FOR WO MAN'S HEALTH
Earnest Letters from Women Re lieved of Pain by Mrs. Pinkham. " Dear Mrs.^ Pinkham : —Before I commenced to take your medicine I ■was in a terrible state, wishing myself •dead a good many times. Every part of my body seemed to pain in some way. At time of menstruation my suffering was something terrible. I thought there was no cure for me, but after taking several bottles of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound all my bad feelings were gone. I am now well and enjoying good health. I shall always praise your medicine."— Mrs. Amos Feschleh, Box 220, Romeo, Mich.

About a year ago I happened to pick up a paper that contained an advertisement •of Lydia E. Pinkham'« Vegetable Coin pound, and when I read how it had helped others, 1 thought it might help me, and decided to give it a trial. I did so, and as a result am now feeling perfectly well. 1 wish to thank you for the benefit your medicine has been to me."—M rs. ClaraStiebkr, Diller, Neb. No flore Pain "Dear Mrs. Pinkham Your Vege table Compound has been of much benefit to me. When my menses first appeared they were very irregular. They occurred too often and did not 'leave for a week or more. I always suffered at these times with terrible pains in my back and abdomen. Would be in bed for several days and would not be exactly rational at times. 1 took Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and menses became regular and pains left me entirely."—M rs. E F.

Happy, happy was the boy a-dreamlng sweet and long, Fanned by the breeze that tossed the haw and raffed the thrush's song; For the whole glad day he had to loaf, he and himself together, While all the mouths of nature blèw the flutes of fairy weather. The year's great treadmill round was done, its drudgery ended well. that slantwise sailed on high. It's good to work and good to win the - wages of the strong; Sweet is the hum of labor's hire, and sweet the workman's song; But once a year a lad must loaf, and dream, and chew a straw, And wish he were a falcon, free, or a catbird, in the hawl —Independent. j i •**•«••«< I Cupid ********* Cupid with a Jimmy * J W •A******«»**»«»**** HEN John Trumbull fell In love with vivacious and sprightly Gertrude Moore no one would ever have SU8peeted that he was a scholar, a thinker and a settled man of 40. His general actions were those of a youth of 18 undergoing his first case of love. The upshot of it was that when these two became en gaged Miss Moore pulled Mr. Trumbull around by his philosophical nose and made him dance to her fiddling as sult aA her eanrlelmi« and »handln« 7° ner capncl °US ana Changing moods. Matrimony found the same condition of affairs. Every domestic question was settled by Mrs. Trumbull, no mat ter whether It was the choice of an apartment or the selection of a new eoffee grinder. Mr. Trumbull, being still In a state of blinding affection and admiration for the little girl of 20 whom he had wooed and won, let her have her way, with the result that he was being henpecked to the queen'a taste. I But as the years went by, as the years have a way of doing, Mr. Trum bull gradually awakened to the one sided state of affairs. Mrs. Trumbull, being selfish and possessing a thistle down Intellect, fancied that It would ; not do to let Mr. Trumbull know that ■he was at all fond of him. Some old , lady had told her once that when a man knows a woman loves him his af fection becomes chilled like whipped cream in an Ice chest. So she stuck up her nose—It stuck up of Its own ac cord by the way—and went her usual pace of bullyragging and worrying him. She would do this, she would do that—what John thought didn't mat ter. i But, as said before, a change finally came over John's heart. He still con sidered that dainty wife of his quite the smartest, cleverest woman in the world, but, strange to say, he was be coming aware of her peculiar powers of dictating and laying down the law. John was quiet and Inoffensive, and just the kind of a man that offers splendid opportunities for the woman with a will of her own. For a long time Mrs. John did not observe that her husband's substantial admiration was growing thin almost to a shadow. But when she did realize it, the blow was something fearful. It had been her opinion that even though she were to sell her best clothes to the rag man or burn the house up or turn his hair white with her everlasting criticisms John would ever remain the same— faithful, adoring, enduring. One morning John didn't kiss his Wife when he went downtown to busi ness. She moped and wept and scold led the baby and the kitchen maid, and then decided she didn't care. From !that time on things went from bad to "worse and from worse to even worse than that. Once In a great while when John's old-time vision of love for his wife came up he would take her In his arms and tell her that she was the prettiest thing in the world. Follow ing her old-time tactics, Mrs. John would In