CASE of Mrs. HAM Declares Lydia E. Pinkham’* Vegetable Compound Saved Her Life and Sanity. Shamrock, Mo. — "I feel it my doty to tell the public the condition of my —Brag?health before using a your medicine. I had falling, inflamma tion and congestion, female weakness, , pains in both sides, backaches and bear ing down pains, was short o f memory, nervous, impatient, passed sleepless nights, and had neither strength nor energy. There was always a fear and dread in my mind, I had cold, nervous, weak spells, hot flashes over my body. I had a place in my right side that was so sore that I could hardly bear the weight of my clothes. I tried medicines and doctors, but they did me little good, and I expected to get out again. I got Lyti*i E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and Blood Purifier, and I cer tainly would hcve been in grave or in an asylum if your medicines had not saved me. But new I work all day, sleep well at night, cat anything I want, have no hot flashes or weak, nervous spells. All pains, acnes, fears and dreads are gone, my house, children and husband are no longer neglected, as I am almost entirely free of the bad symptoms I had before taking your remedies, and all is pleasure and happiness in my home.”— Mrs. Josie Ham, R.

PROPER CARE OF BLANKETS ) Usefulness May Be Greatly Added to by Adoption of Methods De scribe i Here. If housewives knew what a great saving there was in having three or even four sets of blankets .or their beds, in as many weights, they would not hesitate to make the outlay for them. The cotton or silk and cotton blankets of June, July and August should be washed and rebound, if needed, and put away in their tar bags j to give plact to those of cotton and j wool. Now, the all-wool blankets, as all housewives know, are most difficult to launder perfectly, and are not al ways satisfactorily dry cleaned, so every effort must be made to keep 1 them clean. This is done by using them only in the extreme cold months, December, January and February, then shaking and airing them care fully, putting them away. If the up per sheet is very long, so that it folds over, and V e spread Is used over the ! blankets, they may really be used two seasons or mere without a real wash ing being necessary. This method prolongs the life of the blankets and makes them always seem new. And once in two years one may afford to buy anew pair of blankets to use for best or to replace those that have grown the shabbiest In service. Old blankets are always in demand In the household economy for under blankets, ironing board pads, scrub j rags and polishing hardwood floors, and in a dozen other ways. The Indian blrnkets offered in our markets today are rather new, but already in demand, especially those of the Navajo weaving. This tribe I numbers about 1,600 natives and they have a million sheep on their reserva tions. The designs on their blankete are geometrical as ? rule, and the colors are black, blu ?, red, yellow and gray. They are warm and durable, sc are in great demand for northern travelers and residents at the army posts. They are also quite a dominant note in the eastern blanket centers. OLD CHICKEN FOR FRYING More Economical and as Appetizing as Young Bird if Prepared In This Fashion. Few women know that from the much-despised old hen one can make a delicious dish of fried chicken. The | market price of old fowl Is alwayu from 4 to 6 cents less per pound than 1 that for the young birds; also, the | former has the better flavor. Clean and cut up the old bird as fo r ! stewing (this must be done in the morning for an evening dinner), put In stew pan two small onions, some pars ley, salt to taste and a pinch of pap j rika. Add the chicken and enough water and stew gently until tender. Do not take the fowl from the stew pot too soon, as herein lies the secret of a tasty meal, but allow it to remai a In its own juices until you are ready to fry it. Then remove to a platter and lightly flour each piece. Have your frying pan hot; add your butter and a few tablespoonfuls cf olive oil. Fry to a delicate brown and serve In a bed of lettuce, with milk pressing, or cream, if preferred. The chicken stock will make a fine cream of chicken soup or clear soup for luncheon. If the hen is fat, there will be on the soup stock, when cooled, a large amount of rendered fat, whicn maybe skimmed off and used for frying potiv toes, thus affording saving in lard.

