It was the first time that John
Willie, aged four, had ever faced the
camera—at least, since he had begun
to take a live interest in things.
“Now, my little dear," said the pro-
tographer. "if you'll just keep still a
moment we shall soon have a pleasant
But nothing on earth would induce
John Willie to keep still.
"If you'll just go outside, madam,'
the artist said, after he had tried
for half an hour. "I think I can man-
age it all right.”
John Willie's mother went out, foi
she. too, was tired of the strain. And
behold! Fire minutes later the pho
tographer smilingly assured her that
all was well. As for John Willie, he
was as meek as a lamb. Only when
they reached home did his mother at
tempt to discover the reason.

Women Are Constantly Being Restored to
Health by Lydia E. Pinkham’s
"Worth mountains of gold.” says one woman. Another
says, “I would not give Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable
Compound for all the other medicines for women in the
world.” Still another writes, “ I should like to have the
merits of Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound thrown
on the sky with a searchlight so that all suffering women couid
read and be convinced that there is a remedv for their ills.”
NVe could till a newspaper ten times the size of this with such quo-
tations taken from the letters we have received from uniteful women
whose health has been restored and suite ring banished by Lydia E.
Pinkham’s Vegetable C ompound.
hy has Lydia L I’inkbani's Vegetable Compound aooomplishe 1
such a universal success ? NVhy has it lived and thrived and kept oa
doing its glorious work among the sick women of the world for mom
than 30 years ?
Simply and surely because of its sterling -worth. The reason no
other medicine has ever approached its success is plainly and siia-
plv because there is no other medicine so good for women's ills.
Here are two letters that just came to the writer’s desk—only two
of thousands, but both tell a comforting story to every suffering -wo-
man who will read them—and be guided by theta.
Few people realize the growth oi
Asiatic cults and religions in America
It is stated on apparently good au-
thority that this country now holds
15 0 sun worshipers, and an equal
number of Buddhists.
Probably ten times as many per
sons have covered the Oriental basis
of their new creed with a veneer oi
western Christianity. The number of
dabblers in the "mystic" cults of India
now among us cannot be guessed.
There is no cause for alarm at this
growth of Orientalism. Neither is it a
thing to be proud of. Mysticism, sen-
sualism. lethargy—these in varying
proportions are woven in the texture
of every Asiatic creed that is seeking
converts here. These creeds do not
