The Popular Demand.
So great lias been tho popular demand
for the celebrated remedy Kidney Wort,
that it is having an immense sale from
Mhhio to California. Some have found it
inconvenient t preparn it from tho dry
compound. For sucr tho proprietors now
prepare it in liquid form. This can be pro
cured at the druggists. It has precisely
tho same effect a the dry, but is very con
centrated so that the dose is much, smaller.
Is the cheapest, best, aud most com ore
hepsive ivutoinatic musical instrument ever
brought forth. It has 22 notes; (f! more
than anyother musical instrument) playi in

played by a child It is absolutely perfect
in iU rendition of music, beating its own
time, while all others require faster or
Doc away with cranks and handles,
being played by direct action of the IhiIIows.
It plays any kind of music. Both Auto

all others. Send for circular.

The Laplander's slolgj has no run

with reindeer skin, aud (a in shape

Tho reiudeer is not only the Lapland

time that it gives milk, ho is freezing
largo quantities ot it. to be nsd when
no more is to bo obtained. Then ho
breaks off a piece, warms it out, and

his bow. Without this animal the Lap
lander would be in a deplorable condi
