"I havo great  news for  yon, Mary
Captain Conway bus been here."
"Captain ConwayV Ves! And what
did he want, mother! What news did
he bring?"
Mary Hamilton took off her black
straw hat as she spoke und pushed tbe
hair away [rom her forehead with a
weary gesture. Mrs. Hamilton bnsied
herself with the simple tea table, assiduously arranging plates, setting tbe ten-
spoons straight in the saucers, laying
the butter knife at an exact angle and
smoothing away an infinitesimal crease
in tlie white cloth. _.
"He—he—he made a suggestion to
nie. Mary," she began nervously.
"A suggestion I" Mary Hamilton sat
down and eyed her mother expectantly.
"You don't mean that he proposed to
you. mother!" she exclaimed.
"Something very like it," replied
Mrs. Hamilton, still keeping herself
very busy with the table.
For n moment there was silence between them Mary Hamilton sat looking with astonishment at her mother,
und at last she spoke.
"1 suppose it wouldn't be a bad
thing in the mere way of money, mother. " she said slowly. "But—but—oh,
mother, dear, you could never bring
yourself to do it!"
For the first time Mrs. Hamilton
turned aud looked straight at her
daughter     "My  dear  child."  she ex-
" Von cnn'l menn that ynu would like mt
to marry Captain Conwayl"
claimed, "yon don't understand!
There is no question of my marrying
Captain Conway. It is—at least ho
never—besides, my devotion to yonr
poor father's memory should have kept
you from jumping to any such conclusion. Captain Conway is n good man.
nnd nny woman might be honored in
marrying him. But my heart is in the
grave, and—and. besides, he did not
propose—he does not propose that I
should consider the question of becoming his wife."
Mary Hamilton stared open eyed at
her mother "Dear mother. " she said
gently. "I nm tired tonight. The children were very troublesome today, and
the rooms seemed more stuffy than
usual. I feel confused. Do tell me just
what Captain Conway did suggest to
Mrs. Hamilton began to pour out the
tea with a vehemence which showed
how perturbed in mind she was. "Your
poor father always said that I was injudicious in telling news." she cried
in honest self abasement. "I ought to
have seen that you were tired.. Here is
your tea. darling. Drink it at once and
bave another cup to go on with. The
trnth is. Mary, Captain Conway has
flurried me till I hardly know whether
I am standing on my head or my heels,
and—and 1 never gave a thought to
your being tired out with that hateful
echool. Oh. to think that my daughter
should ever had been a board school
mistress, not one remove from a national school, and your father a clergyman in holy orders I'
"My dear mother, do explain your-
eelf. " said Mary, a fearful sense of coming evil gradually overspreading her.
"Oh. my darling." cried the older
woman, "it's all over now—all the
drudgery, all the pinching antl the nipping! I've said little or nothing because
yon were slaving your youth away in
that horrid, degrading school, but now
1 may speak, now 1 may say how bitterly and cruelly 1 have felt it all. the
humiliations, the—the" —
"Dear, there can be no degradation
or humiliation in honest work." said
Mury patiently and yet with a dignity
which sat becomingly on her tired
young face "And what do you mean
by its being overY Not surely that Captain Conway wants to marry me."
"Yes, yon'. And. oh. my darling, it
has made me so happy, ' Mrs Hf.mil-
ton cried, "almost delirious with happiness!''
"My dear mother." cried Mary, bolting a piece of hrtad and butter with
what was almost a convulsion, "yon
can t mean that yon wonld like mo *o
marry Captain Conway!'
"Why uot V asked the mother blankly
"I conldn t tin iti" declared the girl
"Couldn't do It I"    Mrs   Hamilton's
voice rose almost tn it scream   "Couldn't
do it!   Why. dc: r  heaven, surely you
would never drt'ii   . nf flying in the face
of Providence by i fusing him!"
"Certainly I wniltl!"
"He is rich!'  cried Mrs  Hamilton.
"He is old ennii-h to be my father,'
said Mary    "And I doubt if he is rich.'
'•Captain of onenf the largest steamships afloat, " protested Mrs.  Hamilton.
"He is  exceedingly well off.    He  can
provide for yon adequately.   He has an
excellent position" —
"I di.n't—couldn't—never could love
himl" Mary burst out.
"Perhaps not: but yon can respect
him I" cried the mother.
"I don't know that I should even do
that much," Mary returned. Then she
suddenly clasped her hands together nnd
