-Suggestions How to Find Relief from Such
While no woman is entirely free from
periodical suffering, it does not seem to
be the plan of nature that women
Bhould suffer so severely. Menstrua

vitality. If it is painful or irregular

More than fifty thousand women
have testified in grateful letters to Mrs.
Pinkham that Lydia E. Pinkham's

It provides a safe and sure way of es

weaknesses and diseases.
The two following letters tell so con

so many remedies without help.
" I dreaded the approach of my menstrual

nacoral and am now perfectly well and free
from pain atmy monthly periods. I anvvery
grateful for what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege

Such testimony should be accepted

Miss Nellie Holmes of 540 N. Davi

Dear Mrs. Pinkham:?
" Tour medicine is indeed an Ideal medicine
for women. I sufferer? misery for years with
painful periods, headaches, and bearing-down

are natural:every ache and pain Is gone, end

Hold the Record Against Those

NO CHAMPION IN FRANCE
Great Weight of Cars and Engines
Facilitate High Speed?Fastest
Trains in America Run Between
Camden and Atlantic City?Time
Lost by Grade Crossings.
Shortening the time of running on
the Zossen Road in Germany so that
the regular schedule makes it neces
sary for the trains to maintain a speed
Of sixty-two miles ah hour, or twelve
ir.iles an hour more than the previous
speed, has again raised the question
as to what countries have the fastest
service. For years the railroad men
of Germany, France, England, and the
United States have laid claim to the
champion speed transit ,the contro
versy narrowing down to the Amer
ican and German fliers. W. A.
Schulze, in a compilation of statistics,
would make it appear that the fast
service in Germany is considerably
superior to that of the roads in the
United States, while George G. Tunell,
the champion of the American trains,
asserts that Mr. Schulze arrived with
out warrant at the astonishing con
clusion that the trains of Germany
average better in point of speed than
those of any other country.
There is no champion for France,
which for some time held the record
breaking train of the world, and even
Great Britain is not represented by
any one to uphold her claims, as was
done some years ago.
"One thing, and a very important
factor not generally recognized in dis
putes about the fastest trains, is that
the Am^xicans are seriously hampered
by the necessary slowing up at grade
crossings and that our people do not
observe or uave laws saving them
from danger and giving the trains the
right of the road. Abroad if a man
walks on the railroad track he is ar
rested and hcaviiy punished. Here if
he walks on the tracks the railroads
have to pay for his supposed value.
Even with these handicaps we still
"The Empire State Express of the
New York Central and Hudson River
Railroad has been in service since
Oct. 26, 1S91. It makes the run from
New York to Buffalo, 440 miles, in
8 hours and 15 minutes. The average
speed, including four stops, two of
them being made with a change of en
gines and with twenty-eight slow
downs for crossings, is 49.303 miles
an hour. In certain places the speed
"One reason why these remarkable
speeds' can be made with safety is
because ot the great weightVof the
engines and the cars. It is interesting
to note the> difference with the fliers
on the other side. On. our train the
weight of the cars is 227 tons, loco
motive 150 tons, the total being 427
tons. The average number of passen
gers carried each day is 400.
"Of the fast ones abroad the South
ern Express leaving Paris by way of
the Orleans Railway for .Bayonne
makes the distance of 488.01 miles
in the running time of 9 hours and 54
minutes, the average speed being
49.303 miles an hour. The weight of
the cars is but 110 tons. This is the
principal train between France and
Spain, and on an ordinary trip does
not carry over forty passengers. This
Southern express was for a while the
fastest train in the world. At that
time it completed its run in a- little
les6 than 8 hours, the average speed,
involving stops, being 54 niiles an
hour. About two years ago, this ex
press, owing to the lightness of the
cars, met with a fearful accident, and
the time was reduced for safety to
the figures I have given. Similar ac
cidents on English roads caused slow
"The East Coast Express of the
Great Northern and Northwestern
Railways running from London to
Edinburg, a distance of 393% miles,
makes the Journey In 7 hours and 45
minutes, the average speed per hour
being 50.77 miles.
"The West Coast Express, via the
London and Northwestern and the
Caledonian Railways, runs from Lon
don to Glasgow, a distance of 401%
miles in eight hours, at an average
speed of 50.18 miles an hour.
"In England one of the fastest en
gines is known as La France. She
was built in France for the Great
Western and has a record of 84.9
miles an hour on the dead level, with
out any aid from gravitation, while
drawing a 120-ton train, but her long
distance pulls do not equal some of
the special speed trains. Yes, Sir,
the fastest trains in the world are
run over the American roads.
"Let us see how the service be
tween Chicago and Milwaukee, which
Mr. Schulze deems unworthy of do
tice. compares with the service in
Germany, in point both of speed and
of distance. Of all the German trains
that find a place in Mr. Schulze's
comparisons of German and American
trains, only one, that from Witten
berge to Hamburg, shows a speed
greater than 79.1 kilometers per hour,
the speed of the fastest train be

