Doan's Kidney Pills Cure Omaha Bad Backs
Testimony of Omaha People Proves Their Merit
A bad back Is a back that eches after
every little exertion. Pick kidneys cause
that kind of a weak back, and a kidney
bad back will never be strong and sound
until the kidneys are cured!
Backache Is really kldrieyache the aching
cf overworked. Inflamed, congested kidneys.
It comes right In the small of the back,
where the kidneys are located. Sometimes
the ache Is heavy and dull. Again It
changes to sharp, darting pains, like the
thrusts of a knife. It seems Impossible to
stoop or lift, or bend the back. AH night
the aching keeps up, leaving the sufferer
tired and lame In the morning.
Backache Is a warning that should be
heeded. It calls attention to the fact that
the kidneys are giving out, that diabetes,
dropsy and Bright Disease are threat
ened. Don't . wait. Help, the kidneys at
once. Cure them with Doan's Kidney Pills,
the great American kidney specific. It is
the one remedy that is recommended by
residents of your own city.
Wm. Cooper, No. 518 South 17th
St., employed at the Waterloo Cream
ery, says: "In February, 1899, I was
taken with a severe case of the grip
and it left me with a lame and aching
back especially bad mornings, when
I could scarcely drag myself about,
and it was a hard task to set dressed.
My work requires, me to stand in wet
places at times and this had a tend
ency to make my back worse. Seeing
Doan's Kidney Pills advertised, I. pro
cured them at Kuhn & Co.'s drug
store. They completely cured me and
did It quickly."
If you wish to try Doan's Kidney Pills
free of expense, write to Foster-Mllburn
Co., Buffalo, N. T., for a trial box.

on Behalf of Consumers' League
in Its Fight on the

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Oct. 6. (Special.) Even the
unnual election of officers which took place
this morning failed to disturb the harmony
that has prevailed throughout the annual
convention of the' Nebraska Federation of
Women's Clubs, which hns been in session
her1 thfiJ-Vtk ' Mrs.- ft; M.BUshnell of
Lincoln, who has served the organization
ns president during the past year, was
unanimously re-elected and the other offices
filled ss follows:"

Third, Mrs. D. Keefe of West Tolnt;
Fourth, Mrs. Carscadden of York: Fifth,
Mrs. (t. II. Hartnough of Mlnden; Sixth,
Mrs. F. Haldenian of Ord.
An Innovation that relieved the balloting
of much of Its tedionsness was the com
bination of the election with a parliamen
tary drill, the process of electing being em
ployed as a demonstration In parliamentary
practice. Mrs. A." A. Scott of Lincoln pre
sided. Talks for Coiisnmers' I. mane.
The work of . the Consumers' lengue was
presented by Mrs. Decker, the nationr.l
president' She' urged' the v. tne-.i to use
goods bearing the label ami so ci.-aie a .de
mand for them. phe explained that the
label Is a guarantee that the goods bearing
them aro made under sanitary and humane
conditions. It It Is the clubwoman's weapon
for lighting the sweat shop and child labor,
for It cannot be attached to garments Into
the making of which either rt these evils
Ro far the label Is used chiefly on women's
white gnrments and rendy-made clothing.
Mrs. Decker has recommended to the In
dustr.al committees that lists he prepared
Of the merchants In 'he various cities who
rsrry the labeled goods and that the list
be of a size convenient for a woman to
carry In her pccktbook. In this way the
women propose to extend the demand.
Upon recommendation of the Industrial
committee of Him general federation, the
convention passed resolutions asking the
Nebraska representatives Itt congress to
use their Influence for the passage of a
bill providing a: appropriation for an offi
cial Investigation -by the United States
bureau of labor of the Industrial conditions
of women and children in the United 8tates.
In addition to this, each club Is requested
to send a petition to this effect to the rep
resentatives from their respective dis
tricts. It was a regrettable arrangement that
placed the Industrial session at the close
of the program this evening, as the Ak-Sar-Ben
parade -took many out of town who
might otherwise have profited by It.
Invitations have been received from Au
rora, David City and Hastings for the next
biennial meeting of the federation. The
invitations come not only from the club
women, but from the commercial Interests
of these places.
Tonight at the concluding session of the
Nebraska Federation of Women's clubs a
resolution was introduced to have biennial
instead of annual meetings in order to
alternate with the National federation. The
resolution went over under the rules until
, The resolutions committee Vought In
report Commendatory to the Caaebeer anti
cigarette law, calling for its endorsement
and condemning the use ' of cigarettes,
which was adopted unanimously.
The Industrial session, which began the
meeting, presided over by Mrs. Draper
Smith of Omaha, discussed the juvenile
court law In its various phases and voted
Its hearty approval.

Mrs. Decker to Stndeats.
' Two chairs should be established at the
State university "The Plain Old Mother"
and "Happiness." So declared Mrs. Sarah
Piatt Decker in an address at the Stale
university this morning. The president of
the Woman's club said:
"In this large and great university there
should bo a chair placed for the plain
oji mother. The patience she bore In pre
paring each of the students for the univer
sity life should not be forgotten' said the
speaker at the beginning of her discourse.
"Education is life la Itself, and without
tho former It is with difficulty that we are
successful la accguiUUxi( any great
things. Along with the other subjects
taught In the Institution, happiness should
be Included. The latter Is a grace. Many
students say that to give us happiness Is
an Impossibility. The real way to acquire
happiness Is to study and practice being
In a good mood. We must look happy,
and like many other good things, after
a time It will become a habit. In many
families a rule has been adopted that un
less the children come to the breakfast
table with a smile playing over their
countenances, they will be denied the ben
eflts of the meal."

The KEELEY CURE
WHAT P. D. ARMOUR SAID:
I hava sent about two hundred
of my employees, from butchers to
foremen, and all have been perma
nently cured. (From a personal
letter to Dr. Kecley.) I do not
think there Is any one thing or
any one man who ever did the
good to humanity that you are
doing with your cure.
P. D. ARMOUR. Chicago, 111.

Now Located at Cor. 25th and Cass Sts., Omaha, Neb.
Only place In the State where the genuine Keeley Kennedies and
treatment are given. All comni u nir at ions confidential.
"I tested this cure; I selected a half
dosen of the toughest products of alco
holism which the Chicago saloons had been
able to turn out, and the drunkard-making
shops In no other city can beat there In
their line of workmanship. The experi
mental cases were sent down to Dwlght,
one at a time, extending over a period of
several weeks. And In due time they were
all returned to me, looking as if a verit
able miracle had been wrought upon them.
The change for the better was so great
that I scarcely rerognlied them. They
went away sots and returned gentlemen.
It was amaalng, and converted me to a
belief In the emracy of Dr. Keeley's 'Gold
Cure' for alcoholiHin and opium."
