Rat Flea Responsible
for Far-Flung Empire?
“If there had been no rat flea
there probably would have been no
British empire,’’ according to Dr
Thomas W. 11. Cameron, director
of the Institute of Parasitology at
MacDonald Agricultural college. Ste.
Anne de Bellevue, Quebec, nt a
meeting of the Itoynl Empire society
of Montit'ul, recently reports the
Canadian Press. Britain probably
owes her vast empire to tlie rat flea.
Doctor Cameron declared, drawing
attention to the black plague of the
Middle ages—a plague which, he said,
carried olT half the population of Eu
rope. “This caused the collapse of
the agricultural system in England."
he explained, “and was directly re
sponsible for the development of
sheep fanning on a large scale. This
made wool and broadcloth England's
staple product and led to the neces
sity for finding of foreign mnrkefs
and the founding of the great trading
companies of that era. This subse
quently led to the overseas trade.

The “liquid test”
... it ENDS bowel worries
for many people
This is a test that tells you whether
the system needs a cathartic change.
If you have constant sluggish spells
or bilious attacks, and laxatives seem
to make things worse, it would be
wise to try this:
Stop all use of any laxative that
does not encourage variation from a
“fixed dose” (which may be entirely
too large a dose for your individual
need). Use instead, a liquid laxative
that you can measure and regulate
as to dose. As necessary to repeat,
take smaller doses, less and less often,
until the bowels are moving without
any help at all.
Doctors use liquid laxatives, and
a properly prepared liquid laxative,
containing natural laxative agents
like senna and cascara is a joy and
a comfort: a real help in establishing
regularity. Ask your doctor about
tins! (Doctors use liquid laxatives.)
You can get Dr. Caldwell’s Syrup
Pepsin, whirh is a most dependable
liquid laxative, at any drug store.
