Help for Women Passing Through
Change of Life
Providence has allotted us each at
least seventy years in which to fulfill
our mission in life, and it is generally
our own fault if we die prematurely.
Nervous exhaustion invites disease.
This statement is the positive truth.
When everything becomes a burden
and you cannot walk a few blocks with
out excessive fatigue, and you break
out into perspiration easily, and your
face flushes, and you grow excited and
shaky at the least provocation, and
you cannot bear to be crossed in any
thing, you are in danger; your. nerves
have given out ; you need building up
at once ! " To build up woman's nerv
ous system and during the period of
change of life we know of no better
medicine than Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg
etable Compound. Here is an illus
tration. Mrs. Mary L. Koehne. 371
Garfield Avenue, Chicago, 111., writes :
" I have used Lydia K. Pinkbanf s egetabie
Compound for Tears In my family and it
never disappoints;- no when I felt that I was
near in n the change of life I commenced treat
ment with it. I took in all stout six bottles
and it did me a great deal of good. It stopped
my dizzy spells, pains in my back and the
headaches with which I bad suffered for
months before taking the Compound. I feel
that if it had not been for this great medicine
for women that 1 should not have been alive
to-day. It is splendid for women.old or young,
and will surely cure all female disorders."

VALUE OF LIVING
Discussed by H. A. Weld at the Men's
Meeting at the Y. M. C. A. Yes
"Permanent Value of Living" was
the subject of an address by H. A.
Weld at the men's meeting of the Y.
M. C. A. yesterday afternoon. The
speaker dealt with the question wheth
er we secure something of permanent
value for what we expend. He cited
the statement made that man has three
stories a basement, or physical na
ture, in which he lives the greater part
of the time; the first floor, or intellec
tual nature, where he sometimes goes,
but does not feel entirely at home, and
the highest floor, or moral nature, to
which he may never rise.
"Show what a man wants, and what
he is can be told," said the speaker.
He spoke of the three fundamental in
stincts, on which are based many of
man's desires, and the gratification of
which have much to do with the per
manent value he secures. The in
stincts are the worshipping instinct,
which prompts all primitive beings to
have some kind of a god; the homing
instinct, which causes a man to gather
a family about him, and the social in
stinct, which causes him to seek the
company of other human beings.
Yesterday afternoon the B. G. M.
club, of the junior department of the
association, was organized, the follow
ing officers being elected:
President -Walter Young.
Treasurer LeRoy Philbrook.
Secretary Clayton Simpson.
The club was organized a year ago
to assume a large part of the control
of the social and religious work of the
junior department. The organization
proved a great success last season.

Abandon Course. The committee of
Young People's societies comprising
the Star Course union is compelled to
announce that the patronage accorded
the course does not warrant continu
ing the same. The purpose for the
past five seasons has been to give the
community a first class series of con
certs and lectures at actual cost. In
this they have been successful until
last season, when there was an increas
ed expense and falling off in receipts
due to the world's fair, the campaign
and other causes, to leave a deficiency.
It was hoped that the community
would rally from last year's detraction
and come to the support of the union
and make the shortage this sea

appointed and feel that they have done
more than originally intended by giv

paid for, besides all time and labor
