DID A WORLD GF GOOD
Or. Williams’ Pink Pills Cure Heart
Pains, Dizzy Spells and
Easy to get, hard to get rid of; that is
what most sufferers think of dyspepsia.
They aro astonished when their stomach
begins to trouble them seriously.
They had been eating hurriedly and
irregularly for a long time, to ho sure,
but they supposed their stomachs quite
used to that.
Some people know that the strength
which the weak stomach needs, and for
the lack of which the whole body is suf-
fering, can he found surely and quickly
in Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills. In hun-
dreds of iustan os these pills have suc-
ceeded where other remedies failed.
“My indigestion,” said Mr. J. R. Mil-
ler, of Dayton, Va., “came in the first
lace from the fact that a few years ago
worked a great deal at night, and ate
at any odd hour whenever the chance
came, and always very hurriedly. One
day I found myself a victim of terrible
dyspepsia. It kept me miserable all the
time for several years.
“ I always had a great deal of distress
after eating, and when I got up from my
sleep my stomach would he so weak that
it would hardly take any food. I had
very uncomfortable fefilings about my
heart, and was dizzy and, whenever I
stooped over and then straightened up,
my eyes would be badly blurred.
“ I read the statements of several per-
sons who had got rid of obstinate stom-
ach troubles by using Dr. Williams’
Pink Pills. I bought some and they
did me a world of good. They acted
promptly and did just what was claimed
for them. I have no more distress af-
ter meals; the bad feeling has gone from
(he region of my heart; the alarming
dizzy spells have disappeared, and I am

FOUR YEARS CF AGONY.
Whole Fcot Nothing But Proud Flesh
— Had to Use Crutches—'‘Cuticura
Remedies the Eest on Earth.!’
"In the year 1899 the side of my
right foot was cut off from the little
toe down to the heel, and the physi-
cian who had charge of me was try-
ing to sew up the side of my foot, but
with no success. At last my whole
foot and way up above my calf was
nothing but proud flesh. I suffered un-
told agonies for four years, and tried
different physicians and all kinds of
ointments. I could walk only with
crutches. In two weeks afterwards I
saw a change in my limb. Ihen l be-
gan using Cuticura Soap and Ointment
often during the day, and kept it up
for seven months, when my limb was
healed up just the same as if 1 never
had trouble. It Is eight mouths now
since I stopped using Cuticura Reme-
dies, the best on God’s earth. I am
working at the present day after five
years of suffering. The cost of Cuti-
cura Ointment and Soap was only $6,
but the doctors' bills were more like
$600. John M. I.loyd.718 S. Arch Ave.,

PLANNED TO LEAVE BUSINESS.
But Fixed Habits of Long Standing
Couldn’t Be Cast Aside.
An Intimate friend of old Dr. Mnggs-
Iey called on him one morning, and
found, to his surprise, that the doctor
was packing his household goods for
removal. "What does this meaD?’’ he
asked. “It means,” said the doctor,
“that after practicing medicine in this
village of Summerville for forty years,
I have grown tired of it, and I’m go-
ing to move away.
“1 can’t retire and stay here at the
same time. My old patients won’t let
me. I’ve tried to turn my practice
over to one of the other doctors, hut
it didn’t work. I don’t need to follow
the business any longer, and I want to
spend the rest of my days in comfort.
I am going to sell or rent my place
here and go and live in some town
where I shall not be at everybody’s
beck and call, and where I can enjoy
a peaceful old age.”
Three or four months later the same
friend, in passing the house, was
astonished to see Dr. Moggsley stand-
ing in the front door, and the familiar
professional sign In its old place.
“Why, hello, doctor!” he said, greet-
ing him cordially. “What does thin
“Well,” explained the doctor, rather
sheepishly, “it means that I wras an
old fool to think that after living here
all my life I could end my days any-
where else. I have put in three of the
most miserable months I ever spent
anywhere, and I’ve come back to stay.
Let the patients come if they want to.
So long as I am able to look after
them I’ll do It—If I have to keep at It
for another forty years.”—Youth’s
HAD UNDERESTIMATED HIS MAN.
One Occasion When Landlord Failed
To Reach Limit.
Fifty years ago the landlord of the
hotel at Kingston Plains, N. H., was a
man by the name of Hoyt. He kept
an excellent house, but charged his
guests on a sliding scale, graduated
to their means or Inclinations to pay;
or, as he phrased it, “got as near the
kicking limit as it was safe to.”
One afternoon a prosperous looking
stranger, with a fine equipage, drove
up and registered for the night. Hoyt
studied all night on what it would de
t<5 charge him,'and when he prepared
to depart, and asked for his bill, nam-
ed a pretty stiff price.
The stranger paid the bill without
a murmur, complimented the landlord
on the excellence of his hostelry, ask-
ed him if he had any good cigars, in-
vited him to join him in a smoke at
his expense, and remarked that when
he came that way again he should cer-
tainly stop with him.
As he drove away, the landlord look-
ed after him until he passed from
view, with a face In which the emo-
tions of regret and chagrin were
strongly depicted, and gave audible ex-
pression to his thoughts as follows:
“Gad, I guess he would have stood
another half a dollar.”
The mail Is full of letters
And the soup Is full of peas.
There’s sugar in the coffee
And the yard Is full of trees;
The fields are full of stubble
And there’s grass upon the ground—
But the world Is full of trouble
If we only look around.
The corn Is full of kernels.
There are lilies In the brooks;
The towns are full of people,
There aro stories In the books;
The orchard’s full of apples,
And the meadow’s full of hay—
But what troubles we discover
1 . Vre only built that way.
The lilac’s full of blossoms
And the trees are full of leaves,
The meadow’s full of clover
And the fields are full of sheaves;
The bread Is full of flour
And the rain Is damp and wet—
But how much there is to fret us
If we really want to fret.
The bees are full of honey
And the apples full of juice.
The banks are full of money
But—be happy? What’s the use?
The beach Is full of psbbles,
There Is water In the creek—
But nothing really suits us
If ws really want to kick.

