McFarland, 306 3rd street, Plattsmouth. says: "Several years ago I was doing some heavy lifting which strained my back and kidneys. This put me in such shape I had to 'walk with a cane for a number of weeks and I couldn't straighten. It felt as though there was a heavy weight across my back that was just , holding me down. I couldn't sleep j nights and it felt as though I had ! been stuck in the back with a sharp knife. My kidneys acted irregularly and the secretions were highly color ed and burned in passage. I was told to try Doan's Kidney 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 believe Doan's will do the same for other people if they will give them a fair trial." 60c, at all dealers. Foster-MIlburn Co., Mfrs..

Herman Dall's Business Burned The blacksmith shop, plumbing es tablishment and implement house of Herman Dall was burned about the noon hour last Saturday when the exhaust from the engine charging the battery of cells, which he had for lighting his place of business and which he has for sale. Mr. Dall had gone to his dinner and left the plant charging, which is the way which this is done, and having left a can of gas setting on the floor near, in some way the exhaust throwing a spark occasionally had ignited the gas, and the building was consumed. The fire was but small when Mr. Dall returned from his dinner and he rushed into the place to see if he could not extinguish, when he ob served that the can containing the gas was just igniting, and rushed away only in time to escape the swish of the gas as it came from the can. When the alarm was given every both men and women rushed to the scene to render what assistance they could, but however heroic they work ed, they could not save the place, though the other buildings were none allowed, to burn by the hard "work of the citizens. Mr. Dall surely ap preciated the work of the people. He is not as yet certain whether he will build or purchase a place for his business. - BUILDING IS BURNED The huilding at Murdock occu pied by Herman Dall with his stock of implements, gasoline engines and machinery supplies, was destroyed by fire the last of the week and the loss to the owner will reach a very stiff figure. The building was only partially covered by insurance while the loss to the stock will be fairly well protected by the insurance. Mr. Dall had been running his lighting plant to generate Juice for the batteries and had left for dinner leaving the engine running as it was of the kind that automatically stops when sufficient current has been generated. Attached to the engine was an exhaust pipe and this be come quite heated and set fire to a part of the wood work that had gasoline spilled on it and thus the building was soon In flames and by the time the owner arrived It waa impossible to check the blaze. People who have been helped by Tanlac are always anxious and will ing, to tell others about it. F. G. Fricke & Co. E. H. Schulhof, piano tuner. 1 Pbone 389-J. d&W. Why Mr. N. Windsor (R. I.)
