DAKOTA COUNTY HERALD
Points the Way to Comfort
and Health. Other Women
Moundaville, W. Va. "I had taken
doctor's medicine for nearly two years
because my periods
I were irregular, came
every two weeks,
and 1 would sutler
pains. A lady told
me of Lydia E. Pink
Compound and how
much good it had
done her daughter,
so 1 took it and now
I am regular every
month and have no
pain at all. I recommend your medi
cine to everyone and you may publish
my testimonial, hoping that the Vege
table Compound does some other girl
the good it has done me. " Mr3. George
"Tegakden, 915 Third Street, Mounds
ville, W. Va.
How many young girls suffer as Mrs.
Tegarden did and do not know where to
turn for advice or help. They often aro
obliged to earn their living by toiling
day in and day out no matter how hard
the pain they have to bear. Every girl
who suffers in this way should try Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and
if she does not get prompt relief writo
to the Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine Co.,
Lynn, Massachusetts, about her health,

Is Ideally suited to library purposes.
It has a great ballroom, which makes
an excellent reading room, nnd also
hns sun parlors and large drawing
rooms, witli ninny windows. Mnny
Germans lmve asked for the privilege
of using the library, but this has been
denied, as the army did not think It
advisable. One German told the li
brarian he had lived ninny years in
America and should really be allowed
to have books, because he was an

j Man's Gold Tooth Stolen
j by Expert Pickpocket
New Orleans. There Is In
New Orleans a pickpocket who
Is expert enough to fill 1111 the
time-honored specification test
of being "able to steal a mniiN
gold teeth." He demonstrated
this when ho stole a gold tooth
which had previously been the
property of Adrlen A. Chazullo,
1030 St. Philip street. However,
the tooth happened to be In Mr.
Chazulle's purse at the time,
and It was the purso which the
pickpocket took while Us ownor
was a passenger In the Louis

Noisy Geese Give Fire Alarm.
New York. Two thousand geese,
ducks nnd chickens, awaiting death In
a poultry shop, chorused an alarm for

The unusual squawking awakened
residents of the neighborhood and at

which did not get Into production and

The smoke Is normally white, must
have maximum capacity and be cool

"As regards the future of Incendlarj
mntcrlal, my own opinion, which opin
ion, however, Is substantiated by at
least some of the military critics, la
that Incendlnry material, except for
small nrms and long range shell nnd
drop bombs, will hnvo at least a lim
ited and, perhaps, no use. The flame
projectors will probably never boused

tho other hand, will have n very exten

use of the smoke screen during an nt

There was In progress of develop
ment by tho British and Americans
during the lntter part of the war smoko
candles which would give a toxic
smoke. Tho toxic material em
ployed was diphenylchlorarsine. Di
phenylchlorarsine Is a solid which va
porizes In tho heat of tho candle and
is obtained In such a state of division
that It will penetrate most gns masks.
Such toxic smokes, of which thero will
probably lie others developed, will find
a very extensive use In the future. It
Is the greatest step mado thus far In
tho new use of smoke."
