Mr. Pitts, Once Pronounced Incurably
Has Been We!! Three Years.
E. E. Pitts, 60 Hathaway st., Skow-
hegan, Me., nays: "Seven years ago
my back ached and I was bo run down
that I was
laid up four
months. I had
night sweats and
fainting spells
and dropped to
90 pounds. The
urine passed ev-
ery few minutes
with intense pain
and looked like
blood. Dropsy
set in and the
doctors decided I could not live. My
wife got me using Doan's Kidney
Pills, and as they helped me I took
heart, kept on and was cured so thor-
oughly that I've been well three

The Grecian Bend, It Is Predicted,
Wil! Follow the New Fashion
Soon we s>hall see whether woman's
walk is to be changed by the wires
which an "unimpeachable authority"
says are to be fastened in the backs
of the fall skirts to make them set out.
It is predicted the Grecian bend will
come back with the wires, and that
girls will i;o mincing along on their
toes as they did a decade or so ago.
Next week will settle the momentous
question, for at the meeting of the
National Dressmakers' association
many of these "bustle gowns" will be
exhibited, .and it will be interesting
to note how the models move about
in them. Mrs. Baker, tne president
of the association, says that wired
gowns are the latest things in Paris,
and that all the frocks are flounced
and frilled in a most extravagant
way. Two or three hundred dollars
is a mere bagatelle, she says, for
something to cover the female form.
"Nothing to wear'' will be the pre-
dicament of many unless Mrs. Baker
exaggerates.—New York Press.
An Honest Opinion.
Mineral, Idaho, Oct. 16th.— (Spe-
cial.)—That a sure cure has been dis-
covered for those sciatic pains that
make so many lives miserable Is the
firm opinion of Mr. D. S. Colson, a
well-known resident of this place, and
he does not hesitate to say that cure
Is Dodd's Kidney Pills. The reason
Mr. Colson is so firm in his opinion
Is that he had those terrible pains and
is cured. Speaking of the matter he
"I am only too happy to say Dodd's
Kidney Pills have done me lots of
good. I had awful pains in my hip so
I could hardly walk. Dodd's Kidney
Pills stopped it entirely. I think they
are a grand medicine."
All Sciatic and Rheumatic pains are
caused by Uric Acid in the blood.
Dodd's Kidney Pills make healthy kid-
neys and healthy kidneys strain all
the Uric Acid out of the blood. With
the cause removed there can be no
Rheumatism or Sciatica.

perfectly, with none of the unmanage-

Merchants of lawton are fighting an

recently. The ordinance in question
is one prohibiting the display of wares
in front of mercantile establishments.
Some of the merchants wore using tho

of their places of business to show
goods, and the council sought to rem-
edy this nuisance. A number of ar-
rests have been made, and it is prob-
