boards should co-operate very closely closely-ei

powers. We might take, a hint fro in
our British friends, that pur own re-
atljustment is of first importance.
Our finances should be handled with

this is probably to remain only a pros

Secretary Glass' plans abqut the

The Best Way to Treat
BY S. C. BABCOCK, M. D.
The medical books name many drugs
that will move the boweb. The drug store

purgatives and -pills. The trouble with
most of them 13 the after-effects. Con Constipated
stipated Constipated people know that pills work all
flight for a little. while, but they soon lose
men enect, and a change has to be made
to something else. The constant taking of
pills results in a form of bowel inactivity
that is difficult to cure. The system be becomes
comes becomes so accustomed to laxative drugs
that the organs just won't work without
them, and so the pill habit becomes as bad
as constipation itself. Dr. Pierce, of Buf Buffalo,
falo, Buffalo, N. Y., seems to me to have the right
idea. He says the boweb should first be
gently moved with Pierce's Pleasant Pel Pellets,
lets, Pellets, and in the meantime laxative foods
only should be eaten. Figs, prunes, olive
oil, spinach, bran,' vegetables and fruits are
thoroughly, eat little meat, and be as
active as possible. Now, doesn't that
seem sensible? Pleasant Pellet will start
the bowels working riht: then it is up to
you to keep them right by right eating.

Internal Revenue Officials Will Make
Things Eas for You if

Washington, Feb. 19. How does
Uncle Sam deal with tax dodgers?
This inquiry, which was prompted by
the severe penalties provided in the
new revenue bill, has brought from
Commissioner Daniel C. Roper a frank
statement as to the internal revenue
bureau's attitude toward those who
attempt to evade taxation.
"Any person who deliberately con conceals

is charged with the duty of hunting
him out and exacting the full punish punishment

"Toward the taxpayer who means

laws, fully and honestly, the bureau
