(ALL LSTTUIs Ata m PUstlInED BY IPECUL PZERMIIOn.)
"I cannot say enough in regard to Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
It has done me more good than all the doctors. I have been troubled with
gemie weakness in its worst form for about ten years. I had leucorrhoea
ad war so weak that I could not do my housework.
I also had falling of the womb and inflammation of the womb and ovaries.
ad at menstrual periods I suffered terribly. At times my back would ache
ery hard. I could not lift anything or do any hea-vy wort ; wa, not able tc
stand on my feet long at a time. My husband spent hand, ;&es of dollars for
doctors but they did me no good. My husbands asister wrote what tle Vege
table Compound had done for her, and wanted me to try i., but i did :not then
think it would do me any good. After a time, I concluded to try it, and I can
truly say it does all that is claimed for it. Ten bottles of the Vegetalle Com.
sad seven packages of Sanative Wash have made a new w oman of me, I have
had no womb trouble since taking the fifth bottle. I weigh more than I have

Queensland has the distinction of
being the only spot on earth where
mistresses and maids never quarrel,
and the domestic life there is de
scribed by Mrs. Douglas Campbell of
England, who has just returned from
a visit to that country, as an ideal one
In that country, she says, the do
mestic servant betters herself in every
way. She has higher wages, more
leisure, more liberty and she is cared
for better than in any other country.
The mistress assists her to establish
a home of her own, and her success
is all the easier because she can afford
to dress herself becomingly. No
Queensland mistress ever refuses her
maid permission to attend balls or to
go to concerts or theaters, and very
often the mistress does the work in or
der that her servant may have a share
in the good things of this life. Wom
en who are willing to go into the bush
and work on a station are treated with
even more consideration. There is
scarcely any difference between her
and the familyn which she lives. She
has a horse to ride, drives with the
family to church, is asked out and
taught music. Mrs. Campbell adds
that Queensland is no place for lazy
or pretentious girls. They must be
prepared to use their brains and think
for themselves, then success is certain.
"In England," she concludes, "the ser
vant is part of a system. In Australia
she is a member of the household, and
the mistress holds herself responsible
for her comfort and happiness."
The Decay or Intellect
Andrew Lang is moaning over the
decline of intellect. Why he does so
Is difficult to say, for Mr. Lang's ver'
satile and voluminous writings find a
ready market and many readers. Yet
In the Critic he discourses in this man
ner: "The human intellect, like 'th3
service,' has long been 'going to the
togs.' Old-fashioned people tell us
that 'nobody reads anything but news
papers and novels.' Many critics in
the serial reviews apologize for notic
Ing a work that is not avowedly a
work of fiction. Most reviewers have
long dropped the hypocrisy of pretend
ing to own any acquaintance with the
subjects of historical, antiquarian,
anthropological, mythological and
other erudite books. They frankly
avow their ignorance, unashamed.
Poetry is still 'a drug in the market,'
except when tome new bard is wel- I
tomed as an exquisite blend of Shake- 1
spears and Racine. 'Literary gossip' 1
is concerned only with the wealth at
tained by a few manufacturers of fus- f
tian. Lately I saw a grown man read
ing Sully's 'Memoirs.' in French, too, 1
and, like the Ancient Mariner, 'I
blessed him unawares,' so unusual was
the spectacle. The classics of all lan
guages, as a lady lately declared in a
print, have become 'glorified school

LAZY MODERN BACHELORS LOOK TO
MATRIMONY FOR COMFORT.

S Girl of Today Unsylmpathetle u. They
Really Are Never Too Old to Wed.
S This is the day of the elderly siren,
the day when middle-aged women are
heroines of actual, interesting ro
mance, consequently the blushing,
trusting, dimpled girl is losing her
hold on the hearts of mnen-modern
playwrights have for several years
been illustrating this state of affairs.
They were quick to see that the young
girl's love affairs make a very secon=
dary appeal to audiences, who follow
with absorbed attention the coquet
tish wiles of the mature widow or the
woes of a divorcee past her 40th year.
It now remains for the novelist to
catch the drift of public sentiment and
deny Miss Jane Austen'i kasertion
that no woman after passing the age
of 27 could inspire true romantic love
in the masculine heart.
In real life 50 years ago men did not
court nor love nor marry elderly Wom
en, save in sufficient humber of excep
tions to prove the rule. The young girl
ulel to be the social power. Today
her most dangerous and most numer
ous rivals in the field of flirtation and
matrimony are women over 35. A girl
used to be passe at 27; today at 47 she
enjoys almost as excellent chances of
wedding well as does her sister of 18.
At 57 one perhaps has the right to
place a spinster or widow on the list
of the has-beens, and yet statistics can
be quoted to prove how the percent
of women married after passing the
50th mile post is steadily on the in
ad. Let one look over his or her own ex
tended acquaintances to realize the
truth of this statement. On all sides,
es. from the noted second .marriage of
he Lady Randolph Churchill to the latest
tc :-erprise engagelient in one's own cir
o cl of friends, the elderly woman is

