Movement to Bismarck's Progress
While the contract held by Mr.
Lauritzen calls for the completion of
the building by September 1, 1913,
there is a possibility that the work
may be finished at an earlier date.
This depends largely upon the avail
ability of securing the necessary
materials. So soon as the excavation
work is completed, work of putting
in the foundation will be started and
it is Mr. Palm's belief that the roof
will be on the splendid structure be
fore cold weather sets in in the fall.
During the winter and next spring
and summer workmen will complete
the interior of the building. The
edifice will cost, when completed
approximately $150,000. It will be the
headquarters of all federal officers
who are located at the state capital.
The imposing structure will stand as
a monument to the progress that is
being hame each year by Bismarck,
Queen City of the vast Missouri Sl6pe.

One of the most surprising things
in the world to druggists is that so
many people endure unnecessary suf
fering and trouble.
Every day they hear people say "I
have been feeling so weak and miser
able for the last few months that I
finally decided to come and ask you
what to do for it."
For instance, Miss Zulah Teager.
den of Connellsville, Pa., says in a
letter: "For years I had been in bad
health owing to run-down system and
general weakness. I had no appetite,
was tired out and had no strength.
"Hearing so much about Vlnol I
decided to try it and I find It the
greatest of all remedies. It has built
up my strength, restored my appetite
and made me as well as ever. I might
just as well have had this benefit
years ago if I had taken Vlnol then."
Now if you are weak and in poor
health, don't wait another day, but
let Vinol, our delicious cod liver and
remedy without oil, make you
strong. We guarantee It—yon get
your money back If not satisfied.
