BACKACHE The back is the mainspring of •woman's organism. It quickly calls attention to trouble by aching. It tells, with other symptoms, such as nervousness, headache, pains in the loins, weight in the lower part of the body, that a woman's feminine organism needs immediate attention. In such cases the one sure remedy which speedily removes the cause,' and restores the feminine organism to a healthy, normal condition is LYDIA E. PINKHAM'S VEGETABLE COMPOUND, Mrs. Will Young, of 6 Columbia' Aye., Rockland, Me., says: " I was troubled for a long time with dreadful backaches and a Jain in my j side, and was miserable in every way. I I doctored until I was discouraged and j thought I would never get well. I read , what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound had done for others and. decided to try it; after taking three bottles I can truly say that I never felt i so well in my life." Mrs. Augustus Lyon, of East EarL Pa., writes to Mrs. Pinkham: "I had very severe backaches, and pressing-down pains. I could not sleep, and had no appetite. Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound cured me and made me feel like a new woman." FACTS FOR SICK WOMEN. For thirty years Lydia E.

"What Is your con of love, Eleanor, from your at, of higher emotions?" you're a plague," returned the [y; "a plague sent on me for of my fathers, for I know c of my own have been bad ;o Justly bring so dire a pun as you upon me. I think that be afraid to scoff at every i in life as you do." heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth," he quoted aptly. "See here, Eleanor, I don't deserve all this. Why, girl, you're simply jumping at conclusions. Kour eyes and listen to the of the storm outside; then ;m and see the charm of this room, the old log fireplace, the rest fulness of it all and you," he said, soft ly, "who are the embodiment of Joy and beauty to me. Are you going to spoil it by a nervous outburst or i childishness?" "When I get to be 38 I believe that | I'll know just what to say and how much. Some estimable people of my acquaintance have not learned, al though 'tis said that they have passed the appointed age by half another year." j "More childishness," commented Thadfield. "You knov.'," he went on, grimly, "it appears to me that you I answer ready in reply to my so you're trying to throw me track with your foolishness, ■ternally talking of my age. n rather proud of the fact aye been able to steer clear n —they have grown aggres ite years, too—for 38 anniver saries and am half way toward an- [ other; half way, thank you, for re- j minding me, Eleanor." "Only a woman has a right to be ashamed of her age," the girl retorted, coldly. "Whenever you want to change the subject of our conversation, you be gin with my age." Thadfield put his long, well-kept hands together, palm to palm, touching finger tips, one by one, in an absent-minded way. "You make me think of a girl in my freshman year at college. She never knew any thing about physics, and every time the professor called on her she would invariably say, with slight alterations from time to time: 'Professor, before we take this up, won't you please ex plain the dynamo to me? I can't un derstand it.' He was a queer old chap, and when the bell rang at the close of that period he would be de scribing the dynamo and its uses, his question to her forgotten." "That was a case of being wise even in ignorance, wasn't it, Dick?" Laugh ter slipped out of her eyes and set tled about her lips, shaping them into a soft curve. 'You're delicious, Eleanor," cried Thadfield, warmly. "You are so fresh —ah —l mean —I mean that your ex pressions are so unusual and wholly delightful. You charm me always, that's why I'm here," he waved his left hand dramatically. Casting a furtive glance at the man where he sat meditatively gazing into the fire, Eleanor leaned back against the pillows in luxurious ease. "My conception of love, pure love, you un derstand," she began, demurely, "is— well —it is an ennobling sentiment, lifting men and women alike to a see beauty and goodness in every thing." That's very pretty," Thadfield broke in, "but you present only the theoretical side of love. You cannot intelligently discuss vital things with out knowing something about them or having experienced them. Did you ever think yourself in love, Eleanor?" he asked, abruptly. "Why, of course, Dick," she laughed. "You forget that I am 22. From the way you are talking you must have been caught in a shower of the divine ".Never mind about the shower; let's be serious for a time. You have a good brain, Eleanor, hut foolish or rather false modesty prevents you from looking at naked truths; they must be clothed for you, properly clothed, too. Now, love," he said, tinning to face her, "love between man and woman is simply instinct. I Brant you that there are various de grees of it. but the emotion underlying all others is man's primitive impulse to obey the eternal law of life." Color surged in quick waves from the girl's white throat to her brow. "I'm afraid, Dick, that you lack the finer sensibilities and disregard your knowledge of propriety," she said, Thadfield threw back his head and laughed. "You're exactly right, El eanor exactly so " he *>Telalm<»H "r 1 Thinks it Saved His Life. . Lester M. Nelson of Naples, Maine, says in a recent ietter: "I have used Dr. King's New Discoveey many years for coughs and colds, and I think it saved my life. I have found il a reli able remedy for throat and lung com plaints, and would no more be without a bottle than I would be without food."

