Invitation to V&onten All the world knows of the wonder ful cores which have been made by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound, yet some women do not realize that all that is claimed for it is abso lutely true. If all suffering women could be made to believe that Mrs. Pinkham can do ail she says she can, their suffering would be at an end, for they would at once profit by her advice and be cu red. There is no more puzzling thing than that women will suffer great pain mouth after month when every woman knows of some woman whom Mrs. Pinkham has heiped, as the letters from grateful women are constantly being published at their own request. The same derangements which make painful or irregular periods with dull backaches and headaches, and dragging-down sensations, presently develop into those serious inflamma tions of the feminine organs which completely wreck health. Mrs. Pinkham invites women to write freely and confidentially to her about their health and get the benefit of her great experience with the suf ferings of women. No living person can advise you so well. No remedy in the world has the magnifieent record of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound for absolute cures of female Ills. Mrs. Pinkham's address is Lynn, Mass. Three Letters from Ono Woman, Showing how She Sought Mrs- Pinkham's AM, and was cured of Suppression of the Men ses and Inflammation of the Ovaries m " Dear Mrs. Pinkham I have been in bed a year. Doctors say I have female weakness. I have a bad dis charge and much soreness across my ovaries, bearing-down pains and have not menstruated for a year. Doctors say the menses will never appear again. Hope to hear from you." Mrs. J. F. Brown, Holton, Kan's., April 1, 1898. " Dear Mrs. Pinkham I received your letter. I have taken one bottle and a half of your Vegetable Com pound, and used two packages of your Wash, and feel stronger and better. I can walk a few steps, but could not before taki.g your Compound. I still have the discharge and am sore across the ovaries, but not so bad. Every one thinks I look better since taking Sour Vegetable Compound. " Mrs. J. P. Ibown, Holton, Kans., Aug. 13, 1898. " Dear Mrs. Pinkham I think it is my duty to let you know the good that Lydia E. Pinkham's Compound has done me. After I took three bottles, menses appeared, and I began to feel stronger and all my pain was gone. Tours is the only medicine that ever helped me. 1 am able now to work around the house, something I did not expect to ao again. Mrs j . h. Brown, Holton, Kans., Jan. 25, 1899.

Mrs. Cab a Phillips, Anna, 111., July 19, 1897. " Dear Mrs. Pinkham I want to thank you for what you have done for me. When I wrote to you I was a total wreck. Since taking your Vege table Compound, Liver Pills and Sana tive Wash, my nerves are stronger and more steady than ever before, and my backache and those terrible pains are gone. Before I took yom medi cine I weighed less than one hundred and thirty pounds. I now weigh one hundred and fifty-five pounds. Your medicine is a godsend to poor weak women. I would like to ask you why I cannot have a child. I have been married nearly three years." Mrs.Cab bik Phillips. Anna, 111., Dec. 1, 1897. " Dear Mrs. Pinkham I did just as Ton advised me, and now I am the happy mother of a fine baby girl. I believe I never would have had her without your Vegetable Compound." Mas. Carrie Phillies, Anna, 111., Jan. S7, 1899. Proof that Falling of the Womb Is Overcome by Lydia Em Pinkham's Vege table Compound. " Dear Mrs. Pinkham When 1 wrote to you some time ago, 1 had been suffering from falling of the womb for many years without obtain ing relief. Was obliged to wear a bandage all the time ; also had bad headache and backache, felt tired and worn out. After taking six bottles of L.yaia ts.

