PAINS SO BAD WOULD GOTO BED Two Women Tell How Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound Stopped Tfceir Suffering 1 1 . Iron Mountain. Mich. "I had terri ble pains every month and at times had to go to bed on ac count of them. I saw your advertisement and took Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegeta ble Compound with very good results. I can work all day long now at my sick time. irou may use these facts as a testimonial and I am recom mending the Vege table Compound to my friends." Mrs. A. II. Garland, 218 E. Brown St., Iron Mountain, Michigan. Xenia, Ohio. "Every month I had Buch pains in my back and lower part of my abdomen that I could not lis quietly in bed. I suffered for about five years that way and I was not regular either. I read an advertisement of what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound had done for other women, so I decided to trf it. It surely has helped me a lot, as I have no pains now and am regular and feeling fine. " Mrs. Mary Dale, Eoute 7, Xenia, Ohio. Lydia E. Pmkharn's Vegetable Com pound is a medicine for women's ail ments. It isespecially adapted to relieve women. If you suffer as did Mrs. Gar land or Mrs. Dale, you should give this well-known medicine a thorough trial.

OCTOBER 14, 1922. j A BETTER WORLD. j To a good many people who liave been J following the progress of psychic re- seauu in tiie last few years, one great reason for skenticism tha l-wt- f ;m rortance of the messages received i . -' " a. iu recei .Never, these people say, has anything really useful come from beyond the veil; never anything which could not have been produced in or by minds still func tioning on this side. There are, however, for all who read, communications at hand everywhere from a better world than we are accustomed to find around us. This is the world where every school is perfect, "just the school for your child," where every book is the best and most interesting and most original of the year. It is the world where romance flourishes "South f the Line" and for adventure "The una. leopard lias Broken Loose," where efficiency is acquired in "Fifteen Minutes a Day" where "A Big Raise in Salary is Easy to Get," where "We pay him $100 a week" and his brother com pleted a high school course in two years. It is the world where one bank combines fh(j wisdom of age with the vigor of youth and another has never lost an in vestment, where cars are trusted the wide world over, where teeth you envy are brushed this new way, where all the floors are of wood eternal, except those covered with the most beautiful and everlasting linoleums, where all the homes are of enduring satisfaction and all the hardware combines the practical and artistic. It is. the world where when it comes to furniture and draperies and hams and canned pineapple words fair us, though they never seem to fail the advertising Avriters. What a gay, colorful, entertaining world that of the advertising pages has come to be! What a vacation it is to stroll through its domains! Here is a world of joy, of beauty, of lasting comfort. Whether one can afr ford to buy those lovely things is not the question. The poorer one is, the more pleasant to know they are in exist ence somewhere. The psychic effects are restful, rather than enervating and dis rupting as those of the seance room are apt to be. And there is always the chance that the glowing tales are not too good to be true. THE WOMAN SENATOR. The appointment of a woman to the United States senate, to fill the unex pired term of the late Senator Watson, seems a matter of chivalry rather than politics. . , The governor of Georgia is said to have offered the appointment first to the widow of Senator Watson, thereby set ting a precedent that will be heard from many a time hereafter. That in itself was a graceful acknowledgement of the equal rights of women in the new age. On her refusal to accept the honor, it was given to Mrs. W. II. Felton, the "grand old lady of Georgia," who is credited with half a century of useful public vork And this in a state which has been thought of as opposed to woman suffrage and all its works. It may be granted that the appoint ment is, in effect, little more than a gra cious compliment, because the new sen ator is 87 years of age and because a successor to her will be chosen in due form in the November election. Never theless, while her brief tenure lasts, she will be a veritable senator, with all the dignity and power that belongs to that high office, and she will stand in history forever as the first woman ever to sit in the senate chamber of the United States, Perhaps it may be added without in delicacy that in personal conduct, at least, the new senator may be expected to reflect more credit on the fine old state , she conies from than her immediate pre tlecesor nas one- A women im prove notning on uapitol Jim except the manners of our statesmen, they will have accomplished something worth while. FOREIGN CO-OPERATION. "We believe," declared the American Rankers' association in convention at New York, "that the time has come for the government of our country to formu late the principles on which it will be able to co-operate with other nations to bring about the needed rehabilitation of European countries and peace in the world." It is no small thing to have this delib erate statement from such a body of men. It is given as the almost unanimous opin ion of American bankers. And bankers are usually regarded as speaking, more fully than any other class of business men can do, for the nation's business interests. There are many