market. Mr. Manning is a large
grower of the crop himself and is
j sufficiently versed in the marketing

worth consideration in the forma

Master Bryant Bennett Carstar
phtn celebrated his sixth birthday
on Tuesday at the home of his par
ents onJSmithwick Street. A few
oi his little friends bad been invited
to enjoy tlie occasion with him,
and these came and had loads of
fun with the young host, who is
one of the most attractive little
boys in the town. Each guest
brought some token of friendship,
which made two glad—the donor
and the recipient. At sev£n o'clock
the little folks were invited into the
dining room where the guest table
was brilliant and beautiful with
candles, fruit and the birthday cake 1
ornamented with six candles and
large red cherries—the nearness of
Washington's birthday furnishing
the schene for the decorations.
The place cards were painted by
the young host, who has remarka
ble talent, and bore a hatchet on
one side and a bunch of cherries on
the other. They were tied • with
red ribbon and contained the name
of the host with the dates 1907- lgi 3.
A delicious menu was served, the
birthday cake was cut and together
with ice cream, delighted the merry
children. Later the entire party '
went jto the picture show, where
seats ! had been reserved by the host 1
for his friends. This was, perhaps
the youngest theatre party ever ;
given here, and was thoroughly 1

MEANS LAZY LIVER
A Laiy Liver Needs a Dose of Dod- (
son's Liver Tone —Guaranteed
to Take Place of Calomel
When your doctor look 3 to see if
your tongue is coated, he is trying
to find out if your is working prop
erly. A few years ago doctors had
to prescribe calomel-there was noth
ing else to give.
Recently in many sections of the
country Dodson's Liver Toue has
practically taken the place of calo
mel as a liver remedy. Dodson's
Liver Tane is mild, pleasant tasting
and haimless—which makes it a
fine medicine for use when your
children become bilious and costipa
ted. But the most remarkable fea
ture of Dodscn.s Liver Tone is the
fact that Saunders & Fowden who
sells it, guarantees it absolutely.
The druggist will return your
money without argument if a bottle
fails to give entire satisfaction.
L. Price, 50 cents. We suggest that
you get a bottle today and have it 1
ready for the next member of your I
family whose liver goes wrong.
