Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets—the sub

is almost instantaneous. They are the
result of Dr. Edwards' determination
not to treat liver and bowel complaint
with calomel. His efforts to banish it
brought out these little olive-colored
These pleasant little tablets do the
good that calomel does but have no bad
after effects. They don't injdre the
teeth like strong liquids or calomel.
They take hold of the trouble anil
quickly correct it. Why cure the liver
at the expense of the'teethf Calomel
sometimes plays havoc with the gums.
So do strong liquids.
It is best not to take calomel, but to
let Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets take its
place. *
Most headaches, "dullness" and that
lazy feeling come from constipation
and a disordered liver. Take Dr. Ed

Take a Glass of Salts Before Breakfast
If Tour Back Hurts or Bladder
Bothers You
The American men and women must
guard constantly asainst Kidney trou
ble, because wo eat too much and all
our food is rich. Our blood is filled with
uric acid which the kidneys strive to
filter out, they weaken from overwork,
become sluggish; the climinative tissues
clog and the result is kidney trouble,
bladder weakness and a general decline
in health.
When your kidneys feci like lumps
of lead; your back hurts or the urine 19
cloudy, full of sediment or you are
obliged to geek relief two or three times
during the night; if you suffer with
sick headache or dizzy, nervous spells,
acid stomach, or you have rheumatism
when the weather is bad, get from your
.pharmacist about four ounces of '.lad
Salts; take a tablespoonful in a glass of
water before breakfast for a few days
and your kidneys will then act fine.
This famous salts is made from the acid
of grapes and lemon juice, combined
with lithia, and has been used for gen
erations to flush and stimulate clogged
kidneys; to neutralize the acids in the
urine so it no longer is a source of irri
tation, thus ending bladder disorders.
.Tad Salts is inexpensive; cannot in
jifre, makes a delightful effervescent
lithia water beverage, and belongs in
every home, beeause nobody can make
a mistake by having a good kidney 1

Washington, March 11.- —How the
Berlin authorities are handling the fohd
eituation, distributing bread to the civil
population iu allowances of 4.-U)
pounds weekly to each person, is told
in a report just received by tie State
Department from Consul Julius G. Lay.
•'The negotiations .for the regula
tion of the bre<ad consumption of Great
er Berlin are at an end," says Mr. Lay.
"It lins been definitely decided to ap
portion the 4.4 pounds allowed each
| person weekly by means of bread cards.
The Mayor of Berlin, after a con
ference with the rectors of the city
schools has announced the, division of
the city into 170 bread districts. Each
one of these districts has 11,000 to
12,000 inhabitants. The bread cards
are not transferable and valid only
for Hie week of issuance.
How Bread Is Given Out
"The cards will be given only to a
single person and uot to whole fam
ilies. They are numbered, and those
| irtiued for the different weeks ure of
] various colors so as to overcome pos
| sibility of misuse. The punishments for
the misuse at' the cards are sufficiently
heavy to prevent bakers from giving
bread to persons who do not potm»ss
the proper cards. The amounts desig
nated on the cards are 25, 50, 100 ami
250 grams (o.SS, 1.76, 3.53 and 8.82
"The greatest difficulty encountered
by the authorities in actually working
out the bread question was the lack of
available means to .check hotels and
restaurants in meting out bread to their
patrons. For public places the question
is not yet entirely settled, but it is
thought that the day cards, will be
given out in the hotels and that in the
small restaurants payment will be ac
cepted for bread.
Difficulties of the System
"Another difficulty bus interfered
with the working out of this scheme
is the treatment of persons, such as
charwomen, seamstresses, etc., who are
employed iu a given household for only
an hour or two each day. Such persons
must either bring their bread or their
'bread cards with them.
"Hamburg arid other German cities
of over 2*5.000 inhabitants are consid
ering similar measure but as yet have
not followed Berlin's example."
London, March 11. —A wireless dis
patch front Berlin says a report has
been received from Rotterdam that the
British collier Beethoven, bound from

sunk either toy a torpedo or a mine.
