I Mrs. Hughson, of Chicago, whose |
letter follows, is another woman in high
position who owes her health to the use of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound*
Dear Mrs. Pinkham: —I suffered for several years with general
weakness and bearing-down pains, caused by womb trouble. My appe
tite was fitful, and I would lie awake for hours, and could not sleep,
until I seemed more weary in the morning than when I retired. After
reading one of your advertisements I decided to try the merits of Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and I am so glad I did. No one
can describe the good it did me. I took three bottles faithfully, and
besides building up my general health, it drove all disease and poison
out of my body, and made me feel as spry and active as a young girl.
Mrs. Pinkham's medicines are certainly all they are claimed to be." —
Mrs. M. E. Hughson, 347 East Ohio St., Chicago, ILL
Mrs. Pinkham Tells How Ordinary Tasks Produce Displacements.
Apparently trilling incidents in woman's daily life frequently produce
displacements of the womb. A slip on the stairs, lifting during menstruation,
standing at a counter, running a sewing machine, or attending to thé most
ordinary tasks may result in displacement, and a train of serious evils is started.
The first indication of such trouble should be the signal for quick action.
Don't let the condition become chronic through neglect or a mistaken idea
that you can overcome it by exercise or leaving it alone.
More than a million women have regained health by the use of Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
If the slightest trouble appears which you do not understand
write to Mrs. Pinkham, at Lynn, Mass., for her advice, and a few
timely words from her will show you the right thing to do. This
advice costs you nothing, but it may mean life or happiness or both.

Mrs. Lelah Stowell, 177 Wellington
St.» Kingston, Ont., writes:
"Dear Mrs. Pinkham: — You are indeed a
godsend to women, and if they all knew what
could do for them, there would be no need
dragging out miserable lives in agony, _
I suffered for years with bearing-down pains,
é? womb troublé, nervousness, and excruciating head
f ache, but a few bottles of Lydia E. Pinkliam's
x-v. Vegetable Compound made life look
new and promising to me. I am light and
il \ happy, and I do not know what sickness
jy 1 I i-s, and I now enjoy the best qf health."
~ f Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound can always be relied upon to restore
health to women who thus suffer. It is a sovereign cure for
the worst forms of female complaints, that bearing-down feeling, weak
hack, falling and displacement of the womb, inflammation of the ovaries, and
all troubles of the uterus or womb. It dissolves and expels tumors from the
uterus in the early stage of development, and checks any tendency to cancer
ous humors. It subdues excitability, nervous prostration, and tones up the
entire female system. Its record of cures is the greatest in the world, and
should be relied upon with confidence.
FORFEIT if we cannot forthwith produce the original letter* and ilgnatarea at
above testimonial», which will prove their absolute genuineness. -

WATER IN DESERT CACTUS.
Natives Are Accustomed to Tap Plant
When They Are Thirsty.
The marvelous strength of desert
plants Is well known, but we are at
loss to explain the source or rea
sons of their luxuriance In regions
where only a few Inches of water fall
during the year, and that little is Im
mediately drunk up by the torrid sun. i
What enables the yucca to thrust Its 1
head through thirty feet of gypsum
and sand or the barrel cactus to store
enormous quantities of water and to
hold the water for months, perhaps
years, or the sumach to cling so ten
aciously to Its ground when every
thing else is swept away, are ques
tions which none can satisfactorily an
pllcable Is the mesqulte shrub, which
sometimes has roots over fifty feet
long, and other desert plants whoso }
hairy coverings and resinous coatings
prevent the evaporation of moisture.
These secrets may soon he discovered,
however, as the Carnegie Institution
has established a desert botanical lab
No less marvelous and Inex
oratory at Tucson to study them.
It was among the desert hills west
of Torres, Mex. The Indian cut the
top from a plant about five feet high
and with a blunt stake of polo verde
pounded to a pulp the upper six or
eight Inches of white flesh In the
standing trunk. From this, handful
by handful, he squeezed the water Into
the bowl he had made In the top of
the trunk, throwing the discarded pulp
on the ground. By this process he
secured two or three quarts of clear
water, slightly salty and slightly bitter
to the taste, but of far better quality
than some of the water a desert trav
eler Is occasionally compelled to use.
The Papago, dipping this water up In
hls hands, drank it with evident pleas
ure and said that hls people were ac
customed, not only to secure their
drinking water In this way In times
of extreme drouth, but that they used
it also to mix their meal preparatory

