'? Last winter people were raising a great deal of bellowing about the condition the turnpike was in, and now thit it is macadamized and is an excellent road, they are growl ing equally as hard because they have to pay toll. The road is a fine one, and will be kept up, but it can't be done on wind or growling. It will take money and plenty of it .for a year or two. Just as soon as the company can pay its fixed ex penses and interest on bonds and so on, the tolls will be reduced, but not before.

The evening until about u o'clock was passed in social diver sions of divers kinds in the house or on the lawn. At that hour all repaired to the Ircquois club rooms on Hill street where music aud daucing were the features for a short time. One of the most pleas iug features of the evening's enter tainment was a number of well ex ecuted selections by the Orpheus Mandolin and Guitar club.

How ever Mayor Lawrence is giving them a few lessons that will proba bly be invaluable in after years. He has been arresting and fining their agents repeatedly.

Yesterday afternoon a state war rant was issued by Justice Hissam for the three agents and they were each fined $100 and costs, and were further required to furnish bond in the sum of $500 as a guarantee that they would sell no more "booze" in the city. HOW TO FIND OUT. Fill a bottle or common glass with urine and let it stand twenty four hours; a sediment or settling indicates an unhealthy condition of the kidneys. When urine stains linen it Is positive evidence of kid ney trouble. Too frequent desire to urinate or pain in the back, is also convincing proof that the kidneys and bladder are out of order. WHAT TO DO. There is comfort in the knowledge so often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root, the great kidney rem edy, fulfills every wish in relieving pain in the back, kidneys, liver,, bladder and every part of the urin ary passages. It corrects inability to hold urine and scalding pain in passing it, or bad effects following use of liquor, wine or beer, and over comes that unpleasant necessity of being compelled to get up many times during the night to urinate. The mild and the extraordinary effect of Swamp Root is soon real ized. It stands the higher for its wonderlul cures of the most dis tressing cases. If you need a medi cine you should have the best.
