2825 Keeley St., Chicago, III., Oct,, 2, 1902. I suffered with falling and con gestion of the womb, with severe pains through the groins. I suf fered terribly at the time of men struation, bad blinding headaches and rushing of blood to the brain. What to try 1 knew not, for it seemed that I had tried all and failed, but I had never tried Wine of Cardui, that blessed remedy for sick women. I found it pleasant to take and soon knew that I had the right medicine. New blood seemed to course through my veins and after using eleven bottles I was a well woman. Mrs. Bush is now in perfect health because she took Wine of Cardui for menstrual disorders, bearing down pains and blinding headaches when all other remedies failed to bring her relief. Any sufferer may secure health by tak ing Wine of Cardui in her home. The first bottle convinces the pa tient she is on the road to health.

The formal announcement which Con gressman Powers made while at home that he would not be again a candidate for congress, although no news to hi -associates and friends here, has occa sioned the widest regret In connection with many similar announcements, says the Boston Transcript, it must be taken as one of the signs of the times which do not augur well for the future of the house as a legislative body. The fact must be faced that the body has ceased to attract the kind of men that it jpught to have. More than Speak er Cannon's defiance of the senate would be necessary to restore the house to the place where a seat in it will be "worth while" for the really big men of the country. Exceptfor the few leaders who dominate the whole thing there is very little for anybody to do. The member ship of the house is so large and the acoustic properties In it so bad that no member commands any attention when he spe&ks unless he happens to be a "born orator." The salary is pitiably small for those who have to live on it. Membership still has its uses as a stepping-stone for persons who have an eye on the senate or some other coveted post. A set of rich young men are in consequence taking up congressional seats, notably Pennsylvanians, much as well to do people in the cities are buy ing up the abandoned farms of New Hampshire. But for men of good op portunities for professional advance ment at home there is little in a con gressional seat as an end that is worth while, and they are fast finding it out If they do not know it when they get here they soon become aware of the fact, with the result that changes in the delegations of the most important states, which ought to keep men here long enough to reach places of prominence, are becoming painfully frequent. Judge De Armond. of Missouri, one of the most thoughtful men of the house, recently remarked to the Transcript cor respondent: "Nearly all the work or this session will be in passingapproprla tion bills, but have you ever thought how absolutelv farcical Is the nlanp which the house occupies in this pro ceedings? The committee may report a bill having in it a $2,000 item for a cer tain purpose and if time is hanging on the hands of 1 lie house considerable de bate may develop in committee of the whole over the proposal to reduce this item to $1 .500. Perhaps the lower fig ure may prevail. The bill goes to the senate, which promptly raises the item to S.I.Onn. The revised bill, with scores of amendments, comes back to the house. Three men go out on a conference com mittee to split diffrrence with the sen ate. They come back and perhaps after two or three trials of strength the house vote? to accept a certain conference re port whicli Its thrrc representatives have worked out. What become of the old debate between lh $2 000 and the $1.50ri? N"of one man in the house, ex cept possibly one of the conferees, and I mm-h doubt that, will have the remotest notion of what has been done with this item. The Pir.eville Academy Debating eneieiv ni !!- t just a? well have 'resolved' on the question." PROTECTED THIRD RAIL. Prevent Accident from the Klectrle Current on Railiva.vM Thiit I'xe It. A protected third rail, which has so ofien been advocated for the elevated system in New York city, but has as? often hpen judged a practical impossi bility by engineers of the Manhattan Elevated company, is permanently in stalled for 17 miles on the electric road in Switzerland bet wet n Le Fayet and ChrniK uni:;. This protected system, sas t ie Xt w York Prefcs, is entirely sue -s-i'u: a; u has been lit. set by none of the difficulties out forward by those op posed to local adoption. The pro tection is afforded by an insulated box nf pmnfTmcr. beech, which makes con tact with the rail impossible except through Uk narrow slit at the side to ward the :w. through which the metal .ontiectioii with ihe motor of the car is established. The top of the box is fixed with iron distance pieces which support, it only on the off side of the- box. thus allowing tlu above mentioned opening. Xo connec tion would he established, therefore, with the live rail unless something was lored in through this slit. Anyone eould walk over the rail by stepping on the box with perfect safety. Although it might naturally be supposed that such a support woulu not possess sufficiently high insulating qualities for the pres sure employed to prevent considerable leakage, it is computed that the maxi mum loss in this system is less than one ampere per yard. However, the leak age, it is asserted, decreases with a fall of rain or snow, owing to this action washing off the dust and accumula tions that have taken from the strength of current.

