BASKING IN THE SON.
The love of sunshine is naturally one of
our strongest Instincts and we should be
far better and healthier if wc took more of
it. All of these things should be enjoyed
In moderation. Even walking, If theexer
cise Is carried to the point of fatigue, is
hurtful to the Invalid. It takes the rarest
common sense to tell just what the sick
should do and should not do in order to
obtain the best results and the least injury
from these things. This Is certain, that
the first thing that the sick must attend to
Is to see that the digestion is in perfect
order. When this is not the case the evil
may be remedied by tailing the Laxative
Gum Drop. These gum drops are' the best
things in the world for people with weak
stomachs for the reason that they contalni
nothing deleterious and they can be given,
to the most delicate child without injuring:
it in the least. These gum drops are put
up In two sizes. The small size costs ten.
cents the large size twenty-five cents. Get
' them of any dealer.

Did you ever see a sickly
baby with dimples ? or a heal
thy one without them ?
A thin baby is always deli
cate. Nobody worries about,
a plump one.
If you can get your baby
plump, he is almost sure to
be well. If you can get him.
well, he is almost sure to be
plump. The way to do both there
is but one way is by care
ful living. Sometimes this,
depends on Scott's Emulsion
of cod-liver oil.
We will send you a book
on it; free.
