. Doan's Kidney Pills cure such ills.
Mrs. Mary Dumgardner, of 424 Water

found Doan's Kidney Pills a remedy that

how to get relief. I procured Doan's
Kidney Pills and several members of our
family have used them with the most
gratifying mults. I took them myself
for a tired aching back and a dragging
down feeling that comes from irregular
and deranged kidneys. The results were
of the best. The aching and soreness
was banished and the kidneys were ren
dered normal. My health became better
in every way."

LONGWORTHS FIND EUROPEANS
EXTREMELY FRIENDLY TO THIS
COUNTRY REGARD AMERICANS
WITH OPEN ADMIRATION.
NEW YORK, Aug. 15. Discussing his
European trip, while in town yesterday,
Congressman Nicholas Longworth said
I did not find any of the anti-American
sentiment, which some notable Ameri
cans nave recently discovered on the
other side. On the contrary I found
everyone extremely friendly to this
country. Wherever we went we found
only the profoundest respect and ad
miration for this country and every
thing American. Industrially, they re
gard us as phenomenal, and politically
and socially tbey have nothing but re
spect Our prosperity and capacity for
development are amazing to Europeans.
The beef exposures created a sensation
in tnciand and lor a time there was
much talk concerning them. But grad
ually the feeling of resentment died out
and I do not think the incident will
have any lasting effect on the American
beef business. In Germany and France
I heard practically nothing about the
exposures, lbe matter was commented
on in the House of Commons and the
government , was asked to what use in
the array the American beef was put
There was much hysterical sentiment
but it calmed down after the action
taken by Congress. The belief there
is that the evils could and would be
remedied by publicity."

even those, and there are thousands such,
who belong to the labor unions.
Littlefield is Respected.
While we are on the subject it perhaps
would not be amiss to take a look at
this man Littlefield, whom the labor
unions are trying to defeat. The unions
have a just grievance against him, there
isn't any doubt of that. He fought the
measures they counted so essential to
their welfare, and fought them hard.
Vet Littlefield lias the respect of these
labor leader who are trying to unseat
him. Why? Because he fought them in
a straightforward, manly way. Little
field bits hard, and when he is in action
there is something about his personality
that is very irritating, that makes you
want to swear or get up and heave u
brick at him. But no one ever accuse!
Littlefield of striking an unfair blow. No
one ever accused him of having a motive
for a public course other than his con
viction of right and wrong.
Littlefield began life as a stonecutter.
He polished stones, but took little of
the polish to himself. He is rough and
angular and the sharp corners stick out
ajl over him. When other men brush
against these corners they get mad and
say things; but Littlefield doesn't care.
He is able ,of that there is no doubt.
When- be came to Congress a brilliant
sareer was predicted for him. It has
been brilliant in a way, but his speech
is too blunt arid his honesty too militant
for marked success in the House of Rep
resentatives, as now constituted.
Littlefield, .too, it ..lyould seem, belong
to this new school of politics. A great
majority 'of uie members of the House
of Representatives do not. It is not
necessary to say more. .

' '"The city charter and ordinance pro
vide that each requisition must state
the 'price of the article or property for
which such requisition is desired,' but,
the requisition for this steam roller fails
to mention any price; had the price of

roller would never have lieen purchased

"U is further provided that no pur

specifically say so, it is sound business

"It is the great men who are not
