NEYS ARE DISORDEREDDoan's Kidney Pills Brought About a Complete Restoration. CHARLES EASTER, E. Locust St.. Watseka. 111., Kays: “Intba summer of 1904 Iwas attacked by pains in the small of my back and as the time passed, the trouble increased untilmy whole right hip was af- fected. For six months I could not sit in a chair and Iwas unable to sleep nights. Ilost forty pounds in weight and was so lame and sore that I could not raise my hands to my faje. I was languid, had no energy and was bothered by a shortness of breath. During all that time I doctored and used a great amount of medicine but to no avail. Hornet tales there was an almost complete retention of the kidney secre- tions and there was much sedimept in them. Mywife finally persuaded me to try Doan's Kidney Pills. They gave me such prompt relief that 1 continued taking them and gradually my condition improved. The trouble with mykidneys was corrected and my aches and pains were removed. Iam so grateful forthis cure that Icheerfully recommend Doan's Kidney Pills toother persons suffering from kidney complaint.” Painful Symptome— -Backache, side- ache, pains when stooping or lifting, sud- den sharp rheumatic pains, neu- ralgia, painful, scanty or too frequent urination, dizzy spells, dropsy.

QUEER WEDDING RING. R. L. Stevenson, writing in 1893 to Georg* Meredith, in an epistle quoted In his "Letters,” says, with heart touching pathos: "For fourteen years I have not had a day’s real health. I have awakened sick and gone to bed weary, and I have doae my work unflinchingly. I have written in bed and written out of it, written In hemorrhages, written in sickness, written torn by coughing, written when my head swam for weakness, and for so long, it seems to me, I have won my wager and recov- ered my glove. I am better now—- have been, rightly speaking, since first I came to the Pacific—and still few are the days when I am not in some physical distress. And the battle goes on—4ll or well is a trifle so that it goes. I was made for a contest, and the powers have so willed that my battlefield should be this dingy, in- glorious one of the bed and the physic bottle. At least I have not failed, but I would have preferred a place of trumpetings and the open air over my head.” According to excellent authority the muscles, in common with all organs c. the human body, have their periods of development and decline, our phys- ical strength increasing up to a cer- tain age and then decreasing. Tests of the strength of several thousand individuals have been made and the following figures are given as the averages derived from such tests: The lifting power of a youth of 17 is 280 pounds; in his twentieth year this increases to 320 pounds and in the thirtieth and thirty-flrst years it reaches its height, 365 pounds. At the expiration of the thirty-first year the strength begins to decline, very grad- ually at first. By the fortieth year it has decreased eight pounds and diminution continues at a slightly in- creasing rate until the fiftieth year is reached, when the figure is 330 pounds. Subsequent to this period strength fails more and more rapidly until the weakness of old age Is reached. It is found impossible to obtain trust- worthy statistics of the decline of strength after the fiftieth year, as the rate varies greatly in different indi- viduals. An African Tribe Whose Wires Wear a Heavy Drass Ornament. Among the Bayanzf, who live for many miles along the upper Congo, there exists a strange custom which would seem to make life miserable for the married women. Brass rods, which are the favorite currency in the coun try, are welded into great rings around the necks of the wives. Many of these rings worn by the women whose husbands are well-to-do weigh as much as 30 pounds, and this burden must be carried around by the poor women as long as they live. Frequently one sees a woman whose neck is raw and sore under the heavy weight, and in places the skin is rubbed off. This is a sure sign that the ring has been recently welded around her neck, for after a time the skin be- comes calloused, and then the strange ornament produces no abrasion. But the weight is an inconvenience; they never get used to it, and it is a per- petual tax upon their energies. In ev- ery crowd of women may be seen a number who ara supporting the rings with their hands, and thus for a time relieving