Women as Well as Men Are Mad Miserable by Kidney and Bladder Trouble. Kidney trouble preys upon the mind discourages and lessens ambition ; beauty vigor and cheerful ness soon disappear when the kidneys are ' out of order or dis eased. Kidney trouble has become so prevalent that it is not uncom moil for a child to be born afflicted with weak kidneys. If the child urinatestoooften, if the urine scalds the flesh, or if, when the child reaches an age when it should be able to control the passage, it is yet afflicted with bed-wetting, depend upon it, the cause of the diffi culty Is kidney irouoie, anu me ursi step should be towards the treatment of these important organs. This unpleasant trouble is due to a diseased coudition of the kidneys and bladder and not to a linbit as most nconle suppose. Women as well as men are made miser able with kidney and bladder trouble, and both need the same great remedy The mild and the immediate effect of SwamD-Root is soon realized. It is sold by druggists, in fifty cent and one-dollar size bottles.

I. KENDRICK, Manager 501-503 PolK Street J r THE IMPRESSIONS Or A TENDERFOOT Being Black-and-white Sketches of Real Human Interest. HRISTMAS COMES ONLY ONCE IN A YEAR, but it is a pity that it does not come about once in a month. The bustle and stir that prevades Ama rillo how, and for that matter, the whole civilized world, is proof enough of the value of Christmas as a civilizing agent. No matter whether a man be lieves in the story of the Christ Child or not. the in stinct of Christmas gets close to him, no matter how hardened he may be in the way of the world. You will see some pretty hard old bats in this town sneaking home with suspicious looking bundles under their arms this week, and many an old married hippopotamus will find himself thinking of other days when life was not all a hard scramble, and the fires burned brightly on the old hearthstone that has been cold for many a year. Even though the glimpse is fleeting, he is a better man for it. granting that in a few days he relapses into t.h old way of skinning and being skinned. That is the way of the world, ac cording to the modern standards, and it is like a breath of heaven to live even for a short time, in the atmosphere of a clearer and purer life. I have never Lelieved that there has really been any change in the human heart, or that there are any different spiritual conditions than prevailed when we were boys. To be sure we lead a more rapid gait nowadays, but whether life is a boon or not is owing to how we mix up the milk of human kindness with our daily walk. There is no guarantee of a calm old age, or of a happy middle or young age, like that factor which has made life worth living since the morning stars sang together. It is absolute in its power. You can see it verified all over town, all over the world, this day and every other day in the year. It is not the people who have most who are happiest, for the man who worries about what his money is earning has no time or dis position to take hold of the one thing that can lift his soul out of the narrow pe'r centage horizon. He is too busy to notice the struggles and the well-doing of those around him, and might as well be in jail so far as any real participation in the divine side of life is concerned. The divine spark may start up for a moment, but it is only a spark of the di vine ray, and is followed by a darkness all the more profound, because it has hot the fleshandblooditativeness that appertains to the common people, who will get the real enjoyment out of this Christmas, as they do of every Christmas; and theirs is a right more valuable than all the treasures in the world. About the only fault that I can see in the blessing of life today is that most of us are prone to forget that whether we will or no we are our brother's keeper, and that we owe a duty to the world beyond that of self-aggrandizement or the amassment or money. Too many of us forget that celestial doctrine of the Colden Rule, except so far as it re lates to ourselves, and twist it around with the pernicjous readiness of Dayid Harum. That is the key to the whole shooting match. That rule is the sesame to all human happiness.and there is no more complete proof of the Infinite wisdom of God. Take that maxim out of the Bi ble and the book would not be worth a second hand chew of tobacco. Leaye it and take all the rest and it would not make a particle of differ ence in the advancement and betterment of mankind. If the milennium ever comes, It will be by the application of the Golden Rule. It can come no other way, in world that has for ages been the battle ground of contending selfishness, and which may some time turn to a simpler faith, and that which above all others is brighter now than it was the day of the gentle man of Galilee. It is the easiest of application of all earthly dogmas, and pays a higher per centage on the investment. Find those lives in which it is a daily practice, and you will find the possessors of treasures such as the per cent popula tion never dreamed of. They may be as poor as poor can be. in fact they can not be rich and live that rule, but they have with them every day that which turns away wrath, makes the buidens of the less fortu nate easier to bear, which reflects itself in the citadel of their own breasts, which no man may enter, the holy cf holies so far as we crea tures of the dust are concerned. I can think of no more miserable spectacle in .this world than .the man who is closing the brief span we call life,, and who all through it has lived in and for himself, and who has lived on thit Harumin prin ciple, "Do unto him as he would do to you and do it fust." In all of my reportorial experience I can recall no more terrible thing than the slow death of a millionaire out in the wilds of Arizona. All of his mon ey would not prolong the span a single hour, and day by day he felt his grasp slipping from the thread. Then he began to think of his life, of the opportunities he had missed to make other people happy, which is all thsre is to it anyrnv. "Whit hive I dona for my brother man?' he would ask again and again, and there were none who could console him. All of his stay he had been too busy in the scramble to note the struggles around him, or to hold out the helping hand to a living soul. When the end came it was a desolate and lonely blotting out of a spirit that had built around itself a barrier against all of the kindly impulses of the human heart, and only the infinite pity of the great Father could welcome home one who had done nothing for his children. It is in the application of theGoiaen Rule that so many so-called Christians fall down miserably. They don't mean to, but the worst side of the present day life lays hold of them when the inspiration of the sanctuary fades away. Did you ever go to church and hear some fat and sleek brother rise from the amen corner and say that he was ready to do anything for Jesus? That always seemed like poppycock to me. As if the son of the Almighty, whose love encompasses and redeems the world, whose smile is eternal, could be benefitted by any thing such a pot-gutted son-of-a-gun could do! The only way any mortal can do anything for such a being is by the observance of the Golden Rule: by doing something for the phildren of men, by living the principle mac nas me power to remove all of the sting, and all of the bitterness from those who are laboring in the everlasting grind. That is the only way and as this Christmas and many other Christ ma8es come and go shall we grow spiritually as we do it. Professions are cheap, but in the application is the key, and we shall be better men and women as we live and apply the principle: "Do unto other as ye would they should do unto you." La Grippe and Pneumonia. Pneumonia often follows la grippe but never follows the use of Foley's Honey and Tar. It cures la grippe coughs and prevents pneumonia and consumption. Ask for Foley's Honey and Tar and re fuse any substitute offered. Mr. G. Vacher. of 157 Osgood street, Chicago, writes: "My wife had a severe case of la gripp three years ago and it left her with a terrible cough. She tried a bottle of Foley's Honey and Tar and it gave imme diate relief. A 50 bottle cured her cough entirely." Refuse substi tutes. Goldingfifi Richardson. 44-lm Hot Water Heating.
