The kidneys nave a great 'worK to
do In keeping tne blood pure. When
they get out of order
It causes backache,
headaches, dizziness

ing urinary troubles.
Keep the kidneys well

fore using Doan's Kidney Pills I suf
fered everything from kidney troubles
for a year and a half. I had pain in
the back and head, and almost contin

the time. A few doses of Doan's Kid

kept on taking them until In a short
time I was cured. I think Doan's Kid
ney Pills are wonderful."

Darky Would Have Had Trouble
Picking It from Sacred Book.
An old darky, anxious to be a min
ister, went to be ordained. He was
questioned thus: "Can you write?"
"No, sah!" "Read?" "No, sah!" How
do you know about the Bible?" "Ma
niece reads it to me!" "Know about
the Ten commandments?" "No, sah!"
"The Twenty-third Psalm?" "Neb
ber heard of him, sah!" "Know the
Beatitudes?" "No, sah!" "Well, what
part of the Bible do you like best?"
'Par'bles, sah!" "Can you give us
one? Deed, yes, sah!" "Let us
have It, then." "Once w'en the queen
of Sheba was gwine down to Jerusa

wouldn't fro her down; and again
doy say unto her, 'Fro down Jezebel!'
but she wouldn't fro her down; and
again dey say unto her for de fird
and last time, for I ain't gwine to ax
yo no mo', 'Fro down Jezebel!' and
dey fro'd her down for 70 times and

Pretty and Novel Affair by No Means
Hard to Make..
So many persons find the light from
a candle or lamp trying on the eyes
that they always insist on shades of
some sort.
A pretty and novel affair for a
candle may be made of strong wire
bent' into a rectangular shape, six
Inches wide at the bottom, with the
inner side 12 inches tall and the
outer seven and one half. This will
give a decided slope to each top.
Make two of these frames and
cover them neatly with silk muslin
of a very thin liberty silk.
This cover may then be painted
or it can be studded in conventional
design in sequins. Tie the backs to
gether with bows of narrow ribbon
for hinges, and around the top and
two shorter sides sew a box-plating
of narrow lace.
The candle is, of course, placed be
tween the two leaves when they are
opened wide. Extreme care must be
taken to observe this precaution, as
a Are might easily result from such
inflammable materials in close proxim
ity to flame.
To Be Dedicated in Buffalo Sept. 5.
Former Residents Invited.
The beautiful white marble shaft
erected by the state of New York in
Niagara Square, Buffalo, N. Y., to the
memory of President McKlnley, is to
be formally dedicated Thursday, Sept.
5, and the event will be the central
feature of Buffalo's Old Home Week,
Sept. 1 to 7. - Former residents of Buf
falo and the public at large are cor
dially Invited to attend the dedication.
Ways by Which Best Results Can Be
White buckskin should be cleaned
with the best pipe clay, which must
be dampened before using.
Patent leather shoes should first be
wiped dry with a soft cloth before
placing them on the shoe tree, then
wiped with a soft cloth dipped in
warm soapy water.
A little vaseline should be applied
from time to time, especially after a
wetting. The shine may be restored
by rubbing with a piece of soft silk
or black velvet.
Leather nowadays Is rendered Inde
pendent of the ill effect of dampness.
Shoes can, therefore, generally be
washed with tepid water when soiled,
a piece of soft linen being dampened
and applied all over the shoe.
The Advantage of Reading.
"Beg pardon, sir," said the weary
hobo as he stood at the farmhouse
door, "but might I sleep in your barn
to-nlisht? I haven't had a roof over
my head for ten days."
"I congratulate you," said the kind
ly farmer. "That is a splendid thing.
I have Just read in one of my ten-cent
magazines that it is not too much to
say that to the delicate, highly-strung,
easily-knocked-up individual the ad
vantages of sleeping in the open air
are enormous. Pallid cheeks take on
fc ruddy hue, colds are unknown,
nerves are forgotten, and irritability
becomes a phase of the past.' A
small plot and a little perseverence
are the only necessaries and the re
sult is assured. You are very wel

Productivity of the Hen.
"How many eggs is a hen wound
up to lay during the term of her nat
ural life, do you suppose?" said the
man who has investigated. "No idea.
eh? Well, sir, a good, healthy hen
not speaking of any particular star
breed, but just hen a good, healthy
hen does not fulfill her destiny until
she has turned out 600 eggs 50
dozen. That's what nature has fitted
up a hen to do in the way of eggs, and
she gives her eight years to do it In.

