visits to the house ’.here the Nor

on which the Norwood woman was
claimed to have been seen at the

Success From War Lesson
ON Armistice Dav 1918, Mr.
William E. Higgins of 2118
—14th Avenue, Minneapolis, got
the injury which taught him the
most valuable lesson of his life. His
battalion doctor gave him the right
advice but he did not follow it at
that time. Three years later a
friend, noticing his run down con
dition, suggested tnat he try Nujol.
That reminded him of what his
army physician had told him, so he
finally decided to give Nujol a trial.
“Since that day” he says, “I’ve
been a different person.”
“Nujol,” he continues, “has been
responsible for what success I have
made of myself in the business
world, it has contributed to my
health, my happiness, to my very
joy of living. Without Nujol I should
have gone on grumbling and com
plaining, muttering at fancied in
justices, overlooking entirely that
this world is just what we make it.
Now I know* what it means to get
up jn the morning smiling and rested
—ready to do my daily work with
zest: what it means to eat with no
thought of the consequences; to live
withm the bound* of good health.”
Our bodies, like any other intri
cate machine, need lubrication.
Nujol is not a medicine; it contains
no drugs; it is tasteless and colorless
3* pure water; it cannot hurt you;
forms no habit. All it does is to
* :an out regularly as clockwork—
■ily, normally—those poisons (we
O Coaat. of Pub. Int
all have them) which make us feel
sick and generally out of sorts.
It is hard to believe that any
thing so simple can do so much for
you—but you can prove it yourself
in a very short time, aa millions of
other people have done: get a bottle
of Nujol at any drug store in its
waled package. It costs but a few
cents and it will make you feel like a
million dollars. Don’t expect results
over night from so simple and nat
ural a treatment; keep it up for a
couple of weeks, and you will have
the answer If you want to feel fine,
start tonight—and remem Ur to in
sist on Nujol!

MAMMOTH TIRE
EXHIBITED HERE

_____
Alexander Tire Company
Shows Huge Goodyear
Product
This afternoon the largest tire in
the world will be on exhibit.on in
Brownsville, being brought here by
Alexander Tire Co.. Goodyear deal
er. who will have the giant easing
at his place of business, 1121-23
Levee street, from 3:45 to 6:00 o'
clock.
The tire was built by the Good
year Tire and Rubber company of
Okron, Ohio and is on a tour of
several states in this section of the
country. It has been in many sec
tions of the United States, and has
been exhibited in Canada, causing
no end of amazement at the Tor
onto Exposition last fall.
The rubber giant, which is 12
feet high and four feet wide, was
built under the combined supervi
sion of the chemical, tire de ;n and
research divisions of the Goodyear's
development department. It takes
about three-quarters of an hour to
inflate the mammoth casing to a
pressure of only three pounds. Its
value is placed conservatively at
$5000 00.
Will there ever be occasion for
the use of a tire the size of the
giant to be seen in our city this
afternoon? A prominent manufac
turer of airplanes, when he saw the
tire on exhibition in his city, stated
that the day was coming when
huge airplanes would require tires
of such dimensions.
The tire is mounted as a trailer ■
to a bus of special design and has a
lead carrying capacity of approx
imately 50.000 pounds. Three
months’ time was required in build
ing it.
