Have an Abiding Faith in Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
After years of struggle to attain and merit public confidence, -with a firm
and steadfast belief that some day others would recognize in us the truth,
pood faith, and honesty of purpose -which we know we possess, what a genu
ine satisfaction it is to succeed, and to realize the uplifting" influence of the
merited confidence of a vast army of our fellow being's.
Thus stands the Pinkham name in New England, and all over America,
and nowhere is the faith in Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound greater
than in New England, its home. Merit, and merit alone, can gain this.
' Dear Mrs. rrxKHAM : I was
troubled very badly with inflamma
tion of the bladder, was sick in bed
with it. I had two doctors, but they
did me no good. A friend gave me
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound, and it helped me. I have now
taken three bottles of it, an'd I am
entirely cured. It is a God-send to
any woman, and I would recommend it
to any one suffering as I was. I think,
if most of the women would take
more of your medicine instead of
going to the doctors, they would be
better oft. The Compound has also
cured my husband of kidney trouble."
Mrs. Mabel Gookix,
Box 160. Mechanic Falls, Maine.
, NERVOUS PROSTRATION.
" For two years I suffered from
nervous prostration, the result of
female weakness. I had leucorrhoea
very badly, and at time of menstrua
tion would be obliged to go to bed.
Also suffered with headaches, pain
across back, and in lower part of
abdomen. I was so discouraged. I
had read of Lydia E. Pinkham's Com-
rsund, and concluded to give it a trial,
wrote to Mrs. Pinkham, and received
nvery nice letter ia return. I began
at once the use of her Vegetable Com
pound and Blood Purifier, and am now
feeling splendid. I have no more pain
at monthly periods, can do my own
work, and have gained ten pounds. I
would not be without your Vegetable
Compound. It is a splendid medicine.
I am very thankful for what ithas done
for mo Mrs. J. W. J., 76 Carolina
Ave., Jamaica Plain, Mass.
If Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound will cure these women why
not you j-ou cannot tell until you try it. If you are ill, and really want to
pet well, commence its use, at once, and do not let any drug clerk persuade you
that he has something of his own which ia better, for that is absurd. Ask
him to produce the evidence we do.

Is What the Special Reunion Post
offlce Will Be Called.
NEWLY ADDED AMUSEMENTS
Eacb Commandant of State Headquarters
Furnished Mail for Any Company
or Command In Ilia Division.
MBMruis, Tenn., April 22. Veterans
will have their own postoffice, which
will be located in Confederate Hall,
during the coining Reunion. Uncle
Sam is determined that the ex-soldiers
shall have everything1 comfortable, and
to this end has agreed that the special
postoffice be placed at the convenience
of all the old veterans and their friends.
A special man will be placed in charge
of it and all mail arriving for visitors of
the Reunion or members of the differ
ent commands of Confederate Veterans
or Sons of Veterans will be delivered
at the hall, will be there assorted and
arranged for delivery, and any visitor
expecting a letter from home can find
it at headquarters. Each command
ant of State headquarters will be fur
nished with a list of mail for any com
pany or command in his division. Let
ters may also be delivered from this
postoffice and stamps purchased.
This sub-department of Uncle Sara
will be under the direction, of Postmas
ter Dutro and will be given his personal
attention. The suggestion has met
with approval of the committee, which
appreciates thoroughly the interest
taken in the success of the big Reunion
by the postmaster.
Confederate Hall itself is in rapid
progress of erection. Already the foun
dations and floors have been laid, and
the raising of the immense arches which
are to form the huge skeleton for the
lofty dome of the building has been ac
aomplished. As the floor space will af
ford the largest dancinrj- platform in
the entire South, those upon whom will
fall the task of providing for the social
events of the Reunion are naturally
more than interested in the succees of
the nndertaking. Resides the official
sponsors and maids of honor, the Sons
of Veterans and the Daughters ol the
Confederacy are busily engaged in
planning for the social success of the
Reunion, which is thus far so assured
that the numerous balls and receptions
already arranged for promise to make
the Reunion the most brilliant social
vent thus far known in the history of
The beautiful and picturesque flower
parade, mention of which has already
been made in these letters, is again
coming to the front in the discussions
for the providing of the different
amusements. The activity in that spe
cial direction is most pronounced. Ap
plications from all over the South are
being received from those who are anx
ious to participate, and the plans of
those who have already decided to en
ter the lists for the expensive prizes
that have been offered for the most
beautifully decorated carriages show
that the floral exhibition will be far
above any similar entertainment yet
given in the country.
There is little doubt now that the
city will do its part in the enter
tainment and amusement of the thou
sands of visitors. It is now being
planned that the city administration
take charge of the illumination of the
entire line of march during the three
days of the Reunion, lighting the
streets with brilliant electrical effects,
besides arranging for other special il
lumination features. If this is accom
plished the committees who have that
part of the work in charge will be en
abled to turn their attention to new and
more costly illumination and decora
tion features which will result in the
city's being ablaze with vari-colored
light from one end to the other.
For the lovers of out-door sports
there will be athletic games in plenty.
There will be a professional base ball
game every day, besides other attractive
inducements to the lovers of that class
of amusement. A base ball game be
tween the Little Rock League and the
Memphis League will be played in this
city the latter part of this month for
the purpose of devoting the proceeds to
the Reunion work. This concession in
allowing the two leagues to play to
gether, something that was never done
before, was granted by the president of
the Southern League, Mr. R. W. Kent,
for the sole purpose of aiding in making
the Reunion a success. Already three
thousand tickets have been printed and
circulated, and it is expected that at
the least calculation four thousaud peo
ple will witness the game. This shows
how earnest and widespread the en
thusiasm is to make the eleventh gath
ering of the Confederate Veterans a
big and unqualified success.
The following circular has just been
issued, calling a meeting and reunion
of the survivors of Ashby's Tennessee
Cavalry Brigade, by James P. Coffin, of
Ashby's Tennessee Cavalry Rrigade.
The fourth reunion of the survivors ol
this brigade, which was composed of the
First Regiment Tennessee Cavalry, (Wheel
er's) ; Second, (Ashby's) ; Fifth, (McKen-
zie's), and Ninth Battalion, (Akin's), will
be held at Memphis, Tenn., during the U.
C. V. Reunion, May 28 to 80, 1901.
It has been found impossible to definitely
locate the place of meeting, but a room has
been secured conditionally, and due an
nouncement will be made later, and
placards, giving street number, will be
posted at the headquarters ot the Tennessee
Division in Memphis.
The room will be open to the survivors of
this brigade and their friends during the
three days of the Reunion, and a formal
meeting and "lovefeast" will be held at 3
o'clock p.m., Wednesday, May 29, 1901.
