Because your case is a difficult one,
-doctors having done you no good,
do not continue to suffer without
giving Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound a trial. It surely has cured
many cases of female ills, such as in
flammation, ulceration, displacements,
fibroid tumors, irregularities, periodic
pains, backache, that bearing-down
feeling, indigestion, dizziness, and ner
vous prostration. It costs but a trifle
to try it, and the result is worth mii
lions to many suffering women.

MARVELOUS PSYCHIC POWER
DISPLAYED BY MECHANIC.
Feats of Fred E. Foskett Are Inves.
tigated by Prof. William James
of Harvard and Others and
Boston. The marvelous psychic
power of Fred E. Foskett, a young ma
chinist of Orange, Mass., has attract
ed the attention of Prof. James of Har
vard and other leading members oi
the Boston branch of the American
Society of Psychical Research, whc
have given him tests.
The first of the tests was held at the
home of Prescott F. Hall. Pror. Wil
liam James and several well-known
physicians were there, and test con
ditions as nearly perfect as possible
were made. Foskett was seated in
the center of a room before a small
table. There he performed every feat
of the Hindoo fakir and the Buddhist
On the table was an ordinary kero
sene lamp with a chimney and a flat
'wick, a pan and several quarts of al
cohol. According to the reports of
those present, Foskett succeeded in
every test. ' ,
Before beginning the test Foskett
took from 2u to 30 deep breaths.
The first test was made with ordi
nary sulphur matches. Foskett lighted
half a dozen, one after the other, hold
ing them with one hand so close to the
fingers of the other that the flames'
curled around them. He then lighted
the lamp and held his hand:) above the
wick, while the names curled ovei
them and the soot completely black
From one of these tests to another
Foskett went, while the scientists held
their breath- and watched every motion
until he came to the climax. In this
he poured a quart of alcohol into his
basin, lighted it and then washed his,
hands, bathing them for nearly ten
minutes in the -burning fluid, washing
It up over his arms and to his face ,
literally bathing himself in blazing
alcohol. That completed the test
As soon as it was. finished the phy
sicians present examined Foskett, and
they could not find the slightest trace
of a burn or blister. Foskett told
them that the, flames did not give him
the slightest sensation of burning; that
he felt comfortably warm and pleas
ant, and nothing more.
The second tests were made the
next afternoon at the home of Prof.
James in Cambridge, and under the
same conditions as the day before.
Considerable mystery Is thrown about
them. Mr. Hall said they were so;
startling that he did not care to diss
cuss them until they had been tried
again. Another scientist who was
there said that Foskett performed alt
of his experiments of the day before,
and then "absolutely and positively de
materialized." "He seemed to dissolve Into thin
air as we watched him. Was gone 41
seconds And then materialized. It
was so startling that we, I am afraid,
lost sight of the test conditions, and
we have asked him to appear before
us again. It seems unbelievable, but
it certainly seemed so. We hardly
know what to think about it."
Prof. James refuses to talk about
According to those who were pres
ent, Foskett seems in a passive state
during the tests, and he says he thinks
of nothing in particular. Those who
examined him discredit the hypnotic
theory. They believe he has some la
tent psychic force that never has been
It Is Intimated that the secret lies
in taking the deep rhythmic breaths,
which, it is declared, is the foundation
of the development of the power
taught in India and the orient cen
turies ago. By certain methods of
breathing, it is taught by the ancients
that in solitude and fasting the pow
er of handling fire, receiving messages
from astral bodies and other phenom
ena can be accomplished.
Prescott F. Hall, o fthe American
Society of Physical Research, said he
was soon to prepare a report for a
scientific publication. "Foskett's pow
er," said Mr. Prescott, "is not hyp
notic and it is a power well known in
the orient, where fire handling Is done
extensively. . It used to be a test to
see whether a aian was guilty or oth
erwise of a misdemeanor; if he took
the fire test and was not burned, he
was considered innocent; if he was
burned he had to suffer the punish'

WESTERN CANADA'S 1908 CROP
WILL GIVE TO THE FARMERS OF
WEST A SPLENDID RETURN.
The following interesting bit of in
formation ' appeared in a Montreal
"Last December, in reviewing the
ear 1907, we had to record a wheat
harvest considerably smaller in vol
ume than in the previous year. Against
ninety millions in J.906 the wheat crop
of the West in 1907 only totaled some
Seventy-one million bushels, and much
of this of inferior quality. But the
price averaged high, and the total re
sult to the farmers was not unprofit
able. This year we have to record by
far the largest wheat crop in the coun-'
try's history. Estimates vary as to
the exact figure, but it is certainly not
less than one hundred million bushels,
and in all probability it reaches one
hundred and ten million bushels. The
quality,' moreover, is good, and the
price obtained very high, so that in
all respects the Western harvest of
190S has been a -memorable one. The
result upon the commerce and finance
of the country is already apparent
The railways are again reporting in
creases in traffic, the general trade of
the community has become active
after twelve months' quiet, and the
banks are loosening their purse strings
to meet the demand for money. The
prospects for 1909 are excellent. The
credit of the country never stood as
high. The immigrants of 1907 and 1908
have now been absorbed into the in
dustrial and agricultural community,
and wise regulations are in force to
prevent too great an influx next year.
Large tracts of new country will be
opened up by the Grand Trunk Pacific
both in Kast and "West. If the seasons
are favorable the Western wheat crop
should reach one hundred and twenty
million bushels. The prospects for
next year seem very fair." An inter
esting letter is received from Cardston,
Alberta (Western Canada), written to
an agent of the Canadian Government,
any of whom will be pleased to advise
correspondents of the low rates that
may be allowed intending settlers.
"Cardston, December 21st, 1908.
Dear Sir: Now that my threshing
Is done, and the question 'What Will
the Harvest Be,' has become a cer
tainty, I wish to report to you the re
sults thereof, believing it will be of in
terest to you. You know I am only
a novice in the agricultural line, and
do not wish you to think I am boasting
because of my success, for some of my
neighbors have done much better than
I have, and I expect to do much bet
ter next year myself. My winter wheat
went 53 bushels per acre and graded
No. 1. My spring wheat went : 48
bushels per acre, and graded No. 1,
My oats went 97 bushels per acre, and
are fine as any oats I ever saw. My
stock is all nice- and fat, and are out
in 'the field picking their own three
square meals a day. . The weather is
nice and warm no snow and very
