Female Troubles Overcome
" Dkab Mrs. Piheham : I had female
trouble, painful menses, and kidney
complaint, also stomach trouble. About
a year ago I happened to pick up a
paper that contained an advertisement
of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound, and when I read how it had
helped others, 1 thought it might help
me, and decided to give it a trial. I
did so, and as a result am now feeling
perfectly well. 1 wish to thank you for
the benefit your medicine has been to
me." Mas. Cuaba. Stocbkb, Diller, Neb.
No flore Pain
. " Dear Mrs. Pixebah : Your Vege
table Compound has been of much
benefit to me. When my menses first
appeared they were very irregular.
They occurred too often and did not
leave for a week or more. I always
suffered at these times with terrible
pains in my back and abdomen. Would
be in bed for several days and would
not be exactly rational at times. I
took Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, and menses became regular
and pains left me entirely." Mas. K.

the following most sensible advice:
"While fewer physicians become in

In any form is exceedingly dangerous
when self-administered. No physician
should attempt to treat himsell, but

note of the various observations ths
have been made in regard to the nse of

Value of a Knowledge of Geology to
the Prospector,
(By Karl Donglaa, Vntvmitr ot Montana.)
The study of the remains of plant
and animal lite tnat-Jiave -existed in
past ages is like history, astronomy,
fossil languages, politics and all other
branches of human knowledge; it is
niigbtv interesting when out gets in
terested in it. But it is extremely dif
ficult to get very deeply iueterested in
somethiug that we know nothing about.
There are so many branches of knowl
edge that one cannot know everything.
But the subject on which I am asked
to write is, 1 believe, of vital interest
to the miner and prospector, though
our knowledge of it was not developed
for their special benefit, but because ol
the interest aud fascination of the eub
ject itself.
Though I never spent a week in
searh of mineral veins, I have a fellow
feeling for the prospector. In the first
place, there is a charm in outdoor life
in tramping over the hills and moun
tains and through the deep ravines and
rocky canyons; in going into camp
tired enough to make rest sweet, and
hungry enough to devour with the
keenest relish the ham, bacon, coffee,
flapjacks and anything else that hap
pens to come along that is eatable; and
in sleeping in the pure air under the
blue tent of the sky with the whisper
ing of the pines and the varied voices
of the mountain streams to charm
away worldly cares and lull to sleep.
It seems so good not to have to wear
stylish clothes, especially if one bas
none to wear; to be where there is no
fear of trespassing on any man's land,
and to fear nobody's dog; to feel that
the world is yours as much as any
body's, and whatever riohes you may
find buried in its treasure house you
can call your own.
The prospector descends into the
dark mine, submitting himself to
slavery awhile that be may "grub
stake" himself and be a free man for
the rest of the year and have a prospect
of "striking something rich" and be
coming at "VeiutAj or mora wealthy
than bis employer.
The mine owner is ranch the same
kind of a man, but he has the advantage
in having more money to start with,
and is looking for a place where he can
invest his money in a "good proposi
tion" and get richer.
With both mine owner and prospec
tor intelligence and judgment are need
ed. It is true that sometmes those
who have learned little from books and
nothing from experience have blun
dered onto rich leads; but if, the truth
were summed up 1 think it wonld ap
pear that a very large percentage of
good mines have been found by men
of experience, who have worked in
mines, have seen and bandied the ores
and have observed the rock in which
they occur. I firmly believe, too, that
a man's chances of finding the treas
ures hid in the eaith would be in
creased many fold by adding to his ex
perience that of other men, by study
ing th3 mode of occurrence of ores, the
rock formations in which they occur
in fact, the better knowledge of
geology and mineralogy he possesses
and the better his power of observation
and judgment the better his chances of
success. The same holds trne of the
dealer in mining property. It is true
that these sciences are large ones, but
it is just as true that the chances of
failure without the necessary knowl
edge are fully as large. If a sick man,
ignorant of the properties of drags,
were turned loose in an apothecary's
shop he might blunder onto something
that would help him, but the chances
would be against him. We need not
be scared by the voluminous books on
geology with their frightful looking
names. There are simple, interesting
books, giving the most important in
formation, and written especially for
prospectors and mining men, and for
the understanding of them no previous
knowledge of geology and mineralogy
are needed. These may lead to deeper
study later. But someone will my
that certain minerals have been found
where ho experienced prospector would
search and where geologists have said
they cannot occur. The trouble is,
an old miner comes from California,
to Montana and begins to look for gold
here. He knows just how the rock
looks in which tbe ore occurs wheie he
mined in California, and he is looking
for tbe same kind of rock and the same
looking ore, but he probably will nut
find it. An old Montana miner goes
to Colorado and meets with the same
disappointment. His views of tbe oc
currence of ores are too narrow. The
precious metals occur in many differ
ent kinds of rock and under a great
variety of conditions; and one would
have to know tbe geology of the whole
world to know all tbe conditions in
which they occur; yet there are certain
underlying truths that, if understood,
will vastly increase the chances o! (ac
cess and save not only many years but
many life times. Many brother geolo
gists perhaps I ought to say nncle ge
ologists, for I think they are of the gen
eration that is passing away have
studied a certain region and have
jndgfd all tbs world by that. I might
whisper to you, too, that not all who
talk and write on geological subjects
know just what they are talking about,
and I nave no doubt yon have thought
of that before reading this article.

A National Pawnshop.
Two recognised national Institutions
tn Mexico art the national pawnshops
and the thieves' market. In tht for
mer, every article pawned Is for sale,
If unredeemed within six months, and
there are always bargains to tie picked
op. The rate of Interest is not high,
snd on each article deposited some
thing Hkt tbe real value la given.
Strangest thing ot all to our own
money lenders, If, when at tbt tnd of
tht time, the owner Is unable to redeem
It and tbe article Is sold for more than
was loaned on It, a note to tht borrow
er invites him to call and claim tht
surplus over tht amount bt already
bas. At the thieves' market there It
not so much philanthropy, and he who
bas lost something of value and would
purchase It back Is apt to pay dearly
for It . The pawnshop keeps short
hours, but tbe candles In tbe booths of
tbe thieves market burn long after tbt
boulevards are deserted. It occupies a
half square, and every article for sslt
Is, If not confessedly, at least tacitly,
known to have departed from Its for
mer owner without bis consent. Con
tractors wbo leave tools or lanterns on
tht streets come to tht market every
morning to buy tbelr property back.
for tbt Mexican tblef Is a clever crook,
with persistency that might be directed
to a better use, and locks and bolts do
not deter blm any more than the police
man on every square that Is under tbt
rule of the Mexican city authorities.
