Cambridge. Mass., Jan. 222. President
Eliot of Harvard, .pictures a mighty
American republic a hundred years
hence in an address yesterday before
the Prospect Union on 'Reverence Con
sistent With Genuine Democracy." He
spoke in part as follows:
The great movement of the world
today is toward democracy. The great
keynote of the present century, the cen
tury that we are just entering upon,
will be democracy in all things. One
hundred years from now the population
of cur countiy. which is now for the
most part wilderness, will be beyond
any present conception, and this great
nation will be the most democratic that
thp world has ever known.
"The progress of democracy will
the ereat feature of, the advance
be
of
civilization in the present
century. If
this is to be sound
the character of our
neorilc must be as sound as their pro
ficiency in the arts, in commerce, m
government.
"Though critics of democracy say that
democracy has destroyed some of their
fircr characteristics of the older coun
tries, such as reverence of children tow
ard 'parents, pupils toward teachers,
the people toward their rulers, there is
all relations a more genuine relation
than formerly. No nation in the world
has such reverence for women as have
the men of the great republic. Our
reverence for symbols has diminished,
but not for the "ideals w hich these ma
terial signs of religion and love or
country stand for."

young girl contralto, Lois Feurt, for
whom she predicts great things. The
girl, who is but 17 years of age, was

exquisite charm that the great prima
donna, with tears in her eyes, clasped
the girl to her breast, saying: "You
have the voice, you have the tempera
ment, you have the physique, you will
be great." .
The other members of Mme. Calve s
companv were also amazed at the girl's
marvelous voice, and predict a future
for her. After singing Gounod's "Oh,
That We Two Were Maying." Mme.
Calve told Miss Feurt that she would
formally adopt and give her a thorough
training in Paris.

commission now sittins at Alcoelras for the
more Americans who visit Europe than
Chicago, Jan. 22.- There will be no
championship in the future among
football teams of the middle west, according-
to Dean Albion W. Small, who
represented the University of Chicago
in the recent football conference, if
the suggestions made at that confer
ence are adopted.
"It was agreed." said Dean Small,
"by the representatives of all the col
leges that the football "schedules
should be so arranged that there will
be. no way of deciding the champion
ship. The schedules will be made out
by athletic authorities who are to un
derstand distinctly that no one team
shall have a chance to claim the eham-
pionsmp."
This provision as well as the others
met with approval among members of
the faculty of the Universitv of Chi
cago, and there seems to be little doubt
that they will be adopted bv that in
stitution. The faculty of Northwest
ern university are also said to approve
of the changes recommended by the
conference.
JOINT CONFERENCE.
Carpenters and Woodworkers Will Try
to Smooth Out Wrinkles.
Indianapolis. Ind., Jan. 22. In the
hope of framing a trade agreement
which will put an end to the friction
and controversy which for four years
has existed between the Brotherhood of
Carpenters and Joiners of America and
the Amalgamated Woodworks' Interna
tional union, the executive boards of the
two organizations will hold a joint con
ference in Indianapolis Thursday of this
week at which President Gompers of the
American Federation of Labor will be
present to lend his aid should it be
needed.
The long standing dispute of the two
rival organizations has found its way
frequently into the American Federa
tion of Labor conventions, and at the
Pittsburg meeting last November dele
gates from the two organizations pre
sented resolutions which were adopted
and which led to the coming meeting.
The dispute centers about men who
work in mills and factories, each organ
ization claiming jurisdiction.

Reports received today at the gen

Santa Fe railway are to the effect that
a severe blizzard of snow and wind
is raging along the lines of the road in
Illinois and Eastern Missouri. The
extent of its depredations is not known
as all of the raiiroad wires and the
other Western Union lines' in the lo
cality are down. Traffic has not been
seriously interfered with as yet, but
if the storm continues and prevents
the restringing of the wires a block
ade of the railway lines is inevitable.

