THE EIGHT REMEDY AT .
If you are troubled with poor ap
petite, obstinate constipation, in:
quv.nt headaches, restless nights, tor-
nic?:ving, nervousnesr, lack of ercvgy,
etc., take Triner's American Elixir
of Bitter Wine, the best remedy for
all stomach troubles. And if you
suffer from rheumatism, neuralgia,
lumbago, sprains, strains, swellings,
etc.. try at once Triner's Liniment,
the most efficient remedy for all
such pains. You will get Triner's
remedies at all drug stores. Some
postmasters in New York and Pen
nsylvania refused to admit newspa
pers containing advertisements of
Triner's American Elixir of Bitter
Wine to the mail. The solicitor of
'the Post Office Department of Wash
ington, D. C, now declares in his
fetter of September 24, 1917, that
the decision of those postmasters has
ibeen reversed, because the advertise-
jments of Triner's American Elixir of
j Bitter Wine, which is a purely me
dicinal preparation, are held by the
P6st Office Department to be mail
able. The prices were now a little
advanced, owing to the new war tax
jbut every customer will surely fint
u - mevu&uic, Because tne manutac
turer must pay more and the drug
gist also. Jos. Triner, Manufactur
ing Chemist, 1333-1343 S. Ashland

! Chamberlain's Cough ILemedy the
Most Reliable, j
After many years' experience in
the. use of it and other cough mcdi
cines, there are many who prefer
Chamberlain's to any other. Mrs

writes, "Chamberlain's Cough Reme
dy has been used in my mother's
home and mine for years, and wp
always found it a quick cure for
cold3 and bronchia ltroubles. Wc

Potatoes, with an abundant crop, I
dropped 75 per cent, but as to how
the crops of red and green stamps
will be one can only guess. When
it costs more to carry the mail we
will have to pay it. We have be
come so accustomed to cheap pos
tage that we look upon it as a nat
ural right. When we had to meet j
grumbled a little, but paid it just
the same. In the course of a week

crease (which will be all right if we
just don't forget and try to mail a
letter with a two cent stamp on it)
and will be sailing along just as se
renely as if the increase had not
been made. The beit way to do is
to get used to it, and have it out of
the way for the next thing which is
to follow. Any way we want to pay
what a service is worih.

GETS A SHORT FURLOUGH.
From Friday's Daily.
Last evening Carl Du-Ucn dropped
off the Missouri Pacific train, when
it pulled into the station here and
surprised the citizens of Platts
niouth. There were some happy
folks when he had arrived at home,
and we are glad that tln?3- could be
happy. Carl says it is very diffi
cult to get a furlough, about to -use
his expression as to lose a tooth. He
says that all the boys are feeling
fine, with the exception of two boys
who were hurt in foot ball. Albert
J. Godwin, who mention was made
some time since as having one of
his knees injured while playing is
still in the hospital and while the
injured member is not getting any
worse it is not showing the im
provement which is desired. Leo H.
Tighe is al?o in the hospital suffer
ing from a couple of fractured ribs,
which he received while engaged in
a football game. Otherwise the boys
are all feeling well, and are pretty
well contented with their lot. Carl's
leave of absence extends for eight
days, which will enable him to visit
with his many friends here, who are
ail glad to see him, Jnd to know
how the rest of the bo3-s are doing
at Camp Funston.
One That Should Be Heeded by
Frequently the first sign of kid
ney trouble is a slight ache or pain
in the leins. Neglect of this warn
ing makes the way easy for more
serious troubles dropsy, gravel,
Bright's disease. Tis well to pay
attention to the first jsign. Weak
kidneys generally grow weaker and
delay is often dangerous. Residents
of this community place reliance in
Doan's Kidney Pills. This tested
remedy has been used in kidney
trouble over 50 years is recom
mended all over the civilised world.
Read the following, riattsmouth
proof of their merit.
Mrs. J. M. Iliber, 14 03 Vine St.,
Plattsniouth. says: MOnce in awhile
I get a dull ache across my kidnej-s,
but a few doses of Doan's Kidney
Pills soon overcome this trouble. I
couldn't recommend a better medi
cine for backache and anj' other
symptom of kidney complaint. V
Price 60c, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's Kidney Pills the same