Olatsfe, 1 Roy, N. V. I.MaawtfflahBHBar 1 'aPBBawHaa WAS ONCE THE OCEAN. Proof Conclusive That the Vter of the Pacific at Oae Time Extended an Far as Salt Lake. A recent dispatch from Salt Lake City, Utah, states that Mrs. B. F. House, a former Cincinnati woman, has made a discovery which proves conclusively scientists, accordingto the dispatch, that Salt lake was once a part of the Pacific ocean, states the Cincinnati Times-Star. For years geologists and learned sci entists, including experts from the Smithsonian institution, have made vain efforts to discover some convincing proof that the inland sea was once a part of the great Pacific. Parties of sci entists have lived on and traveled the shores of the big lake, but none of their discoveries was ever accepted as positive proof. The discovery made by Mrs. House whieh is accepted by many as proof positive is a piece of sponge-like coral, but contains salt sea periwinkles, which a number of scientists claim are only found in ocean coral. Diligent search was made .for other specimens, but the big coral rock, yel low with age. was all that could be found. Prof. Henshaw, geologist at the Walnut Hills school, said that while the discov ery was a great one and while it was the most convincing proof yet estab lished, he would notaccept itaspositivei although he had never heard of any like specimens being found except in the ocean. O. W. Martin, professor of geology at Hughes high school, said: "The discovery is indeed the most im portant one ever made In that region and will undoubtedly interest scientists and geologists all over the world. Many efforts have been made to establish some positive proof that Salt lake was once part of the Pacific, but they have all failed. "While the discovery, as reported, would afford the most positive proof we have ever had, I could not accept it as conclusive proof. The question of whether the Salt lake was once a port of the ocean has been agitating scientists and geologists for many years, and this recent discovery will no doubt be of great interest to all of them." Mrs. House Is the wife of the chief engineer of the "Western Pacific surveying corps. M. F. Guyer, the professor of geology at the Cincinnati university, when asked his opinion on Mrs. House's dis covery, said: "While it is very strong evidence and probably the most impor tant discovery to that end that has ever been made, I do not think it will be gen erally accepted as positive-proof that the Inland sea was once a part of the Pacific ocean. One thing Is certain it is the first piece of coral ever discovered In an inland body of water that contained periwinkles, and It is almost conclusive evidence that Great Salt lake was once a part of the Pacific ocean." WATER NOT NECESSARY. Anlmnln That Cam Cet Alonr for Lengthy Period with Xot fa ins? to Drink. Other creatures than the camel are able to get along for extended periods without drinking, savs the New York Post. Sheep in the southwestern des- erts go for 40 to 60 days in winter without drink, grazing on the green, suc culent vegetation of that season. Pec- aries in the desert of Sonora live in lit tle dry hills where there is no natural water for long periods. They cannot possibly find water, in fact, for months it a time. The only moisture they can obtain comes from roots and the fruits of cacti. But the most extraordinary case is that of the pocket mouse, one of the com mon rodents of the desert. This little creature, by the way. has a genuine fur- lined "pocket" on the outside of its cheek. When it is hungry it takes food from this pocket with its paw, just as a man would pull a ham sandwich from his pocket. One of these mice has been kept for three years with no other food than the mixed birdseed of commerce. During this period it had not a taste of either water or green food. Other experiment ers have found, in fact, that these mien in captivity refuse such treats, not seem ing to know that water is good to drink. The birdseed put before this mouse con tained not more than 10 per cent of moisture, which is less than is necessary lor digestion. Stuff so dry as this can not even be swallowed until it is moist ened by saliva. Yet this remarkable ' mouse gave nothing but his time to the interests of science. He suffered noth- ing in health or spirits during his cap- ! tivity. The "absolutely abstemious ass" of which Edward Lear wrote is com pletely outclassed. J The question is seriously raised whether .this mouse is provided with a condensing apparatus by which it is able to absorb moisture from the atmosphere. t night and in the burrows the humid- tty is much higher than in th daytime above ground, but it never reaches? tlu? iew point. Tiny Tiinetiiei-t'M. It is a prevalent idea that ladies' watches, on account ot their usually small size, fail as good timekeepers. There is, however, a young woman in England who for some months has used ao other watch than that set in her en gagement ring, and she always keeps her appointments. It is a marquise ring, ail set about with diamonds, and show ing in its center a perfect convex crystal magnifying a wee watch face without hands. The mechanism of this fairy timepiece was made in Switzerland at great cost, but the idea of so small a watch set in so quaint a fashion is no sewer than the reign of Louis XIV., when the spendthrift monarch present td a famewsly beautiful watah ring to his shanaring sister-in-law, the duchess ef Orlcaas.
