HOW DOCTORS TREAT COLDS AND GRIPPE Ask any physician or druggist and he will tell you that the best and only effective remedy for a bad cold, sote throat, influenza or la grippe is what he calls '"a brisk calomel purge," which means a big -dose of calomel at bed time. But as the old style calomel has some very unpleasant and dangerous qualities physicians and druggists gre now recommending the improved -nailsealess calomel, called "Calotabs," - which is purified and refined.from the sickening and dangerous effects andwhose medicinal virtues are vastly itsproved. - SOne Calotab on the tongue at bed time with a swallow of water-that's all. No salts, no nausea nor the slight. eat interference with your diet, pleas urea or. work. Next morning your cold has vanished and your entire system is purified and refreshed. Calotabs are sold only in original sealed packages, price thirty-five centsYour druggist guarantees Calotabs by refunding the price if you are not delighted.-Adv. - _ ful Â~ day. That would save one of the two pounds a month for some soldier." IUncle WV iily stirred hisl tea some more, and then he tood up at his chair, reached back on the sideboard for his tall silk hat. and waved it in the air. At the samne time he cried: "Hurray!" "Whkt's that for?" asked Nurse Jane, surprised like. "That," said Uncle Wiggil, "Is to show how glad I am that I can do something for the war, even if it's only to save a little sugar. After this. Nurse Jane, only give me half a level spoonful In my tea. I'll save the rest I for some soldier." Then, Mr. Longears inished his breakfast, and went out in the woods to look for an adventure, as he always did. He had naot gone very far before he met Mrs. Wibblewobble, the duck lady. She looked very sad. "What Is the matter?" aske? Uncle Wiggily. 'Oh, my little girl. Quick-Quack, has wandered off in thewoods and is lost!" said the duck lady. "I left her a minute, while I ran over to see Mrs. Bow Wow, the mother of Jackie and Peetie. the puppy dogs, to ask her how to make corn meal pancakes. When I came bhark, poor little Quick-Quack was gone! - on""Ht! L'll find her for you!" said jolly Uncle Wiggily, as he twinkled his pink nose like a atrawherrv shortcake. "I'll go look fot her. That will be an adventure for me." So, over the fields and through the woods went the bunny uncle gentleman, looking here and there for little Quick-Quack, the baby duck ~girl. But he couldn't seem to find her, and hb was Just going to hunt up a policeman Io. when. all of a sudden, as he passed near a hollow log on the ground, Uncle Wiggily heard a-voice saying: - "Oh. won't we have a dandy dinner?" "That's what we will I" said some one else! "All the sugar - want to eat, aend a little roast duck, too! Oh, this Isn our lucky day! I went around to a lot of grocery stores, and I bought all the sugar I could, making believe I didn't have asnltoh, and alt the while I had a lot. put away. Then I caught this little duck girl, When nO one was looking. and now-oh, what a fine meal we'll- have!" "And as sweet as we like, tool" said the first voice. "My goodness!" exclaimed Uncle Wiggily, "I wonder who these folks can be. and if they know a war is going on?" So he looked in the hollow log And he saw two great, big fat pigs, and in one corner of the room was poor little Quick-Quack, tied by her wings to a chair, s "Oh, my!" thought the bunny uncle gentleman. "No wonder such aniknms wouldn't try to save sugat--they're d lust the kind..too, that would steal gb little duck girl. But I'll fix -thelai" So Uncle Wiggily ran off through li the woods, arid he found a fireman and I a policeman dog, and told therm about the bad pigs, who were no relation at e; all to the nice pigs, Curley and iloppy t 'wlstytail. r1 "f'nvn w tith una r itri" n t 8 AL U S OMEWHERE in France, in beautiful chateau, sits a group from days in the trenches. the accmpaniment of the grandI bitterness of battle and their tired b of music, they are carried in mernor for whom they fight.
