LOVES THt PRAIRIES.
Mrs. Hutjhson, of Chicago, whose LI
(letter follows, is ' another woman- in high
'position who owes her health to the use of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
! "Dear Mrs. Pink ham: I suffered for (several years -with general
weakness and bearing: -down pains, caused by womb trouble. My appe
tite was fitful, and I would lie awake for hours, and could not sleep,
until I seemed more weary in the morning than when I retired. After
reading one of your advertisements I decided to try the merits of Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and I am so glad I did. No one
can descrile the good it did me. I took three bottles faithfully, and
besides building up my general health, it drove all disease and jtoison
out of niv lK)dy, and made me feel as epry and active as a young girl.
Mrs. Pinkham's medicines are certainly all they nre claimed to be."

Mrs. J'inkham TVlIs How Ordinary Tfasks Produce Displacements.
i Apparently trifling incidents in woman's daily life frequently produce
displacement of the womb. A slip on the stairs, lifting during menstruation,
standing at a counter, running a sewing machine, or attending to the mo&t
ordinary tasks may remit in displacement, mid a train of serioiisevils is started.
The. first indication of such trouble should be the signal for quick actum.
Don't let the condition become chronic through neglect or a mistaken idea
that vou can overcome it br exe.rc'mo or leaving it alone.
More than a million women have regained health by the use of I,ydla I'-.
Pinkliuin's Vegetable Compound.
If thp slightest trouble appears which you do not understand
write, to Mrs. I'inkham, at Lynn, Mass., for her advice, and a lew
tiinHy words from her will show you the right thing to do. this
advice costs vou nothing, but it may mean life or happiness or both.
Mrs. Lelah Stowell, 177 Wellington
St., Kingston, Ont., writes:
"Dear Mns. Pixkham: You are indeed a
godsend to women, and if they all knew what
ynu could do for them, there would le no need

Lvrtia K. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound can always be relied upon to restore
klt. tn women who thus suffer. t is a sovereign cure for
the worst forms of female complaints. that bearing-down feeling, weak

Went of Western Canada, and tbe fol

friendship letter written about March

vicinity. In this letter is given some
idesj of the climate, social, educational
and religious conditions of Alberta, the
beautiful hind of sunshine and happy

Americans have made Western Catada

writes of it as follows: "I know II

have a beautiful view of the moun
tains, and it seems wonderful to me to
see home after home for tulles, and It
is being thickly settled all around us.
With the exception of the last few
days, which have been cold and
stormy, we have had beautiful spring
weather ever since I came. The days
are beautiful. I call this the 'land of
the sun,' ns it seems to be always
shining; the nights are cold and frosty.
On arriving here I was so greatly sur
prised in every way. IMdsbury Is quite

goes. "One could lay down rules 103

"I wonder," said tlie Major, "how
many of the old war corresiiondeiits or
furry years ago are living now. I re
nlember as among the living only
Tovviineiid, Held, Kuray, and a few oth
ers. The most of tlietn have crossed the
l.ue with the great soldiers whose cam
paigns they followed and whose battles
they described. 1 have often wondered
if the nerve tension that told so hiavlly
against the men who strove iu battle
and shortened their lives did not also
'.inrtcn the lives of the men who wrote
of battles under the stress of the condi
tions that prevailed at tho front or in
the rear of an army. Certainly, the ser
vice was a strain on the nerves, wlulher
the correspondent wrote of a battle in
progress or in the mniM or tne uisiress-
ing confusion that followed a battle.
'"Here at home a man cannot write a
busiiK ss letter or a short article for a
newspaper if lie is' subjected to ordin
ary interruptions. I saw the Colonel in
a frenzy the other day because three
ladies came in, one after another, while
he was preparing an argument. And
yet he had all his materials at hand,
mid the interruptions were not of a try
ing character. Think of the strain under
which an army correspondent wrote,
with the uproar and confusion of battle
pressing on his nerves. Seeing only a
part of the field, he must write of the
whole. Dimly comprehending the man
euvers based on. strategy or exigency,
he must describe all In their relations
to defeat or victory. When command
ers were beside themselves with excite
niciit lie must in some way get informa
tion front them.
"The correspondent was compelled
nut only to get Information, but to
measure Its value, and. dazed or excit
ed, lie was compelled to write with the
calmness of a war historian and at the
same time to portray graphically the
battle scenes. After bending nil his
energies to composition he was ofu-n
compelled, to ride as wildly as a charg
ing trooper to start his dispatch or let
ter northward. The service was very
trying, and little wonder that so many
of the obi war correspondents died in
what the world called their prime.
There were men, of course, who wrote
of battles without swing them, but I
have in mind the men who rode with
generals in battle and who shared the
privations and dangers of army life.
There were many such, but not many
of them are alive."
"Correspondeaits," said Dr. A. W.
Gray, "during the war and after the
war missed n great many adventures,
the story of which even now seems
worth telling. I have in mind the ex
perience of Captain Merrick of Corn
puny (J. Fifty-first Illinois, in Alabama
in istjii. While in the service Captain
Merrick had noticed the character of
the country about Bridgeport and De
catur, and in lMMi he went South to
prospect for the location of Northern
colonies on unoccupied lands, and to
consult owners as to terms of purchase.
"lie met with a cordial reception si t

