The rest is going to be new. And
I'll bet they'll be just as snappy as
the otters. And it only costs 35 and

For weak or disordered kidneys.
Here is Plattsmouth evidence to
prove their worth.
Mrs. F. N. Rauen, of 1109 Pearl

Pills can't be beat as a kidney rem
edy for any kind of kidney ailments.
I was in bad shape with my back and
was laid up so that I had to have hot
poultices put on my back and sides
to relieve the pain. I could hardly
turn in bed and was sore through my
back. I had awful dizzy spells and
little specks came before my eyes
and many times I had to sit down
and wait for these attacks to pass
off. A while after I commenced to
use Doan's Kidney Pills and I began
to improve. I got several boxes from
Weyrich & Hadraba's drug store and
they gave me permanent relief after
other kidney remedies had failed. I
always keep Doan's on hand and use
them when my kidneys need atten

"Wylie James Colbert was born In
Winside, Nebraska, June 16, 1899,
and died July 6, 1922, aged 23 years
and 20 days. His parents moved to
Cass county when he was but a few
years old, and he attended the pub
lic schools of this county, taking one
year in the Weeping Water academy.
He united with the Congregational
church of Weeping Water when he
was 14 years old. About this time
his parents moved to Wauneta, Ne
braska, where he finished high
school. He enlisted in the U. S. army
when 18 years of age, was in the
service 18 months in the 33rd Baloon
On May 30, 1920, he was united
In marriage to Grace Marie Perkins,
of Bethany, Nebraska. One babe,
Evelyn, came to bless this union.
Upon his removal to Wauneta he
united with the Methodist church,
of which he was a very active mem
ber. Last January the family moved
to Bethany, where at the time of
his death, the young man was em

One Dollar Saved Bepresents Ten J
The average man does not save to
exceed ten per' cent of his earnings. !
He must spend nine dollars In living '
expenses for every dollar saved. That
beig the case he cannot be too care-'
ful about unnecessary expenses. Very
often a few cents properly invested,
like buying seeds for his garden, will ,
save several dollars outlay later on. i
It is the same in buying Chamber-;
Iain's Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy, i
It costs but a few cents, and a bottle :
of it in the house often saves a doc
tor's bill of several dollars. Weyrich
