I "Do you know of any woman who ever received any
benefit from taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound ? "
If any woman who is suffering with any ailment peculiar
to her sex will ask her neighbors this question, she will be
surprised at the result. There is hardly a community in
this country where women cannot be found who have been
restored to health by this famous old remedy, made
exclusively from a simple formula of roots and herbs.
During the past 30 years we have published thousands
of letters from these grateful women who have been cured
by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and never
in all that time have we published a testimonial without
the writer's special permission. Never have we knowingly
published a testimonial that was not truthful and genuine.
Here is one just received a few days ago. If anyon?; doubts
that this is a true and honest statement of a woman's experi
ence with Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound write
and* ask her.
Houston, Texas.-" When I first began taking Lydia E. Pink
haui's Vegetable Compound I was a total wreck. I had been
sick for three years with female troubles, chronic dyspepsia,
and a liver trouble. I had tried several doctor's medicines, but
nothing did me any good.
" For three years I lived on medicines and thought I would
never get well, when I read an advertisment of Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound, and was advised to try it.
" ?tly husband got me orie bottle of the Compound, and it did
me so much good I continued its use. I am now a well woman
and enjoy the best of health.
"I advise all women suffering from such troubles to give
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial. They won't
regret it, for it will surely cure you."-Mrs. Bessie L. Hicks,
819 Cleveland St., Houston.
Any woman who is sick and suffering is foolish surely
not to give such a medicine as this a trial. Why should it

In North Carolina says:
"My mather, since brr early child
hood, waa an inveterate coffee drink
er, and had been troubled with her
heart for a number of yuars, and com
plained of that 'weak all over' feeling
and sick stomach.
"Some time ago I was making an
official visit to a distant part of the
country and took dlnne*- with one of
the merchants of the pl .v.: I noticed
a somewhat peculiar flavour o? the
coffee, ind asked him concerning lt.
He replied that it was Postum.
"I was so pleased with lt, that af
ter the meal was over, I bought a
package to carry home with me, and
had wife prepare some for the next
meal. The whole family liked it so
well that we discontinued coffee and
used Postum entirely.
"I bad really been at times very
anxious concerning my mother's con
dition, but we noticed that after using
Postum for a short time she felt so
much better than she did prior to its
use. and had little trouble with her
heart and no sick stomach, that the
headaches were not sc frequent, and
her general condition much improved.
This continued until she was as well
and hearty as the rest of us.
"I know Postum has benefited my
self and the other members of the
family, but not in so marked a degree
as in the case of my mother, as she
was a victim of long sanding."

"Good. The school is close at

have you had?"
"It has been rather irregular. I've
been to school every winter and this
spring I had a three-months' chance
The boy smiled faintly.
"There was nobody else available."
The man looked at the boy with
"I'm sorry you haven't any recom
mendations," he said.
The boy drew a neat little packet
of papers from his inner coat pocket.
"I have a few lines from the school
trustees and a kindly word or two
from the minister who has known
me since I was born, and to-whom
it-may-concern from Judge Oliver, of

boy replied. "I left my valise at the ,
The man stared again.
"Very well," he said.
For several days the man saw very
little of the boy.
He noted, however, that the grass
had never looked in better condition
and that the horse and phaeton left
nothing to be desired along the lines ,
of cleanliness. <

he asked his wife.

