FRAOMKNTS OF BURÄTED SHELL.
Says Popular Mechanics, commenting
upon the picture:
' The average citizen who is accus
tomed to reading of shells and other
munitions of war rarely lias the faint
est conception of the fearfully devas
tating effect that results when a shell
explodes.
"The shell, which was known as a
six-inch A. P. shell, originally weighed
HtJ 1 .« pounds; the recovered fragments
aggregated 94 3-15 pounds, of which
rim largest piece weighed 10 Vi pounds.
Th** average weight of the pieces was
- 5-1 G ounces. The shell, which was
loaded with black powder,
tired from the gun passed through six
inches of hard-faced Krupp plate, and
burst when about eight feet beyond.
Arrangements had previously been
made for the recovery of as large a
number of fragments as possible.
When the count was made there
being
were almost 650 pieces. Had the pro
« tile burst in a group of men, the
fatal results <
easily be imagined."

CANADA. THE EVELESS EDEN
Lack of Women a Serious Handicap
to Development of the
Country.
Canada is whining the unenviable
reputation of an Eveless Eden. The
men outnumber (he women, and even
immigration does not mend matters,
for It is figured that of the 14,000 new
settlers who have ar.ived in Canada
since the first of the year n
than eight per cent, of them have been
women. Of this eight per cent, the
majority were married women, says
the Rochester Post-Express. In the
western part of the dominion the lack
of women is a serious handicap to the
development of the country. The set
tlers cannot find wives, and as wom
an plays just as important a part as
man In the drama of a new country,
the government of Canada is worried
over the unenviable situation. The
government is satisfied with the class
of immigrants that have arrived this
year. They are said to be a sturdy
lot of men, few of whom are past 45 ,
and most of whom are between 20
, lm | 05 years, and many are fairly well
(io . A i arR e number are from the
north of Ireland, many from Scotland
anJ the rest from the crowded centers
0 f England. The government frankly
adm , :s tha , the dominion cannot
ply wive s for these new settlers and
advises them to send to the old

"Be Pleasant Every Morning Until
Ten O'clock; the Rest o t the Day
Will Take Care of Itself."
This Is one of the best little fer
mons we know. Have you ever
stopped to think that the morning
is the time when your temper is usu
ally ruffled, and have you ever
stopped to think that the cause of
bad temper in the mornin ; is nearly
always because your stomach has not
been working properly during the
night? It has contained a lot of indi
gestible substances that form gas
and makes you have dreams. It
breaks up your rest and you wake up
in the morning tired, instead of re
freshed, as nature intended you
should.
Our grand sires required no ad
monition to "Be pleasant every morn
ing until 10 o'clock; the rest of the
day will take care of itself." for they
digested their food and woke up full
of life and energy ready for the day's
duties, and this was because they
lived on simple foods instead of high
ly seasoned palatable concoctions,
which contain no nourishment. Na
ture gave us milk, wheat and eggs,
and on these foods a person can
live indefinitely, but if the milk is
skimmed, and if the outside of the
wheat is taken off the kernel, and if
the lime, the salt, and the iron, which
is in the outer part of the wheat
berry, if these are ail removed, you
have simply starch alone; the starch
goes into the stomach and becomes
sugar.
Do you know that a person would
starve to death on plain white bread
and water? Do you know that he
could live indefinitely on whole wheat
bread or on whole wheat food ana
water? These interesting facts are
all set forth in a book called "Back
to Nature," which tells about proper
living and gives recipes for meals of
the simple kind—the kind that makes
you strong and well; the kind that
makes you "Pleasant every morning
until 10 o'clock." This book is pub
lished at a great expense, but it is
given free to every reader of this
paper. It is an advertisement of
■'EGG-O-SEE," the great food—which
is made from «'hole wheat, which is
baked and predigested and is all
ready to serve from the package you
buy at your grocers. You get more
life and energy from a 10 -cent pack
age of EGG-O-SEE than you will get
from a thousand dollars' worth of
white bread. This is no idle claim.
It is a scientific fact. We want to
tell about this simple food question,
so write us and say "Please send me
a copy of your book 'Back to Na
ture,' " and the book will be sent you
at once without charge. Address

TONIC TREATMENT
Weak Stomach and Sick Headache
Cured by Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills.
The symptoms of stomach trouble
vary. Some victims have a ravenous
appetite, others loathe tho sight of food.
Often there is a feeling as of weight
the chest, a full feeling in the throat.
Sometimes tho gas presses on the heart
and leads the sufferer to think ho has
heart disease. Sick headache is a fre
quent ami distressing symptom.
A weak stomach needs a digestive
tonic and that there is no better tonic
for this purpose than Dr.Williams'Pink
Pills is shown by the statement of Mr.
A. O. Merrill, a mining man, of Oneals,
Calif.,
U. S. Regular Infantry.
" I had never been well since I left
the army," ho says, ''always having had
trouble with my stomach, which was
weak. I was run down and debilitated.
Could keep nothing on my stomach,
and at times hud sick headache so had
that I did not care whether I lived or
died. My stomach refused to retain
even liquid food and I almost despaired
of getting well ns I had tried so many
kinds of medicine without relief. Then
I was bitten by a rattlesnake and that
laid me up from work entirely for a
year, six mouths of which I spent in bed.
" One day a friend recommended Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills to me and I began
taking them. They cured me when all
other medicine had failed,
recommended the pills to a great many,
for during my recovery every one asked
what was helping me so and I told
them Dr. Williams'Pink Pills. I can
not speak too highly of them."
