Many I'lattsmoutb people take their

weak kidneys can be quickly and per
manently cured by the use of Doan's
Mrs. M. E. Hartman, living at 103
Rock street, Dattsmouth, says: "My
father was greatly benefited by the

the back owing to kidney trouble
caused him considerable suffering and
particularly so when on his feet. Learn
ing about Doan's Kidney Pills, I pro
cured a box for him at Gering & Co.'s
drug store. He used them as directed
and the pain was relieved, his back

was noticeable improvement in his
general health. It is needless to say
that the results which he obtained
gave him cause to value Doan's Kid

PROF. ROUSE GOES TO PERU
He Resignes the Position as Superintend
ent of the Plattsmouth Schools.
There was a meeting of the board
of education this morning at which
the following was presented an acted
PLATTSMOUTn, Neb., June 10, 1907.
Board of Education, Gentlemen:
I am offered the chair of elementary
education in the Peru Normal school.
I desire to accept as soon as released.
I therefore tender my resignation to
take effect at the end of the school
year, July 1, 1907. I thank you for
all the kindness you have shown me,
and for the most candid support you
have given me- Yours Truly,
E. L. Eousk.
The board accepted with much sor
row the resignation. All tbe friends
of Professor Rouse will be glad to
know that he has a better position
than the one which he occupied here,
but their joy will be mingled with
sorrow, to lose him as an instructor in
the high school here.
We consider that the schools here
have never had a better or more com
petent instructor, than has been prov
en by experience, and the successful
way i n wh ich the schools have been con
ducted, than is found in the departing
superintendent of the city schools.
Mr. Rouse came here four years ago,
and the circle of his friends have
growh wider and wider as he has be
come known, and his ability acknow
ledged. He has ever been a presist
ent worker in the school room and on
the lecture platform, during whatever
vacation there was. Not alone in the
school room has he been a help to these
under his instruction, for his every
day life has been help to those
with whom he has mingled. In the
Sunday school and church he has ex
erted a very protent influence for
good, as superintendent of the Christ
ian Sunday school he will be missed
for be has been an earnest, intelligent
As a superintendent and an organ

Every Man His Own Doctor.
The average man cannot afford to
employ a physician for every slight
ailment or injury that may occur in
his family, nor can be afford to neg
lect them, as so slight an injury as the
scratch of a pin has been known to
cause the loss of a limb. Hence every
man must from necessity be his own
doctor for this class of ailments. Suc
cess often depends upon prompt treat

suitable medicines are kept at hand.
