Cure Forjhe Blues
ONE MEDICINE THAT HAS NEVER FAILED
Health Fully Restored and the Joy of
When achccrful, brave, lig-ht-hearted
woman is suddenly plunged into that
perfection of misery, the BLUES, it is
a sad picture. It is usually this way :
She has been feeling' "out of sorts"
for some time ; head has ached and
back also ; has slept poorly, been quite
nervous, and nearly fainted once or
twice ; head dizzy, and heart beats very
fast; then that bearing-down feeling;
and during her periods she is exceed
ingly despondent. Nothing pleases
her. Tier doctor says : ' Cheer up : you
have dyspepsia ; you will be all right
But she doesn't get " all right," and
hope vanishes; then come the brood

Don't wait until your sufferings have

Mrs. Rosa Adams, of 819 12th Street,
Louisville, Ky., niece of the late Gen
eral Roger Iiunson, C.S.A. She writes:
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:
" I cannot tell you with pen and ink what
Lydia E. Pinkhain's Vegetable Compound
has done for me. I suffered with female
troubles, extreme lassitude, 'the blues,'
nervousness and that nll-eone feeling. I was
advised to try Lydia E. I'iukham's Vegetable
Compound, and it not only cured my femnle
derangement, but it has restored me to perfect
health and strength. The buoyancy of my
younger days has returned, and I do not suf
fer any longer with despondency, as I did be
fore. "I consider Lydia K. Pinkham's Vege

THE BEST CSUGH CURE
When offered something else
stop and consider: "Am I sure
to get something as good as this

If not cure, what good reason
is there for for taking chances in a
matter that may have a direct
bearing on my own or my family's
health?" . v.

WRONG IN REVENGE
PARDON IS THE ONE GREAT EN
Surely Two Wrongs Never Yet Have
Made a Right Truth in Lesson
Taught by Wisdom and
So many crimes are committed in
the name of vengeance that it gives
one pause and turns one back to the
meaning that lies beneath the word.
Once, evidently, men killed at need,
and snatched at greed, and each
man's idea of personal enlargement
was to be a formidable power, holding
out threatened injury and death to
all who encroached. Civilization is
a slow but sure progress toward the
idea that all enlargement is by sym
pathy and service, by tolerance and
To return a wrong by another
wrong has never by any mathematical
computation made other than two
wrongs in the world; they have never
produced a right any more than ten
persimmons can produce an apple. To
imagine that a man can enrich him-;
self by robbery is sheer inteliectua
stultification. Whatever a man takes
from another to the other's loss and
detriment becomes the impoverish
ment of the robber, paradoxical as it
may sound, and another's suffering
can never be our gain. We have
but to look at the spiritual pauperism
of the unrighteously rich to know
The whole lesson of revenge was
taught of old. There came to live
and to teach in the world Wisdom
and Love incarnate, and men, see
ing the power and the beauty, and
desiring all power and all beauty in
their own hands, said: "Let us tor
ture and kill," and this they did.
And Wisdom and Love incarnate
spoke and said: "They know not what
they do," and passed on. The re
venge is that since then Wisdom and
Love supreme are without bodily
form in the world, and men who- de
sire it go searching, and lose them
selves in mists and thicket and
swamps, they stumble and fall and
rise again, and hope and despair, and
cry out, but "for no yearning, and no
prayers, and no stretching out of
arms through the centuries does the
visible form become alive again.
This is the great revenge, to hide
in the shelter of the silence and the
mystery; acts entail further acts,
and we become drawn into the mesh
of human intricacies and partialities.
But in the far quiet there is peace
for the slain while the slayer wraps
about him the gray isolation of his
acts, and out of his errors come the
sufferings which are the birth throes
of new consciousness.
This is the wisdom of ages that
there is no big and no little, and
betrayal and fulfillment of destiny are
one and the same; men do what is in
them to do; they act according to the
ideas that have already shaped the
brute world. Hut in the future, the
least and the lowest of men will
know that there is but one revenge,
and that is pardon. Harper's Weekly.
The Fountain of Youth.
"The fountain of youth, I am per
suaded," said Mr. Cheerily, "springs in
our own bosoms only. The mistake
we make in searching for it, as we all
do, is in looking for it elsewhere.
"Here it is, as one might say, right
under our noses, but that fact we
never realize; and we all go search
ing for it, near and far, as Ponce de
Leon did centuries ago in Florida.
"Here's the trouble, the real trouble.
The fountain within ourselves, if we
don't watch out, is likely to get sealed
up; and it is when it ceases thus to
flow that we begin to look for it else
where, always more and more aimless
ly, and always with increasing weari
ness, for it is worry that prompts us
on this vain search and that leads us
always farther and farther away.
"That's the secret of the whole busi
ness freedom from worry; it is,
worry, and worry only, that seals the
true fountain and starts us on that
"Don't worry, and you will never
have to search for it; you will discover
it, springing perpetual, within your
own heart the true and only foun
tain." Theories as to Earthquakes.
The director of the solar observa
tory at Kensington in England an
nounces that at the time of the San
Francisco and Valparaiso earthquakes
and those which occurred in 1894 the
spots on the sun were at the niaxi
mum of their size. It is not known
that the sun spots and the earth
quakes have any relation, but their si
multaneous appearance has been ob
served often. There is another the
ory of the western earthquake, how
ever, which is more simple and prob
able. It is that the mountains on the
western shore of the continent are
slowly but constantly being forced up
ward. Occasionally the upturning
strata of rock slip and the result is
destruction to the pities within the
area of disturbance. This theory fits
well with the earthquakes on the Pa
Some remarkable coincidences are
recorded in the case of two men, Wil
liam Connolly and Patrick Cantwell,
who were drowned a short time ago
by the upsetting of a "float" on the
Grand canal, near Tullamore, Ireland.
The two men were born on the samo
day 3C years ago; they were baptized
in the same water; " they were
drowned together in the Grand canal,
and they have now been buried to
gether at Rahan, King's county.

