MEAT CAUSE OF
Take Salts to flush Kidneys if
Back hurts or Bladder
If you must have your meat every
day, eat it, but flush your kidneys
with salts occasionally, says a noted
' authority who tells us that meat
forms uric acid which almost par
alyzes the kidneys in their efvorts
to expel it from the blood. They
. become sluggish and weaken, then
. vou suffer with a dull miseiy in the
kidney region, sharp pains in the
back or sick headache, dizziness,
your stomach sours, tcnguc is coat
ed, and when the weather is bad you
have rheumatic twinges. The urine
gets cloudy,' full of .sedjment, the
channels often get sore and irritated,
obliging you to seek relief two or
three times during the night.
To neutralize these irritating
acids, to cleanse the kidneys and
flush off the body's urinous waste
get four ounces of Jad Salts from
any pharmacy here; take a table
spoonful .in a glass of vater before
breakfast for a few days and your
kidneys will then act - fine. This
famous salts is made from the acid
of grapes and lemon juice, combin-
ed with lithia, and has been used
(or generations to flush and stimu

tralize the acids in urine, so it no

THEY BEGIN EARLY
So soft and flower-like she seems,
So sensitive and mild;
A. thing of fairy-woven dreams,
A frail, defenseless child. (
No will to gain her heart's desire '
All wisdom still to learn;
The feeble, newly klrtdled fire '
As yet can barely burn.
But put her In her trundle bed
When she prefers to play, . .
And she will howl to wake the dead '
And keep it up all day;
And when, for hour after hour
You've listened to her wall,
The tender fragile little flower
Won't seem so fair and frail! '.
A little, tender trusting mite
All Innocent of guile,
Who coos with rapturous delight ' ;
To see her mother smile. - ' , ,
Too weak, she is to walk alone,
Her little tongue untaught . . , .
(You think) to make her wishes known
Or tell her tiniest thought. ' .
But try to take away the shears
Her hand bo fondly grips -The
while the kitten's tail and ears
Industriously she clips,
And when you hear her lift the lid
With outcries loud and shrill,

She has a wpman's will.

I looked at Dicky quickly, a bit
culltily. His mother's indictment
was perfectly true. In the pertur
bation which had been mine at the
episode in which I had been an un
willing antagonist of Rita Brown,
I had not thought of anything so
trivial as a dinnerl until it was time
to dress for it. And with Mother
Graham fussing over her gown, de
manding: my services every other
minute, the while I tried in the in
tervals to make a toilet worthy of
the occasion. I had completely for
gotten that some arrangement must
be made for the care or junior
while we were gone.
It is a problem which I have
never had to consider before. When,
my faithful maid, Katie, lay in
death's shadow, grieving for the lit
tle child which had only breathed
and fled back to God again, I had
roused her from her dangerous
apathy by the news of the expected
coming of my own baby. She had
Sowed excitedly then that she would
care for my baby as if it were her
own, and never once has she even
flagged in the fulfilment of her
promise. I have never had to won
der .what to do about Junior when
making arrangements to go out in
the evening, knowing that he was as
safe in Katie's Oare as in my own.
No wonder that with other things
crowding my brain I had forgotten
that Katie was enjoying a wen
earned vacation many miles away.
Dicky's eyes were dancing with
Debating Dicky Junior
"I don't see why anything would
happen to him if you left him
here," he said with solemn face.
'He never wakes up from the time
you put him to sleep until about 4
G. M., and you'll be home before
that. Just tuck him into bed, leave
the light half on, lock the door,
and go on ypur-way."
"Richard!" His mother fairly
shrieked his name. "Do you mean
to tell me that you would leave

"Suppose you shut up," his moth
er advised curtly, "and let me think.
I tell you there was never any
problem like this in my day. I
stayed at home with my babies. I
never thought of going anywhere In

lvast 3 years old."
The time has been when such a
speech from my motherin-law
would have completely upset me. I
would have thought that she actual
ly wished me to stay at home with
Junior and miss the Paige dinner
preceding Leila's wedding. And, I
confess it with tingling cheeks, in
that comparatively recent time I
would promptly and resentfuUy-r-have

Dicky dubs it, and insisted upon
missing the dinner and staying at

know she's living from one minute
to another. I'd never trust her a
minute. If only Katie were here."
"How blessings brighten as they
take their flight!" Dicky murmured
beneath his breath, but his mother's
keen ears heard him. I saw her
throw her head up, her shoulders
back, and knew that not I but she
would stage the "martyr act."
"I suppose you think you'rel
amusing," she snapped, "but I cantl
tell you that you re only silly. Of
course, I can see what you all ex
pect of me. Who am I, an old
woman with one foot in the grave,
that I should want to go anywhere?
No doubt I should embarrass you,
anyway. And the people there will
never know whether I have come
or not. And I don't want to go any
way. I would much rather stay

assertion she began to weep storm-
Don't Wear Out Your Friendship.

