Heie it is; This last agitation was
begun liccause it was recognized that
the former crusade against Mr. li-jb-

corpse before congress convenes.
They talk of protecting the purity of

homes anion" the circle of the agita

should like to see them. Mr. Kolerts
is a IJod-fearing man. but like many
others he feels he must live out his
life. The most sacred ties and duties
obligate him to do this, and that is
all there is to it. There are no poly
gamous marriages lx-ing contracted
among our people, and if polygamy is
permitted to die a natural death it
will disappear with the passing away

all other ailments arising from dis

cure dizzness. sleeplessness, nervous

wife has been troubled with severe
backache, caused from disordered
kidneys. Morrow's Kid-ne-oids being
highly recommended I purchased a
package for her. She took them ac
cording to directions and they have
completely cured her of kidney back
ache. Morrow's Kid-ne-oids are not pills,

only man who could grease them.
For some reason the cab was not put
into running immediately after it was
imported, but was laid up in tho stablo

from the Pacific hotel, but there was
