develop into those serious inflamma

completely wreck health.
Mrs. Pinkham invites women to
write freely and confidentially to her
about their health and gst the benefit
of her great experience with the suf

SUICIDE ON THE INCREASE.
Causes that Contribute to the Fre-
. quencjr of Self- Destruction. r
The decay of religious sentiment
which Is to be observed in all those
countries which are in the foremost
rank as regards knowledge, and espe
cially the growth of scientific knowl
edgehas perhaps conduced more to
the spread of suicide than has any oth
er single cause. 'That the decadence of
orthodox belief is an important factor
In the increase- of self-murder is dem
onstrated in great cities like Paris, Ber
lin and Vienna, 'where agnosticism is
rampant and the greatest number of
Dr. Ireland traces the greater portion
of the causes of suicide to severe strain
upon the nervous system which may be
the outcome of a multiplicity of causes.
Among these causes may be mentioned
the increased strain of modern life up
on the nervous system. The following
are the mean annual rates per 1,000,000
population of some of the European
countries: Saxony, 1861-70, suicides.
281; 1871-80, suicides, 325; 1881-84, sui
cides, 370; 1885-88. suicides, 33a In
Denmark during the same periods, 283,
266, 249, 259. In France, 129, 161, 189,
212.- In Prussia, 127, 153, 198, 204. In
Belgium, 61, 81, 107, 116. In Sweden,
80, 86, 96, 110. In England and Wales,
66, 70, 74, 78. In Norway, 82, 70, 68, 66.
Italy, 27, 37, 37, 48, 4a It will be ob
served that with the exception of Nor
way the suicide mortality rate has In
creased, -and m most countries very
considerably within recent years. The
diminution In Norway . is attributed
says the Nineteenth Century Review,
to the energetic attack which the Nor
wegian government has made an alco
holism. The same journal says that, id
the case of Italy particularly, emigra
tion accounts to some extent for the
low rate prevailing there. It Is evi
dent that emigration provides an outlet
for a great deal of misery and const!
tutes a hopeful alternative to suicide.
The rate of suicide mortality in the
United States is one in 35,000. Dr. L).
R. Dewey finds that in the New En
gland States since 1860 suicide has in
creased about 35 per cent In Massa
chusetts It has- increased In thirty
years, 1860-90, from seventy to ninety
to the million living, and in Connect
icut from sixty-one to 103 per million,
A steady increase of self-destruction Is
common to the whole civilized world.

HOUSE PLANT PESTS.
INSECTS WHICH DESTROY YOUR
Three Enemies that Attack Them and
Spoil Their Beantyt Aph s. Scale and
Bed Spiders come Effectual Means
for Their Destruction. -- - -
The arch enemy of the window gar
den is the insect pest. They spoil a
plant's good looks and lower its vital
ity until it either dies outright or ceases
to bloom or make active growth. Prob
ably not one woman in twenty takes
her plants through a winter without
having them attacked sooner or later
by insects. nce on the spot and un
molested, they Increase like the Hordes

The reason Insects are worse on
house plants than In the garden Is be
cause the first are grown under high
ly artificial conditions. Lfving-rooms
are unbealthf ully hot; the potted plants
are cramped in root and subject to
water gorge or thirst starvation if the
watering pot is in careless hands.
Moreover, the atmosphere is sur
charged with dust and coal - smoke.
And as insects always attack first
weak or dirty foliage there is a special
attraction to them in every struggling
house plant. " . -
The common house Insects are -aphis.
or green plant louse, the scale and the
red spider. ; The aphis is the most com
mon. The usual recommended kero
sene emulsion will kill them readily
enough, but the trouble is that at the
first sprinkle they drop off and fall to
the earth. Here they hide, ready as
soon as the flurry is over to climb up
the stems and go sucking the plant's
Juices again. To avoid this lift the
plant from the shelf with great care,
so as not to jar or dislodge them. Wrap
a cloth around the top of the pot and
close to the plant's stems, so the earth
in the pot can neither tumble out nor
the insects tumble In. Then quickly
Invert the plant's top Into a pan of
water, and If the water is quite warm
so much the better. - Lift the plant out
and shake vigorously. Dip again In the
water, then again -snake and so con
tinue until every tiny louse has been
dislodged. -Rinse the top well in clean
water and return to the window. If
thorough job has been done there will
be no more trouble, but the plant
should be examined again In a couple
of-days and. If need be, -the treatment
scaie insects stick to the bark or
leaves as though they were glued there.
Dislodge them with a wooden tooth
pick, keeping a close lookout for them,
and finish by washing the plant well
in soapy water. ' This must be repeated
every few days until no more scale can
be found.. They are not over common,
but a peculiarly stubborn pest
Red spider Is almost as common as
aphis, but so tiny that few know that
this is what is the matter with their
plants. When without any apparent
reason leaves turn a sickly "color or
show tittle yellow specks all over them,
or begin to curl at the edges, we may
suspect Mr. Red Spider, no bigger than
a grain of red pepper and camping with
his wife and babies, hisparents, grand
parents, aunts, uncles and cousins. on
the Bunder side of the plant's leaves.
Too hot and too dusty air is the cause
of the red spider. ' There Is one sure
and simple remedy for him and his. It
is water... Have It warm and plenty of
it, and see that the under side of the
leaves get as much wetting as the
upper, and this foe Is soon vanquished.
A plant can bedipped in water as hot
as the hand can be borne in, and It will
not hurt It In the least if not kept
longer at a time beneath the water than
two or three seconds. That degree of
heat kills the red spider quickly. Dip
palf a dozen times Irr the hot water In
quick succession and the work Is done.
Wash all plant leaves often. - A clean
plant is not inviting to insects. Kill the
first foe that makes his appearance and

Catarrh has become such a common
disease that a person entirely free from
this disgusting complaint is seldom met
with. It is customary to speak of Catarrh
as noininjr more serious man a Daa coia,
a simple inflammation of the nose and
throat! It is, in fact, a complicated and
very dangerous disease ; if not at first, it
very soon becomes so.
The blood is quickly contaminated by
the foul secretions, and the poison through
tne general circulation is earned, to an
parts of the system.
Salves, washes and sprays' are unsatis
factory and disappointing, because they do
not reacn tne seat ot tne trouble. fc. a. s.
does. It cleanses the blood of the poison
and eliminates from the system all catar
rhal secretions, and thus cures thoroughly
and permanently the worst esses.
Mr. T. A. Williams, a leadta? drr-eoods l
chant of Spartanburg, 8. C, writes : " For years
a naa a severe case or
nasal Catarrh, with all
the disagreeable effects
which belong to that
disease, ana which
make life painful and
unendurable. 1 used
medicines prescribed by
leading physicians ana
sugjrestea by numbers
of friends, bat without
getting any better. I
then began to take S. 8.

effect, and cored me ,

bottles. In my opinion S. S. S. is the only medi
cine now in nse that will effect s permanent cure
is the only purely veg
etable blood purifier
known, and the great
est of all blood medi
cines and tonics.
If yon have Catarrh don't wait until it
becomes deep-seated and chronic, but be
gin at once the nse of S. S. S., and send
for our book on Blood and Skin Diseases
and write our physicians about your case,
