The Bank of burdock
The wise man, and the successful man, invariably is
veiy careful in the selection of his bank and his doctor.
He knows that his life may depend on the judgment and
ability of his doctor. He fully realizes that the life and
success of his business, be it professional, merchandising
or farming, may depend on his banker.
There is no question but that we shall pass through
an adjustment period, bordering on a panic, within the
next few years, present conditions foreshow this, and the
man who has not already tied up with an established, re
liable bank a bank whose officers have successfully with
stood times of stress, may shortly regret his lack of judg
ment. Select a bank that is able to take cere of you in
times of plenty, as well as in times of famine, and you can
then rest easy. Remember the solid, dependable things
of life are not based on promises, but cn deeds. Our past
record is what counts.
We have the above necessary qualities to oiTer our
customers, besides personal services whenever our opinion
is desired on business or personal matters of our friends.
All deposits in this bank is guaranteed by the depos
itors guaranty fund of the State of Nebraska.

Inhaling the fumes of turpentine
and white lead often weakens the
kidneys. That's one reason why so
many painters have bad backs and .
sick kidneys. Exposure, frequent !
colds and chills and the strain of
climbing up and down ladders help
start the trouble.
If your back aches, if sharp pains
strike you in the back when stoop
ing, lifting or working; if you have
headaches, dizziness, rheumatic pains
if the urine is discolored or pass
ages painful and scanty, try Doan's
Kidney Pills, the remedy so widely
used and so well recommended by
men in the painting trade. Here's a
Plattsmouth man's testimony:
M. Lauderback, contractor, paint
er and paper hanger. Locust street,
says: "I had lumbago and kidney
trouble a few years ago. I believe
the turpentine fumes from the paint
is What waij responsible for it. I
could hardly bend over or lift any
thing and I couldn't even turn over
in bed without help. I had no con
trol over my limbs, it seemed and
when I tried to walk, I could not lift
them, just had to scuff them along.
My kidneys acted irregularly; the
secretions were highly colored and
passed with a burning sensation. I
usd Doan's Kidney Pilla and before
finishing the first box which I got at
Fricke & Co's. drug store, I felt bet
ter in every way. I used in all three
or four boxes and they gave me fine
relief. I had another little attack
this spring, but I went to Doan's the
first thing and they straightened me
out again in quick order."
