How many wo men realize that the most critical period in a wo man's existence is the change of ! life, and that the anxiety ffclt by Women os tins time draws near is not without reason ? If her system is in a deranged condi tion, or she is predisposed to apoplexy or congestion of any organ, it is at this time likely to become active and, with a host of nervous irritations, make life a burden. .At this time, also, cancers and tumors are more liable to begin their destruc tive work.. Such warning symptoms as a sense of suffocation, hot dashes, diz ziness, headache, dread of impending evil, sounds in the ears, timidity, pal pitation of the heart, sparks beforo the eyes, irregularities, constipation, variable appetite, weakness and inqui etude are promptly heeded by intelli gent women who are approaching the period of life when woman's great change may be expected. Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Com pound is the world's greatest remedy for women at this trying period, and may be relied upon to overcome all dis tressing symptoms and carry them safely through to a healthy and happy old ago. Lydia. E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Com pound invigorates and strengthens the female organism, and builds up the weakened nervous system as no other medicine can. Mrs A. E. G. Hyland, of Cliester town, Md., in a letter to Mrs. Pink Vtom cove • —. Dear Mrs. Pinkbam:— “I had been suffering with falling of Iho womb for years and was passing through the change of life. My womb was badly swollen. I had a good deal of soreness, dizzy spells, headaches, and was very nervous. I wrote you for advice and commenced treatment with Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Com pound as you directed, and I am happy to say that all those distressing symptoms left me, and I bavo passed safely through the change of life a well woman.” For special advice regarding this im portant period women are invited to write to Mrs. Pinkbam for advice. It is free and always helpful. "something about salt! Salt is used all over the world much in the same way as water, apimals and human beings alike craving for it. In some parts of Africa children will eat it in preference to sugar and on tho Gold Coast a handful of salt will pur chase two slaves. The Germans call salt “the gift of God,” and used to believe that prayers were better answered when offered near salt. In the east salt is considered sa cred; all oaths taken ever it are inviol able, and when an Arab offers salt to h guest he guarantees his safety. STRENGTHEN THE STOMACH Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills Really Cura Indigestion Instead of Merely Relieving Symptoms. There are plenty of remedies by which you can relieve for the time heartburn, pain and gas on the stomach and can smother nervous seusations and induce artificial sleep. You can humor your stomach by giving it predigested food. But when you take your next meal all your trouble begins afresh. There is only one sensible thing to do. Strengthen the stomach and do away with the necessity for drugs and arti ficial foods. The best remedy ever found for this purpose is the one that was used by E. E. Strong, of Capleville, Shelby county, Teun. “For years,” he states, “I suffered greatly from indigestion. I tried many different Remedies and some of them would relieve me for a time, but the trouble always came back. About six months ago I had an unusually sevbre attack, and while I tried everything I had ever heard of, I found that none of the ordinary remedies would reach the difficulty this time. “ One day I rend in a Memphis paper how Dr. Williams’Pink Pills bad cured a 1 Michigan woman, a sufferer from chronic ! dyspepsia of a most stubborn type. I j then tried the same remedy and it proved just as successful in my case. I j took ouly three boxes, and was cured. I j have not bad the slightest symptoms of i indigestion since.” The tonic treatment has a sound priu- j ciple as its basis, and abundant success in j act ual use. Multitudes of cases that had defied all other remedies have been cured by Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills. The pills actually make new blood and strike at the root of all diseases caused by bad blood. They contain no harmful stimulants or opiates. Every dyspeptic should rend, ’• What to Eat and How to Eat.” Write the Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Schenec tady, N.Y., for a free copy. !

' The repulsive action of light is shown in a very pretty experiment. An hour glass shaped glass vessel is filled with very fine and light lycopodium spore and the air is then pumped out to as high a vacuum as is practicable. The spore falls down through the orifice of this hour-glass in the usual way. As the light dust jet falls an intense beam of light focussed on it just below the hole spreads it. out into a spray, the lighter particles being repelled most. On com paratively heavy material, like sand, the light beam could have no effect. CURRENT CURIOa At Culross abbey, In Fife, Scotland, a tombstone has been found which is believed to date from the fourth cen tury of the Christian era. A partridge shot by a sportsman in a field near Bainbridge, England, the other day, dropped into the smokestack of a passing locomotive and was lest. Bishop Mora, of Hidalgo, Mexico, re cently celebrated mass 1,600 feet below the earth’s surface, at the bottom of a silver mine which has been worked for centuries. ‘T might as well be dead as alive, for l have nothing to live for,” said an un known tramp to another tramp whom ho had met a few minutes before on the road near Leigh. England. ‘‘Don’t say that, mate.” replied the other. At that moment a bolt of lightning killed the first speaker. When a Dover (N. H.) man finished painting his pole beans, he left the bag containing the left-ov$r seed in the grass beside a tree. He found the bag the other day firmly rooted to the ground. The bottom layer of beans had sprouted, and the roots embedded them selves in the turf. “I was walking across a field with my dog at my side when a young rabbit emerged from a wood close by,” says a writer. “Suddenly it fell to the ground and was to all intents dead. The dog sniffed it and I watched it for about ten minutes, thinking it absolutely dead. ] talked away about 60 yards, when I ooked back and saw the rabbit rise and run rapidly into the wood whence it came. It Is evident that it saw tlje dog and dropped down out of fright.” ODD FACTS ABOUT GOLD. Few people know the real color of gold, because it is seldom seen ex cept when heavily alloyed, which makes it much redder than when it is pure. The purest coins ever made were the 350 pieces which once were in common use in California. Their coinage was abandoned because the loss by abrasion was so great and be cause their interior could be bored out and filled with lead. ' They were oc tagonal in shape, and were the most valuable coins ever minted and cir culated. All_go!d is not alike when refined. Australian gold is distinctly redder than that taken in California. More over, placer gold is more yellow than that which is taken rfom quartz. This is one of the mysteries of metallurgy, because the gold in placers comes from that which Is in quartz. The gold in the Ural mountains Is the red dest in the world. THE SECRET OF YOUTH. De Soto looked for the secret of youth in a spring of gushing, life giving waters', which he was sure he would find in tho New World. Al chemists and sages (thousands of them), have spent their lives in qnost for It, but It Is only found by those happy people who can digest and as similate the right food which keeps the physical body perfect that peace and comfort are the sure results. A remarkable man of 94 says: “For many long years I suffered more or less with chronic costiveness and painful Indigestion. This condition made life a great burden to me, as you may well imagine. “Two years ago I began to use Crape-Nuts as food, and am thankful that I did. It has been a blessing to me in every way. I first noticed that It had restored my digestion. This was a great gain but was nothing to compare in Importance with the fact that In a short time my bowels were restored to free and normal action. “The cure seemed to be complete; for two years I have had none of the old trouble.
