D cember of the drifting snow
And yule-Jog blizing brighh
A December, w-hen the cold winds blom
Across the fields of white;
W hen winter's ring ia in the grount
And nights are clear and still,
And the boys go belly-buster dawu
The slick and shiny hill.
December of the Christmas t.re
And childhoods brightest dream;
December of the ecstacy
Of hallowet Christmas e'en;
When the last sweet lullaby is sung
Aud children's whispers cease.
And the wee sweet stocking. all ar(
Along the nantel piece
December of the drum and horn
And bundles slyly hid;
December of the one great morn
Of mornings for a kid;
When chime, of sweet and mellov
Are weloming the dawn,
And the house rocks with the merr,
Of kids with )ig hties on.

heart beats, and mnakes one feel as though
they had heart trouble. because the heart is

poiaoned blood through veins and arteries.
It used to be considered that only urinary
troubles were to be traced to the kidneys,
but now modern science proves that nearly
all constitutional diseascs have their bcgin

li you are sick you can make no mistake
by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild
and the extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's
Swamap-Root, the great kidney remedy is
soon realized. It stands the highest for its
wonderful eures of the most distressing cases

Reason for Thel
Wtth a theory that human health is
ependet on the stomach and with a
D medicine which hensays proves, this
theory, L. T. Cooper. a comparatively
.young man, has built up an immense
following during the past year.
Cooper has vjsite4.most of the lead
ing cities of the country, and in each
city has atoused-a storm of discussidn
about his .belefs and.his medicinos.
Wherevet 'he has. gone, people have
called upon him by tens -of thousands,
and his preparation has sold in iut.
The -sale .of this medicine hah 'nO'w
spread over the entire country, and is
growhig enormouBly each day. In view
of this. the following statements from
't*o. of the great number of followers
.which he now has, are of gnrl in.
Mrsi. Agnes Viggenhouser, of 942 St.
.Lolis Avenue Chicago, has the follow
ing to say on the 'ubject of the Cooper
preparations: "For more than 'ten
years I was broken down in health. I
could not sleep and I was very ner
3 vous. Gradually I began to lose my
memory, until I could not remember
things from one day to another. I had
nevere pains and cramps in my body,
and I would at times see dark spots
before my eyes. I was unable to do
any work whatever, as my strength
I was failing. I had no appetite, nor
L could I take any medicine.

Cooper's remedies. I decided-to te
them a trial, and I began to feel b ter,
at once. After taking the medicine for
two weeks I can say that I am a new
woman. I can eat with enjoyment, the
pains in -my body have left me, and I
am stronger than I have been fez
"I cannot say enough for 3W.
Cooper's remedies. They are wondeL%
ful, for. they have done everything
claimed for them in my case."
Another 'statement by Mr. W. R.
Stewart, 109 W. Madison St., Chicawj,
is as follows: "I have had stom#acbs
trouble for years, and anyone who I
afflicted this way knows what an awtf3
distressed feeling it causes. Many *
time I have felt that I would give mOs.
any price to be cured. It was by Wgi
cident that I heard of this uss
Cooper's remedies. I immedlat .
made up my mind to buy a treatmeM
of him.. I used it for about two weef
and it is impossible to tell how mubfa
good it has done me. I feel altogether
different. '1 have more life and energy
than I have had for years. This med.
icine certainly does stimulate aW
strengthen the0 wholo system. Tired
feeling and weak condition of the
stomach has entirely passed away. S
