If You Need a Medicine
You Should Have the Best
Have you eve? stopped to reason why
it is that bo many products that are ex
tensively advertised, all at once drop out
of eight and arc soon forgotten? The
reason is plain the article did not fulfill
the promises of tho manufacturer. This
applies more particularly to a medicine.
A medicinal preparation that has real
curative value almost Bells itself, as like
an endless chain system the remedy is
recommended by those who have been
benefited, to those who are in need of it.
A prominent druggist says "Take for
example Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, a
preparation I have sold for many years
and never hesitate to recommend, for in
almost every case it shows excellent re
sults, as many of my customers testify.
No other kidney remedy has so large a
According to sworn statements and
verified testimony of thousands who have
used the preparation, the success of Dr.
Kilmer's Sw np-Root is due to the fact,
so many people claim, that it fulfills al
most every wish in overcoming kidney,
liver and bladder ailments; corrects uri
nary troubles and neutralizes the uric
acid which causes rheumatism.

Swamp-Root by Parcels Post. Address

(Prepared by the National Oeocraphla So

Afghanistan, long almost a synonym
for fanntlcnl Isolation from the rest of
the world, Is at last apparently show
ing a desire to enter the family of
nutlons. The Moslem kingdom, which
even now continues Its old policy of
excluslveness pending tho outcome of
Its negotiations, recently sent u dele-,
gntlon of nobles to Washington to pe
tition the United States for the es
tablishment of diplomatic relations be
tween the two countries.
Afghanistan's excluslveness is not
accidental. Situated between the
southern-growing empire of Russia and
northern-spreading British India, It
hns been the typical buffer state; Its
natural excluslveness, duo to religious
fanntlclsm, has been nccentunted by
the political rivalries of Its great
Forbidden Lhasa Itself Is no more

Kabul, the capital of this Isolate, un
friendly realm of fanatic tribes, of
rocks, deserts, Irrigated vnlleys and
towering unsurveyed ranges.
Not a single railway or telegraph
line has been permitted to cross this
hermit country or to run Into It, lest
the pernicious ways of tho world leub
In. And the six or seven million people
have been hardly on speaking terms
with any other nation.
Few Foreigners Permitted to Enter.
Night and day, from stono watch
towers and hidden nooks along the an
cient caravan trails that lead In from
India, from Persia and Russia trails
used long ago by Alexander and Jen
ghlz Khan squads of bearded, tur
bnned Afghans, with Imported field
glasses and long rllles, have kept
watch against trespassers from with
out. Only a few Europeans, mostly Brit
ish hut occasionally also an Ameri
can and now and then a few Russians
or (Jermans, have been permitted to
enter tills country and to sojourn for
a while In Its curious capital. But even
on such rare occasions ao when a for
eign engineer, or a doctor whoso serv
ices are badly ueeded, is admitted by
the grace of the amir, the visitor Is
subject to a surveillance that amounts
almost to imprisonment. "Splendid
Isolation" Is a sort of Afghan tradition,
a conviction that the coming of the
foreigner will mean the end of the
amir and of his unique, absolute rule.
As It Is, no other monarch now

Though the nmlr took no active part
In the World wnr, he emerged from It
with singular profits. His old and
once rival neighbors, Grent Britain and
Russia, drawn together as allies In tho
conflict, left him a free hand. In 1010
Grent Britain officially recognized tho
political Independence of this much
buffeted buffer state, to whose rulers
she had so long paid a fat annuity.
Keeps In Touch With the World.
Afghanistan, with an area of 245,000
square miles, Is, next to Tibet, the
largest country In the world that Is
practically closed to the citizens of
other nations. But political life at
wary, alert Mohammedan Kabul Is In
sharp contrast to the meditative seclu
sion and classic aloofness of the Bud
dhist lamas at Lhasa. Through agents
In India and elsewhere Amir Amanul
Inh Khan Is In close touch with the

last remaining Independent ruler of a
Moslem country, now that the power
of the Turkish caliph at Constant!'

tug Influence throughout the Moham
medan world. And It Is probably that
because his land happens to He Just
as It does on the map of tho world, he
wjll be for a long time to como an
active force In the political destinies
of middle Asia.
The amir's word, his veriest whim,
Is law to his millions of subjects. He
Is, In truth, the last of the despots, a
sort of modern oriental patriarch on
a grand scale. His Judgments are, of
course, based primarily on the Koran,
or on the common lnw of the land.
There Is no statute book, no penal
code and no court.
The amir reserves to himself tho
right of passing death sentences. The
cruel Afghan forms of punishment,
such as shooting a prisoner from tho
cannon's muzzle, sabering off his head,
stoning him to death, burying him
alive, cutting oft his hands and feet
or putting out his eyes, are seldom em
ployed nowadays; yet often the crlml
mil himself will choose n quick, though
violent, exodus to paradise rather than
suffer long Imprisonment In n filthy
Iron cage, perhaps to die eventually
The way of the transgressor In Af
ghanistan continues to be uncommonly
hurd, howeier. Time and again, In
the recorded history of this Innd, de
posed amirs, troublesomo relutlves and
political enemies have been deliber
ately blinded, there being n tradition
here that no man with any physical
affliction may hold u public office of
honor or profit.
Its Mountains and Tribes.
Politically, Afghanistan Is divided
Into four provinces: Afghan Turke
stan, Kabul, Kaudahar and Herat.
Topographically Its most conspicuous
features are the high peaks In the
northeast; where It touches the great
Hindu Kush, the Tlrach Mir attains a
height of over 23,000 feet.
Through these mountains of north
east Afghanistan wind some of tho
most picturesque and historic trolls of
the whole world. For centuries tho
trade between Turkestan and India
has flowed over these high passes,
and the story goes that often these
annual caravans number as many as
120,000 loaded animals, Including cam
els, mules and horses.
Afghanistan is a Babel of races and
tongues ; more than half Its population
are not Afghans at all. The majority
group embraces the Iranian-Aryan
Tadjiks, who inhabit the settlements
and large towns; the Mongolian Hazn
runs, who room the mountnlnoua con
trnl regions of the country, and the
Turkomans and Uzbegs of northern
Afghanistan. Tho real Afghans, or
"Pahtos" (I'nthans), as they call them
selves, live In the high ranges stretch
Ing from the Sollmans past Ghaznl and
Kandahar to tho west, toward Herat.
Tho tribes nre divided Into minor
clans, called "khel," and they live a!
most entirely off their herds of cattle,
camels and sheep.
Persian culture has molded the so
cial life In Afghanistan through cen
turles; notwithstanding the religious
hatred between the Sunnls and the
Shins. Persian customs havo been more
or less adopted In the upper rank
of all middle Asiatic Moslem society
From the Pcrslnns the Afghans got th
Idea of marrying more than one wife
but, like the Persians, too, they have
found to their dismay that polygamy
Is nowadays a most expensive custom

assassinated In 1010) had n harem of
