$500 REWARD FOR WOMEN
WHO CANNOT BE CURED.
Backed up by over a third of a century
of remarkable and uniform cures, a record
such as no other remedy for the diseases
and weaknesses peculiar to women ever
attained, the proprietors and makers of Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription now feel
fully warranted in offering to pay $500 in
legal money of the United States, for any
case of Leucorchea, Female Weakness, Pro
lapsus, or Falling of Womb which they
cannot cure. All they ask i3 a fair ana
reasonable trial of their means of cure.

easy about him. We began uning Cham

finding it such a reliable remedy for
colds and croup, we have nevar been
withrut it in the house since that time.
We have five children and have given it
to all of tbem with good results. One
good feature of this remedy is that it is
not disagreeable to take and our babies
really like it. Another is that it is not
dangerous, and there is no risk from
giving an overdose. I congratulate you
upon the success of your rumedy." For

The Cause of Many
There is a disease prevailing in this
country most dangerous because so decep
deaths are caused
by it heart dis
heart failure or
p apoplexy are often
the result of kid
ney disease. If
kidney trouble is
allowed to advance
blood will at
tack the vital organs, causing catarrh ol
the bladder, or the kidneys themselves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
Bladder troubles almost always result
from a derangement of the kidneys and
a cure is obtained quickest by a proper
treatment of the kidneys. If you are feel
ing badly you can make no mistake by
taking Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the
great kidney, liver and bladder remedy.
It corrects inability to hold urine and
scalding pain in passing it, and over
comes that unpleasant necessity of being
compelled to go often through the day,
and to get up many times during the
night. The mild and the extraordinary
effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized.
It stands the highest for its wonderful
cures of the most distressing cases.
Swamp-Root is pleasant to take and is
sold by all druggists in fifty-cent aud
one-dollar size bottles. You may have a
sample bottle of this wonderful new dis
covery and a book that tells all about it,
both sent free by mail. Address, Dr. Kil
mer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y. When

offer in this paper. Don't make any

Maple Lane Explanation Note,
At the last grange meeting it wai
voted to hold a pie social on Saturday
evening, Jan. 9th, and a committee was
appointed to look after the matter. Af
ter the meeting it seems that a few took
it unto themselves to have a dance that
evening at the hall without the author
ity from the Grange, or pnrmiBion from
the trustees of the hall. When the
trustees heard of this, combined with
conduct of some at the last dance held
at the hall, they decided it would net be
I wise to permit dancing that evening.
This was brought about solely by the
conduct of the dancers, and there is no
one else to blame.
Theobiectof the Grange is education
al. This cannot be carried out except
by work with and by the young. We
wish every respectable, intelligent
young person to j )in us and we will en
deavor to instruct, interest andatnu:e.
