Kidney Pills did
me a great lot of
good, and if it
were not true I
would not recom
mend them. It was
the strain of lift

on kidney trouble
and weakened my
back, but since us
ing Doan's Kidney Pills I have lifted
600 pounds and felt no bad effects. I

What Everybody Says.
Jamboree. Ky., April 3rd. (Spe
cial.) "I suffered for years with my
back," says Mr. J. M. Coleman, a well
known resident of this place. "Then
I used Dodd's Kidney Pills and I have
not felt a pain since. My little girl
complained of her back. She used
about one-half box of Dodd's Kidney
Pills and she is sound and well."
It is thousands of statements like
the above that show Dodd's Kidney
Pills to be the one cure for Backache
or any other symptom of deranged
kidneys. For Backache is simply a
sign that the Kidneys need help.
Dodd's Kidney Pills always cure

minutes later his master chanced tc
pass through the room, and to his sur

RIOT AT WARSAW
SEVERAL OF LATTER WILL DIE
Crowd Carrying Red Flags Attack Pa
trol of Troops and Police. Proclam
ation Distributed Warning People
..Away from Public Buildings.
WARSAW A serious conflict oc
curred at 7:30 o'clock Sunday evening
in Dzika street, where a Jewish so
cialist society known as the Bund had
organized a demonstration. Troops
which came to disperse the gathering
fired into the crowd, killing four per
sons and wounding forty others.
Other disturbnaces are reported to
have occurred. The street had been pa
trolled throughout the day. Conditions
here are causing much easiness and
nervousness. Hand printed proclama
tions have been found in the streets,
warning the public against walking
near public buildings and other places,
as bombs would be thrown in these
quarters. Several parents whose chil
dren are attending school in defiance
of the school strike have been warn
ed bv letter to withdraw their chil
dren, as the school buildings will be
blown up. Representatives of the party
of violence (it is not quite clear
whether they are revolutionaries or so
cialists) are visiting private persons
and levying contributions for "ammu
nition." They produce lists of names
with the amounts to be collected from
each and request the contributor to
sign his name opposite these assess
ments, which range from $2.50 to $3.50.
When Governor Maximovitch arrived
here ten days ago to assume his duties
he ordered that the Cossack detach
ment awaiting him at the station be
retired, saying he did not want an es
cort. Driving through the city today,
however, the governor general's car
riage was surrounded by twenty Cos
sacks. The editors of the Polish newspa
pers were summoned to the castle yes
terday. Governor General Maximovitch
received each of them separately in
the most friendly manner, and talked
with them on various subjects, espec
ially on the question of the censor
ship. He invited them to come to him
in cas'e of any difficulty.
The trouble in Dzika street began
when, under the pretext of holding a
memorial meeting for a late Jewish
socialist leader, a crowd of more than
1,000, mostly Jews, carrying red flags,
marched into Dzika street and was
met by a mixed police and military
patrol of twenty men. The police de
clare the socialists fired revolvers at
them, the leaders inciting the mob to
attack the patrol, which thereupon
fired several volleys into the crowd.
Four men were killed and forty were

NEWSPAPERS ARE NOW QUIET
Believed They Have Been Given a
Tip by Government.
ST. PETERSBURG The- newspa
pers are so significantly silent about
the peace reports from abroad that
it leads to the inference that they
have been warned by the government
of the inadvisability of airing their
views at this time.
These papers which have been fa
voring peace say nothing, while the
small section of the press which has
been insisting on a continuation of
the war contents itself with the repro
duction of articles from foreign news
papers, showing that peace now
means the abandonment forever of
Russia's position on the Pacific.
No Community of lnterer-ts.
HAMBURG At a general meeting
of the Hamburg-American Steam
Packet company. Herr Ballin. director
general of the company, said no plans
existed for the establishment of a

man Lloyd lines.
Girl Gees to Penitentiary.
CHICAGO Inga Hanson, former
Salvation Army girl, convicted of per

from the Chicago City railway for al
leged injuries in a street car accident
by which Miss Hanson claimed to
have been rendered deaf, dumb, blind
and unable to walk. She claimed to
have been suddenly cured by prayer

the Russian position.
It is officially announced that Gen

General Linevitch's chief of staff in
place of General Sakharoff. who has
been transferred to the Alexander

