When a cheerful, brave and light-hearted woman is sud
denly plunged into that perfection of misery, the blues, it is
a sad picture.
It is usually this way :
She has been feeling out of sorts for some time, experi
encing severe headache and backache ; sleeps very poorly
and is exceedingly nervous.
Sometimes she is nearly overcome by faintness, dizzi
ness, and palpitation of the heart ; then that bearing-down
feeling is dreadfully wearing.
Her husband says, " Now, don't get the blues ! You will
be aJl right after you have taken the doctor's medicine."
But she does not get all right. She grows worse day by
day, until all at once she realizes that a distressing female
complaint is established.
Her doctor has made a mistake.
She loses faith ; hope vanishes : then comes the morbid,
melancholy, everlasting blues. She should have been told
just what the trouble was, but probably she withheld some
information from the doctor, who, therefore, is unable to
accurately locate her particular illness.
Mrs. Pinkliam has relieved thousands of women from
iust this kind of trouble, and now retains their grateful
letters in her library as proof of the great assistance she has
rendered them. This same assistance awaits every sick
woman in the land.

" Dear Mrs. Piwkham: I feel it my duty to write
and tell yon of the benefit I haTe receded from your
wonderful remedies. Before taking- Lydia E. Hole
ham's Vegetable Compound, 1 was a misery to my
self and every one around me. I suffered terrible
pain in my back, head, and right side, was very
nervous, would cry for hours. Menses would appear
sometimes in two weeks, then ag-ain not for three
or four months. I was so tired and weak, could not
sleep nights, sharp pains would dart through my
heart that would almost cause me to fall.
"My mother coaxed me to try Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound. I had no faith in it, but to
please her I did so. The first bottle helped me so
much that I continued its use. I am now well and
weigh more than I ever did in my life." MBS.

may be extracted. In this way many
million dollars' worth of oils, fertiliz
ers and other useful substances are
now saved and the world la so much
the richer. A great deal of sawdust
has always gone to waste, though
many mills have used it to supplement
their fuel supply. Chemical analysts
have been at work on the sawdust
problem and it has been shown clear.y
that it contains very useful olercents
that are worth saving; and now ma
chinery has been invented to extract
these materials. The experiments have
proven that 1,000 pounds of sawdust
will yield about HO pounds of ihar

coal, and equally servlceabe; ISO
pounds of acids, 160 pounds of tar and
a quantity of gaj.es that have ben
tested for heating and illuminating and
found to be excellent for both purpos
es. While the acids, tar and char are
the products particularly deaired it is
said the gases are of commercial value.
A machine has been Invented in Mon
treal for the purpose of distilling sajv
dust and obtaining the desired pro
ducts. Consul General Bittinger
writes that the machine treats about
2,000 pounds of wet sawdust an hour.
As Canada manufactures enormou3
quantities of lumber, it is expected
that the utilization of sawdust In that
country will be an important source of
valuable commodities. There are
twenty places in Europe where oxalic
acid is extracted from sawdust. In
Scotland sawdust is used to make
floor cloth, coarse wrapping paper and
millboard, which is a kind of paste
board used by bookmakers in the cov

California, lilr.l Kills Moakea.
In southern California is a very pe
culiar bird not because of its appear
ance, but because of its habits. It has
several names. The one by which it is
best known is the California road run
ner. It is also often spoken of as the
chaparral cock. The scientists have
classified it as a member of the cuckoo
family, but to the observer who isn't
scientific it appears more like a rela
tive of the pheasant family. The road
runner is a poor flier, and has to get
a running start before it can rise into
the air. It gets the name of road-runner
from the fact that it will keep up
along with a horse and buggy for
miles by means of It3 brisk little legs,
never resorting to its wings, and seem
ingly making little effort. The most
peculiar thing about this bird is its
hatred of snakes and the method it
takes to vent it spite upon tbem. In
the section of country inhabited by
this bird the cactus is a common plant.
When the bird finds a snake taking a
nap in the sun, as is a habit with his
snakeship, it makes baste to gather
j leaves of the cactus and lays them in
a row anout tne sleeping serpent, at a
safe distance. When it has one row
completed it lays a second and a third,
and continues thus to strengthen its
fence until it is confident that the bar
rier will servp the purpose Intended
H then proceeds to awaken the unsus
pecting victim by leaping over him
giving him a spiteful peck as it passes
over. The snake thus awakened starts
to glide away, but brings up against
the prickly spines of the cactus. Then
he terns and tries another direction.
He soon discovers that he is In a trap
and then he gets very angry and races
around the little inelosurv. getting
pricked at every turn. If the snake
geU wise and stops his mad plunging
about tbe bird again hops over him
and stirs him up with other blows
from its sharp bill till the snake, again
frenzied, rushes around among the
sharp spines and receives new wounds.
This continues until the reptile has
punctured bis skin so frequently that
he dies of his injuries. Chicago Rec

cide under such conditions. Whether
one is remorsefully sober or sentimen
tally drunken, suicide is the solace
springing spontaneously to greet

practice only the desperate rush to its
chill embrace. The icy waters of the
lake and river do not woo as did the
Paphian goddess. And among those who
have made a practice of drowning it is
looked upon ns a disagreeable exercise.
Carbolic acid and rough on rats have
features most objectionable.
Besides, one ban moral objections to
self-destruction. Tbe church has cried
anathemas upon It. Society frowns
upon it by making its attempt penal in

True there is the dual path of reform
and work. Along Its broad and
straight but steep and rocky way its
twin aign-po.-U stand side by side,
pointing with unbent fingers to tbe
temple of hope shining afar in the
fields of ease. But the ascent is ardu
ous Nor is it so easily undertaken.
If reform without work Is fruitless,
equally true It Is that work without
reform Is profitless. And to achieve
tbe one and secure the other merely
by determining to do so Is posalble

argued, and it may be conceded that
