Often The Kidneys Are
Weakened by Over-Work,
Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Blood
Weak and unhealthy kidneys are re
sponsible for much sickness andsuffering,
therefore, if kidney
trouble is permitted to
continue, serious re
sults are most likely
to follow. Your other,
organs may need at
tention, but your kid
neys most, because
they do most and
should have attention
first. Therefore, when
your kidneys are weak or out of order,
you can understand how quickly your en
tire body is affected and how every organ
seems to fail to do its duty.
If you are sick or " feel badly," begin
taking the great kidney remedy, Dr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root. A trial will con
vince you of its ?reat merit.
The mild and immediate effect of
Swamp-Root, the great kidney and
bladder remedy, is soon realized. It
stands the highest because its remarkable
health restoring properties have been
proven in thousands of the most distress
ing cases. If you need a medicine you
should have the best.

No Deduction for Bagging.
It is probable that the bill of
Hon. M. P. Wells prohibiting a de

'.That from and after thc approv
al of this act it shall be unlawful
for any person, firm or corporation
engaged in the business of buying
cotton in this state as principal or
agent, to deduct any sum for bag
ging or ties from the weight of any
bale of cotton,* when the same is
properly packed- and wrapped in
not more than nine yards of bag
ging and six ties, of the kind that
is now used in the custom of trade.
"For each and every violation of
this act, the offender shall be guilty
of a misdemeanor and shall be fined
in the sum of not less than $5 nor
more than $25 or imprisoned for
not less than 10 days nor more than
30 days: Provided, This act shall
not apply to what is known in the
trade as round bales, and bales of
