hearty voice. "Not tonight, my lad!
I've been tramping up and down the
valley all day; and I'm too tired to
go trotting about with a great heavy
fellow like you on my back."
Mr. Bear was, so pleaiant that Cuf

father, though good-natured, was
"I'm not going to stir from this
comfortable den," he told his son.
"Then," said Cuffy, "I'll have to
ride at home."
"Oh, hoi" his father lauRhed.
"Who's going to give it to you?"
"You are," Cuffy told him. "You're

"I will," said Mr. Bear with a mer

and Cuffy crawled up on hi father's

"There's plenty of room for two."
.And that was true, because Mr.

said to Silkie.
She never obeyed more quickly.

plump waist or the place where his

"You stop talking!" Cuffy ordered.

Well, they rode perhaps a mile
further (the way Mr. Bear counted)
when Silkie gave a piercing scream.

Mr. Bear was just about to say
the word "pig.". That was his fa

of pork and the words tasted sweet
on his tongue. But this time he

Instead, he let out a terrific roar;

"Now, Ephriam! I'm sure the

said Mrs. Bear soothingly.
"Oh, no! I wouldn't hurt Pa,"
"Nor I!" whispered Silkie.

frowning at his sister.
"I thought I was sticking mine

at her brother.

How can "school spirit" best be
taught to children?
By the parents co-operating with
the school teacher. It is a fact not
sufficiently realized that the chief
reason why there is lets school spirit
among children at the present time
than in the time of their grandpar
ents, and this in spite of the fact
that so much is now done to make
school "pleasant" for children, is that
present-day parents not only co-operate
so little, but have so slight an
acquaintance with the school teachers.

V-ACATION DAYS! Care and worry

happy folks. But to others it means only

Have you thought of your kidneys?
Kidney trouble often comes before the
sufferer realizes what,is wrong. But the
early warnings are all too plain.
You are tired, lame, achy- tortured
with nerve-racking backache ; you have
sharp, knife-like pains at every sudden
move ; daily headaches, too, spells of diz
ziness and annoying kidney irregularities.
Truly the whole world seems wrong
and it is no wonder you feel so gloomy
and utterly worn out.
Cheer up determine to get well!
Usually these troubles are easily corrected
if treated in time. Begin now with Doan's

"Use Doan's," Say These Omaha Folks:
B. LOCH, 1807 C St., says: "I suffered
with lumbago and my kidneys acted irregu
larly. I was annoyed having to, get up often
during the night to pass the kidney secretions
and they contained a reddish sediment. My
back ached continually, and it broke my rest.
Mornings I felt worn ont and miserable. I
saw Doan's Kidney Pills advertised and I was
lead to try them. I bought a couple of boxes
at Gates' Drug Store and after using them
I was rid of the trouble."
MRS. CHAS. APPLETON, 2818 South
17th St., says: "I was quite poorly, owing
to backache and kidney disorder.' I began
using Doan's Kidney Pills and quick relief
followed. They acted as a tonic to my kid
neys, giving them strength and correcting
all the trouble. The successful trial of this
medicine by another member of the family
gives us further proof of its merits, for the
help we have derived from Doan's Kidney
Pills has been of a permanent nature."

What h Reaflly Going On
Anions Omaha Newspapers
THE OMAHA BEE does not believe that the volume
of advertising carried is the best criterion of the
value of the newspaper as an advertising medium. But
much emphasis has been placed on advertising figures
in Omaha newspapers, so The Omaha Bee herewith gives
the story as shown by the July figures.
Gains in Paid Advertising Less Legal
To be absolutely fair to the other papers, and in the interests of
"clean advertising," The Omaha Bee has eliminated entirely from
its figures 2,442 inches of special advertising of the "Prosperity
Number" of July 2. With these figures included, gains are as
follows: The Omaha Bee gain, 32.05; The World-Herald gain,
16.63; The News loss, 3.73.
Omitted by The Omaha Bee, but published by The News,
were 315 inches of oil stock promotion advertising.

Note that The Omaha Bee shows a gain in every depart
ment. The figures show this percentage of gain to be
greater in every department than the same departments
in the World-Herald's figures. The figures for the News
show a loss in every department except classified.
