Calomel Loses You a Day's Work!
Take Dodson’s Liver Tone Instead
Read my guarantee! If bilious, constipated or head
achy you need not take nasty, sickening, danger
ous calomel to gel straightened up.
Every druggist in town—your drug
gist and everybody’s druggist has no
ticed a great falling off in the sale of
calomel. They all give the same rea
son. Dodson’s Liver Tone is taking
its place.
“Calomel Is dangerons and people
know it. while Dodson’s Liver Tone- is
perfectly safe and gives better re
sults.” said a prominent local druggist.
Dodson’s Liver Tone is personally
guaranteed by every druggist who
sells it. A large hottle doesn't cost
very much, but if it falls to give easy
relief in every ease of liver sluggish
ness and constipation, you have only
to ask for your money back.
Dodson’s Liver Tone is n ploasant
tasting, purely vegetable remedy,
harmless to both children and adults.
Take a spoonful at night and wake up
feeling fine; no biliousness, sick head
ache, acid stomach or constipated
bowels. It doesn’t' gripe or cause in
convenience all the nest day like vio
lent calomel. Take a dose of calomel
today and tomorrow you will feel
weak, sick and nauseated. Don’t lose
a day's work! Take Dodson's Liver
Tone instead and feel fine, full of
vigor and ambition.—Adv.

Face Coverings Abandoned by
the Women of Paris.
Curious Arrangement, Imitation of the
“Flu” Mask, Is Being Worn by
American Woman.
The story conies from Paris that
women have abandoned the veil. They
are tired of it. They have taken to
cartwheel hats and do not wish to de
stroy the outline of the brim by the.
folds of a faee covering.
There are women over here, howev
er, writes a fashion correspondent,
recently returned from Paris, wiio are
wearing the most curious veil America
has seen. It is attached to a (urban;
it is ns thick as tlie heaviest coarse
net can be woven, and., it is drawn
tight around tlie eyes and the top of
the nose, leaving tlie neck and lower
part of the faee hare. It is the best
imitation of a masque that we have
had so far, and it is intimated that it
was taken from the influenza mask
which was worn over tlie lower part
of the face. One of our own design
ers of eccentricities has produced a
genuine influenza mask of dyed lace
which is drawn upward over the chin
and nose to the back of the head. The
French one is more seductive and co
In America we are addicted to veils.
We wear them at all seasons, whether
or not we know how to adjust them.
Tlie reason for their diminished fash
ion during the last year is due to the
war activities of the great mass or
women. First, a veil takes a long
time to adjust; it should be done well,
or not at all.; and, secondly, it is not a
good addition to uniform caps. So the
veil dropped out, except among a cer
tain • segment of fashionables who
would feel ashamed of their naked
ness, as they say, if they went with
out it. The hurry and flurry of life
hns not allowed much time for leisure
ly dressing, nnd although the veil was
insisted upon by the shops during the
Influenza epidemic, the doctors thought
it was extremely harmful and injuri
ous. They knew what the shops evi
dently did not know, that an influenza
mask must be washed every three
hours in a disinfectant. The ex
treme danger in the veil rested in the
fact that it was not washed for days
at a time, If ever.
For those who wear the veil, the mil
liners and jewelers have united in in
troducing a trifle which has gained
much prestige. It is an arrow, an
aviator’s wings, a dagger or the fleur
de-lis done in jewels. This catches
the veil at the extreme upper tilt of
the hut in front.
It has been the jewel of the war.
Women have turned their brooches into
these veil pins; they have had other
jewelry reset to possess the luxury of
the moment, nnd they have bought
thpm in real or imitation stones, in
order to be in the procession of fash
Three-Piece Sets of Fur or Fur and
Silk or Velvet Combined Com
prise Attractive Outfit.
What could be more fascinating
than some one of the three-piece sets
—hat, collarette and muff—made of
fur or fur nnd silk or velvet com
bined? They are of varied shapes
and in various color combinations,
these jaunty little sets.
One set consists of turban, with
just the top of the crown of kolitfsliy,
while the lower part of the turban is
swathed with velvet in a charming old
blue tone, the velvet terminating in a
large loop at the left side toward the
back. A large crushed band of the
velvet edged at the top with a narrow
band of the kolinsky forms the col
larette, which also terminates in a
Gold-and-yellow brocaded satin is

