Wood Hauling Bee.
The people of
Tick Ridge got

certainly is. They settled down near
Garden drove sixty years ago when
they were young and full of life and
were always willing to lend a helping
hand to those who needed it. At (hat
time Garden Grove was not tho beauti
ful and well built town it is now. Then
the place was occupied by a few strag
ling Indians, and a number of Mor
mons, who rested here a few years,
when traveling from Nauvoo, 111., to Salt
Lake City, Utah. Mr. and Mrs. Davis
were then young, now they are getting
old, both having passed the Four Score
milestone in life's journey. They have
a nice comfortable home and are always
pleased to have their friends call on
them and they know how to treat them
when they come. The writer of this
remembers that nearly forty years ago
when he first settled in Garden Grove
township, when the dwellings in the
county were "few and far between"
that wood cutting and hauling Bees,
plowing Bees, haying Bees, husking
Bees, and all kind of Bees, were more
common tban they have been in late
years. But they are not entirely for
gotten as Mr. and Mrs. Davis and their
numerous friends can testify. The
women folks took a hand in this busi
ness as well as. the men, and would con
sider themselves slighted if they were
not to "lend a helping hand" in getting
up a dinner for the wood-haulers such
as they don't always get at home.—

A Thousand Dollars Worth of Good.
A. II. Thurnes, a well known coal

trouble for years, passing gravel and
stones with excruciating pain. I got
no relief from medicine until I began
taking Foley's Kidney Cure, then the
result was surprising. A few doses
started the brick dust like line stones
and now I have no pain across my kid
ney and I feel like a new man. It has
done me $1000 worth of good."
Went Straight Up.
Henry Wilson, a young man who lives
near Oatnbria, was in Humeston last
Friday and met with a peculiar accident
in front of Johnson & Son's restaurant.
He filled his pipe with loose tobacco
from a side pocket which also contained
some cartridges which he had placed in
his pocket shortly before. With the
pinch of tobacco with which he lilled
his pipe was one of these cartriges,
Mr. Wilson not noticing the kind of a
smoke he was preparing. After light
ing the pipe and talked to a friend a
few minutes he walked across the
street to Johnson's restaurant and when
just in front of the door the cartridge
exploded carrying the bowl of the pipe
straight up into the air and frightened
the young man until his hair stood up
"like unto the quills upon the fretful
porcupine." It was fun for everybody
but the victim of the accident and it is
safe to assume that he will hereafter
carry his cartridges and tobacco in
separate compartments of his garments,
although, fortunately, no damage was
occasioned in this instance. —Humeston

Cough remedy. Give it and a quick

They Are Found In Every
Many citizens of Leon have good
reasons to be thankful for burdens lift
ed from aching backs, which they bore
patiently for years. Scores tell about
their experience publicly. Here is a
case of it:
Miles Martindale, living in the south
west part of Leon, says: "Last winter
I came home from a days work and was
taken with chills and fever. Since
then my kidneys have bothered me.
The secretions from those organs
contained a sediment, were full of acid,
scalded, pain existed in the loins and
kidneys and during the day if 1 stooped,
sharp twinges were my reward and at
night 1 was unable to straighten if 1
even sat still in a chair for a short time.
I tried everything which came to my
notice in the shape of a medicine but 1
really think 1 was growing worse in
place of better. Finally deciding to try
Doan's Kidney Pills I went to L. P. Van
Werden's drug store for a box. They
gave better results than any other
medicine 1 ever tried. They stopped
the backache and cured the kidney
secretions. I consider this prepara
tion very valuable."
