Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound, made from native roots and
herbs, contains no narcotics or harm
ful drugs, and to-day holds the record
for the largest number of actual cures
of female diseases of any similar medi
cine in the country, and thousands of
voluntary testimonials are on tile in
the Pinkham laboratory at Lynn,
Mass., from women who have been
cured from almost every form of
female complaints, inflammation, ul
ceration.displacements, fibroid tumors,
irregularities, periodic pains, backache,
Indigestion and nervous prostration.
Every such suffering woman owes it to
herself to give Lydia K. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound a trial.

Financial Los Through Tuberculosis.
Eased on the census of 1900, it is
estimated by the National Association
tor the Study and Prevention of Tu
berculosis that nearly 100,000 children
now in school will die of tuberculosis
before they are 18 years of age, or
that about 6,400 die annually from
this disease. Estimating that on an
average each child who dies of tuber
culosis has had six years of schooling,
the aggregate loss to the country in
wasted education each year amounts
to Jl, 152,000. According to Investiga
tions made In New York, Boston and
Stockholm, the percentage of children
who are afflicted with tuberculosis Is
much larger than the death rate would
Sunday School's Want Ad.
There is a church in Brooklyn that
has adopted a novel scheme for en
larging its Sunday school. ' It adver
tises for boys and girls to come to it.
In the shop windows In the neighbor
hood of the church one may see pla
cards, such as are used for adverti
sing entertainments of various kinds,
that bear the legend:
"Wanted Boys and girls to Join our
Sunday school." Below this are set
forth the advantages that will come
to the young folk who attend fttf

Ticket Speculators Victorious.
The ticket speculators in front of
the theaters In Berlin, against whom
the directors have made war, will re
main active In their business. The au
thorities have decided that the specu
lators cannot be driven away from
their haunts, but that they must not
block traffic. - The manager agreed to
keep in reserve a certain number of
tickets for every performance for
those people who came late, and, inas-
, much as the police caunot break up
(he business, they intend to petition
for a law making the vending of tick
ets on the sidewalks a misdemeanor.
Superstition of Chinese.
The Chinese are a superstitious Deo
pie, and think It a bounden duty to
keep the body Intact, and If by any
misfortune they are compelled to lose
a limb by amputation they invariably
ask for the severe member and keep
it in a box. Sometimes they will actu
ally eat it. thinking it only right that
that which has been taken from the
body should be returned to it. On this
same principle an extracted tooth will
be carefully preserved or ground to
powdei and swallowed in water.
Eggs Stuffed and Fried.
With a small tin tube or a sharp
knife cut a cylindrical piece of white
from the pointed ends of hard-boiled
eggs, then with a small after-dinner
coffee SDOon remove thn vnlba ii,x
these through a sieve, add half the
amount or cooked giblets, chicken, veal

