If the reader wants stronger proof
than the following statement and ex
perience of a resident of Princeton,
what can it be?
Mrs. Mary Millett, across the river,
Princeton, Minn., says: "For over
fifteen years I suffered from kidney
complaint. There were severe, bear
ing down pains in my hips and loins
and often my knees and ankles would
swell to twice their natural size. My
back was weak and lame and a sudden
move, or the contraction of a cold
aggravated the trouble. My head
ached a great deal and my eyesight
became affected. My kidneys were
also disordered, the secretions being
unnatural and irregular. As a re
sult of not sleeping well, I arose in
the morning totally unfit for my day's
duties. When my attention was drawn
to Doan's Kidney Pills I procured a
box at the Home Drug Store. They
helped me from the first. I continued
and was practically cured."

The Way Germany Handles Her Re
serves In Case of War.
Nobody who has visited Germany
can fail to have been struck by the
large official signboards at the entry
to each town or village. These con
tain full information as to exactly
which official in the community to ap
ply to should the magic word "mobi
lize" be spoken.
Wherever the German reservist may
chance to be when the order to mobi
lize is givenassuming, of course,
that he is not out of the countryhe
has only got to ask the first inhabitant
or walk to the end of the village and
look at the directions on the signboard
to find out his own particular place in
the military scheme. He will see that
he must go to Herr Schmidt, at 40
Schutzen street. Herr Schmidt will
tell him exactly in which town he has
to go in order to rejoin his own unit
and, what is still more important, will
give him the money and the railway
pass to take him there.
Arrived at his destination, he will
find his uniform, arms and accouter
ments piled neatly in a heap, with a
label bearing his name and regimental
number on the top of the heap. He
has only to put it on and take his
place among the comrades with whom
he did his military service some years
This destination was arranged upon
many years back, and the exact time
schedule for marching and railway
journeys was compiled long since.
An Interesting People Who Are a Puz

real origin of the people and find a key
to their language, they have failed to
All other known tongues spoken by
the sons of men have been shown to
possess a common origin, traceable to
the Arabic and Semitic. But the
Basque language has entirely resisted
the philologist. In some aspects the
vernacular shows traces of a Chinese
admixture. In others it is clear that
North American Indian terms are na
tive to it. It also shows traces of
barbaric languages spoken on the east
coast of Africa.
The people themselves bear physi
ological traits found in those who
speak the said tongues. The native
name of Basqueland is Eskuara. and
their motto is "Iruracbat," or "Three
In One." Nor is their political struc
ture anything like that of any known
political body, though they belong, of
course, to Spain. Each Basque prov
ince is governed by a parliament com
posed of representatives selected
partly by election, partly by lot
among the householders of each coun
try parish or town. Their laws are es
sentially peculiar to themselves and
are conceived on no known code either
of ancient or mediaeval times. They
are a puzzle among nations and num

Paper Which Is Waterproof.
In Japan there is a paper made which
is impervious to water, being made of
bamboo fibers and eucalyptus mixed
with the fibers of the gampi and some
other shrubs. The fibers are first torn
apart, made dry, cleaned and scraped,
boiled in a weak lye and thoroughly
washed in water, after which they are
beaten and then mixed with certain
roots made into a viscous state. A
solution containing resin, caoutchouc
and camphor is also added. A sort of
pulp is thus formed and then made
into sheets, which are run through a
calendering machine heated to various
temperatures. The result is that a
paper is produced which is exceedingly
tough, light and which may be washed.
The Japanese use it for leather imita
tions and India rubber.Pathfinder.

daughter of Louis Arbogast, the
wealthy butcher who was killed in St.

that the girl was insane when she com

for men will show a steady increase.

Martin Quinn, who recently died at
Brown's Valley, was probably the
oldest man in the state. While there
is no absolute certainty as to his age,
yet it has been pretty well established
that he was 106 years old at the time
of his death. He always dated his
age from "the time of the big wind in
Ireland," he being a resident of that
country at that time, and this fact
established his age at 106 years.
The automobile law passed by the

The distribution of the metal tags
began on Saturday. The numbers
are painted on a steel plate with a red
background. Those who have seen
the tags do not regard them as
weather-proof, but Secretary of State
Schmahl says it is the best he can do
in view of the low price qf the license
and the fact that the state furnishes
two tags for each machine. To get a
stamped tag, he says, would simply
mean a deficit for the department.
