TUESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER I, IHOT.
Mrs. L. A. Harris, a Prominent Member of a Chicago Woman's Political Club, tells how Ovarian Troubles may be Cured with out a Surgical Operation. She says: " Doctors have a perfect craze for operations. The minute there is any trouble, nothing but an operation will do them; one hundred dollars and costs, and included in the costs are pain, and agony, and often death. , " I suffered for eight years with ovarian troubles ; spent hundreds of dollars for relief, until two doctors agreed that an operation was my only chance of life. My sister had been using Lydia E. Pink liam's Vegetable Compound for her troubles, and been cured, and she strongly urged me to let the doctors go and try the Com pound. I did so as a last resort; used it faithfully with the Sana tive Wash for five months, and was rejoiced to find that my troubles were over and my health restored. It women would only try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound first, fewer surgical operations would occur."—Mrs. L. A. Harris, 278 East olst St., Chicago, 111. $5000 FORFEIT IF THE ABOVE LETTER IS NOT GENUINE. "When women are troubled with irregular, suppressed or painful menstruation, weakness, leucorrhivit, (lisphufMiHMiL or uleeration of the womb, that bearing-down feeling', inflammation of the ovaries, back ache, bloating (or flatulence), general debility, indigestion, and nervous prostration, or are beset with such symptoms as dizziness, faintness, lassitude, excitability, irritability, nervousness, sleeplessness, melancholy, " all-gone " and " waht-to-be-left-alone " feelings, blues, and hopelessness, they should remember there is one tried and true remedy. JLydia E. Piakliani's Vegetable Compound at once removes such troubles. For four years I had been troubled with constipation which brought on piles. I was induced to try Ripans Tabules. The results were better than I expected. As a regulator of the bowels I believe Ripans are with out an equal, and I am never with out them now. At Druggists.

EDMUND ROSTAND'S BELIEF IN LUCK Paris Sept. 20.—1 must believe in luck, To say this seems to boast that I am specially favored by fortune; yet to deny it would be to attribute too much to my powers; and I must recognize that my personal merit is not great. At certain stages of my life, good things were placed before me, like fruits that I had only _to pluck. Apart from the monstrous misfortunes that are the curse of every life, each average man has in his exist tenca an hour of luck when fruits come to his hand for him to gather. This hour tan even return several times. But for i\w luck to be real and profitable, the man must be able to seize, as well as to see it. If in blindness he lets it pass, he can never retreive himself. Or if, too ambitious, he attempts to extract from his luck more than it can offer, it passes. Luck must be smiled upon, and taken as it is. Fundamentally, I think that luck con sists in having no faith in theories. t"hose who reason out projects, who argue with destiny, are treated with comparative in difference. At no period in my career do I find a definite plan to have attained any end. I have lived according to my taste and my inspiration. Success Is dear to every one; 1 wish to see my efforts re warded. I am exhilarated by the struggle, I rejoice in victory; and I suppose it is the optimism following upon triumphs that has led me into the agreeable super stition of a lucky star. V I inosph,- r<- of the Theater. My career bus forced this conclusion upon me. At Ju I had in I'aris no artis tic or literary friends. I lived an ordi nary, every-day life. As a diversion I sometimes wrote verses, without the slightest notion of ever becoming a poet. Soim-times I took part in amateur theat rioala with her who was to become my wife; and as one day, we wanted a play and could not find a suitable one, it oc curred to me to write a dialogue. My wife, who was then studying elocution with Monsieur de Feraudy, of the Com edie Francaise, took the dialogue to her master, who was delighted with it, and who. in turn, showed it to Jules Clareiif. To my surprise, Claretie asked me to call, and he said to me: "The play is altogether charming. The Comedie Fran caise shall play it. Only, for the formal ity, you must read It to the committee, one can'faticy my deligbl at the,idea of being played in the house of Moliere. I scii'l to my wife, "When we are old. it will be delighttul to tell our children that we had an act at the Comedie Francaise." On the clay appointed for appearing be fore the committee, I had arranged with Feraudy for him to do the reading. The title. "Los Deux Pierrots," was coldly received, and the play was rejected al ir.o.