Mrs. BUDD, in the following letter, tells a familiar story of weakness and suffering, and thanks Mrs. Pinkham for complete relief: “DEAR MRS. PINKHAM:-I think it is
my duty to write to you and tell you
what Lydia E. Pinkham's
Compound has done for
I feel like another woman. I had such dreadful headaches through my temples and on top of my head, that I nearly went crazy;was also troubled with chills,was very weak; my left side from my shoulders to
my waist pained me terribly. I could not sleep for the pain. Plasters would help for a while, but as soon as taken off, the pain would be just as bad as ever. Doctors prescribed medicine, but it gave me no relief.
“Now I feel so well and strong, have no more headaches, and no pain in side, and it is all owing to your Compound. I cannot praise it enough. It is a wonderful medicine. I recommend it to every woman I know."
- The October list of J. B. Lippincott Co, includes an illustrated life of Franklin, “The True Benjamin Franklin,” by sidney George Fisher, uniform in character and style with the author's "The True George Washington"; “Myths and Legends Beyo id Our Borders," by Charles M. Skinner, illustrated with photogravures, and completing the legends of North America, by adding to those of the United States, contained in the author's previous books, “The Myths and Legends of Canada and Mexico"; and Mr. Skianer's “Do-Nothing Days" and “With Feet to Earth," illustrated with photogravures and sold separately or bo sed together under the name of the “Do.

- Lee & Shepard will have ready about October 1, a new Sophie May story, "Pauline Wyman," and will issue all their Q uinnebasset Series, by Sophie May, uniform with it, in a new style and at a reduced price. At the same time they will issue fifteen select novels of Amanda M Douglas, in a' new, uniform binding, at a reduced price.
“ John Hancock," His Book, announced for October 1, is a life of Hancock, made from his letter-book by Abram English Brown. It is a singular fact that no satisfactory life of John Hancock has heretofore been published, there. fore this volume will have a particular value. The letters give views of his private life, and throw light upon his position on all the politi. cal questions of his time.
– Bellows Brothers, for the last five years representatives of Ginn & Company, have recently established themselves in the Studebaker Building, Chicago, as publishers of School Charts and Specialties. They are of the opinion that school charts are not used as much as formerly because they have been too expensive and not in accord with the present and established methods of teaching. They desire to provide School Specialities that will meet with the approval of the leading educa' tors.
Their new publications consist of Superin. tendent Speer's Primary Chart of Senso Train. iog and Mathematics, a definite guide in the Speer method for the first three years, the Striker Vertical Script Rading Chart, adopted for exclusive use in Missouri, and the School Library Encyclopedia in four volumes, just adopted for the schools of Minneapolis and Los Angeles.
We call the attention of our readers to this firm's advertisement in this 188ue glving in. tormation concerning these three publications.
Foreseeing the demand for a knowledge of the Spanish language Messrs. Isaac Pitman & Sons, the enterprising publishers of New York city, are issuing in weekly parts, “ Pit. man's Practical Spanish Instructor," for begin. ners and advanced students. The Spanish text, embodying the latest and most successful method of learning Spanish will be accompanied by literal, full, or annotated transla. tions, and imitated pronunciation. This interesting work will undoubtedly enjoy a very wide popularity, as does “Pitman's Practical French and German Instructors," which are companion works to the above. A special feature of tbis Spanish work will be the con. versational exercises for Tourists and others, as well as Commerclal Terms and Business Letters. Seeing there is now a question as to the advisability of introducing Spanish into the public schools as a study this work will certainly be much sought after. This firm have also issued an adaptation of the Isaac Pitman shorthand to the Snanish language that is meeting with much favor.

-"Russia and the Slavs,” is the title of an instructive article by Prof. William Z. Ripley, in Appleton's Popular S.ience Monthly for October. The rapid growth of Russian civilization, and the prominent position which she is assuming among the modern nations, give the article a popular interest quite apart from its strictly scientific aspects.
- The German school-boy has many bless. ings provided by & paternal government.

Dr. Robert Frame, Milford, Del., tested Lorirg's Fat-ten-U and Corpula Foods and found them effectIve in many critical cages. Rrad his statement:
MILFORD, DEL., April 21, 1897. I have been in the practice of medicine nearly forty years, and have never met with a preparation that acts with such promptress and certainty as Loring's Corpula and Fat-Ten-U Foods. One patient who came under my care had had all the Doctors in the vicinity, who pronounced the case Kidney Disease and said that he could lire but a very short time, for there was no cure for him. I found the patient v ry poor and nervous; he could not sleep, could not walk, pains were excruciating. As soon as I put the patient on Corpula and Fat-Ten-U Foods he began to improve not only in strength, but also to fatten up and now entirely recovered. I have tried Fat-TenU and Corpula in Consumption and wasting diseases, a cure being made in a short time after using them. They stimulate the appetite and the digestion, promote assimilation and enter directly into the circulation. In all chronic and organic diseases, like Bright's disease, Consumption, Paralysis and Dispepsia, all diseases requiring a remedy to build up and strengthen, I prescribe Loring's Corpula and Fat-Ten-U Foods, and in all cases where a tissue builder is required. They cure nervous exhaustion. Any letters of inquiry, with stamp enclosed, will be promptly answered,
Yours sincerely, ROBERT FRAME, M. D. “As the young girl develops into the young woman she should be placed on the rock of safety," writes Esther Silliman, one of our mo t famous woman physicians. “That rock is regularity. The mother must point the way. If the daughter becomes weak and listless and takes no interest in the affairs of life, if her eyes become dulled, if she complains that her clothing weighs her down, and of excruciating pains in her stomach after meals, the mother should arouse herself to her duty or expect to see the budding woman fade and die. Millions have gone this way to the grave, and thousands have been saved from premature death by those great regulators of woman Loring's Fat-Ten-U and Corpula Foods."
