DYSPEPSIA OF WOMEN.
' Mrs. E. B. Bradshaw, of Guthrie, OkIaM cured of a severe case by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. A great many women suffer with a form of indigestion or dyspepsia which does not heem to yield to ordinary medical treatment. While the symp toms seem to be similar to those of ordinary indigestion, yet the medi cines universally prescribed do not seem to restore the patient's normal condition. Mrs. Pink ham claims that there is a kind of dyspepsia that is caused by derangement of the female organ ism, and which, while it causes dis turbance similar to ordinary indiges tion, cannot be relieved without a medicine which not only acts as a stomach tonic, but has peculiar uterine tonic effects as well. Thousands of testimonial let ters prove beyond question that nothing: will relieve this distress ing: condition so surely as Lydia 12. Plnkham's Vegetable Com pound.

Those who think that the Pennsyl vanla weasel cannot fight would do well not to try to argue the case with Herman Shultz. a farmer, residing over in the Wallis run district, says a Forksville (Pa.) corresuondent of the Philadelphia Record. Shultz' experi ence was with seven of the animals half-famished, ravenous creatures that fought him as desperately as wildcats. The scene of Shultz' novel battle was in a small shed in which a dozen cr mere turkeys were housed. Farm ers in that section have always been losers of fowls hecaus? the weasels nrey upon their flocks. Shultz had taken the precaution to protect the corner of his shed- in which the tur keys roosted with a cage built of close meshed wire, so that foraging animals cculd net reach the birds. This very cage, while it served effectively to nrotcct h!3 turkeys, came near being the undoing of Shultz himself. One of the ccklest rights of last winter Shultz was awakened by hear ing a terrible commotion in his turkey house. The peculiarly distressing piping of the hen turkeys told Shultz practiced ear that an enemy was in sight. Shultz went to the shed with a lantern, arming himself en rc.ute with a mixing paddle used to prepare food Tcr the pigs a hickory stick about two inches thick and eighteen inches long. When he entered the shed the rays of the lantern as he held it alolt disclosed a half dozen or more weas els scouting about over the wire frame. Shultz struck one of the weasels with his cudgel, crippling it a little. Instantly the little animal attacked him like a furious cat, squealing, bit His Uncle Job's Business Head Incident in Boy's Life That Caused Him to Have Lasting Admiration for His Relative Comes to His Memory ' Usually About This Time of the Year. "Along about this time o' year," said the man with the loud cigar butt. "I always think of my Uncle Job Fill ister and the big business head he had. The preponderance of the business idea in my Uncle Job was great. 1 think of it most about this time o' year because I lived with him on the farm when 1 was a boy, and he said to me one day: "'Absalom. I s'pose you know them rarly Haters is to be planted to-day. 1 guess we'd better get at 'em.' "I knew all about that 'tater plant ing well enough, but I had just dug a lot o' fishworms and was all ready to go down to the creek to try the trout. So I said: "'Yes, Uncle Job. Hut the trout are biting tremendous, m folks are saying.' " 'Is that so?' said Uncle Job. bland ly. 'Well, then, my boy, I s'pose you've been digging fish worms?" "'Yes, uncle,' said I, feeling good. "'And you've got your pole and line all fixed ready, too. I s'pose?' said he. "'Yes, uncle,' said J. and I could just as good as see myself on the creek that minute and feel the trout biting. "Creek ain't too hiidi, think?' said Uncle Job. "Never was in better shape for fish ing, everybody says,' said I. "'Well,' said Uncle Job, thinking it Don't Bet on New York Jeweler Gives Good Advice to Those Sportively Inclined The Best Timepieces Are Liable to Develop Unsuspected Weaknesses at Any Time. In the windows of nearly all the big retail jewelry stores downtown are chronometers. In fact, tit- chronom eter has become the most valuable part of the window display. Two prosperous-looking men, after comparing their watches the other day with one of these chiononi' tei s, were seen to go inside th store and a few minutes later to reappear. As they did so one of the men passed a roll of bills to the other. Then tl-..'j laughed, shook hands and separated. The jeweler stood inside and smiled. "It's funny," he said to a Sun re porter, "how many people there are In this world who have the betting fever and how foolishly, they risk their money. Those two men are samples. Before the day Is over I've no doubt half a dozen more will lie in to get me to decide similar bets. Every day we have some. "What did they bet on? Why, on the nearness of their watches to the correct time. Of course, two men who make such a bet have he betting About Lott Bankbooks. "Iost bankbooks are frequently advertised for," said the President of a prominent savings bank, ' any they are generally found by some means or another.

