A Good Appetite. '
Peruna very promptly produces a vig
orous appetite. It is especially appli
cable to those people who have lost their
relish , for food. They get up in the
morning with. coated tongue, and do not
care for breakfast. They drag along
through the forenoon,' sit down to din
ner with a languid appetite, or perhaps
a distaste for food. And so on through
the .day. r
Almost the first dose of Peruna will
help such people. They want to eat at
once. To their surprise,, rood sets wui
on their stomach, and digests well.
It Is the universal experience with Pe
runa that a natural hunger is produced.
Where there is a loss of flesh as the re
sult of disease or fatigue,' Peruna Im
mediately Increases the weight ' of the
patient, good solid flesh.
One bottle Is amply sufficient to con
vince anybody that Peruna is an appe
tiser, prompt in action, harmless In op
eration, and lasting in results. , . .

UNCLE SAM'SSPELLING BOARD
Extent and Nstare of tho Task tha
O atrial Saellera Grapple '.
Reference to an atlas, a map or an en
cyclopedia will frequently disclose the fact
that geographical names vary greatly In
the spelling, and often one will And differ
ent names applied to the same objoct.
For Instance, the great extinct volcano
of ' Washington is known on some maps
as Mount Rainier, on others as .Tacoma;
Kongo is spelled in some places with an
, initial "C," In others with "K;" Lake Per.d
Orlene, in Idaho, has been spelled In a
doxen different ways; Dyea, or Talya, in
Alska, Is spelled In more ways than there
are letters in the name. ...
There are upon the maps of this country
thousands of such' cases.
In order to Insure uniformity of users
In our government publications, the presi
dent of the United States in 1890 organised
the board of geographic names. This
board Is made up of men chosen as repre
sentatives of different departments and
bureaus of the government.
It Is the duty of the board, whenever a
case of conflicting usage Is brought before
It. to decide which form shall ba adopted
The decision is binding upon all depart
ments of the government, end as most of
the ma pa of the United States are first
made by the government, the names thus
adopted usually come into general use. .
The work of the board, in the examlna
tlnn of the cases presented to It, is for the
most part very simple. The local usage lr.

adopted. But In the case of foreign name
this is not always feasible. We do not
adopt Wlen for Vienna, or Flrenae foi
Florence, despite the fact that the first of
these are the names In local use.
In unsettled regions there Is little or nr
local usage to aid in deciding ths propc
names of features, and in such cases th

Peruna His Traveling Com
Mr. August Haase, St. Anthony. Du-

I was troubled much with catarrh for
several years. I was advised to take
Peruna and used two tjottles of It, whljh
did ms much good.
. "I decided to see my old home in Ger
many again, after an absence of forty
years, and bought a bottle of Peruna to
take while on my way. Whenever I
would have symptoms of catarrh I woul3
take Peruna, and so was very well whll-3
going over. I would advise every one
who crosses ths ocean to take Peruna

Catarrh of Kidneys.
Judge C. J. Park, R. F. D. No. 1, Buck
head, Q a., writes:
"For a long time I was troubled with
catarrh of the kidneys, and after taking
Peruna, I feel like a new man. I think
it the greatest catarrh medicine of the
age, and believe it will cure any case of
catarrh on record. '
"Rest assured that Peruna will ever be
highly praised and recommended by my'
board commonly decides upon tha names
first applied, or selects the most appropri
ate or euphonious name among those In
use. It prefers native names, such as
those applied by the Indians, or those
given by early Spanish or Trench ex
plorers. Oeographlo names,- Ilka other parts of the
language, are undergoing changes all the
time. Some of these are corruptions, like
the substitution of Bobruly for Bols Brule.
In -such cases the board restores the orig
inal 'form, if possible. Often the corrupted
form is too firmly established to be dis
lodged. Other changes that are going on ara de
sirable, such as the shortening of names
by leaving off superfluous and silent let
ters and unnecessary words, while others
are In the direction of uniformity In spell
ing. ' Such changes the board encourages.
It does not adopt the possessive form of
names, such as "Jones' Pass" and "Pike's
Peak," since the person whose name is
thus borne does not own the geographical
feature. It spells "center," not "centre,"
and It drops the final "h" in "burgh" and
