i Bullet-Pierced Bible Prized Memento
of Civil War.
One of the most precious posses-
sions in the family of Mr. and Mrs.
Samuel C. Gettig, of Madisonburg, is
a small Bible, with a bullet hole in it
and its leaves frayed and torn, but no
amount of money could buy it from
its owner. In fact both Mr. and Mrs.
Gettig feel sure that had it not been
for the Bible they would not have had
their long and happy life together.
Mr. Gettig served during the Civil
war as a corporal in Company A,
148th regiment, under Col. James A.
Beaver. While on the field he receiv-
ed a package and on opening it found
a small Bible sent him by Miss Susan
Yearick, his boyhood sweetheart. He
carried it in his knapsack and in an
engagement south of Petersburg, in
July, 1864, the Union army was over-
powered by the confederates and
forced to retreat. Company A was
bringing up the rear when Corporal
Gettig felt an impact on his back
which almost knocked him to his
knees. He felt certain he was wound-
ed but managed to make the breast-
works that had been hurriedly thrown
up as a stand against the enemy.
Then he removed his knapsack from
his back, searched for the supposed
wound, but was unable to find any.
Opening the knapsack he discovered
that a minnie ball, fired at close range
had ploughed its way into his knap-
sack and punctured the Bible to the
25th Psalm, and that undoubtedly sav-
ed his life.
Mr. Gettig lived to return home and
on July 26th,
Yearick and both lived to rear a fine
family of children and are still enjoy-
ing good health. Next month Mr.
Gettig will celebrate his 88th birth-

New Kind of Bread Makes Complete
Food at 23 Cents Per Day.
A nourishing bread that will amply
sustain life at the cost of twenty-three
cents a day has been produced by an
Austrian. The bread is made of herbs,
nuts, apples and other vegetable sub-
stance and baked into a hard brick.
Twenty-five grams of the bread eaten
without more ado than nibbling it is
sufficient for breakfast. Another fifty
grams during the rest of the day will
give vigorous life.
The cost of all this daily nourish-
ment is one and one half Austrian
schillings (23 cents.)
Dr. Stein, who compounded the
bread declares that for twelve years it
has been his only substance and that
he has completely done away with
kitchens and dining rooms. The eco-
nomic effect he declares has been to
reduce his living costs sixty per cent
and it has given him perfect health,
although he is sixty-two years old.

Excess Uric Acid Gives Rise to Many
Unpleasant Troubles.
UTHORITIES agree that an ex-
cess of uric acid is primarily
due to faulty kidney action. Reten-
tion of this toxic material often
makes its presence felt by sore, pain-
ful joints, a tired, languid feeling
and, sometimes, toxic backache and
headache. That the kidneys are not
functioning right is often shown by
scanty or burning passage of secre-
tions. Thousands assist their kidneys
at such times by the use of Doan’s
Pjlls—a stimulant diuretic. Doan’s
are recommended by many local peo-
ple. Ask your neighbor!

I'he Private ‘Branch Exchange
spells the highest development of
the telephone user's equipment
Or sTANDARD DESIGN only in its simplest forms, it varies
from a small board with a handful of telephones to a great
complicated switchboard large enough to serve a city of fifty
thousand people.
Its reach must be universal—across the office and across
the country.
Its flexibility must react to the peculiar and changing
requirements of the establishment employing it.
Its pitch must respond to every note of service struck by
the ten or ten thousand who use it.
; Specialized equipment, plus, it is an example of the increas.
ing accomplishment of the telephone—to speed and facili-
tate. to make the hard
job easy.
