September, 1906, I told in a pub

this time I am glad to say that I
have had no need of a kidney

to my bed for five weeks by an
attack of lumbago, and the doctor
told me the complaint was a re

severe that I could not arise or
turn over and I was practically
helpless. I was given several

cane of some pate, translucent
green wood, selected to match his
pale green tie and the marvelous
green opal which held it in place,
and prodded his friend severely

received the clipping, read It

"It does; several notions. I

with dignity, "because I perceive

demanded Bertram, sitting up.
"Only what the advertisement;
tells me. It was written by a

'Apply In proper person.' Did a

"Well, It's nothing to me what

PORTLAND, Ore., April B.—
Women suffragettes are making
a systematic campaign to line up

The Central Labor council of
Portland is on record as favor-
Ing woman suffrage.

While they were talking: a color

asked for a package of Uncnda Mis

Company's Kulesman how easy It
was to substitute, the proprietor
himself waited on the woman
showing her the Imitation package
and advising her to take it, saying
that it was "Just as g%od" as
