A little sun, a little rain,
A soft wind blowing from the west,
And woods and fields are sweet again.
And warmth within the mountain's
So simple is the earth we tread.
So quick with love and life her
Ten thousand years have dawned and
And still her magic Is the same.
A little love, a little trust,
A soft impulse, a sudden dream—
And life as dry as desert dust
Is fresher than a mountain stream.
Bo simple is the heart of man,
So ready for new hope and joy
Ten thousand years since it began
Have left it younger than a boy.

In every section and in every branch
of trade activity in production and
distribution now prevails. It is not
able that in the principal trades, and
especially in iron and steel, actual
buoyancy appears, and the demand is
so keen that it tests the capacity of
productive and transporting facilities.
Shortage of cars and labor, and in
some cases even shortage of plant
capacity, are now the most embar
rassing problems confronting business
men, and besides these difficulties the
controversies and issues, which are
the offspring of depression, and which
not long ago seemed so ominous, are
now viewed with diminishing concern.

The probable value of this form of
prophylaxis In time of war is strik
ingly shown by the reBUlts of its use
in the maneuver camps in Texas In
the spring of 1911. On the recom

orders were issued to vaccinate all
who had not typhoid or who had not
already been immunized against it,
on arrival. No difficulty was encoun
tered In the administration of tne
vaccine. Two physicians, assisted by
a few sanitary soldiers, were able to
vaocinate 200 or more per hour. The
troops remained in camp until the
middle of July, 1911, and during thai
time there occurred among the troops

for troops In the field in March for
ajl recruits in June, and on Septem
ber 30, 1911, it was made obligatory
for the entire army. During this year
approximately 80,000 were immun
ized. The vaccination of the army
was practically completed in the
early part of 1912, since which time
recruits and re-enlisted men only
have been vaccinated.
The advance in camp sanitation ana
especially the value of protective i'
noculation against typhoid is seen in
the contrast of records of the camp
in question with that of the camp at
Jacksonville, Florida in 1898. In the
the latter none.
During the past year compulsory
vaccination against typhoid has been
adopted in the navy, and their entire
personnel has been vaccinated and as
a result the disease has practically
disappeared from their service. At

Your Stomach Will Digest Any Kind

We are prone to fall into the error
of singling out some article of food
and soundly berating the fiend who

grows with some people till almost ill
food is put on the blacklist. This is
all wrong. What is required is a lit

on which scientific students for many
years have set their seal of approval
because they have become absolute
facts. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets for
all stomach disorders are recognized
they have a fine record they are rat
ed reliable, dependable and worthy of
confidence just as the president of a
big bank puts his O. K, on a deposi

what you want, whatever you like,
knowing well that should indigestion,
sour risings, gas formations, fermen
tations or any other stomach distress
arise, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets in a
few moments will put you right.
Coated tongue, bad breath, heart
burn, belching, flatulency, bloat—an
the symptoms of digestive troubles
disappear quickly when these tablets
are used. Tbey are not a cure for
anything but dyspepsia and kindred
complaints. But they have brought
relief to more sufferers from digestive
diseases than all the patent medicines

The siomach does the heaviest
work of any of the bodily organs, yet
it's the one we treat with the least
regard. We eat too much of the
wrong kind of food at any time. The
patient stomach stands such treat
