Praises Lydia E. Pinkham’«
“ I have taken Lydia E. Pinkham’*
Vegetable Compound for some time and
I would not be with
out It in the house.
As I am a children's
nurse, I hare to be
on my feet a great
deal and your medi
cine has helped me
wonderfully. I was
hardly able to do my
housework when I
began taking it, and
now I am a strong
and well woman,
able to do all that
and go out nursing besides. I have
also used the Saqative Wash and found
it beneficial."— Mas. G ertrude L. S tew ,

Hundreds o f letters like these are

Great writers have had “ artistic con
science" to a degree that sometimes
caused them painful labors. In 1706,
when Joseph Addison, the English
poet and essayist, was undersecretary
o f state he was given as a matter of
official business the task of writing to
Hanover that Queen Anne was dead.
He found It so difficult to express
himself satisfactorily that the lords of
the regency were obliged to employ

able message, but the last one seemed
as Inadequate as the first, and In de
spair he cast It after Its predecessors
into the waste basket.
Southwell stated the simple fact, as
he was ordered, in the ordinary lan
guage o f business, and It Is said he
then boasted of his superiority to Ad
dison in having readily done that
which Addison atte'mptlng to do hud

so It can be taken apart. Remove
these bolts, being careful not to bend
the plates, and cut the long bolts In

Before the condenser Is taken apart
It Is best to measure the exact dis
tance between the two end plates, so
that the bakelite strips can be cut to
the exact length. This 's necessary
because the distance between the bear

same. In 17-plate condensers there
will be 9 stator plates for each sec

"A t limes." he says In Radio Broad

these notes, that a definite relation

made of platinum and diamonds, re

though the crystal Is transparent, no