GOES OVER TO NEXT WINTER President Wilson Consents to Post ponement After Realizing Difficul ties of the Question and Differ ences cf Opinion ir Congress. By GEORGE CLINTON. Washington.—Two commissions, one authorized by the United States gov ernn ent and 'mother organized by the southern commercial congress, went to Europe to study the subject of agricultural credits. Their reports were voluminous arj apparently were prepared carefully. It Is probable that a majority in eo agree a thought that when these reports had been 6tud.ed and embodied in a bill the last word on the subject had been spoken. President Wilson has consented that rural credits, or land bauk, legislation shall go over until the next session. In doing so senators and representa tiven say Mr. Wilson has recognized exis.ing conditions in congress. The land bank question, it is urged, Is a much harder problem to solve than many persons supposed when It was said that a bill once prepared b> seem ingly competent authority could be passed with comparatively little de bate. Now a writer of discernment on the subject says: "But the prophets of legislation did not take into ccount the size of the United States; nor the fact that a system which might work admirably in a country like Ger mar y or France migli: disclose grave defects in a country where one state alone Is larger than Germany and France put together Moreover, the | people of the United States do not [ take as naturally to federal aid in their affairs as the people of Europe, and often see an embarrassment in federal intervention where Europeans would see only a help.” No Bill Reported by Committees. For the reasons just, given, it seems likely that a rural credits bill did not conie forth as quickly as it might from the congressional propagating plant. There have been several bills intro duced, one bearing the names of Sen ator Fletcher of Florida and Repre sentative Moss of Indiana and which embodies the conclusions of the com mission appointed by the government. No bill as yet has been reported out of the banking and currency comrnit j tee of either house or senate. In : truth, the two committees dodged the | whole subject in a way by appointing a joint sub-committee whose duty it I was to be to prepare a bill which | world be acceptable to the administra ! tion. Differences have arisen among the I members cf both branches over : fundamentals. Senator Hollis wants a national land bank capitalized by the government, while Representative Mobs and those who think with him believe that private capital should be employed. Representative Bathrick of Ohio has introduced a bill making the postal bank funds available for use by the land banks. One of the main questions is how beet to organize a system that will provide money in the safest and surest way for use in undeveloped regions where profitable faming appears to be possible. The men who believe in a thoroughly federalized system de clare that money cannot be raised for | tho development of a. country like this i except through the government. In | tho agricultural regions as yet unde ; veloped interest rates ’re very high and the assertion lit that the rates cannot be reduced unless the govern ment shall be a participant in the ; transaction. Decide to Adjourn July 10. The Democratic majority in con gross has made up its mind to bring about adjournment by July 10 if pos sible. Word to this effect was re ceived with considerable surprise be cause coupled with it was the word that some of the legislation which was expected the president would ask to have passed at this session would be put over probably “until a more convenient season.” The anti-trust measures will be passed by the house, a caucus of the Democrats to make action a party duty having made the order of the day. It is held by the administra tion’s supporters that with the tariff, the currency and ai:ti-trust measures enacted B'.nce Mr. Wilson came into office the record of legislative achieve* ment will be a sufficiently strong one with which to go before the country in the congressional elections. When Senator Kern and other Democratic leaders In the upper house talked to the president about the possibility of an adjournment early in July, It was agreed that con gress could put through the tolls nr .wal bill and anti trust legislation. Rural credits will tie put off almost unquestionably until next winter.

Crockett, writing some time ago in the National Magazine, was made in the summer of 1666, when S.eur de la Mothe. a captain of the Cirignan regiment, with few compa res of French soldiers, was sent to what is now known as Isle La Motte, n>ar the northern entrance tc l.ake Champlain, to erect a fort, which was part of a chain of formications extend irg south from the Sit. Lawrence river. This fort was dedicated to St Anne, the mother of the Vllrgln, and hoac a chapel was eretced. lln the fall of 16(56 Fort St Anne was used a rendez vous for 600 Frei.ch veterans, 600 Canadian habitants and 100 Indians, uader commend of Marquis de Tracy, tills being a force tent out to subdue the Mohawks. Protably this fort was a alntained only a lew years, but isle La Mctte was long a favorite storing WAUSAU PILOT and senators who onrose tne ;< provision in the immigration bai co . was passed by the house of represen tatives were convinced not long ago that Mr. Wilson would see to it that because of the reading test, the meas ure w T culd not be allowed to become a .aw. Opinion in Washington, how ever, seems to have changed recently and now the understanding is that Mr. Wilson will put his name to the bill if it gets to him. The southern Democratic represen tatives have little or nothing to fear from the votes which they cast to help make the immigration bill into law with the reading test incorpor