ABOUT THAT TALK OF BURNING LIBERTY BONDS. An Eastern college president no one else would be such an ass has started a movement to burn up all the Liberty bonds in the country for the purpose he says of wiping out the National debt through this heroic sacrifice on the part of a large, thrifty and patriotic portion of the public. The college president offers to start the bonfire 'with such liberty bonds as he has on hand himself. This sort of advice, possibly suggested by a com mittee of multi-millionaires who are tired cf paying income taxes, will find few willing ears to heed it. A good way to improve the country and to in sure its permanancy and happiness would be to find some legal way of burning up a few thousand colleges. The Nation is overrun with them to its detriment. They are robbing the farms and the work . shops, the trades and the commercial world of necessary material and are turning out thousands of over educated per sons with no practical knowledge at an age when it is too late for them to start doing something useful. THE HIGHEST MEDICAL AUTHORI TIES AGREE. All eminent physicians agree with Drs. Hare, Caspari and Rusby who say in their excellent book, "The National Standard Dispensary": "Cascara sa- grada is considered to be the ; best drug we have for habitual constipa tion. It not only increases the secre tions of the gastro-intestinal canal, but because of its bitterness acts as a tonic, improves the appetite and digestion, and prevents the constipa tion which usually follows the use of similar drugs." Cascara (the bark of the California buckthorn) is the prin cipal ingredient of Triner's American Elixir of Bitter Wine. The other in gredients make Triner's remedy still more perfect and that explains suffi ciently why Triner's American Elixir of Bitter Wine enjoys the renown of being the best remedy for all stomach disorders. Your dealer from whom you buy medicines has also Triner's An gelica Bitter Tonic, Triner's Cough Sedative, Triner's Liniment, and other Triner's highly dependable remedies in stock.
