DR. KILMER CO., Blnghamton, N. T.:
GENTLEMEN": My trouble began with pain In my stomach and back, so severe
that It seemed as If knives wers cutting me. I wss treated by two of the best physi-
! clans in the country and conaulted another. None of them suspected that the cause of
! my trouble was kidney dlsesse. They all told me that 1 had cancer of the stomach
i snd would die. I grew so weak that I could not walk any more than a child a month
old, and I only weighed ninety pounds. One day tnr brother saw In a psper your ad
vertisement of Swamp-Root, the great kidney remsfty. He bought me a bottle at our
drug store and I took It. My family could see a change In me for the better, so they
obtained more and I continued the use of Swamp- Hoot regularly. I was so weak
and run down that It took considerable time to build me up again. I am row well,
thanks to Swamp-Root, and weigh 148 pounds and am keeping house for my husband
and brother. Swamp-Root cured me after the doctors had failed to do me a particle
of good.

Riley, who each offered taore than ho did,
re still at work. Hurd baa a gang of nine

tween here and Omaha, and will complete
the survey before letting up. He says ho
la not a promoter, but an expert engineer,
who was sent here tp look over the route
and report as to tbe possibilities for profit

ties, and apprehends that a company will
be formed ia a few days. He also haa In
structions to survey a route between here
and Beatrice, and predicts that within three
j ears there will be a series of elect rie rail
ways connecting the various citiea In south
eastern Nebraska,
Mr. Hurd says tbe third rail and dot the

be erected here and one between this city

they can get one from the people of Lin
coln when the project Is ripe.
Mr. Riley, the other disappointed pro
moter, says that h!a aarvty between Lin
coln and Omaba Is almost completed. He
proposes going ahead whether Mr. Kenyan
wins out with the mayor or not. If the

Part of Political Game.
Chairman Lindsay of the republican state
committee la Just now the center of a
violent attack, based upon the charge that
the W. H. Thompson passes, cartooned In
a portion of the republican press during
tho recent campaign, were forgeries. An
effort Is being made, prompted, his friends
ssy. by D. E. Thompson, to hsve the cen
tral committee called together and hla
resignation demanded because of thla fact.
Lindsay's friends esy that the whole mat
ter has its origin In an earnest desire on
the part of Mr. Thompson snd G. W. Hold
rege to force Senator Dietrich to spree to
the reappointment of W. S. Summera its
United States district attorney, and that
the whole row Is being kicked up for the
purpoie of discrediting the present chair
man and destroying his chance of succeed
ing Summers. Senstor Dietrich has prom
ised hla auppcrt to Lindsay and repeatedly
said that be proposed to stsnd by him till
the end. Mr. Thompson snd Mr. Holdrege
had an exciting Interview with Dietrich
the other day and told him he must agree
to support Summers. He Is quoted as
having emphatically declined and that very
nearly a rupture occurred between him and
his sponsor, Mr. Thompson. Summers Is
understood here to have secured Senator
Millard's endorsement, and now only wails
upon the getting of Dietrich Into line.
