The Great Woman's Remedy for Woman's Ills.
77 e Great Woman's Remedy for Woman's Ills.
No other medicine in the world has received such widespread
and unqualified endorsement.
No jt her medicine has such a record of cures of female troubles
cr siirh li"ts of jratefVi friends.
)o not be j'cr?u.idcd that any other medicine is just as good.
Ary dc;der who risks you to buy something else when you- go into
bis store purposely to buy I.vdia. I".. I'inkham's Vegetable Compound,
h.is no interest in y ur case. He i.i merely trying to sell you some
thing om which he can make a larger profit. lie does not care
whether yu pet well or not, so long as he can make a little more
nv-ncv out of your si. kness. If he wished you well he would
without hesitation hand you the medicine you ask for, and which he
knows is the best woman's medicine in the world.
I'oIIow the record i this medicine, and remember that these
thousands of cures of women whose letters arc constantly printed
in V:is paper were not brought about by " something else," but by
Lydia XT. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
Tho Great Woman's Romody for Woman's Ills.
Tho'-e women who refuse to accept anything else are rewarded
a hundred thousand times, for they get what they want a cure.
Moral Stick to the medicine that you know is Itest.
When a medicine has been successful in restoring
to health more than a million women, you cannot
well say without tryin it, I do not believe it will
help me." If you are ill, do not hesitate to get a bot
tle of Lydia 0. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound at
once, and write Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn, Mass., for
special advice. It is free and helpful.

I It tvas the ch!roiodist from the floor
above- the major's office, and he passed
ithe door two or three times before
knocking, as If to get up Lis courage.
- "Come in!" called the major In a
bland and cheery voice. "Come right
in! Iiy George, but what a coincidence

man. "and I only want what is due
me. I'll go to the bank with you."
"Iion'i! Ion't do it! I'd never for
givv myself for putting you to that
trouble. Yes; I was about to write you
a note. It was surely a curious thing
your coming down as you did. iKx-tor,
do you know wiiere I stood financially
four months ago;"
"Mighty hard up, I guess," was the
"You've hit it. Yes, sir. I was so
hard up that I didn't own the shoes to
my feet. It was the hardest kind of
wwrk for me to raise a dollar. The
cold, cruel world sneered at me ami
called me a deadleat, but there were
a few exceptions. Y'ou were one. In
my darkest hour you had confidence in
me. Whii I wanted those corns re
moved, you didn't demand payment in

"No, sir. Y'ou trusted in my word,
nnd you didn't seek to humiliate me,
and you aroused my deepest gratitude.
I have offered to pay you live for one,

r.fxj and more for one. Can you sell
out your business or give It away to
day or tomorrow?"
"Are you going to pay ma the dol
lar?" sternly demanded the chiropodist.
"If you can't sell out. give it away,
lock it up. throw it out of the window!"
continued the major as he walked
about the room. "My dear man. listen
to me. Four months aco I was hard
up for a quarter; today I have mil
lions behind me millions and millions.
I may be said to swim In gold."
"I'll be hanged if you look it!"
"And how has the change been
brought about? Ry my indefatigable
genius, couph-d with ambition. I look
ed around for a ten strike. It was a
little slow in coining, but I hit it at

"Over what? I'm after my dollar."
'Over your appointment as secretary

result; this 19 your reward. Shake
"Nol by a durn sight! You might as
well give up trying o work any cold
deck in on me. I want that dollar."
"And it was my genius and my finan
ciering which brought It about." said
the major as he rubbed his hands and
patted the chiropodist on the shoul
der. "The thought came to me while I
was eating a veal cutlet at my board
ing house. Our veal tablets are exact
ly what the name implies. We prepare
a cutlet for the table and then com
press it and divide It into tablets. Ev
ery box contains 1. and the price is
13 cents. Two weeks hence they will
be on sale at every drug store in the
United State, and all doctors will rec

and let it dissolve, and there yon are.

"And the company had only been
named when I thought of you for the
position of secretary," mused the ma
jor without seeming to have heard the
Indignant protest. "You were a man
who had trusted me. 'When others de

of this, and I set the salary at $10,CH0

as if wondering If he had met a crazy

"What about my dollar?"
"The tablets will be a go. They can't

can't get enough of veal cutlets In their

for more. They want the taste of cut

The major stepped Into his office and
shut the door.
"Here, what's this?" called the chi
ropodist. The major locked the door.
"Look here, you old deadbeat! I
want that dollar!"
The major sat down at his desk and
lighted the stub end of a cigar.

fecting the organization of the Veal

SUCCESS AND FAILURE.
The Hlaher the Pnrpone tlie Rarer
If by success we mean the full ae
complishment of an end, tho actual
reaping of a harvest of results, then it
Is undoubtedly true that the higher
and nobler the purpose the rarer will
Ik? the success. If we aim to relieve a
man's hunger, we can quickly succeed
In the easy task, but If we aim to In
spire him with a desire to earn his own
bread the work Is more difficult and
the success far more problematical.
If we would restrain a thief from rob
bery, the prison bars and locks Insure
success, but if we would make an hon
est man of him our task is a complex
one, and success may lw afar off. We
undertake to teach a child to read. If
with requisite effort we follow up our
task, we nre successful, but if we as
pire to raise the educational standard
of our community how arduous the
task, how uncertain the result, how
questionable the success!
The lr-w man vr a little thing to do,
Se It nd does it;
The hieh man. with a great thing to ptimie,
lies ere he knows it.
Is hi.s life, then, a failure? No; let
us never imagine that any high pur
pose, any noble thought, any generous
emotion, any earnest effort, is ever lost.
We may never witness its growth, we
may not live to gather its fruit or even
to sec its blossoms, but we may safely
trust that somewhere and at some
time the harvest will be abundant, and
success, long hidden, shall lecome ap
parent. I'hiladelphia Iedger.
I.ove Veraaa Fame.
Observation has shown me that the
famous woman is the unhappy woman.
From the very beginning the man did
what the woman told him to do and
took the consequences In his usual
way. If women have not been Aristo-
tles or Shakespeares or Titians or I'al-
estrinas or Edisons, it is because they
have had no time for that sort of thing.
They have had much more important
business to attend to. They have ruled
the world. They Lave made history
even through their faults. Soeraten
would not have drunk his hemlock
frappe with so much coolness had not
Xantippe tauirlit him endurance. If
Juliet had not leen obstinate and
Katharine somewhat frank and Lady
Ma'-lM-ih too much devoted to her hus
band, where would Shakesjeare have
been? Let me leg of you not to make
history in that way. The grandest
temple of fame is a comfortless place
compared with the temple of love.
