From her vast correspond­ ence with sick women during the past thirty years she may have gained the very knowledge that will help your case. Such letters as the fol­ lowing, from grateful women, es­ tablish beyond a doubt the power of LYDIA E. PINKHAM ’S VEGETABLE COMPOUND to conquer all female diseases. Mrs. Norman R. Barndt, of Allen­ town, Pa., writes: “ Ever since I was sixteen years of age I had suffered from an organic de­ rangement and female weakness; in consequence I had dreadful headaches and was extremely nervous. My physi­ cian said I must go through an opera­ tion to get well. A friend told me about Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound, and I took it and wrote you for advice, following your directions carefully, and thanks to you I am to­ day a well woman, and I am telling all my friends o f my experience.” FACTS FOR SICK WOMEN. For thirty years Lydia E. Pink­ ham’s Vegetable Compound, made from roots and herbs, has been the standard remedy for female ills, and has positively cured thousands of women who have been troubled with displacements, inflammation, ulcera­ tion, fibroid tumors, irregularities, periodic pains, backache, that bear­ ing-down feeling, flatulency, indiges­ tion, dizziness,or nervous prostration.

If you got hurt”— Louusbury threw one leg over the pommel and sat sideways for awhile, buckling and unbuckling his reins. When lie spoke it was very gently, and again he did not look at her. “ Hadn’t 3*011 better wrap up a little?” he sug­ gested. “It’s cold.” She pat a coat about Marylyn. “ It ain’t right for j’ou to make our quarrel yours. You mustn’t. I wouldn’t have 3*ou hurt on our account for anything.” Her eyes beseeched him. lie glanced at her. “ It’s worth a lot to know 3*011 feel that way,” he ^uid slowly. “ But—I’m afraid I can’t lo what you want. It’s your safety hat counts with me.” Maiylyn’s face had been hidden to sdiit out the dread sight of Matthews. Vow she lifted it; She said nothing. But as if suddenly smitten b3* a paiu- .ul thought she turned from Dallas to Lounsbury, from Louusbury to Dal­ las, questioning^*, doubtful.’ She drew lo one side a few steps and stood alone. 1 The movement escaped the others. The storekeeper had slipped from his saddle to pick up Matthews’ revolver. And the elder girl, against whom was setting in a tide of reaction, was strug­ gling for composure. She put out a trembling hand for the weapon. “Got a rifle, too, haven’t 3*ou?” he asked. “ No. Dad took it.” “Good heavens! I’m giad I didn’t know that coining down!” “ Flow’d you happen to come?” “ I saw the sleigh go by and was sure something had scared 3*our father about the claim. So I didn’t wait to black my boots.” “ Oh, it was a comfort to hear you,” she said. ♦» u of Penn 1 8 5 3 .

And it’s my fault. I knew he might come any day—that he’d make trouble. But I didn’t believe he’d get here so soon. I”— I’d given him up,” she said. “ You! You did know, then!” “ Quite awhile ago.” “ Knew what?” asked Marylyn, stop­ ping her tears. Then, certain that there was some awful secret behind It all and that it was being kept from her, she began to cry again. Dallas soothed her and explained. • “ Do you know when Matthews’ six months is 11 p?” Lounsbury inquired. “Tonight at 12.” “Tonight! Well, we’ve got to keep him off. lie may to* to establish resi­ dence in a wickiup.” “But hasn’t he a right? Can’t he”— “ lie hasn’t, and he can’t.