ated. It is a different story and an essentially different one with those who come from the large citiss. Demo crats of New York, Chicago, St. Louis and other big cities do not like the bill and while most cf them voted against it in the house it is said that they fear the recoil effects cf the leg islation because it was proposed, was put through the house and may be put through the senate by Democratic ma jorities. The signature necessary to make the bill into law would be that of a Democratic president. Trade With Latin-America. The first vessel on commerce bent has passed through the Panama canal. John Barrett, director general of the Pan-American union, wants the United states to understand the great op portunities which are before it for increased trade when the canal be comes, as It will shortly, an active highway of commerce between the two great oceans. Mr. Barrett uer haps is the last American authority on all matters pertaining to the trade and development of the countries on this continent which lie to the south of the United States. Mr. Barrett has had something to 6ay to your correspondent about the increased trade opi>ortuuities which will come to all western America as the result of the opening of the water way. "Reaching directly south from a line drawn from San Diego, Cal., to Key West, Fla.,” said he, "are 20 countries covering an area of 9,000,000 square miles! This is three times the con nected area of the United States Their population is, approximately, 70,000,000. This is 6even-tenths of the population of the United States, and it is destined to increase even more rapidly in the future through immigra ticn and general development than is the population of this country. These 20 countries last year conducted a for eign trade —that is, bought and sold with the rest of the world —valued at the extraordinary figure of $2,500,000,- 000. This total is all the more impres sive when we bear in mind that it rep resents the remarkable increase of sl.- 000,000,000 in the last ten years Should Grow Even i*,ore Rapidly. "Inasmuch as ‘commerce is the life of nations,’ these 20 sister republic* of Central and South America can cer tainly be called 'lusty and full-blooded. 1 If they can carry on a trade of $2,500,- 000,000 per annum before the Panama canal is completed, and before the world generally has awakened to their enormous potentialities and possibili ties, is it not reasonable to estimate that it will grow to $5,000,000,000 with in ten, or at the outside, fifteen years after the canal is completed and the great eastern and western routes of commerce are swung around to north and south lines, as now seems inevit able? Surely prizes of commerce es timated at such figures as these are worthy of the most earnest and per sistent efforts of the business interests of America. “There is a great deal of nonsense and buncombe about Latin-Americans not caring to trade with the business men of the United States. I do not know of a single American exporter or importer who is not just as ready tc buy from, or sell to, an American manufacturer or merchant as he is t.: buy from or sell to a manufacturer oi merchant of Europe, provided the American can offer him the same .i.dvamtagee as the man from Eu rope. There is, occasionally, anti United States talk in some Latin American newspapers, and there are now and then anti-American out bursts of political agitators, but the rank and file of the business men oi Latin-America are not affected by these incidents. Not Monopolized by Europe. "Before this I have spoken of the great world trade of Latin-America. Naturally, the next question to be an swered is: What is the share of the United States in Pan-American com meree? In answering this question 1 desire to dispose of several bogies and fallacies which are too often pro claimed by uninformed writers and speakers. It Is not true that the United States has a small trade with Latin- America. It is not true that the United States is being distanced by European countries in that field. It Is not true that European exporters, manufactur ers and Importers are monopolizing Latin-American markets to the disad vantage of those of the United States. It is not true that the Latin-Americans prefer to trade with Europeans rather than with North America. It is not true that there ar® no good steamship fa cl’.itHa for Bade and travel between the United Suites and these countries. “All these conditions did exist a few years ago, but, as a result of the ex traordinary propaganda and effort of the Pan-American union and of the state and commerce departments of the United States, a vast change has come about, and now tae trade of the United States with L' Jn-America is advancing so rapidly ana sc satisfac torily that it should be encouraged to continue and extend ita efforts to a still greater degree." place along this great natural high way, and it is reasonable to suppose that the site of the French fortress never again became wholly a wilder ness. Bird Farming. It is quite within the bounds of pos sibility, says the Strand Magazine, that within a very few years bird farming will be practised in the tropics, because the least civilized of men respond to the possibility of mak ing money; and, whatever our person al viw may be, it cannot be denied that the demand for the skins and feathers of birds is an ever-increasing one, and is following the growth of na tional wealth. With criamiUees for economic pres ervation to th. great capitals of Eu rope. and with a trade willing to ac cept their findings aud give prompt ef fect to them, we may look In a little time for the end of a reckless killing and the recognition of the simple truth that a live bird, capable o:f reproducing its species and renewing its plumes, it far more valuable than a dead one.

