ONE OF TWO WAYS.
The bladder was created for one
purpose, namely, a receptacle for the
urine, and as such it is not liable to
any form of disease except by one of
two ways. The first way is from im
perfect action of the kidneys. The
second way is from careless local treat
ment cf other diseases.
Unhealthy urine from unhealthy
kidneys is the chief cause of bladder
troubles. So the womb, like the blad
der, was created for one purpose, and
if not doctored too much is not liable
to weakness or diseases, except in rare
cases. It is situated back of and very
close to the bladder, therefore any
pain, disease or inconvenience mani
fested in the kidneys, back, bladder or
urinary passage is often, by mistake,
attributed to female weakness or womb
trouble of some sort. The error is
easily made and may be as easily
avoided. To find out correctly, set
your urine aside for twenty four hours;
a sediment or settling indicates kidney
or bladder trouble. The mild and ex
traordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp Root, the great kidney, and
bladder remedy, is soon realized. If
you need a medicine you should have
the best. At druggists fifty cents and
one dollar. You may have a sample
bottle and pamphlet, both sent free
by mail. Mention THE COLUMBIAN
and send your address to Dr. Kilmer
& Co., Binghamton, N. Y. The pro
prietors of this paper guarantee the
genuineness of this offer.
The murder of little Percy Lock
yar by 14 year old Sam Henderson
in Philadelphia on Monday is
another example of liovv boys profit
by everlastingly reading dime
novels. Henderson killed his victim
by stabbing him and afterward put
ting his body in the creek, with two
heavy stones upon it. Another
youngster named Willie Addison
would probably have suffered the
same fate, had he not run away.
He claims Henderson had asked
him to come back and he would
show him how the Indians killed
their victims. It is thought the
young murderer is out of his mind,
although he manifests no insanity
in an ordinary conversation.

What becomes of the cents ? Of
119,900,000 old copper cents which
were sent out from the mint only
900,000 have ever been accounted for
and only now and then is a stray one
of the remaining 119,900,000 seen in
circulation. Of the 4,500,000 bronze
two cent pieces sent out only 1,500,-
000 ever found their way back, leav
ing 3,000,000 to be accounted for,
and there are an equal number of
nickel three cent pieces somewhere in
this country, though it is very rarely
one is seen. Of the 800,000 half
cents not one has ever been returned
to the mint. A few of this denomina
tion may be seen in the hands of coin
collectors, but the whereabouts of the
rest is a mystery.
DM you maka your Grain-O this way ?
Here are the latest directions :
Use one teaspoonful of Grain-O to
two cups of cold water. Mix the
Grain-O with half an egg aul add the
water. (Be sure to measure.) After
the water gets to the boiling point let
boil for fifteen to twenty minutes.
Use cream and sugar to suit the taste.
If you have not cream use hot milk.
A lady said : "The first time I
drank Grain O I did not like it, but
after using it for ten days and forming
the habit, nothing would induce me
to go back to coffee." This is the ex
perience of all. If you will follow
directions, measure it every time and
make it the same, and try it for ten
days, you will not go back to coffee.
Goal Found at Elysburg.
On the farm of James Vought, about
one-half mile north of Elysburg, North
umberland county an excellent out
cropping of a vein of anthracite coal
has been discovered and Friday morn
ing a gang of about fifteen men were
put to work on the same to develop it
and find out if it will prove of sufficient
thickness to work. The specimens
taken from the vein are of good
quality. It is the purpose of Mr.
Vought if the vein is found in suffici
ent thickness and quality to open the
workings and erect a small breaker
upon the spot.— Ashland Local.