The name rheumatism Is applied to a great variety of affections accompan ied with pain in the joints or muscles, some of them more of a gouty or uric add nature, others probably of infec tious origin, and others still the expres sion of some disease of the nervous structures. Acute articular or Inflammatory rheu matism is a disease characterized by pain and swelling in one or more of the joints, usually the larger bones, such as the knee, together with fever of j more or less intensity. It is a disease of temperate climates, especially in cold and damp regions, being very sel dom seen In the tropics. It occurs In this country chiefly in late winter and early spring, although it may occur, particularly on the seacoast, at any j time of the year. In England it is said to be most frequent in the autumn. It attacks persons between the ages of 15 and 40 more commonly than those who are older or younger. Physicians are not yet agreed as to its nature, although many now incline to regard it as a germ disease. It be gins gradually, with slight aching in the limbs, sore throat and a general feeling of depression. The appetite fails, the tongue is heavily coated, oftajn there Is complaint of headache, and of chilly sensations and the sufferer Is generally "out of sorts." There is fev erishness, and as this increases, pain and swelling appear in one or more of the large joints. The joints attacked are hot, red and exquisitely painful and have every appearance of being severe ly Inflamed. All these symptoms may disappear in a single night from one joint and ap pear at the same time in another; and so the disease may go on, attacking one joint after another, those first af fected recovering much of their tone and function. One of the characteris tic symptoms is profuse perspiration; the skin is not red and dry, as in moat fevers, but cool, moist and sometimes actually dripping with sweat. The disease may come to an end in a week or ten days, or it may go on at tacking joint after joint and when all have suffered It may begin over again and so go on indefinitely. As long as the rheumatism Is confined to the joints there is little danger, although occasionally death results from exces sive fever; but there is always danger that it may attack the lining membrane of the heart and cripple the organ per manently. Rarely it attacks the mem brane of the brain, causing violent de lirium or death. Youth's Companion.' CALLED ENGLAND'S BLUFF. Russian Diplomat Won Port Arthur by a Coop After a Peace Rumor. Count Muravleff's most famous "coup" was the grabbing of Port Ar thur. Concerning that bit of active diplomacy on the part of the late Rus sian Minister, the following story Is being told: Muravieff, it is said, heard at the psychological moment in the ne gotiations during the Chinese crisis of two years ago of Queen Victoria's i vowed determination never to sign an Dther declaration of war. With this knowledge at command he held the key it the situation in the far East He knew that Great Britain would aot "risk a war," and, therefore, he read the brave talk about the "open door" with a smile, and received Lord Salisbury's protests thereby as signi fying so many pretty phrases and hit veiled threats as simply bluff. In this way, say those who believe the story, lies the explanation of that sudden withdrawal of the British ships of war from Port Arthur after they had gone In with such brave parade. They were sent as an ultimatum, but the Admiral discovered that there was nothing at the back of the ultimatum. In short, M'iravleff's discovery of the alleged determination of the Queen never to sign another declaration of war enabled him to accomplish without i shot what Russia had secretly been itrlving to reach for centuries. In the anguage of the new diplomacy, it was he scoop of the century. Racing Camels. Of all animals the camei would seem to be the least likely to distinguish It self at a race, yet camel raceo are held regularly In the south of Algeria, where valuable prizes are offered for the en couragement of the breed of racers; and as much Interest is taken In their preparation and performances as In that of race horses at Latonia. The rac ing camels are the result of very care ful breeding through many generations, and in size, temper and appearance they are so different from the ordinary beast of burden that they might almost be considered a different race of ani mals. Perhaps the most conspicuous characteristic of the ordinary camel is Its extreme slowness. Nothing op earth will ever Induce It to hurry. Twenty five dollars will buy a very fair speci men, but for a mehart, or racing camet, five or ten times that sum is paid. The racer, however, can be depended on for nine or ten miles an hour, kept up for sixteen or seventeen hours almost with out a stop. The pace in a camel race is generally fast and furious at the begin ning, when all the animals are together and seem to realize that a contest is In progress. Bamboo in China. Bamboo is of universal use in China. The windows are delicate lattice work of bamboo, and the furniture is of slen der bamboo, bent and curled and plait ed.

