When You Have a Cold.
It is when you have a severe cold
that you appreciate the good qualities
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. Mrs.
Frank Crocker, Pana, 111., writes:
"Our rive-year-old son, Paul, caught
a severe cold last winter that settled
on his lungs and he had terrible cough
ing spells. We were greatly worried
about him as the medicine we gave
him did not help him in the least. A
neighbor spoke so highly of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy that I got a
bottle of it. The first dose benefited
him so much that I continued giving
it to him until he was cured."

Alkali Lakes Yield Great Output
Nation's Production Increases -'
Washington; D. C,, Feb. .22.-r-A re
markable expansion in the American
potash industry has resulted from ef
forts to make the United States inde
pendent of foreign sources for the pot
ash used in munitions and for other
nut-poses, and although the boom did
not get under way until late in 101 1,
production during the calendar year
reached a value ten times as great as
that of Ivlo.
The li'it! production is estimated, in
a preliminary report published today
by the geological survey, at 10.000
tons, with a value of iV00,U0O. The
estimate is based on incomplete re
turns, which to date have accounted
for 8.S:0 ton-.. In 1017, the report
says, with the boom in full swing, a
much greater total will be shown.
Of the 8,S3' tons reported. r.7 0
were produced from mineral and li.OO
from organic sources. Natural suits
and brines yielded 3,S.0 tons; alunite
and silic-vte rocks, 1,000 tons; kelp,
1,110 tons; penrlash. 220 tons, and
miscellaneous industrial wastes, l.T.'.O
"The large.--1 output," the report
says, "comes from the Nebraska alka'i
lakes, but the natural sa'ine deposits
elsewhere are now ju.-l beginning to
make important contributions.' The
recovery of potash from pcarjash is an
oh! established industry. A grot
deal of publicity has attended the ef
forts t; obtain potash from V.dp. but
r. similar arganic source of high-grade
! potash salts has bet. n quietly di.vel
! oped, whkh has proved more prcduc
! tive. Indeed, the '.onorted production

A Hint to the Aj;cd.
If people past sixty years of age
could be persuaded to go to bed as
soon as they take cold and remain in
bed for one or two day?, they wouki
recover much more quickly, especially
if they take Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. There would also be less
danger of the cold being followed by
any of the more'serious diseases.

ly for disorders of the stomach, liver
and bowels. If you are troubled with
heartburn, indigestion or constipation
they will do you good.

was emphasized last night by general
e.p! CKsions of indignation at news of
the ainking of seven Deutcli sfyips in

The tern-ion was accentuated by an
r.mmcoment of the foreign minister
that Geimany hail some time, ago
tacitly agreed to exempt Beutch ships
from attacks up to February 22, "but
could not guarantee absolute safety."
The seven ships sunk all went down
on February 22. They were the Hoi-
buid-Amoi ican line s Zaadijk and
Noordc-di ik, the Eottcrdamsche
Lloyd liners .Tacatra and Menado, and
the Femland, tiaasterland and Ben-
