A Desperately Serious Caaa Cured by Dr. Williams' Pink PI I la. Bronght to tha very verge of stat-vv tlou by the rejection of all nourishment, Iter vitality almost destroyed, the re- ' covery of Mrs. J. A. Wyatt, of No. 1189 Boveuth street, Dos Moines, Iowa, I seemed hotieloss. Her physicians utterly failed to reach the seat of the difficulty ftud death must have resulted if she had not pursued au iudependeut course aug gnated by he" sister's experience. Mrs. Wyatt says t " I had pain In the region of the heart, palpitation aud shortness of breath so that I coold not walk very fast. My head ached very 1-adly aud I was seized with vomiting spells whenever I took any food. A doc tor was called who pronounced the trouble gastritis, but he gave me no re lief. Theu I tried a second doctor with out benefit. Dy this time I had become very weak. I could not keep the most delicate broth on my stomach, and at the end of n month I was scarcely more than skin aud boue aud was really starv ing to death. "Theu I recalled how much benefit bit sister hnd got from Dr. Williams' Pink rills and decided to take tliem in place of the doctor's medicine. It proved a wise decision for they helped ine as nothing else hnd done. Boon I could take weak tea nnd crackers aud steadily more nourishment. In two weeks I was able to leave my bod. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills were the only thing tlmt checked the vomitliiKaud as soon as thnt was stopped my other difficulties left me. I have a vigorous appetite now and am nble to attend to all the duties of my home.

Bays Our Prairies Will Ba Filled Up In Ten Years. L. A. Stockwell of Indianapolis, a United States land man who made an extensive tour of inspection in the west, wrote the following article, un der date ot Jan. 8, for an Indiana pub lication: "States." In this letter I propose to show by extracts from my note book that thousands who have come up here from the "States" have suc ceeded far beyond their most san guine expectations. Mr. N. E. Beaumunk of Brazil, In diana, was earning $100.00 per month with a coal company. At about the age of 40 he had saved about $3,000. Four years ago he landed near Han ley, Sask. He now owns 480 acres of land. Last fall (1905) he threshed 4,700 bushels of wheat and 3,100 bush els of oats. His wheat alone brought him over it.000, which would have paid for the acres that It grew on. He is to-day worth $15,000. This Is Making Money Fast. In Feb. 1902, J. U. Smith ft Bro, were weavers in a big cotton mill in Lancashire, England. Coming here they arrived in Wapella, Sask., with only $750.00 between them. They were so "green" and inexperienced that all they could earn the first Bum mer was $6.00 per month, and the first winter they hud to work for their board. The next year, 1903, they took homesteads, and by working for neigh bors, they got a few acres broken out, upon which tho next year they raised a few hundred bushels of wheat and oats. They also bought a team and broke out about sixty acres more. In 1905 they threshed 1700 bushels of wheat from it, and 1300 bushels of oats. Their success being then as sured they borrowed some money. built a good house, barn and imple ment shed, and bought a cream sepa rator, etc. They now have a dozen cows, some full-blooded pigs and chickens, good teams and Implements to match, and are on the high road to prosperity. Here are three cases selected from my note book from among a score of others. One a mine boss, one a farmer, and one a factory operator. With each of them 1 took tea and listened to their story. "I hoped to better my condition." said one. "I thought In time 1 might make a home," said another. "1 had high expectations," said the other, and all said that "I never dreamed It possible to succeed as I have." . Like Arabian Nights. Everywhere, on the trains, at the hotels and In the family I have been told successes tbat reminded me more of the stories In the Arabian Nights than of this matter-of-fact workaday world. Yields of wheat from 35 to 53 bushels per acre, and of oats of from CO lo 100 bushels, are numerous In every locality and well authentic cated. At Moose .law, Lethbrldge, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Brandon, Hanley and many intermediate places I saw cattle and young horses fat as our grain-fed animals of the "States" that had never tasted grain, and whose cost to their owners was almost nothing. At Moosomin I saw a train load of 1,400 steers en route to England, that were shaky fat, raised as above stated. If the older genera tion of farmers in Indiana, who have spent their lives in a contest with logs and stumps as did their fathers before them, 'could see these broad prairies dotted with comfortable homes, large red barns, and straw piles innumerable, and the thriving towns with their towering elevators Jammed to the roof with "No. 1 hard, and then remember that four or five years ago