The Greatest Medical Discovery
of the Age.
DONALD KENNEDY, CF ROXBURY. MASS.,
Has discovered in one of our common
pasture weeds a remedy that cures every
kind of Humor, from the worst Scrofula
down to a common Pimple.
He has tried it in over eleven hundred
cases, and never failed except in two cases
(both thunder humor). He has now in his
possession over two hundred certificates
of its value, all within twenty miles of
Boston. Send postal card for book.
A benefit is always experienced from
the first bottle, and a'perfect cure is war
ranted when the right quantity is taken.
When the lungs are affected it causes
shooting pains, like needles passing
through them; the same with the Liver or
Bowels. This is caused by the ducts being
6topped, and always disappears in a week
after taking it. Read the label.
If the stomach is foul or bilicas it will
cause squeamish feelings at first.
No change of diet ever necessary. Eat
the best you can get, and enough of it.

Helpless Invalida-Tbe Story of One
Who Suffered for Twenty Years.
From the Farmers' Voice, Chicago. FiL
Edson A. Wood, who now lives at DtX)
Washington boulevard, Chicago, 111., was
born on a farm in Wyoming County, N.
Y., fifty years ago. As a young man he
suffered two sun strokes in the tields.
When the war broke out, he joined the
57tb Illinois Volunteers, with which he
served two rears, when sickness forced
his discharge. The effects of the sun
strokes and his army life undermined his
health and he soon found his brain, heart
and kidneys were affected. For eight
years he was with the West Chicago
Street Car Company; but was forced to
seek lighter work, as the exposure in
creased his bronchial and asthmatic trou
bles. His constitution gradually but sure
ly breaking down, strange dizzy spells be
coming more frequent, he finally sought
relief in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
lie said to a reporter: "It was some time
about a year ago when I was very poorly,
that my head was giving me a great deal
of trouble, dizzy spells, aches and queer
feelings, and then I also had a strange
feeling of uncertainty in the use of my
lower limbs when walking.
"Physicians examined my condition
closely and were of the opinion that 1 had
all the first symptoms of locomotor ataxia,
and I believe they '.ere right, also last
summer I had a very hard time with an
attack of tonsilitis and neuralgia, from
which I did not recover for some time. It
was then that I commenced to take these
Pink Pills, and had only taken a few
boxes when 1 discovered a remarkable
change for the better in every way. The
pills neemed to relieve me of aches and
pains, the symptoms of locomotor ataxia
have left me entirely, and they have made
me strong and feel like myself.
"1 am going to continue with the use of
the pills for the reason that having re
lieved me of the ailments I thought had
come to stay, having been caused thirty
years ago from hardships in the army, I
am practically rid of them and will lose
no efforts when I have the remedy at
hand to keep them rid. I am only too glad
to tell all mv friends what experience 1
have had with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
ami when they see the good physical con
dition I am in now, although near sixty
years of age. they will come to the same
conclusion as myself.

facts concerning myself.

The Japanese Method.
It is customary among most civilized
nations, when launching or christen
ing a vessel, to break a bottle of cham
pagne or other wine over her bows. The
Japanese, with their usual thrifty no
tions, do not believe in this unnecessary
waste. When they christen a vessel,
instead of breaking a bottle, they liber
ate number of pigeons. At the chris
tening of the Yashiina, the largest and
most powerful battleship ever con
structed for the Japanese navy, which
took place a short time ago at the KIs
wick shipyard, on the Tyne, this unus
ual sight was seen. Madame Kato, the
wife of a member of the Japanese em
bassy, christened the vessel and let
loose the pigeons at the same time. It
