All manner of extravagant expressions are possible when
a woman's nerves are overwrought.
The spasm at the top of the wind pipe or bronchial tubes,
"ball rising in the throat," violent beating of the heart,
laughing and crying by turns, muscular spasms (throwing
the arms about), frightened by the most insignificant occur
rences-are all symptoms of a hysterical condition and se
rious derangement of the female organs.
Any female complaint may produce hysterics, which
must be regarded as a symptom only. The cause, however,
yields qlickly to Lydia E. Pin!rham's Vegetable Com
pound, which acts at once upon the organ afflicted and the
nerve centers, dispelling effectually all those distressing

to get the right advice about all female troubles. Her ad

A Bureau of Standards
Unique Functions of the Oovernment's
New Sayoyoo Department.
U NCLE SAM'S new Supreme
Court of weights and meas
ures, for the building of
which Congress Just gave
Secretary Gage a quarter million dol
lars, is the largest bureau added to the
Government for many years. You have
seen it referred to in the news dis
patches as the National Bureau of
Standards. That is its official name.
It might be more properly called the
Supreme Court of Weights and Meas
ures, because it really will be the tri
bunal of last appeal, whereat disputes
as to the accuracy of weights and
measuring instruments can be finally
This new bureau will save millions

will give the common people better
measure of dry goods, groceries, gas
and electric light. This bureau of
standards will correct our weights
and measures, that they may all be
equally uniform. It will test yard
sticks, meter sticks, peck measures,
litre measures, pound weights, kilo
gram weights, thermometers, steam
gauges and all kinds of delicate mens
uring devices. It will stamp each
with a Government stamp certifying
its truthfulness or error.
A representative of each measuring
of weighing instrument to be thus
tested and stamped will be stored in
the new bureau as "the" standard of
that particular measure and weight,
with which all others of its class must
be compared. There will be a stand

and inches; other standards of length.

many, France and England-which
have standardizing bureaus-for these
It will be difficult to realize the
amount of care which will be taken
with these standards installed in the
new bureau. To properly shelter them
from the many disturbing influences
which have little effect upon ordinary
instruments the new building will cost
a half as much again as would a usual
structure of the same size. Professor
S. W. Stratton is the new director of
the bureau. The laboratory, as the
main building will be known, will be
situated In an open space so large that
no other building can be erected within
a quarter of a mile of it. It will be
far enough from the city to be out of
reach of the vibrations caused by elec
tric cars and heavy wagons. Many of
the walls will be double, to prevent
penetration of hot or cold air and con
sequent fluctuation of interior temper
Compressed air and vacuum pipes
will extend throughout the building,
as will several systems of electric
wires. There will be double windows
capable of flooding the rooms with
light, also light-proof shutters, mak
ing them absolutely dark. There will
be fire-proof vaults for the storing of
the standards. A separate building,
a thousand yards or more away, will
install the engines, dynamos and other
heavy machinery essential to the work.
As a whole, the institution will be a
modern temple of science, of which
the country may be justly proud.
The bureau will also establish a
standard electric cell, measuring stand
ard volts; indeed, electric standards of
many kinds. Although applications of
electricity represent a rapidly-growing
business with investments of $2,000,
000,000, there are in this country no
facilities for testing meters and other
instruments used in electric measure
A standard thermometer will be an
other of the many instruments to be
stored in this bureau. With this will
be compared for correction the mill
ions of thermometers used by physi
clans and surgeons, by scientific labor
atories and the great industrial estab
For a long time Uncle Sam has had
an offiee of weights and measures for
giving out, mostly to Its scientists,
standards of weights, measures and
capacities which have been adopted
for convenience, but not by law. It
has always been a part of the coast
and geodetic survey, but is now merged
into the new bureau of standards.

How the Cossack Marches.
The Ruski Invalid prints a number
of excellent marches executed by
Russian troops in Manchuria, and es
pecially by a column of Transbalkan
Cossacks. During long marches over
a total length of from i89 to 2125)
miles, the average distances made
good on each marching day by four
battalions of infantry were eightten,
twenty-two, twenty and twenty-oae
miles respectively. Details are also

of Cossack artillery, which during
thirty-one days it was in the field was
on the move for twenty-nine days,
marching on an average twenty-seven
miles a day.
Poison in Primroses.
Physicians and gardeners have often
asserted that the common primrose is
poisonous, and Dr. Nestler has given
an account in a German journal of
experiments proving this to be the
case. The glandular hairs contain the
poison in the form of a yellowish
green secretion. This, when concen
trated, is very virulent, as the author
discovered by testing the effect upon
Fiftieth Anniversary of Bloomer Costume
Exactly half a century has passed
since Mrs. Bloomer immortalized her
self by suggesting that skirts be dis

style of dress, and now some of her
warm admirers in England and Ger
many are saying that this notable
event in modern history ought to be
commemorated in some fitting man

public, they are telling all they know
about this remarkable woman, and
have published a portrait of her, the
original of which appeared in The Lily,
a monthly magazine, which was edi
ted by Mrs. Bloomer.
It was early in 1851 that the number
of the magazine containing the por
trait appeared, and Mrs. Bloomer, who
was then living at Seneca Falls, N) Y.,
was at once recognized as the cham
pion of a movement in favor of 'dress
reform. The ")ortrait of herself in her
singular costume, of course, did much
to bring her into public notice, and,
furthermore, she took care to publish
in her magazine articles by physi