Rochester, N Y “ WM _ She told him. He seemed relieved. “ I’ll look that Indian up,” be said, and raised his hand to bis cap. From the road he looked around. Despite the distance he could see that the girls were where he had left them, and Marylyn’s head was once more pressed against her sister. The sight made him writhe in his saddle and wish he were as old as the river bluffs themselves, that he might go back and protect them. As be descended to the ice their two faces rose before him. One, pretty and pale, with the soft roundness of a child’s, the blue eyes filled with all a child’s terror and en­ treaty; the other, pale, too, though upon it there still lingered the brown of the summer sun, but firm of out­ line, its crown a heavy coil of braids, its center, eyes that were brave, stead­ fast, compelling. The first picture blurred in remem­ bering the second. “ God bless her!” he murmured. “To think she knew all the time and never cheeped!” At the shack Dallas, too, was ponder­ ing—over a strange contrariety. Their home was in danger, perhaps their very lives. Yet the day had fulfilled its promise of the morning—It was the happiest in her life! The ramshackle ferryboat was firm­ ly wedged in a drydock of ice on the western side of the ’ Missouri. As Lounsbury passed it, with his horse following pluckily in spreadeagle fash­ ion, he shouted for old Michael. But long before the river had flooded, when it was edging and covering only in the least swift places, the pilot had made his final crossing, run the wheezy steamer nose-on against the bank and deserted her. So the storekeeper re­ ceived no answering halloo. He was disappointed. It was desirable to em­ broil as few as possible in the Lancas­ ter dispute. Old Michael, already a factor, was needed to act the picket— to fire a warning signal if Matthews left Shanty Town. A substitute was found at the sta­ bles. The storekeeper as he rushed away after disposing of his mount came upon Lieutenant Fraser busily roacliing his own riding animal, a flighty buckskin cnyuso that no one else eared to handle and that \V&!f*aL* ipciionately known in barracks as the “she* devil.” The men had met be­ fore, around the billiard table at the sutler’strand Lounsbury had sot the 3'onng officer down for a chivalrous but rather chicken hearted youngster, who had chosen his profession unwise- 13*. So, ills stor.v told, the storekeeper was altogether surprised at Fraser’s spirited enthusiasm und quick re­ sponse. “ I’ve nothing to do, old limn,\ he said as they went toward the parade ground. “ I can help as well as not. So just take your time. I’ll wateli for 3*ou.” “ I lmrdly think our man ’ll show his nose before dark. But I can’t leave the way open”— “Don’t ” They parted at the flagpole, the West Pointer going down to the river and Lounsbury hurrying off in the oppo­ site direction. Colonel Cummings’ entry and recep­ tion rooms were crowded when the storekeeper entered. A score of offi­ cers were standing about lu little groups talking excitedly. But Louni* bury was too anxious and distraughi to notice anything unusual. He hur­ ried up to a tall, sad faced man whose mustache, thin and coarse, drooped sheer over his mouth, giving him the look of a martyred walrus. 'Can I see the K. O., Captain Oil ver?” he asked. “ It’s important.” “ I’ll find out,” answered the captain. “But I don’t believe 3*011 can. He’fi up to his ears.” Ho disappeared into the next room. % Lounsbuiy bowed #to several officers, though he scarcely saw them. He heard Oliver’s low voice, evidentl}' an­ nouncing him, then the colonel’s. “ Yes, bring him is.” cried the latter. “Maybe lie’ll know.” The storekeeper entered withoul waiting. Colonel Cummings stood In the center of the lvom. It was tho room known as his Jybraiy, in com pi l meht to fO- vo\\ of J$pg_.eared<v vciuineq that had somehow survived many a wet bivouac and rough march. But II resembled a museum. In the comers, on the walls beneath the bulky heads of buffalo aud the branching antlers of elk, there were swords, tomahawks, bowrs and arrows, strings of glass wampum, cartridge belts, Indian bon­ nets, drums and shields aud a miscel- lan37 o f warlike odds and ends. Today the room was further littered byT maps, which covered the table, the benches and the whole length of an army cot Over one of these hung the colonel, making imaginary journeys with the end of a dead cigar. He turned swiftly to Lounsbury and caught him by the shoulders. “John,” he said before the other could speak, “I need an interpreter. You’ve been about here for 3rears. Do yrou know one?” “ There’s Soggy, that Phil Kearny fellow”— The colonel gave a grunt of disgust. “ In jail at Omaha,” be said. “ Pla3*ed cards with a galoot