The trouble householders everywhere
have with paint is pretty well summed
"P by our contemporary, and the
causes are about the same everywhere.
y far the most frequent cause of the
necessity for the dangerous practice
of burning old paint is the use of poor
material. The oil should be pure Z
seed and the white lead should be real

tampered with than the oil. Earthy
substances, and pulverized rock and

use ready prepared paints—the most
frequent causes of paint trouble. But
they do often buy adulterated white
lead because the property owner in-
sists on a low price and the painter
has to economize somewhere The
suggestion is therefore a good one

the subject a little, find out the name

is reliable you will get what you want

A nervous, irritable mother, often on
the verge of hysterica, is unfit to care
for children; it ruhis a child's disposi-
tion and reacts upon herself. The
trouble between children and their
mothers too often is due to the fact
that the mother has some female weak-
ness, and she is entirely unfit to bear
the strain upon her nerves that govern-
ing children involves; it is impossible
for her to do anything calmly.
The ills of women act like a firebrand
upon the nerves, consequently nine-
tenths of the nervous prostration, ner-
vous despondency, "the blues," sleep-
lessness, and nervous irritability of
women arise from some derangement
of the female organism.
Do you experience fits of depression
with restlessness, alternating with
extreme irritability? Are your spirits
easily affected, so that one minute you
laugh, and the next minute you feel
like crying ?
I)o you feel something like a ball ris-
ing in your throat and threatening to
choke you; all the senses perverted,
morbidly sensitive to light and sound ;
pain in the abdominal region, and
between the shoulders; bearing-down
pains; nervous dyspepsia and almost
continually cross and snappy?
If so, your nerves are in a shattered
condition, and you are threatened with

the world is better for nervous prostra-
tion than Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege-

well, and all nervousness has disappeared."
Sirs. Charles P. Brown, Vice-Presi-
dent of the Mothers' Club, 21 Cedar
Terrace, Hot Springs, Ark., writes:
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:
' 1 dragged throuA nine yeai-s of miser-
«, worn Out with pain and ner-
able existence, wornUht with pa
vousnea, until it seemed as though I should
fly. 1 then noticed a statement of a woman
troubled as I was, and the wonderful results
she derived from Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege-
table Compound. I decided to try it. I did so,
and at the end of three months I was a differ-
ent woman. My nervousness was all gone. I
was no longer irritable, and my husband fell
in love with mo all over again."
Women should remember that Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is
the medioine that holds the record for
the greatest number of actual cures of
female ills, and take no substitute.
