Many thousands of bushel of grain have
been hauled to this market from that sec

that all that will be asked Is a rlght-of-

would be small. The prospect for a road

The fact that the original aurvey of the
old Elkhorn road traversed this route with
practically no variation creates the belief
that the Northwestern road may be back'

One of the surveyor of this old Elkhorn
route, who Is In business In this part of
the country now, say that when the

line to the coast It will build a cut-off from

such cut-off a saving of twenty-two mile
would be made In the main line, and many

What Sulphur Does
For the Human Body In Health and
The mention of sulphur will recall to
many of us the early days when our moth
er and grandmother gave u our daily
dose of sulphur and moloasea every spring
It was the universal spring and fall
"blood purifier," tonic and cure-all, and
mind you, thl old-fashioned remedy waa
not without merit.
The Idea waa good, but the remedy waa
crude and unpalatable, and a large quantity
had to be taken to get any effect.
Nowaday we get all the beneficial effect
of sulphur in a palatable, concentrated
form, so that a single grain Is far more
effective than a tables poonful of the crude
In recent year, research and experiment
have proven that the best sulphur for
medicinal use la that obtained from Calcium
(Calcium Sulphide) and sold in drug stores
under the name of Stuart' calcium Wafe.a
They are small chocolate-coated pellet and
contain the active medicinal principle of
sulphur in a highly concentrated, effective
Few people are aware of the value of thl
form of sulphur in restoring and maintain
ing bodily vigor and health; sulphur sets
directly on the liver and excretory organ
and purllle and enriches the blood by the
prompt elimination of waste material.
Our grandmothers knew this when they
dosed us with sulphur and molasses every
spring and fall, but the crudity and Im
purity of ordinary flower of sulphur wer
often worse than the disease, and cannot
compare with the modern concentrated
preparations of sulphur, of which Stuart's
Calcium Wafera la undoubtedly the best
and niobt widely used.
They are the natural antidotes for liver
and kidney troubles and cure constipation
and purify the blood In a way that often
surprises patient and physician alike.
Dr. R. M. Wilklns, while experimenting
with sulphur remedies, soon found that the
sulphur from Calcium waa superior to any
other form. He : "For liver, kidney
and blood troubles, especially when result
ing from conatlpation or malaria, I have
been surprised at the results obtained front
Stuart's Calcium Wafera. In patients
suffering from bolls and pimples and even
deep-seated carbuncles, I have repeatedly
seen them dry up and diaappear In four or
five days, leaving the skin clear snd smooth.
Although Stuart's Calcium Wafer la a pro.
prietary article, and sold by druggists, snd
for that reason tabooed by many physi
cian, yet I know of nothing so aaf and
reliable for constipation, liver and kidney
trouble, and especially In all forms of skin
disease, as this remedy."
At any rate people who are tired of pills,
cathartics and so-called blood "purifiers"
will find In Stuart's Calcium Wafers a far
safer, more paiatabla and effective preparation.
