WOMEN AND HEALTH.
Women beginning to realize tnore fully that good health Is not to be found in the use of cosmetics and face powders. The appearance ot health may follow facial treatment, but health Itself lies much deeper than : ,the surface. Most Important to the health of ev ery woman Is regularity of the bowels and digestive organs. The weary eyes, bad breath, frequent headaches, pimples and general air of lassitude, is in most every case due to consti pation or indigestion, or both. There •re various remedies prescribed for this condition, but the easiest, most pleasant and certainly effective, is a combination of simple laxative herbs with pepsin known to druggists as Dr. Caldwell’s Syrup Pepsin. This simple remedy is far preferable to harsh salts and cathartics and violent purgative waters that disturb the whole system without affording more than temporary relief. Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is a tonlo laxative, mild in its action, pleasant to the taste and positive in its effect, strengthening the muscles of stomach and bowels so that after a short time ihese organs regain the power to perform their natural func tions without assistance. Dr. Caldwell’s Syrup Pepsin Is sold by druggists everywhere in BOc and 11.00 bottles. If you have never tried it, write for a sample to Dr. W. B. Caldwell, 201 Washington St., Montl cello, 111.; he will gladly send a trial bottle without any expense to you whatever. MUST BE SO.

ALMOST CRAZY WITH ECZEMA "I, the undersigned, cannot glTe enough praise to the Cutlcura Rem edies. I had been doctoring for at least a year for eczema on my foot. I had tried doctor after doctor all to no avail. When a young girl I sprained my ankle three different times, paying little or no attention to It, when five years ago a small spot showed upon my left ankle. I was worried and sent (or a doctor. He said It was eczema. He drew a small bone from the ankle about the size of a match and about an Inch long. The small hole grew to about the size of an apple, and the eczema spread to the knee. The doc tors never could heal the hole In the ankle. The whole foot ran water all the time. "My husband and my sons were up night and day wheeling me from one room to another In the hope of giving me some relief. I would sit for hours at a time In front of the fireplace hoping for daybreak. The pain was so Intense I was almost crazy, In fact, . I would lose my reason for hours at a time. One day a friend of mine dropped In to see me. No more had she glanced at my foot than she ex claimed: ‘Mrs. Finnegan, why In the world don’t you try the Cutlcura Rem edies I’ Being disgusted with the doo tors and their medicines, and not be ing able to sleep at all, I decided to give the Cutlcura Soap and Cutlcura Ointment a trial. After using them three days that night I slept as sound as a silver dollar for eight long hours. I awoke In the morning with but very little pain. In fact, I thought I was In heaven. After using the Cutlcura Remedies for tlirfee months 1 was per fectly restored to health, thanks to the Cutlcura Soap and Ointment I will be sixty-four years of age my next birthday, hale and hearty at pres ent.” (Signed) Mrs. Julia Finnegan, 8234 Hebert St., St. I-ouIs, Mo., Mar. 7, 1911.

