Early Closing of Colfax Postoeice.
We are notified by Postmaster Wells
that the money order window of the
Colfax postoffice will be closed at 4 p.
m. sharp, every day. Also the gener

after that hour.
If we understand the situation, all
matter put in the office after 5 o'clock
p. m. will be held over for 24 hours and
mailed out the next day. In view of
the fact that nearly a thousand people
in Colfax are connected with thg mills,
and half of them cannot go to the post
office until after 6 o'clock in the even

tory, and the community should write
in a request to the postoffice depart

til at least 6:30 in the evening.

would have been unable to do anything
had it not been for Doan's Kidney Pills.
For a long time my kidneys were dis
ordered, the kidney secretions being so
frequent in passage as to oblige me to
arise many times during the night, thus
robbing me of my rest. I lost weight,
my flesh became flabby and my health
was poor. Finding benefioial results
from the first box of Doan's Kidney
Pills, I continued to take this remedy
until all symptoms of kidney trouble
disappeared. Doan's Kidney Pills gave
me new life and I have not been as
well in years as I am now."

Paint and Not
Paint was never before so high as last
year and this: about $2.25 a gallon De
oe and a half-dollar less for trash.
What is trash?
It looks like paint and pretends to be
paint, but isn't worth painting. It
costs a painter's day's-work to put-on
a gallon of paint, good or bad; and a
painter's day's-work is $3 or $4.
,Add that to the price of a gallon.
That is the cost of a gallon. Devoe is
$5 or $6 a gallon; and trash a half-dollar
But Devoe is all paint and more too;
you add oil to it; a gallon is 5 or 6 qts.
of perfect paint for the painters pot.
But trash is three-quarters two-thirds
or half,paint;. you pay a half-dollar lest
10 gallons Devoe is enough for the
average job; it takes 16 t4b 20 gallons
of trash. And the wear same way.
