An Extraordinary Island.
In the bay of Plenty. New Zealand.
Is one of the most extraordinary Is
lands in the world. It is called White
island and consists mainly of sulphur
mixed with gypsum aud a few other
minerals. Over the island, which is
alout three miles In circumference and
which rises between SOO and D00 feet
above the sea. floats continually an
Immense cloud of vapor attaining an
elevation of 10.000 feet. In the center
Is a boiling lake of acid charged water
covering 00 acres and surrounded with
blowholes from which steam aud sul
phurous fumes tire emitted with preat
force and noise. With care a boat can
be navigated on the lake. The sulphur
from White island Is very pure, but

her by a local theater for her services
for a few weeks. The offer was ex

with Charles Frohman stood In the
way. However, on tne notiunz ven
ture nothing won theory, she tele
graphed a detailed statement of the
offer she had reeefved to Frohman In
New York, explained how anxious she
was to accept it and wound up with
the plea. "Will you release me?" In
due course of time she received the
following telegram In answer:

When a physician tells a woman suffering with ova
rian or womb trouble that an operation is necessary, it of
course frightens her.
The very thought of tho operating tablo and the knife
strikes terror to her heart.
And our hospitals are full of women who are there for
ovarian and womb operations !
It is quite true' that these troubles may reach a stago
where an operation is the only resource, but such cases are
much rarer than is generally supposed, because a great
many women have been cured by Mrs. Pinkham's med
icine after the doctors had said the operation must be
Iijdia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has
been very successful in curing ovarian troubles. In fact,
up to tho point where the knife must be used to secure
instant relief, this medicine is certain to help.
Ovarian troubles are easily developed from" womb
troubles, and womb troubles are so very common that
ovaritis is steadily on the increase among women. It is,
nevertheless, a most serious trouble, and to recommend
wrong treatment for it is a crime for which there cannot
be too deep a penalty.
It is, therefore, with full consciousness of the serious
ness of the disease and the steady failure of other medicine
to cure it, that we present for ovarian and womb trouble
Iiydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound as the
most certain to help of any medicine in the world to-day.
Any person who could read the letters in Mrs. Pinkham's
files at her office in Lynn, Mass., would be convinced of
the efficiency of Mrs. Pinkham's Compound.
The strongest and most grateful statements possible
to make come from women who have escaped the operat
ing table by tho uso of this medicine. Let any woman
suffering from these troubles, or anything which may de
velop into them, write and get Mrs. Pinkham's advice. If
you are beyond tho reach of the medicine, you will be
frankly told so, but, if not, you will be fully and carefully
and kindly advised.
The most serious of all the diseases of women, as well
as the minor ills, are promptly overcome by
Earnest Words of Gratitude.
" Dear Mrs. Pixkiiam : After my child
was born, blood poison set in, which left me
with granulated inflammation of the womb
and congested ovaries. I had suffered from
suppressed and painful menstruation from a
pirl. The doctors told me the ovaries would
have to be removed. I took treatment two
years to escape an operation, but still re
mained in miserable health in both liody and
mind, expecting1 to part with my reason with
each cominjf month? After using1 one bot tin
of the Compound, I became entirely rid of the
trouble in my head. I continued to use your
remedies until cured. The last nine months
have been parsed in perfect pood health. This
I owe entirely to Lydia II. Pinkham's Vege

"Dear Mrs. FTnkham: Your Vegetable Compound has completely
cured me of the worst form of womb trouble, and made mo a strong,

H. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, I suffered
with severe pains in back and side, headache
and nervousness. Menses would sometime:
occur every two weeks, and once I had a se
vere hemorrhage which lasted a month. I wns
confined to my bed nnd the attending physi
cians told me I would have to undergo an oper
ation as soon an I was strong enough. I read
in one of your little books several testimonials
from ladies who were cured by your Compound
after having been told by their doctors that an
operation was necessary, and I made up my
mind then and there to commence taking your
Compound. I did so and it has completely re
stored me to good health. I have gained twenty
two pounds since taking it and toy flesh is ;is