-t unanimously. Claretie was dis-! tressed beyond measure, for he had j counted upon acceptance as a certainty. He insisted upon the merit of the piece, and said that I must bring something else. Then 1 had what I call an Inspira tion, which has, I think, taken the place of luck in my life. It was the sudden realization, the inner conviction that op portunity was passing and that a move ment could sron it. Until that moment, no thought had entered my brain, beyom writing a little act. possibly followed by other little acts. But at that instant, I cannot say why, yielding to an Irresist ible impulse, I said to Claretie, with a cool self-confidence which terrified me the moment I had spoken, "I shall not bring you one act, but three." "Good," replied the administrator of the Comedie Franca ise; "I promise you that they shall i be read." And a month later I brought him "Les Romanesques." He kept his word: and I read It to the committee. How a I'lny Was Shortened. The reading lasted an hour and a quar ter and my success was dubious. How- THREE SIMPLE QUESTIONS And the Librarian Could Not Amwer a Sintilc One of Them. Savings Journal. A One day two well-dressed young women i J approached the desk in the reading-room 11 of a big library. One of them took a | i memorandum from her pocketbook. i i "Can you tell me how many yards—oh, i; that's the wrong list," she said, hastily, 1 bringing forth another slip of paper. J "Here it is. Will you please tell me who ' ' is Rudyard Kipling's favorite author?" 1 j "I am unable to tell you, never having | I heard that he had one," admitted one of i the librarians. "Dear me." said the young woman, | j irritably. "It is one of the auestions for I our next club meeting. Well, which one of Thackeray's books brought him the 1 i most .income?" | "That you can probably find out by con i I suiting a book, the number of which I will ! give you," said the official. "Oh. I can't stop to look It up!" she j said, hurriedly; "I thought you could tell i me at once. . Well, there's one more thing. I Bessie Cummock, my cousin in Man- I chester, had a splendid book when I was j there last year, for anecdotes of famous : people. I can't remember the name of it, i or who wrote it. but it was about so big" i —illustrating with one finger on the desk f "—"and it has a dark green cover. Now, I • can you tell me what it is? Some day i when I have time I would like to get it i out« Of course, you must-have it in the i library?" i,' ;;..'>' :U r:.~ v For the third time the official was I obliged to confess his inability to give her direct Information. She looked at him with a piercing gaze and turned away, saying audibly to her companion: "There, that just shows what all this talk about their being examined for po sitions in libraries amounts to! Three perfectly,simple questions, all on literary subjects, and he couldn't answer one of them." NOT CONTAGIOUS. Answers. She —Do you believe In the theory about spreading disease by kissing?

A Superst!tion Regard ing Fate Illustrated in a Brilliant Career. ever, I was received conditionally. I would not accept this ambiguous solu tion. I demanded a clear yee or no. Claretie consulted with the committee and returned to tell me that the reply was Yes, provided I could reduce the piece to one- hour's duration. Returning home, I put my watch before me on my desk, and practiced reading a little more rapidly, omitting the directions for by play. I placed a blue pencil mark op posite certain passages which I might omit if pressed for time. But I changed nothing. The second reading was simply a calculation of time. Mounet Sully, particularly, kept his eyes glued on his watch. I finished in one hour precisely, and "Les Romanesques" was accepted. During the rehearsals I not only re placed all the insignificant cuts he had made, but added, much that had not been in the original. Then began my real schooling in pa tience. For two years I had no news of my piece. At twenty-three I was ardent to see my play on the stage. Yet not once did I return to the Comedie Fran ca ise. Filially, I was summoned by Claretie to read it to the actors. And then, a new play by De Curel having been submitted to the committee, "Les Ronaanestiues" was shelved in order that "L'Amour Brode" might be staged. A l)i-n inn c i»('» Initial Succeas. Meanwhile, I was besieged with coun sels to withdraw my manuscript, and to bring something else. Claretie, sup ported me, and thus the Interval was tiilel over, and the rehearsals began. Ah they advanced, a strange phenomenon was observable. The enthusiasm of the actors, 6troug at first, calmed