Some have expressed a desire
for rhairs rather than for seats in
the bleachers. The management
hav- to date looked with disfa'or
upon the idea of rhairs on the
Pooi because of the way in which
they obstruct the view of the first

cause only two rows of chairs can

To the American People
THE chief cause of the ili health of the American peo
ple is CONSTIPATION. If the waste of the body is not
properly disposed of daily, indigestion must result. When
there is indigestion there is an improper assimilation of
food, loss of flesh, and in time a general rundown condition
affecting the whole nervous system and often causing disease
of various organs.
THE AMERICAN LITTLE LIVER TABLET is the
"Best General Regulator." They act as a general tonic to
the stomach and bowels; nature is simply aided in doing her
work properly and good heahh results. They are purely
vegetable. Dose One or two at night as needed. In case of
chronic constipation, one-half to one glass of hot water, night
and morning is helpful.
THE AMERICAN THROAT TABLET (improved)
have been carefully compounded te meet the general demand
for a general throat tablet, to be disolvcd in the mouth for
hoarscness, soie throat, tonsilitis, coughs and colds. As
children cannot gai'glc, and the American Throat Tablet is as
palatable as candy, it is the icmedy par excellence for them.
They are helpful to the stomach an(l cannot be surpassed as
a preparation to be kept in the house at ali times. Directions
Dissolve one in mouth every hour or two as needed. Small
children one-fourth tablet.
