These centers become blood less for want of proper nutrition. This is especially true in the spring season. Every spring a host of invalids are produced as the direct result of weak nerves.

Then again, because Defiance Starch is.free from all injurious chem icals. .*f your grocer tries to sell you a 12-oz. package it is because he has a stock .on hand which he wishes to dispose of before he puts in Defiance.

ON STRANGER'S LAP SPINSTER RODE IN CROWDED ELEVATED TRAIN. Situation Enjoyed by the Ctner Pas sengers, but Decidedly Distasteful to the Principals-Fat Man Finally Succumbs to Fate. The elevated train was (,hock full when the very stout man got on at ] hirty-third street. There wasn't room Ietween platform and platformi lor a famine victim; but the stout man, like all stout men. didn't see how he could make any differcnlcc. He itpped upon the plalform buoyantly. mashing a messenger boy flat agaihnst the door and spreading a lemon-faced little spinster a!l over the Window like jam or burter. At Twenty- ig:hth street half a dozen people got out. Instantly t.here was a r'11h for scats and standing room left inside the car. But alas! when a fat man gets wedged in a doorway, who .lse can penetrate it? Again, like all fat men, the fat man was lucky, and, strange as it may appear, he managed to get one of the seats re cently vacated. When he had sat down the little spinster gathered herself together and foun:d a foothold in front of him, and the others, with some tnw passengers just taken on, 'crow(lded in after her and paclied lhemselves li'ke sardines. They w'ere squeezed so tight that the spinster reached for a strap to keep from being pushedl 'over on the fat man's head and shoulders. But just as she made a grasp somebody else .aught the only remaining strap. The bell rang sharply and the "'rain start ed with a jerk. The little spinster lost her breath and 'balance, toppiled for a moment on her toes and then sank struggling down upon the fat man's lap. The fat man gasped and the spinster gave an awfwl:! cry of con,~iernation and retched for the flour. But there was no floor' Every inch of space was rovered by the feet-of the determined passengers. The moment she sat down they ,had spread out over her space. Then she bIlushed. Some peo pie looked her way and laughdl, but nobody moved. She couldn't wedge her knees down from the altitude they had assumed at the first lurch. She continued to struggle and strain to reach a strap, while the fat man sat helpless with that energetic mite of femininity going through the jiu jitsu exercises on his knees. At the next station more people got on and the fight of the lone spinster became more difficult and desperate. Fleih and blood, even 300 pounds strong, could stand It no longer. iake a mountain rising and casting off the small cities on its surface, the ponder ous one rose and pushed the sardine like passengers out of his magic circle. The spinster slid off his knee like a drop Of water off a duck. "Madam," said the fat man, lifting his hat gravely, "will you do 'me the honor to 'take my seat?" "Well, it's about time!" snapped the ruffled little spinster ungratefully. New York Press. Their Favorite Food. Senator Berry of Arkansas 'tells of a happy old darky who came down the country road singing camp meeting hymns, when another old, woolly pated one stopped him and asked the reason for his happiness.

Mr. Hine ha4 collected a great mass, of children's examination papers, and had culled from them a number of amusing and quaint answers. "Now, here," said Mr. Hline, in the course of his address, "here is an. answer containing a good deal of un conscious truth-an answer that seems to me to hit the nail on the head. "The question refers to a famous town. 'What,' it runs, 'Is this town noted as?' "The answer is: 'It is noted as a watering place.' "'What is a watering place?' is the next question. "Answer: 'A place where people go to drink.'" Mark of the Aborigine. The red man has left an indelible mark upon the land over which he' formerly roamed as proprietor.

