Looli back nt your childhood days,

on cuslor oil, calomel, cathartics.
How ou bated them, how you fought
against taking them.
With our children It's different.
Mothers who cling to tho old form of

If jour child's stomach, liver and
t bowels need cleansing, give only dell

action Is positive, but gentle. Millions

lovo to talio It; that It novcr falls to
clean tho liver and bowels nnd sweet

Less Drinking by College Doys.
Drinking is on tho decrcaso nt Cornell-
winch Is a slgnlilcnnt argument
against it. According to a well known
professor, a graduato himself and a
man who keeps informed on under

quarter of tho drinking among Cornell
iaus now that there was ten years ago.
That is encouraging, but thoro Is still
too much Cornell Sun.