their weary shoulders of the heavy burdens. It may be said that with every movement of their bodies the rings give discomfort. Once on, it Is no easy matter to get them off. The na- tives have no such thing as a file, and though they can hammer a lot of brass rods into one, it is very difflcut for them to cut the thick mass of metal in two. Women who Increase largely in flesh after the rings have been fasten- ed on their necks are in danger ot strangling to death, and instances ot this sort have been known to occur. Yet these women regard the cumbrous ornament with pride, Imagine that it enhances their importance and beauty, and wear the burden with light hearts CoulO't Stand Satire. A burglar while attempting to rob a bloated bondholder of Maryville by mistake got into the humble residence of an editor next door. After unsuc- cessfully fumbling about for suitable assets for some time he was disgusted to observe the tenant of t„<j house sit- ting up in bed and laughing at him. “Aren’t you old Sklndersen, the capi- talist ?” inquired the housebreaker. “Nary time,” chuckled the journalist. “I’m the editor of the Screaming Ea- gle." The Man-of-War Hird. The frigate pelican, or man-of-war bird, is usually met with by travelers in the tropics. Although when stripped of its feathers it is hardly larger than a pigeon, yet no man can touch at the same time the tips of its extended wings. The long wing bones are ex- ceedingly light, and the whole appa- ratus of air cells is extremely devel- oped, so that Its real weight is very trifling. It flies at a great height above the water, and from that elevation pounces down on fish, especially pre- ferring the poor, persecuted flying fish for its prey. According to some au- thors, the name of man-of-war bird was given to it because its appearance was said to foretell the coming of a ship, probably because the frigate peli- can and real frigates are equally ad- verse to storms, and both like to come into harbor if the weather threatens. "Jerusalem!" said the burglar, look- ing at his stemwinder. "And here I’ve been wasting four precious hours on this branch almshouse. I say, old quill driver, you never poke fun at your subscribers, do you?" "Not the cash ones." "Exactly,” said the burglar, taking out his wallet. "Here's six months subscription to call this thing square. If there’s one thing on earth I can't stand, it’s satire.” —London Tit-Bits. Trapping the Parana. William Morris did not always get his jokes right end first. In a biogra- phy of her huiband, Mrs. Edward Burne-Jones tells of the ease with which he reversed them. Mixed. Drinking «n< Smoking tn Korea. The Koreans are inveterate smokers of green tobacco, which they use in pipes with tiny bowls aud stems two or three feet long. They stick their pipes down the back of the neck when not using them. There is a deal of drinking, too, though they have many proverbs against it—"Heaven and earth are too small for a drunken man,” "White whisky makes a red face,” "There is no bottom to the appetite for drink.” A sergeant was once drilling a squad of recruits. They were Incredibly ig- norant. One of them could not tell his right hand from his left. The ser- geant proceeded to teach them and at last attained some degree of success. Sergeant —Now, yer blessed idiot, hold yer hands In front of yer and twist them round one over the other. Stop! Now, which is your left hand and which is your right? Recruit (looking at his hands ter a moment) —I’m blowed If I know. I’ve gone and mixed 'em! —London An- swers. A dinner gathering had all been ask- ing conundrums. "Who killed his brother Caln?" asked Burne-Jones. Morris fell Into the trap at once "Abel!” he shouted. Later in the day he came In laugh- ing. "I trapped the parson, by Jove!” he exclaimed. "I asked him, 'Who killed his brother Abelt "•Caln,' he said at once. Trying to Encourage Him. "‘Ha!’ I said. ’I knew you'd say that. Every one does ’ I came away and left hfm puzzled enough, and I doubt If he's found out yet what the joke was.” "O, Guy, you mustn’t allow yourself to be scared by papa's piercing eye." "I'm not so much afraid of that. El* Beds, as I am of his cutting ’nos!