invitation to Women All the world knows of the wonder ful cures which have been made bj Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound, yet some women do not realty that all that is claimed for it is abso lutely true. If all suffering women could be made to believe that Mrs. Pinkham can do all she says she can, their suffering would be at an end, for they would at once profit by her advice and be eu red. There Is nomore puzzling thing than that women will suffer great pain month after month when every woman knows of some woman whom Mrs. Pinkham has helped, as the letters from grateful women are constantly being published at their own request. The same derangements which make painful or irregular période with dull backaches and headaches, and dragging-down sensations, presently develop into those serious inflamma tions of the feminine organs which completely wreck health. Mis. Pinkham invites women to write freely and confidentially to her about their health and get the benefit of her great experience with the suf ferings of women. No living person can advise you so well. No remedy in the world has the magnificent record of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound for absolute cures of female Ills.

Blake, Confluence, W. Va. fi dl Tute« Use UtemiWs Being i. ARTIFICIALITY IN WOMAN. j f tI „ . ~ . . , HE natural woman Is burning j a rarity, and In her place we have I her opposite, called the artificial roman. She is not artificial in a vul I ar way any more than the flowers she «rears on her bonnet aye great, glaring manufactured articles, but the bloom on her cheek, although daintily pink, does not come and go with the tide of the heart. Her deftly-arranged little curls do not bjow into pretty disorder with the wind, but remain decorously where she placed them with pins and veils before she left her dressing room. From head to foot she is a product of art, and she is not unpleaslng to look at, which she thinks is the great argu ment for her being, says the Pittsburg Press. But she Is as artificial within her inner self as she looks to the naked eye. The graceful flowing talk of the world Is not from her own hand but culled from books or conversation of others. This would be all right if she would think the same as they, but she does not, she cannot even understand the meaning of half that she says, any more than she eo.uld analyze the chem ical properties of the rouge on her cheeks, but It pleases the ear, just as she pleases the eye, therefore It goes on. How is this, girls? Is the bright, breezy American girl, whose chief charm has always been her kinship to that nature who has been so lavish In our country, only a sham? The cynic sn.vs so, and moreover, he maintains tl;at mankind thinks bo. If so, then the girls should cry a halt; for It Is on girl hood that the structure of womanhood, beautiful or disappointing, is built. Blouse and Sleeves. Though not boasting of any great originality, the blouse is such a pretty one. and one so easy of accomplish ment withal, that It Is sure to have a large following. The lining is cut square, so that the guipure yoke back and front is transparent, the silk being set into groups of tucks from It, the same ornamenting the sleeves, which are of the bishop persuasion. The flrst sleeve boasts an upper sleeve of accordion kilted chiffon or mousseline de sole, ending above the BLOUSE AND MODISH SLEEVES. elbow with a draped frill of lace to dls play the plain undersleeve. The second provides a good shirt sleeve thickly j gathered to below the elbow, .where. the fullness is fixed into tucks above the deep plain band. And the last gives a good specimen of the prevailing dou ble sleeve for walking dresses. Girl's Important Office. To Miss Grace Kennedy, a 20-year old Chicago girl, belongs the distinction of holding the office of Commissioner of the Court of Claims In Santa Fe, N. M. She is probably the only woman In the country who has held that position, and the age of the fair commissioner makes It more noteworthy. Miss Kennedy was graduated from one of the Chicago high schools and before going to New Mexico was em ployed as secretary in a large business bouse. The work was hard and she was kept constantly busy until her health failed. In the quest of health she moved to Santa Fe and became secretary In the offices of the Bureau of Immigration and later occupied the place of private secretary to T. B. Cat ron, ex-delegate to Congress. «f MISS KENNEDY. To Keep a Room Sweet. One may keep one's rooms sweet with the fragrance of violets all winter by setting little bowls of powdered orris root about in them. The orris root should be renewed once or twice a month, and the bowls washed when ever It Is changed, says the Minneap olis Times. Dainty Japanese bowls and quaint dishes and vases make the best receptacles, and It Is wise to cover them during the night to preserve the sweetness of the powder. By hanging sachets of orris root In the clothes presses one's garments will be given an evasive frgrance, unobjectionable even to those who adhere to the para dox that "a woman should smell only of the open." Household Cleanliness. Even in the ordinarily weil managed household, according to a physician, there Is little idea of the perfect clean liness that Is required In the sick-room. Old furniture, old paper on the walls, old carpets, are source« of impurity and consequently dangerous to a marked degree. Sometimes the wall paper, while L'Wh and new la Itself, has bees put on over an old layer, thus piwvldtag an economical resort for germ».

