Doan's Kidney Pills are most ef

of their worth.
Mrs. T. Robinson,. 122 E. Kerr
St:, Salisbury, says: '"I bad
rheumatic twinges in my limbs
and back. I learned of the mer
it of Doan's Kidney Pills through
my friends and I used them.
They lived up to the claims- made
for them. Whenever I notice
that my kidneys are the least

weak and lame, I jt.ike few
doses of Doan's Kidney pills and
they bring relief."

TO MEET THE DEFICIT.
Plans toed Upon in Programme to Be
Washington, Jan 16. Admin
istration plans for meeting the
Treasury deficit at the end of the
next fiscal year, took the form of
a definite programme today, em
bracing increases in the inherit
ance tax, a new tax on excess
profits of corporations and part
nerships, and a bond is3ue of
$289,000 000. A bill including
these proposals and bearing the
endorsement of President Wilson
and Secretary McAdoo will be
framed at once and pressed in
The increase in revenue under
the plan is expected to be more
than $500,000,000 annually, and
if it fails to take care of the de
ficit a $100,000,000 issue of
Treasury certificates of indebted
ness may be decided on.
As agreed to informally today
by Democrats of the ways and
means committee and approved
by the President and Secretary
ot the Treasury, the excess prof
its tax would be at the rate of
eight or ten per cent on such re
turns in excess of eight per cent
on investment, and would yield
something more than $200,000,
000, the inheritance tax would be
raised to one and one-half in
stead of one per cent on mini
mum estates and from ten to fif
teen per cent on those of more
than $15,000,000, yielding an ad
ditional revenue of about $22,
000,000; and the bond issue of
$289,00 000 would be designated
expressly for emergency expens
es, such as the Mexican trouble,
the Alaskan railway, the new
armor and nitrate plants, pur
chase of the Danish Indies, and
appropriations for the shipping
board. . .
In this form the programme
will be submitted by Democrats
of the committee to their Repub
lican cojl.eague.s, who will be ask
ed to make any suggestions im
mediately so the measure may be
brought into the House.
There is more Catarrh in this
section of the country than all
other diseases put together, and
until the last few years was sup
posed to be iacurabie. For a
great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease and
prescribed local remedui and by
constantly falling to cure with
local treatment,. pronounced it in
curable. Science has proven
Cata'rh to be a constitutional
disease, and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure, manufactured by
F. J, Cheney & Co., Toledo, O.',
is tlv: only constitutional cure on
the laarket. ft is taken internal
ly. It acts direptly on the bjoqd
and mucous surfaces of the system
