DEAR MRS. PINKHAM:
I cannot beg-in to t ell you what youl
remedies have done forme. 1 suffered
for years with falling- and neuralgia
of the womb, kidney trouble and
lencorrhcea in its worst form. There
were times that I could not stand, was
sick all over and ia despair. 1 had
not known a real woil day for 15 years.
I knew 1 must do something at once.
I had tried physicians without receiving-
any lasting benefit. I began the
.r'Tt use of Lydia K. I'inkham's
Y Vegetable Compound.
$P r? i7 Now, I ha ve used 9 bot-
3 2V j increased 25 lbs. 1
fA-iJiM everv one to
'l) whor,. and what I owe
aiy recovery, and there
are 13 of my friends
orn pound
ng what
urie for mo.
Oh. if I had known
of it sooner, and
Baed all these years of misery. 1
can recommend it to every woman."
Kate Yodes, 40S W. 9th St., Cincin
nati, O.

Mrs. Pinkham, at. Lynn, Mass., who

and later her only daughter passed on
before, leaving her with no relatives in
this place nearer than cousins, although
she has sisters in Pennsylvania. The in

H. Perry found a relic of the good old
Colonial times, when we were under the
king, in the shape of a half-penny of

been lost more than 100 years ago, as the
old house hats been pulled down more
than that length of time.

To this fact theie is no stronger evidence
than her son, Charles II Finkham. whom
the Times-Herald reporter had the uleas
ure of interviewing to-day.
Lydia Finkham's personality has prob
ably never been described in the publica

out that she was a living force in the
world was a positive fact.
Charles H. Pinkham pass, d through
Chicago the other diy on hii way to
spend a vacation in the West. To a repre
sentative of the Times-Herald he spoke
feelingly of his motherland -the painful
impression. that prevails in sonic quarter
as to her non-existence.
'Of course," said Mr Pinkham, "the
mere idea is absurd to me, her son, who
knew her to be the kindest, sweetest, geti
tlest mother in the world. She was all
her portrait speaks her to be, and the
whole life was given up to doing all tin
good she could in this weary world.
"Her life was simple and her heart ful
of sympathy and tender feeling. After
the busi .ess grew with almost miracu
lous rapidity, she devoted her entire time
to it, or at least to that branch of it which
related to correspondence with women
seeking her advice, and her pleasure was
in that duty. 1 am proud to say that my
mother was not a myth, and that there
was not a drop of seifi-hness in her make
up.'
Mrs Pinkham was utequ

advertisements, and that face has seldom
failed to warm the heart of anyone who
has seen it. Mr Pinkham carries a;portrait
of his mother in his inside pocket. It is
the face of the advertisement, sure
enough.
Lydia Estes that was her maiden
name was born in Lynn, Mass., and be
fore her marriage she taught school in
the little Yankee town. Her parents
were Quakers, and it was in that simple
fraternity she exhibited her early ideas
of kindness. Her husband was a success
ful real estate man, and possessed consid
erable wealth. There were four children,
two of whom Churles II. Pinkham and
Aroline Chase Finkham survive, and
who now own the business equally.
Mrs Pinkham had for years brewed the
compound that now bears her name, on
her kitchen etove, and had given it away
to her neighbors. When the panic of
1873 came Mr Pinkham, senior, lost his
fortune. It was while the family were
