Aunt Rhinocolura and the Leg
By Ellis Parker Btrticr.
I Avdhor dTPios isPlds" Etci
ILLUSTRATED By PETER NEWELL
Last August A,unt Rhinocolura Betz
met with a serious mishap. She was
going along Main street, which is one
of Betzville's leading thoroughfares,
when Sim Dwiggs' yellow hound dog
went insane with the heat and dashed
into Aunt Rhinocolura and bit her on
the leg. By the greatest good luck
the dog bit her on the wooden leg in
stead of on the other, or Betzville
might soon have had one of the swell
est funerals in its history. As it was,
Aunt Rhinocolura hurried home and
cauterized the wooden leg, and hoped
for the best, but the dog died and its
head was sent to the city, and the re
port came back that the dog had had
the rabies, and that the only way to
save Aunt Rhinocolura's life was for
her to come to the city and take the
Pasteur treatment. Unfortunately this
would have interrupted the garden so
cial that was to be given at Aunt
Rhinocolura's house, but it came out
right enough, for Uncle Ashdod Clute
when consulted, said that as the
wooden leg was not integrally a part
of Aunt Rhinocolura it would not be
necessary for all of Aunt Rhinocolura
to go to the city to take treatment.
He said it would only be necessary to
send the wooden leg. So Aunt Rhi
nocolura did that.
As soon as the leg was an its way
Aunt Rhinocolura called in Bildad
Gubb. who is our leading carpenter
and cabinet maker, and gave him an
the wooden leg. and she couldn't walk
six feet without tripping, and the left
side of her skirt would bell out as if
blown by a breeze, when it was only
crowded out by the sprouts of the
Aunt Rhinocolura said she wouldn't
have minded if the leg had not been
so much work. She said it was pleas
ant to waken in the morning and see
the fresh green leaves at her bed
side, but that when a leg got so that
it had to be pruned every half hour
it had certain inconveniences. It
worried her so much that it brought
on another attack of neuralgia that
kept her in bed a week, and the sight
of the fresh green leg annoyed her so
much that she had Sally set it out on
the second-floor porch. When Aunt
Rhinocolura recovered and went hop
ping but onto the porch to get her leg
she hardly recognized it, it had flour
ished so. It had burst into bloom, as
we might say, and in the tender twigs
a pair of wrens had built a nest and
had set up housekeeping.
Aunt Rhinocolura is one of the kindest-hearted
ladies in Betzville, and
she would never in the world have
thought of tearing down that nest and
destroying the little eggs, but she
couldn't think of any good way in
which she could wear the leg without
disturbing the wrens. It would sound
all right in a work of fiction to say
she put the leg on and that the wren

BACKACHE -A SIGNAL OP DISTRESS
A WARNING THAT MUST NOT BE IGNORED
Pain in the back is the kidneys' signal of distress. If this
timelyLlwarning is ignored kidney disease silently fastens
its deadly grip for kidney sickness first shows itself m
pains and disorders in other parts, and the real cause is too
often hidden until fatal Brighr's disease or diabetes has set
in. Suspect the kidneys if you are rheumatic and nervous
or have lame fcack, painful, too frequent or scanty urination,
weak heart, dizzy spells, headaches, bloating or neuralgia.
What you want is a special kidney medicine not an
experiment, but one that has stood the test for years..
Doan's Kidney Pills relieve weak, congested kidneys cure
backache regulate the urine.
A KIDNEY REMEDY OF 75 YEARS' EXPERIENCE
DOAN'S KIDNEY PILLS began curing lame backs and sick kidneys 75 years ago. The demand
lead a nearby druggist, James Doan, to prepare it for sale. From him the magic formula passed to the pres
ent proprietors. Now, as in those early days, Doaris Kidney Pills are made from only the purest drugs
and are absolutely non-poisonous. The7 are used and praised all over the civilized world.