looked nppeulingly at the excited woman opposite to her. "Oh. mother! Don't
ynu understand why I cannot do this
thing i Have you been so unhappy in
our little home that you want to sell
me to the first bidderV I've been so
contented in working for you Has il
all been for nothing'/"
""Working for me!" -Mrs. Hamilton
exclaimed indignantly. "Working for
me. indeed! And what have I done all
these years? Look ut my hands, worked to the bone, cooking, scrubbing.
sewing, contriving, making my own
bits of clothes and never a place to
show them in in this desolate wilderness of bricks and mortar! No oue to
associate with, living a pensioner on
yonr bounty, without pleasures, interests or change of any kindl And Hun
to have your work thrown in my teeth.
indeed I"
"Oh. mother!"
"It's all very well to say, "Oh, mother!' But I'm speaking the truth. All
these years I havo struggled and striven
for you. And now, when you have a
chance of letting me end my days in
peace, yon turn up your nose at a man
whom any woman might be honored by
marrying- "
"You married for love yourself.'
said Mary in a very low voice.
Mrs. Hamilton caught up the words
and echoed them in the high pitched,
querulous accents of a thoroughly selfish
aud superficial person. "Married for
love," she echoed shrilly. "Yes. and
what did love ever do for me? 1 married for love, married on £80 a year,
drudged on it, slaved, toiled, almost
starved on it. Don't talk to ine aboul
marrying for love, Mary—love in a cottage is a will-o'-the-wisp that lends
many people astray, and your poor father and I were among the number
Was it natural, right, proper, that he
should die at 8S, a wornout, prematurely old man, leaving me helpless,
homeless, penniless, to struggle on ub
best I could, to drag you up as best I
could? That was what marrying for
love did for him, poor fellow! He never
would own it. He died with hishand in
mine—his last words 'The Lord will
provide'—and now when provision bas
come it is only to be rejected."
Mary Hamilton sat still while this
inconsequent torrent i4 recollection and
vexation poured from her mother's lips
At tlie vision of the red faced, burly,
bluff sailor being regarded as a provision
sent by the Lord to take her from an
independent life of honest work to one
of degrading idleness, she almost laughed aloud, but she resolutely choked
down the inclination and spoke quietly
and reasonably to the excited woman
on the other side of the table.
"Dear mother," she said gently,
"cannot you for my sake endure this
life a little longer'.' After midsummer
we shall be better off. Even now we
can well afford to have a woman in to
do the rougher work—it has always
been for yon to decide how the money
shall be spent.   For my sake, dear'/"
"And why not for mine?" asked the
mother fiercely. "Listen I He has laid
ull his plans before me. Yon will have
a charming house and garden, a couple
of good maidservants, a handsome
housekeeping purse, an ample allowance
for your dress aud pocket money. There
will always be room for me—I am to
live with you—to give the benefit of
my advice, my experience in housekeeping and all such things Yon will
have as much society as yon care to
take—there will be no anxiety, no
thinking about the rent or how to get
seven days' dinners out of a certain
sum.   You will have''—
"Oh. don't, mother; please don't!'
the girl cried. "I know all these things
are a temptation to you, poor dear It
must be to you just like opening a
prison door and seeing a lovely view
over which you may walk forever on
one condition But the condition, dear
mother, the condition I Think-! It is
that.of reaching the fair pathways over
your own child's body. Oh. worse,
worse—over her very soul I It means
the sacrifice of all that is best iu your
child's life—the giving up of ber freedom, her honor, her ambition, of all her
better self. Don't ask me to do it. dear.
Pray, pray don't. I will work—oh, how
I willworkl How thankfully and gratefully I will bring you every farthing
that I make, so that yon may be more
content, less straitened. Mother, dear,
speak for me I For my father's sake, say
that you won't urge this upon me."
But the words of appeal, glowing.
passionate, haartfnl as thoy were,
failed to touch the shallow nature of
the woman who in her day had married
for love nnd had found the dinner of
herbs turn to dust nnd ashes between
her teeth. She rested her head dejectedly upon her hand and gave several long
drawn sighs of misery, calculated to
move tbe heart of a stone.
