GET DOWN TO COMMON SENSE.
Th postal department of the United
States government will be in far bet
ter business, if in its desire to curtail
the cost of maintenance of its es
tablishment, it shall strike out, for
ever, the needless, costly and asslnlne
system of red-tape now congesting, de
laying, burdening and Impoverishing it,
rather than making a fool attempt to
censor, reduce and prescribe the lim
its and qualities of the great Ameri
can Sunday daily. If only some keen,
level-headed man could be put In
charge of the department, who would
shave and cut and trim the business
down to an every-day, commercial
basis, and eliminate the dragging,
time-eating processes that hamper it
and Inordinately increase the cost of
its administration, it would be a bless
ing to government and people alike.
The report of the joint-commission at
Washington is a piece of kid-glove,
amateur work, fax-fetched, inopera
tive and useless. If the rate on sec
ond class matter is really too low,
raise It; the fixing of rates is a pre
rogative of the department; it set the
rate complained of, and it may, as
easily, fix a newer and more compen
sating one. But it were better for all
concerned, that It look inward for
means of balancing its annual esti
mates and annual cost, rather than
outward. Wipe out the dollar-consuming
jugglery of its own system and
put it on a square, quick, feasible lev
el with other businesses of the coun
try, and, having thrown tradition,
precedent and red-tape to the winds,
talk business to the people, instead of
such rot as was framed up in the re

Franklin K. Lane, of the Interstate
Commerce Commission, will know a
whole lot of valuable things about
railway manipulation in the Pacific
west by the time he closes his in
quiry into the Harriman merger at
Los Angeles, and his illimitable ac
quisition of fact will not be confined
to the merger alone. There are vast
elements of Information at his very
hand, every day, voluntarily and hon
estly offered, of which he cannot even
take cognizance, further than to make
passing mental record, perhaps, of the
tremendous volume of abuses attrib
utable to unfettered railway domina
tion out here. But it is good to have
these things known by the commis
sion ; it will at least give it to know
why It was created, and spur it on
to the exercise of its last and best
function of correction. From the
wide-spread, authoritative scrutiny
now being imposed by the Commission,
there should come some degree of re
lief for the people.

MRS. ELVA BARBER EDWARDS
There are three critical stages in a
woman's life which leave their mark
in her career. The first of these stages
is womanhood, or the change from a
care free girl to budding womanhood,
The second is motherhood, and the
third is Change of Life.
Perils surround each of these stages,
and most of the misery that comes
to women through ill health dates
from one or another of these im
Women should remember that Lydla
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
made from native roots and herbs has
carried thousands of young girls over
the critical period of puberty, has
prepared mothers for childbirth, and
in later years carried them safely
through the change of life more suc
cessfully than any other remedy in
the world, Thousands of testimonials
from grateful persons, two of which
are here published, substantiate this
fact beyond contradiction.
Mrs. George Walters of Woodlawn,
111. writes 1
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:
"I feel it my duty to tell you of the good
Lydia E. Pinkham's Veetable Compound
has done me in preparing for childbirth.
After luffering and losing my children a
friend advised me to try your valuable me
dicine, and the result was that I had very
little inconvenience, a quicK recover mm

Dear Mrs. Pinkham:
"I want to tell you bow Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound carried me
through the critical period of the Change of
Life without any trouble whatever, also
cured me of a very severe female weakness,
I cannot say enough in praise of what your
