Nothing I Ate
Agreed With Me. fWfJfgù MKS.LENOKA BODKNHAXEK. Mrs. Lenora Bodenhamer, R. F. D. 1» Box 99, Kernersville, N. C„ writes: "I suffered with stomach trouble and Indigestion for some time, and nothing that I ate agreed with me. I was very nervous and experienced a continual feeling of uneasiness and fear. I took medicine from the doctor, but it did me no good. "I found in one of your Peruna books a description of my symptoms. 1 then wrote to Dr. Hartman for advice. He said I had catarrh of the stomach. I took Peruna and Manalin and followed his directions and can now say that I feel as well as I ever did. "I hope that all who are afflicted with the same symptoms will take Peruna, as it has certainly cured me." The above is only one of hundreds who have written similar letters to Dr. Hartman. Just one such case as this entitles Peruna to the candid consider» at ion of everyone similarly afflicted. If this be true of the testimony of one per son what ought to be the testimony of hundreds, yes thousands, of honest, sin cero people. We have in our files a great many other testimonials. Uncle Zeb's Preference. Uncle Zebulon was on a visit to his nephew in the big city and the two had gone to a restaurant for dinner. They had given their order and wera waiting for it to be filled when tha younger man, who had been glancing at a paper that lay on the table, said: said: "By the way, uncle, did you ever have cerebro-spinal meningitis?" "No," replied Uncle Zebulon, after a few moments' mental struggle with the question, "and I don't want any. I'd ruther have fried liver and bacon any day."_ Nats.

But let dyspepsia or indigestion get Bold of one, and all endeavor becomes « burden. "A year ago, after recovering from an operation," writes a Mich, lady, "my stomach and nerves began to give me much trouble. "At times my appetite was vora cious, but when indulged, indigestion followed. Other times I had no appetite whatever. The food I took did not nourish me, and I grew weaker than ever. "I lost interest in everything, and wanted to be alone. I had always had good nerves, but now the merest trifle would upset me and bring on a vio lent headache. Walking across the room was an effort and prescribed ex ercise was out of the question. "I had seen Grape-Nuts advertised, but did not believe what I read, at the time. At last when it seemed as If I were literally starving, I began to «at Grape-Nuts. "I had not been able to work for a year, but now after two months on Grape-Nuts I am eager to be at work again. My stomach gives me no trou ble now, my nerves are steady as ever, and interest in life and ambition bave came back with the return to health." "There's a Reason."

K Dear Bunch: In that crowd of swift drummer boys going New Yorkward in the Mr. Pullman's sleep-wagon yester day, one of the speediest was Buck Jones. Buck's wife and a three-year-old were traveling with him, but he wasn't giving it out through a megaphone. Buck is one of those goose-headed guys who begin to scratch gravel and start in to make a killing every time they see a pretty girl. Across the aisle seat sat two pet canaries from Plainfield, N. J. They were members of the Sou brette Stinging society, and they were en route to the west to join the "Bunch of Birds Burlesque* Company." Their names were Millie and Tillie, and they wore Merry Widow hats, and did a sister act that contained more bad grammar than an East Side pin ochle game. Millie was fully aware that she could back Duse off the map, and Til lie was ready to bet a week's salary that she could make Bernhardt feel like she was out in the storm we had day before yesterday. Slim called them the Roast-Beef Sisters, Rare and Well-Done. In a minute the castors on Buck's neck began to turn. Slim put us wise with a wink, so we lit the fire and began to cook it up. Buck's heart was warming for the birds in the gilded cage. The real Kibo!" said Slim; "it's a plain case of Appomattox; the war is over and they are yours, Buck!" Buck turned a few more volts into his twinkling lamps. Lower your mail-sail, Buck, and drop alongside; you've made the land ing." suggested Burress. Buck began to feel his necktie and play patty-cake with the little bald spot on the top of his head. "Stop the hansom and get out; you're at your corner," said Dave. The Sweet Dreams across the way were giving Buck the glorious eye roll, and he felt like dinner was ready. "Hang up your hat, Buck, and gather the myrtle with Mary!" I chipped in. Then Buck bounced over and be gan to show Millie and Tillie what a handsome brute he was at close quar ters. He sat on the arm of the seat and warmed up. In less than a minute he crowded the information on them that he was a millionaire, who had escaped from Los Angeles, Cal., and he was just go ing to put them both in grand opera, when his three-year-old toddled down the aisle and grabbed him by the coat tail: "Papa! Mamma wants 'oo to det my bottle of milk!" "Stung!" shrieked Slim. "Back to the nursery!" howled Mal colm, and then as Buck crawled away to home and mother we let out a yell my dot my us V-r, if Their Names Were Millie and Tillie that caused the conductor to think the train had struck a Wild West show. During the rest of the trip Buck was nailed to his seat. Every time he tried to use the elas tic in his neck, the wife would burn him with a hard, cold glitter. The Roast-Beef Sisters seemed to be all carved up about something or other. The drummers went back to the shop, and were selling things again when Sledgeheimer fluttered down among us. Maybe you've never met Jakey Sledgeheimer! He travels for a firm in Brooklyn that makes imitation grape-fruit and rubber finan haddie. Jakey is the laziest loosener that over tied a string around a roll. The boys call him putty because he's the next thing to a pane. He's such a stingy loosener that he looks at you with one eye so's not to waste the other. If you ask Sledgeheimer what time it Is he takes off four minutes as his commission for telling you. "Slim," said Sledgeheimer to Arthur Shaw, "do you smoke?" It was a knock-out. In the annals of the road no one could look back to the proud day when Sledgeheimer had coughed. Once, so the legend runs, he gave a porter a nickel, but it was afterward discovered that Sledgeheimer was asleep, and not responsible at the lime, so the porter gave it back. Sledgeheimer tried to collect three cents' interest for the time the porter kept the nickel, and the conductor had to punch his mileage and his nose be fore he'd let go. And now Sledgeheimer bad asked Slim if he smoked! Slim was pale but game. "Sometimes!" he answered. "Do you like a goot seegar?" queried Sledgeheimer. We looked for the engine to hit a cow any minute now. "Sure!" said Slim, weak all over. "Veil," said Sledgeheimer, "here is my brudder-in-law's card. He makes dot Grass Vidow seegar on Sigsth Afenue. Gif him a call und mention my name. He vill be glat to see you, yet." Then Sledgeheimer went away back and sat down. The laugh was on Slim, so he dared us all into the cafe, and after he got busy with the button we all voted in favor of a Monticello highball. After we had dampened our thirsts, Bill Burress showed us how Hammer stein would Americanize "Bingen on the Rhine." Bill called it "Der Em pire," in honor of the Empire State Express, Frank Westerton said. (Eng lish joke—rotten!) This is how Bill spieled it: An Empire of der Big League lay dying, full mit fears; dare vas lack of L Buck Turned a Few More Volte Into His Twinkling Lamps. players' nursing; aber nit of players' tears, but a cop policeman vatched him vile his life's bleed ebbed away, und bent mit pidying glances to hear vot did he; say. Der dying Empire filtered as he took dot copper's liant, und he set: "I nefer more vil see my own, my native lant; took a message und token to some distant friends of mine, for I vas born at Dopeville—at Dopeville down der Line!" Tell my dear, short-sighted broth ers ven dey meet und crowd arount to hear my mournful story, dot brafely helt my grount; dot I foozled my decisions und I googooed at der mob, all howling for my heart's blood (ours is a fearful chob) ; full many kicker, ghastly vite, hard on der bench sat until some players sneaked be hind und soaked me mit a bat; den I qvite svift und suttenly vent into decline, no more vill I see Dopeville— dear Dopeville down der Line! "Tell Pulliam his udder sons must comfort his olt age!—ach, how I luffed to put dis head of mine mitin a cage!

