THE ILLS OF WOMEN
And How Mrs. Pinkham Helps
Mrs. Mart Bollinger, 1101 Marianna
St., Chicago, 111., to Mrs. Pinkham:
" I have been troubled for the past
two years with falling1 of the womb,
leucorrhcoa, pains over my body, 6lck
beaduches, backache, nervousness and
weakness. I tried doctors and various
remedies without relief. 'After taking1
two bottles of your Vegetable Com
pound, the relief I obtained was truly
wonderful. I have now taken several
more bottles of your famous medicine,
and can say that I am entirely cured."
Cincinnati, Ohio,, to Mrs. Pinkham : .
" For a long time I suffered with
chronic inflammation of the womb,
' pain in abdomen and bearing-down
feeling. Was very nervous at times, and
so weak I was hardly able, to do any
thing. Was subject to headaches, also
troubled with leucorrhcea. After doc
toring for many months with different
physicians, and getting no relief, I had
given up all hope of being well
again when I read of the great good
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound was doing I decided immedi
ately to give it a trial. The result was
simply past belief. After taking four
, bottles of Vegetable Compound and
jising'three packages of Sanative Wash
I can say I feel like a new woman. ' I
deem it my duty to announce the fact
vto my fellow sufferers that Lydla
E. Pinkham's Vegetable remedies have
entirely cured me of all my pains and
Buffering. I have her ' alone to thank
for my recovery, for which I am grate
ful. May heaven bless her for the
good work she is doing for our sex."
PROGRESS OF CATAPHORESIS.
Medical Illustration of What Can Be
Done With Electricity.
In dentistry no subject is more dis
cussed than . the painless filling and
extraction of teeth. Regarding the
fcftmer.Dr. Thomas H. White, when
seen in his office at 271 Morrison
street, near Fourth, said:
"That teeth can be filled absolutely
without pain is a positive fact, whioh
is demonstrated most every day in my
office. Teeth that are so sensitive that
the patient cannot endure an instru
ment to touch them oan be made thor
oughly Insensible to pain or feeling in
from 10 to 30 minutes, and can be
then filled or treated with ease. Yes,
electiioity in a great boon to mankind.
Just think of taking the nerve out of a
tooth in 10 minutes from the time of
the application of the electricity with
out the slightest knowledge of it by
the patient." The late - method of
bridge work invented by the brother
of Dr. White is a great improvement
on plates. '

Swept Property Loss Heavy.
Savannah, Ga., Oct. 4. For 15
hours, from' 8 o'clock this morning
until 6 o'clock tonight, Savannah has
been In the grasp of a West Indian tor
nado. During the day the wind blew
steadily from 50 to 70 miles an hour.
While the bity escaped with compar
atively little damage, the loss of prop
erty among the sea islands of the Geor
gia and South Carolina coasts is be
lieved to be heavy.
For miles in every direction around
Savannah the towns along the rivers
lire submerged. Only one fatality has
so far been reported the drowning of
a negro while attempting to reach the
land from a small island near Thunder
bold but heavy loss of life Is feared
on the South Carolina sea islands,
where such fearful loss of life occurred
during the great tjdal wave of 1893.
The conditions now are similar to those
during that storm. Owing to the sub
merged country and the Isolated loca
tion of the islands, no news can be had
from them until the water subsides.
For eight miles north of Savannah
the entire country is a lake, with only
the hummocks visible. At noon the
water was eight feet above the highest
tide. Driven on shore by the northeast
Storm, it filled up on the islands, swept
over . banks, and dams, carrying away
the remnant of the rice crop that was
left by the August storm, and had not
been gathered, arid wiping out farm
crops. The loss to rlceerowers alone
will be from $50,000 to $75,000. Of
the entire rice crop along the Savannah

15 per cent was lost in this and the pre

Surgeon Protests Agnlnst Overcrowding
on the Obdam.
Santiago de Cuba, Oct. 4. Surgeon
Majoi Seaman, of the transport Obdam,
declares that there will be a repetition
of the awful horrors that have charac
terized the voyage home of the other
transports if moie sick soldiers are sent
on board the vessel for tiansportation
to New York. He says, that when the
Obdam left Porto Rico many on board
were sick, yet the first quartermaster
refused to furnish wine for theh use,
but supplied them with hardtaok and
canned food, saying that he had no
authority, to furnish wine. Surgeon
Seaman said he- would hold him re
sponsible should any deaths occur, and
finally succeeded In obtaining suitable
food for those who were ill. He asserts
,that the ship has every ; man that she
can cany, and that u she reaones JMew
York without any deaths occurring, she
will be lucky. ... '
Hearing that a number of other sick
soldiers were to be sent aboard her, the
Burgeon-major made a protest, and
Stated that he was informed by General
Lawton that his protest showed lack oi
discipline, and that an officer bad been
appointed to see how many additional

