Hundreds of women suffer from bend,
aches, dissidents, rest lessors, languor
and tiiu1 lilt. Few realise thnt their
misery all come from Ilia lent state of
their blood. They take one tiling f,.
their head, another for tbelr stomach,
a third for their uerves, and yet all the
wlnlo It is simply their poor UoU Unit
I the cease of their discomfort.
If cue sure remedy for making (rt"d,
rich blood were nsvd every one of their
distressing ailments would dimprwar, as
they did In tbe case of Mrs. Klia K.
Btoue, who bad been ailing for years and
was completely ran down before she re
alised the nature of her trouble.
' For several years," said Mrs. Stone,
" I suffered, from general debility. It
begun about 1896 with iudigestion. ner
vousness and steady headache. Up to
19(10 I hadn't been able to find any relief
from this condition. I was then very
tbin and bloodless. An enthusiastic
friend, who had nsed Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, urged me to give tbem ft trial auo
I finally bongbt ft box.
" I did not notice any marked change
from tbe we of the first box, bnt I de
termined to give them fair trial aud 1
kept on. When 1 bad finished the
second box I could see vwy decided signs
ot improvement in uiy condition. I be
gan to feel belter all over and to have
hopes of ft complete cure.
" I used in all eight or ten boxes, aim
when I stopped I bad got back my regu
lar weight and good healthy color and
the gain has lasted. I csu eat wbat I
please without discomfort. My nervous
ness is entirely gone, and, while I bad
eoiiHtnnt headaches before, I very rarely
hav one now. I cheerfully recommend
lr. Williams' Pink tVils to wouieu who
suffer as I did."
Mrs. Stone was seen at her prettj
borne in Lkewood, R. I., where, as the
result of her experience. Dr. Williams'
link Pills are very popular. These fa,
tuous pills are sold by all druggists. A
book that every woman needs is pub

Senator Spooner'a Conundrum.
Senator Spooner has been getting a
lot of fun out of ft conundrum which
was recently propounded to htm. It is
cleverer than most things ot the kind
and the aenatot enjoys trying it on
others to see whether they will fall, as
did. This Is tbe conundrum:
Which has more feetone rat or no
cat?" Of course everybody gives it
whereupon Mr. Spooner gives tbe
answer: "No cat, of course. One cat
as four feet No cat has five feet."