But she isr’ v . the girl he takes to the theater, cr to the restaurant aft—"ward, ordering wine for her. exultant over the sensation she creates when she dances the tango with him the length of the spacious dining room. Then there's the pretty stenographer in his uncle’s office. She is the girl he p-esents with books because she refuses bon bons. He waits for her cn ttormy evening; to take her to a car. ami it is she of whom he asks advice on matters relating to her sex —whether a fellow was justified in refusing an in vitation to some affair which he did not earn to attend, although he half suspected it was arranged for hi3 benefit. He considers the advisability of breaking with two or three of his pleasant com.-'••"ions ere they heed me sweethearts. But i' is so difficult that he fer.rs he is equally in love with each a‘id every one of them. When his dear old motier asks hin to bring his best girl around fer some little home gathering, he does a let of thinking. The dear old soul would not under stand the girl who doted on golf, but detested breadmaking and home du ties. Nor would the girl mad over tango and cocktails appeal to her. He concludes his automobile girl would not be looked upon with favor by his mother, who might think the lassie wouldn’t bother her head to check him if he went too fast dow’n pleasure’s read. As for the stenog rapher, true, she hadn’t fancy clothes, hut she had a very sensible head on her trim little body. She wasn’t what might be called a beauty, but she had a smile and a winning way that was wonderfully taking. Her dignity would please. There was no frivolity about her. Her life was serious. Be ing the only support of a widowed in valid mother, not only the bread earn ing. but the bread making, devolved upon her. Last, but by no means least, many a time he wearied of the other girls in turn, mentally vowing each call on this or that one should be his last. He never wearied talking to the stenographer. Each time he talked with her he liked her the better. There was something about her which made her seem different from all the rest —a subtle charm which made her heart glow when he thought of her. He knew by “these signs and tokens” that she was the girl ana the only one "in the bunch” whom he would care to take to his mother as his best girl. IF A V/IFE REFUSES HER SMILES. Nor do they trust their tongues a'one, Buts leak a language of their own; Can reed a nod, a shrug, a look. Far better than a printed book; Convey a libel in a frown And wink a reputation down. The success of marriage depends largely upon the view each takes of being companionable after the new ness of the honeymoon has worr. off. The bride with a will of her own re members tt.e well-meant advics of some of the old aunties of the neigh borhood: “You must begin as you mean to end, my dear! One or the other will be boss in the home, ilome young husbands will be only too glad to give the reins Into the wife’s hands. There are others not so docile.” Fool sh Is the bride who acts on the advice of otters. No two husbands are alike. The bride who expects her young husband to hand over every cent o’ his wages from the start may run against the first rock of disaster to her matrimonial bark. Ihe man who ie not used to baviug a woman run his pocketbook may demur. He Is eager to do what is righ t by her. After much discussion he signifies his willingness to give her the great er part of his salary, but insists firm ly upen withholding a small part of It each week —assuring her that he is making good use of the money 1l his own way, but putting her off evas ively when she insists upon knowing just what it is being used for.

Killed by disferrtblfng. Crushed by ingratitude, And—this—is— Love. When love words have been spoken | and plighted vow? exchanged, the be j lief 1r that the si ken tie thus woven is to last; that tiilie will never change ; it. There are loves and loves. Some ! are of the quality which endures; others are of so loose a warp that it soon frays out of it3 own volition. In other words, the love which is born of a fleeting ffney soon filters out | of the heart, as though it were an hour-glass. There are men who cannot bind their affections any one woman for a length of tine without the tie becoming irksome lb them. These are the men who de'iberately plan to l break away. With some sweethearts this is is not so easily done. There are woman whom love las so blinded that they fail to realize their lover is losing affection for them. If he disappoints her by not com- I ing to take her oit, she make* all sorts of excuses in her heart for him. j The reason he offer} is a lame one, but it passes with her. He makes up his mind to break wilt her, surely, but j slowly. He cannot make her jealous; i his ( oldness and lack of attention to I her have no effect. Even (he little | quarrels which he Lets up she bridges j over w ithout ado. He finds it the most difficult task , of his life to unra el the old love tie; iit will stretch, hue never break. He j wonders, as all me n do, why a woman | will persist in digging to a love that has no warmth for her. Such men I should have a heert to-heart talk with a sweetheart as saon as they discover their change of a>titude toward her. it is cruel to allow her to feed her I heart on hopes cf marriage which he | knows wall never be realized. He must know the fault of the situation is en tirely his own. He made love to the woman on the impulse of the moment, and proposed marriage before he was sure of himself. Unraveling a love kfiol Is tedious work Men who are changeable of heart usu.-.lly marry at la*t but the girl they wed will not stand for a long, drawn-out courtship. They must speak quickly if they hope to win her hand. They know there’s no loitering in love’s path: The love in this instance is unravel able material. It centers in the mar riage ring. A girl should beware of the lover who makes no effort to keep his hold on her affections. Expedition to Define Boundary. The Turco-Persian boundary has heretofore been one of the prob lematical features on the map of Asia. As far back as 1843, a mixed commis sior attempted to define this frontier with only pariial euccess, and since that time repeated efforts have been marie by the great powers, as well as the two countries immediately con cerned, to complete the task, but the boundary has remained rather a zone of debatable terriiory than a definite line. Finally, in November of last year, a complete ur demanding on the subject was reached, and a protocol was signed in Constantinople in ac cordance with which a commission consisting of British, Russian, Turkish and Persian delegates will undertake a surrey of the boundary. This is ex ported to require at least eighteen months, and will dciubtles6 be produc tive of interesting geographical re sults.—Scientific American. Unlimited Mussets.

