Danger in Delay. Kidney Diseases Are Too Dangerous For Franklin People To Neglect. The great danger of kidney troubles is that they get a firm hold before the sufferer recognizes them. Health is grandually undermined. Backache, headache, nervousness, lameness, soreness., lumbago, urinary troubles, dropsy, diabetes and Bright's disease follow in merciless succession. Don't neglect your kidneys. Cure the kid neys with the Certain and safe reme dy* Doan's Kidney Pills, which has cured people right here iu this locality. Tony Acurso, of Morgan City, La., says: "My back was so painful that it seemed as if it would break iu two. If I stooped or brought any strain on the muscles of my loins i suffered in tensely. The least sudden movement caused sharp pains to dart through my body and if l contracted a cold, it "settled in my kidneys, aggravating my trouble. No relief was found until I heard of Doan's Kidney Pills and procured a box. They entirely rid me of all pains and lameness in my back and I felt well until about a month after when as the result of a strahl l felt a return of backache, Doan's Kidney Pills, however, quickly removed the attacks aud from that time on there has never been a sign of kidney trouble.

The Postoffice Department has met with great embarass meut in certain localities where labor lias been scarce and wages high owing to land rushes, mining excite ment or other causes, because of its inability to secure as sistance in handling the mails at prices within the limits of the appropriations. The committee on postoffice and postroads lias approved a bill authorizing the Post master General to meet such conditions by paying higher compensation to clerks and carriers when unusual local conditions mak* it necessary. There is a fund of $125,000 out of which such payments may be met. The necessity of some such authorization as the one ask ed for is evidenced by the experience of the Depart ment at Goldfield, Nev., when it was necessary for a time to pay clerks $5 a day; at Butte, Mont., where the pay was thirty cents an hour, at Fairbanks, Alaska, where the salary allowed by law was $600 a year and the low est salary at which a clerk could be had was $2,000. "Nobody is going to poke out a good eye for the sake of getting a glass eye," said the city salesman, "but I know a man who makes money on his glass eye. He goes to Europe three times a year on business. While there lie does a little trading in jewels as a side line. It is on the homeward trip that he turns his glass eye to good account. In the cavity back of it he carried two or three small but valuable diamonds. Half the duty saved is his commission on those stones alone. The customs inspec tors have never got on to him. Naturally they can't go around jabbing their fin gers into people's eyes." Till! Gnal I reailiniî llmvii the Little. Five hundred years ago John Ball, looking out over England, tolls us that he saw "the great treading down the little, the strong beating down the weak, and cruel men fearing not, and kind men daring not, and wise men caring not," and then with his heart burning within him, lie cries aloud, "and the saints in heaven forbearing, and yet bidding me not to forbear." If we compare our time with his, we will admit that although the great still tread down the little, and the strong beat down the weak, that the cruel are at last becoming afraid of public opinion, that kind men are more daring in their schemes of alleviation than they used to be. and wise men are more solicitous.—Jane Addams at the Conference of Charities and Correction. The Hatpin Evil Solved. There is a good deal of selfishness in the way that women run men through with their hatpins in crowd ed conveyances. I have sometimes thought that I would fill my pockets with little corks, and whenever a pinpoint was about to enter my optic nerve I would stick a cork on the pin and thus render it innocuous. It could be done with all the forms of the most rigorous politeness. Just say to the lady whose j >in you are dodging: ' 'Please hold your hat still for a mo ment. The operation will be perfectly painless." Then clap on the cork, remove your hat, smile pleasantly, bow, and the incident will have been closed.—Charles Batteil Loomis in Smith's Magazine. Australia's last drouth lasted seven years, and there never has been one like it since Australia was settled. At the beginning of this dry spell there were twenty mil lion sheep in Queensland, and when the rains came only seven million were left, the dry spell ending in 1903, and to-day there are as many sheep as ever. In these seven seasons the flocks have trebled themselvs. Fortunes have been made since those years of disaster at a single run, and an irrigating lesson has been learned that will minimize their terror if they should come again. In the interior of Queensland the yearly average of rainfall sinks to below ten inches; rivers are scarce, creeks are few, and in summer dry up to a chain of water holes. Imperial statistics show that in Germany the total number of accidents increas ed from 5.30 per 1,000 per sons in 1898 to 6.77 per 1,000 in 1907.
