Women Who Enow the Laws of Nature and Obey

Mrs. Plnkham Bays When We Violate Nature's L|«I'
Our Punishment Is Fain—If We Continue
to Neglect the Warning We Die.
Providence has allotted us each at least seventy
years in which to fulfill our mission in
life, and it is generally our own fault if
we die prematurely.
Nervous exhaustion invites disease.
This statement is the positive truth.
When everything becomes a burden
and you cannot walk a few blocks
without excessive fatigue, and yon
break out into perspirations easily,
and your face flushes, and you grow
excited and shaky at the least provoca
tion, and you cannot bear to be
crossed in anything, you are in dan
ger your nerves have given out you
need building up at once! To build
up woman's nervous system and re
store woman's health, we know of no better or more inspiring medicine than
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. Your ailment taken in time can be
thrown off, ifjieglected it will run on into great suffering and pain.
Here is an illustration. MBS. LUCY GOODWIN, Holly, W. Va., says:
I suffered with nervous prostration, faintness, all-gone feeling and palpi
tation of the heart. I could not stand but a few moments at a time without
having that terrible bearing-down sensation.
"When I commenced taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound I
only weighed 108 pounds', and could not sit up half a day before, however, I
had used a whole bottle* I was able to be about. I took in all about three bot
tles of the Compound, and am entirely cured now I weigh 131 pounds and feel
like anew woman, stronger and better than ever in my life."
So it transpires that because of the virtues of Mrs. Pinkham's wonderful
Compound, even a very sick woman can tie cured and live to a green old age.

An immense golden eagle was cap

spectators, dropped a little strychnine
into the cage, and the eagle ate thereof
and was no more.

of which was an attack on Judge Pol
lock, where Crum called him a cur and
other choice names in open court. The
court at the time sentenced Crum to
8200 fine and a jail sentence. The
whole matter will probably be brought
to the supreme court for settlement.

Minneapolis Journal: J. S. Green of
Mandan is no longer in danger of pun
ishment for contempt for failure to turn
over certain partnership property to the
receiver of a business in which he was
interested. Owing to an extended ab
sence, Mr. Green was unable to comply
with an order of the Hennepin courts,
and contempt proceedings were insti
tuted. A hearing was finally secured'
when Mr. Green agreed to secure cer
tain property he had disposed off, as he
claimed, to good advantage. The re
ceiver was not satisfied,.and demanded
its surrender. In view of the return
now made by Mr. Green, the court has
discharged the contempt proceedings.
