Many Women in this Condition Re

Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Convincing Proof of This Fact
Mrs. Lindscy Now Keeps House For Seven.
Termille,Ga. "I want to tell you how much I have been benefited
by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. About eight years ago I
got in such a low state of health I was unable to keep house for three in
the family. I had dull, tired, dizzy feelings, cold feet and hands nearly
all the time and could scarcely sleep at alL The doctor said I had a
severe case of ulceration and without an operation I would always
be an invalid, but I told him I wanted to wait awhile. Our druggist
advised iry husband to get Lydia K Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
and it has entirely cured me. Now I keep house for seven and work
in the garden some, too. I am so thankful I got this medicine. I feel
as though it saved my life and have recommended it to others and
they have been benefited". Mrs. W. E. Lindsby, R. R. 3, Tennille, Ga.

BACK TO ORIGIN OF SLANG
Word That Are Considered Staid and
uignlfled Have a Meaning Known
Only to a Few Users.
Original slang is often poetic. Per
haps the best way to prove this to the
professors will be to remind them that
some of their own worthiest and most
classic and respectable words are
themselves, If we go back to their
origin, Just the same slangy vagabonds
as these. Examine, for Instance, the
word Inveigh, Max Eastman writes In
the New Republic. There ts a staid
and dignified term, fit to be Incorporat
ed in a president's inaugural : "I will
not at this time Inveigh against the
custom prevalent among my contem
poraries." You can Imagine how it
would sound. And yet, poetically, what
does that word mean? In means "Into."
Vehl means to sail, "I will not at this
time sail Into my contemporaries I"
Here Is another Latin worcWnsult.
In its origin It means to Jump on ex
actly what is said everywhere by the
schoolchildren of America when the
appropriate situation arises.
Diatribe is a pretentious term. It
Implies something more thorough than
an insult, a more lasting denunciation.
You not only "jump on" somebody, but
you "rub it In." We used to say of a
crazy person that he was "off his trol
ley." And the word delirious meant
substantially the same thing In an
earlier stage of civilization. It came
from the Latin words de and lira,
which mean oft or out of your fur
row. The word precocious means pre
cooked, or, as we say, half baked.
Capricious means like a goat, and the
slang correlatives here are innumer
able. Imagine some worthy, refined and
graduated soul being offended by a
young upstart and responding some
what as follows : "It seems to me you
are a trifle capricious. I would hard
ly expect any one to inveigh ngalnst
me in this delirious manner, deliver
ing such a diatribe. Is it essential to
your precocity to insult your elders?"
And then suppose we translated this
somewhat according to the etymologic
al dictionary : "You goat I You must
be off your trolley to sail Into me like
that and then rub It In I Just because
you're half-baked you needn't think
you can Jump on your elders 1"
"You say you can offer me a fortune,
but is it all clean money?"
"It ought to be; I made it in soap."
The Average Consumer.
"Who's this man who is telling me
to'eat the luxuries of the table so as to
save the staples?"
"Why, what's the matter with you,
He's either got to give me the mon
ey to buy lobsters with or tell me I'm
one myself! Exchange.
"Atlas held the world on his shoul
"That's the storv."

Ridgway, Penn. "I suffered from female
trouble with backache and pain in my side for over
seven months so I could not do any of my work. I
was treated by three different doctors and was
getting discouraged when my sister-in-law told me
how Lydia E. Tinkham's Vegetable Compound had
helped her. I decided to try it, and it restored my
health, so I now do all of my housework which is
not light as I have a little boy three years old,"
Mrs. O. M. Enures, Ridgway, Penn.

500, 000-box crop of last year, it is

DAIRYMEN TO SUFFER
Feed Hold-up Causes Consternation in
Western Washington Herds May
Be Reduced as Direct Result.
Puyallup Eastern Washington
farmers, by holding up the price of
hay, will force Western Washington
farmers to retrench to the limit, if not
entirely go out of business, unless the
government steps in and controls
prices, is the opinion of H. L. Blanch
ard, head of the dairying department
of the Western Washington Experi
mental station. From advices re
cently received from Yakima he is led
to believe that Eastern Washington is
using a strangle hold on communities
that do not produce enough feed to
While the present conditions are
likely to prove disastrous, Mr. Blanch
ard says farmers are likely to profit by
the experience of the last two years
and obtain supplies enough to last the
winter. At the Puyallup Ice Cream
company, one of the large dealers in
butter fat, they were of the opinion
that the worst fall would be with the
small dairyman, as the larger places
would supply themselves now. The
milk supply is now falling off, due to
the dry weather. Present sour cream
is selling at 50 cents and sweet cream
at 60 cents, and milk is 35 cents a gal
lon. These prices must rise during
the winter, according to the wholesale
men. While consumers will go with
out butter rather than pay more than
50 cents now, it is only a question of
time before they will have to pay
more. The farmer is not getting a
fair profit on his products, but it will
be the consumer that will pay for the
high price of feed ultimately, ' is the
verdict of the wholesalers.
Mr. islanchard believes that re
trenchment can't help but" aid the
dairymen. They will be unable to
keep all their cattle, and it will be the
poor producers that will be sacrificed.
That there will be a great slaughter
this winter without government con
trol of feed prices is the statement re
cently made by Dr. H. T. Graves, for
merly state veterinarian.
Fishermen Prepare for Run.
Lewiston, Idaho Fishermen who

Says Corns Lift Out
Without Any Pain
You reckless men and women who
are pestered with corns and who have
at least once a week Invited an awful
death from lockjaw or blood poison
are now told by a Cincinnati authority
to use a drug called freezone, which
the moment a few drops are applied
to any corn or callous the soreness Is
relieved and soon the entire corn or
callous, root and all, lift off with the
Freezone dries the moment It is ap
plied, and simply shrivels the corn or
callous without inflaming or even Ir
ritating the surrounding tissue or
skin. A small bottle of freezone will
cost very little at any of the drug
stores, but will positively rid one's
feet of every hard or soft corn or
hardened callous. It your druggist
hasn't any freezone he can get It at
any wholesale drug house for you.
