We know of no other medicine which has been so suc
cessful in relieving the suffering of women, or secured so
many genuine testimonials, as nas Lydia E. Pinkham's
In almost every community you will find women who
have been restored to health by Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg
etable Compound. Almost every woman you meet has
either been benefited by it, or knows some one who has.
In the Pinkham Laboratory at Lynn, Mass., are files con
taining over one million one hundred thousand letters from
women seeking health, in which many openly state over
their own signatures that they have regained their health by
taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has saved
many women from surgical operations.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is made ex
clusively from roots and herbs, and is perfectly harmless.
The reason why it is so successful is because it contains
ingredients which act directly upon the female organism,
restoring it to healthy and normal activity.
Thousands of unsolicited and genuine testimonials such
as the following prove the efficiency of this simple remedy.
Minneapolis, Minn.: "I wnsa great sufferer from female
troubles which caused a weakness and broken down condition
of tho system. I rcud so much of what Lydlu 13, IMnklinin's
Vegetable Compound had done for other suffering women, I felt
uro it would help me, and I must say it did help nio wonder
fully. Within three months I was u perfectly well woman.
"I want this letter made nubile to show tho benefits to be
derived from Lydia K. IMnkhum's Vegetable Compound."
Mrs. JohuU.Moldau, 2115 Second HUNorth, Minneapolis, Minn.
Women who are suffering from those distressing ills
peculiar to their sex should not lose sight of these facts
or doubt the ability of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound to restore their health.

Why Do The Children Love You
As wo look at somo families whero
tho children seem to just worship
their parents, nnd ngaln wo sco oth
ere whero tho children seem to think
moro of everybody clso than Ihoy do
of their parents, nnd wo pause nnd
exclaim why Is It? I'nronts do you
wish for your children to lovo and re
spect youT If you do, when your child
comes to you for ndvlco bo suro to
glvo good ndvlco; don't say, "Oh, go
way, don't bothor me, go ak your
mother," or somo such answer. Or
It thoy como to their mother perhaps
alio says "Go to your father, I am
busy." Tho child will soon got afraid
to ask advice for fear of being rebuk
ed, and It will be npt to seek advice
somo whero else. If you take nn In-
torcst In your dhlldrcn then tboy will
take an Interest in you. Wo havo
seo little children while running at
play, or porhaps on nn orrand for
their pa routs, get n fall and bump n
head or skin a flngor, nnd when thoy
woii'd go their parents for a kind
word t comfort they would say:
"Well, next tlmo look whore you are
going and don't bo so awkward; go
long now nnd hush." That child will
vertnlnly find out sooner or later that
Uh parents havo no lovo or sympathy
for It, and It will grow up without an
kind feeling toward that parent. Hut
on tho other bnnd let tho child come
to tho parents for ndvlco, and If kind
words aro spoken tho child will never
forget It, aud will always look with
respect on that parent. It tho little
child gets a bump or a fall, or a cut
or a skinned finger, mother will say:
"Come to your tuothor aud tot hor
pot you," nnd sbo will kiss tho bump,
ed head and wrap up tho hurt finger,
with a few: kind words, Thon tho
child knows you lovo it, nnd it will
lovo you nnd always respect you, and
when years havo passed and go no an
thoy havo grown to manhood aud wo

childhood days as tho happiest days

Principles of Economy Involvtd.
The agitation for elimination of the
Jobber Is based more upon prejudice
and passion than upon 'facts. The
American people are always looking
for a shorter route to 'a desired ond.
They rare little who It eliminates Just
so It decreases their cost of living,
They care little If every link In the
chain Is broken and the manufacturer
Is allowed to supply the wants of the
trade direct. No ono else could object
to this plan of procedure If It pos
sessed any economic points to recom
mend It. Time and well ordered ei
perlnients have proven, however, that
the best, tho most convenient, the
cheapest and most serviceable method
of supplying the wanta of the consum
er Is from maker to Jobber, from Job
ber to retailer, and from retnller to
consumer. Tho opportunity for dev
ilment upon tho part of thoso who
find much of personal gain In showing
the consumer tho large number of
middlemen he Is keeping nnd that If
they be cut out be, tho consumer,
will enjoy this profit. Is great Thus
began the from factorytofamlly, cut-out-tbe-mlddle-man
argument, and It
sounds good upon the face of things,
but. ns stated above, has no real sav
ing nt all, since tho oxponse Incurred
In getting small shipments from tbo
factory to tho consumer Is greater
than tho very small per cent, oracled
by both Jobber and rotaller for their
part performed In tho transaction up
on tho old method.
