Women nurses are now installed in hospitals S miles in the rear of the actual fighting line. Many of our Canadian women are unable to lake up the duties of nursing at the front, but they should know how to take care of their own at home and for this purpose no better book was ever printed than the Medical Adviser-a book containing 1,008 pages, and bound in cioth, with chapters on First Aid, Bandaging and care of Fractures, Taking care of the Sick, Physiology, Hygiene, Mother and Babo, which can be had at most drug stores, or send 50 cents to Dr. Pierce, Courtwright St., Bridgeburg, Ont.

Pierce's Favorite Prescription to all . sufferers from woman's 'weakness.". -Mrs. innie SfrtcifraySl-^rtAur St. "Suicide by Inches" THOUSANDS of people commit suicide by inches! jj If one should take minute daily doses of some irritant or poisonous drug5 no particular effect might be noticed until accumulation of the poison made its action evident. Yet how many realize that irritant and poisonous substances are formed constantly, even in health, during food digestion and the preparation of its waste for elimination? If the bowels act regularly and thoroughly, such dangerous matter is safely gotten rid of. But if constipation exists, there results stagnation of intestinal waste, increased production of poisonous substances, and their absorption into the blood, which carries them all over the body. The result is disease or disorder, which, if neglected or allowed to continue, cripples or kills. The victim of such self-poisoning commits suicide by inches. Constipation is a bad habit. It is a siu against the body. But there is an even worse habit, a crime against Nature, the taking of pills, castor oil, laxative mineral waters, and salts to "force the bowels to move." Because such drugs do not cure constipation. They make roastipation a habit. They do not prevent "suicide by inches." On the other hand, the Nujol Treatment not only overcomes constipation, but prevents stagnation anil makes self-poisoniag impossible. Nujol is not a drug, does not act like any drug; it is absolutely harmless. Nujol helps Nature re-establish easy, daily, thorough, bowel evacuation. Warning: NUJOL is sold only in sealed bottles bearing the Nujol Trade Mark. Insist on Nujol. You may suffer from substitutes. Sendfor Instructive Booklet CHARLES GYDE & SON P.O.
