Sen&o talk with If a person is ill am! needs a medi cine U it not wise to get one that has stood the test of time and has hun dreds of thousands of cures t Its credit ? A great many women who are ill try everything they hear of in the way of medicine, and this experimenting with unknown drugs is a constant menace to their already impaired health. This seems to us very unwise, for there are remedies which are no ex periments and have been known years and years to be doing only good. Take for instance Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound; for thirty years its record has been one un broken chain of success. No medicine for female ills the world has aver known has such a record for cures. It seems so strange that some people wiU take medicines about which they really know nothing, some of which might be. and are, really harmful ; while on the other hand it is easily proved that over one million women have been restored to health by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. We have published in the news papers of the United States more genuine testimonial letters than have ever been published in the interest of any other medicine. All this should, and does, produce a spirit of confidence in the hearts of women which is difficult to dislodge, and when they are asked to take some thing else they say, " No, we want Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound, which has been tried, and De ver found wanting, whose reliability la established far beyond the experi mental stage." We have thousands of letters like the following addressed to Mrs. Pink ham, ihowing that Monthly Suffering is Al ways Cured by Lydia Em Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, also Back ache and Bearing-down pains. "I suffered untold agony every month and could get no relief until I tried your medicine ; your letter of ad vice and a few bottles of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound have made me the happiest woman alive. I shall bless you as long as I live." Miss J OLE Saul, Dover, Mich. . " Four years ago I had almost given up hope of ever being well again. I was afflicted with those dreadful head ache spells which would sometimes last three or four days. Also had backache, bearing-down pains, leucor rhcBa, dizziness, and terrible pains at monthly periods, confining me to my bed. After reading so many testi monials for your medicine, 1 concluded to try it. I began to pick up after taking the first bottle, and have con tinued to gain rapidly, and now feel like a different woman. I can recom mend Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound in the highest terms to all ick. women." Miss Rosa Hei.den, 126 W. Cleveland Ave., Canton, O. Two Letters whloh Prove that Lydia . Pinkham's Vegetable Compound Will Remove Tumor and Cure Other Female Weakness. " Two years ago I was a great lufferer from womb trouble and pro fuse flowing each month, and tumors would form in the womb. I had four tumors in two years. I went through treatment with doctors, but they did me no good, and I thought 1 would have to resort to morphine. " The doctor said that all that could help me was to have an operation and have the womb removed, but I had heard of Mrs. Pinkham's medicine and decided to try it, and wrote for her advice, and after taking her Vegetable Compound the tumors were expelled and I began to get stronger right along, and am as well as ever before. Can truly say that I would never had gotten well had It not been for Lydia E. Pinkham's Compound." Maby A. Stahi,, Watson town. Pa. " After following the directions given in your kind letter for the treat ment of leucorrhea, I can say that I have been entirely cured by the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's remedies, and will gladly recommend them to my friends." A. B. Davids. B)nghamton, N. Y. Another Oaae of Womb, Kidney and Bladder Trouble Cured by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. " Dear Frikkd Two years ago I had child-bed fever and womb trouble in its worst form. Foreight months after birth of babe I was not able to sit up. Doctors treated me, but with no help. I had bearing-down pains, burning in stomach, kidney and bladder trouble and my back was stiff and sore, the right ovary was badly affected and everything I ate distressed me, and there was a bad discharge. " I was confined to my bed when I wrote to you for advice and followed your directions faithfully, takiog Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound, Liver Pills and using the Wash, and am now able to do the most of my housework. I believe I should have died if it had not been for your Com pound. I hope this letter may be the result of benefiting some other suffer ing woman. I recommend your Com pound to everv one." Mrs. Mabt Vaughk, Trimble, Pulaski Co., Ky.

