G. T. Archer, painter. Locust near
8th street, says: "As a rule all paint
ers are bothered with disordered kid
neys because of the fumes of the
turpentine. This has always affected
my kidneys when I have had inside
work to do more than when outside.
I have had to get tip as often as
every hour of the night to pass the
secretions. Sometimes when going
up or down the ladder I would have
quick stitches take me in, my kidneys
that felt like needles. I have always
found Doan's Kidney Pills a very re
liable medicine for this trouble. A
few always give me good relief and
keep my kidneys in good and active
condition. I wouldn't be without
Doan's for I know what they will do
and have done. I believe such a
remedy as Doan's should be given the
best of praise, knowing as I do from
personal use of them."

Jim McLemon had an experience
in Omaha last week that rivaled his
two years service on the battlefields
of France, in so much as he had not
a fighting chance. He works on the
farm for Harvey Gamer, and took a
week's layoff to take in the sights
of the city. As he was going to his
room in the residence district he was
slugged by a couple of hold-up thugs
and robbed of his money and every
thing of value on his person. His
nose was broken and his lip and
cheek cut open. A pedestrian found
him and notified the police and he
was taken to the station in an un
After his wounds were dressed he
was given a chair to sit in where he
remained until 8 o'clock the follow
ing day. Mr. Gamer was notified and
went after him, and found him' very
weak from loss of blood. He was
brought home and is slowly recover
ing from his injuries.
From the fact that the soldier boy
had been robbed of his moey and
could not secure a bed for the night
it would appear that the Omaha po
lice were almost criminally negli
gent in not providing him with a cot
but compelled him to sit up in a chair
all night long. The only attention
he received was from some of the
trusties at the Jail. Louisville
