    Have an Abiding Faith in Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
After years of struggle to Attain and merit pufclio confidence, with a firm
and steadfast belief that tome day others would recognize in us the truth,
good faith, and honesty of purpose which we know we possess, what a genu
ine satisfaction it is to succeed, and to realize the uplifting influence of tha
" merUed confidence of a vast army of our fellow beinps.
Thus stands the Pinkham name in Kew England, and all over America,
and nowhere is the faith in Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound greater
than in New England, its home. Merit, and merit alone, can gain this.
"Deab JIns. Pinkdam: I was
' troubled Tery badly with inflamma
tion of the bladder, was sick in bed
with it. I had two doctors, but they
. did me no good. A friend gave me
Lydia E. P:ukham's Vegetable Com
pound, and it helped me. 1 hare now
taken three bottles of it, and I am
. entirely cured. It is a God-send to
anv woman, and I would recommend it
to any one suffering as I was. I think,
if most of the women would take
more of your medicine instead of
going to the doctors, they would be
better off. The Compound has also
cured my husband of kidney trouble."

Also suffered with headaches, pain

DUgrarafal Record Mai etrlkei llerae
with Flckai Womaa Throw, Dos
from High WjDda,,
In Its annual report the Society for
tho Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
gives a list of more important cases
of cruelty with which It has dealt in
the course of the year, says the New
York Press. It Is anything but a
pleasant record and shows mankind in
about as mean and despicable light as
can be imagined. Horses seem to b
the animals most frequently abused,
and in many cases it seems to be sim
ply a fiendish love of cruelty for cruel
ty's sake which incites the evil-doer.
Some of the cases mentioned the last
report are as follow?: An Italian was
arrested for carrying four young goats
in a bag, their legs tied together and
the animals packed in like bundles of
wood. When brought before Judge
Fleming the prisoner said that It was
the custom in Italy to carry young
goats in that manner, and that he had
no idea that It wa3 against the law
here. The judge told him that "ignor
ance of the law is aa excuse to no
man," and that in this country the
law prohibited cruelty to animals. It
cost the Italian $10 to learn the differ
ence between sunny Italy and humane
America. A man in New Rochelle
wanted to move his horse from one
side of the stable to the other, so he
grabbed the animal by the tongue and
pulled him across, thereby much In
juring the horse. He was fined ?3. A
truck driver In Brooklyn drove a
wheel of his truck over the hind leg
of a horse standing near the sidewalk,
injuring the animal's leg severely. H
had plenty of room to drive in and
need not have done the cruel act. He
had the choice of thirty days In Jail or
a fine of $50. A man up In Onconta
left bis horse out in the roadway with
out food or water for nearly twenty
four hours in Inclement weather. He
was let off with a fine of $13. A par
ticularly cruel case was that of a
man who struck his horse with a pick
ax. He was putting the harness on the
horse when the animal became res
tive. This bo angered the owner that
he went Into the yard, got a pickax,
came back to the barn and drove it
into the horse several times. He in
flicted wounds two inches long and
Ave Inches deep. After thus cruelly
wounding the animal he paid no furth
er attention to it, but the neighbors re
ported the case to the society and the
man was arrested. He was sentenced
to pay a fine of $250 or be Imprisoned
three months In the penitentiary.
Another case was that of the driver
of an ice wagon. He drove a fine pair
of horses, and one of them, a magni
ficent gray, angered the driver in some
way. The driver in a fit ot anger
seized an "Ice shaver," a four-pronged
implement of steel, measuring four
inches across and with a handle three
feet long. With all his force he drove
the ice shaver Into the horse's flack,
making a wound about four inches
deep and the width of the implement.
A veterinary surgeon put more than a
dozen stitches In the wound, and the
horse was unfit for work for several
weeks. The man got off with a fine of
$100. Women as well as men figure in
the disgraceful record. One woman
picked up a dog end threw it through
a third-story window to the ground,
breaking its back. She was fined $.'5,
with an alemativc of ten days' impris
onment She could give no excuse for
her inhuman action. A beautiful St.
Bernard dog belonging to the Suburb
an Driving club was found dead in its
kennel. Marks on its body showed
that it had been stabbed to deatb. A
trail of blood was traced from the ken
nel to a shanty about a mile distant,
where a man lived alone. Evidences
of struggle and of bloodstains leading
to the entrance of the shanty were also
found. In the shanty there was found
a large jackknlfe, with an edge on It
like a raior. It was covered with
dried blood. It was proved that on re
turning from his work the man who
lived In the sbanty had found the dog
roaming about, and had caught him
and stabbed him with repeated thrusts
of the knife. Then he let the animal
go. The poor dog had strength enough
to reach the side of his kennel, where
he fell down dead. The man got six
months in the penitentiary.

