Mrs. Louise M. Gibson Says That This
Fatal Disease is Easily Cured; by
jLydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Of all the diseases known with which the female organism Is afflicted, kid
ney disease is the most fatal. In fact, unless prompt and correct treatment is
applied, the weary patient seldom survives.
Being fully aware of this, Mrs. Pinkham, early in her career, gave ex
haustive study to the subject, and in producing her great remedy for woman's'
ills Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound was careful to see
that it contained the correct combination of herbs which was sure to control
that dreaded disease, woman's kidney troubles. The Vegetable Compound acts
in harmony with the laws that gorn the entire female system, and while
there are many so called remedies for kidney troubles, Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound I the only one - especially prepared
MRS. LOUISE 31. GIBSON,
Corresponding Secretary Woodlawn Country Club, Chicago, 111.
"Dear, Mrs. Pinkham: I felt very discouraged two years ago, I
had suffered so long with kidney troubles and other female complica
tions, and had taken so much medicine without relief that I began to
think there was no hope for me. Life looked so good to me, but what is
life without health ? I wanted to be well. ,
"Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound cured me and made
me welL and that is why I gladly write and thank you; six bottles
was all I took, together with your Pills. My headache and backache
and kidney trouble went, never to return; the burning sensa
tion I had left altogether; my general health was so improved I felt
as young and light and happy as at twenty.
"I am a sincere admirer of yours and feel that you must have a host
of friends all over this country who feel as I do, even though they do
not express it." Mrs. Louise M. Gibson, 4313 Langley Ave., Chicago, I1L
The troubles to which women are subject, because of thoar sex, are
legion. Every day a woman is liable to have a new pain. Excessive
worry may disturb the menstrual function and unsettle the nerves,
over-exertion may set up some abdominal inflammation, or a tritUng
accident derange the whole reproductive system.
If you feel that, there is anything at all unusual or puzzling about
your case, or if you wish confidential advice of the most experienced,
write to Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn, Mass., and you will Ihj advised free of
charge. L.j'(a" E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has cured and
Is curing thousands of eases of female troubles curing them in

A Scotchmaa'i Stheme For Iaera

, In a small town In England there la a
rich congregation which Is not charac
terized by lavish liberality. Time after
time the minister had vainly appealed
to his people to contribute more gener
ously to the funds of the chureh. The
members would indeed give something,
but it was nearly always the smallest
silver coin of the realm that was plac
ed on the plate. A shrewd Scotchman
who had recently come to the place and
Joined the church was not long in no
ticing this state of affairs, and a reme
dy soon suggested itself to his practical
mind. " -

sure enough, the collections began to

Sandyman?" said the pastor to him one
"It's a great secret," returned the
canny Scot, "but I'll tell you In confi
dence. The folk, I saw, mostly gave

money every Sabbath morning I care

Speaking of women in the Jewelry
business, a diamond merchant said:
"In other branches of the jewelry
trade than diamond cutting women
have made some unqualilied successes.
Not one of Eve's daughters, from roy

Many are well versed in the tricks of

"But when it comes to the real cut

tience, Judgment and steadiness of

The following letter was written by
the private secretary of President Kru
ger of the Transvaal in reply to an in
vitation from Johannesburg to attend
a ball given in 18'Jl In celebration of
Queen Victoria's birthday:
"In reply to your favor of the 12th
Inst, requesting me to ask his honor, the
state president, to consent to the mak
ing use of his name as patron on the
occasion of a ball to lve given at Johan
nesburg on the 20th inst.. I have been
Instructed to inform you that whereas
his honor considers a ball as Baal's
service, for which reasons the Lord or
dered Moses to kill all offenders, where
as such is consequently contrary to his
honor's principles, his honor cannot
consent to the misuse of his name In
connection with such a ball."
A Strnncje Feasting; Cnatom.
There was a strange custom in the
Isle of Lewis when the people used to
gather to the church of St. Mulvay at
night, each family bringing provisions
and each family furnishing a peck of
malt, which was brewed Into ale. One
who was chosen for the purpose waded
Into the sea up to his middle and pour
ed out a cup of ale, calling on a sea god
called Shony to favor the people
through the coming year. The people,
after seeing the -ceremony performed,
returned to the church and then went
to the fields- to spend the rest of the
night id revelry. London Standard.

Bummer," said the electrical engineer,
"and while we had the right of way
we tried to be easy with the farmers
whose gates we passed. We finally
struck one old fellow, a widower, who
swore he'd shoot the first man who put
pick and shovel Into the ground. I
used all the usual arguments, but with
out effect, and finally I said:

" 'Very nice woman. :
" 'She Is.
" 'Wouldn't object to marrying again,
" That's what's I've hoard too.'
'I don't see why she and yon
shouldn't make a match,' I continued.
" 'Waal, I've sometimes thought it
might come around, he replied, with a
" 'I see only one drawback. There
are two or three others after her, and
some of them may get ahead of you.'
"lTm! I never heard of that.
"'That is the case. Suppose you are
working in the field some day nnd all
of a sudden you make up your mind
to ask the widow to be yours.'
" 'Mebbe I shall do that very thing.'
" 'Well, it will take you an hour to
walk down there after you've got on it
clean 6ldrt and greased your boots.
What may not happen in that hour?
Suppose some other man is ten minutes
ahead of you. Suppose, owing to this
electric road, which runs right by the
widow's door, you were landed there
ahead of all others by half an hour.
The widow is yours, her farm is yours,
and you are made happy for life. Oth
"There's no otherwise. about It.' he
chipped in. 'You jest go ahead with
your old railroad, and the quicker you
finish It the quicker I'll step aboard

know much nlout electricity, but if it's
goin' to bring me a wife and a farm

. Nothing contributes more to the high

habit of enjoying things. Whatever
your calling in life may be. whatever
misfortunes or hardships may come to
you, make up your mind resolutely
that, come what may, you will get the
most possible real enjoyment out of ev

capacity for enjoying life by trying to
find the sunny side of every experience
of the day. Resolutely determine that
you will see the humorous side of
things. No matter how hnrcK or un
yielding your environment may seem
to be, there is a sunny side if you can
only see it. The mirth provoking fac
ulty, even under trying circumstances,
is worth more to a young man or wo
man starting out in life than a fortune
without it. Make up your mind that
you will be an optimist; that there
shall be nothing of the pessimist about
you; that you will carry jour own sun
shine wherever you go.
There is longevity in the sunny soul
that eases our jolts and makes our

s Always Dylnar.
Life consists in a series of changes of
tissue, and the human economy is sim
ply, so far as its material part is con
cerned, a machine and primarily de
pends on food as the most important
factor in keeping it in working order.
When it is said that we commence to
die ns soon as we are born, it of course
means that certain parts of the body
immediately begin to perish; their ex
istence is ephemeral; they come and
go, are replenished and decay. They
are the dying parts of that system of
life which may last a little while, but
which must eventually jleld to the In
exorable law of nature. The nails, the
hair, etc.. are observable as an instance
of this decay. The same rule applies
to every other organ nnd tissue of the
body, though it is not palpable to the
naked eye. The skin is always peeling.
The food that is taken in the one hour
nourishes the system and ejects that
which was taken the hour before.