Fitting: Retort of "Mad Poet" to on
Uiueentlemanl y Remark.
Many stories are told of McDonald
Clarke, known fifty years ago In New
York as the "mad poet," which show
that he had a vein of great shrewd
ness, such as is often possessed by
people who are counted insane.
One day be was seated at a table
In a New York hotel quietly eating
bis simple dinner when two young
men took their seats at the same table.
McDonald Clarke was a well-known
figure, and the young men at once
recognized him, though be did not
They were not gentlemen In the best
sense of the word, and It occurred
to them that they might have some
sport with the poor poet. Conse
quently one of them said In an un
necessarily clear tone:
"I have seen almost everything and
everybody in New York except Mc
Donald Clarke. I have a great ad
mirations for his poems, and I would
give a great deal to see the man."
When he passed the mad poet
leaned forward and said with evident
"Sir, I am McDonald Clarke, whom
you say you wish to see."
The young man stared at him with
much rudeness for a moment, und
then drawing a quarter from hls
pocket, he laid it on the poet's plate,
saying, "That's for the sight!"
Clarke looked at the coin for an In
stant, and then placing it in his pocket,
he took out a "York shilling," 12V&
cents. This he handed to the young
man, saying gravely, "Children half

According to a report of the geo
logical survey of the United States
government, now nearly ready for
publication, petroleum was first dis
covered by Colonel Drake less than
half a century ago in Pennsylvania
near Titusville. Men in those days
had no notion that petroleum was
among the necessities of existence.
A tallow dip or a wax candle illumin
ated sufficiently the night's activities,
and a blazing log wood fire left no
room for desire for another kind of
heater. Petroleum might have been
counted a superfluity, but Instead it
sprang Into Immediate favor, and now
its list of popular byproducts grows
longer every year.
The total production of crude petrol
eum from 1859 to the end of 1002 has
been no less than 1.165,280,727 barrels.
That means that If two and one-half
feet were allowed for the height of a
barrel, and If these barrels filled with
all the domestic oil that has been pro
duced were laid so that their heads
touched they would encircle the earth
two and one-qnarter times.
Of this total Pennsylvania and New
York produced 53.9 per cent; Ohio, 24.3
per cent; West Virginia, 11.3 per cent;
Indiana, 8.9 per cent; California, 8.0
per cent; Texas, 2.1 per cent, leaving
.9 per cent to be supplied by the States
of Kansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Illi
nois, Missouri, Indian Territory,
Wyoming, Michigan and Oklahoma. H

ppear upon the skin; the stomach fails to properly digest the food,
and there are frequent headaches, dizziness, bad taste in the mouth,
constipation and a general worn-out, tired feeling that only a sufferer
from Malat ia can describe. Other and more dangerous symptoms
are .apt to follow where this diseuse is neglected, sucli as nervous pros
tration, palpitation, sleeplessness, enlarged liver, weak kidneys, boils
and risings and dangerous-looking sores and abscesses. Malaria 'is all
the more dangerous because of its insidious and stealthy nature. It is
an invisible atmospheric poison, and the germs and microbes that are
lodged in the blood are propagating and increasing in number all the
while, clogging the circulation and gradually wrecking the health.
What is needed in Malarial troubles is
a blood purifier and tonic. S. S. S. purifies
the germ-infected blood, tones up the stom
ach, improves the appetite and invigorates
the entire system. It stimulates the torpid,
sluggish organs of the body, enabling them
to properly perform their functions and
carry off the poisonous secretions and health-destroying matter that have
been polluting the blood and clogging the circulation,
tains no strong minerals, but is strictly a vegetable remedy, a blood
purifier without an equal, and the greatest of all tonics. If you have
any symptoms of Malaria, write us, and medical advice will be fur
