That despondency in women is a mental condition often
traceable to some distinctly female ill I
Women who are well do not have -the blues, neither are
they irritable and restless. Derangement of the female
organism breeds all kinds of miserable feelings such as back
ache, headache, and bearing-down feelings. Try Lydia. E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. There is no doubt that
it has made many remarkable cures of female ills after all
other means had failed. There is hardly a day that some
woman docs not write U3 that this simple old . medicine,
made only of roots and herbs, has cured her of a severe
illness after several doctors had done their best and failed.
Here are two such letters -read them they are
genuine and reliable. .j'r'
Baltimore. Md.-For four year my life was a misery t
me. I had suffered with female troubles so Ions; that I was
discouraged. I had given up all hope of ever being well when
1 began to take Lydia 12. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. It
restored my health and I felt as though new life had been
given me, and I am recommending it to all mr friends."
Mrs. 7. 8. Ford, 1038 Lansdowoe St., Baltimore, Md.
Rock laud. Me.-4 1 was troubled for a long time with pains
in my Iww-k nd side and was mlserabe in every way. 1 had

get well. I rad a testimonial about Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound and thought I would try it.
" After taking three bottles I never was so well In my life.
I am recommending Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
to all my friends." Mrs. Will Young, 6 Columbia Avenue,
For SO years Lydia K. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has been the standard remedy for
female Ills. Js7o sick woman does justice to

City Eleetloa Case la Air.
AJI of the politicians appear to be still
up In the air over the' question whether or
not there can lawfully be held a spring
election In this city. This is the last day
for calling the primary under the election
laws, but the city clerk had not called one
for the reason that It would be impossible
to have a primary without candidates, and
there can now be no partisan candidates.
Therefore the city clerk will not Issue any
call for or notice of primaries.
Monday evening at the council meeting
City Attorney Btewart handed to City
Clerk Pratt formal responses to the ques
tions propounded by the former Saturday
Just after the discovery that the time for
the filing of candidates had passed.
'What I think ought to be done." said
the county attorney. "Is to have the city
central committee meet and arrange for
the nomination of a ticket, and have the
name put on the ballot by petition. The
democrats might do the same thing If
they so wished. I don't know whether that
will be dame or not."
If this be done, he said, it must be done
right away. In this way it would be pos
sible to hold sn election this spring with
out any aid or Intervention from the legis
lature, and It would riot be necessary to do
any charter tinkering one way or the

Mr. Perry writes: "The vitality and usefulness sf my
powers, which 1 have preserved through a long life up to
the age of ninety-two. 1 attribute partly to moderation In
all things, partly to an indisposition to worry and partly to
my natural abhorrence of all kinds of drugs.

Malt Whiskey an indispensable medicine. As a tonic and
general preserver of health in old age 1 believe that It has
no equal." "v.