DOAN'S KIDNEY PILLS MAKE LASTING CURES
J. R. Black, 1005 E. Sixth street. Topeka,
Kansas, says: "In the spring of 1899 Doan's
Kidney Pills brought me such great relief that I
did not hesitate to make the fact known and give
this remedy my nicst earnest endorsement. In
my statement I said that for three years I had
suffered from kidney complaint. I had a dull
grumbling ache across the small of my back that
greatly inconvenienced me when reaching and
straining in doing my work. An annoying kidney
weakness was also in evidence and it was out of
the question for me to sleep well. In the morning
I was all tired out and it can be seen that I was
in bad shape. The use of Doan's Kidney Pills
quickly and surely drove away these symptoms of
kidney complaint and I have since been in good
The foregoing statement was given in March
1905. and when Mr. Black was interviewed on
Nov. 12, 1908. lie said: "I have never had a
return attack of kidney complaint and I know that
my cure is a permanent one. My faith in Doan's
Kidney Pills is stronger than ever.
Mrs. James Crooks, First St., N. '.. American
Fork. Utah. sas, "I had kidney complaint for ten
years or more. Sometimes a twinge darted through
the small of my back and Iofteu became ohelpless
that I was compelled to go to bed with my clothes
on. The attacks often lasted for days at a time
and I could not even stoop to put on mv shot's.
My condition was certainly alarming. 'J in secre
tions from my kidneys were irregular in r-a&agc
and contained a heavy sediment after standing. I
well know what the misery kidney complaint
causes and I cantherefoie appreciate the merits
cf a remedy that cuies this disease Dean's
Kidney Pills live'd up to the claims made for them
in my case and effected a cure. My kidneys were
restored to a normal condition and my health
greatly improved." (Statement fjiven Aug. 22.1907 )
On Aug. 24. 1909. Mrs. Crooks was interviewed
by one of our representatives and she said "It
gives me pleasure to reendorse Doan's Kidney
Pills. They cured my backache and my health
is now good. Other members of my family have
taken this remedy with decided benefit."

order for another leg. She explained
that she wanted one about size eight,
and then she said she would like it
ever-so-inuch if he could make her a
summer weight leg this time. She
said the hickory one she had had was
a good strong limb, but almost too
heavy for summer use, and asked him
if he could not make a lighter one
not too light, just about medium
weight, something she could wear
comfortably until time to put on win
Bildad thought it over and then
said he thought he had a piece of
wood in bis shop that would be the
very thing, and that it would make
a neat and serviceable leg some
thing stylish and light, but still guar
anteed to wear well. He said it was
a piece of willow that he was saving
to turn potato mashers out of on his
lathe, but that he was willing to sac
rifice that aspiration and make a leg
of it. So he did.
When he delivered the leg. Aunt
Rhinocolura retired into her own
room and tried it on, and she was
very much delighted with it. There
were a few alterations necessary, but
not many. It was a little too long In
the waist, if we may use the term,
and made her poke up into the air on
the left side, but Bildad easily reme
died that, and then Aunt Rhinocolura
said It was the most comfortable leg
she had ever worn.
That was a very damp summer, and
a very busy one for Aunt Rhinocolura.
ahe was on her feet in the yard or
the street nearly every minute of the
day, and she never thought of wear
ing a rubber shoe on her willow leg.
In fact, she hardly gave her willow
leg a thought until one night when
she was retiring and happened to
look at the leg. and then she saw
it was breaking out in buds. By
morning it had sprouted so much
that she had to trim it off with her
nail scissors. Every morning after
that she had to manicure her wooden
leg before she could put it on, and
one week when she stayed in bed for
three days with the neuralgia, the leg
got such a start on her that she had
to have Sail-, her maid, take it
down cellar and trim it up with the

to have really started to grow, and

Aunt Rhinocolura went to the sewing
society or trod the light fantastic toe
at Philemon Jones' barn dance, but
the fact is that even a summer
weight woodenv. leg goes thumpty
thump, and that is no good for eggs
that are hatching. A wren may love
its little home in a willow tree, but
it cannot be happy if the tree goes
bumping about the country.
So Aunt Rhinocolura hopped back
into the house and sent for Bildad
Cubb, and ordered a new, light-weight,
non-sproutable leg. Then she had the
willow leg carefully removed to the
back yard and planted there, and it is
growing finely, and is one of the most
interesting sights in Betzville.

Naive Confession of Little Girl Proved
Her to Be True Daughter
Loie Fuller, the noted dancer, told
at a luncheon a story about her class
of dancing children.
"I gave the children a Christmas
party last year," she said, "and when
the pudding came on I said to them:
" 'I have put in this pudding a coin,
a little china doll and a button.. Who
ever gets the coin will be rich.
Whoever gets the doll will be married
before the year is out But whoever
gets the button will be an old maid.'
"Well, the pudding disappeared rap
idly, and the little girls soon found
the coin and the china doll. But the
button did not turn up. No one got
the button. This amazed me.
"That night I said to my favorite
little girl, as we sat alone by the fire
in my room:
"I can't understand what became
of that button. I put it in the pudding
"Til tell you,' the little girl con

your present income would justify you
in taking a wife?"
