Praise Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
Women from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from all sections
of this great country, no city so large, no village so small
but that some woman has written words of thanks for
health restored by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound. No woman who is suffering from the ills peculiar
to her sex should rest until she hasgiven this famous remedy
a trial. Is it not reasonable to believe that what it did for
these women it will do for any sick woman ?
Wonderful Case of Mrs. Stephenson,
on the Pacific Coast.
Independence, Oreoon. "I was sick with what four doctors
called Nervous Prostration, was treated by them for several years,
would bo better for a whilo then back in tno old way again. I hiul
palpitation of tho heart very bad, fainting spells, and was so nervous
that a spoon dropping to tho iloor would nearly kill me, could not
lift tho lightest weight without making mo sick; in fact was about' as
sick and miscrablo as a person could be. I saw your medicines ad
vertised and thought I would try them, and am so thankful I did for
they helped me at once. I took about a dozen bottles of Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and also used tho Sanative Wash.
Sinco then I havo used them whenever I felt sick. vYour remedies
aro tho only doctor I employ. You are at liberty to publish this let
ter." Mrs. W. Stephenson, Independence, Oregon.
A Grateful Atlantic Coast Woman.
IIodqdon, Me. "I feel it a duty I owo to all suffering women to
tell what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vcgetablo Compound did for mo. Ono
year ago I found myself a terrible sull'orer. 1 had pains in both sides
and such a soreness I could scarcely straighten up at times. BIy
back ached. I had no appetite and was so nervous I could not sleep,
then I would be bo tired mornings that I could scarcely get around.
It seemed almost impossible to movo or do a bib of work and I
thought I never -would bo any better until I submitted to an opera
tion. I commenced taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vcgetablo Compouiyl
and soon felt liko a new woman. I had no pains, slept well, had good,
appetite and was fat and could do almost all my own work for a fam
ily of four. I shall always feel that I owo my good health to your
medicine." Mrs. Hayward' Sowehs, Ilodgdon, Maino.
For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vcgetablo
Compound lias been tho standard remedy for fe
male ills. No ono sick with woman's all monts
docs justice to herself if slio docs not try this fa
mous medlcino made from roots and herbs, it
has restored ho many suffering womentohcalth.

No Cure for Cancer Yet.
In his annual report Dr. 12. F. Hash

search in the laboratories of tho im

members of tho society that during tho
paBt year thoro had been 12 claims
to tho discovery of a cure for ennccr.
All of thesohad been Investigated and
no Justification for any ono of theso
claims hnd been obtained. Dr. Bash
ford also said women wero moro liable
to cancer than men. In England and
Wales in 1910 tho death rnto from
cancer was 8BG per 1,000,000 for mon
and 1,070 for women.

