Public Health service, Dr. Anna Howard Shaw sends the following message to the State divisions of the Woman's committee: "The Woman's committee of the Council of National Defense, desires to express its great satisfaction with the hearty response, the ingenuity and initiative manifested by the State divisions in their plans toward the support of this work. The holy and patriotic rivalry between the states in order to lead in the number of nurses enrolled give promise that when the drive is finished, there will be, not only the twenty five thousand asked for but a greater number to asure us of supnort when another demand for nurses is made. "The Government agencies in Washington cooperating in the drive will await with eagerness reports from the states, and interest will be felt as to which state will be able to first deliver its quota. "The inspiring news from the front, the courage, tlevotion and splendid sacrifce shown by our men on the battle fields, are a challenge to the women of the nation to re spoind to their needs we are sure our young women will ccept and the re spouse will be: 'As you have offered yourselves to serve and suffer for as and our country, we gladly offer our selves to serve and seek to heal your wounds in honor of your service and our country, and we hereby tender our service in the same spirit of pa triotic dvotion to duty which has so ennobled you.' " CALOMEL SALIVATES AND MAKES YOU SICK Acts like dynamite on a slur gish liver and you lose a days work. There's no reason why a person should take sickening, salivating cal omel when a few cents buys a large bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone---a perfect substitue for calomel. It is a pleasant, vegetable liquid which will start your liver just as . surely as calomel, but it doesn't make s you sick and can not salivate. t Children and grown folks can take Dodson's Liver Tone, because it is perfectly harmless. Calomel is a dangerous drug. It Sis mercury and attacks your bones. Take a dose of nasty calomel today r and you will feel weak, sick and nau seated tomorrow. Don't lose a day's work. Take a spoonful of Dodson's t Liver Tone insteald and you will wake e up feeling great. No more bilious- e ness, constipation, sluggishness, headache, coated tongue or sour i stomach. Your druggist says if you tl don't find Dodson's Liver Tone acts a better than horrible calomel your money is waiting for you.-Adv. el ELECTION PROCLAMATION.

There are families who always aim to keep a bottle of Chamberlain's sh; Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy in the Pr house for use in case it is needed, and heur find that it is not only a good invest- w ment but saves them no end of suf- Bo fering. As to its reliability, ask any- nu one who has used it.-Adv th( ho If you were an American soldier es coming cold and wet and tired from f the front line treiches, wouldn't it deligh, you to find Salvation Army lasses frying fresh doughnuts and making hot coffee for you? When T you "loosen up" for the Salvation Army drive you help provide these sha comforts for the boys in France. No wit institution comes as near the firing Bo line as the Salvation Army, def WOMEN TORTURED. tha Suffer terribly with corns becLmse of high heels, but why care now. Women wear high heels which 1uckle up their toes and they suffer terribly front corns. Women then. proceed to trim these pests, seeking relief, but they hardly realize the terrible danger from infection, says a Cincinnati authority. Corns can easily be lifted out with the fingers if you will vet from any drug store a quarter of :.n ouince of a drug called frezone. :'is is suf ficient to remove every h:a:d or soft corn or callus from one's feet. You simply apply, a few drops directly upon the tender, aching corn or ca! lus. The soreness is relieved at once and soon the entire corn or callus, root and all, lifts out without one particle of pain. This freezone is a sticky substance which dries in a moment. It just stlab$ s up the. cron without inflam ing or even irritating the surround ing tissue or skih. Tell your wife Sabout this---Adv.
