A crowd of about 40 left Friday after- noon for Del Norte to attend the Teach- ers' Assocmtion and to witness the basket ball and foot ball games. The basket ball was called at2:30 with Miss Blank and J. R. Morgan as referee and umpire. In the first half Saguache did not score, Del Norte throwing seven baskets. Daring the second half the S. C. H. S. girls played a much better game, :throwing one basket and holding Del Norte down to one. Our girls had im- proved wonderfully over their first game but D. N. also played a better game than they did at Saguaehe, The foot ball game proved quite excit- ing throughout. The S. C. H. S team was at a disadvantage, two of their regu- lar men disappointing them at the last moment, their places being filled by two grammar room boys. During the first half Saguache had sligi}tiy the best of it, but neither ~eam were able to score. In the second half the chances for a touch- down by Saguache were good, but with- in tea minutes Capt. Slote was compell- ed to leave the field and tmmediately after Del Norte scored a touchdown, fail- mg an easy goal. The game was a clean one throughout, and there was no wrang- liwg on etther side. The game was ref- ereed by Jesse g Morgan, \V. Thomas actetl its3 uutpire.

Kidney Trouble Makes You Miserable. Almost everybody who reads the news- papers is sure to know of the wonderful cures made by Dr. ~Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kidney, liver and bladder remedy. It is the great medi- cal triumph cf the nine- ~teenth century; dis- covered after years of scientific research by Dr. Kilmer, th~ emi- nent kidney and bDd- der specialist, and is wonderfully successful in promptly curing lame back, kidney, bladder, uric acid trou- bles and Bright's Disease, which is the worst form of kidney trouble. Dr. Kfimer's Swamp-Root ts not rec- ommended for everything but if you have kid- ney, liver or bladder trouble it will be found Just tbe remedy you need. It has been tested in so many ways, in hospital work, in private practice, among the helpless too poor to pur- chase relief and has proved so successful in every case that a special arrangement h~s been made by which all readers of this paper who have not already tried it, may have a sample bottle sent free by mail, also a book telling more about Swamp-Root and how to find out if you have kidney or bladder trouble.
