MRS. DE PASSE
OF NEW YORK CITY I Consulied'Several Physicians, but they Did Me No Good. Pe-ru-na and Man-a-lin Helped Me." i .... 1 4M MRS. ALINE De PASSE. Mrs. Aline DePasse, 770 E. 165th St., New York, N. Y., writes: "It gives me pleasure to testify to the curative qualities of Poruña aud Mana lin. "I was aCQicted for over seven years with catarrh of the bead, throat and digest ive organs. I consulted many physicians, but they did me no good. "One day I happened to read some tes timonials in your Peruna almanac. 1 decided to try Peruna and Manalin. I bought a bottle of each, and after taking them for a week I noticed a change for the better. Bo I kept it up, and after using twelve bottles l was perfectly cured. "I also gave the medicine to my chil dren and they had the same beneficial result. I would never be without these remedies in the house. "I highly recommend Peruna atd Manalin to all my friends, and in fact to everybody." Miss Mildred Grey, 110 Weimar St, Appleton, Wis., writes: "It gives me pleasure to recommend Peruna for catarrh of the stomach. , 1 had this disease for a number of years, and could not enjoy a mouthful of food that I ate. It was indeed a great relie! when I hit upon Peruna, and obtained decided results from the first. I took sis bottles before I felt eutirely cured of mj trouble, but I had an aggravated case." Pure White Lead is the Natural Paint Pigment Numerous compounds are being offered to take the place of white lead as a paint, but no real substitute for it has yet been found. Pure White Lead has a' peculiar property of amalgamating with the wood upon which it is used added to this it has an elasticity which permits the paint to follow the natural expansion and contraction of the wood. Pure White Lead (with its full natural te nacity and elasticity, unimpaired by adulterants), alone fulfills all the re quirements of the ideal paint. Every keg which bears the Dutch Boy trade mark is positively guaranteed to be ab solutely Pure White Lead made by the Old Dutch Process. SEND FOR BOOK All Uod packed fa txa bean thtt mark.

