“Heap Big Mileage” results in much praise
from the members of the Savage “Tribe." We
are proud of having received hundreds of
letters like the following:
12,400 miles and going strong.
“H.ve driven to date 12.401 miles, and bjr the looka of the
casing it should go 5,000 miles yet. It is a Savage."—A. J.
Kellogg, Los Angeles.
Over 10,000 miles. '
"Have used a Savage Tire for 254 years—haye made 10,000
miles. It is still good for 2,500 more."—D. Q. Durbin, El
15.000 mile*, still in use.
"July 12, 191$, purchased Savsge Non-Skid tire. February 4,
1917, was still in use, while on opposite wheel we had worn
out two other standard makes of tires—Savage haa given
15.000 miles.”—George & Co., Lincoln, Nebraska.
11.000 miles, Savages all round.

Calomel salivates f It’s mercury.
Calomel acts like dynamite on a
■luggish liver. When calomel comes
into contact with sour bile it crashes
into it, causing cramping and nausea.
If you feel bilious, headachy, con-
stipated and all knocked out, just go
to your druggist and get a bottle of
Dodson’s Liver Tone for a few cents,
which is a harmless vegetable sub-
stitute for dangerous calomel. Take
a spoonful and if it doesn’t start
your liver and straighten you up
better and quicker than nasty calomel
and without making you sick, you
just go baok and get your money.
If you take calomel today you’ll bo
sick and nauseated tomorrow; be-

GOMANS MASSING 6REATEST ARMY '
OF WAR ON WESTERN FRONT
Secretary of War Baker at
Washington, in his weekly re-
view issued Monday, says that
Germany has massed her great-
est army of the war on the Wes-
To meet this menace the Unit-
ed States must speed up its mili-
tary preparations, the secretary
adds, with the warning that the
enemy is preparing to put into
execution in France plans which
he has been maturing since the
defeat of the Russian armies ear-
ly in the|war.
Peace negotiations with Rus-
sia have permitted the massing
of Germans on the Western front
for that purpose, says the Secre-
It is the apparent intention of
the Germans to start a gigantic
offensive in the West before the
United States has landed an ar-
my of appreciable size. No one,
outside of the military board,
knows how many men the Unit-
ed States now has in France. It
mays be a farce of 250,000, or
Whenever Germany starts her
offensive no doubt the full Amer-
ican force, whatever it is, will
be held in readiness as reserves.

An interesting wedding of
this week was solemnized
Sunday afternoon at 5 o’clock
by Rev. Ira L. Parraok at the
Ferguson home in the Live
Oak community, uniting in
marriage Miss Lula Ferguson

KICKING UP THE OUST OF AGES
How many of us realize what
wondrous scenery ther4 is to be
found in many sections of this
country—especially if one is wil-
ling to desert the usual by-waya
and seek out the devious paths
leading to something reaily
worth while. The Navajo In-
dian country in the great south-
west offers a splendid opportuni-
ty to the automobile tourist; a
trip that will long be remem-
bered for its unusual scenery and
The vast Navajo country con-
tains many ruins of pre-historic
cliff dwellings in the beautiful
Canyon de Chelly and Canyon de
Muerte. One of these ruins,
the White House, is especially
interesting,” writes A. L. West-
gard in the December issue of
MoToR. “Part of this region is

they stood, and where they are
now found, mineralized, millions
of years later. The Petrified

they are fortunate who have bet
one and get throug with it quick-
ly and without any serious con-
sequences. Take Chamberlain’s
Cough Remedy and observe the
directions with each bottle, and
you are likely to be one of the
fortunate ones. The worth and
merit of this remedy has been
fully proven. There are many
families who have always used it
for years when troubled with a
cough or cold, and with the very
best results. It only cost a quar-

of acres, which in coloring and
extent surpasses Kail similar de-
posits in the world. As one ap-

plentiful and destructive than
usual next crop season.
