Overstepping the Limit.
When Meredith P. Gentry was de

nessee by Andrew Johnson, afterward
president, he was much chagrined,
principally, he said, because he "had
been run over by that great calf," as
he contemptuously designated John
son. Gentry's melancholy over the re
suit of the election increased as time
passed and he went into a decline.
So sofne of his friends visited him
in order to cheer him up and, as was
the custom in those days, emptied
several demijohns of whisky during
the evening. It was very late before
they thought of retiring and then Gen
try announced that, as there was a
clergyqan present (Parson Brown

a prayer before the company went tc

Miss Hapgood tells how she was cured
of Fallopian and Ovarian Inflammation-.
and escaped an awful operation by using
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
"DEAR MRS. PI.s.AM :--I suffered for four years with what the
doctors called Salpingitis (inflammation of the fallopian tubes) and ova
ritis, which are most distressing and painful ailments, affecting all the
surrounding parts undermining the constitution, and sapping the life
forces. If you had seen me a year ago, before I began taking Lydia B.
Pinkham's Vegetable COdmpound, and had noticed the sunken eyes.

person with me as I am today, robust, hearty and well, you would not
wonder that I feel thankful to you and your wonderful mediche,
which restored me to new life and health in five months, and saved me
from an awful operation."--Miss I.Nxa H.ArooD, 1022 Sandwich St,
Ovaritis or inflammation of the ovaries or fallopian tubes which adjoin the
ovaries may result from sudden stopping of the monthly flow, from innamms -
tion of the womb, and many other causes. The slightest indication of trouble
with the ovaries, indicated by dull throbbing pain in the side, aocompanied
by heat and shooting pains, should claim your instant attention. It will let
cure itself, and a hospital operation, with all its terrors, may easily result from

my life, and I cannot express my gratitude to you in words.
" Before I wrote to you telling how I felt, I had doctored for over
two years steady and spent lots of money in medicine besides, but .it all
failed to do me any good. My menses did not appear in that time and
I suffered much pain. I would daily have
fainting spells, headache, backache and
bearing down pain, and was so weak that
it was hard for me to do my work.

as directed, and after taking three bottles
