The boat is thirty feet on the keel and is estimated to weigh seventeen tons, and as the present resting place is two miles from the neatest stream of water emptying into the bay.

You can tell just cs well as a physician whether your kidneys are diseased or healthy. The way to do this is to take a bottle or glass tumbler, and fill t with urine. If there is a sediment—powder-like substance—at the bottom after standing a day and night, there is something wrong with the kidney. Another sure sign of disease is a desire to urinate often , and still another sign is pain in the back, if urine stains|linen, there is no doubt that the kid neys are affected. Any and all diseases of the kidneys, liver, bladder and of the urinary passages and constipation of the bowels, are cured by I)r. David Kennedy’s Favorite Remedy. There is no question about its being the best and surest medicine in the world for such troubles. It quickly relieves and cures inability to hold urine, and people, young or old, who take it are not compelled to get up a number of times dur ing the night. For potting an end to that scalding pain experienced in passing urine, nothing is so good as Dr. David Kennedy's Favorite Remedy. It corrects the bad effects ot whiskey and beer. is pleasant to the taste, and does not seem to bemedi cine at ail.
