The United States prints and furnishes envelopes for less than the printer is obliged copay for the stock and sends the envelopes through the mails free of charge, while the printer has to pay postage when he wants to send envelopes or anythang else through the mails. Uncle Sam sends advertising matter through che mails free of charge, calling attention to what a “good thing” he has to offer in envelopes, while the printer would be sent to the “pen” if he attempted to use a government envelope for the same purpose. Uncle Sam can conduct land lotteries and advertise them, but if the printer advertises any kind of game of chance or even publishes the^ result of a progressive card party at which prizes are awarded the printercommits an awful offense. Uncle Sam even tells the printer he doesn’t know enough to run the subscritionend of his business and that the government em ployees at Washington with little foreign prefixes dangling to their names must act as “creditmen” and tell us we cannot trust a per fectly reliable patron for more than the time allowed by them. Uncle Sam, you,re a dear old man, and we shall try to continue to obey you but we may not continue to love and honor you twenty-four hours each day unless you love the printer sufficiently to be fair with him or buy his business, pay him what his plant is wroth and then run the printing business for the whoie Unite< States.

Road t.he Picayune. A Constipation Remedy Free There is no action of your daily; life of greater importance than to see that your bowels move. They should move at least once a day naturally, and by that is meant without any help. If they do not move at least once a day you can consider yourself con stipated and it is time you did some* thing about it. You will be glad to know there Is a way out of the difficulty. L>ea* uel Landerdale, an old soldier at Quincy, 111., Elmer McMillan, of Speed, Mo., Mrs. Monahan, of Stonewall, Miss., and many others were as you are now. But one day they awoke to the fact that Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin was curing their friends, so they bought it too and it cured them. Today they are loud Us praise of it. What Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin did for them it should do for you. Surely your constipation is no worse than theirs, one of whom had it since '61. It only remain* for you to realize that salts are of but temporary good, and what you want is * permanent cure; that purgative tablets, cathartic pills and such violent things make a great show of doing something, but do nothing that is lasting. Dr. Cald well's Syrup Pepsin is a scientific prepa ration, a laxative-tonic, a mild syrupy liquid that contains ingredients that not only cure the constipation, but tone the intestinal muscles so that they learn again to work without help. A bottle caa be bought of any druggist for the small price of 50 cents, and there is a dollar size for families who have already found out its wonderful value in stomach, liver and bowel troubles, in old or young. Send your name and address to the doc tor and a free trial bottle will be sent you so that you can test it before buying. If there is anything about your ailment that you don't understand, or if you want any medical advice, write to the doctor, and he will answer you fully. There Is no charge for this service. The address is Dr. W. B. Caldwell. 500 Caldwell bldg., Montlcello, 111.
