tines Dr. Thomas' Electric Oil with his
A Scientific Discovery That Is
Changing Food To Lite.
Why it is That This Food When Taken
Into the Stomach Does Not
Have To Be Digested.
But a short time ago some einine nt
scientists made a great discovery.
They discovered that fats and oils did
not fatten thin people. Everything
seems simple after some elss has found
it out. If we had thought, we would
have remembered that for ages doctors
have forbidden starch foods to people
who wanted to get thin. It follows
they ought to recommend starch foo ls
to people who want to get fat. Nobody
knows why they didn't do so. Nodody
knows why they all didn't do so now.
But they are learning. More are re
commending it every day. They are
beginning to believe iu Paskola, beoause
Paskola is a starch food.
It has long been known that starch
food is the most natural food for man.
Of the foui chief chemical divisions of
human food, viz : starches, fats, al
bumens, aud salts, aiarch is the most
important, fats the least important.
If we only had starch we could do
without fatty food. We would die if
we tried to do without starch food.
Many people are dying today becauss
their digestive organs cannot digest
starch food. They eat plenty of starch
but they can't digest it. Tney keep
thin. They keep getting thinner.
There is but one hope for them: Paskola.
One reason that Paskola will lely
them is because it is a pure starch foo l
Another reason is bsc iuso it is a pre
Nothing but starch food will ever
make you fat, strong and hearty. Meat
r aluminous food merely repairs waste
tissue. But even if it were predigested
it would not make you fat.
Paskola is only a pure starch pre-di-
gested food, combined with natural
natural vegetable ferments which aid
the digestion of other food.
Paskola is the only starch food which
wilt make a csnfirined thin person fat
Paskola creates au appetite for other
foods and helps your stomach to digest
hem. It also tones ut and gives
strength to the feeble stomach.
I he old, old notion about fats and
oils und fatty foods making a person
fat is fast fading away.
The most eminent scientists and
medical men have long since ceased to
believe la it. The rank and hit) of the
profession are fast following their example,
Lvenif fatty food could make people
strong and fat, all the good it would
do would be to well people, for it is
only well people's stomachs that can
stand it. Well people don't need food
that will make them fat. They are
generally fat already. If they weren't
f it, they wouldu t be well
It is just the people that need food
that will muke them fat whoie stom
achs can't digest fatty food. We can't
hght nature. Thin sich people have a
very general and decided aversion to
fats and oils. That ougnt to be suffi
cient proof to us that fat is not what
tbev want to make them well.
Even the thinnest and sickest people
Tbey like other starch food too. They
probably eat a good deal of starch food.
Nature allows thorn to do so. They
have no decided aversion to it. This is
proof that starch food is a good food.
lbe reason that the rood thin people
eat does not make tbem fat simply that
they do not digest it. 1 hey are sick,
they are sick and that is the sickness
they suffer from. Most dyspeptics can
not even retain starch food on their
stomachs. It ferments and forms a
noxious gas. Tbey are in the unhappy
of needing starch food so badly that
they are slowly dying for the want of
it, and yet they cannot digest it. The
most delicate stomaok can retain Pas
kola. The great difference between ordin
ary good starch food and Paskola is
that Paskola is prs-Iigested. Paskola
wonld make i you fat if you hadn't a
stomsch With a stomach no matter
how sick It may be, Paskola makes yon
fat all the quicker. Paskola is super
seding Cod Liver Oil, because it is
pleasant to the taste and is far more ef
fective in its operation.

respecting Psskola will be S3nt on ap

The Encyclopedia Britannica, with American Ad
ditions and Revisions is a work every family should
have. The price at which the enterprising TRIBUNE
offers it to its readers, combined with the easy plan of
payment, brings the Encyclopedia within reach of all.
No one eager to own this most valuable compendium
of knowledge need now complain that it is too costly. I
have examined the work and And the print, paper and
binding just what are wanted in a book of reference.
Any plan that, spreads the advantages of educational
facilities deserves the patronage and consideration of
the public. J. C. LANGS,