who had some aces in his boot tops. Plugged him.” What’s the matter with y*our Rees?” That’s Just it! You see, that bunch of Sioux out there”—he jerked his head toward the stockade—“ helped in a bit of treachery two summers ago Rounded up some frieudl3r Rees at a dance and scalped ’em. So—there’9 poison for you! In this business on hand I couldn’t trust even my head scout.” He began pacing the floor. “Anywa3T, sign language, when there are terms to be made and kept, isn’t worth a bang!” I wish I could suggest a man,” said Lounsbur3\ “ Fact is, colonel, I’m ter­ ribly worried ni3*self. I came to ask you for help in some trouble”— The old soldier threw up his hands. “Trouble!” he cried. “ Why, I’m sim­ ply daft with it! Look at that!” He pointed to the farthest side of the room. It was dimly lighted. Lounsbury stepped forward and peered down - 1 then recoiled as startled as if he had happened upon something dead. On the floor was a man, a man whose back was bent rounding and whose arms and legs were hugged up againsl his abdomen and chest. Torso and limbs were alike, frightfully shrunken; the hands, mere flaw's. Lounsbury 1/ntrebfedn ‘ was uncovered, and' it was the hail that made him “goose flesh” from head to heel. It was white—not the white of old age, with glancing tints of silver or yellow, but the dead white of an agony that had withered it to the roots. Circling it and separating the scalp from the face and neck ran a narrow fringe that was still brown, as If, changing in a night, it bad lack­ ed full time for completion. Lounsbury could not take bis ey'es from the huddled shape. Colonel Cum- from the wounds on elbows and knees, were mute testimony. “ He couldn’t Bee,” continued the colonel. “He was snow blind.' They laid him out on a drift and rubbed him. The surgeon did the rest. He begged to see me. They brought him in, and he told his story. It’s an old one. You’ve heard it. But It’s always new too. This Is Frank Jamieson, a young”— As he heard his name the man stir- <« «i ti­ red, straightened his legs and let fall his arms. He looked up. “Young!” gasped Lounsbury. “Good God!” The face was aged like the hair! Jamieson struggled weakly to hi* feet, using the wall to brace him. Colonel Cummings hastened across and lent tbe support of an arm. “ No, no,” be protested. “You mustn’t talk. You’re too weak.” But Jamieson did not heed. “You an interpreter?” be asked in a rasping whisper. “You’re too weak”— “ No, I ain’t; no, I ain’t. If he’ll go with us I’m strong enough. Why, I shoveled snow on the special to Bis­ marck—that’s how they let me ride— and skating home I didn’t stop to rest”— { / “ Yes, yes; rfff boy, we tenowr-’ - “ I walked and walked—straps broke —I forgot to tell you—that’s why I had to. But it didn’t do any good—it didn’t do any good! When I got there”— As if to shut out some terrible sight he screened his eyes with one palsied hand and sank back limply into Colo­ nel Cummings’ arms. Lounsbury swept the cot clean of maps, and they laid him there. “ His father was dead,” said the com­ manding officer—“dead and naked, scalped, mutilated, full of arrows and rifle balls. The bouse and barns were burned.” # “Any women?” “Two—gone.” Jamieson put out his arms. “My mother!” he cried imploringly. “My poor little mother!” Lounsbury knelt beside him, feeling shaken and half sick. “ I f I could only ’a’ been there! But I was ’ way off at St. Paul. I knew something was wrong when the letters stopped.” ! “But 3roU must buck up, Jamieson,” said the colonel, “so you can help us.” “I will; oh, I will!” “ How’d you get down here?”- said Lounsbury. “ I didn’t eat for a long time. I was crazy. Tbe snow blinded me, and I was hungry. But I didn’t leave tbe river. I knew enough for that. They found me.” “ You think the women are alive, colonel?” asked the storekeeper. “ Undoubtedly, and with the other half of the very band we’ve got here— somewhere up in the Big Horn coun­ try.” He took a turn up and down the room. May I ask your plan?” We are in fine shape to talk terms to the captors. I’ll send a command to them, demanding the women. If the3r are not surrendered I’ll hang four of the redskins I’ve got here— Lame Foot, the medicine man, and Chiefs Standing Buffalo, Canada John and Shoot-at-the-Tree—all ringleaders. Then the rest of the band will be put on a reservation. If the Jamieson wo­ men are alive and they send ’em In I won’t hang the chiefs.” “ When ’ll the command start?” “Three hours after we get an inter­ preter. I’ve sent word up to Custer at But the delav! T fii^k tt- it well, he’s Luunaljuru stepped tor ward und peered down, miugs paused beside him. “This morn­ ing,” he said, speaking in an under­ tone, “a sentry signaled from beyond the barracks.

