AGAINST DEATH DANCES.
Osage Indiana Ordered to Cease tho
Custom by Thslr Chief.
Pawhuska. O. T., Feb. 24. Chief De
bolt, the head medicine man of the
Osage tribe of Indians, and the active
politician, hus Issued an Imperative
order discontinuing death dunces in the
nation. When an Osage dlts, accord
ing to a long-established c-UHtom, all
his relatives go absolutely naked until
the death dance, which occurs thirty
days after the fatality.
This custom of going naked has
played havoc with them, making them
subject to colds that Invariably ended
In consumption. Seven per cent, of the
adults of the tribe are now in the last
stages of consumption, and it Is this
alarming fact that called forth the

From the Elmlra Gazette.
Do you know Mr. J. S. Hodder, of 214
South Main street? He has been a
business man and permanent resident
of Elmira for over twenty years. A
man whose statement cannot be dis
puted. Well, Mr. Dodder's case In a
nutshell is that he has been a sufferer
from kidney disorders, but doesn't suf
fer ;ny more. We will let 'him tell
what has brought about the change.
Here is how he spoke of his case to our
representative: "I have never been
well since the cloning: of the war, where.
In the service of my country, I con
tracted kidney and bladder disorders.
The complaint hus gradually been
growing on me. 1 had sharp pains
In the small of my, back, just
back of the hips, and when they left it
was only to be followed by a dull, heavy
pain which remained continually. I
could lie In but one or two positions in
bed or the pain would be almost un
bearable. 1 was always very Fore
over the kidneys, and the urine emitted
a strong odor. At times I felt exist
ence a task. I tried this, that and the
other thing, to no avail, and was on the
verge of giving up entirely when I saw
Dean's Kidney Pills advertised. I
thought as a last resort I would Rive
them a trial; they were highly recom
mended, and I would use just this) one
more remedy. I began takinir them,
and I am very glad indeed to give my
statement, that suffering humanity may
receive the same benefit I have. A few
doses of Doan's Kidney Pills satisfied
me they were helping me. Now the
pain Is all gone, and I am entirely -well
this, after years of sickness. My
sleep at night Is srood and refreshing.
I do not feel any more that tired feel
ing I used to on rising, all thanks due
to Doan's Kidney Pills.'.' ... -
