Chamois Skin of Commerce.
Charles C. Druedllng, of Philadel
phia, has written an article for the
American Journal of Pharmacy on the
subject of chamois skins. What Is
known in the market as chamois skins,
he says, is really an oll-tanncd sheep
or lamb skin lining. The supply of
skins from the chamois animal is very
limited enough could not be obtained
in a year to supply the United States
for more than a single day. Ho made
special inquiry on a recent visit to
Switzerland about the annual crop of
tho chamois skin nnd ascertained that
from 5,000 to C.000 skins would be a
fair averago yearly crop. This skin is
heavier than the skin of the sheep or
lamb, also much coarser. For strength
and durability tho chamois skin is pre
ferable, but for ordinary use and ap
pearance the oil-tanned sheep skin
lining would, In most instances, bo

given to starching, tho first essential
being good Starch, which has sufficient
strength to stiffen, without thickening
the goods. Try Deflanco Starch and

Their Hard Struggle Made Easier Interesting State
' ments by a Young Lady ' in Boston
and One in Nashville. Ten n.
All women work; some in their
homes, some in church, and some in
tho whirl of society. And in stores,
mills and shops tens of thousands are
on the never-ceasing treadmill, earning"
their daily bread.
All aro subject to tho same physical
laws; all suffer alike from the same
physical disturbance, and tho nature of
their duties, in many cases, quickly
drifts them into tho horrors of all
kinds of female complaints, tumors,
ulceration, falling- and displace
ments or perhaps irregularity or
suppression, causing backache, ner
vousness, irritability and lassitude.
They especially require an invigorat
ing, sustaining medicine which will
strengthen tho female organism and
enable them to bear easily the fatigues
of the day, to sleep well at night, and
to rise refreshed and cheerful.
How distressing to see a woman
struggling to cam a livelihood or per
form her household duties when her
back and head are aching she is so
tired slio can hardly drag about or
stand up, and every movement causes
pain, tho origin of which is due to
some derangement of the femalo or
ganism. Miss P. Orser, of 14 Warrenton Street.
Boston, tells women how to avoid such
Buffering ; she writes :
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:
" I suffered misery for several years with
femalo irregularities. My back ached : I had
bearing-down polos, and frequent headaches;
I could not sleep and could hardly drag
around. I consulted two nhv&icians without!
relief, and ns a hist resort, I tried Lydia E.
rinuuuus cckh no compound, nnu to my
surprise, overy ache and pain left me. I
gamed ten pounds and am in perfect health."
Miss Pearl Ackers, of .127 North Sum
mer Street, Nashville, Tcnn., writes:
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:
"I suffered with painful periods,
backache, bearing-down pains, pains across
the abdomen; was very nervous nnd irrita
ble, and my trouble grew wors every month.
"My physician failed to help nio and I
decided to tryLydla K. I'inkham's Vegetable
Compound. I soon found it was doing ma
pood. All my pains and aches disappeared,
and I no longer fear my monthly periods."
Lydia B, Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound is the unfailing euro for all these
troubles. It strengthens the proper
muscles, nnd displacement with all its
horrors will no more crush you.
Backache, dizziness, ininting, bearing-down
pains, disordered stomach,
moodiness, dislike of friends and society
all symptoms of tho one cause will
be quickly dispelled, and it will make
you strong and well.

ferings to a woman, and receive help

that the material is good, that it is cut in
the latest fashion and use
in tho laundry. All three thtngs are im

or how daintily made, bad starch and
poor laundry work will spoil the effect
