'A prominent Southern lady,1
Mrs. Blanchard, of Nashville,
Tenn., tells how she was cured
of backache, dizziness, painful
and irregular periods by the use
of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
"Deae Mrs. Piskham: Gratitude
compels me to acknowledge the great
merit of your Vegetable Compound. I
have suffered for four years with ir
regular and painful menstruation, also
dizziness, pains in the back and lower
limbs, and fitful sleep. I dreaded the
time to come which would only mean
suffering to me.
" Better health is all I wanted, and
cure if possible. Iiydia E. Pink
liam's Vegetable Compound
brought me health and happiness in
a few short months. I feel like another
person now. 3Iy aches and pains have
left me. Life seems new and sweet to
me, and everything seems pleasant
" SixottIes brought me health, and
was worth more than months under
the doctor's care, which really did not
benefit mo at all. I am satisfied there
is no medicine so good for sick women
as your Vegetable Compound, and I
advocate it to my lady friends in need
of medical help." Mes. R. A. Blax

Because his companion Insisted on tak

which Long may not recover.
Both men had been drinking at Long'''

h was going home, and Long insisted on
accompanying him. On Williams's door
step an altercation took place. Long
walked to his home after being stabbed
and collapsed from the loss of blood.

Goirrnor Yntea Tells Ills Henchmen
to "Ret Ilnsy."
Springfield. 111., Feb. S. Governor
Yates's pay-roll brigade met him in con
ference this afternoon. Among them were
A. llandby Jones of Hobinson, Pure-Food
Commissioner; Judge Joseph I. lies-sick
of Hast St. Louis, Trusteo of the Soldiers'
and Sailors' Home; Doctor W. E. Songer,
Superintendent of the Asylum for the
Criminal Insane: Henry Beckeineyer of
mmoii County: Walter Warder and Wal
ler Woods of Cairo.
It ii understood that the Governor, In
Jim ale Interviews with his chief lieuten
ants, impressed them with the necessty
of "getting busy" at once.
Information from Will County Is to the
effect that the Congressman Snapp fac
tion, which 's in control of the organisa
tion, will run the primaries and County
Convention next Saturday. Superintendent
1-eon McDonald of the Illinois and Michi
gan Canal is authority for the statement
that lns'ruitions will be given for nobody
by the County Convention. This Is some
what surprising, for the Will County ma
chine Is a section of the Governor's organ
ization in the State.
Mr. McDonald declares there Is no oppo
sition to the machine In Will, but declines
to discuss the rea--ons for a probable
failure to Instruct for Governor Yatea. It
Is believed this is merely a diplomatic
move on tho part of Mr. Snapp. who does
not care to antagonize the friends of
Lowdcn and Dcneen in othr counties In
the district, and thus Injure his own
chances for renomlnation.
The Twenty-fourth congressional Dis
trict Republican Committee meets at
Carmi to-morrow- to fix the place and
time for the Congressional Convention.
Secretary of State Kose, who lives In that
district, will attend, and will notify the
leaders In each county that he expects
instructed delegations in his favor for
Oovernor. Tills will cut a wide stretch in
Governor Yates's pasture. There Is no
doubt but Mr. Itoe will get practically
every county In the district Clay, Hardin
and Wane may possibly be excepted.
Colonel Randolph Smith of Clay Is in tho
lead for the nomination for Congress.

went to the corner grocery at noon yester
day. Soon afterwards. Florence, the o-year-old
daughter of Mrs. Joseph Ethrldge of
No. 32 North Twenty-flrst street, came
In, dressed in boy's trousers, to show
"grandfather" how she "looked."
"Grandfather" looked and went on
whetting the eraser. The child remained
with Delaney half an hour, and then he
told her, "Ycu'd better run home, honey.
When Mrs. Delaney returned soon after
1 o'clock she found her husband lying on
the flour in a pool of blood.
He had put a keen edge on the eraser,
and when left alone he stabbed himself
three times in the left breast near tho
heart, cut two long gashes in his throat
and opened the artery in his left arm m
two places. It was the fourth time he had
tried to commit suicide.
Delaney was removed to the City Hos

wounds. Because of his age (he Is Tl
years old), and the great loss of blood, the
physicians say he cannot live. Despon

Mrs. Ethridge told him that she did not
have a pistol. Last Wednesday Mrs; Eth
ridge's 10-year-old son found Delaney
kneeling in the woodshed, feeling at his

ture on Korea. The much-perturbed Is

then by Mr. Depue give an excellent Idea

and their mode of living.
