For years I was in that shape and 1 wore plasters and used all kinds of medicine to no avail until I tried Doan's Kidney Pills. They rid me of the troulile and strengthened my back and kidneys.

A young man, very fond of the girls, hut very cautious as to his dealings with them, recently went to a poetical friend and asked him if he would help get up a birthday sonnet to a certain young lady. "Well," said the poet friend, "what do you want me to say?" "Why, you ought to know about what's the proper thing," said the young man. "Something rather ten der, but at the same time, remember, I don't want to commit myself in any way."

AFTER 14 YEARS OF SUFFERING This Lady Tried Cardui. Let Her Tell You in the Following Statement the Results She Obtained. I __ Wise, Va. —Mrs. J. M. Elam, of this Place, In writing of her female troubles, says : "This trouble went on for 14 years, often I was unable to work and suffered badly at . . . times, when I could not be on my feet at all. Really in bad heulth all the time dur ing those 14 years, and was never without pain, with awful backaching, had no appetite, wus nervous, but at that time my husband's sister . . . recommended that I try Cardui, which I began to take . . . and which has cuused me to be in better health ever , since. Iu a few days I felt that Im provement had begun. My back got stronger and less painful. I got less nervous and my appetite began to im prove. In a few weeks my improve ment was noticeable, and I got Into better health than I had had for 14 years. . . . My walking before had been very painful, and could not stand on my feet to do any good. After using these medicines, however, I could walk without pain and was able to do the work and housekeeping for an ordi nary family. My back and appetite were better and also my nerves." I If you suffer as Mrs. Elam did, take Cardui. It may be just what you need. —Adv. His Bright Idea. "Now, look here, Mr. Mikey ! This won't do! You haven't paid any rent for over a month." "I'm sorry, but I really can t pay just now," replied Mikey. "You're the third one today with that yurn," exclaimed the landlord, "and I can't afford such a loss. You must see what you can do to help me!" "Ail right—I will ! I will write you tonight," answered Mikey. Next morning the landlord eagerly opened the letter, expecting to find a remittance, but this is what he read: "Dear sir: I've thought it over, and the only thing I can suggest, to dimin ish your loss, is to lower the rent."

M oanM *» ^BINXBïiB^^XCOrcKcAOO i SNAKES À NATIONAL ASSET Reptiles Eat Rodents That Destroy Grain—Of the Many Species Few Are Poisonous. Snakes, .say* a writer in the Ameri can Forestry Magazine, arc a national asset worth many millions of dollars. Snakes cat rodents. The more snakes the fewer rodents. The fewer rodents the more grain for human consump tion. Ergo, the more snakes the more food and prosperity for humanity. The snake prejudice is common, ut most universal. Many humane peo ple kill a snake at sight merely be cause it is a snake. Others, especially those who wear skirts, flee terror stricken from a snake's presence for the same arbitrary reason. To study snakes in a friendly way. to try to understand them as a part of nature's scheme, is a new idea. In the Eust there are several snake clubs that devote themselves to the study of snakes and to a propaganda of kindliness toward serpents. The arguments are convincing; quite us unanswerable as the arguments against the wanton killing of birds. Snakes, like birds, are friends of the farmer, and, therefore, benefactors of ail of us. There are 111 species of American snakes, and of these only 17 are ven omous. No snake, venomous or other wise, ever wantonly attacks a human being. The pretty little garter snake and ttie big black snake, the common est varieties, are wholly inoffensive. It will, of course, be impossible to kill the anti-snake sentiment in a day. The hostility of man Io I tic icptiles seems to date from prehistoric times, and is one of the most firmly estab lished of human traditions. The won der is that any snakes have survived the ruthless warfare. If it is now made sufficiently clear by science that the snake is one of man's invaluable benefactors, snakedom's future may be much brighter than its past. England's "Death Clock" Stops. The famous astronomical clock at Hampton Court palace, which was made by a German in 1540, for Henry VIII, has stopped, and is in the work men's hands, writes a correspondent. It is many years since last the clock stopped. It tolls ihe time, the month, the day of the month, the position of the sun, the number of days since the beginning of the year, the phases and age of the moon, the hour it crosses the meridian, and the time of high wa ter at London bridge. A curious le gend connected with it has given it the name of "the clock of death." It is stated that when Anne ot Den mark, the queen of James I. died at Hampton Court, the clock, which was striking the hour at the moment, im médiat Ay s toppml. and it is all « 1 1 to have d< DUO s o for many years wli un» wer anyone lone : resident in the p: lied within its precincts.

Scheme to Capture German, And this was received by the com mander of the Department of the East, a New- York correspondent of the Pittsburgh Dispatch writes: "I am euthusiastic over a scheme that has entered my fertile brain to easily cap ture thousands of German soldiers without firing a round of ammuni tion. If the war department does not see fit to use this wonderful sugges tion. then the responsibility for tho continuance of the war must rest on the shoulders of those who have re jected it. The scheme is a simple one and is easily put into execution. Un der cover of darkness have the sol diers strew the ground between op posing trenches with fly paper. When the Germans come over the top to at tack they will, of course, get stuck and will be easily captured. Can any thing more practical or simple ba Imagined?" Zoo Monkeys' Diet. The monkeys in American zoologi cal parks are still having bananas for breakfast, in spite of the war and the high cost of living, but the animals of the London zoo are not so fortunate. The shortage of food in Britain has resulted in many of the less rare ani mals being killed off or not replaced in case of death. The afore-mentioned bananas have long been dropped from the zoo menu, and potatoes can be re membered only by the older Inhabit ants of before the war days. Horse flesh is the only form of ment not too high nor scarce for the animals. Hay. wheat and oats are needed urg ently for other purposes ; so that grass from the parks, corn, rice and other less valuable grains are substituted. Died on "Field of Honor." Alexander Hamilton, statesman ot the Revolutionary period, and his son Philip were both killed In duels, the former by Aaron Burr and the latter by one George L. Eacker. The son was killed first. He and Eacker were both young lawyers of New York city. They got into a quarrel at a theater one night and Hamilton challenged Eacker on the spot. In the duel which followed. November 23, 1801, Hamilton was mortally wounded and died the next day. July 11, 1804, the father and Aaron Burr fought on the same spot, at Weehawken, N. J., and HainU ton was killed at the first fire. A Regular Bird. Ma —Even If they continue to teach military tactics for the next two years I don't believe our Willie will be any good at It.

One morning Eiuillo Zapata issued two proclamations. One was a pro hibition »-diet closing the saloons; the other a command for the bankers of tho city to assemble for a conference. The bankers attended the meeting. They went in fear, dreading confisca tion of thetr deposits. Only a few days before the armies of General Car ranza had collected a "forced loan" of ten million pesos from the bunks. What mercy could be expected of the bandit leader? Zapata's speech was short and t<> the point. "Caballeros," he said, "mv men are hungry. I want 50,000 pesos to feed them for u few days. You will pay this. I promise you protection. You may carry on your business with out molestation as long as you do not aid the enemy. You may go when you sign the order for the money." Thank ful to escape with such a modest de mand, the bankers did as they were ordered. Zapata kept his part of the bargain, and for months the city was better policed than it has ever been since I'orfirio Diaz was driven from Mexico. Itut this is the strange part of the story strange to one who knows the system of confiscation which has bled the business men of the country. Ten days later Zapata paid back the 50,000 pesos. : BOSCHEE'S GERMAN SYRUP will quiet your cough, soothe the in flammation of a sore throat and lungs, stop irritation in the bronchial tubes, inspiring a good night's rest, free from coughing and with easy expectoration in the morning.
