Says you really feel clean, sweet
and fresh inside, and
are seldom ill.
If you are accustomed to wake up
with a coated tongue, foul breath oi
a dull, dizzy headache; or, if your
meals sour and turn into gas and
acids, you have a real surprise await
ing you.
Tomorrow morning, immediately up
on arising, drink a glass of hot water
" :th a teaspoonful of limestone phos
phate in it. This is intended to first
neutralize and then wash out of yoiu
stomach, liver, kidneys and thirty feet
of intestines all the indigestible waste,
poisons, sour bile and toxins, thus
cleansing, sweetening and purifying
the entire alimentary canal.
Those subject to sick headaches,
backache, bilious attacks, constipation
or any form of stomach trouble, are
urged to get a quarter pound of lime
stone phosphate from your druggist or
at the store and begin enjoying this
morning inside-bath. It is said that
men and women who try this become
enthusiastic and keep it up daily. It
is a splendid health measure for it is
more important to keep clean and pure
on the inside than on the outside, be
cause the skin pores do not absorb im
purities into the blood, causing dis
ease, while the bowel pores do.
The principle of bathing inside is
not new, as millions of people practice
it. Just as hot water and soap cleanse,
purify and freshen the skin, so hot
water and a teaspoonful cf limestone
phosphate act on the stomach, liver,
kidneys and bowels. Limestone phos
phate is an inexpensive white powder
and almost tasteless.—Adv.

Make It Thick, Glossy, Wavy, Luxur

Surprise for You.
Your hair becomes light, wavy, fluf
fy, abundant and appears as soft, lus
trous and beautiful as a young girl’s
after a “Danderine hair cleanse.” Just
try this—moisten a cloth with a little
Danderine and carefully draw it
through you? hair, taking one small
strand at a time. This will cleanse
the hair of dust, dirt and excessive oil
and in just a few momenta you have
doubled the beauty of your hair.
Besides beautifying the hair at once,
Danderine dissolves every particle of
dandruff; deanses, purifies and invig
orates the scalp, forever stopping itch
ing and faJling hair.
But what will please yon most will
be after % few weeks’ use when you
will actually see new batr—fine and
downy first—yes—but really new
hair—growing all over the scalp. If
you care for pretty, soft bair and lots
of it, surely get a 25 coat bottle of
Knowlton’s Danderine from any store
and just try it. Adv.

So Wisely Distributed That Tax
ation Will Affect Farmers to
a Degree Practically
So many rumors have been circu
lated regarding war taxation In
Canada that the statement made by
Sir Thomas White, Canadian Minister
of Finance, of the Government’s plans
for raising war revenue should be giv
en the widest circulation. Sir Thomas
made it clear that the revenue will be
raised by taxing the protits of incor
porated companies whenever those
profits exceed seven per cent, and the
profits of unincorporated firms or part
nerships when the profits exceed ten
per cent. On all such excess profits
these companies or firms will have to
contribute one-quarter to the Govern
ment. Transportation companies,
banks, mining, milling, and other com
panies will be subject to this taxation,
but life insurance companies, and com
panies with less than fifty thousand
dollars capitalization, and companies,
firms, or individuals engaged in agri
culture or stock raising, are exempt,
and pay no part of this taxation. The
only other additional taxation pro
posed is an increase of fifty cents a
barrel in the customs duty on apples,
and one-half cent a gallon in customs
duty on certain kinds of oils.
It will be noticed that this taxation
is being applied in such a way that it
does not affect farmers in the slight
est degree, except, perhaps, through a
small increase in cost of apples and
oil. The war revenue is to be paid out
of the profits of the big firms and com
panies with capital of over fifty thou
sand dollars, and even these are al
lowed seven per cent in some cases,
and ten per cent in others of clear
profits before they have to pay any
part of this taxation. It will be seen
that the whole policy is to place the
war expenditure taxation on those who
have been making big profits and are
able to pay it, and to encourage farm
ing and stockraising by exempting
farmers and stock-raisers from the tax
ation. This ought to set at rest every
rumor that the farmer or the farmer’s
land is being taxed to pay the cost of
the war.—Advertisement.

