HOMEY PHILOSOPHY FOR 1922.
Why should a man write himsellf
a fool by passing judgment, w^en
the judgment of today is appealed
tomorrow and tlhe court of public
decision turns it all upside down?
It's better to follow old Admiral
Sigabee's advice and suspend judg
ment. If we suspend it long
enough we won't decide anything—
definitely. First the world was
flat, and that was right. Now it's
round and that is right. Every
thing changes. Even modesty and
morals are geographical. When you
sum it up only Truth and Justice
are fixed, so perhaps it's ibest to
spend our time getting rid of their
counterfeits and establishing what
we are sure will last. Where do
we get pounding some poor devil for
obeying a driving force he has not
the power to overcome when we
might switch him down a different
track and make his steam turn mill
wheels instead of tread mills?
If your radiator haa "got your
goat," ithen you are looking for ua.
We'll make It give your goat back
and put it in good order at the same
time. Why not give us a trial?

OH MY BACK!
The Expression of Many a Kidney
A stubborn backache is cause to
suspect kidney trouble. When the
kidneys are inflamed and swollen,
stooping brings a sharp twinge in
the small of the back that almost
takes the breath away. Doan's Kid
ney Pills revive sluggish kidneys—
relieve aching backs. Here's con
vincing proof of merit.
John B. Kent, painter, 264 W. Sex
ton st„ Arco, Idaho, says: "I had
quite a little trouble from my kid
neys. My back gave me the worst
suffering and it was always weak
and lame and ached so severely at
times I could hardly stand It. Then
the kidney secretions passed too free
ly and were highly colored. I used
a few boxes of Doan's Kidney Pills
and they gave me fine results."
Price 60c, at. all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy—get
Doan's Kidney Pills—the same that