turn comment on his bad choice of a necktie or let loose the pleasant Information that his collar was soiled on the edge. John's heart would sink and he'd tramp off to work feeling like an orphan asylum In a derby hat and creased trousers. As it was not John's nature to war against anyone, he simply kept himself out of Mrs. John's way. Sunday after noons he went out for a walk.. Some times he went over to the North Side to see an old college chum of bis. These trips were his only dissipations. One Sunday afternoon, when he and his old friend were discussing some particular exciting college scrimmage that had taken place fifteen years back, the telephone bell rang, and a woman's voice begged to speak to Mr. Trumbull. He went to the 'phone. "Is that you, Gertrude?" "Yes, John. And won't you come dome, please. I let Sadie take baby *ver to your mother's and everybody Id the building Is out and I'm having tbs fidgets. I don't know what I'm •eared «bout, but I'm Just nervous." "All. right dear," said John, and home he went, not stopping long enough to finish up the recollections of the college fight. At home he found his wife sitting curled up on a little settee looking very much as she bad looked when five years before he had begged and entreated and kissed her into saying "Yes." She was twisting her hand kerchief lato little wads and ropes, and he knew by that that she was dis tracted about something. "I know you think I'm a silly to feel this way when It's not even twilight yet. But I know positively that some body tried the kitchen windows while I was lying down, and I just couldn't get over It. I always was afraid of burglars and ghosts.'' And then sba had a nervous chill. John said nothing. He took out a copy of Spencer and lighted a cigar. After a time the baby was brought home and nut to bed. Mrs. Trumbull had recovered from her nervousness and was peeking out from behind a window shade listening to a conversa tion that was going on In the court. The servant employed by the family In the apartment just below the Trum bulls* abode was in the flat opposite telling the occupants of that place that she was unable to get Into the house. "I can't turn the key, and If you don't mind, ma'am, I'll go through your window." The people didn't mind at all. They even held the girl's parasol and pock etbook while she clambered from one window' to the other. Then came a crash. It was a ter rific crash. Had the girl fallen Into the court? No. The sounds that came from the floor below were unlike those heard when Hendrick Hudson played ninepins in the Adirondacks. At that point came a shriek, such as the stage heroine gives vent to when the villain gets after her with a butcher knife. It was sickening. Mrs. Trumbull waited half a second, then stuck her head out of the window, and with the help of half a dozen other feminine voices called: "Maryl Mary! What's ths matter?" The reply was a volley of sobs and squealR winding up with: "The flat's been robbed!" Mr. Trumbull was surprised to see his wife with hair streaming down hei back and hands clutching the folds of a bath robe, go scooting through the li brary out into the hall and down the stairs. In ten minutes she returned. Her eyes were big and black and scared. Her teeth were chattering, and her hands were busy with each other. She curled up on the divan and looked at her husband. "John, what do yon think? Ths Smiths' fiat has been robbed and there's hardly a scrap of anything left They came through the kitchen win dow. They even took some Persian rugs and Mrs. Smith's sealskin. And the silver's all gone, and the house— oh, you just should see It! It's kne« deep with the things' that they've pulled out of the dressers and ward robes." John continued to read his Spencer. "That's too bad," he said.. Silence of five minutes. "John," she spoke very softly. "Yes?" he asked, not looking up from Spencer. "John, do you know I'd just b« scared stiff if you weren't here." John smiled sadly. "You won't go off on that hunting trip, will you?" "Well—11—11," he drawled uncertain ly. "I just won't let you, now. They might come in and take my old candle stick, or the baby, or my grandmoth er's set of china. And—I'm not a bit afraid when you're here. Honest, I'm not!" John's chest swelled up. This was something new. He threw Spencer on the floor and went and looked at his revolver. Then he tried the dining room windows. After that he threw his arms out and doubled them up to see If bis muscle swelled up as It did when he was a lad at school. He walked back and forth through their bit of a fiat and held his head up high. Then he sat down beside that little tyrant of a wife and looked her in the eyes. She giggled hysterically and ran her fingers across his mustache. Just ns she used to do when poor John was so crazy with love for her that she could have pulled out every hair of his head and he'd never have known It. "Dear," John said softly, "I never knew before that there was any place for me In this house, that I filled any want here. But now I find that I am useful, that I am a burglar-scarer. God bless that man that stole those things downstairs. It'll be hard on the Smiths, but it's a mighty fine thing for me." And they lived happy ever after. Or had for a week, as the burglary only took .place that far back.