Sudden changes of weather are especial-

The progress of gerofula during a nor- |

1t is probable that few people ever think |
of scrofula—its bunches, eruptions, and |
wasting of the body—without thinking of |
the benefit many sufferers from it have de- :
rived from Hood's Sarsaparilla, whose suc-

alone would be enough to make if what it |
is, one of the most famous medicines in i
the world.
There is probably not a city or town i

Italy's Lumber Requirements.
Destruction of the invaded district
of Italy, although bad enough, has not
been so great as anticipated. Unless
there is a tremendous industrial de-
velopment as a consequence of the
war, it seems likely that even with
favorable freight rates Italy's require-
ments in the lines of rough and sawn
lumber for ordinary commercial oy
will not exceed 2,000,000,000 to 2,500,
000,000 board feet a year.

He Lost His Hold.
The station master hearing a crash
{on the platform, rushed out of his
| room just in time to see the express
| that had just passed through disap-
| pearing around the curve and a dis-
heveled young man sprawled out per-
| fectly flat among a confusion of over-
| turned milk cans and the scattered
contents of his traveling bag.
| “Was he trying to catch a train?”
the station master asked of a small
| boy who stood by admiring the scene.
“He did catch it,” said the boy, hap-
pily, “but it got away again!”—The
