Changs of Life
Owing to moderu methods of living, not one woman in a thousand approaches this perfectly natural change without è^peri encing a train of very annoying and sometimes painful symptoms. Those dreadful hot flashes, sending the blood surging to the heart until it seems ready, to burst, and the faint feeling that follows sometimes with chills, as if the heart were going to stop forever, are only a few of the symptoms of dangerous nervous trouble. The nerves are crying out for assistance. The cry should be heeded in time. I Lydia E.

He said if I lived to get through with the other trouble, it would wear away after a time, but I had it six years and could not walk orexercise in any way without bringing on an attack of the cramp, and I would suffer untold misery until I would be perfectly exhausted and helpless. " I read in one of your little books about your medicine being good for female trouble and change of life, and thought there was no harm in trying it, so I did, and it helped me and I was able to take walks and work some.

B utte , March 24. —Rumor reached town this afternoon that there had been some trouble in the Minnie Healy mine shaft, which was later given out from officials of the raine to have been the blowing up of the shaft by blast ing done in the workings ot the Leon ard mine, a B. & M. property. It was afterwards learned that the dam age was not so serious as at first re ported. Superintendent Adams, of the Bos ton & Montana properties, admitted that the intention of the blasting was to run water into the Minnie Healy shaft, saying, however, that it was merely water which had been pumped into the Leonard workings by the Minnie Healy people, being re turned. Inspector Barry stated that he had been called, inspected the scene of the blasting and could see no reason for even ordinary alarm, so far as danger to the miners is concerned, and on the question of right and wrong as be tween the two companies, he had no jurisdiction, and consequently had nothing to say. Mr. Barry saw officials of both mines and arranged a meeting be tween them which will be held tomor row in the rooms of the Silver Bow club, at which it is hoped a truce may be declared in the matter of flooding, which is alleged to have been the cause of today's scare. Self-Government for Philippines. Washington , March 24.— Mr. Taft, secretary of war, is contemplating a return to the Philippines after the election of President Roosevelt in No vember. The trip to be taken by the secretary of war will be of great im portance to the Filipinos, as it will mark the first step toward self-gov ernment for the islands. The Philippine law provides that two years after the completion and publication of the census of the Phil ippines, in case a general and com plete peace, with recognition of the authority of the United Slates shall have continued in the territory, out side of the Moro country, the presi dent may direct a general election in the Philippines for the choice of dele gates to a popular assembly of the people of the islands which shall be known as the Philippine assembly. The government of the Philippine islands will then be placed in charge of two houses, the Philippine assem bly, elected by the people, and the Philippine commission appointed by the president. Before this election can take place, however, the president must be satisfied that a proper con dition of peace has prevailed, and Secretary Taft-, by making a complete tour of inspection through the islands, will be in a position to report to the President whether or not all condi tions make it advisable to permit the Filipinos to participate in a legisla tive branch of government. England Is Making Enemies. New York , March 24.—Henry Nor man, member of parliament, under the title "The War and After," discusses in the forthcoming number of World's Work the probable effect of the Rus so-Japanese war. He says it is most importaut that one fact should be ciearlv realized—that "it is a fight for the control of China, Korea and Man churia and subordinate or indirect issues. The real object is predomi nant influence in Pekin, bringing with it the ultimate domination of the far east and in the future the headship of all the Asiatic races." Mr. Norman points out the probability of war in the near east, and England's peril from such an event, and says: "Already the flames of hostility to Eogland are visible almost every where in Europe—a manifestation which is not at all surprising in view of the language of 90 much of the Lon don press. From the highest to the lowest, moderation of language, re spect for the feelings of other nations and a sense of responsibility appear to have vanished from many news paper offices. Denunciation of Russia is as extravagant as adulation of Japan is exaggerated, and both are making England a host of fresh enem ies every week. Will Test Kcmarkablc Weapon. New York , March 24.