Strange as it may seem, the Chicago
A'oiuau's Club has never discussed the
problem of wash day in an apartment
uuUillng; neither has the West End
Woman s Club, nor the Arche Club,
nor, so tar as anyone eau Und out, has
any woman’s club of tlie city. It is a
rare occurrence that a matter comes
before the public mind which has not
previously been considered by the
woman's club. It Is seldom that women
are forced to go outside the authority
of their organizations for a solution of
any really weighty problem. There can
be no doubt that concerning the regula
tion of wash day the clulw have been
negligent. They have had mothers’ meet
ings, they have given their best thought
to the solution of social problems, they
have dabbled in domestic affairs to the
extent of the servant question. Why
they should have so neglected the prob
would not let so good an opportunity
Judge Tuthill has presided over the
recreant masses these many years with
never an opportunity for so distinguish
ing himself as he has done iu the wash
day decision. He has never hesitated
to mete out Justice even of the sternest
sort: he has never faltered in the doing
of his duty, but it must be remembered
that duty never came to him with so
many perplexing complications as thia
of the wash-tubs brought. If he quailed
before the stern facts as they were
presented by the two chief witnesses.
If he hesitated in choosing between the
rights of the two sides of the case, no
one will ever know. Wisely he kept his
peace and. advising with no one, with
his duty ever before him. he chose to
emphasize the rule which lias been held
in many apartment bouses, and which
the better Judgment of every thinking
person will commend. It is now no
longer a rule, but a law. unwritten, yet
forceful nevertheless to hold every top
flat occupant to her week's end wash
As for the women's clubs. It Is too
bad they did not “get In" on this discus

decided to talk about it next week, and

action of the woman from the third flat,

Hearn that there is at least one dreaded disease
that science has been able to cure in all its
stages, aud that is catarrh. Hall’s Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure known to the medical
fraternity. Catarrh being a constitutional dis
ease, requires a constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting
directly upon the blood and mucous surfaces
of the system, thereby destroying the founda
tion of the disease, and giving the patient
strength by building up the constitut on and
assisting nature in doing its work. The pro
prietors have so much faith in its curative
power!, that they offer One Hundred Dollars

such a decision Is not possible, the club
may decide to send her a testimonial
of sympathetic sisterhood, expressing
the trust that she will be resigned to

The Resources of Siberia.
Under government encouragement It
is said that Siberia is gaining 200,000
farmers per year. Among its exports
are cereals, butter, wool, leather anti
dried and preserved meats. Already
this remote country, which the popular
imagination is apt to picture as a vast
waste, the abode of frost and snow, and
misery, Is becoming talked of as a pos
sible competitor with the well-known
cereal-producing countries of the world.
A member of the French bureau of for
eign commerce estimates that, on the
basis of the present population of Rus
sia in Europe, Siberia can sustain 80.-
000,000 inhabitants, although it now
has not one-tenth of that number. It

that human life would average three
on four times longer than it does if
people would reject the senseless prac
tice of cooking their food. Animals
and fowl live much longer In proportion
to the period of full development than
man. Says Prof. Tyler: "Man. for
some unknown reason, eats dead cells
(cooked cells) to replace the dead cells
that have been separated from the
body. In cooking food all the acids
and gases so necessary for the conser
vation and preservation of ideal health
escape with the steam, and the food
retains a greater supply of ash. lime
and other such substances than nature
requires for the amount of food taken
into the system.”
The daughter of Hon. J. H. Fletcher,
formerly governor of South Dakota, nut
now a resident of Salem, Oregon, has
lately attaiued an enviable position.
Iler success is remarkable, especially
when the fact is known that for some
time it was feared her career would be
shortened because of ill health.
Ex-Governor Fletcher in speaking of
the happy event in his daughter’s life
“For over two years my daughter
had been declining from a strong,
healthy, rosy-cheeked person to a pale,
weakly and helpless girl. She was
afflicted with terrible headaches, and
apparently grew weaker and more lan
guid, and apparently without cause.
We became greatly alarmed and feared
that her days were already numbered.
“I tried several doctors, one after
the other, but all without avail. Fin
ally, to please a friend, I bought a box
of Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills for Pale
People, and to our surprise, before it
was used her headaches ceased, the
color began to return to her cheeks and
lips and her strength began to assert
“I bought five boxes more and by
the time she had finished them she was
completely restored to her health, and
today our heart* are gladdened with
the society of a robust, rosy and
healthy girl instead of a pale, tired and
sickly one. In her case the transfor
mation was rapid and wonderful, and
I can never speak too highly of the
splendid merits of Dr. Williams’ Pink
No discovery of modern times has
proved such a boon to women as Dr.
Williams’ Pink Pills for Pale People.
Acting directly on the bluod and
nerves, invigorating the body, regulat
ing the functions, they restore the
strength and health to the exhansted
woman when every effort of the physi
cian proves unavailing.
For the growing girl they are of the
utmost benefit, for the mother indis
pensable, for every woman invaluable.
Everywhere Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills
for Pale People are recognized as a
specific for diseases of the blood aud
nerves. For paralysis, locomotor atax
ia, and other diseases long supposed
incurable, they have proved their effi
cacy in thousands of cases. They are
one of the greatest blessings ever be
