this was made yesterday by the Alton

other roads have not announced then

June. The present schedule to Kansas

American Occupation for Cuba.
Whether the occupation of Cuba' by
the United States forces will prove
eventually a good thing or not, it is a
very costly luxury. The actual cost for
using a portion of.our army as insular

sides other expenses which have to be
met out of the Cuban treasury. Wheth

doubt that it Is a very superior medi
cine for such cases, and if a cure is

Rock Island, III., says: .
"I suffered from kidney -complaint,
backache and urinary weakness for :'5
years. The pains in my hips and limb3
were very acute and came when I
least expected them, and on several oc
casions I-had to go home and go to
bed. The secretions from my kidneys
annoyed me very much both day an1
night. It was necessary for me to get
up many times during the night. . The
passage of the kidney secretions was
far too, frequent and I could not con
trol them. The urine contained s
thick sentiment and was almost Whits
in color. I tried . many remedies, but
without success and the ailment, was
getting wopie all . the . time. Doan's
Kidney Pills were recommended to me
by a friend and I procured a box tit
the Harper house pharmacy. After
taking the first box I was at work
again, and after taking three boxes I
was completely cured. The results ob
tained from using Doan's Kidney Pills
are swift and sure." . ,
