The back aches at times with a dull, Indescribable feeling, making you weary and restless; shooting pain shoots across the region of the kidneys and again the lions are so- lame to stoop is agony. No use to rub or apply a plas ter to the back in this condition. Tou cannot reach the cause. Exchange the bad back for a new and stronger one. Follow the example of this Topeka citizen: Mr. Calvtn Brewer, real estate dealer of 635 Jefferson street, says: "Ordinary Angio-Saxon fails to convey any idea of what I suffered from to t back when ( on the Texas Pacific railroad, engineer between Fort Worth and Texarkana. I have often when I stooped to oil my engine suffered excruciatingly, and when on the engine the least jar sent twinges of pain clear from my loins to the top of my head. The trouble finally forced me to give up my position, and when weakness of the kidneys, particu larly observable at night, was added to former troubles, my condition was not one to be envied. Now, If the first box of Doan's Kidney Pills, procured at Rowley & Snow's drug store, corner of Sixth avenue and Kansas avenue, had not brought positive relief, I never would have followed up the treatment, neither could I- be induced to recom mend the preparations or endorse its claims. Send anyone to me for minute particulars of my experience with and opinions of Doan's Kidney Pills." . For sale by all dealers. Price, GO eents. Foeter-Milburn Co., Buffalo. N.

When you die the event will attract attention mainly on account of interest in the question of who will get your job. When a man's wife and daughters sulk and never look at htm except with reproach on account of something he has done he endures it cheerfully know ing it can only last until they need car fare. The henpecked husband la a myth. The only way a woman can manage her husband is by letting him think be is getting bis own way. It is hard to believe that a fat man can be very desperately in love.

Matters relating to the locomotive construction which ia to take place in Topeka shops as soon as the new plant is completed is also suggested tin con nection with the meeting, and it is possible that upon the results of it will depend somewhat whether or not the company will place another order soon for motive power witn the Baldwins.

Irish Patriots Are Looking- Forward to an Interesting Time. London, July 28.-The closing days of the session of parliament are witnessing heated discussions of the ever-recurring Irish questions. This week was espec ially notable for the fierceness of the accusations and recriminations band ied across the narrow forum of the house of commons. The resentment of the Irish members was stirred to an unusual degree by the discovery of al leged secret documents of the land trust, organized by the landlords for the avowed purpose of resisting threat ening combinations of tenants and sup pressing the boycotting and intimida tion instigated by the United Irish League, or otherwise. The Irish leaders point out that Arthur Hugh Smith-Barry, chairman of the National Union and conservative associations, "who are among the prime movers of the trust, signed the same week, as privy coun cillors, a proclamation from Dublin castle enforcing the coercion act over half of Ireland. All the trustees of toe trust, the Duke of Abercorn, Lord Waterford, Lord Ashton, Lord Clon brook. Lord Barrymore and two others, are privy councillors. The trust has a long list of subscribers and ample funds for fighting the tenants and the league which is behind them. "We Bhali not be surprised. said John Redmond, chairman of the United League, to a representative of Associat ed Press, "if O'Brien, Dillon. Davit t. myself and other leaders are arrested at Mr. Wyrrdham's instance within a fortnight. In fact we are rather ex pecting to be arrested on charge of un lawful assemblage and intimidation. They have already brought injunctions and damage suits against us individ ually." OS HIS TRAIL, Officers With Bloodhounds After Xuxdarer of Chief Wilmoth. PhiliDDi. W. Vs.. July 26.
