What would be the easiest method
f paying a man you owed this
amount? Could you gather up a
ten-dollar bill, a Ave, four ones, a
half, a quarter, two dimes and four
toppers? There Is a much better
way for the man with a checking
account. He writes J 19.9 3 on a
blank check, signs his name and
hands It to the other party. Carry
a check book with you always.

other nlc-nacks thought of Will and
how hungry he was, but the distance
was too great for them to be of any
assistance. There were only two
families represented who failed to
come down in automobiles, being
Charles and Joe Cook, and they will
not be allowed to come next year un
less they have the cars.
Those-present to assist In the sur

getting up, I could hardly drag my
self about. In spite of the many
remedies I tried, I found no relief
until finally t began using Doan's
Kidney Pills, procured from Gerlng
