Where Odell is Looks

Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Odell. of Worthington
Route 1, have received the following
letter from their son, Blaln,
who is- serving "somewhere in i
France," probably not very far from
the scene of the famous St. Mihiel
fight, edging by the description he
gives of the country:
Dear Mother and Father:?Will try
and write a few lines to yon to let yon
know $ am well and in good health.
France is some place. I like it betiter
here than I did in camp in the
states.- It is not near as hot as It was
in the camp I came from over there.
The country Is almost like it is around
home except the fences. I haven't
seen ja farm fenced in with rails yet.
They build a dirt wall and have only
seen one house built of lumber. They
are all built of stone or concrete.

MILT HEALTH TALKS
A' Single Remedy Often Cures Many
Diseases.
BY VALENTINE MOTT, M. D.
Ta ?C wlmnef (imutedMo fft irfrft a list

of the endless diseases that follow lndl
gestlon. Perhaps a whole' column
hi this newspaper would be required
to print them all. Tou eat to keep
alive?to supply blood and flesh and
bone and muscle and brain. It Is easy
to see that if your food Is not digester
and'taken up by the delicate organs
and distributed where it is needed, a
disease of some sort Is sure to come.
Dyspepsia Is a common symptom, and
so are liver complaint lose of flesh,
nervosness, bad memory, dizziness,
sleeplessness,' no appetite. Many
results In cought^ throat diseases,
catarrh, bronchitis and even more
dangerous things. And all these disorders
arise because the food Is not
properly digested In the stomach. It
Is plain even to a child that relief and
cure are to be bad only by setting up
a healthy condition in the stomach.
Dr_ Pierce, of Buffalo,. N. Y-, many
years ago combined a number of vegetable
growths Into a temperance remedy

Medical Discovery. It Is probably
the mostr efficacious discovery ever
made In .medicine, tor the list of people
all over the world who have had
their countless alls overcome by Dr.
