Advice to Women.
Every sick end ailing woman,
Every young girl who suffers monthly,
Every women who is approaching maternity.
Every woman who feels that life is a burden.
Every woman who has tried all other means to regain health without success,
Every woman who is going through that critical time — the change of life —
Is invited to write to Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn, Mass., in regard to her trouble, and
the most expert advice telling exactly how to obtain a CURE will be sent abso
lutely free of cost.
The one thing that qualifies a person to give advice on any subject
is experience—experience creates knowledge.
No other person has so wdde an experience with femalo ills nor such
a record of success as Mrs. Pinkham has had.
Over a hundred thousand eases come before her each year. Some
personally, others by mail. And this has been going on for twenty years,
day after clay, and day after day.
Twenty years of constant success — think of the knowledge thus
gained! Surely women are wise in seeking advice from a womau with
such an experience, especially when it is free.
Mrs. I In yes, of Boston, wrote to Mrs. Pinkliam when she was
In great trouble. Her letter shows the result. There are actually
thousands of such letters In Mrs. Pinkham’s possession.
“ Peak Mrs. Pixkham : — I have been under doctors' treatment for female
troubles for some time, but without any relief. They now tell me 1 have a
fibroid tumor. I cannot sit down without great pain, and the soreness extends
up my spine. I have bearing down pains both back and front. My abdomen
is swollen, I cannot wear my clothes with any comfort. Womb is dreadfully
swollen, and I have had flowing spells for three years. My appetite is not
good. I cannot walk or he on my feet for any length of time.
‘•The symptoms of Fibroid Tumor, given in your little book, accurately
describe my case, so I write to you for advice.” — Mrs. E. F. Hates, 253
Dudley St (Iloston), Roxbury, Mass.
“ Dear Mils. Piykham : — I wrote to you describing my symptoms, and
asked your advice. You replied, and I followed all your directions carefully
for several months, and to-day 1 am a well woman.
“ The use of Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound, together
with your advice, carefully followed, entirely expelled the tumor, aud strength
ened the whole system, I can walk miles now.
“ Your Vegetable Compound is worth five dollars a drop. I adviso all
women who are affiictcd with tumors, or any female trouble, to write you for
advice, and give it a faithful trial.”—Mrs. E. F. Hayes, 202 Dudley fit
(lioston), Roxbury, Mass.
Mrs. Hayes will gladly answer any and all letters that may be
addressed to her asking about her illness, and how Mrs. Plnkliain
helped her. „

A Governor's First Dress Suit.
“The first time I ever put on a
dress suit,” said ex-Governor Scofield
of Minnesota, “was at the reception
and ball which followed in the evening
of the day that I was inaugurated. I
remember that had to stand on a
little platform, raised a few Inches
from the floor, while tue crowd pass
ed along and shook hands with Mrs.
Scofield and r yself.
“I weighed just ninety-six pounds at
that time, and was as thin as a match.
Mrs. Scofield is a fleshy woman, and
as I looked at her during a lull in
the procession and then sized up my
own diminutive anatomy, 1 whispered
“ ‘Martha, we must look like the
living skeleton and the fat woman in
the dime museum to these people!’
"That settled Mrs. Scofield for the
balance of the evening, and to save
herself she could not get rid of the
ripples of mirth that would sweep
over her face and break out into peals
of laughter as the ridiculousness ot
the situation appeared to her.’

