TIRED, SUFFERING WOMEN. Women run down and endure daily tortures through neglecting the kid» neys. Kidney backache makes house#work a burdeu; rest is impossible; sleep fitful; appetite gives out and you are tired all the time. Can't be well until the kidneys are well. Use Doan's Kidney Pills, which have restored thousands of suffering women to health and vigor. Mrs. William Wallace, of IS Capitol street. Concord, N. H., says: "I was in the early stages of Bright's Disease, and were it not for Doan's Kidney I'ills I would not be living to-day. Pain in the back was so intense that at night I had to get out of bed until the paroxysm of pain passed away. 1 was languid and tired and hadn't the strength to lift a kettle of water. I could not work, but a few doses of Doan's Kidney I'ills relieved me, and two boxes absolutely cured me." A TREE TRIAL of this great kidney medicine which cured Mrs. Wallace will be .nailed to any part of the United States. Address Foster-Mil-burn Co.. BmTalo, X...

AGRICULTURAL. DRESSED POULTRY. Killing, Plucking nn<l Packing For Kx port or Loral Shipment. The preparation and shipping of dressed poultry are subjects considered In a bulletin of the Agricultural College of Ontario. Either of two methods of killing may be practiced. The first is to kill by bleeding, making u sharp, deep cut with a knife in the roof of the mouth just below the eyes. The second Is the wringing and pulling of the neck. The chicken is taken in the hands, the neck is stretched, the crown of the head being held In the palm of 1(1 THE SHAPING BOARD. the hand, i.nd a quick turn upward with a steady pull at the same time is given. This method is cleaner than bleeding. Exporters are reported as favoring it They claim that the flesh will not be so dry and will keep longer than is the case w hen the fowl is bled. Immediate plucking is recommended, for not only is plucking more laborious after the bird has become cool, but the skin is much more likely to become tor...

VOL. T. NO. 27. JAPANESE TAKE Sill YEN Kuroki's Army Takes Another Step in Advance. ftUBSIANS PUZZLED OVER MOVE. Think It Is Only a Feint to Distract Attention From Relief of Port Arthur. The Japanese forces under Gen. Kurokl have occupied S'iu Yen, west of Fung-Wang-Cheng, on the road to Niuchwang, driving out the Russians. The occupation of the town was accomplished only after stubborn fighting that lasted throughout the day, June 8. That the losses were severe on the Russian side at least is evident from Gen. Knropatkin's report of the engagement, but the number of men lost Is not intimated In the text of the dispatch made public. What Kuroki'B plans are now Is the subject of much conjecture In St. Petersburg. Slu Yen gives opportunity for 'advance in three directions — on Hal Cheng, on Kai Ping, or on Nluchwang. One conjecture here Is that Kuroki's activity Is merely a feint to'distract the attention of the Russian army from the relief of Port Arthur and atiother is that he 'is ...
