How Miserable This Woman Was
Until She Took Lydia E. Pink*

Toomsboro, Ga.—“I suffered terribly
With backache and headache all the time,
wpsso weak and ner-
tous I didn’t know
what to do, and could
trouble was deficient
and irregular peri-
ods. I read in the
papers what Lydia
E. Pinkham’s Vege-
table Compound had
done for others and
decided to give it a
trial. I got good
results from its use
so that I am now able to do my work.
I reefimmend your Vegetable Compound
to my friend* who have troubles similar
to mine and you may use these facts
as a testimonial.”—Mrs. C.F. Phillips,
Weak, nervous women make unhappy
homes, their condition irritates botn
husband and children. It has been
said that nine-tenths of the nervous
prostration, nervous despondency, “the
blues, ” irritability and backache arise
from some displacement or derange-
ment of a woman’s system. Mrs. Phil-
lips’ letter clearly snows that no other
remedy is so successful in overcoming
this condition as Lydia E. Pinkham’s
Women Proving More Polite.
It is not an uncommon sight now to
see a young girl get up and offer her
seat In the subway to an elderly wom-
an, whose entrance has been Ignored
by (lie male passengers. Such usual-
ly brings some blushing humble man
to his feet with a stammering offer of
“have my seat,” but the climax was
reached the other evening in an up-
town restaurant when a mkldle-aged
woman took a seat at the same table
with fine of her own sex,, a stranger

By Four Eatonics
“I have taken four Eatonlc tablets
and they relieved me of sour stomach.
I recommend It to everybody," says
Mrs. G. P. Hicks.
If stomach is not digesting your
food; If you have sourness, bloating,
food repeating, indigestion or add
stomach, Eatonlc will remove the
cause by taking up and carrying out
the acidity and gases, bringing quick
relief and healthy digestion. Why suf-
fer stomach trouble? Why not keep
your digestion normal and enjoy good
heulth? An Eatonlc taken after each
meal will prevent discomfort and pain.

Their Granddaddy Who Fought for the Union in Jhe Civil War Is Remem-
bered on Memorial Day.
H - -if
The unique distinction of having
erected the llrst so'^iers' monument
“to commemorate the death of those
who perished in suppressing the Con-
federacy” belongs to the little town of
Kensington, Conn. For fifty years n
slender shaft of plain, brown sand-
stone, hewn from the famous Con-
necticut river quarries at Portland,
lias held the place of honor on the
Kensington green and served as a fit-
ting memorial to six boys from the
village who died fighting in the early
part of the Civil war.
The history of the Kensington monu-
ment is an interesting one. In Marcli
18(13, when the contract for the monu-
ment was originally made, the fate of
the nation was still hanging in the
balance. Several months before the
great victory of Gettysburg, at the
patriotic instigation of llev. Elias 15.
Hilliard, pastor of the Kensington Con-
gregational church, the agitation for
n soldiers’ monument began. When
$350 had finally been raised by public
subscription, the work was started.
If the fate of the nation was still
hanging In the balance when the Ken-
sington monument was contracted for,
the dedication, July 28, 1803, after
Grant’s great victory at Vicksburg and
Meade's at Gettysburg, came at a most
opportune tini#, for uow the tide of
war had turned in the North’s favor.
The semi-centennial of the dedication
of the Kensington monument was cele-
brated by the Connecticut G. A. It. and
the people of Kensington, whose pa-
triotic predecessors were the first ones
In the country to express tlieir feelings
by erecting n public memorial to the
soldiers of their town who had lost
their lives in the Civil war.-
( Moral Lesson
It Is a great thing to have such a
demonstration ns was given us during
the wars of the United States of the
capacity of men for sacrifice, for it
makes us think better of our kind.
The soldiers in all our wars were in
no way different from their friends and
neighbors. Drawn from the great
masses of our people they were repre-
sentative of them. More broadly, they
were representatives of humanity—
that humanity of which so many seem
to despair. Heroism is no unusual
tiling in the life of man, nnd in great j
crises it is the rule. The World war |
furnished a new proof of this to the
generation that lias grown up since
our civil struggle, and that knows it
only ns a great historical event. There ]
ought to lie a renewal and strengthen-
ing of faith. America is the one coun-
try above all others in which there
should be no place for doubters and
whiners. Rather the feeling should he
that what men have done men can do,
and that there is no task beyond tire
powers of Americans, nor any sacrifice
which they will not make at the call
of duty. The heroic strain in the blood
hns not died out—ns we learned dur- I
ing the years of war. The problem Is
ohe of making effective the great quali-
ties and applying them to life. And
the problem is by no means easy. The
proper and reverent observance of
Membrinl day will help toward a solu-
tion. Gratitude there must always be
to the men who saved the Union, and
laid anew the foundations for a great-
er and nobler national life. Though
our gratitude can not profit those who
were killed in the war, or have died
since, grateful hearts have a beneficial
effect on those who possess them.
HONORS FALLEN HERO
The wuyslde shrine, that silent In-
vitation to worship frequently met
with along the highways and byways
of Europe, Is a rare sight In this coun-
try. Such monuments of piety seem
somehow out of place In nn American
landscape, but we have learned much
from the contacts of the grent war,
and in years to come the simple shrine
may seem n natural memorial to a
hero who fell on Flanders field or
French hillside. One of the few
shrines erected here was put in place
not long ago near Philadelphia, as
a tribute to the memory of United
States soldiers who gave up their
lives In France. A son had been killed
In the war, and his parents set up
tills remembrance of him on llieir es-
tate, but near the highroad within
sight of all passers-by. The Church
News describes the shrine nnd its
setting In a recent Issue. It stands
“in a charming sylvan nook formed by
a high, heavily wooded hill.” Beside
it, we rend, “flows a murmuring brook,
symbol of the eternal continuity of
life. Surrounding it are evergreen
trees, nnd shrubs typifying the unre-
mitting care of God for his creatures.
In front, but a few paces H\vny, runs
Valley Green road, typifying the high-
ways of life, prepared by snints nnd
martyrs and heroes who have toiled
and died that we might live nnd walk
securely in our pilgrlmnge to the Uu-
soen City of God.” In Its genernl con-
ception and design the shrine is said
to he similar to the shrines so often
seen by our soldiers in France, and
always viewed with respect by them."
The granite pedestal which supports
the marble baldachin contains the
crucifix nnd the statue of a soldier.—

SYSTEM DID NOT WORK WELL
Englishwoman Found Some Disadvan-
tages in Giving Instructions in
the Sign Language.
An English lady was talking about
her cleverness in getting a Russian
servant. “She can’t speak a word of
English, and I can’t speak Russian,"
she finished. “But how do you man-
age, then?” asked her friend. “Oh,
it’s quite simple. I just wave my
hands about and make faces, and if
she doesn't quite understand, she goes
off and does something else, so all
the work gets done in time.” Later
on tlie friend called, hoping to catch
a glimpse of the Russian treasure,
and found the mistress in tears.
“That dreadful Bolshevik,” she wailed.
“She came up to ask what she was
to do next, and I made scrubbing mo-
tions, meaning the kitchen floor, of
course, and she did it on my lovely
polished dining table instead, and it
is absolutely ruined! And now siie’s
sulking in the kitchen, smoking my
cigarettes, and I can’t make her un-
derstand that she’s not to tuke them!”

vited to a house party.” “Yes, we
