Every mother possesses information of vital value to her
young daughter. That daughter is a precious legacy , and
the responsibility for her future is largely in the hands of the
mother. The mysterious change that develops the thought-
lees girl into the thoughtful woman should find the mother
on the watch day and night. As pho cares for the physical
well-being of her daughter , so will the woman be , and her
"When the young girl's thoughts become sluggish , when
she experiences headaches , dizziness , faintness , and exhibits
an abnormal disposition to deep , pains in the back and lower
limbs , eyes dim , desire for solitude , and a dislike for the
society of other girls , when she is a mj'stery to herself and
friends , then the mother should go to her aid promptly. At
such a time the greatest aid to nature is Lydia E. Pink-
Iiam's Vegetable Compound. It prepares the young
system for the coming change , and is the surest reliance in
this hour of trial.
The following letters from Miss Good are practical proof
of Mrs. Pinkham's efficient advice to young women.

"DEATi Mus. PINKHAM : I hare been very much bothered for some
time with my monthly periods being1 irregular , I will tell yon nil about
it , and put myself in your care , for I have heard so much of you. Ench
month menstruation would become less and lesii , xintil it entirely stopped
for six months , and now it has stopped again. I hare become very nervous -
vous and of a very bad color. I am a young girl and have always had to

"DitAuMns. PINKIIAM : I cannot pr.-iise Lydia
E. Pinhhatn's Vegetable Compound enough. It is
just simply wonderful the change your medicine
has made in inc. I feel like another person. My
work is now iv pleasure to me , while before using
3'onr medicine it was a burden. To-day I am a
healthy and happy girl. I think if more women
would use your Vegetable Compound there would be

WASHINGTON , Sept. 15. There
were no developments In the Chinese
negotiation ) ] today with which the pub
lic could bo made acquainted , the whole
matter being still in the diplomatic
phase and therefore not calling for
ilitary orders. War department ofil-
iiUa are awaiting word from the State
department as to the next stop ex
pected from the troops , but it in now
intimated that this next step will not
be taken Immediately.
The situation has lost pomothlug of
its acutoncsa , owing to the change In
the attitude of the Russian govern
ment , as indicated in yesterday's dis
patches. No official confirmation has
reached Washington o the postpone
ment of the wiihdiawal , but the fact
is not doubted here. Regardless , how
ever , of the course to bo taken by Rus
sia , it is noted there is nothing in the
American note of response to Russia
that demands immediate evacuation
in the event that the Russian troops
are called away. Instead , It is stated
that the control of the situation would
simply pass from the State depart
ment into General Chalice's hands and
it would be for him , after conferring
with the other military commanders ,
to determine when and how and lo
what extent the American forces should
bo withdrawn. He might choose his
own time and In a degree Ills position
would be similar to that occupied by
him In the advance upon Peldn , so far
as having a free hand 1 ° concerned.
The statement of the condition gov
erning the American reply to the with
drawal proposal may be of signifi
cance , In view , of the fact that it is
made with the express purpose of
clearing away an erroneous Impression
that has been made upon the public

HOUSTON , Tex. , Sept. IE. The Post
today prints a list of 2,701 names ot
the Galveston dead , compiled from va
rious sources , but believed to be au
thentic. There were hundreds of bodies
ies burned , burlc'l at sea and in the
sand , of which no identification was
possible. There were other hundreds
who were burled on the beach of the
mainland , few of whom have been
identified. There are many bodies
still in the ruins of Galveston and
scattered along the beach of the main
land and in the marshes , where they
wore thrown by I ho water , yr.mo of
these bodies have been scut twenty
miles Inland along small watercourses
by the rush of high waters. Taking
all things Into consideration , there
seems no longer any doubt that the
number of dead will reach beyond the
estimates of 5,000 which has been made
by Mayor Jones , Major P. O. Lowe
and other reliable citizens of Galvcs-
About 1,300 refugees arrived here
from Galveston last night and arc be
ing cared for as well as possible. Four
buildings have beun set apart for the
benefit of refugees , hut of the n,100 who
have reached hero so far not moro
than 800 remain in the public charge ,
the remainder of them having gone
to the homes of relatives and friends.
The owner of the steamer Lawrence
has ordered the boat turned over to
Adjutant Scurry , who is in charge at
Galveston , and the transportation of
people from Galveston to the interior
will proceed faster. There have been
delays In the transportation of provis
ions because of a lack of boats , but
there are more boats now and the work
will be faster and moro complete.
