A FAMILY MEDICINE h Her Mother’s Home, Says This Georgia Lady, Regarding Black- Draught. Relief From Head ache, Malaria, Chills, Etc. Ringgold, Ga. — Mrs. Chas. Gaston, of this place, writes: *T am a user of Thedford’s Black-Draught; in fact, It was one of our family medicines. Also In my mother’s home, when I was a child. When any of ns child ren complained of headache, usually caused by constipation, she gave us a dose of Black-Draught, which would rectify the trouble. Often In the Spring, we would have malaria and chills, or troubles of this kind, wo would take Black-Draught pretty reg ular until the liver acted well, and we would soon be up and around again. We would not he without it, for it certainly haa saved us lots of doctor bills. Just a dose of Black- Draught when not so well saves a lot of days In bed.” Thedford’s Black-Draught has been fn use fop many years In the treat ment of stomach, liver and bowel troubles, and the popularity which It now enjoys is proof of its merit. If your liver is not doing its duty, you wilL suffer from such disagree able symptoms as headache, bilious ness, constipation, indigestion, etc., and unless something is done, serious trouble may result Thedford’s Black-Draught has been found a valuable remedy for these troubles. It is purely vegetable, and acts in a prompt and natural way, regulating the liver to its proper functions and cleansing the bowels of impurities. Try it. Insist on Thed lord’s, the original and genuine. B7i ************************* THE BUND AND THE MUTILATED By Dr. ESTHER LOVEJOY IN the years to come this war will prove a blessing to the blind. Anew world is being evolved. Nature has at least one extraordinary sense in reserve for those who lose any of the five ordinary senses. The blind feel things that are not within reach. They are conscious of vibrations that are not perceptible to seeing men. The sightless learn to read very quickly by the Braille method. It is interesting to watch the face of a blind man as his fingers pass over the upraised dots of a Braille book and his mind perceives the mysteries recorded there for him. They have special stenographic machines and special print ing presses. Books and magazines are translated into the written language of the sightless. Men blinded in battle are acquiring great skill in the textile arts, as moulders, and in other industries where a highly developed sense of touch is essential to good work. The higher type of blind men have great personal charm. Their souls seem nearer the surface. They are pe culiarly beloved people, and their clairvoyance makes them conscious of the kindness and affection with which they are regarded. Naturally they react to it. Perhaps that is why they usually seem so happy and cheerful. Unfortunately there are forms of mutilation which have the opposite effect. When a man knows that he is re pulsive to every man, woman and child who looks upon him; when he shrinks from the reflection of his own disfigured face in the mirror, and shudders at the strange sound of his own voice, he wants to die. • A great deal is being done for these mutilated men. They are being refitted with arms and legs. Plastic surgery is doing its part, too, in the way of restoring palates, teeth and facial contour, and the American Red Cross in Paris is attempting to make life more livable for them by providing masks which restore their original features. They will be useful members of society, but the,soul of man craves more than service. Life and liberty are precious possessions, but the pursuit of happiness is the dearest right of man. We are all alike. We want to go through life with the sweet illusion that the blue bird of happiness is just within reach, and this illusion is almost impossible to the disfigured man. It is the sacred duty of all those who have been bene fited by their sacrifice to leave nothing undone to restore their usefulness; to employ every art to increase their men tal and physical powers and the charm of personalities, to the end that their lives may be enriched rather than impor* erished by the fortunes of war. * o , 4 j* , V yy ■• V '^"V Victoly is a 1 OiiestioLcrStamina p e& Meat-Fatsys^Baigi the fuel for Fighters L I,N ‘ TED STATES FpOD THE BTARKVILLE NEWS, BTARKVTLLE, MISSISSIPPI.

Every American who wants to help win this war should bear in mind that private service must give way to government service should emergen cies require that everything be subordinated to the telephone demands of the army, the navy and other representatives of th© government. So when the increased business of fall and win ter Is reflected in your telephone service by a slow ing down and by more frequent “busy” reports, * remember that we are using every at our command to keep our service up to its usual stand ard. Every available position at our switchboard is occupied and it is difficult to secure additional positions because Uncle Sam’s requirements have reduced the available supply of material to the point where manufacturers cannot make a definite promise of delivery. . Here’s how you can help. Use the tele phone only for necessary calls, particularly during the busy hours of the day. Be patient when S there is a delay. Be cheerful to the operator and f if you have trouble call “COMPLAINT.” I I We appreciate co-operation. | CUMBERLAND TELEPHONE 9 j AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY (JmJ I Incorporated Are You a Woman? i!
