Dear Sir: Two and two make four?
not always; depends upon what "two
and two" are.
Two gallons of water and two gallons I
of milk don't make four gallons of!
Neither does f mr gallons of paint |
that's halt lime, whiting, clay and kero
sene oil, make lour gallons of real
That's what we mean by saying
"Fewer gallons; wears longer." It
takes fewer gallons of DeVoe Lead and
/ice than of mixed paints to paint a
house, and it wears twice or three
times as long as lead and oil, mixed by
Prowse & Pelton, Herklmer, N. Y.,
Mr. Ohas. Avery, of Herli'.mnr,
bought 51 gallons of Devoe Lead and
Zinc to paint his live houses, bis paint
er having figured that it would require
at least that amount; 36 gallons did the
work and he returned 15 gallons.

No one can have any reason for dis
senting from the particulars and
proofs which follow, for verification of
the same is within easy reach ot every
resident of this vicinity. That Doan's
Kidney's Pills promptly and effect
ually cure kidney complaints is sub
stantiated not only in this particular
case, but by all who have given them
fair trial. Testimony likewise shows
that you do not have to take them in
definitely to bo cured.
Walter McLachlln, a machine hand,
employed at J. Holliday & Sons plan
ing mill, Wheeling, W. Va., address
3032 Jacob street, says: "Had I not
used Doan's Kidney Pills when 1 did I
would not be alive now. I was in a
bad condition, and although I took
quarts of medicine I got no better, but
worse. Friends spoke of my bad ap
pearance and thousands knew about it.
I could hardly get around and felt and
looked like, dead man more than a
living one. Doan's Kidney Pills were
a blessing to me, half a box relieved
j me, three boxes entirely cured me and
I now I feel as though my back was as
strong as that of any horse in Wheel

Doan's Kldey Pills than the services of
all the doctors in the state.

I wunder if he remembers,
That good old man In Heaven,
The class In the old rod school-house
Known as the noisy (even.
I wonder if he remembers,
How restless we used to be,
Or thinks we forgot the lesson
Of Christ, in Gethsemane.
I wish I could toll that story,
As he used to tell it then,
I am sure that with heaven's blessing
I could reaeh tho hearts of men.
That voice so touchlngly and tender
Comes down to me through the years
A pathos which seems to mlnglo,
His own with the Savior's tears.
I often wish I could tell him,
Though we caused him so much pain
By our thoughtless boy'sh frolic,
His lessons were not in vain.
I llko to toll him how Harry,
Tho merriest one of us all,
From the Christians' Held of battle,
Went homo at the Master's ev?ll.
I'd llko to toll him how Stephen,
So brimming with mirth and fun,
Now tells tho heathen in China
The tale of tho Crucified one.
I'd like to tell him how Joseph
And Philip, and Jack and Jay,
Are honored among tho churches
The foremest men of their day.
I'd like, ye?, I'd like to toll him,
What his lesson did for me,
And how I am trying to follow
That Christ of Gethsemane.
Perhaps he knows It already,
For Harry has told him maybe
That we are all treading ono pathway,
Through Christ of Gethsemane.

Will gather at last in Heavon,
Tho fruit of that faithful sowing,
But the sheaves are surely seven.
ROBBED THE GRAVE.
A startling incident, is narrated by
John Oliver of Philadelphia, as fol
lows: "I was In an awful condition. My
skin was almost yellow, eyes sunken,
tooguo coated, pain continually in
back and sides, no appetite, growing
weaker day by day. Three physicians
had given mo up. Then I was advised
to use Electric Bieters; to my great joy,
the first bottle made a decided Im
provement. I continued their use for
three weeks, and am now a woll man.
I know they robbed the grave of an
other victim." No one should fall to
try them. Only 50 cents guaranteed,

"After my first baby was born I did not
seem to regain my strength although the
doctor gave mc a tonic which he consid
ered very superior, but instead of getting
better I grew weaker every day. My hus
band Insisted that I take wine of Cardui
for a week and see what It would do for
me. 1 did take the medicine and was very
grateful to find my strength and health
slowly returning. In two weeks I was out
of bed and In a month I was able to take
up my usual duties. I am very enthusi
astic in its praise."
Wino of Cardui reinforces the organs
of generation for tho ordeal of preg
nancy and childbirth. It prevents mis

of Cardui need fear the coming of her
child. If Mrs. Unrath hau taken
Wine of Cardui before her baby came
aho would not have been weakened as
sho was. Her rapid recovery should
commend this great remedy to every
expectant mother. Wine of Cardui
