An Apple Party.
The home of Mr. R. H. Js:nuin,s
was thrown open to the yonrsg peop!o
of the town Friday evening. When
one refects on the strife and discord
the "fated apple" has brought to us
all he could hardly believe it was the
source of so much genuine pleaiure %
that furnished Friday evening. Miss
Jeseie, unlike "Discordia", threw an
apple of harmony in the crowd and
with her usual hospitality made t be
evening an exceptional one. The sRp
ple party could not have been im
proved upon nor could the apple pie
wbich was given as a prizo to the
"horse apple ct owd." The young
ladies and gentlemen were in M'art .b

The Eminent Kidney
and Bladder Specialist.
The Discoverer 4 Swamp-Root at Work in
There is a disease prevailing in this
country most dangerous because so decep
tive. Many sudden deaths are caused by
it-heart disease, pneumonia, heart failure
or apoplexy are often the result of kidney
disease. If kidney trouble is allowed to ad
vance the kidney-poisoned blood will attack
the vital organs, or the kidneys themselves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
Then the richness of the blood-the albumen
-leaks out and the sufferer has Bright's
Disease, the worst form of kidney trouble.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root the new dis
:overy is the true specific for kidney, bladder
and urinary troubles. It has cured thousands
of apparently hopeless cases, after all other
efforts have failed. At druggists in fifty-cent
and dollar sizes. A sample bottle sent free
by mail, also a book telling about Swamp
Root and its wonderful cures. Address
Dr. Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y. and
mention this paper.
