Drain-Food Noiist-iise, Another ridiculous food fad has been branded by the mosteompetentauthorl ties. They have dispelled the silly notion that one kind of food Is needed for brain, another for museles, and still another lor bones. A correct diet will not only nourish a particular part of the body, but it will sustain every oth er part. Yet, however good your food may be, its nutriment is destroyed by Indigestion or dyspepsia. You must prepare for their appearance or pre vent their coming by taKlng regular doses of Green's August Flower, the favorite medicine of the healthy mill ions. A few doses aids digestion, stim ulates the liver to healthy action, puri fies the blood and makes you feel bou yant and vigorous. You can get Dr. G. G. Green's reliable remedies at W. I Benedict's. Get Green's Special Almanac. Half f Happiness , depends upon the stomach. If you have do constipation, indigestion, chronic sick headache, summer com plaint or any other trouble of the stom ach or bowels, you ought to be happy usually are. Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin rids you of theeo ills. It's pleasant and powerful. It doesn't cost $1 to try It, 10 doses 10 cent, at L. O. Cusbing's. Mrs. T. Bnddleman of Parshallvllle, Mich., wa troubled with palt rheum for thirteen years and had tried a num ber of doctors without relief. After two applications of Banner Salve, her bands became better and In a short time was entirely cured. Beware of substitutes. W. I. Benedict. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure Is not a mere etlmulent to tired nature. It affords the stomach eompleto and absoluto rest by digesting the food you eat. You don't have to diet but can enjoy all the good food you want. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure instantly relieves that distressed feeling after eating, giving you new life and vigor. W. I. Benedict. When suffering from racking cough, take a dose of Foley's Honey and Tar. The soreness will bo relieved and a warm, grateful feeling and healing of the parts affected will bo experienced. W. I. Benedict. CONCERNING FISH. ow to Avoid r.rror In Selection nnd I'rrpuriit Ion. In view ef the popular belief In the danger to be feared from eating poison ous lish or from ptomaines contained in lish, the conclusions arrived at by food specialists under the United States department of agriculture he roine of Interest. While there are sev eral species of fish which are actually poisonous, declare the experts, such fish nre mostly confined to tropical waters and are seldom found In the United States. Fish may contain par asites, sotn" of which are Injurious to man. These are, however, destroyed by the thorough cooking to which fish Is usually subjected. The formation of ptomaines quite generally accompanies putrefaction, and t licit fore great care should be taken to cat fish only when It Is In perfectly good condition. Fish which has been frozen ami after thaw ing kept for a time before It Is cooked la especially likely to contain Injurious ptomaines. Canned fish should never be allowed to remain long in the can after opening, but should be used at once, on account of the possibility of danger from the combined action of the can contents and oxygen of the air upon the lead of the solder or the can Itself. Most physiologists regard fish as a particularly desirable food for persons of sedentary habits, as it usually con tains less fat than Is found in meat. In digestibility It ranks with lamb. The leaner lish, such as cod, haddock, perch, pike, blucfish, etc., are more readily digested than the fatter kinds, such as trout, salmon, shad and mackerel. How to .Make fSrnpe Juice. To prepare grape juice heat ripe grapes over a slow fire until the juice flows readily. Just before they reach the lulling point remove them from the fire and crush, squeeze nnd strain them. Add to the juice one pound of sugar fur every quart. Keturn the mixture to the stove ami bring gently, to a boll. Remove, bottle at once and seal. Ilntv to Fry Onion. Fried onions as a garnish to beef steak are. if bked at all. a favorite dish. At most tables the onions nre served n greasy, blackened mass, often half raw, altogether unpleasing to view nnd by no means digestible. This Is because most cooks cook onions In a pan with a little butter, a method that cannot by any skill produce a satisfactory result. Try the next time another way. Slice the onions and soak the slices in milk for at h ast ten minutes. Then dip them In Hour and immerse In boiling fat for six or seven minutes. Have the fat heated to the point that a bit of bread thrown in will brown Instantly. The slices will not remain Intact, but will cook through and will not turn black. Remove with a skimmer and drain on brown paper, placing around the steak. Chas. It. Weesmar, Evanston, 111., writes: 'My boy 2,l years old had a scvero cold which refused to yield to any treatment until we tried Foley's Honey and Tar. He was completely cured before using one bottle." Take none but Foley's. W. I. Benedict. Every woman In the country ought to know about mother's friend Those who do know about it wonder how they ever got along without it. It has robbed child birth of its terrors for many a young wife. It has preserved her girlish figure and saved her much suffering. It is an external lini ment and carries with it therefore, absolutely no danger of upsetting the system as drugs taken intern ally are apt to do. It is to be rubbed into the abdomen to soften and strengthen the muscles which are to bear the strain. This means much less pain. It also prevents morning sickness and all of the other discomforts of pregnancy. A druggist of Macon, Ga., says: "I have sold a large quantity of Mother's Friend and have never known an instance where it has failed to produce the good results claimed for it." A prominent lady of Lam berton. Ark., writes: "With my first six children 1 was in labor from 24 to 30 hours. After using Mother's Friend, my seventh was born in 4 hours."
