It is to those women that Lydla

made from native roota and herba,
cornea aa a bleaslng. When the spir
Uu iim iii.npensd. the head and back
aches, there are dragging-down paint, norvousness, sleeplessness, and
reluctance to go anywhere, these are only symptoms which unless
heeded, are soon followed by the worst forms of Female Complaints.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
keeps the feminine organism In a strong and healthy condition. It cures
Inflammation, Ulceration, displacements, and organic troubles. In
preparing for child-birth and to carry women safely through the Change
of Life it is most efflolont ' ' '
Mrs. Augustus Lyon, of East Earl, Pa., writes: Dear Mrs. Pink
ham: -"For a long time I suffered from female troubles and had all kinda
of aches and pains In the lower part of back and sides, I could not
sleep and had no appetite. Since taking Lydla E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound and following the advice which you gave me I feel like a
new woman and I oannot praise your medicine too highly.
Mrs. Pinkham's Invitation to Women
Women suffering from any form of female weakness are invited to
write Mrs Plnkham, at Lynn. Mass. Out of her vast volume of ex
perience she probably has the very knowledge that will help your
case. Her advice Is free and always helpful.
m nt of owners to sell are proper char- l, ground that the United States Trea-
ge against tho amount allowed the
State for ritle piuitioe, provided the
purchase oX the land Involved is no
complied. An buildings essential
for storage purposes or for housing
caretakers on a State rifle range woul.l
bo a legitimate charge against the Ti
tle practice appropriation, but the er
ection of barracks for the accomoda
tion of the State Militia Is a matter
for tho State to take care of.
Tho War Department has recom
nrendod to, tho House Committee on
Military Affairs legislation providing
for the equipment of the militia with
the type of rllle used by the regular
army whenever such typo is chungiM.
At the present time tho regular nrmy
Is equipped with what Is known as the
New Springfield, while the militia U
using the old Krng. The War De
partment Is Issuing new Sprlngflelds
to tho militia but is charging the cost
against tho appropriation for the mil
itia in the several States. It is desir
ed to exchange the new guns for te
Krags as wa.s dune when the Krag re
placed the old Springfield, and also to
provide that tho War Department cai
do this in future without additional
legislation, It Is pointed out by
rial legislation. It Is pointed out by
the Department that in time of war
It Is absolutely necessary that tho
volunteer army und tho regular nrmy
should be equipped with the same r
llo and that is very advisable in time
Of peace as otherwise two kln.ta nf
cartridges must be manufactured. Tt
is Impossible to remodel the Krag Into
ury, particularly the banking fea
ture, should be operated for the bene
fit of the whole country. The Bankar
have acted as though the Treasury
should be conducted primarily to as
sist them in their business, calling In
deposits, buying or selling bonds, and
making loans whenever they thought
cation was necessary. Mr. Cortel
you's past record is sufficient to Jus
tify the presumption he will 'make
good' as Secretary of the Treasury. .V
man who started as a stenographer
and who has filled the positions of
Secretary to the President, Secretary
of Commerce and Labor, and Post
master General, to say nothing of b?
Ing Chairman of the Itepubllcan Na
tional Committee, and coming out of
the campaign with a surplus, is not
likely to fail as Secretary of the Trea
sury. Through all Mr. Cortolyou has
retained the respect of his associate
and the affection of his friends. whl:b
speivks volumes for him.

The confirmation of George Bruce
Cortolyou as Secretary of the Trea
sury to succeed Secretary Shaw, on
tho hitter's retirement was a gracious
and eminently proper action on th
part of the United States Senate. Mr.
Cortelyou is not a banker, and In the
opinion of many, instead of that be
ing a handicap it is a strong point In
his favor. The Impression 1b gaining
The reported determination of Chili,
Argentina, and probably several otlur
South American countries, to ralsi
their Ministers here to the ranK of
ambassadors has caused much com
ment timong me diplomatic corps.
The Ambassadors fom . Germany,
England, France and other great coun
trios do not relish the idea that South
American diplomats from small coun
tries shall enjoy all the rights and pri
vileges attaching to hteir positions.
It has only been a few years since the
United States first had any ambassa
dors whatever. Not it seems as though
we would hav a plethora of them.
