Cairo People Know How to
Save It.
Many Cairo people take their lives

neys when they know these organs
need help. Sick kidneys are responsl
ble for a vast amount of suffering and
ill health, but there is no need to suf
fer nor to remain in danger when all
diseases and aches anil pains due to
weak kidneys can be quickly and per
manently cured by the use of Doan's
Kidney Pills. Here is a Cairo citi

Cairo, 111., says: "I procured Doan's
Kidney Pills at Sthuh & Son's drug
store a few weeks ago and took them
for un acute attack of kidney trouble
which had annoyed me for some time.
They went right to the seat of my
trouble and thus encouraged. I con

more than satisfactory. Doan's Kid

boat at once. It weighs 24, Sod
pounds, has a six Inch shaft, and 52
inch runner; the pump is rectangular
lined with Vlnch sheet steel and will
stand a great deal more wear than the
old machine. Put the most import
ant point of advantage of this new
machine over the old lies in its ca
pacity which at a very low estimate
is more than double. The old pump

new pump at a low estimate as stated,
will bring in 2.000 cubic yards per day
of 20 hours.
