A woman who is sick and suffering, and won't at least
try a medicine which has the record of Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, is to blame for her own wretched
There are literally hundreds of thousands of women in
the United States who have been benefited by this famous
old remedy, which was produced from roots and herbs over
thirty years ago by a woman to relieve woman's suffering.
Read what these women say :
Camden. V. J. it Is with pleasure that I send my testimo
nl&l for Lydia JB. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound, hoping- It
may Induce) other suffering women to avail themselves of the
benefit of this valuable remedy.
"I suffered from pains in ray back and side, sick headaches,
no appetite, was tired and nervous all the time, and so weak I
could bardly stand. Lydia K. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
mad me a well woman and this valuable medicine shall
always have my praise." Mrs. W. P. Valentine, 902 Lincoln
Ave Camden, N. J.
Erie, Pa. M I suffered for five years from female troubles, and
at last was almost helpless. I tried three doctors but they did
me no rood. My sister advised me to try Lydia K. Pinkham's
Vegetable Cora pound, and it has made me well and strong. 1
hop) all suffering women will Just gie Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound a trial, for it is worth Its weight In gold."
Mrs. J. P. Kndlich, K. F. D. 7, Erie, Pa.
Since we guarantee that all testimonials which we pub
lish are genuine, is it not fair to suppose that if Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound had the virtue to help
these women it will help any other woman who is suffer
ing from the same trouble.
For SO years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has been the standard remedy for
female ills. No sick woman does Justice to
herself who will not try this famous medicine.
Made exclusively from roots and herbs, and
haa thousands of cures to Its credit.
I If the slightest trouble appears which
t-s you do not understand, write to Mrs.
Pinkham at Lynn, Mass fcr her advice ilia
free and always helpful.

Telegram. )-Word waa received here thla
morning from Provo., B. D., Juat over the
Nebraska state line of the murder last
night of Mr. and Mrs. Tucker, ranchers
near that place, by their son-in-law, Dick
Barton. Barton, It is asaerted, killed the
old couple with an axe, after which he
cut up the bodies In a flendlah manner.
Barton formerly ran out of here aa flag
man on tha through passenger trains.
After the murder Barton unmercifully
beat his wife and exacted a promise that
she would not report him until he had a
chance to get away. Upon his departure,
however, she notified a neighbor and pur
suit was begun and he waa located in
Bdgemont. where he endeavored to dle
poae of his team and tried to get his bag
gage checked to Crawford. Neb., where he
probably intended to decamp for Wyoming.
While there la no positively known reason
for the ghastly deed, his domestic affairs
have been such as to warrant those who
are acquainted with the particulars to be
lieve that these furnished the motive for
his act. v
Before his arrest at Bdgemont a neigh
boring rancher met him in the cuatody of
the sheriff and made every effort to mur
der him on the snot, but. after being over
powered, he desisted, and to avoid any fur
ther outbreak he, too, was placed In Jail.
The feeling in Bdgemont is rather high
and It would not be surprising that sum
mary Justice be dealt out to Barton by his
enraged neighbors beore night.

without cause, for to the south and east

the center of the district buffeted by the
