Fiaht of Irish Partv to
Force New Election Fails
London, April 18. All possibility
of the country being disturbed in the
near future by a general election was
removed last night, when by a vote
of 286 to 52 the House of Commons
passed on second reading, the bill for
the extension of the life of the parlia
ment until November. The national
ists were the chief opponents of the
bill on the ground elaborated by
John Dillon that no solution of home
rule for Ireland had yet been an
nounced. Andrew Bonar Law, mem
ber of the British war council, said
the government was hopeful that the
spirit of war produced in Ulster
would create an atmosphere favor
able to a settlement now instead of
waiting until after the war. He de
clared there never had been a time
when there was so much good will
existing on this question and that it
was needless to despair of arriving
at a solution.

THE LAXATIVE BOOMERANG
The "come-back" of the continued use
' of drug laxatives is frequently worse
than the original ailment. .
All laxatives are irritants, which will
affect not only the intestines but the
stomach. They whip and spur the
bowels into action and are inevitably
followed by a reaction which helps to
make constipation chronic.
The use of Nujol, an intestinal lubri
cant, is the sensible and effective
means of promoting normal bowel
Nujol unlike drugs or physics, is not
absorbed by the system, but acts sim
ply as mechanical lubricant, prevent
in& the intestinal contents from be
coming hard and so facilitating normal
As Nujol is not a physic but a lubricant,
it does not gripe or upset the system.
Being tasteless, it is not unpleasant
The-Standard Oil Company (New
Jersey) has used its world-wide re.
sources in producing Nujol and its
reputation is behind the product
