Thousands Have Kidney
Trouble and Never

Applicants for Insurance Often
Judging from reports from druggist
who are constantly in direct touch wit
the public, there is one preparation that
has been very successful in overcoming
these conditions. The mild and healing
influence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is
soon realized. It stands the highest for
its remarkable record of success.
An examining physician for one of the
prominent Life Insurance Companies, in
an interview of the subject, made the as
tonishing statement that one reason why
go many applicants for insurance are re
jected is because kidney trouble is so
common to the American people, and the
large majority of those whose applica
tions are declined do not even suspect
that they have the disease. It is on sale
at all drug stores in bottles of two sizes,
medium and large.

great preparation .send ten cents to Dr.

The Name
of Smith
(Copyright, 1919, by the McCluie News
paper Syndicate.)
For three hours Mona Moore had
been making her typewriter hum.
When she finished there was a pile of
completed copy before her that looked
as if it might have been turned out
by the whole staff of reporters, in
stead of by one. She gathered it up
with a sigh of relief. Thank good
ness, she had corrected it as she went
along and wouldn't have to read it
over, she thought.
"I've got ray page ready for Satur-
day," she called out to the city editor
"I've got an assignment for you."
the city editor said as he rummaged
through the papers on his desk. "Here
It is. Get the man's name and ad

replies to this advertisement." He
handed her a sheet of copy paper on
which was pasted a cutting from the
classified advertising columns.
"Wife WantedBetween twenty-five
and thirty advertiser will give hi*
bride a wedding present of $5,000. Box
136, this office." Mona read it aloud.
"Do you mean to tell me that any
girl has been foolish enough to answer
an ad like this?" she asked.
"There have been dozens of replies
and the advertisement has only been
running two days to date," the city
editor replied. "What girl wouldn't
fall for a wedding present like tfcat?"
"I wouldn't," Mona flashed. "A real
woman never considers money, but un
happily all women are Judged by the
fickle money-grabbing members of their
sex. There is something besides

"That's it exactly," the city editor
announced as he kept right on with his

could she, she had told herself often,
and she rather gloried In her "stlck-
A few minutes before she had been
ready to go home for a re.st, and she
had felt the need of it, but now tho
prospect of working on a story that
might develop into something god*!,
made her feel as fresh as if the day
wore just beginning.
She was in too great a hurry to wait
for the elevator to take her down tho
four stories that separated the repor
torial rooms from the business office,
but started down the stairs, tackling
them as briskly as she had seen the
city editor take them .time and again.
When she arrived at the bottom she
didn't feel quite so spry, but she
wouldn't acknowledge it to herself.
The gfrl in the business office hand
ed her the usual filled-in card with the
address of the man who advertised as
"Box 136." Mona looked at the name
and gasped. She could feel her cheeks
redden and her hair seemed to be ris
ing from her scalp.
The name written on the card was
"Albert Smith," the name of her
fiance. It couldn't be her Albert, sho
thought, wildly, but the name of the
hotel that was given as his address
told her It was.
Albert had just taken a suite at that
hotel because the rest of his family
had gone South and their home had
been closed up for the winter. She
did not stop to look at the number ot
the suite, for she could feel that the
girl was staring at her but she knew
It without looking.
She was on her way to the hotel
before she realized It, but stoppcl
when she recollected where she was
going and what she was going for.
How would she have the nerve to in
terview Albert on such a subject? She
was sure he had just Inserted the ad
vertisement because they had quar
reled and she bad broken off their en
gagement. Albert had said she would
be sorry, and this was the way he was
going to make her sorry.
But she wouldn't be sorry and ake
would tell Him sue wouldn't. Sue imtl
as much right to her opinions and her
independence as he had to his. At
this point of her Inward rage she dis
covered she was standing still In the
middle of a very busy business block.
She started to walk again, but her in
dignation kept up, in a cooler form,
however. Her thoughts went bacs
over their quarrel of a week before.
It had all come about because she
had stood up for the independence of
women to earn their own living. Al
bert had been so stubborn In his dis
agreement with her views that she had
given him back his ring by way of
proclaiming her independence tor life.
"I can support myself and be happy
without any man to bother over," she
had told him.
Mona sat In the sitting room of the
hotel for a long time before she could
gain courage to call on Albert. She
mapped out the speech that she would
make to him in the most professional
tone possible. "I have come, Mr.
Smith, to interview you and to learn
of your bridethe one you secured
from your advertisement in our pa
"The whole cl^y Is waiting eagerly
to hear of your success. How many
society mothers with wall-flowoe
daughters sent Imploring letters to
you? And will you give me a picture
of the lucky young lady you have chos
en also a picture of yourself, to use
imour Saturday special edition?"
There Mona stopped. She had not
thought of that before. Of course she
would have to use Albert's picture and
his name to make the story worth
while. Nobody knows better than a
journalist how that kind of publicity
cheapens a person. It would ruin Al
bert's business career and cause his
family annoyance and unhappiness. It
would even cause her to be ridiculed.
Why hadn't Albert thought of these
things? Perhaps he had lost his senses
over her treatment of him. Oh, he
must have! It was all her fault. She
had been selfish, and was as bad as
the type of women she had condemned
that afternoon. It wasn't a woman's
place to be Independent or wealthy if
she wasn't first of all a woman. That
is what Albert had meant, and now
she realized it. She dashed for the
elevator, too exhausted to attempt the
"Sit down and calm yourself, my
dear," Albert said after she had fired
half a dozen questions at him In one
breath. "What is it all about?"
"It's about this advertisement,"
Mona explained breathlessly. "What
ever made you put such an advertise
ment In the paper? You shouldn't have
done it. I love you and I will marry
"That sounds sensible, if the rest
does not," he smiled. "What advertise
ment do you mean?"
Mona showed him the advertisement
in the copy of the paper she had with
"What makes you think it is I?" he
"They gave me your address at the
office. The mail for 'Box 136' comes
to you at this hotel."
"No, it doesn't," he laughed "but
some of my mall has been going to the
man that gets those letters. There Is
another Albert Smith here. His suite
is on the next floor. That is what
comes from having a' name like Smith.
I think I should copyright it."
"It wouldn't do any good," she
smiled "and if you did I wouldn't be
able to change mine to Smith."
And he told her that Smith would be
the best name in the world when it
became hers.
