Some grocers say they don't keep

have a stock on hand of other brands
containing only 12 oz In a package,
which they won't be able to sell flrst.
because Defiance contains 16 oz. for
the 8amo money.
Do you want 16 c. instead of 12 oz.
for same money? Then buy Defiance

A GOLD-LINED DEATH VALLEY.
Philippine Waste, Guarded by Death
Thoro is a Doath valloy In tho Phil
ippines ns woll as in tho United
States. It is situated In tho island of
Mindanno and although for many
years it has been known to contain
iarge quantities of gold tho trensuro
has been lying unclaimed becaueo of
the refusal of tho natives to go after
it. At last this famed and feared
valley has bceh compelled to glvo up
tho rich treasure which for ages It has
successfully guarded by its pall of
death-dealing gases. This valloy, which
true to Us name, has dealt death to
many a vqnturesomo searcher for tho
precious metal, is located In the
mountnln fastnesses of tho island and
according to tho theories of tho scien
tists it Is tho crater of what was
onco a great nnd violent volcano. Vol
canic gnseB of a most poisonous nn
turo still rise from tho depths of tho
valley and hang over it like a pall,
never passing away, and many natives
who havo attempted to go down into
tho vajley from tho mountains say
that never before has any mnn who
ventured Into Its unknown depths re
turned to tell of Its secrets. The dis
tance across tho valloy is only a few
miles, but tho bottom of It Is constant
ly concealed from view by tho dense
cloud of poisonous vnpor overhanging

To patch my -gaping fences.

And every last red cent I draw
To meet my summer's outing.

Which says that Nell Is coming!

That nothing elso shall queer me.

France and Old-Age Pensions.
Tho British consul at Calais tells,
In his annual report, of an effort to
deal with old-ago pensions. Twenty
three yonrs ago M. ChateluB formed a
society, tho rules of membership bo
ing a monthly payment of a franc, all
tho funds to bo Invested, nnd at the
end of twenty years tho Interest on
capital to bo equally divided among
members, and In each succeeding year
thoso who had been members for
twenty years to receive their equal
sharo of this interest. Tho present
rate of pension Is 14 8s. per year.
The membership now stands" at 347,
951, with a capital of over a million
and a half pounds. London Answers.

Baptism for the Dead.
Under tho caption "The Vitality of
Mormonlsm," Ray Stannard Baker
writes, Irv tho Juno Century:
"Another device which holds tho
people to the church Is tho curious
doctrine of baptism for the dead. It
Is believed that tho living may, by
being baptized, savo their relatives
who havb gono before. A man goes
to the templo and is solemnly im
mersed for his grandfather, who died
out of the faith; the grandfather's
name Is duly entered In tho book of
records; the graudson contributes a
fee, and comes tho next day to bo bap
tized for his grandmother, ana so on.
As tho result of this faith tho Mor
mons havo delved moro deeply Into
their genealogy, perhaps, 'than any
other class of Americans. I know of
several cases in which Mormons havo
gone to England on purpose to trace
out their genealogical tree, bringing
back long UMs of their ancestors, in
some cases going back to tho time of
William the Conqueror. On their re
turn to Utah they begin the proces3
of baptism, a dip for each ancestor."

Suggestions by Dr. Hartman. How
to Combat tho Nervous Depression
Incident to Warm Weather.
Nervousness is very common among"
women. This condition in duo to
nmomio ncrvo centers. Tho ncrvo ccn
ters nro tho reservoir for iervo vitality.
Thcso centers become bloodless or tho
want of proper nutrition.
This condition Is especially notlcenblo
during tho warm season. .Every sum
mer an army of invalids aro produced u
a direct result of weak nervous systems.
This could easily bo ovcrcomo by tho
uso of Fcmna. Poruna strikes nt tho
root of tho troublo by correcting tho
digestion. Perfect digestion furnishes
increased nutrition for tho ncrvo cen
ters. Perfectly digested f ood gives thcso
reservoirs of llfo a vitality which cre
ates strong, steady nerves, and In thin
manner fortifies and nourishca life.
society woman of Memphis, Tcnn., iu a
recent letter from 174 Alabama street,
writes: "To a Bociety woman whoso
nervous forco Is often taxed to tho
utmost from lack of rest and Irregular
meals, know of nothing which iaotao
much benefit as Perunn. I took It a
few months ago when I fcltiny strength
giving way, nnd it soon mado itaell
manifest In giving me new strength
and health." Miss Blanche Qrcy
Pc-ru-na Contains Na Narcotics.
Ono rcnaon why Peruna has found
fiermnncntuso In ho many homes is that,
t contains no narcotic of nny hind. Pe
runa Is perfectly harmless. It can bo
used any length of time without acquir
ing a drug habit. Perunn docs not pro
duco temporary results. It In perma
nent in lt effect.
It has no bad effect upon tho Bjstcra,
and gradually eliminates catarrh by re
moving tho cause of catarrh. Thcro
aro a multitude of homes Whero Peruna
has been used off and on for twenty
years. Such a thing could not bo pos
Biblo if Peruna contained any drugs of
a narcotic nature.
At this season of tho year wo aro
peculiarly liable to iuUammations of tho
stomach and boWels. It is tho part of
wisdom to learn how to cut tbcm Bhort

Poruna does this by iw peculiar power
