for Women If you were offered sure aid in time of trouble would you put it asido and accept something of doubtful efficiency ? If you saw before you a strong and safe bridge leading to your goal, would you ignore it to try some insecure and tottering structure ? The answer to these questions is plain. Vou would, of course, choose without hesitation what all evidence showed to be the safe thing, und you would risk nothing in useless experi ments. Why. then, do some women risk one of their most precious possessions— their health—in trying medicines of unknown value, which may even prove hurtful to them.? Lydia K. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound has stood the test of years. It has the largest sale of any remedy for female ills in the world, and nothing could have given it this sale except its own merit. Do not try any experiments, but buy what is known to be reliable. Mrs. Pinkham's Compound can do all that is claimed for it, and all statements in regard to it can be easily verified. Write to Mrs. Pinkhain at Lynn. Mass., for a little book she has just published containing letters from the mayor of Lynn, the postmaster and others. Mrs. Pinkham's advice is offered free of charge to all women who write to her for aid. This invitation is con stantly renewed. A million women have been cured of serious female illsby Mrs. Pinkham's advice and medicine.

SOME POPULAR MISQUOTATIONS Here la a It'- nx List that Nearly All of lis Use* Unlike certain correspondents, I slmll not only point ont the most familiar misquotations, but give the correct version anil a reference to the work from which it is taken.

"Charity eovereth a multitude ot sins"—"Charity shall cover the multi tude of sins." (1 Peter 4: 8. Revised version, "Love eovereth a multitude of sins."

Society Asks that He liehave Well and Then His Palh Will Me M»ooth. Society asks little of a young man ex cept to behave well. If lie be manly In looks, u lie lias a good manner, is civil to Ills elders, if lie lias any little gift ol entertaining—any "parlor tricks"—if ht sends a few flowers occasionally, looks pleasant and is polite, his way will he smooth to success—always providing that he is really a gentleman. He never joins her on a thorough fare unless the friendship he an estab lished one and only with her permis sion—nor will he s'taud and converse witli her. It is provincial to walk''sandwiched" between two women, to stare, or look after any one who has passed. In puoiic conveyances a man does not pay a woman's fare uuless he is her escort, except in an emergency, when he must ask if lie may. Introductions are rarely made In pub tic places or conveyances. A man precedes a woman when en tering a theater or public place. In a church the lady goes tlrst. He may precede her up a public staircase, but In a private house In ascending and descending, lie follows. In picture-galleries, elevators, in pub- He buildings, hotel and theater corri dors, they being thoroughfares, a uian retains his hat. In a hotel lie removes it if women are present. If a lady bows to a man In a restau rant he rises slightly from his seat in acknowledgment. When lie is with a party. If a lady with her escort stops to speak to his friends he rises and re mains standing until she passes on. He also rises If a man Is Introduced to him when with a stag party. If a bachelor show some little hos pitality It advances him much in fa vor. If he has attractive rooms, or has anything to show, he may give an after noon tea or a cliatiug-dish supper. Sim plicity is in order. A bachtjor's enter tainment Is usually regarded in the light of a frolic aud his efTorts ludulg ently considered. A bachelor uiay live where he likes without loss of social position, if be be long to one good club, which he uiaj only use for the address on his cards and note-paper.—Ladles' Home Jour nal.

There la more Catarrh In this section of the country than nil other diseases put together, and until the lait few years was supposed to be incurable. For a great many years doctors pro nounced it a local disease, and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to core with local treatment, pronounced it incurable, Science has proven catarrh to bo a constitu tional disease, and therefore requires constitu tional treatment.
