If you buy a Christmas present.
Buy it now!
If it be for prince or peasant,
Buy it now!
Buy it early in November,
Or at least before December;
You'll be glad if you remember—
Buy it now!
While the counters stretch before you,
Buy it now!
While there are no crowds to bore you,
Buy it now!
Buy before the air is stuffy,
Buy before the girls are huffy,
Buy while things are fresh and fluffy—-
Buy it now! ’
Tarry not until tomorrow,
Buy it now!
Even though you have to borrow,
Buy it now!
See that shop-girls don’t have reason
To abhor the Christmas season;
Put a conscience, if you please, on—
Buy it now!

From Its Dreadful Pains and Aches,
Is properly to be sought in a good
blood medicine, because authorities
say rheumatism is a blood disease;
acid has entered the blood, settling
in the muscles and joints. That's
what makes the sharp, sudden, shot-
like pains, causing you to jump and
cringe in agony.
Hood’s Sarsaparilla comprises rem-
edies that every physician prescribes
for rheumatism, combined with other
blood-purifying, tonic and strength-
building ingredients in a formula
vastly superior in make-up and in cur-
ative power. It does give positive re-
lief. Thousands say so. So will you.

WORSE THAN ANCIENT FORMS
Oldtime Ordeal by Fire and Water
Declared Eclipsed by That of
Those who opine that the widely ad-
vertised ordeals and trials of the olden
days were the only simon-pure speci-
mens have another opine coming to
them. Their opiners, I may say, are
badly out of kilter, writes Kenneth
L. Roberts in the Saturday Evening
Post. There was a time when I could
shudder as with the palsy at some
of the trials upon which mankind
deliberately embarked before the old
world had become as shopworn as it
now is; but now that I have looked
more deeply into the matter I can’t
get a shudder out of any of them.
They weren't genuine, blown-in-the-
glass articles at all. Anybody could
beat the game. There was always
a little shop up an alley where for a
certain consideration one could buy
fireproofing material guaranteed to
carry him safely through trial by fire,
or an imitation stomach which could
be lowered cunningly down the throat
so that trial by poison could be safely
negotiated, or asbestos paint of such
potency that after three coats had
been applied to the soles of the feet
the owner of the feet could not only
skip lightly across nine red-hot plow-
shares, but could even do a marathon
on them if the occasion demanded it.
No; the gentlemen back in the dark
ages who went through fire and water
in order to demonstrate their worthi-
ness to tall willowy blonds who lived
in unheated stone castles and were
therefore subject to inflammatory rheu-
matism were not so hardy and reck-
less as some people suppose. And
there is a present-day trial which
makes those cleverly press agented
trials of the moldy past look rickety
and undernourished and nauseated. I
refer to that celebrated European or-
deal known as trial by travel.
Chinese Tea Myth.
An interesting myth has been woven
about the 5 o'clock “tea.” According
to a Chinese legend, tea was discov-
ered by a son of an Indian King,
Darma, who in 519 A. D. paid a semi-
religious visit to China. To prove his
religious fervor, Darma led an austere
life, ate only vegetables, and prayed
constantly. He vowed never to sleep
that he might devote all his time to
prayer, but one day, after many years,
he was overcome with drowsiness and,
against his will, slept. On awakening.
he wept bitterly. To show his re-
morse he cut off his eyelids. The next
morning he found the eyelids metamor-
phosed into two shrubs called “chaa,”
the Chinese for eyelids. The moral of
this legend points out that Darma
chewed some of the shrubbery and
learned its arousing properties. In
1639, the Chinese presented the “chaa”
or “tea” leaves to the czar, and later
they were introduced into London.

An Ancient Secret From
A PITTSBURGH MAN
With Rosy Cheeks and Sparkling
Eyes; Uses a Simple Plan to
Fight Off Disease and Old Age.
H. H. von Schlick is known to mil-
lions of men and women as a human
He gave the secret of his change
from a sickly sufferer to a strong, en-
At 40 Mr. von Schlick, a wreck from
disease, chanced to meet Boris Maro-
keff, a native of Bulgaria.
Marokeff, at 96 years, was a physi-
cal giant, with mind clear, eye keen,
complexion ruddy and enough health
for a dozen people.
Marokeff explained that in his counr-
try the natives never depart from na-
ture in forming health plans. The
rugged children are kept in condition
by a combination of herbs which help
free the system of poisons, purifies
blood and kidneys, keeps stomach in
condition and regulates the liver.
«Pll make it for you,” he told Mr.
von Schlick. “It is composed of
leaves, barks, roots, seeds, herbs and
flowers of different plants. You will
note a new feeling. You will begin to
be a new man.”
Mr. von Schlick tried this - nature
tea; Marokeff’s formula was a great
discovery for healing the sick. He
took on a new lease of life. Today at
near 60 he is younger than when he
began using Bulgarian Blood Tea at
Von Schlick secured the herbs from
Europe, Asia and Africa. Von Schlick’s
sickly wife became strong. She gave
it to women friends. Mr. von Schlick
consulted physicians, who tested its
merits and who today are using it
The fame of Bulgarian Blood Tea
spread. Today it is used by hundreds
of thousands of sufferers in every
state in the Taio fighting off old age
weaknesses. They include happy girls
budding into womanhood or women
crossing precarious thresholds of life.
All praise and recommend it. Men re-
cover their strength and vitality, the
fire and spring of good health returns
to those who were in despair.
During the Influenza epidemics of
1918-19-20, thousands of sufferers from
this dread disease found prompt re-
