Miss Aeries Miller, of Chicatro. l nenks
to young women about clangers of the
Menstrual Period how to avoid pain and
suffering and remove the cause by usino-
' Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable , Compound.
"To Yorrxa Womlx: I'RufftMvil for six years with dvKinenor
rhea (painful periods), so much so that I dreaded every lno'nth as. I
Jcnaw it; ir.e.mt three- or four days of intouso pain. The doctor said
thU was duo to an inllmied condition of tho uterine appendages caused
by rop.-ated and negleutetl cold.
"If youiiff girls only realized how dangerous it. is to take coid at
this critie.il time, much mi tiering would he spared t liem. Thank God
for Lydia. E. Pinkliuin's Vegetable. Coinixmnd, that was the only
m.'dieino wliieh helped me nny. Within three weeks after I started to
take it, I noticed a marked improvement in my general health, and at
tho timo of my next monthly period tho pain had diminished consider
ahly. I kept up tho treatment, and was cured a month later. I am like
another person sinco. I am in perfect health, my eves arc brighter, I have
added 12 pounds to my weight, my color is good, and I feel light and
happy." Miss Agnes Milllr, 25 rotomao Ave., Chicago, 111.
Tho monthly sickness reflects tho condition of a woman's
health. Anything umisunl nt tlmt time should have prompt
and proper attention. Fifty thousand letters from women prove
that Lydla K. IMnkhnm's Vegetable Compound regulates men
struation and makes those periods painless.

f A Lenten Sacrifice
There was an accusins voice In the
swelling notes of the big pipe organ.
Teal upon peal of denunciation rolled
out Into the dim-aisled church and re
verberated back from the vaulted cell
ing, all Its solemn impeachment seem
ing finally to center Itself in tho pew
occupied by the stately Miss Weyman.
She trembled under tha stormy ar
raignment. She looked back over her
life with a shudder and realized for
the first time its utter selfishness.
There were no crimes of commission
upon her spotless life, but what had
she done to make tho world brighter
or better? Nothing! . The answer
seemed to come in mighty anger from
the big organ, rather than from her
own Inner consciousness.
Hred in luxury and reared In Idle
ness, what had she ever accomplished
with the ten talents that the Master
had given her? Mer charities? She
had given much out of her abundance,
hut she Iiad never given so much as
a crumb of bread that meant sacrifice
cf one moment's comfort. Selfishness,
selfishness, selfishness! H was the
keynoto of her life and the whole
message of the big organ that morn
ing. The sun presently shot through a
great stained-glass window that cast
a Mood of golden light athwart Miss
Weyman's pew, and that same mo
ment the thunderous rebuke of the
organ ceased, and In Its place came a
strain of pleading harmony and then
a sweet, clear note of humble praise
with a sorrowful undertone that car
ried with it a suggestion of the agony
o. the cross.
She glanced up and a bright smile
from the choir turned her cheeks
Hflnme. There was her guilt of sel
fishness! She realized now that this
was the thing that had lain dormant
upon her conscience for so long. And
there must be her sucrlflcc! She
turned faint and almost cried out at
the thought. He belonged to her!
He belonged to her! For five long
yenrs they had been ns good as bo

worn hhi ring, waiting, waiting until
his pride should be satisfied with the
measure of succes Vie. had set him
self to accomplish before marriage.
And the ime had utmost come.
Two years. But In that time her
younger sister, Grace, had suddenly
bloomed Into womanhood! She turned
suddenly to the sister at her side.
She, too, was looking rp Into the
choir nnd exchanging a bright smile
with the handsome young bass. Grace

turned at her sister's movement and
met her eye with a calm, steady gaze
in which there was no concealment,
then smiled at her with the perfect
understanding of true sisterly affec
tum. Miss Weyman caught her breath
with a sigh of relief. There was no
disloyalty there, she knew. She re
flected with a pang that these two
young people did not know their own
secrets as yet. They might never
know It! He would, in his simple
honor, go calmly through his pro
gram and marry her when the time
came, and Grace would deck her hair
with orange blossoms. Why should
she not go through with her share
of the program, too? She would!
Again that organ! It rose once
more to its stern roll of denunciation
and Miss Weyman. as if she had done
a guilty thing, looked apprehensively
nt the calm pure face of her sister.
Ah, but .these two were made for each
other, and if it were not for the high
sense of honor that kept their loyal
minds untainted even by the thought
that things might be other than they
were, they would be sweethearts even
now. She reflected that herself and
the man in tho choir were of exactly
the same age and that the time would
c.ime when she would be no longer
joung; that he must sooner or later
see what he had missed to make his
lite complete. She loved him, but did
ne love her as a man should love the
woman he marries; as he could love
Grace If he were free to do so? She
looked up again into the choir and
sought the smile she loved so well.
She studied the smile when it came
ns she had never studied It before,
and as the big organ pealed out tho
opening passnges of the To Deum,
she bowed her head In her hands for
a moment, to fight back the tears
that sprang to her eyes r.s she silently
made her Ieuten sacrifice. Uis Au
Eoster in Russia.
In Russia Kuster Is the most Im
portant festival of the year, and Is
observed by the Orthodox church with
greater ceremony than Christmas.
There is universal Joy In the whole
country. Strangers salute each other
with a kiss and with the words,
"Christ is risen!" Tho latter custom,
however. Is rapidly dying out.
The Greek church requires a strict
fast through Int. This fust Is ob
served by all classes, from the Tzar
to the humblest peasant. It Is thought
that If the fast be neglected the Kus
ter blessings will be missing, and
misfortune will consequently follow
through the entire jenr.
AJNS ITS POPUXA
One Easter event for which lavish
decorations utu used, and yet one
that Is seldom mentioned In connec
tion with this season of the year, Is
the Easter christening. This Is usual
ly held at the home, and the bow win
dow or end of tho rHini In which the
ceremony Is performed Is arranged to
resemble an altar. It Is a pretty Idea
to build three Gothic arches and hui
the frames covered with tendrils of
green for the foundation. This may
be Jeweled here and there with blos

The universal Easter rejoicings In
olden times were not all because of
the great event which Easter com
memorates. Old records show that it
was often because the long forty

Anciently the" paschal or Easter
season extended from the Sunday he
fore until tho Sunday after .Easter
proper. On the Holy Thursday be
fore, called Maunday or Shere Thurs
day, there were services commemora
tive of Christ's washing the disciples'
feet. The Pope at Home, the arch
bishops in various countries, and the
nionarchs in England even through
Elizabeth's time had leet washing
services, the necessary accompani
ment of which was the giving of food
and money to the poor.
On tho last day of Lent everybody
in Home rushes to the Vatican. In
Italy the "sepulchers" in the churcheS
are watched night and day by people
clad in deep mourning from the dawn
of the Holy Thursday till midday on
Saturday, when the body Is supposed
to rise from the grave. The resurrec
tion Is announced by the firing of can
non, the blowing of trumpets and the
ringing of the bells which from tho
preceding Thursday have been care
fully tied up to protect them from tho
power of the devil.
The ceremonies of Easter day It
self are grand, long and many featured
throughout Catholic Christendom, but

friends to dinner When the. day

was traced to the quarters of the
naval brigade, and a young midship
man owned to having "pinched" It.
Tho Infuriated general exhausted his
vocabulary In abuse of this delin
