—How to End it
To quickly end a dangerous cough
there is a very simple treatment which
fives almost instant relief and often
breaks the cough entirely in 24 hours.
Thistreatment is based on the famous
Dr. King's New Discovery for Coughs.
You take just one teaspoonful and hold
it in your throat for 15 or 20 seconds
before swallowing it. The prescription
has a double action. It not only soothes
and heals soreness and irritation, but
also loosens and removes the phlegm
and congestion which are the rtal cause
of the coughing. So the worst cough
usually disappears quickly.
Dr. King's New Discovery is for
coughs, chest colds, bronchitis, spas-
modic croup, etc. Fine for children, too
—no harmful drugs. Very economical,
as the dose is only one teaspoonful. A t

WILLIAM F. KLAUS
Taylor, Texas, Jan. 11.-—William F.
Klaus, 62, died at the home of his
daughter, Mrs. Louis Krempin, Satur-
day morning. Klaus was stricken ill
about four months ago with paralysis
and gradually grew worse until the
end came Saturday. Klaus was born
in Comal County, near New Braunfels,
in 1863. He was married twice, both
his first and his second wives having
preceded him to the grave. Two chil-
dren by his first wife survive him as
follows: Theodore Klaus, of Austin,
Mrs. Louis Krempin, Taylor. He is
also survived by six brothers and one
sisters. Klaus moved to Taylor 35
years ago from Comal County, and
this city has been his home ever since.
The funeral services were held Sun-
da;J afternoon, conducted by Rev.
\Theodore Drees, reetor of St. Mary's
Catholic Church. Services were held at
the Forwood funeral home and at St.
Mary's Catholic Church, followed by
burial in the Catholic Cemetery.
What is life imprisonment? Im-
prisonment for life is the obvious an-
swer, but it is far from being correct.
In Oregon, according to the Portland
Oregonian, the average term served
in the penitentiary by persons sen-
tenced to life imprisonment is seven
and a half years, and it is a reason-
able assumption that this would be
true of other states in which life Im-
prisonment is the legal penalty for
Here is to be found one ground
upon which people uphold the death
penalty. They are not particularly
anxious to put murderers to death,
but they are anxious to make it im-
possible for them to commit murders,
and at the same time to demonstrate
to would-be-murderers that the penal-
ty is severe and certain. They would
be perfectly willing to substitute life
imprisonment for capital punishment
provided they felt certain that the im-
prisonment would be for life. As It
happens they fear that it will not be,
and the fear is justified. The force
of public sentiment may be powerful
enough at the moment to send a man
to jail for life, but once that is ac-
complished, public sentiment loses run
of him. His Iflrienda and llawyers
exert any amount of prestige to get
the prisoner relased, and there is
i)o organized sentiment against such
action, the result being that he is
pardoned or paroled without the public
being aware of what is going on.
Nine times out of ten the criminal
resumes his criminal career, and the
would be criminals decide that the
law is so lenient that it need not be
feared.—New Bedford Evening Stan-

The Rooster is a gentleman chicken
and serves as press agent for the hen. |
When the hen has laid an egg the j
rooster tells the world. Nearly axl
well-advertised products are excellent
and the egg is no exception. The j
contents arc not touched by human
hands and the sanitary wrapper ha™
no equal. Things spoil the contents, ]
however, despite the wrapper, and as j
a result the eggs are divided into thret. j
classes: "Strictly fresh eggs, fresn
eggs, and eggs." When those of the
first class are worth GO cents per
dozen, those of the second are wortn
40 cents per dozen and those of the :
third class are not worth a darn. An
ancient egg is useful only in political j
and dramatic criticism.
When the rooster is very young,
nobody knows whether he will be a
rooster or a hen; but in a short time
he begins to develop spur and comb
that confesses his sex, and is then
called a frying chicken. If he is a
very small rooster he may live to a
ripe old age and then be deprived ot
his feathers, head and feet, and ma>
be called a frying chicken still. Very
large roosters that live to ripe old
age may be treated the same way and
The rooster hfis many traits in
common with the man. He fights
when required to repel an invader; h<.»
affects the mannerisms of an im-
portant citizen while at home and vs
cowed in strange surroundings, an<.t
when he gets atop a fence or in any
manner above his fellows, he crow.-j
Crowing is offensive, as a rule, but
in the rooster's case it is not objec-
tionable, for he is ready at any timo
to back it up with his spurs. When j
he is engaged in an argument witn j
another rooster he does not hug his j
opponent to avoid punishment, and if
the enemy's prowess and strategy
drives him from the field he will re-
tire to a little distance and then throw
back to proclaim his spirit unbroken.
The rooster does no useful labor,
but he begans crowing about 4:00
a. m., and everybody with pep enougfi
to wake up and" begin strutting his
stuff at this hour in the morning de-
serves the respect of mankind.—Bal-

About the nearest to Scotland that
the average Scotch whiskey gets is
the label on the bottle, according to
George A. Hamilton, federal prohibi-
tion administrator in Houston. Here
is the way Mr. Hammons says the
average Scotch whiskey is made.
Ordinary corn whiskey is purchased
by the wholesaler or distributor ana
mixed with water, oak extract, cara-
mel coloring, glycerine, and perhaps
a few other things such as red pep-
per. It is then put in bottles bearing
the Scotch label, which can be obtain-
ed from a number of shops in th"
country that specialize in false label
printing, and retailed at from $8 to
$10 a quart. Before it was bottled
it sold for perhaps $(5 per gallon.
Those who can not tell the difference
between the Texas made product and
real whiskey at the time they drinrc
it have no difficulty in telling the dif-
ference the next clay.—Lufkin News.

I would scream out, my back hurt
me so bad.
"My husband got me some
Cardui and I took two bottles.
Very shortly after I began to take
it I could notice I felt better. I be-
gan to get stronger. My appetite
was improving and I could see th&t
I was much better.
"After I had finished the second
bottle I was able to be up and do all
my own housework, so of course
1 think Cardui is fine. It is the
best tonic for women that I know
anything about, and I am glad to
recommend it. Not long a;;o I
told a lady friend of mine about ii
and it did her as much good as Ii
has done for me."

We are going to assume that you
married John. And further, we are
stating that John is your job, dear
lady, and that you had considerable
to do in choosing him, because ther.
were others—you remember how
Henry or Charlie or Frank courted
you. And now that you have John,
do you make fun of him ?
You don't often hear a man be-
littling his work, the position he
holds, the business he is in. He j
doesn't make fun of it before his'
friends, suggest how little it amounts
to, after all. It is his business, the
chances are he went into it with his
eyes open, and any such line of talk
would naturally reflect badly on his
own ability and judgment.
But you do frequently hear a wo- j
man making fun of her husband be- j
] fore people, making light of his cap-:
' acity, his brains, perhaps his morals, j
And behind his back, to her friends,''
l you will find her indulging in the ;
j same pastime.
j Before friends you will hear her
say: "Poor John! I wonder he has j
done as well as he. has when he lets
everyone run over him the way he
does. No get up and go."
j But John is indisputably hers—.
her job, if you want to call it that.
If John is as bad as she pretends, '
and that was the best she could do, j
the least she can do is to keep still j
about it. j
But no, she goes on, silence not j
being her long suit.
"If you want plums you have to
shake the tree. Poor John, he could-
n't shake a stick, let alone a tree."
Of course, John might have been
a greater success had he married
some other woman—one who would
have proved a real help-mate. Per-
haps she hasn't thought of that.
John requires help. He is a clean,
moral man, but the idivorcc court
records arc full of cases where moral
men have gone wrong simply be-
cause they were "hitched up" to sucn
