Tha Turkiah Doctore- Oath.
In Turkey they have a Hlppocra?*
oath, thougb they do not call lt by
that name. It ls glven ln Al-Kulliyeh,
the magazine publlshed by the Syrlan
Proteatant college ln Belrut. To each
of tbe graduates in medlclno the oath
waa admlnistered by the Turkisb head
of the medlcal examlnlug board. We
clte a few of the pledges:
. "That when I am called at the same
tlmo by two dlfferent patlents, the one
rich and the other poor. I will accept
the call of tbe poor without taking
Into con.lderation the money offered
and will do my best for his treatment,
and tbat I will never decllne to an
awer any call, day or nigbt, during the
reign of cotnmon disenses or of nn
epWemlc or of contaglous dlseases.
"That I will not ask extra fees from
the patlenta and will not act against
my consclence by cxaggernting their
slckness ln order to get the calllng
fees.
"That In case of a doubt as to tbe
treatment of a patient I will not leave
his life ln danger through a failure to
consult other doctors on account of
my pride."_
Modern Bookmaking.
A large blndery may have a capaclty
of 10,000 booka a day. The resource6
of son:e of these blnderies are won
derful. There ls an lnstance on record
where a publlshlng house took an or?
der on Monday for a cloth covered
12mo. volume of 350 pages nnd nc
tually shipped 2,000 coples of the book
on the following Wednesday. The
type was set by machinery for the
entire 350 pages before work stopped
Monday night. Electrotype plntes were
made so rapldly that on Ttiosday morn?
ing several prlnting presses were set
ln motion. In the meautlme covcrs
were made ln the blndery, nnd by
Wednesday morning the blnders had
the book In hand. Two thousand vol
umes were completed that dny, and
the edltlon of 10.000 was entirely out
of the way before Saturday night ln

Failed in Health
"My mother died slx years ago," writes Miss Ruth
Ward, of jerseyviile, 111., "and left me to care for six
children. I had never been strong; and this, with the shock
of her death, was too much for me.
"I failed in health. 1 was tired all the time and did
not want to go anywhere, nor care for company. I had
the headache all the time and sueh bearing-down pains.
"A very dear friend advised me to take Cardui, as it
had done her so much good, so I commenced to use it
and now I am in good health."
__? CARDUI
J44
The Woman's Tonic
Women's pains are relievcd or prevented and women's
strength is quickly restored, by Cardui, the woman's tonic.
You yourself know best if you need it, or not.
If you do need it, do not delay, but commence to use
it at once. Every day of delay, only lets you slide further
down the hill.
Don't wait, then, but begin to take Cardui today, for its
use, no matter how prolonged, cannot harm you and will
surely do you good.

When Buying Fuel
The consumer muat alwaya figure on the ac
tual amount of heat and comfort that la got
ten for the money spent.
We believe that our connectiows of long
standing, coupled with the large amount of
fuel that we buy, make it posaible for us to
sell the very highest gradesof Coal and Wood
at pricee that are cheapest to the consumer.
A trial order of our Coal and Wood, or an
opinion from some of our satisfied customers,
will prove that our idea of putting quality
first is correct.
