TWO 8ECRET3 WELL KEPT.
Cold Affected Head and Throat
—Attack Was Severe.
CbM. W. Bowman, 1st Lieut.' and
Adjt. 4th M. 8. M. Cav. Vols., writes
from Lanham, Md., as follows:
“Though somewhat avers*; to patent
medicines, and still more averse to be-
coming a professional affidavit man, it
seems only a plain duty in the present
instance to add my experience to the
columns already written concerning
the curative powers of Peruna.
“f have been particularly benefited
by Ua Me for colds in the bead and
throat. I have been able to fully cure
myaelf of a most severe attack In
forty-eight hours by Its use according
to directions, f use it as a preventive
whenever threatened with an attack.
’ “Members of my family also use it
for like ailments. We are recommend-
ing it to our friends.”—C. W. liowman.
■ Pe-ru-na Contains No Narcotics.
•• One reason why Peruna has found
permanent use in so many homes is that
it contains no narcotic of any kind. It
can be used any length of time without
acquiring a drug habit.

Tricks of Trade Guarded by Chlneae
* ‘ There are two trade secrets. ’ *
said an artist. • • that the outsldo
world, It seems, will never learn. One
Is a Chinese secret—the making of
bright and beautiful color called Ver-
million, or Chinese red. The color is
a Turkish secret—the inlaying of
the hardest steel with gold and sil-
* * Among the Chinese and among
the Syrians these two secrets are
guarded well. Apprentices, before
they are taken for either trade, must
swear a strong oath to reveal nothing
of wbat passes in the workshop.
These apprentices, furthermore, must
belong to families of standing, must
pay a large sum by way of premium
and must furnish certificates of good
character and honesty.
“You have seen damascened steel,
of course, and you have seen Vermil-
lion, or Chinese red. Remember the
next time you look at these two
things that their secrets have been
guarded inviolably, have been handed
down faithfully from one generation
to another for thousands of years.' ’
THE ENEMIES OF 8UCCE8S.
Endeavor First to Ascertain and Then
Bright, cheerful, hopeful thoughts
and a strong belief in one’s own abil-
ity to accomplish the thing undertak-
en are friends that will insure suc-
cess. The ambitious person should
learn as early In life as possible to
pick out the friends and enemies of
success and in many cases it will be
found that the greatest enemy re-
sides within himself. Morbid thoughts
for example are Infinitely greater
hindrances to success than opposition
from outside, and no health, no
beauty, no harmony, no real success
can exist In the atmosphere of ab-
normal melancholy or morbid ideas.
Overcome the enemies to success
within yourself and you will have
doqe much toward reaching the goal
of your ambition.—London Answers.

Extracted Prom Forest Plants
Nature’s laws are perfect If we obey
them, but disease follows disobedience.
Go straight to nature for the cure, to the
forest; there are mysteries here that we
can fathom for you. Take the bark of
the wild-cherry tree, the root of man-
drake, stone root, queen’s root, hloodroot
and golden seal, make a scientific, non-
alcoholic extract of them with just the
right proportions and yob have Doctor
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.
It took Dr. Pierce, with the assistance
of two learned chemists, eight years of
hard work experimenting to mako this
vegetable extract and alterative of the
Just the sort of spring remedy you
need to make rich, red blood, and cure
that lassitude and feeling of nerve ex-
haustion. Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical
Discovery bears the stamp of public
approval and has sold more largely in
the past forty years than any other blood
purifier and stomach tonic. The refresh-
ing influence of this extract Is like
Nature’s Influence—the blood is bathed
In the tonic which gives life to the blood
—the vital fires of the body burn brighter
and their increased activity consumes
the tissue rubbish which has accumu-
lated during the winter. Doctor R. V.
Pierce, the founder of tho Invalids’
Hotol and Surgical Institute, and a phy-
sician of largo experience and practice,
was the first to make up an alterative
extract of roots, herbs and barks, with-
out A PARTICLE OF ALCOHOL OB NAB-
coTiqg, which purifies the blood and
tones up tho stomach and the entire
system In Nature’s own way. Tho
"Golden Medical Discovery” is just tlio
tissue builder and tonic you require
when recovering from a hard cold,
grip, or pneumonia. No matter how
strong tho constitution tho stomach is
apt to be "out of kilter” after a long,
hard winter: in consequence the blood Is
disordered, for the stomach is tho labor-
atory for the constant manufacture of
blood. Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Dis-
covery strengthens tho stomach-puts it
in shape to make pure, rich blood—helps
the liver and kidneys to expel the poi-
sons from the body. If you take this
NATURAL BLOOD PURIFIER AND TONIC
you will assist your system in manufac-
turing each day a pint of rich, arterial
blood, that is stimulating to tho brain and
nerves. The weak, nervous, run-down,
debilitated condition which so many
people experience at this time of the year
is usually the effect of poisons in the
blood; It is often indicated by pimples or
boils appearing on the skin, the face be-
comes thin—you feel "blue.” Dr. Pierce’s
Golden Medical Discovery cures all
blood humors as well as being a tonic
that makes one vigorous, strong and
forceful. Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical
Discovery stands alone as the one
medicine for stomach, liver and blood
disorders that has the ingredients printed
upon the wrapper of every bottle leaving
the great laboratory at Buffalo, N. Y.,
which cures In nature’s own way; not
only does it stand alone In respect
to Its ingredients but also as tho only
spring tonic and reconstructive which
absolutely contains no alcohol.

