Every parent should make a spec

of the rural districts. They can send
their children to some point in the

send them abroad It simply meanB
that a county high school would re

children becoming educated that are
now, This Is worth thinking about.

today . with the United Press, Dr.
Cook announced that he will again
brave the hardships and death in lead
lng another expedition to the summit
of Mount McKlnley, for the purpose
of recoverelng the records that he
left there on hla former trip. Cook said
thut it would take him two months to

giving albumen from the blood Into
the urine, and the substitution of pois

through the system, sowing the seeds
ot disease. Loss of albumen causes
weakness, languor, depression. Uric
poisoning causes rheumatic pain, ner
vousness, nausea, cricks in the back,
gravel and kidney Btones. The proper
treatment la a kidney treatment, and
the best remedy Is Doan'a Kidney
Pills. Here is good proof in the fol

Ore., says: "I can heartily recom

recommended Doan'a Kidney Pills to
me, saying that they had been the
means of saving his life. I was In

I was convinced that they lived up
to representations. I have used Doan'a

since then and hav always received
