H. Smith lost four head of horses last -a yearling, one two-yearold, one of his best work horses, and the old grey family driving mare. It bas been reported that they were bitten by a mad dog. Such is not the case Ant least Mr. Smith has no such idea.

At Quenemo two tickets are in the flela, the citizens ticket and tho people's ticket. The first favors licensing joints and billiard halls, the latter is opposed to both.

Logan heads the "joint" ticket and J. A. Parkinson the temperance ticket. Our opinion is, it would be a bad move to license billlard halls and saloons; the damage would be much greater than the benefits. Cyclone.

M. FENNER, Dear 1887 I had been afflicted with a complication of ailments. inclu ling pain in left side, kidney and bladder trouble and leucorrhoea. I lost flesh and became SO miserable that I could not be around. In this distressed condition I sought the aid of an eminent physician, but he did not seem to be able to find a remedy that would reach my case, and I received no benefit.

Finally I was advised to try your Kidney first and Backache Oure. I felt better the day after beginning its use. Within three days I was much better and by the time one bottle was taken I was wholly relieved. A slight return a few months later was cured by one-half bottle of No return since. A.
