STREETS TO BE IMPROVED.
Extensive Work to bo Done in Main
and South Harper.
The city council has determined to
re-macadamize Main stroet between
Col. H. Y. Simpson's place on the west
sido to the point where tho new mac
adam begins on the east side. Council
has also determined to build a viaduct
or crossing on South Harper Stroet,
raising the level of the street to tho
level of the railway tracks neu* Gray's
Shops, thus avoiding the steep hills on
both sides of the branch at that point.
It is estimated that these Improve
ments will absorb most of the funds for
street Improvement for lhe next two or
three years. Thoy should add greatly
to* the value of the real estate along
these streots and hence to the taxable
values of the town.

Read what this gentleman says:
Oapt. D. W. Walsh, keeper of th?
Wood County Infirmary, Parkorsburg,
W. Va., says: "I had to go around try
ing to evade pain constantly, aware
that a false step, jerk or twist would
bring punishment, and I was afraid to
handle anything for fear of a reminder
In the shape of a twlngeof pain. I trade
at Dr. J. N. Murdooh's drug store on
Third street, and have something to
get in the drug line every time I oome
in. It was there I learned about Doan's
Kidney Pills and I took a supply home
with me. My wife used them and my
sister, Mrs. A. Amick, of No. 645
Seventh street, used them. They cured
the three of us. I am here in the city
