A Valuable Agent.
The glycerine employed in Dr. Pierce’s
medicines greatly enhances the medi
cinal properties which it extracts and
ho ds in solution much better than alco
hol would. It also possesses medicinal
properties of its own, being a valuable
demulcent, nutritive, antiseptic and anti
ferment. It adds greatly to the efticacv
of the Black Cherry bark. Golden Seal
root. Stone root and Queen’s root, con
tained in "Golden Medical Discovery" in
subduing chronic, or lingering coughs,
bronchial, throat and lung affections,
for all of which these agents are recom
mended by standard medical authorities.
In all cases where there is a wasting
awav of flesh, loss of appetite, with
weak stomach, as in the early stages of
consumption, there can be no "doubt that
glycerine acts as a valuable nutritive and
aids the Golden Seal root. Stone root,
Queen's root and Black Cherrybark in
promoting digestion and building up the
flesh and strength, controlling the cough
and bringing about a healthy condition
of the whole system. Of course, it must
not be expected to work miracles. It will
not cure consumption except in its earlier
stages. It will cure very severe, obstin
ate. chronic coughs, bronchial and laryn
geal troubles, aid chronic sore throat
with hoarseness. In acute coughs it is
not so effective. It is in the lingering
coughs, or those of long standing, even
when accompanied by bleeding from
lungs, that it has performed its most
marvelous cures. Send for and read the

In front of a drinking place in Ful
ton street stood a brewer's dray and
the portly, prosperous looking horses
attached to it were at their midday
meal. Haughtily they tossed their
heads, scattering the oats from their
well filled nosebags as if to empha
size their opulence. Other horses
standing in the street and engaged
with scantily filled nosebags from
which they struggled to extract the
last particle of grain, kept one eye
upon the haughty pair with a look
which seemed to conceal envy under
an expression which said as plainly
as words: "What vulgar ostentation!”
Nearby stood a scrawny old white
horse attached to a ramshackle cart.
His expression was one of profound
humility. His ribs showred through
his hide and his Roman nose was un
adorned by any bag of grain. All his
expression seemed to say was: “What
a blessing it is to be able to watch
the rich enjoying themselves!” His
humility under the trying circum
stances reminded one of those starv
ing Parisians who, before the French
revolution, used to accept with grati
tude the privilege of crowding the
galleries of the royal dining room to
watch the king and his family at din
When the brewery horses had fin
ished their luncheon their rubicund
driver appeared, took off their nose
bags and mounting his seat drove
away. With a celerity surprising in
such a bag of bones, the humble old
horse moved up to the place vacated
by the prosperous team and began to
■eat the oats left scattered on the
pavement. Lazarus did not eat more
greedily the crumbs which fell from
the rich man’s table than did that old,
white horse devour the grain which
fell from the nosebags of the brewery
team. He cleaned the pavement as if
it had been gone over with a fine
toothed comb and then, with a sigh
of repletion which seemed to say:
“Fate cannot harm me—I have
dined,” he settled back into his medi
tations.—New York Press.

