A Twice-Told Tale
One of Interest to Onr Readers.
Good news bears repeating, and when
it is confirmed after a long lapse of
time, even i1 we hesitated to believe it
at first bearing, we ferl secure in ac
cepting its truth now. The following
experience of a Manning man is con
firmed after six years.
W. R. White, .prop. of grocery, S.
Boundary St.. Manning, says: "I suf
fered from kidney trouble for years I
had to get up very often during the
night to pass the kidney socrations and
they were highly colored and contain
ed sediment. like brick-dust. I suffer
ed constantly from backache and sharp
pains across my loins. I could hardly
iurn over in bed and mornings thy back
was so iame.and sore that it was diffi,
cult for me to dress myself. Nothing
helped me until I got Doan's Kidney
Pills. After using one box, my back
didn't ache any more and the lameness
and soreness had all disappeared. I
don't qave to get up now to pass the
kidney secretions and am feeling
twenty- years younger." (Statement
given March 19th. 1908 ) .
OVER SIX YEARS LATER, Mr.
White said: "I always use. Doan's Kid

ney trouble, they keep my back and
kidneys in good condition.,'

All that any astrologer can do is to
point ot fortunate or unfortunate
periods, and that Is all. For instance,
. when the malefic Saturn moves to an
inharmonious aspect In' an individual's
chart it is absolutely certain that it
will have a harmful effect-it may
bring illness to himself, financial tr'ou
bles or have other baneful effects-but
no astrologer can definitely state what
it will be, and any prophet who does
so simply guesses at it. It is the same
