from the Times-Union:

a short while obtain and forward to
the several boards.
State Treasurer J. C. Luning, in
his report for 1918, throws some light
on this subject; He shows that during
1018 traveling expenses were paid by
the state as follows:
Commissioner of agriculture $ 356.25
State chemist and assistants 857.28
Food and drug inspectors. . 2,169.23

Assistant state auditors.... 131952

But that is not all. To this, not re reported

GOING BACK TO NATURE.
BY DIt. W. LUCAS.
People get sick, because they go away
from (Nature, and the only way to get
well is to go back. Something grows out
of the ground in the form of vegetation
to cure almost every ill. Some of these
vegetable growths are understood by
man, and.. tome are not. Animals, it
would seem, know what to do when
they are sick better than men and
women. Observers have noted that a
sick horse, dog or cat will stop eating
food and seek out some vegetable
growth in the field or yard, which, when
found and eaten, often restores appetite
and health. Haven't you seen these
animals do this very tiling yourself?
Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., long
since found the herbs and roots pro provided
vided provided by Nature to overcome 'Constipa 'Constipation,
tion, 'Constipation, and he had these vegetables col collected
lected collected and made up of Mayapple, leaYea
of Aloe, root of Jalap, into little white
sugar-coated pills, that he called Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. Yon must
understand that when your intestines
are stopped up, poisons and decayed
matter are imprisoned in your eystem,
and these are carried by the blood
throughout your body. Thus does
your head ache, you get dizzy, yoa
can't sleep, your skin may break out,
your appetite declines, you get tired
and despondent. As a matter of fact,
you may get sick all over. Don't yoa
see how useless all this suffering is?
All that is often needed is a few of
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets, which he

convenience and health. Try them by
