Mrs. L. A. Harris, a Prominent Member
of a Chicago Woman's Political Club, tells
how Ovarian Troubles may be Cured with
out a Surgical Operation. She says :
' " Doctors have a perfect craze for operations. The minute
there is any trouble, nothing but an operation will do them ; one
hundred dollars and costs, and included in the costs are pain, and
agony, and often death. '
" I suffered for eight years with ovarian troubles ; spent hundreds
of dollars for relief, until two doctors agreed that an operation was
my only chance of life. My sister, had been using Lydia E. link
liam's Vegetable Compound for her troubles, and been cured,
and she strongly urged me to let the doctors go and try the Com
pound. I did so as a last resort ; used it faithfully with the Sana
tive Wash for five months, and was rejoiced to find that my troubles
were over and my health restored. II women would only try Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound first, fewer surgical operations
would occur." Mrs. L. A. Harris, 278 East 31st St., Chicago, 111. .

all-gone n and 44 want-to-le-lef t-alone " feelings, blues, and hopelessness,

rinkham's Vegetable Compound at once removes such troubbs.

Remember, that while the light rainfall which pre
vailed during Jalj in Nebraska and other of the older states, injured
the corn crop t his year, 50 per cent of the acreage in Nebraska was
planted in wheat, which made a big crop for which the farmers are
getting big money. Ask C, B. & Q. agent for particulars about

- A striking example of the magical
effects capable of being produced by
any one conversant with the laws of
sound was shown by the late Trofessor
Tyndall in one of his lectures. He
placed on the floor of the room an ordi
nary guitar. No one was near, and yet
some unseen hand drew sweet music
from it so that all could hear. The
guitar was replaced by a barp, with
the same result. A wooden tray was
then substituted, and even, from that
Issued mysterious harmories. f
The marvelous effect was simply due
to the sound conducting quality of wood.
In a room beneath and separated by
twotloors was a piano, and connecting
the rooms was a tin tube containing a
deal rod, the end of wbich emerged
from the floor. The rod was clasped
by rubber bands so as to close the tube,
and the lower end of the rod then
rested on the sound loard of the piano.
As the guitar rested upon the upper
end of the rod the sounds were repro
duced from the piano, and when the
sound board of the harp was placed on
the rod it seemed as though the actual
notes of the harp were heard, the notes
of the piano being so like those of the

A Far Look.
Three visitors traveling In the Isle
of Man thought they would visit Snae
fell, the king of Manx mountains.
When walking up toward the maun
tlan, they espied an old shepherd com
ing toward them. They thought they
would take a' rise out of him, so oue
accosted him, saying:
."They tell me, old man, you can see
England, Scotland, Ireland and even
as far as America from the top of this
"Oh, yes," said the old man. "If
you will come with me, I will show
you much further than America."
. So, chuckling to themselves, they de
cided to follow him. After trudging
for about half an hour up the moun
tain side In a boiling sun they began
to feel rather fagged and kept asking
the shepherd how much further they
had to go.
lie kept urging them on a little fur
ther until at last the three visitors
lay down on the grass and said they
would go no further for any sight.
"Now," said the old man, "If you
will sit here long enough you will see
I The Tanaina Proeeaa.
The slowness of the process of tan
ning. Is largely due to the difficulty with
which the tannin penetrates Into the
bide. As the penetration progresses
tbo outer part of the hide becomes con
verted into leather ani is thereby made
impervious; consequently the rate of
penetration decreases. Months of soak
ing in the tan pit are therefore neces
sary for thick hide. Many attempts
have been maue to hasten this absorp
tion of tannin by hide. The methods
used Include circulating the tan liquor
so that fresh portions are continually
presented to the hide, forcing the liquid
through the hide by pressure and using
strong aqueous extracts of tanniug ma
terials. It has been sought to attain the same
object by passing a current of electric
ity through the vat in wbich the hides
are suspended. One such process has
been found to shorten the time of tan
ning to a quarter of that necessary
when no current Is used, and the leath
er Is said to be unexceptionable. Elec

I A Wonderful Echo.
' Many wonderful echoes are known,
but the one which takes the first place
seems to be that of the old palace of
Simonetla, near Milan, which forms
three sides of a quadrangle. The re
port of u pistol Is said to be repeated
by this echo CO times, and Addison,
who visited the place on a somewhat
foggy day, wben the air was unfavor

The Glraffe'a Timidity.
A giraffe la very timid on hearing
6light sounds, but is Indifferent to loud
ones. A writer In The Leisure Hour
says: "Noisy sounds, like a man walk
ing by with hobnail boots, it does not
notice, but a lady coming in with hard
ly more sound than the rustling of her
dress makes it start, with pricked ears
aud eyes distended. We remember
well, after a terrible explosion of gun
powder on a barge on the canal, ask
ing the keeper of the giraffes of that
day bow they had taken it and he said
he was surprised how very little notice
they took. They Jumped to their feet,
but almost at once lay down again
when they found nothing happened.
"But," he added, "if I were at night
time to creep along that gallery in my
socks they would be so scared that I
believe they would dash themselves to
bits." They fear the lurking foe, and
a blng bang scares them less than a
faint, rustling sound. They are In that
respect very decrlikc."
