"My nightly rest was broken, owing
to Irregularities of the kidneys,
suffered intensely from severe pains
In the small of my back and through
the kidneys and was annoyed by pain-
ful passages of abnormal secretions.
Doctors failed to relieve me. 1 began
taking Doan's Kidney Pills and I ex-
perienced quick ar.d lasting relief.
Doan's Kidney Pills will prove a bless-

The Mikado's Bill of Fare
The Japanese emperor's yearly ex-
pense of living is limited. For this
purpose he draws $3,000,000 from the
national treasury. His personal wealth
Is not to be spent on his own living,
so that $3,000,000 is really his salary
as manager of the country. He Is re-
quired to pay out of it some thousand
He is perfectly satisfied, for
breakfast, with a bowl of bean soup
and a few other dishes. But his din-
ner usually appears in splendid style,
In some twenty courses, although he
always denounces it as a useless ex-
travagance. When any official feast is
held—the cherry blossom viewing
party at the Kloshikawa botanical
garden, or the chrysanthemum part>
at. She Akasaka palace, for instance
—he will not spare any expense in
preparing an elegant European ban-
quet. The empress is the manager
Dn such an occasion. She is a noted
economist. She always gives a hint
to her court ladies and the wives of
the ministers how to arrange their
dresses and how to save expense.
Firmness is often only the deter-
mination to remain In error.
A little helpfulness may cover a
lot of heresy.
A woman is not only a good deal
better than her neighbor, but she

But Oregonlan's First Experience
With Cabbies Scared Him.
"As it was my first visit in New
York, and as no first visit there is
complete without some pea-and-shell
experience, I was prepared to have
something happen during my stay,"
said a local web-footer, lately returned
rrom a trip east.
"But 1 hadn't expected to be bun
coed before I'd got away from the de-
"I carried a suit case which had
cost me a week's salary, to say noth-
ing of the tooth brush and pajamas I
hoped to use during my stay at the
Waldorf Astoria. I hadn't taken more
than two sniffs of the genuine New-
York air before a chap dressed like
i hack driver ran up to me with,
Have a cab, sir?'
"I thought I would better have one
to keep from getting lost In the great
city, and so handed him the suit case.
You can guess my feelings when 1 saw
that chap take it and run like the
"He was a real sprinter, and I real
ized that I could not hope to overtake
him. I could only stand and stare
after him as his figure rap'Jly dimin

"'Well, I'll be hornswoggled!' said
I. At that moment one of his confed-
erates, also dressed like a hackman,
approached and tried to reassure me
by saying that the fellow hadn't stolen
my 'grip'; that he had only hurried
off to get his place in the line of
hacks. I- noticed that the line was
about a quarter of a mile long."
"Did you get your suit case?"
"Just wait. I suppose they paw 1
was not the man to be trifled with,
or else there was nothing in the case
that they really wanted. At any rate,
after I had resolutely waited for some
time, my man drove up. It may have
been fool-hardy, but I committed my-
self to his care, and was safely driven
to my hotel."—Oregonian.
Proof of Her Meanness
Beth: "Why did you girls haz#

swamp-by-the-sea this summer?
Ruth: "Because she's the meanest,
most deceitful fraud that ever breath-

take. I've always found her the soul of
Ruth: "Then you don't know her.
She's just as sneaky and horried and
self seeking as they make them."
Beth: "But what was it she did?"
Ruth: "Why, with her deceitful
>romiso she had us all at
her beck and call for nearly two
weeks. She deliberately suppressed
he truth, just to get all she could out
)f us. Her false pretenses made us
i)er slaves, and there wasn t anything
,ve wouldn't do for her if she wante'd
is to. We hung around her, and flat-
ered her, and bowed to her, and,
■ouldn't make enough of her, all on
tccount of her malicious misrepre-
entations, and all of the time she was
aughing In her sleeve at us, the mean
tasty, selfish, hateful wretch!"
Beth: "But what was It she promt

Ruth: "Why, she told us that a

vould introduce all of us."
Beth: "Well, didn't he come? or

vas there dishonorable about it?"
Ruth: "Oh, yes, the miserable ap-

CAUSE AND CURE
A Lot of Trouble from Too Much
A little boy of eight years whose
parents did not feed him on the right
kind of food, was always nervous and
suffered from a weak condition of the
stomach and bowels. Finally he was
taken down with appendicitis and
after the operation the doctor, know-
irg that his intestinal digestion was
very weak, put him on Grape-Nuts
twico a day.
Ho rapidly recovered and about two
months thereafter, his Father states,
• He has grown to be strong, muscu-
lar, and sleeps soundly, weighs 62
pounds, and his whole system is in a
fine condition of health." Name given
by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.
It is plain that if be had been put
on Grape-Nuts at an earlier period in
his life, and' kept from the use ot
foods that ho could not digest, he nev-
pr would have had appendicitis. That
disease is caused by undigested food
decaying in the stomach and bowels,
causing irritation and making for the
growth of all kinds of microbes, set-
ting up a diseased condition which is
the active cause ot appendicitis, and
this is vnore marked with people who
do not properly digest white bread.
GrapeNuts is made ot the selected
parts of wheat and barley and by the
peculiar processes of the cooking at
the factory, all of the starch Is turned
Into sugar ready for immediate diges-
tion an . the more perfect nourish-
ment of all parts of the bo'dy, particu-
larly the brain and nerve centers.

