A. J. McFarland, 306 Third street,

ago I was doing some heavy lifting
which strained my back and kidneys.
This put me in such bad shape I
had to walk with a cane for a num
ber of weeks and I couldn't straight
en up. I felt as though there was
a heavy weight across my back that
was just holding me down. I could
not sleep nights and it felt as though
I had been struck in the back with
a tdiarp knife. My kidneys acted ir
regularly and the secretions were
highly colored and burned in pas
sage. I was told to try Doan's Kid
ney Pills and after the first box my
condition was much improved. I put
my. cane away and was able to walk
straight. I used four boxes from
Fricke & Co's. drug store and they
made a cure that has lasted ten
years. My back and kidneys have
never bothered me since and I be
lieve Doan's will do the same for
other people if they will give them
a fair trial."

while it was expected by their many
friends was a bit of a suprise, as it

and will engage in farming.
Those present to witness the cere

Fish Will be Scarce
.1. A. Bauer, in expressing bis opin
ion tif fishing prospects this summer,
says he is convinced that the catch
of this season will not be overly
large and will be of inferior quality,
attributing his statement to the fact

dotk while fishirg in the Platte riv
er a few days ago accidently took a
foot bath in the river, and the fish
will all drive to other parts, it being
a good long time before they return.

The Farmers' Grain Prices!
One year with another the farming industry is a
prosperous one. Sometimes the prices go unusually
low, but those times are usually followed by an advent
of higher ones, due to decreased production. The people
must eat, and the era of better prices is ahead. Do not
slackn production, then, but be prepared to share in the
To raise the most from you land and get the best
returns, improved machinery is essential. We are
carrying the best lines and can supply you with what

side to assure a greater demand, and YOU cannot af