how to reach the lands for sale. lie
hired a hoise and buggy and drove on
his way to lilackwater Uiver Into a dis
trict: in which there were very few
houses. After spending tile day In the
wild"i iiess lie started on his return trip,
but encountered a heavy rainstorm,
and darkness coming on earlier than lie
expeitiil. he lost his way. After two
hours' driving in the rain and dark lie
saw a light In the distance and made his
way toward It. lie came upon a cabin
and knocked at the door. In answer to
the question who was there lie replied
that he was a stranger seeking shelte r
from the rain. He was bluntly Inform
ed that the owner of the cabin did not
kj"cp a hotel and could not accommo
date him under any circumstances.
"When Merrick was told that there
was no bouse nearer than seven miles
he naked that he be allowed to sleep
on the porch outside, and that his horse
be fed and given shelter. Finally the
surly oceupnnt of the cabin agreed to
this, and came out with a lantern. Ills
appearance was against him, and he
had an ugly and suspicious look In his
eye. He held his lantern high to have
a good look at Merrtck's face, and then
went with the Captain to the stable and
waited while tbe latter looked after his
"On their return to the cabin the Cap
tain suggested he be given a blanket
and be permitted to lie down on the
porch. Thereupon the huge Alnbunilan
planted himself squarely In front of the
Captain and gnld menacingly: 'Who lie
you. any way? Strangers looking for
land don't go prowling around at night.
Where you come from?' The Captain
said plainly that be wis from the
North, and that he wns traveling at
night because he had loat Ms way.
Then, more roughly, tbe Alabnmlim
said: 'You have been here before. You
were In the Yankee army.'
"The Captain wondered If his re
volver was In good condition, and Ad
mitted that he had erred In northern
Alabama In the Union army. 'I thought
so,' uld the other. 'I remember yon.
Yon were prowling around this game
neighborhood when Boddoy'a cavalry
came on your track. Retreating toward

two buckets of water. You made that

daring he set an example to his young

and went on loading and firing without
showing in his resolute face any sign
of tlie agony lie was suffering.
Tlie battle had been raging for near

A Haughty Rebel.
In tlie last winter of tlie war, by
reason of sickness, I became separated
from my regiment, but upon recovery
I got a full share of soldiering at Nash
ville, under old Pap Thomas, when we
sent Hood flying southward. I had
good opportunity on this occasion to
note the valor of our colored troops,
who are said to have "fought nobly."
One day two colored soldiers came into
camp with a dilapidated but haughty
Confederate captain. He had strayed
beyond his lines and 1ho colored boys
somehow got onto the business and
they went for him. "Hold on dur,
boss," said the leading one, advancing
upon him with lixed bayonet. "What
do you mean, you black rascal, to talk
to me in that ma iiner V" replied the
Confederate, "Hear dat, now; black
rascal, you say? Don't you 'peat any
more such language to us we's Uni
ted States soldiers, we is. and don't
you talk back." The Confederate en
deavored first to threaten, but finding
mat would not do. then to coax, and
then to bribe, all of which failed. Then
falling back again upon his dignity he
said it was highly improper that he
should surrender to two colored sol
diers, as he was a captain. He pro
posed that one of the soldiers should
go to camp and get an officer while the
other soldier remained to guard him.
At this the two soldiers laughed heart
ily, and then they began to prick him
with their bayonets, and In this man
ner they walked him Into camp, tho
sorriest-looking rebel I ever saw. He
demanded of our officers that they
should punish the black scoundrels for
their Insults to him. "Insults!" shout
ed Lieutenant Simmons, of my regi
ment. "They are incapable of insult
ing you. That you are alive now Is
evidence of their generous and noblo
character. If the situation had been
reversed you would have killed them."

On one of the marches near Mem

boys were using all the mils of the
fences for camp fires, Issued an order
that only the top rails should be taken.
Tlie regiment, ignorant of higher math

one rail was gone the next one was
the top, and so It turned out that all
rails were top rails, and It took Just
seven men to demonstrate that fact
on a seven-rail fence.
