Final Payment On
Apto Pire Truck.
The final paymeut on the automo
bile fire truck was mude yesterday
morning by city clerk and treasurer
E. M. Scott, which was purchased by
I city council April 10, 1911, after lt had
I been on approval for 30 days. A cash
j payment of $2,500 and three notes for
$1,000 each, bearing simple interest
at the rate of 6 per cent and maturing
in one, two and three years elosoa the
deal. Hie last of the three notes was
paid yesterday morning. Fire Chlor
Jackson is of the opinion that the
truck has more than paid for itself
during tho four years the city has had
it. During the four years the truck
has been in use it has cost the city but
$270 for repairs. During these four
years the city has received from the
State insurance department approx
mately $2,500, so the city really has
only about $3,500 invested In the
I .truck. It is an American-La France
( type No. 10 machine.

A FAIR WARNINB
One That Should Be Heeded bjr An.
Frequently the first sign of kidney
trouble is a slight ache or pain in the
"loins. Neglect of thu} warning makes
the way easy for more serious
troubles-dropsy, gravel, Br?gh?'? dis
ease. Tis well to pSy attention to the
j first sign. Weak kidneys generally
grow weaker and delay is often dc i
gerous. Residents of this commun .
ty place reliance in Doan's Kidney
Pills. This tested remedy has flem
used in kidney trouble over 50 yeara
-is recommended all over the civilis
ed world. Read thc following Auder
son proof of merit:
Mrs. David Burrows, 131 N. Mel mi
fie street, Anderson, says: "Hard
work weakened my kidneys and
brought on backache. When I was
Ironing, sharp twinges darted
through my loins, driving me nhMost
frantic. I had a too frequent desire
to pass the kidney secretions and they
distressed me. I had bad ditsy spells,
too. Reading about Doan's Kidney
Pills, I got a box at Crayton's Drug
Store. I felt better after I had taken
a few doses and three boxer fixed mo
up in fine shape. I keep Doan's Kid
ney Pills in Ute house now and uso
them occasionally as a kidney tonic'
Price 50c at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy-get
Doan's Kidney Pills-the same that
Mrs. Burrows had. Fowtor-MHburn
