Judging from reports from druggists who are constantly in direct touch with the public, there is one preparation that has been very successful in overcoming these conditions. The mild and healing influence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is soon' realized. Tt stands the highest for its remarkable record of success. An examining physician for one of the prominent Life Insurance Companies, in an interview on the subject, made the as tonishing statement that one reason why so many applicants for insurance are re jected is because kidney troubfe is so common to the American people, and the large majority of those whose applications are declined do not even suspect that they have the disease. Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root is on sale at all drug stores in bottles of two sizes, medium and large. However, if you wish fjrst to test this great preparation send ten cents to Dr. Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y., for a sample bottle. When writing be sure and mention this paper. Advertisement.

A country correspondent of an Indi ana weekly newspaper, who disclaimed being either a pessimist or reformer, recently wrote lis follows : "The other day a man and'his daughter from near Danville, Ky., passed through our town on their way to a nearby village. They expected to be met at the train by a relative, but he was late, so they had to wait for him for four or five hours. The daughter was a young woman of seventeen, but still wore her hair in curls. We were especially impressed by the natural girlishness and sweet modesty of the young woman. She was refined, too, both In manners and tlress. Her father apologized for her lmshfiilness. There's nothing -else to say about this little incident excett that it is a rare and beuutiful thing to hear a father apologize for the mod esty of a daughter of seventeen sum mers."
