Down toward the deep blue water, marching to throb of drum,
From city street and country lane the lines of khaki come;
The rumbling guns, the sturdy tread, are full of grim appeal,
While rays, of western sunshine flash back from burnished steel,
With eager eyes and cheeks aflame the serried ranks advance;
And your dear lad, and my dear lad, are on their way to France.
A sob clings choking in the throat, as file on file sweep by,
Between those cheering multitudes, to where the great ships lie;
The batteries halt, the columns wheel, to clear-toned bugle call,
With shoulders squared and faces front they stand a khaki wall.
Tears shinem every watcher's cheek, love speaks in every glance;
For your deaV lad, and. my dear lad. are on their way to France.
Before them, through a mist of years, in soldier buff or blue,
Brave comrades from a thousand fields watch now in proud review;
The same old Flag, the same old Faith the Freedom of the World
Spells Duty in its flapping folds above long ranks unfurled.
Strong are the hearts which bear "along Democracy's advance,
As your dear lad, and my dear lad, go on their way to France.
The word rings out; a million feet tramp forward on the road,
Along that patch of sacrifice o'er which their father's trode.
With eager eyes and cheeks aflame, with cheers on smiling lips,
These fighting men of '17 move onward to their ships.
Nor even love may hold them back, or halt that stern advance,
As your dear lad, and my dear lad, go on their way to France.

A French physiologist described man as a "digestive tube with arrangements for locomotion and guidance."
It is commonly said that most people "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 intestines-poison
poison intestines-poison reabsorbed and taken into the circulation this
is called auto-intoxication. It is apparent, there there-fore,
fore, there-fore, 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 oneis made up
of May-applet 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.

ally. occasionally. The kidneys are an elimirtative organ and
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.

Silent is the house; I sit
In the firelight glow, and knit.
At my ball of soft gray wool
Two gray kittens gently pull 4
Pulling back my thoughts as well
From that distant, red-rimmed hell;
And hot tears the stitches blur,
As I knit a comforter.
"Comforter 'they call it yes,
Such it is for my distress;
For it gives my restless hands
Blessed work. God understands
How we women yearn to be
Doing something ceaselessly
Anything but just to wait
Idly foe a clicking gate.
So I knit this long gray thing
Which some fearless lad will fling
Round him in the icy blast,
With the shrapnel whistling past;

Like a mother's touch again,
And at night, in silence deep,
Be a pillow for his sleep.