"Dear mother I' murmured Mary
from tne other side of the table
But Mrs Hamilton shook her head
resolutely "No. Mary, it's uonseynui
saving 'Dear mother!    lis worth ncth
.ng: It means nothing.   I can't make
you marry Captain Conway; ind ■ d,
I've no wish to do so. I can't make you
see what is best i'or yon, although you
might trust your own mother to give
yon gootl advice on such a subject. I
can do nothing but bear my disappointment with resignation and fortitude.
After all. it is only one more titter pill
to swallow. o"ue more drop of bitterness
in my cup of humiliation and self sacrifice. I'll say nothing more, Mary, only
—only—don't prate to me about love
and devotion. I've proved the value of
both today. And, after irtl my struggle*
to give you the best of education, it's
hard, it's heartbreaking."
A sudden thought flashed across Mary
Hamilton's mind of certain clerical
charities which had from the time of
her father's death provided her mother
with the wherewithal of living, of the
great institution wherein she had received her education free of cost to her
mother and because of the position in
life which her father had occupied, but
she said nothing; she felt that it would
be useless.
"So my dream ends," said Mrs.
Hamilton bitterly. "Jt says somewhere
in the Bible, 'Her children shall rise up
and call her blessed.' It's a fallacy,
nowadays at least; for veneration for
parents has gone cut of fashion. "
Mary Hamilton sat back in her chair
wondering whether it would be best to
let the storm pass in silence or not.
Mrs. Hamilton got up from her place
and went blindly toward the door. I
say blindly In cause she went stumbling-
ly and groped her way like a person
whose eyes were full of tears. There
were, however, no tears in her eyes,
but a strange sightlessness, as if she
had suddenly walked into a heavy sea
fog. Then at the door she stumbled and
fell, not the sharp fall of a person tripping by accident, but the huddled up
dropping to the ground of one unable
any longer to keep lur feet.
Mary sprang from her seat with a
cry. "Mother—mother—you are illI"
she burst out.
The answer came thick and indistinct. "Dying, dying! You have—killed—me I"
The girl tried to lift the prostrate
woman, but found herself powerless.
She sank upon her iuees in an agony
of apprehension.
"No—no—mother; don't say that!
Let me help you—only try to get npl
I'll do anything to please you—mother
—mother I"
When Mary Hamilton found that Tier
mother had slipped into utter unconsciousness, she ran to their nearest
neighbors and begged them to come in
and aid her. So her mother was with
no little difficulty lifted from the ground
aud carried up to her bedroom, and a
doctor was quickly sent 'fof. His fiat
was given without the smallest hesitation. "It's a stroke," bo said, "but it
might have been much worse; for instance, if it had been on the other side
it would probably have proved fatal almost immediately. As it is, with care,
your mother will probably recover aud
be quite or very nearly herself again. "
With care I Mary Hamilton's heart
went down to zero as she heard the two
little simple words which give hope to
some anxious watchers of the sick, but
which open out endless possibilities of
unattainable needs to those who are
poorly plaeed in the world. In her case
it meant having an experienced person
to tend ber mother by day and night
alike, for, be the circumstances cf life
what they would, her work must go on
just the same. Witli the best intentions
in the world she could not be in two
places at once. Yet, how was she to afford skilled attendance for her mother?
It was a terrible question to answer.
At this point the advantages of the
alliance which the sick woman hael been
pressing upon her daughter came prominently into view. During the course of
the evening Captain Conway arrived,
eager and anxious as to his answer,
only to be met with the mournful news
that Mrs. Hamilton had been seized
with a paralytic stroke and was still
unconscious. His first words were a
suggestion.   "Yon will want a nurse.'
"I shall want some one to lock after
my  mother while  1  am  away at iny
friends are allowed to make themselves
useful to one another in times of trouble all the world over. I'll take it all
on myself und will account to yonr
mother for the liberty I'm taking when
she's well enough to discuss snch
things. So now I'll be off and will send
in a suitable nurse at once. Goodby!
Good bless yon, my dear I"
