Is all that saved a flock of chickens be 1
longing to Thomas i'rist. 109!' l'ieilmont
road, from flic fate that usually
befalls the turkey about this time of
the year. Mr. Frist is what you might
call a red hot Democrat, and an en- J
thusiastic admirer of Woodrow Wilson.
He planned to kill his chickens I
hecnuse he thmieht their nnlitica! !
views did not coincide with his.
On tiie morning of election day a !
Republican neighbor of Mr. Frist en
graved the name "Hughes" on the
shell of an egg by using lard and '
vinegar and deposited it m a nest in j
the lalter's chicken yard.
Late in the afternoon the egg was
taken from the nest by a member of
the family and the significant lettering
on the shell was detected and
shown to Mr. Frist.
Being confident of the re-election
of Mr. Wilson. Mr. Frist did not regard
the lettering as significant, but
that night, when the election returns
began to come in and k was announced
that Hughes had carried New
York and the east and probably had
been elected, he decided to kill the
chickens and oner them for sale in
his grocery store.
When th.- grocer was taking the
liens to the block the next morning
he was approached by a friend who
told him that the tide had turned and
that Wilson had been re-elected.
"That's all that saved these
chickens." remarked Mr. Frist as he
released the birds.

DR. CALDWELL'S SYRUT* PEPSIN
SHOULD HAVE A PLACE IN
EVERY HOME.
Constipation, or inaction of the howels.
a condition that nearly every one
experiences with more or less frequcn-'
cy, is the direct cause of much disease.
When the bowels become Hogged
with refuse from the stomach,
foul gases and poisons arc generated.!
and unless the congestion is quickly
relieved the system becomes weaken-!
ed and most susceptible to attack. i
Various remedies to relieve constipation
arc prescribed, but many of
these contain cathartic or purgative!
agents that, are harsh and violent In!
etr action and shock to the system, j
The most effective remedy Is the combination
of simple laxative herbs with
pepsin tliat is sold in drug stores under
the name of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup:

splendid laxative, easy to take and'
mild, yet positive in its action, and;
that it should be in every household i
for use when needed.
