THE TRUE TEST.

The hardest test is the test of time,
and Doan's Kidney Pills have stood

can hardly ask for stronger proof
than the following:
Mrs. S. Farringfcon, Princeton,
Minn., says: "About two years ago
my kidneys began to act sluggishly.
My back pained me almost constantly
and my head never ceased to ache. I
did not rest well, had a poor appetite
and was nervous. My mother finally
got a box of Doan's Kidney Pills for
me and after using them a short time,
I was entirely relieved." (Statement
given in September, 1907.)
AFTER THREE YEARS.
Mrs. Farrington was interviewed on
September 22, 1910, and she added to
the above: I can still endorse
Doan's Kidney Pills in the highest

with kidney complaint is to give this
remedy a trial."

WORK FOR PEACE
Taft Appeals to Them to Sop
port His Arbitration Treaties,
THEY SUFFER MORE IN WAR,
President In Magazine Article Over
His Own Signature Says He Will
Not Shirk Fight With Senate if
Necessary to Insure Success.
President Taft over his own signa
ture in the Woman's Home Compan
ion makes an appeal to the women of
the nation to come to the support of
the arbitration treaties. The presi
dent declares that women are vitally
interested in questions of peace and
war and that in war they suffer even
more than men do. He urges, there
fore, that the voice of the women of
this country shall speak for peace.
"On the evil of war and what fol
lows in its train I need not dwell,"
says he. "We could not have a higher
object than the adoption of any proper
and honorable means which would
lessen the chance af armed conflicts.
Men endure great physical hardships
in camp and on the battlefield.
"In our civil war the death roll in
the Union army alone reached the ap
palling aggregate of 3o9,000. But the
suffering and perils of the men in the
field, distressing as t^ey are to con
template, are slight in comparison
with the woes and anguish of the wo
men who are left behind. The hope
that husband, brother, father, son.
may be spared the tragic end which all
soldiers risk when they respond to their
country's call buoys them up in their
privations and heartbreaking loneli
ness, but theirs is the deepest pain, for
the most poignant suffering is mental
rather than physical. No pension com
pensates for the loss of husband, son
or father. The glory of death in bat
tle does not feed the orphaned chil
dren, nor does the pomp and circum
stance of war clothe them. The voice
of the women of America should speak
Ready to Fight It Out.
Reciting the fact that a majority of
the senate's committee on foreign re
lations has concluded that the proposed
arbitration treaties with Great Britain
and France, as presented to the senate
for ratification, infringe in one respect
on its constitutional prerogatives, the
president says that this view is, in his
judgment, erroneous. He contends
that the objection raised by the ma
jority has already been answered by
an able minority and expresses the
hope that reflection on the part of the
senators who are neutral or even hos
tile to the treaties will convince them
of their error.
"But while the majority of the com
mittee remains to be persuaded," says
he, "the issue should be thoroughly
understood by the American people, to
whom both branches of the federal
gomernment are accountable and
whose judgment in some effective and
unequivocal way will record itself."
The president points out that he is
not by any means seeking a fight with
the senate, but he doesn't say he will
shirk one if necessary to the success
of the treaties. He continues
"I am far from desiring a contest
with the senate. I am one of those
who appreciate most highly the plan
of government devised by our forefa
thers in the constitution. I think that
one of the most admirable features of
that framework is the senate with its
various functions, and I should be the
last to seek to deprive it of any of
What New Treaties Mean.
"The executive has powers in re
spect to treaties equal at least to those
of the senate, and if these treaties de
prive the senate of any power it can
not delegate they deprive the execu
tive of the same power. It is my duty
tc be as careful not to give up any
power intrusted to me by the constitu
tion and not to yield to any encroach
ment upon it as the senate ought to be
in respect of its constitutional facul
ties. Charged as 1 am with this duty

THE MAGNETIC NEEDLE.
t Quite Often Very Far From Being
True to the Pole.
"True as the needle to the pole." like
many another popular saying, conveys
a distinctly erroneous impression. In
order to keep itself duly informed as
to the unfaithfulness of the needle to
the pole, or, technically, the "variation
of the compass" from the true north,
our government maintains a division
of terrestrial magnetism.
Not only does the magnetic needle
vary at different places, but the varia
tion changes from year to year and
even at different times in the day. On
magnetic survey charts those places
which at a particular time have the
same amount of variation are connect
ed by what is known as an isogonic, or
equal variation line Through these
points on the map in which there is no
variation of the needle from the true
north a line known as the agonic
Iron deposits and mountain ranges
modify the action of the unknown
causes of the periodical variation and
cause these lines to become even more
crooked than those which mark equal
temperatures, known as isothermal
Isogonic charts may be accurate to
day and full of small errors in a few
years. The famous Mason and Dixon's
line between Pennsylvania and alary
land, which was surveyed in the years
1763 to 1767, was run by the stars
and not by the needle, a great piece of
foresight in that day. If it had been
surveyed by the compass in 1800 it
would have shown a deviation in some
places of two miles, and had the line
been run by uncorrected compass a
hundred years later, in 1900, the varia
tion would have reached nearly nine
teen miles to the south and the rich
coal fields of two Maryland counties
would have been thrown into Pennsyl

needle's shortcomings is believed to

a high tribute to the scientific percep

The Great Violinist Didn't Play
Miser on This Occasion.
The following story places Paganini
in a better light than this musical
miser was accustomed to appear. And
really one is led to wonder which is
the true Paganinithe miser or the
kind artist giving his talent to assist a
poor servant girl. One morning the
maid who waited on him in Paris
came to him. weeping, and told how
her lover had been conscripted and
sent away to the war, and she, of
course, was too poor to buy a substi
tute for him.
Paganini resolved to aid the girl and
took a unique way to do it. He pro
cured a wooden shoe and so fashioned
it that it could be strung up and
played like a fiddle. Then he adver
tised that he would give a concert and
play five pieces on the violin and five
on a wooden shoe. Of course this
strange announcement drew a good
house. The violinist had given the girl
tickets to the concert, and after it was
over he went to her, and, pouring 20,000
francs into her lap. he told her that
she could now purchase a substitute
for her sweetheart and with the re
mainder set up housekeeping. He also
gave her the wooden shoe that had
brought her such good fortune and
told her to sell it. Of course this curi
ous instrument brought her a goodly
sum, which she added to the amount

'HERE are two kinds of Job Printingthat which is neat and

It is a drawback to the business of a merchant or anyone else who uses
