People afflicted with bad breath find quick relief through Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets The pleasant, sugar coated tablets are taken for bad breath by all who know them. Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets act gen tly but firmly on the bowels and liver, stimulating them to natural action, clearing the blood and gently purifying the entire system. They do that which dangerous calomel does without any of the bad after effects. AU the benefits of nasty, sickening, griping cathartics are derived from Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets without grip ing, pain or any disagreeable effects. Dr. F. M. Edwards discovered the formula after seventeen yeare of prac 'tiee amonsr natients afflicted with bowel and liver complaint with the attendant ; bad breath.

Educational Bulletin No. 3. The Business of the Corby Compressed Yeast Company, and Tts Industrial Magnitude The Corby Yeast Company gives employment to a large force of trained bacteriolo . gists, 'chemists, etc., as well as to an army of clerical and mechanical employes. Its pay roll reaches $225,000 a year. During 1916 there were handled on its tracts 1,6$5 full carloads of freight, not including the enormous number of partial car shipments; and over 4,823,000 pounds of expressage were forwarded to its baker customers throughout the United States and Canada. In the operation of the plant 2,316 tons of coal were required. From these figures can be seen the importance of this yeast industry from the com mercial standpoint; and in the shipments shown above will readily appear the widespread and magnitude of the demand for Corby Yeast, recognized a3 a real necessity by those bakers who put the proper estimate on quality; and appreciate the equitable price which did not prevail while the yeast business was held virtually under monopolistic control. To requirethe closing of theCorby Yeast plant will automatically re-establish" this monopoly at a tremendous cost' to the bakers everywhere. It must be remembered that the making of yeast produces alcohol as a by-product. But the alcohol derived from the making of Corby Yeast has only been permitted fpr use in the arts, sciences and manufactures. How important the use in science alone is most inter esting and illuminating. . The following letter, from no less a distinguished authority than Dr. Carl L. Alsberg, chief chemist of the United States government, appearing in the Congressional Record of December 18th, 1916, officially emphasizes the necessity of alcohol in prosecution of chem ical and other scientific work in laboratories; and that its elimination would mean the) practical suspension of most of the important research work in which his department is engaged v vital in its application to every-day life. , . tj DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE. J BUREAU OP CHEMISTRY, . ' Washington, D. G, December 16, 1916. ' Mi HON. J. H. GALLINGER, . f M . , United States Senate. ' MY DEAR SENATOR GALLINGER: Replying to yonr letter of DccembCT 14, in- - .- - quiring whether the Government requires pure alcohol for use in scientific research and. , investigation in its laboratories, and what effect it would hare upon sack laboratories ' should they be prevented by law from securing pure alcohol, I beg to say that the I Bureau of Chemistry does require pure alcohol for use in scientific research. If. the Bureau of Chemistry were not permitted to use pure alcohol in its scientific research : ' arid in its analytical work in connection with the enforcement of the food and drugs act, '' much of the work now under way would be brought to a standstill. Alcohol is so . . ; largely used by chemists that it forms an essential reagent in the preparation of many . substances and in the making of many analyses. If it were impossible to use it, and it would be necessary to endeavor to devise new methods of preparation and new- methods of analyses for certain methods of preparation, long studies, possibly lasting " years, would be required in order to find a substitute. For other methods of preparing ' certain substances it may-be impossible to find a substitute , In the place of analytical methods in which alcohol is used, entirely new methods - , , would have to be devised, and to do so .would require the work of many men extending over a long period. In certain cases it is altogether probable that no satisfactory rab . , stltute could be found. In short, to deprive the Bureau of Chemistry of the possibility y-'- of using pure alcohol in its work would hamper a great part of the work required by ':"" law to be done, and would make some, if indeed not all, of it permanently impossible. 1 i The obstacles thus imposed upon the bureau might.to some degree be overcome through ' years of investigation, but even then only partially. . , . .. !X ...j. ... Very truly, yours, C. L. ALSBERG, Chief," - - " Without alcohol, every laboratory chemical, bacteriologic, physical, engineering, medical, etc. would be helpless. Every educational institution would be compelled to give up its scientific course; or so curtail its scope as to be practically worthless. ' It would be impossible to completely list the purely scientific and laboratory prepar ations which demand the use of alcohol; but from the great German work Bluecjier's "Auskunftsbuch fuer die Chemische Industrie," Volume 9, these conspicuous examples are quoted: Acetal, Acetaldehyde, Acetanflid, Acetosal, , Acetone salfite, Acetophenone, Lead acetate (sugar of lead), and all other acetates, Acetyl chloride, Acetic add, ( Medicinal mes) Aspirin Adrenalin (synthetic), Aldol, Alkaloids, Arsacetin, Atoxyl, Cellulose acetate, Camphor monobromate Celluloid, Chloralamid, ChIoretone, Tetrachloerthane and other similar solvents, Acetic anhydride, Dyes, Lacqaers, Fruit ethers (flavoring extracts, synthetic), Fulminate of mercury, Glycholic acid, Solidified alcohol, for burning, Hexamethy Ientetramin, Indigo, synthetic, CacodyI compounds, Cantharadin, Casein (pure)j Rubber mdustry, especial ly in the form of de rivatives Collodion, Milk sugar, Ethereal oils, Pepn, Photographic chemicals, etc. Plastic masses, Smokeless powders, Artificial silks, Soaps, Tobacco preparation, Tannins, v: Everv authority recognizes ii alcohol certain specific properties which make it abso lutely indispensable for scientific, work; in that it possesses a combination offcproperties un its mam uses in tne laooratory are iouna unaer xnese nve known in any other substance. heads: A.

R. As a nurifvinz aeent: there are a vast number or cnemicai suDsiances which must be purified in the course of laboratory work, and a majority of these . are purified by treatment with alcohol or with some of its derivatives, such as :ther, chloroform, acetic acid, etc. C. As a precipitant; in both analytic work, and in the preparation of new compounds,, as well as in the purification and study of known products, alcohol comes into constant use to remove from solution in other solvents the compounds ' being investigated. D. As a drying agent; especially in physiologic chemistry, alcohol, and its derivative, ether, are used for the removal of water from substances to be studied in their dry state, and which would be injured by heating to dry. E. As a disinfectant and antiseptic; its use for this purpose is extensive and so obvious as to require no comment. The Corby Plant is strictly a yeast manufactory; and every gallon of the alcohol which its legally prescribed process pro duces has by strict understanding been sold and used ONLY in these important industries.
