Which Mad* Sur-
geon’s Work Unnecessary.
Astoria, N. Y. — "For two years I
was feeling ill and took all kinds of
tonics. I waa get-
ing worse every day.
I had chills,my head
would ache, I was
always tired. I could
not walk straight
because of thepain
in my back and Ihad
pains in my stom-
ach. I went to a
doctor and he said I
must go under an
operation, but J. did
not go. I read in
the paper about
Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Com-
pound and told my husband about it. I
41 know nothing will help me but I
nwill try this.’ I found myself improv-
ing from the very first bottle, and in two
weeks time I waa able to sit down and
eat a hearty breakfast with my hus-
band, which I had not done for two years.
I am now in the best of health and
did not have the operation." — Mrs
John A. Koenig, 502 Flushing Avenue"
Astoria, N. Y.
Every one dreads the surgeon’s knife
and the operating table. Sometimes
nothing else will do; but many times
doctors say they are necessary when
they are not. Letter after letter comes
to the Pmkharn Laboratory, telling how
operations were advised and were not
performed; or,if performed,did no good,
but Lydia E.Pinkham’s Vegetable Com-
pound waa used and good health followed,
If you want advice write to

ment of Secretary of War Baker addressed to the governors of the states:
“Having In view the possibility of further aggression upon the territory
of the United Stutes and the necessity for the proper protection of that fron-
tier, the president hns thought proper to exercise the authority vested In him
by the Constitution and the laws and call out the organized militia nnd the
National Guard necessary ft>r that purpose.
*'I an# In consequence. Instructed by the president to call Into the service of
the United States through you, the following units of the organized militia
and the Natlonul Guard of the state of..................which the president
directs shall be assembled at the state mobilization point ............ (or at
the place to be designated to you by the commanding general, eastern depart-
ment), for muster Into the service of the United States.

•dnlmutn pence strength now prescribed for organized militia. Tin* maximum
strength at which organizations will be accepted and to which they should be
raised as soon ns possible Is prescribed tn section No. 2, “Tables of Organiza-
tion,” United States army.
“In case any regiment, battalion or sqnndron, now recognized as such,

muster to regular army organization tables, the organizations necessary to
complete such units rnay be moved to mobilization rump and there Inspected
under order* of the department commander to determine fitness for recognition
as organized by the war department.
"Circular 19, division ol militia affairs. ltFl4. prescribes the organization*

irS MERCURY! DANGER
“Dodson’s Liver Tone” Straightens You Up Better Than Salivating, Dangerous
Calomel and Doesn’t Make You Sick—Don’t Lose a Day’s Work-
Wonderful Discovery Destroying Sale of Calomel Here.
You're bilious! Your liver is sluggish! You
feci lazy, dizzy and all knocked out. Your head
is dull, your tongue is coated; breath bad; stomach
sour and bowels constipated. But don’t take sali-
vating calomel. It makes you sick, you may lose
a day’s work.
Calomel is mercury or quicksilver which causes
necrosis of the bones. Calomel crashes into sour
bile like dynamite, breaking it up. That's when
you feel that awful nausea and cramping.
If you want to enjoy the nicest, gentlest liver
and bowel cleansing you ever experienced just take
a spoonful of harmless Dodson’s Liver Tone to-
night. Your druggist or dealer sells you a 50
cent bottle of Dodson’s Liver Tone under my
personal money-back guarantee that each spoon-
ful will clean^ your sluggish liver better than a
d°sc of nasty calomel and that it won’t make
Dodson s Liver 1 one is real liver medicines
N ou’ll know it next morning because you will
wake up feeling fine, your liver will be working,
your headache and dizziness gone, your stomach
will he sweet and your bowels regular. You will
feel like working; you'll be cheerful; full of vigor
Dodson’s Liver Tone is entirely vegetable,
therefore harmless, and can not salivate. Give it
to your children. Millions of people are using
Dodson s Liver 1 one instead of dangerous calomel
now. Your druggist will tell you that the sale of
calomel is almost stopped entirely here.—Adv.
