EASTERN TIME IS ILLEGAL
To add to the inconveniences of
eastern time, which has been forced
on the people of this section without
consulting them by the Intertsate
Commerce Commission, is the fact
that central standard time is estab established

state of Florida.
The Star's attention was called to
this matter by an article in the Tam Tampa

the Times was correct. The law not
only says standard time, but central
standard time, according to the 90th
meridian, which bisects the United
States a few miles west of Chicago.

keeping the ingredients secret, eo that

medicine, but openly printed the name
of each root and herb be used. And
bo to-day the names of Dr. Pierce and
his medicines are widely known, and
they stand for better health and better
One- of this great physician's most
successful remedies is known as Doctor
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. These are
little, sugar-coated pills, composed of
Mayapple, leaves of aloe, root of jalap
things that Nature grows in the ground.
These Pellets are safe because they
move the bowels gently, leaving no bad
after-effects, as so many pills do.
Very often they make 3 person who
takes them feel like a new man or
woman, for they cleanse the intestines
of hard, decayed and poisonous matter
that accumulates when one is costive.
If you are constipated, by all means
