The nervous system is the alarm 6ystem
of the human body. r
la perfect health we hardly realize that
we have a network of nerves, but when
health is ebbing, when strength is declin
ing, the same nervous system gives the
alarm in headaches, tiredness, dreamful
sleep, irritability and unless corrected,
leads straight to a breakdown.
To correct nervousness, Scott's Emul
sion is exactly what you should take; its
rich nutriment gets into the blood and
rich blood feeds the tiny nerve-cells while
the whole system responds to its refresh
ing tonic force. It is free from alcohol.

Stockbridge, Mass., Sept. 4. Os
wald Garrison Villard, publisher of
the New York Evening Post, in an
address before the Laurel Hill asso
elation here to-day, declared that
the movement among American citi
zens of foreign, especially German
descent, to form bodies apart from
the citizenship presented a far-reach
ing domestic issue which the Ameri
can people must conquer.
Villard said that an important fac
tor ii the continuance of the "Amer
lean melting pot" lay in educating
immigrants to proper duties of citi
zenship. He saMd he was "born on
German soil, of a German father."
Foreigners becoming American
citizens should be made to under
stand, Mr. Villard said, that there
can be no divided citizenship or
layalty or allegiance under the
American flag; that no one can ac
cept political obligations here while
at heart loyal to another social sys
tem, another entitle or another
code of laws.
Your Body Protests Against Cal
You havis noticed the disagreeable
effects of calomel, the sickening nausea
that is characteristic. There is no rea-
1 son for tearing up your system in such
a drastic manner.
Liv-Ver-Lax, that wonderful vege
table compound, is just as useful as
calomel for toning up your liver and
ridding your system of stagnating pois
ons, and it does not make you feel
badly like calomel. It is pleasant to
take with no unpleasant after effects.
Keep it in your home for health's sake
If Liv-Ver-Lax is not entirely satis
factory, your money will , be returned
without question. The original bears
the likeness of L. E. Grigsby. For sale
at 50c and $1 by Oliver's Red Cross

A radiant, rythmic presence
Of mist and sun and cloud,
With winter at the crossing,
And summer at the ford.
Midway the mystic river.
She hesitates between;
The sweet, elusive autumn.
In mist and shade and sheen.
The silver veil of winter,
The golden summer's maze,
In mellow measure mingled,
Smile in the autumn's haze.
