General Pershing's War Map.
2n installing General Pershing's war
map In the old National Museum build
ing In Washington, the commander's
room at the front just as it looked
when the map was in actual use, is
beihg reproduced as a setting. Here
will be the chairs used by the general
and his aids while they studied the
map, which changed hourly, night and
day, as reports came in and were re
corded. The table at which the officers
looked over documents will stand as it
used to at one side, and the walls will
be covered with the identical lineoleum
that was a background for the map.
The map was brought over hi pieces
now joined together, and the conven
tional design of the lineoleum is said
to give an odd kitchenlike domesticity
to the room in which General Pershing
watched history writing itself in a
very literal sense on the wall.

Thousands Have Kidney
Trouble and Never
Applicants for Insurance Often
Judging from reports from druggists
who are constantly in direct touch with
the public, there one preparation that
has been very successful in overcoming
these conditions. The mild and healing
influence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is
won 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
so 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.
However, if you wish first to test this
great preparation send ten cents to Dr.

sample bottle. When writing be sure and
