THE AEGTTS, SATURDAY, HAY 31, 1902.
President South End Ladies' Golf Club,
v Chicago, Cured by Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound After
the Best Doctors of Chicago Had
Failed to Help Her.
Such letter as the following must anrely convey conviction to the hearts
of all women that the great claims that Mrs. Pinkham trakes for her medicine
must be based upon positive evidence.
Is it reasonable, think yon. that we eonld hire nch women as Miss IIow
ard to speak well of L.ylia 12. I'inkham'H Vegetable) Compound just
for commercial reasons ? Imposbible ! and it is au insult both to her and to
Mrs. I'inkham to suggest such an idea ; therefore, let every woman read this
letter and believe, for it is as genuine in every particular as the eyes with
which you read these words.
Mrs. Pinkham Invite nil womfit who nre 111 to write her for
al vice. Address Lyun, Jlass., giving full particulars.

MISS LAUIiA HOWARD.
"Deati Mr. Pivkiiam: I can thank you for perfect health to-day,
and gladly do I aeknowlodgv it. life looked fo dark to me a year or
two ago. I h:vl constant pains, my limbs swelled, I had dizzy spells, and
never knew one day how I would feel the next. I was nervous and had
no appetite, neither could I sleep soundly nights. Eight lottles of
Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound, used in conjunction with
your Sanative Wash, did more for mo than all the medicines and the
skill of the doctors.. For eight months I have enjoyed perfect health.
I verily believe that most of the doctors are guessing and experimenting
when they try to cure a worn.m with an assortment of complications,
Kiich as mine; but you did not guess when j-ou mixed 3'our Compound:
you evidently know what you are giving suffering women and are sure of
v.'hat it will do. How I wish all suffering women could only know of 3our
remedy- there woald Iks less suffering and many thoxisands more happy
and healthy women in America." Laura Howard, 113 Jsewberry Ave.,
O, my sisters, I do pray you to profit ly Miss Howard's experi
ences; just a surely a. sho was cured of the troubles enumerated
in her letter, just so surely will Lyrila IZ. IMnkham's Vegetable
Compound cure every woman In the land who suffers from womb
troubles, iullamraation of the ovaries, kidney troubles, nervous

MISS MONIE BOWEY,
No. 38 Perry Street.
A couple of winters aeo I
clipped on a frozen sidewalk
and fell flat on my back. On
being examined I found that
I had sustained internal inju
ries which Laid me up for more
than two months. After that
I noticed that I had pains in
the back and groin which I
never had before. I doctored
and doctored for several
months but as the pains in
creased instead of erowin&r
better I decided that I was nut having the
right treatment. Reading in the papers
of the wonderful cures performed by
Vine of Cardui I wrote to one of the
parties and received a very satisfactory
reply and I immediately sent for some.
In a very short time I felt generally better
and after seven weeks faithful use I was
once more wetland strong. I have never
had a sick hour since and I daily bless

moment he Ion rued of the drowning,
which occurred ubout 1:15 u. in. Mou

who manned a skiff und had gone to
Hud Mikesell or his body, to get
aboard the boat.
The accident hapened about three

were murmurs in the crew and the
impatient ones demanded of ('apt.

the men, ('apt. Tromley complied
with their deman I when thev forced

among tin- crew, who were bitter in
their denunciation of his course. The

TO DECORATE GRAVES
Hundred:! visited Chippiannock cem

tributes- of flowers upon the graves
of the nation heroes. The feature
of the program carried out was the
ad.lress by Hon. ('. .1. Tisdel, of Chi
cago, assistant I'nited States district
attorney. In his opening remarks
Mr. Tisdel advanced a theory concern
ing the real cause of the civil war
somewhat out of the ordinary when
he ascribed to s-lavery a place merely
as an incidental cause, back of which
lay the great difference between the
leople of the north and those of the
south in their habits of life and
thought, as the real overshadowing
issue that nothing but the shedding
of blood could settle. The causes of
this difference were traced from the
time of the settlement of America
thiouph the days of the revolution
down to the very eve of the rebellion
and the combinations of circum
stances that made the residents of
the north plain, practical, centralized
and those of the south passionate,
careless, aristocratic, were enlarged
iijmhi. The effect of the war, in
bringing about a mixing of the two
peoples, provided the true remedy for
the differences, and commercial in

American war, have since completed
