Thousands Have Kidney
Trouble and Never
Applicants for Insurance Often
Judging from reports from druggiftt
who are constantly in direct touch with
the public, there ii one preparation that
las been very successful in overcoming
these conditions. The mild and healing
influence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is
soon realized. It stands the highest for
its remarkable record of success.
An examining physician for one of the
prominent Life Insurance Companies; in
aa interview on the subject, made the as
tonishing statement that one reason why
so many applicants for insurance are re
jected is because kidney trouble is so
common to the American people, and the
targe majority of those whose applications
are declined do not even suspect that they
have the disease. Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Soot is on sale at all drug stores in bottles
af two sizes, medium and large.
However, if you wish first to test this
great preparation send 'ten cents to Dr.
Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y., for a
sample bottle. When writing be sure and
mention this paper. Advertisement.

Industry was largely centered on gath

It. On this particular day she had
discovered a pile of cornstolks 4hat

sections and sent them flying. Flying

side yard of Mr. Joslah Wopple. This
piece of trespassing was the easier
because there waa no fence to Inter

When he saw Lettle, lie paused ana
glowered at her. Lettle stopped short
and glowered hack. And she did It
well, too; glowering was a specialty
with her on similar occasions.

"You shut up," advised . Lettle
tersely. Her pale cheeks grew a
shade whiter. With a Jerk she
grasped her cornstalks more firmly
and dashed with them to the back
yard. Filibuster, thinking this meant
the end of a conversation to which lie
had listened with manifest disap

That's a He."
" 'Taln't a He. Turn yon loose, and

This shot gave Lettle a temporary
advantage. Mr. Wopple, willing to
subscribe to wellnlgh anything for the
sake of disagreement. Hesitated mo
mentarily before the vivid picture of
hlrtmelf seeking charity from door to

the outcome of such n ' venture
checked his rejoinder. Splotches of

like spatters of anger. The hand on
