None but the initiated know the
accuracy required in a printing
office. Some reader who detects
bad spelling or a letter upside down
feels that his mission is not fully ac
complished until he has called the
attention of friends to the glaring
defect. He did not notice the thous
ands of letters in place, or the multi
tude of words correctly spelled, but
bis eagle eye is glued on that one
that Is out of place. So it is with
our deeds. Man does a thousand
good deeds and no attention is paid
to them, but if he makes one mistake
it is dashed over the world. A life
time may be spent in building up a
reputation that may be wrecked in a
moment. The world is a harsh
critic, exacting to a fault.

I uurmg me spanisn American
War, many of our soldiers suffered
severely from cramp in the stomach
and bowels, due in most cases to tne
change of climate and the -water
they were obliged to drink.
Mr. Geo. A. Lake, of Dennison,
Texas, gives an interesting account
of how be came to the relief of some
of the men in his regiment: "Just
as I was starting for the war, says
Mr. Lake, "Mr. Davis gave me a
large bottle of Sloan's Liniment. I
used it in our troops at Camp Mobrey
for cramps and dysentery among the
men. It took finely and lots of the
boys of Troop L. 1st Tex. Cav. tM-
S. V., will never forget the name of
Sloan's Liniment. One case in par
ticular was our bugler, Fred Orm
sley ; he was cramped until he could
hardly stand it. I gave him a dose
of Sloan's Liniment and in five min
utes he was up and ready to go on
with the troop."
Every druggist carries Sloan's
Liniment in stock. You can get it in
25c. 50c. or SI. 00 sized bottles. It's
a good thing to have in the house
for rheumatism, toothache, sore
throat, asthma and any pain o'r stiffness.

Profit by a Hickman citizen's ex
perience, Thomas Creed, living in Hick
man, Ky., says : "For two or three
years my kidneys did not act as
thev should. There was a steadv
pain in the small of my back, and

through my loins. My back ached
at nicht. and when I arose in the
mnrninp. I was so lame that I could
hardly walk. I often suffered from
nervous spells, occasionally tea
languid and became easily tired.
Headache also troubled me. and I
was tubiect to dizzy spells. The
secretions from my kidneys con
tained a sediment and I was often
ft-rced to arise during the night on
account ot their too trequent action.
Finally I learned of Doaa's Kidney
Pills, and procured a box at Helm
and Ellison's drue store, used them
tn accordance with the directions.
and one box relieved my trouble. 1
ran recommend Doan's Kidnev Pills
as a very reliable kidney remedy."