—Chicago Tlmea-Herald. Whole Town of Fiddle-M kern. The only place In the world where vlolln-maklng may be said to constitute the staple industry Is Markneukirchen, In Saxony, with Its numerous surround ing villages. There are altogether about 15,000 people In this district engaged exclusively in the manufacture of vio lins. The Inhabitants, from the small boy and girl to the wrinkled, gray headed veteran and aged grandmother, are all constantly employed making some part or other of this musical in strument. The man who Is as honest as the day is long never gets up at 4 o'clock in the morning to be led Into tempta tion. Some women are near-sighted, but they m a n a g e to hear all that's going on. V. t. ft Cheap Hay Barn. Tlie accompanying cut shows how a light hay barn may be constructed very cheaply, and yet It will serve every purpose of storage for hay or grain, If necessary. It Is made of 2 by 4 stuff I for a small building, or 2 by 6 for a larger one. The posts are 10 feet high, and the building Is 24 feet wide. The drawing shows one of the bents, of which there may be four for a barn 24 feet square; for a longer one the bents may be set six or eight feet apart. All that is necessary Is to set up the bents and connect them together by frame of hat barn. plates spiked to the posts, and then board up the sides with, clap boards, or with common boards. The building may be strengthened by diagonal braces, and the root boards will add to its strength. As there Is no weight on the building, the contents of It resting on the ground, the timber will be quite light With shorter posts such a building as this will make an excel lent sheep or cattle bam. "Insulating;" the Roosts. Ordinary roosts in henhouses are nailed direftly to the walls. This con nection gives vermin a chance to reach the roosts very readily from the cracks In the walls, where they gather often In Large numbers. There Is a manu factured contrivance In the form of a bracket with an oil cup In It that gives no connection between the roosts and the wall except over the oil that Is In the cup. A home-made arrange ment for securing much the same re sult is shown in this cut. A stout wire passes through the ends of the roosts and Is drawn taut between two pieces of studding, into which screweyes have been Inserted In the way shown AN "TNSULATEn" ROOST. in the Illustration. A cut is made In the studding so that the screweyes may be inserted in a nearly upright posi tion. The base of the sereweye Is wound with tow, which Is kept satu rated with oil. In this way the roosts ire perfectly "Insulated" from any ap proach by vermin, except such as are brought to the roosts by the fowls, and these can be kept under control by frequent dusting with insect powder. Prize Sliorthorn Bull. The most successful exhibitor at the Dublin Society's spring show was the queen, who exhibited three Shorthorns ROYAI. DUKE. And took a first prize with each. One of these was Royal Duke, which also won the championship. This bull Is of exceptional merit, and last year took third prize at Windsor, second at Maid stone and first at the Highland So ciety's show In Edinburgh. Raising; Sweet Potatoes. Select rich, sandy soil and plow deep. Be sure that the ground Is fine, and then throw it up In small ridges, about three feet apart These ridges can quickly be shaped up with a boe to a uniform size. 1 think It best to leave the ridges stand several days so that the moisture will get more evenly dis tributed through them. As soon as the danger of frost is past in the spring, and the ground Is warm, select the plants. Take the plant in one band and with the othei hand make a hole pretty well down in the top of the ridge, so that permanent moisture may be se cured to the roots. Press the dirt rather firmly around the roots. Set the plants 15 to 18 inches apart I would not water the plants unless the ground Is very dry. Set the plants out In the evening, or, still better, during cloudy weather. When all the plants begin to grow and the weeds appear, with a boe, shave the surface of the ridge away from the planta, and when the planta begnl to vine, boe the dirt up around them and the "tending" la done. Dig before frost and pack In dry aaw *uat Avoid letting the potatoes get a a It a chilled, and you can have sweet pota toes until spring.