Arc- these reports all true? Ask a neialiOor who knows. Here is a LoKandportcit'zen, ask him, Head what he says. Mr. J. «, Humphrey of 1838 Toledo St, says I have bad 16 years ol kidnuy complaint, and have taken a great deal of medicine, with the only result that 1 got rid of my money. I suffered so much at times, in fact death would havejbeen welcome relief.They were the most distressing backaches, often rendering me so helpless that 1 could not turn from one side to the other in a bed without rising to sitting position. One doctor told me that my main trouble was enlargement of tht) proitratc gland, and partly accounted for the distressing difficulty wilh the kidney secretion fro n which I suffered. 1 lost control over the secretions, and they were highly colored, contained a haavy sediment and were accompalned by more or less pain. I got a bor of Dean's Kidney Pills at B. P.Kees- ling's drug store ami as 1 used them.the symptoms became less marked, and finally passed away .'altogether. I am on my feet a great deal now, but never have backache, nor any of the distressing trouble with the kidney secretions with which 1 suffered with, for so many years. Our daughter was here yisitlngr from Plttsburg, and complained of backache.] induced her to uso Doan's Kidney Pills' and they promptly cured her. 1 recommend them to any one suffering trom any kind of kldaey ailment."

Toting men, buy no lottery tickets, purchase no prize packages, bet on no baseball games or yacht racing, have no faith in luck, answer no mysterious circulars proposing great income for small investment. Drive away the buzzards that hover around our hotels trying to entrap strangers. Go out and make an honest living. Have God on your side and be a candidate for heaven. Remember all the paths of sin are banked with flowers at the start, and there are plenty of helpful hands to .fetch tbe gay charger to your door and hold the stirrup while you mount. But farther gn tbe horse plunges to the bit in a slough inextricable. The Truth of God. The best honey is not like that which Jonathan took on the end of the rod and brought to his lips, but that which God puts on the banqueting table of mercy, at -which we are all invited to sit. I was reading of a boy among the mountains of Switzerland ascending a dangerous place with his father and the guides. The boy stopped on the edge of the cliff and said, "There is a flower I mean to get." "Come away from there," said the father. "You will fall off." "No," said he. "I must get that beautiful flower." And the gnides rushed toward him to pull him back, when just as they heard him say, "I almost have it,""he fell 2,000 feet. Birds of prey were seen a few days after circling through the air and lowering gradually to the place where the corpse lay. Why seek flowers off the edge of the precipice when yon can walk knee deep amid the full blooms of the very paradise of God? When a man may sit at the king's banquet, why will he go down the steps and contend for the refuse and bones of a hound's kennel? Sweeter than honey and the honeycomb," says David, is the truth of God. With honey out of the rock wonld I have satisfied thee," says God to 'the recreant Here is honey gathered from the blossoms of trees of life, and with a rod made ont of the wood of the cross I dip it up for all yonr souls. The poet Hesiod tells of an ambrosia and a nectar tbe drinking of which wonld make nieu live forever, and one sip of the honey from the Eternal Kock will give yon eternal life with God. Come off the malarial levels of a sinful life. Come and live OH the uplands of grace, where the vineyards sun themselves. "Oh, taste and- see that the Lord is gracious!" Be happy now and happy forever. For those who take a different course the honey will turn to gall.' For many things) I have admired Percy Shelley, the great English poet, but I deplore the fact that it seemed a sweetness, to him to dishonor God. ^ poem "Queen Mab" has in it the maligning of the Deity. Shelley was impious enough to ask for .Rowland Hillfs Surrey chapel that he might denounce the Christian religion. He was in great glee against God and the truth. Bnt;he visited Italy, and one day on the Silediterranean with two friends in a Doat which was 24 feet long he was coming toward shore when an hour's squill struck the water. A gentleman standing on shore through a glass saw many boats tossed in this squall, but all ioutrode the storm except one, in which Shelley arid his two friends were sailing. That never came ashore, but tbejbodies of two of die occupants -were washed up on the beach, one of them ie-poet. A funeral pyre was built on seashore by sonio classic friends, and the two bodies -were consumed. Poor Shelley! He would have no God •while be lived, and I fear had no God when he died. "Tbe .Lord fcnoweth the way of the riighteonsi, but the way of he ungodly sliall perish." Beware of the forbidden honey! WOMEN OF THE SOUTH THEIR ENTRANCE INTO THE FIELD OF HONEST LABOR. Activity Amoni: ladies In » Section Where Work W»* Once Considered Unlikdyllke — Competing With Men In New Channels of Employment. Bei'ore the war there were literally no *vennes for self support open to ladies in the south. Teaching was the only conceivable line in which a lady could with proper family pride and dignity support herself, and it was resorted to only when all the male members of the honse had passed away and the family reduced to positive need. It did not enter into the minds of southern gentlemen to conceive such a thing as the fact that the women of their name conld or wonld be self sustaining. It is only since the war—and the encroachment has been very gradual—that women have entered the lists with men, and now they compete with them ic nearly every field of honest, labor. In the large dry goods stores two-thirds of the clerks are women and girls. Men still preside in the heavy dress goods, carpet and linen departments, and of course as floorwalkers and window dressers. The head bookkeeper is a man, but