LEADI1TG TOVEESITY. Demonstrated tlio Power of l > r. IVilllams Pink Pills to KcHtoro Vigor to Shat tered 3crve . Mrs. Leander lanewifo of the minis ter of the Christian Church , of No. 201C I street , South Oniahu , Neb. , tells hovi her daughter has beeu enabled to resume her professional vrork as a teacher afto : suffering for nearly three years from se vere nervous prostration : " "When shevas passing from girl hood \vomanhood"says Mrs. Lauo , "she suffered greatly from difficulties peculiar to her sex. The physician did not help her , but a few boxes of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills brought about the perfect regulation of her system. " While she had escaped from one grave trouble , she unfortunately began to overwork , first as a student and then as a teacher in a largo Iowa institution for orphan boys. She enjoyed her work and was very enthusiastic , but the strain finally told on her. She became pale , weak , nervous , unable to sleep ; she had no appetite and she suffered from se vere headaches. Then came a complete breakdown and her work had to be given up. " In this emergency we again tried Dr. "Williams' Pink Pills. Improvement came afc first slowly and wo sometimes doubted whether she was gaining , but we noticed that whenever she stopped taking the pills she fell back , and when ever she resumed the use of them she revived and so wo kept up the treatment until she recovered her usual health and was able to take a position in one of our universities where she is happily at work. My mother , my daughter and myself have a well-founded confidence in the merits of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Bud arp always ready to recommend them. " TM * is simply oiie inOrG proof that these pills seek disease at its source and affect fundamental cures. They cure various diseases because these have a common origin in impaired blood or nerves. They put the entire system in a healthy condition.because they intro duce vigor that is distributed to every part. They arrest physical decay when it seems inevitable and find a road to restoration when the doctor misses it. They are sold by all druggists through out the world. He Is Always Shy.

An interesting llttlo treasure hunt is causing some excitement in a Stafford shire village , says the London Mail. Tiie treasure hunters are not rushing round with surveyors' chains and pick- axes , but they'search very patiently and very persistently in old boots and stockings , pieces of newspapers , behind wall paper and wainscoting and in black bottles. They arc searching for the accumulated wealth of one Joseph AtUvood , who , with his brother , kept the Vine inn at Delph , Brierley Hill. Joseph died not long ago , and his brother being unable to transact the business it was transferred. The bro'/hers AtUvood had curious ideas as to the conduct of their busi- n ss and the employment of capital ideas which would commend them selves to no self-respecting economist. Whou the elder brother died there was a hunt for the money which it was known he had saved. In one of the rooms , which had not been opened for fifteen years , 500 in gold was found , sto'.ved away in corners of the room. Hundreds of silver coins were-found corked up in gin bottles and beer jars. Half a hundredweight of coppers was found hidden in nooks and cran nies , old gloves , stockings , paper bags and envelopes and rolled up in tea lead. Checks which had never been presented ; a woman's watch and a very old hunting watch were also dis covered. Altogether 600 has been found in various parts of the house. When the treasure-seekers have torn down the walls , ripped up the floors and search ed under the soot In the chimneys , claims will be pegged out ia Uie gar den. Every Walk in Life. A. A.

For a. ? time I was unable to walk at all , and every makeshift I tried and all the medicine I took had not the slightest effect.

An Invitinjj Prospect. Will Canada in the next quarter of a century take the place of the United States as the greaf wheat exporting section of the western hemisphere ? Everything points that way. In the opinion of experts the United States has reached high water mark as a K heat exporting country. The increas ing population over there has reached the point when home consumption is becoming annually greater in propor tion than the increase in wheat pro duction. As a matter of fact , wheat j production is decreasing over there as the land becomes more valuable and by reason of the demand for other forms of produce for home consump tion. It is said that the wheat crop tliis year is not more than 70 per cent j oi the crop of 1901 and much below I liie crops of 1902 and 1903. It is esti mated that this year the United States surplus for export will not be over 100,000,000 , which is less than any year since 1878 with two exceptions. Not only is this the case , but a considera ble quantity of the best Canadian wheat is being imported into Minne sota and also Chicago. All this tends to keep the price of wheat near the dollar mark , and "dol lar wheat" is the loadstone that will attract farmers to the Canadian North west , where land is.cheap and can be farmed on a wholesale basis , particu lars of which may be had from any agent of the Canadian government The reduction of American exports will have the double influence of in creasing Canadian production and keeping up the price. It constitutes a roseate prospect for this country , and needs no optimistic enthusiasm to foresee the near expansion of the Dominion into the actual position of the "granary of the empire.- t I'J.

HER ADVENTURE. j * > xvy\.i HEN the piano organ moved on nnd gave them a chance to talk again the girl with the tanned arms rearranged her cushion on the step behind her and said : "Not a single one. There were hardly any of them around the place , aivl they weren't worth while. "Two married men , " she answered , "neither of them interesting and they had their wives with them. There was a son of-the house unattached , hut he was painfully shy and wont to hod at 8 o'clock. . During the day he plowed ance to ask me. But he really wasn't so had looking and the auto was a perfectly luxurious one. 1 had visions cf myself leaning indolently hack in the cushions with the landscape shoot ing toward me and the man talking to me in impassioned tones between toots of the horn. These visions condoled me as 1 knelt on his coat in the 'lust aid helped him. "He was rather business-like about it , but I exerted my. = eif in an artless way to please and I was happy to ob serve that he soon got to doing things wrong and when the bolt was disposed of ho found something else that need ed attention. He told me his name was Wigley and that lie was staj-iiig at the hotel : for the season. Wasn't it lovely V "As soon as we were through he asked me if I wouldn't like to take a little ride. I think the look I gave him for the impertinence rather froze him. for he blushed and stammered in coherently in apology. I didn't want to discourage him , however , so I gave him a relenting glance as I turned to go and said something about papa be ing desolated for a congenial fishing companion I had mentioned that there was good tishing in the lake and that perhaps we might have the pleasure of seeing him there before the season was over. He had said that he got tired at times of automo- biling and pined for a change. 'Tapa came in at lunch and said he'd just found that the Corbyns were staying up at the hotel Mr. Corbyn is one of his oldest friends , you know and that we would drive over to the bay that afternoon and dine with them at the hotel and perhaps stay for the porch hop. "I had never met this Mr. Corbyn before. He was a perfectly lovely old man and his wife was a darling. I made violent love to both of them , and in the course of my remarks I con fessed to a passion for automobiling. Papa had said that the old gentleman was a fiend on the subject but I did not know that he had his machine along with him. " 'We've just about time for a little forty-mile spin before dinner , my dear , ' he said 'two hours clear. If you like , we'll go. ' r "lie bustled off and in about five minutes he came back , carrying a coat and a mask for me.

