Xvery Woman in America is Interested

PELVZC CATARRH WAS
DESTROYING HER LIFE.
PE-RU NA SAVED HER.
Miss Maria Dtichanne , 1S1 St. Eliza
beth street , Montreal. Caii. , writes :
"I am satisfied that thousands of
women sutler because they do not
realize how bad they really need treat
ment and feel a natural delicacy in con
sulting a physician.
"I felt badly for years , had terrible
pains , and at times was unable to attend
to my daily duties. I tried to cure my
self , but finally my attention was called
to an advertisement of Peruna in a
Bimilnr case to mine , and I decided to
give it a trial.
4'My improvement began as soon as
I started to use Peruna and soon I was
M well woman. J feel that I owe my
life and my health to your wonderful
medicine and gratefully acknowledge
this fact. " Maria Ducharmc.

Important "Awakenings" Arc Stlrrlne
Many Cities in the Country.
In this country notable revivals
within a year have stirred several of
our largest cities , among them Los An
geles , Keokuk , Denver ( where one day
the Legislature adjourned on account
of the meeting ) , Dayton , Louisville ,
Atlanta , Schenectady , Jacksonville and
Kansas City. In most of these cities
the active leadership has been taken
by the Evangelistic Committee of the
General Assembly ( Presbyterian ) . The
chairman of this committee is John II.
Converse , the President of the Baldwin
Locomotive Works , who has put into
its operations the energy , system and
pecuniary resources which mark the
conduct of a great business corpora
tion , with results which have made
an epoch in evangelism. His executive
genius has been fitly matched by the
spiritual leadership of the chief evan
gelist , the Itev. J. Wilbur Chapman ,
D. D. , who has evinced an extraordi
nary aptitude for a national movement
of this sort.
An important "awakening" for
such those engaged in the movement
choose to call it rather than a "re
vival" is meantime gathering force
and volume in the Congregational
Church , growing out of the recent visit
of a London nonconformist minister ,
the Rev. W. J. Dawson. At the na
tional council ( Congregational ) at Dos
Moines , Mr. Dawson spoke with such
effect that an evangelistic committee
was createdvith Dr. Hillis , of Ply
mouth Church , Brooklyn , as chairman ,
to organize and conduct a national
campaign. This is now in full ope
ration , with Mr. Dawson as the central
figure. The distinguishing thought is
the value of solid foundations of right
eousness , rather than emotionalism.
But to this inculcating of a revival ot
duty and honor is joined a zeal for
Christian service. Mr. Dawson ex
presses it thus : "As we have sought
and found , so it is now our turn to
seek and to find. " A practical illus
tration of this "hunger for souls" was
furnished during the fortnight's cam
paign in Boston , when , one night , dis
tinguished presidents of theological
seminaries , leading pastors , bankers
and merchants , and ladies of high so
cial'rank , fell in behind the band of
the Salvation Army and marched
through the slums , gathering in the
outcasts for a midnight meeting in
one of the largest halls of the city.
Mrs. P. Brunzel. wife of P. Brunzel ,
stock dealer , residence 3111 Grand
Ave. , Everett , Wash. , says : "For fif-
teen years I suffered
with terrible pain in
my back. I did not
know what it was to
enjoy a night's rest
and arose in tUe
morning feeling tireti
and unrefreshed. My
was simply inde
scribable. When I
finished the first box
of Doan's Kidney
Pills I felt like a
different woman. I
continued until I had
taken five boxes.
JJoan's Kidney Pills
act very effectively , very promptly , re
lieve the aching pains and all other
annoying difficulties. "

Muffs Worn for Ages.
In many of the portraits of the six
teenth century one often sees a strip of
rich , soft fur wound around the wrist
of a noble dame. This , was used to
cover the neck or fulfill the function
of the muff , and to it was often at
tached a small animal's head or a
skull , cunningly wrougnt in metal and
adorned with precious stones.
As was the case with so many ar
ticles of dress , the muff was first the
exclusive property of the nobility , and
was carried by the commonest women
of Venice as well as by the women of
the highest rank.
The first Venetian muffs were small ,
made of a single piece of velvet , bro
cade or silk , lined with fur , the open
ing enriched with gold or silver but
tons set with precious stones. By 1GG2
the muff seems to have been recognized
as the necessary adjunct of the ward
robe of a woman of fashion.

THE A. P. A. AS A DIPLOMAT ,
Uelvilla E. Stone Estimates that the
Association Makes for Peace.
Tne Associated Press has been able
to usurp In a large measure the func
tions of the diplomat , and I think it
makes for universal peace in a re
markable way. Instead of public ques
tions now passing through the long
ind tedious methods of diplomacy as
formerly , the story is told with author
ity by the Associated Press. The point
of view of a country is presented no
longer by diplomatic communication ,
but in the dispatches of the Associated
A striking instance of this occurred
some months ago , when a Japanese
war vessel went into tne neutral har
bor of Chlfu and captured the Rychit-
elni , a Russian gunboat which had
sought an asylum there. Our corre
spondent vras on the Rychitelni when
the Japanese lieutenant and a detach
ment arrived , and was a personal wit
ness of the occurrence. His story ap
peared throughout the civilized world ,
and was made the subject of represen
tations by Russia , through her ally ,
France. In less than a week the Japa
nese government prepared a careful de
fense of their action and handed it to
Mr. Egan , our correspondent in To-
kio , with a request that he send it
throughout the world. It was done ,
and it closed the incident. They made
no effort , and distinctly said that they
would make none , to send an official
answer to Russia on the subject
through the ordinary channels of di
plomacy , but chcse rather to send it
through the agency of the Associated
The authorities of the foreign of
fices of the different European govern
ments recognize the independence of
the Associated Press , and have vir
tually made choice of it as a forum
for the discussion of current questions
of international interest. They recog
nize that a telegram of the Associated
Press , published as It is , throughout
the world , unless immediately explain
ed , may arouse a public sentiment that
an never be met by the ordinary meth
ods of diplomacy. They recognize that
in the end it is the high court of pub-
lic opinion that must settle interna- \
tional questions , and not the immediate
determination of the foreign office of

that the system requires attention.

Dear Mrs. Pinkham :
" I have suffered everything with backache
and womb trouble I let the trouble run on
until my svstera was in such a condition that
I was unable to be about , and then it was I
coipmenced to use Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege

much suffering I would have saved , I should
have taken it months sooner for a few
weeks' treatment made mo well and strong.
My backaches and headaches are all gone and
I suffer no pain at my menstrual periods ,
whereas before I took Lydia E. Pinkham's ,
Vegetable Compound I suffered intense pain. "
