Jude Jones cald In jiart "Ftllow-countrjTren and, raa I not say. Comrade'' of tho U S Grant Pof Tour rraclous kindness has touclied me deeply t Is not for me. but for the people from al I come ThN hour is one of indescrib able moral grandeur W hen but a beard'f - youth I drank the cup of defeat' at Appo mattox and t.iw one of those allowed to return to his home, not to be disturbed bj tho United Stalls authorities so long as they observed their paro e j.nd the laws m force where they resided. I'ron. that da-, to this there has rever been an hour v hen I jvould willingly emit any opportunity to do honor to the mentor of thu immortal -who forbore to add to the burden of our por townthen. "The man who died at Mount McGregor .was neer enilous of the glorj of the caji talh who won battles for him, and sub talned them lojall In the fie'd. There is one phase of his life upon which I tentae to enlarge because it uppals cnen more strongly to the men who -tackea arms at Appomattox than to thot who followed to vlctorj there, and future generations iwlll dwell upon It with ccr Increasing ad miration. "His soul broadened with the Intensity of that awful conflict, and in its closing daB lie regarded hl9 former fnea Tint nc n- piles to be destroyed, but as countrjmen to e reconciled. When he saw the inevitable end approaching no thought came to him of unconditional burrendtr then. He did not desire It. "The proud army of Nortb'ern Virginia load no thought or resolt e then but of now to die -slth honor Ho felt the bitterness i the hour for the great commander w hose ibearlnjr amid the wreck of fortune ascend ed to the dignity of the gods, and deter mined to spore him eon the pain of the Initiative In the approaching capitulation .0 useless ceremonial of surrender mocked His countrymen there and all his acts dis played the 'delicacy of a great soul.' "From the hour he turned from Appomat tox to the last day at Mount McGregor, the desire uppermoet In the thoughts of the victorious soldier was to soothe and better the condition of his defeated countrymen. Xt the iery moment of his victor he paid "The Confederates are now our prisoners and we do not want to emit oer their downfall. He realized more than any man that his victory would be tried in the cruci Zile of after years, and tested by tho rela tions between the victor and lanqulshed and their children In coming time. JHe lost no opportunity to speak in terms of ad miration of the Condeferato soldier 'who-3 manhood drew forth such herculean deeds of valor" and with whom lie 'hoped for ner petual peace and harmonj.'

Pivkhxm": I can thank you for perfect health today, and gladly do I acknowledge it. Life looked so dark to me a year or two aero. I had constant pain-,, my limbs"s welled. I had dizzy spells, and uever knw one day how I would" feel the next. I was nervous and had no appetite, neither could I sleep soundly nights. Eight bottles of Lydia E. Pinkliarri's Vegetable Compound, used in conjunction with your Sanative Wash, did more for me than all the medicines and tha skill of the doctor. For eight months I have enjoyed perfect health. I verily believe that most of the doctors are guessing and experimenting when they try to cure a woman with an assortment of complications, such a- lriine ; but you did not jrness when you mixed your Compound : you evidently know what you are giving-surferin-: women and are sure of what it will do. How I wish allsutfering women could pnly know of your remedy: there would be less suffering and many thousands more happy and healthy women in America."' Laura, Howard, 113 Xewberry Ave, Cnicago, I1L O, mv sisters, I do pray you to profit by 3Iiss Howard's experi ences; ju-t as surely as she was cured of the troubles enumerated in her letter, just so surely will Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound cure every woman in the land who suffers from womb troubles, inflammation of the ox aries. kidney troubles, nervous excitability, and ncnous pro-tration: remember that it is Lydia E.