Very curious were some of the ex
planations given by Chinamen of the
recent earthquakes which have been
felt at Hongkong, Canton and Macao.
The Hongkong Daily Press tells about
them: “The famous dragon whose
privilege it h'as been to give an oc
casional shock to the earth’s crust is
not held responsible for the recent
scare in Macao and elsewhere. Some
Chinese attribute the last shocks to
the water-dragon of Canton, whose
anger has been raised by the reclama
tion works. Coolies are dumping daily
boatloads of sand and stone on the
poor dragon’s back, and the beast nat
urally feels hurt.
“It appears, however, that the real
causes of the earthquakes were the
Macao crabs! Here is the story:
Close by the hot springs in the neigh
borhood of Macao stands a small vil
lage wherein lives an old woman who
has the misfortune to be the mother
of an unworthy young man whose sole
occupation is fishing. A few days
previous to the first earthquake shock
experienced in Macao the young man
returned home with a couple of crabs
and a few small fish.
“Nothing extraordinary was noticed
at first, but when the crabs had been
boiled one of them presented a pe
culiar appearance, as on the red back
ground of its shell stood in gold relief
a design in white which resembled a
Chinese character. Neighbors were
called and the wise man of the village
soon explained that it was the king
of the crabs that had found its way
into the old woman's kettle.
“Thereupon the vilage prophet pre
dicted that some great calamity would
visit the unfortunate village. Mean
while the crabs of Macao and the
neighborhood, having learned the fate
of their king, assembled in great num
bers, filling up every available hole,
and started to shake the earth. Thus
was their displeasure at the death of
the king crab clearly shown!”
COCKTAIL AT TH'REE FOUKS
“I was standing in the baTroom in
a resort at Three Forks,” said a trav
eling man, “waiting for the proprie
tor to arrive, in the hope of placing a
small order. While I was waiting,
two cowboys, wrapped in tur coats,
their own dignity and a reputation as
the top riders of the country which
stretches away toward the head ot
Willow Creek, came into the saloon
and, marching up to the bar, demand
ed a cocktail.
“The bartender looked nonplussed
for a moment, but he was not to be
shut out, for he grabbed the biggest
glass he could find behind the bar and
immediately got busy. If there was
anything there he missed putting into
that glass, from the salt and pepper
sauce used to flavor the beer, to the
snipping from the ends of the cigars
which he found in the cigar cutter, I
could not see it, and when he had
finally finished he had two big beer
glasses full of the mixture.
The boys both tasted the beverage,
and it did not taste good. Each had
unlimbered a big gun and, playfully
toying with the weapons, they suggest
ed that the bartender drink his own
mixture. It required some persuasion,
but finally, to avoid trouble, he swal
i lowed the contents of both glasses.
‘Now, make your will, you would-be
poisoner,’ shouted the punchers and
solemnly they put their guns back
where they belonged, treated the
house to the cigars and fadded away
into the distance, their horses hitting
only the high spots as they disappear
ed up the valley.
“And I tell you, the impromptu bar
tender had good occasion to make his
will. For three of four hours he was
the sickest man I ever saw, and it
took the services of a doctor, who
worked over him for an hour or two, to
bring him back to life again.”—Ana
‘B'REAKIflG COLTS TO HALTE'R
From the very day of his advent
into the world a thoroughbred colt is
man-handled, says the Metropolitan
Magazine. At first he will be inclined
out of sheer desert instinct to slip
around on the other side of his mother
when the man draws too near, but he
gets over that and quickly. The man
coaxes and pets him into a quiet and
teaches him to trust the two-'.egged
animal. Once that trust is obtained
it is never abused. Thoroughbreds,
until they get into races, are never
whipped, are never even spoken to
harshly. Theirs is a life of gentle
handling and soft words.
Except that he is made used to the
hands of mankind, nothing is done for
him save to watch the health of his
dam and keep him out of mischief
until he is ready to wean. Then a
light halter without a strap is put on
him. By this time he has grown so
accustomed to being handled that any
thing a man may do to him seems
right and proper. So he doesn't mind
so much when the first restraining
sign is made to him. He Is given the
halter free at the beginning that he
may learn the feel of it on his head.
There is no leading of him about and
worrying him into unnatural heat. He
is worry enough in this separation
from the mother. He is given a home
with fellows of his age and like family
distresses, and there he learns self
denial, and is in fine humor for the
handlers when he is to be halter brok
en. He hardly knows when this event
occurs to him. He is led away from
the paddocks down into the open
fields and allowed to graze with the
crowd, while a boy gently restrains
him with the halter strap if he ven
tures too far. So easily and natural
ly is It all done that before he realizes
it the halter control over him is com
HOJIG'R 'RESE'RVE'D FOTt
There is a popular belief in the ex
treme northwest that the north pole
will be discovered by a musher, and
not by any scientific polar expedition.
This belief is based on the conviction
that a gold stampede will eventually
be started toward north latitude 90
degrees, and that inushers will rush in
where arctic explorers have feared to
tread. So completely unknown to
fame is this newcomer in the race for
pole that to the majority of people
the name suggests nothing but cereal

Gilbert Parker, the novelist, who
finds bis most congenial theme in
French-Canadian life, has made • his
readers familiar with "Marcbe-l’-en!”
the cry with which drivers of dog
teams urge forward their panting ani
mals. French-Canadian trappers were
among the earliest white men in the
tar northwest, and American prospect
crs on the Yukon soon learned to goad
their dogs on with the same cry, with
out, however, understanding the
French, which, in their mouths, was
rapidly corrupted to “Mushon!” to this
day an Alaska dog driver's equivalent
for “Gee up!”
Dog drivers generally run with the
team and therefore from “Mush-on”
has come the noun musher, used all
over Alaska and the Yukon territory
to designate a trailsman. The musher
is generally prospector, stampeder and
trailsman all rolled into one, and Alas
ka trails are such uncertain quantities
that he has frequently to make his own
precedents over newly frozen sea and
trackless snow. The musher achieves
most of his stampeding to new gold
fields during the arctic winter, for then
the ribid sea becomes a highway and
mighty rivers need no bridging.—Sun

