, THE VICTIM 'OF DRINK.- .'
Needs Orrine Treatment.
Drink first" destroys ambition ;
breaks up ties of friendship; it kills
and buries love and eventually de
stroys the family life. .
Some of the best men in the world
have been victims of drink and if
there is not some 1 member in your
family that is afflicted with this dis
ease, you arc indeed fortunate.
Drink cunningly destroys the will
power, and while the drunkard wants
to ao wnat you tea him, . he, wants a
thousand times more the drink that
he craves. . f -
Drunkenness is no longer consider
ed a crime; eminent scientists and
pnysicians have agreed that it Is a
disease and must 1e treated as such.
The home treatment that has been
used for a number of years, and is
highly successful, is Orrine. -It is
sold under a positive guarantee that
if it does not effect a cure your money
will be ref undeo.
Orrine is in two forms. When de
siring to give secretly, purchase Or
rine No.l, and if the patient will vol
untarily take the treatment, Orrine
No. 2 should be given. The guarantee
is the same in either case. Orrine
costs but $1 per oox. Mailed in plain

Police Report Busy Year. Chief of
; Police twsant m his annual report fori
the year which ended with March 31,
1908, shows that he and his bluecoats
have spent a busy year in attending
to the myriad duties of regulation in
this city. For. the year .a total of 963
arrests were made, 526 of them being
city cases. The causes widely vary
from drunkenness, which leads with
242 arrests to disorderly conduct next
with 172 down to one arrest for such
offenses as allowing fowls to go at
large, shooting a slingshot, etc., etc.
Eleven arrests were made for viola
tion of the saloon ordinance. These
were in the city cases. ' Of the state
cases disorderly conduct led with 170
arrests and larceny and assault and
battery were next with 55 each. Dur
ing the year a moving army of 5,206
tramps sought shelter-and found it at
the police station. However their en
tertainment did not cost much for the
total expense of feeding' prisoners
was only $78.65. Of the 963 cases
419 prisoners paid their fines in court,
134 had their suspended and 129 were
dismissed. Fifteen went to the city
jail and 70 to the county jail and 61
were held to the grand jury. Only 12
fines are unpaid at . date.
Park and Brass Band. Silvis citi
zens are preparing to lead the gay
life this summer, having in mind a
city park and a 'brass band. The vil
lage board has an option from the
Silvis Land company on land between
Tenth and Eleventh streets on the
bluff, and, if the board and the com
pany can come together on a satis
factory arrangement, it. will be made
into a city park. The option will ma
ture in about a month aud the board
will , then determine whether it can
afford this frill. Under the option it
can secure, almost any size tract it
wants. The brass band is already
blossoming into reality,' for. lit has a
real leader, N. A. Peterson, and a con
signment of instruments has been pur
chased and will be received shortly.
Under , Mr. .v Peterson's direction 16
members of' the" 'volunteer fire force
will be made 1 into musicians to play
in the city -park' Saturday evenings
and Sunday afternoons. , ; -

fected my entire system, Intense back
aches and weakness across my loins
so severe at times as to cause me to
stop work. I was unable to stoop or
lift anything without enduring sharp
shooting pains through my back and
sick headaches and pains in my eyes
were daily occurrences. My health
was completely broken down, I con
sulted doctors, and -tried many reme
dies but got no relief. I saw Doan's
Kidney Pills advertised ' and decided
to try 'them. After the first few doses
I felt relief, I contiued their use until
I hadconsumed three boxes and by
that time, the pains and other symp-
tons-had disappeared. I am at present

conscientiously say that I owe it to
