The diseases most feared are those which are
Inherited handed down from generation to gen

destructive of these is Cancer, which finds the
greatest number of its victims among the children

with this dreadful malady. You may carry this poison in the blood for years, but

The Story of a Stricken Woman
Whom Doctors Were Not
Able to Help
Jfcw the Newt, ConnertriUe, Indiana.
The story of Mrs. Nellie M. Hed-
den, of No. 621 Summit avenue, Con-
nersville, lnd., contains an important
lesson for many American women who
suffer in silence rather than face the
ordeal that the usual treatment of
their troubles entail. It is a story
that rings with honest gratitude and
does not tell half the misery that the
narrator endured. Other women who
are suffering as Mrs. Hedden did will
know how to understand and appre
ciate much that cannot be told in a
newspaper, article.- Mrs. Hedden 's
experience is best given in her own
words. She says:'
"For nearly a year I endured terri
ble agony caused by a general break
ing down of the nervous system, - fe
male weakness and suppression of the
periods. I suffered greatly with bear
ing down pains and was very weak
and short of breath. My circulation
was very bad, causing numbness of
limbs, dizziness and headache all the
time. My heart would sometimes
feel as if there was a heavy weight on
it. I had never been healthy and
strong, so you can readily see that I
was in no condition to withstand such
a combination of ailments. ,
"I grew worse very rapidly and all
the doctors I tried failed to check my
decline. A "friend" of iny- husband
told him how much good Dr. Wil
Hams' Pink Pills had done his wife
so I commenced taking them and can
now state tnat they are tbe only re
lief I ever had. The first box helped
me so much that I was thoroughly
convinced of the emcacy of the rem
edy. I continued the treatment for
several weeks, using six boxes in all.
In conclusion 1 will say that it
any one, who is suftenng the same as
I was, will take Dr. Williams', Pink
Pills as directed they will be reward
ed." - '

Net Additions) to Farm Resource Be
tween 1890 and 190O Waa Greater
than Valme of All Faroe Iaveatmenta
Fifty Years Ago.
Farming Is so vast an Interest that
Its current condition cannot be express
ed In figures. It Is not capitalized In
stocks and bonds, and its values are
not quotable from day to day. But any
Intelligent farmer can make a compari
son of' tbe general state of his indus
try with what It was six or eight years
ago, and will then realize tbe immense
gain that has occurred. In fact, tbe
activity among the railways and the
rapid growth of foreign exports largely
rest on farm production.
It is stated by the chief statistician
of; the agricultural section of the
twelfth census that tbe net additions
to farm resources in the ten years be
tween 1890 and 1900 exceed the value
of all farm investments in 1850. As
the writer referred to puts the case:
The Increased wealth of our farmers.
as the result of their last ten years' la
bor, equals tbe farm wealth of the na
tion reported as the outcome of their
toil and economies from the settlement
at Jamestown to the middle of the nine
teenth century." Advances on the stock
exchange fade into a small' affair be
side a colossal increment like that. In
the United States to-day there are at
least 5,700,000 farms, or about one to
every thirteen inhabitants. - In 1850 the
number was 1,149,073. In ten years
the number has increased 1,150,000, and
In the same time farm -wealth has ex
panded by not less than $6,500,000,000.
In the'twelve adjacent States of Illi
nois, Missouri, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan,
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, North Da
kota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kan
sas the number of farms has increased
since 1890 from 1,923,822" to 2,220,000.
These States added ?2,500,000,000 to
their farm wealth between 1880 and
1890, and a still larger sum In the last
ten years. 1 .v "
The government is dot unmindful of
the vast import of agriculture. Con
gress has endowed agricultural col
leges in every State and Territory.
These Institutions represent a value of
$53,000,000, and their Income is $6,
000,000. Their students last year num
bered 31,658. The annual national ap
propriation for experiment stations Is
$789,000. - '"
When American farmers note what
Is going on In intensive farming. Irri
gation, cattle-raising, improvements
and preservation of products, manage
ment of soils, betterment of facilities
to reach markets and new uses for
waste products, they will see that their
Industry is truly the most expansive as
well as the greatest. Though the pop
ulation of the country should continue
to double, inside of forty years, there
can be no doubt that the farmers of this
country, the most scientific and effect
ive in the world, will meet all demands
and be the main reliance for foreign
nations when . their own production
runs short. Chicago Bonds and. Mort

The artist answered smilingly.
"I will tell you how that happened.
He asked me to dinner one day, and
after, we left the table took me to see
the picture and told the usual story,
Then," turning abruptly, he asked
" 'How much is that painting worth T
