TJT15 ARTO, SATUltDAY. OCTOTrRIl 27. 1900;
Have an Abiding Faith in Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
After years of Ftrocrple to attain anl merit public confidence, with a firm
ami ste.vlfast belief that some day otht-rs would recognize in us the truth,
rnl faith, and honesty of purpose which we know we possess, what a genu
ine satisfaction it is to fuct:tn-d, and to realize the uplifting influence of tho
merited confidence of'a va.-t army of our fellow beings.
Thus stands the I'iriUham narno in New England, and all over America,
and nowhere is the faith in Lydiu 11. l'inkhain's Vegetable C'omjKjund greater
than in New England, its home. Merit, and merit alone, can gain this.
"IlFAR MllS. 3INK!!AM ! I was
troubled very bidly with inflamma
tion of tho bladder, was fiiek in bod
with it. 1 had two d.x-tors, but tiiey
lid me no good. A friend gave me
Lydia E. I'inkham'.s Vegetable Com
pound, nnd it lieljii-d me. I have now
taken three bottles of it. and I am
entirely cured. It is a (iotl-send to
any woman, and I would recommend it
to any one suffering as I was. I think,
if most of the women would take
more of your medicine instead of
going to the doctors, they would be
better off. The Compound has also
cured my husband of kidney trouble."

" For two years I sulTered from
nervous prostration, the result of
female weakness. I had Icucorrhoea
very badly, and at time of menstrua
tion would be obliged to go to bed.
Also tui:ered v.'ith headaches, p"in
iicross baek. and in lower part of
rUlomen. I was so discouraged. " I
Ind r-;ul of Ljtlia E. l'iiikharu's Com
jound. and con-lu!el to give it a trial.
1 wp'tcto Mrs. l'inkham, and reeeived
a very niiM- letter in return. I began
at onee the use of her Vegetable Cooi
m 'luni and I H hxI l'uri tier, and am now
feeling splendid. I have no more pain
at monthly periods, ean do my own
work, and have gained ten jxiunds. I
would not be without your Vegetable
Compound. It is a splendid medieine.
I am very thankful for what ithasdone
for me." Mies. J. V. J., 70 Carolina
Ave., Jamaica Plain, Mass.
If Eydia E. Pink-ham's Vegetable Compound will cure these women why
not you you cannot tell until you try it. If you are ill, and really want to
get well, commence its use at onee. and do not let any drug clerk persuade you
that be has something of his own which ia better, "for that is absurd. Asie

There Is no use talk-ins: a baby in the house is the link that binds
husband anJ wife together. Nothing is saJJor than fruitless wedlock.
The rnttlin? an cooing of the little ones oilset a thousand times the
occasional worries and trials of life. When a wife is barren, there is a
derangement somewhere in t!;e senital organs, caused by one or more of
those common disorders known as " female troubles". Wine of Cardui
ts the remedv. It puts the organs of generation in a strong and healthy
condition, lilt in? the wife for the sacr?d duty of reproducing her kind.
During the period of gestation the entire system of the expectant mother
is built up to withstand the ordeal of labor, and when the little one
makes its advent it is ltty and

I was gittin tho mall ready to put
Into the Tarry town bag when Bill Lap-
ham conies in. Bill runs a goose farm
just out of Jericho and bas bin gittin
up in the world like a basswood tree.
I've kliown fur the last year that be
wanted to do unthin smart to pit hi.s-
self talked about, nnd when I seen him
come In with his chiu In the air 1 s'peet-
ed he'd hit it.
"Look here, nan." ho whispers, thonsh
we was nil alone, "I've struck the Lip-
pest, broadest, tallest, heftiest Idea
ever thought out by mortal man, and
I'm hevlu hard work to catch my
breath. I'll be hanpod if my head don't
swim nnd my knees wabble over It."
"Is it how to prow peese feathers oa