Spanish Pigs' Feet.
Take eight clean, fresh "trotters;"
cut each into four pieces; then boil
until nearly done. Take the pigs''
feet out and lay to one side. Boil In
the liquid one pint of tomatoes and
one pound of parboiled tripe, cut fine;
one small garlic, mashed fine; six
potatoes sliced diamond shape, half
cupful of rice, half a cupful of Indian
curry. When almost done put the
pigs' feet back, taking care that they
are well covered with the liquid, and
let it all boil until the pigs' feet are
done. Be sure not to let the pigs' feet
fall apart or have the sauce too thin.
This is a favorite Spanish recipe.
Beef Tenderloin and Bananas.
Cut beef tenderloin into pieces, two
and one-half inches thick, broil and
season. Have gravy ready made as
follows: One tablespoonful of butter.
two tablespoonfuls of flour, one cup of
milk, one-half teaspoonful of salt, one-
quarter teaspoonful of pepper, one
heaping tablespoonful of horseradish;
boil and strain. Fry in two table
spoons of olive oil two large firm
bananas cut lengthwise; he careful
not to break. Four one-quarter of a
cup of sherry in and baste over ba
nanas. Place two halves over each
piece of meat on platter and pour
gravy around.

Proper Way to Fold Coat.
A useful thing for wives to know
when they are packing up for the
summer holiday is how to fold
man's coat. There is a knack in it.
that it will aid domestic happiness
for her to master. Lay the coat out
perfectly flat, right side up. Spread
the sleeves out smoothly, then fold
them back to the elbow until the bot
toms of the cuffs are even with the
collar. Fold the revers back, and
double the coat over, folding it on
the center seam. Smooth out all
wrinkles and lay it on a level surface
in the trunk.
Queer Idea of Enjoyment.
Dr. Juliet Severance writes In the
Vegetarian Magazine:
I am often reminded of a clinic
case brought before the class when I
was in medical college in 1S58. The
man had gout and rheumatism, both
the small and large joints being im
movable, and his suffering was severe.
Dr. R. T. Trail, professor of theory and
practice, was explaining to us the im
portance of a very strict and abstemi
ous diet. The poor fellow tried vainly
to turn his head,, and grunted out: 'I
can't go that; I want to enjoy life
while I do live.'"
The extraordinary popularity of fine
white goods this summer makes the
choice of Starch a matter of great im
portance. Defiance Starch, being free
from all injurious chemicals, is the
only one which is safe to use on fine
fabrics. Its great strength as a stiffener
makes half the usual quantity of Starch
necessary, with the result of perfect
finish, equal to that when the goods
were new.

Neiahbor's Comment in Which There
Seems a Strain of Sarcasm.
"Yes," the leader of the. amateur
brass band was saying, "it's curious
to see what an effect learning to
nlav a horn has on some persons. I
used to be a pretty good bass sing
er, but I can't sing worth a cent
"Does learning to play a horn spoil
the voice?" asked his next-door neigh
"It did mine."
"How do you account for it?"
"I don't know how to account for
it. Strains the vocal chords, per
haps. All I know is that I blew my
voice out through the mouthpiece of
my cornet."
"Did you have a good voice?"
"Everybody said so."
"Then it's a great pity you ever
learned to play a horn," rejoined his
neighbor, shaking his head sadly. "I

hearing you sing." Youth's Com

"Cuticura has put a stop to twelve
years of misery I passed with my son.

Under their treatment the disease

it would be cracked, inflamed and bad
