Children's Laughter a Pleasing Sound
O Mrs. Janssen'a experience of interest to childless wives.
Millston, Wis."I want to give you a word of praise for your wonderful
medicine. We are fond of children, and for a considerable time alter we
were married I feared I would not have any. I began taking Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound, and it strengthened me so I now have a nice,
strong, healthy baby girl. I suffered very little at childbirth, and I give all
the credit to your medicine, and shall always recommend it highly.'Mrs.
H. H. JANSSEN, Millston, Wis.
Mrs. Held of Marinette, Wis., adds her testimoni al for Lydia E
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. She says:
Marinette, Wis."I was in a nervous condition and very irregular. My
doctor advised an operation. My husband brought me one of your booklets
and asked me to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. It overcame
my weakness so that I now have a healthy baby girl after having been mar-
ried nine years. I am glad to recommend your medicine, and you may use my
letter as a testimonial?'Mrs. H. B. HELD, 330 Jefferson St., Marinette,Wis.
There are many, many such homes that were once childless, and are now
blessed with healthy, happy children Because Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has restored the mother to a strong and healthy condition, as it
acts as a natural restorative for ailments as indicated backache, irregu-
larities, displacements, weakness and nervousness.
Women everywhere should remember that most of the commoner ailments
of women are not the surgical onesthey are not caused by serious displace-
ments or growths, although the symptoms may be the same, and that is why
so many apparently serious ailments readily yield to Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, as it acts as a natural restorative. It can be taken
with perfect safety and often prevents serious troubles.
Therefore if you know of any woman who is suffering and has been unable
to secure relief and is regretfully looking forward to a childless old age, ask
her to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, as it has brought health
and happiness into so many homes once darkened by illness and despair.

Material Called Lamb's Rleece in Syria
Merely Went by Another Name
A certain young globe-trotter, pos
sessed t)f more money than brains, was
.prevailed upon by one of the sons of
the prophet to purqhase at a very large
price a quantity of what was described
as Syrian lamb's fleece.
This,,when he returned to London,
he sent to his tailor with orders to
line an overcoat with it. A few days
after,he called to try on the coat.
"You didn't send us quite enough
material, sir," remarked the tailor,
"and I had to get some more to line
"But," remarked the traveler In sur-
prise,.,"it's impossible/to obtain that
fleece in England. It's only to be ob
tained in Syria."

LAND BANK LEGAL
The supreme court has turned down
he suit brought by the mortgage
brokers against the federal farm loan
bank. Bank activities, which, have
been suspended by this suit for more
than a year, can now be resumed.
Mortgage brokers based their case
mainly on the allegation that exemp
tion pf federal land bank bonds was
It is too early yet to form any opin
ion as to how much relief hard-pressed
farmers may expect from early re
opening of the different land bank's.
There is a strong possibility that the
money trust will make it nearly as
hard for the federal land bank to dis
pose of its bonds as it is for the Bank
of North Dakota.
Perhaps it is not generally known
that in late 1917 the federal land bank
was on the point of closing for this
reason, but the war demand for more
food production forced congress to
provides the banks with $100,000,000.
Having failed to blockade the money
market, the mortgage brokers then
brought the suit which has just been
settled in favor of the bank.
As soon as the decision became
known the senate struck from the ap
propriation bill an amendment au
thorizing the treasury department to
purchase $100,000,000 of federal land
bank bonds. Senator Warren of Wy
oming, who led this move, declared
the appropriation was now unneces
sary. Thus we have another good il
lustration of how fast the money trust
can pull the strings.
Congressman Blanton of Texas,
well known for his wild-eyed attacks
on. organized labor, was himself made
the object of the most humiliating
spectacle In congressional history last
Blanton, it seems, had written Texas
newspapers that his colleagues were
in a conspiracy to get their salaries
raised from $7,500 to $10,000 and that
he alone succeeded in blocking the
scheme by raising points of order and
threatening to force a record vote.
He asked Texas newspapers for their

Washington, D. C-A splendid in

on the charges most often brought
against the Nonpartisan league are
the features of the report made by the

Salina on February 26.

When available in printed form the
report will probably be the most
widely read document in America.
Relative to his experience, ex-Sheriff
Swanson said: "When I went to
North Dakota I was not a member of
the Nonpartisan league, nor a mem
ber of organized labor, and from the
stories I have been hearing I thought' wide attention
there might be something to them. I
want to say to you that since I have
been in North Dakota I find that if
one hadn't heard these things down
here he wouldn't think of them in
Victor Johnson said: "I am the
only member of this committee who is
a Nonpartisan league member. We
went there to get the facts, and when
I got there I found things just as I
believed them to be. I am proud to
belong to the organization and will do
what I can to help make it win out in

Washington this week to address a
general conference of national labor
union leaders. Both speakers pointed
out how North Dakota was being fi
nancially blockaded as a means of
overthrowing government by the peo
ple and spoke of the attractive fea
tures of the state bonds being offered
The 250 prominent officials present
passed a resolution, with one dissent
ing voice, expressing sympathy to
ward the government and people of
North Dakota and recommending that
labor organizations give friendly con
sideration to the bond issue of the
state-owned Bank of North Dakota.
This was all that the general con
ference could do, because deposits of
surplus and investments are handled
by each union separately. The North
Dakota industrial commission was fur
nished with a list of such union offi
cials with whom direct negotiations
can be carried on.
SEED LOAN PASSES.
The senate has cut the appropria
tion of $5,000,000 made by the house
bill for feed and seed loans in drouth
districts to $2,000,000. It is under
stood that this money will be applied
in Montana and western North Da
kota. But very little relief, compared
with what is needed, can be expected
from so small an amount.
COUNTRY WATCHES NORTH
The drastic way in which the money
power is gnashing its teeth against
North Dakota is attracting nation-

City, the New York Journal, the Chi
cago American, the San Francisco

are telling their readers about it.
"North Dakota's plight," says the
Nation, "is a'shining example of ruth
less and open nullification of our pres
ent democracy when it attempts to run
counter to the great financial inter
ests that are the dominating power."
The Chicago American says: "Pri
vate individuals own elevators, banks
and railroads. But the people of a
state must not combine to do the same
thing, for that is a combination of
bolshevism, socialism and anarchy,
with perhaps a dash of 'free love' and
atheism thrown in."
The North Dakota issue is attract

in the same position as in North Da

ments as well as the railroads and