FIGHT WITH ESKIMO DOGS
In a long journey by tied, in the
region of Great Bear I^ake. Mr. Eger
ton R. Young had a trying adventurs
with Eskimo dogs, which he relates in
“My Dogs in the Northland.’’ He had
traveled several days with his own
dogs to the point where the Indians
were to meet him and replace the
tired dogs with fresh ones. When the
dogs were changed, his guide, who had
accompanied him throughout the jour
ney to this point, gave him a heavy
whip, and said, “Now do not speak a
word and there will he no trouble.
They do not like white people, but if
you do not speak to them they will
never suspect, in their anxiety to get
“I looked the fierce brutes over,”
says Mr. Young, “placed my heavy
whip so I could instantly seize it, and
made up my mind that I was in for a
wild ride. The owner of the dogs ap
plied his long whiplash to them. and
away we started at a furious gallop.
“We had traveled some distance,
when I was startled by a splendid
black fox, which dashed out of a rocky
island on our left. He struck across
our trail, and made for another island
of rocks half a mile to our right.
“The dogs fells into disorder and
sped after him. As we had fifteen
miles yet to go. it was not safe to be
racing after a fox on this great lake.
So I resolved to break the silence and
bring the dogs back to the trail, even
if I had to fight them.
"Bracing myself on my knees, 1
gripped the heavy whip so that 1
could use the handle of It as a club.
Then 1 shouted to the dogs in Indian
to stop and turn to the left.
"The Instant they heard ray voice
they did stop—so suddenly thnt my
cariole went sliding on. past the rear
dog of the train. They came at me
furiously. The leader of tho train, the
fiercest of the four, began the attack.
It was well for me that he did, for he
swung the others about into such a
position that only one at a time could
reach me. As he sprang to meet me
I guarded my face with one hand
which I wrapped In the furs, while I
belabored the dog over the head with
the oak handle of the whip, which was
hard as iron.
“Three or four good blows were all
that he needed. With a howl he
dropped on the ice, while the next
one in the train tried to get hold of
mo. One fortunate clip on the side of
nis head sent him tumbling over his
loader. Then 1 hail to face the third
dog. which proved the ugliest cus
tomer of all, for his head took a pro
digious amount of thumping before he
yielded. Failing to get hold of me, he
tore the robes and tile side of the
raiiole, which was made of parch
“it was fortunate for me that the
traces of the fourth dog, fastened to
the front of the cariole, so held him
back that he was unable to do more
than growl at me.
“When I had conquered the third
dog, 1 uncoiled the lash of the whip
and shouted, 'Marche!' The leader
wheeled to the left, and away they
flew. I had no hesitancy in speaking
now. The dogs showed no more de
sire for battle, but only a desperate
desire to reach the end of the jour
ney.”—Montreal Family Herald.
SHE BOILED THE SEEDS
Just at the northwest border of By
fleld parish lies the settlement called
Dogtown. They raise a Aery peculiar
cucumber, early, richly-flavored and
singularly smooth on the outside. De
termined to keep the plant to them
selves, as it brought in a good in
come, they agreed never to sell a
seed outside the settlement. But a
certain grocer in Newburyport deter
mined to have some of these seeds.
He commenced by making a friend
of an old dame who occasionally came
into his store to fade, by treating her
to sundry1 potations of cordial, a plug
of tobacco, and snuff. One day. after
the good dante had SAvallowed two
bumpers of peppermint cordial for a
pain, the subject was broached, tell
ing the dame that he knew It was
against their rules to part with the
seeds, but he had a friend Avho Avas
bound for New Orleans who wished
lor some of them to take with him,
and he thought if she had no objec
tion he should like some as it would
in no way interfere Avith the market.
The dame promised the grocer the
seeds and got a quarter of a pound
of snuff on the spot, with a promise
of a bottle of cordial upon the de
livery of the goods.
The next week, true to her word,
she came with the seeds and got her
bottle. The following season the gro
cer planted his seeds with a great deal
of care. Cucumber time came, but he
had not even a vine. lie dug up the
seeds and found that they had not
commenced to germinate. So the next
lime the dame came into the store
he told her the fact.
"How do you know?” she said. "I
thought you were going to send them
to New Orleans.”
“Yes, but I kept a few to try them
myself and see how they were going to
work,” said the grocer.
"Don't ye 'spose I knowod all that."
returned the dame. “You, 'port mer
chants, ar’n't r.igh so sharp as you
think you be. I know'd what you was
up to, so I thought I'd fixe ye. 1 biled
them 'ere seeds."—Boston Globe.
AFTER THE WELSH RAREBIT J
It was long past midnight nnd Bil
kins tvas asleep. He was dreaming
sweetly, and this is what he dreamed:
He had been appointed chief care
taker of the animals of the estate of
John D. Rockefeller. All went
smoothly until a strike was declared
against his authority. The revolt was
headed by an enormous tomcat, w'ho
was the Sam Parks of the Rockefeller
animals. Bilkins remonstrated with
the feline walking delegate. He did
not know where ho learned the lan
guage, but he was talking “cat talk”
to the leader of the strikers. During
the negotiations the tomcat took the
shape of a kangaroo, only he walked
on his hind legs in dignified fashion
instead of leaping about.
Bilkins grew terrified and sheuted
for help, still In the cat language.
The walking delegate then picked up
a baseball bat and Bilkins again cried
out for aid, but the cat brought the
bat down on Bilkins’ head with ter
, rifle force. Then Bilklns woke up.
His wife was thumping him vlgor
Subconsciously he caught his last
feline cry, and knew he had had a
| bad case of nightmare. Mrs.
Bilklns knew it, too, and when her
husband tried to explain it to her his
tongue, still tangled with the intrica
cies of feline language, did not put
forth intelligible Anglo-Saxon, and
she pounded him still harder. Bilklns
was now sufficiently awake to grasp
the situation, and he began to laugh.
He laughed so hard that he could ex
plain nothing, and his wife still
thought he was struggling with the
nightmare. Her thumps came with
redoubled vigor, and as she pounded
him she began to cry.
“Hold on! I'm awake now,” Bil
klns managed to gasp.
“I’m so glad," sobbed Mrs. Bilklns.
“Do you know you were yowling just
like a cal.”
; Bilklns has sworn off on rarebits.
ENGLAND’S TASK IN AFILICA f
England has had hard luck in
Africa, from Egypt to the Transvaal.
What with fanatics who achieve hea
ven through a violent death and Fuz
zy-Wuzzies who are disinclined to
shoot up their blood relations, the
Mad Mullah has proved a formidable
and relentless foe. The latest disas
ter comes from Somaliland, which
the British have for a long time been
trying to pacify. The Mad Mullah’s
mission in life is to preach the gos
pel according to his lights and to cut
ap, destroy and annihilate British
and Egyptian troops sent to remon
strate with him.
On April 18 he caught Major
Plunkett, with a command of 200
3ikhs and African rifles, at Gum
Durru, which is somewhere in the
center of Somaliland. Nine British
Dfficera and nearly the entire force of

