Testimony That Cannot
I wish to testify to the good that
your Swamp-Root did me. I was both
ered with Kidney trouble and lame
back for some three years; had taken
medicine from several doctors but
without effect. I finally tried Dr. Kil
mer's Swamp-Root, and after taking
three bottles was completely cured.
I have also recommended it to several
friends who have been completely
cured of kidney and bladder trouble.
In one case a friend of mine in Toledo
took two bottles .of Swamp-Root,
which dissolved a stone in his blad
der. He has not been troubled since.
Also a friend in Springfield, Ohio, who
was employed at the Springfield Metal-
I I!o Casket Company was completely
I cured of kidney trouble after taking
Swamp-Root. I give this testimonial
unsolicited, fcr It may be the means of
helping some one else.
Yours gratefully, %

YOU WERE VERY SILLY
DEAR MISS FAIRFAX:
I met a young man two years my
senior at a party not long ago, and
we instantly took a great liking for
each other. He asked me if he could
wear my ring, and I said yes, but to
surely give it back because it be
longed to a boy friend. It is three
weeks since then, and I have not heard
from him and can't get the ring back.
The girl who lets every stray ac
quaintance, or even a friend, borrow
her jewelry is always punished, and
deserves to be. You must buy your
boy friend another ring, and always
remember the lesson.

Cough medicines, as a rule, contain a
large quantity of plain syrup. If you
take one pint of granulated sugar, add
',i pint of warm water and stir about
2 minutes, you have as good syrup as
money could buv.
If you will then put 2 , / £ ounces ol
Pinex (fifty cents' worth) in a pint
bottle, and fill it up with tho Sugar
Syrup, you will have as much cough
syrup as you could buy ready made tor
$2.50. Take a teaepoonful every one,
two or three hours. It keeps perfectly.
You will find it one of the best cough
syrups you ever used—even In whoopinfl

24 hours. It is just laxative enough,
has a good tonic effect, and the taste
It is a splendid remedy, too, tot

Pinex is a most vaulable concentra

This plan for making cough remedy
