Answered With One Reply.
Why is it that in Rock Island and
its suburbs, with a combined popula
tion of 'J2.W0, there is onlv one medi
cinal preparation which gives state
ments from residents to back up its
reputation? hy is it that Doan s
Kidney Pills do this in Rock Island,
as well as in every other city and
town of any importance in the union?
Why is it that there are advertised in
every newspaper a dozen remedies,
and only one can supply local proof,
lceal endorsement of its claims? The
solution of the problem is simple.
Only one remedy has the curing and
taying power. " Other remedies make
futile yet gigantic efforts to get local
proof, but the attempt ends in pro
ducing a statement or two that as far
as Hock Island citizens are concerned
might as well le inthe moon. Here
is RiM-k Island proof that backs up
the merits of Doan's Kidney Pills.
John Taylor, of 743 Fourteenth
street, grocer, says: '-For some time
off and on, I suffered from a dull pain
in the small of my back, which I at
tributed te the sluggishness of my

toms of kidney trouble but I" was
anxious to get rid of it before further
complications set in 'which might be
more difficult to check. Doan's Kid

so I obtained a box from the Harper

one box it was sufficient to cure me.
I have not had the trouble since, so I
can safely say I am cured. Should I

occult reason, to illustrate that form of

But all thought of ridicnlo vanishes
when its romantic origin is considered,
for it is the echo still lingering about
the memory of two dusky lovers, who,
in that long gone time when Michigan
was the home mainly of Indian tribes,
lived and loved on tho banks of the riv
er which now bears their names. "
Kahla, the young warrior, was
straight of limb and eagle eyed, while
to Mahzoo had been given by the Great
Spirit tho many, graces and virtues for
which Indian maidens havo becorao
noted in song and legend. Life to these
two possessed all the charm which true
affection has ever granted to lovers, and
the days, as they camo and went,
brought only abounding joy.
Each summer evening, as the twilight
deepened and the time drew near for
her lover's return from tho chase, the
maiden watched from her bower in tho
swaying branchus of a giant elm over
hanging tho river's edgo for the first
sign of his coming. As tho bow of his
canoe shot round the curve away in tho
distance her clear musical voice called
to him, "Kahla, Kahla!" and from the
young warrior came in loving tones tbo
response, "Mahzoo!" Chicago Tinies-Uerald.
