A little backache at first.

Urin ry disorders quickly follow:
Diabetes and finally Bright's disease.
This is the downward course of kid

D. L. Sands, of 315 Thirteenth street,
Olympia, says: "I have had attacks of
backache for years, caused probably by
colds settling in the loins. Some of j
them were so severe that I could not
turn or move in bed and was perfectly ,
helpless and had to be moved about like I
a child. During my last attack I need J
Doan's Kidney Pills. I thought I might |
depend upon them because I had heartl
that they were a reliable cure for kid- |
ney complaint. I was not di?appointed '
for the results obtained from their use
were entirely satisfactory in every way.

Ferdinand de Lesseps used to tell
a Frenchman came to his aid when
6e was struggling against Falmerston's
opposition to the Suez canal. The man,
who was a total stranger, walked Into
his office one day and drew out of Ids
pocket a wallet stuffed with bank notes.
"Monsieur," said he, "I beg the privi
lege of being allowed to subscriiie to
w rd the railway of the Island of Swe
den." "But. monsieur." said Lesseps,
"It is not a railroad; it's a canal. It's
not an Island, but an isthmus. It Is
not in Sweden, but at Suez." "I dont
care what It is or where It Is." said the
capitalist "so lone as it worries Kng
land. Fut me down, I say."
But I.esseps had little reason to make
fun of this episode if the picture his
own son draws of him be true. Becom
ing incensed at aiime attack made on
him in the British parliament and be
ing Inadequately provided with means
to express his race, his mind suddenly
reverted to his linen collar, which was
of English make. lie tore it from Ills
neck, dashed it upon the floor and |
danced on it, all for hatred of the Is
land it came from.
Routed by Puppet*.
Toward the close of- the reign of
Elizabeth, when the Spaniards were
frequently hovering about the south
west coast of England, a party from
their ships landed In the neighborhood
of where Falmouth stands today, with
the Intention of burning the borough of
Penryn. It chanced, however, that that
same evening some strollers had set
up In Penryn market place a repre
sentation by puppets of, certain Inci
dents in the life of Samson, Including
his victory over the Philistines.
At the point of Samson's onset upon
these with the Jawbone of the ass the
strollers beat drums and sounded trum

Mid-Winter Sale
Starting Monday, Jan. 9
To make room for our new spring* stock, we are
going- to devote the balance of this month to one of
the greatest Price Cutting Sales ever held in this
city. Very few people in Skag way will jump at
ficticious bargains a second time. If you fool them
once, you may rest assured that they will fool you
by letting your second attempt go unnoticed. It
is because we have always delt with the people
honestly that our offerings are well treated. Our
class of goods goes to them as the best they can
get and when they prove to the contrary, "We al
ways make good." When we announce a reduc
tion in prices, people know prices are reduced, for
the former prices are always on the goods, with the
new ones added.
Tor This Week We Offer the Following
In face of the fact that the price of all
woolen goods is advancing every day and
that were we to purchase the same lines
today we should be compelled to .id vance
prices- Here we are offering them to you
at prices that should clean out the stock
in a week.
