Just as the equivalent light of 32 candles is concentrated in one electric lamp, so the vital elements of beef- 'of many pounds of beef-are concentrated in a single bottle of Bovril. But-Bovril is not merely a precious food in itself; it possesses the peculiar power of enabling you to extract more nourishment from other foods. This gives Bovril its wonderful body-building power, proved by independent ^periment to be from 10 to 20 times the amount taken. Btivril, therefore, in the true sense of the word, is a Great Food Saver. Always keep Bovril in the house. BoTril stands alone Johannes Von Koolbergen, tho big German who plotted with Von Brin'ck-en and Von Schack and Franz Bopp, in the San Francisco German consulate, to blow up bridges along the C.P.R. sytom in Canada, and thea confessed the whole plot to C.P.R. officials in' Alberta hi a long affidavit, is once again in the toils in the provincial jail here. This time it is on a charge of bootlegging. When the notorious plots were un-eartlied at San Francisco which sent the eminent Germans to jail (here, Von Koolbergen was languisiiing in jail hero under tho name of Von Mont-ford, on a charge of false pretences from Calgary. Ho told the whole story of the plots to the Lethbridgc Herald at the time. Later he was released and'went back to Calgary. He I became engaged in the bootlegging trade, hence his presence again in jaii here. He confesses that the bootlegging business is much more prol'ituble than plotting for the Kaiser's govern-ment.
