HOW TO FIND OUT,
Fill a bottle or common glass with
urine and let it stand twenty-four
hours; a sediment or settling indicates
a diseased condition of the kidneys.
When urine stains linen it is positive
evidence of kidney trouble. Too fre
quent desire to urinate or pain In the
back, Is also convincing proof that the
kidneys and bladder are out of order.
WHAT TO DO.
There Is comfort In the knowledge
so often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp Root, the great kluney remedy
fulfills every wish In relieving pain
in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder
and every part of the urinary passages.
It corrects inability to hold mine and
scalding pain In passing it, or had
effect following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to get up
many times during the night to uri
nate. The mild and the extraordinary
effect of Swamp Hoot is soon realized.
It stands the highest for its wonder
ful cures of the most distressing eases.
If you need a medicine you should hove
the best. Sold by druggists price fifty
cents and one dollar. For a sample
bottle and pamphlet, both sent frjee
by mall, mention Tribune nnd send
your full postolllce address to Dr. Kil
mer & Co., Ringhamton, N. Y. The

Tho installation of Rev. D. T. Smythe
us put tor of the Langcllu'e Presbyterian
church at Avoea on hist Friday even
ing was attended by a large audience.
The services were beautiful and Im
pressive and were the means of awak
ening renewed Interest on the part ol
the congregation. After singing .i
hymn and prayer by Rev. E. T. IJrydle,
a former pastor of the church', Rev.
Ross McClements. Ph. D., of West
Pittston, In an eloquent and masterly
inunner preuelied the installation ser
mon, taking for his text "Ye .ire not
your own. tneiefore glorify God In your
body 'ind in yuur spirit which ure
God's." After another selection by the
choir, Rev. N. G. Parke, of West Pltts
ton, after propounding the constitution
al question dcllveied the charge to the
pastor. Rev, Mr. Pr.ike, although re
tired from the ministry and somewhat
advanced In years, still possesses an ex
cellent style e.f delivery and in a
simple and unsophisticated manner,
characteristic of the scholar, addressed
i the new pastor, and likened ills duties
to that of the gentle shepherd who
tended to the scattered sheet) and with
what kindness and perseveiance he
brings them into the fold. Rev. F. W.
Gibbon, of Dliiunore, then delivered thr
charge to the congregation. During the
course of ills remarks he reminded them
of their duties and responsibilities to
their pastor and to the chinch. He
paid a glowing tribute to the Langellffe
Presbytery and its position among re
ligious circles. After singing by the
congregation, the newly Installed pastor
pronounced benediction. The beautiful
edifice was prettily decorated with cut
llowers nrd potted plants and among
these sat the members of the Lacka
wanna Piesbytery. Th' scene on. the
whole betokened no lack of Interest and
good cheer on the part of the congrega
tion toward the Rev. Mr. Smythe who
comes among them welt recommended
from the Rrttnswick Presbytery with
the hope that success may crown his
efforts during his pastoiate at Avoea.