Even the warmest friends become
weary if you impose too much on
Don t get the habit of expecting
too much of your friends.
I hey enjoy doing you a good turn,
once in a while, but they do not care
to be looked upon as a "steady" in
helping you out of difficulties nor
in doing things for you which you
should be able to do for yourself.
You are getting into a bad habit
if you rely on sbme frieud to make
up for your lack of effort, lack of
ability t,r your lack of good judg
ment. You ought to be able to conduct
your own affairs independently.
it is an easy matter to run to your
friends whenever trouble comes, bnt
it gets easier, the more you resort to
this method and you get to do it
over more and more trifling matters.
boon your friends look upon you
as a weakling, a bore or a genuine
nuisance from which they would like
to rid themselves.
Stand on your own feet and the

Do We Speak of Something as
(Copyright. 1920, By The W.leeler
Syndicate, Inc )
, In England the partisan color
of blue was first adopted by the
Covenanters in opposition to the
scarlet badge of Charles I, and
was worn by the troops of Leslis
and Montrose in 1639. The adop
tion of the color was one of those
religious pedantries for which the
Covenanters were famous, insist
ing upon a strict and literal fol
lowing of Biblical precepts when
ever possible. Thus, as they
named their children Habakkuk
and Zerubbabel, and their chap
els Zion and Ebenezer and the
like, they decorated their persons
with blue ribbons because of the
precept given in the law of
Moses, "Speak to the children of
Israel and tell them to make
themselves fringes on the borders
of their garments, putting in
them ribbons of blue." . ,
The same color was also a
party distinction in Rome, In
the factions of the Circus of the
Lower Empire, the Emperor
Anastasius secretly favored the
"greens," while Justinian openly
protected the "blues." The lat
ter, therefore, became the emblem
of loyalty, the badge of faith and,

nothing that Paddy Muskrat 1 liked
better than floating about in the
water beneath the shade of the great
willow tree. ,
And Paddy was not the only one

Green and some of the other boys
that went to school in the little red
schoolhouse were fond of swimming
under the big willow.

when they came for a swim in the
mill-pond. But there was nothing

went away, i o . be sure, he had
spoken to Mr, iurtle a.bout the mat

keep out of our pond," said Paddv
But Mr.' Turtle said that it might
make too much talk. (Paddy Musk
rat thought that he was really afraid
to do irt)
Faddy was much annoyed when
on the hottest day of the summer
Johnie Green and three of his play
mates came to the big willow just as
Faddy had begun to enjoy the cool
"I hope thev won t stay long,'
Paddy said, as he hid himself under
the bank. "If. I couldn't swim any
better than those boys id be
ashamed to go into the water."
The boys had not splashed in the
pond long before one of them a
red-haired lad said he had to hurry
home to help rake hay.
Faddy Muskrat was pleased when
he heard that. He hoped that the
others would soon leave, too.
For any one in a hurry, the red-
haired boy seemed to take a long
time to dress. But at last he went
off whistling merrily, as if some
thing pleased him. He did not sound

swimming-hole to go to work m a
To Faddy Muskrat s great disap

right for interrupting his own fun.
But Johnnie Green and his other
friend did not seem pleased. Thev
scrambled out of the water in a
hurry. And alt three of them began
searching .for their' clothes.
It was a long time before thev
found them. Whenever a wagon
came along the road they dived into
the mill-pond though Paddv Musk
rat couldn't understand why they
should do that.
At last Johnnie Green came upon
the missing clothes, hidden by the
fence.! But their troubles were not
yet elided. The red-haired boy had
tied knots in every garment. And it
was another hour before those three
angry youngsters succeeded in un
tying them again.
All that time Paddy Muskrat
watched them. And by the time thev
had dressed and gone away the sun
had traveled so' far toward the west
that the big willow no longer cast
its shadow upon the pond.
So Paddy had to wait until the
next day before he could float
lazily about in the shade. And he
