THE EVILS OF CONSTIPATION.
Constipation is one of the main rea
sons why the average human life is
below 40 years. l*eaving waste mate
rial in the body, poisons the system
and blood makes us liable to sick
headaches, biliousness, nervousness
gnd muddy skin. When you note these
symptoms, try Dr. King's New Life
Pills. They give prompt relief, are
mild, non-griping in action, add tone
to your system and clear the complex

Thousands of our boys will be at

so much easier and safer by aiding

lives will be sacrificed.
If the government had the right to
conscript life, it had the right to con
script property. It left the latter to
the owner and if the owner fails to
use it for the service of his country
it ought to be conscripted. The least
