It is to these faithful women that LYDIAE-PINKHAtVI'S VEGETABLE COMPOUND comes as a boon and a blessing, as it did to Mrs. F. Ellsworth, of Mayville, N. Y., and to Mrs. W. P. Boyd, of Beaver Falls, Pa., who say: " I was not able to do my own work, owing to the female trouble from which I suffered. Lydia E. Pinkham's VegetableCompound helped me wonderfully, and I am so well that I can do as big a day's work as I ever did. I wish every sick woman would try it. FACTS FOR SICK WOMEN.

A LAND AFAR. There's ti land of which we often dream In the hush of the twilight hours; But afnr o'er ninny an ocean stream Are its kappy vales and bowers. Its singing birds are a merry crew, And their sours are sweet and clear j No shadows darken its skies of blue, And no winter is in its year. Oh, happy it were to wander there, Where the fadeless roses blow ; Where the lilies sway in the scented air In their robes as white as snow : Where no ruthless breeze strips the full' leaved trees In wood or in vale or grove : Where the sunbeams play on the silvery seas That are calm as t!he skies above! But, ah me! no crafts are anchored In its harbors safe and wide ; In its meadows broad, with verdure spread, But the misty phantoms glide. For that land afar o'er the trackless main. Where the boughs are ever green, That our storm-tossed barques may seek in vain. Is the Land of Might-IInve-Been. "Joor little soul," said the surgeon, "she left it too late, you know, and we could not do anythi...
