This will be the first residence of

many more such structures. Con

demonstration at this place in order
to start the builders to using it.
The great advance in the price of
lumber will have a tendency, as it
has already to a great extent in
many places, to encourage the use cf

"What will appear very interesting
to many people here is the article
taken from a New York daily paper
giving a simple prescription which
is said to be a positive remedy for
backache or kidney or bladder
derangement, if taken before the
stage of Bright's disease:
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon, one
ounce; ComDOund Syrup Sarsapa
rila, three ounces. Shake well in a
bottle and take in teaspoonful doses
after each meal and again at bed
A well-known druggist here at
home, when asked regarding this pre
scription, stated that the ingredients
are all harmless, and can be obtain
ed at a small cost from any good
prescription pharmacy, or the mix
ture would be put up if asked to do
so. He further stated that while
this prescription is often prescribed
in rheumatic affliction with splendid
results, he could see no reason why
it would not be a splendid remedy
for kidney and urinary troubles and
backache as it has a peculiar action
upon the kidney structure, cleansing
these most important organs and
helping them to sift and filter from
the blood the foul acids and waste
matter which cause sickness and
suffering. Those of our readers
who suffer can mane no mistake in
giving it a trial.
