Pleasant Plains Causes
Some Excitemcnt.
An exciting runaway, while it last
ed, occurred In Amboy avenue, Pleas
ant Plains shortly after 1. o'clock
yesterday afternoon, when a horse
attached to a delivery wagon of L.
Levy and Sons, wholesale confec
tioners, became frightened and made
a dash down the avenue. The driver
whose name could not be learned,
had just taken the bridle off of the
horse and placed a nose bag on it
to feed. The horse made a dash
down toward the railroad station, up
on the sidewalk, barely missing one
of the front show windows of Dr. A.
D. Decker's drug store. The animal
next passed through the • railroad
gates on the side toward the station
and up on the sidewalk in front of
the Pioneer hotel, where the wagon
turned over on its side after strik
ing a telephone pole. Boxes of candy
were thrown about in confusion and
the wagon almost wrecked. The
horse wns caught au(\ turned over to
(he driver. An'.ther wagon was se
cured from William Penton and the
driver continued on his route.

It always givo me pleasure to rec
ommend anything that is right and
so I feel it my duty to herald the
praises of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root.
For years I was troubled with kid
ney disease and it was so Intense that
I was bedridden for days at a time.
I gave up all hope and doctors for
miles around gave me no help. Inci
dentally I tried several patent reme
dies and at last tried Swamp-Root.
From the first it gave me relief and
it was no time before I was able to
be up and around and now I am per
fectly well and able to work as I
used to before my terrible sickness.
So now let me thank you for your
wonderful discovery and take this op
portunity to recommend it to all who
suffer from kidney troubles.
Yours very truly,
Hope, Ark.
