A. Kieso, 596 North Avo., Aurora, 111.
The great number of unsolicited tes

proof of tho value of Lydia E. Pink

A. F. Thorn, the representative of 83
per cent of America's railroads be
fore tho Newlauds committee, said at
a dinner:
"The railroads nre not Utopian.
They know the kind of world It Is, nnd
they don't ask Impossibilities.
"In fact, the railroads of late years
have come to have the rather

It is cruel to force nauseating,
harsh physic into a
sick child.
Look back at your childhood days.
Remember tho "doso" mother Insisted
on castor oil, calomel, cathartics.
How you hated them, how you fought
against taking them.
With our children It's different.
Mothers who cling to tho old form of
physic simply don't realize what they
do. The children's revolt Is well-founded.
Their tender Httlo "Insldos" are
Injured by them.
If your child's stomach, liver and
bowels need cleansing, give only doll
clous "California Syrup of Figs." Its
action is positive, but gentle. Millions
of mothers keep this harmless "fruit
Iaxatlvo" handy; they know children
lovo to tako it; that it never fails to
clean tho liver and bowels and sweet
en tho stomach, and that a teaspoonful
given today saves a sick child tomor
row. Ask at tho store for a EO-cent bottle
of "California Syrup of Figs," which
has full directions for babies, children
of all ages and for grown-ups plainly
on each bottle. , Adv.

White House Is a Most Desirable Residence
WASHINGTON. The White House Is far nnd nwny the most desirable
residence in the national capital. (This In spite of tho nobility of vice
presidents, which, of course, obliges them to tho generous tradition of Fill
more, who snld, when ho was called
to thejOxecutlve mansion, "This Is my
first 'misfortune.") It Is tho most per

history of many of our American
Ideals, says Harrison Ithodcs in Har
per's Magazine.
The White House, as is natural,
Is the constant theater of the conflict
to bo observed everywhere In Anil-rl
can life between oitr wish to have an
aristocracy and our wish not to. But,
on tho whole, the disinterested observer must adjudge victory to our deep
seated democracy which makes It really unsuitable that tho White House
should ever be exactly fnshlonnblc.
We never forget not only Hint tho presidential residence Is our home, but
Hint tho president in It is our mnn. The almost Utopian democracy of public
receptions at tho White House Is both engaging nnd picturesque. In the
early days congressmen used to come to them with bowlc knives In their high,
cowhide boots, and In Jackson's time, gunrds with stout sticks beat back the
guests while the food was being fetched from the kitchens. Then an .eve
ning party had all the charm of a riot. A diplomat complained not so long
ago that even at tho exclusive receptions for the corps, the American young
ladles surreptitiously cut all the buttons off his clothes for souvenirs.
Another diplomat, new to these democratic shores, arriving lato for n
New Year's receptlou, was astonished to find that the negro hackninn who
had driven him to the White House had slipped In ahead of him and was tho
first to grasp the presidential hand I

Valuable Government Maps Offered at Low Price
TnE project of covering the 3,000,000 square miles of the United States

The feeding of the dairy cow should

Don't Walt Until Animals Commence

(By Q. H. GLOVEIt, Colorado Agricul

Calves should bo vncclnated for

regular chore, and do not wait until
they begin to die before getting ready.
Tho period of ordinary susceptibility
ranges from three months to two and
one-half years. Most of the vaccine
on the market Is reliable and the un
satisfactory results are usually due
to carelessness on tho part of the
farmer In not following directions In
using It.

Frog Hide In Skin Grafting.
A successful method of skin graft
ing, in which frog sldn is lined Instead
of human skin, ns a covering for slow
healing wounds, Is described In tho
nrltlsh Medical Journal by Cnpt. H.
W. M. Kendall. Wounds In which tho
skin hns been destroyed heal natural
ly with a contracting scar, which Is
often unsightly and Inconvenient, but
this method leaves a neat and supple
scar. Frog sldn can be obtained In
abundance at tho front. Tho -loose
skin on tho Inner side of tho frog's
leg is snipped off with scissors, spread
out nnd applied by Its undor surface to
the wound, which hns been Cleansed
without antiseptics. It Is then fixed In
placo by a covering of guttapercha tis
sue nnd n dry dressing. In three days
tho slto of tho graft appears as a spot
branching outward toward tho edges
of tho wound. After tho fifth day the
wound Is dressed with boric ointment
until healing Is completed, nil contrac
tion being avoided.
