the United States National museum
has estimated that the Virginia sea

Why So Many People
Past 40
Feel That They’re Slipping
Many people ’round 40 think they're
“growing old.” They feel tired a lot
. . . “weak." Have headaches, dizzi
ness, stomach upsets.
Well, scientists say the cause of all
this, in a great many cases, is simply
an acid condition of the stomach.
Nothing more.
All you have to do is to neutralize
the excess stomach acidity.
When you have one of these acid
stomach upsets, take Phillips’ Milk
of Magnesia after meals and before
going to bed. That's all I
Try this. Soon you’ll feel like
another person! Take either the
familinr liquid “PHILLIPS’ ” or the
convenient new Phillips’ Milk of
Magnesia Tablets.
Phillips' Milk of Magnesia Tab
lets are now on sale at all drug
stores everywhere. Each tiny tab
let is the equivalent of
a teaspoonful of Gen

that had there been anyone sitting
on one of those branches he couldn’t

“Don't look so high, Peter. Don’t
look so high,” said the voice with
a chuckle. This time It sounded
as If It came right out of the trunk
of the tree. Peter stared at the
trunk, then suddenly laughed right
out. .lust a few feet above the
ground was a good-sized hole in
the tree, and poking Ids head out
of it was a funny little fellow with
big eyes and n hooked beak.
“You certainly did fool me that
time. Spooky,” cried Peter. “1 ought
to hate recognized your voice, but
I didn’t.”
Spooky the Screech Owl, for that

in the tree, and without a sound
from his wings flew over nnd
perched just above Peter’s head.
He was a little fellow, not more
than eight inches high, but there
was no mistaking the family to
which he belonged. In fact he
looked very much like a small copy
of Hooty the Great Horned Owl, so
much so that Peter felt a little
cold shiver run over him, although
he had nothing in the world to fear

Dear Mr. Wynn:
I was to a vaudeville show lust
night. It was one of those acts a
fellow with a terrible voice sang
a song. Although he sang It badly
the melody still haunts me. How
do you account for that?

haunts you Is because the singer
was so bad he probably murdered
the song.
