My kidneys acted very freely, at times causing me to get up a great deal during the night. At these times I was so bad I could hardly straighten. I had to walk with the aid of two canes. Not long after I commenced using Doan's Kidney Pills, I was well and I have not needed to take them any more. My kidneys were strengthened and acted regularly again. It has been several years since I have had to use a kidney remedy and I give Doan's the credit for the condition of my kidneys today. I got Doan's at Mauzy's drug store." Price 60o. at all dealers.

Cbc plattsmouth journal PUBLISHED SEMI-WEEKLY AT PLATTSMOUTH, NEBRASKA Kntered at l'osioffico, Plattsinoutli. Neb., as stcond-class mail matter R. A. BATES, Publisher sasss SZoSS To provide facilities to supply the increasing demand for local and long distance service, the Nebraska State Railway Commission lias authorized an issue of $500,000.00 of the common voting stock of the Lincoln Telephone and Telegraph Co. of Lincoln, Nebraska. This slock has paid dividends regularly every three months in January, Ap il, July and October for the past 1 1 years at the rate of 7 Per Annum and is now being offered at its par and regular value of $ 1 00.00 per share in amounts to suit the purchaser, and presents an excellent op portunity for the safe investment of large amounts or small savings, and pays dividends from date of purchase. It is free from normal Federal Income Tax and all Nebraska taxes, as these are paid by the company. The stock issues and expenditures of this company are under th e control of the Nebraska State Railway Commission, assuring fair rates to the public and protection of stockholders interests. The stock may be transferred at any time in whole or part on the books of the company without expense.. Adequate telephone service has become one of the prime and growing necessities of civilization, which fact gives absolute stability to telephone stock, ancf for a regular quarterly income stock in an established telephone company is the most satisfactory investment available. This is an old established company with assets of $9,91 5.000 and furnishes exchange and long distance telephone service to 64,576 sub scribers in 1 1 8 cities and towns in 22 counties of the fertile lands and prosperous communities of southeastern Nebraska. Its territory extends from the Missouri river on the east to the west line of Adams and Webster counties on the west, and from the Platte river on the north to the Kansas state line on the south, having an area of 12,500 square miles, with a population of 415,540 people. Its present revenues amount to over $200,000 per month. It has 1,1)70 employes, and its stockholders and owners are the officers and employes of the company, hundreds of its subscribers and patrons, and many investors outside of Nebraska. The officers and directors of the company are among the most prominent and successful business men of Nebraska, and are the same who are responsible for its continuous growth and prosperity. T,o net per annum, paid quarterly by a check for $1 7.50 for each $1 ,000.00 of stock you own, sent to your address every three months in January, April, July and October, is a good return on such a safe and conservative investment. To secure some of this stock, send your check with your order for the number of shares you desire to purchase, and stock will be sent direct to you, or send the name of your bank to which certificate will be sent, and you can pay for it on receipt. Reservations may be made for stock to be taken up within 60 days. If further information is desired, see Mr. H. R.

Root's "thought does not rcp j resent the youth and vigor of the (party. He1 is not in touch with tha people and is nto in their world. He 'does not represent them and is not in sympathv with them." No inter 'national court is genuine unless the front porch is blown in the bottle. Hut if Root is a heretic, what is , Taft? Many days before the plan for the permanent court was made public the former republican pre? ident rather brutality What is iife worth living? A different answer will be given by every class of individuals. Call the drunkard to the stage and he will tell you that the life worth living is a jag. His dream of bliss is contained ia the sparkling wine and the flowing bowl. Tho gambler wiil tell you that the life worth, living is a jack-pot and the shrewdest guy gets the stake. His life is im the whirl of racing horses, the click of telegraph instruments, tiie mad charge of chance. The politician will tell you that the life worth living is graft. His conception of being is the political caucus. The highest dream he has is the dream of oflice. The sweetest longing of his soul is a yearning for patronage. The hopelessly ricli will tell you that the life worth living is money. The thing that stirs the souls is the jingle of gold. The sparkle of the diamond is the only glitter they can see. and to them commerce is simply a means of increasing their posses sions and civilization but an agent to Lrirg them profit. The debutant wiil tell you that the life worth living is dress and show. Iier dream of bliss is a new bonnet. Her ideal old glory is a stunning gown. Her field, o con quest the ball room. But such do not represent the re alities of life. Tiie mere lapse of years is not life. To eat, to drink, to sleep, to be ex posed to light and darkness, to pace round the mill of habit, and to turn thought into an implement of trade, that is not life. Knowledge, truth, beauty, goodness, faith, these alone can give vitality to the mechanism of existence; these are elements of life. The laughter of mirth that vibrates through the heart; the tear that re freshens the dry waste within: the music that brings ehcildhood back; the prayer that calls the future near; the doubt that makes us meditato; the death that .startles us with its mystery; the hardship that forces us to struggle; the soul that throbs with the immortality; these are things that make life worth living. A man's life is a million times more important than a man's work. Nearly everyone plans how to do his work effectively, but only a few pend time in planning how to live their lives beautifully. Education is good because it enlarges vision, con structs new worlds in which we live, multfplies the possibilities of use fulness and infallibly creates the conditions wherein the joy and sat isfaction which men desire shall be realized. The man who sees only so much electric power in the dew drop and vexes his soul because Ki agria is for the most part unharness ed may get dollars but it is not like ly to get dollars, but is not likely to get vision. After all, visions are worth most. Wealth is a good thing but the man who strives for it alone thinks about it, lives simply to create it is the man who degrades his soul and who puts a barrier in the pathway of his real life. To look upon edu cation as a means simpjy to larger rapacity to achieve and to pay to it the tribute of admiration for this reason, is to be guilty of misplaced emphasis. The intellect is no better than a pick or shovel if it is nothing more than an instrument to produce food to eat, a house in which to live, or bonds to place in a deposit vault. He, therefore who would fill a large place, rejoicing daily in living; who would catch beautiful visions, bear harmonious sounds, come into touch with large thoughts and find him self continually amid a new and more perfect environments must enlarge his soul in the broadening outlook of religion. Yes. life is worth living, but it is right living that makes it so. There is something to do. A world is to be reconstructed. The nations of the earth shattered in their ideals, brok en in th? social and political es tates, with hearts crying out for sym pathy and help, are to be reinstated in the family of . brotherhood. Never before in the history of the world was it so important that this thought should be impressed upon youth. If life today is more strenu ous than it ever was before, it is also fullest of possibilities of the higher sort. :o: Chronic Catarrh do fMs ?