James H. Hill's new steamship Da
kota, the largest vessel ever built in
America, and a replica of the Minne
sota, now engaged in trans-Pacific
commerce, is equipped with two dis
tinct systems of telephones, connected
with which are the newest wrinkles
in both general and marine telephony.
Telephoning at sea has never been a
success on account of vibration of the
vessel, noise of machinery, the roar of
the wind, and the admission of mois
ture to the parts.
On board the Dakota one system is
an exchange, with instruments in all
the staterooms, women's saloon,
smoke room, Stewart's department
and executive officers' cabins.
The telephone girl will be in the

will be 150 stations. If a passenger
wishes a steward he pushes a button.
On the switchboard drops a target,
disclosing the cabin number. When
"Central" inserts the plug she looks
? for a red lamp. If the red light does
not glow she knows that only a stew
ard is wanted.
If a passenger desires to talk the
receiver is raised from the hook, the
tiny electric lamp associated with
the plug reddens and the girl knows
that conversation is called for. Any
number of passengers can talk togetn
er, conducting from as many different
parts of the ship a general conversa
tion. When the Dakota I reaches her
pier a line is run aboard, enabling pas
sengers and crew to call up their
friends ashore, or vice versa.

Raw Opium From the Poppy.
The preparation of "raw" opium In
North India is, according to the Trop
ical Agriculturalist, carried out as fol
In February, as a rule, the juice
is gathered, the poppy plant being
then in full flower and of a height of
three or four feet, each stem having
from iwo to five capsules of the size
of a duck's egg. Before the capsules
are pierced the fallen petals of the
flowers are carefully gathered and
sorted according to condition, in three
grades, and then are heated over a
slow fire and formed into thin cakes,
to be used for the covering of the
drug when collected.
The pierding of the pods requires
great skill, and upon it largely de
pends the yield. The opium farmer
and his assistants each carry a small
lancelike tool, which has three or four
short, sharp prongs, and with this a
half dozen perpendicular cuts are
made, in each capsule or seed pod of
the poppy. The juice begins to flow
at once, but quickly congeals. The
day after the thickened juice is care
fully gathered, being scraped off with
a small iron trowel, and the mass
thus gathered Is put into an earth
vessel and kept carefully stirred for
a month of more, great care being
taken to have It well aired, but not
exposed to the sun.
The material is now examined by
expert testers, who determine its
grade or quality, and then the whole
is put into a large box, where it is
worked very much In the same fash
ion as baker's dough, to give it the re
quired consistency. The opium ts
now made into balls for export. The
natives wade about In the large vats
containing the paste like drug and
hand it out to hundreds of ball makers
sitting around tl.e room. Every man
? has a spherical brass cup, lined with
i poppy flower petals, before him. Into
i this is pressed the regulation quan
[ tity of opium. From this brass cup
when properly pressed, the opium ball
is transferred to another man, wlin
? gives it a coating of clay. This gives
the drug, when ready for shipment.

When well prepared in this manner,
opium will keep Its properties for
! fifteen years or more. Befnr" it can
' be used, the opium balls have to be
j broken up and further treated.

WHY KIDNEY DISEASE
Neglect of the First Warning Symp
toms is the Prime Cause of so
Many Deaths from the Dreaded
It is Easily Curable in the Early Stages.
Kidney diseases are so destructive to
human life because they do not manifest
alarming symptoms until the constitu
tion is seriously weakened and the
Btrength exhausted. Then, too often,
the remedies employed by many physi
cians are of indifferent or doubtful value,
and the patient rapidly sinks under the
disease. The wisest course is to apply a
reliable kidney and liver remedy on the
first appearance of the symptoms. A
little uneasiness in the small of the back,
digestive troubles, bowel irregularities
and disorder in the urinary organs are
matters of small moment in.the estima
tion of strong men and women, yet they
have a serious meaning. They show
clearly that the kidneys are suffering
and need help, which must be forth
coming at once to prevent serious, per
haps fatal consequences. A few doses
of Prickly Ash Bitters at this time weuld
prove of incalculable value in restoring
the weakened organs to health. An
investment of one dollar in a bottle of
Prickly Ash Bitters when the disease is
yet in the early stage will save hundreds
I of dollars in doctor's bills, besides the
suffering that would surely follow should
the disease be allowed to fasten itself in
the body. The excellent curative powei
of Prickly Ash Bitters is not confined to
the first stages of kidney disease. It is
equally efficacious in severe or chronic
cases. Physicians have used it as a last
resort, in cases that defied their best
efforts, with the most brilliant results,
and it has shown its superiority over the
many so-called kidney cures, now being
loudly advertised, in instances innu
