Brownsville Testimony.

Don't depend on a stranger's

And decide for yourself.
Here is one case of it:
N. L. Miller, of the firm of Mil
ler & Lich, painters, and living
on Elizabeth St., Brownsville, Tex
as, says: "I can conscientiously
state that four months' past, since
using Doan's Kidney Pills, pro
cured at J. L. Putegnat & Bro's
drug store, I have felt better, and
am now in better condition than I
had been for several years past.
Before taking your remedy I was
annoyed almost constantly with a
pain across the small of my back
and in the loins. If I sat, or was
still-for any length of time, and
then made a sudden move, a sharp
twinge would dart throught me
like lightning. I used two boxes,
all told, and from uvy experience
would advise everybody suffering
from kidney troubles to give this
wonderful remedy a trial."

Mexico the Neglected.
''With modern hotels Mexico
would soon become a great field
for American tourist travel," said
General Passenger Agent Hatch of
the Illinois Central Railroad.
Mr. Hatch has just returned
from an extensive tour of the
neighboring republic and he is
loud in his praise of the treatment
accorded the American railroad
officers by the Mexicans;
' 'The average American visitor
to Mexico does not see the best
part of the country, which lies
south of Mexico City." he continu
ed. "The railroads are well
constructed and Well managed.
Nearly all of the train and station
employesand many of the officers of
railways are Americans. The age
of Mexico was the fascination for
me. It is a more ancient preposi
tion than Europe, and probably
than Egypt. Actual records are
scarce, but enough has been dis
covered to place its population
and civilization almost back of any
known district in the world. The
Mexicans are a delightful people,
and the general passenger agents
who made the trip will not soon
forget it."