down amazingly each successive day. Made moiselle Reiebenberg alone remained confident of success, which her womanly Instinct predicted. The general expecta tion of a failure told upon me, and The night of the premiere I was prepared for the worst. However, scarcely fifteen lines had been spoken when applause broke out, It is hard to cay why, over some .sentence such as there were many others in the play. This was the first time that 1 knew myself to be a drama tist. That was my first success. Afterwards, Sarah. Bernhardt played La Princesee Lointal^e. This was great luck: but newspaper critic? combined to condemn it, and it was only a partial success. Then I produced '"La Samarl taine." which was interrupted by Bern hardt's departure for Brussels. But "La Samaritaine" had been played eight times, and had made money. Then I felt that I had power to attract curiosity. My great star arose with "Cyrano" and '"L'Aiglon." A Man of Moods. My misfortune comes to me from anx iety. I am suspicious of fate in things and people, and my pleasures are dulled. Then I yearn for that which I have not. I should like to seize an infinitude of things w rhich have passed through my brain and which I have admired. I envy vigorous and productive natures; I envy the power of enormous work, which ] would enable me to give life to all the ] characters that tempt me, and many of which must remain passively within me, J since I lack the physical strength which permits great and intoxicating excesses of life and of work. Yet no one is happy; so I must not complain. A* In my youth, not dreaming of liter erary fame, I walked ahead on impulse, so I now follow that same impulse, which I know to be inspiration. And that is why I am unaffected by criticism. When I am reproached for this or that defect of nature or talent, I say to myself, "That may be true; it must be true." But how can I prevent it? What must an apple tree think when the gardeners criticise its apples? I have nothing else to give. FULL OF FILTH. The Removal Necessary—So Ordered by tin- State Board of Health. What would you think if you should, i one of these fine days, receive a letter j from the executive department of the ', state board of health saying: '"You are a nuisance, both to your neighbor and to I yourself, and if you do not take warn ing we will be compelled to resort to law! in forcing the claim that we have against I you."

These diseases, ' namely, liver, kidney, stomach and bow- I els, filthy in the effects of a constitutional, disorder. They are curable quite readily ! with Oascarine, a treatment that flushes ! the system, drives the impurities out of the body and makes one's condition that; of purity and good health. Cascarine i really works wonders. It cures after all; others have failed and it cures without any inconvenience to one's habits or usual j every-day work. Take it and keep good j health. This treatment was originally j prepared by the physicians of the South- I crn Medical and Surgical Institute off Ixniisville, Ky. It was used in private j practice until the demand became so great that it is now being manufactured I on a large scale, and thousands of bottles are being sold. Carcarine cures bilious ness, constipation and dyspepsia and other bodily ills depending on a weak and in active condition of the digestive system. Cascarine removes foul breath and re-1 moves from the body that element which produces decomposition and fermentation of food which is called dyspepsia. Cas carine is an efficient remedy in the treat meat of Bright's disease, diabetes and all j inflamed and congested conditions of the • kidneys, bladder and other urinary organs, i Oascarine is a mild laxative tonic, of j merit.

The Minneapolis Journal's Home University League. There is a great demand for some practical means of educating the masses. Our public schools, colleges and universities are doing a great work, but nevertheless only four per cent of young people who enter the public schools ever reach the high school, and less than two per cent of those who enter the high school ever receive a college or university training. These statistics are startling bdt true. They go to show, however, the necessity of some practical means of educating the masses that will not interfere with their bread-earning ability. The Journal, instead of pub lishing lengthy editorials upon the necessity of a more ex tended system of education, proposes to deal with the matter in a more practical way. It cannot send all who desire an education to colleges, but this is what it proposes to do. It proposes to send the college to the people in the form of "The Minneapolis Journal's Home University League."
