If a cough oboe gets into your
svstem it acts on every muscle
ana fibre of the body ahd makes
— yog ache all over; "It'^specially
affects the intestines and makes
you constipated, so in order to
.get rid of a cold thoroughly and
without delay you; should not
take anything that will tend to
constipate. Kennedy's Laxative
Cough Syrup acts upon the
I bowels and thereby drives the
\ cold out of the system. It pon-

Why Sifter from Rhe«matism?
Do you know that rheumatic
paips can be relieved? If you
doubt this just try one applica-
tion of Chamberlain’s Pain Balm.
It may not give you relief from
pain but will make rest and sleep
possible, and that certainly means
a great deal to any one afflicted
with rheumatism. For sale by
Distinction in Printing
Commands results which far out-
weigh the difference in cost be-
tween It and the ordinary class

The Leader has just received

“We are,” says* B. F. Yoakuih
ojf the Frisco in an article con-
tributed to the Saturday Even-
ing Post, “in a state Of read-
justment of our business'jfiff&irs
as well as an adjustment pf our
business met hods. Any man re-
sponsible for a corporation’s
policy who cannot read the
signs of the times suffici
t be a
g uStiMMip Jure i»
blind to what is going on about
him.” Mr. Yoakum never utr
tered a truer statement and the
leading men of the country are
showing &y . the way they are
shaping themselves and the big*
interests of which they are the
head that they fully recogpim
the force of the statemeet. A
change for the better is working
all through the country and it
makes one loo)c to/ the future
hopefully. The country is all
right and its resources are grow-
ing eyery year. The only blot
has been the fact that some of
our big men have been pouring
water Into securities without any
limit and pocketing the millions If,
«M8ion and^ uses every effort for the
advaocement of her itudaZa.
