TIRED BACK3. The kidneys nave a great 'worK to do In keeping tne blood pure. When they get out of order It causes backache, headaches, dizziness languor and distress ing urinary troubles. Keep the kidneys well and all these suffer ings will be saved you. Mrs. S A. Moore, proprietor of a res taurant at Water villa. Mo., says: "Be 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 uous in the loins and felt weary all the time. A few doses of Doan's Kid ney Pills brought great relief, and I kept on taking them until In a short time I was cured. I think Doan's Kid ney Pills are wonderful."

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 lem she fell among thieves. First they passed her by on de oddah side den dey come ovah an' dey say unto her, 'Fro down Jezebel!' but she 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 7, till de remains were 'leven baskets; and I say unto yo', whose wife was she at de resurrection?" Bystander. 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. KEEPING SHOES IN ORDER. Ways by Which Best Results Can Be Obtained. 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 come to the use of my potato patch, and my sky is at your disposal." Judge. 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. Washington Post. 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. She Understood. "What makes you think that Tim- mlns is ideally married?" "Because one day when he invited me to dinner and we were late she merely asked whether the home team won." Serviceable Couch. To a 36-inch-wide bed spring legs Are fastened with bolts. Pieces of 2x4s 12 inches long will do for the legs. I used the lower parts of an old bedstead, says a correspondent. On this spring place a mattress the same size. Cover mattress with a table oilcloth which Is large enough to tack firmly on sides of bed springs. This keeps out the dust. On the back side of the couch drive in a row of nine carriage knobs. For the cover use four and one sixth yards of ingrain carpet Sew it together, making it one and one-half width of the carpet wide. The piecing will not show under the pillows. Fin ish front edge and ends of cover with rug fringe. Face the back edge and in this facing work button holes to button the cover on the carriage knobs. This keeps cover in place. For pillows use stair carpet to match cover. To clean take off cover and shake it and wipe dust from oilcloth.' Our couch like this has been used In an office ten years and still looks like new. Ray Collins, the crack University of Vermont pitcher, is reported to have received an offer of $3,000 for four months' work, from July to October, by a scout of the New York club. This would permit him to complete his col- lege course, but on the advice of friends he turned down the proposi tion. Hannifin continues to play beautiful ball for the Giants.

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. M'KINLEY MONUMENT 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.

Hughes, with his military staff, will take part in the ceremonies and Presi dent Roosevelt and former President Grover Cleveland have been Invited to attend and speak. Military parades will be a feature of the occasion. NO GAIN AND SOME LOSS. 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 now." "Does learning to play a horn spoil the voice?" asked his next-door neigh bor. "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 er think I should have enjoyed hearing you sing." Youth's Com panion. FEARFUL BURNING SORES. Boy In Misery 12 Years Eczema in Rough Scales, Itching and In "". flamed Cured by Cuticura. "Cuticura has put a stop to twelve years of misery I passed with my son. As an Infant I noticed on his body a red spot and treated same with differ ent remedies for about five years, but when the spot began to get larger I put him under the care of doctors, Under their treatment the disease spread to four different parts of his body. During the day it would get rough and form like scales. At night it would be cracked, inflamed and bad ly swollen, with terrible burning and itching. One doctor told me that my son's eczema was incurable, and gave It up. I decided to give Cuticura a trial. When I had used the first box of Cuti cura Ointment there was a great im provement, and by the time I had used the second set of Cuticura Remedies my child was cured. He is now twelve years, old, and hs skin is as fine and -smooth as silk. Michael Steinman, 7 Sumner Avenue, Brooklyn, N. Y., April 16, 1905." For Better or Worse. A census-taker made his rounds in an isolated village. He gave one of his official papers to a woman that she might fill in the required answers. One of the questions, instead of read ing "Married or single," had it "Con dition as to marriage." The woman filled in the answer thus: "Awful hard up before. Wuss after."
