woman may be permanently
cured of monthly pains by tak
ing Lydia E. Pinkbatn’s Vege

“ Yvimo Womex :—I had frequent
headaches of a severe nature, dark
spots before my eyes, and at my men
strual periods I suffered untold agony.
A member of the lodge adrised me to
try Lydia F. Plnkbam’s Vege
table Compound, but I only scorned
good advice and felt that my case was
hopeless, but she kept at me until I
bought a bottle and started taking
it. 1 soon had the best reason In the
world to change my opinion of the
medicine, as each day my health im
proved. and finally I was entirely with
otft pain at my menstruation periods.
I am most grateful.’' — Nbttib Black

The February Atlantic offers a
group of leading articles which can
be neglected by no person earnestly
concerned about the urgent issues in
America today. These papers, in
which subjects of the first importance
are treated by the men best qualified
to discuss them with authority and
vigor, are: "Wall Street and the
Country," by Charles A. Cor.ant, a
treatise on the uses and abuses of
the money power, with which the
number opens: followed by a sensible
and dispassionate paper on "Lynch
ing : a Southern View." by Clarence
H. Poe, and a thoughtful discussion
of the question. “Is Commercialism
in Disgrace?" by John Graham Brooks.

A Physician's Advice.
Yorktown. Ark., March 7th.—Dodd’s
Kidney Pills must not be confounded
I with the ordinary patent medicine,
i They are a new discovery, a specific
for all diseases of the Kidneys and
have been accepted by physicians
only after careful tests In extreme
cases. Dr. 1,eland Williamson, of this
place heartily indorses Dodd's Kld

; neys. pains in the back, soreness in
j the region of the Kidneys, foul-smell
! ing urine and cloudy or thickened con
dition of the urine, discharges of pus
or corruption. Gout, Rheumatism, In
flammation and Congest Ion of the Kid
neys and all kindred complaints.”
Continuing he says:
“I could mention many cases in
which I have prescribed Dodd's Kid
ney Pills with success. For instance,
Mr Robert Weeks farmer, malaria,
haematuria or swamp fever three
times, kidneys weakened, continual
pain and soreness in back, which

payments have been made in install
ments from the penitentiary cash fund,
the auditor having refused to audit
the account. The original bill hand
ed in by the warden was for $300, but
the board thought this excessive. Be
cause of all the squabble in settling
the account of Neigenfiend's taking off
the board adopted a resolution to pay
in the future only $150 for an execu
tion, the warden to receive tnat
amount and pay the expenses. This
was done in the Rhea case, and Stry
ker received $73 for his part of the
affair, though all of the bill has not
yet been paid.

How Jack London Works.
Jack London’s new novel, “The Sea- j
Wolf,” which began with the new year
in the Century, intensities interest in
this remarkable young writer. Mr.
London is authority for the statement
that he does his work the first thing
in the morning, right after breakfast,
averaging a thousand words a day,
five days in the week. When pushed,
he has written over a thousand words
daily for many weeks at a stretch;
and has occasionally accomplished
two thousand words every day for two
weeks. He w rites slow ly, making few
changes in his first draft. At the end
of each day he typew rites what he has
written, and this is the completed
Lived 113 Years.
From Castlebar, County Mayo, there
comes a story of the death of James
Conway, a farmer, who attained the
age of 113 years. The father of
James Conway did not die so young,
for his years were six score and six—
that is, 12k. The grandfather’s final
age was 130 years. These statistics
are the less unlikely because in the
same county an old man died not
long ago who was proved to have at
tained the age of at least 120 years.
Jame3 Conway remembered the
French Invasion in 1798, which was
led by General Humbert, who won
the battle known as “The Races of
He Abolishes “Presenting Arms.”
The French minister of war. Gen
eral Andre, is one of the best abused
men in France because of his recently
announced purpose to promote equal
ity in the ranks of the army. To fur
ther this object he has recently abol
ished the custom of “presenting arms”
as a mark of respect. He is accused
of fostering socialism in the French
ranks and of deliberately following
out a policy of religious and political
persecution. He condemned to two
years hard service in the ranks sixty
Polytechnic students who rebelled
against the severity of an examina
tion. General Andre is a great favor
ite with the common soldiers. He be

Farming Very Successful.
By Western or Northwest Canada la
tisuaily meant the great agricultural
country west of Ontario, and north of
Minnesota, North Dakota, and Mon
tana. Part of it ic agricultural prairie,
treeless In place*, park like in others,
part is genuine plains, well adapted ta
rattle ranches; part requires Irriga
tion for successful tillage, most of It
does not. The political divisions of
this region are the Province of Mani
toba and the territorial district of As
sinlbola, Saskatchewan, Alberta and
Athabaska. At present, however, the
latter is too remote for Immediate
practical purposes.
The general character of the soil ol
Western Canada is a rich, black, clay
loam with a clay subsoil. Such a soil
la particularly rich In food for the
wheat plant. The subsoil is a clay,
which retain* the winter frost until It
Is thawed out by the warm rays of
the sun and drawn upward to stimu
late tne growth of the young wheat, so
that even In dry seasons wheat Is a
gtiod crop. The clay soil also retains
the heat of the sun later in the snn»
m»r and assists in the early ripening
of the grain. It is claimed that cul
tivation haa the effect of increasing
the temperature of the soil several
degrees, as well as the air above It.
Western Canada climate is good—
cold In winter, hot In summer, but
with cool nights. Violent storms of
any kind are rare. The rainfall Is not
heavy. It varies with places, but aver
ages about 17 inches. It falls usually
at the time the growing crops need It.
The Department of the Interior, Ot
tawa, Canada, has agents established
at different points throughout the
United States who will be pleased to
forward an Atlas of Western Canada
and give such other information as to
railway rate, etc., as may be required.
That agriculture In Western Canada
pays is shown by the number of testi
monials given by farmers. The fok
lowing is an extract made from a leU
ter from a farmer near Moose Jaw;
“At the present time I own sixteen
hundred acres of land, fifty horses and
a large pasture fenced containing a
thousand acres. These horses run out
all winter and come in in the spring
quite fat. A man with money judi
ciously expended will make a compe
tence very shortly. I consider in the
last six years the increase in the
value of my land haa netted me forty
thousand dollars."
