Clorilla Minch was a most attract ivp j l)!o with fi-ar. and she told Abraham
Atrl in many ways, ami ;iiit' a belle
;f Uetzvilk, and she would have been
married long ago if her lather had had
sense enough to keep still about Clo
rilla's feet, but as soon as Clorilla
v.ould Ret a lover well primed for the
marriage ceremony old Minch would
take him aside and explain about the
Doosenbury feet. He said he had suf
fered all his life by the Doosenbury
feet, and he wasn't going to have an
other human man step up against
those feet unwarned. Clorilla's mother
had been a Doosenbury, and Clorilla
:nherited the feet along that line.
Old Minch would say: "Now, for
orty year 1 have had Maria's feet
against the small of my back every
night, and every night her feet were
like ice, and if I hadn't been a martyr
by nature, and meek and mild, never
would 1 have stood it. And look at
me now. My back bone Is froze solid
ind I can't bend in the middle. Doc
Weaver says it's no use trying to thaw
:t out for Maria freezes it up again
very night. And Clorilla has her
ma"- feet, only colder." Then he
would call attention to Clorilla's feet,
which wcri' actuallv so cold that frost
gathered on the outside of her shoes
so the hottest August weather. In
oo! weather they were ten times cold
er. Generally this frightened the lover
away, but not always.
Abraham Wangle was one it didn't

Wangle that she could never marry
a man with an icy back, and poor Ab
raham had to start in again, training
his back to like heat. He gradually
reduceu the quantity and coldness of
his ice pack, and then began wearing
a small oil stove on the small of his
back, and in a few months he could
lie right down with his back on a hot
stove and never know it. It was just
then that Phillipus Googe forever de
prived himself of all hopes of Clorilla
by sending her a much larger tireless
heater. Clorilla said this was an in
sult, and that she would never use a
tireless cooker again, and to show her
hatred of Phillipus she discontinued
useing the cooker and began resting
her feet for hours at a time on a cake
of Ice. So Abraham Wangle had to
suirt in once more icing his back.
Abraham Iced his back and iced it,
md then he began to be frightened,
or it would not grow cold. It re
gained hot. He went to see Doc
Veaver about it. ,and Doc told him
plainly that the sudden change from
hot to cold and back to hot again had
taken the temper out of the small of
his back, and had rendered it imper
vious to inlluences of temperature,
and that it was like a tireless cooker
now. and would remain hot as long
as it remained at all. So Abraham
spoke to Clorilla, and she did what
was right and began to heat up her
feet again. Hut when she tried it she

BURDENS LIFTED FROM BAD BACKS
Weary is the back that bears the burden of kidney ills. There's no rest nor peace for the man or
woman who has a bad back. The distress begins in early morning. You feel lame and not refreshed.
It's hard to get out of bed. It hurts to stoop to tie your shoes. All day the ache keeps up. Any sudden
movement sends sharp twinges through the back. It is torture to stoop or straighten. At night the suf
ferer retires to toss and twist and groan. Backache is kidney ache a throbbing, dull aching in the kid
neys. Plasters or liniments won't do. You must get at the cause, inside.

convinced of the great value of
Doan's Kidney Pills through per

months ago I suffered a great deal
from a pain across the small of my
back, extending nt times Into mv

stooped or did any work that
brought a strain on the muscles of
my back, my trouble was aggra

short time I could see that they
were benefiting me, and the con

cured me." (Statement given In

very high opinion of Doan's Kid

three years ago they cured me of
kidney trouble that hud clung to

was not helped until I procured
