There was a dull aching ucross the small of my back that was worse at Dlgbt and made me feel miserable all the time. The kidney secretions were dark and full of sediment, and lack of control impelled me to rise a number of times during the night. Between this annoyance and the backache it was Impossible for me to get much sleep and my health was being undermined. I tried a number of remedies, but nothing helped me until 1 got Doan's Kidney Pills. The use of this remedy according to directions promptly brought about a change tor the better. After using two boxes the backache all left me. the kidney secretions cleared up and the action of the kid neys became normal.” A FREE TRIAL of this great kid ney medicine which cured Chief Har ris will be mailed to any part of the United States.

In New York City, Freed by a Cow boy's Lariat. After nearly two years imprison ment between brick walls four stories ~.,;b and only a little more than three Inches apart, a cat lias been rescued by means of a lariat. The feline dropped into the crevice when it was only a few weeks old and has been there ever since—fed and cared for by families residing in the buildings. The prison which it occupied so long is botween two buildings in East Fourth street. The crevice Is closed front and back, and even closed partly on the top by tin roofing. Efforts which the kitten made again and again during the early days of its Imprisonment, to climb up these slip pery walls, only to fall back, were watched with sympathy by the neigh bors and they became divided into fac tions—those who thought that the kit ten ought to be killed and relieved of Hs misery, and those who held that while there was life there was hope. The latter fed the eat and gave it water by means of a long string. Dis contented neighbor* many times threw 1 chunks of poisoned liver, but the animal never touched it. Meanwhile the cat grew ami every effort was made to release it. but without suc cess. A few days ago the story became generally known and came to the no tice of an ex cowboy who. with an old lariat, soon dragged the cat from its prison, thus removing a source of much worry to the Society for Preven tion of Cruelty to Animals. BUNCH TOGETHER Coffee Has a Curious Way of Finally Attacking Some Organ. Ails that come from coffee are cumulative, that is, unless the coffee Is taken away new troubles are con tinually appearing and the old ones get worse. "To begin with,” says a Kansan. ”1 ! was a slave to coffee Just as thou sands of others to-day; thought I could not livo without drinking strong coffee every morning for breakfast ami I bad sick headaches that kept ine in hod several days every month. Could hardly keep my food on my stomach hut would vomit as long as I could throw anything up and when I could get hot coffee to stay on my stomach I thought 1 was better. "Well, two years ago this spring I | was that sick with rheumatism I j cou4d not use my right arm to do any- I thing, had heart trouble, was nerv ous. My nerves were all unstrung i and my finger nails and tips were i blue as if 1 had a chill all the time and my face and hands yellow as a pumpkin. My doctor said It was heart dlsaase and rheumatism and my neighbors said I had Bright’s disease and was going to dlo. "Well. I did not know what on earth was the matter and every morn ing would drag myself out of bed and go to breakfast, not to eat anything, but to force down some more coffee. Then In a little while I would be so nervous, my heart would beat like everything. "Finally one morning I told my hus band I believed coffee was the cause of this trouble and that I thought I would try Postum which I had seen advertised. He said ’All right’ so we got Postum and although 1 did not like It at first I got right down to .business and made It according to directions, then it was fine and the whole family got to using it and 1 tell you It has worked wonders for me. Thanks to Postum in place of the poison, coffee. I now enjoy good health, have not been In bed with sick headache for two years although I had It for 30 years before I began Postum and my nerves are now strong and I have no trouble from my heart or from the rheumatism. "I consider Postum a necessary ar ticle of food on my table. My friends who come here and taste my Postum say It is delicious." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.

