PAIN IN THE BACK Do not worn* about a pain in your back. The worry will do you more harm than the pain. The serious dis eases of the kidneys seldom or never produce such pains, while the cause of most backache is muscular rheuma tism, which Is painful but never fatal. Lumbago is a form of muscular rheu matism, so is stiff neck. Sufferers from any form of mus cular rheumatism affecting the joints should keep the general health at the highest standard by the use of a non alcoholic tonic like Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and eat good, nourishing food without too much meat. Proper nu trition and good blood are the best means of fighting rheumatism. Medi cines do not control the disease di rectly, but a well-nourished system will often throw it off. Rheumatism quickly thins the blood. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills act directly on the blood and as they build it up and strengthen the system there is an Increased resist ance to the"rheumatic poisons. In this way many rheumatic sufferers have found complete recovery. A book. "Building Up the Blood," which tells about the treatment of rheumatism, is free for the asking from the Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Schenectady, N. Y.'

It was not her beauty of feature that held our eyes, nor her costume. But there was something about her face and expression—I risked it and asked: "Would you mind telling me how you keep your complexion so dazzling pure? Don't think me impertinent, but you seeiri over 30, yet haven't a line in your face, and your cheeks are quite peach-like. How do you do it?" Laughing, she said: "That's easy; I remove my skin. Sounds shocking, doesn't it? But listen. Instead of cos metics I use only pure mercolized wax, procurable at any druggist's. I apply this nightly, like cold cream, washing it off mornings. This gently absorbs the soiled, weatherbeaten film-skin, without Fain or discomfort, thus revealing the resh, clear underskin. Every woman has a beautiful complexion underneath, you know. Then, to ward off wrinkles I use a face bath made by dissolving powdered saxolite (one ounce) in one half pint witch hazel—a harmless astringent which 'tones' the skin won derfully. Very simple, isn't it?" I thought so. I'm now trying her plan and like it Immensely.—Millicent Brown in The Story Teller.
