How Three Women Found Relief.
While no woman is entirely free from periodical snfferin, it does not seem
to have been the plan of nature that woman should suffer so severely. JjyAlA
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is the most thorough female regu
lator known to medical science. It relieves the condition which produces so
much discomfort and robs menstruation of its terrors.
The three letters here published should encourage everywoman who suffers:
Aug. 6. 189.
"Dear Mrs. Pixkitam: I have
suffered since the a?e of sixteen with
painful menstruation. I have been
treated for months, and was told that
the womb had fallen a little. The
doctor says that is now In place again,
but. I still have the same pain. 1'lease
tell me what to do." Mrs. Emma
Ki riiu 112 Trautman St., Brooklyn,
K. !., N.Y.
Jan. 19, 1S99.
"Dfar Mrs. Pixkitam : After re
criviritf your reply to my letter of

ami am glad to tell you that I have

i "I saw your medicine so highly
recommended I thought I would write
to you for advice.
' My menstruation occurs every two
weeks, lasts a week, and is painful. I

some time. I 6uffer from sick head

"Since receiving your answer to
my letter I have been taking your
Vegetable Compound, and it has done
rne more good than any medicine I
have ever taken. My menses are all
right now, and appear once a month,
and I feel so much stronger. 1 shall
always praise your medicine." Miss
Maooie Pollard, 319 So. 4th St.,

your Vegetable Compound." Emma.
J. Pribble, Indianola, 111.
If there is anything about your case about which you would like special
advice, write freely to Mrs. Pinkham. No man will see your letter. She can
surely help you, for no person in America has such a wide experience in treat
ing female ills as she has had. She has helped hundreds of thousands of
women back to health. Her address is Lynn, Mass., and her advice ia free.
You are very foolish if you do not accept her kind invitation.

NEURALGIA There is no sense in wasting words about Neu
ralgia. Wc know that it causes terrible suffering, and the darting pains
'are enough to drive you mad. What a sufferer wants is relief. He wants
the pain to stop. He wants to be well and happy again. The way to
pet relief from neuralgia is to rub Omega Oil into the spot where tho
trouble lies. First bathe the part with hot water to open up tho
pores Then five it a good, thorough rubbing with Omega OiL This
liniment will be taken up by the flesh, and penetrate to the aching
nerves. It will give gratifying relief. It will soften, soothe and comfort-
It will overcome and banish the pain. Plenty of people will
doubt this, but their doubting does rot change the facts. Omega Oil
N is good for everything a liniment ought to be good for.

It was only a small galvanic current,
but it did the business quite effective
ly, and a certain prominent yourrg;
man has not seen bis very best girl
since leaving her at home Monday
night. He is engaged in taxiDg his
fertile brain trying to fix op a nice
pl&asible tale to fit a peculiar case.
The young man, whom we will call
Mr. Short, is known among his friends
as something of a good fellow, though
not excessively so. He is simply of
liberal views and has been known to
tip the "crock" several times when
the provocation was particularly
strong. But in the young lady above
referred to, whom we will call Miss
Long, though that isn't her real name,
he has found determined opposition
to all forms of dissipation. Her po
sition upon these inclinations of
masculine frailty has been so
clearly defined, in fact, that theyoung
man, being ordinarily something of a
diplomat, recently 'nought it best to
register a solemn vow to hand all his
old cronies the finger and forever
steer as wide as possible from saloons.
Now it happens that Miss Long is
employed in an office that is located
less than a mile from Second avenue.
In truth, she can at any time in the
day, with very slight exertion, get in
a position commanding an interesting
portion of that 'thoroughfare. This.
Mr. Short seems never to have real
ized, judging from what has trans
pired. One day early in the present
week, while traveling along Second
avenue, he was overtaken by an in
ward desire, and, pausing only long
enough to expectorate thoughtfully
upon the sidewalk, he entered a high
Strangely enough, at that very mo
ment, Miss Long happened to be gaz
ing into Second avenue. Mr Short,
by a personal peculiarity, was read
ily recognized and the place where
he disappeared from "view was
also noted. Being quick to siz-j
up a situation, Miss Long turned
to the telephone. She didn't wate

she commanded. Central was sur
prised, but complied and remained in
the circuit. "I Mr. Short there? I
wish to speak to him. please." That
gentleman, munching a couple of
coffae grains, stepped composedly to
tne instrument. A strange feminine
voice came over the phone. "Is this
Mr. Short?" "Yes, ma'am." Then
a voice no longer strange, "I'd like
to know, younjr man, what vou are
doinjr in that saloon ?"
Mr. Short is known amonj his
friends as a quick witted fellow.

Brown's Battered Watermelon.
. Colonel George W. Anderson, a men
ef splendid genius and rare oratorical
gifts, was stumping for Greeley and
Brown down In southwest Missouri.
One night In the midst of his speech an
old "fellow arose in the back of th
house and said:
' "Colonel Anderson, Is it true that
Governor Brown was so drunk at that
Yale alumni dinner that he buttered
his watermelon?" .
Colonel Anderson "reared back on his
pastern joints, straightened himself to
his G feet 2 and with a lion's roar an
"Yes, It is true that Governor Brown
buttered his watermelon at the Yale
alumni dinner, ami I am happy to in
form you that that is the only way In
which watermelons are eateu In polite
Anderson's happy retort was greeted
with a shout of laughter and a roar of
applause by bfs auditors. Ills Inter
rogator sat down discomfited,. and that
was the last ever heard of the story
of the buttered watermelon all of
which goes to demonstrate the value
of Damon's famous motto: "Iaudace!
L'audace! Toujour I'audace!"
Colonel Anderson was a wonderful
atumper. He was most emphatically
a rough diamond. In the, rough and
tumble, eatch-as-you-cah style of debat
ing he never hod a superior in Mis
