heartily sick of them all and are go

"Come with your overalls, ready to

It is altogether probable that the
acton of this Newark concern in ad
vertising for Americans in the place
of Bolshevistic aliens will become
general throughout this country. A

dreds of hands, many of whom are

that the cure lies In plenty of fresh air, even If the temperature is away below

People who live in the smaller towns

"These two gifts of nature, so lavish

the menace of tuberculosis, or con
sumption, as it Is sometimes called.
But consumption is not unknown in
the rural districts. The death rate Is
sometimes as great In these sections as
in the more crowded localities, , chiefly
because of carelessness or Indifference
to laws of health. , ;

Tree-Trunks Made Cisterns.
The gigantic baobab tree of central
Africa, the trunk of which sometime
nttains a diameter of forty feet often
serves as a natural cistern, retaining
rain-water In large quantities in a
cavity formed at the, top of the broad
trunk. Taking the hint thus afforded
by nature, the AraTjs artificially hollow
out the J huge baobabs ; and -fill them
with water during the "prevalence of
rains, as a provision against the dry
season. These cisterns are in many
.cases twenty feet In height and eight
or ten feet In diameter.
Public Health Authorities Predict its
Guard Against it by Building Up
Pepto-Mangan Creates Rich Red
Blood and Increases Strength
Surgeon General Blue, of the Un
ited States Public Health Service, in a
recent statement from Washington,
warns the public that the much
dreaded influenza epidemic will pro
bably return" this fall and winter.
All medical-authorities agree that the
weak, bloodless, run-downf individual
is more likely to contract this (as well
as any other infectious disease) than
is the strong, robust, red-blooded man
or woman. In view of these facts, it
is wise to use every affort to build up
the blood and thus increase 4the bod
ily resistance to the invasion -of the
germs of the disease. Gude's Pepto
Mangan is an absolutely dependable
red-blood builder in all condititions of
lower vitality not due to serious dis
ease of the vital organs. Tt improves
the appetite, imparts color to the
cheeks, and creates new hope and
ambition in those who become pale,
weak, and, listless. Physicians recom
mend Gude's Pepto-Mangan. When
you order, be sure the word '? Gude's
is on the -package. 'Without
"Gude's,". it is not Pepto-Mangan.

Same Old Arithmetic.
Some university pi -lessors are talk
ing about getting out a new arithmetic.
However, our guess is that it will
bother the boys just as much to dis
cover how Jong it .will take one man
to build a wall IS feet long and "six
feet high and 12 Inches thick, if eight
men can build a wall three times that
size H four days. Arithmetic has al
ways been the castor : oil of school
life; they may fool with it as much
as they will but they'll . never find a
way to make it pleasant to take.