BEST FIELD FOR THEIR WORK Their Efforts Should Be Put Forth to Keep the Dollars In the Horns Town Protecting Busi ness Interests. During the past few years there has been more than ordinary activity In the organization of so-called commer cial clubs, business men's leagues and similar associations in the agricultural sections of the country. Some had mushroom growth, and like some flow ers, bloomed and blossomed, withered and decayed in an hour. Others strug gled along indifferently and succeeded in spending much of the people's money without assisting the town to greatness, while a very few succeeded in doing things that were of benefit to the community. There Is little use In trying to make a suit of clothes for a man out of a pattern of cloth that has only suffi cient goods for a child's suit. There is little use in trying to build up a great town In a locality where there is not the material to sustain it, and where there are only resources for the support of a hamlet Towns of Im portance exist only where there are certain natural advantages, resources that can be utilized In manufacturing, territory sufficiently large to command extensive trade, or some other favor able condition. In the west manufac turing must by the economy of things be confined to such lines as can be advantageously produced. In manufac turing there are many factors. There must be considered the cost of fuel, the raw material, the labor and highly Important are the transportation facil ities. One of the noticeable things about commercial clubs is the optimistic tendencies of their members. Business men of a strictly agricultural town will form an association. Perhaps the leaders are interested in the real es tate business. They want the town to boom. Some of them may have a few acres of land worthless unless for a "factory" site. Meetings are held, plans are made for the bringing in of some manufacturing plant that per haps may 'give employment to half a dozen or a dozen hands. Correspond' ence Í3 started with a view of getting some outsider interested. The right man, apparently, makes his appear ance. He wants a bonus of a few thousand dollars. His proposition is seriously considered. The subscription paper is passed around, the amount secured, and the real estate man sells his "factory" site at a good price. The factory Is started. It runs about a year and there i3 a vacant factory building for rent, or for sale. How many towns in the southwest have had this experience? Even had the enterprise been a sue cess, it remains that there is a field more productive of good for the town that the "club" overlooked. Say that a factory be started in a small town. It may give employment to a dozen men, The pay roll amonts to $30 a day. The output of the concern may reach a total of from $25,000 to $35,000 a year. "Every little helps," and all other things in harmony this adds to the Importance of the place. But let us do a little "estimating." Suppose that there is about the town a territory of 150 square miles. Suppose that each square mile represents four families farmers' families. This would make 600 families who should do their trad ing in the town. The reports of the bureau of statistics of the United States department of labor and com merce, assures us that the average ex penditure of the farmer each year for all the supplies he requires in the way of agricultural machinery, carriages, wagons, clothing, and food, is $627. Careful estimates of the amount of the: farmers' trade that goes to tho mall- order house and Is in other ways di verted from his home town, shows that It is more than 25 per cent, of all he spends. Thus we find that from the territory of the town there is annually diverted in trade the nice sum of more than $79,000. This amount goes from the town, ceases to be a factor In its upbuilding. If means that every day the town loses about $132 in trade. Now would it not be much better if the commercial club took up the mat ter of devising means of protecting the business interests of the enterprises in the mercantile lines already estab lished, than to bring in a new enter prise of uncertain success? It is evident that there Is a wide field for commercial club effort in the keeping in the town the dollars that are earned and devising means of pro tecting trade. UNITY OF INTERESTS. Relationship of Residents of Rural Communities to the Home Town. "Live and let live," is a policy that has come down through the ages and is an expression of the Golden Rule only in different words. There is in born in man a desire for self-preservation. It is a law of life, and to thi3 desire can be attributed that which is considered selfishness within us. Sav age man has little regard for the rights and properties of others. He lacks the sense of equity and justice and Is guided solely by the brutal in stincts. Intelligent man realizes that all his fellow creatures are entitled to the same rights he would enjoy himself. Therefore where the Chris tian spirit is found, there can be look ed for such equity as gives all an equal chance to gain a livelihood and to enjoy the products of their labor. There should be the greatest har mony among the citizens of every community. The Interest of all the classes comprising a city or a district should be considered Identical, It has been noted that the most prosperous towns have been built up by har monious and united effort of all the people composing it. In these days Wien there are evils to combat, when oppressive trusts exist that are fac tors in unequal distribution of wealth, it is all Important that the masses in each and every community unite and work in harmony for the protection and betterment of local conditions. It it to be regretted that in many agri cultural communities there is a lack of harmony between what is called the business interests and the produc ers of crops. Different reasons may be advanced for this condition, but the most common cause is a misunder standing on the part of the citizens as to the relationhip that should ex ist between them. It is wrong for the teachings that go forth that the farmers' interests are different from those of the merchant, or that the merchants' interests differ from farmers' of the community. It: is also an erroneous Idea that the town is alone for the townspeople and the country districts for the farm er. Is it not true that the merchant; is dependent upon the farmer for hia support? And it is equally true that; the town is an important thing to the, farmer. It is a convenience to him and he Is as deeply interested in all that pertains to it, to its advancement and the betterment of its public insti tutions, its streets, its parks and all,1 as are the people who reside within the town. The merchants should real-' Ize how important the farmer is to them, and the farmer should be brought to a realization that the town is for him as well as for those who re side within its limits, and, that the less antagonism between the resi dents on the farms and the residents of the town the better it will be for the whole community. There is a unity of Interests that cannot be ignored, and there is a common field herein all can work for mutual benefit. TWO TERRIBLE YEARS. GET-RICH-QUICK GAMES. Government Investigating the Opera tors of Bucket Shops That Do Business Through the Malls. In times of prosperity there are al ways chances for the grafter. During the past ten years has been the era of the get-rich-quick man. No sooner docs one scheme play out than an other takes its place. Thanks to the ever diligent postal inspectors, and an unrelenting government, the schemers are not so plentiful as a few years ago. For some years a number of supposed legitimate grain and stock brokers thrived in both eastern and western cities. These were active in soliciting through the mails, and through local offices the business of small Investors. The millions of money gained from the unsuspecting people will never be known. In New York, Chicago, St. Louis and other cities large and ex pensively conducted offices were main tained. Once the government got on the right trail, there were irregulari ties discovered that resultecHn fraud orders being Issued against a number uojule rains 21 as. of the concerns. The end Is not yet, and the work of extermination will be kept up till there is none in operation. Buying stocks in a fair market is a risky business, but when there are schemers to stack the cards against the investor, there is not a ghost of a show. Many a bank clerk and busi ness man can trace his downfall to speculating in the bucket shops. Trade Is the life of the agricultural town. Any system that diverts this trade is injurious U the community.; Here lies the evils of the mail order system. By drawing the trade from the towns, the principal support goes, and with Its going disappears the em ployment for the people, the school system, and the churches and all the advantages that the town affords to the people of the community. Not alone this but home markets are de stroyed and the farmer finds the value of his land reduced. Have the impor tance of home trading and home sup port instilled into the minds of the farmers in 'general, and there will be a rapid falling oft of the Catalogue house patronage. Tht Untold Agonies of Neglected Kid ney Troubles. Mrs. James French, 65 Weir Street, Taunton, Mass., says: "When I began using Doan's Kid ney Pills I was so run down and mis erable that I could hardly endure it. Terrible pains in the back attacked me frequently and the kidney secre tions were much disordered. I Vas a nervous wreck and there seemed no hope. Doan's Kid ney Pills brought my first relief and six boxes have so thoroughly cured and regulated my kidneys that there has been no return of my old trouble."

Word comes from abroad that Mrs. Vandrbilt is to take a large estate near London, and that the Breakers will not be open this season in New port This will be the second summer that this magnificent estate has been closed, and it means a social as well as financial loss to the place. To the gossips of the smart set it means that something attractive is keeping Mrs. Vanderbllt and her daughter on the other side of the At lantic something that draws like a lodestone. No longer is Robert Goelet's name heard in connection with the hand of Miss Vanderbllt, and we are at our wit's end to know Just who the lucky Johnny is. New York American. New in Wall Paper. A new design in fancy wall paper patterns comes from Kansas City; also a way to utilize cancelled checks. A firm has had all its offices papered with old checks, placed neatly edge to edge. The face figures of the checks vary from $30,000 to $1,000, and the total for one room is $8,000, 000. As a gilt moulding run3 around the edges of each check-panel, the general effect is rather pleasing. Buildings for Canal Workers. The federal government has put up four buildings on the canal zone and put them in charge of the Young Men's .Christian association. They will be used as men's clubs for the workmen on the Panama canal. Four other similar buildings are to go up in the near future. SICK HEADACHE Positively cured by these Little Pills.

The Public Printing Evil. Washington. There are stored in the basement of the capítol, in the old government printing office, in the Baltby building, in the old car barns and in two rented warehouses more than 9,500 tons of documents and re portsenough to fill freight train more than three miles long, according to Victor L. Rickett, secretary of the printing investigation commission ap pointed two "years ago. In addition to its own storage capacity, the govern ment Is paying $18,500 a year In rent als. A large proportion of these docu ments are obsolete. The joint committee on printing cut off this year nearly a million volumes of the congressional printing alone, and in this the committee only touched the waste which was piling up in the warehouses to rot. It cost the govern ment millions of dollars for labor and material to no useful purpose. New York World. Denver Directory Vnnilft D1DDOTC NOW IN. All other kinds ol lUUnU rAnnUlO birds sml gold fish.
