"Why don't you go inside your-

What Madge Regretted.
I followed her with gratitude and
humility, pushing out of sight the
vanity which she had iust aoocased
gratiude for her timely succor of
my wounded spirit, humility before
the sanity, the greatness of spirit,
with which she, a woman who had
possessed rare beauty, had seen her
youth pass, and welcomed with ban
ners the silvering hair and etching
tacial lines of middle-age.

Why Women Get Despondent
Are not women naturally as light-
hearted, brave and hopeful as men?
Yes, certainly; but a woman's organ
ism is essentially different from a
man's more delicate, more sensi
tive and more exacting. . Women in
delicate health are more dependent,
more nervous, more irritable and
more despondent. When a woman
develops nervousness, sleeplessness,
backaches,. headaches, dragging-
down pains and melancholia "she
should lose no time in giving Lydia
t. finkham s . Vegetable Compound
a fair trial, as it will quickly dispel
such troubles. - This root and herb
medicine contains no drug and has
been the standby of American wom
anhood for nearly fifty years. '
