little record-smashing on her own ac
count One of her latest and greatest
achievements is the disoovery and ap
plication of a process for artificially
digesting food, so that it is absorbed
immediately by the system, without
imposing the least labor on a weak
tomnch. The food is called Paskoln.
It reBtorrs the debilitated and gives

I was constipated. When I first bagan

it up, thinking it would do uis no good,
because I had taken so much medi
