PERIODS OF PAIN. Menstruation, the balance wheel of woman’s life, is also the bane of exist ence to many because it means a time of great suffering. While no woman is entirely free from periodical pain, it does not seem to have been na- medical sci- *'■ * * ence. It relieves the condition that pro duces so much discomfort and robs men struation of its terrors. Here is proof: Dear Mrs. Pinkham: —How can 1 ■'thank you enough for what you have done for me ? When I wrote to you I was suffering untold pain at time of . menstruation; was nervous, had head ache all the time, no appetite, that tired feeling, and did not care for anything.

Here is a highly interesting paradox which may amuse or bewilder, as tin case may be. It is supposed to havi been invented by Socrates: A. says that all AthenVins are liars. A. is an Athenian and therefore a liar. Therefore his statement that all Athenians *re liars is not true, and consequently all Athe nians tell the truth A. is an Athenian, and hence tells the truth. Wherefore his statement that all Athenians are liars is true. # Therefore he is a liar and his statement false, and so on. KIDNEY DISEASE, Caused by Internal Catarrh Promptly Cured by Pe-ru-na. Hon.

The manager of a life insurance com pany had the floor. “Life insurance companies,” he was saying, “are as particular about the people they already have on their lists as they are about getting them on in the beginning. They are rich, of course, but they are no more anxious to take in a man who will die of disease within the first year or two than they are to take in a perfectly healthy man and have him hazard his life by taking per sonal risks in dangerous pursuits or by travel in unhealthy countries. “I remember a funny instance that occurred once while I was living in New England. One of our SIO,OOO men had away of calling a man a liar in the most careless and indiscriminate man ner and with only the merest or no provocation. One day he was in our office and casually mentioned the fact that he was going to make a trip to Kentucky. “ ‘When?’ inquired the manager alertly. “ ‘Next week.’ '* 'On business or pleasure?’ “ ‘Going to buy a pair of horses. ’ “ ‘Um—er—erl’ hesitated the man ager. ‘Before you start I wish you would stop in and see me. ’ “ ‘What for? Want me to buy a horse for you ?’ “ ‘No; I want to arrange about your policy. ’ “ ‘What do you want to arrange about it? Isn’t it all right?’ “ ‘Yes, as long as you stay in this country. But if you go down to Ken tucky we’ll have to advance the rate until you come back. ’ “‘Well, what in began the policy holder hotly, when the manager interrupted him. “ ‘Don’t fly the track, my dear fel low, ’ he said gently. ‘lt’s all right here and the rate is satisfactory to us; but, by Jove, we can’t give you the same rate and let you go to Kentucky and call men liars like you do in this sec tion. Not much! We haven’t got $lO,- 000 policies to give away like that, and you oughtn’t to expect it.’ ”—Wash ington Star. WASHINGTON IRVING. He Was an Utter Failure as an After Dinner Speaker. Washington Irving was not a ready after dinner speaker. The author of “American Bookmen” says that he shunned public appearances. Yet when Dickens came to New York, in 1842, Irving could not escape presiding at the great dinner in his honor. , They had already become friends through correspondence, for Irving’s delight in Little Nell had to be expressed in a letter to the author, and Dickens, in his enthusiastic response, had said: “ ‘Diedrich Knickerbocker’ I have worn to death in my pocket, and yet I should show you his mutilated carcass with a joy beyond expression. ” The night of the public dinner came, and Irving’s dread of the introductory Bpeech kept him murmuring throughout the repast, “I shall certainly break down.”- c At the proper time he rose to his feet; began bravely, but could only ut ter a few sentences, and ended by tak ing refuge in the announcement of the toast: “Charles Dickens, the guest of the nation.” The applause was generous, and Ir ving took his seat. “There!” he said. “I told you I should break down, and I have done it!” Later, while on his way to Madrid, he found himself called upon at the dinner of the Literary fund in London to respond to the toast, “Washington Irving and American literature.” All he could say in acknowledgment of an enthusiastic reception was: “I beg to return you my very sincere thanks.” One Englishman at the table was heard to make the laconic comment, “Brief!” “Yes,” said another beside him, “but you can tell the gentleman in the very tone of his voice.” Agaimt Foot Binding. The empress dowager of China has always taken a firm stand against the practice of foot binding, possibly be cause the Mantchoo race, from which she comes, do not compress the feet of their girl babies as do the