A GREAT ARMY BALLOONIST.
English Aeronaut Has Frightful Ex

Col. Templer. who has done sin h ex

South Africa, was the subject many
years ago of perhaps the most remark
able escape ever recorded iu the an
nals of ballooning, lie Is probnbly
the only man who has been carrioii
senseless to a height of more than
20.IHMI feet. To this day he bears on
his face the mark of a marvelous ex
perience he can never forget. A sud
den cust of wind had blown his com
panion from tho car. sent up tho bai
loon with the colonel alone and dash -d
the car against t.io ornamental iron
work at tho top of a gasometer. Tho
collision had a disastrous and ttgic
effect. The ropes were cut in two.
caitsirc the balloon to hang on its
side, and the whole of the unsecured
ilistin-nents to drop out. A piece of
ironwi rk cut dorp into the colonel's
lace, tearing his cheek. The balloon,
revolving rapidly in midair, rose to a
great height, the si ven d lopes tw ined
round the iidonel. suspending him in
tho most frightful position the mind
can conceive. Then thr aeronaut
fainted, and when he came to hit

character alive ntid well out of such

Women would nave time ntid much sickness if they would
write to Mrs. Pinkham for advice as soon ns any distressing symp

right road to recovery.
Mrs. Pinkham never violates the confidence thus entrusted to
her, and although she publishes thousands of testimonials from
women who have heen benefited by her advice and medicine,
never in all herexperience has she published such a letter without
the full consent, and often by sMcial request of the writer.
