BACK FROM THE PHILIPPINES.
Is it not true ? Women suffer, feel the very life crushed
out of them, grow old before their time. Each morning
wake up determined to do so much before the day ends,
Before the morning is very old the dreadful BACKACHE
attacks them, the brave spirit sinks back in affright ; no
matter how hard they struggle, the "clutch" isupoa them
and they fall upon the couch crying :
" Why should I suffer so What can I do?"
The answer is ready, your cry has been heard, and a
woman is able to restore you to health and happiness.
Backache is only a symptom of more fatal trouble
heed its warning in time.
Iiydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound will
stop your torture and restore your courage. Your pains
come from unnatural menstruation or some derangement
of the womb. Let those who are suffering read Mrs. Mor
ton's letter and be guided by her experience.
AN OPEN LETTER TO WOMEN.
DEAR Mrs. Pinkham : I have been so delighted
withXydiaE. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound
I thought I would write and thank you. My 6ystem
was entirely run down. I suffered with terrible back
ache in the small of my back and could hardly stand
upright; was more tired in the morning than on retiring
at night. I had no appetite. Since taking your Com
pound I have gained fifteen pounds, and am gaining
every week. My appetite has improved, have no back
ache, and I look better than I ever looked before.
44 1 shall recommend it to all my friends, as it cer
tainly is a wonderful medicine." JIbs. E. F. Mokton,
826 York St., Cincinnati, O.
When a medicine has been successful in restoring-to health
more than a million women, you cannot well say, without
trying it, "I do not believe it will help me. If you are ill,
don't hesitate to get a bottle of L.ydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable
Compound at once, aud write Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn, Mass., for
special advice it is free.

Brlg.-len. Fred D. Grant Gives an Intel
-eating- Word Picture of Condition
la the Philippines.
San Francisco, May 20. Brig-.-Gen
Frederick D. Grant, who returned
from Manila on the Sheridan, speak
ing of th3 conditions in the Philippines,
"Everything- is settling1 down and we
are getting at the real work of goT
erning; and teaching the people. Their
peculiar national character makes
them hard subjects for the present.
You must remember that they were
originally pirates; that their civiliza
tion is of the fourteenth if not of the
fifteenth century, and the tendency to
brigandage is so strong among them
that it amounts to a disease. In
many districts the paying1 of tribute
to robbers is considered the regular
thing-, no more out of the way than
A T V O 1 T 1 T f ncL- TlfW 19 1 1 (Tl'f t H f7Tl
g-ood government in the municipalities
to protect them against themselves
until they learn a taste for order, and
withdraw gradually from active inter
ference, leaving1 the towns one at a
time, as we see that they can be trust
ed, but having out troops within strik
ing distance for some time after we
leave any district, so as to insure
against a relapse. We must expect
such robbery and brigandage and pill
age and even murder for a long1 time
"It is surprising to see the results
that we have obtained in getting law
and order into these people in the
few months of comparative peace.
"My district includes the Provinces
of I'.ulucan, I'ampango and Bataan,
with a population of 600,000, all Taga
lo provinces, and considered the most
lawless in the islands. Now there is
not a robber band in the whole dis
trict, a condition unknown in the
whole history of the Philippines. We
have in every town of the district a
local government under a local civ
ilian governor. We are building roads
and teaching- the people."
Gen. Grant expresses the opinion
that the resistance of the insurgents
was prolonged by the events in the
United States attending- the last pres
idential campaign. Said he:
"The property-holding claes in the
island is composed of persons who are
pretty ignorant and who could not
quite understand the situation. They
are naturally our friends, but were
under constant pressure to throw
their fortunes in with the insurgent
cause. When they heard that a party
was coming into power in the United
States that was in favor of giving up
the government to the insurgents,
they did not know what to do. If
they stood out against the insurreO'
tion they would be likely to lose their
lives and property as soon as we
turned cur backs.
