i FADED TO A SHADOW. Worn Down by Five Yeara of Suffer, ing from Kidney Complaint Mrs. Remethe Myers, of 180 South O., says: I have worked hard in my time and have been exposed again and again to changes of ' weather. It is no wonder my kidneys gave out and I went all to pieces at last wP For five years I was fading away and finally so weak that for six months I could not get out of the house. I was nervous, restless and sleepless at night and lame and sore in the morning. Sometimes everything would whirl and blur before me. I bloated so badly I could not wear tight clothing, and had to put on shoes two sizes larger than usual. The urine was disordered and passages were dreadfully frequent. I got help from the first box of Doans Kidney Pills, however, and by the time I had taken four boxes the pain and bloating were gone. I have been in good health ever since.

The cigarette output of 4,368,729,015 in the calendar year of 1906 must have come as a surprise to the bulk of the trade, but more stunning yet its increase in one year of 842,240,425, an increase by nearly 300,000,000 larger than the increase of our cigar industry during the same year. This jump is the more remarkable in the face of the pronounced and unrelenting hostility of a half dozen state legislatures which have ostracized not only the manufacture but also the handling and consumption of cigarettes within the confines of their respective territories.

According to some curious investigations conducted by English scientists, eldest sons tend to be criminals and youngest sons paupers. A great many thousand school children and many family histories have been examined, to yield these results. Firstborn children were found to be, as a rule, taller and heavier, with greater ability and endurance than the others. This is in accordance with the popular feeling in many countries that the oldest child is superior to the others and deserving of special privileges. It is a well established fact that among men of genius an undue proportion are eldest sons. Detroit Frea Press. FOOLED THE PREACHER. WILLING TO LET LONDONS NEW FAD HIM DIE.

A wise doctor found out coffee was hugting him, so he quit drinking it He was so busy with his practice, however, that his wife had to write how he fooled his brother, a clergyman, one day at dinner. She says: Doctor found coffee was injuring him and decided to give Postum a trial, and we have used it now for four years, with continued benefit. In fact, he is now free from the long train of ills that follow coffee drinking. To show how successful we are in making Postum properly I will relate an incident. At a dinner we gave, Doctor suggested we serve Postum Instead of ordinary coffee. Doctors brother, a Clergyman, supposed it was old fashioned coffee and remarked, as he called for his second cup: If you do preach against coffee, I see you haven't forgotten how to make it. This goes to show that fully boiled Postum has much the flavor and richness of good coffee although it has an individuality all its own.