his assistants and cashiers are women. Cash girls are as common as cash boys, and when employed in a store are employed exclusively. They are usually attired in a neat uniform, wearing long aprons on which their numbers are marked. They range from 10 to 15 years of age, at which latter age, if their capacity -and term of service warrant it, they are promoted to be clerks. Girls in stores in the sonth are allowed mnch more freedom than in the larga stores in New York and other metropolitan places. Their hours are shorter, their work lighter, their wages higher. They all live at home or in some reputable boarding houses, lodging houses, and the hand to mouth discomfort of hurried cheap meals at poor, cheap restaurants do not enter into the life of the southern saleswoman. Twenty or 80 years ago women and girl clerks were few and far between; now they can be seen in every good sized city, hurrying in throngs to their work every morning a little before 7 o'clock. A, large proportion of the teachers in the public schools are women. Many of the clerks in the postofficea are girls. Every large business house, mannfac tory and lawyer's office has its woman stenographer and typewriter. It is only in the railway offices, managing editors' offices and the supreme and United States courts that men are employed as stenographic reporters. The telephone operators are girls. All the large agencies, like Bradstreet's, and the leading insurance companies employ girl shorthand and type writers. Of course they do not get as good salaries as men occupying like positions. A case in point will be of interest. A merchant doing a large business in a southern city advertised in the New York papers for an expert stenographer. He had many answers. Finally on« suited him—so short, well worded, businesslike, offering such irreproachable references. The letter was signed "Willie ." Here- plied at once, offering a salary of $1,200 per year and urging the applicant to come without delay. In a few days he was surprised to have a delicate, bright faced girl of about 20 years of age walk into his office and announce herself as Willie , ready for business. He could not refuse her because the question of sex had never entered into the contract, and she was a proved expert, but he did reduce her salary from the very outset, saying "of course he could not pay a girl what a man was worth." Women printers are becoming general in the southern newspaper and job printing office?, and they work also in the binding, stitching and folding departments. They do also the lighter work in engraving and photographic establishments. Nearly all of the ornamental water color and china painting and crayon drawing i-s done by women, and they even teach dancing and physical culture classes. At ull of the largo expositions they are employed as booth ami c^'rt di-^rUmtnrs. They woil' in the cotton, glass, bos, paper, match, shoe, ready made clothing, patent medicine and all other factories. Some of the large factories provide comfortable quarters for them. When one considers the newspaper •work in the south, it is there that women are seen at their best. They write on every subject, from a leader to a description of a germau, from a sledge hammer book review to an article on lace. Some of the very best articles on the industrial development in the south in the "write ups" of the new mineral towns are by women. They interview mill owners and 'furnace bosses, railway kings and enthusiastic "boomers" and write of "brown hematite ores," "manganese," "coal." "timber." "iron," "open heart steel," "fertilizers" and "phosphatic deposits" with a freedom mid familiarity truly masculine. They succeed well as book agents; they are not unduly persistent, and when their bearing is dignified and refined and the book they offer attractive it is hard to refuse them. Girls are very rarely seen as waitresses in southern hotels and never in restaurants or beer gardfc*. On she whole the working class at the sonth amonR •women and girls is a remarkably repn- table one. They are well behaved and modest, and command the respect of their employers and of all with whom they coin® in contact COLQUTTT. (DEMOCRATIC PEN POINTS. We now have government by banta. Secretary Gage wants prosperity for the bankers only. McKinley in 1890: "He (Cleveland) is doing all in his power to demonetize silver, and thereby doable the debt burdens of cite people." McKinley in his message: "All our obligations must be redeemed in gold." (Silver included.) Why this remarkable change in the president's views on silver? Did be write Che message at all? or was it dictated to him? , State Senator Burler (W. Va., Rep.): The Republicans of our state are almost oqually divided on the silver is sue. We cannot go before the people •with a. gold basis platform, and at the same time hope for success at the polls." Mr. Burley is not only a Republican, but is also an advocate of the gold standard. Viewed from every aspect, it is obvious that the Republicans will be on the defensive from the opening to the close of the forthcoming session of congress. They •will have so many shortcomings and disappointments of party policy and administration to explain that on. no proposition of general interest can they be aggressive. Cuba and the currency -will be the questions around which, the debates will raga with, greatest fury, without immediate hope of settlement on any basis satisfactory to the national will or con science. Is there a Democratic club in your Ticinity If, not, why not? The work of organization is going on everywhere. Government by Feoplw or by Bank** The ardent desire of the gold clique to "take the government out of the banking business" does not meet witk the approval of the people. With a curious perversity the citizens of this country have more faith in the stability -of the government than they have in'the stability of th« banks. They •have an idea that a government note is good for its face, and will continue to be good, and they lack