JOY OF MOTH Came to this Woman after Taking Lydia . Pinkham's Vegetable Compound to Restore Her Health lPf"I MM Ellensburg, Wash. "After I was married 1 was not well for a long time and a good deal of the time was not able to go about. Our greatest desire was to have a child in our home and cne day ray husband came back from town with a bottle of Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound and wanted me to try it. It brought relief from my trouble. I improved in health so 1 could do my housework; we now have a little one, all of which I owe to Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound." Mrs. O. S. Johnson, R. No. 3, Ellensburg, Wash. There are women everywhere who long for children in their homes yet are denied this happiness on account of some functional disorder which in most cases would readily yield to Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound Such women should not give up hope until they have given this wonderful medicine a trial, and for epecial advice write Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine Co., Lynn, Mass. The result of 40 years experience is at your service. FIND HUMOR IN AD COLUMNS Blames for Women. One of the speakers at the retail tradesmen school at the Astor house in New York predicted that men's neckties would run to glaring colors next season. Like all men, since the days of Adam, he laid the odium upon the women, so many of whom have taken the places of men clerks. These women, he says, are bound to show the young man who come to buy the pink and glaring blue "creations" and they, of course, cannot dispute the opinion that such colors are just their style, and so having bought will have to wear the gay neckties.

The Germans have a vicious iron-bound club about 30 Inches long, in size a bit smaller than the grip end, of a baseball bat. On the clubbing end there is a round iron band with inch-long spikes protruding. These spikes have sharp points. The British war museum presented our mission with a half-dozen of these evil looking weapons. They fit in well with the caves and the muddy trench bur- rowings. That's where they are used most, too. Los Angeles is producing glycerin enough for 1,220 shells daily from gar bage. ! li! II fill i hi Packers Profits Are Regulated The public should understand that the profits of the packers have been limited by the ' Food Administration since November 1, 1917. For this pur pose, the business of Swift & Company is now divided into three classes: Class 1 includes such products as beef, pork, mutton, oleomargarine and others that are essentially animal products. Profits are limited to 9 per cent "of the capital employed in these 'departments (includi g sur- ' plus and borrowed money), or not to exceed two and a half cents on .each dollar of sales. Class 2 in.'.udes the soap, glue, fertilizer, and othe.- departments more or less associal: with the meat bus'ness. Many of th z: de partments are in competition with outs.de businesses whose profits are not limited. Profits in this class are restricted to 15 per cent of the capital employed. Class 3 includes outside investments, such as those in stock yards; and the operation of packing plants in foreign, countries. Profits in this class are not limited. Total profits for all departments together in 1918 will probably be between three and four per cent on an increased volume of sales. The restrictions absolutely guar antee a reasonable relation between live stock prices and wholesale meat prices, because the packer's profit can not possibly average more than a fraction of a cent per pound of product. Since the profits on meat (Class 1) are running only about 2 cents on each dollar of sales, we have to depend on the profits from soap, glue, fertilizer (Class 2, also limited) and other depart ments, (Class 3) to obtain reasonable earnings on capital. Swift & Company is conducting its business so as to come within these limitations. Swift & Company, U. S A. mm H x rvrr mm Wig: ( C. ZJ J The following account, taken from the Red Cross Bulletin, makes plain the way In which the Red Cross of America Is helping the women and children of France: The American Red Cross has placed at the disposal of General Petain. com mander in chief of the French armies, the sum of 5,050,000 francs ($1,130, 000) for distribution among the sick and "reforme French soldiers and their needy families. It extends Its aid to the repatriated children coming In convoys from occu pied France and Belgium by way of Evian-les-Bains. Four thousand chil dren have been examined and nearly 1,000 treated at the American Red Cross hospital where also acute and contagious cases are treated. More than 16,000 have received dispensary treatment, and those In need of con valescent care or those suffering from tuberculosis are sent to the Red Cross hospital near' Lyon. The thousands of old folk, women and children without homes, who leave Evian each week for the various departments to which they are designated, find there the repre sentatives of the American Red Cross. There are more than fifty distributed in forty-four departments, who take part in the work of rehabilitation, sup plying furniture, clothing, fuel and food. In Paris, . twenty-six houses for the lodging of refugees have been turned over to the bureau. These will take care of 700 families, or 3,850 indi viduals. The Red Cross furnishes the necessary requisites and In certain cases advances money to cover the ex penses of construction. A refuge of the American Red Cross at Toul houses 466 young children and their mothers who have come out of the bombarded villages, while the means furnished by the Red Cross have made possible the opening of a maternity hospital at Chalons in which 600 ba bies have been born since the begin ning of the war. The American Red Cross gives care j and comfort to the babies of France in thirty-seven different posts, nine of which are the "postes sanitaires" es tablished in Paris where schoolchil dren whose mothers are engaged in war work may get their meals! Work is also going on In the five villages selected for intensive recon struction. The houses damaged by shell-fire and bombs have-, been ren dered habitable, barns and other farm buildings have once more been made fit for service. A subvention of 50. 