In the vast retail establishments of large cities, many
women are employed as saleswomen .
Men formerly held the positions that women now hold,
and while women's organism is less strong than men's, they
are expected to do the same work. Their duties compel them
to be on their feet from morning to night, and many of them,
in a short time, contract those distressing complaints called
Then occur irregularities, suppressed orpainful menstru
ation, weakness, indigestion, ltueorrhcea, general debility,
and nervous prostration.
They are beset with such symptoms as dizziness, faint
ness, lassitude, excitability, irritability, nervousness, sleep
lessness, melancholy, " all-gone " and " want-to-be-left-alone "
feelings, blues, and hopelessness.
In such cases there is one tried and true remedy. Lydia
E. I'inkham's Vegetable Compound at once removes
such troubles. The following letters prove this. They also
prove the value of Mrs. Pinkham's advice.
Dear Mrs. Pixkham : I take pleasure in writing you a lew lines
thanking' you for your advice. I diil just as you told me in taking your
medicine, and owe my life to you. You are like a mother to your sex. I
was awfully sick, was all run down and felt sick all over. I looked like a
person brought out of the grave. My face was as white as the driven snow.
1 was always tired after doing a little work and would have to sit down.
I was troubled terribly, with headaches and my appetite was not good ;
also, troubled with shortness of breath something awful for about a month.
I could not go up one flight of stairs without being tired and having to
stop to get my breath. I was feeling just as miserable as could be. I took
two bottles of Lydia C. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
and cannot express my thanks to you for what your medicine has done for
me." MISS M. F.f 35 Devon fct., Urove llall, Koxbury, Boston, Mass.
I Can Work Every Day in the Week Now."
"Dear Mbs. Ptskham : I write this letter for you to publish for the
benefit of poor, suffering women. Lytlia E. I'inkbam's Vegetable
Compound has done me a great deal of good. I have taken three
bottles and feel like a new woman. When I began the use of your medi
cine I was hardly able to be up ; could not do half a day's work. I ached
from head to foot, was almost crazy, had those bearing-down pains, and
stomach was out of order. Now all of these troubles have left me and I
can work every day in the week and not feel tired." MRS. JENNIE
FREEMAN, 403 Pennsylvania Ave., Lima, Ohio.
OLD PEOPLE After a man or ,
woman has lived 50 or more years
the machinery of thebody is pretty
well worn out. Stop a minute and ,
think how many miles you
have walked in all those
years how many thou
sands of pounds you have
lifted how many hours
you have stood on your
feet how many times
your joints have moved
back and forth how
many times youhave over-,
done things in work and
pleasure. Do you wonder
that you have pains and
aches? Isn't it about
time you did some
thing for your poor
body? Get a bottle
of OmegaOilat once
and rub it into every

spot on your neck, shoulders, arms," back, ; hips, legs, knees and feet
where there is an ache. Rub it in good and hard, and the first thing

Suuday ami wrote two letters. The
last was stained by tears when it was
taken possession of by the sheriff.
"Heat rest Kthel." the missive began.
Then the convict explained that the
weddinjr. which lie says was to have
taken place today, must be postponed.
"My health has failed." wrote the
weeping robber, "and 1 must take ai
long voyaige. You may not see me
again iu years. When I return 1 will
be stroug again:" The letter was ad
dressed to Miss Ethel Sharkey. U71

of misery the robber was endeavoring
to hide from the girl the disgrace
which his love for her had caiuseU.
Sorry lie Cannot Tay His Debt.
The other letter was to .Mrs. Cath
erine Tierce, "5 Indiana street. Its
contents showed that ax convict may
be possessed of an extraordinary mix
ture iu the shape of morals. The let
ter expressed Williamson's regret that
he was unable to pay :i small amount
which he owed Mrs. Pierce for room
rent, an id aisked her not to judge him
harshly. Williamson is atltout - years

The new citarrh cure is not a salve.

pleasant tasting tablet containing the
best specifics for c-ttarrh in a coucen-
trated, convenient form.
The old style of catarrh salves and
ointments are creasy, airiy ana in

paration being in tablet form is al
ways clean ana convenient.
The new catarrh cure is superior
to catarrh powders because it n a
notorious fact that many catarrh
powders contain cocaine.
Tne new catarrh care is called

combination of blood root, beachwood
