rogrades in proportion as the interests
of; wine and beer are advanced. The
belief is current that congress will

about repealing the wine and beer

we rather hope it will not.

Kidney disease often advances so
rapidly that many a person is firmly
in its grasp before aware of its pro

given the slightest symptom of kidney
disorder. If there h; a dull pain in the

and attended by pain, procure a good
kidney remedy at once.
