THE ILLS OF WOMEN
And How Mrs. Pinkham Ifelps
Overcome Them.
Mrs. Mart Bollinger, 1101 Marianna
St., Chicago, 111., to Mrs. Pinkham:
•' I have been troubled for the past
two years with falling of the womb,
leucorrhoea, pains over my body, sick
headaches, backache, nervousness and
weakness. I tried doctors And various
remedies without relief. After taking
two bottles of your Vegetable Com
pound, the relief I obtained was truly
wonderful. 1 have now taken several
more bottles of your famous medicine,
and can say that I am entirely cured."
Mrs. Henry Dobb, No. 806 Findley St,
Cincinnati, Ohio, to Mrs. Pinkham:
'■ For a long time I suffered with
chronic inflammation of the womb,
pain in abdomen and bearing-down
feeling. Was very nervous at times, and
so weak I was hardly able to do any
thing. Was subject to headaches, also
troubled with leucorrhoea. After doc
toring for many months with different
physicians, and getting no relief, I had
given up all hope of being well
again when I read of the great good
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound was doing 1 decided immedi
ately to give it a trial. The result was
simply past belief. After taking four
bottles of Vegetable Compound and
using three packages of Sanative Wash
1 can say I feel like a new woman. 1
deem it my duty to announce the fact
to my fellow sufferers that Lydia
E Pinkham's Vegetable remedies have
entirely cured me of ail my pains and
suffering. I have her alone to thank
for my recovery, for which I am grate
fui. May heaven bless her for the
good work she is doing for our sex."

Medical Illustration of What Can Be
. Done With Electricity.
In dentistry no subject is more dis
cussed than the painless filling and
extraction of teeth. Regarding the
former Dr. Thomas H. White, when
seen in his office at 271 % Morrison
street, near Fourth, said:
"That teeth can be filled absolutely
without pain is a positive : fact, which
is demonstrated most every day in lay
office. Teeth that are so sensitive that
the patient cannot endnre :'instra
ment to> touch them can be made thor
oughly insensible to pain or feeling in
from 10 to :20 : minutes, and can be
then filled or treated with ease. Yea
electiicity is a great boon to mankind!
Just think of taking the nerve out of a
tooth in 10 minutes from " the time of
the application of the electricity with
out the slightest knowledge ■' of -it\ by
the patient." The late method of
bridge work invented Iby the brother '■'
of Dr. White is a great fimproTanenl!

THOUSANDS ARE SICK.
Critical Condition of the Array In
Porto Kiro.
Ponoe, Porto Rico, Oct. s.—lt is the
well-grounded and almost unanimous
opinion of the medical staff of the
American army in Porto Rico that the
condition of the volunteer forces here
necessitates their immediate removal
north. Sickness is increasing, and has
been increasing duiing the past three
weeks at an alarming rate. Today the
Bick report shows over 2.700 in hos
pitals or in quarters, out of a total com
mand of 10,000 men; that is, over 25
per cent of the troops are on the sick
list. This, however, does not mean
that there is an effective strength of
7,500 men. The soldiers discharged
from the hospitals as fit for duty are in
nine cases out of ten incapable of serv
ice, and if ordered on duty are almost
invariably back in the ho&pitals within
a few days.
The medical officers have found that
the convalescents do not, and seeming
ly cannot, recover their strength in
this olimate. and for this reason they
are being sent north as rapidly as pos
sible, several hundred leaving every
week.
FATAL FOREST FIRES.
Several Lives Were Lost In Wisconsin
Voods.
Cumberland, Wis., Oct. s.—The
bodies of a man and a boy were found
today in the woods between Ainena and
Poskin Lake, burned beyond recogni
tion. Several persons are still missing.
Peter Ecklund, who was seriously
burned by forest fires, was brought to
this city today in a critical condition,
and it is thought he cannot live. A
4-year-old daughter of Rudolph Miller,
and the 7-year-old son of Nels Swanson
were found in the woods, \% miles
northeast of Almena, so badly burned
that they cannot recover.
Mrs. Frank Heinrichmeier, at Poskin
Lake, died this morning, as a result of
fright and exhaution in fighting fires.
Relief rooms were opened today, and
relief is being extended to starving
families. The fire is still roaring on
one side of this city, but the gieatest
danger is believed to be over. Near
the town of Johnston. Polk oounty,
eight miles distant, heavy loss of farm
property is reported today, and fire?
are still raging.
AMERICAN PORK.
Thousands of Tons Have Entered Ger
many Without a Certificate.
Berlin, Oct. 5. —A most important
revelation regarding American pork was
made by the German government an
nouncement in the semi-official press
today, that it has received information
showing that American pork had en
tered Germany without certificate.
The United States embassy confirms
the report that the discovery had been
made that thousands of tons of Ameri
can pork have been imported through
a number of custom houses for years
past without certificates. The embassy
has requested the foreign office to in
struct the custom house to insist in
every case upon a certificate.
No American firm is implicated in
these transactions, which explain the
alleged discoveries of trichinae in
American pork. German dealers in
American pork offered in July last a
reward of 1,000 marks for a case of
human trichinosis due to American
pork, and three months have passed
without anybody claiming the money.
NEARING THE CRISIS.
Foreign Ministers at Peking Hold an
Emergency Meeting.
London, Oct. 5.—A special dispatch
from Shanghai says that telegrams from
Peking have been detained two days.
The last telegram received, according
to this dispatch, announced that the
foreign ministers had held an emer
gency meeting. The German warship
at Kiau Chou, it also stated, had start
ed hurriedly for Taku the day before.
Marquis Ito, who, it is understood,
is visiting China, for the purpose of
arranging an offensive and defensive
alliance betwen China and Japan, has
left Tien-Tsin for Shanghai, owing to
the impossibility of prosecuting nego
tiations during the crisis.
The foreign ministers, it is stated,
forbade any foreign residents going to
Peking. It is expected that Sir Claude
Mac Donald, the British minister,
shall surrender Eang Yu Wei.
Yainantsu, leader of the rebellion,
in the Sze Chuen province, has issued
a proclamation ordering the extermina
tion of all foreigners.
Mob Menacing Foreigners.
London, Ost. 5. —The Peking corre
spondent of the Daily Chronicle, tele
graphing Saturday by way of Shanghai,
says: "A mob is menacing foreign
ers. The wife of the Italian minister
was attacked yesterday, while on her
way to church, and several Americans
coming from the railroad were wound*
ed by stones.
"The foreign ministers have sent a
collective note to the government, ask
ing for the suppression of these out
rages, and the punishment of the cul
prits."

