This is an invitation that no thin man or woman can afford to ignore. We invite you to try a new treatment called "Sargol" that helps digest the food you eat — that puts good, solid flesh on people that are thin and under weight.

How can "Sargol" do this? We will tell you. This new treatment is a scientific, assimilative agent. It increases cell growth, the very substance of which ourbodies are made—puts red corpuscles in the blood which every thin person so sadly needs, strengthens the nerves and puts the digestive tract in such shape that every ounce of food gives out its full amount of nourishment to the blood instead of passing through the system undigested and unassimilated.

Women who never appeared stylish in anything they wore because of their thinness, men under weight or lacking in nerve force or energy have been made to enjoy the pleasures of life—been fitted to fight life's battles, as never for years, through the use of 'Sargol."

If you want a beautiful and wellrounded figure of which you can be justly proud—a body full of throbbing life and energy, write the Sargol Company, 120-V, Herald Bldg. ,Binghamton, N.Y., today, for 50c. box "Sargol," absolutley free, and use with every meal.

But you say you want proof! Well here you are. Here is the statement of those who have tried—been convinced —and will swear to the virtues of this preparation.


"I hare made A faithful trial of the Sargol treatment and miiHt say it has brought to me new life and vigor. 1 have

fMined twenty pounds and now weigh 170 poanda. and. what B better. I have gained the days of my boyhood. It haa been the turning point in my life."

MRS. A. I. RODENHEISER writ..: "I have gained immensely aince I took Sargol, for I only weighed about 106 pounds when I began using it and now I weigh 130 pounds, so really this makes twenty-four pounds. I feel stronger and am looking better than ever before and now I carry rosy cheeks, which tSBOmethlngloouldneveraay before."


"Please send me another ten-day treatment. I am well pleased with Sargol. It has been the light of my life. I am

Setting back to my proiwr weight again. When I began totake argol I only weighed 138 pounds, and now, four weeks later, 1 am weighing 153 pounds and feeling fine.''

F. GAGNON writes:

"Here is my report since taking the Sargol treatment. I am a man 67 years of age, and was all run down to the very bottom. I had to quit work, as I was so weak. Now, thanks to Sargol. I look like a new man. I gained'22 pounds with 23 days' treatment. I cannot tell you how happy I feel."


"Sargol is certaintly the grandest treatment I ever used. I took only two boxes of Bargol. My weight was 120 pounda and now I weigh 140 and feel better than I have for 5 years. I am now as fleshy as I want to be and shall certainly recommend Sargol, for it does just exactly what you say It will do."

Full address of any of these people if you wish.

That's the substance of the leading article in the September Technical World, with reference to handling the Mexican peon on the fruit ranches of California. The owner found that the enterprise did not seem to go as it should. Contrary to all precedent, he permitted a new policy to be established—that of treating the peon just as if he were the self-respecting, independent individual that every man ought to be. What the result was the reader will find out for himself by reading this thoroughly absorbing article. Walter V. Woehlke is the author.


A startling new theory has been advanced as to the cause of so many aeronautic disasters. We all have heard of persons who, when on a high building, feel an almost irresistible impulse to leap out. Aviators, it is alleged, sometimes become so intoxicated by the ecstacy of the feeling that they are suspended in space that, for a moment, they forget all sense of danger, and, losing control of the machine, come to their senses only to find they are plunging helplessly earthward.


The average farm tenant has been declared by some a curse to the land. Now a new sort of tenant has appeared, who, leasing land for a fairly prolonged period, at the expiration of his lease leaves the land in such excellent condition that he could not induce the landlord to renew the tenure scarcely under any circumstances. This unique condition of affairs is entertainingly discussed by Forrest Crissey.



It was recently stated, on excellent engineering authority, that such cities as Chicago, New York and Philadelphia waste from forty to seventy per cent of the total water supply actually pumped. This means that such gigantic enterprises as the Ashokan dam recently constructed to enable New York to replenish its waning water supply would probably be unnecessary if care were taken in properly conserving the supply already at hand.

These are but four of the twenty big articles that will appear in the September number of the Technical World Magazine. In addition, it will be chock full of the briefer illustrated items that have proved so popular. This will be one of the strongest and best numbers ever issued.