dated March 30, says:
"There is no change in the situa

"Heavy snow fell during the night."
A telegram from Gunsbu Pass says
General Linevitch has forbidden the
inhabitants of Harbin, with the ex

to leave that place without special
permits, fearing that the town may be
denuded of workmen.
GUNSIIU PASS Reconnaissances
disclose especial activity on the part
of the Japanese on the west near the
Mongolian frontier. It is reported
that an anti-foreign propaganda is

and the Tsai Li society, which is
strong in Tsitsihari and northern
Manchuria, are said to be working to
spread this agitation among the Man
churian population and Japanese suc
cess is doing much to augment the
movement. Many Chinese bandit
chief tians are leaders in numerous
secret societies extending throughout
China and their influence may have
a powerful effect on the attitude of
the Chinese government and popula

testimony because of her peculiar
legal status, and she is seeking the
good offices of the state department
to procure from the British govern

TONIC MADE TROUBLE
APPETITE INCREASER DID WORK
Increased Girth of Mr. Bilkins, but
Also Increased Size of Grocery Bills
Gocd Wife Hzd Strenuous Time
During Course of Treatment.
Bilkins had been feeling under the
weather for some time and the doctor
told him he must take a tonic. Bil
kins decided to try it. He rather liked
the idea, as the tonic consisted of
some nice chocolate-coated tablets
with a glass of port wine after each
meal. Bilkins felt the effect almost
immediately. His appetite improved.
It should be stated also that Bilkins
is an economical man. especially with
his wife, whose expenditures for
household purposes he has curbed by
a limited allowance.
Bilkins' appetite and general health
improved, but his disposition became
seriously impaired. He was always
cross when he was hungry, and since
the tonic began to get in its work he
was always hungry. He complained
about the scant supply of food.
"I get just as much as I used to,"
explained his wife timidly.
"Get more, then." growled Bilkins.
She did. and the bills grew apace.
At the end of the half month Bilkins
curled his eyebrows and roared.
"Vour grocery and meat bills have
been running $0 a week larger than
usual," he complained. "This isn't
economy. You'll ruin me."
"Yon said to get more," his wife
Bilkins grov.iV but he kept on tak
ing the tonic. His friends compli
mented him on getting stout, and Bil
kins smiled. This, however, was when
he talked with his friends. Between
him and his wife the situation was
getting a trifle strained.
Finally affairs got to a climax. They
had English mutton chops that night,
and there were five on the chop plate.
Usually there were only three, but
liilkins thought these were rather
small for English mutton chops. He
helped his wife to one and proceeded
to dispose of three. He stripped the
bones and then looked hungrily at the
"Won't you have this one. my
dear?" he said, with a polite growl
that seemed to court refusal.
"No." sniffed Mrs. Bilkins. "Maybe
the girl wants it, though."
"Let her rustle something else."
snarled Bilkins. "If you didn't mar
ket on such a slim scale we would
have enough to go around. I'll take
this myself. I don't see why we can't
have enough to eat in this house."
Then Mrs. Bilkins was seized with
a violent attack of sniffling.
"I can't tell what to do." she sobbed.
"You complain of the bills, and yet
you eat so much that what I get isn't
enough. I have been half starved for
two weeks. I never saw anyone with
such an abnormal appetite. We'll just
have to go back to boarding."
A great light dawned on Bilkins.
"It's all on account of that con
founded tonic," he blared graciously.
"I'll stop it."
He did, and now peace reigns in the
Bilkins family. Mrs. Bilkins says a
tonic is good ground for divorce.
New men who join the force of of
ficial reporters in the House have a
hard time of it until they get familiar

EFFECTS OF PROSPERITY.
In tho. six years of the country's
greatest prosiierity, from 1S97 to llo::,
average prices of breadstuffs advanced
C5 per cent., meats 23.1 per cent, dairy
and garden products 50.1 per cent,
and clothing 24.1. All these were prod
ucts of the farmer and stockman who
profited more than any other class of
the community by these advances.
The miner benefited 411.1 per cent by
that advance in the average price of
metals. The only decrease in the
average prices of commodities in that
period was in railway Ireight rates
which decreased from .7JS per ton
mile in 1S17 to .":: in lOOS. a loss
of 4.4 per cent. The report of the In
terstate Commerce Commission shows
that the average increase in the pay
of railroad employes in the period was