000 francs ($10,000) has been set aside for the planting of 40,000 fruit trees in the orchards destroyed In the depart ments of the north. Supplies for the refugees have been made direct, through the medium of the 78 organizations and the 28 local branches. A total of 74,372 articles of clothing, 257 infant layettes and 30, 150 meters of goods have been dis tributed, as well as sewing machines, sewing materials, food and medicines. A Clothes Mandate. Owing to the .necessity for con serving materials and labor, and to keep the ever-rising cost of garments down to a minimum, fashion authori ties are not authorizing or recom mending radical changes for the au tumn. Therefore the silhouette will be straight and youthful ; colors will be restricted to the smallest possible number and for street wear will be dark and rich in tone, with much fur trimming, fringe and embroidery. - One hears that very few capes are smart unless they are touched up with a checked or plaid fabric. And capes. you know, , are as smart as jackets. and will continue to be so through the autumn. They are worn over separate skirts and cuirass blouses, or short Chinese tunics, and they have that swagger military air that comes from their careless arrangement across the shoulders. All of the new ones have some kind of waistcoat arrangement which holds them closely over the bust and waistline. Riding Togs for Youthful Wearer TM Y"4 Jkt4 1 V5 V Whatever accomplishments or sports are to be cultivated In our girls, their training for them should begin early. Riding, swimming, tennis, walking, climbing, music and languages add so much to the joy of life that every girl is entitled to a chance at some of them. While the girl Is growing up is the time for her first Instruction and for th,e really tedious practice which a knowledge of music and languages compels. 'Timidity Is easy to overcome in the young. It is especially sensible to insist on having children taught to swim and ride, and rls excel when given a chance in these sports. A glance at the habit of the smartly clad little miss shown in the picture above reveals that her habit follows closely the summer-time habits worn by her elders. The fad for puttees In place of high-top boots has extended their use to the youngsters, and wash able cloths heavy linens and Palm Beach cloth particularly make the best choice of fabrics for breeches and coats. It is only in certain details that there Is a difference between this habit and those made for grown-ups. The coat is less trim In lines than those cut for developed figures. The soft blouse with turn-over collar and bow tie provides about the only appro priate manner of dressing the neck, and the high-crowned visored cap, fit- Black Satin for Young Girls. The theory formerly held that black was only for the middle aged or old has long since been exploded, and coats of black satin or taffeta are worn by little girls as young as three years. Some of the best dress authori ties contend that black should really be worn only by the young, and that none except a young, bright face can stand the somber framing. Black wool material as either a suit, dress or coat fabric for a young girl is a poor se lection : but either black velvet or sat- ting snugly, is the happiest choice In head wear for a small girl. A habit of this kind need not fear comparison with others when the youngest horse-women ride their ponies at the horse show or county fair. There ought to be blue ribbons for all of them to reward some par ticular excellence In which each one is sure to exceed all the others. Roman Belts. Roman belts have been revived with the colored jewelry; even the old-time sashes with deep knotted fringe are coming to' the fore. The Roman belts and matching hat bands look very smart with white golf togs, the blouse of which is fastened with jade but tons, and the hat with jade pins. Much fancy jewelry is worn In the daytime with the wash dresses, always har monizing with the gown. Or when white is worn, with the hat and veil. Face Powder to Be Scarce. The French government has prohibit ed the manufacture of face powder from rice, an official report stating that 100,000 soldiers' rations of ric? are wasted daily on women's powder puffs. In Is nearly always extremely becon Ing, especially If the girl has a fresh, healthy color. Frocks of black satin or velvet for older women are usual ly embellished with embroidery or beading in color, whereas for th younger women the black is usually unrelieved by any touch of color, sim ple collar and cuffs of white giving a finish. In, Frocks for -School wear. Smart serge frocks are already be Z made for little girls' school wear. GIRLS! USE LEMONS FOR SUNBURN, TAN Try It!
