The doctor said this was due to an inflamed condition of the uterine appendages caused by repeated and neglected colds. If younp girls only realized how dangorous it is to take cold at this critical tmie, much suffering would be spared them. Thank God. for Lydia E. Plnkliam'n Vegetable Compound, that was the only medioino which helped me any. Within three weeks after I started to take it, I noticed a marked improvement in my general health, nnd at the time of my next monthly period the pain ban diminished consider ably. I kept up the treatment, and was cured a month later. I am like anothor person since. I am in perfect health, my eyes are brighter, I have added 12 pounds to my weight, my color is good, and I feel light and happy." Miss AonksMim.rr, 25 Potomao Ave., Chicago, 111.

While th" weather .for the most part has liein warm the past week there has been iome trust and maple sugar or clinnls have- yielded t-onif- sap. It Is es timated that there will be from onc-quar-te r to onc-thlnl of an ordinary crop, and the difference to the farmers will pro bably amount to a lo?s of hundreds of tlioiisaiiils ot dollars. The unusually for ward spring lias Induced the beginning of active farming operations. Manufac tuters continue busy and prospects con tinue favorable- for a successful season. The lumbermen are- beginning to prepare logs for the annual drive down the Con-, ncvtle-iit River. The streams are much swollen because of the rain and warm I weather which melts tho snow on tho mountains nnd thu high water in Lake Cliamplnln is causing considerable an noyance In Iliirllnglon, but there will be no Ice blockade and the. actual dam ng" by high water will be comparltlvcly small. Labor is well employed aui' con tented except In a few Instances where the workmen have reeiuested concessions. Collections continue slow but there is no particular stringency among the mer chants or banks. I'ho unusually high water in Lake Ch.implain has interrupted operations -oinewbat with I ho lumber dealers in llurllngtein but the money loss will bu small. 'I he labor cpic-stlou is still tin settled but many are of the opinion that tin- labor organization will not call a Ptrike. Colk-i tiot.jf arc somewhat slow this be-lng practically the .only unfavor able feature aside trom the labor epics- tlem. The strike is still on at the brush factory. Itetail ti.ide Is good for the sea son of the year and the manufacture! s mil jobbbers are doing well. Montepller tcpotts business in general satlsfactoi y for the time of year. A new granite shed Is being erected; the large new church building which was commenced some years -igo Is about completed and nlll soon be ilediiateel. The furniture lac lory at lieecher Falls. Vt.. is employ ing a large force. The loggers are busy ettlng logs to the tlver. Island Tone! reports business lu general to be jjood The- railroad employs a large number of men and It is expected thai It will make large Improvements when the weather will permit. The shirt factory Is busy iii-l is an important factor in the local business community Plans are being made to erect a railroad Y. M. C. A. Building. The company which owns the e-lectric- light plant will soon be able to sec ure Its power from a newly constructed fall located In an adjoining township The casket company at Lunen- buig Is fairly busy; the maple sugar crop will be small. The paper mill at I-ltz dale has bee n completed and has begun to manufacture paper. The mill Is well ecpilpped: It has one set of paper mach ine i.v which makes paper 111 inches wldo for newspapers: the same plant manufac tures pulp. Business Is active at Si. Johnsbury the scale works being rushej with orders both in scale nnd valve de partments: other conditions arc satls f.utoiy there. Bellows Falls reports all the mills to be riinnlg full time at that place, collections very good. Bennington reports tlio Knitting mills fairly wol nc pled, retail trade and collections good. It Is thought that a fair crop of maplo sugar win be secured from tills section. Business continues good at Brattleboro: the organ factory and other Industries are busy, collections fair. Conditions are normal nt Ilnrre: the weather has bean favorable for iiuarrylng and In consco uence the stone sheds can secure stock more promptly, retnll trade Is satlsfac tory.
