When a woman is nervous and irritable, head and back ache, feels tired all the time, loses sleep and appetite, has pains in groins, bearing-down sensation, whites and irregu larities, she is not "worn out," but feels as if she were. Such symptoms tell her that a womb trouble is imminent, and she cannot act too promptly if she values her future comfort and happiness. The experience and testimony of some of the most noted women of America go to prove, beyond a question, that Ly dia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound will correct all such trouble at once by removing the cause and restoring the organs to a healthy and normal condition. If in doubt, write Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn, Mass., as thousands do. MRS. KELLOGG'S STATEMENT. " One year ago I read a letter In a paper telling how much good one woman had derived from Lydla E.

The Journal of Commerce prints the following: Reports giving the comparative citric ncid test by Stillwell and Gladding, chemists, to the New York produce ex change, of selections of California and Ficily lemons, have attracted much at tention in green fruit circles. The com raris.ons were as follows: 91 California lemons would yield one United States pallon of juice; 128Mj Mediterranean lemons would yield one United States pallon of juice. The specific gravity of the juice in each was 1.041. Three hun dred California lemons would yield 450 nunces, .avoirdupois, juice, containing 8.64 ounces, crystal citric acid) 300 Med iterranean lemons would yield 325 ounces of juice, containing 19.70 ounces crystal citric acid. The criticism of the fruit growers was chiefly that the date selected for the test was a most unfair one, in that it com pared Mediterranean fruit which was among the first of the season and which had not matured, with California fruit at its best stage. It is expected that the fruit importers' union will take the mat ter up in. the near future and will prob ably have an Independent test made. The Best Plaster.

