blessed with a baby. He met his

usual salutations he asked after
the baby’s health. The lady who
was quite deaf, and suffering
with the grippe, thought he was
asking after her cold, and an
swered that although she usually
had one every winter, this was
the worst one she had ever had;
it kept her awake at night and
at first confined her in bed.
Then noticing that the news
paper man was getting ner

his looks that he was going to
have one just like hers and ask
ed him to go in and sit down.

You Need a Tonic
There are times in every woman’s life when she
needs a tonic to help her over the hard places.
When that time comes to you, you know what tonic
to take —Cardui, the woman’s tonic. Cardui is com
posed of purely vegetable ingredients, which act
gently, yet surely, on the weakened womanly organs,
and helps build them back to strength and health.
It has benefited thousands and thousands of weak,
ailing women in its past half century of wonderful
success, and it will do the same for you.
You can’t make a mistake in taking
The Woman’s Tonic
Miss Amelia Wilson, R. F. D. No. 4, Alma, Ark.,
says: “I think Cardui is the greatest medicine on earth,
for women. Before I began to take Cardui, I was
so weak and'nervous, and had such awful dizzy
spells and a poor appetite. Now I feel as well and
as strong as I ever did, and can eat most anything.”
Begin taking Cardui today. Sold by all dealers.

The reason Foley Kidney Pills act
so satisfactorily is because they neu
tralize and dissolve the poisonous
waste matter that remains in the
blood because the kidneys do not
do their work properly in filtering
and casting out from the system uric
acid and other poisons.
Relief usually follows In a few
days and such symptoms as pain in
the sides or back, stiff joints, sore
muscles, rheumatism, too frequent

' CALOMEL? HORRIBLE!
Calomel is Quicksilver and
Acts Like Dynamite on
Calomel loses you a day! You
know what calomel is. It’s mer
cury ; quicksilver. Calomel is dan
gerous. It crashes into sour bile
like dynamite, cramping and sick
ening you. Calomel attacks the
bones and should never be put
into your system.
When you feel bilious, sluggish,
constipated and all knocked out
and believe you need a dose of
dangerous calomel just remember
that your druggist sells for 50
cents a large bottle of Dodson’s
Liver Tone, which is entirely veg

is a perfect substitute for calo
mel. It is guaranteed to start
your liver without stirring you up
inside, and cannot salivate.
Don’t take calomel! It makes
you sick the next day; it loses
you a day’s work. Dodson’s Liv
