A bilious condition of the system is the result of inaction oi the liver, often causing severe' headache through the eyes and tcmpto, culminating some- times in oaosw and vomiunf, which is frequently followed by a bflleut diarrhea. 1 Abbcy'i Effervescent Salt, when taken as directed, stimulates the peptic glands of the etomach and increases the contraction of its muscles from above downward. action is com- municated to the intestines ana jn- creaies the flov of the intestinal juice, thus stimulating the ducts of the brer to pour out the bile, when it can be carried downward by the laxative action of the Salt, instead of remsuninf to up the iiyer and flow back into the stomach. Thus, if a pcrwn who is subject to Biliousness and Bilious Headache will use Abbey's Effervescent Salt, the natural action of the Stomach, Irver and intestine will be kept up and no bile can accumulate in the system.

The Niobe was not fortunate en- ough to run into any German war- ships.

Many prizes were captured during the first four months of the war. the Niobe leading the British navy up to three months ago in the number of prizes taken. One prize that the Niobe strove for was the capture of tlie German auxiliary cruiser and raider, the Prince Eitel Freidrich, but she ducked into Newport News, a neutral port, and finally decided to intern there. The night before her intern- ment, the Niobe patrolled from one side of Chesapeake Bay to the other at Ml speed all night, to prevent the raider from -escaping to sea again. It was during'this all night patrol that the .Niobe made better speed after 17 years of service than she had when she was turned out of the builder's yards.

WHERE COWS GIVE NO MILK Americans who travel through the interior of China greatly miss Cow's milk and her as a Japanese sign puts it. The people of the Orient use little ol cither. Mares' milk is sold to invalids at a high price because the Chinese believe that it is a source, oi great bodily strength. But the, natives use cows solely for draft purposes, and having earned her living for years in this manner, bossy stands upon her dig- nity when Americans demand milk ot her. To her offspring she will g' it, hut not to man, if by any possi- bility she can avoid it. One picture shows the lengths to which one family had to go in order to get milk. With three coolies to hold the little cow and another to hold the call, her owner succeeded in getting a cupiull once in a while but the struggle was too exhausting to he kept up every and he soon sold Ihe cow. In Japan there are now a few American-bred cattle, owned hy for- eigners, that make tlie native cows look like goats. One of these cows was imported into Korea by a mis- sionary, but he had difficulty in get- ting his coolie to tend the beast. The servant was fresh from his country home, where he had heard little and seen less. He took the cow.for _an elephant, and fled before her. In Ko- rea the little native cow is a petted darling that had been indulged to such an extent that, incredible as it seems, she refuses to eat grass un- less it has been boiled. It is not un- usual in very cold weather to see pet cow clothed in a thick, warm blanket, while the children of the iamily shiver in their cotton gar- often very few of them. the Youth's Companion.
