AMAOT called 7 V l'e-ru-na Medicine Co., Columbus, O., will niil ft mail to any wonum on application. 5 XVO b Mrs. Hamilton's picture is printed here, and her statements about Pe-ru-na find echo in the hearts of women the country through. "It gives me much pleasure," writes Mrs. J. A. Bashor of Knoxville, Tenn., ' to recommend to the public such a valuable remedy as Pe-ru-na." ' My health was completely broken down, and had been for almosfa year. I could not rest day or night, but suffered constantly untold misery. Tried rem edy after remedy, but found no relief until Pe-ru-na was recommended to me by a friend. I have taken one and a half bottles and am to-day well and hearty. I shall always praise Pe-ru-na, for I feel it saved my life." Miss Belle Gunsalis, No. 208 Seventeenth Ave,, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, writes to Dr. Hartman : " Your medicine cured me of chronic catarrh affecting the head, nose and throat, which I was afflicted with for five or six years, growing worse all the time, until I began taking your Pe-m-na. Independent of curing my catarrh, Pe-ru-na has wonderfully improved my general health." Kemcmber that cholera morbus, cholera infantum, Bummer complaint, bilious colic, diarrhcea and dysentery are each and all catarrh of the bowels. Catarrh is the only correct name for these affections. Pe-ru-na is an absolute specific for these ailments, which are so common in summer. Dr. Ilartman, in a practice of over forty years, never lost a single case of cholera infantum, dysentery, diarrhcea, or cholera morbus, and his only remedy was Fe-ru-na.

BFLLOWS FALLS CITIZENS APPRECIATE THE LITTLE CONQUEROR. Every class of people has sick kidneys. The busy business man rushing through life on the run, fails to realize the constant strain he daily puts upon the kidneys. The mechanic, forced to assume onratural positions, stoop ing and straining at his work, does not know tha. his backache is simply kidney ache. The e'erk on his feet continually, leaning over a counter or desk ; railroaders, conductors, en gineers, street car men subject to constant ianine. all have backache from the kidneys w omen at ineir uuuseaoia amies, uoys buu girls at play overtax the kidneys and give them more work than they can do. 'Tis a fortunate thing the kidneys warn you when in trouble, that tney err out tor help, uon t neglect the warning; don't neglect a bad back. A weak, a lame or an aching back if neglected, means future trouble, urinary trouble. Doan's Kidnev Pills cure every form of kidney ills, care's bad back and make sick kidneys well.

Through the night I was restless snd could not sleep. I also had urinary weak ness which was very annovinr at times. I saw Doau's Kidney Pills advertised and got a box at Andrew's drag store. One box eared the pain in my bsck and relieved me of the otber.I did not leel the least sign of my form er complaint and I went about my work as usual.

"SAVB THE) BABY!" The first instinrt of the mother -heart is to preserve her little one.

Thst part of the state known as the White Mountain region is, perhaps, as much as any in favor as an abiding place, and to reach it by any of the numerous routes one passes through a succession of seenio surroundings that are ever charming and diversified ; and once in the mountains, one realties then the grandeur and imp-eniveness of the peaks and their many attributaries.

The monntains hereabouts are rough and ragged formations, and with the beautilul lakes, cascades and waterfalls Which abound in the region, there is a series of charming pictures in every direction, of which you will never tire and which delights and pleases the most critical, while the elevation, nearly 2000 feet above the sea level, secures for it a tem perature that is ever exhilarating.

Many years ago, when quite a young man, during a rebellion, Count Ito was hiding from his enemies, who, haying tracked him to his house, sent a band of "sohsts" to assassinate him. On hearing his enemies approaching and trapped like a rat In Its hole, the count drew his sword and prepared to die, but the countess whispered. "Do not die; there is hope still," and removing the "hlbatehi," or firebox, and lifting up the mats and the planks beneath, she Induced her husband to conceal himself In the hollow space which ex ists under the floors of all Japanese houses. The murderers broke Into tbe room Just as the firebox had been replaced and demanded of the countess their victim. In vain they threatened and cruelly 111 treated her, dragging her about the room by her long black hair. But It was of no avalL They could not shake her resolute fidelity. Thanks to her courage Count Ito escaped and has lived to give to his country a new con stitution and become one of the great est statesmen of modern Japan. I often wonder when I see the countess, now a delicate, gray haired, little lady, at the courage and presence of mind that she displayed at that critical moment of her life. Corn hill Magazine. Tbe Idloor of Some Idea. "Once m the Joyous springtime," casually remarked the man with the Ingrowing chin, "I threw a rug on the grass plot beneath my window. Days new Dy as aays wiu, ana 1 picsea n tip again to find that the healthy green of luxuriant growth had given way to the sickly yellow of death and decay. Just so It Is, my boy, when the brain Is cov ered over with the rug of old fashioned Ideas. Prom Infancy I was taught by my preceptors to give useful presents, not silly gewgaws that would last but the moment. Thus was the rug thrown over the green of my gray matter, so that today I haven't got sense enough left to follow the plot of a farce com edy." "What in the name of" began the astonished listener. "Simply this, my boy; I gave my beet girl nothing but useful presents, and of course she's gone and married another fellow. Pleasant to think that my use ful presents have given them a start m housekeeping. Isn't It?" Kansas City Independent Bow Dimu Amused Himself. An Interesting anecdote of the elder Dumas, Illustrating the author's peren nial flow of fine spirits, has been told. A gentleman, calling on the creator of "Monte Crlsto," had been ushered Into a room adjoining the host's studio, the servant telling him to go In, as M. Du mas was alone. At that moment (says the narrator) I heard a loud burst of laughter from the Inner apartment, so I said: "I would sooner wait until monsieur's visitors are gone." "Monsieur has no visitors; he is working," remarked the servant, with a smile. "Monsieur Dumas very often laughs like this while at his work." It was true enough; the novelist was alone, or rather in company with one of his characters, at whose sal-tea he was simply roaring. llBTTSa TO KM.
