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

catarrh of the bead, throat and digest

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

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,

and could not enjoy a mouthful of food

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.
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.
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."

near London, and that the Breakers

this magnificent estate has been
closed, and it means a social as well

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.

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