"Steady, Caroline," said the man. ?
"You mustn't let your kindly im

The next afternoon he encountered
the boy near the gate. The boy had
a black eye, an unmistakable black
At the dinner table the man looked
across at his wife.
"Has our protege been fighting?"
"Yes," his wife replied.
"He tuld you about lt?"
"Yes. And it isn't to his discredit,
"The black eye?"
"The entire affair."
"But you have only heard the boy's
side of the story.
The lady smiled.
"That's all I want, Henry." Eut
Henry shook his head.
The next morning Stephen Bruce's
employer had a call from Judge Dan
iel Strong, of the district court.
"I've come on a rather peculiar er
rand, Appleton," he said as he took
a proffered chair. "My boy Jim came
home last night pretty badly battered
up. He ls at the Jefferson high
school, you know, and neither hin
mother nor myself could get a wore,
out of him. Well, I did a little de
tective business and found out tha<:
he had been fightingwith a boy named
Stephen Eruce, who is said to be
your hired man. Is tbere such a man
in your employ, Appltton?"
Henry Appleton stiffened a little.
"A boy of that name works about
my premises and attends the Jeffer
son high. He is eighteen and con
siderably lighter than your Jim. [
can't believe he would fight against
"Did you see the boy last night?"
"Yes, and I noticed he had a blade
"Is that all?"
"The.t's all I noticed. He attended
to his work as usual."
The judge shook his head.
"And you are sure he is not a big
quarrelsome brute with brass knuc
kles, or something of that sore?*'
Henry Appleton frowned.
"He is a quiet, well behaved boy,"
he answered. "Do you want me to
talk to him?"
"Not; until I talk to Jim," replied
the Judge. And he went away, look
o to College With
e' s Jim,
aland Plain Dealer.;
That night Henry Appleton told his
wife about the call.
"Well," she said, "111 tell you
what Stephen said. He confessed he
had been fighting, and that he was
heartily ashamed of lt. But, he
added, it couldn't be helped. The
fight was forced on him and the only
way In which he could retain his
place in the school was to resent the
treatment he had received from some
of the pupils. If I thought he had
done wrong he would go away."
"And what did you do?" Henry
"I gave him a lotion for his eye,"
the lady replied.
The next morning Judge Strong
"Did you speak to that boy of
yours, Appleton," he asked.
'Tm glad of it. I had a talk with
Jim. 'Jim,' I said, 'you had a fight
at school the other day.' Jim ad
mitted it. 'You fought with a boy
ramed Stephen Bruce.' Jim ad
mitted the charge. 'And he whipped
you?' Jim nodded. 'Yes,' he re
plied, 'he whipped me. And he can
whip any boy in school.' " The judge
looked hard at Appleton. "Do you
know that that pleased me," he said.
"It did me good to find out that Jim
had the moral courage to admit his
defeat. Jim has been a pretty diffi
cult proposition for us, as I suppose
you know.1 He has neglected his
E tudies and run pretty wild. But we
won't admit that he is really bad.
He's just foolish arid wayward."
"Of course," said Henry Appleton.
"I guess I won't say anything to
The judge suddenly laughed.
"I hope he won't insist upon teach
ing my boy prize fighting. What do
you know about him as a scholar?"
"Nothing. All the curiosity along
that line is confined to my wife. I'll
ask what she knows."
He told his wife what the judge
had said and she laughed over it.
"Now I'll tell you what Stephen
told me about the trouble," she said.
"I judge from what he said that the
atrnntr hov is the bully of the school.
Lt waa tue uu.j_
told me. He said his connection witu
the school would have been unendur
able if he had let the Strong boy con
tinue to tyrannize over him."
Henry Appleton laughed.
"And where did our Stephen ob
tain his unusual prowess?" he asked.
"He taught a district school," his
wife answered. "And he had to whip
avery one of the big boys before he
could establish his authority, and
some of them were as big as full
grown men. And after he had
whipped them all he had no more
Henry Appleton laughed again.
"Our Stephen grows more and
more interesting," he said. "And
iidn't the worthy principal find out
about this little scrap in the grove?"
"Yes, Stephen told him."
"Stephen went to the principal
next day and .told him he had vio
lated one of the school rules and was
very sorry. 'Is that the cause for
your black eye?' the principal asked.
Stephen told him it was. 'What was
the name of the other boy?' the prin
cipal asked. Stephen said he couldn't
tell him that. 'Then run along,'
said the principal, 'and don't forget
that you have two examinations to
morrow.' And Stephen has heard no
more about the fight."
"I'd like to know who told the
principal?" said Henry Appleton.
"Stephen didn't know."
"I wonder If it could have been
"I hope it was," said his wife.
"Whosoever told was careful not to
throw any blame on Stephen."
"Which, of course, is greatly to his
credit," said Henry Appleton. "And
I hope it was Jim Strong."
Henry Appletop was a busy man.
His work required close attention.
He was quite too busy to interest him
self in Stephen Bruce.
One night his wi?e told him that
Stephen wanted a favor.
"Let's hear it," Appleton re
"He wants you to let him use the
upper room .of the stable. He has
cleaned lt out nicely. He wants to
have a school friend or two visit him
"He'll set fire to the place won't
"He seems careful."
"Very well. Tell him he can use

So that was settled and then Henry
Appleton forgot all about it.
But one morning Judge Strong
came into his office.
"How are you, Appleton? I
dropped in on a little personal busi

The judge hesitated.
"It's about Jim," he said.
"I don't know."
"But I thought Jim was doing bet

reform would be permanent."
"And what is the trouble?"

"Yes yes," said the judge. "Where

"On my porch. Be there at S.30."
"All right," said the judge.
It was a dark evening and the two

They stole around the house and

sta.ble," he whispered. "Help me

the ladder to the window.
"I'll go up first," said Appleton.
He climbed the ladder slowly and
noiselessly and peered through the

minutes. Then he rejoined the judge
at the foot of the ladder.
"It is just what I suspected," he
gravely whispered. "Climb up care

"For me!" snapped Stephen. "Do

"You're an awfully good fellow."

boy, "and get back to your problem.'^.