Things of the nineteenth century
have hardly been known in the Phil
ippine islands until very recently. The
people there got along with eighteenth
century methods and materials until
American occupation made them real
ize that the twentieth century was
here. While living over rivers of oil
they had a scanty supply Imported
from Russia. Now wells have been
sunk and the natives are getting a
little light on tbeir former Ignorance.
Ships are landing on the islands ma
chinery that truly astonishes the na
tives. Where they have been scratch
ing the soil to raise poor crops they
are now plowing deep furrows and
getting something near the value of a
productive soil. Edged tools without
edges and with temper uncertain as
that of a Spaniard hare been set aside
for axes, picks, chisels, drills, saws and
shovels that mean much more and bet
ter work with less expenditure of hu
man effort. The worst known appli
ances that boasted of the name "tools"
are being replaced by the very best
instruments of labor known to our
highest civilization. Steam power In
its most perfect forms Is being ap
plied where It was no more known
than It was with us a century ago. The
people are learning for the first time
that the hills can be cut down and val
leys filled up to make roads more level,
so that larger loads can be hauled with
much less effort than before. The
steam shovel that with one motion of
its iron jaws takes up more materia'
than a dozen natives could shovel out
In an entire day is an object of abso
lute wonder. In fact, the Filipinos are
only beginning to learn that the world
has been actually moving since Ma

them the name of " robbers." Chicago

Spurred to
That a man need have neither hands
nor feet to be a success In the world
Is shown by the career of Michael Jo
seph Dowllng, speaker of the Minne
sota house of representatives. A ter
rible experience In a blizzard when a
boy brought out the latent possibilities
in the youth as nothing else that could
happen to him might hare done. Forty
years ago Dowllng was born in Yel
low Medicine county, Minnesota, the
son of a poor farmer. Early in De
cember, 1880, as is told by a writer
In the St. Louis Republic, a hard bliz
zird set In in Yellow Medicine county,
and in a short time provisions were
low. It was unsafe to venture out of
doors, and every effort was made to
make the food in the Dowllng family
last until the blizzard should have
spent its fury. But the blizzard lasted
for an unusually long period, and it
became necessary to get more food or
starve. The elder Dowllng was 111,
and the young man started on foot
for the village, three miles distant, to
get provisions. He reached the village)
grocery store with less difficulty than
he had expected, and was soon on bis
return laden with flour, meal and other
stores. He soon found that the trip
homeward was not as easy as the first
half of his journey, but he plodde-l
on with head down to protect his face
from the blasts of wind and snow.
Suddenly he discovered that he was
off the road. He tried to find it, but
was unsuccessful. The wind was get
ting colder and colder. He became
more and more bewildered. With
dogged determination he trudged on
and on holding his precious bundle'J
of food nearer t him. In the storm
he could not find a single familiar
landmark. After hours of aimless
wandering night fell, and the farmer's
son was still struggling through th
The next morning dawned bright
and clear. The bliizard had pased
on toward the Great Lakes, Dowllng
found himself within a hundred yards
of his own home. Rut he could not
walk further, and his voice could not
be heard five feet away. He sank down
exhausted, almost within reach of his
homo and gave up all hope of reach
ing It. But his mother saw him fall
A mineral possessing illuminating
power has been discovered In Idaho.
The people of Boise City are very
much excited over the event. Assay
ists have been unable, as yet, to de
termine what the strange substance
is. The discoverey was made by
George F. Ayres. a well known mining
man of Boise, several weeks ago, in
one of his claims, about sixty miles
from the city. At the time he did
not think much of the matter and
therefore paid no attention to it. The
further lie went into the mine, how
ever, the brighter the light became,
until, aftr a few feet had been worked,
It was not necessary for him to use a
lamp. It was then that he took some

Terry L. Williams of Boise, who fs
Interested with Mr. Ayres. was In Ta
coma. Wash., recently, and had a piece
of the mineral with him. He will have
an assay of It made and expects that
Its true worth will je determined.
"So far we have not been able to find
any person who is able to tell what
kind of a mineral It Is," he said, when
exhibiting It, "and It is for that pur
pose I have brought, it here. There Is a
large body of it at the mine where this
was taken out about sixty miles from
Boise City. Mr. Ayres, owner of the
mine, found It four weeks ago at a
depth of 300 feet from the surface. H
was running a cross cut tunnel to tap
his ledge at this depth, when he struck
this deposit. At first it attracted his
attention by giving forth a dull light.