Reception Given British Com mander at Cape Town. Cape Town, Dec 11. At the reception In honor of Lord Roberts yesterday when the British commander rose to re spond, after the presentation to him of the sword and casket, all present rose to their feet, cheering and waving hand kerchiefs. The demonstration continued for some minutes. At its conclusion, Lord Roberts made an eloquent address. After expressing deep thanks for the honors accorded him, he said the war in South Africa had a peculiar interest for him inasmuch as it enabled him to brin;? to what he hoped was a successful con clusion the work entrusted to him 20 years ago that of dispelling by force of arms if necessary, the aspirations of the Boers to render themselves independent of British control. Referring to his abortive visit to the Cape in 1881, he said: 'The wisdom of this world is foolish ness with God. The guiding hand of the omnipotent will bring good out of what to our finite understanding was the most unfortunate war of 1S81, for that war could not have consolidated the whole British Empir'e as firmly together as this had done because it was fought by regulars alone, whereas the present war was fought by the militia, yeomanry and volunteers, the admirable and workman like colonial contingents all fighting as brothers in arms under the dear old flag of the queen." In this respect Lord Roberts said he held the unique position of the first field marshal having the honor to command such an imperial outburst. He was con vinced, he declared, that this spontan eous outburst of patriotism was not ephemeral. England had only to give the signal and her sons would again flock to her banner from the ends of the world. Never had a mother more rea son to be proud of her sons than had England today. God had brought them out of what in the dark days of Decem ber had appeared to them the valley of the shadow of death; and they could now remember the days of tribulation with deep gratitude for the mercy vouchsafed them. Lord Roberts then paid a deeply mov ing tribute of gratitude to all who had worked with him. He added that his in terest in South Africa would not . cease onleaving its shores, but that he should watch its settlement with the utmost eagerness. Dwelling upon the necessity for co-operation between the Dutch and English, he said it would be his proudest boast if he could claim to have done nothing but what stress of war had compelled to hinder the friendly fusions of the two races in the republics. They must try to forgive and forget all that tends to bitterness of feeling, leaving the Idea that nothing remained to be atoned for on either side. "God has given into our hands." said the field marshal, " a great heritage, for which a heavy price has been paid in the blood of the best and bravest ard we must not be neglected of the trust, as we have been in the past, but must be able to give a good account of our stewardship, and must remember there are other duties than national glorifica tions." He declared he could not better con clude his speech than by quoting the first verse of Kipling's recessional: "God of our fathers, known of old; Lord of our far-flung battle line. Beneath whose awful hand we hold Dominion over palm and pine; Lord God of Hosts be with us yet. Lest we forget, lest we forget." HEAD OFF TRUSTS. Propositions For State to Take Hold of Salt and Oil Production. The citizens of Decatur county are Join ing in a petition to the legislature for the establishment of a state salt plant in con nection with the reformatory at Hutchin son, on the same plan the binding twine plant was established at the state peni tentiary. Another petition is also being circulated asking the legislature to provide means for the condemnation or purchase of oil lands to enable the state to produce oil for its citizens and taxpayers and there by place the product above the control of the Standard Oil company. V. D. Street, ex-speaker of the house of representatives. Populist, originated this plan. The preamble of the petition concerning the salt plant follows: "Whereas, It was announced by the telegraphic dispatches in the columns of the daily papers about November 12, 1000, that the' salt trust had advanced the price of salt 100 per cent; and, "Whereas, At the reformatory, Hutch inson. Kansas, the state owns 40 acres of land underlaid by a vein of salt 300 feet thick and as fine as is found in the world; and. "Whereas, A committe of the legislature of 18S9 (See House Journal of 1SS9, page 970 recommended that a salt well be sunk and a salt plant be established at the re formatory to be operated by the prisoners of that institution, and that an appropria tion be made for that purpose: "Wherefore, "We, the undersigned citi zens of Kansas, would respectfully peti tion your honorable body to pass a law providing for the establishment of a salt plant at the state reformatory at Hutchin son, Kansas, and making, ample appro priation therefor, for the purpose of man ufacturing salt and selling the same to the citizens of Kansas at the actual cost of production, thereby relieving the people of Kansas from the exorbitant exactions of the salt monopoly. The oil production petition follows: "Whereas. The establishing of a bind ing twine plant at the penitentiary by the last legislature has proven such a grand success in regulating the price of binding twine and preventing the twine trust from exacting extortionate prices from the farmers, and- "Whereas, Coal oil is found In abund ance in several localities in the state of Kansas and it is evident from the larere end frequent dividends declared that the Standard Oil company is receiving a greater amount for its products than it is justly entitled to, and is aggregating great wealth in the hands of the few at the expense of the many. "Therefore, We. he undersigned peti tioners, residents of Kansas, earnestly re quest the legislature to pass a law to en able the state to acquire by condemnation or purchase, oil lands or wells and estab lish refineries to produce oil and sell the same to the people of Kansas at actual cost of production." Concerning these-two suggestions, Mr. Street says: "There is no question concerning the feasibility of these plans. The people will be benefited and the combines only will suffer. This being true, and no one will dispute it. and the advantage all in favor of the state and its people, there is no reason why both of the new enterprises should not be inaugurated." Copies of these petitions are being sent out all over Kansas and an effort is being made to interest the taxpayers of every county. MRS. HENRY'S MIND. Her Brother Says It Has N ot Been Affected by Her Trouble. Mrs. George Henry, of No. 135 Chand ler street, the mother of Ira Henry who is detained in Albuquerque on charges of infanticide, "is not, as reports have tended to show, losing her reason," said S. R. Miller, a brother of Mrs. Henry. "A grave injustice is done Mrs. Henry. It is true that she has been prostrated by the published reports of the trouble in which .her son is unfortunately in volved at Albuquerque. But it is not true that she lost her reason, or that she is mentally deranged or that the family have apprehensions o such a result." SIX DAY CYCLE RACE. , Leading Team Smashing Records in Madison Square Garden. New York, Dec. 11. There were nine teams in the six day bicycle race at Madison Square Garden this morning at 8 o'clock after a record breaking 24 hours, in which one champion was forced to quit and a number of other riders were raced off their wheels. The terrific pace set by the three leading teams is still maintained and there was a crowd present all through the early morning hours cheering the riders. There were numerous changes among the leading teams early this morning and the fast clip set by each failed to make any especial gain for any of them except a few laps gained on the tail enders, Muller and his partner. ' McFarland crossed the 600 mile mark at 4:40 this morning, being miles ahead of the record for that time. Twenty minutes later the team score with that of two other leaders was 605 miles and 6 laps. This was 11 miles and 2 laps ahead of the record made by Miller and Waller in the Garden last year. A few minutes before seven o'clock the men settled down to a 15 mile an hour pace and lagged along at this for some time. The riders began the forenoon hours with a wholesale fall, in which more men piled up over each other inside of two seconds than in any mishap hither to. None was seriously injured, al though Pierce was badly cut about the legs and McFarland received a varied array of bruises. It happened a few minutes after 8 o'clock when Frederick had just relieved Fisher. In the scram ble for places that usually occurs at such times. Waller and Gimm came to gether and both went down. McFarland rode into them, while Simar, Babcoclc and Pierce following fast behind were piled on top of the heap. Two of the wheels were quite demolished. The ref eree decided to attach no blame for the accident and the lost laps were restored to all the riders who had fallen. All of them were back on the track within a few minutes except McFarland. The 650th mile was finished at 7:35 o'clock, McEachern leading. This time is 27 min utes better than that made last year. A HONEYMOON IN CRETE. Denver Girl to Marry One of the Chiefs of the Isle.