these plains were tenantless but for the badger and coyote, they would marvel at the transformation Then if they followed the crowds as they emerged from the trains and hurried to the land offices, standing in line until their respective turns to be waited on came, and saw with what rapidity these lands are being taken, they would certainly catch the "disease" and want some of it too, If these lands are beautiful In mid' winter, with their long stretches of yellow stubble standing high above the snow, what must they be In sum mer time when covered with growing or ripening grains? Speaking of win ter reminds me that our Hoosler friends shrug their shoulders when tbey read in the Chicago and Minne apolis dallies of the temperature up here. For that very reason I am here this winter. The Canadian literature, with its pictures, half toncB and sta tlstlcs, gives a good Idea of her re. sources, but thirty or forty degrees below zero sounds dangerous to a Hoozier, who nearly freezes In a tern perature of five above, especially when accompanied by a wind, as it often Is, but the fact is, when it Is very cold here it is still and the air being dry the cold Is not felt as it Is In our lower latitudes, where there is more humidity In the atmosphere. I am 56 and I never saw a finer winter than the one I am spending up here. I arrived In Winnipeg Nov. 9, and have not had the bottoms of my overshoes wet slnco I entered Canada. Under a cloudless sky I have ridden In sleighs nearly a thousand miles, averaging a drive every other day. Stone, mason have not lost a week's time so fa this winter. Building of all kind goes right ahead in every city and hamlet, as though winter were never heard of.

Satisfaction with self ts not alwayi sanctifies tlon. PROSPERITY FOR ALL EXTRAORDINARY DEVELOPMENT OF NATIONAL RESOURCES. Diversification of Industries and Oc cupation Haa Brought About a Vaat Production, Which Flnda a Sura Market Because of Wlae Legislation. It will be admitted that we are blessed with an abundance of diversi fied resources such as no other coun try enjoys. But natural resources are almost if not quite valuless unless de veloped. Our ore and coal are useless lying In the ground. Untitled land Is profitless. Even rich crops are of no advantage till garnered and sold at advantageous prices. First, produc tion must be applied on the farm, In the mine and at the factory. But that In itself Is not profitable. There must be a market. There must be a con sumption 'equal to production, and good, profitable prices must be main tained year after year, season after season. A million tons of pig Iron for which there was no demand would have lit tle value. Bounteous crops unsold and left to decay would be a loss, not a gain, to the farmer. So with all our mines and our soil and our ability to produce we should remain poor un less there were consumers with suffi cient purchasing power to make pro duction profitable. Again, a large production and con sumption of a single product would not long be profitable. We need di versity in our broad land. We need transportation and distribution In or der that our people in all sections of the country and with different abilities may be constantly employed at what they can do beBt. The miner cannot build a house, the farmer cannot work at the forge or the loom, the mechanic cannot sow and reap. We have during a century or more developed all our resources. We have for the most part been a nation doing Its own work. We have by our tariff laws protected ev ery Industry, shutting out the competi tion of people who are satisfied with a low standard of living and low wages. . Little by little, year by year, we have Improved and developed our nat ural resources because of home con sumption of home products. Let us take an example. We consume over $1,000,000,000 worth of Iron and steel products, practically all of which goes to labor. Suppose we import one-half of this at one-half the present prices. That would be $250,000,000 and we would lose $500,000,000 in wages, but we would have to adapt our wages for what we did produce to the foreign scale, and those wages would not he more than half what thpy are now, or $250,000,000. So that by purchasing abroad we reduce the purchasing pow er of our iron and steel makers from $1,000,000,000 to $250,000,000. But we would have no fewer producers. Half of them would be Idle, the other half working for half what they got before. They have only $250,000,000 a year to spend Instead of $1,000,000,000. So tin farmer must Bell less or reduce his prices; the woolen nnd cotton and shoe factories must soil less or reduce their prices. Every Industry In the land is affected. It us take our manufactures as a whole. Without and duplications we are producing annually $10.0oo,0io,ooo worth of manufactures, about all of which goes to labor. Suppose we were to Import half of It. Our wages would then be only $2,500,000,000, for