Then I was very weak; my back ached all the time. My physicians said I would be all right after the birth of the 'child, but I was not, although at that time I had the best of care. The pains in my back were almost ira- bearable. I had leucorrhcea, in its worst form; menstruations were painful. "Any work or care would entirely unnerve me. When my babe was 11 months old, friends persuaded me to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. Before I had taken one bottle I felt the effects. My back did not ache so badly, and I felt stronger. After taking four bottles I felt well. My ambition returned, menstruations were painless, leucorrhcea entirely cured, and I could take care of my Labe and do my housework. I shall always recommend your Vegetable Compound for all women, especially for young mothers."—Mits. 11. L. QOOLD, Oregon, AVis.

About the ago, so the superintendent :eils a reporter, application was made to him by one of the employes tor a "day off" to go to a funeral. A ferattd* mother was dead, The request Was granted. During the same week an» other girl asked leave to stay away to attend the funeral of a cousin. This was granted also. Following these requests came a most alarming mortality among the relatives of the em- ployes. In twelve weeks the seven* teen girls had been off thirty-six times to attend funerals. Sometimes it Was an uncle, sometimes an aunt, and again a grandfather. The original applicant appeared to suffer the most frequent bereavement. She had been away four times in four weeks to go to a funeral. When she made her fifth request the manager called her into his office. "Do you expect to get married soon?" he asked. "Well, I don't know," replied the girl, opening her big black eyes in surprise. "Why do you ask, Mr. Brown?" "1 suppose," replied the superintendent, ignoring the question for a moment, "that In case you do marry you hope to have children?" "Well, I hadn't thought of that," was the young woman's response, "but I suppose 1 would like to have children of my own. Certainly." "I am glad to hear It," said Mr. Bi'own. "Please tell me what you mean," asked- the necktiemaker. "I don't understand you." "1 simply thought," said the fat superintendent, as he took the payroll book from its shelf, "that your family was in danger of becoming extinct. Here you have burled your uncle, your aunt, your cousin, your grandfather, and now you are going to your sister's funeral. There won't be any of .you left pretty soon." The young woman reddened and after a painful pause she said she would withdraw her application for time off. Then the superintendent went into the general workroom. "Young ladies," he said, "I regret to be obliged to announce that hereafter I shall be obliged to limit each of you to two funerals a month. I am sorry to do this but if this epidemic keeps up I shall expect that you will fall victims yourselves. Your families are dropping off so rapidly that I 'cannot look for any other result. Do you catch the drift of my remarks?" There was a-deep silence for a moment and then a giggle. Mr. Brown went back to his books. There hasn't been a death since he spoke—a month ago. wit, HUMdi?

The Sou of the Baronet Was a Highwayman. A gentleman had been staying on a visit with a certain baronet, and when leaving behaved very liberally to the domestics, having distributed among them a more than usual amount of money, says the Strand Magazine. He was to proceed on his journey alone on horseback, and just as he was putting his foot in the stirrup to start, the groom who assisted him and had been a sharer in 1 hi's bounty contrived to approach him closely and whisper, unperceived, this startling warning in his ear: "See if your pistols be loaded as soon as you are beyond the domain," The gentleman, while riding on, forthwith did so, and to his astonishment found that the charges had been withdrawn. He at once reloaded the weapons, placing a bullet in each. By nighttime he reached Wortham heath and on coming* upon It he was stopped by a masked and mounted highwayman, who rode up to him fearlessly and leveled a pistol at his head, Intimating that he must have his money. The gentleman fired instantly in self-defense, and his assailant fell dead. To gallop to the nearest habitation and give the alarm was the work of a few minutes on the part of the traveler, He re* turned within an hour with men* and lights to the spot, when, p»> taking the mask from the bleeding corpse of the highwayman, he to his horror disco V" ered, him to be no other than the son of the baronet whose hospitality he had so recently been enjoying. This son had, of course, been one of his friendly and social companions during hie stay.

"Improved? Well, I should say so. I can hit the bull's eye at 200 yards more times than any other man in the company." "That's splendid. I wish I could see you do it. But, of course, you wouldn't want me following you around everywhere." "Perhaps it wouldn't be best." "I'll tell you what you might do, though." "What is it?" "You might come home early tomorrow afternoon and let me see how many times in succession you can hit the head of a carpet tack with the hammer.
