It's easy enough to be pleasant
While your stomach is working fine, But the stomach worth while In the stomach with Bile And Digestive Juices to burn. This is a long way after "1511a," and though the verse is bad, it tells the story of digestion well. The process of maturing food for conversion into bodj strength and energy was never well understood until recently. We had al together false ideas we believed that the stomach churned the food, and in order to bo healthy it had to be kept as busy as the chief stoker on the Steam boat Hades. There's nothing in that theory. What we require from the stomach, in order to be robust, bright and pleasant, aud keep smiling, is to have a plenty of digestive juice flow into tho food and get mixed up with it. That's what we need—and that's what •we cau achieve. Go to Bell & Robinson and tell them to fix you up the Prosene Prescription: One ounoe of Prosene Compound Com pound Tincture of Cinchona, one ounce Sherry Wine, half a pint. To be taken a teaspoonful before meals and at bed time. Try this for a week on the advice of the Cooper Pharmacal Company of Chicago, who are the originators of this advertised theory and remedy, and you'll find you'll have an appetite like hippo and digest like a horse. You 11 be free from stomach Headache, bilious ness and constipation. If our first- ambitions were the ones •we realized, most of us would be beat ing the snare drum in the village band. If you haven the time to exercise regularly, Doan Regulates will pre vent constipation. They induce a mild, easy, healthtul action of the bowels without griping. Ask your druggist for them. 25c.

The state sanatorium for the treat ment of incipient cases of tuberculosis has now been in operation si* months, having been opened for the reception of patients since February 1, 1908. The rapidity with which the beds are being filled shows olearly the need of such an institutiou. More than this, the num ber of applicants that have been re fused admittance as not coming under the classification "incipient," points to the vital importance of establishing hospitals for the care of advanced cases. Up to the first of .luly 105 cases had been received for treatment, while for the same period of time over 200 were turned away. The aim of tho sanatorium is three fold- First, it takes the uninstructed friends to whom he may unwittingly be a menace and place him in a group of people, afflicted in a like manner, who are being disciplined and taught the fundamental principles of the "open air" treatment. Second, it gives the poor tuberculosis patient the opportun ity of receiving proper care and treat ment. Third, it aims to cure the pa tient, thus giving back to the state a life restored to its working capacity The person suffering from tuberculosis who is unaware that tho disease hat fastened itself upon him, may be throw ing from his lungs, quite unsuspecting ly, millions of "death-dealing" germs. l*f he is fortunate enough to learn the nature of his malady before it has be come advanced, he has the opportunity of retiring to the sanatorium with reasonable hope of cure, thus sparing himself years of suffering and invalid ism, and better still, lessening the dan ger of infection to those about him. In this sojourn at the sanatorium he learns facts concerning his disease, im portant to him as an individual and as one of a community. Most deeply and persistently impressed upon his mind are the now well known truths—that tuberculosis is caused by a specific germ, and that it is transmitted by the dried sputum, carried about in the dust, of those afflicted with the disease. He learns that in such an institution dan ger is reduced to a minimum by the burning of sputum in its moist and harmless state and sterilizing any and everything suspected of containing tuberculosis matter. Of almost equal importance with a knowledge of the disease is the personal factor "courage" in the struggle to overcome the disease. The desire for the comforts of life and all outside interests must be secondary if he would effect a cure. It requires a "mind fixed on its set purpose" and un faltering zeal to live out of doors night and day with tho thermometer hovering about zero, to take milk and eggs abundance, especially where there is a natural antipathy to them, and to rest, rest, rest! It would be much easier, more pleasant and convenient to take medicine and let it do the work. The germ thrives and multiplies in damp, vitiated air, hence the need for maximum of pure, dry air, next the nourishing food and the rest increase the resistenco in the body to the poi sons thrown into the system. After six or eight months at the sanatorium, with the disease apparently arrested, he returns home no longer a menace, rather a missionary bearing the gospel of sunshine, fresh air and cleanliness and the blessed tidings of hope to the consumptive. With this institution now in operation chance of recovery is offered to the poor consumptive. Formerly, even though the disease was discovered in its early stage, no alternative was open to such an one. He worked until death with bony finger beckoned him to re pose. Where means are lacking they are not required, and is given every care and attention that will help him on the road to recovery. The fact that this disease lays hold of men and women in their prime, in a great majority of cases, just when the earning capacity is the greatest, means an immense financial loss to the state, So that, from a material point of view, the sanatorium is an investment, whose dividend may be represented by aud women restored to wage earning power. In conclusion then the State Sanator mm benefits the individual, the public and the state itself, and time only is neoessarv to demonstrate the fact that it is an effective weapon in the crusade against tuberculosis. EVER WATCHFUL A Little Care Will Save Many Leon Readers Future Trouble. Watch the kidney secretions. See that they have the amber hue of health The discharges not excessive frequent Contain no "brick-dust like" sedi ment. ~x for Doan'a Kidney Pills will do this you. They watch the kidneys and cure thein when they're siek. William Asbach, Davis City, la., says "I was afflicted with kidney trouble for over two years. My kidneys were in a much disordered condition, the aecre tions being too free in action and caus ing me to rise many times during the night. When allowed to stand they deposited a dark sediment. I had severe pains in the small of my back which were worse when stooping or lifting, also pains in my loins which were so severe during the night that was unable to rest but little. In the morning 1 was always lame and worn out. 1 suffered from severe headaches, and at times was troubled with dizzy spells which caused blurring of the eye sight. When Doan's Kidney Pills were brought to my attention I started us ing them according to directions. They went at once to the seat of my com plaint and helped me. Im now able to sleep all night where formerly I was unable to rest more than an hour or two at a time. I heartily recommend Doan's Kidney Pills to all kidney suf ferers."

