A weekly Bulletin Announcing the Activities of the Members

The longer you live the more for
cibly it is impressed upon you that
you do not know as much as you
thought you did, and the longer I
keep at this job of trying to figure
out something to put into this column
the more forcibly it is impressed up
on me that I don't know anything.
Now any fool should have known the
reason why the boys were so stingy
with their dope for this column, but
I didn't (and that classes myself
less than a fool) but I oiled up the
wheels in my cranium and they
ground out this fact. The most of
the Town Criers had to save their pen
nies for an occasion that was to be
pulled last Saturday night, and when
you get in the "Stingy" rut with one
thing1, you just can't help but be
stingy all round, but now that most of
the boys are Elks, I hope that they
will* loosen up with a little news so
that I can make a news column of this
instead of a junk column. One fel
low helped me out with most of thiB,
for which I am very thankful, who

'I'm Enjoying Perfect Health Since
Taking Tanlac," Says Minne
"After hearing sd much about Tan
lac I put it on trial in my case and
it has certainly proved a winner for
me," said W. G. Jargenson, of 524
Essex St., Minneapolis, Minn., an em
ployee of the Northwestern Telephone
"Before I got hold of Janlac my
troubles of three years standing had
pulled me down until my Work was a
daily grind and I was in constant
misery both day and night. My kid
neys were badly disordered and were
continually worrying me, and I had
pains in my back and joints that were
almost unbearable. My sides hurt
me terribly, also,. and at times the
plains were so severe as to almost
drive me wild. Nothing seemed to
do me any good and I hardly see how
I managed to hold out at my work.
"When I got Tanlac I found the
very thing I was needing, for it just
built me right up and has put me in
the very best of condition. My kid
neys no longer bother me and. I never
have an ache or pain at all. In fact
I'm just enjoying perfect health and
gladly give Tanlac all the credit."

TOLD IN MINOT
Resident Known to All Our Read

Readers of the Independent have
been told again and again 'of the
merits of that reliable, time-proved
kidney remedy—Doan's Kidney Pills.
The experiences told are not those of
unknown persons, living far away.
The cases are Minot cases, told by
O. J. Hutchinson, 601 2nd St., N. E.,
Minot, says: "Last summer I had
trouble with my kidneys and my back
pained by spells. Every time I
stooped forward a sharp pain would
catch me across the center of my
back. My kidneys acted too fre
quently and were annoying having to
get up so often through the night to
pass the kidney secretions. I read
about Doan's Kidney Pills being so
good so I went to Taylor's Drug Store
and got three boxes. After using
Doan's my troubles were over. The
secretions' were cleared up and my
back was strong. I gladly endorse
Doan's Kidney Pills for they certain
ly proved beneficial to me."
