You can gradually reduce the dose. Reduced dosage is the secret of teal and safe relieffrom constipation. Just ask your own doctor about this. Ask your druggist how popular liquid laxatives have become. The right liquid laxative gives the right kind of help and the right amount of help.

People who have experienced this comfort, never return to any form of help that cant be regulated I The liquid laxative generally used is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. It contains senna and cascara, and these are natural laxatives that form no habit. It relieves a condition of biliousness or sluggishness without upset.

Husband Why, he didnt have Dy ANNA McCLURE SHOLL ear Doctors Know! In particular about that Mr. Jones? Husband Yes, his whiskers and On her way to a faculty position In Lostland Academy, Janet Mercer meets Prof. Arthur Fleming, also on his way to the Academy. At the school they are struck by an air of mystery pervading the place. Gordon Haskell, proprietor, welcomes them. Wilton Payne completes the Academy faculty. In a schoolroom Janet finds a group which the teachers had supposed were scholars, are wax figures. Haskell explains unusual circumstances connected with the conduct of the Academy. Among the pupils Is Berenice Bracebridge, daughter of the late owner of the school. The story of the tragedy of Lostland Academy is that of two sisters and two brothers of Berenice, who lost their lives In the water, at the same moment, some years ago. The wax figures were modeled In the likenesses of the four children, and Doctor Bracebrldges will provided that they must be preserved. Payne learns from Berenice that the uncouth giant whom Janet had seen with Haskell Is named Balder, and Is a valuable servant. From an old farmer, Jerry Moore, the only witness of the drowning of the children, Payne learns particulars of the tragedy. He begins to take an Increasing Interest in Berenice, as Fleming does in Janet. Heading diaries kept by the late Dr. Jethro Bracebridge, Payne senses something sinister in the drowning of the children. In the belfry of tbe old church he finds a long discarded Christmas tree. Its presence puzzles wax figures were stored. Berenice How on earth did it get there? He had a pitchfork In his left hand should go there when she wished.
