People Notice It. Drive Them
Off with Dr. Edwards'
Olive Tablets
A pimply face will not embarrass you
much longer if you get a package of
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets. The skin
should begin to clear after you have
taken the tablets a few nights.
Cleanse the blood, bowels and liver
with Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets, the
successful substitute for calomel; there's
no sickness or pain after taking them.
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets do that
which calomel does, and just as effec
tively, but; their action is gentle and
safe instead of severe and irritating.
No one who takes Olive Tablets is
ever cursed with "a dark brown taste,"
a bad breath, a dull, listless, "no good"
feeling, constipation, torpid liver, bad
disposition or pimply face.
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets are a
purely vegetable compound mixed with
olive oil; you will know them by their
olive color.
Dr. Edwards spent years among pa
tients afflicted with liver and bowel
complaints, and Olive Tablets are the
immensely effective result
Take one or two nightly for a week.

"Wear Men's Garb
Lincoln, Neb,, Oct. 19.—Neither i
the law of man—at least in Nebras- I
ka—prevents women from wearing I
men's clothes when they are engaged

Tyrone People Up Against
Twenty-Cent Shaves and
Fifty-Cent Haircuts
[Trainmaster Freeman Trans
ferred From Tyrone Divis
ion to Phila. Office
Tyrone. Pa.. Oct. 19.—The "Bar
ber Trust" seems to have the town
In its grip, and the culmination of
the entire matter will be either long j
hair and a beard all over the face I
will be the proper style or else the j
barbers will go out of business. For,
despite the steady raises in prices j
at various times in the past twelve !
months, the tonsorial artists now j
announce another distinctive raise, j
The price is now 20 cents for a shave j
and BO cents for a hair cut. Jacob |
Hi Christine was one of the victims j
of the "flu" this week, and in him |
Tyrone lost one of her most promi- ,
nent and well-known citizens. For >
thirty-eight years he has been an '
engineer on the Tyrone division of j
the Pennsylvania railroad. Reu- i
ben B. Freeman, trainmaster of the !
Tyrone division, has been transfer- j
red to Philadelphia, into the office i
of the general manager. He en- :
tered the service of the company in
1876, and for nineteen years has'
been the trainmaster of the Tyrone j
division. Once again may it be re- •
corded that Tyrone went over the
top, and on this occasion it was the !
campaign for the sale of the Liberty
Bonds of the fourth issue. This I
time the borough's quota was almost \
twice the allotment of the third loan, j
The quota for the town was $235,326
' and already over $300,000 has been |
j subscribed. The railroad men of j
j the Tyrone division of the Pennsyl- j
| vania railroad far exceed their total j
I of the last loan. One more gold
' star goes in the service flag of the
! town. Hardly a week passes now
I that one of, the boys from here over
I there but makes the supreme sacri
fice for their country and humanity.
