a meeting of the retail credit men of

every day to be a successful "skip

H. Victor Wright of Los Angeles,
president of the National Association
of Retail Credit Men, was the prin

commercial life is important and we
are just awakening to that fact," said
the man from California. "We are just
beginning to appreciate the possibil
ities of retail credit. The tendency
has been to regard it as a necessary
evil and for the proprietor and bead
bookkeeper to look upon it merely as
a side issue. We should bear in

The Reliance of the Home
Thousands of good American homes have learned to rely upon Peruna. For the quick
and satisfactory treatment of colds, coughs and catarrhal disturbances of the stomach and
intestines, it has become a valued standby. Home makers know that these troubles must be
taken in the beginning that-colds and indigestion lead to chronic catarrh, and that chronic
catarrh soon becomes systemic, involving the mucous membrane that lines the nose, throat,
lungs, stomach and intestines. To prevent and overcome this condition, many declare there
is nothing so reliable as Peruna, with its
Nearly a Half Century of Usefulness
This record can only be the result of real merit. The teat of time will eliminate any unworthy
article. But it will also firmly establish the worthy. The American people have thoroughly estab

There is hardly a community in the United Slates that does not contain someone who has de
rived benefit from the .proper use of this household remedy in the last half century,

Chiropractic for Women
The world today is busy with
preparedness. In almost every
line of business and endeavor is
heard Preparedness. Greater in
its significance than all those
phases of preparedness is the
awakening of woman to her uni
versal and common needs in re
gard to perfect health.
In all diseases of women so
great has been the success of Chi
ropractic that thousands who
formerly suffered are finding re
lief through Chiropractic adjust
ments. The same principle applies to
adjustments for the very large
class known as women's diseases:
THE trouble is invariably found
due to impinged nerves, caused,
perhaps, from a fall in childhood
or from some slight accident,
which at the time of happening
was not deemed to be of any im
portance as affecting a person in
It is the pressure on nerves
which causes headache, chronic or
otherwise, dizziness, insomnia,
goiter, nervousness, rheumatism,
stomach and bowel troubles, back
aches and heavy bearing down
pains in the pelvic region.
No known agency or science
helps a woman under such condi
tions as Chiropractic spinal ad
justments, which removes the
pressure from the nerve or nerves
controlling the region involved.

above statements. Analysis is free
