Foley's Kidney Remedy Acted Quickly.
M. N. George, Irondale, Ala., was
bothered with kidney trouble for many
years. "I was persuaded to try Foley
Kidney Remedy, and before taking it
three days I could feel its beneficial
effects. The pain left my back, my kid

The Man's Mistake.
Out of loyalty to his own sex the
manager of the woman's suit depart
ment discharged his young woman
stenographer and hired a man. The
first batch of letters dictated to the
man were written to about a hundred
old customers, whom he invited to ex
aniine privately a lot of exclusive gar
ments before they were placed on sale.
The day after the letters were mailed
the women fiocked into the store, but
the fire that burned in their eyes was
the fire of the avenger rather than of
the bargain hunter. One word which
each woman had underlined in her
letter explained their wrath. The gar
ments, so the manager had meant to
say, had been designed for women of
stock figure, such as they possessed,
but the male stenographer had drawn
on the alphabet and had written it
"No woman on earth would have
been guilty of such a mistake."

had her job back.-Philadelphia Led

There is no time in the year when
there is cessation from toil on a farm.
It is different In winter; that is all.
The days are shorter, the work
rougher. Of course much depends
upon the character of the farm. Con

done. But always there are the
