When 1 m all through with vacation
And back to the grind of a job,
I take up my life's occupation
But somehow my heart doesn't
With Joy to be earnestly toiling
And done with the frivol and fluff.
To tell you the truth. 1 am spoiling
For more of vacation-time stuff.
v I'm fond, in a way, of my labor.
I'm really a hard-working oaf,
j>'' But, Just to be frank with you, neighIt's
lots more delightful to loaf;
I'd rather hunt mallards than orders,
Though profits. I know, mnst bo
IT I'd much ra.her widen the borders
Of fun and amusement than trade.
I never was guilty of shirking,
I know It's my task to produce;
But while I'm quite willingly working
I'd greatly prefer to be loose;
For two weeks of blithe recreation
So fill me with vigor and cheer,
iohi i cuuiu go on ffim vacanon
For all of the rest of the year!
There are many people living In
Fairmont who have little knowledge
|H of some of the Industries going on
around them. Many people to whom
?. I have talked have been surprised to
learn that there was a powder mill
bollt or building near Fairmont, and
especially that there was a large
plant hnlldlng for the purpose of makI;
lng powder, nitro-glycerlne, dynamite
and other explosives.
B A few years back some enterprising
Individuals bought the MarredIth
Prickett farm near Hoult and opposite
South Rlvesvllle and started a boom
along the contemplated line of the

large fine park la the woods, called

not turn out to be much of a factor

and the farm of about 150 acres fell
into the hands of Father Boutlou.

Stomach Trouble
Cured By
re No person who has a deranged
lle stomach can enjoy or expect anything
rs but suffering and misery that will
eventually lead to more serious dist0
ease or even death. * The disorders
r(1 of this vital organ are many and vaze
ried. hut all lead to tho weakening of
the general health through its failure
^ to perform tho all-important function
of nourishing the body. Starvation is
the result; the entire system is weakened
and the victim becomes an easyprey
to disease in many froms.
Stomach trouble manifests itself by
unmistakable symptoms that should
be immediately heeded. Its presence
is indicated by lassitude, uncomfortable
sensations in the region of the
stomach, an excess formation of gas,
lack of appetite, bad taste and foul
breath. Sleeplessness and nervousness
generally accompany stomach
trouble. The organ which nature intended
should furnish self-sustaining
nourishment for the body becomes a
generator of poisons, which are taken
up by the blood, resulting in disagreeable
blotches, pimples, boils and
more serious diseases of the blood
and skin.
Nature has provided her own remedies
for the correction of disorders of
the stomach and they are combined
in a most efficient form by Dreca

and aided by careful attention to habits
and diet, all indications of a disnnlarnrl

pear ,the stomach Is aided In its work
ot digesting food, the body is properly
nourished. Dreco has demonstrated
its worth in thousands of cases
ot stomdch trouble, the proof of its
efficiency is shown by the thousands
ot grateful men and women who hare
been relieved and restored to sound
health through this powerful remedy.