“California Syrup of Figs” can’t
harm tender stomach,

Every mother realizes, after giving
her children “California Syrup of

because they love Its pleasant taste

little stomach, liver and bowels with

When cross, irritable, feverish, or
breath is bad, stomach sour, look at

teaspoonful of this harmless “fruit
laxative,” and in a few hours all the
foul, constipated waste, sour bile and

Orders Are to Take Villa and His
Band, Dead or Alive—Seventeen
Killed in Columbus Raid.
Washington.—American troops, by
orders from President Wilson, have
crossed the Mexican border to take
Francisco Villa and his bandits, dead
or alive, as the result of the recent
raid by Vililstas on Columbus, N. M.,
when seventeen Americans were kill
ed and a score or more wounded.
Under the direction of Major Gen
eral Funston, who ended the Philip
pine insurrection by taking Aguinaldo
single-handed, American columns
consisting of about 5,000 men moved
across the international boundary to
meet about 3,000 guerrila troops in a
mountainous region, from which Car
ranza troops have fled. Whether this
lorg-dei'erred action, which begins
purely as a punitive measure to clear
northern Mexico of menacing bandit
bands over which General Carranza
has no control, shall grow into a gen
eral armc-d intervention or occupaicn
in Mexico depends in a large measure
upon General Carranza and the Mex
ican people.
After a brief cabinet meeting, at
which the president tvas described as
being as determined to eliminate Vil
la, as he was to eliminate Huerta,
Secretary Baker hurried to the War
department and as his first act in of
fice sent orders to the border troops.
Soon afterward the army general
staff assembled and conferred over
the plans, long drawn and perfected
since the Mexican situation loomed
up as a disturber to the peace of the
United States.
General Funston telegraphed urging
utmost secrecy of the armv plans. The,
border is honeycombed with Mexican
spies, and it was agreed that the ex
pedition will be pushed to success by
keeping Villa and his men ignorant of
its movements. It is possible that no
correspondents will be permitted to
accompany the columns. At any rate
a strict censorship will be imposed.
State department officials declined
to say what their attitude would be if
General Carranza took a hostile posi
tion. They said the United States
would settle that question when it
arose. If an offer of co-operation of
Carranza troops is made, they said,
it could hardly be refused.
Secretary Lansing announced that
no matter how far into Mexico it wa.
necessary for American forces to
penetrate, or to what numbers it be
came necessary to increase their
force, the United States would con
sider the expedition a punitive one
one purely for the suppression of out
laws. For such action there is ample
precedent in international taw and,
in fact, in the relations of the United
States with Mexico.
In sharp contrast to the stirring
scenes in congress two years ago
when President Wilson ordered the
fleet to Vera Cruz, the president’s ac

placency in both house and senate.

“My name is Jones and I’m from

stood before the big battery of milling machines in the
Grape-Nuts factories at Battle Creek, Mich., and after
inspecting both the wheat and flour said to the miller:
“That’s selected wheat, and no ‘patent flour’ stunt,
either. That wheat comes out of the rolls as honest
and unrefined as it went in. Where did you ever make
flour before that retained the true mineral content of
the grain?”
And the wise miller replied: “I have worked in
a good many mills, and 1 am no youngster, but let
me tell you, 1 never made whole wheat flour like that
until I came with this company.”
The truth is, white flour is wofully lacking in certain
essential mineral elements which are thrown out in the
milling to make flour white and pretty, and its use
frequently results in impaired health and activity.
The famous pure food,
is made of honest whole wheat and malted barley; and
supplies in splendid proportion all the brain- and nerve
making, bone- and muscle-building elements of the
field grains, including their mineral elements.
Rich, nut-like flavour, ease of serving, and quick
digestibility have made Grape-Nuts a household word
the country over.
