Cascarets ward off all the little ills.
Primitive men did not need Cascarets.
They lived out-doors, ate plenty of fruit, and all of their food
was coarse. /
We modern people are different.
We exerciso too little, eat little fruit; and our food is too
fine, too rich. _
We can't have the bowels cloggeel up antl keep well.
lt means that thc food retained there decays. The decay creates
poisons. .'-. | ?_? poisons are sucked into the blood through thc very

So we must make our choice,
We must live, to un cxtent, like the primitive man, else we must eat
Cascarets.
Cascarets do what the right food would do.what plenty of cxerciscdoes.
The effect is as naturai from one as the other.

Speaker Byrd gavo out tho followlng
statement:
"1 thi n It thnt nppreclublo progress
lias bcen made tbwards the entire so
liitinn ot' the vexed questlons presorit
? ei b ythe wholly abnormal charter of
Ihe lllchiiiiind, Kri-derli-ksburg aiul Po
lotiiac. The flrst blll, presented by
mo, to eompel tlin Rlchmond, Fro'der
loksburg and Potomac io perform its
chartor dutles, was frankly Intended
to eompel tlie Ulchmond, Kn-ilerlcks
biirg aiul Potoriiao to glvo up its pres?
ent charter wlth its requlromehts, re?
strlctlons nnel cxomptlons, and take
ii. charter Whlch tbe general law pro?
vides. Thc uttorncys for the Bien
mohdi Frederlcksburg aiul Potomac
hold tliat section 0, chapter ?>, of tlie
aet concernlng corporations, pago 547,
Pollard's Code, glves the road no power
to oscapo lis limitatlons and restrlc?
tlons by taklng out a new charter, but
that such limitations and rostrlulions
remaln and whnt ls glven up ls the
road's cxemptlon. Of course, if thia
ls a true constructlon of tho act, II.
would not be falr to eompel ihe road
to glvo up Its special exetuptlons un
less It could ut the same timo get rld
of Its speclnl restrlctlons and llmlta
llon. My flrst bill offered to-day
slmply glves any road deslrlng to give
up a speclal charter and of taklng
a charter provlded by general law the
power to elo so. This is onlv falr and
right.
"My second bill givos tho Board
of Sinklng Fund Commlssloners tho
power to exchange stock and clividenel
eibligalions for new stock Issued by
the company under Its new charter.
Thls Is necessary to protect the Inter?
est of tjie State, because the law a.s it
now stands, does not pcrmit the Board
of Slnklng Fund Commlssloners to do
so, The State's Interests nro further
consorved by provldlng thnt no matter
what charge mny be made ln thc
nniount of stock, tho State of Virginia
will stlll have a onc-slxth part. There
Is already a statute whlch provldos
that the b'tate shall have a number of
airectors proportloned to the amount
jl thc State's stock.
"These two bllls, it seems to me,
ire falr to the road and falr to the
State. If the owners of the road ac
ept the advice of thelr nttornevs nnd
tako out a new charter and pay taxes,
.-iijoylng all the prlvlleges and nssum
ng all thc burdens of general law. It
wlll be a most happy conclusion for