Mon. Puiseux, the distinguished

the curious rays or bands, extending
in straight lines away from many lu
nar craters, such as the celebrated
Tycho, were produced by the deposi
tion of volcanic ashes carried to great
distances by the winds that happened
to prevail when the eruption oc
curred. He accounts for the relative
narrowness of these bands, which are
never more than thirty miles broad,
although their length is sometimes
many hundred miles, by supposing
than only the central axis of the de
posit has remained, the less dense
borders having been destroyed by the
denuding forces of the air, when the
moon had a considerable atmosphere.

Wash Dark Dresses.
The girls who think that because a

washing have something to learn
about cleanliness. Clothes should not
be washed simply because they look

Watch Your Cellar Closely.
Learn to visit your cellars every
morning. Look over everything;
pick out the decayed particles and see
that mould is not accumulating. One
mouldy potato will cast spores in suf
ficient number to keep you white
washing for a year. Remember,
mould is as contagious as smallpox.
Sunlight destroys all forms of mould;
hence, see that the closets in which
you keep food, and the boxes and bar
rels in which fruit and vegetables are
kept, aro well aired and that the sun
light is allowed to enter the cellar.
To Dust a Room.
Some women who are housekeep
ers, and who claim to be adepts in
.the management of a house, wonder
why they cannot get rid of the ac
cumulation of dust in their rooms.
They dust every day, they will tell
you, but there always seems to be an
ever-increasing amount, even in the
face of all their precautions.
The trouble is that some women do
not know how to dust properly. They
flirt a feather duster at every orna
ment and article of furniture in the
room, and think they have done the
-'."?"sting in this way
ened with water ana yet nave no -ug
gestion of being wet; used this ?ray,
lt will gather up ' and hold all the
dust and keep it from flying about
the room. Go over every bit of fur
niture in the room, taking care to
wipe open-work carvings and out-of
the-way places around about the
woodwork. All small articles should
be lifted from tables and cabinets,
and the places where they stood dust
ed with the cloth, instead of wiping
around them. A good way to dust
the walls and ceilings is .to cover the
head of the broom with a piece of
canton flannel, the nap side out, and
use it'as a mop."
This woman has followed this
method of dusting during a long per
iod as a housekeeper, and she de
clares that while her way entails a lit
tle more work; it Is more thorough
and the rooms are delightfully fresh
and clean when the work ls finished.
When furniture is to be dusted a
little kerosene oil may be put in the
water in which the dust cloth is
wrung. This will impart a polish to
the furniture.-Trenton American.

Been .Received by Churches.
the church has been far more favor
able than I had any right to expect,"
writes Rev. Elwood Worcester, D.D.,
in a discussion of "The Emmanuel
Movement" in thc .Century. .
"It ls true that we have met with
opposition, hut, on the whole, with
far more acceptance than opposition.
Hundreds of clergymen of all evangel
ical denominations have visited Bos
ton, have attended our schools, stud
ied our methods and are reading our
statements, not with a view to form
ing clinics and classes, but to deepen
and strengthen their own ministry.
When our work first began to at
tract attention, a general apprehen
sion was felt that many other clergy
men, excited by v/hat success we had
met with and without our prepara
tion, would rush into this work, to
the injury of the church and to the
detriment of the community. Two
years and a half have passed, and
this expectation has not been real
ized. There are at present about a
dozen cleigymen in the United States
who have announced themselves as
willing to treat certain forms of func
tional disorders by the advice of phy
sicians. Wttli scarce an exception,
there are picked men of scientific
training and of experience in deal
ing with mon and women.
"The opposition we have encoun
tered in the church has come in every
Instance from men who have reached
a time of life when opinions are crys
talized and lt is difficult to accept
anything that is new. Their real
quarrel is not with us or our work,
but with the new spirit that is pass
ing over the world of thought, which
they are unable to grasp. They
stand in the presence of the most re
markable religious awakening that
has ever taken place in this country,
but they stand helpless either to
guide it or to oppose it. They feel
the cold breath of a new day, but it
comes too late for them. This move
ment springs from a new motive
the application of psychological prin
ciples to the problem of- religion. It
rests in part on the recognition of
powers within the soul of which we
were not formerly aware."
Quaint Injunction in Will.
The quaint testamentary injunction
cf an eighteenth century gardener
and botanist was last evening ob
served for the ISOth successive year
at Shoreditch Parish Church, when
what is known as the "vegetable lec
ture" was preached by the vicar, the
Rev. E. R. Ford. In 1729 Thomas
Fairchild died at the age of sixty
three years and bequeathed ?25 to
the church wardens of Shoreditch,
stipulating that the interest should
be paid each Whit Tuesday for the
delivery by a selected preacher for
an address on "The wonderful works
of God in creation, or the certainty
of the resurrection of the dead by
certain changes of the animal and
vegetable forms of the creation."
Fairchild had extensive gardens in
the days when "the Hoxton hamlet"
was noted for its productions, and
he introduced many varieties of for
eign fruits and flowers. In the bor
ough council's small public garden
In Hackney road, close to the church,
there is a tombstone recording the
injunction as to the lecture.-Lon
