There is a heavy tax on our income to meet the Gov
ernment's running expenses, and interest on the public
debt. This tax we all mu3t, can, and do meet.
There is another tax which money will not discharge
the tax on our physical system from stagnation of food
waste. Its name is Constipation. It burdens us and
makes sluggish a system otherwise perfectly healthy.
Nujol will fully clear this' tax. Nujol will keep the
poisonous waste moving out of the body by this en
tirely new principle it works on the waste matter
instead of on the system. Every other form of treat
ment either irritates or forces the system.
Nujol prevents constipation by keeping the food waste
soft, thus helping Nature establish easy, thorough bowel
evacuation at regular intervals the healthiest habit
in the world.
It is absolutely harmless and pleasant to take try it.
Nujol is sold by all druggists in bottles only, bearing Nujol
trade mark. Write Nujol Laboratories, Standard Oil Co. (New

Why Measles May
A FEELING OF SECURITY
This is No. 3 of a series of advertisements, prepared br a com
petent physician, explaining how certain diseases which attack
the air passages such as Pneumonia, Influenza, Whooping
Cough, Measles or even a long continued Cold often leave
these organs in an inflamed, congested state, thus affording a
favorable foothold for invading germs. And how Vick't Vapo
Rob may be of value in this condition.

with a broken back, sustained in

Few of us escape measles it
is one of the commonest of child
hood diseases. Everv mother
knows the symptoms, but the
mistake that most mothers make
is in failing to realize that the
child is not fully recovered after
the eruption and fever disappear.
The air passages are still inflamed
and if this inflammation is not
cleared up, the air passages may
be weakened, thus paving the
way for pneumonia or serious
disease of the lungs.
Nightly applications of Vick's
VapoRub will aid nature in
relieving this inflammation. Be
cause Vicks acts locally by stim
ulation thru the skin to draw
out the inflammation, attract the
blood away from the congested
spots and relieve the cough. In
addition, the medicinal ingre
dients of Vicks are vaporized by
the body heat. These vapors
are breathed in all night long,
bringing the medication to bear
directly upon the inflamed areas.
Children's digestions are deli
cate easily disturbed by too
much "dosing." Vicks, there
fore, is particularly recommended
since it is externally applied and
so can be used often and freely
without the slightest harmful
Vicks should be rubbed in
over the throat and chest until
the skin is red then spread on
thickly and covered with hot
flannel cloths. Leave the cloth
ing loose around the neck and
the bed clothes arranged in the
form of a funnel so the vapors
arising may be .freely inhaled.
If the cough is annoying, swallow
a small bit of Vicks the size of a

The wisdom of the ages placed in a
little sugar-coated tablet Sulpherb
Tablets! Remember grandma's rem
edy sulphur and cream of tartar
mixed in molasses it was a nauseous
dose, but it saved thousands of lives
by purifying the blood in the Spring.
Thousands avoided rheumatism and
serious fevers by taking it. Now you
can get the benefits by taking a little
tablet regularly containing the blood
purifying, system regulating medi
cines that grandma relied on.
Constipation, inactive kidneys are
overcome and catarrh, neuralgia, rheu
matic pain and many other "poison
symptoms" vanish after a course of
Sulpherb Tablets. The best medicine
for spring lethargy and thick, slug
gish blood. Every package is guaran
teed to satisfy or money back. 60c in
sealed tubes of druggists everywhere.
Be sure to get genuine Sulpherb Tab
lets (not sulphur tablets.) Adv.
