There can be no just reason why
any reader of this will continue to

ills when relief is so near at hand

that they can be cured. Read what
a Rock Island citizen says:
Mrs. Charles Weiss, 821 Fourth
avenue, Rock Island, 111., says: "I
was troubled by kidney complaint for
some time and there were severe
pains across the small of my back
that made it very difficult for me to
bend over or do any lifting. I was
often dizzy and had headaches, in
fact every sympton of kidney com
plaint was present. A member of
my family had been cured of this
trouble by Doan's Kidney Pills and
I was thus led to get a box at the
Harper House pharmacy. After tak

from that time on I improved stead

the company's plant on Twentieth
street. For some time there has been
need of a machine that would take up
part of the burden carried by horses
and other beasts of burden on quarter
and half-section farms throughout ths
country, but until the Pump company
machine was perfected nothing was de
vised that was reasonable in cost and
practical. The tractor as it is now de
signed has two capacities, one being
15 horsepower and the larger size 24
horsepower. Its combined weight will
be between 5,000 and 6.000 pounds
and its cost will be reasonable and
within the reach of all farmers who
possess a half-section or more of farm
land. Aside from its value in th
fields the tractor can also be used for
hauling heavy loads of grain and other
farm prdoucts to the markets or when
ever desired. It is expected that when
the new tractor Is placed on the mar

Microbes In Apples a New Scare.
Another terror for mothers has been
discovered by Professor Metchnikoff
of the Pasteur institute in Paris. Hith
erto the humble apple has been con
sidered one of the most healthful of
fruits, and lettuce and other green
salads were supposed to be especially
good for children. Now comes the
professor with his terrible warning
that he has found a microbe making
Its home in apples which is so deadly
that every year it kills 10,000 children
in France. The microbe is said to be
that of gastro-enteritis. and, besides
fastening on apples, it attaches Itself
to the surface of the fresh greens most
frequently used for salad. The pro
fessor offers a ray of hope, however.
He says bi3 microbe has a mortal an
tipathy to soap, and apple caters still
may indulge with safety If they first
