Ibuha Risk Only Uvea Becaone lie Persevered Suffered Since the War With Kidney Disease. . From the News, St. John, Kansas. livery citizen ol &t. John, Kansas, is ac quainted with Abasha bisk, one of the "OJd Veterans" of the late war and resident of this city. A few months ago he was a com plete physical wreck, from kidney trouble and diarrhoea, almost unable to get around at all. Your correspondent, who had learned he had found relief, meeting him on the street recently, asked if he wouldn't give him all the facts, as he was interested, as were also all his friends. Mr. Kisk said he was only too glad to let the people in general and his old comrades in particular, (who he knew were suffering from com plaints similar to his), know what had bene fited him. He then made the following statement: "I had been suffering for years from a complication of diseases, among them kid ney and liver trouble and chronic diarrhoea. Ttie greatest trouble of all, however, was the complete wreck of my nervous system, resulting from my service in the army. 1 was, in fact, in a most terrible and deplor able condition. I tried every remedy I could hear of without the least beneficial results, until I saw a testimonial of an "old veteran" who was in the same regiment with me during the war (with whom I was well acquainted), stating that he had been cured of a similar complaint by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink l'ills. 1 had almost given up hope, but concluded at last to give Fink l'ills a trial, as they might possibly help me. I began using them and soon commenced to feel slightly better; my im provement was very slow, however, but still it was noticeable, and this was encouraging. In the course of about three weeks my con dition was vastly improved. To the present time I have taken 13 boxes of Pink Pills, and can truthfully say I believe I am en tirely cured of my liver and kidney trouble, and nearly so of my diarrhoea. My nervous trouble, too, is so much better that I am sure a cure will be entirely perfected in a snort time. Mv wife also used the Pink Pills with great benefit. Her blood was in an ex tremely bad condition. Since using the pills, however, this condition has entirely disap peared. I consider Dr. Williams' Pink Pilis the most marvelous discovery of the age. I cannot say too much in their praise." AliASHA 1US1V.

There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mu cous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal con dition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.

Pistols and Pestles- Th duelling pistol now occupies its proper place, in the museum of the collector of relic3 cf barbarism. The pistol ought to have beside it the pestle that turned out pills like bullets, to be shot like bullets at the target of the liver. But the pestle is still in evidence, and will be, probably, until everybody has tested the virtue of Ayer's sugar coated pills. They treat tho liver as a friend, not a3 an enemy. Instead of driving it, they coax it. They are compounded on the theory that the liver does its work thoroughly and faithfully under obstructing conditions, and if the obstructions are removed, the liver will do its daily duty.
