I had severe I pains in my left side I every month and had I fever and sick dizzy spells and such pains during my periods, which lasted two weeks. I heard of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound doing others so much good and I thought I would give it a trial. I have been very glad that I did, for now 1 feel much stronger and do all of my work. I tell my friends when they ask me what helped me, and they think it must be a grand medicine. And it is. You can use this letter for a tes timonial if you wish.Mrs. HARRY A. WILSON, R. F. D. 6, Clearfield, Pa. The experience and testimony of such •women as Mrs. Wilson prove beyond a doubt that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege table Compound will correct such trou bles by removing the cause and restor ing the system to a healthy normal con dition. When such symptoms develop as backaches, bearing-down pains, dis placements, nervousness and "the blues"a woman cannot act too promptly in trying Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound if she values her future com fort and happiness. If Not Now, When? Judge (to old man)—Are you not ashamed, such an old man, to steal? Old Man—Well, your honor, when I was .young I was asked If I was not ashamed, such a young fellow, to steal?

Another angle of the possible effect Jf action by the state legislature of a state hydro-electric site came to light at a meeting of the hydroelectric com mission, which has had charge of the surveys so far and which formally, in dorsed and recommended to*the legis lature the engineers' findings favor ing the Mobridge site on the Missouri river. It has been generally assumed that whichever site is adopted by the legislature and when final action is taken rival site booster^ would refer their decision to a vote of the people. It is the belief of the commission that since there was a popular vote to con stitutionally authorize a hydro-electric plant no action taken by the legisla ture to carry*it into existence can be referred any more than the prohibition vote could be referred in Ohio. It is a question which may, have to be decided by the courts. The 20th annual review of progress of South Dakota by Doane Robinson, of the state historical department is just out and one of the features in the detail of activities of the different state and municipal affairs is the showing of taxes called for to main tain *the state and its sub-divisions for the year 1920. The total amount asked was $27,550,312, which was an increase of $6,079,599 over the de mands of the previous year. Out of this total the school and county, taxes took $13,227,214, the counties calling for ?$9,326,666 for their maintenance and the schools for $8,900,548. The demands for state purposes and mu nicipal purposes were very near the same amount the state asking *or a little over $3,500,000 and the munici palities for a little less than that amount, while the township takes over $8,000,000. The hydro-electric commission takes exception to the statement which is circulating in the state that it will ask for an appropriation from the state at the coming session, when the matter of finance is to be one of the leading ones of the session. The commission denies this, declaring that it is not asking for a cent in appropriation. Members of the commission declare they will ask for a grant of credit from the state which will enable the plant to pay its own way antt at the same time save the people of the stat# a million and a half dollars in coul bills annually,, and two and a half million in electric light bills each year. It is es timated that this saving alone would pay for the plant in four years. The ice men of South Dakota now are experiencing some of the anxieties which farmers encounter during the summer when they are coddling their growing crops. Thus far this winter ice on the streams of South Dakota has not frozen to a sufficient thick ness for cutting and storage purposes, and as a result comparatively a small part of the ice harvest has been com pleted. The high price of coal has no terrors for a large number of residents cf Spearfish, who havg "cut out" the coal man and are burning wood this winter.

Eight indictments have been re turned against four retail coal con cerns of Sioux Falls by a special United States grand jury which was in session several days In Sioux Falls. They are charged with profiteering in coal sold to consumers in Sioux Falls and vicinity. The 13-year-old son of Clarence Dis brow was shot and killed at their home in Alcester. The boy and his brother were wrestling for the possession of a shotgun, when it was discharged and shot one of them fa the face and breast. The buildings and tracks of the state coal mine have been completed and with the new equipment three cars of coal are being put out for each day, filling orders which are coming in, but with the equipment a larger amount could be put out in case of a sufficient demand Wagner elevator men have been swamped with corn during the last few weeks.

The fish are mostly catfish, buffalo, carp and sheephead.

Owing to fine winter weather and abundance of pasture, bow and grain, stockmen in western South Dakota and eastern Wyoming report cattle and sheep in best condition. Reports from many towns over the state Indicate that ice skating rinks are popular, and numerous towns are putting them in for the enjoyment of their young people. At a special election held In Rapid City, a majority of the voters decided in favor of the employment of a city manager, but defeated the proposition to establish a municipal court. The local municipal light and power plant at Burke is proving a grpat suc cess. The town has excellent service, with a power raft of six cento and a heat rate of five cents.
