The lofty character of the support given me robs defeat of its sting and elevates me above the plane of humiliation. In some places my action and my conduct have been misconstrued, misconceived and misrepresented. which some day, I trust, may be better under stood and then fairness may be accorded me. 1 think it an hon or and a privilege to represent in the legislature a constituency composed of such conservative, intelligent aud progressive citi zens as are the electors of this district. To my friends vvho have given me their support, I acknowledge a heartfelt obliga tion and owe a debt of gratitude that I can never discharge, but I shall ever be faithful and loyal and always prepared to respond to their calls upon me. I now retire without harboring ran cour, without cherishing bitter ness and without bearing malice towards any. S. S. Crawford. 1903. The Matinee Races.

Pinkiiam : I have never before given njy endorse ment for any medicine, but Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound has added so much to my life and happiness that I feel like making an exception in this case. For two years every month I would have two days 01 severe pain and could find no relief, but one day when visiting a friend I run across Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound, she had used it with the best results and advised me to try it. I found that it worked wonders with me ; I now experience no pain and only had to use a few bottles to bring about this wonderful change. I use it occasionally now when I am exceptionally tired or worn out." Miss Alice M. Smith, 804 Third Ave., South Minneapolis, Minn., Chair man Executive Committee Minneapolis Study Club. Beauty and strength in women vanish early in life because of monthly pain or some menstrual irregularity. Many suffer silently and see their best gifts fade away. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege table Compound helps women preserve roundness of form and freshness of face because it makes their entire female organism healthy. It carries women safely through the various natural crises and is the safeguard of woman's health. The truth about this great medicine is told in the letters from women being published in this paper constantly. Mrs. C. Kleinschrodt, great relief. f and sickly, discouraged with life and no hope for the future, when proof is so unmistakable that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound will cure monthly suffering all womb and ovarian troubles, and all the ills peculiar to women. $5000 ill I! In 1V1 t At trrwtnlala TV i ; r K ( 11 nrn...

The protracted meeting held at Border Springs by Rev. T. J. Watts, of Aberdeen, ended Sun day with a grand success for the glorious cause. The good work done by Rev. Watts, our beloved pastor. Rev. P. W. Cain, and a visiting brother, Rev. Stephens, of Aberdeen, will long be remem bered by the people of this plac Rev. Watts arrived Monday night bringing with him the "good tidings of great joy." He held the congregation in ierfect silence for the space of half an hour, delivering to it this great message which the shepherds who were abiding in the field keeping watch over their llock by night were so glad to hear. The series of sermons delivered were to the Christian people as well as to the unconverted, plead ing with them to reconsecrate their lives to God and live upou a higher plane of life and by so do ing their lives will be a light thrown upon the paths of the ungodly that they may see the way of eternal life. The messages to the ungodly were as ones from on high, pleading with them to seek the way of salvation with all their heart and by so doing they would be preparing themselves to meet their God in peace, whom we will all have to meet sooner or later. There were six bright souls brought to Christ and others manifested an interest in their soul 's salvation but did not see the way plain enough to join the hap py band of workers for Christ We all hope and pray that they mav realize that Jesus of Naza reth on Calvary's tree shed His dear blood to set their souls free and that he is still passing this way. The saddest scene ot all was the farewell hand shakes given and words spoken to Rev. Watts and Bro. Stephens. They re turned to their homes in Aber deen to begin a new work in their held, carrying with them many wishes of success and thanks for the good they did the people at Border Springs. August 14, 1903.
