eral doctors but none
seemed to give me
any relief. Every
month the painswere
intense in both sides,
and made me so
weak that I had to
go to bed. At last
a friend recommen-
ded Lydia E. Pink-
I ham's Vegetable
Compound to me and I tried it at once
and found much relief. After that I
had no pains at all and could do my
housework and shopping the same
as always. For years I have praised
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-

and shall always recommend it as a wo-
man's friend. You are at liberty to use

Change of Life is one of the most
critical periods of a woman's existence.
Women everywhere should remember
that there is no other remedy known to

this trying period as Lydia E. Pinkham'i

Excellent Whan Eaten as Jam or

Crabapples make a most delicious
Jelly which has only to be tasted once
to be proclaimed thoroughly delect-
able. The wild apples should be gath-
ered while firm and fresh, but not
quite ripe enough to fall from the
trees. Each one should be wiped with
a damp cloth to cleanse it. They
should then be weighed and put in a
big preserving pan with one pint of
water to every pound and a half of
fruit. I^et them boil till quite tender,
then strain through a colander, using
a flat wooden spoon to pulp them
through. When the liquid is extract-
ed measure it and to each pint allow
three-quarters of a pound of sugar.
Cook juice and sugar together, boiling
for 20 minutes. Remove the scum
and pour the jelly Into small pots.
It is very nice eaten by itself as jam,
but can be used for garnishing, as it
is of a pretty red color. It Is also ex-
cellent with roast mutton or game
and makes a capital substitute for red
Crabapples in sirup Is a very pretty
dessert dish, and although the apples
take some time to prepare they are
worth doing, especially as they keep
some time when bottled.
The sirup must be made with two
parts sugar to one of water, the in-
gredients being brought to the boil
and allowed to cook gently till a fair-
ly strong thread can be made by dip-
ping the fingers in the sirup and pull-
ing a little. When the sirup Is ready
drop In the crabapples and bring gen-
tly to the boil; remove the pan from
the Are, skim off the scum, lift out
the fruit, put into an earthenware pan
and cover with the sirup. Let the
fruit soak for 24 hours. N'ow drain
off the sirup, add a little more sugar
and water and repeat the process. Do
this at intervals of 24 hours till the
sirup turns to a pink jelly and the
crabapples are saturated to the core
with sugar. They must be handled
very carefully so as not to break the
skins. The crabapples can b<* used
at once or bottled and used as re-
Cranberry jelly la almost indispen-
sable with venison and lends piquancy
to mutton, too. The cranberries
should be well washed and the dark-
colored berries picked out. as these
r.poil the color of the jelly. The fol-

Boil a pint of water and a pound
and a half of berries together for ten
minutes, then rub through a colander.
Return to the preserving pan, add
three-quarters of a pound of sugar ana

When elderberries are ripe enough
to gather a very delectable chutney
can be made as follows:
Ingredients—One pound of elderber-
ries, three ounces of raisins, half a
pint of vinegar, a teaspoonful of salt,
six cloves, a little cayenne and mace
(just a dust of each), one onion, two
ounces of sugar and one-quarter of au
ounce of ground ginger.
Method—Run the berries through a
sieve, then pound together the onion
and the rest of the ingredients, having
stoned the raisins' first. Put all to-
gether In an enameled saucepan and
boil for eight minutes. Take the pan
off Are, put the lid on and leave till
the contents are cold. When cold

DANDRUFF AND FALLING HAIR
P. O. Box .1, Wanego, W. Va.—"I was
troubled with dandruff, falling hair!
and itching scalp for two or three j
years. It was so bad at times my
coat collar would be covered so I was
ashamed to go In company. It itched
bo my head was irritated and pimples
would come on my scalp. My hair
came out badly; it became thin and
dry, so dry that it seemed as though
there was no life In it.
"Remedies failed to do me any good.
About a year ago I saw the advertise-
ment of Cuticura Soap and Ointment

"Bloody Chasm" That Separated Na-
tionalists and Ulaterltee Might
Have Been Bridged.
As all the world knows, interna-
tional war has proved a great concil-
iator in Ireland. As a contributor to
the Itystander says, you cannot give
much attention to the dismemberment
of the empire when you are not cer-
tain whether you will have an em-
pire to dismember.
There Is a geniality about the Na-
tionalist volunteer that makes you
know that he would rather fight some
one else—Germany in this case- than
(lister. A few stories are current
that help to show how very ripe Ire-
land was for conciliation. Not long
ago a company of Nationalist volun-
teers, passing a company of Ulster-
men, and being (uncertain as to the
customary etiquette between deadly
enemies—saluted. In a northern dis-
trict there was only one field suitable
for drilling, and as the two opposition
armies wanted It, the owner began
bidding them against each other.
Northern cannlness asserted itself.
The commanding officer of one battal-
ion approached the enemy, and they
agreed to rent the field In common,
and use It on alternate days!
A third anecdote relates that while
some Ulster volunteers were drilling
a Nationalist was Been sitting on a
fence watching them. When he was
questioned by ail l'lsterman he ex-
plained that his own company had
misluld their rifles and could not
drill; "but," he added, "we were wait-
ing to see If we could get the loan of
yours whin you've done with them."
MODERN WAR IS MERCIFUL
Under Existing Conditions the Wound-
ed Are Given a Fair Chance
to Recover to Health.
A general lmpreBBion is that with
powerful weapons of great preNsion
greater loss of life and greater pain
are caused. That view Is almost cer-
tainly Inaccurate. The modern bul-
let, hays the Scotsman, uulesB it is of
the soft-nosed type. Is on the whole
merciful, and either kills outright or
gives its victim a fair chance of re-
covery. It does not, as a rule, muti-
The ambulance corps was practical-
ly unknown 60 years ago, and not
only is aid brought more rapidly to
the wounded, but It is far more ef-
fective than In the pre-Lister days.
Rapidity of conveyance has increased
beyond all comparison. In the pres-
ent war It 1b true to say that in man;
cases men have been lying In a Brit-
ish hospital within 24 hours of
receiving their wounds. If the
risk of being hit Is greater, the
chances of recovery from injury have
been immensely Increased.

Representative Bacon of Georgia

formation which costs the German
army thousands of lives.
"Close formation," he said, "was

our modern machine guns, shooting
myriads of bullets a minute, it is a
useless. It 1b a cruel waste of life."
"But," said a German-American,

can afford to—er—to lose—"