want to keex it to hit the crowd with
tonight. I :ut the biggest. bUstinest
criiu j to gather here tonight that the
town of Jericho has ever. seen. Give
every man notice as lie drop:; J:i today.
and nl-ing about T o'clock I'll Lev the
lire bolls rung and the horns tooted.
Tell em it s a big thing, pap; tell 'em
it's suuthln that's bound to jump this
town over a ten rail fence and make
eifv lots wutii a thousand dollars
There was a good deal of excitement
around town that afternoon, and when
light came the crowd at the pcstotllce
w;s as lug as the time when war w;s
declared ng'lii Spain. Most of 'cm
thought Bill Lapimm was goiu to de-
tlar war ag'iu Mexico or Cauada, and
evory'oody was lockiu pale when Dea-
cou Sjiooner culled the meeiin to order
Sons of freedom, we hev gathered
horev tonight to hoar some remarks
from our esteemed feller townsman,
William Iipham. and we klu take it
that them remarks will go bey and
goose and goslin's. Make your p'int,
My p'int is this." says Bill aj he
draws a long breath and steps out to
;it room. "We ar' now in the rnidt
of the turmoil of a political cam
paign. Somebody Is goin to bo cleeted.
I ain't sayiu who it'll be, but the gold
en opportunity fur which Jericho has
sighed is at hand. When the newly
elected ottieial takes the oath of of
lice, ho will be escorted to and fro."
That's k'rect," says Deacon Spooner
ns Bill pauses fur breath. "The speak
er. al:i"t through yit, but he's made a
p'int already: When he refers to the
turmoil of campaign. It's not only high
flown language, but a strong p'int. Go
"That escort will not only do the pres
ident proud," continued Bill, "but
every Eiau In It will Iks mentioned by
all the papers in the United States.
They'll speak of his wife and children
and town and home, and he'll be a big
man fur the rest of his life. He kin be
cleeted sheriff without opposition, and
if auy one runs ag'iu hini fur the legis
lature they'll Ik? snowed under. What
I'm here tonight fur Is to ask the ques
tions: Why not organize the Jericho
Guards? And why shouldn't the
Jericho Guards le that escort?"
There was yellin aud whoopin fur
the next five inlnits, but when the dea
con could make himself heard he said:
"It's a p'int. gentlemen six or seven
p'ints. I've read all the speeches ever
delivered by Henry Clay or Daniel
Webster, nud loth of 'cm put together
never made the p'ints our Bill Lapham
has. Bein I hev the floor. I'll say I
favor the Idea. Yes.- sir. I'm with It
heart and soul. I want my name to
go down fut fur the Jericho Guards,
nnd I'm even willin to sacrifice myself
nud be captain of the company. S'posin
we hear from Abncr Jones on the sub
ject." "I s'pose it's known In this town that
my great-grandfather Mas killed at the
battle of Monmouth," says Abner as
he gets off the counter, "though I ain't
braggin about it. I'll jest say that
I'm willin to die fur my country any
time I'm called upon, and if I'm elected
captain of the Jericho Guards I'll
promise that no Invader shall set foot
on these shores and live for five min
Its." "Thar's a p'int in that," says the dea
con as he looks a bit put out. "When
a man's willin to die fur his country,
that's a p'int in his favor, but of course
we want to hear from other patriots.
How Is It with you. Moses ITutnler?"
"Docs any man here doubt that Iia
willin to die fur America?" asks Moses
ts he draws himself up. "My great- j
rrandfather didn't di at Monmouth.
but tbe blood of them seven uncles of I
mine that fell duria the civil war Sew ;
la my veins, and my watchword la
Liberty or death! As captain of tho
Jericho Guards you'll find me at the
front, and If I don't kill at least seven
Invaders a week you kin bounce me
"The seven uncles and seven InvaJ
ers Is a p'int, Moses." says the deacon,
"and I'm proud that we loth live in the
same town. Bill Laphani seems to be
oneasy, and I'll ask him if he has any
thinp more to say.""
"In the fust place." saya Bill, "I'd
like to know If everybody Is in favor
of orpanlzin the Jericho Guards."
Everybody swung his hat and yelled
out that be was.
"In the second place. I'd like to know
If everybody wants to 1h? captain."
EverylMjdy swung his hat and yellM
out that he did.
"But everybody can't be. protested
Bill. "I don't want nobody to charge
me with Itein selfish qr conceited, but
I'm tellin you that this idea is mine
and that I'm the man to boss the Jer
icho Guards. I believe I'm the only
man In this town who wanted to enlist
to flpht the Spaniards."
"Bill makes a p'int. nnd we can't de
ny It," says Deacon Ppooner, "but
when I offered to lead them guards to
victory or death I felt that I was the
man to do it. I don't want to crowd
Bill Lapham out of place, but"
"Neither do we!" yell 40 men.
"But he must see"
"Of course lie must!"
Then thar was yellin and shoutln and
n great uproar, and Bill I-aphnm said
It was a dupgoucd crowd, and he could
lick any two of 'em rolled together
Deacon Spooner hammered on the
stovepiiK with bis cane till he could be
heard, and then he said:
"It appears as If we all want to load
the Jericho Guards and die fur cur
country, and it further appears as if
this nieetin was gittin mad nlout sun-
thiu. I notice LIsh Billings over by
the 'lasses bur'Is. Lish, what d'you
think about things? D'you waut to be
captain, saint: as the rest"
"Noap," replies l.ish In his keerless
"Aln t you wilhn to no fur your