These should be washed and dried in the open air as religiously as If they were napkins or tablecloths. A dish rag or cloth that does service day after day and Is sim ply rinsed out after'dishwashing and hung up in the house till after the next meal Is not safe. The good housekeeper rotates the dish cloths as well as the drying towels. M-de a Fortune. Worthy to be classed among women of achlevemeut is this little Syrian girl, Boste Abdity, who Is Just returning to her own country with a fortune large enough to keep her people In luxury the balance of their lives, and every penny of It earned upon the Pacific coast. She ran away from home and went to San Francisco five years ago. At flrst she sold MI8S ABDITT - jewelry, notions and trinkets from do« to door, and later she developed a keen Instinct for the safe investment of her earnings. At one time, learning that the soldiers, then awaiting transportation to the Philippines, were without funds, she went out to camp with $250, which she loaned in small sums to the soldiers on their verbal promise to pay with 100 per cent Interest. She did not lose a dollar- by the venture, and before the boys of the various regiments had left camp she had gained between $4,000 and $5,000 by loans, always without security, and by the sale of jewelry and various trinkets. Her family lives In Damascus. About the Hair. Hair is a living plant, but dirt Is not its proper soil. Keep It clean with soap and warm water, clean towels and quick drying, every two weeks. Bitter apples and rum—half pint rum to an ounce of the apples—Is a very stimulating tonic for weak hair. Singe It every two months; It Is far better than cutting. The women in the Indies have superb hair, and singe It often. Brushing makes the hair shine, and borax baths make It fluffy. Do not use borax too often or it will bleach and rot the hair. Never use dyes. If your hair has been "touched up" until the texture of the hair is like raveled rope, do not repeat the odious peroxide wash, but have It shampooed with good olive all soap. It needs good blood way beneath the growth. A good tonic is often needed to a truth. Therefore, It is very uinadvis able for several persons to use the same brushes. c f quinine, and will stimulate the growth. Scalp diseases are more corn mon than people know. The halT hides many unpleaslng proofs of this The New Century Mother. We give our daughters unto noble toil, As Roman mothers gave their sons to war. They wield nor sword, nor gun; no nation spoil; Yet their sweet conquest- may reach wide and far. 'Tis theirs earth's sad and broken hearts to bind; At their young touch earth's dear, dear hopes revive; The wandering sister they are quick to find; The erring brother's soul they save alive. The little children, led by their soft hands. Climb heights of service—tho' by flow ery ways.

It promptly made headway for house dresses, and now it Is appealing In street gowns with Indorsement that promises equally ready acceptance of It there. Street dresses of summery types are made with Uttle square yokes cut out the neck showing bare. Tbe throat Is relieved sometimes by being tied around with several bands of nar row velvet. To Clean Fine Lace. Often lace has lost Its freshness, but yet Is not Sufficiently soiled to require washing. It Is then a good plan to lay It by for a week In tissue paper, under the pressure of a heavy book or other weight, having flrst well covered the soiled parts with calcined magnesia. After shaking out the powtjer the lace will appear quite fresh and clean once more. How to Keep Vlo'eta Freeh, A bouquet of violets may be kept crisp and fresh for several days with a little care.