those engaged In the half we produced would have to work for foreign wanes if we continued to compete nt all with for eign manufactures. And so would lone $7,500,000,000 of purchasing power. The farmers would lose a home mar ket for nt least $3,000.0(10,000 of their products and what they did sell would have to be at much lower prices than now. Again, every Industry would he affected, and in a very few years mills nnd factories would close and millions of men would become Idle. It then he comes a struggle for mere exigence. Tho farmer, without n profitable mar ket for his surplus, simply lives' and buys as little as possible. We would become an Idle, impoverished people from ocean to ocean. The picture Is not overdrawn. We have hud the ac tual experience. But how different when we protect our labor and Industries and do prac TURNING BACK THE if nowohk jHMIb V m I amps and t m' Low, , V 50UP housks. Wi plW . tically all our own workl We have welcomed nearly 25,000,000 foreigners, made producers and consumers ot them, and with these added to our native-born we have built up a home market of 80,000,000 consumers, the providers for whom are all busy at wages twice and three times those paid abroad. What we cannot pro duce ourselves we buy freely from abroad and puy our bills with our sur plus products. This Is why we are prosperous. This is why we are fully employed and well paid, and this Is why we can afford to buy so much of ourselves at profitable prices. This Is why 1,000,000 people a year are eager to come to us and become free but protected Americans. It is not a mat ter of resources or natural advantages or of chance; it Is a matter of practi cal, scientific tariff legislation and application. Free Trade Pauperism. Contrasting the bitter poverty of the unemployed British workmen nnd their families with the unbounded prosperity in our own country where there Is abundant food for the hungry and a good living for every one who Is willing to work, the Republican of Bonneville, Mo., asks; "What makes the difference? There are three causes. The enormous amounts paid by the English govern ment for the support of royalty; tho suicidal land policy, which has prac tically eliminated the small bind hold ers and destroyed tho rural home, and the mistaken policy of free trade. And the last is the greatest. "Patriotic Americans should shun that party or that man who would have them change the present policy of the United States for anything In Imitation of that policy which has made England the home of paupers and three-fifths of her laboring popu lation Inmates of a pooi-house at the age of sixty years." Very much the greatest cause greater than all other causes combin ed Is the policy which began by shifting the farm workers Into the fnc torles and ends by shirting the factory workers Into the poorhouses. The Cobden Idea was to cheapen food in order to cheapen wages. How well that plan succeeded may be seen In the fact that to-day more than 25 per cent of the entire population has no wages at all and must depend on charity for food. Unconcerned. The Hartford Courant seems sur prised that the farmers of the United States should manifest no concern over the German threat of excluding American foodstuffs. The farmer has little cause for worry on that account To begin with, he has no Idea that for any considerable length of time Germany Is going to cut off her own nose to spite tho American face by shutting out a food supply which she needs and must have. German Indus irlullstg are up In arms against the threatened prohibition. They see as its result a permanent Increase In the subsistence cost of a vast army of wage earners who even now have meat on their tables not oftener than once a week and who scarcely know the taste of white bread. Moreover, they see the prospect of being shut out of a market in which they dlsposo of man i fact men amounting To about $120,0110,000 a year. The American farmer understands this situation per fectly. Ho also understands that In the 8ii.nnn.noo or Americans, each con Burning $100 a year of his products he has a better and safer market than In a country which at the best has never taken more than $2.50 per capl ta of American food products. The American farmer can afford to be tin concerned. A Huge Undertaking. Congress was three months In pass ing the Tllngley law, when the leglsla tlve wheels were greased for speed and Tom Heed, the expert pntiliiinen tarlnn, applied whip unil spur to the House. With the present divided stale of Republican opinion it would take six months to frame a law, to say nothing of the Impossibility of puss Ing ll with Cannon In the chair or o reporting It from the Ways nnd Means committee as now constituted. The preparation of a new tariff act Is a huge undertaking requiring hearings of numberless Interests, even when the administration Is favorable to the proM)sal Saginaw News. PACES OF HISTORY.

