Sick Tomorrow! * I Guarantee Dodson’s Liver Tone Don’t take nasty, dangerous calomel wEen bilious, constipated, headachy. Listen to me f, Calomel salivates! It’s mercury. Calomel acts like dynamite on a sluggish liver. When calomel comes into contact with sour bile it crashes into it,causing cramping-and nausea. If you feel bilious, headachy, con stipated and all knocked out, just go to ygur druggist and get a bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone for'a few cents which is a harmless vegetable sub stitute for dangerous calomel. Take a spoonful and if it doesn’t start your liver and straighten you up better and quicker than nasty calo mel and without making you sick, you just go back and get your money. If you take calomel today you’ll be sick and nauseated tomorrow; be sides, it may salivate you, while if you take Dodson’s Liver Tone you will wake up feeling great, full of ambition and ready for work or play. It is harmless, pleasant and safe to give to children; they like it. ♦ ♦♦♦♦♦♦*♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ ♦ + RICHMOND NEWS ♦ ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ Richmond!, I^ov. 7.—(Special.)—Mr. Stephen King died at the home of his son, Luther, Monday night after a I lingering illness.

New York, Nov. 6.—The abdication of the kafiser still is being widely dis cussed in Germany, according to news dispatches from Europe received here. It appears that the military clique and the Pan-Germans are making des perate efforts to save the Hohenzol lern dynasty, while Socialist leaders and others demand its fall. All dis patches indicate that important events are likely to take place in Ger many soon and that the fate of the house of Hohenzollern will be decided one wapr or the other. Paris Is Suspicious. The newspapers of Paris express the opinion that the kaiser's abdica tion Is being discussed openly in the German press because oi its probable effect upon the peace terms to be granted by tjie allies. "It is with the hope of swaying the allies or even disuniting them,” says the Temps, "thajt the Germans may sacrifice William II. They may offer this abdication to the United States and the peoples of Europe as a great sacrifice and as a definite victory for the allies, although the effa(cement of the man principally responsible for the war will only relieve Germany from embarrassment. With its terri tory and economic riches intact, the empire is s&feguardled with or without the Hohenzollerns. With the acces sion of more or less of the Austrian Germans the German empire would remajin for its neighbors and for Eu rope a capital danger. We ought not to be dazzled by abdication, no mat ter how beautifully staged. '* Germany couldi only gain by the disappearance of William. “Her threajt would remain and her force would* increase. The problem of security will remain whether the emperor of tomorrow will be at Mu rich or whether there is. a republic at Berlin.” Reference to Murich in the Temps’ editorial quoted 'above is an allusion to the claim made by the royal fami ly of Bavaria to the German throne should Emperor William abdicate. Says Abdication Is Imminent. /The Murich Post publishes a story to the effect that the kaiser’s abdica tion is imminent. It says that seri ous differences have arisen between the Munich and Berlin governments, and adds: “The Hohenzollerns and- military party would be making a «rfstake to play with fire, for the people are by no melans inclined to be passive.” A dispatch from Berne, Switzerland, todajy said that Philip Scheidemann the Socialist leadler, with the consent of the party, has asked Chancellor Maximillian to submit directly to Em. peror William advice or request that he abdicate. The Socialist manifesto was issued at the same time that the government issued an appeal to the German people. The Socialist docu ment asked! the people not to leave their work to carry on demonstra tions. —-W.S.S. ♦ ARKIXDA NEWS * ***************** Arklnda, Nov. 7.—(Special.)—T. M.

This is the time of the year to think of your Spring Chickens; you naturally want to produce them when they will bring you the best price, then get ready now and' hare them fat for the early mar ket. Early fryers brought 60c per pound last spring, and one should weigh at least two pounds. That means $1.20 each. Devote your attention to the larger breeds such as Barred Rock3, Rhode Island Reds, Wyandot.ts, Bramers and many others; it costs no more to raise these than the small ones. They grow off quicker and footer and bring a better price. Then get ready by first buying a BUCKEYE INCUBATOR, the one perfect machine, the Incubator that absolutely requires no ex perience. All you need; to do is to follow instructions and there is no reason why you should not have almost a 100 per cent hatch. Don't be satisfied with less. Don’t wait until spring to bring your chickens off, do it in the winter and sell them for a big price, when they are scarce. An incubator and Brooder do not cost much and you will indeed be surprised at the returns.