intimations that this sentiment represents the dominant senti ment of the American public today. There are also suggestions that it repre sents the opinion of the government. There is recognition on all sides of the relation that foreign conditions bear to our own prosperity and future welfare and a growing disposition ,. to play as large a part as can properly be played in international affairs. This . purpose is primarily practical, intended for the protection of American interests. But it is also idealistic, be cause America can not participate in international councils without using her influence for measures beneficial to the rest of the world. ' American pickle manufacturers are looking sour. The pickle industry is hav ing the worst year in its history. The average consumption for 1922 is only 10 pickles per person. In normal it is 27 There are a good many reasons which might account for the situation. Food chemistry and house economics have come in for a deal of study lately, and in securing the greatest amount of nourishment for the least expense, the pickle, however delicious, plays but a small part. People eat more salads and green stuffs and fresh fruits, too, and that works against the more pungent relishes. Maybe, though there arc no figures at, hand to prove it, deflation has not reached the price of pickles as it should to create a popular'demand. May be, too, the industrial depression and the great strikes which left so many dinner buckets idle on the shelf affected the pickle market just as they did every other industry, and with returning prosperity the pickle will come into its own once more. Victor Herbert thinks there ought to ber . a national theatre and a national house for grand opera in this country, and he suggests Washington, D. C, as the proper place for them. Not at all convincing! Surely congress has enough to da in other fields without trying its hand at drama and opera. Thereare other purposes, too, to which public money might be devoted more profitably. It is highly desirable in any country to build up such institutions and make them national in character. But why should a nation so individualistic as ours, which Getting It From Both Parties i ihm-mHtUKi.',.--v insists so strongly on private enterprse in business, not be able to get along with out federal paternalism in art? i Somebody complains mat mki, me African champion, trains on whiskey. And remembering what Lincoln said about Gen. Grant, we can't help wonder ing why Carpentier's manager dosn t get some of the same brand for him. There's an excess temperature accum ulation so far this year of nearly 600 degrees.- And if the weather man doesn't mind, we'll let him apply that on the first half of the winter. Why noj apply liplomatic methods to cvery-day business? When a creditor presents a bill, tell him you accept it in principle and will take the matter under ; advisement. Radio1 campaigning may have its charm, but it can. never take the place of the old-fashioned Torch parade. A hoarded treasure in the cellar now may be either home-brew or coat. Enlarging School Districts. (Morrisville Messenger.) Consolidation of school districts for supervision purjwses ought to reduce the outlay for school superintendence quite materially and where it can be done without impairing the efficiency of the service it is greatly to lie commended. Of late the state education department has made a number of changes of this nature and these -changes are likely to be fol lowed by other consolidations in the more thinly populated regions of the state. Barre Times. It was only two short years ago when this paier, and others, joined with lead ing edjleators in the state, in advocating this very thing. - When the legislature, met there was a great fight over cutting down the num ber of superintendents to 14. or more, and giving each clerical assistance. The effort failed, but the board of education learned something. It found that the people were not sat isfied with the results for the money ex pended. The board noted the fact that it was on trial before the people of Vermont. That it must make good. It is doing so. It is trying to reduce districts and ex penses. It must, or walk the plank, as the Rutland Herald said, in substance, after the close of the legislature. And He Did! . , AND I HE DID- ) JIMMIE, I WMiT ) VOO TO TAKE I V.

Such is the fate of fellows who do not toil or spin, who ply no blacksmith's bellows, or make cars out of tin; in gilded ease reclining, their lot seems far from hard ; but when it comes to dining, all goodly things are barred. I watch the toiler plodding, as homeward he repairs, from ditching or from sodding, to eat five Belgian hares.. I think his lot's .a daisy, no doctors round him lurk; but I am too blamed lazy to go outdoors and work.

A column attack by the Burlington .sews on the state board of chanties and probations may or may not be justified but why should the News be out in the woods hunting chipmunks when there is real game to be found. 'The state board of charities and probations does a iot of good work in looking after unfortunate children." It also does some good but more damage in the matter of adult pro bations, but for this damage the courts and prosecuting officers are more re sponsible than the department of proba tions. As' to the cost, it looks moderate compared with the overhead expense in the departments' of education and high ways. It seems to be in these two de partments that the taxpayers' money is thrown away in the biggest chunks. K LITTLE BENNYS The Park Ave. News. Weather: Werse. Exter! Big Abduction !