He roughly pressed her hand nnd was
gone in a moment, leaving her standing looking desolately after him. She
shuddered as she thought of him us her
possible, nay probable, husband; he wns
so bluff and burly and grizzled, so loud
of voice, so red cf face, so dominant.
He jarred upon every liber of her being.
But it was useless to fight longer against
fate, even in the person of a man who
wis utterly and entirely distasteful to
her. She bad struggled with all her
might against the sacrifice of her soul's
best instincts, but to no purpose. The
threads were drawing closer and closer
around her, and if her mother recovered
and still demanded the complete sacrifice of herself against which she had so
passionately fought she had given Ler
word and must carry it through to the
very end.
Before a couple of hours had gone by
a white capped nurse in dainty uniform
had arrived at the little house and had
installed herself in charge of the case,
and when Mary got home from her work
the following afternoon Mrs. Hamilton
had recovered her senses again and was
pronounced to be vastly improved.
Her first mumbled words were as a
deathknell to Mary's heart. "You—
promised," she said thickly.
"Yes. yes; I have not forgotten,"
Mary said hurriedly. "Don't think of
that, dear; only get well and I will do
anything yon like."
The sick woman gave a murmur of
satisfaction and closed her eyes again.
Mary turned away and went to the
window, where she stood looking out
trying to keep herself under control.
Her face was white and eet, her hands
shaking nnd cold. So her mother had
not forgotten; the sacrifice would have
to be made and she must ut no distant
time sell herself into a slavery which
wonld be a living horror. Aud this was
the end of all her toil, of all her ambitions, of all her brilliant hopes and
vivid dreamings! Small wonder that
her heart seemed as if it had turned to
water within her; that her soul seemed
numb and dead, as if she had lost herself
in a deep and treacherous morass from
which she could never he extricated, try
and struggle as she would.
I need not dwell upou this part of
Mary Hamilton's story. The hot and
dusty summer days dragged drearily by.
each one bringing tho inevitable nearer
.■ind nearer. Mrs. Hamilton slowly improved in health. Mary went to antl fro
to her work, the white capped nurse remained in attendance, and Captain
Conway hovered around the little household like a good angel, an angel with a
red, weather beaten face and with a
very large circumference.
Tlie end came all too soon. He spoke
to her one evening, told her his hopes
and fears—a great many hopes it must
be owned and a very few fears it must
be confessed. And Mary told him honestly that she had never thought of him
before her mother's illness us tt possible
husband, told him slit- had never thought
cf marrying him or any one else, thanked him. with tears in her gray eyes, for
his goodness to her mother and promised that if he would not expect too much
of her she would do her best to bu a
good and faithful wife to him.
Captain Conway's answer was characteristic of the man. He told her with
all the assurance and confidence of an
Adonis 'JO years his junior that he
was perfectly satisfied with her promises; that he would teach her to love
him when once she was really his own.
Mary shuddered, but allowed the remark to pass in silence, and. if tbe
whole truth be told, let au inward
prayer escape her heart that some thunderbolt might fall and strike her before
that terrible day dawned.
Such prayers, however, are mostly
futile. Mary's wed,ling day dawned all
too soon, and the warning, "Be not
afraid with any amazement," rang out
over the heads of an ashen pale bride,
who had steadfastly and resolutely refused to allow herself to be decked in
bridal attiresa rather nervous and rubicund bridegroom, who dropped tlio ring
aud mumbled his vows defiantly after
the officiating minister; a mahogany
faced groomsman and a frail, elderly
lady in a mauve silk who leaned upon
the arm of a tall young woman in
nurse's uniform.
So the sacrifice was completed I To
Mary Hamilton. Mary Conway by then,
it passed like a hideous dream, ouly
there was no awakening.
"My darling child I" cried her mother enthusiastically "I am so happy I
My dear child I"
"I am glntl, mother," Mary whispered buck and wondered the while if liod
would ever forgive her for the false
vows she had plighted, the outrage she
had done to herself, for being the living
lie that she waa

