A TONIC LAXATIVE

A slinht condition of constipation may
lead to serious sluggishness of tho bowels,
biliousness, re-absorption of poisonous ma

would set matters right. This is why tha
remedy should always be kept handy by.
When once tho valuo of Pcruna as a
household remedy is understood no homo
would be without it. Cathartics, pills and
powders would be discarded. Irritating
tonics would be no longer taken. Alco
holic drinks would have no place. With a
few doses of Pcruna a vigorous appetite is
produced and if there be any sluggishness
of the bowels their function is gradually
Most laxatives are weakening in their
effect. A tonic laxativo guards against
this weakening effect. Until right living

all medicines arc superfluous, Peruna will

Mr. John B. Perkins, 22 Whiting St.,
Tlymouth, Mass., writes: "I think Po
runa is a number one medicine. I was
troubled with catarrh and bowel com
plaint. I tried several doctors, but could
only find temporary relief. I took Peruna
and am glad to say that it curea my ca

Nearly everybody is obliged more or
less to take a laxative. There aio of
course a few exceptions. A great many
people also need occasionally to tako a
tonic. Probably few households exist
that do not make use of tonics and
The remedy Poruna is a laxative
tonic. It not only operates as a gentle
laxative, but also as a tonic.
Tho benefit derived from such n
remedy is a great deal more in the
prevention of diseaso than in the cure.
After a person has really become sick,
'either with an acute or chronic ail
ment, the rule should be to employ a
physician, dr gome ono who can give tho
case his personal attention. But long be
fore this happens the person will complain
of this or that symptom, which is not se
vere enough to interfere with his regular
'activities. If at this placo before tho di-

Mississippi River Steamers Originated
Cognomen That Has Now Be
On tho Mississippi river In olden
days tho passenger steamboats were
very ornato affairs, vying with each
other in garish glory. Ono owner hit
on tho idea if naming his, steam
boat's cabinets instead of numbering
them. So he named them in honor of
the states of tho Union, each having
above tho door tho gilt title of some
state, tho big central cabin being
called tho "Texas," after tho largest
state. Other boat owners took up tho
idea, and thus tho word cabin was
gradually alternated by "state" room.
For years tho best cabin was still
known as tho Texas. Then that
sobriquet died with the ebbing glory
of tho old river steamers. But tho
word "stateroom" became incorporat
ed into our language, and in time even
broko into tho dictionary, as does
many another catch phrase. Not one
person in a thousand who occupies a
stateroom Uhowb tjio term onco meant
"a room turned for a state."

commandment that If any man knew
where ho wore, ho should show it,
that they might take him. Then it
was that ho camo. Roforo this on
different occasions ho had hidden him

cowardice or fear, but becauso his