Scientific 1 xplauati n of the Reason tor lalunesa. "The popular explanation of the rea son why men are bald, why their hair falls out move than women, Is because women do not wear closely fitting hats as men, and consequently the air cir culates more freely in the hair, cools the scalp, thereby tending to keep the hair in a healthy condition," said a prominent Washington skin specialist. "This theory is a deep-rooted one, but is only partially true. I will tell you the fundamental reason. It Is not gen erally known that the skin of a woman tits differently over the cranium than that of a man. Beneath the cuticle on a woman's cranium Is a thin layer of adipose tissue, or "fat," about a six teenth of an inch in thickness. This layer of fat is not present on the cran ium of a man. His cuticle tits and draws tightly over the skull. "The result is that the cuticle on a man's cranium atrophies, or dries and withers quicker than that on a wom an's. His hair does not receive the nourishment that is imparted to the hair of a woman by reason of the layer of adipose tissue, and the result is that his hair becomes more readily dry and diseased, falls out. and baldness ulti mately ensues. A bald woman is a rarity. If the cuticle of a woman's head fitted as tightly as that of a man a baldhead ed woman would be a common sight. Wouldn't they be funny objects? Ough! "There Is not one woman in a million that knows that nature was kind to her In the manner I have mentioned; in fact, it is not known outside of the medical profession, and In the profes sion not sufficient Importance is at tached to it in treating diseases of the scalp. It also furnishes an explana tion as to 'why women can go aroiinff In the winter time with a postage stamp for a hat and not take 'cold.' It is not altogether because their hair is thick and long, but because the extra layer of Tat imparts to the head of a woman a warmth that Is not furnished to the cranium of a man. This Is a sci entific explanation which I do not re call reading In the public prints." Washington Star. RECENT INVENTIONS. Small Insects are automatically ra tight by the Invention of a Mali.e man, comprising a lamp Inclosed In a conical shield and resting In a basin partially filled with a liquid, into which the insects fall after striking i against the chimney or shield. Street cars are prevented from run ning into open drawbridges by a South erner's patent safety device which h'as a wedge-shaped block pivoted on either : side of the track, with levers connect ing the block with the bridge to swing I the blocks over the rails as the draw I opens. In a new oven thermometer a pointer s connected to a shaft naming through ! the door, with an expansible bar in side which moves the pointer as the ! heat varies, a damper being set in the ' door to be opened when the heat in I creases and lifts the pointer to a cer j tain height. I To enable firemen to carry a person down a ladder with both hands free a i new apparatus has a heavy steel rod ; bent Into U-shape, with a seat formed : at the bottom of the U, books being ! provided at the top to fit over the flre ! man's shoulders and straps to hold the j person In the saddle.

London's Lost Tunnel. Is there any other city In the wide i world where a cast-Iron tunnel, two I and three-quarter miles in length, ; could He disused, unknown, lost to the memory of all but a few scientists, for over thirty years, excepting London? I I doubt it. j Representing, as it does, .the burial ! of close on 200,000, Is it not simply . marvelous that no effort until the pres i ent has been made to rescue this valu ! able property from the fungi and huge, whiskered rats, and turn it in to some profitable utility? The answer is that , the tunnel has been forgotten, simply lost, and the man who "found" it found j a geld mine extending. from the general postoffiee at St. Martln's-le-Grand to 1 Huston station. ' Mr. George Threlfall, a consulting engineer, of 50 Fenchurch street, i "found" the tunnel, and the story of his discovery is one of surmounting an : almost- interminable Alps of obstacles, j with a period of five years occupied with continual struggle before success crowned his efforts. Windsor. Reer-Drinking in Germany. No country rivals the Germans in the I consumption of beer. More beer is j Irunk in Bavaria than in any other part ' of the world. The Bavarians, accord : lug to statistics, drink 241 quarts of : beer per head in a year. In spirits, again, it Is the Germans who are the j largest consumers, the total amount of i whisky, etc., drunk a year being 429,- 000,000 quarts, while the United States i confines itself to 268,000,000 quarts. In France 312,000,000 quarts are drunk : yearly. Scourge of the Locust. Of the 53.000,000 square miles which the world's land surface comprises, 40, 000,000 