In the first months of 1913 the
Democratic party came into con

turned to the Democratic party as
the instrument by which they
should be able to regain control of
their own affairs and have them

Few people understand why eggs
play so important a part in Easter
celebrations. The reason is that
the mediaeval law forbade eggs dur
ing Lent, and, hence, at Easter the
hungry mediaeval populace return
ed to their favorite dish with re
joicing. With us foday, when Lent
no longer forbids eggs, there is no
reason for featuring them upon our
Easter Sunday breakfast menu.
But we do - it is the pretty survival
of an obselete custom.
In Elizabeth's time he who ate
flesh during Lent was fined three
pounds sterling. He who so much
as had meat in his house was pil
loried or set in the stocks.
But the rich, as usual, dodged the
harsh Lenten laws, and they who
could afford it bought licenses to
eat meat in Lent For these licenses

Stomach disorders axe so common la

Impossible to get any Tellef. Sirica

Vinol makes weak stomachs strong
because it strengthens and tones opt

nerves of the digestive organs. Vlnol
Is easily assimilated by the weakest
stomachs, and Is delicious to the taste.
Try a bottle of Vinol with the un
