Compound, and thoy
told mo about it. I
know what it has

ful medicine, and I give you permission

East St., Lebanon, Indiana.
These letters recommending Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound ought
to convince women of the great worth
of this medicine in the treatment of ail
ments to which they are often subject.
Mrs. Baker calls it "a wonderful med
icine." If you aro suffering from
troubles women often have, or ieel all
run down, without any ambition or en
ergy for your regular work, take Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. It
is a natural restorative and should help
you a3 it has Mrs. Baker and many,
many other women.

prescribe Nujol because
its action is so close to
this natural lubricant.
Nujol is a lubricant not

IN HER HUSBAND'S MEMORY

The day Mrs. Maude A. Donohuo's

She is now editor

a progressive lit

at Ookato, Minn.,,
trying, by keep
ing herself al

forget the dny
w hen she re
ceived the news
that her husband
had been killed in action In France.
Mrs. Donohue Intends this year to
erect a now newspaper building In
Coknto as a memorial to "My Bill,"
nnd then she Intends ns a "dlstnnt
dream" to write a book of his life.
Last year she visited her husband's
grave at Ilomange, where 22,000 were
hurled In the heart of the Argonno
Probably no paper In the country
gives more sympathetic treatment to
tlio problem of the returned soldier
than does the weekly at Cokato. "The
tragedy of .wnr has broadened my
viewpoint," says Mrs. Donohue.
"There Is much to be done, nnd I'm
frank to say that I expect great
things of the American Legion as nn
organization representing men who
know what the" word 'service' means."

ARENA BATTLES FOR LEGION
AERIAL POLO IS NEW SPORT
Airplane-Toy Balloon Game One of
Features at Recent Legion Enter
tainment In Florida. '
Aerial pulo Is tho latest sport. One
of tho chief features of an entertain
ment given by the American Legion at
Miami. Fin., was a gome of polo
stnged high In tho air, sans nmllets,
sans ponies, sans ball, sons everything
except n dozen nimble aviators and
several dozen toy balloons.
Every sort of twist from the Tmmel
mnnn turn to the maple-leaf drop Is
cnlled into play during the contest.
Here Is what happens: A inotorboat
loaded with the many-colored balloons
of the proverbial country fair plows
out Into the harbor and drops anchor.
From nearby hangars come gnlloplng
a dozen Pcgasusus. They take tho
air, and when they are equidistant
from the launch, at n safe altitude,
the little balloons are released and go
soaring upward In great confusion on
the wind. -
The air rider who captures the
greatest number Is declared the win
ner. The Legion pilots who tried It
said that It used to be easier catching
Would Postpone This Expense.
The dome of tho proposed Victory
Memorial building In Washington
would be virtually a huge service flag.
It would be studded with five million
stars gold for those who died, blue
for those who served. Tho plan Is
to have each star engraved with tho
Initials of tho soldier It stands for,
so that future visitors will bo able to
distinguish them, with tho aid of n
telescope, from tho floor below. Tho
American Legion has taken tho stnnd
that the erection of the expensive me
morial shouldvbe withheld until there

Tho Legion has picked up the Idea
of "bloodless bull-fighting," and re
