Thin folks Who
Would Be Fat
Increase in Weight Ten Pounds or
A Physician's Advice.
"I'd certainly give most anything to
be able to fat up a few pounds and
stay that way," declares every exces
sively thin man or woman. Such a
result Is not impossible, despite past
failures. Thin people are victims of
mal-nutrition, a condition which pre
vents the fatty elements of food from
being taken up by the blood ss they
are when the powers of nutrition are
normal. Instead of getting into the
blood, all the -fat and flesh producing
elements stay in the Intestines until
they pass from the body as waste.
To correct this condition and to
produce a healthy riarmal, amount of
fat the nutritive processes must be
artificially supplied with the power
which nature has denied them. This
can best be accomplished by eating a
Sargoi tablet with every meal. Sargol
Is a scientific combination of six of
the best strength-giving, fat-producing
elements known to the medical pro
fession. Taken with meals, it mixes
with the food and turns the sugars and
starches Into rich, ripe nourishment
for the tissues and blood and its rSpid
effect is remarkable. Reported gains
of from ten to twenty-five pounds in
a single month are by no means in
frequent. Yet its action is perfectly
natural and absolutely harmless. Sar
gol is sold by Wilkinson ft Co., and
other good druggists everywhere and
every package contains a guarantee of
weight lncreap,-? or money back.
Caution:—While Sargol has pro
duced-remarkable results in the treat
ment of nervous indigestion and gen
eral stomach disorders. It should not,
owing to its remarkable flesh produc
ing effect, be used by those who are
not willing to increase their weight
ten tKimd« or more.

Association Thinks Request Will
Be Denied by the
Keokuk was represented at the,
hearing at Washington recently in
which the railroads asked for a five,
per cent Increase in freight rates. W.
B. Martin of Dubuque, the secretary of
the upper river cities traffic assocla-l
tion, represented the association and'
incidentally Keokuk, which is a mem
Irer. Mr. Martin returned to Iowa on
Mr. Martin said this was a test
case and if the eastern roads won,
then the western roads would make a
similar demand for a raise in rates.
The first attempt to secure a raise
was made in 1910, according to Mr.
Martin, and the Becond one in IMS.
"The second effort was made in
1913 and confined to the eastern ter
ritory as the business interests of
^hat portion of the country would be
least effected by an advance In
freight rates. Only five per cent was
asked to reduce the opposition to a
mlniumm. They thought the fact
that on an advance In the charges of
the eastern railroads, the west would
bear the greater part of the burden
would be overlooked. The east is In
the market for the farm products of
the west, and the price the farmer re
ceives Is that of the eastern market
less the cost of reaching it, conse
quently an advance in that cost
means a decrease in the price the
farmer receives. The west Is also a
market for the products of the east
ern manufacturers on which the west
would pay the freight. It is estimat
ed that the state of Iowa would pay
at least J5,000,000.00 bf the' $50,000,
000.00 the eastern roads would secure
from a five per cent advance."
Mr. Martin believes the roads are
prosperous despite their claims. He
does not believe they will secure the
advance asked for until there is a
change in administrative policies.
