Prom Mrs Rank to Mrs Pirikham
The following- letter to Mrs Pink
ham from Mrs M Rank No 2354
East Susquehanna Ave Philadelphia
Pa is a remarkable statement of re
lief from utter discouragement She
I never can find words with which
to thank you for what L ydia E Pink
ham s Vegetable Compound has- done
for me
Some 3ears ago I had womb trouble
and doctored for a long time not see
ing any improvement At times I
would feel well enough and other
times was miserable So it went on
until last October I felt something
terrible creeping over me I knew not
what but kept getting worse I can
hardly explain my feelings at that
time I was so depressed in spirits
that I did not wish to live although I
had everything to live for Ilad Hys
teria was very nervous could not
sleep and was not safe to be left
Indeed I thought I would lose my
mind- No one knows what 1 endured
1 continued this way until the last
of February when I saw in a paper a
testimonial of a lady whose case was
similar to mine and who had been
cured by Lydia E Pinkhams Vegeta
ble Compound I determined to try it
and felt better after the first dose I
continued taking it and to day am a
well woman and can sav from my
heart 4 Thank God for such a medi

iams Pink Pills for The First Sergeant
Pale People said Mr Davies but nev
er knew their worth until I used them
for the cure of chronic dyspepsia For
two years I suffered and doctored for that
aggravating trouble but could only be
helped temporarily
I think dyspepsia is one of the most
stubborn of ailments and there is scarce
ly a clerk or office man but what is more
or less a victim Some days I could eat
anything while at other times I would
he starving Those distressing pains
would force me to quit work
I tried the hot water treatment thor
oughly but it did not affect my ease I
have tried many advertised remedies but
they would help only for a time A friend
of mine recommended Dr Williams Pink
Pills but I did not think much of them
1 finally was induced to try the pills
and commenced using them After taking
a few doses I found much relief I do not
remember how many boxes of the pills I
used but I used them until the old trou
ble stopped I know they will cure dys
pepsia of the worst form and I am pleas
ed to recommend them

dealers or will be sent iost paid on re

The Emperor of Germany Converses
Fluently iu the Languages
It is a singular fact that Emperor
Wiliiain II who is hated with a ven
omous hatred by every normally con
stituted Briton is nevertheless per
sonally quite fond of the English of
their language and literature of En
glish ways of British sports manners
clothes even of some of the very Brit
ish prejudices The Emperor too
speaks English not only with perfect
fluoncy but without any German ac
cent and he has mastered every nicety
and every peculiarity of the tongue
evtn to American slang Of this latter
proficiency he has given many proofs
In conversation for example with the
American ambassador Mr White as
well as the American attaches Allen
and Niblack in the course of last win
ters entertainments he used many
times in a jocular manner such term
and expressions as getting ones back
up guy fake etc terms rather
forcible than elegant but certainly ex
pressive and thoroughly American
just to show that he knows all abou it
and duly appreciates it as an original
vehicle of expression
It was quite like his own self which
is singularly free from prejudice of
every description that he took up with
characteristic vim the books of Capt
Mahan U S N to which he accorded
much more enthusiastic praise than did
the- English naval men Among tho
volumes given by the Emperor as prize
gifts to talented pupils of the public
schools In Prussia the books of the
American naval officer form a large
Delude Themselves
It is a fact little known but it is the
truth nevertheless that though Eng
land obtained possession of Gibraltar
as far back as 170 1 the Spaniards to
this day contend that they still have
their proprietary interest in that
mighty fortification and are not yet
conquered With this idea ever in their
mind they have appointed since that
date and still appoint with regularity
and persevering conscientiousness n
Spansh governor general of Gibraltar
as often as the office falls vacant Of
course the British governor is the gen
uine governor and the Spanish official
never sets foot in Gibraltar but that
little anomaly does not in the least af
fect the prevailing idea and consequent
action of the Spaniards When about
two years ago the then Spanish gov
ernor of Gibraltar died in Spain he
was buiied with all the pomp befitting
his tank and with due solemnity his
successor was appointed All of which
evidences the density of the dons to
grasp the logic of events and proves
that though they may persevere in
their claims the perseverance is not
much to be dreaded Probably when
they lose Cuba fiction of acaptain
general may obtain in like manner It
will be amusing not dangerous
