'Bealth Thus Lost I* Restored by Lydla
S. Pinkbam'a Vegetable Compound.
How mnny women do you know who
are perfectly well and strong ? We
hear every day the same story over and
over again. " I do not feel well j 1 au>
■o tired all the time t"
Miss Kate Me Donald
Wore tlmn likely you speak the same
words yourself, and no doubt you feel
far froin well. The cause may be easily
traced to some derangement of the fe-
male organs which manifests itself in
depression of spirits, reluctance to go
anywhere or do anything, backache,
tea ring-down pains] flatulency, nerv-
ousness, sleeplessness, or other fe-
These symptoms, are but warnings
that there is danger ahead, and unless
heeded a life of suffering or a serious
titration is the inevitable result.
The never- failing remedy for all these
■ymptoras is I*vdia E. Pitikhaiu's Veg-
Miss Kate McDonald of Woodbridge,
N. J,, writes:
I)esr Mrs. Finkhnm'.
" Restored health has meant so mtioh to me
that T cannot help from telling about it for
the sake uf other suffering women.
" For a longtime I suffered untold aeony
with a female trouble and irregularities,
which made me a physical wreck, ami no one
thought I would recover, but Lydia E. Pink-
bun's Vegetable Compound has entirely
cured me. and made me well and strcng, and
1 feel it my duty to tell other suffering women
what a splendid medicine it is."
For twenty-five years Mrs. Pinkham,
daughter-in-law of Lvdia E Pinkham,
has under her direction, and since her
decease, been advising sick women free
of charge. Her advice is free and
always helpful. Address, Lynn, Mass.

PRESIDENT STICKNEY AGAINST DELAY
How Rhodes and Beit Met.
Mr. Rhodes once told a circle of
friends after dinner the story of his
first meeting with Beit. "1 called at
Porges' late one evening," he said,
"and there was Beit working away as
nsual. 'Do you never take a rest?' I
asked. 'Not often,' he replied. 'Well,
what's your game?' said J. I am go-
ing to control the whole diamond out
put before I am much older,' he an
swered, as he got off his stool. 'That's
funny,' I said. 'I have made up my
min'd to do the same; we had better
Join hands,'" Join hands they did.
Vnlike Alfred Beit. Cecil Rhodes had
■mail patience with arithmetical de-
tails. Once this characteristic in
volved him in a difficulty. Pitching a
balance sheet Into the pile of papers
before Beit, he exclaimed desperately,
'Here, you understand things; for
heaven's sake tell me how I stand."
Laundry work at home would be
much more satisfactory if the right
Starch were used. In order to get the
desired stiffness, it is usually neces-
sary to use so much starch that, the
beauty and fineness of the fabric i.s
hidden behind a paste of varying
thickness, which not only,destroys the
appearance, but also affects the wear-
ing quality of the goods. This t'-ouble
can be entirely overcome by using De-
fiance Starch, as it can be applied
much more thinly because of its great-
er strength than other makes.
Baptists Do Not Cuss.
Senator Clay, of Georgia, was telling
Senator Pettus, of Alabama, about an
unfair, bro?/beating and insolent fed-
eral judge in the south. "He is —, he

The dispute ended abruptly after
President A. B. Stickney, o; tiie Cln-
'"i(40 Ureal Western railroad, declare i
thai he most vigorously protested
any further delay In the hearing.
President Stickney is one of the pe-
titioners for the reopening of the
cast which involves the Union Pa-
cific Railroad company, the Peavey
Elevator company and the Trans-
Mississippi Elevator oompany. One
of the eliief allegations In tTie case
Is that the railroad company granted
rebates to the Peavey Elevator com-
pany iind siave it a monopoly of the
grain business along the railroad.
Beside the Chicago- Great Western
railroad the petitioners are tiie Chi-
cago, Burlington & Qutncy and the
Atchison, Topcka & Santa Fe rail-
roads. The rebating is said lo have
been done at Omaha and Kansas
The first, hearing of the case was
In St.. Louis iu July, 1905, and It was
then closed. The three railroads
filed their petitions for a re-hearing,
declaring that new evidence had been
When the bill of complaint had
been read by Attorney Severance for

Baldwin, acting for the Union Paci-
fic. declared that the only new evi-
dence contained in the complaint Is
the charge that the P«avey Elevator
(jompanv had been given a few ship-
ping facilities by the railroad and
this assertion, Mr. Baldwin declared,
he was? ready to disprove.
FADED TO A SHADOW.
Worn Down by Five Years of Suffer-
ing from Kidney Complaint.
Mrs. Remethe Myers, of 180 South
Tenth St., Ironton, 0., says: "I have
worked hard In my
time and have been
exposed again and
again to changes of
weather. It is no
wonder my kidneys
gave out and I went
all to pieces at last.
For five years I was
fading away and finally so weak that
for six months I could not get out
of the house. I was nervous, restless
and sleepless at night, and lame and
sore in the morning. Sometimes
everything would whirl and blur be-
fore me. I bloated so badly I could
not wear tight clothing, Bnd had to
put on shoes two sizes larger than
usual. The urine was disordered and
passages were dreadfully freqtWnt. I
got help from the first box of Doan's
Kidney Pills, however, and by the
time I had taken four boxes the pain
and bloating was gone. I have been
in good health ever since."

