Act Quickly

Act quickly in time of danger.
In time of kidney danger, Doan’s
Kidney Pills are most effective.
Plenty of Bellefonte evidence of
their worth.
Mrs. Elmer Yerger, 306 N. Beaver
St., Bellefonte, says: “About ten
years ago I had kidney trouble in its
worst form. My back was so weak I
could hardly get around. My kidneys
acted very irregularly and I was in
constant misery. Dropsical swellings |
set in. I tried different remedies but
received no benefit. Doan’s Kidney
Pills were recommended to me and I
at once began their use. In a few
days the trouble was relieved and I
continued their use for about three
months. They entirely removed the
distressing kidney disorders. My
back was strengthened and I had no
further trouble with my kidneys. I
think Doan’s are the best kidney med-
icine to be had.” (Statement given
April 22nd, 1914).
On October 18, 1918, Mrs. Yerger
said: “It is a pleasure and a great
privilege for me to again speak a
good word for Doan’s Kidney Pills.
Others in my family have since had
the same good results from Doan’s as
I had. I confirm all I said in my for-
mer statement.”

Chief of police, James M. Hume

stone. He came to see his sister, Mrs.
L. E. MacDonald, who is very ill in
Lock Haven, and called over for his

has a peculiar fascination for the kids
of Orviston, notwithstanding the fact
that it is a dangerous slide, and many
have been hurt. Those to date are
Hazel Poorman, Jim DeLong, Sam
Leathers and Torrance Barner. Lit-
tle Hazel got the worst, being in the
Lock Haven hospital a week. Tor-

eral others are nursing minor injuries,
caused by their journey down the “fa-
tal slide.”

The Successful Farmer
Raises Bigger Crops
and cuts down costs by investment in
labor-saving machinery.
Good prices for the farmers’ crops en-
have to sl
courage new investment, more production
and greater prosperity.
But the success of agriculture depends
on the growth of railroads—the modern
beasts of burden that haul the crops to
the world’s markets.
The railroads—like the farms—increase
their output and cut down unit costs by
"the constant investment of new capital.
With fair prices for the work they do,
the railroads are able to attract new capital
for expanding their facilities.
Rates high enough to yield a fair return
will insure railroad growth, and prevent
costly traffic congestion, which invariably
results in poorer service at higher cost.
National wealth can increase only as our
railroads grow.
Poor railroad service is dear at any
price. No growing country can long pay
the price of inadequate transportation
