information that married couples gen generally

We dott't think a lady should kis3 her

some husbands go to Jacksonville, it
would be a good idea for their wives
to kiss them quite a number of times
before they leave home.

"Mrs. A. Tweedy, secretary of the
Marion County Fair, is there with the
big mitt when it comes to advertising
the fair. She takes her typewriter in
her lap and writes us that since the
war is on and Germany is holding a
big fair this year we should worry

should strafe the kaiser by all attend attending

him that we do not care a well, a

A French physiologist described man as a w digestive tube with arrangements for locomotion and guidance."
It is, commonly said that most people w dig their graves .with their teeth." The disastrous effects of constipation
have always been well known. It is easily understood how serious are the troubles which are caused by
stagnation of decayed matter in the large intestines
poison reabsorbed and taken into the circulation this
is called auto-intoxicatipn. It is apparent, there therefore,,
fore,, therefore,, that the first necessity is to cleanse the intestines
The best method for cleansing the whole
intestinal tract and urging the liver into activity is
to take as much outdoor exercise as possible, -drink
hot water before meals,and take a pleasant, laxative,
vegetable pill occasionally. Such a one is made up
of May-apple, leaves of aloe, root of jalap; made
into a sugar-coated pill that gives tone to the bowels.
This was first made nearly fifty years ago, and sold by
almost all druggists as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
Such simple means will prevent auto-intoxication.
People are realizing that the kidneys, just
as do the bowels, need to be flushed occasion-
ally The kidneys are an eliminative organ and
I are constantly working, separating the poisons from, the blood. Uric -acid backs up into the system, causing
rheumatism, neuralgia, dropsy and many other serious disturbances.
This can be avoided by stimulating the kidneys' to increased action, and because of its tonic effect
on these organs I would advise any one to purchase Anuric (double or triple strength), which is to be had
nowadays) at almost any drug store, and take it three times a day. Also drink hot water before meals.

Churches now have service flags,
with a star for every member of
the congregation who is in the ser-
following description of her costume
for the benefit of fashion lovers:
"On the arm of her brother, Lieut.
R. C. D came the stately bride in
her long trailing draperies of lovely
white crepe de chene with a deep deep-shaped

which fell in graceful folds at the
side. The collar was high and of
Carrickmaeross lace, the neck of the
gown being cut square back and
front. Her long court train was lined
with palest pink crepe. An exquisite
veil of lace which fell to the chin in
front and wown the long train at the
back, hung from' a Russian coronet
of white heather and string of pearls
and the bridegroom's gift, a wrist
watch. Her bouquet was of Ophelia
roses. Her shoes, very smart white
satin ones with beautiful paste buckles."
The groom, who is a Lieutenant R.

down the front steps through a long
arch of crossed swords held by the

service flag was thrown out, and it
contained 162 stars.
In spite of the otherwise war-time
simplicity, there were silver printed
copies of the service in the pews.

Heat Is so common that most of us
never give it a thought except to com

winter. And yet heat is one of the
most difficult things In nature to un
derstand.,. It is as mysterious as elec

Heat Is not a substance. It is mere

material Is made up of molecules, and
each molecule Is composed of atoms.
Molecules of matter are held together
by a force called "cohesion."
At absolute zero, colder yet than
liquid air, or minus 270 degrees, all
molecules are at rest. As the tem
perature rises the molecules begin to
move to and fro. The higher the tem temperature

The biggest waves In the world are
termed bv scientists earthauakes. soli-
tary ocean and cyclone storm waves, a
writer In the Boston Post says. Of
these abnormal waves the biggest are
those caused by submarine earth
quakes. Some people who have seen
these tremendous walls of water have
estimated their height to be as much
as 210 feet, but It seems probable that
this is an exaggeration. Probably
earthquake waves do not ever reach a
height of more than 80 feet. A big sub submarine
marine submarine earthquake draws the ocean
water away from the land for a long
distance. Then the mighty wave comes
smashing shoreward, probably the
most terrific engine of destruction
loosened by nature, destroying every everything
thing everything In its path.
