Mr. and Mrs. Edward Roberta, living nine
miles south of Wymore, on returning from
a shopping expedition to Wymore, found
the dead body of their daughter, Llaxle,
lying In the dooryard about eight feet from
the east aide of the house. The body was
lying 'tace downward, the head rest
ing on the banda snd arms, and
the rest of tbe body rigid, supported by the
toes alone. The body of the dead girl was
removed to the house and a mounted mes
senger dispatched to notify Coroner Walden.
Immediately on receiving weird Dr. Walden,
accompanied by Constable Teary, drove to
the Roberts farm. After a hasty examina
tion Dr. Walden pronounced tbe death to
bo due to poisoning and decided to hold
an Inquest. A search of tbe premises
disclosed a note from the gtrl to ber
parents. Tbe note was lying on a pillow
of the bed in the girl's room and was as
May J4. 1902. This Is to certify that John
C. Helmer is the cause of my deatb and
nobody else. If I die. which I hope I will.
I will be going to my grave with blue and
black .places on ray body caused by him
from beating me. I trust the Almighty
God will serve him as he served me. He
said If I would buy the revolver be would
pull the trigger. LIZZIE ROBERTS.
Testimony at the coroner's Inquest de
veloped the fact that Miss Roberts bad
kept company with Helmer for some time
past and that the two quarreled frequently.
Helmer bad been known to strike the girl.
About three weeks ago they broke their
engagement, and at the time MIbs Roberts
gave Helmer a pitchfork standing near
where they were talking and asked blm
to kill her. He struck ber with the fork
handle. The next day be went to Okla
homa, and brooding over the quarrel so
preyed upon the girl's mind that it culmi
nated in ber suicide Baturday. She tried to
procure a revolver Saturday morning, but
being unable to do ao, ao took a dose of
strychnine from a bottle of the stuff that
was kept in the bouse for killing gophers.
The coroner's Jury returned a verdict
that Miss Roberts' death had resulted from
a dose of poison taken with suicidal Intent.

Too Great a Risk,
In almost every neighborhood someone
has died from an attack of colic or cholera
morbus, often before medicine could be
procured or a physician summoned. A re
liable remedy for these diseases should bs
kept at band. The risk Is too great for
anyone to take. Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy has un
doubtedly saved the lives of more people
and relieved more pain- and suffering than
any other medicine In use.' It can always
be depended upon.

DID NOT KNOW SHE
HAD KIDNEY TROUBLE
i ii i 9
Thousands Have Kidney Trouble and Never
Gertrude Warner Scott Cured by the Great Kidney
DR. KILMER sV CO.. Blnghamton, N. T.
Gentlemen: In the summer of 1893, I
with pain in my stomach and back, so severe that it seemed as If knives were cut
ting me. I was treated by two of the best physicians in tbe country, sad consulted
another. None of them suspected that the cause of my tuuble was kidney disease.
They all told me that I had cancer of tbe stomach, and would die. I grew so weak
that I could not walk any more than a child a month old, and I only weighed sixty
pounds. One day my brother saw in a paper your advertisement of Swamp-Root, the
great kidney remedy. He bought me a bottle at our drug store and I took it. My
family could see a change in me, for the better, so they obtslned mors and I con
tinued the use of Swamp-Root regularly. I was so weak and run down that it took
considerable time to build me up again. I am now well, thanks to Swamp-Root, and
weigh 148 pounds, and am keeping house for my husband and brother, on a farm.
Swamp-Root cured me after the doctors had failed to do me a particle of good.
(Gertrude Warner Scott.)
Women suffer untold misery because ths nature of their disease Is not correctly
understood; In many cases when doctoring, they are led to believe that womb trou
