Peculiar Alter Effects
of Grip His Year
Leaves Kidneys In Weakened Condition
Doctors in all parts of the country have
been kept busy with the epidemic of grip
which has visited so many homes. The
aymptons of grip this year are often verj
distressing and leave the system in a run
down condition, particularly the kidneys
whioh seems to suffer most, as almost
every victim complains of lame back ana
urinary troubles which should not be
neglected, as, these danger signals often
lead to dangerous kidney troubles. Drug
gists report a large sale on Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root whiok so many people say
soon heals and strenthens the kidneys
after an attack of grip. Swamp-Root is
a great kidney, liver and bladder remedy,
and. being an herbal compound, has a
gentle healing effect on the kidneys,
is almost immediately noticed in most
cases by those who try it. Dr. Kilmer
& Co., Binghamton, N. T., offer to send
a sample size bottle of Swamp-Root, on
receipt of ten cents, to every sufferer who
requests it. A trial will convince any one
who may be fn need of it. Regular size
bottle 50cts. and $1.00. For sale at all
drug).i- is. Be sure to mention this paper.

A Pioneer Among Telegraphers
Charles E. Bliss, an old-time telegra
phsr and former postmister at Bingor,
Me., died last week after a brief illne-ts.
He was born in Bradford, Vc, July 22,
1833. Mr. Bliss was one of the first op
erators to rea l by sound. Iu his early
days he was employed in Bot.tou. He
is survived by a son and a daugter, Rev.
Alfred V. Bliss, pastor of Winslow Mass.,
Congregational Church of Taunton, and
Mrs. C. A. Ufford of Dorchester Mass;
Who Shall Begin?
Within the church there is a life
that either repels or draws those who
are outside the church, says the Sun
day School Times. If a church is oc
cupied with controversy, and there is
a spirit of dissension among the mem
bers, one who is outside is not drawn
by this fact to seek fellowship with
that group. Many a church to which
no accession of membership has come
in a long while, may fairly ask Itself
whether the life in that church is hos
pitable to the convert. In one neigh
borhood where church dissension ana
rivalry had worked much harm, a
number of persons who desired to
unite with one or another of the
churches delayed so doing, and one of
them said to a frfend: "We are only
just waiting for some one to begin."
No one seemed eager to be the first
to enter into a local fellowship where
strife was in the atmosphere. Many
a church may have, Just outside its
doors, those who are waiting wait
ing for the church itself to begin to
show that it is a center of the Chris
tian fellowship of love and service.
It is not enough to say that those out
side ought to come in. Those who are
within often need to begin by making
sure that the fellowship of believers '
to which they invite others is a Chris-
tlan fellowship.
Look Higher.
Any outlook on life is likely to prove
disappointing unless it is an upward
one. The student of art or literature,
too easily satisfied with bis own at
tainments because they are not so
Tery far behind those of his compan
ions, needs the warning "Look high
er!" In order that he may rightly
estimate what he has gained, be needs
to adjust his scale of values by com
parison with the work of the great
masters. His models should not be
tbe mediocre but the giants! The
same message comes in those mat
ters that concern the life of the soul.
Even the Christian believes, who haa
much to stimulate and teach him in
the lives of those of his fellows whose
faithfulness and zeal have made them
conspicuous in the history of the
church, must still look higher, not
unto these witnesses, but "unto Jesus,
tae author and nerfector of our faith."
Horse's Endurance.
To test the staying powers of a
thoroughbred horse a New Jersey man
rode an animal from New York to
Chicago. He covered the first 700
miles in less than 12 days of actual
riding. This horse once made the
distance of 78 miles in 24 hours, car
rying a rider over the mountains be
tween Johnstown. Pa., and Pittsburgh.
