If one la to belie? the medical ex
amineri tbe reason a woman pays
more for tbe privilege of life insur
ance is tbat the is much more com
monly a victim of indigestion and
stomach troubles and the fatal ail
ments that spring from these causes.
It is not tbe acute attacks of disrate
that influence tbe insurance examiners
alone, but tbe constant feeling of
weakness, headache, indigestion and
stomach trouble. These things,
physicians say, kill more people than
many of tbe serious diseases.
For curative power in all stomach
trouble nothing else is as safe yet
effective, nothing elite can be so
thoroughly relied opon to relieve all
troubles of indigestion, as Mionu. It
is unlike any remedy heretofore un
known ; it is not a mete digestive tab
let ; it strengthen and restores to
natural action, the stomach aad

The expenditure of f 12 by the city for
the seed represents the total outlay for
tbe magnificent ground surrounding
the station building.
Under Captain Wllmot the firemen
graded and planted tbe lawn aud
watched it so carefully that there l
perhaps not a better one In the city. In
frviut of the building they planted a
flower lied, In the form of a Maltese

many hues, and In the center there la
a sum II century plant. Along the front
wall there Is n row of gladioluses aud

Overheard In a Georgia Kitchen.
Not long ago an old colored cook in
an Atlanta family was visited by one
of her friends, who had but recently

where both had been raised. The vis

cordiality and glveu a comfortable cor

Atlanta cook asked all kinds of ques
tions as to what had bis-u "gwlne on"

"What's cum er Mainly what use ter