mothers in south ern China. The Mantcboos are of larger stature than the Chinese of the southern provinces, while their mentality corre sponds with their physique. The feet of the empress herself are of the normal size. She has just shown herself to boa frugal mind by ordering a gown of which she had tired to be made into curtains. The material, which cost $125 a yard, was white silk brocade and had brilliant flowers, birds and foliage in relief. Supreme Court Sustains the Foot-Eane Ttarie Mark. Justice Laugblin, in Supreme Court, Buffalo, has ordered a permanent injunc tion, with costs, and a full accounting of sales, to issue against Paul B. Hudson, the manufacturer of the foot powder called “Hr. Clark’s Foot Powder,” and also against a retail dealer of Brooklyn, re straining them from making or selling the Dr. Clark’s Foot Powder, which is declared in the decision of the court, an imitation and infringement of “Foot-Ease,” the powder for tired, aching feet to shake into your shoes, now so largely advertised and sold all over the country I Allen 8. Olm sted, of Le Roy, New York, is the owner of the trade mark “Foot-Ease,” and he is the lirst individual who ever advertised a foot powder extensively over the country. He will send a sample free to anyone who writes him for it. The decision in this case iipholds his trademark and renders all parties liable who frauduently attempt to profit by the extensive “Foot-Ease” adver tising, in placing upon the market a spur ious and similar appearing preparation, labeled and put up in envelopes and boxes like “Foot-Ease. Similar suits will be brought against others who are now in fringing on the Foot-Ease trademark and common law rights. Modern Science Recognizes RHEUMATISM &s a Disease of the Blood There is & popular ide& th&t this disease is- C4used by exposure to cold, and that some localities are infected with it more than others Such conditions frequently promote the development of- the disease, but from the fact that this ailment runs in certain families, it is shown to be hered itary, and consequently a disease of* the blood. Among the oldest and best known residents of Bluffs, 111., is Adam Vangundy. He has always been prominently identified with the interests of that place. He was the' first President of the Board of Trustees, and for r. long time has been a Justice of the Peace. He says : "I had been a suf lerer of rheumatism for a number of years and the pain at times was very intense. I tried all the proprietary medicines I could think or hear of, but received no relief. “I finally placed my case with several physicians and doctored with them for some time, but they failed to do me any good. Finally, with my hopes of relief nearly exhausted I read an article regarding Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills for Pale People, which induced me to try them. I was anxious to get rid of the terrible disease and bought two boxes of the pills, I began using them about March, 1897. After I had taken two boxes I was com- . pletely cured, and the pain has never returned. I think it is the best medi- | cine I have ever taken, and am willing at any time to testify to its good . merits.”— Bluffs (III.) Times. Way Up In It." The fair young girl looked at the gilded clock on the mantel. “I don’t want to hurry you, Mr Slowgo, ” she sweetly explained as she met his questioning look, “but the fact is it is almost time for ma to come home from the club. And I just want to say this: If ma says, ‘I move we adjourn,’ don’t you attempt to lay it on the table, or to raise a point of or der, or anything else that’s foolish, be cause you might as well understand right here and now that ma’s simply a howling Jim dandy when it comes to the rules of parliamentary procedure, and don’t you hesitate to recollect it I’ Cranky Vessels. Even the best designers never know how their ships will turn out when completed. They may break all records for speed, or they may be so slow as to be entirely useless—a mere waste of money. Years ago two mud barges were built at San Francisco, exactly alike, con structed from one design. One of them was quite commonplace, but the other raced every barge in the bay and beat them all; raced every yacht on the Pa cific coast and beat them. She was so fast that yachts were built on her lines, but turned out mere barges for sloth. Nobody could see how this craft differed from her crawling sisters or from the yachts. In 1851 the America went to Cowes, England, and raced for a prize cup. She won that trophy, and then an Eng lishman bought her and improved her hull, stiffening it with knees through out. After that she lost every race. “ Better Be Wise Than Rich.” Wise people are also rich when they know a perfect remedy for all annoying dis eases of the blood, kidneys, liver and bowels .