Cleveland, O. Work Is being rushed !
on the new skyscraper office building
being erected at Saint Clair avenuo
and Ontario street by the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers. The build
ing will be completed about May 1.
The Brotherhood of Engineers decided
on the building venture as an invest
ment for surplus capital on hand.
When completed the skyscraper will
represent an investment of about $1,
250,000. Work was begun last' March.
An auditorium with a seating capac
ity of 1,400 will be a feature of the
building. A $10,000 pipe organ, which
will be available for concerts and re
citals, will be installed. The Brother
hood of Locomotive Engineers will oc
cupy all of the eleventh floor.
Butte, Mont. Unless there are un
foreseen developments, all the mines in
the Butte district will close as a
result of a jurisdictional labor dis
pute. A comittee representing the
International Engineers' union waited
on the superintendent of the Amalga
mated Copper Mining Company and
announced that the jurisdiction of the
union must be recognized. The com
mittee also claimed jurisdiction over
the pump men, compressor men, fire
men and oilers. Officers of the min
ers' union said that the Western
Federation of Miners would furnish
enough engineers to operate the mines,
and thus a long shut down may be
Boston. The work for the raising of
the fund for a memorial monument on
the grave of the late Frank B. Mon
aghan at Forest Hills cemetery has
been started by the executive board
of the Massachusetts state conference
of steam engineers' union. The fund
will be the tribute of the engineers of
the country, and no other persons or
organizations will be asked or allowed
to contribute. Mr. Monaghan was an
ex-international president, for years a
national councilor, and at the time of
his death last summer was the editor
of the international union journal.
St. Louis. Following a conference
in this city with James Elliott, presi
dent of the Southwestern Coal Opera
tives association, Thomas L. Lewis,
president of the United Mine Workers
of America, departed for Indianapolis.
Before leaving the city Lewis said
that 15 questions of minor importance
relating to the affairs of the miners in
the southwest had been taken up, but
that no decision had been reached.
Wage agreements were not discussed.
Boston. March 1 the 65-cents-an-
hour rate will go into effect for the
members of Boston Operative Plaster
ers' union ' 10. The men struck
last Bummer for an increase from, 60
to 65 cents an hour. A compromise
was made by which the men then re
ceived 62 cents an hour and the 65-
cents-an-hour rate was to go Into ef
fect March 1 of this year. The union
will enforce the agreement if neces
sary, it is stated.
Topeka, Kan. The work of organi
zation is being carried on steadily in
Kansas. New unions have been
formed within the last two months
as follows: In Emporia, a typograph
ical union; in Atchison, a machinists'
union; in Horten, a telephone opera
tors' union; in Kansas City, Kan., a
plumbers' union, and in Pittsburg, a
printing pressmen's union.
Boston. Boston building laborers'
district council has decided that its
wage request this year will be for five
cents au hour, which, if secured, will
make the new rate 35 cents an hour.
The members of the six unions of
Boston, Cambridge and Brookline will
have a mass meeting Sunday, Febru
ary 27, to take final action on the

Washington. Six countries already
have agreed to send representatives
to the International congress on child
welfare in this city in May.
Indianapolis, Ind. Of the 600,000
coal miners in North America, only
260,000 are within the United Mine
New Bedford, Mass. There are 27,-
700 cotton mill operatives here and
about the same number in Fall River
Chicago. In death benefits the car
penters paid out $221,742.56 last year.
Augusta, Me. General organizing
work will be undertaken in an en
deavor to absolutely organize machin
ists in New England states before May
1, when, according to the present pro
gram, a demand for the eight-hour
work day and substantial wage in
creases will be made at every point.
Wheeling, W. Va. The 250 girls em
ployed In stripping tobacco in the
Pollack 'stogie factories, who have
been out on a strike for two weeks
have won a victory. The management
discharged the weigher and the girls
protested. The management reinstat
ed the weigher.
Chicago. The possibility of a strike
of 4,000 switchmen employed in the
Chicago switching district of 18 rail
roads was believed to have been avert
ed when the parties at dispute agreed
to submit the question to the Illi
nois state board of arbitration. The
switchmen who are members of the
Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, de
manded an increase in -wages of five
cents an hour and time and a half
for overtime. Both sides signed an
agreement to arbitrate. The men voted
for a strike, but F. O. Melchor, vice
president of the Rock Island and
chairman of the General Passengers
committee, said no strike was now
possible. The application for arbitra
tion was filed at Springfield, 111.
Wilkesbarre, Pa. There is con
sternation among the anthracite min
ers in this region, over a decision of
the Luzerne county mining board to
recall all - certificates issued to the
many thousands of miners in this
county and to examine every man as
to his fitness to hold a certificate.
Under a Pennsylvania law , a man
must have two years' experience in
hard coal mining before he can ob
tain a certificate to work as a miner.
The decision of the board is due to
the finding of large numbers of fraud
ulent certificates throughout the coun
ty, the inexperienced men endanger
ing the safety of mine workers and
New York. Between 5,000 and 6,000
structural iron workers employed by
the members of the Iron League Erec
tors association have received an in
crease in wages of 30 cents a day,
dating from the beginning of this
mouth, and on July 1 another advance
of 20 cents a day will go into effect,
which will bring up the wages to five
dollars a day, the highest structural
iron workers have yet received. The
wage increase was voluntarily granted
by the employers.
Boston. John C. Dyche of New
York, general secretary of the Ladies'
Garment Workers' union, has sent
word that the entire energies of the
international will be concentrated in
securing a complete victory for the
Boston Ladies' Tailors' and Dress
makers' union in its prolonged battle
against several local open shop firms.
The work of organizing the Boston