ERUPTION SPREAD ON FACE 810 East Elm St., Streator, 111. —“A running sore jrcke out above my right eye, which spread over my en tire face. It started as a small pim ple. I scratched it open and the con tents of this small pimple ran down my face. Wherever this ran anew sore appeared. They itched and burned terribly; I couldn’t touch my face it burned so. It disfigured my face terribly and I couldn't be seen for everyone was afraid of it. It looked like a disease of some kind; it was all red and a heavy white crust on it. Everybody kept out of my way, afraid it would spread. I lost rest at night and I couldn’t bear 1o have any thing touch my face, not even the pil low. I had to lie on the back of the head. I was always glad when morn ing came so I could get up. It was extremely painful. “At last I thought of Cuticura Soap and Ointment and I commenced using them. It took three weeks to com plete the cure.” (Signed) Miss Caro line Miller, Apr. 30, 1913. Cuticura Soap arid Ointment sold throughout the world. Sample of each free,with 32-p. Skin Book. Address post card “Cuticura, Dept. L, Boston.” —Adv. ■ Deliberate Lie! In Mr. Arnold Haultain’s new biog raphy of Goldwin Smith there is a fun ny s’ ’he late dike of Cam bridge. It is pretty well known Unit in his old age his royal highness de veloped a habit of thinking aloud that was sometimes rather awkward for those near him. He was particularly inclined to this when in church, and it was quite a common thing to hear a gruff, loud comment issue from his pew when everybody else was silent. On one occasion he was present at the marriage of some princess or other to an inpecunious German prince of whom the duke apparently did not ap prove. The ceremony was proceeding smoothly, and the bridegroom repeat ed the words: “With all my worldly goods I thee endow.” Suddenly the duke rapped out: "Rubbish! Why, the boots he’s standing in ain’t paid for yet!” “Peace of Paris.” One hunldred years ago the nego tiations for the definite treaty of peace between France and the allies were practically concluded. Two days later the treaty, which is known in history as the Peace of Paris, was ratified by the powers. Tne king of Prussia and the emperors of Russia and Austria took part personally In the negotia tions, which Lord Castleroagh was pres ent as the representative of the Eng lish sovereign. The treaty of Paris did little more than ratify the peace following the abdication of Napoleon and provide for the restoration of the French frontiers to the limits of 1792. The great European questions as to the new formation of states lately con quered or dismembered by Napoleon, were mostly referred to the congress which was soon to meet in Vienna. A Nice Bab,. “I understand ihat you have a very fine new baby brother,” said the min ister “Yes, sir,” replied young Fercy. “He is a nice baby.” “And,” continued the minister, “I hope he is a good baby.” “Oh, I guess he is,” said Percy du biously. “He don't smoke or drink any, but sometimes he seems to me to swear some.” Never Had So Much. Norris—Can you, break a twenty for me? Nocoyne—lf I could I should break a record. —Boston Transcript Any insurance is good so long as it is not needed. DID THE WORK Grew Strong on Right Food. You can’t grow strong by merely ex ercising. You must have food —the kind you can digest and assimilate. Unless the food you eat is digested it adds to the burden the digestive or gans have naturally to carry. This often means a nervous breakdown. “About a year ago,” writes a Mass, lady, “I had quite a serious nervous breakdown caused, as I believed, by overwork and worry. 1 also suffered untold misery from dyspepsia. “First I gave up my position, then I tried to find a remedy for my troubles, , something that would make me well | and strong, something to rest my tired stomach and build up my worn-out I nerves and brain. “I tried one kind of medicine after another, but nothing seemed to help me. “Finally a friend suggested change of food and recommended Grape-Nuts. With little or no faith in It, I tried a package. That ws.g eight months ago and 1 have never been without it since. “Grape-Nuts did the work. It helped me grow strong and well. Grape-Nuts I put new life into me, built up my whole system and made another wom an of me!” Name given by Postam Cos., Battle Creek, Mich.