Helwerth is credited with $15,000 and
George MoGoid $10,000. Dan McDon
ald, a brother of Alex McDonald, the
mining king, is said to have brought
out $10,000.

May Be Needed.
! Washington, Oct. s.—To a number
of interested callers today, President
| McKinley bad occasion to reiterate his
determination to have no more troops
mastered oat for the present. In the
coarse of interviews, he stated in cab-;
I stance that it was the intention of the
! administration 'to send | fresh troops
Porto Rico to take the place of the
volunteers, who will have to be re
tarriedi home, and who will be given
furloughs. He stated verj firmly that
there would be no general discharge
until the situation was cleared up.
TORNADO AND FLOOD.
Coasta of Georgia and South Carolina
Swept—Property Loss Heavy.
Savannah, Ga , Oct. 4.—For 15
hours, from 3 o'clock this morning
until 6 o'clock tonight, Savannah has
been in the grasp of a West Indian tor
nado. During the day the wind blew
Bteadily from 50 to 70 miles an hour.
While the city escaped with compar
atively little damage, the loss of prop
erty among the eea islands of the Geor
gia and South Carolina coasts is be
lieved to be heavy.
For miles in every direction around
Savannah the towns along the rivers
are submerged. Only one fatality has
so far been reported—the drowning of
a negro while attempting to reach the
land from a small island near Thunder
bold—but heavy loss of life is feaTed
on the South Carolina sea islands,
where such fearful loss of life occurred
during the great tidal wave of 1893.
The conditions now are similar to those
during that storm. Owing to the sub
merged country and the isolated loca
tion of the islands, no news can be had
from them until the water subsides.
For eight mi lea north of Savannah
the entire country is a lake, with only
the hummocks visible. At noon the
water was eight feet above the highest
tide. Driven on shore by the northeast
storm, it filled up on the islands, swept
over banks, and dams, carrying away
the remnant of the rice ciop that was
left by the August storm, and had not
been gathered, and wiping out farm
crops. The loss to ricegrowers alone
will be from $50,000 to $75,000. Of
the entire rice crop along the Savannah
river, valued at $250,000, all but about
15 per cent was lost in this and the pre
ceding storm.
Ihe damage to shipping is considera
ble. The schooner Governor Ames,
which waa on her way to sea with a
cargo of 1,500.000 feet of lumber, went
adrift in the harbor, but was secured
safely.
The whaives at the quarantine sta
tion, at the entrance to the river here,
were partially carried away.
The telephone, police, light and fire
alarm wires are down, and the oity is
in darkness.
On Hutchinßon's island, opposite
Savannah, and separating the city from
the South Carolina shore, many negro
families were rescued by boats from
the revenue steamers Tybee and Bout
well.
ANOTHER HORROR SHIP.
Surgeon Protests Against Overcrowding
on the Obdam.
Santiago de Cuba, Oct. 4. —Surgeon-
Major Seaman, of the transport Obdam,
declares that there will be a repetition
of the awful horrors that have charac
terized the voyage home of the other
transports if more sick soldiers are sent
on board the vessel for tiansportation
to New York. He says that when the
Obdam left Porto Rico many on board
were sick, yet the first quartermaster
refused to furnish wine for theii use,
but supplied them with hardtack and
canned food, saying that he had no
authority to furnish wine. Surgeon
Seaman said he would hold him re
sponsible should any deaths occur, and
finally succeeded in obtaining suitable
food for those who were ill. He asserts
that the ship has every man that she
can carry, and that if she reaches New
York without any deaths occurring, she
will be lucky.
Hearing that a number of other sick
soldiers were to be sent aboard her, the
surgeon-major made a protest, and
stated that he was informed by General
Lawton that his protest showed lack of
discipline, and that an officer had been*
appointed to see how many additional
men the Obdam could carry. Surgeon
Seaman says he will cable to Surgeon-
General Steinberg a protest, disclaim
ing responsibility for whatever may
