FOOD SOURING IN
Ends All Stomach
Distress in Five
Wonder what upset your slontaoh —
which portion of the food did ihe dam
ago—do youf Well, don't bother. If
your stomach is in a revolt; if sour,
gassy and upset, and what you just ate
has fermented into stubborn lumps:
head dizzy aud aches; belch gSses and
acids and eructate undigested food;
breath foul, tonne coated —just take;
'a little I'ape's Piapepsia aud in five t
minutes yon wonder what became of'
1 the indigestion and distress.
Millions of men and women to-day
know that it is needless to have a bad
stomach. A little Diapepsin occasion
ally keeps this delicate organ regulated
and they eat thei>- fa\orite foods with
, out fes 1- .
If your stomach doesn't take care of!
your liberal limit without rebellion;
if your food is a damage instead of a |
help, remember the quickest, surest, >
most harmless relief is Pape's Diapep-1
sin which costs ouly fifty cents for a'
large ease at drug stores. It's truly;
wonderful —it digests food and sets
things straight, so gently and easily j
■ that it is really astonishing. Please. j
for your sake, don't go on and on with j
a weak, disordered stomach; it's so un
yet it completely changed the lives of a
! girl and a man. A man's life was
I fanned out by fate, criminals were j
caught and punished, aud a battle of;
wits took place, while the mystery
'■ baffled New York City. The Earl of
Valietort iusisted that his daughter.
Lady Hermione, marry a Huugariau 1
Count. The Count saw a clear path to
the throne of his country. Money was
necessary; he must have wealth; thus j
J his choice of Lady Hermione. The Karl
himself had no money. When his wife
passed away she left every dollar, suid
a big estate it was. to her daughter.
| The Count promises to do wonders for
the girl if the latter would arrange to j
have his daughter marry him. The Earl
tries to force his daughter to marry the
Count, but he was not the man of her;
beart. so site escaped to America. She ;
considered the marriage vile, and would
avoid it at any eost. She took with her'
a plotting Frenchman, who was known
ito iter father. She was not aware of j
this at the time, so when sue arrived in ;
America, she decided to marry him. '
This fascinating story is handsomely il
lustrated in motion pictures at " the 1

itioa's new currency system and found!

The Secretary sent the following tele- !■
gram of congratulations to the Federal |
. reserve agent and governor of each of j
I the Federal reserve banks:
J "Please accept mv cordial congrat- |
ulations upon the opening of the Fed
eral Reserve bauk ot your district and i
my sincere eommeudation upon the ef- j
fective work you have done in prepar- !
ittg the bank for business in the short j
time allowed .'or the opening. 1 am I

i am sure that this deportment and the \

' your loyal 00-operation in the important I
work an.l duties which have been con

for your success."

An Unusual Stroke of Good
Fortune Makes Possible This
Sale of Imported White China
for Hand Painting
Wednesday, November 18th, 1914
Had it not been that we made early provision for this sale which we have
been accustomed to hold for our patrons at this time of year, we would have
been compelled to omit the event this year. Importers will tell you that since
the breaking out of war in Europe there have been no importations of china.
Nor will they hold out any encouragement to buyers that there will be any im
portations inside of the next two years.
We are, therefore, obliged to advise our patrons that this occasion will be
the last of its kind that we will be able to present, until conditions abroad adjust
themselves again. Those who have requirements of this kind should take ad
vantage of the present occasion which under the circumstances is of two-fold
importance, for notwithstanding the scarcity of the merchandise, we will offer
it in this sale at no increase in price.

I'pper class Swnhill women wear
; curious masks, which are made «C
leather and beads in a wooden frame.'
The mask is derived from the tradi
tional usage of Moslem women, who
must keep their faces cove»ed in thq
presence of men. For several cen
turies Arab traders have frequented
this Ea«t African coast, and to their
influence are due most of the civilized
customs found to-day among the na
tives of the district. The clothing wor.i
by these prosperous dames is of silk;
their shoes are partly of silver, an I
they wear much silver jewelry. The
Moslem* in Zanzibar, by the way. are
less fanatically strict about religious
usages than their brethren ill Morocco
an j Turkey.—Wide World Magazine.
