As a Spring Tonic to Get '1 adViie ail Athletes about to go in training to try a bottle of Pe-ru-na." I. W. Glenister. dtuut uiemsior, Ouauinluu 34 m uu - Swim Thrujih the Micuigaa Whirlpool Rapids. PE-RU-NA Renovates, Regulates, Restores a System Depleted by Catarrh. John W. Gleniater, of Providence, R. I., champion long distance swimmer of America, has performed notable feats in this country and England. He has used Peruna as a tonic and gives his opinion of it in the following letter: New York. The Pervma Medicine Company, Columbus, Ohio: Gentlemen "This spring for the : : first time I have taken two bottles of : : Peruna, and, as it has done me a : ; great deal of good, I feel as if I : ought to say a good, word for its : worth. "During the springtime for the last : : few years, I have taken several kinds of ' ; spring tonics, and have never received : any benefit whatever. 1 lus year, i through the advice of a friend, I have : tried Peruna and it has given satisfac- : ; bon. "I advise aB athletes who are about : to eo in training to try a bottle, for it : : certainly gets the system in good 1 shape. Yours truly, I JOHN W. GLENISTER. Odd Animal Tjaws. When a dog was unlawfully killed in countries differing so widely as Ger many and Arabia the owner of the an imal used to be indemnified in the fol lowing manner: The dog was hung up by the tail, with the point of its muz zle touching the ground, and the man who had committed the offense was obliged to pour over It corn or flour until the carcass was completely hid . den by the heap. This heap then be came the property of the man who owned the dog. Ia Syria there was. a specially curi ous variation, for If it were a street dog that was killed the flour was made into bread and given to its fel lows. No doubt this arose from the value atttached in those old parts to street dogs as scavengers. By the old Welsh laws of Howel the damages for killing an animal belonging to another were assessed in the same odd manner-. Notes on the May Century. General attention is being called more ana more to wnat seems to be a widespread religious awakening. Now it ia Australia or Wales or New Zea land that is affected ; then amazing re ports come from Korea; next, perhaps, are extraordinary returns from Los An gelea, Atlanta or Pittsburg. These conditions will be discussed , by Henry E. Elliot in the May Century under the title of "Tlje World-wide Spiritual AwaKemng." Mistaken. Kindaeea. Jack Hello, old man! Awfully glad to see you.

OLD 8 ORES SilS Nothing is more offensive than an old sore lArAfiUiLrvwU that refuses to heal. Patiently, day after day, it is treated and nursed, every salve, powder, etc., that is heard of is tried, but does no good, until the very sight of it grows offensive to the sufferer and he becomes disgusted and mor bid. They are not only offensive,' but dangerous, because the same germ that produces cancerous ulcers is back of every old sore.

THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA, CAm PE-RU-NA the System in Good Shape uu vjai .i.n .e e ATHLETES realize the importance of keeping in good bodily trim. The digestion must be good, the cir culation perfect, sleep regular and enough of it. If the -slightest catarrhal condition of lungs or stomach is allowed to re main, 'neither digestion nor sleep will be strength-sustaining. Those who lead very active lives, like athletes, with good muscular development, find the spring months especially tryii g. Athletes every where praise Peruna because they, of all men, appreciate the value of a tonic that dispels phys ical depression. The vocation of some men may allow them to endure the depressing feelings ir ddent to spring weather, but the athle e must never allow himself to get "under t weather. He must keep in the "pink of ceadl tion" all the time. In order to do this he must avail himself of a spring tonic upon which he can rely. Therefore Athletes are especially friend ly toward Peruna. Peruna never fails them. Man to Be Disease Proot It has already been suggested that the appendix should be removed from every infant as jl routine measure. But this is dearly insufficient, says the British Medical . Journal. The surgery of the future must include far more than this. The tonsils and ; turbinate bones of the nose must be cut out, because they may harbor germs. What Arbuthnot Lane calls the "human cesspool" (that is, the large intestine), must be removed along with a considerable part of the upper portion of the alimentary canal, be cause it won't be needed when we be gin to live on M. Berthelot's tabloids and pills. ' The , too readily decaying teeth will be pulled out in early life and the germ-propf store variety In serted. The failing human eye will be anticipated by spectacles in early youth. Deficient moral sense and de generacy will be treated by ventilation of the brain and removal of the offend ing areas. Thus protected against the perils of civilization, the man of the coming centuries will be. able in his journey throught life to defy the countless ene mies ..that seek to rob him of health sans "teeth, sans eyes,' sans taste, sans everything.

The sheriff was standing vn the corner with a large brass key in his hand. "What's that big key for?" asked the Inquisitive person. "That," answered the sheriff, "is the key to a clock factory.

In the six years of tbe country's greatest prosperity, from 1897 to 1903, average prices of breadstuSs advanced 5 per cent, meats 23.1 per cent, dairy and garden products 50.1 percent., and clothing 24.1. All these were products of the farmer and stockman, who profited more than any other "lass of the community by these advances. The nv'ner benefitted 42.1 per cent, by tbat advance in the average price of metals. Ttie only decrease in the average prices of commodities in that period was in railway freight rates, which decreased from .798 per ton-mile in 1897, to .763 in 1903, a loss of 4.4 per cent. The report of the Interstate Commerce com mission shows that the average increase in the pay of railroad employes in that period was a trifle above 8.5 per cent. A liire-Saver.