San Francisco, Dec 11. Capt. Dever eaux Shields, of the Twenty-ninth in fantry, U. S. A., has been invalided home on account of two wounds received in one of the most thrilling adventures of the war in the Philippines. Captain Shields and 52 men left Santa Cruz on the island of Marinduque on September 11 last for the purpose of reconnoitering. Two days later they fell into an am bush and were fired upon by about 150 men with rifles, who were supported by about 2.000 men with bolos. Captain Shields, telling of the engage ment, said: "I was twice wounded and fell unconscious, but soon recovered, and then gave the order for the command to fight its way back to the station. I told them to leave me with a man from the hospital corps. "I dropped behind a rice stak and told the men to raise the white flag. The insurgents continued to fire at us. The men fought their way back a short dis tance and were surrounded and tiad to surrender or be killed. "After the insurrectos came to me, one of them took all my belongings. Another man was just going to shoot me when I saw a hand and arm come forward and strike up the gun. "We were kept in native hovels for twelve days, and then we started on a march over mountains, through dense forests and across rivers, compelled to sleep in mud and rain, and given only the dirtiest water with which to wash our wounds. This continued until about October 12, when we were tuid that or- A form of disease may become so com mon that it is regarded as a necessary condition.

Similarly, the prevalence of irregular periods among young women, ana the commonness of debilitating drains among married women have created the mischievous idea that these are the natural conditions of womanhood. In normal health the periods should be regular and painless and there should be neither drains nor pains for the mar ried woman. To regain that normal condition of health is possible to every woman who will make a trial of Dr. Pierce's "Favorite Prescription. It regu lates the periods, dries up the drains, and cures ulceration and inflammation. Sick women can consult Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y., by letter without charge.

GEORGESON RETURNS Says Gold Is Not the Only Resource of the North Mining Country. Seattle, Wash., Dec. 11. Prof. C. C. Georgeson, special agent of the United States agricultural department, in charge of the experimental station in Alaska at Sitka, has arrived here from the north for the purpose of making his annual report to the government. He has proven that Alaska will ultimately be as promising a field for agriculture and stock raising as it now is for mining. He was sent to the north in May, 1S38, and his first work was to ascertain what could be produced there in the way of vegetables. He succeeded in raising choice barley and oats. Speaking of his experiments in Alaska Professor Georgeson said today: "There is not the slightest doubt that grain can be matured almost anywhere in Alaska. I have this year obtained samples of perfectly ripe barley, oats, wheat and rye from several points in the interior as far north aa Eagle. These grains were grown and matured there this year. With one exception they were volunteer products from seed accidentally scattered and grown wild. If grains will grow and mature without culture, it stands to reason that they will grow and improve with culture. "I also grew flax at Sitka the first year. It. attained the height of more than three feet, matured seed and pro duced a fibre of excellent quality. There is no doubt that flax can be made a suc cessful crop in the coast region of Alas ka, My instructions the first year were to examine the coast region and reserve lands for experimental stations at suit able places. With this end in view we started a station at Kenai, on the Kenai peninsula, in Cook inlet. We made a reservation of 320 acres there, some of which has since been cleared and has matured grain successfully." M'KINLEY DINES OUT. He Meets Ex-President Harri son at Justice Harlan's. Washington, Dec. 11. President Mc Kinley and ex-President Harrison met last night at a dinner given by Justice Harlan of the supreme court. It was the first dinner that the president had taken in Washington outside the White House for some time past. The fact of his accepting an invitation where he would meet ex-President Harrison is taken to effecti'ely dispose of the re ports in circulation that the relations between the two had been strained of late. A JEALOUS WOMAN Charged That George Harmon Was Killed by Mrs. Maggie Gulp. Buffalo, N. T., Dec. 11.