"We doctors have some odd experi ences at times," said a medical exam iner of a large insurance company the other day. "There is a certain suburb an settlement on the outskirts of New York, which shall be nameless, as the residents are continually engaged in Litigation with one another. "Their litigious habits have made them suspicious of all strangers who visit their place of abode. Not long since my company directed me to go out there and examine an applicant for a policy, and his name well, I'll call him Harris. I drove out there In my gig and stopped at the house where, ac cording to the application, Mr. Harris resided. I rang the bell, and a middle aged man, with a very large nose, and wearing a large diamond in bis shirt bosom,' opened the door. " "1 want to see Mr. Harris,' I said. "'What do you want with him?' he asked, suspiciously. " "That is my private business,' I re plied. "But I want to see him. Is he at home?' " ls It any law business?' he asked. 'Do you want to serve any papers on him?' " 'Oh, no,' I responded, 'I was sent here by the Blank Insurance Company, to which he has made application for life insurance. I am a medical exam iner.' " 'All right,' he said, apparently great ly relieved. 'I'll see if he is In.' "With that he closed the door, and I turned to watch my horse. In less than a minute 1 heard the door open again and a voice said: f 'I understand you want to see Mr. Harris. That's my name.' "I turned around, and there was the Identical man that had opened the door tirst big nose, big diamond, and all. He had merely closed the door and then Dpened It again before he acknowledged his identity. New York Times. DEDICATED A ROOF GARDEN. Band Concert and Refreshments at a New Church Heaort. The Central Christian Church of Co lumbus, Ind., resolved that the chil dren of the world shall not enjoy a monopoly of the good things of exist ence, has just opened a roof garden upon the church edifice, which Is to serve as a resort for members and the general public during the hot weather, and as a place of worship whenever it shall be deemed advisable. This roof garden was formally dedicated last week. It was illuminated with electric lights -and decorated with palms, flow ers and fancy lanterns. Refreshments were served on small tables throughout the garden and the place resembled a genuine roof garden as closely as It could consistently to be upon a churcb. Another concert will be given soon. TERM "MOB." It fetms to Hare Been Used as Far Back as Chancer. As Indicating the populace, prover bially fickle and easy to be moved (mo bile, from Latin mobilis) the expression "the mobil people' is as old as the time of Chaucer; but. In Its later serrithat of a disorderly crowd, and In Its con tracted form, "mob," It is not r'der than the post-Restoration period. In Roger North's Examen, 1740, valuable for the many original anecdotes of En glish history that it contains, reference s made (Page 574) to a certain club (the Ureen Ribbon Club, 1680-82), and the writer adds: "1 may note that the rab ble first changed their title and were ?alled the mob, In the assemblies of this ;lub first mobile vulgus, then contract ed in one syllable." It was used best tatlngly at first by Dryden (Don Se bastian, 1690, Durfy (Commonwealth of Women, 1686), and Shadwell (Squire it Alsatia, 1688), and Richardson points ut that Dryden uses both "mobile" ind "mob" in the sense of rabble: the former In the stage directions as the :ommon word, the latter as If it had not ong been Introduced. In 1711 the Spec tator Instances "mob" as an example of the popular tendency to curtail many of our words In familiar writings and conversation. The verb, "to mob," de rived, of course, as above, does not oc cur until the period of Horace Walpole many years later, and Shakspeare's ex pression, "the mobled Queen" (Hamlet), refers not to the "mob" (mobile), but to the headdress in disorder. Too Late for tiis Appointment. George Canning and a friend were looking at a picture of the Delnge, in which an elephant was seen struggling In the waters, while the ark had floated some distance away. "I wonder," said the statesman's friend, "that the ele phant did not secure an inside place." "He was too late," suggested Canning; "he was detained packing up his trunk." How Lincoln Bore Defeat. Abraham Lincoln, being asked how he felt when the news came of a serious party defeat, said: "1 felt somewhat like .ne boy in Kentucky who stubbed his toe while running to see his sweet heart. He said he was too big to cry and too badly hurt to feel like laugh ing." ' Reasoning by Analogy.

The McCormick Harvesting Machine Company, of Chi cago, has been awarded the grand prize on harvesting machines at the Paris ex position. This is the highest award. The McCormick Company also re ceived the highest award, a gold med al, on binder twine, for the superior quality of its product. Special twine machinery from the celebrated McCor mick twine mill was exhibited to the jury and awarded a medal. The McCormicks have received the largest number of awards, as well as the highest awards made to any Amer ican exhibitor. In addition to the grand prize on machines and gold med al on twine they have received two niedals in the department of metallurgy for superiority in forming metals into special parts for machines; in the de partment of machinery a medal for fac tory machinery, and also silver and bronze medals in other classes, six medals in all, besides the grand prize. The international juries of the expo sition have recognized the great revolu tion wrought by McCormick machines and this large number of awards is a great triumph for America. . In addition to winning these awards, the gold medal and 200 francs, the single highest award for binders was won easily by the McCoimick Binder at the field trial at Conlommiers on July 19, against all comers.
