One of them climbed upon the table to

of applause, threw sherry and inanza-

to lift with his teeth a companion whom

"The Englishman bad taken off bis

trying to break empty bottles on bis

continued to boast of bis strength. He

When an incident like the following
occurs, right here at home, it is bound
to carry weight with our readers.
When so many strange occurrences
go the rounds of the press; are pub
lished as facts; when the intelligent
readers knows they cannot be true,
there is no reason that people become
skeptical. On one subject skepticism
is rapidly disappearing. This is due to
the actual pernalexperience of onr
citizens and" their "public utterances
regarding them. The doubter must
doubt no more In the' face of such ev
idence as- this. The public statement
of a reputable citizen living right
here at home, one whom you can see
every day. leaves no ground for the
skeptic to stand on.
Mrs. J. Anderson, of 1305 ThirM"
eighth street, says: "I suffered from
marked symptoms of kidney trouble
for two years.- Six months previous
to the spring of 1897 I had a steady
aching pain through my kidneys and
in my hips, especially after a hard
day's work, when my back hurt me
so severely that it made me nervous
and restless nights. There was too
frequent action of the kidney secre
tions, as a rule, very annoying and
distressiug. IVian's Kidney Pills
were recommended to me aud I ob
tained a lxix at Marshall & Fisher's
drug store. In a few days I began to
improve and I continued the treat
ment until I was completely cured.
My husband remarked to me several
times that he had not heard me com
plain of my back, ami insisted that I
continue the use of Doan's Kiduey
Pills, but there was no need of it. I
shall always keep them on hand to
take as required. Iain certain that
no one will be disapiointetl after giv
ing them a fair trial."
