Twenty Ruthenlan peasants belong ing to Ispns, In Qallcia, have been sen tenced to various terms of Imprison ment, from a week to a month, for kissing each other In church. A feud has arisen between two par ties In the town, and the priest preached a sermon in which he urged tho peasants to make friends before they camo to church again. They took him at his word, and on the fol lowing Sunday the two hostile parties marched up the church side by Bide, and kissed the altar. Then they sol emnly shook hands and kissed one an other on both cheeks In the Polish fashion to seal the reconciliation. . The kissing scene excited loud laughter among the members of the congregation, and the priest proBecut ed the peasants for unseemly conduct In church. The court held that a church is no place for kissing and found the peasants guilty. Laundry work at home would be much more satisfactory if the right Starch were used. In order to get the desired stiffness, It is usually neces sary to use so much starch that the beauty and fineness of the fabric Is hidden behind a paste of varying thickness, which not only destroys tho appearance, but also affects the wear ing quality of the goods. This trou ble can he entirely overcome by using Defiance Starch, as It can be applied much more thinly because of its great er strength than other makes. "Gumming" Season Over.

Tailor and Cutter. FIT THE GROCER Wife Made the Suggestion. A grocer has excellent opportunity to know the effects of special foods on bis customers. A Cleveland grocer has a long list of customers that have been helped in health by leaving off coffee and using Postum Food Coffee. He says, regarding hi3 own expe rience: "Two jears ago I had been drinking coffee and must say that I was almost wrecked In my nerves. "Partlculirly in tho morning I was so irritable and upset that I could hardly wilt until tho coffee was served, an t then I had no appetite for brenkfast nnd did not feel like attend ing to my store duties. "One day my wife suggested that Inasmuch as 1 was selling so much Postum there must be some merit In It and suggested that we try It. I took home a package and sho prepared It according to directions. The result was a very happy one. My nervous ness gradually disappeared and to-day I am nil right.

He Was Thicker Skimmed. Walter Howard, the London drama tist, was leaving the stage door of a theater one evening when an anemic looking youth stepped up and said: "Are you Mr. Howard?" The author replied In tho affirmative, whereupon the young fellow Bald he wanted to go on the stage. Noticing his evident unfitness for such a life, Howard ad vised him to stick tp bla present oc cupation, whatever it was. "I am as sistant pawnbroker across the way," said the ambitious young man.

NELLIE MA K HAM A nervous irritable woman, often on the verpe of hysterics, is a source of misery to everyone who comes under her influence, and unhappy and mis erable herself. Such women not only drive hus bands from home but are wholly unlit to ffovern children. The ills of women act like a fire brand upon the nerves, consequently si'ven-teuths of tho nervous prostra tion, nervous despondency, the "blues", sleeplessness, and nervous Irritability of women arise from some organic derangement. Do you experience fits of depression with restlessness alternating- with ex tremo irritability ? Do you suffer from pains in tho abdominal region, backache, bearlnR-down piiins,nervous dyspepsia, sleeplessness, and almost continually cross and snappy? If so, your nerves are in a shattered con dition nnd you are threatened with nervous prostration. Proof is monumental that nothing1 in the world is better for nervous troubles of women than Lydia K. l'inkham's Vegetable Compound, made from native roots anil herbs. Thousands nnd thousands of women can testify to this fuct. Mrs. Nellie Makham, of 151 Morgan St., Duffalo. N. Y., writes: Denr Mrs. Fiiiklmm: "I was a wre'k from nervous prostration MRS.GEO. A.JAME5 I suffered so I did not care what became of me, and my family despaired of my re covery. I'bvsii-iuns failed to hi-ln me. I was urged to try Lydia E. l'inkham's, Vegetable Compound and I want to tell you tbiit it has entirely cured me. I think it is the finest medicine on earth and I ana recommending it to ail my friends, aud, acquaintances. Mrs. Geo. A. James, a life lonj resident of Fredonia, N. Y writes: Door Mrs. rinkham: "I waa in a terribly run down condition, and had nervous prostration cauwd bjr female trouble, in fact I hod not been weU since mv children were born. Thin con dition worked on my nerves and I waa ir ritable and miserable. I had tried many reniwiies without getting much help but Lvdia E. Finkbnm's Vcgctahlo Compound brought me tmck to health and strength. It has also carried mo safely through the Chnnge of Life. 1 cannot too strongly recomincud your medicino." Mrs. Pinkham's Invitation to Women; Women suffering from any form of female weakness aro invited to communicate promptly with Mrs. l'inkham, at Lynn, Moss. From the symptoms (riven, the trouble may be located and the quickest and surest way of recovery advised. Out of her vast volume of experience in treating female ills Mrs. Pinkham probably has the very knowledge that will help rour case. Her advice ia free and always helpful. Lvdia E. rinkham s Vegetable Compound, maae irora nauve roots un herbs" contains no narcotics or harmful drugs and today holds the record for the largest number of actunl cures of female diseu.ics of any medicine the world has ever known, and thousands of voluntary testimonials arc on file in the laboratory at Lynn, Mass., which testify to its wonderful value.
