Mr. Becker says life is a Joy, without
constipation or stomach
*‘I had catarrh of the stomach and head
for three years. My stomach was so bad
that every time I ate anything sweet,
Buch as fruit or pastry, the burning hot
water would run out of my mouth. I
took a laxative every night.
“Since taking Milks Emulsion my bow-
els move regularly. I have now taken
ten bottles and have gained 10*4 pounds.
All my friends remark how fine I am
looking, and it seems a pleasure to live
again, without stomach trouble.”—Bert
Becker, Miami, Ohio.
Physios usually make slaves out of
their users, and weaken the bowels in-
stead of correcting them. Stomach trouble
in many cases is directly due to consti-

So Weak She Could Hardly Move,
Says Indiana Lady.—One Bottle
of Cardui Put Her on the
Road to Recovery.
Tangier, Ind.—“Four years ago this
Summer l was sick in bed,” writes Mrs.
Lillie McEhvee, of this place. “I had
been under the doctor’s care for five
weeks. ... I was pretty bad, and I
was just as nervous as I could be, . . .
I could not sleep at night until 10 or
12 o’cloekf When I would doze off
and wake up I would be all of a trem-
ble with nervousness.
“The doctor called my trouble
catarrh of the ... It gave me such
pains that at each one it would seem
that I could not bear another one.
Then I would chill . . . the pains
would just seem to shake me all over,
and the next day I would be so weak
I could hardly move. I would be so
utterly strengthless that it would seem
as if I were dying.
“After one of my bad spells . . .
and I had almost died, I picked up
the Home Treatment Book and decided
to try Cardui. Before I had taken a
whole bottle, I could sleep at night . ..
I don’t remember just how long, but in
a short time I was up and helping with
the work . . .”

A pessimist and an optimist were
discussing life from their different
viewpoints. “I really believe,” said
the former, “that I could make a bet-
ter world myself.”
“Sure!” returned the optimist.
“That’s what we are here for. Now,
let us get to work and do it.”—Boston

KILL MORE THAN 140
GREAT DESTRUCTION WROUGHT
IN MISSISSIPPI, ALABAMA AND
Birmingham, Ala.—A death list
which stands at more than 140 and a
property loss of many millions of dol-
lars- was the toll of a series of tor-

debris of its home.

the remainder of the eastern border
of the state, carrying destruction to
a dozen or more communities. About

corner of Alabama, the extreme force

C0UNTRY OF BEE KEEPERS NEEDED TO TALK OUT LOUD
In Liithuania the Production of Honey
Has Become an Important Na-
In Lithuania, when a bee stings a
man he turns the other cheek.
And almost literally, at that, because
it is a sin to kill a bee, and no one
ever commits that sin intentionally.
As a result of their natural fondness
for bees, Lithuanians, with the -growth
of their economic system, have devel-
oped bee raising from a general social
custom to an important industry.
Thousands of barrels of honey are ex-
ported from Lithuania annually.
Almost everyone in Lithuania has
at least one bee hive. Sometimes they
have swarms of thousands. But it is