The late Secretary Evarta liked fun,
and there was a dry wit In bis public
utterances at times that nearly con
vulsed those who clearly understood
his meaning. It was almost impossible
for him to avoid being deep, even In
humor, anil many a good fling at po
litical opponents was lost because he
talked above the heads of his audience,
or becaues bis sentences were too in
volved. At the time when the mug
wumps were Just beginning to show
their teeth, he delivered one of his
long political speeches from the stage
of the Grand opera house, New York,
WelahlfB to Cate.

and came to his aid. With her help
he reached the honae. It was found
that his face, hands, feet and leg
were badly frozen. A doctor wa
summoned and declared it was neces
sary to amputate the boy's hands and
legs. This was done, and barely twen-ty-fonr
hours after he had left homo
to go to town he was a helpless crip
ple. One leg was amputated above tho
knee, the other above the ankle, his
left arm at the elbow and all the fin
gers of the right hand. When" tho
doctors left all that remained of tho
boy's ten fingers and ten toes was th.i
stump of one thumb amputated at tha
second joint.
Dowllng's father was a poor man
and to the young man no future wai
apparent but a useless existence, a
burden and an eyesore to all about hlro.
But worse was In store for him. He
soon became a public charge. The.
three commissioners of Yellow Medi
cine met to decide as to his fate. The
close-fisted commissioners made him
sign an agreement not to return to
Yellow Medicine county after being
supplied with artificial limbs and a
year's schooling. They congratulated
themselves for thus saving the county
the expense of caring for a helpless
cripple Indefinitely. But Dowllng was
determined and ambitions. He got a
good education, became an adept on
artificial limbs, returned to Renville,
a county adjoining the one from
which ho had been banished, was elect
ed to a small local public office, work
ed Into the ownership of a weekly
newttitaoer, thru a-ppeared In the ses
sions of the state elgisalturo as a clerk
and next became secretary of a nation
al political organization, being nomi
nated to that position as the "Frozen
Son of 'Minnesota."- He secured recog
nition as a man of executive ability
and a good campaigner. He was net
heard of as a newspaper correspondent
In the Philippines. Returning from
the Philippines Dowllng reached tho
United States In time to attend tho
national convtntion Bt Philadelphia.
His peaked Philippine hat was one of
the sights of 'the convention. Later
he became a candidate for the legis
lature, won easily, and Immediately an
nounced his candidacy for the speak
days' work he was able to go ahead
without the aid of a lamp. Then tho
mineral became a curiosity and som r.
ot It was taken to Boise. It was ex
amined, but there has been no one who
Is able to tell just what it is.
"Mr. Ayres took a plsce of it to his
cabin, and after night tried to make it
show a light, but it was not so bright
as it had been in the tunnel. This is at
tributed to the atmospheric conditions,
and is undoubtedly true, for In the ex
periments that have been made with
It in Boise we have been able to re
produce the atmospheric conditions In
water that prevail where the mineral
Is found, and therefore it is not
thought that we will have any trouble
in getting the desired result. j
"'So far as we have been able to
learn, this is the first of the mineral
;vr Xound In 'he world. AH Jjssayers
to whom we Uave shown it saythoy
never heard of it before, and they a
not able to tell what It is. We will
go ahead and try to put it to some use,
and even at the present time 'are rea
sonably sure of success. If it does
come out as we expect, the mine will
be more valuable than wc ever be
lieved. "There Is a large body of the deposit,
and the farther wc go in the stronger
becomes the light. Another thing that
we are convinced of is that, If we can
make it practical, it will be a perpetual
light, for In the throwing off of its rays
there does not appear to be any waste -of
the mineral. Since the discovery
there has been a large number of visit
ors to the mine, and the outcome Is
being watched by all In the vicinity of
where the deposit was uncovered."
and in the course of It remarked that
be believed the republican party need
not fear the mugwumps as the latter
were a lot of "marsupials." Some 3,500
men beard the word, and after the
meeting groups got together to discuss
the meaning of the word and Its ap
plication. Some went home to look at
their dictionaries, while others called
on Mr. Evarts for an explanation.
"Marsupials," said he, "are born ex
tremely small. Imperfect and quite
helpless, and have to be carried In
pouches on the bellies of their moth
ers." tainly not, If he calculates the feeding
