MR. AND MRS. BOWSER. Br Mssa. BDows . n: (DErnO?T Rns Sss.) I suppose Mr. Bowser is just like any other man around the house, and I' suppose it is a wife's duty to put up with a husband's niconsistdncies. The other day he came rushing in from the barn and asked: 'Have you seen the corkscrew anywhere within a day or two ?' SI don't remember.' ' Well, it's funny. I left it in here two or three days ago, and it ought to be here now. It's curious that I can'tlay a tool down with ou somebody eating it up !' SPerhaps it's in the lavatory.' He went rushing around for five minutes, and then came back to say 'If there's another house in Detroit run like this I'd like to see it !'

THE KEPLER EXTRACT OF MALT. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 17 November 1888

THE KEPLER EXTRACT OF MALT... The uses of barley in medicine have been. known for 2,000.years. Long before the Christian era it was the custom to makelbarloey into a "ptisan," and thus administer it. It is a grain richly abulndant in the powerful princi. plesthat build up tissues and impart strength. Fbm barley is obtained malt, which is an in valuable food. In manufacturing beeoor, the maltster allows fermenntation to change the imr. portant food principles of the barley into alcohol and carbonic acid. Thus for invalids, beer is of little worth, and often an injury; many malt extracts are made in the same way as heer, and should therefore be discarded. On the other hand, a good malt extract contains all the nutritive elements of the finest barley in a concentrated, preservable state, ever ready for immediate assimilation. The Kepler Malt Extract contains all these pricihpals-diastaso, phosphnates, albumrnoids, maltose, dextrins and salts. Tihe diefa.soin Malt Extract is a valuable ...

It is all about myself, hut I have remlurked that when a 1manl tells the honest truth about himself he is all the more likely to be of use to his fellow creatures. T'o begin, then, you must know I had long been more or less subject to attacks of bronlhitis, a complaint that you are aware is very common and trouble some in Great Britain in certain seasons of the year. Some months ago I had a very severe turn of it, worse, I think, than I eve. had before. It was probably brought on by my. catching .cold, as we are all apt to dd when we least expect it. 1Weeks passed by, and my trouble proved to be very obstinate. It would not yield to medicine, and as I also began to have violent racking pains in my limbs and back, I became greatly alarmed. I could n...