this confidence in notes "guaranteed by the assets of the banks." It is unfortunata for the schemes of the gold clique that pu'blic attention has been called so frequently of late to the manner in which some bankers have done business. Within the last nine months President McKinley has pardoned twelve' bank wreckers. While this does not prove that bankers as a class are less deserving of confidence than other men engaged in private business, it marks a distinct contrast between private and public control of the nation's finances. If republicans are sincere in their devotion to "sound" money, they will cease their demands that the money of this nation shall be issued on pri- rate account. There is no element of soundness in such, an issue, and if the suggestion is made that the government guarantee the bank Issue, why not let the government assume that responsibility at first hand and be done with it? Attic Wit. "I don't think that new prima donna will do." said the boarder who has the attic room. "She is too much like the furnace here—at least her voice is." •How is that?" asked Mrs. Hash- croit. « 'Very weak in tbe upper register."— Journal. McKinleT Fa)IDC of. Hortgag«. •We should be glad to entertain a doubt about the stories coming from Washington that the president is taking up political mortgages with which he became incuznbered during the campaign, but the neglect on the part of the president's friends to contradict them, and the persistence of the president in acting as If some of these reports are true, make it difficult to believe that he has not surrendered some part, of his prerogative. At all events, many republicans are complaining in the national csipital that patronage formerly dispensed by the president is now being given or withheld at the dictation of holders ol political mortgages superior to claims of the other people upon their chief magistrate. ., . Bad News Tor Dlngleyltei. It falls with peculiar sadness upon the ears of Senator Aldrich of Rhode Island, who vouched for the peculiar excellence of the cotton schedule of the Dingley tariff law, that the wages of 28,000 operatives in Pall River will be reduced 10 per cent. The cause of the reduction is the depressed condition of the cotton market, which does not enable print cloth, it is asserted, to be manufactured for the price now pre- railing, which is thu lowest on record. And thus we see the failure of the most scientific tariff law ever framed to produce either revenue, protection or higher wages. Fears th» Power of Trnit*. Secretary Sherman talked so bravely * few weeks ago against the growing power and , multiplying evils of trusts that the people were led to hope tha subject would receive earnest attention from the nation's chief magistrate in his first exhaustive state paper. Tho president's failure, therefore, to tako any notice of this vitally important matter can be accounted for only on the hypothesis that he did not cHoose to expose Ms party to the reproaches and enmity of the beneficiaries of th» trusts.

While maple sugar is new it will be found that grated it serves as a licious hard sauce for hot puddings. A tablespooziful of vinegar added to the water in which fish is boiled will make the flesh firmer and improve its flavor. The yolk of an egg well beaten is a very good substitute for cream in coffee and will answer for three cups. New irons, such as sad irons, frying pans or waffle irons, should be heated slowly, or they will be likely to crack. For tired feet put a handful of common salt into four quarts of hot water. Place the feet in the water while it is hot as can be borne. Then rub the feet dry with a rough towel.

TJnd«r the new rule, the owner of am interchangeable mileage ticket may. at his convenience and leisure. sign his name upon the back of the widen part of the mileage atrip c)o»e to the la«t preceding detatchroent (but it must be signed with an indelible pencil orlwith ink, or It wil not be honored). anCCcan leave his ticket thus slimed with the Agent upon his arrival »t a station, or send it to bim'by a messenger or by the hotel porter, or in some other way, and upon hie return to tbe station flntl hl» exchange ticket ready End his baggage cheeked ; provided he ha8 made such an advance arrangement Therefore there need be no more delay at the station or on the train in vhe »«o of the new than there was in using the old form of mileage ticket, which latter form WM good only over the system of roads, while the "interchangeable" in good over forty. The old form of exchange ticket la valid for oontinuo'siB passage only on » certain train and date, while the new or modlSed form will bo good on any train, (except tha '-Limited"), oa either the date of Issue or the day following. This new form has been simplified to reader it easy of issue and to better accommodate travelers, and the hindrances which accompanied the old form will therefore be, to tb« early future, entirely obliberated. Interline tickets from points on one Railway to points on another, via throutrb car lines »md rla junctions where connections are close and there are,no transfers, are being prepared M fastasposjibld. These tickets will be iMUtd in exchange for coupons from the intercunge* able mileage tioket,and baggage win be aback- ed through, a convenience which could not bo enjoyed by the use »f the old form of miletgo ticket. The- modifications above alluded to kave been approved by the Mileage Ticket Bureau of the Central Passenger Association, and witt be in effect on or before December 1st or 1u« as soon as the new forms of exchange and interline tickets can be printed and distributed among the thousands of agencies of the forty different railway companies over whose linos the tickets are honored, and gome Agent* of the Peonsj-Jvania Lines fiave been already snpplied with them. It is believed thai theM amendments to a plan which is ready suooew- fuland popular, will place the new interchangeable mileage ticket beyond the reach of reasonable crltioiam.
