A New Back for an Old One. How
it can be Done in Colville.
The back aches at times with a dull,
indescribable feeling, making you
weary and restless; piercing pains
shoot across the region of the kidneys,
and again the loins are so lame that to
stoop is agony. No use to rub or apply
a plaster to the back if the kidneys are
weak. You cannot reach the cause.
Colville residents would do well to
profit by the following example.
Mrs. G. T. Bellnap, Davenport, Wn.,
sijtb: "I know that Doan's Kidney
Pills are a good kidney medicine for I
have used them with excellent results
and I have often talked with people
who have taken them with success. I
waa troubled a great deal with back
ache and pains in my sides and loins.
My kidneys did not do their work regu
larly and the kidney secretions were
unnatural. When a friend advised me
to try Doan's Kidney Pills, I immedi
ately procured a box. Their use im
proved my condition in every way."

WHILE Mrs. Bowser was down
In the kitchen tbe other
afternoon giving the cook
Instructions as to dinner
■he heaved a sigh and said:
"Maggie, I nave got a presentl
"I hope not," was the reply. "My
brother Jim had one and was laid up
In bed for two months with It He
walks lame yet."
"A presentiment la a feeling."
"Oh, la it?"
"You feel that something la going; to
"Well, if a tramp comes to the door

"It Isn't a tramp, Maggie. I've got
a presentiment that Mr. Bowser la go
ing to bring me borne a present to
"Glory to you! Will it be a sealskin
"I don't know, but I feel that what
ever it is I shan't like It, and bo there
will be a row."
"I hope not. Mr. Bowser went away
this morning singing that beautiful
"ISN'T IT A JIM DAJSL.I?"
hymn, 'I Want to Soar Away.' A man
who Is thinking of soaring won't have
bis mind on a row."
Mr*. B.s Presentiment.
The presentiment didn't vanish, how
ever. On the contrary, it grew strong
er, and when Mr. Bowser finally ap
peared Mrs. Bowser was almost in a
tremble. Then there was a reaction.
Mr. Bowser was smiling, He gave her
a kiss and then walked through Into
the sitting room and deposited a bux
on the table and Jocularly said:
"On ycur life, no one Is to put a
band on this until after dinner."
"Is it something for me?"
"Never you mind."
"I hope it isn't another fire escape."
"It won't escape if you let it alone."
"But Is It a microbe killer?"
"Don't you worry about microbes.
No use your trying to guess what it is,
for you couldn't In fifty years. I will
say this, however—it's something for
"Ob, but I want to see it!"
"But you keep hands off. I'm as
hungry as a wolf and want dinner."
They went down to the dining room,
his arm around her and she quite for
getful of that presentiment. Mr. Bow
ser was fairly jolly during the meal,
and the cat sat with solemn counte
nance and seemed to be saying to her
"Oh, yes—oh. yes—but you just wait
and see bow this thing comes outl
There's lots of time yet for a row."
When the sitting room was reached
again Mrs. Bowser said:
"It was awfully kind and thoughtful
of you, Mr. Bowser. How nice to sur
prise me with a new wrap! Just l-t
me see one little corner of It"
"Not a hair's breadth—not yet!" he
replied as be seised her and went
waltzing around the room and uttering
chuckles. "It Isn't quite a wrap, but
nevertheless I hope it will prove a
glad surprise. We will now investi
gate the mystery of the mysterious
"It may be a far coat," laughed Mrs.
"Or the latest style of muff."
"Or a Paris gown."
"Now I know what it Is for sore.
If s a nice bath robe. I told you a long
time ago I needed one, and you haven't
forgotten. You couldn't have pleased
"Mebbe not, but I hope to," he re
piled as he removed string and paper.
"Hero we are at last. How do you like
A trimmed bat was taken from the
box and carefully held out on his band.
Mrs. Bowser gave one look, and the
room seemed to whirl around with
"Isn't It • Jim dandy V
Boom still whirling.
"I went Into a dozen different places
before I got suited. Doesn't she knock
the socks off'u anything you erer aaw
In the hat line?"
Mrs. Bowser couldn't answer.
"You'd bare gone down and spent
ten days and tried on a thousand hats
before you were suited, while it took
me just seventy seconds to buy tola
after I saw it. What's the matter with
you that you ain't dancing around and
clapping your bands?"
"Then what are you turning alt sorta
If colors for? Isn't she a beauty?"
"But what? Here is a hat beautiful
ly Jetted, trimmed up In red lavender
ties and cost me $28. What's wrong
"Why, it isn't my shape," Bhe replied.
"Your shape? What bas your shape
got to do with a bat? Are you too fat
or too lean?"
"I mean the brim Is too wide, and I
can't wear those colors with my com
"Your complexion be banged! What
has your complexion got to do with a
twenty-three dollar bat?"
"And those ties! Even a colored
woman can't wear lavender ties. Yon
"Yes, I see, and durn my buttons I
bad the milliner take off tbe green ties
and put these on and paid her a dollar
extra to make the change!"
"You are awfully good and kind,
dear, but I can't wear that hat 1
should look like a fright in It. You see,
"I see that I am an ass, Mrs. Bow
ser!" he shouted as he waved the hat
on high. "Here I have run my con
founded legs off and paid out twenty
three big dollars, and you talk about
complexion and lavender and colored
"But please don't be angry, Mr. Bow
ser. You see, no man can select a hat
for a woman. There's got to be har
"Harmony, eh?" he growled. "She's
got to prance around for two weeks
and try on everything she sees till she
can match her eye winkers, eyebrows
and bump on her nose and the pimple
on her chin. That's all right. You go
ahead and prance!"
"I'm awfully sorry, but Maggie bas
an aunt who can probably wear"—
"Not by the seven bulls of Bullville!
Am I around buying hats for my cook?
Am I around buying hats for my cook's
aunt? Am I trotting around for Polly
and Annie and Sarah and Susie? Well,
I guess not!"
"Mr. Bowser, if you would listen to
"You'd tell me that it could be sent
to some old woman's borne. Well, it
can't. It's going Into the alley, and
when I get another surprise for you
you can look for an earthquake with
"No more, Mrs. Bowser. It's all set
tled. Tbe hat doesn't become you, and
we'll try it on an old hen. I now go
to the library. If you wish to tele
phone your lawyer do so. Tell him
that 1 am willing to pay $25 a week
alimony, but I shall Insist on the di

And while you are about It you can

"But Maggie bas gone out."
"You can speak to Maggie, and she
can speak to her aunt, and both of

An amateur charity worker visiting
a family in the tenement district was
alarmed to see the mother dash a cup
of cold water in the face of the baby
■he had just finished dressing.
Too polite to express her amazement,
the visitor held her breath, expecting
the air to be rent with screams. When
none came, the child merely whimper
ing, she said. "Dear me, I should think
he'd object more than Mint-."
"Wouldn't ye, now?" said the fond
mother admiringly. "Sure I've been
practicing on him for three weeks. He
won't yell when he's baptized next
Sunday. He'll be used to lt/'-Ladies"
"Religious folks are never boastful,
are they, ma?"
"Certainly not, child. But what put

that they had done anything for it."—