Serious Blow to the Town of Colorado
Springs Eight Blocks Burned.
Colorado Springs, Colo., Oct. 4.
This oity had a visitation pf fire this
afternoon which threatened for four,
hours to destroy the entire business
district. The wind was blowing at the
rate of 45 miles an , hour from the
southwest when the fire started at the
Denver & Bio Grande freight depot, at
the foot of Cucharis street, at 2:10 P.
M., and the flames spread with great
rapidity. A strip four blocks - long
from north to south, and two blocks
wide from east to west, has been burned
over, but at this hour the conflagration
is believed to be under oontrol. The
flames are still leaping high over the
burnt district, but, the wind has died
down, and there is no doubt that the
fire engines, whioh have come from
Denver and Pueblo In response, to ap
peals for aid, will be able to confine
the flames within the present limits.
The Antlers hotel, one of the largest
in the West, three lumber yards and
two blocks of business houses' have been
destroyed. In round numbers the loss
is estimated at $1,000,000, and insure
ance at one-half of that amount.

excessive study and the exposure of

if weather undermined his health.
He was taken to his bed with pneu
monia and his overworked brain al
most collapsed. For several weeks he
was seriously ill.
Catarrh had taken root In his system
and his mind was in a delioate condi
tion. He was sent to Colorado Where
he spent three months without receiv
ing any benefit. Then a noted special-
1st from Cleveland treated him without
ivuil, and then a hospital in Chicago
was tried, but all absolutely without
benefit. Finally his physician recom
mended Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People, and from the first box he
began to improve. When he had taken
nine boxes be was completely cured.
This famous blood and nerve medicine
bad accomplished what all his former
expensive treatment failed to accom

has entirely left him: he ; is strong

Lotteries In Old Havana.'
In Havana the stranger's attention
is arrested by the venders of lottery
tickets, who stand on the street corners
with a pair of shear in one hand and
sheets of lottery tickets in the other,
ready to out off any number for buyers.
They are very adroit, and are apt to
persuade the credulous that they will
draw a fortune in the soheme. These
licensed lotteries are one of the great
evils there, especially to", the Spanish
people, who seem to be born gamblers,
and for whom the chances of dice,
cards, and lottery tickets appear to
have an irrestible charm, all classes In
Havana dealing in them habitually.

' Land-Crab of Cuba.
These creatures are larger than a
sea-crab, and live entirely on the land.
They run with great speed, even out
stripping a horse. At seasons of the
year they migrate in large bodies from
one side of the island ' to the other, in
columns sometimes half a mile wide,
and so dense aa almost to stop a car
riage on the road tjiey may be crossing.
These columns overcome every obstacle
in their direct line of march, even high
mountains. It is supposed that these
migrations are prompted by the in
stinct of propagation, as the crabs oeek
Jbe sea shore, deposit thir eggs, and
cast off the old shell. These crabe.are
so common about the city of Matanzas
that the inhabitants often reoelve the
sobriquet ' of "oangrejo. " They are
frequently found in the houses, and in
some casea even' under the beds. '
There is a species of conch which
makes similar marches through the
country In immense bodies. . These are
called pirates, from a very curious habit
they display. , This creature, which re
sembles a snajl, has the ability of de
taobiqg itself from the shell, which,
for some reason, H temporarily leaves
at times; and while its bouse Is thus
vacant, another, passiing, will back its
body, ' tall foremost, " into the empty
shell, and keep possession. .
The Pony Express.
At first the schedule was fixed at 10
days, an average of eight mils an hour
from start to finish. This was out
down to eight days, requiring an aver
age speed of 10 miles. The quickest
trip made was In carrying President
Lincoln's Inaugural address, which was
done In seven days and 17 hours, an
average speed of 10.7 miles per hour,
the fastest time of any one rider being
120 miles, from Smith's Creek to Fort
Churchill, by "Pony Bob," ha eight
hours and 10 minutes, or 14.7 miles
per hour. . Considering the distance
and difficulties encountered, such as
hostile Indians, road-agents, floods, and
snowstorms, and accidents 1 to horses
and riderB, the schedule wbs main
tained to an astonishing degree. The
service created the greatest enthusiasm
not only among the employee, but
also fh the ranks of stage employes,
freighters, and relsdents along the
route. To afd a "pony" in difficulty
; was a privilege,' and wde be to the man
who would so much as throw a stone in
