They are filters for tit? blood an-1 need
the clo-est kind of watchinp;. As the blood
in its circulation through the body passes
through the ktdnevs. its impurity is left in
the kidneys, which in turn empties the
secretions into the bladdr in the form of
urine. If the kidneys become clo.'oC(li alKi
a perfect filtration prevented thereby, the
nsult must be one, or complication of two
or more, of the follow ins; diseases: Rheu
matism, Diabete-,, Gravel, Congestion of the
Kidneys, Inflimination of the Pladder, or the
fatal JJriffht's Disease. Dr. llohin's Kidney
Tablets, a remedy of unquestioned curintr.
powers, is guaranteed to cure any of the
foregiirg diseases, excepting Bright' s Dis
ease, which is general Iv incurable. How
ever, Dr. Iloltin's Kidney Tablets have
been known to even cure the latter dis
ease in its advanced stae, although we
do not guarantee it.
Even Healthy Kidneys
Need Cleansing Now
The large amount of injurious acids
tained in the common American beverages con
sumed by the average person alone is enough to
clog up the kidneys of an entire regiment of our
able-bodied soldiers. "An ounce of prevention
is worth a pound of cure. " One week's unin
teiruited treatment with Dr. Holtiu's Kidney
Tablets taken every three or six months will pro
mote the filtration of the blood, check the over
secretion of urine, and drive all diseased
germs out ot the svstem. It will prevent
any weakness of the kidneys or bladder turn
ing into disease, and will extend the life of
the average man ten years.

is not known. Anderson went to the edito

well-known newspaper woman, was alpo In
the room. It is understood tliat Anderson
objected to something that had arjieared in

that Itoaflls and Tammen lith attemj-tol

their hasty examinations, declared tho

Attorney Anderson, whose condition shows
that ho had been roughly handled, refuted
to talk when seen at the pollc station. It
is learned that the proprietors of the Post
and Anderson quarreled over the Packer
case. Andcr.-on had been employed r aa
attorney on behalf of Packer, known ad
the Cannibal, who Is serving a term ln pris
on, and for whom the Post ha been en
deavoring to obtain a pardon. It Is eald
that Anderson had been thrown down by
Tammen and Boniils beforo he fired a shot.
John F. Carroll, managing editor of tha
I'ost, made the following statement ln re
gard to the causes leading up to the affair:
"The Packer case was at the bottom of
th diflieulty. Anderson, who was Packer
attorney, tedieved he could open the case
again on the ground that Packer had been
convicted in a State court, whereas hii
crime had been committed on a. Govern
ment rc-ervatlon and that consequently ha
should have been held to trial by tha
United States authorities. The Post agreed
to help him to reoper. tho case, on thesa
grounds If lie would consent to lot I. X.
Stevens, the Pet's attorney, direct tha
case. To this Anderson agree,!.
