Well Qualified, Cores RhentnAtlsm, Kidney, Bladder, Blood, Skin nnd Nervous Discuses— Hotel Hag Been Erected and People Are Journeying ff There from All Over the Country to Rathe in the Kind. -;* 'A deposit of most remarkable mud discovered in Indiana, has of recent years been attracting wide-spread attention. It is located at the Indiana Mineral Springs, Warren county, and has been formed by the action of the •water from the famous Magno-Lithia springs. Through countless ages the foliage of magnificent oaks on the hillside has annually fallen into a basin, and has been reduced by nature into a pure black earth unmixed with roots, stones or sand. The water from the big spring for thousands of years has been soaking this deposit and saturating it with mineral salts, until now there is a layer of medicated mud abcut two acres in extent and from ten to twenty feet in thickness. The strange medicinal value of this pfculiar, black, porous substance was accidentally discovered by an old soldier, Sam Story, who had brought rheumatism home from the war and suffered with it for years. He was attempting to dig a drainage ditch through the mud deposit, and after indulging in this useless experiment for a week or more, gave up the idea, but meanwhile had been cured of his rheu- ni;itiKin. The fame of the mud began to spread and afflicted congregated at the Springs from everywhere. The method of using the mud was at first very primitive, the patient merely sitting down in the deposit where nature had laid it. But since then improvements have been made, a beautiful hotel erected, and the mud bath developed into a luxurious experience. The accompanying cut shows how it's done.

When, after repeat ed doses, the bearings nppenr to b clean they should be carefully reoile< with some suitable oil and will, o course, be found much better for th operation. The wheels of a bicycle if the bearings are properly adjusted should spin freely and stop gradually with a rocking movement, yet have no side play. To test a wheel after adjusting, spin smartly* letting it run itself out, when the weight of the valve should stop the last almost complete revolution and cause the wheel to swing backward and forward until it stops with the valve at the bottom. Should it stop in any other position then there is a tight place in the bearing which should be loosened slightly to allow the balls to pass, otherwise one may 1am and break. asily avoidable by the use of one The strain of back-pedaling is so severe that any imperfection which survives the "factory inspection" of the ;atalognes is liable to result in a sere-re accident.

Invented in Vienna, a valuable contrivance for the army. It is easily changed from a bicycle into a pushcart on two wheels and used as (i stretcher for wounded soldiers. Tests have been made for the new vehicle in the military hospitals as well as on the field, and it is acknowledged to be a great help to the ambulance service in the field. The secret of the invention is in the frame, which can be folded to form a wheelbarrow or pushcart. The equipment of the vehicle comprises a stretcher, a case of Instruments fastened to the handlebar, and the usual repair kit. Punclurcless ires are used, so that no drawback are counted upon in this direction. One man ran handle the machine, whereas the ordinary stretcher requires two. There nre other uses tc which this new vehicle can be put. not the least to be considered in times of need being that, of a pushcart. II Is predicted that it will stand the practical tests soon to be made at the annual drills of the army, after whlcH Its popularity and usefulness will ue established. .

We expressed the opinion five years ago that other makers would fully realize their error iu endeavoring to maintain a fictitious value on their product, and that the prices we had flxed on Crescents would become tbe standard price for other high grade wheels. "One of the secrets of the success of tno Western Wheel Works is, that we not only guarantee our wheels, but we guarantee our pr.ces as well, and the purchaser of a Crescent in Febrvary has the fatissac- tion of knowing that his neighbor who purchased a Crescent in July paid tuo name price as he did.

You did not know that that heat, swelling and ten* derness in your left side were all signs of congestion of the ovary. Any intelligent woman could hove told you that congestion is fatal to the uterine system, and that an ovary | congested leadal to tumor] formation, and that you were in awful _ danger. Now( w ) you will have to undergo the operation of ovariotomy, the cutting out of the ovary. Yes, you will recover, at least I hope you will; but you will never be quite the same woman again. Congestion of the ovaries is fatal to health. If you have any such symptoms be advised in time j tolce a medicine of DI-. oiuc powers! You can find none bettet than Lydin E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, prepared especially to meet the needs of woman's sexual system. You can get it at nny good druggist's. Following we publish a letter from a woman in Milwaukee, which relates how she was cured of ovarian trouble: " Dear Mrs. Pinkham:—I suffered with congestion of the ovaries and inflammation of the womb. I had been troubled with suppressed and painful menstruation from a girl. The doctors told me the ovaries would have to be removed. I took treatment two years to escape an operation, but still remained in miserable health in both body and mind, expecting to part with my reason each coming month. Af tea- using one bottle of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and a package of Sanative Wash I was very much relieved. I. continued to use your remedies until cured. The last nine months have been passed in perfect pood health. This, I know, I owe entirely to the Vegetable Compound.

The inefficiency of back-pedaling a a substitute for a brake was again illustrated in an accident which befell John Grieb, a Baltimore rider, on Sunday afternoon. He was riding down Rush Hill, which is one of the steepest hills iu the vicinity of Baltimore, and in his effprts to keep his wheel under control l>y back-pedaling the left pedal of his bicycle broke. He was consequently thrown violently to the road and was seriously injured.

As she sprang from her machine at the end of the run she declared she was able to caver another :ialf century. She had ridden during .he day a total of 109 miles. Miss Jacobus is very modest with regard to her many century runs and declares that she rides for pleasure and not as the rival of any person. Notes of Sports.
