Everybody who has ever taken
calomel knows what a strong drug

as if it were a tired horse, and while
the Uver works harder for a little
while, it is soon weaker than ever.
Dodson's Liver-Tone is a vege-

effects. No restriction of habit or
diet necessary. For either children

ANKNT SUNDAY BASEBALL.
Holy Sabbath Desecrated by Com-
It is a lamentable fact that in the
march of commercialism the holy
Sabbath has come to be a day of rev-
elry and money making among t.ho
|)eople of this Christian nation.
There is time yet to arrest this on-
ward tendency toward the searing
of the conscience, the annulling of
the finer feelings, and the forgetful-
ness of the Supreme Being.
The many arguments in favor of
Sunday baseball should be met with
sledge hammer strokes. Yes*, even
the Supreme Court, of Texas, voted
Sunday baseball admiesable. But

Yes, the national medical fra-
ternity said, if the factory and
working people can have this re-
creation at no other time, let them
have it on Sunday.
Must God's institutions be chang-
ed to meet the demands of the cap-
italists? No, they will not be chang-
ed, e'ven If it takes the sinking of a
nation to retain their establishment.
It is argued that our nation's law-
makers, congressmen, can be seen by
the scores at Sunday baseball games
at the capital city. Have not con-
gressmen, at large, established a
reputation for visiting more ques-
tionable places than most any other
class of men? Many exceptions can
be made, especially could Texas point
this moral now. But it must be
from these representatives that the
reformation comes, or that the peo-
ple demand that it comes. It would!
not take a decade to create senti-
ment strong enough for a Saturday
afternoon holiday for the working
class, and then the Sabbath could,
indeed, become a day of rest and re-
flection, that God in H1b infinite wis-
dom, saw the human family needed.
A day for the patronizing of His
sanctuaries and the remembering of
His wonderful love. Let us stop
this maddening pace and realize what
the results must be from desecrating
the Lord's Day. When we destroy
the Sabbath day institution, what

The following letter from Mrs. Orvillo Uoek will prove how unwise
; is for women to submit to the dangers of n surgieal ope ration when it
may l)e avoided Ly taking Lydia E. Hnkham's Vegetable Compound.
She was four weeks in the hospital and eume home suffering
worse than before. Then after all that suffering Lydia K Fink-
ham's Vegetable Compound restored her health.
HERE IS HER OWN STATEMENT.
Paw Paw, Mich.—'"Two years ago I suffered
very severely with a displacement — I could not
be on my feet for a long time. My physician,
treated me for several months without much re-
lief. and at last sent me to Ann Arbor for an op-
eration. I was there four weeks and came home
suffering worse than before. My mother advised
me to try lA'dia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-
pound, and I did. To-day I am well and strong
and do all my own housework. I owe my health
to Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and
advise every woman who is afflicted with any
female complaint to try it."—Mrs. Okvilub Rook,
K. 11. No. 5, Paw Paw, Mich.
" THERE NEVER WAS A WORSE CASE."
Rockport, Ind.—" There never was a worse case of women's ills
than mine, and I cannot begin to tell you what I suffered. For over
two years I was not able to do anything. I was in l)ed for a month
and the doctor said nothing but an operation would cure me. My
father suggested Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound; so to
please him I took it, and I improved wonderfully, so I am able to
travel, ride horseback, take long rides and never feel any ill effects
from it. I can only ask other suffering women to give Lydia E. Pink-
hum's Vegetable Compound a trial before submitting to an operation."
—Mrs. Makuarkt Meredith, R. F. D. No. 3, Rockport, Ind.
We will pay a handsome reward to any person who will prove to us
that these letters are not genuine and truthful—or that either of these
women were paid in any way for their testimonials, or that the orig-
inal letter from each did not come to us entirely unsolicited.
For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has been the standard remedy for fe-
male ills. No one sick with woman's ailments
does justice to herself who will not try this fa-
mous medicine, made from roots and herbs, it
has restored so many suffering women to health.
