Catarrh of Die Head

Mr. Tom F.
Dady, No. 3
Rochester. N. Y., writes: “I was
troubled with catarrh of the head for
many years before I paid milch at-
tention to it, but .a few months ago
I was so annoyed by headaches and
difficulty in breathing through my
nose, and my eyes smarted and looked
so inflamed that I felt I must do
something to relieve this state of af-

paper, and then and there decided to
try Peruna. I am pleased to say

I have not been troubled since.”

Knowing that wolves had been^een in
the- neighborhood he went into the
house , got his shotgun and returned
tc- a wagon that was standing in the
yard and in this he concealed himself
to await the approach of Mr. Wolf.
The animal was soon within shooting
range and seeing that it was a wolf
Mr. Norman took a deadly aim and
emptied the contents of the gun into
the beast, killing him almost instant-
ly. Near neighbors who were at-
tiacted by the report of the gun, were
soon on "the scene and when they
found that Mr. Norman had killed a
wclf a collection of over $5 was made
up among them and presented to
him. ’Tis needless to state that
there was much rejoicing over the
killing of this wolf and it is hoped
that the remainder of the tribe will
meet a like fate, for their raids have
been very costly to the farmers whose
places they have visited.

The past few days of rain have
stopped farm work and oat sowing
for a time. Some have not even be-
gun to sow oats, while others have
f’nished and their oats arfe up and
looking pretty. Some seem to think
that late oats will make as well as
early oats, but if the rain don’t come
at the right time late oats ’don’t
yield much grain.
Corn planting time is almost here
and I don’t know of a single farmer
who doesn’t have to buy seed corn,

Frank Norman, who lives at Mid-

Sunday afternoon. The animal is
supposed to have been one of the
three that got away from Hack

The animals have been seen several
times and frequent hunts have been
n ade for them but without 'success.
Late Sunday afternoon Mr. Norman
happened to be out in his yard and
looking off in a certain direction he
observed an animal that he took to

Here’s one more Bonham case.
G. W.Crider, prop, furpiture store,
Bonham, Texas, says: “I suffered
from pain across my back and hips.
In the morning I was stiff and sore.
I knew the trouble was caused by
weak kidneys as the kidney secretions
were too frequent and painful in
passage. Doan’s Kidney Pills, pro-
cured at Claypool’s Drug store, went
at once to the root of the trouble.
They removed the pain in my back
and hips and the annoyance from the
kidney secretions left.”
