Quick Way to Stop Them
Persistent, racking coughing, which
by rapidly weakening your entire sys
tem lays you open to more dangerous
infections, can be checked often with the first
dose of that old-time tried and proved remedy
-Dr. Bell’s Pine-Tar Honey. And there’s a
reason. Doctors say there is nothing like pine
tar to quickly loosen and remove the phlegm
and congestion which are the direct cause of
the coughing, while the honey both gives a
pleasant taste and helps soothe irritation. It
is often astonishing how quickly thiscombina
tion relieves the stubbornest cough.
But be sure you get the original Dr. Bell's
Pine-Tar Honey, and no substitute. Dr. Bell’s
has been known for over aquarterof acentury
as the best. It is scientifically compounded of
just the right proportions of pine -tar, honey
and other quick-acting healing ingredients
which the best doctors have found to aid in
quick relief. Contains no opiates or other
harmful drugs, so can be given even to young
children—fine for spasmodic croup. If you
want the best, a medicine that often relieves
the severest cough overnight, make sure you
get Dr. Bell’s. Only 30c at any good druggist’s.

Men and Money
Make This Bank Secure
THERE are two ways of measuring the
strength and standing of a bank. In the first
place monev resources —capital and surplus
give it financial strength.
In the second place —and perhaps even
more important—are men, the officers and
directors. They give the bank character,
determine and execute its policies.
This is a strong bank, a helpful bank be
cause it has ample resources, and a personnel
of proven character and ability.

T HERE IS positively no longer any
excuse for suffering the agonies
of rheumatism! Especially in the
autumn of your life, when the vital
organs weaken, impurities multiply
and linger in the muscles and joints,
as never before. It is now, just now,
when you cannot afford to guess. No
Here is a joyous fact which can
mean to you a fond farewell forever
to all the miseries, the tortures, the
body-twisting pains that you have
suffered from the demon of rheu
matism. It is a fact that rheumatism
means “blood poverty." It is a fact
with the increase of red-cells in your
blood, impurities are destroyed. It
is a fact that S.S.S. will help Na

S.S S. is one of the most powerful
blood cleansers in existence. Its re
sults in thousands of rheumatic
cases have been nothing short of
amazing! The medicinal ingredients
of S.S.S. are purely vegetable. This
is very important to remember! What
can be more inspiring, more won
derful than to see the shackles of
pain released from your struggling
body, swellings, lingering pains, stiff

your face pink with the old sweet
heart glow, your blood enriched and
your cheeks more plump as they used
to be. You can do it! Take S.S.S., the
