The President says he dosen't want
office holders to be made delegates to
the Republican national convention
"whenever good men can be found who

Has every man who has managed to

Gen. Joe Wheeler says that either Ja

The crew of the 7-inch gun on the battle-ship

deeply moral, and that their religion
consists in the practical doing of good.
"A Russian," he tells our correspon

he is helping some one in need. The
preaching which contents New England

Russia." It is their profound religious
convictions which makes them intoler

Rheumatism, which does its terrible work
in the muscles, joints, and tissues, is caused by
uric acid which gathers in the blood. To get
rid of this poisonous acid which produces the
irritations, pains, agonies, inflammations, and
swellings peculiar to rheumatism, Paine's
Celery Compound should be used without
delay. No other medicine gives such prompt,
cheering, and happy results. It is the only
medicine that prevents a return of the dreaded
disease. Taine's Celery Compound braces
the nerves, the blood is quickly cleared of all
irritating poisons, tissue and muscle are built
up, and the digestive organs perfectly toned.
Do not tr;t with indifference the slightest
rheumatic symptoms; the early use of I'aine's
Celery Compound will save you w-eeks and
months of suffering. Mr. S. D. Conway,
St. Louis, Mo., was permanently cured by
Paine's Celery Compound after repeated fail
ures with other medicines and physicians; he
" I am 64 years of age, and have lived in
St. Louis 27 years, and all this time with the
exception of three years, I have served in the
Engineers' Department as Inspector. Last
winter I contracted rheumatism and was laid
up. I tried all remedies and doctors, but all
faded until I struck Paine's Celery Compound,
which has made a permanent cure in my case.
I have recommended it to many, ana mey
have used it with the same result."

The facts given below are worth a
perusal by all who ate anxious about their
physical condition or are similarly situated
to this man. It is an occurrence which can
be thoroughly investigated.
J- C. Buckler, of No. 8, East Ninth St.,
Portland, brick mason, contractor and
builder, says: "A constant soreness across
the small of my back which bothered me
when stooping or straightening up and
was accompanied with a weakness of the
kidneys particularly in evidence at night,
indicated that my kidneys were not per
forming their functions properly. I had
it for years despite all my endeavors to
get relief until oue day I read about Doan's
Kidney Pills and got a box. A few doses
convinred nip that the.
j root of the disease and the continuation of
ineir use tor a short time removed the pain
from my back and corrected the kidney se
cretions. 1 have another. box in the house '
and should necsssitv demand it 1 shall
certainly resort to the use of Doan's Kid
