"I DO MY OWN TORIL"
So Says Mrs. Mary Rochiette of Linden, New Jersey, In this Letter to Mrs. Pinkham. I 7 4 t " I was bothered with a flow which would be quite annoying- at times, and at others would almost stop. " I used prescriptions given me by my physician, but the same state of affairs time I was taken with a flooding-, that I was obliged to 3! keep my bed. Finally, in despair, I gave up my doc tor, and began taking your medi cine, and have certainly been gTeatly benefited by its use. "LydiaE. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound has indeed been a friend to me " I am now able to do my own work, , thanks to your wonderful medicine. I : was as near death I believe as I could ; be, so weak that my pulse scarcely beat and my heart had almost given out. I could not have stood it one week more, ; I am sure. I never thought I would j be so grateful to any medicine. . " I shall use my influence with any i one suffering as I did, to have them 1 use Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable i Compound." Every woman that is puzzled about ' her condition should secure the sympa thetic advice of a woman who under-, stands. Write to Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn, Mass.. and tell her your ills. - A Lrwon In 1'allpnce. When the eminent botanist Professor i Aitman of Glasgow was a small boy, he had the present of a silver bit, whereupon his mother was so worried ; with questions as to what he should do with it tbat fhe exclaimed, "Really, : you had better go to Thomas Elliot's (a ! well known pharmacist) and buy six- ! pence worth of patience. " ( Down the street marched the lad and demanded of the chemist, "Mr. Elliot, i please give me sixpence worth of pa- tience. " , Mr. Elliot, taking in the situation at ' a glance, said: "Certainly, my boy; there's a chair. Just sit down and wait till you get it. " Professor Aitinnn's endeavor to pur chase patience was a great success. It made a deep impression on the lad and was one of the factors of his success in life. DELAY MAKES.IT HARDER.

Colonel Hay was when a boy a regu lar attendant of the Presbyterian Sun day school at Warsaw. Ilia The Sunday school lessons partly con sisted of committing to memory Bible verses, and to attain supremacy in this i created quite a rivalry among the schol ars. Jonn Hay was sure to come out ahead from two to five answers, some times more, causing those of his com rades who were always behind him to regard him with envy. Consequently when some of those boys heard that John had to wash dishes and do the churning for his more than all. that he wore an apron while at these duties his jealous com rades fairly crowed. i FOR 30 DAYS YOU CAN TRY IT FOR 25 CENTS.

Some birds, like all children, like to play, and Australia and- New Guinea produce the "bower bird. " which builds regular playhouses. These houses are not a part of their nests, but are con structed usually in the shape of covered archways of little boughs two or three . feet long. 18 inches high and about as wide. They use these houses simply for their games, as if they were clubhouses. Generally these playhouses are decorat ed with bright colcred shells and feath ers, just as children decorate their play houses. "Durability is Better Than Show." The wealth of the multi millionaires is not equal to good health. Riches without health are a curse, and yet the oor, ne in nis turn to tne next, and so on, through the whole juvenile body. On a holiday or fete day the yonug and delicate mistress of a house will not only kiss all her maidservants, bnt all her menservants, too, and if the gentleman does not ventnre above her hand she will stoop and kiss his cheek. To judge also from the number of salutes tbe matrimonial bond in these high circles must be one of uninterrupt ed felicity. A gentleman scarcely enters or leaves the room without kissing his wife either on her forehead, cheek or band. Ireland Called M a n r nines. Few conntries have suffered so many changes of name as Ireland. In the time of Ptolemy the island was known as Scotia. Diodorns Siculns calls the island Irs. or Irisi : -in the "De Mundo. " cred ited by some scholars to Aristotle, it is called Irenne: in the "Argonantica of Orpheus" it appears as Irinns; St ra bo calls it Irene: Csesar. Tacitus and Pliny mention it as Hibernia: Mela called it ! Juverna.

Xnaert Antón. The slow napping of a butterfly's wing iiroduces no sound. When the movements are rapid, a noise is produc ed which increases with the number of vibrations. Thus the house fly. which produces the sound of F. vibrates its wings 21.120 times a minute or 335 times a second, and the bee. which makes a sound of A. as many as 26.400 times or 440 times a second. A tired bee hums on E. and. therefore, accord ing to theory, vibrates its wings only 330 times a second. Two Waj s of a Sameness.
