Pistols and Pestles.
The duelling pistol now occupies its proper
place, in the museum of the collector of relics
* of barbarism. ~'ho pistol ought to have beside
it the pestle that turned out pills like bullets,
to be shot like bullets at the target of the
liver. But the pestle is still in evidence, and
will be, probably, until everybody .has tested
the virtue of .Ayer'q sugar coated pills. They
trdit the liver as -a friend, not as an enemy.
Instead of driving it, they coax it. They are
compounded on the theory that the liver does
its work thoroughly and faithfully under
obstru6ting conditions, and if the obstructions
are removed, the liver will do its daily duty.
When your liver wants help, get "the pill
that will" .. .

Ba A Fight With a Grizzly. Cal

d. The people of the State of Washing- ste
all ton, who still have the grizzly bear on
with them, manage so well to keep out lot
ded of hand-to-hand struggles with that hi:
in formidable animal that such contests Ca
are teldom heard of except in fiction. th
and But-now and then some unwary settler sei
1a. comes in contact with the grizzly, with th
terrible results. The Wallawall o
L Statesman records such an experience an
on the part of Mr. John Doud, of s
nest Promised Land, in Wallawalla County. ca
Mr. Dond was hunting in Wallapa I
s- Canon when he ventured to fire hise T
self, only shot at a large grizzly, and was
ret immediately pursued by the animal,
c. one ot whose legs had been broken by ,
the shot.
SThe hunter ran but not so fast as e
the bear, notwithstanding the animal's a
crippled condition. Mr. Doud relied, t
• however, on the bear's broken leg to w
Smake the limb of a emall pine-tree ao
_r safe refuge for him, and perched him
i self on this with some confidence. The a
Se bear stood up on his hind legs beneath a
r. the little tree, and just at that moment t
my the branch broke, precipitating Mr.
r, Dond into the bear's extended paw*. h
te Then came a rough-and-tumble fight, o
S in which the chances seemed to be ,
altogether on the side of the bear. y
But a human being is a formidable
antagonist, after all. Mr. Doed sue
d.No ceeded in getting hold of his knife,
R 5AT and with a few happily directed blows h
reat- killed the bear.
a But it is possible that his knife- d
dren blows came too late. The hunter was
a so badly injured that he could not
move. He lay upon the ground by
e. I the bear's side until a searching party.
oe found him next day, badly torn and F
very far gone. Nevertheless, at the
moment of the Wallewalla paper's
Spubhcation hopes were entertained of
his recovery.
Pathetic War Story.

fidelity to truth rqated to a Lexing-i

pathetic incident of heroism which he
witnessed shortly after the battle at

"A son of my friend, Ion. Cassius

the battlefield to identify the body and 1

" Before using Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, my health was gradually being under.
mined. I suffered untold agony from painful
menstruation, backache, pain on top of my
head and ovarian trouble. I concluded to
Stry Mrs. Pinkham's Compound, and found
that it was all any woman needs who suffers
with painful monthly periods. It entirely
cured me. Mns. GEoRGIE WASs,
923 Bank St., Cincinnati, O.
For years I had suffered with painful men
struation every month. At the beginning of
menstruation it was impossible for me to
stand up for more than five minutes, I felt so mis
erable. One day a little book of Mrs. Pinkham's was
thrown into my house, and I sat right down and read it.
I then got some of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-,
pound and Liver Pills. I can heartily say that to-day I
feel like a new . woman; my rdonthly suffering is a thing
of the past. I shall always praise the Vegetable Compound
for what it has - done for me.
MaR. MABGAAET ANDERSON, 363 Lisbon St., LeAton, Me.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has cured me of painful men
struation and backache. The pain in myrback was dreadful, and the agony
I suffered during menstruation nearly drove me wild.
Now this is all over, thanks to Mrs. Pinkham's medicine and advine.-MBs.

From e Cowurer, Buffalo, P. Y.
Miss Lula Btevens, daughter of Geor.,
levens, the well-known blacksmith, of Ga s
port, Nlagar% Oounty, New York, ha sur
prised her neighbors considerably, by not
dying fil months ago, when the phkaeilanu
said she could not live.
This was quite a remarkable case. Th
young woman, who is very well known, on
account of her musical ability, had been a
very healthy girl, until about one year ago.
when she began to fail, and grew so pale
and apparently bloodless and so weak that
after a few months she was given up to die.
Last winter a physiolan woo was a visltor
at Gasport met Miss Stevens, and seeing het
emaciated condition, and hearing from the
local doctors that the disease was anaemia,
prevailed on the girl's mother to make het
try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Directly she
commenced the treatment she began to
mend, and now since February, when she
decided to take them, she has become well
and strong and the picture of good health.
Thmother of the gir), Mrs. Stevens, says:
"Every one in Gasport knows that P nk
PIlls cured Lulu, and I feel very thankful
that we heard of them in time to save my
child's life."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a con
densed form, all the elements necessary to
give new life and richness to the blood and
restore shattered nerves. They are also a
specifo for troubles peculiar to females,,
such as suppressions, irregularities and all.
forms of weakness. They build up the blood,.
and restore the glow of nealth to pale and
sallow cheeks. In men they affect a radical
cure in all cases arising fro;n mental worry,
overwork or excesses of whatever nature.
Pink Pills are sold in boxes (never in loose
I bulk) at 50 cents a box or six boxes for
S$2.50, and may be had of all draggists, or
