A prominent club woman.

" Dkab Mrs. PiitkhAm: Life looks dark indeed when a woman feels that her strength is f adi ng away and she has no hopes of ever being restored. Such was my feeling a few months ago when I was advised that my poor health was caused by prolapsus or falling of the womb. The words sounded like a knell to me, I felt that my sun had set ; but Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege table Compound came to me as an elixir of life ; it restored the lost forces and built me up until my good health returned to me. For four months I took the medicine daily, and each dose added health and strength. I am so thankful for thehelp I obtained through Its use," Mrs. Florence Danforth, 1007 Miles ATe., St. Joseph, Mich. tSOOO forfeit If original of about letter proving gtnuinenese cannot bo produced.

He was playing a picnic match "up country" in Australia when one of the batsmen skied a ball very high be tween the wickets. MacLaren was waiting for the catch, but the striker in running past cried, "Oh, Archie, drop it, do, and Ml allow you to kiss my sister." MacLaren, it is added, was proof against the attempted brib ery. Despoil1 Italian Churches. "The alleged exportation of Italian works of art to the United States," says the Pall Mall Gazette, "seems to proceed gayly, in spite of all protests and schemes for prevention. Thus two Florentine churches have lately been 'relieved' of works by Delia Rob bla amounting in value to 600,000 francs the goods being shipped as 'pork.' The chief delinquent in this fraud, a dealer from Frato, has es caped to the States." Seek Proof of Death. The Venetian courts for some time have been trying to ascertain whether Prince Carlo Vincenzo Glovannell, who is known to have been alive in 1703, is dead yet. The disposal of a claim to more than $1,000,000 is at issue. So far no death certificate in the case has been procurable, but a priest has of fered to swear that the prince is no longer alive, and his deposition will be accepted. "WHACKS" And What They Mean. When Old Mother Nature gives you a "whack" remember "there's a rea son," so try and say "thank you," then Bet about finding what you have done to demand the rebuke, and try and get back into line, for that's the happy place after all. Curious how many highly organised people fail to appreciate and heed the first little, gentle "whacks" of the good old Dame, but go right along with the habit whatever it may be, that causes her disapproval. Whiskey, Tobacco, Coffee, Tea or other unnat ural treatment of the body, until seri ous illness st3 in or some chronic disease. Some people seem to get on very well with those things for a while, and Mother Nature apparently cares but little what they do. Perhaps she has no particular plans for them and thinks it little use to waste time in their training. There are people, however, who seem to be selected by Nature to "do things." The old Mother expects them to carry out some department of her great work. A portion of these select ed ones oft and again nook to stimu late and then deaden the tool (the body) by some one or' more of the drugs Whiskey, Tobacco, Coffee, Tea, Morphine, etc. You know all of these throw down the same class of alkaloids in Chemi cal analysis. They stimulate and then depress. They take from man or wom an the power to do his or her best work. After these peop' have drugged for a time, they get a hint, or mild "whack" to remind them that they have work to do, a mission to perform, and should be about the business, but are loafing along the wayside and be come unfitted for the fame and for tune that waits for them if they but stick to the course and keep the body clear of obstructions so it can carry out the behests of the mind. Sickness is a call to "come up high er." These hints come in various forms. It may be stomach trouble or bowels, heart, eyes, kidneys or general nervous prostration. You may depend upon it when a "whack" comes it's a warning to quit some abuse ana do the right and fair thing with the body. Perhaps it is coffee drinking that offends. That Is one of the greatest causes of human disorder among Americans. Now, then, if Mother Nature Is gen tie with you and only gives light, littl9 "whacks" at first to attract attention, don't abuse her consideration, or she will soon hit you harder, sure. And you may be sure alio will hit you very, very hard if you insist on following the way you have been go ing. It seems hard work to give up a habit, and we try all sorts of plans to charge our ill feelings to soma other cause than the real one. Coffee drinkers when ill will attrl bute the trouble to bad food, malaria, overwork and what not, but they keep on being sick and gradually getting worse until they are finally forced to quit entirely, even the "only one cup a day." Then they begin to get bet ter, and unless they have gone long enough to set p some fixed organic disease, they generally get entirely well. It is easy to quit coffee at once and for all, by having well made Postum, with its rich, deep seal brown coloi which comes to the beautiful golden brown when good cream Is added, and the crisp snap of good, mild Java Is there If the Pottum has been boiled long enough to iring it out It pays to be well and happy for good old Mother Nature then sendi us her blessings of many and varlour kinds and helps us to gain fame ar.d fortune. Strip off the handicaps, leave out the deadening habits, heed Mothei Nature's hints, quit being a loser anr become a winner. She will help yot sure if you cut out the things tha keep you back. "There's a reason" and a profoum one. Look In each package for a copy o the famous lltUe book, "Th Road U WallvlUV HAD RED ANTS FOR SALE. dvertisement That Stirred the Wrath of a Denver Landlady. The apartment houses on Thir .eenth and Stout streets are in a tur moil to-day, says the Denver Post, ind it is all because of red ants. For some time the presence of the ants has been noticed in various of the tenements, and as their number In creased and the efforts to suppress them became more strenuous and less effectual dire threats of what would be done have become frequent. The climax was reached when the head of one of the families discover ed a bedraggled red object in bis soup, and he then and there said that the plague would end; that the lo custs of Egypt were as nothing to these modern creatures of the pantry, and that he thought he could settle them. So the following advertisement was inserted In a newspaper: "Ten thousand ants for sale. Five cents per thousand. Call at 1329 Stout street." So people began to call, and they found Mrs. Mary Bruner very wroth aboutit. "They didn't come to buy any ants." said Mrs. Bruner this morning, "they just came to see them and look at me. No, of course, i never put any such advertisement in the paper, and I haven't had any ants anyway. It's all an outrage and some spite work on the part of the neighbors. You see I have only been in Denver about a month or so. 1 advertised tor room ers, and I have my house full now, and I guess that made some of my neighbors jealous. "As for ants, why, I have had two or three around my back porch, but that is all. Oh, there's one now!" ex claimed Mrs. Bruner, as she stamped determinedly on an offending tnt which tried to crawl into the house from the porch. "Well, you see they don't come from my house, anyway, and as soon as 1 find out who It was that put that notice In the paper I'll have an explanation or know the rea son why." f STOPS COLLISIONS BY RAIL. Tablet System Introduced In New Zea land a Great Success United States Consul General Dil lingham at Auckland, Australia, in a report to the department of commerce I tells of a new system for preventing railway collisions. He says: 1 "An interesting change has recently been made In the signaling system in New Zealand's railway, which, it Is thought, wilPmake collisions absolute ly impossible. I "For a long time, up to a recent date, what is known as the 'block' system has been generally used, but the 'tablet' system has now been In troduced. The essential point in the new system Is that no engine driver is allowed to leave a station without a tablet In his possession, and the ele ment of safety rests on the fact that the machines are so made that It Is Impossible for two of the tablets to be out at the same time. "If a driver leaves Auckland for Newmarket with a tablet that tablet has to be deposited In the machine at Newmarket before another tablet is Issued allowing a return train to leave that station for Auckland, and the electrical connection between the two stations makes it impossible to extract a tablet from the Auckland machine until the tablet has been put Into the machine at Newmarket. 1 "It is claimed by railroad expe-ts that under the new system two trains can not be on the same section nt once, so that the danger of collisions Is entirely done away with."

