G Mothers Jire Helped THEIR HEALTH RESTORED HiPDlnttt of Thouitndi f Homt Dm to lydli E. Plnkham's Vuttabli Cssv pound and Un. Plafctw'a Advloi. A devoted mother seems to listen to every cult of duty exeeptinjr the su preme one that tells her to gntrd her health, nd before she realises it some derangement of the female organs haa manifested itself, and nervousness and Irritability tuke the place of happi ness ana ainiauiuiy. Mrs.Ph.Hoffman Tired, nervous and irritable, the mother is unfit to care for her chil dren, and hercondition ruins the child's disposition and reaeta upon herself. The mother should not be blamed, as she no doubt is suffering with, buck ache, headache, bearing-down painsor displacement, making life a burden. Lydia E. 1'inkham's Vegetable Com pound is the unfailing cure for this condition. It strengthens the female organs and permanently cures alb dis placements and irregularities. Such testimony as the following should convince women of its value : Dear Mrs. Pinkham : " I want to tell you how much pood Lydia E. Finkham's Vegetable Compound has done me. I suffered for eight years with ovarian troubles. I was nervous, tired nnd ir ritable, and it did not seem as though I could stand it any longer, as I had Bve children to care for. Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound was recommended and it hns en. tirely cured me. I cannot thank you enough for vour letter of advice and for what Lydia E Pinkham's Vegetable Compound h done forme.

Tms has brought to light his indictment in Vermont and New Hampshire for complicity in a scheme which, on a small scale, rivals the famous Fads and Fancies In New York. It is al leged that he wrote to Vermont legis lators promising them complimen tary notices In a book for $25. He se cured a considerable sum of money and then vanished. He was fined $300. The indictment by the New Hamp shire district was for offenses cover ing about three years. Followlna- the recent report on county Jail by the Rutland county grand Jury, Superintendent u. Morgan of tha house of correction, which includes the county Jail, states that for years he has realized the need of new quarters for Jail prison ers and has frequently made recom mendations for such quarter to vari ous investigating legislative commit tees, but not the slightest attention has ever been paid to his words. The present county Jail was built in 189. its purpose being to accommodate a handful of prisoners who were shut up there In the day. time but passed their nights in house of correction cells. With the increase of prisoners conditions have become worse In ev ery way from year to year and the cells in the house of correction being filled. Superintendent Morgan had to nut ud bunks In the Jail room In or der to give sleeping room to prisoners. The only relief In sight now is an ap nmnriatlon by the state for a new Jail and as the legislature does not meet until next fall, conditions win probably remain practically s they now are for another Tear. tltlDAY, SKITEMHElt THE FLORAL HALL EXHIBIT ART, MUSIC AND EDUCATION THf PRIME FACTORS.
