I Guarantee "Dodsons' Liver Tone" Will Give You the Best Liver
and Bowel Cleansing You Ever Had-Doesn't Make You Sick!
Stop using calomel! It makes yo
sick. Don't lose a day's work. If yotu
feel lazy, sluggish, bilious or consti
pated, listen to me!
C('alomel is mercury or quicksilver
which causes necrosis of the bone.
Calomel, when it comes into contact
with sour bile crashes into it, breaking
it up. This is when you feel that aw
ful nausea and cramping. If you feel
"all knocked out," if your liver is tor
pid and bowels constipated or you
have headache, dizziness, coated
tongue, if breath is bad or stomach
sour just try a spoonful of harmless
Dodson's Liver Tone.
Here's my guarantee--Go to any
drug store or dealer and get a 50-cent
bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone. Take a
spoonful and if it doesn't straighten
you right up and make you feel line
and vigorous I want you to go back to
the store and get your money. Dod
son's Liver Tone i. destroying the
sale of calomel because it is real liver
nedicine; entirely vegetable, therefore
it cannot salivate or make you sick.
I guarantee that one spoonful of
Dodson's Liver Tone will put your
sluggish liver to work and clean your
bowels of that sour bile and consti
pated waste which is clogging your
system and making you feel miserable.
I guarantee that a bottle of I)odson's
Liver Tone wll keep your entire fam
ily feeling fine for months. Give it to
your children. It is harmless; doesn't
gripe and they like its pleasant taste.
Victims of the Drug Habit.
According to a recent estimate of
the United States public health serv
ice, the number of persons in this
country who are victims of the drug
habit is about 70,000, and the number
of doses of narcotic drugs consumed
by them annually is about 850,000,000.
This estimate is based on figures col
lected in the state of Tennessee where
under a recently enacted antinarcotic
law 1,403 permits were issued in six
months to persons petitioning for the
privilege of using narcotic drugs, and
the consumption of such drugs amount
ed to 8,498,200 average doses.
Harvey, La.-Mrs. S. W. Spruiell, of
this place, writes: "I suppose it will be
a great pleasure to you to know that you
cured my child. She had pellagra very
bad and the doctor said she never would
get well. She is well of pellagra and
looks fine.
"You may use this letter as a testimon
ial if you wish. Great benefit have you
done my daughter, Mindie Abrams."
There is no longer any doubt that pel
lagra can be cured. Don't delay until it
is too late. It is your duty to consult the
resourceful Baughn.
The symptoms--hands red like sunburn,
skin peeling off, sore mouth, the lips,
throat and tongue a flaming red, with
much mucus and choking; indigestion and
nausea, either diarrhoea or constipation.
There is hope; get Baughn's big Free
book on Pellagra and learn about the
remedy for Pellagra that has at last been
found. Address American Compounding

money is refunded in any case where the

His Excuse.
In his Savannah camp Bill Dono

he brought in a consignment of grid

"What do you mean," said Bill, "by
bringing me in cold cakes?"
"Well, I tell you, boss," said Sutton,
"I brung them cakes in so fast for you
that I guess they hit a draft"

City Controller of New York Goes on
Record as Opposing Increase in
Their Number.
City Controller Prendergast of New
York opposes increasing free public
baths, strangely enough for a former
progressive leader. He is not one bit
impressed by the argument that baths
prevent lawlessness and raise the
standard of morals. "I doubt," he
says, "if morals are as high today gen
erally as they were twenty years ago,
before the community had any of these
uplifting facilities." Replying to a
question about cleanliness being next
to godliness, he said that all that was
necessary was soap and water and the
inclination, particularly the last, which
the city, he thought, could not hope to
Yet the civilizing influence of soap
is traditional. The bathtub has been
exalted Into a national ideal in Eng
land and a national reality in the
United States. The backward peoples
have no baths. Physical cleanliness
must inspire moral and mental clean
liness, not infallibly, perhaps, but the
tendency, such as it may be' is that
way. As to the inclination, may not
the city supply even that by offering
the temptation of bathing?
Aside from the question of morals,
how about health? Surely the con
troller will admit that cleanliness im
proves health and that is certainly a
function that the municipal govern
ment ought to be interested in.