NO MORE CHANCES
By WILLIAM H. OSBORNE.
Young Henry t'ouse wiih Just like
other pt'oplt only more so. Deeply
Imbedded In his luituro win a strong
desire constantly to get something
far nothing. He did not gamble, but
h kept a wary eye upon the lottery
mil upon the markets. He hnd anoth
er trait. He wiih a devoted admirer
ot MIbh Sally Mnuuorlng. Hut It was
this admiration that bothered him.
"If 1 c'd only get enough of the Btuff
together," he Bald to himself, Til pop
the quotation Hut hung it, I'm afraid
I never will."
There was one thing thnt young
L'ouso did not understand. That was,
that the great way to make money
anywhere today, Is to nave It. Small
sums never counted with him. Ho
wns invariably casting them upon tho
waters of fortune, ns a tlHhermun
casts a uorm to catch a fish. Hut
Henry's bait always left tho hook, and
lie never got anything In return.
However, It wnB winter, and Honry
was hit pretty hard, and ho spent n
good many evenings at the homo of
Miss Mnuuorlng. He was clerking it,
and he said to himself that ho would
lay aside a llttlo money all ho could
spnro. SI Hopkins was building a llt
tlo mite of a house up on the .llll
building It to let, und Henry hoped
against hope that somehow he could
scrape up his courage and propose to
Miss Sally; and that he could scrape
up enough money by spring at least
to set up with Miss Sally In that lit
tle house. So he shunned tho news
papers nnd nil the literature contain
ing alluring offers In tho shape of
small Investments; nnd shaved the
lottery way back in his mind, nnd
only thought about Miss Sally und tho
Time passed. He nrnnhsed Anally
tho Just and full sum or $50. Fifty
dollars. Think of It Henry Couso
had always mado fair wages; ho was
a good worker; he was a clover lad;
yet never in his life before hnd he
possessed tho sum of $50.
"What I ought to do," Henry's hot
ter Judgment told him, "Is to take
this to Sally nnd let her keep it for
mo. That's Just tho thing to do.
Hut" Well. Henry didn't. And ho
didn't because Instead of thinking
.merely of renting Si's llttlo house, he
took to building cnstles In tho air.
One day n newspaper advertisement
caught his eye. It was headed by the
words "Fifty Dollnrs." It was signed
by A. Agustus Atkinson. Tho adver
tisement wns very frunk and -clear
and plnin. It stated without any
reservation thnt Mr. Atkinson, a largo
stock broker, had inside information
on threo or four of tho active stocks;
that ho know positively what would
happen; that ho had never made mis
takes and that ho had Just made a
small fortune for ono of his clients
who had taken his ndvlce nnd hnd In
vested only $in. Mr. Atkinson stated
clearly that ho would not accept or
ders; that ho wodld merely furnish
information for tho trifling sum of flvo
dollars per weok, and that 1i!b client
or customer must Invest his money
through tho ordinary channels. Ho
stated this, said Mr. Atkinson, to
show his good faith.
Down in tho city Mr. A. Augustus
Atkinson .occupied a part a part only
of a deskroom, in a dingy corner of
a dingy building. Ho wns not a
broker and never hnd been n broker.
Ho know something less about tho
stock mnrket than did Diana of Mad
ison squnro. nut nevertheless ho
mado a living nnd n good one with
tho drinks thrown in.
For Mr. Atkinson had a system; a
suro one for him. Tho wholo thing
wns very slmplo. When his advertise
ment had brought In enough five-dollar
bills to pay for itself, and to make
it worth Mr. Atkinson's -while to go
to work, Mr. Atkinson would sit
down and write two sots of letters.
These letters would relate to a cer
tain stock or commodity, sny X Y.
& 55. Mr. Atkinson would advise his
western customers to buy X., Y. & 7..
and would ndvlso his eastern custom
ers to Boll It. Tho result wns palp
able If thoro was any movement
whatever In X., Y. & Z., Just one-half
of bis customers won, and tho other
half lost. Tho half that won would
naturally tell all their friends about
tho advlco and five-dollar bills would
pour In upon Mr. A. Augustus Atkin
son. Young Couse grubbed away until
ho had saved up $55. Then ho wroto
to Mr. Atkinson and enclosed a five
dollar bill. Ho stood ready with tho
$50 to send it down to a good Arm
ho know of in tho city, Just as soon
as Mr. Atkinson responded.
Usually when ho mado up hlB mind
to it, it did not tnko Mr. Atklr.Bon long
to answer his correspondence. His
ndyice would consist of two or threo
words only: Huy so and so. or, sell
so and so. Rut on a fateful day his
correspondence was heavier than
usual and ho had selected a long
named stock. It was a stock that hnd
been remarkably active In tho last
fow days. Everybory will recall Its
name Tho Universal Confederated
American Metallic Consolidation. This