Mrs..Robinson  has kindly promised to

"I will send in a proper nurse at

rough but kindly accents. "Skilled

us these. I never did believe in uiuke-
shift nursing. It's the very—tlie very

On one occasion a little, drummer
boy, securing leave of absence, accompanied a sergeant to a public levee that
"Old Abe" was holding at tbo White
Flouse. They went early, and when
Tresident Lincoln appenrcd nnd the
handshaking began they were not long
In reaching him.
The tall man, almost a giant In physical proportions, looked down with an
amused smile at the tluy drummer boy,
who appeared baldly 10 years of age.
Grasping the litlle fellow's right band,
the president suddenly reached out hiB
left, swung the boy off bis feet nnd
set blm gently down on a small table
beside him.
"Aha, my litlle soldier," he said,
laughing, "you shall help 'Uncle Abe'
review this Hue today, and If your superior officer objects, why, I'll prolong
your leave of absence!"
Lincoln nsked the boy his age, place
cf residence, regiment nnd where be
was on duty. Then, as some of the
more Important officers of the army or
navy, members of congress or of the
executive departments chanced to pass
In the Hue, the president would gravely
introduce his young assistant, with
whom they were required to shake
hands ns well as with himself.
When the reception was over, President Lincoln took the boy Into his private apartments and Introduced him to
Mrs. Lincoln. After entertaining him
at luncheon he dismissed him with a
brief note to the commanding officer of
the hospital where he wus then stationed telling why ihe boy's leave of
absence had been extended.
Lincoln's geniality and willingness at.
all times to hear or to tell a good story
were conspicuous traits, not always
agreeable to some of his able but worried and Irritable advisers.
On one occasion a sergeant bad a
squad of men at work unloading supplies from an Ohio river steamboat
that lu some mysterious manner had
mnde Its wny from the interior to the
coast waters of Virginia. It was a flat
bottomed boat, drawing not more than
three feet of water wheu loaded and
hardly dampening Its plank bottom
when light. It was propelled by a
horizontal stern wheel, driven by a
small upright engine. Boats of that
type were common ou the Ohio, which
runs almost dry at some seasons. They
were known as "t'ittsbiirgei's" and
were fabled to navigate freely lu a
heavy dew.
The sergeant's men were hard at
work carrying rations ashore from this
craft when suddenly they stopped and
sent up a lusty cheer. A little tuglike
steamer had pulled up alongside, and
from it stepped a tall, awkward man
dressed in rusty black antl wearing a
napless silk hat. The sergeant recognized tlie president aud sainted.
"Your boat is well named, sergeant."
said the latter gravely.
Tbe soldier was puzzled. He did not
know that the steamer hail a name aud
said so.
The president took lilm by the arm
and led him back on the tug. There
the stern of lhe "Pittsburger" loomed
above them, and on Its dirty white surface In tarnished gilt letters a yard
long appeared the single word. Mist.
"Yes," said Lincoln, "it's very well
named Indeed, sergeant. All those
boats need Is a mist, uud they'll run
"Years ago." he continued. "I was attending court in Cairo. Ills., when lhe
Ohio was so low that all the water
there was between Its banks was what
bad spilled over from the Mississippi.
Those i'lltsburgers' were passing aud
repassing all the time. One night there
came up a little shower that raised the
level maybe a half Inch. One of 'em
got out of the channel, slid ashore
and grounded in the mud right beside
the courthouse.
"It was there the next morning, and
1 remarked to a brother attorney that
that boat was aground to stay. Ue
was   from   'Egypt'   and   kuew   more
about Tittsburgcrs' than I did. He
merely smiled aud said, 'You wait aud
"There came on another shower that
afternoon. I heard an engine puffing
mid looked out of the courthouse window. Maybe you'll think I'm exaggerating, but there was that boat steaming tlown the road toward the river,
nud In two minutes she was back In
the Ohio, just as the shower was over.
"I expressed my surprise to the
Judge, but he said that was nothing.
If the shower hadn't come up In time,
the captain would simply have hired a
boy with a sprinkling pot to go ahead.
They're great boats, sergeant. Likely
as uot tbis one got here by coming
across country."
President Lincoln repeated tbis extravagant story without the ghost of a
smile. During Its recital Secretary
Stanton and Generals Halleck aud
Sherman—the last named having run
up the day before from his march
through the Caroliuas—who were with
the party, had approached the president. General Sherman smiled broadly,
but Stanton looked annoyed. The president caught his glance antl. with a
wink at the others, said, "But maybe
you've heard this before, Stanton."
"Very likely I have," the secretary
grimly responded, "but I would suggest. Mr. President, that General Grant
is awaiting us."
The gleam of amusement left the
kindly man's eyes. He gravely turned
antl shook hands with the sergeant and
then strode alter bis coilipiliil«w as
they made their wny ashore. Hue L,

"There is generally a history behind
nicknames," remarked a rounder nt one
of the hotels recently, "and you will generally find that the name is either commemorative of some event or it is descriptive of some striking peculiarity. I
have been very much amused at the
names worn by many negroes. 'Snow-

names that are equally striking. 'Big

Why Beauty Fades *
and Sufferings Gome.
Real beauty is rare. It belongs to perfect health. Just
as soon as tlie blood gets thin and watery and the nerves become exhausted beauty fades, wrinkles show themselves, the
beautiful curves give way to lameness and angles. Nervousness quickly destroys beauty of face and form. The female
organism becomes deranged and there are sufferings almost
unbearable at the monthiy periods. Too often women come
to believe these mysterious pains and aches a part of their ex-
istense. They fail to realize that by keeping the blood and
nerves in perfect health they can preserve youth and beauty
and avoid an end-less amount of suffering.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, the great blood builder and
nerve restorative, is woman's Greatest blessing from youth to
old age. It helps her over the trying periods of her life and
prepares the system in every way to perform naturally the duties of womanhood. It enriches the blood supply, keeps the
nerves calm and steady and assists in the development of glowing, healthful beauty. A few weeks' treatment with this great
Food cure will do wonders for every woman who is pale, thin,
weak and nervous.

