llunyon'9 Paw Paw Pills are unlike
all other laxatives or cathartics. They
coax the liver into activity by gentle
methods. They do not scour , they do
not gripe , they do not weakeri , but they
do start all the secretions of the liver
and stomach in a way that foon puta
these organs ina healthy condition and
corrects constipation. In my opinion
constipation is responsible for most ail
ments. There are 26 feet of human
"bowels , which is really a sewer pipe.
iWhen this pipe becomes clogged the
whole system becomes poisoned , caus
ing biliousness , indigestion and impure
blood , which often produce rheumatism
and kidney ailments. No woman who
suffers with constipation or any liver
eilment can expect to have a clear
complexion or enjoy good health. If
! had my way -would prohibit the sale
of nine-tenths of the cathartics that are
now being sold for the reason that they
soon destroy the lining of the stomach ,
setting up serious forms of indigestion ,
and so paralyze the bowels that they re

to the stomach , liver aud nerves. They
invigorate instead of weaken ; they en

Changed Their Minds
"Your Easter hat ? " says the first
dear friend , while the other dear
friends listen joyously. "Your new
hat. It looks , my dear , as though
some man had made it. "
"Humph ! " remarks the angelic
creature who has asked for their
IT CURED HER.
His wife was gloomy and depressed ,
Inclined to be most critical ,
And questioned all his actions in
A manner analytical.
He sought an office building where
A very wise physician was ,
And carefully he told the Doc ,
What his wife's disposition was.
The doctor wrote : "Take one wire base
Which has an Easter bonnet on ,
Also a dress of costly silk
Bedecked with filmy Honiton.
"This Is a certain cure , if It
Is given her dlurnally
M. Sig : Unpack them from the box
And then apply externally. "
THE PLEASURES OF YOUTH.
"I have some Easter eggs , too , "
says the nice little boy , "but I am go
ing to take mine to the children's
exercises this afternoon. "
"S'm I , " answers the bad little boy.
"Dey's a bunch o' us children goin'
to have some exercises in de gallery
at de matinee o' 'De Hero o' Deep
Gulch. ' I been savin' dis egg for
free weeks for it. "
"The missus always gives her
dresses to the servants after she has
worn them a few times. "
"Well , I'm not going to stay unless
she changes her style. She got an
other blue dress for Easter and blue
doesn't suit my style of beauty ! "

To buy an Easter bonnet
He did his best ,
Alas , his little lyric
Met with a fate satiric
Ho was assessed ,
So much to buy the bonnet
That he cashed in the sonnet
And ode the rest.

may not marry the count. "
"But , why , papa ? " petulantly asked
the spoiled child.
"The expense Is greater than I can
"There would not be such a terri

much and is not extravagant in

ITCHED SO COULD NOT SLEEP
"I suffered from the early part of
December until nearly the beginning
of March with severe skin eruptions
on my face and scalp. At first I
treated it as a trivial matter. But
after having used castile soap , medi
cated washrags , cold cream , ' vanish
ing cream , stc. , I found no relief what
ever. After that I diagnosed my case
as eczema , because of its dry , scaly
appearance. The itching and burning
of my SCS.IP became so intense that I
thought I should go mad , 'having not
slept regularly for months past , only
at intervals , waking up now and then
because of the burning and itching of
my skin. Having read different tes
timonials of cures by the Cuticura
Remedies , I decided to purchase a box
of Cuticura Ointment and a cake of
Cuticura Soap. After using them for
a few days I recognized a marked
change in my condition. I bought
about two boxes of Cuticura Ointment
and five cakes of Cuticura Soap in all ,
and after a few days I was entirely
free from the itching and burning.
My eczema was entirely cured , all
due to using Cuticura Soap and Oint
ment daily. Hereafter I will never
be without a cake of Cuticura Soap on
my washstand. I highly recommend
the Cuticura Remedies to anyone suf
fering from similar skin eruptions and
hope you will publish my letter so
that others may learn of Cuticura
Remedies and be cured. " ( Signed )

Nine-tenths of all the sickness of women is due to. some derangement or dis
ease of the organs distinctly feminine. Such sickness can be cured is cured

It Makes Weak Women Strong ,
Sick Women Well.
It acts directly on the organs affected and is at the same time a general restora

of home. It makes unnecessary the disagreeable questioning , examinations and
local treatment so universally insisted upon by doctors , and so abhorrent to
every modest woman.

those peculiar affections incident to women , but those
