SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 4, 1901. GET STRONG Vinol Makes Weak People Strong. WE GUARANTEE IT WILL DO SO. WE KNOW OF NO TONIC OR RE BUILDER LIKE IT. Vinol does create strength. We know that and have proved it in tn&ny instances. The reason Vinol rejuvenates and strengthens a person is that it acts directly upon the stomach, strengthen ing and toning up this great vital organ and enabling it to obtain for itself, from the food that is taken into it. the elements which are required to make firm healthy flesh and muscle tissue, sound bone structure and pure healthy blood. Vinol does this in a scientific way and is enabled to do it because it con tains, dissolved in a delicate mild wine, in a highly concentrated state, the act ive principles of cod-liver oil. Vinol does jt contain any of the grease that formerly characterized cod liver oil. hence is free from all the ob jectionable features which made it im possible for patients to take or retain that vile-smelling remedy into their sto...

Mr. Weller wrote: The facts arc: The subject of Personal magnetism, or Hypnotism, to which I have devoted many years of study, was recently mare forcibly than ever called to my atten tion through reading a scientific work on the subject, now being circulated by the New...

SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 4, lyoi. Books and Authors AN ALL-ROIND MAN The Outlook, of New York, in a recent is sue, pays a fine compliment to Dr. Burton, vt the state university, in a consideration of a volume of his poems published some time ago. Dr. Burton is an excellent illustration of what some have seen fit to call the new Americanism of the day. but which, after all, is not at all new. He is an all-around man. He is not only a poet who writes de lightful verses, but he is a college professor with a loyal and enthusiastic following and he la a staunch devotee of manly athletics— an expert hockey player, a yachtsman, a swimmer, a lover of golf; while as for foot ball it will be hard to find a man more de voted to the gridiron when the October frost is in the air. This development of the all-around feature of the American of to-day is one of the help ful, and one of the inspiring, features of our modern life. It Is an open, free, untram meled life, giving a man fullest play. It is t...

Entire batches of papers had to be re jected because the stories were not told by "Uncle Jack." Any kind of a story, even a fancy tale, was permissible, but the topic stated that they must be related by "Uncle Jack." Many merely told an amusing incident or an original remark. "Once upon a time stories" were desired or those apparently told by an older person to those younger. One-half of the seventh and erght grade stories are true and some of those that seem the most impossible were marked true. "Uncle Jack," in some cases, was like a cat and had more than his share of lives.