The circus seems to be the popular topic of conversation these days and many are making arrangements to visit Creston when Riogling Brothers exhibit there on Friday, Sept. 4th. The The Ringing Brothers are celebrating this season the twenty-fifth jubilee year of their splendid enterprise by giving the public a circus entertain ment that exceeds anything ever done in the past in the way of amusements. They have searched the world for novel ty, they have imported at great cost the most wonderful European and Asiatic acts, they have had builded in foreign studios and shops the finest outfit ever used by a circus, and they have so en larged their already gigantic show that twelve acres of ground are now requir ed for their many tents. The circus this year numbers 1,280 men, women and children, 650 horses, 30 camels, 40 elephants, 110 cages of ani mals, 85 double-length railroad cars and 300 parade vehicles. The main tent is is the largest ever built. The great program is given in three rings, on two stages, in a vast hippodrome track and in the spacious dome. There are 375 performers, 800 of whom are making their first tour of America under the management of the Ringling Brothers. In addition to the dangerous and thrilling automobile double somersault act, presented by Miss La Belle Roche, of France, here are a few other remark able features never before witnessed in America: The Great Mirza Golem fam ily, from the court of the Shah of Persia the man from France who walks up and down stairs on his head Riccobodo and his "Good-Night" horse, which wears pants, coat and boots, from Russia the pig that skips the rope and shoots the chutes the ape that stands on its head the twenty-camel team in the parade, and the remarkable zebra tamden-riding act. Deafness Cannot be Cured by locsil applications, as they cannot reach the dis eaKed portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian tube. When this tnbe is inflamed vou have a rumbling- sound or im perfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, deaf oess is the result and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condi tion, hearing will be destroyed forever nine cases out of ten are cauajd by catarrh, which is nothing but an intlamed condition of the mucous surfaces.

An Adventurous Correspondent Few newspapers in the United States are able to command the services of as brilliant a corps of correspondents as The Chicago Record-Herald. Its choice of Walter Wellman to represent it at Washington is a good illustration of its wise policy of getting the best there is to be had. Mr. Wellmaa has won a national reputation as a magnetic and resourceful news writer. And now he is preparing to clinch his repu tation for originality and daring by trying to reach the north pole in an air ship. Whatever my be the results of Mr. Wellman's daring attempt to reach the pole Hthis summer in an airship and •end the news of the voyage at once to The Record-Herald by wireless tele graphy, the Wellman-Record-Herald ex pedition is sure to he conducted by Mr. Wellman with the same cool courage and whole-souled enthusiasm that have made him an ideal newspaper corre spondent. Mr. Wellman was born in Mentor, Ohio, in 1858. At 14 he began his news paper experience, establishing at that age a weekly paper in the little town of Sutton, Neb. In 1884 he became the Washington correspondent of the Chi cago Herald, for which paper he visited the West Indies in 1892 and located the landing place of Columbus, marking the spot with a huge stone monument. In 1894 he made his first dash for the pole, reaching the latitude of 81 degrees northeast of Spitzborgen. In 1898 he tried the same fascinating quest again, penetrating as far as Franz Josef Land. On both trips he had wonderrul success in discovering new islands and secur ing new scientific data which have been of great value to the American Geo graphical Society. His voluminous writings for scientific periodicals and popular magazines have shown the same incisive thought and keen insight that have marked his journalistic work, Most disfiguring skin eruptions, scrofula, pimples, rashes, etc., are due to impure blood.