— Within a ähort time the United States will test at Sandy Hook the latest, and it is believed the greatest, example of the development of big gunmakiug yet achieved. The gun is to be a wire wound 6-inch naval gun capable of throwing a projectile twenty five miles. In this country the wire-wound gun is still an experiment, but John Hamilton Brown, who i9 superintend ing the building of the gun to be test ed shortly, is convinced that all diffi culties have at last been overcome and that a gun has at last been produced which will meet all the requirements of modern powders. The wire wound gun was made necessary by the development of smokeless powder. A slow-burning powder such as is produced in the smokeless varieties, causes a much greater pressure throughout the entire length of tube than was formerly call ed for, and the many accidents in the navy have been caused by this defect. The wire-wound gun has been built to stand the pressure of the new powders, and it is claimed wili test up to 80,00U pounds for the (j-inch gun, which can not be called upon to stand a strain of more than'GO,000 pounds. Should this gun prove successful others will be built, and it is claimed that the ranges will be extended al most beyond the range of belief. For the 10-inch gun a range of fifty-nine miles is figured. Wholesale Bribery In Chicago Chicago , March 24.—Startling in clination on the alleged bribery of juries by Alexander Sullivan, in the interest of the Union Traction com pany, has been supplied in the disbar ment proceedings brought against Sullivan. James J Lynch, the former bailiff, was on the stand and was cross-1 examined by Lawyer H. T. Gilbert, i In reply to questions, Lynch said : | "There was a beaten path from the ciourt house to Sullivan's office, and I was as familiar with many of the com pany's affairs as if 1 were an employe. : Sullivan gave me money for bribing juries a number of times." Lynch de clared that he had bribed more than 100 jurors. "Did any of the jurors you ap- i proached refuse to do business'/" in quired Attorney Gilbert. "I only remember three who refused to go iDto the scheme," replied Lynch. Fine Book and Job Printing a spe cialtv at the River Press office Chicago May Lose Convention. Washington , March 24.— Unless Chicago citizens toe the mark finan cially to the satisfaction of the repub lican national committee within a very short time, the republican convention will not go to Chicago. Four or five of the leading members of the national committee are already in favor of tak ing the convention away from Chica go. A meeting of the national com mittee will probably be arranged by the end of next week, unless part of the guaranteed finances are put up by the Chicago citizens. The national committee refuses to go further until the subscribers come to the front and back up their original pledges by put ting up $15,000 or $20,000 for the use of the committee at at once. This is an ultimatum that must be met. Already several aspirants for the honor of entertaining the conven tion are becoming active again. Sen ator Scott directs the work of the na tional committee during the illnes of Postmaster General Payne, the chair man. If a meeting is held to change the place of holding the convention it will be at the call of Mr. Pavne. Proposed Changes In Land Laws. Washington , March 24.— In the house yesterday Representative Reed er of Kansas moved to reconsider the vote by which a bill introduced by himself had been taken from the com mittee on irrigation of arid lands and referred to the committee ou public lands. The bill, beside amending the irrigation act, repeals the timber and stone act, the desert act and the com mutation provision of the homestead act and transfers the forest reserva tions from the department of the in terior to the department of agriculture. The change referred to was without the knowledge of a majority of the mem bers of the irrigation committee, who favor the main features of the bill. A Riotous Republican Convention. Salem, 111., March 23.—A riot marked the gathering of the republi cans of Marion county here, during which the delegates charged upon each other with uplifted chairs. The chair man of the central committee had an nounced the temporary officers as selected by the central committee when the disorder started. More than 100 delegates sprang to their feet and began a general fight. The furniture in the courtroom where the convention was held was wrecked, and when it seemed imminent that there would be bloodshed Deputy Sheriff Sim Cox drew his revolver and restored order. liig Prairie Fire In Nebraska. Kansas City , March 23.—A special to the Times from Loomis, Neb., says: A prairie fire is raging through this portion of the state and already three deaths are reported, while a n uni bei' of farmers are missing. Houses and stock ruuning far toward 5100,000 have already been lost and the fire con tinues with unabated fury. The Bur lington road has sent a special engine with fire fighters from Holredge to as sist the ranchmen in saving the small! towns in the path of the flames. From Loomis to the Platte river, 15 miles, the whole country will undoubt edly be swept clear by the fire. Fur ther to the west, toward which the blaze is sweeping, the prairie country extends for nearly 200 miles. There are no streams of note alontr the coun try and the fire may sweep to the bend of the Platte river in this direction. No Modern Home Is Complete Without a Telephone.
