Another Citizen Who Adda Hli Testimony
to IV hat Has lleen Said.
The people of this state do not hes
itate to add their testimony to that of j
other citizens who have used Mor
row's Kid-ne-oids for lame back, and
all ailments arising from disordered
kidneys. Kid-ne-oids will cure dizzi
ness, sleeplessness, nervousness and
all kindred ailments.
Michael Clark, who lives three miles
east of Decatur, III., says that he has
had kidney trouble since 1X87, and
has scnt hundreds of dollars for
medicine and has been treated by dif
ferent doctors. "I lost a great deal
of time frmii work and like a drown
ing man grasping at a straw, when I
heard of Morrow s Kid-ne-oids, I de
cided to try them. Kid-ne-oids have
proven the very remedy that I needed.
1 believe I was nearly gone when I
hrst ii sti I Rid-ne-oids and could not
have lived much longer. I hve now
used three boxes. 1 am a new man in
every way, in fact I feel my oM self
again. I am so interested in Kid-ne-oids
that I shall le glad to write any
one personally about my condition
who will enclose stamp for reply."1
that is the way tieoplu all over the
country who have used Morrow's
Kid-ne-oids recommend tbcin. They
are anxious to tell their friends about
a remedy that has done so much for
them. Kid-ne-oids are not pills but
yellow tablets, which is a scientific
form ol preparing medicine, and are
put up in wooden boxes which con
tain enough for about two weeks'
treatment and sell at lifty cents a box

Garlaad Would Have Swallowed It It
It Had Killed Illm.
The late Augustus II. Garland, who
was attorney general under President
Cleveland, was very fond of practical
jokes and dnring his term of service in
the senate frequently turned the laugh
on his colleagues. Senators Voorhees
and Vest, with whom he was very
friendly, finally determined to turn tho
tables. Mr. Garland had a habit, like
Voorhees, of munching candy, and Vest
and Voorhees made it up between them
to take advantage of his fondness for
sweets to play their trick. They had
some tempting looking chocolate cara
mels prepared, with the interior filled
with brown sonp. Tliea9 they took to
tho senate-chamber and Voorhees placed
them on his desk. The lid being off
when Mr. Oarlnnd sauntered down the
aisle he noticed them at once.
"What have yon there, Dan?" ho inquired.
Voorhees looked np carelessly from
his writing and responded: "Caramels.
Help yourself. "
(iarland needed no second invitation
and, picking up two or three, placed
one in bis mouth. Steadily he chewed
away, his face betraying no sign of the
conflict within him. This alarmed
Voorhees. who went to Vest's desk and
"lie's eating them. Vest I What shall
we doT The stuff will kill him sure!"
Senator Vest replied that it could do
no more than make him sick. Garland
swallowed the stuff, although he was
foaming at the mouth from the soap
ends. He related the incident afterward
with great gusto and said he would
have swallowed it if it bad killed him.
