•Russians Are Born Linguists.
The marvelous memory and aptitude
fbr learning possessed by Russian.; aro
thown by the rapidity with which they
lequire languages. It Is said that a
Russian will learn Chinese In six
months. As for Kiislish. they aepiire
it with ease In a few weeks. They
think no more of acquiring a new lan

Proved Beyond a Doubt.
Middlesex, N Y., July 2o.—(Spe-^
eial.)—That Rheumatism can be cured
has been proved beyond a doubt, by
Mrs. Betsey A. dawson, well known
hero. That Mrs. Clawson had Rheu-
matism and had it bad, all hfli ac-
quaintances know. They also know
ahe is now cured. IJodd s Kidney Pills
did It. Mrs. Clawson tells the story o*
her cure as follows:
"I was an invalid for most fiv«
years caused by Inflammatory Rheu-
matism, helpless two-thirds of the
time. The first year 1 could not do
as much as a baby could do; then I
rallied a little bit and then a relapse.
Then a year ago the gout set In my
hands and feet, i suffered untold
agony and in August, 1903. when my
husband died 1 could not ride to the
I only tool; two boxes of Dodd •
Kidney Pills and lit two weeks 1
could wait on myself and saw my own
wood. 1 dug my own potatoes and
gathered my own gvden last fall.
Dodd's Kidney I'ills cured me."
Rheumatism is caused by uric acid
in the blood. Dodd's Kidney Pills put
the Kidneys in shape to take all thff
uric acid out of the blood.
Wears Large Shoes.
There is a New York barber who
<ears a number 12 shoe. Ho was a
sergeant in the German army, noted
(or his stability. Ho has a brother in
the old country whose foot is so big
lhat no ready made shoe can be found
to fit him. When he needs a new pair
)f shoes he buys a side of leather and
tends for a shoemaker, who fashions
lis footgear at home. Ilia foot is the
largest iu all Germany, about number
17 in size.
Rail Rate Oddity.
It costs nearly $2 more to go on an
ursion train from Berlin to llasle,
Switzerland, than from Basle to Ber
!i:i. The difference is due to the fact
that in one direction the baggage is
free, but not in the other; wherefore
a reduction is made in the li.ttf cas
in tho price of the ticket.

A man who thought his race was

time they expressed a desire to live
up to the original arbitration agree-
ment, signed a week ago, which pro-
vided for the reinstatement of the
striking butchers inside of forty-five
days and for the arbitration of all
grievances, the packers would be will-
ing to renew the agreement.
The contention of the packers is
that this agrement is still in force,
and as they are unwilling to offer any
further concsssions to the strikers
they say a renewal of the peace ne-
gotiations with the hope of securing
better terms would be tisjless. The j
labor leaders say that when the
the second strike

Lydia E- Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
" Dear Mrs. Piskham :—I suffered misery for several years. My back
ached and I had bearing down pains, and frequent headaches. I would oftea
wake from a restful sleep in such pain and misery that it would be hours l.efor*
I could close my eyes again. I dreaded the long nights and weary days. 1
could do no work. 1 consulted different physicians hoping to get relief, but,
finding that their medicines did not cure me, I tried Lydia. E. Pinkuam s
Vegetable Compound, as it was highly recomended to me. I am glad that
I did so, for I soon found that it was the medicine for my case. Very soon I
was rid of every ache and pain and restored to perfect health. I feel splendid,
have a fine appetite, and have gained in weight a lot." — Miss Fraxkik Orser,
14 Warrenton St., Boston, Mass.
Surely you cannot wish to remain weak, sick nnd discouraged,
and exhausted with each day's work. Some derangement of the
feminine organs is reponsible for this exhaustion, following any
kind of work or effort. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
will help you just as it has thousands of other women.
The case of firs. Lennox, which follows, proves this.
" Dear Mu.«. Tinkham : — Last winter X
broke down suddenly and had to seek the
advice of a doctor. 1 felt sore all over, with
a pounding in my head, and a dizziness which
I had never experienced before. I bad a
miserable appetite, nothing tasted good, and
gradually my her.lth broke down completely.
The doctor said I lind female weakness, but,
although I took his medicine faithfully, I
found no relief.
After two months 1 decided to try what
a change would do for me, and as Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound was
strongly recommended to me I decided to
try it. " Within three days I felt better, my
appetite returned, and I could sleep. In
another week I was able to sit up part of
the day, and in ten days more I was well.
My strength had returned, 1 gained fourteen
pounds, and felt better and stronger than
cknowledge its merits. Very sincerely yours.
