Dress inspection is to be something
of marvelous Interest If plans do not
fall. The big boss Is to look over his
society detail and will probably criti-
cize something like this:
"Here, you big boob, you've got on
square toes. Away with them even If
the pointed ones will give you corns.

women. For nearly a year, I could

Thousands of ladies have written,
like Mrs. Jones, in the past fifty years,
to tell of the benefit received from
Cardui. Such testimony, from earnest
women, surely proves the creat value
of this tonic medicine, for the diseases
peculiar to their sex.

"Toronto Star," Dec. 16th, 1910. '
The prediction Is made that before
1920 Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Al-
berta and British Columbia will have
ten million people. It is made not by
a sanguine Western journal but by
that very sober business newspaper,
the New York Commercial. It is
based upon actual observation, upon
the wheat-growing capacity of the Ca-
nadian West, and upon the prospects
of development following the build-
ing of railways. The writer shows
how the position of leading wheat
market of the world passed from
Milwaukee to Minneapolis and thence
to Winnipeg. Canada's wheat-grow-
ing belt is four times greater than
that of the United States, and only
five per cent of Canada's western agri-
cultural area Is under cultivation.
There are 170,000,000 acres of wheat
lRnds which will make these Western
Proviuces richer, more populous, more
dependable for food supplies than the
Western States can ever becomo. The
center of food supremacy will change
*o Canada, and 25 years more will
give 1 his country 40,000,000 popula-
tion west of Ontario.
All these estimates of population
are in the nature of guesses, and must
not be read too literally. Hut the.
enormous area of wheat-growing land,
the rapid construction of railways,
and the large volume of immigration
are facts which must be recognized.
They point to the production of an
ever-increasing surplus of wheat and
other cereals. However rapidly the
urban, the Industrial and commercial
population of Canada may increase,
the increase of home consumption is
hardly likely to keep pace with that
of the production of wheat; for a sin-
j gle acre of wheat will provide for the
average annual consumption of four
While production in Canada Is thus
running ahead of consumption at a
prodigious rate, consumption in the
| United States is overtaking produc-
tion, and the surplus for export is
growing smaller year by year. It Is
true that the limit of actual power to
produce wheat is as yet far away.
By methods of intensive cultivation,
such as prevail in France, the produc-
tion could be greatly Increased. Hut
with the overflowing granary of Can-
ada so close at hand, It seems likely
that our neighbors will begin to Im-
port from us, turning their own en-
ergies more largely to other forms of
It must be remembered that while
the Northern States resemble Canada
in climate and products, the resem-
blance diminishes as you go south-
ward. The wheat belt gives place to
a corn belt, and this again to semi-
tropical regions producing cotton, to-
bacco, cane-sugar, oranges and other
The man who secures a farm in
Western Canada at the present time
secures an investment better than ths
best of bond of any government or
bank. It is no unusual thing for a
farmer in Western Canada to realize
a profit of from $5 to $10 per acre.

By Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
The Chlnge of Life is the most critical period of a
woman's existence, and neglect of health at this time
Women everywhere should remember that there is no
other remedy known to medicine that will so successfully
cariy women through this trying period as Lydia L.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, made from native roots
and herbs. Here is proof:
Natick, Mass.,—"I cannot express what I
went through (ItirliiK the Chance of Life befor®
I tried Lydia K. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-
pound. I was in such a nervous condition I
could not keep still. My limbs were cold. I

that 1 had a tumor.
" t read one day of the wonderful cures made

and decided to try it, and it has made me a well

period of life. If it will help others you may publish this

ANOTHER SIMILAR CASE.
Corn wallville, N. Y.—" I have been taking
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for
so'ine time for Change of Life, nervousness, and
a tibroid growth.
" Two doctors advised me to go to the
hospital, but one day while 1 was away visi ting,,

Cornwallville, N. V., Greene Co.
The makers of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-
pound have thousands of such letters as those above —
they tell the truth, else they could not have been obtained
for love or money. This medicine is no stranger— it has
stood the test for years.
For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has been the standard remedy for
female ills. No sick woman does justice to
herself who will not try this famous medicine.
Made exclusively from roots and herbs, and
has thousands of cures to its credit.

to write her for advice. She lias