happen.
Mayor McCleary, of Santiago, is en
deavoring to compel the merchants to
sell necessaries of life at reasonable
rates.
MILLION DOLLAR FIRE.
Serious Blow to the Town of Colorado
Springs—Eight Blocks Bnrned.
Colorado Springs, Colo., Oct. 4.—
This city had a visitation of fire this
afternoon which threatened for four
hours to destroy the entire business
district. The wind was blowing at the
rate of 45 miles an hour from the
southwest when the fire started at the
Denver & Rio Grande freight depot, at
the foot of Cucharis street, at 2:10 P.
M., and the flames spread with great
rapidity. A strip four blocks long
from north to south, and two blocks
wide from east to west, has been burned
over, but at this hour the conflagration
is believed to be under oontrol. The
flames are still leaping high over the
burnt district, bat the wind has died
down, and there is no doubt that the
fire engines, which have come from
Denver and Pueblo in response to ap
peals for aid, will be able to confine
the flames within the present limits.
The Antlers hotel, one of the largest
in the West, three lumber yards and
two blocks of business houses have been
destroyed. In round numbers the lon
is estimated at $1,000,000, and insur
ance at one-half of that amount.
San Juan de Porto Rico, Oct. B.—
The meeting of the military commis
sion yesterday was private, and no
news was given out regarding what
transpired. The American troops now
occupy fully two-thirds of the island.
New Steamship Line.
Vancouver, B. C, Oot. 4.—The
Canadian Pacific railway will estab
lish another trans-Pacific line. The
steamers Tartar and Athenian, of ovei
4.500 tons, wjll run between Vancou
ver and Vladivostock, the termini of
the trans-Canadian and trans-Asian
lines, respectively. The Athenian
will sail first, loading here and then
proceeding to Seattle and Portland,
where grain will probably be placed on
board for Russia.
ratal Bicycle Accident.
Chicago, Oct. 3.—One man was
killed, another fataly injured, and a
third seriously hurt in a bicycle acci
dent at the Garfield racetrack tonight
The dead man is Harry Gline, 20 years
old. His skull was fractured. The
injured are aft unidentified man, about
24 years old, taken to the county hos
pital in an unconscious condition, and
may die; and F. A. Bridges, 24 years
old,* whose right shoulder was broken
besides being bruised about the body.

An Overworked Brain.
From the Record, Pierceton, Ind.
Determined to rise in his ohosen
profession as an educator, Ernest Kem
per, of Pierceton, Ind., overtaxed him
self mentally and physically. He was
ambitious, his mind was always on
his work. From early morn until late
at night he continually poured over his
books.
"Burned the candle at both ends."
Few persons, even with the strongest
constitutions, can keep up under such
a strain.
In addition to his studies, Mr. Kem
per was teaching school some thiee
miles from his home. Finally, his
excessive study and tho exposure of
going to and from school in all kinds
of weather undermined his health.
He was taken to his bed with pneu
monia and his overworked brain al
most collapsed. For several weeks he
was seriously ill.
Catarrh had taken root in his system
and his mind was in a delicate condi
tion. He was sent to Colorado where
he spent three months without receiv
ing any benefit. Then a noted special-
Overstudy. *
Ist from Cleveland treated him without
avail, and then a hospital in Chicago
was tried, but all absolutely without
benefit. Finally his physician recom
mended Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People, and from the first box he
began to improve. When he had taken
nine boxes he was completely cured.
This famous blood and nerve medicine
had accomplished what all his former
expensive treatment failed to accom
plish. Mr. Kemper says his catarrh
has entirely left him; he is strong
again and weighs nine pounds more
than he ever did. He gives the pills
the entire credit. He is starting teach
ing again and feels abundantly able to
continue the work. To prove that
the above is true in every respect, Mr.
Kemper made an affidavit as follows:
Subscribed and sworn to before me
this the 10th day of September, 1897.