London, May 15.—In the House of
Commons today Premier Balfour said
that having regard for the changes in
the sea power of other nations, a re-
distribution of the fleet and army was
desirable for colonial defense, and ihe
committee on defense of the admir-
alty had concluded that the fleet and
army should be concentrated In the
center of the empire from which they
could be distributed as necessity
arose. An invasion of India here has
been the dream of many military lead
ers. The progress of Russia towards
the Afghanistan frontier and the con
struction of strategic positions com-
pelled the government to consider
with all seriousness what its gfeat
military neighbors could do. No sur-
prise was possible in an invasion of
India. Any collision of magnitude be-
tween the two powers must depend
upon the rapidity of railroad construc-
tion. General Lord Kitchener’s view
was that in addition to the ordinary
drafts eight infantry divisions and
other corresponding arms should be
available for the defense of India in
the first year of a war.
If Great Britain permitted the slow
absorption of Afghanistan in a way
similar to that in which the central
Asian states had been absorbed and
if Russia’s strategic railroads were al-
lowed to creep closer and closer tc
the frontier Great Britain would ulti-
mately pay for her supineness, by
helping to keep on foot an army far
larger than could be contemplated
with equanimity and she would be
faced with the greatest military prob-
lems which had ever confronted the
Mr. Balfour remarked that the de-
velopment of Russia towards India
has from time to time caused great
alarm. Great Britain had in vain by
diplomatic means endeavored to pre-
vent Russia’s expansion which must
now be taken as an accepted fact. Al-
though invasion of India was much
talked of by Russian officers he did
not believe that it formed any part of
the scheme of the Russian govern-
MADE THE TRUST SQUEAL.
Chicago, May 16.—According to a
bill filed in the federal court, Rodney
B. Swift, for a score of years a trust
ed employe of the McCormick Har
vesting Company and recently higli
In the confidence of the harvester
trust, has been practicing 1 * high
finance. ’ ’ The suit, is to recover
$25,000. The McCormick Harvester
Company is also suing Swift to recov-
er $60,000 of stock in the Internation-
al Company, given him for ‘4 long and
faithful services. ’ ’
One Hadley, of Indianapolis, had a
corn-shucking device. Swift said it
was just what the trust needed. The
price was $75,000. Swift s brother is
alleged to have bought the patent
from Hadley for $50,000, and it was
turned over to the trust for $75,000.
At the time of the discovery of the
deal Swift was in Europe. Upon his
return to New*STork he was met by an
official of the trust, who asked why he
had betrayed the confidence of his em-
ployers. It Is alleged that he replied
that his action was simply 4 44 modern
business—the way the world moves. ’ ’
Two Girls Take Poison.
Joplin, Mo., May 16.—In a suicide
compact Lucile Scott, aged 1C years
is dead, and Pearl Bugg, aged 1?
years will die. Both took strychnine.
The girls were arrested for boisterous
conduct, and were in jail when they
decided to kill themselves. The Scott
girl’s home is in Rosedale, Kan.
Morton to Leave Cabinet.
Washington, May 16.—Secretary ot
the Navy Morton stated that he had
no present intention of resigning

he should leave the cabinet next fall
Ton Killed in Riot.
St. Petersburg, May 16.—The No
vostl says It has received private in-
formation to the effect that during
the rioting sixten persons were kill
ed at Zhitomir, ten at Trojanoff and
one at Zoungari and that about one
hundred were wounded. The bodies
of the killed, according to these ad-
vices were terribly mutilated, in many
cases being unrecognizable.
St. Petersburg, May 11. — General
Linevitch, in a dispatch to the em-
peror. dated May 1. gives the Russian
version of the recent raid made by
Russian torpedo boat destroyers from
Vladivostok. He says Captain Baron
Raden, while reconnoitering the
coasts of Japan with a torpedo flo-
tilla, burned a Japanese schooner off
the coast of Cape Soutsouki and pot
the cr^r ashore, and also captured
another schooner 15 miles off the
Japanese crew. After removing nine
of her crew Captain Raden scat the
prize to Vladivostok.
PARROT KNOWS THE 8ERVICE8.I
Pet of English Clergyman Has Re-
Tho rector of a Hampshire (Eng.)
parish possesses a most wonderful
parrot. Though the rector lives two
miles from the church, the bird In-
variably accompanies him to the sa-
cred building. While the service is
proceeding the bird recognizes bis
master's voice, and when he reads a
lesson or preaches one can hear the
bid outside chattering away. The
parrot also Joins In the ’1 Anions ’ ’
and is evidently quite conversant with
all church service routine. The serv-
ice over, the parrot screams with de-
light, circles nboqt its master’s head,
perches on his shoulder and finally
accompanies him home. The attach-
ment of the master to the bird is only
equaled by the parrot’s evident pride
In and affection for its master.
Sale of New Jersey.
On April 16, 1681, the province of
New Jersey was offered for sale at
about $25,000. An original letter Is
still in existence from the Earl ot
Bath to Lord Norbury, since sold by
aucton as a curious manuscript, con-
taining a proposal for the sale In
which it is represented as “ a coun-
try almost as large as England, be-
longing to the* late George Car-
teret. ’ ’
Novel Written in Verse.
A London publisher received the

translate it into English prose.

Actual Sterility in Women Is Very Rare—Health)
Mothers and Children Make Happy Homes.
Many women long for a child to bless
their homes, but because of some de-
bility or displacement of the female
orgaus they are barren.
Preparation for healthy maternity is
accomplished by Lydia E. Pinkham’s
Vegetable Compound more successfully
than by any other medicine, because it
gives tone and strength to the entire
female organism, curing all displac

not that an incentive to prepare for a
healthy maternity ?
If expectant mothers would fortify
themselves with Lydia E. Pinkham’s