LYDIA E. P1NKHAM
A BRIEF SKETCH OF HER LIFE
How the Vegetable Compound Had Its Birth and
How the “Panic of ’73” Caused it to be Offered
for Public Sale in Drug Stores.
THE STORY READS LIKE A ROMANCE
This remarkable woman, whose
maiden name was Estes, was born in
Lynn, Mass., February 9th. 1819. com
ing from a good old Quaker family.
For many years she taught school, and
during her career as a teacher she be’
came known as a woman of an alert
and investigating mind, an earnest
seeker after knowledge, and above all,
she was possessed with a wonderfully
In 1843 she married Isaac Pinkham,
a builder and real estate operator, and
their early married life was marked by
prosperity and happiness. They had
four children, three sons and a daugh
In those good old-fashioned days few
drugs were used in medicines: people
relied upon nature's remedies, roots
and herbs, which are to-day recognized
as more potent and efficacious in con
trolling diseases than any combination
Mrs. nnsnam irom ner youtn iook a
deep interest in medicine, in botany—
the study of roots and herbs, their
characteristics, and power over dis
ease; she believed that as nature
so bountifully provides food for the
body so she also provides medicine for
the ijls and weaknesses of the body,
in the roots and herbs of the field,
and as a wife, mother and sympathetic
friend, she often made use of her
knowledge of roots and herbs in pre
paring medicines for her family and
Knowing of so much suffering among
her sex. after much study and re
search, Mrs. Pinkham believed that
the diseases of women have a com
mon cause, and she set to work to
find a common remedy—not at that
time as a source of profit, but simplj
that she might aid the suffering.
How her efforts have been rewarded
the women of the world know to-day.
In 1873 the financial crisis struck
Lynn. Its length and severity was too
much for the large real estate inter
ests of the Pinkham family, as this
class of business suffered most from
this fearful depression, so when the
Centennial year dawned it found their
property swept away.
At this point the history of Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound com
The three sons and daughter, with
their mother, combined forces to re
store the family fortune. They re

had so often made from roots and
herbs for such of her women neigh
bors and friends who were sick and
ailing. Its success in those cases had
been wonderful—its fame had spread,
and calls were coming from miles
around for this efficacious vegetable
They had no money, and little
credit. Their first laboratory was the
kitchen, where roots and herbs w'ere
steeped on the stove, gradually filling
a gross of bottles. Then came the
question of selling it, for always be
fore they had given it away free.
They hired a job printer to run oft
some pamphlets setting forth the mer
its of the medicine, now cal'.ed Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
and these pamphlets were distributed
by the Pinkham sons in Boston, New
York and Brooklyn.
The wonderful curative properties of
the medicine were, to a great extent,
self-advertising, for whoever used it
recommended it to others, and the de
mand gradually increased.
In 1877, by combined efforts, the
family had saved enough money to
commence newspaper advertising on a
small scale, and from that time the
growth and success of the enterprise
was assured, until to-day Lydia E.
Pinkham and her Vegetable Compound
have become household words every
where. and thousands of pounds of
roots and herbs are used annually in
making this great remedv for woman's
Although Lydia E. Pinkham passed
to her reward some years ago, the per
petuation of tier great work was
guarded by her foresight.
During her long and eventful experi
ence she was ever methodical in her
work and was careful to preserve a
record of every case that came to her
attention. The case of every sick
woman who applied to her for advice
—and there were thousands—received
careful study, and the details, includ
ing symptoms, treatment and results,
were recorded for future reference,
and to-day these records, together with
thousands made since, are available to
sick women the world over, and repre
sent a vast collaboration of informa
tion regarding the treatment of wom
an's ills which, for authenticity and
accuracy, ran hardly be equaled in any
library in the world.
Another act of foresight on the part
of Lydia E. Pinkham was to see that
some one of her family was trained to
carry on her work, and with that end
in view, for years before her death,
had as her chief assistant her daugh
ter-in-law the present Mrs. Pinkham.
Therefore, under the guidance and
careful training of Lydia E. Pinkham,
and a vast experience of her own,