and said to the man who waa wrestling
with an old bureau:
"You must he rushed with business
during tbe daytime to move out at this
"No, no great rush," was tbe reply.
It's simply on account of my feelings for

"He wanted the house nt once, eh?"
"Oh, no. You see it was this way. He

Among the much respected residents of Orangeville is Mrs. Marshall, who lives in a pretty little
cottage ou First street. For some
years her twelve-vear-old daughter,
Mamie, has been a sufferer from rheumatism combined with that other
terrible allliction—St. Vitus' dance.
In conversation lecently with a reporter of the Sun, Mrs. Marshall told
the following story of lu;i daughter's
suffering anil subsequent restoration
to health :—"At -he ago of eight,"
says Mr. . Marshall, "Mamlw was attacked with rheumatism, from which
she suffered very much, anu ul though
she was treated Dy a clever doctor
her health tlid not Improve. To make
her condition worse, she wits attacked with St. Vitus' dance, ana I really
gave iij' hope of ever seeing her enjoy good health again. Her arms
and limbs would twitch and jerk-
spasmodically and she could scarcely hold a dish in her hand, and had
to be looked after almost like an infant. While Mamie was in this condition tt neighbor who had used Ur.
Williams' Pink Fills with beneficial
results in her o-*u family advised rr~
to try them in Mamie's case 1 hail
myself often heard these pills highly
spoken of, but it had not occurred to
me before that they might cure my
little girl, but now I decided to give
them to her. Before she had completed the second box I LOtild see a
marked change for the better, ami by
the time she had .aken fibe boxes she
trace uf both the rheumatism and St.
Vitus' dance had vanished, and she
is now as bright, active and healthy
as ant child of l.er age. Some time
has elapsed since she discontinued the
use of thi pills, but not the slightest,
trace of the trouble has since made
itself manifest. I think, therefore,
that I am safe in saying that I believe It. Wilfiams' Fink Fills not
only restored my child to health, but
have worked a permanent cure."
Rheumatism, St. Vitus' dance and
all kindred diseases of ti, blood and
nerves speedily yield to Ur. Williams'
Pink Filis and Iho cures thus effected ar i permanent, because this medicine makes rich, red blood strengthens the nerves, and thus reaches the
root o' the trouble These pills are

Bright'* Disease Nut So Frequent of
l.o'e Years—DoJd's Kidney Pills
Undoubtedly the Cause—Diabetes
Also Far Less Prevalent.
Matane, Que, .Inly 8-—(Special)—
Xot only in this neighborhood tun
throughout the Province of Quebec
there is a marked decrease noticeable
in the number of cases of Bright's
Disease reported. This fact is undoubtedly due to the wide use of
Dodd's Kidney rills in the earlier
stapes  of Kidney Disease.
Iln; Ill s disease at one time was
tlie cause of a large proportion of
(lie ileiiths in tills province. It wns
considered incurable and until Dodd's
Kidney. Pills were introduced in was
incurable. Xot so. however, now.
Dodd's Kidney Pills have almost
wiped thc disease out. Nor is Diabetes heard of now to any groat extent .
The most common form by which
Kidney Disease manifests itself is
Backache, nntl here Dodd's Kidney
Pills nre doing their most, active
work. They are recognized as the
surest and quickest cure for Rack-
ache ever invented. They work on
the sound principle of going to the
runt oi' the troubli—the kidnej —
wherein they differ from all other
backache medicines except Imitations
ni I'.mIiI's Kidney Pills. Thoy do
more than merely relieve. They positively nnd permanently cure, as
thousands of people are ready to testify.
i). DIonne, n well-known resilient
of Matane, says. "Dodd's Kidney
I'iils have made n grand success in
curing me of Backache, .nul 1 recommend everybodj to keep them in the
house. They are a won-der as a remedy for Backache and Disease of the
