OF BENEFIT TO ALL
Kasparilla is the name of a new remedy
most successfully prescribed for a "world
of trouble.' For derangements of the
digestive organs it is a natural corrective,
operating directly upon the liver and ali
mentary canal, gently but persistently
stimulating a healthy activity. Its bene
ficial influence extends, however, to every
portion of the system, aiding in the
processes of digestion and assimilation of
food, promoting a wholesome, natural
appetite, correcting sour stoniacu, Daa
breath, irregularities of the bowels, con
stipation and the long list of troubles
directly traceable to those unwholesome
conditions. Kasparilla dispels drowsi
ness, headache, backache and despond
ency due to inactivity of - the liver,
kidneys and digestive tract. It is a
strengthening tonic of the highest value.
If it fails to satisfy we authorize all
dealers to refund the purchase price.

Wh .ii a man decides to sell his farm cr home, or any of his real
estate ho dings it Is generally the case that the sooner such aale
can ba consummated the better. If this is fie situation It re
solves Itself Into a very slmplo business proposition, vis.: How
can I ;et a deal on this In the shortest time?
Now the selling of land Is not everybody's business, bo It la
natural t) go to someone whe makes this hU particular business.
Then the question arises: Where shall I go? Now that la where
we come in. We believe that we can make the assertion with
out contradiction that we are better situated to bring about a
quick na!e than any one else in the valley.
We know this County from one end to the other; in fact If
there Is any piece of deeded land that we do not know we
wo -ilil pay something to be' shown." We are In touch with a
considerable number of prospective buyers whom, we are sim
ply holding off till conditions are such that the country can be
seen to the best advantage, therefore doesn't it naturally follow
that we should be In a position to do business for you if anyone
can? We think so, and It you are inclined to doubt this, give
us a trial. Give us an option on your land and If we don't
make good there'll be a good and sufficient reason for our fail
ure. Our orfice is next door to the Post Office. Drop In and pay ua
a visit when in town whether we do business for you or not.
You're always welcome whether you find us at home or some
where else. Yours very expectantly,
