Capt. W. A. F.lair left for Chicago
last evening to gather up a few thi-igs
there that his two boats need to lin
ish them for the work of the season
of l'iO:J. They are almost ready to
make the start, and in tine trim. The
Helen l'lair is finished, all but a few
small details, even to her painting.
The W. J. Young. Jr.. has been
through the hands of the reiiovaters
and repairers during the winter, and
she is ready for her paint, which is
yet to be added.
The Helen I Hair is going to carry
a direct . pressure water supply, for
boilers, staterooms, fire protection
it lit all other purposes. The old st;le
supply, furnished liy a. system of
tanks on the roof, is to be cut out
and a steam pump, practically in op
eration nil the time, and of ample ca
pacity, is to furnish the water in any
quantity that may be needed. This
is one of the good things that Ihe
new boat will possess, among t.tlv.'rs.
The timccard as arranged is expect
ed to catch a large ammuit of travel
that has not been had. The straight
all daylight run to I'.urlington from
this city on the Young, and the
straight run from lSurliiigton to this
city, without a- night stopover, are
features that attract a good many
people, while the chances for an af
ternoon round trij to Muscatine are
certainly going to 'make travel there
lively, and there are other improve
ments in sight.

Rev. Marguerite St. Omer Briggs,

Lecturer for the W. C. T. U., recommends
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
"Dear Mrs. Pixkham: My. professional work has for the past
twenty years brought me into hundreds of homes of sickness, and
I have had plenty of opportunity to witness the sufferings of wives
and mothers who from want, ignorance or carelessness, arc slowly
but surely being dragged to death, principally with female weakness
and irregularities of the sex. I believe you will be pleased to know
that dLytlia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound hes cured
more women than any other agency that has come under my notice.
Hundreds of women owe their life and health to you to-day, and, there
fore, I can conscientiously advise sick women to try it." Marguerite
St. Omer Briggs.

When women are troubled with irregular or painful menstruation,
Tveaknes.s,leucorrhoKi, displacement or ulceration ot the Womb, that Leur-iii;-down

remember there is one tried and true remedy. Lydia E. linkliami
Vegetable Compound at once removes such troubles.
No other medicine in the world has received such widespread and

What a stiff joint needs
more than anything else is
Omega Oil. The next need is plenty of massage, or rub
bing. The rubbing makes the blood flow faster, and the
Oil loosens up and softens the hard, stiff places. The first
thing to do with a stiff joint in machinery is to oil it,
and then work it back
and forth until all the
stiffness is gone. Now,
as a matter of fact, your
body is a machine, not
of iron, but flesh, mus
cles and joints, and you
want to keep it well
oiled with Omega
Oil if you expect) to
have it in good run
ning order. This is

knows it to be