d Wherefore, indeed, has the woman

r stage, the author's brain and steal the ac

Sback of that, when the man married lo
young he took a wife who was his jun
Sior, and they found out about life and so
its ways together. She kept house and pr
r looked after the babies, and he was In
a her providence, her guide and her de- hil
Sfender. Distinctly, he married a help
meet; he was the pioneer, and she
walked in his footsteps.
Today men do not want to marry ly
working partners, but companions. The an
average man waits until he has made
his money, has had his fight with the pe
world alone, and, having lived as an Fr
independent bachelor, has a dominant Ch
yearning for comfort. The modern do
man is both lazy and selfish when it wi
comes to wedding. He desires the joys en
and shirks the responsibilities of mat- of
rimony, and this is where he turns to to
the mddle-aged woman. She has lived wa
long enough in the world to know its tht
requirements and to learn its philoso- in
phy. She is not easily jealous, is not nei
whimsical and is never exacting. She sht
has found out a great deal about men so
and knows what renders them happy; soc
she does not talk servants, run up abc
bills, quarrel with her husband's ku
mother, nor insist upon being consid- ligl
ered and entertained every moment.
She keeps house like a veteran, she be- con
lieves that little absences make the pac
heart grow fonde.', and does not, there- est
fore, forbid her husband's annual the
shooting or fishing trip with his mas- tall
culine friends. hoo
These reasons, however cogent as shil
they undoubtedly are, do not fully ex- to
plain why the middle-aged woman has but
taken the young Birls place at the al- pra
tar and fireside. The underlying cause csot

lge Ill Colonial days it was necessary
for betrothed young women to ride to
the nearest town, mounted on a pil

the fair, but quick-tempered Nancy,
went up to Boston with Eben, whom
lay she was soon to marry, and the pair
nd achieved an exhausting but satisfac

Che tol of the early evening, they started
h on their 20 mile journey home, they
carried, towed snugly away about
pocket and saddle, some dozen of
their precious purchases.
1st About half way Nancy missed a
an package, and wished to turn back and

LABOR IN CHINA,
It Varles in Eficlency According to I laoe
11d (I limate.
Labor in China varies in efficiency
according to place, and, curiously un
like Europe, seems to vary inversely
with the temperature of the climate.
At Tlen-Tsin and the northern ports m
it takes much longer to load and un
load cargo than at the ports of the
Yang-Tse, and the husbandry of the
soil shows less care in the northern a
provinces than it does lower down.
In fact, the northern seem inclined to be
hibernate, and allow the rigor of the
winter to unman them instead of o
spurring them to activity.
Still, after watching gangs of coolies gal
working in many places, it may safe- chi
ly be asserted that the average zest
and genuineness of their labor are su- to
perior to those of any nation, with me
perhaps the exception of our own.
From this it does not follow that the
Chinaman, like the London "docker," o
does not know how to play "ca canny"
when he chooses. I had the experi- n
ence of being aboard one of the last eve
of the China merchants' steamships
to leave Tongku before the Pei-Ho
was closed by ice to water traffic, and Is
the coolies employed happened to be
in receipt of monthly wages. It was d
neither their object nor their desire to F
shut down for the winter too quickly, Jv
so they resolved to take full time and
something more in getting the cargo
aboard, both from the wharf at Tong
ku and outside the Taku bar from
It chanced that this cargo mainly Cloo
consisted of peanuts for Canton, Es
packed in matted bags of the rough- fi
est make. Each bag was passed to Den
the comprador's clerk, who stuck a tt
tally into the sack. and it was then desl
hooked on by a row of coolies into the
ship's hold. Not only was it possible
to make all this a very slow process, o
but the lingering could be turned to a for
practical purpose. The hook, if judi-. s
clously inserted, caused a constant H
stream of peanuts to fall out, and FA
these were instantly stored in hand- men

Some years ago, writes a correspond

t. Who was Charles Dickens' manager,
and has just died "miserable and pen
s i nlless," in Fulham infirmary, was in a
quite respectable position, but was
fast drifting into a reckless, vagrant
life. He was fond of recalling his as
sociation with the novelist, but never
told any anecdotes about him. He
accompanied Dickens on his reading
d tours, and his services were greatly
d appreciated. On one occasion Dickens
wrote from Liverpool, "Dolby would
do anything to lighten the work, and
a does everything." In another letter
n from Glasgow, he described him as
"an agreeable companion, an excellent
manager, and a good fellow." Dolby
wrote a book entitled "Charles Dick

ens considered "the best and truest
picture of her father yet written."
