Harry Laurk-r has taken on another role—that of preacher—and bis first sermon was characteristic of tho homely nature of the n-.-.n. "There are no friends," he said during his discourse, "like your father and mother, your sisters and brothers." He went on to say that he had no patience with boys who "cheeked" their mother and father. "I am proud to *>ay," he continued, "that 1 have a son who never spoke back to his mother and father in his life. To begin with, if he had " Mr Lauder phonic his head grimly. But when the audi-mco b"gan to laugh ha joined in heartily. "Look on the sunny side of life. 1 have always lived on that side of the street." he concluded.
.Sufficient Unto tho Day.—Sandy was walking along the road in deep thought, and it was his minister who brought him to earth again with : "' Halloa, Sandy ! Thinking of the future, eh?" "No," replied our hero, moodily. " To-morrow's the wife's birthday, and I'm thinking of the. present."
WHY GOOD BLOOD IS RED
Why are we continually being told that good blood must be bright red? What has color to do with the quality? Just this. The oxygen in the air is tho great supporter of animal life. Olio bus : - Ties& of the blood is to take oxygen from the air (which it meets in t.he lungs) and deliver it to the tissues of the body. When the- blood, filled with life-sustaining oxygen, is sent out by tho heart it is bright red. When it returns filled with impurities, and deprived of its oxygen, it is dark.
From this it is clear that there aro two prime requisites of health, pure air and bright red blood—the pure air to furnish tho oxygen, the rich blood to carry it where it is needed. Dr Williams' Pink Pills make the blood rich and red because they increase its power to carry oxygen, actually making it so much more able to carry increased life and strength to every oigun of the body. Try these tonic pills and note the increased color in cheeks and lips; eee how your nerves become steadier, your appetite better, your digestion stronger, your step quicker, your troubles lighter.