of Suffolk, Va., says: "During two

I used to suffer the
most acute agony
during a gravel attack, and had the
other usual symptoms of kidney trou

pain, etc. I have a box containing 14
gravel stones that I passed, but that

Aunt Mary's "Quiet" Funeral.
A dear old New England spinster,
the embodiment of the timid and
shrinking, passed ' away at Carlsbad,
where she had gone for her health.
Her nearest kinsman, a nephew, or
dered the bedy sent back to be buried
as was her last wish in the quiet
little country churchyard. ' His sur-

the placid features of his Aunt Mary,
j the majestic port of an English gen
eral in mil regimentals, wnom ne re
membered had chanced to die at the
same time and place a3 his aunt. At
once he cabled to the general's heirs,
explaining the situation and requesting
instructions. They came back as
follows: "Give the general quiet fu

Attire of Mendicant Surprised Vis
itors in London.
Tho visitors from the country turn
ing from a London railway terminus
into the street on Saturday stopped to
gaze aghast at a man standing in the
gutter. "Look," said one, nudging the
other, "even, the b- ..gars wear 'top
pers' in London!" It was true in this
case, at any rate.
Here was a man of about five and
thirty, di-essed like a ity clerk, in a
good morning coat and trousers, sound
boots, clean starched shirt and collar
and a well fixed tie. He was crowned
with a silk hat, well, brushed and
ironed. But there he was in the con
ventional attitude of the curb-itona
merchant, one foot on the pavement,
the other in the gutter. One hand
held out for sale half a dozen boxes of
matches, the other invited alms.
A man keeps a nice little place in
the country from the profits of his
pitch on the pavement in the Strand,
but his workadny clothes would not
fetch as much as this man's hat cost

staining and varnishing in one opera

them with beer or vinegar makes good

Starch were used. In order to get the
desired stiffness, it is -usually neces
sary to use so much starch that the
beauty and fineness of the fabric is
hidden behind a paste of varying
thickness, which not enly destroys the
appearance, but also affects the wear
ing quality of the goods. This trouble
can be entirely overcome by using De
fiance Starch, as it can be applied
much more thinly because of its crat

There are two classes of remedies; those of known qnal
ity and which are permanently beneficial in effect, acting
gently, in harmony with nature, when nature needs assist
ance; and another class, composed of preparations of
unknown, uncertain and inferior character, acting1 tempo
rarily, but injuriously, as a result of forcing1 the natural
functions unnecessarily. One of the most exceptional of
the remedies of known quality and excellence ia the ever
pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California
lig: Syrup Co., which represents the active principles of
plants, known to act most beneficially, in a pleasant syrup,
in which the wholesome Califcrnian blue figs are nsed to con
tribute their rich, yet delicate, fruity flavor. It is the remedy
of all remedies to sweeten and refresh, and cleanse the system
gently and naturally, and to assist one in overcoming consti
pation and the many ills resulting therefrom. Its active princi
ples and quality are known to physicians generally, and the
remedy has therefore met with their approval, as well as with
the favor of many millions of well informed persons who know
of their own personal knowledge and from actual experience
that it is a most excellent laxative remedy. We do not claim that
it will cure all manner of ills, hut recommend it for what it really
represents, a laxative remedy of know quality and excellence.
containing nothing of an objectionable or injurious character
There are two classes of purchasers; those who are. informed v
as to tie quality of what they buy and the reasons for the excellence
of articles of exceptional merit, and who do not lack courage to go
elsewhere when a dealer offers an imitation of anv well known
article; hut, unfortunately, there are some people who do not know,
and who allow themselves to be imposed upon. They cannot expect
its beneficial effects if they do not get the genuine remedy.
To the credit of the druggists of the United States be it said
that nearly all of them value their reputation for professional
integrity and the good will of their customers too highly to offer
imitations of the
manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co., and in order to
buy the genuine article and to get its beneficial effects, one has
only to note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company