*” The Australian State of Victoria spends nearly 1600,000 a year in Its warfare against the destructive rabbit Burdens Lifted From Bad Backs Weary is the back that bears the burden of kidney ills. There’s no rest nor peace for the man or woman who has a bad back. The distress begins in early morning. You feel lame and not refreshed. It’s hard to get out of bed. It hurts to stoop to tie your shoes. All day the ache keeps up. Any sudden movement sends a sharp twinge through the back. It is torture to stoop or straighten. At night the sufferer retires to toss and twist and groan. Backache is kidney ache—a throbbing, dull aching in the kidneys. To cure backache you must first cure the kidneys. Plasters or liniments won’t do. You must get at the cause, inside. Doan’s Kidney Pills Cure Sick Kidneys Twice-Told Testimony A Wonderful Cure Fully Verified By the Test of Time. MRS. J. M. BARNHART. 952 N. Jackson St.. Frankfort, Ind., says: “Several years ago I was run- nine into Bright’s disease. Mybody bloated a great deal and Ibad such terrible pains in the smalt of my back that I could scarcely stand. I rested poorly and the kidney secretions contained a sediment, also being distressing in passage. 1 tried various prepa- rations but steadily grew worse and when Doan’s Kidney Pills were brought to my attention, I pro- cured a supply. The contents of the first box did me so much good that Icontinued taking the remedy until I was cured. Igave a public statement on July 19. 1906, recommending Doan’s Kidney Pills and now Ican add that Ihave had no need of a kid- ney remedy in over a year.” Slightly Ariiualntrd. Fall of Drains. >¦ IfthefalnlsTfeiS It’sYour Kianor An Uneipmed Promotion. Benny’s intellectual achievements were far from notable, but in the eyes of his small sister he was none the less a wonderful personage. She keenly resented allusions to his lengthy stay in the last desk row at school, although Benny himself took quite a cheerful and philosophic view of the matter. One afternoon the little girl ap- peared, flushed and panting, in the li- brary doorway. "Daddy," she exclaimed, "you prom- ised Benny a dollar when he got moved off the bottom bench, and now he’s up in the next row with me and—“ Benny himself entered just then, in his usual unconcerned way. "Why, what's this I hear, my son?” his father welcomed him. T'm very glad you’ve worked your way up—" The boy started uncomprehendlngly. ‘‘Elsie says you’re in the second row now,” his father continued, in explana- tion. "Course!" returned the youngster, imperturbably. “We're all in the sec- ond row--the bottom bench's being painted.” As an instance of the "marrying in haste” principle that obtains in some American cities an English lady who visited Chicago relates how her maid, who accompanied her, quickly became imbued with the desire to Become Mrs Somebody. One morning she appeared before her mistress and, with glowing eyes, announced that she had named the day and would become a wife at the end of the week. “Are you going back home, then?" the lady asked. "Oh, no, ma'am; it’s an American gentleman,” replied the maid. “But,” remonstrated her mistress, “we’ve only been here a fortnight" "That's no matter. He wants the wedding to be on Saturday.” "Well, can't you get him to postpone the marriage just a little till I can get another maid?" "Well, ma'am. I’d like to oblige you; but, you see, I don’t feel well enough acquainted to ask him to do that.”-* London Answers. Richard Croker, a few days before his departure for Florida, was a guest Of honor at a dinner at the St. Regis Mr. Croker, praising Judge Gaynor’S oratory, said: "His oratory is so concise. Ho packs so much meaning Into so few worda He is like the old clerk whose master said to him: “ 'John, that's a very shabby office coat you’re wearing.’ "‘Yes, str,’ said the old clerk, mean- ingly. ‘I got this coat with the last raise you gave tpe.’ ” GENERAL STRIKE TIES UP ALLPHILADELPHIA General Walkout in Sympathy with Street Car Men Take* Effect at Midnight. MILITIA IS HELD LN READINESS Labor Leaders Assert 100,000 Union Workers Will Obey Order—lm- partial Estimate 40,000. A general strike of the unions in sympathy with tile striking street car men went into effect in Philadelphia at midnight the other night. Simul- taneously it became known, despite the denial of Gen. Clay, head of the police force, that every national guard regiment in the State of Pennsylvania has received orders to be ready to entrain for Philadelphia at an hour’s notice. The labor leaders are shouting ex- ultantly that 100,000 men have lined up