The reason is plain the article did not fulfill the promises of the manu facturer. This applies more particu larly to a medicine. A medicinal prep aration that has real curative value almost sells Itself, as like an endless chain system the remedy is recom mended by those who have been cured, to those who are in need of it. In an interview on the subject a prominent local druggist says "Take for example Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, a preparation I have sold for many years and never hesitate to recom mend, for in almost every case it shows immediate results, as many of my customers testify. No other kid ney remedy that I know of has so large a sale." The success of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp- Root is due to the fact that it fulfils every wish in overcoming kidney, liver and bladder diseases, corrects urinary troubles and neutralizes the uric acid which causes rheumatism. , A free trial bottle will be sent by mail, absolutely free.

"Our boy was born in Toronto on Oct. 13. 1908. and when three months old a slight rash appeared on his cheek. What appeared to be a water blister would form. When broke, matter would ran out, starting new blisters until his entire face, head and shoulders were a mass ot scabs and you could not see a particle of clear skin. Other parts of his body were affected, but not to such an extent. We did not know what to do for him and itrled about erery adver- ' tisea remedy witnoui avail, indeed soma of them only added to his suffering and one in particular, the Remedy, almost put the infant into convulsions. The family doctor pre scribed for bim and told us to bathe the babv in buttermilk. This did not do any good, so we took bim to a hospital. He was treated as an out-patient twlre a week and he rot worse, if anything. We tben called in an other doctor and inside of a week the boy was. to all appearances, cured and the doctor said his work was done. But the very next day it broke out as bad as ever. "We decided that It could not be cured and must run its course and so we just kept his anas bandaged to his side to prevent his tearing his flash. Wa left Toronto and shortly after our arrival in Duluth, the Cuti cura Remedies were recommended. We started asinr; them m May. 1909, and soon the cure was complete. You would not think he was the same child for Cuticura made bis skin perfectly clear and he is entirely free from the skin disease. There has been no return this time.

The Texas Federation of "Women'r Clubs is going to ask the Texas legis lature, to pension widows in order that they may properly bring up and edu cate their children to become good Bjf substantial citizens so says the Pen sacola Journal in a subtle article de signed to encourage the doctrine. The measure is full of wisdom. The pensioning of a widow during " her widowhood would tend to protect young men from being married - un awares and could not possibly do any harm to the children. The measure Is frank and honest and shows that the Texas Federation of "Women's Clubs is composed of women who do not harbor sinister designs. "Were the measure so framed as to provide for the pensioning of the chi dren of widows so that they could be brought up to be good and substantial citizens, there would underlie it a do- testable principle charged with men ace. The children of a widow, some times described as "Tier encum brances," stand between men and th snares that the widows set. A widow without children Is no more dangerous per se than a widow with a large and varied assortment of them, but widows are never considered per se. They are not studied in isolation but in relation to their impedimenta. A- system of pensions for the children of widows would obviously release the whole widow creation upon mankind and ex pose the latter defenseless against their designs. The Federation of "Womens Clubs of Texas has taken high ground In this matter by proposing a law that can not possibly be suspected of conceal lng a "Joker." Pensions to widows. terminating upon a second marriage. is distinctly a suggestion in the nature of conservation and would promote the publlo safety.