'To refute the many false and malici ous attacks. bogus formulas and other untruthful statements published concern ing Doctor Pierce's World-famed Family Medicines the Doctor has decided to pub lish all the ingredients entering into his "Favorite Prescription" for women and his equally popular tonic alterative known as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. Hereafter every bottle of these medicines leaving the great Labor atory at Buffalo, N. Y., will bear upon it a full list of,all the ingredients entering into the compound. Both are made en tirely from native roots, barks and herbs. The ingredients of the "Golden Med ical Discover'y" being (;olden Seal root, Queen's root, Black-chcrrybark, Man drake root. JBloodroot. Why is it so inany have been strength ened and benefited by the tonic effect of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical D)scovery ? It is because at this time of the year people feel .rundown, nerveless, sleepless and worn out. Poisons have accumu lated in their body during the long win ter. Their blood stores up a lot of waste product which poisons the system. That is why in the spring and early summer a tonic is almost a necessity. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery being made of medicianal plants, is next to nature and the best tonic you can use. For the same reason that vegetables and greens are good for the system at this time of the year, so is It true that a tonic made up entirely of medicinal plants, without the use of alcohol, is the proper medicine to take at this time. It fills the blood with rich, red blood corpuscles. It gives you a feeling of strength, and it puts sunshine into your system as no other remedy can. That is why D)r. Pierce's GolCr'n Medical Discovery has been such a favorite for the past forty years.

NBQAtiML IBOU CO., UCdamert l, Ai . PAINFUL PERIODS Suggestions How to Find Relief from Such Suffering. .. ' .*, ; issANe/lie Holmes A &/ll/ie Hart While no woman is entirely free from Vi periodical suffering, it does not seem to so be the plan of nature that women should suffer so severely. Menstrua- a tion is a severe strain on a woman's C vitality. If it is painful or irregular no something is wrong which should be fr set right or it will lead to a serious de- gr rangement of the whole female organ- ta ism. More than fifty thousand women b: have testified in grateful letters to Mrs. tl Pinkham that Lydia E. P'inkham's C' Vegetable Compound overcomes pain- r ful and irregular menstruation. It provides a safe and sure way of es cape from distressing and dangerous V weaknesses and diseases. The two following letters tell so con- W vincingly what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound will do for u women, they cannot fail to bring hope ti to thousands of sufferers. C Miss Nellie Holmes of 540 N. Davi- f sion Street, Buffalo, N. Y., writes: Dear Mrs. Pinkham: " Your medicine is indeed an ideal medicine for women. I suffered misery for years with painful periods, headaches. and hearing-down la pains. I consulted two different physicians Vf but failed to get any relief. A friend front tl the East advised me to try Lydia E. Pink- ai ham's Vegetable Co:npoun(L I did so, and v no longer suffer as I did before. My periods are natural: every ache and pain is gone, and my general health is much improved. I advise all wonen who suffer to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound." F Mrs. Tillie Hart, of Larimore, N. D., a writes: u Dear Mrs. Pinkham:- "I might have have been spared many months of suffering and pain had I only V known of the efficacy of Lydia E. Pinkham's isk Mrs. Pinkham's Advice-A Woman woman can be handsome who has Im purities in the blood, for it will show in pimples, boils, and eruptions, in the dark circles under the eyes and in the sallow complexion. After taking "Golden Med ical Discovery" you are bound to have pink cheeks and a fresh complexion. The muscles get the good, rich, red blood, that puts on strength. It is a flesh builder, but not a fat builder. As an example of the good results thus obtained, note the following lectter: "In the year 1S9.. I had an attack of indigestion and got so bad that my home doctor said he could not do me any good," writes Mr. G. 'T'rent, of Gordonville. Texas. "I wrote to you and you advised me to use 1)r. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. so I bought six bottles, and when I commenced using it I was so weak could hardly walk a bout the house. By the time I had used one Ibottle my stomach and bowels commenced to heal. There were strips of the lining of my bowels as large as a man's two lingers passed and I had a great deal of misery in my stomach and bowels, and also in the rectum especially. I could not eat anything without having much distress afterward, but by the time I had taken eight bottles of the 'Golden Medical Dis covery' I was sound and well, and could eat anything I pleased without suffering in the least. Could also do as much work in a day as I ever could. I have not suffered from the trouble since."
