Six Months of Misery
HOW TO TELL WHEN THE KID.
NEYS ARE DISORDEREDDoan's Kidney Pills Brought About a
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.”

R. L. Stevenson, writing in 1893 to
Georg* Meredith, in an epistle quoted
In his "Letters,” says, with heart
"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

I would have preferred a place of

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
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-
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
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

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.

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

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.

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.”

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
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.”

Benny’s intellectual achievements

of his small sister he was none the

of the matter.

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
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

The outlook is ominous, even to the
most chereful observers. So much bit-

days that the people of Philadelphia
are preparing for any kind of trouble.

Twenty-three lives are known to hav»
been lost when the mass of snow,

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-

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.
