the most critical period
of a woman's existence ,
and the anxiety felt by
women as it draws near

a deranged condition ,
or she is predisposed to
apoplexy , or congestion
of any organ , the ten

likely to become active
and with a host of ner

weakness , inquietude ,

Another Woman's Case
" During chaiige of life words cannot ex
press what I suffered. My physician said I
had a cancerous condition of the female
organs. One day I read some of the testimonials
menials of women who had been cured by
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound ,

advice. Your meaicine made me a well
woman , and all my bad symptoms soon

in my chair we will change places ,
and I will teach you how to behave in

door , and. making a low bow , said :
! "Sir , master presents his kind com

"Return him my best thanks , and
here's half a crown for yourself. "
The Dead thus caught in his own trap ,

Cuticura Works Wonders.
"I suffered with eczema six months.
I had tried three doctors , but did not
get any better. It was ou my body
and on my feet so thick that I could
hardly put a pin on me without touch-
lug eczema. My face was covered ,
my eyebrows came out , and then it got
in my eye. I then went to another
doctor. He asked me what I tras taking -
; ing for it , and I told him Cuticura. He
said that was a very good thing , but
that he thought my face would be
marked for life. But Cuticura did its
work , and my face is now just as clear
as It ever was. I told all my friends
about my remarkable cure. I feel so

It is a sure cure for eczema. Mrs.

A Brisk Trade in Sermons.

man recently sold a box of waste pa

script sermons of her husband's. A
month or so thereafter , the ragman
again came around , and asked if the
lady had any more sermons to sell.
"I have some waste paper , " said she ,
"but why should you particularly want
sermons ? "
"Well , mum , you see I did so well
with them that I got here a month ago.
I got sick up in Altoona , and a preach
er there boarded me and my horse for
a couple of weeks for that box of ser
mons , because I hadn't any money.
Since then he's got a great reputation
in those parts as a preacher. I'll give
ten cents a pound for all you have. "
