Ills rosomblo vory closely tho terror

Tho Itov. W. A. Donton, of GIrard,
Crawford county, Kansas, tolls tho
following story of a harrowing expo
rlonco of ono of thoL members of his
family: "My wlfo," he says, "was
nssallcd for fifteen years by a combi
nation of ailments following tho birth
of our first child. Fomalo weakness,
rhoumatlsm, dropsical tendencies, In
digestion, torpid liver, nervousness,
Insomnia and Irregularity of tho
heart action woro among them. Tho
food sha nto fermented In her stom
ach, 8ho had frequent dizzy spoils,
her limbs wero swollen, hor norves
woro quite shattorcd and sho was
many times on tho verge of heart
"Physicians' gave her only tempora
ry rollof. Hor youngest sister had
UBod Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Palo Peoplo with benefit for stomach
difficulty. My brother-in-law had
found thorn helpful for heart troublo
and several nolghbors had given fa
vorablo roports about them, finally
my wlfo was Induced to try thom.
Sho oxporloncod Improvement almost
at onco and continued to uso them.
Thoy rollovod her sleoplossnoss, tho
smothoring sonsatlons havo disap
peared and havo not annoyed hor for
years. Thoy freed her from stomach
troublo and tho dropsical tondoncy
was mitigated. Tho. process of tho
tho rhoumntlctc affection, which had
begun to mnko hor Angora crooked,
was stayed and tho pain was banish
od. In ovory respoct thoy gavo her
moro holp than any other remedy sho
had ovor used, and sho is today la
hotter hoalth than for many yeara
"Dr. Williams' Pink Pills havo
earnpd our full confidence. Thoy are
our staple household remedy, and I
am In tho habit of recommending
thom to nil who suffer from troublo
llko those which affected my wlfo."
AH tho olomonts necessary to glvo
now llfo and rlchnoss to tho blood
and rostoro shattorcd nerves aro con

Williams' Pink Pills for Palo People.
Thoy aro also a specific for troubles

- ...... m u reported rrom one
museum to another and become, tho
subject of gossip among archaeolo
gists and collectors, and finally came
10 me attention of the Egyptian au
thorltles, who, after a brief Inm.irv
becamo convinced that tombs of tho
mnraons, unknown to professional
archaeologists, had been discovered
and wero being rifled by Arab van
dals. Tho police took up tho case and
Boon developed a most astonishing
chain of circumstances.
It appeared' that an Arab grave
,uu' vmg among tho nuns of
ineues, discovered- tho tomb of a roy
al porsonago and rovealed tho secret
to his two brothers nnd ono of his
sons, who assisted him In securing
such portion of Its contents as could
be taken away without detection and
sold to chanco tourists. From time
to tlmo tho lucky discoverers of this
"mo or wealth replenished their
stores by midnight visits. Among
tho articles found wero writings on
i'iFiuB, Bcaraos and ornaments of
goia and sllvor, and other things usu
ally found In tombs, which threw now
bui. upon certain dark corners of
Egyptian history, and It was proved
that tho thieves had revealed a verl
tablo musoum of antiquities. When
this knowledgo finally camo to tho
government a thorough exploration
was mado under the" direction of tho
director of antiquities. Excavations
disclosed 21 tombs cut out of a rocky
hlllsldo containing tho bodies of 12
kings and 27 other membors of tho
royal families of Egypt from tho sev
enteenth to tho twenty-first dynasties,
who had been burled between 1900
and 1000 D. C.
It was tho most sensational and
tho most valuablo discovery ovor
maao in Egypt, and you may Imag
ino tho gratification that was folt
upon unrolling tho first mummy to
find that is was tho body of Ramos
es II, tho greatest of all tho Egyptian
omporors. Among others woro his
fathor, Soti I, his grandfather, Ha
moses I, and his grandson, Rnmosos
These tombs, which aro' tho most
wondorful In all tho worliil worn
chiseled out of tho granlto mountains
in a natural amphitheater at tho ond
of a narrow gorge about four miles
from tho Nile. Somo of them nro
reached by long staircases descend
ing Into tho earth from CO to 100
feet, and then extending llko tho tun
nel of a mlno, a dlstanco of from 300
to 400 and GOOO feet, with chambers
for tho reception of presents and of
forlngs. temples for worship and
apartmonts for tho burial of tho- othor
members of tho royal families and
their favorlto servants. Othor tombs
aro reached by lncllnod planes nnd
all of thom aro cut out of tho solid
granlto and Includo chambors, shafts,
tunnels nnd crosn tunnols that must
havo Involved tho labor of thousands
of men for Bcoros of years. No such
rock work can bo found olsowhoro.
And In each of tho tombs woro his
torical and archaologlcal treasures
beyond comparison, for, as you know
whon tho Egyptians buried their dead
thoy provided thom with whatovor
thoy might need in tho othor world;
woro accustomed to worship their
kings aftor death, and bring thom
trlbuto and oblations from tlmo to
tlmo, which woro stored or placed on
oxhlbltlon In tho chambers which I
havo described.