—Mrs. Charles E. Mor ris. Plowing;. When the plow is hard to bold It ie safe to say that it is hard work for the teams to draw It. This may be be cause of roots or stones, in wblcb case the cause is obvious, but if not some thing else is wrong and the cause should be found and the trouble reme died. Is the point of the plow dull or the cutter that is used In front of It In sward land? It would be cheaper to get a new plow than to wear out plow men and team with a plow in poor con dition. But quite often the trouble arises from the line of draught not being right. It would seem that any farmer should know If bis plow "run her nose into tiie ground," so that he found he had to bear bis weight on the handles, or pulled out so he had to lift on it to keep It In, or whether It took too wide a furrow or too narrow a one, and should know how to remedy It, yet, says a farm writer, we have known a farm hand to work all day with a plow when he was putting out more strength every hour than he would have used in a day's work with the same plow after he had hitched the team properly. And the team was as tired as he. Irish Tobacco Growing;. It has been found that tobacco can be successfully grown in Ireland, says an agricultural exchange. This Is not strange considering the fact that to bacco is grown In this country In North ern States, where the seasons for growth are shorter than in Ireland. But there is always a good deal of moisture in the Irish summer. It is caused, In fact, by Its nearness to the Gulf stream which makes the Island warm and gives Its reputation of being always vernal. The moisture In the air in jures the quality of the tobacco as it makes that moist So though the plant grows most luxuriantly and is a very paying crop, Irish-grown tobacco Is not likely to become so popular as to displace that grown under our own bright, sunny skies. The lack of sun shine in summer makes Irish-grown to bacco rank and poorly flavored. What the Irish people grow of tobacco will quite likely be largely used by them selves. Those who want the best to bacco and can pay for It will use either the American or some other imported product A Horse's Broken Heart. A veterinarian telds of a horse that died of a broken heart. He found all the organs healthy with the exception of the heart, which was ruptured longi tudinally. In looking for a cause for the rupture it came out that the horse, which was 6 years old, had suddenly been separated from its mate, a young mare, with which it had been raised, and from which it bad never been sep arated since birth. From the day of the separation the horse never ate any thing, and the fourth day, after seeing its companion, for a time and being taken away again, It fell dead. Harness BlackIng. A good cheap blacking for harness, which is to be applied with a sponge and polished with a brush. Is prepared as follows: Melt four ounces of mut ton suet with twelve ounces of bees wax, then add twelve ounces of sugar candy, four ounces of soft soap dis solved In a little water, and two ounces of finely powdered indigo. This, when well mixed, Is thinned out with one half pint of turpentine. Frequent ap plications of this mixture will render the harness waterproof and greatly in crease its durability. ! i Gleanings. For hard-working horses nil grain should be ground and fed upon moist ened chafed bay. Food thus prepared Is readily masticated. Farm-yard manure or feeding highly concentrated foods on a pasture supply the most appropriate fertilizing ele ments for permanent pasture. Burrowing animals are driven out of their holes or suffocated by a Califor nian's compound,'which Is formed of sulphur, tar and petroleum, applied by fibrous. Inflammable material, being ig nited and inserted in the burrow by a pair of slender tongs. The agricultural experiment station at Stillwater, Okla., has issued a bulle tin reporting the results of field experi ments In 1899. Tests of different meth ods of growing corn, Kaffir corn, cot ton and castor beans are reported. Tha bulletin Is sent free to all who apply. Potatoes are rapidly dug, cleaned and sacked by a new apparatus which has a plow to unearth the tubers, the dirt and potatoes falling into an endless chain elevator, which delivers them into a hopper with slat sides, which re moves the dirt and drops the potatoes Into a bag. Continued effort should be made to Increase the acreage of alfalfa. This should be regarded as a crop for hay rather than for pasture. Spring sow ing on clean, well prepared soil has la many cases given good results. It sowing at this time fails. It may be re peated in August or early September, which is the most favorable time for fall sowing. Trees dying from Injury by fires or weakened in vitality offer favorable conditions for the manipulation of vast numbers of destructive Insects. More over, the trees wblcb have been killed by Insects furnish In their fallen branches and partially decayed trunks and dry bark a moat favorable propa gating ground for the starting, spread and perpetuation of forest Aras. I NO REMEDY EQUALS PERUNA, SO THE WOMEN ALL SAY. Miss Susan Wymar. Miss Susan Wymar, teacher in tb« Richmond school, Chicago, 111., writ«« the following letter to Dr. Hartman regarding Pe-ru-na.