wouldn't be auy Jericho Guards to

continues J.lsh, "and when the war
was goin on and thar was talk that it
rni.'rht come to a draft the hull crowd
cf us went to the doctors to be examiu-
td. Wo had busts and ruptures ami
short legs and sprung knet. We had
consumption and rheumatism and
heart trouble. We was deaf and nigh

MULES, RATS AND MEN.
Miners Show tVladom In Paylntr Heed
to Certain Phenomena.
"Well, that isn't superstition; It's
reality," aud the coal uilue inspector
didn't ssccin a bit pleased with the
suggestion that superstition mfKht
sometimes be responsible for the ac
tions of minors.
"t'onl minors," he went on to say.
'are not superstitious. Hear noises?
Of course they do. but do people sup
pose those noises are imaginary? It
beats all how little is known generally
about coal mining.
"I-'olks get it into their heads." the
inspector continued, "that a man who
will quit work in a certain part of a
mine because he sees the rats desert
ing that section is superstitious when.
as a matter of fact, he simply displays
sound Judgment. Very soon after the
rats quit sounds will be heard, and
later on a slide follows. What would
have happened to the man had he
credited his fears to superstition by
disregarding the exodus of the rats
and the subsequent noises?
"Itats are the first of a mine's Inhab
itants to realize danger, and then
comes the mule. Man Is the last. So
It Is only natural that he should take
as positive fndicatlons of trouble the
actions of the others, and he should
not te regarded as a superstitious
creature on that account.
"After rats desert an entry It Is next
to Impossible to get a mule into it, not
because tlw? rats left, but because tho
mule realizes the danger. Loft to
themselves rats or mules would never
be caught in slides In mines, but It is
different with men, who will not fol
low the lead of the other two." Den
A Cruel Joke.
A Yale Summit girl recently played a
cruel joke on her mother, and this Is
how it happened: She accidentally
found a love letter that her father had
written to her mother In the halycon
days of their courtship. She read the
letter to her mother, substituting her
own name and that of her lover. The
mother raved with anger and stamped
her foot in disgust, forbidding her
daughter to have anything to do with
a man who would write such nonsen
sical stuff to a girl. The girl then gave
the letter to her mother to read, and
the house became so suddenly quiet
that 6he could hear the cat winking In
the back yard. Salisbury Press.

"One night last winter," said a Bos
ton man. "I came up from the south
with two friends of mine. They occu
pied the stateroom, and I was lodged
in a section outside. They were in a
hot discussion before they retired, and
one of them had finally become so
sleepy as to abandon the argument
I turned finally, as they did. but the
man to whom the argument had been
abandoned did not seem satisfied with
the victory he had won. nnd when I
left them he was busily eugaged In
trying to prolong the talk with his
"Shortly jfter I had fallen asleep I
was awakened by some confusion in
the aisle of the car. The train was nt
a dead stop, and then I heard the
voice of the conductor angrily ask of
the porter. Xow, who in thunder pull
ed that bell rope?" I had a shrewd
suspicion, but doomed it safe to lie
juiet and say nothing. Finally the
train start ed. nnd as they could not
find out who had jerked the bell rope
the car assumed its customary night
aspect. Presently the stateroom door
opened and one of my friends request
ed me to step in and decide a bet. It
seems that he who was not sleepy was
trying to tell the man who was some
thing to which the sleepy one refused
to listen on the ground that the noise
of the car wheels made it Impossible
for him to hear. The other man
promptly rang the bell and stopped
the train, as has already been told.
"The bet of $.") was as to who was
responsible for stopping the trn'n. The
sleepy one said the wide awake one,
because he had pulled the bell rope.
The wide awake one said It was the
sleepy one, because he had averred
that he could not hear what was said
to him because of the rumbling of the
train, which naturally led to the train
being stopped. I decided in favor of
the wide awake man. which effectually
waked the other up also. Which would
