Sidney Justus, fruit dealer, of Men tor, Ohio, says: "I was cured by Doan's Kidney Pills of a severe case of kid ney trouble, oi eight or ten years' standing. 1 suffered the most severe backache and other pains in the region of ^ the k i d n e y s. These were es pecially severe when stooping to lift anything, and often 1 could hardly straighten my hack. The aching was had In the daytime, lint just as had at night, and 1 was always lame In the morning. 1 was bothered witli rheumatic pains and dropsical swelling of the feet. The urinary passages were painful, and the secretions were discolored and so free that often I had to rise at night. I felt tired all day. Half a box served to relieve me, and three boxes effected a permanent cure." A TRIAL FREE.—Address Foster Milburn Co., Buffalo. N. Y. For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents.

The Bertillon system has received a sail blow in the demonstration of the fact that a person may to a very great extent change his physical pro portions. Postal Inspector William Williams, attached to the Denver post office, has taken it on himself to show how this could be done, and some time ago he subjected himself to an examination and then started in on a systematic scheme for the purpose of bringing about such changes in his general shape and appearance as to t _v m y f A make it difficult to identify him by the measurements previously made by the Bertillon system, which were thought to be infallible. At the time of the first examination Mr. Williams weighed 190 pounds and measured 5 feet 2 inches, and after going through a somewhat prolonged course of train ing he weighed 150 pounds and meas ured 5 feet 4 Inches in height. The system of physical culture taken up by Mr. Williams in his experiment was that of loosening the bones in their sockets and allowing the space where they were pulled apart at the Joints to fill with cartilage. By this method the body is lengthened with out over-development of the muscles, such as Is the case in physical train ing adopted by athletes. Then in order to effectually prove his ground that the Bertillon system was worthless, Williams submitted himself to arrest in several different cities where the system was made use of in the identification of crimi nals and in no case was he recognized by the original record. The ability to increase the height w r as the one thing which broke down the certainty of the Bertillon system. An apparatus to produce this in creased height was recently awarded a patent and a drawing of the instru ment is shown herewith. In a few words, the subject is placed on a sort of a rack, with the head and feet se curely fastened, and by the applica tion of a screw the subject is literally stretched. By undergoing this opera tion at regular intervals it is said to be possible to make even greater ad ditions to the height than Mr. Will iams succeeded in doing. Novel Hand Bag.

The Kansas Southwestern a short branch road running out of Arkansas City, has opened up a conscience fund account. Some time ago the agent at Caldwell received the following letter: "Agent—Will you please send the ad dress of the superintendent of the Frisco depot, or where shall I write to make a wrong right?" The required address was given, and the following letter came as a re sponse: "Dear Sir—When I was a small child I took some of the rail road company's coal, which I wish to pay for, as I am now a child of God, and heaven and lost souls are my f»»ly desires." In the letter was enclosed a postoffice order for 75 cents. One-Handed Tennis Champion.

Tlie residents of the western part of this city were thrown into a panic yes terday by the appearance of two large black hears that appeared at the home of M. Sloper. Sloper's home is located just inside the city limits, next to the mountains. The heavy snow had driven the hears down in search of food, and Sloper's place was the first to meet their gaze. Mrs. Sloper was at work in (he house when suddenly she heard the screams of her little daughter, who was playing in the yard, and rushed out to see what the matter was. She saw the black beasts only a few yards from her child, trotting toward tier. She promptly picked the child up and ran into the house, the animals follow ing her up onto the porch. Mrs. Sloper quickly telephoned fol help', and a posse of men with dogs ar rived to dispatch the unwelcome vis itors, but in the meantime the hears had left for the mountains, search was kept up all day. hut the in truders could not he found.—Ukiah Correspondent Sacramento Bee.