The woman left the building through a rear door and the detective force of this city has been un able to find her. The police were at first inclined to believe that Harmon had committed suicide, but after an in vestigation state that they believe that in a passion of jealous rage, the wo man poured the acid in the mouth and over the face of Harmon, whom they assume was sleeping upon a bed in her room. It is stated that Mrs. Culp had made threats to kill Harmon who she knew was contemplating marriage to another woman. CHINESE RAILWAY. Line Between Pekin and Tien Tsin Is Again Open. Pekin, Dec. 11.

Doubt as to British Action on Hay Pauncefote Treaty. New Tork, Dec. 11. A special to the Herald from Washington, says: It is reported that Arthur J. Balfour, government leader in the house of com mons, gave a pledge to a United States senator last summer that Great Britain would accept the Hay-Pauncefote treaty with the Da' is amendment and it has been a powerful aid to those who ad vocate amending the treaty. The report Is in direct contradiction of Information given out at the England foreign of fice. Friends of the treaty who want it rat ified in its original form state popitive ly that they know Great Britain will very likely return the treaty to the Uni ted States unaccepted if it Is amended. Secretary Hay's earnestness in press ing for the ratification in its original form is regarded as evidence that he dots not think Great Britain will accept the amended treaty.

Out For a Gaj Time lie Meets His Two Daughters. Omaha, Neb., Bee 1L The police have Dr. J. J. Soloman, a well-known Omaha physician on the rack trying to force him to tell what he knows of a ensational tragedy that occurred in this city. The affair is the result of the visit of a gay Council Bluffs man to Omaha, at the in vitation of an acquaintance, to meet so called society girls for a good time. The man came and was met by h!s friends. Together they entered a house at Sixteenth and Harney streets, and Im mediately a shot was heard and the Omaha man staggered out with a bullet in his breast. The Council Bluffs man had met with a surprise. The two Omaha girls he was to meet proved to be his own (laughters, each party being ignorant of the other's identity until the dramatic climax. Then the father, enraged beyond the power of control, drew a pistol and at tempted to kill the man who had been flirting with his daughters, and had in vited the father to meet them for a ca rousal. The wounded man rushed to a carriajra and was driven to the residence of lr. Soloman. This much the physician admits. He also teils the story of the dramatic occurrence leading up to the shooting, but refuses to furnish the police with the name of the injured man fir the name of the man who did the shooting. The doc tor's house was searched, but the victim was not found. The physician says the man is badlv hurt, the bullet having entered Just above the heart, but says he has been taken from the city by friends.

The Populist organ, the Independent, makes a direct rhar-;i that J.1;..0i'0 has been offered to in.lui v! Governor Poynter to grant a pardon to ex-State Treasurer Joseph S. Hartley, now serving 20 years In the mate pris m for the embezzlement of $:.00.00t fn.m th! state. This charge is coupled with the following comment: "Those who have been opposed to Cr. Poynter have been In the habit of bring ing the accusation that he was 'a weak man.' Soma distinguished gentlemen met with a surprise lately when they thought to bank on his reported weak ness. A very large sum of money was raised to secure Bartley's pardon. It wai large enough to get an agreement for silence from three dailies of the state, besides $35,000 to be paid In cash down. There were a lot more who have pre tended to be Populists or Democrats (for revenue only) whose influence was ob tained." This disclosure has caused ome com motion in political circles, an the dpfcl contemplating a pardon for Hartley i known to be only a preliminary step hy aeents of the surety signers on Bnrtley'n official bond not only to get Hartley It erated and out of the state, but quietly to "roll" through the legislature a bill for the relief of the signers ot the Bart ley bond.