" corn or something. I got him to drive me to town once , and all I could get out of him was , 'Yes , nia'ain , ' and 'No , ma'am. ' I told him how well he drove and asked him if he could drive with one hand. 'No , ma'am , ' he said , 'not this horse. ' And I can't feel sure even now that I wasn't snubbed. "Oh , of course , you wouldn't have said such a thing. You would have done anything to break the monotony of that awful place. What papa sees In it I can't think. Nothing but trees and fields and roads and hedges and the little pond of a lake where nobody ever comes. If we had been able to get a buggy and drive around a little I might have stood it , but all the horses were busy on the farm and papa said he wanted me to ramble around on my own feet for a change. "It was the same way about the ho tel at the bay. . I wanted to go there. There were some nice people at the hotel and some fun. But no. Papa Baid I had enough foolishness of that sort in town. "You'll promise never to breathe a word if I tell you ? Well , there will be only you six who know it , so if It then gets out I shall know whom to blame for it. I did have one little excitement. No , it wasn't a flirtation. I didn't flirt a little bit. I never do. Only I was hoping something would happen so much and wondering if something wouldn't happen when I saw him come exploding along. Of course not. What would he hare to laugh about ? He was in an automo bile. Well , I was reaching up for a branch of elderberry at the roadside. It's a beautiful pose if one has decent arms. "He stopped almost directly and got out and began fussing , at the thing with a wrench. I was busy with the elderberry. As soon as he got up he looked straight at me. I didn't take any notice , of course. I thought it was rather rude of him. Well , ho wasn't so bad looking. " 'I beg pardon , ' he said. "Goodness , how my heart fluttered ! I had been out on that miserable road a dozen times hoping , hoping and hoping. And now here was my chance. I looked at him pleasantly and inquir ingly. " 'Could I get you to help me a mo ment , please ? ' he asked , rather gruf fly. "There's a blamed nut here that I want to tighten and it twists the bolt. If you could hold the other side I could use both hands , you see. ' " 'With pleasure , ' I said , sweetly. I thought he nrjs have plenty of assur- And I was glad afterward that I did , for when the automobile spurted up to the veranda the chauffeur who drove it and who touched his hat re spectfully to Cr.

"Well-Known Device lay Become of Great Utility. Like the trolley lines which run far out into rural districts and bring many small hamlets into close communica tion with great cities ; like the rural free delivery of mail , with its new facilities for the enjoyment of post- office service for getting the news of the worid , and for traffic of the kind which used to be very inconvenient for farmers , the windmill promises much more than it has already given the agricultural districts of the United States , says the Cleveland ! Leader. In this country and in Europe recent ex periments in the use of wind power for generating electricity for lighting houses and barns and operating farm machinery are full of interest and sug gest great advances in the same direc tion within the next few years. In parts of the West where Irrigation is often needed to supplement the uncer tain and sometimes Inadequate rain fall , big windmills are used for pump ing water from wells hi to Irrigating ditches in the driest months , and the same mills generate power enough for electric motors to light buildings and to cut feed and do other work of like nature. To get more power is only a ques tion of more windmills. To insure an adequate supply of electricity for light ing purposes and for operating farm machinery is a matter of storage bat teries. So far these experiments are not for poor mou to undertake , but the rich are making tests which promise ultimately to make the application of wind-generated electric power to the wants of American rural life one of the most important additions to the pleasures and comforts of the farm.

PINKHAH : Gradual loss of strength and nerve force told me something was radically wrong with me. I had severe shooting pains throught the pelvic organs , cramps and extreme irritation com pelled me to seek medical advice. The doctor said that I had ovarian trouble and ulceration , and advised an operation. I strongly objected to this and decided to try Lydia E. Pinklutni'fi Vegetable Compound. I soon found that my judgment was correct , and that all the good things said about this medicine were true , and day by day I felt less pain and increased appetite. The ulc vofn soon healed , and the other complications disappeared and in elev < jeks I was once more strong and vigorous and perfectly well.

"DEAR MRS. PINKITAM : It seems to me that all the endorsements that I have read of the value of Lydia E. Pinkham's Compound do not express one-half of the virtue the great medicine really possesses. I know that it saved my life and I want to give the credit where it belongs. I suf fered with ovarian trouble for five years , had three operations and spent hundreds of dollars on. doc tors and medicines but this did not cure me after all. " However , what doctors and medicines failed to do , Lydia Pinklmm's Vegetable Corn- have been spared all the pain and expense that fruitless operations cost me. If the women who are suffering , , and the doctors do not help them , will try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege table Compound , they will not be disappointed with the results. " Miss CIARA M.