New York, April 19. —The Cunard liner Carpathla, a ship of gloom and succor, came Into New York tonight with the first news direct from the great White Star liner Titanic, which sank off the Grand banks of Newfound land early Monday morning last. The great liner went down with Its band playing, taking with It to death all but 745 of Its human cargo of 2,340 souls. To this awful death list six persons were added. One died In the lifeboat which was put off from the liner’s side and five subsequently succumbed on the rescue ship Carpathla. SAYS 1,726 LOST LIVES. The list of prominent men missing stands as previously reported and the total death list as brought to port by the Carpathla Is 1,601. Charles F. Hurd, a staff correspondent of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, who was a pas senger on the Carpathla and Inter viewed the survivors, estimaies the number of dead at 1,726. Survivors In the lifeboats huddled In the darkness at a safe distance from the stricken ship and saw It go down. As to the scene on board when the liner struck, accounts disagree wide ly. Some maintain that a compara tive calm prevailed; others say that wild disorder broke out and that there was a maniacal struggle for the life boats. That the liner struck an Iceberg as reported by wireless was confirmed by all. REPORT CAPTAIN A SUICIDE. Sensational rumors told by hysteri cal passengers who would not give their names said that Captain Smith had killed himself on the bridge, that the chief engineer had taken his life and that three Italians were shot In the struggle for the boats. These ru mors could not be confirmed In the early confusion attendant on the land ing of the survivors. Ripped from stem to. engine-room by the great mass of Ice It struck amid ships, the Titanic's side was laid open as If by a gigantic can opener. It quickly listed to starboard and a show er of Ice fell onto the forecastle deck. Shortly before It sank It broke In two abaft the engine-room and as It disappeared beneath the water the ex pulsion of air caused two explosions which were plainly heard by the sur vivors adrift A moment more and the Titanic had gone to Its doom, with the fated hundreds grouped on the afterdeck. RECEIVED WITH WHISPERS. The Beene at the Cunard pier as the Carpathla came up the harbor and warped Into Its dock was one of per fect order and an awe-like air of wall ing. The crowds had steadily aug mented and along the shores of the bay from the Battery on, where tens of thousands were gathered to witness the passing of the funeral ship, all conversation was conducted In a whis per. For twenty minutes there was an agonized wait while the boat was be lngly slowly warped Into Its berth. When the ship docked the gang plank was quietly lowered and the doctors and .nurses went aboard.- Then the first survivors began to leave the ship. As the Carpathla was passing Into Its slip It was surrounded by newspa per boats and frequent flashes from cameras taking pictures of the rescue ship punctuated the silence like a series of bombs. As they came Into the street a dead silence fell over the crowd and even the flashlight battery for a moment ceased Its bombardment. BTORY OF SURVIVORS. Testimony of half a dozen of the Titanic passengers given to a report er Immediately after they left the Carpathla goes to prove that the Ti tanic struck an Ice field that Btretched for fifty mileß over the frozen sur face of the ocean. First stories of the survivors on the Carpathla pieced together, though told In disjointed, hysterical fashion, paint a picture of the awful Titanic calam ity full of horror, fear, panic and con fusion. Hundreds were asleep In their beds, scores were sitting at the tables In the card roms, smoking rooms and saloons when the Titanic hit the ice berg with a terrific shock that sent them hurling across the cabins. Stunned by the terrific Impact, the dazed passengers,-many of them half clad, rushed from their staterooms In to the main saloon amid tbo crash of splintering steel, rending of plates and shattering of girders while the boom of falling pinnacles of Ice upon the broken deck of the great vessel add ed to the horror. In wild confusion men, women and children rushed about the saloons and cabins of the great steamship as though driven out of their senses. No one knew what had happened and everyone feared that the vessel would sink before they could reach the boats. In a. wild, apparently ungovernable mob they poured out of the Baloons to witness one of the most appalling scenes possible to conceive. Towering high above the shattered bow of the great steamship were the glistening pinnacles of the monster Iceberg against which the Titanic haa hurled Itself with the force of half a hun dred express trains. BOW A SHAPELESS MASS. For a hundred feet the bow was In a shapeless mass of bent, broken and splintered Bleel and Iron. Cries of the Injured added to the panic. A fear crazed mob of steerage passengers broke loose from the lower cabins and poured upon the deck with crleß of fright. Women and children were hurled aside In the first mad rush for the boats. Two hundred of the crew lay crushed to death In the bow of the great steamship, where they had been killed as they slept. Above all the din of the panic were the hoarse orders of the captain, repeated by the second, third and fourth officers down the list. The remnants of the crew rallied about the lifeboats, and while some b t back the panic-Btrlcken passen gers crowded about them, others pre pared to lower the boats. ORDERED TO SHOOT MEN. "Everybody to the boats," was the startling cry that was repeated from end to end of the Titanic. "Women and children first!” was the hoarse order that went along the line of lifeboats. "Shoot the first man who attempts to get into a boat!” Armed officers with revolvers in their bnndß faced the fear-crazed throng that poured like an overwhelm ing flood through the gangways and upon the upper deck. First class pas sengers who kept their wits amid the awful confusion of the first ten min utes rallied to the support of the crew and with drawn revolvers awed the mob which fought to climb into the lifeboats. Then came the shudder .of the riven hulk of the once magnificent steam ship as It slid back from the shelving Ice upon which It had driven, and Its bow settled deeply Into the water. “We’re lost! We're lost!” was the cry that rose from hundreds of throats. "The ship Is sinking. We must drown like rats!" NO CHOICE BETWEEN CLASBE3. Men whose names and reputation were prominent In two hemispheres were shouldered out of the way by roughly dressed Slavs and Hungarians. Husbands were separated from their wives In the battle to reach the boats. Tearful leave-takings as the lifeboats, one after another, were filled with sob bing women and lowered upon the Ice covered surface of the ocean were heart-breaking. There was no time to pick or choose. The first woman to step Into a lifeboat held her place even though she were a maid or the wife of a Hungarian peasant Many women clung to their husbands and refused to be separated. In some cast the) dragged their husbands to the boats and In the confusion the men found places In the boats. FLEET DRAWS AWAY. One by one the little fleet drew away from the towering sides of the giant Bteamshlp, whose decks were al ready reeling as It sank lower In the water. "The Titanic Is doomed!" was the verdict that passed from Up to lip. “We will sink before help can come!” Water poured Into every compart ment of the SBO-foot hull, where great plates had been torn apart and huge rivets were sheared off as though they were so much cheese. Pumps were started In the engine room, but the water poured Into the great hull In such torrents through scores of rents that all knew the fight to save the steamship was hopeless. Overhead the wireless buzxed the news to the other steamships. The little fleet of lifeboats withdrew to a safe distance and the 1,300 left on board with no boats waited four long hours for the merciful death plunge which ended aIL Bad Teeth Go With Good Brains, An English scientist has pointed out that there are signs of a steady de generacy in two sets of organs vital to the well being of the human race, and the fall is most marked among the western nations. The evidence is that, coincident with the mental advance of man, there has been a diminution In the provision of teeth. In the ape, the negro, and the white man, brain and teeth are Inversely proportional to efficiency. Increase of cunning has reduced the work of the teeth, and the demand of the brain for blood has starved the former; disorders of di gestion show that the balance Is un satisfactory. important to Mothers Examine carefully every bottle oi CASTORIA, a safe and sure remedy for Infants and children, and see that it Signature of In Use For Over 30 Years.

HAPPY THO» MARRIED ? j There are unhappy married lives, but a large percentage o! these unhappy homes are due to the illness of the wife, mother or daughter. The feelings of nervousness, the befogged mind, the ill-temper, the pale and wrinkled face, hollow and circled eyes, result most often from those disorders peculiar to women. For the woman to be happy and good-looking she must naturally have good health. Dragging-down feelings, hysteria, hot-flashes or constantly returning pains and aches—are too great a drain upon a woman's vitality and strength.
