AND A WOMAN’S WORK
Nature and a woman’s work com
bined have produced the grandest |
remedy for woman’s ills that the
world has ever known.
In the good old-fashioned days of
our grandmothers they relied upon
the roots and herbs of the field to
cure disease and mitigate suffering.
The Indians on our Western
Plains to-day can produce roots and
herbs for every ailment, and cure
diseases that baffle the most skilled
physicians who have spent years in
the study of drugs.
From the roots and herbs of the
field Lydia E. Pinkham more than
thirty years ago gave to the women
of the world a remedy for their pe
culiar ills, more potent and effica
cious than any combination of drugs.
Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable
Compound is now recognized as the
standard remedy for woman’s ills.
Mrs. Bertha Muff, of 616 N.C. St,
Louisiana, Mo., writes:
“ Complete restoration to health
means so much to me that for the sake
of other suffering women I am willing
to make my troubles public.
“For twelve years I had been suffer
ing with the worst forms of female ills.
During that time I had eleven different
physicians without help. No tongue
can tell what I suffered, and at times I
could hardly walk. About two years
ago I wrote Mrs. Pinkham for advice.
I followed it, and can truly say that
Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Com
pound and Mrs. Pinkham’s advice re
stored health and strength. It is
worth mountains of gold to suffering
What Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vege
table Compound did for Mrs. Muff,
it will do for other suffering women.
AND SHE BELIEVED HIM.

TWO CURES OF ECZEMA

David Belasco, the playwright and

Two men were conversing. “Did you

Laundry work at home would be
much more satisfactory if the right
Starch were used. In order to get the
desired stiffness, it is usually neces
sary to use so much starch that the
beauty and fineness of the fabric is
hidden behind a paste of varying
thickness, which not only destroys the
appearance, but also affects the wear
ing quality of the goods. This trou
ble can be entirely overcome by using
Defiance Starch, as it can be applied
much more thinly because of its great
er strength than other makes.

BLAMED ON THE RAILROAD.
First Thought in Irishman’s Mind Af
ter the Accident.
Railroad claim-agents have little
faith in their fellow creatures. One
said recently: ‘‘Every time I settle a
claim with one of these hard-headed
rural residents who wants the rail
rond to pay twice what ho would
charge the butcher if he gets a sheep
killed. I think of this story, illustra
tive of the way some people want to
hold the railroad rcnponslblo for
every accident, of whatever kind, that
happens. Two Irishmen were driving
home from town one night when their
buggy ran into a ditch, overturned,
and they were both stunned. When a
rescuer came along and revived them,
the first thing one of them said was:
‘Where’s the train?’ ’Why. there’s no
train around,’ he was told. 'Then
where's the railroad?’ 'The nearest
railroad is three miles away,’ he
learned. ‘Well, well.' he commented.
‘I knew It lilt us pretty hard, but I
didn't suppose it knocked us three
miles from tho track.’"

A man running on a railroad has to
be in good condition all the time or he
is liable to do harm to himself and
A clear head is necessary to run a
locomotive or conduct a train. Even
a railroad man's appetite and diges
tion are matters of importance, as the
clear brain and steady hand result
from the healthy appetite followed by
the proper digestion of food.
"For the past five years," writes a
railroader, "I have been constantly
troubled with Indigestion. Every doc
tor I consulted seemed to want to
starve me to death. First 1 was diet
ed on warm water and toast until 1
was almost starved; then, when they
would let me eat, the indigestion
would be right back again.
"Only temporary relief came f r om
remedies, and I tried about all of them

ago a friend advised me to try Grape-
Nuts food. The very first day 1 no

which had not been the case before,

"In a week, I believe, I had more
energy than ever before in my life. I
have gained seven pounds and have
not had a touch of indigestion since
I have been eating Grape-Nuts. When
my wife saw bow much good this food
was doing me she thought she would

Western Live Stock Exposition.
Denver.—*Vtlh a premium nnd prize
list aggregating over $8,500, and with
a larger list of entries of fine blooded
stock than was ever gathered together
west of Chicago, the Western Live
Stock Exposition will open Its gates
to the public January 20th. All ar
rangements for the big show have
been completed practically.
The management of the stock show
Is going to take no chances with the
weather this year. In previous years
there has been some complaint made
that there was no proper place in
which to exhibit the horses, the cat
tle, the hogs and the sheep. When
the weather tinned bad during the
show there was cause for this com
plaint. This year, however, a spacious
pavilion, capable of seating between
2,000 and 2,000 persons has been
erected at the stock yards. A big cir
cle of seats built In tiers surrounds
the show ring. The pavilion is cov
ered and besides Is heated by steam,
so that, no mutter what the weather,
spectators will be as comfortably
housed as though they were seated
in an opera house.
The active management of the stock
show this year is in the hands of Col
onel W. K. Skinner, who was for a
number of years at the head of the In
ternational live stock exposition in
Chicago nnd who built it up Into the
greatest live stock show In the world.

The Starfish Analyzed
The starfish, one of the lowest forma
of life, has on its back about 25.000
jaws or hands arranged in rings and
bands. By the aid of these it cap
tures many animals for food, even
quick, active fish of considerable size.
Prof. Jennings of Johns Hopkins hue
photographed the starfish at dinner,
and has discovered that even thia low
form of animal life has "habits.”
