Gainesville, Texas, Feb. 22nd.—Mrs.
L E. Burton of 507 Olad street, this
city, writes the following letter:
"I have been awfully troubled with
my Kidneys; I was In a bad fix and
had been doctoring with tho Doctors,
but was getting no better. I tried a
remedy called Dodd's Kidney Pills and
l found they did me lots or good. 1
had a slight return of my trouble
ind 1 went to the Drug Store and call-
•d for Podd's Kidney Pills. They said
'here was no such pills. I told them
there was. They said they had the
best pills that were made and per
sua.led mo to try a box of another
kind, not Podd's. As I needed some
medicine, I bought a box, but they
did me no good so I went elsewhere
and got the real Dodd's Kidney Pills
and very soon was completely cured
took a box up to the Drug Store and
showed them that there was such
pills and asked them to order Borne,
but as I haven't needed #ny more I
haven't called to see whether or not
they got them."
Toklo, Feb. 22. — The response et

which prevails in China, will, in all
parts of China territory excepting the
regions now occupied by Russia, re-
spect the neutrality of China, so long
as Russia does the same.
"The rules of war which govern tlio
forces of Japan in the field do not per-
mit the wanton destruction of property.
Accordingly, the imperial Chinese gov-
crnment may rest assured that the
mausoleums and palaces of Mukden
and Ilsingking and public buildings
in China everywhere will be secure
from any injur)' not attributable to the
action of Russia.

weighs 800 pounds, and has a healthy
appetite. In the first eighteen weeks
after It, arrival here from Florida^ on

pond weed and two bushels of ulva,
or sea lettuce, making ninety-eighl
bushels of aquatic plants In all In I
eighteen weeks, or au average of
about five and onehalf bushels a

connected. Bay men say that the
present has been the hardest winter
hereabouts on the water In twenty five
"ears.\ On many day. It has been nec-
cut through the Ice to get
at the eel grass required for the sea
cow's rood, sometimes through ice ten
inches In thickness and often through
Ice of five or six Inches.
Sometimes when the ice had moved
out with a shift of the wind, leaving
open spaces, access to the eel grass

Seggel of Munich to have two periods
of acceleration—from 10 to 11 and
from 17 to 18 In girls, and from 12 to

of most rapid Increase In height—from
12 to 14 years—the growth of the
brain Is less than one-hundredth that

one-seventh of the body growth.