He was utterly worn out and was crawling forward .. Ula -u.nr-io Ull L sleeves an 1 trouse . .... slained darker mean^ to those 'women!' “ It was about two women that I wished to speak,” said Lounsbury. He felt apologetic, however, the one dan­ ger was so trifling beside the other. Colonel Cummings listened. “Those girls had better come here,” he said as the storekeeper finished. “Then they’d be safe enough. I remember seeing one of ’em the day we got back. She was a fine looking young woman.” “There are twro arguments against their coming, sir. For legal reasons it’s best they should not vacate the shack or leave the claim.” “ I see.” And, again, the father Is rather sore about the war.” “You don’t say!” “So, if you could give me a couple of men to take my place now and then during the night—the situation is tem­ p o r a l , you see, the father ’ll be back in a few days.” “There are very strong reasons against my acting In the matter. I’m here to keep an e3*e on the Indians. The settlers are expected to go to the civil authorities when they have quar­ rels. Now, I’d like to mix up with Shanty Town, for instance. Our guard- room is jammed with men who’ve been drugged over there with v II g whisky. Yet I can’t I can only pun­ ish my men.” “ I know that’s so.” “ Of course I shan’t see defenseless women suffer”— Lounsbury was piqued. “ Not alto­ gether defenseless, colonel. But I can’t stay at the shack” — “True, true. Why not ask Mrs. Mar­ tin, Major Appleton’s sister, to go over? Then you might guard from the barn, ff they have one.” “That’s a splendid suggestion, sir. It would solve the difficulty.” “ I’d be glad to speak to Mrs. Martin about it.” He thought a moment, pass­ ing a hand over his clean shaven face. “You’d have to be relieved even then, John, I should think.\ “ Not at all.” # “ But >fou might. In that case”— He drew Lounsbury close and spoke with his lips In the storekeeper’s ear. “ But you understand,” he said aloud as he concluded, “that I know nothing about it. If I hear of It I shall be ver^ dis- nlcngfv for the coulee mouth, so’s to sneak up to the Lancasters' from behind.” They charged away across the mile of ice. “ If it’s Matthews why didn’t he wing me as I went by?” panted Lounsbury. “ Look, look!” cried Fraser. “Now, he’s moving!” They stopped to loosen their revolv­ ers, after which they started again, cautiously. The tops of the willows were shak­ ing. Presently they spread outward, and the “ black bunch” lengthened. Then it emerged and was resolved into a blanketed Indian. “Charley!” exclaimed the officer. As he spoke the outcast, shouldering a bundle of sticks, began to climb the cut. The two men looked at each other and burst into a laugh. “ Fraser,” said Lounsbury, “did you ever hear of the fellow that stalked a deer all day and then found it was a speck on his glasses?” “That’s one on me,” admitted the lieutenant sheepishly. “I knew nobody had come out of that door—but you see we were in the stable awhile.” “ ‘Charley’—that squaw Indian they told mo about, eh? Pretty good to them.’” r- - V - ----- i — > i “ Yes. From what I understand they’re pretty good to him.” They followed leisurely and took up a stand In the cottonwoods above the landing to discuss the situation. At the very outset Lounsbury determined not to speak of the plan that included Mrs. Martin’s aid, the rebuff he had Buffered from the section boss having decided him against it. “ By George,” he said regretfully, “i wish when I had Matthews covered that I’d just marched him up the cou­ lee and on 10 Clark’s!” “ Good ide^. Too bad you didn’t.” .“ But I’ll tell you this: I’m not going to stay out here all night just to shoo him off. I’ve a good mind to happen In down there, sort him out and do the marching act anyhow.” “ Now, look here,” reminded Fraser, “that wouldn’t do. You don’t want to kill Matthews, and you don’t want to be killed. It ’d he one or the other if you poked 3*our nose in there.” “What do you advise?” “ Lie low till you see a good oppor­ tunity. I think the chap’ll come out.” “ But suppose he doesn’t?” . “ You’ll have to stay here, that’s all. I’ll divide the watch with 3*ou.” “Oh, I don’t like to ask 3rou to do that, old man. We ought to he able to think up some kind of a scheme.” The sun was fast declining. Soon it disappeared behind the river bluffs, when the boom of the evening gun swelled the last note of “ retreat.” Fraser sighed.

The dog is no doubt the most intelli­ gent of our domestic animals, and 1 yield to none in my affection for him. I can almost eat and sleep with a fino dog winter and summer. But I try noi to deceive myself about his intelli­ gence. It seems to me that If the dog had the least spark of wit akin to our own—that is, power of reason—his long association with man would have fanned it into a flame, however small. But after all these thousands ol years of human companionship and love he has less wit in some respects than his wild brothers, the fox and the wolf. Having been spared the struggle to live that falls to their lot, his cuuuiug and sagacity have deterio rated. The same is true of the horse, which has less intelligence than the wild stallion of the plains and for the same reason. These animals do not grow wiser as they grow less wild. They do not civi­ lize or develop. We train them Into certain ways that make them service­ able to us; we humanize them withoul adding to their mental capacity.
