That Seem* the Only Explanation aa
to Why Fresh Nut» Are Never

"Whence do all the old nuts come,
and where do they go?" was the ques
tion put to a New York Times re
porter by a broker who had Just
turned from hla wml annul trip to
"On my many voyages across the At
lantic and in the eastern seas," tha
broker went on to say, "I have never

have discussed the problem were of
the opinion that the steamship com
panies had some big c.ave where all
Buts were stored for a few decades un
til they had aged.
"Capt. Pritchard, the retired com
modore of the Cunard line, once told
me that the Island of Tobago, where
Robinson Crusoe lived, was the clear
ing house for nuts, and the companies
sent them there ln sacks to be ex
changed after they had been afloat
for three years. This was corrobo
rated by Capt. Arthur P. Mills of tha
American liner Philadelphia, who said
that an old shipmate of his, Capt
Ben Brails, had carved his Initials on
a Brazil nut and put It back on the
dish while his ship was crossing the
North sea, and got the same nut on
another vessel four years later ln the
Btraits of Shtmenosekl, Japan. Thla
had auch an effect on the mind of
Skipper Brails that he marked all
kinds of nuts with his Initials and the
date and wrote letters to all his old
shipmates requesting them not to
track any of his marked nuts If they
met them on their voyagea."
Veteran stewards, when asked why
MJe companies do not put fresh nuts on
board their ships, say that perhaps the
tompanles are afraid they will dis
agree with the passengers.

Said the man: "There were about

"That one man," she said, "looked

Those hundred women," said he,
"didn't look a bit scared."

he got away as soon as he could."
There was no mistake about those
women being where they were," said
the man, "and they Btayed until they

The Change of Life is the most critical period of a

invites disease.
Women everywhere should remember that there is no
other remedy known to medicine that will so successfully
carry women through this trying period as Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, made from native roots
and herbs. Here is proof:
Natick, Mass.,—"I cannot express what I
went through during the Change of Life before
I tried Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com

could not keep still. My limbs were cold. I

I nights. I was finally told by two physicians
Si! that 1 had a tumor.
I read one day of the wonderful cures made
by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
and decided to try it, and it lias made me a well
woman. My neighbors and friends declare it
has worked a miracle for me. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound is worth its weight in gold for women during this
period of life. If it w r ill help others you may publish this