Fiitnl Kxplosion hi II11 vim ti.
Havana, fiopt. 18.—A violent ex-
plosion occurred here Monday morn-
ing and wrecked two brick buildings.
Six persons were killed and many
were wounded. An investigation is
being made. The explosion is
thought to be the work of incendiar-
ies. The buildings at once caught
fire. Dead and wounded are still be-
ing taken from the wreckage. The
buildings were insured. Some alco-
hol was in storage in one of the dam-
aged buildings but the force of the
explosion causes Ihe belief that de-
liberate use of dynamite was made.

AWFUL PSORIASIS 35 YEARS.
Terrible Scaly Humor in Patches All
Over the Body—Skin Cracked and
Bleeding—Cured by Cuticura.
"I was afflicted with psoriasis for
thirty-five years. It was in patches
all over my body. 1 used three caUes
of Cuticura Soap, si\ boxes of Oint-
ment and two bottles of Resolvent.
In thirty days I was completely cured,
and I think permanently, as it was
about five years ago. The psoriasis
first made its appearance in red spots,
generally forming a circle, leaving in
the center a spot about the size of a
silver dollar of souad flesh. In a short
time the affected circle would form
a heavy dry scale of a white silvery
appearance and would gradually drop
off. To remove tfee entire scales by
bathing or using oil to soften them
ihe flej-h would be perfectly r^w, and
a light discharge of bloody substance
would ooze out. That scaly crust
would form again in twenty-four hours.
It was worse 011 my arms and limbs,
although it was in spots all over my
body, also on my scalp. If I let th •
Fcale.-- remain too long without remov-
ing by bath or otherwise, the skin
would crack and bleed. 1 suffered in-
'ense Itching, worse at nights after

Nowhere else, unless in America, Is
education so universal as in Sweden.
Every child must go to school be-
tweeu the ages of seven nnd 14, un-
less the parents can show that they

are about twelve thousand common
schools In Sweden, even the thinly
populated districts having "ambula-

What JoyThey Bring
To Every Home
as with joyous hearts and smiling faces they romp and play—when in health—and
how conaucive to health the games in which they indulge, the outdoor life they
enjoy the cleanly, regular habits they should be taught to form and the wholesome
diet of which they should partake. How tenderly their health should be preserved
not by constant medication, but by careful avoidance of every medicine of an injuri-
ous or objectionable nature, and if at anytime a remedial agent is required, to assist
n^re;0n''y 'hose of known excellence should be used; remedies which are pure
and wholesome and truly beneficial in effect, like the pleasant laxative remedy
Syrup of Figs, manutactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. Syrup of Figs has
come into general favor in many millions of well informed families, whose estimate
of its quality and excellence is based upon personal knowledge and use.
Syrup of Figs has also mef with the approval of physicians-generally, because
they know it is wholesome, simple and gentle in its action. We inform all reputa-
ble physicians as to the medicinal principles of Syrup of Figs, obtained, by an
original method, from certain plants known to them to act most beneficially and
presented in an agreeable syrup in which the wholesome Californian blue figs are
used to promote the pleasant taste ; therefore it is not a secret remedy and hence
we are iree to refer to all well informed physicians, who do not approve of patent
medicines and. never favor indiscriminate seif-medication.
Please to remember and teach your children also that the genuine Syrup of Figs
always has the full name of the ComDany— California Fig Syrup Co—plainly
printed on the front of every package and "that it is for sale in bottles of one size
only. If any dealer offers any other than the regular Fifty cent size, or having
printed thereon the name of any other company, do not accept it. If you fail to get
the genuine you will not get its beneficial effects. Every family should always have
a bottle on hand, as it is equally beneficial for the parents and the children
whenever a laxative remedy is required.
Thousands of Women
suffer every month In silence, tortures that would drive a man to the edge of des-
pair. The ailments peculiar to women are not only painful but dangerous and
should receive prompt treatment before they grow worse. If you suffer from pain,

follow the example of thous-
ands of women who have
been relieved or cured, and
take Wine of Cardul.