They wa't for the finder lo bring the book to the name and address written inside it, and receive a dollar or two reward. If the finder la well off he sends the book to the ing and scratching, Before Shult could .seize it a half dozen more of the creatures leaped from the cage full upon him to the help of their squeal ing comrade. Shultz dropped his lan tern, but fortunately it did not go out, then with his weapon he bngan battle with the ravenous psts as best he could.. Hut all this while .he was be ing bitten on hands and face and neck. He feared most for his eyes, for the animals appeared to be doing their best to reach these. One ear was torn. Shultz. after a battle which ht thinks must have lasted ten minutes, succeeded in killing rive of the weas els with his club. Then the other, evidently frightened nt the lessening forces, attempted to escape, But in this pame Shultz had the best of it. In his floundering and dancing about he had accidentally overturned a barrel oi potatoes and the-e spilled out upon the floor, ccrnulidely shutting up the hele in the boards through which the weasels had gained entrance. The lantern furnished enough light to fight by and Shultz after naif an hour ex terminated the whole eoleny of weas els. After tne fight was over, besides smarting with innumerable bites of the animals. Shultz found that tne odor in the shed something like that of a skunk was affecting him and for five hours alterward he was the sickest man In all the Wallis run region. He got his wife up to make tea. but the first thing she did when she got down stairs was to make him go out in the cold nignt and leave his offensive out er garments to cool off in the night winds. over. 'I s'pose it ain't going to make much difference if only one of us plants 'taters to-day.' " 'Not a bit,' said I, 'if it doesn't make any difference to you." "'No, it don't' said Uncle Job. 'No difference to me, at all. You're sure you've got worms enough, though, my boy?' said he. "'Oh. plenty,' said I, starting to get my fishpole. " 'And you're sure the trout are biting good?' said Uncle Job. "'They never bit better!' said I. " 'All right, then,' said Uncle Job. 'That being the case, I guess I'll take the pole and the worms and go down to the creek and see what, luck I'll have. You just go on planting 'taters as if I wasn't here, and get in as many as you can, for it's a good day for planting,' and he took tho worms and the polo and went fishing. "I was a little set back, of course, but I couldn't help but admire the pro ixmderance of the business idea in Uncle Job. It wasn't fishing that he cared so much about. It was the get ting In of the 'taters, and you will no tice that he did not make up his mind to go fishing until he found I could get along with the planting all right. So along about this time o' year I al ways think of my Uncle Job Phillis ter and the big business head that he had." Your Watch hunch to begin with. Then they're also stuck on the watches they carry. "There was the difference of two seconds between the watches in the case you just noticed, but on that (hanged hands. I've known It to bo as high as a hundred. "The difference between any two watches is rarely less than half a sec ond. It's generally more. Put when a bet is made men generally want the jeweler to decide it and, of course, we're always willing. I guess quite a few thousands have changed hands on my decisions by this time. "A man will get a watch abroad and pay big money for it. He'll meet a friend who has bought one of the crack American watches, and if they've got the sporting instinct a bet will almost Invariably follow a com parison of the watches. "Perhaps both men have set their watches that day or the day before, and so are willing to wager all the money they've got with them, and that's often a big roll. bank and we notify the depositor.

The wings of the birds were clipped, so that they. mlgM cot fly away, and they were quartered In aa outhouse that happened to contain a mirror. The effect of the mirror on the guinea! eras hardly credible. They post themselves before It, and there, studying their reflections Intently, they stand perfectly motionless and silent for hours at a time. It Is Im possible to drive them away with shouts or hand-clappings. They must be carried forth bodily, and then, as soon as they can, they return. Nc natter how fine the weather may be the guineas remain In the outhouse, gazing at themselves In the mirror. To get them to take exercise it Is necessary to carry them forth, and then to shut up the outhouse tight.

If colored shoes are not generally worn they are popular In the army, as evidenced by recent contracts given out for the manufacturing of shoes for the members cf the United States army, says the Shoe and Leather Re porter. One contract was for 51,000 pairs of shoes, all colored, there being not a single pair of blacks in the order. In another order was included 884 pairs of colored shoes. This gives the Impression that for army wear col ored shoes are preferred. They look better for a longer period of time with reasonable care than black goods, In the opinion of the army officials. For hot weather colored shoes are viewed by sensible people as a most common sense proposition. The Fan in Europe. The fan made an almost simultane ous appearance throughout Italy and France, in England and Spain. Its most artistic flights have been achieved In France; but not even to France will Spain yield in its use of the fan as "an important weapon In the mimic warfare of coquetry and flirtation." Whether the Spanish lady Is In church or a place of amusement, whether visiting or walking, It is al ways in her hands, frequently portray ing the horrors of the bull-fight. Cor responding with these, certain French revolution fans represent Charlotte Corday carrying a dagger In one hand e.nd a fan In the other! Antiques In Negro Cabins.
