world of good, as I am 62 years old and was

laxative herbs with pepsin that relieves consti

Sept. 30. (Night) The Belgian.Brit
ish advance in Flanders is continuing
rapidly, despite some of the most ter
rific fighting of the war. The British,
at one point, brought their gung up
and established them on. a ridge fac
ing the German battorics on another
ridge only 600 yards away. There the
opposingdtillorics .'bjazed away at
each other until the enemy guns were
entirely silenced. The Belgians have
taken Dixmudo, following street fight
ing which centered about the town.
Four fresh divisions are reportod to
have reinforced the Germans opposite
the Belgians, including the 100th reg

were captured, bringing the total tak

The British have taken about 100.
One British division advanced 12,
000 yards (about seven miles) in one
day. The British are well cast of Moor
slede (four miles southwest of Roul

eral entered Cheluvelt, astride a cap

north of Cambrai to St. Quentin is
bearing out the expectations that the
Germans would fight for every foot of

For their success in capturing Belli

YOU'VE got it every human being is born
with it your large intestine, or colon. It is
a large tube a reservoir or sewer intended to
collect waste matter and remove it from the body.
Plug it up with waste, neglect it, and you're sick
on your feet. The waste matter stagnates, under-
goes decay, fermentation and germ action. Dan
gerous poisons are produced, that can easily be
absorbed and carried all over the body.
Allow constipation to become established, and
you are liable to become definitely and miserably
' sick and not on your feet either. . You have 4
broken Nature's laws.
Better be kind to her." Keep the danger zone
clean, with a regular bowel movement, and Nature
',t will thank you, and pay you back in gold coin
health, good nature, and a feeling of eagerness for
your daily task.
A large proportion of almost every form of
sickness is caused or made worse by the poisons
produced as a result of constipation. '
Nujol has the approval of established medical practice,
because it does not upset the system as do pills, castor
oil and purgative mineral waters, salts, etc. It softens the
contents of the colon, making them easy for the intestinal
muscles to move at regular hours. Don't fight Nature.