offered an opportunity for one of his

future, there be a Filipino delegate in

SKETCH OF THE LIFE
And a True Story of How the Vegetable Compound
Had Its Birth and How the "Panic of '73" Caused
it to be Offered for Public Sale in Druz Stores.
This remarkable woman, whose
maiden name was Estes, was born in
Lynn, Mass., February 9th, 1819, coming-
from a g-ood old Quaker family.
For some years she taught school, and
became known as a woman of an alert
and investig'ating' mind, an earnest
seeker after knowledg-e, and above
all, possessed of a wonderfully sympa
thetic nature.
In 1843 she married Isaac Pinkham,
a builder and real estate operator, and
their early married life was marked by
prosperity and happiness. They had
four children, three sons and a
daug-hter.
In those good old fashioned days it
was common for mothers to make
their own home medicines from roots
and herbs, nature's own remedies
calling- in a physician only in specially
argent cases. - By tradition and ex
perience many of them gained a won
derful knowledge of the curative prop
erties of the various roots and herbs.
Mrs. Pinkham took a great interest
in the study of roots and herbs, their
characteristics and power over disease.
She maintained that just as nature so
bountifully provides in the harvest
fields and orchards vegetable foods of
all kinds; so, if we but take the paijis
to find them, in the roots and herbs
of the field there are remedies ex
pressly designed to cure the various
ills and weaknesses of the body, and
it was her pleasure to search these out,
and prepare simple and effective medi
cines for her own family and friends.
Chief of these was a rare combina
tion of the choicest medicinal roots
and herbs found best adapted for the
cure of the ills and weaknesses pecu
liar to the female sex, and TjvdiaE.Pink
ham's friends and neighbors learned
that her compound relieved and cured
and it became quite popular among
them.
All this so far was done freely, with
out money and without price, as a
labor of love.
But in 1873 the financial crisis struck
Lynn. Its length and severity were too
much for the large real estate interests
of the Pinkham family, as this class
of business -suffered most from
fearful depression, so when the Centen
nial year dawned it found their prop
erty swept away. Some other source
of income had to be found.1
At this point Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound was made known
to the world.
The three sons and the daughter,
with their mother, combined forces to

restore the family fortune. They
argued that the medicine which was
so good for their woman friends and
neighbors was equally good for tb.9
women of the whole world.
The Pinkhams had no money, and
little credit. Their first laboratory
was the kitchen, where roots and
herbs were steeped on the stove,
gradually filling a gross of bottles.
Ihen came the question of selling
it, for always before they had given
it awray freely. They hired a job
printer to run off some pamphlets
setting forth the merits of the medi
cine, now ca'.led Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, and these -.vera
distributed bv the Finkham sons ia
Boston, New York, and Brooklyn.
The wonderful curative properties of
the medicine were, to a great extent,
self-advertising, for whoever used ii
recommended it to others, and the de
mand gradually increased.
In 1877, by combined efforts the fatai
ily had saved enough money to com
mence newspaper advertising and from
that time the growth and success ot
the enterprise were assured, until to
day Lydia E. Pinkham and her Vege
table Compound have become house,
hold words everywhere, and many
tons of roots and herbs are used annu
ally in its manufacture.
Lydia E. Pinkham herself did not
live to see the great success of this
work. She passed to her reward years
ago, but not till she had provided.
means for continuing her work as
effectively as she could have done is
herself.
During her long and eventful expe
rience she was ever methodical in hep
work and she was always careful to pre
serve a record of every case that came to
her attention. The case of every sick
woman who applied to her for advice
and there were ' thousands received
careful study, and the details, includ
ing symptoms, treatment and results
were recorded for future reference, and
to-day these records, together with
hundreds of thousands made since, are
available to sick women the world
over, and represent a vast collabora
tion of information regarding the
treatment of woman's ills, which for
authenticity and accuracy can hardly
be equaled in any library in the
world.
With Lydia E. Pinkham worked her
daughter-in-law," the present Mrs.
i'ink h am. & h e was care f u 1 y i n str u cte d
in all her hard-won knowledge, and
for years she assisted her in ber vast
correspondence.
To her bands naturally fell the
direction of the work when its origina
tor passed away. For nearly twenty
five years she has continued it, and
nothing in the work shows when the
first Lydia E. Pinkham dropped her
pen, and the present Mrs. Pinkhaci,
now the mother of a large family, took
it up. With women assistants, some as
capable as herself, the present Mrs.
Pinkham continues this great work. and
probably from the office of no other
person have so many women been ad
vised how to regain health. Sick wo
men, this advice is "Yours for Health"
freely given if you only write to ask
for it.
Such is the history of Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound : made
from -simple roots and herbs; the one
great medicine for women's ailments,
and the fitting monument to the nobl
woman whose name it bears.
