THE SANITARY ONION, -Tfy Good for Most Everything From Deaf ness to Gumboils. "1 have implicit faith in the sanitar) properties of an onion," said a trained nurse. "It is my custom to introduce an ouion into every sick room where I am called in, hanging it up some where. I believe it attracts all mala dies and infections to itself. Violets and roses and lillies are very pretty in a sieli room, and the patient is doubtless cheered when his friends think enough of him to send ihem, but practical friendship would dictate that a basket of onions lie sent. There is something about, them hostile to dis ease. The juice of an onion is a cure for deafness, a roasted onion reme dies earache and gumboils, and onions and holly berries bruised together are a certain cure for chillblams. A poul tice of onions aud cream is also good for bunions.

Mineral, Idaho. Oct. ICth.—(Spe cial.)—That a sure cure has been dis covered for those sciatic pains that make so many lives miserable is the firm opinion of Mr. D. S. Colson, a well-known resident of this place, and he does not hesitate to say that cure is Dodd's Kidney Pills. The reason Mr. Colson is so firm in his opinion is that he had those terrible pains and is cured. Speaking of the matter hr says: "I am only too happy to say Dodd's Kidney Pills have done me lots of good. I had awful pains in my hip so I could hardly walk. Dodd's Kidney Pills stopped it entirely. I think they are a grand medicine." All Sciatic and Rheumatic Pains are causcd by Uric Acid in the blood. Dodd's Kidney PIHb make healthy kid neys and healthy kidneys strain all the Uric acid out of the blood. With the cause removed there can be no Rheumatism or Sciatica.