(which may or may not have con

factories), he returned to the desert
to revive the religious spirit of the
tribesmen and back up his new creed
with Martinis and patent ammuni
tion, which he had in great plenty.
A bold man and a prophet (who
possessed rifles), the fame of the
Mad Mullah extended Into Abyssinia;
the tribes to the number of 80,000
insane men gathered to his standard,
and in 1899 with an army at his heels

Victoria's Only Joke.
The late Queen Victoria, though she
had literary ambitions and was as tal
ented as became a queen, was not
known rs a wit, says the Philadelphia
^edger. Her one recorded Joke,_ how
ever, is a good one and should be pre
served. The story goes that the aged
Duke of Wellington having paid his
sovereign a visit on a very wet day,
she anxiously Inquired what boots he
was wearing. “The people call them
Wellingtons,” said the duke. "What
nonsense,” exclaimed the queen.
"Where, I should like to know, could
you find a pair of Wellington?”
Odd Mistake m Dictionaries.

Instances of definitions, according to

coaxation as “the art of coaxing,” in
stead of the croaking of frogs; and
: pastern as "the knee of a horse,” a
blunder which was copied by subse
quent dictionary makers. Webster,
too, in his first edition, went astray
in cricket terms. Leg, as a verb, he
defines “to strike in the leg; used in
the game of cricket.” Wicket-keeper
