THE BLUNDER OF ECONOMY.
Frequently There is Wisdom in Keep
ing Up Appearances.
r Women have a good many sins laid
to their charge, and extravagance in
dress is one of them. But there are
some instances in which this not
wholly feminine falling Is commend
able. It wits recently stated that in
times of financial depression men in
variably curtail their expenditure in
dress, whereas women go on arraying
themselves just as if nothing had hap
pened. This certainly counts one to
them. It may look like foolishness
and heedless extravagance on the on the face
of it, whereas it really goes a long
way toward saving a situation. Econ
omy is a mistake at such times. To
begin with, appearances must be kept
up. To advertise financial depression
is disastrous. It is always distinctly
encouraging to have seeming evi
dences of prosperity before the eyes.
Again, it everybody began cutting
'down expenses, as men invariably do
directly stocks fall, there would soon
be little or no money in circulation.
Clearly women are in the right-are
,they not invariably so?-and men
wholly in the wrong in this matter.

Coffee Acts the Jonah and Will Come

A clergyman who pursues his noble
calling in a country parish In Iowa,
tells of his coffee experience:
"My wife and [ used coffee regular
ly for breakfast, frequently for dinn.r
and occasionally for supper-always
the very best quality-package coffee
never could find a place on our table.
"In the spring of 1896 my wife was
takenu with violent vomnitlng which we
had great difficulty in stopping.
"It seemed to come from coffee
drinking but we could not decide.
"In the following July, however,
e was attacked a second time by
the vomiting. I was away from home
filling an appointment, at the time,
and on my return I found her very
low; she had literally vomited herself
almost to death, and it took some days
to quiet the trouble and restore her
stomach.
"1 had also experienced the same
trouble, but not so violently, and had
relieved it, each time, by a resort to
medicine.
"But my wife's second attack satis
ted me that the use of coffee was at
the bottom of our troubles, and so we
slopped it forthwith and took on
Poeatum Food Coffee. The old symp
toms of disease disappeared and dur

vomiting. We never weary of Postum,

"A temperance lecturer wished to

power of whisky.
"Accordingly he caused a drop of
water to be magnified and thrown
upon a magic lantern screen. The
picture was a terrible one. Worms big
ger than pythons, crabs bigger than
elephants, spiders the size of a ship,
fought together in the drop of water
like fiends in the Infernal regions.
"The lecturer now caused a drop of
whisky to be added to the water.
"'Watch, frieit1,' he said, 'watch
the whisky's effect.'
"The effect was marvelous. The
liquor killed all those ferocious hor

became peaceful and still.

"What have you named her?" asked
Mr. Green, oan being told by the father

"Dat's what we can't 'cide on," was

Voice from Arkansas.
Cleveland, Ark.. July 31st.-(Spe.
cial)-Nearly every newspaper tells
of some wonderful cure of some form
of Kidney Disease by the Great Amer.
ican Remedy. Dodd's Kidney Pills,
and this part of Arkansas is not with
out its share of evidence that no case
is too deeply rooted for Dodd's Kidney
Pills to cure.
Mr. A. E. Carlile, well known and
highly respected here, tells of his cure
after nearly a quarter of a century's
suffering. Mr. Carlile says:
"I want to let the public know what
I think of Dodd's Kidney Pills. I
think they are the best remedy for
sick kidneys ever made.
"I had Kidney Trouble for 23 years
and never found anything that did me
so much good as Dodd's Kidney Pills.
I recommend them to all sufferers."
There is no uncertain sound about
Mr. Carlile's statement. He knows
that Dodd's Kidney Pills rescued him
from a life of suffering and he wants
:he public to know it. Dodd's Kidney
Pills cure all Kidney ills from Back,
ache to Bright's Disease.
The Deeper Note.
The hurrying throngs drift idly past, and
hear,
And yet hear not, the notes tuned to
their ear,
Where. by the curb life's street musi
clans play
And still earth's restless thousands go
their way!
Yet see. where through the summer night_
unknown,
Beneath some window dark, one sings
alone;
One, gloom-enwrapt, pleads some proud
heart to take
Love in at last for all his passion's sake!
The world waits with him at his window
there:
The world sways with his song and his
despair;
But what to him is all their phantom
throng
Since one voice sleeps and answers not
his song!