are more or less continuously ; subject to the scourge of the hungry locust. It causes, we are told, more pecuniary loss and misery than a na : tive war, or a series of native wars ' combined, or, for that matter, a greater loss than a war between England and the South African republics. Thus the question of fighting the locust is one of the gravest importance. London Chronicle. Neatest Town in the World. Broek, in Holland, is far-famed as the "neatest town in the world." This town is so fastidious that until a few years ago horses were not allowed In its streets, for reasons of cleanliness, and the entire town is as scrupulously kept as a man-of-war. It is a village of 2,700 inhabitants,- the main industry of which is the making of Edam cheese. A UNIQUE SHOE INDUSTRY. Rise of the Jewish Scrny and "cc- ond-" Hnycr. The "ghetto," the home of a mixed mass of humanity, presents a remark able and unique phase of S'ew York shoe selling. Petty shoemakers visit the numerous city shoe factories daily and buy up scraps and "seconds" of all kinds of leather, which they take to their homes, and, after being inspected and assorted by the entire family, it is finally made into pierced backs and wedge heels in black, tan, patent leath er and numerous odd combinations, every inch of leather being utilized. A steady worker turns out at least twenty-four pails of these shoes, working from 7 a. m. until late into the night. In the meantime the thrifty wife puts the finished product into a clothes bas ket and, taking a stool, stations herself at the prominent corner of Hester and Essex streets, right In the heart of the "ghetto." Here activity reigns, thou ands upon thousands of wage earners swarm through the streets; the venders loudly cry their wares to attract the attention of bargain seekers. After a day of bantering and talking the woman has disposed of her shoes and goes home with an empty basket and a pocketful of small change. After many weeks of this routine the econom ical shotmaker has saved enough to realize an ambition and he buys a push cart a two-wheeled affair much like the familiar frultman's cart and with shoes bought at fire sales he pushes boldly into some crowded thoroughfare and lines up against the curb. A tempt ing price loudly proclaimed serves to dispose of the stock as often as he can replenish the same. Under these cir cumstances the meager capital has in creased sufficiently to enable him to open a small shoe store in Hester street and to employ an assistant. He searches wholesale shoe houses for. odds and ends, damaged and mismated shoes, and picks up numerous lots for a fraction of their value. He has now assumed the dignity of a merchant and has gained the confi dence of his countrymen. Encouraged by his success and confident of his abil ity, he buys in larger lots and begins to supply other push-cart dealers. The demand eventually assumes greater proportions; he attends auction sales; which are very frequent in New York, and realizes profit from every .venture. In the course of a few years his envi ronments become too small, he disposes of his push cart and rents a basement in Bayard street, among the East Side shoe jobbers. New York Tribune. MONEY IN OLD TIN CANS. Refuse from the City Becomes a Klon dike for Two Mechanics. Down on the South Side of Chicago, near Seventy-ninth street and Yin cennes avenue; there is a Klondike dis :overed and worked to Its utmost ca pacity by two bright young mechanics. Out toward Englewood, near the tracks of the Chicago. Rock Island and Pacific Railroad, half a stone's throw from Seventy-ninth street, can be seen an immense quantity of old tin cans piled into hills of very decent propor tions. There are hills of tomato cans, min iature mountains of peach and pear ;ans, mounds of milk cans, cans from far-off France, that were once filled with delicate truffles' cans that were once ready to burst with the luscious fruits which California sends to less favored States, oil cans, old kitchen pots and pans, all gathered up from one end of the city to the other, and from hotel garbage boxes. The assay office of this "tin-can Klondike" is near by in a little 16x20 foot frame building, used also as store bouse for refined metal. The factory itself is half a block further down toward Eighty-first street. " These old cans are placed in a fu nace and brought to a red-hot heat by a rousing fire under them, which melts the solder and zinc or "spelter," these sinking to the bottom of the pot, while the tin remains on top. The solder or "spelter" is ladled out and cast into bars, in which form it finds its way to the metal market; while the tin is run out into frames and rolled Into sheets of various sizes, and sent to the stock yards and other factories, .where they are made over. Chicago Inter Ocean. Disease in