HUMANITY NOW LONGER LIVED.
You won't tell your family doctor
the whole story about your private
illness you are too modest. You
need not be afraid to tell Mrs. Pink
ham, at Lynn, Mass., the things you
could not explain totho doctor. Your
letter will bo held in the strictest con
fidence. From her vast correspond
ence with sick women during the
past thirty years she may have
gained the very knowledge that will
help your case. Such letters as the fol
lowing, from grateful women, es
tablish beyond a doubt the power of
to conquer all female diseases.
Mrs. Norman R. Barndt, of Allen
town, Pa., writes :
"Ever since I was sixteen years of
ape I had Buffered from an organic do
rangement and fcmalo weakness; in
consequence I had dreadful headaches
end was extremely nervouB. My physi
cian said I must go through an opera
tion to get well. A friend told mo
about Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, and I took it and wrote you
for advice, following your directions
carefully, and thanks to you I am to
day a well woman, and I am telling
all my friends of my experience."
FACTS FOR SICK WOMEN.
For thirty years Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound, made
from roots and herbs, has been the
standard remedy for female ills,
and has positively cured thousands or
women who have been troubled with
displacements, inflammation, ulcera
tion, fibroid tumors, irregularities,
periodic pains, backache, that bearing-down
feeling, flatulency, indiges-tion,dizziness,ornervousprostration.
Dispenser of Kisses.
A Frenchman, who apparently has
been amusing himself by reckoning
up the number of kisses he has given
his wife during the first 20 years of
his married life.
He finds that in the first year ho
dispensed about 100 kisses a day, or,
say, allowing for birthdays and legal
and church holidays, about 36,700 in
In the second year this number was
reduced by half, and in the third
year to ten a day, while in the fifth
year his better half had to be content
with two a day, one in the morning
and one In the evening.
What happened after the fifth year
Is "wrapped in mystery," but at the
same rate of "progression" he prob
ably arrived eventually at one kiss on
the first of January every leap year.

Statistics Do Not Bear Out Statement
That Man Is Deteriorating.
A German scientist, Dr. Emll Kontg,
has lately undertaken to prove that
In highly civilized countries man has
abused his constitutional strength,
and consequently Is more susceptlblo
to disease than he was in earlier
times. There Is obviously something
to bo said for this averment, but, con
sidered as a whole, the fucts do not
bear It out.
It is unquestionably true that as
civilization advances human life be
comes more complex, and the pres
sure upon a man's physical resources
tends to become more Intense. It is
also true that certain forms of disease,
such, for Instance, as cancer and heart
weakness, appear .to be more preva
lent than thoy were a century ago
wo say "appear," because only in a
comparatively recent period have the
statistics of mortality and its causes
been trustworthy and exhaustive.
The olllcial records of Geneva, which
havo been kept carefully for a long
period, prove that the average dura
tion of human life Is materially great
er than It was 150 or 100 years ago.
Not only the average length of human
existonce, but the retention of physical
and Intellectual vigor, or what Is
called the prime of life, tends to be
prolonged. The ago limit of useful
ness has In practice been pushed for
ward. The fruitful activity of men over GO,
and oven 70, years of age Is a phe
nomenon far more frequently observed
to-day than it was 100 years ago. Na
poleon's career was over at 4G; Von
Moltke's can scarcely be said to havo
begun, so far ns great achievements
were concerned, till he was nearly 70.
What Is true of war is true of diplo
macy, of law, of medicine, of every
field of work In which mental and
physical energy is indispensable.
When, In a word, we examine impar
tially all the data, weighing accurate
ly all the evidence pro and con, wo
seem Justified In taking an optimistic
rather than Dr. Konlg's pessimistic
view of the effect of civilization on tho
bodily well-being and longevity of
Some Fast-Day Superstitions.
In Armenia, fasts, both of necessity
and of choice, are very general, and
strictly observed. The most common
length of time for abstinenco from
food is seven days.
Throughout thiB long period the Ar
menians, imbued with religious fever,
partake of no food. Only In the caso
of tho young unmarried woman is
any concession allowed.
The young men, on the seventh day
of their fast, are allowed, by old and
sacred custom, to eat a little cake, free

By this meanB dreams of pure,
sparkling, fresh water will be certain
to visit the young man.
A strange superstition is connected
with these visions. The dreamer will
see a maiden approach the stream,
and she will carry him a jug, filled
to the brim with sparkling water.
Tho dream maiden will be the girl
whom Fate has decreed ho shall

Armenia wherever the habit of fast

"Some two months ago I had a hu

beefsteak, all red, and no ono knows
how they itched and burned. They
were so swollen that I could not get
my shoes on for a week or more. I
used five or six different remedies and
got no help, only when applying them
the burning was worse and the Itching
less. For two or three weeks tho suf

tlmo 1 did not sleep an hour at a time.
Then one morning I tried a bit of
Cuticura. From tho moment It touched

went down and in two days I had my
shoes on and was about as usual.
