Wearying , ceaseless backache.
Dull , exhausting and constant pain.
i No comfort by day. No rest at night.
Aches in the small of the back , pain low
down in the side. No spirit for any taslc , no
hope for relief. Great numbers of women are
not free from backache from one year's end
Among Mrs. Pinkham's victories
there is none more complete than
that over backache , and the evi
dence of thousands of
women prove that she
is its conqueror.
Mrs. C. Klenk , of Wells ,
Minn. ( Box 151) , writes :
DEAR MRS. PINKHAM I
suffered for years- with a
long list of troubles , and I
want to thank you for my
complete recovery. Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound is a wonderful
medicine for women.
4I had severe female
complaints , causing terrible
backache and nervous pros
tration ; was dizzy most o >
the time , had headache and
such a tired feeling. I now
have taken seven bottles of
your Compound and have
also used the Sanative Wash
and feel like a new woman.
I must say I never had any
thing help me so much. I
have better health than I
ever had in my life. I sleep
well at night , and can work
all clay without feeling tired.
I give Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound all
the credit , for I know it

troubles. I would not do

DEAR MRS. PINKHAM
Two years ago I was
troubled with constant
backache and headache ,
and was very nervous.
i resolved to try your medicine and took two bottles ' R ( /

taking the third a tumor was expelled. I was a
little frightened and sent for the doctor ; and he said that it
was fortunate for me that it came away. I got quite well
after that and have your Compound alone to thank for my
The safe way to guard against trouble is
to get Mrs. Pinkham's advice when the back
ache first appears. A letter to her at Lynn ,
Mass. , describing your case fully will receive
a prompt reply without charge.
DEAR MRS. PINKHAM I wish to tell you the great good
your medicine has done me. I do not feel like the same
woman. I hare suffered terribly. Had womb and kindey
trouble , leucorrhcea , very severe pains in hips and sides
of abdomen , headache , was nervous , menses were irregular. (
I have now taken four bottles of your Vegetable Compound ,
and the backache has left me , menses are regular , can sleep a
well , and awake in the morning feeling much rested. Your
medicine is indeed a friend to women. I wish that I could
tell every woman what a wonderful medicine it ; s. I cannot
praise it enough , " firs. Anna J. Fenstermaker Pine

OPPOSED THE STAGE-COACH.
An Ancient Economist Who
It Would Ruin the Country.
The New York Telegram notes that
the lirst stage coach seen in England
was about the year 1533 , and another
120 years passed before stage coaches
began to run ; they were not received
with much favor. In 1G73 a treatise
was published in London by "A. Lover
of His Country , and Well Wisher to
the Prosperity Both of the King and
Kingdoms , " in which were used many
elaborate arguments and violent ti
rades against them.
"These coaches and caravans , " said
the writer , "are one of the greatest mis
chiefs that hath happened of late years
to the kingdom , mischievous to the pub
lic , destructive to trade and prejudicial
to lauds. "
lie laments the decay of good horse
manship , which would follow if every
body rode to London in a coach. He
calculates that a coach from York ,
Chester or Exeter would have forty
horses on the journey to the capital
and carry eighteen passengers a week.
In the whole year it would carry about
1,872. Suppose there were returning
passengers there Avould be 93G , and for
these forty horses would be sufficient ;
but if people traveled in the good , old-
fashioned way , then at least 500 horses
would be required for the work. The
use of so many horses would give em
ployment to many who were by the
stage coach thrown out of work , such
as cloth workers , drapers , tailors , sad
dlers , tanners , curriers , shoemakers ,
spurriers , lorimers and fellmakers. The
inns would also suffer , for the stage
coach stops only at a few , but when
gentlemen traveled on horseback , ac
companied , as they usually were , by
two or three servants , they stopped at
any and a.s often as they liked , and
thus encouraged trade.
Farmers will be ruined , lie says , by
the stage coach ; for how can they dis
pose of their buy , straw and horse
corn ? Moreover , the influence on
health would be bad ; men called out
of their beds before daylight , hurried
from place to place until far on into
the night , in the summer stilled with
heat and choked with dust , in the win
ter starving and freezing with cold or
choked with liltliy fog , obliged to ride
all day with strangurs and with sick ,
ancient and diseased persons and with
children crying , poisoned with fetid
breaths and crippled by the crowd of
boxes and bundles. Besides all these
troubles there were accidents arising
from the rotten coaches and foul roads.
In short , the writer is fully convinced
that if stage-coach traveling becomes
popular the country will go to ruin.
Had he lived to see the railway he
would have been bereft of his senses.

W. H. B. Williams , publisher of The
Farmers' Industrial Union , in a recent
letter to Dr. Ilartman says : "I have used
Pe-ru-na as a family medicine for several
years. I tind it of especial use for my-
self. I have had several tedious spells
with systemic catarrh and before using
Pe-ru-na I had tried several other rem
edies with little or no success. But in

An Opinion from St. Lionis.
The St. Louis Republic says that Alalo
bastiue bids fair to give Grand Itapids ,
Mich. , even more fame than her huge
furniture factories. This is a covering
for walls and ceilings , and takes the
place of kalsomines , which are very
objectionable and even dangerous on
account of the constantly decaying auiw
mal and vegetable matter which they
contain. Alabastiue makes a pure and
permanent covering , that can be re-
coated. It sets on the wall , growing
hard with age.
"Now , Patrick Muldoon , " said the
magistrate to the evidently alarmed
witness on the stand in a case of burg-
lary , "bear in mind that you have
sworn to tell the truth , the whoft ? truth
and nothing but the truth. "

doon , his eyes wavering from the judge

Remarkable Feat of Penmanship.
To write a long chapter of Genesis on
post card , in addition to selections '
from Shakspeare and Dickens , and the
whole of "Home , Sweet Home , " is a
feat of penmanship of which anyone
might be proud. This was some time
ago accomplished by a bank clerk ,
with a fine steel pen and with HO aid
from magnifying glasses. In all , there
were more than 10,000 words , while BO
beautifully was the work done that
many people have been able to read

are added to these minute losses the

however , is that the incessant tratlic
