MAXIE MILLER:—I’m puzzled stiff.
I been in love for a little while, or I
Slink I have. I've never zeen the
gentleman, but we have made love by
correspondence, and now he wants us
to marry. But he don’t like my home
•tate and wanta me to come to him to
marry him. He says he'll send my
fare and return fare, if I change af
ter I see him, but my home folks say
I hadn’t ought to go. I want to get
married, but I’m afraid of this busi
ness. Advise me.—Jenny Wrenn.
Jenny Wrenn: You should not need
advice in this case. Any woman who
in not one of the “57 varieties" of
fools would know better than to think
of marrying a man she has never
seen. Then, the request that you go
to him does not seem straight. Hie
excuse is too frivilous to be consider
ed. But suppose he should get you
there and compromise you, then re
fuse to marry you? Do you realize
what it would mean? Go to him?
Never! Let the gentleman call so you
and your folks can give him the ‘once’
over," and then a few times more. If
he refuses, then let him go the way
of all such unreasoning fools.—

“JIM AND MR. EDDY”
by Algernon Brashear Jackson
(Associated Publishers, Inc., 1538
Ninth St., N. W. Washington, DC.T
* * *
For years I have been reading the
weekly ANP releases of Dr. Algernon
B. Jackson. A few months ago he
did me the honor of searching out
my local address and wrote me a most
complimentary letter on my humble
journalistic efforts. Subsequently he
read a comment of mine that I had
never been privileged to review or
comment on any of the books put out
by the Associated Publishers until
Mr. John H. Paynter sent me his ‘Fu
gitives of the Pearl”. Dr. Jackson
then had the Associated Publishers
send me a copy of his “Jim and Mr.
* * *
Of all the non-fiction racial books
that I have read and commented up
on during the last two years none
have held my interest as did “Jim
and Mr. Eddy”. Perhaps this was so
because I too have travelled through
the southland and have met “Jim”,
“James”, “Mr. Eddy” and “Dr Eddy”
although not under the same favor
able circumstances as did the inter
esting Dr. and Jackson and his wife.
* * *
The Associated Publishers brought
this book out in 1930 so I am unable
to say whether it is still in print or
not, but if it is in print and you have
not yet read it, and you want to read
an interesting, convincing, analytical
description of facts concerning the
present southland, by all means read
Dr. Jackson’s "Jim and Mr. Eddy”.

Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld, the world-known authority on Sexology
and Director of the Institute for Sexual Science of Berlin, Germany,
to help the millions of men and women who have lost or are losing
their vital physical power. In his 35 years of practice and research,
however, he realized that the weakening of man's glands was also
responsible for other troubles: High blood pressure, hardening of
the arteries, physical exhaustion after work or exercise, dizziness,
depression, neurasthenia, etc.
All these troubles can be removed with Titus-Pearls. Numerous
cases were treated by Dr. Hirschfeld m his Berlin Institute.
L. S. (State Official; 60 years old, married) complained of
physical exhaustion, dizziness and tremors. Was easily tired. Mental
power dull and slow moving. Physical powers had been incomplete
for previous 5 years. Blood pressure too high. Given 2 Titus-Pearls
3 times a day. 2 weeks later the medical report on this man was:—
general health better, more vigor; dizziness much less and returning
of power. Treatment continued and 2 weeks later L. S. reported
again, this time to say that all weariness and exhaustion had gone;
he felt fresh and buoyant. His blood pressure had fallen, and at 60
years of age he had regained the physical power and virility that
he had known in the prime of his life.
Start regaining your youthfulness now! To-day! In 2 weeks
time you will be aware of the new, virile force within you. Send
$5.00 (cash registered or money-order) for 2 weeks treatment. C 0. D
