get something that helps constipation.
No scientist, living fcr dead, con explain
these mysteries of Nature. Behind the
invisible life germ in each seed is hidden
the deep secret that nobody understands.
Everything growing out of the ground
seems intended for some use in establishing
natural conditions. Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo,
N. Y.. long since found out what is
naturally beat for women's diseases. lie
learned it all through trotting thousands
of cases. The result of his studies was a
medicine called Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription. This medicine is made of
vegetable growths that nature surely in
tended for backache, headache, weakening
drains, bearing-down pains, periodical ir
regularities, pelvic inflammations, and for
the many disorders common to women in
all ages of life. Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription is made of lady's slipper root,
blaok cohosh root, unicorn root, bluo
cohosh root and - Oregon grape root.
Women who take this standard remedy
know that in Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription they are getting a safe woman's
tonio so good that druggists everywhere
sell it.. -
Favorite Prescription should have the
ful confidence of every. woman in Anjorica
because it contains no alcohol and nv
narcotic Dr. Pierce knew, when he firai
made this standard medicine, that whiskey
and morphine are injurious, and so he hut
always kept them out of his remedies

A Standard Test for
The third of a series of three statements
9iWaTn eCds made Promjnent the question of a standard test fcr gasoline. On July
31st, 1918, President Wilson ordered a committee appointed under the United
States Fuel Administration to establish specifications and standards of test for gas
oline supplied to the Government. This committee consisted of the United States
Fuel Administration and representatives of the War and Navy Departments the
United States Shipping Board, the Director General of Railroads, the Bureau of
Mines, and the Bureau of Standards. Standards were adopted for aviation gasolL
(export, fighting and domestic) and for general motor vzz -r. !:-.d and sea.
The Gravity Test Discarded
The Government's Committee on Standardi
zation of Petroleum Specifications stated in its
report; "It till be noted that there are no grav
ity limitations' in the specifications for aviation
gasoline, nor in 4he specifications for motor
gasoline which are given later, for it has been
' found that gravity is of little or no value in de
termining the quality of gasoline." The stand
ardg adopted by the United States Government
re based on b-'" -?ints.
Boiling' Feints the Real Test
Gasoline is known to the refiner as one mem
ber of the petroleum family. He distinguishes
each member of the family, not by gravity, but
by boiling points. Gravity is a fleeting stand
ard of test, but boiling points are unchanging
in their value and always determine the quality
of the product Knowing them the refiner can
keep his product uniform and reliable.
What Is a Boiling Point?
A boiling point is the temperature at which
a liquid will begin to boil or vaporize.
In distilling a given quantity of gasoline the
refiner ascertains at what point each 10 per
cent will boil, until the entire quantity is evap
orated or distilled. In this way he determines
what is known as the initial boiling point, as
well as- all intervening boiling points in the
chain, up to the maximum, higL boiling point.
Boiling Points Tell the Story
Boiling points determine the vaporizing and
combustive qualities of gasoline. They decide -the
action of the gas developed from gasoline.
They are the only true measure of gasoline
An ideal gasoline has boiling points in a con
tinuous, uniform chain. There must not be too
many low boiling points, otherwise the loss in
storage by evaioauon would be great There
must be just enough low boiling points to va
porize freely and give easy starting. The higher
boiling points are necessary for quick accelera
tion, high power and long mileage.
As combustion starts with the lowest boiling
points and flashes on through the gas, the con
tinuous chain of boiling points from the low
to the high is necessary' for instantaneous,
full-powered combustion. Only a straight-distilled,
all-refinery gasoline can have the contin
uous, uniform chain of boiling points.
The United States Government
The United States Government Standard
specifications for gasoline are based on boiling
points- not gravity. Drafted as they were by
impartial Government experts, they are gener
ally considered, in the light of conditions today,
as the most practical standard -for gasoline.
They insure an efficient and satisfactory gaso
line and at the same time have due regard for
the best utilization of our petroleum resources,
and the maintenance of reasonable prices to the
Red Crown Gasoline Conforms
to United States Government
. All Red Crown gasoline now being supplied
in the Pacific Coast States is refined to con
form to the United States Government Stand
ard specifications. It is straight-distilled, all
refinery gasoline having the full, uniform chain
of boiling points necessary for full-powered,
dependable gasoline: Low boiling points for
easy starting, medium boiling points for quick,
smooth acceleration, and high boiling points
for power and mileage.