Thousands of Women
ARE MADE WELL AND STRONG
uooeess of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Cempound Reefs Upon the Fact that It
Really Does Make Siok Womesn Well
Thousands upon thousands of Ameri
can women have been restored to
health by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegeta
ble Compound. Their letters are on file
in Mrs. Pinkham's office, and prove this
statement to be a fact and not a mere
boast.
Overshadowing indeed is the success
of this great medicine, and compared
with it all other medicines and treat
ment for women are experiments.
Why has Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound accomplished its wide
spread results for good ?
Why has it lived and thrived and
done its glorious work for a quarter of
a century ?
Simply and surely because of its ster
ling worth. The reason no othe Imed
icine has even approached its success
is plainly and positively because there
Is no other medicine in the world so
good for women's ills.
The wonderful power of Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegeta'ble Compound over
the diseases of womankind is not be.
cause it is a stimulant-not because it is
a palliative, but simply because it is
the most wonderful tonic and recon
structor ever discovered to act direct.y
upon the uterine system, positively
cUarIe disease and displacements and
restoring health and vigor.
Marvelous cures are reported frmn
all parts of the country by women who
have been cured, trained nurses who
have witnessed cures, and physicians
who have recognized the virtue in
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound, and are fair enough to give
credit where it is due. If physicians
dared to be frank and open, hundreds
of them would acknowledge that they
constantly prescribe Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound in severe
cases of female ills, as they know by
experience that it will effect a cure.
Women who are troubled with painful
or irregular menstruation, backache,
bloating (or flatulence). leucorrhcea,
falling, inf'ammation or ulceration of
the uterus,' ovarian troubles, that
"bearing-down" feeling, dizziness,
faintness, indigestion, nervous pros
tration, or the blues, should take im
mediate action to ward off the serious
consequences and be restored to health
and strength by taking Lydia E. Pink.
ham's Vegetable Compound. Anyway,

doctor to pay strict. attention to the
patient. In course of time, when stif
ficient is known to warrant such anI
action, the medical students are per
mitted to stiudy the case, visiting and
examining the patient daily under the
direction of a visiting physician. It is
only those unfortunate people who
have submitted their case to special
study by a large staff who know how
very trying is the ordeal to which they
have occasionally to submit.
Of course, the common diseases,
such as typhoidl fever, consumption
and bronchitis, are of no money value.
But were a man in this country to get
tIubonic plague or blackwater fever
or yellow jack, he could undoubtedly
command a price. Most American doc
tors htave never seen cases of these
dllieases. Consequently they are liable
to make mistakes, and when practicing
at any of the great seaports, into which
every variety of disease enters at one
time or another, their mistakes might
have serious consequences.
Sometimes, too, a person has a com
mon disease in some unusual place.
He is, of course, a pathological curi
osity, and as worthy of his hire as a
fat boy or a giant. Cancer, for exam
ple, is far too common. But an epithe
lian cancer on the upper lip is a great
rarity and any one with such an in

fee for exhibition at the meetings of
medical societies.
How are you to know if you possess
a valuable disease? If your melical
man is anxious to get a photograph of
the affected part, if he brings some one
else to see it, if he asks you to appear
before a society, you may be sure
your disease is a good asset.

How supremely slow the city
Is. while waiting your return.
So it's sentiment or sorrow
C(all it anything you may
I shall pack my trunk to-morrow
And away.

Modern Institutions Criticised.
May 25 was the centenary of the
death of Archdeacon Paley, who wrote
"Evidences of Christianity." The arch
deacon likened "the divine right of
kings" to "the divine right of con
stables" and satirized the institution
of private property by the simile of a
hundred pigeons in a field of corn.
If. "instead of each picking where
and what it liked, tcking just as much
as it wanted and no more." ninety
nine of them were to reserve only the
chaff and refuse for themselves and
heap up the rest for "the weakest,
perhaps worst, pigeon of the flock,"
that, said Paley. would be just likg
human private property.
Squire Hamilton's Taste,
On a certain occasion, many years
ago, it is said that Squire Hamilton,
one of the ablest and best known
members of the legal profession in
Maine, half affronted a distinguished
gentleman with whom he was dining.
The dining room had been newly
and splendidly furnished, whereas the
dinner was but a very meager and in
different one. While some of the
guests were flattering their host on his
taste, magnificence, etc.. Squire Ham'
ilton said: "For my part, I had rather
have seen less gilding and more carv
ing!"
