Striving Night and Day to Counter Counteract

Glasgow (Correspondence of the
Associated Press). The shipbuilders
of Great Britain, who soon will be
turning out virtually nothing else but
standard ships and war vessels, have
one advantage over the shipbuilders
of the United States that will be. hard
to ovrcome. They have nearly all
their materials at their dock doors.
From the decks of ships in one of
the yards in the north of England,
for instance, everything used in the
construction of vessels is within
sight. Iron is extracted from .hills
that look to" be almost across the
street. Coal comes from the same
place. On the other side of the yard
are great coke ovens, smelters, fur furnaces
naces furnaces and rolling mills. Plates and
steel forms may be carried from thx
mills to the ships under construction
in carts drawn by horses. A single
company extracts the ore, prepares it
with its own fuel and sends it away
from its own plant as finished ships
' ready for the sea. There are many
sucn examples here in the north.
The success of more than one of the
shipbuilding concerns may be partial partially

Another had a large stretch of land

Carl W. Ackerman, who has been

latest issue of that journal, he says:
"The pacification of Mexico today
presents, in many respects, 4;he same
problem with which the United States
government had to deal after the
civil war. The Mexican bandits are
the Ku-Klux Klans of Mexico. Gen Generals
erals Generals Villa arid Zapata are the James
brothers. The difference is that in
the United States the bandits attack attacked
ed attacked American or national property; in
Mexico they destroy foreign prop property."

history of his own country. If he
isn't, his letters on Germany and
Mexico are very inaccurate The
James brothers were extraordinary
bandits, but they did not amount to
the one-hundredth part of one per
cent that either Villa or Zapata has
amounted to. They did not represent
a fraction of the South and most of
their depredations were committed on
Southern people. The Ku-Klux were
not bandits in any sense of the term.
They were white men who organized
to rid various localities of the South
from the tyranny of carpetbaggers
and misguided negroes. They never
pillaged, for the simple reason that
all the property around them was
their own or that of their friends.
They killed a few of the most obnox'
ious of the carpetbagagers and their
tools and terrorized the others and
then disbanded of their own free will.

-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
poison reabsorbed and taken into the circulation this
is called auto-intoxication. 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. Pierced 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 occasionally.
ally. occasionally. The kidneys are an eliminative orean 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.
