E. Ayers, 6 Sabin
St., Montpelier,
Vt., says:
"I was afflicted
with constipation
and biliousness for
years, and at times became so bad I
would become unconscious. I have been
found In that condition many times.
Physicians did not seem to be able to
d# me any good. I would become
weak and for days at a time could do
no work. Not long ago I got a box
of Dr. Miles' Laxative Tablets, and
after using them found I had never
tried anything that acted in such a
mild and effective manner! I believe
I have at last found the remedy that
suits my case."
Thousands of people are sufferers
from habitual constipation and
while possibly realizing something
of the danger of this condition, yet
neglect too long to employ proper
curative measures until serious ill
ness often results. The advice of
all physicians is, "keep your bowels
clean," and it's good advice.
Dr. Miles' Laxative Tablets are

A Plunge Through a Tree and a Rifle
Shot Just In Time.
Captain C. H. Stigand tells in his
book, "Hunting the Elephant In
Africa,'' of a narrow escape lie had
from a young bull elephant. The
animal had charged the hunting
Party, with the usual result that
ihe natives fled at their best speed.
He dodged sharply i'rom the path
oi' the enemy and tripped over a
fallen tree, dropping his rifle and
just managing to seize it by the
muzzle as the elephant was about
to tread on it. lie then dived head
foremost into the branches of the
fallen tree.
"1 made frantic efforts to crawl
through, but a stout branch resisted
my progress, and at the same mo

taken out ol my hands, and 1 found
Matola, who had counted the shots,
standing beside me, serving me the
second rille as a waiter might offer
a dish. By some oversight it had
not been loaded, for 1 had given
strict orders that none of my men
were ever to load or unload my
rifles. Being a good soldier, Matola
had not disobeyed this order, even
under these extreme circumstances,
but had gone the nearest to loading
it he could.
"The breech was open, and he was
holding the clip in position with
his thumb just over the magazine.
All I had to do was to press it down
as I.-tdök. hold of the rifle close to
the boll and I was read)' to fire.
The elephant was turning round
and I shot him in the brain, drop

Deaf Wit.
Thomas A. Edison said apropos
of deafness:
"Deafness has its advantages.
My own deafness enables me to con
centrate my thoughts as I'd never
be able to do if distracted by noise
and conversation. It helps me to
sleep too.
"Some men through deafness ac
tually get a reputation for wit.

Penal Servitude For Life.
It is a popular error in England
that penal servitude ""for life"]
means in reality "for twenty years."
Of course it is no such thing. Penal
servitude for life means precisely
what it says, neilher more nor less.
True, all life sentences are recon
sidered at ihe end of twenty years,
and if the coin id's conduct has
been all that it ought to be during
the whole of that long period he
may be tenlalixelv released on a
ticket of leave. lint obviously that
is a very different I hing from let
