WHY MRS. PIHKHAM
Is Able to Help Sick "Women
When Doctors Tail.
IIow gladly would men fly to wo
man's aid did they but understand a
woman's feelings, trials, sensibilities,
and peculiar organic disturbances.
Those things are known only to
women, and the aid a man would give
is not at his command.
To treat a case properly it is neces
sary to know all about it, and full
information, many times, cannot be
given by a woman to her family phy-
Mrs. G. II. Coaffkll.
Icion. She cannot bring: herself to
tell everything1, and the physician is
at a constant disadvantage. This is
why, for the past twenty-five years,
thousands of women have been con
fiding their troubles to Mrs. Pinkham,
and whose advice has brought happi
ness and health to countless women in
the United States.
Mrs. Chappell, of Grant Park, 111.,
whose portrait we publish, advises all
Buffering women to seek Mrs. Pink
ham's advice and use Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound, as they
cured her of inflammation of the ovaries
and womb ; she, therefore, speaks from
knowledge, and her experience ought
to give others confidence. Mrs. Pink
ham's address is Lynn, Mass., and her
advice is absolutely free.

NEW KIND OF SULPHUR BATHS
Place In England "Where tbe Unman
Body la Electroplated by
Ilarrograte, the famous Yorkshire
watering place, has hit upon a decid
Its sulphur wells have long1 enjoj-ed
renown. Most people know them by
repute; smaller circles by imperative
and not wholly joyous experience.
They are not exactly nice, these wa
ters, though decidedly beneficial, says
the London Express.
But it seems to be one of nature's
compensating laws that what is good
for you must be nasty. The taste of
Harrogate waters suggests a brew in
which the leading ingredients are a
liberal supply of rusty flat-irons and
a lavish store of eggs on which ex
treme age has told heavily.
It is in the external, not the in
ternal, use of sulphur water, how
ever, that Harrogate's latest triumph
has been attained. Described briefly,
by the application of electricity in a
sulphur bath man is converted into
a sulphur-coated being. .
In other words, the electricity, act
ing upon the sulphur latent in the
water, deposits it upon the epidermis
of the patient, much as electrolysis
covers metallic goods with a plating
of gold or silver.
This process, claims Dr. Smith, the
local practitioner, whose experiments
have led up to its discovery, is much
better than the ordinary sulphur
bath so beneficial in certain skin af
fections. The benefit is both great
er and more rapid; for he finds that
the deposit of sulphur actually placed
upon the skin by electric influence is
much more effective and curative
than that nascent in the water. It
is, indeed, driven into the skin, and so
keeps up the curative action until the
Dr. Smith cites cases from his own
practice to justify his contention. He
supports his theory by the report of c
professor of chemistry, who sets out
in learned phraseology how an elec
tric current passed through the wa
ters will liberate sulphur at the posi
tive pole hy direct electrolysis of the
sulphides and of the dissolved sul
phuretted hydrogen, and so lead to
the deposition of sulphur on the skin.
If, as seems likely, the new cure
becomes popular, the fragrance of
sulphur may soon dispute with other
perfumes for predominance where
people foregather. But the initiated
will not attribute the odor, as our
superstitious ancestors might have
done, to the unseen presence of an
The will simply scent the sulphur

MISS LUCT AXXIE HEISER, OF MINNEAPOLIS, MINX.
Miss Lucy Annie Heiser, a graduated nurse of nine years' experience,
trained and graduated from the Homeopathic Hospital of Minneapolis, Minn.,
writes as follows:
Albert Lea, Minn., Nov. 8, 1899.
The Peruna Medicine Co., Columbus, Ohio:
Gentlemen "Although my school does not believe In patent medicines,
I have found it to be a fact that Peruna Is a grand and valuable medicine. I
have known it to cure Mrs. Sampson, suffering with an inflamed womb, aggra
vated by malaria, after the doctors had failed to help her. Another of my
former patients suffered with a complication of female diseases; she was so
thin, nothing but skin and bones, but Peruna cured her and she is to-day in
good health and good flesh. Facts prove that Peruna revives lost strength and
restores to tbe sick that most wonderful blessing of lifehealth."
Lucy Annie Heiser.
If all the tired women and all the nervous women, and all the women that
needed a tonic would read and heed the words of these fair ladies who have
spoken right to the point, how many invalids would be prevented and how
many wretched lives be made happy.
Peruna restores health in a normal way.
Peruna puts right all the mucous membranes of the body, and in this way
restores the functions of every organ.
