THE STROUD DEMOCRAT
I MEDICINE THAT OVERCOMES
MOST OBSTINATE KIDNEY
About 1904 I was bothered about two
years with a severe attack of kidney j
trouble. Mv condition was such that I
I was hardly able to drag around the |
house and do my work. I did not
have any appetite and could not rest at
night and I felt more tired in the morn-
ing than I did on going to bed. My doc-
tor treated me for about one month; he
wiid that I had kidney trouble, but he
did not give me any relief. Bv chance
one day my husband was in town and
noticed Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root on a
druggist's shelf and decided to bring
some home for me to try; the first bottle
gave such relief that I continued the use
of Swamp-Root until I was restored to
*r>od health, and I have had good health
for the last ten years. I cheerfully rec-
ommend Swamp Root to others who
have kidney troubles.

And Good Demand for All Farm
It is no now experience for settlers
| located in a fertile country such as
| Western Canada, where lands may bo
bought at very reasonable prices, to
harvest a crop that in one season pays
j the entire cost of their farm. Undoubt-
edly this was the experience of many
j farmers during 1915, but one instance
may be quoted. A settler who came
to Canada from the United States
some years ago decided to add to his
holdings by buying an adjoining quar-
ter section near his home at Warner,
at $20.00 an acre, with terms spread
over a period of years. He got the
land into a good stato of cultivation

Oklahoma City, March 21.—Although il

Villa was reported in the Babicora
Lake region, on the ranch of Mrs.
Phoebe Hearst, which he has ravaged
several times in the past. Babicora is
about fifty-five miles south of Galeana,
where one section of the American ex-
peditionary force has arrived and is
pushing forward at the rate of thirty-
three miles a day. A few miles to the
west of the bandit's position is Natn-
iquipa, which is held Dy a powerful
Carranza garrison. On the east are
the frowning barriers of the Sierras
Maderas mountains, barring the way
to 9bnora. General Gutierrez, Car-
ranza's first chief, declares that he
holds all the passes to Sonora.
To the south Villa's way is blocked
heavy losses, all other companies" have by the Carranza garrison at Madera
made a considerable increase ' *1--
premium rates for hail insurance on
growing crops. The Reliable Hall Insur-
ance Company, of Oklahoma City, has
announced that its rates will be prac-
tically the same as last year in most ol
the counties, while in other counties
■there will be only a slight increase.
It is said that this, coupled with the
fact that The Reliable has a splendid
teputatlon for fair adjustments and <|Uick
payment of losses, is causing many farm-
ers to Insist on placing their insurance
with this Oklahoma Company. Adv.
It takes some men a lifetime to dis
:over how unimportant they are.

Scored on the Students.
Prof. R. \V. Lee of McGill University
t>aw school was once addressing the
Ontario liar association, and the Os-
joode hall students were present. Ot
course D« an Lee's address had to bo
punctuated by the usual students' out-
bursts. Dean Lee touched on ancient
and modern law and the methods of
lawyers and judges. Taking up one
line of legal problems, he said: "Now,
f I asked a lawyer of such and such
an age this question, he would answer
so and so"—or something to that ef-
fect. "But, coming down to the pres-
ent day, if I were to ask the same
question of an Osgoodo Hall student

The whole situation seems to hinge
m the Carranzistas. it they remain
loyal to the first chief,-which up to
Ihe present they have shown every
indication of doing. Villa appears
trapped. It is, of coui-ne, realized that
he is on ground of his own choosing
and a country admirably suited for
guerrilla warfare and surprise attacks.
A telegram received by General
Gavila at Juarez rrom Col. Nieto
Mairas, Carranza commander at Pear
son, stated that Villa fled from El
Valle to Averda. abandoning thirty of
his wounded men. Among the wound-
ed. who had been shot in the Columbus
raid and carried along in wagons, only
to be abandoned at K1 Valle, was said ;
to be the ^ illista leader, Pablo Lopez.
Lopez is the leader whose death was
reported as a positive fact at the Co
Itimbus raid. Later reports c ist some
doubts on his death, and indicated
that another chief carrying his papers
might h; <e b"on the real victim. Lo-

plus as profit. This settler had some
adjoining land, and his whole wheat
crop for the season amounted to
over 18,000 bushels. He is now plan-
ning to obtain some sheep and invest
his profits in live stock which will as-
sure him a good living irrespective of
what the season may happen to be.
Canada's financial position is ex-
cellent. All speculation has been elim-
inated, and trading is done on a cash
basis, with restricted credit.
Detailed figures of Canada's trade
for twelve months ending October 31
show how tho war is forcing Canadian
trade Into new channels. One of the
most extraordinary changes is in com-
merce with the United States. A
couple of years ago Canada imported
from the United States two or thr*Q
hundred million uollars' worth of
goods more than she exported. The
balance of trade was all with the
United States. The balance is rapid-
ly disappearing, and the present out-
look is that by the end of this year
Canada will have exported to the
United States more than she has im-
The figures for tho past four year3
aro illuminating. They are as fol-
1912 $145,721,050 $112,057,022
1913 179.050,796 442.341.S40
1914 213,493,408 421,07152s
1915 314,118,774 340,509,921
Four years ago, in 1912, the balance
of trade in favor of the United
States was no less than two hundred
and sixty-seven millions, and this
year, the balance is reduced to only
thirty-two millions. The figures are
extraordinary and reflect the changed
and new conditions ln Canada. It
looks as if for the first lime in nearly
half a century this year Canada will
sell more to tho United States than
sho will buy from tho Americans.—
Suffered So Much Felt She Had to

[ Elba, Ala.—Mrs. M. T. May, of this
place, writes: "I was not especially
strong when I married ... but after
my marriage, I seemed to get very
much worse. About two months nfter
I was married, I began to have awful j
weak spells. Would have bad spells
of headache, simply felt bad all tho [

suffered so much pain in my left side
and had the swimming of the head and
