WILL AID MARRIAGE
PACIFIC COAST BACHELORS FORM AFFINITY CLUB. Scarcity of Maids Results in Society Which Plans to Import Women —Organization to Pay Wedding Expenses. Spokane, Wash. —Designed to solvt the problem of the scarcity of mar riageable young women in the island empire, the Spokane Affinity club has been organized in this city by 25 bach elors under 30 years of age. The society proposes to bring 6,000 young women into the Spokane coun try from the eastern states, find em ployment for them, and ajt as general sponsor. When any of the imported young women is convinced that she has found her soul-mate all marriage expenses will be borne by the club, in cluding the license, the minister’s fee, a wedding dinner and flowers. J. C. Power Brown, secretary of the Spokane mining brokers' exchange, is president of the new society. The secretary and treasurer is Wallace A. Mcßurney, vice president and man ager of the Falls City Lumber com pany, and the manager of the societj is Cadwallader Jones, manager of the United States Steel and Equipment company. The membership is drawn from the best circles of Spokane society. As v member must have property of value greater than SI,OOO, they are all eligible young men and entirely liable in case they find their affinity among the importations. Branches are to be instituted in every city and town of more than 500 inhabitants throughout the inland empire. Shortly after the organization of the club President Brown gave out the following statement: “The purpose of the club is to in duce young women to come into this districL There is a scarcity of young women in the northwest, and the in land empire is no exception. I am not overestimating the fact when I say that 5,000 women between the ages of 20 and 30 years could find good hus bands and comfortable homes in Spo kane alone. This may seem an ex travagant statement in a city of nearly 100*000 population, but the fact is that many more men than women have come into the city during the last 18 months. "The first step in the campaign to bring young women Into the country will be to write to our friends and ac quaintances in the old homes in the middle, western, eastern, southern and iS’ew England states and eastern Can ada, urging them to come to the north west, and then prevail upon them to write to their girl acquaintances. In that way a chain system will be es tablished and the problem finally solved. “Any man between the ages of 25 and 40, Industrious and of good char acter, and possessed of at least SI,OOO, or its equivalent in realty. Is eligible to membership in the club.” MAUD HAS HER BUSY DAY. Meek-Eyed Mule Slips on Street and Seeks Revenge with Heels. San Antonio, Tex.—Maud the mule, a lop-eared quadruped who earns her dally alfalfa by hauling a Mexican peddler’s cart, created great excite ment on West Commerce street the other day. Maud was a meek-eyed mule with a look of patient resigna tion In her mournful eyes, but she carried a charge of dynamite in each hind heel. While ambling down the street she slipped on the wet pavement and fell down, tangled in a maze of home-made harness. With great presence of mind she lay quietly until her driver sought to unravel the harness. Then she handed him a left foot Jolt in the short ribs that sent him careening into the gutter. “Johnny Buttinsky,” who is present In every crowd, volunteered to release Maud from her toils. He got a swift kick on his hip pocket which placed him hors de combat, and thereupon he withdrew to tho background. Finally Maud grew tired of her re cumbent position and calmly arose. Shaking her long ears In a coquet tish manner, she meditatively kicked an innocent bystander into the gutter and then went to sleep, while the wounded driver attached the guy ropes to the cart. To Alaska for Leap Year. Freeland, Pa.—P. Jl. Ferry and James Brehm, handsome and athletic young miners of Upper Lehigh, have declared their intention of spending leap year in Alaska, “in order to avoid the Importunities of young ladies who may ask us to wed.” Ferry declared here that he was asked to become the husband of more than 30 girls last leap year, and Brehm had many more offers.

Another Remarkable Cure of Serloue Kidney Trouble. C. L. Wood, a prominent merchant of Fentress, Norfolk Co., Va., was suf- fering some months ago with frequent at tacks of hard pain in the back, kidneys and bladder and the kidney secretions were irregularly scanty or profuse. Medical treatment failed to cure him. “At last,” says Mr. Wood, “I began using Doan's Kidney Pills, and before one box was gone, I went through four days of intense pain, finally passing a Stone, one-half by five-sixteenths of an Inch in diameter. I haven't had a sign of kidney trouble since.” Sold by all dealers, 50 cents a boa. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, N. Y. DEAR LITTLE CHAP.

A Kansas City man, who had fol lowed stock quotations, football scores and race form sheets more closely than he had religious and literary mat ters, recently was persuaded by his wife to read aloud each evening from the Old Testament to improve the knowledge of both on Biblical matters. The man became interested in the story of the scriptures and read aloud several evenings with great gusto and pleasure. One night as he was swing ing along he read: “And they horse whipped the beasts.” “Hold on!" exclaimed his wife. "What was that?” “They horsewhipped the beasts.” he repeated, and continued reading. His wife got up from her sewing, crossed the room, looked over his shoulder and read: “ ‘They worshiped the beasts.' "There,” she said. “I knew the word horsewhipped was not In the Bible. He! He!" The man closed the Bible with a snap, clasped the snap, and that con cluded the readings for all time. FOUND A WAY To Bs Clear of the Coffee Troubles. "Husband and myself both had tho coffee habit and finally his stomach and kidneys got In such a bad condl tion that he was compelled to give up a good position that he had held for years. He was too sick to work. His skin was yellow, and I hardly think there was an organ in his body that was not affected. “I told him I felt sure his sickness was due to coffee and after some dis cussion he decided to give it up. "It was a struggle because of the powerful habit. One day we heard about Postum and concluded to try It. and then it was easy to leave off coffee. "His fearful headaches grew less frequent, his complexion began to clear, kidneys grew better until at last he was a new man altogether, as a result of leaving off coffee and tak ing up Postum. Then I began to drink it, too. “Although I was never as bad off as my husband. I was always very nervous and never at any time very strong, only weighing 95 lbs. before I began to use Postum. Now I weigh 115 lbs. and can do as much work as anyone my size, I think. "Many do not use Postum because they have not taken tho trouble to make It right. I have successfully fooled a great many persons who have drunk it at my table. They would remark, ‘You roust buy a high grade of coffee.’ One young man who clerked in a grocery store was very enthusias tic about my ‘coffee.* When I told him what it was, he said,‘why I've sold Postum for four years but I had no idea it was like this. Think I’ll drink Postum hereafter.’ ” Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich Read "The Road to Well vllle,” in pkgs.
