Lecause your case is a difficult one,
doctors having done you no good,
do not continue to suffer without
giving Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound a trial. It surely has cured
many cases of female ills, such as in
flammation, ulceration, displacements,
fibroid tumors, irregularities, periodic
pains, backache, that bearing-down

DO BIRDS HELP THE FARMER?
When Permitted to Labor Undis
turbed They Thoroughly Police
Both Earth and Air.
As objects of human care and inter
est birds occupy a place filled by to
other living thing, and the various
movements to protect and foster them
would be fully justified were there
no returns other than esthetic. Only
the thoughtless and the ignorant still

brief season, to be then cast aside
and forgotten, the plumage dimmed
and faded, the beautiful songs
While by no means insensible to
the higher value of birds, the farmer
who is asked to aid in measures for
their protection is entitled to inquire
as to the practical purpose they sub
serve, and how far they may be ex
pected to return his outlay of time,
trouble and expense.
Since most birds eat insects and
since many eat practically nothing
else, it is their insect-eating habits
that chiefly invite inquiry, for so ac
tive and persistent are birds in the
pursuit of insects that they constitute
their most important enemies.
When birds are permitted to labor
undisturbed they thoroughly police
both earth and air. The thrushes,
sparrows, larks and wrens search the
surface of the earth for insects and
the larvae or hunt among the leaves
and peer under logs and refuse for
them. Thus each family plays Its
part in the never-ending warfare, and
the number of Insects annually con
sumed by the combined hosts is sim
ply incalculable. It is well that this
is so, for so vast is the number of
insects and so great is the quantity of
vegetation required for their sub
sistence that the existence of every

,-reen thing would be threatened were
t not for birds and other agents spe
ially designed to keep them in
While birds are not numerous in
the sense that insects are, they exist
in fair numbers everywhere—or would
were it not for the interference of
man—and so rapid is the digestion of
birds and so perfect their assimila
tive powers that, to satisfy the appe
tite of even a small bird, great num
bers ot Insects are needed. Much of
this food Is hidden and must be
searched for; much of It is active and
must bo vigorously pursued. Hence
only by the expenditure of much
time and labor do birds procure their
daily food. With birds the struggle
for existence Is peculiarly a struggle
for subsistence; shelter is obtained
with comparative ease, and If climatic
conditions are not to their liking they
migrate to other regions.
When by reason of favorable condi
tions insects have multiplied and be
come unusually abundant, birds eat
more than at ordinary times; hence
the importance of their service during
insect invasions. It is not, however,
at such periods that their services
