" My young daughter had been troubled for several months with backacne ana a bad feeling in her stomach. When she got to the table to eat she did not want anything, while be fore she was so Hun gry she could hardly wait for her dinner. The doctors gave her medicine but it aid not help her. One day I was reading a little book of yours which was left on my porch and it re minded me that when I was a young girl I took several bottles of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. So she went to the drug store and got a bottle and after the second one she could eat and has not had backache since. In all she took six bottles of it. She goes to school and on Saturdays helps with the housework. She is a normal, healthy girl now and we recommend your medi cine.

Burial will be in the family plot in St. Michael's cemetery. New York, Aug. 23. The legend of St. S within, which decreed forty days of rain following a rainy July 15, has been upset. The saint's day met all expectations with a down pour of 1.15 inches. Today the weather will emerge from that spell with a record of rain on only 18 days out of the 40, counting July 15 as one. Of the other 17 only 10 called for umbrellas, the clouds on seven days spattering a littla water, but not enough) to be measured. Officially they are recorded as "traces." Weather forecaster Scarr has no doubt that the booA Bishop of Win chester deserved sainthood, and that Is as far as the ethics of forecasting will permit him to go: but as to the torrid July and the refreshing con trast of August he has a theory of his own. "The calendar this year,-" he ex plained yesterday, "seems to have been moved forward along with the clocks. In May and June we had weather that we usually expect a month later, and the August dog days came in July. Now we are comfort ably Into September. "July in facf was not so hot as peo ple supposed. But It seemed hot be cause previously and in that month there was a long absence of low tem-peart-uro. "Since 1872 there have been eight years in which the mean tempera ture in July varied only a degree or so from 76, which was last month's mean; and this year the weather had been warm all the spring, and July represented an accumulation of rec ord. Every one may well have wished Che St. Swithln legend to hold good this year, for the long and unbroken spell of hot weather had piled up an accumulated excess of temperature since Jan. 1 of 930 degrees, as com pared with the normal. Thomas Byrnes. The funeral of Thomas Byrnes was held froh his late residence, S83 Stratford avenue at 8:30 a, m. this morning and from Blessed Sacra ment church at 9 a. m. with a high mass of requiem celebrated by Rev. J. J. Duggan. As the remains were brought Into the church the choir sang "Thy Will Be Done": at the of fertory they sang "Ava Maria." and after mass they rendered "Nearer My God to Thee.'' The pallbearers were Nicholas D. Whyte, Richard J. Kerwin, John Connery, "William Meyer, Thomas Reardon and George Slavin. The interment was held in St. Michael's cemetery. Miss Jennie and Miss Rose House of 1506 Stratford avenue left today for New York City where they will HHHn spend a week. In Earlier Days In former times, when the town butcher or farmer himself dressed and cured the meat for the community, he could not always tell how it would turn out. His methods were crude; partly traditional, partly guesswork. His tests were few and inconclusive. Meat packing of today, as carried on by Swift & Company, has changed all that. It is scientific. Nothing is left to chance; nothing taken for granted. The most painstaking care and attention are given to every step. Processes are worked out on a large scale with minute exactness. Methods are continually revised and improved. Cleanliness is insisted upon. Drastic, incessant inspections are the order of the day. Swift products are uniform, graded accord ing to quality. Take bacon, for instance. Swift & Company set out years ago to make a delicious, savory bacon which should be uniformly excellent. The result is Swift's Premium Bacon, always the same, always fa mously good. Today this bacon, wrapped, sealed and branded, has circled the world. Swift & Company's system of distribution car ries it to places which the "town butcher" or the farmer could not reach. ay a SWIFTS PREMIUM Swift & Company, U. S. A. Bridgeport Local Branch, 464 Water St. C. F. Jaeger, Manager "COFFIN TRtTST" IS DENIED. "Washington. Aug. 23 Dental was made today by Colonel Guy 13. Goff. assistant to the Attorney General, that the Department of Justice had instituted any investigation of or was ready to proceed against any so caUed ""coffin trust. " There's nothing in ft. "We never heard of such a thing," said Colonel Go ft. "I dont hesitate to say that if we did have such faots we would begin action. But we have not ob tained such evidenoe in this depart ment. "It may be that some District At torney, somewhere in the country, has uncovered evidence lead'ing him to the conclusion that (there is a coffin trust. But we don't know of it. We have been asked r&wy times yesterday abouit this statement, but I repeat, I don't know anything about It." The statement that the Federal Trade Commission had been conduct ing an inquiry into ithe costs of mak ing coffins and that this evidence would be used as a basis for prosecu tion was also denied. Colonel Goff said be was golnfr to New York and while there he would Inquire whether the "Federal authori ties in thait city had uncovered any special evidence concerning the al leged "coffin -trust."
