Whiting , Ind. , Feb. 4. 1901. ( Spe
cial. ) The Presidents of the Ladies or
the Grand Army of the Republ.c have
an association composed
of the Presidents of the different State
Associations. This Presidents' Asso
ciation ohooscs a President , and to this
very high and distinguished position
Mrs. Mary E. Poole of this place has
been elected. Mrs. Poole is thoroughly
deserving of this great honor. Her
devotion to the Interests of the Asso
ciation is very marked , and her experi
ence with' the old soldiers of the ( J. A.
R. is wide. Mrs. Poole Is never sUw
to take advantage of anything that
may benefit the veterans , and her zeal
has resulted in much that is good to
these grand old men. She writes or
her experiences : "Honor to wnom
honor Is due , and having saen the nu
merous cures effected through the use
of Dodd's Kidney Pills , I gladly en
dorse them as being particularly ef
fective to cure that dreaded disease of
so many of our old soldiers , Bright'a
Disease and Kidney Disorders of dif
ferent kinds. Kidney Disease soon
poisons the entire system , and as a re
sult the vital organs are attacked , and
I have found that no remedy so surely ,
completely and quickly finds the weak
spot and heals it as Dodd's Kidney.
"I have used them myself in slight
attacks of biliousness and indigestion ,
and usually find that from three to
four pills do the work. "
Such evidence from a lady of so
much distinction and exper'ence
should convince any sufferer from Kid
ney Trouble that Dodd's Kidney Pills
is the remedy that never fails. 50c a
