denies that he intended to smuggle and
says that the diamonds were intended,
as presents for the members of tlx
Sunday School Teachers' Union. Had
and a companion had declared that
they had but $25 worth of dutiable
goods ou their persons. Hie partner at ;
home says that someone will pay deac-

and that if the arrested man bad dtrtia-
ble goods he was lguorant of that fact.

ONE OF TWO WAY8.
Tbe blader was created for one pur
pose, namely, a receptacle for the urines
and as such it is not liable to any form
of disease except by one of two ways.
The first way Is imperfect action
of the kidneys. The second way is
from carelesnmVcal treatment of othser
Unhealthy urine from unhealthy
kidneys is the chief cause of bladder
troubles. So thewomb, like the blad
der, was created for one purpose, and
if not doctored too much is not liable
to weakness or disease, except in rare
cases. It is situated back of and very
close to the bladder, therefore any pain
diseaseor inconvienience manifested in
kidneys, back, bladder or urinary pas
sage is often, by mistake, attributed
to female weakness or womb trouble
of some sort. The error ii easily a
voided. To find out corfrectlyj set
your urine aside for twenty four
hours; a sediment or settling indicate
kidney or bladder trouble. The mild
