New Medicine He Has No
More Aches or Pains.
It is certain that the greatest thing j
in all this world is health. Without
it a man can scarcely do anything
that is worth doing; he can accom
plish little that is worth accomplish
ing. Attention to health then should
take preference over every other ob
ject. That which is necessary to se
cure it should receive consideration in
preference to anything else.
For instance, the preparation. "Plant
Juice," the new herbal stomach rem- i
edy. which is gaining such a following
in the City of Richmond, where grate
ful people are testifying to the great j
benefit they have received through the
use of this preparation and are recom
mending it to their friends who are
suffering from stomach, liver and kid
Recently, Mrs. Louie H. Bolton, a
popular Richmond lady who resides at
No. 110 West Main Street, and has a
host of friends, stated how her hus
band was relieved by Plant Juice, as
I am glad to give this testimonial
for Plant Juice as I can't say too much
for it. My husband has suffered with
his stomach for a long time and ho
could not keep the lightest kind of
food in his stomach; he could not eat
nj food on account of the severe puin
he suffered afterwards he got very
nervous and restless and all run down
and he could not get any sleep at
night, often he would have severe
headaches. We had heard a great deal '
nhout Plant Juice and 1 insisted that
he would try it He had little faith i
in it as he had tried so many different
medicines and treatments without any !
benefit whatever. Finally, however,
he got a bottle and now he has taken
ij for several weeks and Is feeling th~
best he has in years. He has no more
pains or aches, sleeps well and is able
to eat everything without the slight
est distress afterwards. Wc are both
iflad to recommend It to others on ac
count of the great benefit he received -

This be in p. as it wrc, a test case
under the operation of the workmen's
compensation act. the opinion of Judge
Crump is regarded as being peculiarly
significant to the 8.000 employers and
the JOn.oOO employees of the State of
Derision of .Indue.
"I think the holding of the commis
sion." says Judge Crump in his de
cision. handed down yesterday, "that
the case made by liray comes within
the purview of the provisions of sec
tion 20 of the workmen's compensation
act is correct and should be affirmed.
Section 20 provides, in effect, that if a
person has contracted to perform any [
work and lie makes an independent
contract with another person for the
performance of the "work in whole or
in part, still any one employed in th<- j
work, although engaged by the second '
or independent contractor, is entitled
to claim the compensation allowed by
the act from the original contractor.
"Whatever may have been the inten
tion of the act," Judge Crump goes on
to state, "the result of its language is
to abrogate the technical doctrine of
independent contractor, as understood
| in ttie law of master and servant, in
the application of the provlstonrut- tbft
act to casii's arising under It. ..>?
I "It l."? also to bo noted that thi? ???
i tlon 2(> allows the original contractor,
I who is nuidi' to pay compensation to *n
i employee of ar. Independent or Inter
mediate contractor, liable therefdr: and
i that it also allows the workman to de
mand tho statutory compensation' di
rect from the intermediate contractor;
and finally, that it is provided that tho
principal contractor, when sued ?lon?

contractor, shall have tho right ta. call