I brain is sexless," cried the girl, stung into defense by his ready retort, "Til discuss it with you, first telling you thi't love with the gentle born is not merely passion and that you are bru i tally wrong." The man looked at the slender J young body of the girl sitting straight j and tense in the chair. It was not a cherished theory for which she was preparing to do battle, he reflected, but the striving to maintain an ideal, even at the expense of acknowledged facta. Hid she want to know her own attitude? Then toward whom? The self-pot question frightened him, for her seriousness meant agitation, it was possibly, true that she favored Hob Brainier; her world said so, and Bob had money. Thadfield knew that ! many women were material in their I desires, but the thought gripped at . his throat that Eleanor with her beau ! ty, her youth and her purity would many a man like Branner, sin be | sotted, because he had millions where other men she knew had thousands. ,As he sat there thinking, he became conscious that Eleanor was speaking and her voice seemed to be coming from an infinite distance. ! I "i think that it is better," she was I saying, "to gain a man's love through j j attraction of the mind rather than ! through beauty of face or form. The j one, having great resources, endures; the other, sooner subject to decay, cannot endure." j "lint you, Eleanor," Thadfield's hand j closed over one of her own and held it, "you have beauty of mind as well as | ph> Meal attraction, and so you are doubly fortunate." I The girl lifted startled eyes, which grew wide as she looked into Thad field's face. She saw yearning, infinite tenderness and mastery there. He stood up suddenly, lifting her to her feet before him. "Will you marry me, Eleanor?" he queried, searching her face with his keen eyes. "Whatever love is, I love you." A tender expression stole over her face, a look that Thadfield had never seen there but once before—one day when she had comforted a little lost child in the park. "There's Dob Branner to say good night," he said, when the telephone bell rang sharply. "Why, how did you know?" asked the girl, surprised. Thadfield loosened his hold on her hands and drew himself up to his full height. "Well," he said, folding his Washington Society Has "Glad Hand" for New Churchman. While the grave and conscientious men to whom is committed the task of securing a worthy successor to the la mented Henry Yates Satterlee are la boring to perform their task, there is quite a flutter in semi-religious social circles over the prospect of a bachelor bishop presiding over the select flock at the capital city. According to ru mor the choice has fastened on the erudite rector of Grace church in New ■ York city, Dr. Huntington, and that he has only to bow his head in assent to receive the miter and the purple vest i ments. Now, a bachelor bishop in the Episcopal or other churches where the clergy marry is exceedingly rare, and I Washington is fairly elate over even ] a remote possibility. The Protestant | bishops who have hitherto added so J much to the picturesqueness of Wash i ington society have always been se- I date men with elderly wives and good ly families. Washington boasts four resident pre j lates of episcopal dignity, two of the j Catholic faith, the delegate apostolic. ! Mgr. Falconio, and Mgr. O'Connell of I the Catholic university; the Methodist bishop of Maryland, Earl Cranston, and the Episcopal bishop of Washington, j the latter post awaiting a successor jto Bishop Satterlee. The Catholic pre lates count for little in the butterfly* world. Mgr. Falconio is a Franciscan i monk, and shuns the world and its I pomps. Mgr. O'Connell is a book- I man, and he keeps to the erudite por- I tion of the social realm. Bishop and Mrs. Cranston mingle little in gaye | ties,, and Bishop Satterlee was very i busy with other problems than dinners I and five o'clock teas. But Dr. Hunt ! ington opens an unknown vista. Though learned and famous along many lines, he goes much to the homes of his flock. Not even an ambassador in the unwed state would receive the welcome which awaits a bachelor bisho,'. As of honor, he will rank everybody except an ambassa dor anr. he will shine in a solitary or bit for 'hose who seek new luminaries. It is to be hoped that if the courtly rector of Grace church has any idea of accenting the high honors at Wash ington his digestion is in good condi tion, for a severe test awaits him. — New York Press. Adds to Rubber Supply. After the recent discovery of a new rubber plant in Cochin-China comes the discovery in Brazil of a new family group of a plant which promises to be come a valuable source of rubber, the demand for which for many purposes is constantly increasing. A report of the Royal Botanical garden and museum at Berlin mentions the results of ex periments with three new species of Manihot trees, which were discovered on a trip through the forests of the province of Bahai rubber syndicate. Two of these are considered the rub ber plants of the future for dry and little fertile regions. An Easy Way.

If I stooped or lifted anything sharp shooting pains would pass through my loins, and cause me the most intense misery. I was unable to sleep at night as then was a dull heavy aching through the small of my back that forced me to lie constantly changing my position. As the result of the loss of sleep 1 arose in the morning feeling tired and worn out and would have dull languid feelings during the day. My general health became affected,l consulted physicians, used their medicines as well as many advertised remedies, but nothing gave me relief. A friend who had been sim ilarly all'ecled and had been cured by Doan's Kidney Pills, advised me to try them and I procured a box at a drug store. They entirely cured the com plaint and I have never felt the slight est lecurrencc of the trouble since. I know that Doan's Kidney Pills act up to their representation."