with the striking motormen and conductors. The police canvassers make the figure less than 21,000 An impartial estimate is 40,000, a little more or a little less. While the labor leaders are receiv- ing moral support from their fellow workmen in all parts of the country, many asociations of employers have sent letters and telegrams to the offi- cials of the Rapid Transit Company and the city officials commending the stand taken and urging them to re- main firm In their determination not to submit to the strikers' demand for union fecognftion. The struggle of the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Com- pany against the car men's union has broadened into a fight between em- ployers who Insist on their right to run open shops and labor unionism. From now on the issue is the life or death jf labor unionism in Philadel- phia. All policemen, firemen and specials who lave been on duty since the strike began received orders to remain at their posts. The emergency automo- biles in the city hall courtyard were Increased in number and measures tak- en to send a force of men to any sec- tion of the city at a moment’s notice. Many of these machines are driven by their owners, wealthy men, who have volunteerd for police duty and have been sworn in. The outlook is ominous, even to the most chereful observers. So much bit- terness has developed in the last few days that the people of Philadelphia are preparing for any kind of trouble. ON ICE FLOES FOR HOURS. Mother Saves OfT.prliia and Herself After Accident In Miami River. Huddled, drenched and shivering, on cakes of ice, Mrs. William Evans and her two little children floated for two hours in the Miami river near Spring- field, 0., the other night before they could be rescued. The womau attempt- ed to ford the swollen river in a buggy. A cake of ice struck the horse, which reared and overturned the vehicle. Mrs. Evans, keeping herself afloat by holding to an ice cake, assist- ed her children aboard the ice and then mounted another herself. All were near collapse when rescued. Oklahoma I. for Income Tax. Both houses of the Oklahoma Legis- lature without a dissenting vote, adopt- ed resolutions ratifying the income tax amendment to the Constitution of the United States, in his message Governor Haskell seriously questioned the advisability of the amendment, but the Legislature did not seem to share his fears. Flyer Hurl* Cara from Track. The Pennsylvania special "slde- swiped” a freight train six miles west of Wooster, 0.. while traveling at the rate of fifty miles an hour. No one was injured. Several freight cars were hurled across the track, but the pas- senger train did not leave the rails. TRADE AND INDUSTRY. The common council of Duluth adopted the proposed franchise of the Canadian Northern road for entrance to the city. The road is required to pay street assessments the same as any other property owner. Exploitation of the benefits of good roads to both State and farmer, meth- ods of road building, agricultural schools as a means of increasing the State's wealth, and similar questions will occupy much of the time of the conservation and agricultural develop- ment congress which will be held in St. Paul. The manager of the Millbrook laind and Cattle Co., ot Wyoming, has 'aid a wager of SIO,OOO with a syndicate <.f farmers, near Litchfield. Alberta, Can., that he can raise a heavier yield of oats upon the Laramie plains than can be raised anywhere else in the world. This farm took the gold medal at the St. Louis world’s fair for oats In com- petition with the whole world. Armour & Co of Chicago dosed n Minneapolis a deal which means the establishment at Hill City, Minn., of large factories for the manufacture of lard pails and other packages for their own use. This part of their business has been carried on at Ithaca and M e ¦- bie. Mich., but the supply of hardwood having been about exhausted in Michi- gan they have been looking about for several months for a new location where the quantity of hardwood need- ed for their business was satisfactory SLIDE SWEEPS TRAINS OVER EDGE OF CANYON Twenty-three Dead, Twenty-fivs Missing, Under Avalanche in State of Washington. FALL 200 FEET INTO A GULCH Coaches in Twisted Debris at Moun- tain’s Base—Transcontinental Lines Suffer. Conditions almost unprecedented In that section have virtually cut off the entire northwest, and