Astoria, N. Y. " For two year I
was feeling ill and took all kinds of
tomes. l was gei
ingworse every day.
I had cniiis,my neaa
would ache. I was
always tired. I could
not walk straight
because of the pain
in myback and I bad
pains in my stom
ach. I went to a
doctor and be said I
must go under an
operation, but 1 did
not go. I read in
the taper about
Lydla E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound and told my husband about it. I
said ' I know nothing will help me but I
will try this.' I found myself improv
ing front the very first bottle, and in two
weeks time I waa able to sit down and
eat a hearty breakfast with my hus
band, which I had not done for two years.
I am now in the best of health and
did not have the operation." Mrs.
John A. Koenig, 602 Flushing Avenue,
Astoria, N. Y.
Every one dreads the surgeon's knife
and the operating table. Sometimes
nothing else will do ; but many times
doctors say they are necessary when
they are not Letter after letter comes
to the Pinkham Laboratory, telling how
operations were advised and were not
performed: or, if performed.did no good,
but LydiaE.Pinkham's Vegetable Com
poundwas used and good health followed.

Buenos. Ayres, Aug. 7. Long term
contracts were closed here today by
which the United Press service is ex
tended to South America, with principal
headquarters in the office of La Nacion,
Mouth America's greatest newspaper.
Coincidentully the Central and South
American Cable company has reduced
the press rate between New York and
South American cities from 22 cents to
lii vents per word.
This deal, which establishes the first
comprehensive news Bervice between the
two continents, was closed by Koy W.
Howard, of New York, president of
the United Press, and Jorge Mitre, pub
lisher of La Nacion. Charles P. Stewart,
formerly European manager of the Uni
ted Press, will be in general charge of
the South American service.
It is believed here that the closing
of these contracts marks a new epoch
in the -development of social and com
mercial relations between North and
South America. Heretofore the princi
pal newspapers of South America have
received their foreign news from Euro
The United Press now will cover the
world for South American papers. On
account of cable transmission condi
tions, much of the service will be filed
direct from the London, Berlin, Paris
and Borne bureaus of the United Press
but a' large part of the transmission will
be handled through New York.