We doubt if these pills have an equal

Five Dollars Postage for Letters.
W. F. Bailey contributes an article
to the October Century on "The Pony
Express," from St. Joseph, Mo., to
San Francisco. Mr. Baiieysays: The
letters, before being placed in the pock
ets, were wrapped in oiled silk to pre
serve them from moisture. The maxi
mum weight of any one mail was 20
pounds; but this was rarely reached.
The charges were originally $5 for
each letter of one-half ounce or less;
but afterward this was reduced to $2.50
for ?ach lettei not exceeding one-half
ounce, this being in addition to the
regular United States postage. Spe
cially made light-weight paper was gen
erally used to reduce the expense.

Lotteries in Old Havana.
In Havana the stranger's attention
is arrested by the venders of lottery
tickets, who stand on the street corners
with a pair of shears in one hand and
sheets of lottery tickets in the other,
ready to cut off any number for buyers.
They are very adroit, and are apt to
persuade the credulous that they will
draw a fortune in the scheme. These
licensed lotteries are one of the great
evils there, especially to the Spanish
people, who seem to be born gamblers,
and for whom the chances of dice,
cards, and lottery tickets appear to
have an irrestlble charm, all classes in
Havana dealing in them habitually.

A Schilling & Cofitjttfiy Slit PrandjcO
1 Land-Crabs of Cuba.
These creatures are larger than •
sea-crab, and live entirely on the land.
They run with great speed, eren out
stripping a horse. At seasons of the
year they migrate in large bodies from
one side of the island to the other, in
columns sometimes half a mile wide,
and so dense as almost to stop a car
riage on the road they may be crossing.
These columns overcome every obstacle
in their direct line of march, even high
mountains. It is supposed that these
migrations are prompted by the in
stinct of propagation, as the crabs seek
the sea shore, deposit their eggs, and
cast off the old shell. These crabs aie
so common about the city of Matanaas
that the Inhabitants often receive the
sobriquet of "cangrejo." They are
frequently found in the houses, and in
some cases even under the beds.
There is a species of conch which
makes similar marches through the
country in immense bodies. These are
called "pirates, from a very curious habit
they display. This creature, which re
sembles a snail, has the ability of de
taching itself from the shell, whioh,
for some reason, it temporarily leaves
at times; and while its house is thus
vacant, another, passiing, will back its
body, tail foremost, into the empty
shell, and keep possession.
The Pony Express.
At first the schedule was fixed at 10
days, an average of eight miles an hour . [
from start to finish. This was out
down to eight days, requiring an aver
age speed of 10 miles. The quickest
trip made was in carrying President
Lincoln's inaugural address, which was
done in seven days and 17 hours, an
average speed of 10.7 miles per hour,
the fastest time of any one rider being
120 miles, from Smith's Creek to Fort
Churchill, by "Pony Bob," in eight
hours and 10 minutes, or 14.7 miles
per hour. Considering the distance
and difficulties encountered, such as
hostile Indians, road-agents, floods, and
snowstorms, and accidents to horses
and riders, the schedule was main
tained to an astonishing degree. The
service created the greatest enthusiasm
not only among the employes, but
also in the ranks of stage employes,
freighters, and reisdents along the
route. To aid a "pony" in difficulty |
was a privilege, and woe be to the man
who would so much as throw a stone in
the way.
Uncle Sam's Watch Doctor.
At the United States naval observa
tory is an expert official at the bead of
a department—probably the most per*
feet of its kind in the world—whose
duty is to keep in hand for tha use of
the navy thoroughly tested chronome
ters, a work which requires much care
and attention six months in the year.
For this purpose, says The New York
Sun, a temperature ioora is connected
with the chronometer and time service
department, in which the testings are
made, under the influence of a hydro
metric condition of the atmosphere.
Comparisons are made daily between
11 and 11:40 o'clock, morning, with
the mean time standard clock, and the
errors and rates are worked up once a
week, from these mean rates calcula
tions being made and comparisons to
the nearest quarter of a second. The :
temperature is closely observed each \
day and recorded for the previous 24
hours by a chrnomethic thermometer, j
and by self-reg'stering maximum and j
minimum thermometers. The room is j
heated by circulation of hot water,!
the fuel being gas, and is cooled by an !
ice refrigerator when a temperature is '
required below that of the outside at- {
mosphere. For the six colder months
the temperature room is kept within a
range of two degrees.
REDUCTION IN BICYCLE PRICES.
It Is said that western capitalists are con