"Tell my brothers in der pitzness not to stood und bolt deir breath und vatch dem awful players celebration ing my death, but to look upon dem proutly, mit a cold und codfish eye, und fine dem to der limit—as 1 dit In days gone by; und if der players fuss demselfs, und mit deir words eggs claim, yust listen at dem brieflessly und chase dem from der game—for der Empire's rank decisionings must be backed as I backed mine for der honor of olt Dopeville—sveet Dope ville down der Line!" His voice chumped to a vlsper; his grasp vas childish veak; his eyes put on a played-out look, his speaker ceased to speak; der copper bent to lift him, but, chee viz! It vas too late! Der Empire of der Big League vas ouid—ould at der plate! Three strikes, py Chimineddy! und he l*at no chance to call like he used to dit do often: "Say! dot last vun vas a ball!"

Yours as usual, (Copyright. ISOS, by G. W. Dillingham Co.) 1 Curious Marriage Custom. An English traveler In northern Ni geria describes an Interesting cus tom connected with marriage which he came across among the Fulani, a tribe of wandering herdsmen who show no trace of negro blood and are supposed to be of Asiatic origin. One might almost suppose that they had advanced ideas about the relatiors of the sexes. Before a man is allowed to marry he has to stand a sound thrashing without witicing. In some parts of Europe this test of fitness for the 'wedded stete might more reason ably be apnlfi d to the woman. One Is reminded of Thomas Edgeworth's friend, who in selecting a bride dropped hot s caling wax on the girl's arm and fired a pistol off near her ear. The General Demand et the Well-Informed of the World has always been for a simple, pleasant and efficient liquid laxative remedy of known value; a laxative which physicians could sanction for family use because its com* ponent parts are known to them to bs wholesome and trvly beneficial in effect, acceptable to the system and gentle, yet prompt, in action. In supplying that demand with its ex cellent combination of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, the California Fij Syrup Co. proceeds along ethical lines and relies on the merits of the laxative for its remark* able success. That is one of many reasons why Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna is given the preference by the Well-Informed. To get its beneficial effects always buy the genuino—manufactured by the Cali fornia Fig Syrup Co., only, and for sale by ail leading druggists. Price fifty cents per bottle.___ A RUNNER-UP.

Richmond, of Northwood, Iowa, says: "For years I was a martyr to kidney trouble, backache, dizzy spells, head aches and a ter rible bearing-down pain. I used one remedy after an other without bene fit. Finally I used a box of Doan's Kidney Pills and the backache ceased.

Eczema La«dù 7 Years—Face Was All Raw—Skin Specialists Failed, But Cuticura Effected Cure. "When my little boy was six weeks old an eruption broke out on his face. I took him to a doctor, but his face kept on getting worse until it got so 1 bad that no one could look at him. His whole face was one crust and must have been very painful. Ho scratched day and night until his face was raw. Then I took him to all tho best specialists in skin diseases but they could not do much for him. Tho eczema got on his arms and legs and we could not get a night's sleep in months. I got a set of Cuticura Reme dies and ho felt relieved the first time I used them. I gave the Cuticura Remedies a good trial and gradually the eczema healed all up. He is now seven years old and I think the trou ble will never return. Mrs. John G. Klumpp, 80 Niagara St., Newark. N.
