THE TRUTH ABOUT
Bulgarian Blood Tea
Bulgarian Blood Tea is composed
of Roots, Bark, Leaves, Seeds, Ber-
ries, Plants and Flowers in different
amounts, and when assembled togeth-
er are put through a special treatment
which gives it the great power it has
over disease in the human body.
During the influenza epidemic thou-
sands of lives might have been saved
by taking Bulgarian Blood Tea steam-
ing hot, with the juice of half a lemon,
at bedtime. Men, women and children
can take this pure medicine for almost
any sickness. Millions of people are
taking it to fight off Colds, Grippe,
Influenza and Pneumonta, to sweeten
the stomach, clean out the bowels,
open up the liver, flush the poisons
from the kidneys and purify and en-
rich the blood.
No medicine that we know of is as
good as Bulgarian Blood Tea. Itshould
be in every home, ready for father if
he comes home with a bad cold or feels
sick; mother can give it to the little
children, it keeps. them healthy; and
mother, upon whose ghoulders the try-
ing care of the home falls, will find
that this rare medicinal tea will drive
away those sick headaches and keep
her in good health. Go to your drug-

The Yankees, who have been shar-
ing the Polo grounds with the Giants
for several seasons are about to build
a home of their own. Last season the
National League told Colonels Rupert
and Huston that they weren't partic-
ularly keen about continuing the pres-
ent arrangement. ii
The decision, however, merely has-
tens the plans American League mag-
nates had been entertaining, to get a
big yard of their own. :
The plans for the stadium are being
drawn with the idea of providing a
seating capacity of 80,000 spectators
and construction of the sort that will
make additions possible if necessary.
The Polo grounds also are to be en-
larged to seat about the same num-
ber. The Giant owners are not as
near to the completion of their plans,
however, as the Yankee bosses, who
probably will have the construction
work started this summer to have the
Plans ready for next season if possi-
Baseball crowds long ago outgrew
the capacity of the Polo grounds but
the cost of material and labor has been
so high in the past few seasons, that
the club owners could not carry out
any plans for improvements. Since
the grounds are becoming more pop-
ular as the battlefield for the big east-
ern football teams, the need was also
felt for a greater seating capacity.

LIVING WITHOUT WATER.
Whatever may be the fortune of the
zebras, which must drink at least once
in every twenty-four hours, and there-
for must keep in lion country, the gi-
raffes have not all to maintain them-
selves in such a life of terror. There
are giraffes that never see a lion. All
flesh-eaters must drink; but the gi-
raffes of the North Kalahari Desert
live for three parts of the year with-
out water! There is a pretty adven-
ture for you! Except in the rainy
season, there is no water for the gi-
raffe to drink, so he is for that period
a total abstainer from liquid in the
truest sense of the term. Of course,
he gets moisture, but it is from the
vegetation on which he lives. There
is water deep down beneath the burn-
ing sands, and the tree-roots reach it
and suck it up into their leaves. But
so far as a natural drink is concerned,
our long-necked friend has none for
three parts of the year.
We should say, offhand, perhaps,
that there is nothing else like this in
nature; but that is wrong. The gua-
naco of the Andes can very seldom
drink. But there are thousands of do-
mesticated animals which do not taste
one drop of water throughout a snow-
less, rainless winter. And that is in
the British Empire, in the Anglo-
Egyptian Sudan. There the herds-
men have great flocks flocks of sheep
and herds of camels which have to fol-
low the season’s vegetation. From
the middle of November to the middle
of February they are moving about
northern Kordofan, eating the winter
grass, and there is no water for them.
The herdsmen drink mainly the milk
of the camels and the sheep, and small
quantities of water brought from wells
a week or ten days’ journey distant.
The marvel is that, after this aston-
ishing and trying adventure, the ani-
mals return flourishing to kindlier
