""Harrisburg, Pa., we passed close to the

noon which ended the trip across the

the most modern and fully equipped

So mush- for the trip, and now we will
endeavor to give you a brief and graph
ic description of the sights and inci
dents accompanying our tay In New
New York City Is very busy, very
large and very noisy, but, in spite of ml
this, n very beautiful and instructive
place. The constant clatter of surface
truffle, the ceaseless rumble ol elevated
trains overhead and the never ending
rush of subways underneath greatly
confuse a new comer. The first Inter
esting sight was the Woolworth Build
ing rearing its lofty head Oj stories In
the Hlr and resembling a mammoth
marble monument piercing the sky.
During our stay in New York City we
saw the Aquarium at Btttery Park
which Is a two story round building
containing every description of fine
hih from the miniature fishes to the
large seals. One fish in particular,
which is very Interesting, wasthe horse
fish which Is very small, having a horse
shaped hoad and a curved tall, and re
sembling closely in appearance, the
pawns used on a chess board. We aho
saw at Battery Park the emigrants
landing from foreign shores after hav
ing passed examination at Ellis Island.
The men wSrc costumes peculiar to
the foreign countries, while the women
wore briljiant and gaudy van coloted
Another day was spent at the Art
Museum, which contains innumerable
master-pieces of art, handiwork, tc
gether with ancient and historical rel
ics. It takes about thr-e weeks to see
the full collection. We next visited
the Museum of Natural History, occu
pying one square block tind to wh ch
an immense addition is being built on.
This building is four stories high and
contains stuffed birds, animals and fish
of nil sorts, and nlso a very valuable
collection of precious stones. Several
ancient mummies are exhibited in this
building together with relics found in
Indian mounds, These mummies are
estimated by scientists to be hundreds
of years old. The old custodian of this
building stated that a young professor
had spent over a year in the building
and had not yet acquired a complete
knowledge of the contents.
We also spent one afternoon at he
Hippodrome which is another building
o:cupylng a square block. This is a
massive theatre building standing five
stories high. They are now playing
the descriptive show, entitled "Under
Many Flags." The stage Is of enor
mous proportior s and would make four
ordinary stages. It is convexed, and
the curtain drops instead of rising.
In the course of the performance,
each country was represented and
there were at least I4 horses on the
stage at one time beside the, thousand
or more actjrs and the heavy settings.
The seating capacity of the theatre is

Women Are Constantly Being Restored to

" Worth jnountams ot gold, says' one woman. Another
says, "I would not give Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound for all the other medicines for women in the
world '' Still another writes, " I should like to have the
merits of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound thrown
I' pn the sky with a searchlight so that all suffering women could
f j read and be convinced that there is a remedy for their ills."
We could flll a newspaper ten times the size 01 tins with sucn quo
tations taken from the lettors we have received from grateful women
whosoohealth lias been restored and suffering banished by Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Why has Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound accomplished
such a universal success? Why has it lived and thrived and kept on
doing its gloriou3 work among the siok women of the world for more
than 30 years ?
Simply and surely because of its sterling Worth. The reason nov
other medicine has ever approached its success is plainly and sim-v
ply because there is no other medicino so good for women's ills.
Hero are two lettors that just came to the writer's desk only two
of thousands, but both tell a comforting story to every suffering wo
man who will read them and bo guided by them.
