either as signed at Versailles, or
modified by reservations that pro
tect our constitutional rights. And
now Senator Harding has declared
definitely against the league. Unless
he modifies that attitude- and de
clares himself ready to accept the
league principle, it will be impossi
ble for 10,000,000 women repre
sented in the council, pledged as
they are to- the league, to support
him. . . . There are no suffici
ent reasons why the present covenant
should not be adopted, with reserva
tiosn making the position of Ameri
ca clear and there are a great many
reasons why other countries would
not agree to dispense with the cove
nant in order to accept Mr. Hard
ing's new league. The peace struc
ture has been built up with too
much patient care to permit its read
ily being torn down to make way for
some entirely new edifice which has.
ae yet, nobody's complete approval."
The American women at Christi
ania do not feel like apologizing for
their country to the women "whose
countries have accepted the league
covenant", but will rather stand "for
the women of America as supporters
' of the league." A careful study will
be made or league matters, and a
report will be made later.
There can be no question as to the
great interest of the women in this
important subject. For years -they .,
have been working and praying for
peace, and have thrown their influ

THE RESULT IS SWEET

You know what the squirrel said
about the nut: "The shell is bitter,
but the nut is sweet." An old fable,
but always true. Triner's American
Elixir of Bitter Wine tastes also a
little bitter, but the result is very
sweet. It removes all waste matter
from your intestines, keeps your
bowels clean and gives you a healthy
appetite. You feel fine from morn
ing to night. This sweet result made
Triner'a American Elixir of Bitter
Wine so popular that every year re
quires an enlargement of the plant.
Just now two new tanks, 25,000 gal
lons each, were built in the new an
nex, new bottling and labeling ma
chines were installed, and the pro
duction highly increased. Only the
basical slogan remains the same:
"The best is only good enough for
our customers." When coming to
your druggist or dealer in medicines
insist that you must get the genuine
remedy. Triner's American Elixir of
Batter Wine, and refuse all imita
tions. Your dealer has also Triner'a
Angelica Bitter Tonic, Triner's Cough.
Sedative, Triner's Liniment, etc.. in.