"With that kind of people, timid.
ignorant, afraid to espouse a causo
that might lead totheir destruction,and
with the most unscrupulous element
in the islands in charge of the native
forces, there was no use in going
ahead. I stopped aetive operations
after the nomination of Bryan, and
tried only to protect my own men
The cessation of activities had a de
plorable result, the slaughter of inno
cent people, by the lawless element,
partly sanctioned by the insurgent
"Some of the figures which I can
vouch for in the case of my own dis
trict, are appalling. In the Province
of Pampanga they killed over one
thousand jople because they would
not swear allegiance to the insurrec
tion. In one narrow district over
three humired were tiried alive, pos
sibly by I.adrones, but much more
probably for the same cause. One
man, Lorenzo Cainayer, killed eight
men in one day within easj reach of
my quarters. In the cases where the
perpetrators of these outrages could
be proved, I acted severely.
"After the elections, when natives
learned that we were to stay, the
real end of the insurrection came."
The surrender of Lieut.-CJen. Mari
ana Trias had more effect on the
Philippine mind, Gen. Grant thinks,
than ihe manifesto issued by Gen.
Aguinaldo. Gen. Grant will proceed
east in a day or two.

MANNER AND MOTIVE.
rbe War In Which Thlngi Are Said
Often Leaves a Mistaken Im
pression of the Intention.
You may honestly wish to do and say
the right thing, but you often speak or
act in such a manner that you do more
harm than good. The other day, when
you made that facetious remark about
your friend's hat, raising a laugh at
the owner's expense, you said what
was true, but you said it in a poor
way, and you hurt your friend more
than you helped. And that other time,
when you went to your friend to tell
her candidly, as you said, what a mis
take she had made in her management
of the literary club, you spoke only
what was true, but you spoke it in a
very superior and condescending man
ner, and your friend put up the shut
ters of her heart as against a storm of
hail, says Rev. Bradley Gilman, in Good
There is only one spirit and manner
in which the truth can be acted or ut
tered profitably, fruitfully, and that is
the spirit of love. St. Paul was wise,
as well as just, when he urged his
friends at Ephesus to "speak the truth
in love." And I care not how intimate
your friendship with another may be,
it will never reach a point where you
can justly disregard this rule of speak
ing the truth only in love. There are
people, and you know them, who re
peatedly wound and thwart their
friends, and the only explanation
vouchsafed is: "What I did was right,
what I said was true." Yes, but the
way in which you did it, the manner in
which you said it, that was not right
and true; not right, when you remem
ber that a human heart is easily
wounded, and not true to the highest
level of friendship and sympathy. Syd
ney Smith said of such people: "They
turn friendship into a system of law
ful and unpunishable impertinence."
SYMPTOMS OF SPRING.
Some of the SiR-nn That Clearly In
dicate the Ketarn of the Glad
Home Sen Hon.
"Well, I guess spring has come at
last," yawningly said the Old Codger,
as he sat in his back-tilted chair with
his feet comfortably corded up on the
railing of the piazza, relates T. P. M.,
in Puck. "The grass is comin' up, the
trees are buddin' out, the boys are
fightin in the streets 'most every day,
the sweet, scent of the vvhat's-its-name
is in the air, the so-and-so's are swing
in' and singin on the swayin' boughs,
the odor of the moth-ball is prevalent,
the clatter of the borrowed lawn mow
er and the fall of last year's hammock
are beginnin to lie heard in the land,
and the coal dealer commences to
treat his fellow-men like equals.
"Last year's shirt-waist jokes are
beginnin' to appear in the newspapers,
spring poems are bein' sprung, the
patent churn man comes smilin' up the
road, we begin to read items about lit
tle girls dyin' from the effects of
jumpin the rope 400 times apiece, my
nephew, who mistakes laziness for in
tellectuality, is hintin about his wil
lin'ness to accept a lucrative situation,
the man who knows it all has got a
hard cold from changin' his under
wear too previously. Aunt Hetty is
brewin' a mess of root bitters that I
know from painful experience will be
potent enough to burn a hole in the
