BALKAN WAR BEGAN IN 1663 Conflict of Racei Started Long Ago, Seems Destined Now to Be Fought to a Finish. An Italian newspaper reminds us usefully that the Balkan war began centuries ago. In the state archives of Vienna is the declaration of war sent by Sultan Mehemet IV. to Em peror Leopold in 1682. “Be It known to you, the heir of the Caesars, to the king of Poland, and to' your allleB and omnipotent emperor of the east and west. . . . is on the point of Invading your paltry territories. We shall bring 1,300,000 soldiers, on horse and foot, to crush you utterly and lay waste all your domains. We command you to await our coming in your residence in Vienna, where it is our Intention to have you beheaded.’’ But the war waB even then an old story. The delightful writer who con tributes “The Office Window” to the London Daily Chronicle tells us that while searching through some of the earliest newspapers printed his eye was continually diverted to news let ters from the continent giving ac counts of the unholy war which Tur key was waging on Hungary and Aus tria. Almost at random he copies the following from the Newes of Septem ber 17, 1663, a grim reminder that the Turk has remained unchanged and un changeable for these 250 years at least: "Vienna, Sept. 6. —In Austria every Fifth Man is to Bear Armes; and they hope to raise 20,000 Men upon that Levy to secure the Frontiers. At this instant comes fresh Intelligence of 10,- 000 Turks, and as many Tartars, pass ing the Waegh, and that they carry all before them with Fire and Sword.” And again: “We hear that upon the third instant the Enemy has beaten our Foot by the River Waegh, and Possess’d himself of the narrow Pas sages between the Hills, where he has burnt divers Towns and Villages, and Massacred many Thousands of People, striking off the heads of some, putting others in Chains . . . and cutting to pieces Young and Old without Dis tinction or Mercy.” Electricity and Plant Life. The theory has been advanced and backed up by experiments which are at least Interesting, that pointed leaves standing up at the top of grow ing plants attract electricity from the atmosphere and that such electric forces aid materially in the growth of plants so equipped by nature. One in vestigator, R. E. Dimick of Almena. Wis., reports that vegetables which were well cultivated have shown a smaller growth than the normal when they had pointed wires stuck up among them to act like lightning rods in drawing off the electricity which Mr. Dimick believes to 'be attracted by points and needful to plant life.

Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound. » "Worth"mountains of gold,” says one woman. Another says, “I would not give Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound for all the other medicines for women in the world.” Still another writes. “ I should like to have the merits of Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound thrown on the sky witha searchlight so that all suffering women could read and be convinced that there is a remedy for their ills.” We could fill a newspaper ten times the size of this with such quo tations taken from the letters we have received from grateful women whose health has been restored and suffering banished by Lydia & Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound. Why has Lydia E. Pinkham’s. Vegetable Compound accomplished such a universal success ? Why has it lived and thrived and kept on doing its glorious work among the sick women of the world for more than 30 years? . . Simply and surely because of its sterling worth. The reason .no other medicine has ever approached its success is plainly and sim ply because there is no other medicine so good for women s ills. Here are two letters that just came to tne writer’s desk—only two of thousands, but both tell a comforting story to every suffering wo man whp will read them—and be guided by them. FROM MRS. D. 11.