have tied up traffic on half a dozen transcontinental railroads. Thaws in the mountalss have caused avalanches and snow slides that have swept away mountain towns and sections of railroad tracks from Nevada to British Columbia. Floods also have caused widespread damage. In the Cascade mountains In Wash- ington two Great Northern trains were buried by an avalanche. Twenty bodies were recovered and scores are injured or missing. The exact num- ber of deaths caused by avalanches in the Rockies, In Idaho, and in western Montana probably will not be known until the summer sun melts the great masses of snow and ice in the canon into which several mining towns were swept. Further details of the disaster in which an avalanche swept two Great Northern passenger trains and a part of the town of Wellington. Wash., down the mountainside at the west portal of the Cascade tunnel shows it to be more serious than first reported. Twenty-three lives are known to hav» been lost when the mass of snow, stones and uprooted trees hurled the cars containing seventy sleeping per- sons over the narrow ledge to the bot- tom of the canyon 200 feet below, and twenty-five more were reported miss- ing. Besides these a score were in- jured. The avalanche rolled down the moun- tain at 4:30 a. m. The two trains, three locomotives, four powerful elec- tric motors, the depot and water tank were swept off the ledge and deposited in a twisted mass of wreckage at the foot of the mountain. The noise from the snowslide, which was a mile long, could be heard throughout the valley. The wrecked trains lie piled on top of each other 200 feet below the sld- l.ig on which they stood when the avalanche swept over them. The care were crushed into kindling wood and no one in the train escaped injury. The slide filled the shelf on which the- tracks at Wellington are laid and roll- ed over the edge into the valley. Messages telling of the disaster were sent to Everett and a relief train, bearing physicians, nurses and work- ers. was made up and dispatched. Ow- ing to previous slides which blocked the road and swept away parts of the track, the rescue train could get bo further than Scenic, whence the res- cuers had to make their way on foot over the snow. In the later wreck of Oriental lim- ited train No. 2, east bound, on the Great Northern, one person was killed and twelve were injured. The entire train escaped plunging down a fifty- foot embankment near Milan by a nar- row margin. It carried 175 passen- gers. As the train was rounding a curve the engineer, Alonzo Carle, of Spokane, saw a great mass of bowlders blocking the way. Carle throw on the emergency brakes twenty-five feet be- fore the train ran into the rocks. When the train struck the mass gas tanks in the cars exploded. Fire started im- mediately in five of the forward cars and they began to topple over the em- bankment. Conductor B. S. Robertson ran forward and uncoupled the last three cars, saving them. The exact number of dead in all the disasters will not be known for weeks, not until the snow, which is over forty feet deep in the canyon, has melted. Workmen digging in the snow and wreckage report finding dismembered bodies, severed arms and hands. Four transcontinental lines Into Washington and Oregon are block- aded. Only one railroad is operating into Salt Lake City. West of Utah the Southern Pacific and Western Pa- cific lines have been cut by swollen mountain streams. TRAMP SAVES CHILD’S LIFE. Kaacher Traces Man Who Pulled Girl from la Front ot Train. Frank Strome a few days ago was a tramp beating his way westward on a freight train with El Paso as his des- tination. To-day he owns a half in- terest In the Valvedere cattle range, said to be valued at nearly $1,000,000. with its 30,000 head of cattle and 100 square miles of land In Jeff Davis and Pecos counties In Texas. The range Is owned by Samuel W. Jennings, reputed to be worth several millions. A few days ago the 7-year-old daughter of Jennings was crossing the railroad track. A train was bearing down on her and she seemed doomed, when Strome grabbed her and pulled her from the track. Strome went on hls way. but personj who witnessed ths rescue reported the matter, and three days ago he was located by Jennings and taken to the ranch. A day or two later a deed was filed transferring a half interest in the property to ths girl's rescuer.
