1 For Figuring Where Minutes Count i
g When a customer is waiting for the j
total of her bill, figuring must be done in a m
hurry; yet if it isn t right it means a loss
H that can never be made good.
H A small Burroughs Adding Machine,
! right on the counter, gives the total of any
H number of items in a few seconds quicker
H than pencil figuring and those totals are
H right 100 of the time. Preventing mis-
Hl takes means saving money.
The same machine will handle figure
work of all kinds. It is a visible model
fH visible writing, printing and visible totals,
s and a small machine which can easily be
H carried wherever it is needed. A Burroughs
g salesman will be glad to show you this
g machine, and how you can use it either on
i the counter or in the office.

The friendly feeling of Napoleon III
for the tollers Is dwelt upon by Agnes
Carey In her "An Empress ln Exile,"
In the Century, magazine, and she

perors. "Whatever his fallings to
ward her hnd been," the nutlior says,
"she professed a warm admiration of
bis love of bard work, his pluck and
his great kindness of heart and
Miniiglilfiilness for every one. The
emperor genuinely loved the poor and
humble among his subjects, with no
thought of policy. He wus too good
and generous for his people's under

"Napoleon was a dreamer and
spent much of his time to the serious
thinking out of schemes for the bene

His life's ambition wns to better their
lot. He had great mngnetlsm, espe
cially with the working clnsses. The
empress charmed every stranger, but
the emperor was really more personal

Owing to modern methods of living not one woman in a thousand
approaches this perfectly natural change in her life without experi
encing a train of very annoying and sometimes painful symptoms.
Those dreadful hot flashes, smothering spells, fainting spells,
nervous troubles and irregularities are symptoms that should have
prompt attention. These two letters prove what a successful
remedy Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is for women
at this time of life.
