TRY IT Women suffer ing from female troubles and weakness, and from irregular or painful men ses, ought not to lose hope if doctors cannot help them. Phy sicians are so busy with other diseases that they do not un derstand folly the peculiar ail ments and the te organism of woman. What e sufferer ought to do is to give a fair trial to a fair trial to which is the true cure provided by Nature for all female troubles. It is tbe formula of a physician of the habest standing, who devoted his wnole life to the study of the dis tinct ailments peculiar to our moth ers, wives and daughters. It is made of soothing, healing, strengthening herbs and vegetables, which have been provided by a kindly Nature to care irregularity in the menses, Leu oorrhoea.

THEIR INTERESTS IDENTICAL. FARMERS, WINNERS, AND THE AMERICAN COTTON CO. SHARE ROUNDLAT SAVINGS. Certain Southern papers are publishing articles designed to prejudice against the roundlap bale thoso who do not. know their origin or purpose. They are paid for by the square bale compress associations, whose interests is, not that the farmer's cotton shall be baled in the way that will bring him the most money, but that it shall be put up in btüvs that will havo to be compressed. The people of tho South are not to be caught with sueh chaff. The favor with which the Toundlap bale is re ceived wherever it has been introduced is due to its merit alone, and to tbe fact that the prodncor receives more money for his cotton in this form than in any other package. Ile will continue to use the roundlap bale so long as he finds it profit able, and no longer. The interests of tho farmer, the ginuer and the American Cotton Company are identical. The farmer has his cotton put in roundlap bales because the saving which accrue in their marketing enable tho buy er to pay him a premium sufficient to pay the baling charge and leave him a sub stantial profit besides. Much as congressmen would like to have farmers believe otherwise, the American Cotton Company has no purpose further than to 8ucure for itself a fair share of these savings. Its interest lies in en abling the presses which it builds to bale as much of the Southern cotton crop as possible. In order to insure this result it is essential that cotton growers find profit in the use of these presses, or they would not patronize them. To this end, and in order that the full savings of which round lap bales are capable might be realized, the American Cotton Company became a buyer of roundlap bales, paying for them a premium above the market value of square bales. Thus the rental whioh the company charges for tho use of its prestes by ginncrs who prefer lease to purchase, is paid by neither the farmer nor the gin ner, but by the cotton buyer (whether the American Cotton Company or some othoy and it is paid out of the savings. Beyond insuring that cotton in roundlap bales shall in all cases sell for the premium to which it is entitled and which is paid for it at the mills, the company does not go. Its cotton agreement does not require that a single bale of cotton he sold to the American Cotton Cofnpany. Ginncrs are free to buy or lease presses, and every roundlap bale, with all of its advantages, can be bought in open competition by any responsible buyer and handled through to tbe mills, with all of the resultant savings, but wherever the ordinary cotton buyer declines to purchase roundlap bales on this basis, the American Cotton Company stands pleged to buy them. The fanner who patronizes a roundlap gin plant may retain as complete control over bis cotton ovsr his cotton as if he took it to an old-style ginhouse. If he does not wish to sell bis cotton he can have it custom ginned and keep his round lap bales until such time as he is ready to dispose of them, with the assurance that they are always salable at the full market value of tbe eotton, plus an in creased price because it is in roundlap bales. If he likes be can arrange with the roundlap ginner to ship his cotton to the American Cotton Company to be held for bim and, under all ordinary circum stances. draw against it to 80 per cent, of its valne. The American Cotton Company has in this way largely assisted those who desired to hold tbeir eotton. It makes no commission charge for such business. To Cure Chitin and Fever.

For many days after the meeting of the Democratic National Convention at Kansas City the New York World seemed to bo in doubt as to whether it should give its sup port to the Democratic ticket. The master ly speech of Mr. Bryan at Indianapolis against, imperialism has brought the World in line with its party and it is now sup porting Bryan with the samo vigoi that it opposed him four years ago. The position taken by the World has caused thousands of gold Democrats who voted for McKinley in 1890 to announce their purpose to vote the democratic ticket this year. Com menting on the Liberty Congress, hold by the Anti-Imperialist League, the World says : "A self-governing people have no more imperntivo duty than to drivo from publie lifo a chief magistrate who, whether in weakness or of wicked purpose,lias used his temporary authority to subvort the char acter of their government and doHtroy their national idoals. t hat is they agToe with the Democrats that imperialism is "tho paramount issue" in this campaign. Thoy urge their fellow countrymen at least to withnold their votes from McKinley and to vote for Con gressmen pledged against imperialism. Thon they go on to say: Wo advise direct suppoit of Mr. Bryan as the most effective moans of crushing imperialism. We are convinced of Mr. Bryan's sincerity. His position and the declaration in tbe platform of his party on the vital issue of the campaign meet our unqualified approval." This courso was agreed upon with only a score of disenting votes. Few if any of the mon ill that congress* supported Mr. Bryan in 1R96. The most of them then opposed him vigorously. This indorsement is another and most significant indication that Mr. Bryan's noble and masterly speech of acceptance elevated him greatly in public estimation and improved his prospects. $100 Reward $IOO.

It is simply to suspend one or two dragon flies (we presume the artificial article would do) by a fine silk thread from the ceiling of the |>orch. It is a well known fact that dragon flies are predatory and voracious insects, and that thoy subsist largely upon gnots,madges and mosquitoes, and it is but natural that the mftquitto, whieh is a wise insect, should tegard his enemy as the small bird regards the hawk At all events the preventive is worth a The wolf in the fable put on sheep's clothing because if he traveled on his own reputation he couldn't accomplish his pur pose.

The startling discovery has been made that the bright prospects of Wharton Bar ker, middle-of-the-road Populist candidate for the presidency, have been nipped in the bud. Some years ago he was sujierin tending some improvements in Uussia and accepted a title from the Czar without the consent of Congress, and thus forfeited his American citizenship. So his vault ing ambition receives a fall. What a pity, and when, too, he had a dead sure thing.
