STOKE IN BLADDER REMOVED
IN REMARKABLE WAY
A year and a half ago I was taken with
a severe attack of kidney trouble that
pained me to such an extent that mor-
phine had to be given me. Was attended
by a doctor who pronounced it as stone
in the bladder and prescribed Lithia
Water. I took Lithia Water and tablets
for some time and received no relief from
them. I stopped taking medicines for some
time and having some Dr. Kilmer s
Swamp-lloot in the house, I decided to
try it and felt much relieved; while taking
the second bottle commenced to pass
gravel in urine until I had passed in all
at least a half a dozen or more and have
not suffered the slightest since and in all
have taken one bottle and a half and feel
very grateful to Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root.
Yours verv truly,

WVSHINGTON.—An army that does
not exist is being officered by the
war department in obedience to the
mandate of congress. Fit' '.nil more
[ men versed in the profession of arms
' are already on the eligible list for com-
missions in this army. Three new
j boards of army officers, composed of
seasoned colonels, experienced majors,
, captains and first and second lieuten-
! ants, were recently named to pass upon
! the qualifications of other candidates
ambitious to direct Imaginary military
Artemus Ward's shoulder strap com-
pany of warriors, assembled to take
part in the big family feud of 1861 5,
had at least one private—the humor-
ist himself, who was in command; but
the army of the United States volun-
teers is to have none. Don Quixote

tected by a "Malbrino helmet," mount-

Postal Clerks Ask
EMPLOYEES of the postal service
particularly the men employed ii
the railway mail branch, are making a
determined fight for legislation under
which they may organize and affiliate
with the American Federation of La-
bor. Samuel Gompers, president of
the federation, is supporting the move-
Many men formerly in the postal
service, but who were let out because
they were active in encouraging em-
ployees of the service to organize, have
told the committee of the wrongs
which they assert are done the em-
ployees. In a general way, the griev-
ance of the employees is that men are
i whs a more real, more tangible and
! more formidable force than the ghost-
ly army of United States volunteers.
It's a joker in the Dick militia bill, en-
actod into law by congress on May 27,
The Dick bill originally provided for
an actual army of United States volun-
teers similar to the volunteers who en-
listed for the Spanish-American war
' after state organizations were found
j to be troublesome.
, The bill also provided for a separate
scction for an eligible list from which
I officers were to be commissioned when
I the army of United States volunteers,
subject only to the will of the com-
mander-in-chief of the armies of the
United States, might be called into be-
ing in a condition of war.
The scction providing for the vol-
unteer army was stricken from the bill
in the course of a legislative wrangle
over the privilege of the states to or-
ganize volunteers. The authority cre-
ating the army was thus destroyed, but
the contingent section bringing into ex-
istence the list of eligibles for the
army's commissioned otlifficers was not
disturbed. The bill thus passed con-
gress, disembodying the army but pro-
viding officers for it. That is why
the war department is now qualifying
men as eligibles.

frequently dismissed for purely polit-
ical reasons, men let out of the serv-
ice have no recourse.
It is pointed out that the postoffice
department now forbids the individual
employee from laying any complaint
he may have before his senator or
member of congress. The civil service
commission has come in for much
criticism because it has not taken
more interest in cases of dismissed em-
ployees. Witnesses have pointed out
10 the committee that the commission
will not act in the case of a dismissed
employee unless it has prima facie evi-
dence that the dismissal was because
of politics. It. is next to impossible,
say the dismissed employees who have
testified, to prove that men were re-

Munvon's Paw Taw Pills are unlike
all oilier laxatives or cathartics. They
coax the liver into activity by gentle
methods. They do not scour, they do
not gripe, they do not weaken, but they
do start all the secretions of the liver
nnd stomach in a way that soon puts
these organs in a healthy condition and
corrects constipation. In my opinion
constipation is responsible for most ail-
ments. There arf 20 feet of human
bowels, which is really a sewer pipe.
When this pipe becomes clogged the
whole system becomes poisoned, calm-
ing biliousness, indigestion and impure
blood, which often produce rheumatism
and kidney ailments. No woman who
Buffers with constipation or any liver
ailment can expect to have a clear
complexion or enjoy good health. If
1 had my way I would prohibit the sale
of nine tenths of the cathartics that are
now being sold for the reason that they
soon destroy the lining of the stomach,
setting up serious forms of indigestion,
and to paralyze the bowels that they re-
fuse to act unless forced by strong

'*1 THE RECORD!
cNEVIN. "Wild Hor«, C ty«iio
Representatives victor Mur-
doch, Insurgent Republican, of
Kansas; Swager Sherley of Kentucky
and Frank Clark of Florida, both Dem-
ocrats, have been fighting to hav^
every unspoken "speech" printed in
the Congressional Record labeled
something like this: "Not delivered in
the house of representatives."
These men believe that the Record,
as It now leaves the press, perpetrates
a fraud on the reader every time It de-
clares that Congressman' de-
livered the following speech on such
a date, when all Congressman —
did was to get permission to insert in
its columns a carefully prepared man-
uscript intended for the consumption
of his constituents, at the expense of
the United States government.
"It is the only honest way," de-
clared Munlock to the correspondent.
"The Record, under the present sys-
tem, is not a true report of the pro-
ceedings of the house. It may well
be that an article of value, prepared
by a member of congress, should be
printed in the Record, but it should be
"The first result of labeling things
in the record by their right names
would be the abandoning of the pres-
ent abuse by Individual representa-
tives. When a man's constituents be-
I gin to ask him, 'Did you really deliver
! this speech, or did you just have It
printed?' he will quit the practice.
I "Congress could not possibly afford
the time that would be necessary for
rhe delivery of all the speeches that
; appear In the JLecord. Therefore,
'speeches will ha#®to be shortened,
; and they ousht to be.
