St. Louis Woman Relieved by
Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg- |
St Louis, Mo.—"I was bothered
with cramps and pains every month and
had backarhe and
had to go to bed as I
could not work. My
mother and my
whole family always
took Lydia K. Pink-
Compound for such
troubles and they
induced me to try it
and it has helped me
very much. I don't
have cramps any
more, and 1 can do
my housework all through the month.

Mrs. Delia Sciiolz, 1412 Salisbury
Street, St. Louis, Mo.
Just think for a moment. Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has
been in use for nearly fifty years. It is
prepared from medicinal plants, by the
utmost pharmaceutical skill, and supe-
rior methods. The ingredients thus
combined in the Compound correct the
conditions which cause such annoying
symptoms as had been troubling Mrs.
Scholz. The Vegetable Compound exer-
cises a restorative influence of the? most
desirable character, correcting the trou-
ble in a gentle but efficient manner.
This is noted, by the disappearance, one
after another, of the disagreeable
"Only One Thing

THE relief that Dr. Kind's New
Discovery gives from stubborn old
colds, and onrushing new ones, grippe

it the standard remedy it is today.
Time-tried for fifty years and never
more popular than today. No harmful
Vou will soon notice the relief in
loosened phlrgm and eased cough.
Always reliable, and go<x] for the
whole family. Has a convincing, heal-
ing taste with all its good inedi< inal
qualities. At all druggists, 60 cents.

Corea, (lie first part of 111:1 inliind
Asia to come under Japanese control,
Vas in large part reu-ived its material
from western civilization at second
hand through Japan. And in spite of
the American type conches ami even
dining cars that are now drawn in
modern express trains over heavily bal-
! lusted railroads, and the trolley cars,
telegraph lines and electric power sta-
tions that are encountered by the vis-
itors to the chief cities. Corea in ninny
ways still preserves the quaintness of
its "Hermit Kingdom" days.
j It was only in ISS'J, a generation
after Commodore Perry opened up I
Japan, that Corea, or Chosen, by
making n treaty with the I'nited States, j
gave up olllcially its policy of cxclu- j
slon. Foreigners took up their resi-
' deuce with olllclal sanction at Cheinul- '
po, the seaport of tin* capital, Seoul. I
Kven with this foothold, however, the
i unwelcome visitors pushed their way
but slowly Into other parts of the king-
dom; and. ns late us 1807 only n rela-
tively small portion had been visited
by white men. Now Japanese Influ-
ence and Japanese explorers have gone
everywhere in the "Land of Morning
Calm," and only the wilderness along
the Manchurian border remains rela-
European clothing is no longer a curl-
' osity in Seoul, but still the old garb
i f the natives greatly predominates.
The first feature to strike the visitor,
In fact, Is likely to he this matter of
clothing. The universal adoption of
while the singular hats, the footgear,
all strike the note of qunintttoss. White
clothing is the emblem of mourning In
Corea, as It Is in Japan and China;
the mourning period Is three years. On
the o' t-asion of the death of a royal
personage the entire population was
required to put on white. This cus-
tom Is said to be accountable for the
people having adopted white clothing
for ordinary wear, that they might be
ready for the inevitable when ii should I
come, either In their own or in the
Queer "Pill Box Hats."
The ordinary hat-> of the Core:in nu n '
shaped in general like American stiff !
straws, but with high small crowns j
which cause them to >it on the top of
the head as though adults were wear-l
ing the hats of children. To add to '
the bi/anv appearance, these little hats j
are tied in place under the chin with j
plain black tape. .Men of wealth often
wear a loop of beads, the ends at i

Seoul an Interesting City.
Seoul, with Its population of over
800,000 dominates tae cities and towns
nf Chosen, and has only one competi-
tor in size, Ping-Yang, with a popula-
tion of about 1 000. The main streets
of Seoul are wide and well laid out.
The stores generally are but one story,
hardly deserving the title of buildings.
The means of conveyance over the
roads, for the most part unpaved, Is
rickshaws, drawn by boys who are
swift and tireless.
The street scenes of Seoul offer great
variety for the kodak, the burden-hear-
ers of both sexes furnishing a con-
stant change of seeire; most of them
being willing victims, entirely satisfied
with a small tip. At the wood mar-
ket on one side of the main street the
patient steer is seen reclining under
the weight of a load of logs which
would cause a wagon to groan, and one
wt nders how he will ever regain his
footing when his master makes a sale
and the time conies to deliver the
iroods. These animals appear to
thrive under their burden bearing, be-
ing sleek and well kept.
How They Make Bread.
The native bread of Seoul does not
seem very attractive to foreigners
after they have seen the process by
which It is made. However, if its ex-
cellence was alone dependent on the
thoroughness with which it Is kneaded,
the bread which "mother used to make"
would suffer by comparison. After mix-
ing. the dough is placed on a board In
the road in front of the little bakeshop.
Then two stalwart Coreans proceed to
pound it with great mauls. It Is not
claimed that the quality of the bread Is
improved by the addition of impurities
In the way of Insects and dust which
naturally result from the open-air treat-
ment, but if one objects to eating it,
a native will quote a proverb which,
being interpreted, runs: "lie who
would enjoy bis food should not look
over the kitchen wall"- a maxim not
without force In countries occidental.
A visit to the imperial palace brings
up mental pictures of more golden
days in Corea. The buildings and
grounds are extensive; a handsome pa-
u oda standing on a small island is sur-
rounded I v a lotus pond, a wealth of
trees adding to the beauty of the
place. IMiring the reign of the old
emperor, bis fear <>f assassination was
s. great that it is said 800 bedrooms
in the palace were kept constantly in
readiness for him, no one knowing
which one he would occupy on any
Protected by a Great Wall.
One of the most enjoyable trips from
Seoul is bv rickshaw past the Peking
or Independent gate through a pic-
turesque road winding among the
mountains. The construction of the
great wall of Corea at this point ap-
pears a marvel of engineering skill, so
seemingly inaccessible is this moun-
tain fastness. proceeding about two
miles, one passes tin* water-gate,
where the w '1 er.-ses the river and
where In time of attack the Iron gates
in these great arches were let down
to protect the city. The view of this
crossing is ore of the finest in Corea.
Another ride of three miles takes
the traveler to the White Huddha. In
the solitude of this wilderness, far
from the highway, beside a clear moun-
tain stream, stands a great boulder,
on the face of which, carved In relief,
is the sitting figure of Buddha.
Seoul possesses what is believed to
be flic third largest bell In the world.
In shape an-f general outline It is of
Japanese type. In fact, the Coreans
claim that the bells of I >ai Nippon
We e modeled after those <>f Corea.
The climate of Corea i- not very
different from that In similar latitudes
In the lilted States, from New York
to North Carolina. Structurally the
houses are interesting, for the Coreans

the smoke and heat are drawn be-
neath the house, keeping the rooms
