A LIVING DEATH. x
Vividly Described By a Citizen of
Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Andrew Johnson, 411 West Twelfth
St., Sioux Falls, S. D„ says: "Doan's
Kidney Pills saved
my life. My doctor,
from a careful an-
alysis of the urine
and a diagnosis of
my case, had told
me I could not live
six weeks. I was
struck down In the
street with kidney
trouble, and for a
whole year could
not leave the house.
I lost flesh, my eyes failed me, I
bloated at times, my back hurt and I
Buffered a living death. There seemed
no hope until I began using Doan's
Kidney Pills. Then I began to im-
prove. The pain left gradually, the
swellings subsided, 1 gained appetite
and weight, and to make a long story
short, I got well!"

Forty years after the Bodleian li-

of the first folio Shakespeare—that
is to say, in 1664—the librarian of that
institution, clearing out some "super-

In the lot and accepted $120 for the

A Food Problem.
An Asheville man tells how right

failed to accomplish
"For more than 15 years," he says,
"I was afflicted with stomach trouble
and Intestinal indigestion, gas form-
ing in stcrtnach and bowels and giving
me great distress. These conditions
were undoubtedly due to the starchy
food I ate, white bread, potatoes, etc.,
and didn't digest. I grew worse with
time, till, 2 years ago, I had an attack
which the doctor diagnosed as appen-
dicitis. When the, surgeon operated
on me, however, it was found that my
trouble was ulcer of the pancreas, In-
stead of appendicitis.
"Since that time I have had several
such attacks, suffering death, almost.
The last attack was about 3 months
ago, and I endured untold agonies.

The American Sheep.
The American sheep is coming to
be more and more a matter of interest
to the American farmer. It is doubt-
ful if In this generation we shall
again see the small interest in sheep
that has been shown during the past
fifteen years. This lack of Interest
was due to the fact that the sheep
with which the farmer found himself
fifteen years ago was largely a wool-
producing sheep,, and wool was then
declining at a rapid rate. The de-
mand for mutton was much less then i
than now. In the fifteen years there
has been a great change In the char-
acter of American sheep. They are
more largely suited for the production
of mutton than they were then, and,
moreover the price of wool is again
high enough to encourage the sheep
owner to produce it.
The city people are demanding a
sheep of higher quality than formerly
and can hardly be satisfied with a
sheep that has been brought up on
weeds and brush. The sheep that is j
well fed from birth to the block Is
the only one that produces meat that
I brings a good price in the city mar-
kets. The sheep that have been j
j grown on poor feed and then fattened \
quickly sell for a smaller price on the I
city market, as their meat is known to J
be not of the best quality. The Amer-
ican sheep may be a pasture cleaner, I
but It must have good grass also if l '
Is to be profitable.
Plant Potatoes Early.
The quantity of potatoes grown in |
this locality is not large, and 1
usually only enough are grown j
for local use. Jacksonville, the prln- j
cipal city In this locality, has
shipped in large quantities. The pota-
toes that are grown are planted early,
about the 25th of April. Many of our
farmers have the superstition of want-
ing to plant their potatoes on or be-
fore Good Friday. In cutting the po-
tatoes for seed we usually leave about
two eyes to the piece. There are very
few farmers, if any, that plant their
potatoes in hills. Most of them put
their potatoes in drills, as they be-
lieve they get a larger yield of tubers
in this way and the work of caring j
for them Is reduced. The cultivator
then needs to run only one way. and
the tops of the potatoes shade the
rows and keep down the weeds. I
have found that the best way to se-
cure a good crop of smooth potatoes
was to plant on timber soil on which
has been placed no fresh stable ma-
nure.—C. A. Rowe, Morgan County,

