Tlie question of establishing the new |

not a question in which the Governor;

presided. With the Senate committee

Former Presiileht Hough, of the Vir

discussion with a general indorsement
6f the bill, emphasizing in particular

this bill with tin- commissioner of

Senator Cannon, of Richmond, di->
reefed the committee's attention to tho j
apparent interference with the use of i
ruin and alcohol in tho manufacture '
of chewing tobacco. He asked that Ihe I
ItiH be amended to protect the tobacco J
manufacturers, and also that provision ,
be made to allow wholesale druggists j
to supply to the retail trade pure grain !
alcohol for medicinal purposes, under
proper regulation. While the modiciiial
use of alcohol is not prohibited by tho
bill, no provision is made by it for tho
handling of this product hy the whole
sale druggists of the State.
Senator Strode, patron, with Senator '
Addison, of tho session's first prohfbl- 1
tion bill, informod tho committee that ?
no effort would ho mado at this hear
ing to press for a consideration of that
measure, but that Senator Addison will

ground that they would place the judge j

XRW YORK, N*. Y.?"One clarion in
enough t? I' ll which people have iron
in their blooti." said Dr. Sauer, ;i spe
cialist of this city, in a receni dis
course. They arc the ones that do and
?laic. The others arc in the weakling
class. Sleepless nights spent worrying
over supposeii ailments, constant dos
ing with patent medicines and narco
tics for nervous weakness, stoinacn,
liver or kidney disease and useless at
teinps to brace tip with strong coff?e
or other stimulants are what keep
them sulTcri tin and vainly longing to
lie strong. Their real trouble is lack
of Iron in the lilood. Without Iron the
blood has no power to change food in
to living tissue and therefore, nothing
you eat. does you any good; you don't
get tho strength out of It. The mo
ment Iron Is supplied the multitude of
dangerous symptoms disappear. 1 have
seen dozons of nervous, rundown peo
ple who were ailing all the time, dou
ble and even triple their strength and
endurance and entirely get rid of
every sisn of dyspepsia, liver and oth
er troubles in from ten to fourteen
days' lime simply by taking iron in
the proper form. And this, after they
had in some cases been doctoring tor
months without any benefit.
If you are not strong or well '.on '
owe It to yourself to make the follow- ;
ini; test: See how long you can w irk
?r how far you can walk witliotu be- i
?oming tired. Next take two live-grain I
tablets nt" ordinary mi.xated iron three
times per day after meals for two)
weeks. Then test your strength again !
and see for yourself how much you ,
have gained. There is nothing like ;
good old Iron to put color in your '
checks and sound, healthy llesli on'
your bones I'.ut you must take iron j
in a form that can bo easily absorbed
and assimilated, like utixa ted iron f
you want it to do you any kooiI. othe -
wise it may prove worst! than useless.'