The natives on some of the Pacific Islands, being provided with neither metals nor any stone harder than the coral rocks of which the atolls they Inhabit are com posed, would seem badly off. Indeed, for material of which to make tools or weapons, were It not that their very necessity has bred on Invention no less Incenlous than curl ous nnd effective. This is the use of sharks' teeth to give a cutting edge to their wooden knives and swords The month of tho shark contains three hundred teeth, arranged In five rows, all closely lying upon each other, cx cept the outer row, and so constructed that as the tooth Is broken or lost another takes its place. Tho teeth are not only pointed nnd keen-edged. but are finely and regularlv serrated so that the cutting power Is greatly Increased. Indeed, so great a faculty have these teeth for wounding that Iho Implements nnd weapons upon which they are used have to bo han died with great care. The Klngmlll Islanders make many strange, articles of sharks' teeth. Oaring Railway Building. The work of constructing a railroad to the summit of Mount ltlano ha been begun with enthusiasm and the engineers In charge of tho undertak Ing will push tho construction with all possible speed. The lino will bo built like tho Jungrrnu line in tho Bernese Oberland, Switzerland. It will have a total length of nineteen kilometers (eleven nnd four-fifths miles) nnd will It Is hoped, be completed within five or six years. The carriages will b heated and lighted by electricity, nnd the train will bo composed of an elec trical engine and two saloon cars, made to accommodate about eighty people. A special arrangement of (be windows will permit all travelers In dlscrlinlrltitely to enjoy tho scenery Three kinds of powerful brakes, Indo- pendent of each other, will bo attach ed lo tho cars, thus rendering all ac cidents Impossible. The telephons will be established along the lino and will connect any point thereof with the head stations. Killed by Cane Thrust. A Tomboy (Indian) planter has Just been arrested for involuntary homi cide. Some time ago, when rctiiminK from a party with his fiance, ho was attacked In tho dark by n stranger. Ir self defense he made a lunge with hit walking stick, and his assailant drop peil on tho ground. Ho struggled tc bis feet again and the planter and hit fiance hurried away. Next day a man was found dead on the road ami the Inipiest showed that some Instrument had pierced his eye and entered deep ly Into the skull. Several of the vic tim's friends and acquaintances were arrested and released before tho plant er heard of the affair, when he made a full confession. Dog Came for His License. Desktnnn Quackenbush, at police headiiiarters, I'aterson, N. J., was filling out blank forms for dog licenses recently, when n coach dog walked up to him, wagging his tail ami holding In his mouth a $2 bill, tho license fee. Tho policeman took tho money and spoke to the dog. which wagged his tail more than ever. Soon after that a young man appeared, and explained that the dog was the property of J. A. Van Winkle, n feed merchant. The license was Inclosed In an envelope and placed In the dog's mouth. Tho animal then left for bis home. Sent Quarter Through Mail. Tho most peculiar piece of mall that has ever come to an Alabama post office, so far as known, reached tho New Ilecnlur postolMco to-day. It wus a silver quarter of a dollar with a small piece of paper pasled on each side. On one side was written tho address ami on the other a few words. The quarter was tied in tho center of a bundle of letters when it arrived. It had traveled many miles and was delivered safely to the one for whom It was Intended. liecatur correspondence Nashville American. Popularity of the Camera. Thirty years ago a camera was a rarity.

The story of how probably the most perfert feminine hand In Ameri ca became known (o the people la rather interesting. As tho Btory goes the possessor of tho hand was with some friends In a photographer's one day and while talking, helil up a piece of candy. The pose of tho hand with Its per fect contour and faultless shape at tracted the attention of the artist who proHised to photograph it. The re sult waa a beautiful picture kept In tha family until one day, after read lug a letter from someone Inquiring as to who wrote the I'ostum and (irape-Nuls advertisements. Mr. I'ost aald to bis wife, "Ve receive eo many Inquiries of this kind, that It Is evident some people are curious to know, suppose we let tho ndvertls Using department have that picture of your hand to print nnd name It "A Helping Hand." (Mrs. I'ost has as slstod him in preparation of some of (he most famous advertisements). There was a natural shrinking from the publicity, but with an agree ment thnt no name would accompany the picture Its use was granted. Tho case was presented In tho light of extending a welcoming hand to the friends of I'ost u in ami Crape Nuts, so tho picture appeared on tho back covers of many of thu January ami February magazines and became known to millions of people. Many artists have commented upon It as probably the most perfect hand In tho world. The advertising dept. of the Post nm Co. did not seem able to resist the temptation to enlist the curiosity of tho public, by refraining from giving the nnmo of tho owner when the pic ture appeared but stated that the name would be given later In one of the newspaper announcements, thus seeking to Induce the readers to look for and read tho forthcoming adver tisements to learn the name of the owner.