WHO SHE WAS
SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF LYDIA E. PINKHAM
And a True Story of How the Vegetable Compound
Had Its Birth and How the “Panic of ’73” Caused
It to be Offered for Public Sale in Drug Stores.
This remarkable woman, whose
maiden name was Estes, was horn in
Lynn, Mass., February 9th, 1819, com-
ing from a good old Quaker family.
For some years she taught school, and
became known as a woman of an alert
and investigating mind, an earnest
seeker after knowledge, and above
all, possessed of a wonderfully sympa-
In 1843 she married Isaac Pinkham,
a builder and real estate operator, and
their early married life was marked by
prosperity and happiness. They had
four children, three sons and a
In those good old fashioned days it
was common for mothers to make
j their own home medicines from roots
j and herbs, nature’s own remedies—
: calling in a physician only in specially
1 urgent cases. By tradition and ex-
j perience many of them gained a won-
derful knowledge of the curative prop-
erties of the various roots and herbs.
Mrs. Pinkham took a great interest
In the study of roots and herbs, their
characteristics and power over disease.
She maintained that just as nature so
bountifully provides in the harvest-
fields and orchards vegetable foods of
all kinds; so, if we but take the pains
to find them, in the roots and herbs
of the field there aro remedies ex-
pressly designed to cure the various
ills and weaknesses of the body, and
it was her pleasure to search these out,
and prepare simple and effective medi-
cines for her own family and friends.
Chief of these was a, rare combina-
tion of the choicest medicinal roots
and herbs found best adapted for the
cure of the ills and weaknesses pecu-
liar to the female sex, and Lydia E. Pink-
ham’s friends and neighbors learned
that her compound relieved and cured
and it became quite popular among
All this so far was done freely, with-
out money and without price, as a
labor of love.
But in 1873 the financial crisis struck
Lynn. Its length and severity were too
much for the large real estate interests
of the Pinkham family, as this class
of business suffered most from
fearful depression, so when the Centen-
nial year dawned it found their prop-
erty swept away. Some other source
of income had to be found.
At this point Lydia E. Pinkham’s
Vegetable Compound was made known
to the world.
The three sons and the daughter,
with their mother, combined forces to
restore the family fortune. They
argued that the medicine which was
so good for their woman friends and
icighbors was equally good for the
omen of the whole world.
’.■'lie Pinkhams had no money, and
little credit. Their first laboratory
was the kitchen, where roots and
herbs were steeped on the stove,
gradually filling a gross of bottles.
Then came the question of selling
it, for always before they had given
it away freely. They hired a job
printer to run off some pamphlets
setting forth the merits of the medi-
cine. now called Lydia E. Pinkham’s
Vegetable Compound, and these were
distributed by the Pinkham sons in
Boston, New York, and Brooklyn.
The wonderful curative properties of
the medicine were, to a great extent,
self-advertising, for whoever used it
recommended it to others, and the de-
mand gradually increased.
In 1877, by combined efforts the fam-
ily had saved enough money to com-
mence newspaper advertising and from
that time the growth and success of
the enterprise were assured, until to-
day Lydia E. Pinkham and her Vege-
table Compound have become house-
hold words everywhere, and many
tons of roots and herbs are used annu-
ally in its manufacture.
Lydia E. Pinkham herself did not
live to see the great success of this
work. She passed to her reward years
ago, hut not till she had provided
means for continuing her work as
effectively as she could have done it
During her long and eventful expe-
rience she was ever methodical in her
work and she was always careful to pre-
serve a record of every case that came to
her attention. The case of every sick
woman who applied to her for advice—
and there were thousands—received
careful study, and the details, includ-
ing symptoms, treatment and results
were recorded for future reference, and
to-day these records, together with
hundreds of thousands made since, are
available to sick women the world
over, and represent a vast collabora-
tion of information regarding the
treatment of woman’s ills, which for
authenticity and accuracy can hardly
be equaled in any library in the
With Lydia E. Pinkham worked her
daughter-in-law, the present Mrs.
Pinkham. She wascarefullyinstructed
in all her hard-wou knowledge, and
for years she assisted her in her vast
To her hands naturally fell the
direction of the work when its origina-
tor passed away. For nearly twenty-
five years she has continued it, and
nothing in the work shows when the
first Lydia E. Pinkham dropped her
pen, and the present Mrs. Pinkham,
now the mother of a large family, took
it up. With woman assistants, some as
capable as herself, the present Mrs.
Pinkham continues this great work.and
probably from the office of no other
person have so many women been ad-
vised how to regain health. Hick wo-
men, tills advice is “Yours for Health”
freely given if you only write to ask
Such is the history of Lydia E. Pink-
ham’s Vegetable Compound; made
from simple roots and herbs; the one
great medicine for women's ailments,
and the fitting monument to the noble
woman whose name it bears.
