used the liquor as a rub.

have suffered, they describe their
Bymptoms and Btate how they were
finally made well.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound is a medicine made from
medicinal roots and herbs, and without
drugs, to relieve the sickness women
bo often have, which is indicated by
backache, weak feelings, nervousness,
and no ambition to get anything done
or to go anywhere. It nas helped
many women. Why not try it?

Prayer Each Day
His faith Is counted tor righteousness.
Almighty Father, Shepherd and
Bishop of our souls, lift upon us the
Light of Thy countenance. We
thank Thee that it is possible for us
to approach the unveiled mercy seat.
We come not in our own name, nor
do we plead any merit in ourselves.
Our hope is in Christ, Thy beloved
Son, crucified for us. He bore our
sins in His own body on the tree,
and by His stripes we are healed.
Let Thy benediction rest upon this
family circle. Help us to keep the
fire of gratitude and devotion burn
ing on Thine altar. Give us grace
to overcome evil in the day of temp
tation. Give us courage in the hour
of adversity, and humility in prosper
ity. Help us to live as in Thy sight;
doing Thy will with alacrity and
cheerfulness. Give wisdom and in
tegrity of purpose, we pray Thee, to
all those in authoriey over us, that
in the administration of public af
fairs they may "do justly, and love
mercy." We invoke Thy special
blessing upon the household under
this roof, that we may not disap
point Thy gracious will concerning
us. Bestow Thy heavenly grace
upon father, mother and children, so
that we may be worthy to have a
place in the Great Family of God,
which shall, by and by, enter upon
their eternal inheritance. Thanks to
Thee for victory through our Lord
Jesus Christ. Amen, and Amen.
