Tb be Sick?
Let's forget about all the disagreeable
and painful part of sickness, and ask our
selves if it PAYS to be sick
Perhaps you are only HALF sick
maybe you are dragging yourself around,
with a "dead tired" feeling. Perhaps you
wake up in the morning with a heavily
coated tongue, a bad taste in your mouth,
and hardly any appetite. Quite likely
you are bilious. Maybe you have dull
aches and pains, CONSTIPATION, head
aches. You go about your daily duties. You
tell yourself you will feel better to-morrow
but when to-morrow comes you feel just
about the same. You try this and that
remedy, without getting real relief. Or
if you get some relief, it doesn't LAST!
You soon feel just as bad as you did before.
DOES IT PAY to let yourself stay in
this half-sick condition? Think of all the
ENJOYMENT of life you are missing!
You can't enjoy your food, or the society
of your family and friends. You cant
enjoy anything as you should, because
your senses are dulled and your brain
oppressed by the effects of a SLUGGISH

1. Load lightly and drive slow
2. . Stop in the shade if possible.
3. Water your horses as often

4. When he comes in after
work, sponge off the harness
marks and sweat, his eyes, his
hose and mouth and the dock.
Wash his feet but not his legs.
5. If the thermometer is 75 de-
grees or nigner, wipe mm an
over with a damp sponge. Do
not turn the hose on him.

Lovers Reunited by War.
Tobias Boskuhl, an officer of
an interned German vessel lying
at New Orleans, has just mar
ried Miss Albertine Dehner, a
girl of Steelton, Pa., for whom
he had been searching 14 years.
Voskuhl met the girl of his
dreams when she was 18 and he
was a petty officer on a liner ply
ing between Germany and the
United States. The girl, whose
mother had died, was on the way
to Steelton to live with her un
cle, Otto Dehner, a brewer.
The boy and girl became en
gaged, but the stern old German
uncle refused to countenance the
match and wheu his niece insist
ed that she would wed Voskuhl,
he sent her to other relatives in
Germany and refused to give the
young officer her address.
Believing Miss Dehner's love
affair dead, the uncle sent for
her again and she has been vi
ing with him for ten years. Re
cently she saw her lover's name

A strong demand has arisen in
the press and among the public
of Italy for cancellation of the
agreement between 'Italy and
Germany, whereby the rights of
citizens of each country within
the other's domain were to be
respected. Violation of the
agreement by the Germans is al
leged in Rome. The situation is
such that the relations between
the two nations have reached a
greater tension than at any time
since the war begun.
No state of war exists be
tween Germany and Italy and
the agreement negotiated by
Prince Von Buelow still is in
force. Italy, according to offi
cial opinion, has faithfully ob
served the agreement, refrain
ing from touching German prop
erty and freely all owing subjects
of the German empire to reside
On the other hand, Germany
is accused, unofficially, of violat
ing the agreement in depriving
Italians in Germany of their lib
erty of action, preventing Ital
ians of military age residing in
Belgium from leaving the coun
try, suspending payments due
Italians and treating them as
subjects of a hostile power. Ac
cordingly a demand is now being
voiced for abrogation of the
Short Stops.

cestors because he has nothing

a bald head as an official badge
of wisdom.
You can soon fill your purse
by adding a little more than you
take out.
