THE ffilUE OF CHARCOAL
Few People Know How Useful It is in
Preserving Health and Beauty
Some little while ago a popular
writer visited a jail in order to take
notes for a magazine article on
prison life. On returning home he
described the horrors he had seen,
and his description made a deep im
pression on the mind of his little
daughter Mary. The writer and his
offspring, a week later, were in a
train together, which stopped at a
station near a gloomy building. A

"The county jail," another an
Whereupon Mary embarrassed her
father and aroused the suspicions of
the other occupants of the carriage
by asking, in a loud, shrill voice:
"Is that the jail you were in,
father?" Judge's Library.

After a careful and impartial con

Costs Nothing to Try
Nearly everybody knows that char
coal is the safest and most efficient
disinfectant and purifier in nature,
but few realize its value when taken
into the human system for the same
Charcoal is a remedy that the more
you take -of it the better; it is not a
drug at all, but simply absorbs the
gases and impurities always present
in the stomach and intestines and
carries them out of the system.
Charcoal sweetens the breath after
smoking, drinking or after eating
onions and other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and im
proves the complexion, it whitens the
teeth and further acts as a natural
and eminently safe cathartic.
It absorbs the injurious gases
which collect in the stomach and
bowels; it disinfects the mouth and
throat from the poison of catarrh.
All druggists sell charcoal in one
form or another, but probably the
best charcoal and the most for tho
money is in Stuart's Charcoal Loz
enges; they are composed of the
finest powdered Willow charcoal, and
other harmless antiseptics in tablet
form or rather in the form of large
pleasant tasting lozenges, the char
coal being mixed with honey.
The daily use of these lozenges
will soon tell in a much improved
condition of the general health, bet
ter complexion, sweeter breath and
purer blood, and the beauty of it is
that no possible harm can result from
their continued use, but, on the con
trary, great benefit.
A Buffalo physician, in speaking
of the benefits of charcoal, says: "I
advise Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges to
all patients suffering from gas in
stomach and bowels, and to clear the
complexion and purify the breath,
mouth and throat; I also believe the
liver is greatly benefited by the daily
use of them; they cost but twenty
five cents a box at drug stores, and
although in some sense a patent prep
aration, yet I believe I get more and
better charcoal in Stuartls Charcoal
Lozenges than in any of the ordinary
