Get This Habit
As Well As Men
Don't eat bite of ibrcakfast until

Happy, bright, alert vigorous and
vivacious a Rood, clear skin; a nat-
'ural, rosy complexion and freedom
from illness are assured only by
clean, healthy blood. If only every
woman and likewise every man could
realize the wonders of the morning
inside bath, what a gratifying change
would take place.
Instead of the thousands of sickly,
aiiacmic-lookinz men, women and
girls with pasty or muddy complex
ions; instead of the multitudes of
"nerve wrecks. rundowns, brain
fags" and pessimists we should see a
virile, optimistic throng ot rosy
cheeked people everywhere.
An inside bath is had by drinking,
each morning before breakfast, a
Klass of real hot water with a tea
spoonful of limestone phosphate in
it to wash from the stomach, liver,
kidneys and ten yrds of bowels the
previous day's indigestible waste,
sour fermentations and poisons, thus
cleansing, sweetening and freshening
the entire alimentary canal before
putting more food into the stomach.
Those subject to sick headache, bil
iousness, nasty breath, rheumatism,
colds; and particularly those who
imc a pallid, sallow complexion and
who are constipated very often, are
urged to obtain a quarter pound of
limestone phosphate at the drug store
which will cost but a trifle, but is
sufficient to demonstrate the quick
and remarkable change in both health
and. appearance awaiting those who
practice internal, sanitation. We must
remember that inside cleanliness is
more important than outside, because
the skhr does not absorb impurities
to contaminate the blood, while the
pores in the thirty feet of bowels do.
Persocs who are extremely suscep
tible to influenza or even a simple
cold, are either engaged in profes
sional work, or have considerable tax
upon' them in factory and office. In
fact, resistance to cold is r.ot so much
of what one wears as of what one is.
Since science has established this fact,
it is necessary for all whose work
requires some especially keen exer
cise of the mind, to guard themselves
against taking cold. So bear in mind
that Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey
judiciously used is a most efficient
means of preventing or overcoming
coughs, colds and grip. In the first
place it is a food and also an aid in
the digestion of other foods. By its
tonic and stimulating effect upon the
little digestive glands along the
mucous surfaces of the stomach, Duf
. fy's enables that organ to obtain from
the food all its nourishing proper
ties, and to properly digest and as
similate the same. In this the most
important step in the treatment of
coughs and colds, the system is fur
nished wtih the necessary strength
and vigor to resist and offset the
wasting inroads of these coniplaints.
Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey also im
parts heat and energy to the body,
which, together with its well known
remedial power, will enable you. as it
has thousands of previous cold suf
ferers, to "Get Duffy's and Keep

Turn Hair Dark
With Sage Tea
GranAna kept her locks dark, glossy
and youthful with a simple mix
ture of Sage Tea and Sulphur.
The old-time mixture of Sage Tea
and Sulphur for darkening gray,
streaked and faded hair is grandmoth
er's recipe, and folks are again using
it to keep their hair a good, even col
or, which is quite sensible, as we are
living in an age when a youthful ap
pearance is of the greatest advantage.
Nowadays, though, we don't have
the troublesome task of gathering the
sage and the mussy mixing at home.
All drug stores sell the ready-to-use
product, improved by the addition of
other ingredients called "Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Compound" for
about 50 cents a bottle. It is very
popular because nobody can discover
it has been applied. Simply moisten
your comb or a soft brush with it
and draw this through your hair, tak
ing one small strand at a time; by
morning the gray hair disappears, but
what delights the ladies with Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Compound is that,
besides beautifully darkening the hair
after a few applications, it also pro
duces that soft luster and appearance
of abundance which is so attractive.
This ready-to-use preparation is a
delightful toilet requisite for those
''who desire a more youthful appear
ance. It is not intended for the cure,
mitigation or prevention of disease.
- AIDS WEAK KIDNEYS
The symptoms of kidney and blad
der troubles are often very distressing
and leave the sysleTtr-in a run-down
condition. The kidneys seem to suffer
most, as almost every victim com
plains of lame back and urinary trou
bles, which should not be neglected,
asthese danger signals often lead? to
dangerous kidney troubles.
Dr. Kilrner's Swamp-Root, which
soon heals and strengthens the vkid
ncys, is a splendid kidney, liver and
bladder remedy, and, being an herbal
compound, has a gentle healing effect
on the kidneys, which is almost im
mediately noticed in most cases by
those who use it.
A trial will convince anyone who
may be in need of it. Better get a
bottle from your nearest drug store,
and start treatment at once.
However, if you wish first to test
this great preparation, send ten cents

You May Choose Your Hearse
at Omaha Auto Show A
FARMERS' DAY THIS MONTH
The great national shows of New
York and Chicago may be larger
than the Omaha automobile exposi
tion and they may be more preten
tious and expensive, but there's at
least one feature in which Omaha will
surpass the big fellows. Omaha will
have a larger automobile hearse dis
play. Clarke Powell, 'manager of the
local exposition, has been advised at
least six motor hearses and perhaps
more will be snown at the'auto show.
One dealer says he has prospective
buyers from points as far away as
South Dakota, Kansas and Wyoming
coming to Omaha to see his display
of hearses. Chicago only had two
hearses at its exhibition.
O. C. Friend, president, and John
W. Bates, vice president of the
Mitchell 'Motors company of Racine,
Wis., will be in attendance at the
Omaha show, according to advices
received by Manager Powell. Bates
is one of the best known automobile
engineers in the countrv and ranks
well up among the notables of the
American automobile industry. A
luncheon in honor of these distin
guished guests will be given Feb
ruary 27 by J. T. Stewart. 2d.
"" February 28 will be Farmers' clay
at the show. Farmers' day was an
innovation lait year and proved to
be the most successful day of the
show. It is expected to be the same
success this- year.
