system of taking footprints of children has been adopted in the New Tork Nursery and Child's hospital to prevent infants born there from going to the wrong mothers. Its adoption was due to the fact that a soldier's wife who recently gave birth to a baby in that hospital at first denied that the child was hers. The young mother, who had been reading stories of accidental sub stitution of children at hospitals and similar public institutions, declined to nurse the baby. "We brought all the proofs we could muster," explained the super intendent, "but the mother persisted in her hallucination. She became hys terical with brief and fright. Finally, I brought her our records which showed that only a little colored baby and ner own had been born in the hospital that day. That convinced her, but just think of what would have happened to that poor woman if other white babies had been born here on the same day." In order to avoid a similar experi ence the superintendent engaged a finger-print expert to instruct the head nurse in trying the system on tho babies. "We found we couldn't get good prints of their hands," said the official. "Their feet, however, came out beautifully and for greater security the mother is finger-printed also." Very young babies, it was said, may look alike but their feet are quite dissimilar. One child, the superin tendent declared, will have a perfect ly formed miniature pedal extremity. another's will print mostly vague criss cross lines and still another will look like "an egg and five toothpicks." under the present system, which has been in operation nearly six months, the child's foot is inked and stamped on the hospital chart of the mother. Altho he may not resemble any one in the family and tho no one can tell where he got his nose or his eyes or his mouth or the color of his hair, a comparison of the footprint taken at birth, it was said, will tell whose c.ild he is from among the hundreds of infants in this New Tork institution. Chicago Tuesday was the only day John Green could get the right number the first time he called over the phone, he told at the telephone aervlne hearing here. Tuesday was his lucky day he ex plained. BOWELS SO BAD HE TOOK QUART OF MIN ERAL WATER A DAY Mr. Whitesides was in a bad way- Tells how he got over it. "I suffered for years with stomach trouble and constipation., 1 got so I could eat not nine but soft food and had to tako a quart of mineral water a day ior my bowels. I decided to try Milks Emulsion and have used 3 bottles. The results have been won derful. The Soreness left my stom ach, I can eat solid food, my bowels have improved and I feel like a new man. Anyone suffering as I did should lose no time in starting: on Milks Emulsion." M. F. Whitesides, 214 hk S. Sixth St.. Springfield. 111. The more physics you take, the more you'll need. Break away from them. Milks Emulsion costs nothing to try. Milks Emulsion is a pleasant, nutri tive food and a corrective medicine. It restores healthy, natural bowel ac tion, doing1 away with all need of pills and physics. It promotes appetite and quickly puts the digestive organs m shape to assimilate rood. As a builder of flesh and strength, Milks Emulsion is strongly recommended to those whom sickness has weakened. and is & powerful aid in resisting and repairing the effects of wasting dis eases.