I used to know a widow who thought she would look into it a little. She visited a medium, and the man greed for $5 to give her some conversation wjth her dead husband. "He put the lights out and fell Into a trance, and suddenly a dim. pale shape appeared In the furthest, black est corner of the room. "’Are you my husband? Are you John?’ the widow whispered, tremu lously. “’I am John,’ a bass voice an swered.. "For a moment, awe-stricken, the widow was silent. Then she said: "‘Do you forgive me for my ill treatment of you in life?’ " *1 forgive all.’ replied the voice. ‘ ‘Are you happier than you were when you were living?’ " ’Much happier.’ “ ’Have you no desire to return to earth?’ “ ‘None whatever.’ ' ‘Where are you. John?’ “ ‘ln Hades,’ said the spirit.” First Briton in India. The fiist Englishman who is known for certain to have gone out to India was. according to a recent correspon dent in an Indian paper, a certain Thomas Stephens, a member of a well to-do Wiltshire family and an Oxonian, who landed somewhere near Goa about the year 1579. and spent forty years in Jesuit missionary work in Goa and the neighborhood. Stephens not only suc t ceeded in mastering Marathi and Kon j kani, which were the languages spoken by the majority of the people on the west coast, but left behind him among other works in Marathi of literary I merit the "Purana,” an epic; and it is | in his capacity as the author of this that Stephens’ name is best known among the West Coast inhabitants. | The poem contains over 11,000 strophes of four lines each. It nar rates in a lofty style the events that led up to the establishment of the Christian religion, and from the crea tion to the ascension of our Lord, who figures as the hero of the epic. A new edition of the "Purana” is to be i published in Mangalore, no printed copy of the work being now available —The Athenaeum. Consider Himself Dead. Mr. L., a good-natured German, was the proprietor of a clothing business in a country town. He had In his em | ploy one John S., whom he bail ad vanced from cash boy to head clerk. | Since his promotion John had several times asked for an increase of salary, ' and each time his request had been I granted. One morning he again ap peared at the old merchant's desk with another request for an increase of $lO a month. I ''Vy, shon.” said ■ Mr. I*. “[ dink I bays you pooty veil alretty; vat for I bays you any more?” j "Well." replied John, confidently, "I am your principal help here. I know ever}' detail of the business, and, in deed. I think that you could not get along without me.” j "Is dot so? Vy, Shon. vot would I . do suppose you vas to die?" j "Well, suppose that you would have j to get along without me then.” The old Teuton took several whiffs from his big pipe and finally said: "Veil, Shon. I guess you petter gon slder yourself dead.” —Youth's Con> panion. The Czar a Book Lover. Here is quite a delightful confession from the Czar of all the Russias, whose heart must now be sorely trou bled by the disasters of the present war: “I love traveling, but only when I can do It in my own way. I never travel otherwise than at night, and spend my day visiting museums and quaint old streets, bazars when I am in the East, antiquarian shops when I am in the North. I am more of an Asiatic than a European In my tastes, and I have not only a vast collection of Indian curios and quite an army of Buddhas large and small, but also a library composed of books treating of Indiana subjects alone, and another of hooks dealing with Egyptian lore. t Were I not —well, what I am—l should he the greatest bookworm in the world.” The Outdoor Christian. God, forgive me for an upatart That I do not plead for grace. Nor bask within purring praises In the radiance of thy face. I am so busy living. Lord. And loving, night ami day. I cannot always find the time To kneel me down and pray. God. forgive me for a bungler. That I cannot tune by chime To the anthem and the chantry Of the dressy Sabbath time. I know the word of sea and sky. The note of dell and nook. But cannot seem to entch the air Of olden altar book. God. forgive me that T love the® As the flowers love the light. With a seething, silent rapture. With a dear but dumb delight. You bred my faith so stanch and strong. My creed so brave an 1 gav. I dare to love and praise thee In Mine own nntrammeled way!

According to the best modern au thorities the so-called amber found in Syria, India and Madagascar is not amber at all, but a resin, nearly al lied to copal, which is the product of leaf-bearing trees growing at the pres ent day.

Pension Consumptives’ Families. In Germany, when a person breaks down with consumption, he is sent to a government sanatorium, where he is kept until he recovers or dies.

As a matter of fnet, telescopes were not invented till over 100 years after Columbus was born. Peat Supply of Sweden. Sweden’s supply of peat seems In exhaustible.

Condemns Flannels. Dr. 1./'onard Williams, in an article In the l»ndon Practitioner, declares lhat flannel underclothing Is a fraud. “Dry flannel," he says, "is practically unabsorbent, whereas linen, cotten and silk are. In different degrees, very absorbent.” He concludes that "wool en underclothing is. of all others, the best calculated to induce a relaxed and unresponsive condition of the skin.” Cheerfulness and Grumbling. How many people in real life there are who are a perpetual drain on the sympathies of their more cheerful friends and neighbors! They like to be comforted with, strong, uplifting words; they appreciate cheerfulness —ln others. It does not occur to them that it Is a cultivable quality, just as grumbling is. Corn Birds Will Not Bother. A well known farmer says he wets his seed corn with coal oil before planting it. and as a result the birds and insects do not bother It before It comes up.

Dliss Nellie HolmesT of the Young Woman’s Temper ance Association of Buffalo, N.Y., strongly advises all suffering women to rely, as she did, up on Lydia E. Pinkbam’s Vege table Compound. “ Dear Mrs. Pinkhaii : Your med icine is indeed an ideal woman’s medi cine, and by far the best I know to restore lost health and strength. I suffered misery for several years, being troubled with menorrhagia. My back ached, I had bearing-down pains and frequent headaches. I would often wake from restful sleep, and in such pain that I suffered for hours before I could go to sleep again. I dreaded the long nights as much as the weary days. I consulted two different physicians, hoping to get relief but, finding that their medicine did not seem to cure me. I tried your Vegetable Compound on the recommendation of a friend from the East who was visiting me. “ I am glad that 1 followed her ad vice, for every ache and pain is gone, and not only this, but my general health is much improved. I have a fine appetite and have gained in flesh. My earnest advice to suffering women is to put aside all other medicines and to take Lydia E.
