Men and women make mistakes, but Nature nev?r does.
Her laws are as fixed as the stars. Her danger signals arc
always right. Nature's way is for women to menstruate every
28 days. If there is any impediment if the flow is scanty
her signs of danger take the shape of dizziness, rush of blood
to the" head, fainting spells, cpld feet and hands, pains under the
shoulder blades and in the sides. There is much pain and suf
fering ahead for the woman who neglects Nature's cries of
warning. Postponing things b almost suicidal. Wine of Cardui
is the assistance that Nature requires in her work of cleansing the
system, it is a medicine from the fields and the woods a veg

the organs of womanhood
alone. It is good for all
"female troubles". Its action

As for Tiburcio, he certainly did not

and he glanced with visible apprehension
at the pinto gelding pawing the earth
just outside the garden gate. There was
sense in the girl's warning. He gave a
quick glance at her and then at the old
woman blissfully slumbering ten steps
away. From these two powerless pro

On one occasion a maidservant se

a fine soldier and who seemed never to

One or two men sprang to their feet,

This progressive city of 30,000 inhabi
tants, the third in importance and
population in onr new insular posses
sion in the Antilles, seems to be grow
ing and pro-pering under the beneficent
rnle of the United States, and the peo
ple eem to be thoroughly satisfied with
the existing conditions. It is decidedly
a modern city, with clean streets, good
drainage, pure and abundant water,
street railways, newspapers, schools and
savings banks. There is a large export
trade in sugar, molasses, coffee, hides
In striking contrast with this bus
tling, np to date city is tho tiny tile
roofed hamlet of Hormigueros, about
four miles southeast of ilayagnez. It
is a spot of both historic and devotional
interest. The village, which is made
np of a few straggling, ancient and
weather stained houses, is situated on
a rough, rocky, barren mountain side
of blackened volcanic formation.
Oddly enough, it was here two de
cisive events occurred which" had a
most important bearing on the future
of Porto Rico. It was the scene of the
last of tho deadly struggles between
the armed hosts of the Castilian kings
and the snllen, retreating and defeated
aborigines, which completed Spanish
domination of the island. Almost upon
the same spot in the end of this nine
teenth century the Spanish army made
its last defiant, though ineffective,
stand in the western hemisphere.
Overlooking the straggling villago of
Hormigueros and at the end of tho
roadway leading through it stands
Montrerrate, a lofty mass of rock, np
which ascends a stairway of a hundred
steps hewn from the solid rock. These
steps lead to a small plateau formed by
cutting away the apex of a mountain
peak. This level place is surrounded
by a low stone wall, within which in
closnre stands the venerated Santuario
do Nuestra Senora de Alontserrate
the Church of Our Lady of Mcntaerrate.
It is the Lourdes of the Antilles, and to
its shrine have flocked the-faithful for
300 years, seeking healing for their
bodily infirmities. The story of its
founding is told in the old records:
"Shortly after settlement of Porto
Rico by the Spaniards a husbandman
was clearing the forest growth from
his crown grant in the wild Hormi
gueros mountains and breaking tho
soil with a rude wooden plow drawn by
a bull, when, the intense rays of a mid
day sun having made toil painful to
both man and beast, he released the
bull from the plow, in order that the
animal might seek food and water.
As soon as he obtained his freedom the
hull -turned npon his master and at
tempted to gore him to death. Vainly
did the man endeavor to avoid the at
tacks of the infuriated animal. Finding

escape impossible, he called upon the
Virgin Mary-to preserve him and prom
ised to devote his life and fortunes to
the cause of Christ if his life were
spared. Instantly the maddened bull
fell to the earth with his legs broken,
and there appeared in a resplendent
cloud of dazzling whiteness the Holy
Virgin, with the Christ Child npon her
knee. She gave to the frightened fanner
n message to build upon that spot a
sacred shrine, at which all mankind
might worship, and where the faithful
would be healed of physical ills."
The devout and believing tiller of the
soil was true to the obligation he had
entered upon and straightway com
menced to fulfill his promise. With the
assistance of his-neighbors, he cut away
the crest of the mountain and erected
of massive masonry the sanctuary of
Montserrate. The chnrcb greV rapidly
in power and influence, and its wealth
increased enonuonsly from year to
year. Miracles are said to have been
wrought within its walls, and the story
nf them spread throughout Porto Rico,
and even to the neighboring islands.
Here, it is declared, -the blind have been
made to see, the deaf to hear, the dumb
to speak and the maimed to walk.
The number and gratitude of the pil
grims is attested by gifts of gold, superb
vestments, canopies of almost priceless
valne, rare paintings and splendid al
tars. The massive iron chests in the
anteroom are filled with vast treasures,
ihe value of which is known only to
tne worthy paare in ciiarge. This is
Father Antonio Gonzalez, who has been
stationed here 34 years. He takes great
delight in exhibiting the rare treasures
of his church nnd in reciting the tales
of the miraculous cures that have been
wrought at its shrine. He is in thor
ough sympathy with American rule
in Porto Rico and is a firm friend and
admirer of Colonel Burke, who has dili
gently gnarded tile church from plnn

At the opening session, which was
held in the large schoolroom of the high
school at Sendai, a city in tho north of
Japan, an embryo member of parlia
ment presented for discussion a bill for
tLe abolition of all examinations. The
principal champion of the bill was a
young student named Kato. He spoke
for two hours in its favor, paying not
the slightest attention to the many in
terruptions which were made by the
deputies on the crowded benches. The
newspapers nest day gave a long ac
count of his speech and predicted for
him a brilliant parliamentary career if
he decided to enter public life.
The speakers who followed him were
not so fortunate. One of them indeed
was so embarrassed by the interruptions
from the benches that he lost his head
completely and was fain to turn aside
and swallow a enp of tea, nfter which
he hastily left the platform. A curions
feature of the session was tho gayety
of all those who took part in it. Stu

the grave dignitaries whom they rep

TO CURE BY DREAMS.
A Doctor's ISeIce For Making the

An English physician claims to have
discovered a new and efficacious core
for persons afflicted with nervous or
mental maladies. If such persons, he
says, can only procure pleasant dreams,
they will soon regain their health, and
his aim is thtrefore to furnish them
with delightful dreams.
For this purpose he uses a soft leath
er cap, which covers the patient's head
and ears and leaves only the face un
covered. Beside the ears are placed two
metal plates, which are joined by a
rubber tube to a phonograph. The pa
tient rests on a divan in a dark room,
and in front of him is a sort of magic
lantern, from which are projected at
brief intervals various enjoyable pic
tures. In this way, it is claimed, the
eyes of the sick person are delighted,
while at the same time his ears are
soothed by the vibrations of the phono
graph. As a result weariness comes npon him
and is soon followed by slnmber, and
it is while he is dozing in this manner
that happy dreams are evoked, thanks
to the phonograph and thestereopticon.
After this light slumber comes a deep
sleep, which, we are assured, is always
Several tests of this kind have been
made with success, and it is said that

this method, but that the patient's