What's the Use?
We stew and fret and toil and sweat
And try to win a name,
We strive for years with many tears
To win a little fame,
And by and by we up and die
And all is just the same—
So what's the use?
We all grow old In search of gold
And slave our lives away.
We sell our souls for greenback rolls
And barter love for pay.
And by and by we up and die
And then we turn to clay-
So what's the use?
For love we cry, for love we sigh,
To love we fondly cling.
For eyes that shine we peak and pine
And wince at Cupid's sting.
And by and by we up and die
And everything takes wing—
So what's the use?
We join the race for social place
And hope at last to shine
And spend our cash to cut a dash
And when we get in line.
Why by and by we up and die,
We're planted 'ncath the vine—
So what's the use?
Just do your best and leave the rest
To fate or what you will,
Tn nlav vour parts and break your hearts
And drink of life your 1111,
For by and by you'll up and die,
And all your hopes be nil—
So what's the use?
When Ambassador Choate was lead-
jr of the New York bar many a fledge-
inpt lawyer had a fling at him. There
vas scarcely an attorney who was not
ifraid of him in open court, but else-
where an occasional display of cour-
lge and impudence would be made.
Dne day in the Lawyers' club a bud-
ling pundit, now a highly successful
,ractitioner, observing Mr. Choato at
x neighboring table, asked in a voice
neant for others to hear:
"Ah, counsellor, why was your
uncheon so rudimentary?"
"Perhap3 you can explain," said the
egal light, dryly.
"Because it's in Choate," was the
"Your play upon my name," return-
ed Choate, drawing out the words with
teen emphasis, "painfully exposes the
jrofoundness of your Ignorance. The
uncheon, sir may be in Choate, but
four right to address me is IN-ko-ate."
There was a general laugh as the

Eagle River. Wis., Jan. 10.— (Spe-
cial)—That rheumatism Is caused by

deep interest in this neighborhood is
that of Maggie E. Deckert. In speak-
ing of it she says:
"I had kidney trouble and rheuma-
tism and was so lame I could not walk.
I could not sleep for I ached all over.
I was in a terrible state and firmly
believe that if 1 had not used Dodd's
Kidney Pills 1 would be dead. 1 took
nine boxes of them and they have
done mo more good than all the other
medicines I ever took. Now my aches
are all gone. I can cat and sleep and
1 am feeling good. I want all the
worM to know that Dodd's Kidney
Pills cured me."
Princes Who Paint
Prince Eugen of Sweden, youngest
of King Oscar's four sons, Is regarded
as one of the most accomplished land-
scape painters on the continent. He
spends most of the time in his hand-
some Paris studio. At the last salon
he exhibited three pictures under an
assumed name. The artistic world
acknowledged their merit, so now.
having won praise for his work, and
not bocause of his royal birth, he no
longer conceals his identity.

An English snake charmer named
Leyton was performing at a village
called Vaelklinger, in Rhenish Prus-
sia, in a menagerie with a boa con-
strictor, which she permitted to coil
round her neck. Her courage met
with thunders of applause from the
spectators, who little dreamed that by
their signs of approval they had seal-
ed the poor charmer's death warrant.
Such, however, proved to be the case,
for, apparently infuriated at their
demonstration, the reptile tightened
its coils and amid the shrieks of the
public strangled the woman on the
platform before anything could be
done to assist her. The snake was
Immediately killed. — New York
It happened at one of the banquets
to the members of the International
Press congress. Commissioner l)e
Ollvarez of Argentina was ruefully
regarding a beaver hat that had been
crushed out of all resemblance to a
hat. "Some one sat on It,' he ex-
plained to his sympathizers.
"Cheer up," said Sir Hugh Gilzean-
Read, the Scotch editor. "Suppose
you had had it on at the time!"
Deeds are but deeds made captive.
Now Its the Tabloid Baby
It is claimed that milk can now bo
put into tablolo form, and that several
quarts can bo carried around in the
pockets. Wouldn't it be nice for mam-
mas to be able to slip a tablet In the
baby's mouth in a public place instead
of being compelled to go to the trouble
of hugging it to her bosom and cov-
ering its face with her kerchief?—

Where Violins Are Made
The only place in the world where
violin making may be said to consti-
tute the staple industry is Markneu-
kirchen, in Saxony, with its numer-
ous surrounding villages. There are
altogether about 15,000 people in this
district engaged exclusively In the
manufacture of >'lolins. The InhabW
tants, from the small boy and girl to
the wrinkled, grayheaded veteran
and the aged grandmother, are em-
ployed throughout the year in making
some part or other of this Instrument,