wrap. The lines are extremely simple.
The collar and cuffs are formed of
wide bands of sable.
large bow at the left side towards the
back. The muff Is made rtf the blue
velvet and kolinsky. A wide band of
the fur forms the center, while the
fabric forms the sides, one end of
which is drawn through ti band of)
the fur.
Another set consists of a wrap
which after being snugly draped about
the shoulders crosses in front and Is
tied In the back with a velvet ribbon.
The muff would be simple and round,
were It not for the velvet bow thut
runs through It, with loops of coquet
tish twist. The hat is oddly shaped
and fits the head closely; at the top
are loops of the velvet ribbon.
Rosettes o' Velvet.
Large puffed rosettes of velvet,
which were very popular as trimmings
in millinery circles late last fall, are
again being seen. On extremely large
huts tlds trimming is placed at the
trout, while for the smaller shapes It
is used at the side or back. Often
the rosettes correspond In color with
Hie facing of the hat. Another fea
ture of the millinery situation lg the
increasing call for blue hats. Sev
eral shades of blue are being used In
making small velvet hats, including
eha trie, national, sapphire, Yale and
New Necklines in Night Wear.
The varied neck line that is domi
nant in our frocks, has also gained
high vogue in pajamas, nightgowns
and negligees. In these garments the
square, the deeply oval, the round line
are all seen. Sometimes there are no
collars, and sometimes there are soft,
wide, caplelike collars.
Feather Pillows.
Feathers for pillows should first be
put into pillow slips of strong netting;
then this can he put inside the ordi
nary ticking slip. This enables the
feathers to be easily washed and
Accessory Is More Sophisticated and
Alluring Than Was Its Prede
cessor of a Decade Ago.
The sash of 1919 Is a more sophis
ticated and alluring accessory tliau
its predecessor of a decade ago, and
it is adjusted to suit the fancy of the
wearer or the artistic conception of
the designer. Sometimes the bow is
'directly in the back, big and broad,
dike the obi of the maid of old Japan.
Again the loops will be placed at the
iright or the left side, a perky, jaunty
arrangement of silk or satin, some
times with one instead of two long
ends and fringe edged. Then there is
itlie broad girdle, usually of the mate
rial, deftly maneuvered with ends
terminating in tassels.
However it is introduced the sash
Is a distinctive feature of frocks. Even
ithe tailored serge, fashioned severely,
iwlth high collar and long, tight
sleeves, boasts a sash these days, at
jleast one chic model does, the sash i
In a wide bow at the normal waistline j
being of the material and terminating
in the back. Another use for the ma
terial sash is on the velvet frock, one
example being an old rose velvet gown
worn by a young girl in one of the
new plays. It is a delightfully simple
gown, oue-piU'e, medium width skirt
and wide girdle and broad bow of the
velvet. A narrow band of kolinsky
outlines the round neck and edges the
modified kimono sleeves.
The sash, on the order of the sweat
er accessory, of medium width and
finished with balls and tassels of silk,
Is still in vogue and it is particularly
adapted to the trim little gown of tri
colette or the equally supple wool
Suits for Spring.
Predictions as to the new spring
suits and frocks are heard from all
directions. It is reported that they
will be slightly longer, slightly nar
rower and deeldely brighter in color.
The neutral colors, beige and gray, are
said to be banished, and in their places
are substituted the more lively shades
of chaudron. Green also is mentioned
as a very possible coming color.

Solid in Matching Silk—Adds
Richness to Dress.
Her frock was nn extremely unso

Fashion Notes.
Georgette continues to predominate
ns the blouse fabric, but as early
spring fashions crowd out the new
prevailing modes, look for blouses of
voile, dimity and net. Blouses in such
striking colors as Peking blue and hen
na are n midseason novelty. Sealskin
browns and, navy are two other good
blouse colors of the moment, the mate
rial in all instances being georgette.
Now There’s “Foch" Blue.
Two new shades launched since the
victory of the allies are Foch blue and
artillery red. The former is the ex
act tint of the French soldier’s uni
form, and the red is slightly darker
than bright American Beauty.

A Word About the
People are easily frightene'd when they
think something is the matter with their
lungs or heart, and well they may be; but
few people understand the dangers of dis
eased kidneys. These organs have a duty
of vital importance to perform, and if they
are diseased, there is no telling how or
where the symptoms may appear. The
kidneys are filters, and when they are
healthy they remove the poisons from the
blood and purify it. When the kidneya
are diseased, the poisons are spread every
where, and one of these poisons is urio
acid. The uric acid is carried all through
the system and deposited in various place*,
in the form c f urate salts—in the feet,
ankles, wrists and back—often forming
bags under the eyes. Sometimes the result
ing trouble is called rheuihatism, lumbago,
sciatica and backache. Finally, come stone
in the bladder, diabetes and Bright's dis
Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., in recent
years, discovered that a certain combina
tion of remedies would dissolve uric acid
(urate salts) in the system. He found this
combination to be harmless, so that he
made it up in tablets, of double strength,
and called them Anuric Tablets. They *
dissolve uric acid in the human system afl
hot coffee dissolves sugar. If you have
uric acid troubles, don’t delay in taking
Ajnuric Tablets, which can be secured in
the drug stores. You can write Dr. Pierce,
too, and he will tell you w’hat to eat and
how to live so that more uric acid will not
form in your system. Dr. Pierce will not
charge for this advice.
