money still exchanges cent for cent

depreciated a very little.
Before tjie armistice was signed,
the British ; government and British
business men had plans made for
peace work, and the minute the guns
ceased to thunder the plans were in
operation. In America, almost three
months after the fighting ceased, we
don't seem to know what to do. One
cause for the indecision is the dilly dillydally

fooled away week after week on the
revenue bill and other unimportant
measures, j keeping the business men
and manufacturer uncertain what
policy to adopt. i
There is strong opposition to the
idea of American troops helping to
police the world. It is becoming the
long suit, of republican senators to
spout against it. And yet we suspect
that the average young American who
goes in the army and navy would like
nothing better. What is it any more

years ago. It would give a large

DAILY HEALTH TALKS
The Many Mysteries of
BY L W. BOWER, M. D.
You can take an onion seed and a pansy
seed, and plant them side by side in the
same spot of ground. In one case, you
get an onion, with its peculiarly strong
odor, and in the other you get. a flower of
rare beauty. You can plant a poppy seed
and get opium (a dangerous, habit-forming
drug), or you can plant a rhubarb seed and
get something that helps constipation.
No scientist, living or dead, can explain
these mysteries of Nature; ; Behind the
invisible life germ in each seed is hidden
the deep secret that nobody understands.
Everything 'growing out of the ground
seems intended for some use in establishing
natural conditions. Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo,
N. Y., long since found out what is
naturally best for women's diseases. He
learned it all through treating thousands
of cases. The result of his studies was a
medicine called Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription. This medicine is made of
vegetable growths that nature surely in intended
tended intended for backache, headache, weakening
drains, bearing-down pains, periodical ir irregularities,
regularities, irregularities, pelvic inflammations, and for
the many, disorders common to women in
all ages of life. Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription is made of lady's slipper root,
black cohosh root, unicorn root, blue
cohosh root and Oregon grape root.
Women who take thi4 standard remedy
know that in Dr. Pitrce's Favorite Pre Prescription
scription Prescription they are getting a safe woman's
tome so good that druggists everywhere
Favorite Prescription should have the
full confidence of every woman in America
because it contains no alcohol and no
narcotic. Dr. Pierce knew, when he first
made this standard medicine, that whiskey
and morphine are injurious, and so he has
always kept them out of his remedies.
