Teas Mrs. PrsrxBXM: I feel it my duty to acknowledge to
you the benefit that your advice and Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound have done for me.
" I had been suffering with female troubles for some time, could
walk but a short distance, had terrible bearing down pains in lower
part of my bowels, backache, and pain in ovary. I used your medicine
for four months and was so much better that I could walk three time
the distance that I could before.
I am to-day in better health than I have been for more thai
two years, and I know it is all due to Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
" I recommend your advice and medicine to all women who suffer."

And All Other Forms of this Common
and Annoying Disease Cured by
the Pyramid Pile Cure.
Thousands of men and women suffer
from some form of piles without either
knowing the exact nature of the trouble,
or knowing it, carele&sly aliuw it to run
without using the simple means cf a
radical cure.
The failure of sajves and ointment to
sure piles has led many sufferers to be
lieve the only permanent cure to but a
surgical operation, but surgical opera
tions are dangerous to life and more
over very expensive and by no means
always or even often successful.
The safest and surest way to cure
any case of piles whether itching, pro
truding or bleeding ia to us the Pyra
mid Pile Cure, composed of heaiing
vegetable oils and absolutely free from
mineral poison and opiates.
Mr. Wm. Handscnu of Pittsburg. Pa.,
after suffering severely from bleeding
piles wrires as follows:
"I take pleasure writing these few
lines to let you know that I did not
sleep for three months except for a short
time each night because of a bad case
of bleeding piles. I was down in bed and
doctors did me no good.
"A good brother told me of Pyramid
Pile Cure and 1 bought from my drug
gist three fifty cent boxes. They com
pletely cured me and I will soon be
able to go to my work again."
The Pyramid Pile Cure is not only
the safest and surest pile remedy, but it
is by far" the widest known and most
popular, because so many thousands
have tried it and found it exactly as
Kveiy physician and druggist in the
country knows the Pyramid Pile Cure
and what it will do.
S--nd to Pyramid Drug Co., Marshall.
Mich., for little book on Cause and Cure
of Piles, mailed free to any address, or
better yet get a fifty cent box of the
remedy itself at the nearest drug store

The clubs are continuing with their
work of school room decoration, but
probably the Junior Atlanteans have
done more this year than any other
club. They have been devoting their
attention almost exclusively to Wash
ington school, the school for colored
children on Washington vmue be
tween Eleventh and Twelfth streets.
Four large picture have been bung
this year one of Washington, Christ in
the Temple, Peace, and one of Queen
Louise, and in addition to these each
member has given one passe partout.
Some are colored but all are of an ex
cellent school room size. Fifteen pic
tures have been placed in the first grade
room, and two in each of the other
rooms. Last year the fourth grade
room was furnished with pictures
through the exertions of Mrs. E. li.
Stotts, of the Junior Atlautean club, who
solicited all of the pictures herself. In
addition to the pictures, a number of
potted plants have been given by this
club. i i
