Corinth, Miss.: '! am a city tax

I was in a weak, run-down condition so
that I became exhausted by every little
exertion. My druggist told me about
Vinol, and I decided to take it. In a
week I noticed confclerabl3 improve

have gained twenty pct-rda in weight,

Vinol a fine tonic to ereata strength for
old people." J, A. Fkics, Corinth,

As on grows old their organs act
more slowly and less affectaaJiy than in
youth, circulation is poor, the blood
gets thin, the appetite poor and diges
tion weak. Vinol, our delicious cod liver
and Iron tonic, is the ideal strenpthener
and body builder for old folks because
it creates a good healthy appetite,
strengthens digestion, enriches the
blood, improves circulation and in this
natural manner builds np, strengthens
and invigorates feeble, run-down, nerv

Birthday Dinner;
The seventy-fifth birthday of Mrs.
Berry Joyner was celebrated on Wed
nesday, Dec. 2," with a dinner and a
gathering of her relatives and friends
at her son-in-law's, Mr. Scott Wiley, at
the old Berry Joy5tr home. The din
ner, prepared by her daughter, Mrs.
Wiley (one of the best cooks in the
county), was one long to be remem
bered. The gathering of old friends
and neighbors was a social feature sel
dom equaled. v Mrs. Joyner is loved
by the entire community for her moth
erly Christian character, and but for
rheumatics is in good health.
One particular feature of dinner was
the age. of the twelve that sat at the
first table. They were W. Z. Masson
gill, Mrs. Callie Cartwright, Mrs. G. S.
Joyner, Sr., Mrs. Phillips, Mrs. Ellen
Wiley, Mrs. Mary Wade, - Mrs. Rida

Joyner, Mrs. R. H. Joyner, Mr. and
Mrs. H. A Compton only oue under
60 years. One was 61, the other ten
were from 69 to 86. An average of the
twelve was 71, and aggregate of all 852
years. ' "
Those present, of the children, were:
Thos. Joyner and family, of Rives;
Mrs. Cartwright and daughter, of Un
ion City, and Mrs. Jack Latimer. The

' Italy In the Balance.
When Italy refused to be drawn into
the war as a party to the Triple Alliance
her action made the probable duration
of the war less than it would otherwise
have been. If she should now go into
the war it would be upon the Bide of
the Allies. The effect would be to de
crease the period of fighting, as it is
not probable that Italy's entrance would
draw the fire of any nation not now en
gaged and inclined toward the German-
Austrian cause. But if the Italians can
keep out of a war which tbey ftre not
in a position, financially, to prosecute
without great hardship, they will not
be internationally blamed for any pro
longation of the fighting that may be
attributed to their maintenance of neu
trality. .
The tragedy is great enough as it
stands. It is to be hoped that no other
power will become a party to the fight
ing now in progress. Italy , would lose
everything if the Germans should win
without her being involved. . Prussian
might would never forget or forgive
her refusal to remain in the Triple Al
liance, and German Imperialism would
make the Italian Peninsula useful as a
part of its Mediterranean programme.
Italy, in the event of Germany's scor
ing success, would be crushed. The
Allies feel, quite naturally, that- inas
much as Italy's future depends upon
their defeating the Germans and Aus
trians they have a moral right to call
upon ber to lend a hand. But the
claim is hardly better founded than
would be a similar one against any
country which might lie in the course
of the German advance if the Greater
Germany of Maximilian Harden'g and
Kaiser Wilhelm's dreams should come
into existence as a result of the present
Italy's right to remain neutral will
not be challenged by disinterested ob
servers. Humane observers will hope
that the titanic proportions of the con
flict will not be increased by the partici
pation of the Italian army and navy.

"N. R. A. writes: 1 am 45 and do not have enough blood.
Will elixir of iron, quinine and strychnine be of any use?
What dose should be taken and how often? What would you
recommend as a blood builder and tonic?'
"Elixir of iron, quinine and strychnine constitutes a good
general blood tonic - But poor blood is an effect Generally
it is possible to find the cause. It is good judgment to treat
causes, not effects. Too many people dope with iron tonic
year in and year out, when what they need to do to remove
the cause would not be difficult to discover or remedy.
Sometimes it is hookworm, sometimes constipation, some
times indoor life, sometimes stomach ulcer, sometimes cancer,
sometimes bad eating habits." '
The above article originated with Dr. W. A. Evans, health
specialist on the staff of the Chicago Tribune. Dr. Evans, in
the reply he makes N. R. A., is a CHIROPRACTOR all the
way through the first paragraph of his answer. He turns
"doctor" again, however, in the last paragraph, where he looks
to hookworms instead of SUBLUXATIONS as the "cause ,