In the midst of an earnest conversation about the South Carolina dispensaries. Senator Tillman said: "I am reminded of an old man I used to know who drank too much. He was a fine old fellow In other re spects, and it was pitiful to see him disgracing himself and his family by the abuse of alcohol. I took him to task one day. I reid him a long lec ture on the sin of drunkenness. "Water.' I said, 'is the thing; stick to water. James.'

THE PILLS THAT CURE RHEUMATISM Mrs. Henry Story, of No. 532 Muskingdum Ave-, Lino vjlle,Ohio,saysi "My husband suffered from rheumatism so that he could hardly stand. His back hurt and he had such pain in his left arm that he could not rest nigh or day. The doctor did him no good and it was not until he tried Dr. Williams' Fink Pills that he was helped. Six boxes cured him completely and he has not had an ache or a pain since. We think the pills are the best medicine in the world."

PERUNA is known from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Letters of congrat ulation and commendation testify ing to the merits of Peruna as a catarrh remedy are pouring in from every State of the Union. Dr. Hartman is recelvinir hundreds of such letters daily. All classes write these letters, from the highest to the lowest. The outdoor laborer, the indoor arti an, the clerk, the cditor.the statesman, the preacher all agree that Peruna is tho catarrh remedy of the age.

I'atarrh is well-nigh universal; almost omnipresent. Peruna is the only absolute safeguard known. A cold is the beginning of catarrh.
