I he kidneys are your blood purifiers, they fil ter out the waste or impurities in the blood. if they are sick or out of order, they fall to do their work. Pains, aches and rheu matism come from ex cess of uric acid in the blood, due to reflected kidney trouble. Kidney trouble causes quick or unsteady heart beats, and makes one feel as though they had heart trouble, because the heart is over-working In pumping thick, kidney poisoned blood through veins and arteries. It used to be considered that only urinary troubles were to be traced to the kidneys, but now modern science proves that nearly II constitutional diseases have their begin ning in kidney trouble.

OIKKITKO-TS Ado'nltlrator How Johnnie Simpkins Cured His Mother of an Old-fashioned Habit. Mrs. Simpkins was a housewife of the old school, staid and particu lar. Her habits were the develop ment of many fenerations, dating; back to the good old days of Puritan custom. It is true that Mrs. Simpkins had long ago abandoned the spinning: wheel and no long-er burned tallow dips, but in many thing? she still clung; to the old fashioned notions of her mother and her mother's mother. She made her own soap for the same reason that she still bought her soda crackers in a brown paper bagt because it was the habit of her ancestors, and what was good enough for them must be good enough for her. The Simpkins household had always been conducted cn this good principle, and it is possible that nothing would ever have changed the precise routine of affairs, but for the beginning of another generation in the person of Jonathan, Jr., better known to the neighbors as plain Johnnie Simpkins. At thirteen, it was evident that Johnnie had been born into the wrong family. There was none of the real Simpkins about John. He was all that was progressive some times he was more. Johnnie's first indication of the strenuous character was to convince his mother that it was more desir able to buy trousers to fit him than to abbreviate those previously worn by Simpkins the elder. After that, Mrs. Simpkins was often influenced unconsciously by Johnnie's pro gressive spirit, although the spirit sometimes moved too fast and was suddenly checked in a manner well known to all boys. The greatest victory in John's life was when he rebelled against eating soda crackers that had ab sorbed too much of the grocery store atmosphere, and gave evi dence of familiar association with the mackerel barrel and kerosene can. Mrs. Simpkins said they tasted exactly like the crackers they had been eating all their lives, to which Johnnie agreed, but he further said they were not in it with the biscuit "Willie Smith brought to school, all sealed up in an airtight box. Here the matter was dropped, because Johnnie discovered the danger signal in time, and side tracked the subject. The next day while Mrs. Simp kins was talking to a neighbor, a close observer would have seen Johnnie cautiously slipping into the back door with a mysterious pur ple package tucked under one arm. This was carefully opened and part of the contents neatly piled on one of the large blue plates which his mother usually used to serve such things. When Mrs. Simpkins came in, she picked up one of the new biscuit as a matter of habit and started to munch it. 44 Why, John," she exclaimed," I don't see anything wrong in that) NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY it tastes as if it had come right from the oven." But she looked a little surprised and examined the next biscuit critically. " My, but that's good I I think 111 make a cup of tea and get some jam. The idea of your saying these crackers taste fishy. Ill just have to take some of these new tangled ideas out of your head." And then she closely examined another biscuit. "U-N-E-E-D-Al WW swan, if there ain't a name right on that cracker. They must have got mixed in with that bag I bought yesterday." And then she glanced toward Johnnie, whose eyes were shining like two evening stars. "No, 'they didn't, another. Uneeda Biscuit don't corns in no paper bag, they come all sealed up in a package like this." And Johnnie disclosed his treasure. Slowly Mrs. Simpkins took the package and looked at it inside and out, spelled out the mystic word wIn-er-seal" on the end, sampled another of the biscuit, and asked Jonathan, "where did you get these?" "Oh, I spent that nickel you gave me for school. Ain't they bully, ma?" ''Well, I always thought a cracker was a cracker, but I must say, these beat anything I ever tasted," and then Mrs. Simpkins made the tea and got out the jam. Another reform had taken place in the Simpkins household. The Best Farm Implement.