South Bethlehem, Pa. A point for
the Bethlehem Steel Company in the
strike controversy was the decision
of the 500 steel molders not to strike.
To keep the molders at work the com
pany granted them part of their de
mands. Jacob Tazzlier of Washing
ton, representative of Samuel Goinp-
ers, arrived and took charge of the
fight for the men. The agitators say
they propose to get out the entire
10,000 employes of the plant.
Boston. John B. Lennon, who will
retire next July, has been at the head
of the International Journeymen
Tailors for nearly a quarter of a cen
tury, and for almost as long a time
has been a prominent figure in inter
national labor circles. As treasurer
of the American Federation of 'Labor
and a member of the executive coun
cil 'of the American Federation of La
bor Mr. Lennon has always been in
Washington. A popular error in re
gard to the number of industries in
which women were employed during
the first quarter of the last century
limits their occupation to five or six
the mills, shoemaking, cigar mak
ing, sewing, the manufacture of cloth
ing, and printing. Actually statistics
from the industrial reports of that
period show that over one hundred
occupations were open to women.
New York. The executive body of
t!-e Barbers' International union has
given notice that hereafter no dele
gate to the international body will be
seated if he does not wear clothing
bearing the union label.
London, Eng. The Great Northern

of New York's chilld labor law last
year, and fewer children were em
ployed. Washington. There were about
twenty national or international unions
in the United States in 1881; in 1907
there were upward of 125.
Newport, Eng. The Labor party
convention voted down a resolution to
change the title under which the par
ty's candidates should stand for par
liament from Labor to Labor and So
cialist by a vote of 1,492 to 44. A

laws- to enfranchise women and pay
members of parliament.
Boston. Just 470 clerks employed
in the general offices of the B. & M.

NEVER TASTED FLESH
Philadelphia Girl Vegetarian AH
Miss Ora Kress Is Not Interested In
the Boycott on the Meat Trust
She Bars Feathers on
Philadelphia, Pa. There is one
young woman in this city who is not
at all concerned about the outcome
of the anti-meat crusade, or the beef
trust investigation, and that is Miss
Ora Kress, a junior at the Woman's
Medical college. Miss Kress is a vege'
tarian, not one who adopts it as a
fad, but one who has never tasted
.meat from the time of her birth, 22
Her father. Dr. D. H. Kress, super-;

disposition, she is the favorite of

jbut she resisted the temptation.
' "Do you know, it often strikes me
so funny," said Miss Kress, with a
laugh, "to see people gorging the
carcass of some dead animal or fowl

"Do you believe in vegetarianism be
cause it is healthful or because it is
humane?" she was asked.
"Both," she answered.
"Do you wear plumes or feathers?"
"Oh, no; that would be inconsist

so constructed as to be able to digest
meat and fat?" she was questioned.
"Fat, not meat," was the answer.
"Butter is fat, too. Then, it must be

"The ancient Greeks, who attained
the highest point in the development

Improved Cutting Blowpipe.
The cutting blowpipe, of which so
many surprising things have been re-;
ported, has recently been improved in
(France in a way to render it more
generally useful. Two inflammable
gases must be employed. One is re-,
'quired to keep the metal at a high
'temperature. The other is oxygen to.
concentrate action by oxidation along
the line of the cut. For heating, either
oal gas, acetylene or hydrogen is
employed, but as there is sometimes'
difficulty in procuring a supply of
those gases, the new blowpipe- is ar
ranged to use instead of the ordinary
gasoline employed by motorists. ,
