INACTIVITY CAUSES CONSTIPATION
Lack of exercise in the winter is
a frequent cause of constipation.'
You feel heavy, dull and listless,
5 our complexion is sallow and pimp
ly, and energy at low ebb. Clean
up the condition at once with Dr.
King's New Life Pills, a mild laxa
tive that relieves the congested in
stincts , without griping. A dose
before retiring will assure you a
full and easy movement in the
morning, 25c. at your Druggist. 2
A Whitewash That V/on't Rub
Whitewash is so commonly used
around the farm that il is advisable
to know just how to make it prop
erly. The following recipe for a
cement whitewash is made use of by
owners of cold storage warehouses
who desire a snowy white A'ash that
dries quickly, adheres strongly to
cement, brick or wood, and does
not rub off on the clothes.
Slake one-half bushel of lime with
boiling water, adding the water
slowly and stirring constantly until
a thin paste results. A 5-l'oot piece
of throe-fourths inch iron pipe
makes a good rod for stirring. The
lime will be lumpy if the water is
added freely and the mass is not
properly stirred. Add one-half peck
uf salt to the lime paste; stir thor
oughly; add water to bring the
whitewash to the proper connisteu
cy. Throw a good handful of
Portland cement in each pail of
whitewash, and a teaspoonful of ul
tramarine blue. Add the cement
and the blue powder jus. before the
wash is to be used and stir in well,
otherwise the whitewash will he
streaked. The ce meut makes the
whitewash adhere strongly to any
surface, and the bluing counteracts
the grayish color of the cement and
results in a wnite appearance.

relief Tanlac had given so many
people and lie bought it for me. I

During the first two weeks that I

me wonderfully in every way and

anything I care to and my food
is digested properly. I do not
