It is a well-known fact that Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
has cured more women than any other
remedy. It therefore must be the
best possible medicine for female ills.
But some women make the mistake
of thinkiug that they will try some
thing else, simply because it is new.
That mistake is often a fatal one—
fatal to the health and happiness of
Is it not foolish to risk the possible
results of such experiments? Is it not

thirty years, and which has never
been found wanting? Do not therefore
let any one persuade you to try some
thing which they say is just as good.
It cannot be just as good. Mrs. Pink

can be only one best. This is not a
mere assertion, but is a positive fact,
admitted by hundreds of regular

WHEN TO MARRY.
Depends Upon People,Time, Kind, Taste
At what ag: should a man marry?
That depends upon the man. Some men
ire more fitted for the responsibilities

15, said a man in discussing this irn-
xirtant subject recently. If marriage,

igure a man Is likely to get Into what
oiay be called the habit of celibacy,
from which as from other bad habits,
it is hard to break away. In this habit
of celibacy he will continue till he is
about sixty years of age, when a great
desire will come over him to try what
matrimony is like Just before he dies,
and he will propose, right and left to
everything in petticoats, until at last

his money or for bls position, or be
cause some one Is tired of being called
‘‘Miss" and wants the novel sensation
of writing “Mrs.” before her name.
An old man told a friend that he
wanted to marry before he died if only
to have some one to close his eyes.
"Perhaps,” suggested the friend, “you
will get some one who will open them.”
It is not natural for a young girl to
wish to marry an old man. A father
said to his daughter, “Now, when it is
time for you to marry I won’t allow you
to tnrow yourself away on one of the
frivolous young fellows I see around. I
shall select for. you a staid, sensible,
middle-aged man. What do you say
to one of about 50 years of age?”
“Well, father,” replied the girl, "If it
Is Just the same to you, 1 should prefer
two of twenty-five.”
Perhaps the best advice one could
give a young man in this matter is to
say: “Wait until you cannot wait any
longer.” Wait, that is to say, until she
—that not impossible she—comes with
smiles so sweet and manners so gra
cious that you cannot wait any longer,
then marry, and may you be happy ever
after! As to the age at which women
should marry, I am afraid of burning
my fingers with that question. All I
shall say Is that if some women are
not worth looking at after thirty years
of age. there are quite as many not
worth speaking to before it. Let a man
please himself, but let him not marry
either a child or an old woman.”—Pliil-
“I had been in poor health for
twenty years, having inflammation of
ovaries and womb trouble. Although
treated by physicians, I could not gain
strength nor do my work, and was so
low-spirited and tired of life. A friend
