These enses. however, ro rapidly be

by bureau representatives,
The bureau of war risk insurance
which administers these affairs, has
been established bv the government
a permanent institution in recogni.
tion of the service veterans of the
wnr& war rendered their eoun'ry.

aHilo to carry as the result of this net
of an appreciative government will be
a constant reminder to them of the
part they tonk in the war; whether it
has been it matter of accomplishing a
deed of valor as performed by Ser
jeant Alvin Cullum York of Pall mall,
Tenn., or that of the newest recruit
who only underwent the discomforts of
barrack Jife, and was deprived of over
seas aerviee by the armistice.
Records in the bureau show that this

mother 'a war. More than 47 per cent of
the men wh carried government insur

Fathers wore named Iby approximate

in Frauce was 23 years.

that a largo percentage of married men

ance to be paid to their mothers, while
meir tnougnt, in arranging their com
pensation benefits, was for their wives
About 32 per cent of the men who
carried war risk iusurance named their
wives in making arrangements for
compensation. Mothers were named by
- per eent, while 'the "wife and child'
were named by 14 ver cent. This is the
natural consequence of privilege irant
ed by the war risk insurance act. Thev
reit it their first duty to provide for
the immediate needs of their family,
making, at the same time, through ap-
pueauon ior insurance, provimon for
their parents iu their advancing years.
Insurance claims which the bureau
will tie called upon to pay amount to
more than 1,0 12,000,000. "The amount
of premiums received from all service
men and which was deducted from
their pay during the active period of
the war approximates only $200,000.-
W0 or less than one fifth of tho
amount of insurance claims. The excess
abovo premiums will be paid by the
Moro than 1.200.000 men who wore
born aud raised on farms in" tho Unit

navy and marine corps during the re

possibly tell that you darkened yonr

Scores of Women
in homes, stores, offices and factories are not fit to be at work.
They toil on day after day arid year after year suffering
with distressing weaknesses and derangements, hoping against
hope that they will soon feel better, but how can they hope
to do good work or escape permanent invalidism?
Such women are in danger of derangement of women's functions. They
owe it to themselves to try that good old fashioned root and herb remedy
Lydia-. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, which for more than forty
yeai has. been restoring American Women to health and strength.
Here is a Notable Example
Joplin, Missouri. "1 took Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound to
see if it leaiiy would do as it was ad- .
vertised and it sure did, and more. I
was weak and could not do much
work, had bearing down pains and had
to go to bed. I learned about the
Vegetable Compound from my mother
and my husband told me to get it.
After taking one bottle I was able to
be on my feet most of the time and
do my work again. I have a baby
eleven months old and 1 have dene all
my own work, even the washing and
ironing since she was three weeks old.
I certainly recommend your great medi
cine to everyone who complains of
female trouble and I am more than
willing for you to use my testimonial."
Mrs. Timothy graney,
426 Connor Ave., Joplin, Mo.
Chicago, Illinois. "I suffered for four
! rears with pains in my sides, hips and
egs and a terrible backache. 1 could
not do any work at all I was treated
by many physicians but they did not
help me. I read in one of your bocks
where other women have been helped
by Lydia E, Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, so I tried it and it helped
me very much so that cow I can do
everything in the house. I have told
my friends about Vegetable Compound
and you have my permission to use litis
letter." Mrs. 1. OVENSTEIN, 902
S. MarshSeld Avenue, Chicago, 111.