Fishes. That fishes are liable to disease of various kinds is well known. There is the "salmon disease," caused by the growth of a fungus on the fish, and many parasites that are "unbidden guests" find a home on the bodies of the finny tribe lodgers .or boarders that pay no rent, and cause disease In addition. But it is something new to learn that fishes can be infected with tuberculosis that general dis ease of which consumption Is a man ifestation in the lungs. Into a pond in France tuberculous matter from a pa tient was thrown. The fishes carps were afterwards noted to die. and the germs of bacilli of consumption were found in plenty in their bodies; while when these bacilli of the fishes were given to other fishes, they proved fatal In the same way. There Is one comfort given to us, however, by the French experimenters. It seems that in the fish, a cold-blooded animal, the germs fall off in their vitality, so that it Is unlikely they would affect. man or oth er warm-blooded animals. Bishops Take Umbrellas. The Athenaeum of London is a very solemn club, and consists of eminent doctors, judges, barristers and, above all, bishops. It was a rainy day; It was one of those threatening days with which we are familiar during this dis appointing summer, and one of Lord Salisbury's secretaries observed that his chief was starting out for his lunch eon at the Athenaeum; he rushed for the umbrella and offered It to Lord Sal isbury. "No, no," said Lord Salisbury, "I've lost too many in the Athenaeum. I cannot trust the bishops!" Life of a Queen Bee.

The saying orginated from an inci dent in the life of Philip II., king of Macedon, the father of Alexander the Great. Philip was undoubtedly a great man; but all men, great and small, have their weaknesses, and he 'was a great drunkard. One day, when rising flushed from his wine, be was called upon to decide a lawsuit, and in his bibulous condition be decided it un justly, whereupon the losing party cried: "I shall appeal against your judgment." "Appeal!" thundered the euraged king; "and to whom will you appeal?" "To Philip sober," was her reply. The wisdom of the appeal was justified by the result, for when Philip had become sober he discovered his mistake and reversed his judgment. Cannot Be Overstated. The alarm expressed by the New York Medical journal that the effects of alcohol should be the subject of ex I travagant overstatement has a familiar. lar on sound oi a century ago. au in stance is given, as an example, which appeared in the Journal of Inebriety, concerning the degeneracy of the fam ily of a moderate drinkers. Every city and almost every town in the country contains examples far more significant than this one, in which the effects of alcohol are clearly traceable in the de fects of the children. It is practically impossible to overstate the damage and injurious influence of alcohol, and the old caution of a century ago is lost in the light of recent scientific investiga tions. The fear now is of understating and minimizing the dangers from al cohol by clinging to the worn-out de lusions of alcohol ;is a tonic and food.

Farmers whose deeds gave them land to the middle of the roadway quickly take advantage of their rights when they wish .to dfi so, but they seem to suppose that it Is no body's business to keep the nadside weeds which bef.r seed to be widely distributed. Hay stored in the barn will keep in much better condition, than when put up in stacks. It is almost impossible to escape loss by exposure in stacks, although a large proportion of -hay in tended for early use is kept in that manner. Damaged hay will be wasted by the animals, and there is also a loss of the constituent elements of the hay when exposed. Linseed meal is a valuable food and may be fed at all seasons. Even when grain is allowed it will pay to feed lin seed meal, and when cows are on pas ture they will give more milk if given a quart or two of linseed meal at night. It is richer in the essential elements of growth and produciton than any other concentrated food and greatly enriches the manure. Point! About Milk. Milk is not a beverage; it is a per fect food. Where children drink milk at meals it should take the place of nitrogeneous foods meat, of course, being omitted. It is far better when the children eat meat to give them water to drink. Where two sorts of nitrogeneous food are used, like meat and milk, constipation is universal. Philadelphia and the Caterpillar. The caterpillar pest, which a few years ago wrought great havoc among shade trees in various cities, has been almost whelly done away with in Philadelphia- The preventives which were applied in the shape of cotton wound around the trunks of the trees, have tended to lessen the breeding of the pests, so that now the worms are do ing very little damage to the trees.
