Nashville, Tenn., Feb. 10. "Old Lim ber," the only dog whose yelp was ever heard in a political campaign in Ten nessee, has not been tempted from his familiar hunts in the Happy Valley vi cinity by the bright lights of the cap ital at which his master, Governor Alf Taylor, is presiding. Reports that the Democratic legisla ture contemplated making an appro priation on the Mansion grounds for a louse for "Old Limber," have, led his master to announce that he will promptly veto such a proposition, and this rumored activity of. political enemies is likely to result in the gov ernor keeping "Old Limber" at home. "Old Limher furnished much mate rial for Governor Taylor's speeches dur ing bis campaign. I he governor al ways gave a graphic recital of "Old Limber's" prowess as a fox hunter. ""Old Limber' is being well cared for in a good home in eastern Tennessee and gets three square meals a day," is the last word from the governor on the subject. "He would not be contented in the city. He wants to lie where he can occasionally survey the lofty mountains over whose heights he has many times chased the fox with the rest of the pack making music at his heels. Old Limber' is nine years old, and is too old to run now, but he re members and often dreams of his past achievements." "If you have never heard 'Old'Lim lier' in full cry." the governor contin ues, growing more eloquent, "you have never heard music. He is gifted in every mite and in a chae, at one time or another, he will let you have all of them. You could distinguish Did Lim ber's' voice from the rest of the pack eight miles away. Honest! That dog never lied to me in his life. He has never been known to yelp on a cold trail. Whenever the voice of Did Lim ler" is heard, everybody knows that there is a fox around." The governor's . eastern Tennessee home place bviasts not only 'Did Lim-li-r," the most famous hound dog in Tennessee, but also a son who has taken his p'ai-e as pack leader and a grandson as well.

Hollis Do You Know a Baby Sick With Constipation Tell the mother to give half a, teaspoon ful of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. NO thoughtful mother with children in the house will risk being without a good, reliable laxative. It will save many a serious illness many a doctor's visit. When the baby cries and is fretful, when the boy has no appelate and won't play, when the girl is listless and f ever lsli, when there are complaints of headaches and colds, the mother can suspect constipation. Give Dr. Cald well's Syrup Pepsin in the small dose prescribed on the bottle, when you put the child to bed, and with morning the ailment will have disappeared, Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is a popular compound of Egyptian Senna and other simple laxative herbs with pepsin and pleasant-tasting aromatics. It acts gently and mildly, and children take it without objection. A sixty-cent bottle is enough to last an average fam ily many months. The ingredients are endorsed in the U. S. Pharmacopoeia, and last year American mothers bought over eight million bottles of Dr. Cald well Syrup Pepsin from druggists. It is the largest selling liquid laxative in the world, and few cautious families are ever without it. TRY IT FREE S;nd tne your name and ad dress and I tfill send you a free trial bottle of my Syrup Pepsin. Address me Dr. W. B. Cald well, 513 Washington Street, Monticello, Illinois.
