A NEW YEAR.
LIKE a new-born babe looked at
by a fond parent, each new year
is viewed with an eye to its possi
bilities at various stages throughout
its life. One likes to look forward
to its spring, when its blithesome
ness and gayness will bring joy
and happiness, when the buds will
bulge with growth and break forth
in beautiful blossoms. Then the
summer when the long working
days and the sun's ripening rays
bring anticipation of the rich crops
to be harvested in the fall. And the
winter, with all tasks well complet
ed and the larder well stored, to con
template on the gray serenity of
the landscape and the successes of
the seasons agone.
Would that all the battles in 1934
would end in triumph and victory.
But some must lose while others
win. Life is like that Should ev
ery venture end in success, the win
ter would be serene, indeed, no mat
ter what woe in the wind, or how
lashing the blizzard's chill.
Fear of reverses lends no zest to
adventure, and "nothing ventured,
nothing gained." It takes a brave
heart to resolve anew; to forget
those embittering; experiences of
the past. But he who could sit un
troubled in the firelight's glow at
the end of 1934 must resolve once
more, and with resolution and de
termination follow a sound course
to the year's conclusion.
High hopes are held for stripling
1934. May his memory give them
fulfillment in retrospect.
A year ago cotton was five cents a
pound and the growers thought ten
cents would be a good price. Now
it is ten cents and they want more
because the price of the things the
cotton grower has to buy has risen
as much, if not more. But if cot
ton went to twenty cents what
would prevent other prices from
g9ing up too? It would be a happy
world if we could have inflation for
what we sell and deflation prices
for what we have to buy.

HUNDREDS of thousands of people now own

think of the car, you might say we are prejudiced,
so we let the car and its owner tell you.
Economy of operation is one of the first points
they will emphasize the owner will boast of it
and the car will prove it.
The 1934 car is even better than the 1933
and that was our best car up to its time. The new
car is more beautiful faster more powerful
gives more miles to the gallon better oil
economy is easier riding cheaper to own and
operate than any car we ever built.

Why Hospitals Use
a Liquid Laxative
Hospitals and doctors have always
used liquid laxatives. And the public
is fast returning to laxatives in liquid
form. Do you know the reasons?
The dose of a liquid laxative can be
measured. The action can be con
trolled. It forms no habit; you need
not take a "double dose" a day or
two later. Nor will a mild liquid
laxative irritate the kidneys.
The right liquid laxative brings a
perfect movement, and there is
no discomfort at the time, or after.
The wrong cathartic may keep
you constipated as long astyou keep
on using it I And the habitual use of
irritating salts, or of powerful drugs
in the highly concentrated form of
pills and tablets may prove injurious.
A week with a properly prepared
liquid laxative like Dr. CaldwellV
Syrup Pepsin will tell you a lot. A
few weeks' time, and your bowels
can be "as regular as clockwork."
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is an
approved liquid laxative which all
druggists keep ready for use.lt makes
an ideal family laxative; effective for
all ages, and may be given the
youngest child. Member N. Ft. A.