was known on 'change ns tho "Uca
Mick." Tho long nnmo wearied Mr.
Couso, nnd when ho wns half through
with IiIh list, ho stopped. Ho had ad
Tlsod tho flrst half to sell tho stock.
"Geo," ho said to himself, wearily,
"geo, I'm tired. ,111 go out and strotch
my legs, a bit." Mr. Atkinson's legs
took tonio tlmo to strotch; business
JiiBtlflod it, bo ho thought; nnd they
wero stretched so much that thoy
wero iiomewbnt unsteady when ho
I He picked up the list. Ileiiiy Couse,
Kcq " he said to himself, "('oust', eh
Country name that. Derived probably
from Cows. Henry Couso. Hens unir
i Cows, eh? Not bad, All right Mr.
Coiiho You'd better--ah, let me seoji
which half Is this. Let's see, I mailed
those others. What did 1 tell 'em,
Henry Cause, up In tho Plains
store, wns quite unawnre by what n
slender thread his fate wA hanging
Mr Atkinson's memory usually wae
good, but It hnd been Impaired on this
occasion by tho stretching process.
"The tlrst lot," snld Mr. Atkinson,
"why, I told 'em to buy- that's suro.
Then this half must sell. All right
for you, you can sell, Henry Couso, of
Frankfort l'lnlns "
I The next day Henry Cause received
n plain white envelop with an tin-
1 signed slip Inside of It. TIiIb Is whnt
it said: "Sell Univ. Con. Am. Met.
Con and do It right away."
Mr. Couse sold. Kverybady knows
now uhat happened. lu the Micxt
three days tho battle royal between
the American Iron Concern nnd "Ucn
Mick" took place. lOverybody remem
bers the crisis when "Uca Mick,"
which hnd been 170, disappeared from
sight and reappeared again at 15. It
wan a crash among crashes. Honry
Cause contoniplnted It with dlsconi
flture. "Gee," ho snld to himself, for
he was not nu adept In tho mysteries
of Wall street, "gee, but I'm n blamed
Idiot. Hero I've been dabbling lu U.
C. A. nnd tho wholo bottom has fallen
out of tho blamed thing. Serves mo
right. I'll never do It ngaln."
The next day ho received a check
from his brokers for $5,000 on ac
count. That was not all, they said
there was a llttlo more to come. For
Henry Couso hnd not understood the
Import of n sale us distinguished from
n purchase He had sold at a high
price, and delivered at a low price;
nnd tho difference belonged to him.
Mr Atkinson hnd stretched his legs
that day to como purpose, for. through
his slip of memory, every customer
hnd sold ".Uca Mick" on margin ami
every ono had won. He does a liirgot
business than over, nnd perhnps It 'i
just as well for folks to loso through
him ns In any other way. Mr. Henry
Couso did not go to see Miss Soil
Manncring on the evening thnt ho got
the check. Ho was too much uston
lulled; ho hnd to sit up half tho night
nnd look at tho check steadily for
Tho next morning ha went around,
He wnnted to strike while tho iron
"Sally." ho said, "I've bought S!
Hopkins' house and enme around tc
sees If 1 could put the title in
your name." v
Miss Sally Mannnring thought lit
wns crazy. Hut ho was rntlonnl
enough. For he sat himself at hot
side and put his arm mound her wnist
nnd Anally ho kissed her And that's
no Hjgn of lunacy. Finally lie pulled
a roll of bills from his pocket. "Sal
ly," ho said, "I want you to take theso
and keep them for me for us. I'm
nover, never going to speculate an
more. Never. I'm through. Resides,"
ho ndded, "I own soma real ostnto and
I'm going to mnrry you, and thnt'1
lottory enough for any mnn."
Whereupon Miss Rally boxed hit
ears. And Henry Couso ho Jus!
laughed nnd let her do It.

FRENCH COLONY IS PR0LIFIQ
System of Land Tenure Has Much tc
Do With Gratifying Increase
A German writer, Dr. A. Orotjnhn,
interested In the Increasing shortagu
in births in Franco, hns found a pro
lific community at the village of Mar.
die, near Dunkirk, says nu exchange.
This Is a colony founded moro than
200 years ago by iouls XIV. with a
system of lnnd tonuro which doeij
not permit prlvnte ownership of the)
soil. Doctor Grotjahn says:
"Tho men of Mardlc mnrry, on an
averago, at twenty-four years of ago,
immediately after having passed tho
obligatory servlco In tho navy. When
a now family has thus been founded
It receives for excluslvo use, but not,
ns private property, a plot of land of
22 acres and a section of shore foe
net Ashing. . . . Tho families,
may leave to their children the lnnd
handed to thorn In usufruct, but thoy
may uot divide or inortgago it. Tho
result is that Mardlc possesses a
prosperous population, freoof mntcrlnl
cares, which does not rack Its brain
on bohalf of its children's fate, whllo
tho rest of tho peasants and fisher
men of Franco nro particularly anxi
ous In this respect. Tho births
amounted to 43 per 1,000 ot tho in
habitants, a flguro which la not sup
passed by any civilized people."
