The impot Unions of silk aro rapidly

nmpetlng witli l-'ranec and southern
Furopo muntrif-s, ami also with China,
.Inpnti. and India, for tho, trade, of the

in China, and authentic history note

the year V'Stu B. C. china guarded the
crt rf the manufacture Jealously, nnd
jr. was not until the third century of the
present era that .Inpan Ieaiti"d how silk
wan made. There is a legend that
Japanese reyal ptlncss, returning ftom
visit to China, concealed si vcral co
mens In her hair, and aftcrwatds taught
frier countrymen tho secret of the indn
iry as she had learned it herself. A lit
tle later the Industry travelled overland
in India, whence It went to Persia, and
was from that country tafccSi to Greece

Mr. Pinkhatn cUlws that there is a
kind of dyipapiia that is caused by a
derangement of the. female organism,
and which, while it cause a disturb
ance similar to ordinary indigestion,
cannot be reliered without a medicine
which not only acts as a stomach tonic,
but haa peculiar uterine-tonic effects
As proof of this theory we call at
tention to the caso of Mrs. Maggie
Wright, Brooklyn. N. Y.. who wu
completely cured by Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound after eyery
thing else had failed. She writes :
" For two veers I suffered with dyspepsia
woicn to aegeneraiaa my enure sriTem last l
was unable to attend to mv dally dutfes. I
felt weak and nervous, and notaing that I ate
tasted good and it raussoadliturbsiice in ray

but nothinr teemed to selo me. I wu ad-
Tietd to give Lvdia X. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound a trial, and was bappllv surprised
to nd tbat it acted like a line tonic, and in a
few days I bagaa.as SB Joy and properly digest

To the ICdlliu- of The Fiee I'resi:
There are Hundreds of young men and
women in till I'nited States to-day wl(o
ate kept fiom the isthmus of Panama
solely on account of the stories they
havu litard rceardlng the climate, fever.
and other inconveniences. Of couiee, it
is to be expected that a. country situated
only ZOO miles from the equator should
be. an thing but cold, but the evenings
am mote than a compensation for tho
days very cool and pleasant. As to the
fever, II must be admitted, that ycats aao
there was some euch epidemic, but It
would he no more, than the truth to Htata
that the mortality from the so. called yel
low lever on the Isthmus is on a par with
tho emall-pox in the Btates. Stories in
the newspapors of yellow fever ore an
cient legends, and many are taking It for
granted without inquiry that tho Isthmus
Is a fever-Infested clime..
Sixty per cent, of fever cases are due.
to the over-indulgence of rum and
bananas, and this would mean that about
1 per cent, of tho entire population die of
yellow fever each year. In the Slates
nearly U per cent, die ot pneumonia and
Many who romo here bring the Idoa
that they arc coming to an ltncivlllivil
country, but are agreeably dlsappolnti-l
on their arrival. A question might nat
urally arise hero why are there so many
of the government rniploes returnln
home. Hern aro several answers to this
question: Some wish an excuso for their
incompetency, others ars in poor health
when they leave home, and still others
are addicted to tho habit of drink. In the
latter case, malaria, as a rule, follow.
Malaria suggests to many another hor
rlble tropical disease, when in reality it
is as harmless as a cold, and lasts about
us long. C. C. AI(F.XANUF,R.