Many years ago, Dr. Pierce discovered
that cnemicallv pure glycerine, of proper
strength, is a better solvent and preserv-
ative of tho medicinal principles resid-

cinal plants than is alcohol; and, further-
more, that it possesses valuable medicinal
properties of its own, being demulcent,
nutritive, antiseptic, and a most efficient
Neither of the above medicines con-
tains alcohol, or any harmful, habit-
forming drug, as will bo seen from a
glance at the formula printed on each
bottle wrapper. They are safe to uso and
potent to euro.
Not only do physicians prescribe the
above, non-secret medicines largely, but
the most intelligent people employ them
—people who would not think of using
The better class of druggists, everywhere, are men of scientific attainments and high integrity,
who devote their lives to the welfare of their fellow men in supplying the best of remedies and
purest medicinal agents of known value, in accordance with physicians' prescriptions and
scientific formula. Druggists of the better class manufacture many excellent remedies, but
always under original or officinal names and they never sell false brands, or imitation medicines.
They aro the men to deal with when in need of anything in their line, which usually includes
all standard remedies and corresponding adjuncts of a lirst-class pharmacy and tho finest and
best of toilet articles and preparations and many useful accessories and remedial appliances.
The earning of a fair living, with the satisfaction which arises from a knowledge of the benefits
conferred upon their patrons and assistance to the mcdical profession, is usually their greatest
reward for long years of study and many hours of daily toil. They all know that Syrup of
Figs is an excellent laxative remedy and that it gives universal satisfaction, and therefore they
aro selling many millions of bottles annually to tho well informed purchasers of tho choicest
remedios, and they always take pleasuro in handing out tho genuine article bearing tho full
name of the Company—California Fig Syrup Co.—printed on the front of every package.
They know that in cases of colds and headaches attended by biliousness and constipation and
of weakness or torpidity of tho liver and bowels, arising from irregular habits, indigestion, or
over-eating, that thcro is no other remedy so pleasant, prompt and beneficial in its effects as
Syrup of Figs, and they aro glad to sell it because it gives universal satisfaction.
Owing to tho excellence of Syrup of Figs, the universal satisfaction which it gives and the
immonso demand for it, imitations have been made, tried and condemned, but thcro aro
individual druggists to be found, hero and there, who do not maintain the dignity and principles
of the profession and whose greed gets tho better of their judgment, and who do not hesitate
to recommend and try to sell tho imitations in order to make a larger profit. Such preparations
sometimes havo the name—" Syrup of Figs"—or "Fig Syrup" and of some piratical concern,
or fictitious fig syrup company, printed on tho package, but they never havo the full name of
the Company—California Fig Syrup Co.—printed on tho front of tho package. The imitations
should bo rejected because they aro injurious to the system. In order to sell tho imitations
they find it necessary to resort to misrepresentation or deception, and whenever a dealer passes
off on a customer a preparation under tho name of "Syrup of Figs" or "Fig Syrup," which
does not bear tho full name of tho California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of tho package,
he is attempting to deceivo and mislead the patron who has been so unfortunate as to enter his
establishment, whether it be larcrc or small, for if the dealer resorts to misrepresentation and
and deception in ono case ho will do bo with other medicinal agents, and in tho filling of
physicians' prescriptions, and should bo avoided by every one who values health and happiness.
Knowing that tho great majority of druggists are reliable, we supply the immense demand
for our excellent remedy entirely through the druggists, of whom it may be purchased every-
where, in original packages only, at the regular price of fifty cents per bottle, but as exceptions
exist it is necessary to inform tho public of the facts, in order that all may decline or return
any imitation which may be sold to them. If it does not bear the full name of tho Company—
California Fig Syrup Co.—printed on the front of every package, do not hesitate to return tho
article and to demand tho return of your money, and in future go to ono of tho better class of
druggists who will sell you what you wish end tho best of everything in his lino at reasonable prices.
Every woman believes in heredity
to this extent: That her children in-
herited their disagreeable traits from
tho ordinary patent, or secret medicines.
Every ingredient entering into the com-
position of Dr. Pierce's medicines has
the strongest kind of an endorsement
from leading medical writers of the
soveral schools of practice. No other
medicines put up for like purposes has
any such professional endorsement.
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure con-
stipation. Constipation is the causo of
many diseases. Cure the cause and you
cure the disease. One "Pellet" is a gentle
laxative, and two a mild cathartic. Drug-
gists sell them, and nothing is "just as
good." Easy to take as candy.
A favorite way of saying mean
things about a husband is to sigh and
