Mrs. Annie McKay, Chaplain Sons of
Temperance, 326 Spadina Ave., Toronto, Cured of Severe Female Troubles by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. I " Dear Mrs. Pinkham : Being a mother of five children I have had experience with the general troubles of my sex. I was lacerated when one of my chUdren was born and from that hour I date all my afflictions. I found that within a few months my health was impaired, I had female weakness and serious inflammation and frequent flooding. I became weak and dizzy but kept on my feet, dragging through my work without life or pleasure. A neighbor . who had been helped by taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable . Compound insisted that I take at least one bottle. I did so and felt so much better that I kept on the treatment. For seven months I used the Compound faithfully and gladly do I say it, health and strength are mine once more. I know how to value it now when it was so nearly lost, and I appreciate how great a debt I owe you. I The few dollars I spent for the medicine cannot begin to pay what it , was worth to me. Yours very truly, Mrs. Anna McKay, Chaplain Sons of Temperance." I ' $5000 FORFEIT IF THE ABOVE LETTER IS NOT GENUINE.

DEFINITION OF "TEMPERAMENT" Wa A 1 He It omder Tills Poor CIIld at aest otu im ga The half-dozen blocks about Dupont circle in Washington include .the homes of as many scientists of - na tional reputation. These gentlemen, of course, know each other and . meet frequently. Not long ago one of their neighbors began to wonder whether such intimate intercourse among sci entists was a good thing, his cogita tion having had its rise in the follow ing incident: His little daughter has Just reached the age where she asks 200 questions a day. About a month ago her father spoke of some author as lacking the proper "temperament" for writing on history. That word temperament" apparently took root in the youngster's mind. What was temperament? She asked that question twice an hour for an entire week. Finally her father gave her a note to- Professor and sent her oft to find out. That sci entist answered the query as follows: "Temperament is an individual ten dency to the rise of a certain mental state." Father and daughter wrestled with that a little while and then applied 10 a second member of the scientific group for help". No. 2 called temperament an ensem ble of physical and mental traits aris ing from fundamental constitutional differences in individuals." This put the little girl's father com pletely at sea. So No. 3 was tried. His judgment was that "temperament is the psychic resultant of the whole organic life of the individual." By this time, says the Washington Star, hope was abandoned. But when No. 4 volunteered to make it clear the family spirits revived. "Temperament is a general disposition of the mind," he wrote, "the distinctions .of which depend on the dominance of one or the other of the physiological systems." And now the family dictionary is worn out. ,ti.-M,wvMiyw'Nfiii()vj. i i - senri i i IMPORTANT NOTICE TO STOCKHOLDERS AND OTHERS THE CONTINENTAL NATIONAL OIL & REFINING CO.

Merton Balfort, the hero, and his fellow soldiers John Acton and Robert Curtis are bound up together by both choice and circumstance much as were the three guardsmen " of Dumas, and their adventures are no less thrilling and romantic than the deeds of those classic heroes. Rarely has there appeared in fiction a maid of such versatile pow ers to charm and pierce the soul of a lover, as the tantalizing royalist, Deborah Philipse; for whom the hero gets into trap after trap, risking life and honor for her sake, only to be ignored and insulted a few moments afterward, until but that's the story; and a charming, graphic and original denouement it presents. D0DD, MEAD COMPANY Publishers 372 Fifth Avenue New York One Was Produced In the Shell Fresh-Water Alussel. A ball of beeswax introduced into the shell of a living fresh-water mus sel has resulted in producing the most remarkable artificial pearl in exist ence. It is about an inch and a half in length, oval in form and pink in color, and is now the property of the Smithsonian institution. The ball of wax was placed near the hinge of the bivalve, which, being kept in a tank of fresh water, was careful ly watched. The irritation of the wax caused the mollusk to protect itself by coating the foreign object with a smooth coating of pearl stuff the same material as that which is used in lining the inner surface of its shell. In the case in question the result was an enormous pearl. Owing to pres sure, however, the wax ball lost its spherical shape and became oval in form. At the end of two years the mussel was taken out of the tank and opened and the pearl removed. The wax af terward contracted owing to dryness, which caused the pearl shell to crack. This accident, while destroying the commercial value of the pearl, made it possible to observe the thickness of the nacreous covering, which is some what greater than that of an ordinary sheet of letter paper. If the pearl were not flawed, says the Washington. Star, it would be worth an enormous sum of money, but even as it is it la priceless as a curiosity. Mrs. Winslow's Soothlntr Syrnp."

Joke on Commander Mnlllffan Lieutenant Commander Richard T. Mulligan's reverence for discipline is traditional among naval officers, and therefore, in accordance with custom in both army and navy, is a perpetual challenge for the enlisted men to ex periment as far as they may with safe ty in evasion or breach of regulations. The triumph achieved in that direc tion by a petty officer compelled even Mr. Mulligan to smile when the story was told at the Brooklyn navy yard. Annoyed by the rough skylarking of a group of "jackies" who were off duty, Lieut. Commander Mulligan, without reflecting on the opening fur nished, called to the nearest warrant officer: "Master at Arms, clear that deck of every last one of those lubbers." "Every last one of you lubbers clear that deck," bellowed the Master at Arms, in the same breath with his "Aye, aye, sir," and as the sailors dispersed, convulsed with langhter at the terms of the command the man turned to his superior and gravely reported, "The deck is clear, sir." A senior officer who has religious scruples had overhead all, and stood aghast. With 'a glance in his senior's direction, Mr. Mulligan, as soberly as he could, remarked. "Master at Arms, when you pass my orders in future you need not ' be so literal." New York Times. Set Apart Da for Wedding's.
