For H Torpid “Black-Draught is, in my opinion, the best liver medicine on the market,” states Mrs. R. H. Whiteside, of Keota, Okla. She continues: “1 had a pain in my chest after eatingtight, uncomfortable feeling—and this was very disagreeable and brought on headache. 1 was constipated and knew it was indigestion and inactive liver. I began the use of Black-Draught, night and morning, and it sure is splendid and certainly gives relief.” Thedford’s For over seventy years this purely vegetable preparation has been found beneficial by thousands of persons suffering from effects of a torpid, or slow-acting liver.

Ingenious Saffron Imitation. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
Ingenious Saffron Imitation. A curious and ingenious Imitation of Spanish saffron has been brought to light by chemists of the United States Agricultural department in a recent consignment of dyestuffs. Saffron, obtained chiefly from southern Europe, is a yellow dye consisting of the stigmas of the crocus, and, as more than 4,000 flowers are required for an ounce,. the material is somewhat expensive. Samples of the suspected Importation proved on analysis to be flowers of a common plant resembling the Scotch thistle. These had been colored with red and blue dyes, weighted with saltpeter, borax and glycerine, flavored with something like saffron oil, and crinkled to give a close resemblance to the dried crocus stigmas.

PLAGUE OF OLD EGYPT BACK Crops of Argentine Province Destroyed by Locusts That Swarm in Uncounted Millions. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 March 1921
PLAGUE OF OLD EGYPT BACK Crops of Argentine Province Destroyed by Locusts That Swarm in Uncounted Millions. Shades of the plagues of ancient Egypt! Santa Fe province of the Argentine now has complete faith in the biblical account of the scourge of locusts, for at times millions of these Insects “cover the face of the earth.” They come suddenly and without warning, In great clouds, and settle down on the country. Then the ground resembles a great moving carpet. Little damage is done at first, though the Argentinians find it Inconvenient to have locusts throughout their houses, but as the Insects move through the country, they dig small holes and lay their eggs. Soon the larvae are hatched, and at that time, before they can fly, they are destructive. By the Time they are ready to leave, every living thing in their path is destroyed.
