while perfecting title to his land. Since
returning to eastern South Dakota he has
stated that he found some pleasure In claim
life, notwithstanding the inconveniences
and discomfort'' which he frequently ex
perienced. The old man also has announced that he

down" a claim and that he is planning on
going to Montana In the near future, where
he can. make entry on an additional 160
acres and secure title to It from the gov

During Change of Life,
says Mrs. Chas. Barclay
Granltevf He, Vt "I was passing
through the Change of life and suffered
symptoms, and I
can truly say that
pound has proved
of gold to me, as It
restored my health
nnrl at.rpnirt.h. T
jijjl never forget to tell
my friends what
Vegetable Compound has done for ma
during this trying period. Complete
restoration to health means so much
to me that for the sake of other suffer
ing women I am willing to make my
trouble publio . so you may publish
this letter." -Mrs. Chas. JBakclay,
No other medicine for woman's Ills
has received such wide-spread and un
qualified endorsement. &o other med
icine we know of has such a record
of cures of female ills as has Lydia K.
Pinkbam's Vegetable Compound.
For more than SO years It has been
curing female complaints such as
inflammation, ulceration, local weak
nesses, fibroid tumors, irregularities,
pt-riodlo pains, backache, indigestion
and nervous prostration, ana It is
unequalled for carrying women safely
througli th? iriod of change of life.
It cobU but little to try Lydia E.
Pirikham's Yffotabla Compound, and.
as Mrs. Bare i y says, It Is "worth moua-
