Thoie Is another lady whose bad
times began about Christmas and at
last accounts she had not been nblo
to break tho combination. In the first
place, Jmt before Christmas the maid
of-nli-work went homo very uncere
moniously to a sick mother or njine
other nllllctlon. The house mistress
recalled the sentiment entered by one
of Scranton's new-comers, who stated
with authority that "no real ladyi ever
does her own work," and a half
amused conjecture illtted over her
troubled mind whether she might not
temporarily wear a placard stating
"I am a real lady, I can prove tho
assertion by Jive different arguments."
when callers came unexpectedly, for
its hard to be mistress and maid at
one and the same time.
So with Christmas shopping and
needlewoik uncompleted, she donned
a big apron and went into the kitchen.
About that time along came tho
dressmaker with the calm announce
ment that owing to some chances In
her dates she could give her a few
days then or not at all. So tne ladv
hied herself down town for the neces
sary adjuncts to tho conversion of an
old frock Into a beautiful up-to-date
confection, nnd of course not a thing
would match, buL a certain velvet rib
bon with a wildly extravagant pi Ice
attached. Finally In desperation she
was compelled to buy It or have no
new dress, and of course it necessitat
ed the purchase of miles and miles ot

ChrlstmaH shoppers were bcver.il
deep and us my lady hastened across
the street after the ruinous expendi
ture of funds for that velvet ribbon,
she was Jostled by the crowd and u
moment later found that the inse
curely fastened parcel had allowed Ith
contents to es-cape and the oxtravug.int
velvet was missing. Search, question
ing and advertisements, proved equally
vain. The velvet was gone and the
discouraged lo&er had to content her
self with an Inferior trimming which
she will forever loathe, together with
tho gown which It made a pretense of
That was only the beginning of her
woes. They followed In swift und dls
pliltlng succession. Amid nil of theo
a clear little spot of sunshine beamed.
It was the conviction that among her
gifts would be at least one thing which
wus exactly what she wanted and most
needed, nnd from a rolutlve who had
plainly asked for suggestions as to
what she would like. It was to be a
new gown a Mlk of daik quiet hue
and durable qualities. Tills wa a
beautiful thought and It sustained the
small affected community of that
household In many a doleful hour.
Christmas morning came. Truly
enough there was the large Hat parcel,
with sumptuous possibilities In Its
very correctness of corners. The re
cipient cut the cords with pleased im
patience. She ghve one swift look at
the contents and then Hung it far
acioss the loom and pieclpltately
went Into a heap and began to cry. On
the other side of the parlor swelling
blllowsofbllic and gold glittered In the
pale sun. "It will bo lovely tor a

nnd then oho laughed with Immoder

misery of over strained nerves.
She Is a Httlo lady, whose frocks nre J

were covered by un Immense sprawl

have hidden the bodice of its owner
from shoulder to shoulder.. The col

fought madly for supremacy. Its tex

BEST IN ALL THE WORLD !
Paine's Celery Compound the Product of Brains and
After Years of 5tudy and Application, This Greatest of AH Remedies Was
Given to Mankind by the Ablest of Modern Physicians The Host
of Worthless Imitators That Followed It.
When the greatest of modern physi
cians, after yeats of practice and
close, scientific study, gave to tho sci
ence of medicine the most wonderful
remedy of the present day, a host of
linltatois sprung up.
No sooner was It announced that a
positive cure for nervous ailments, an
unfailing blood purifier, hud been dis
covered by Prof. Phelps, of Dart
mouth, and physicians everywhere
welcomed Paine's celery compound us
the moht-to-be-deslred discovery of a
time when modern ways of working
nnd living had begun to multiply dis
eases that arise fiom Impulred nerves
und Impure blood
When a great public demand arojie
for this remedy from one end of the
country to another, at once, as In
every such case, a lot of cheap fel
lows begnn to try to Impose upon
people one and another tiade medi
cine, sometimes harmful, always
worthless, claiming lor them the un
exampled properties of Paine's celery
Naturally, none of them ever sio
ceeded. None of them ever will.
Paine's celery compound made peo
Tho aged and Infirm found In It new
ami lasting strength. Thousands of
women and men, tired out, run down,
despondent, sick, suffering with in
somnia, rheumatism, diseases of the
kidneys, regained" their health, and
strength, and buoyancy by tho well
advised use of Paine's celery com
pound. As a great leader and writer
In Boston publicly declared one day,
Paine's celery compound hud proven
Itself to be ns much better than ull
the ordinary nervines, sarsuparlllas,
and trade preparations as the diamond
Is brighter than ordinary glass.
Fiom thousands of grateful persons
uusoljcited testimonials began to pour
In from those whom Paine's celery
tompound had benefited. The wealthy
and the poor, the famous und the
comparatively unknown, sent to the
proprietors of the temedy, to the news
papers, to their physicians, to their
friends, the glad news that here at
last they had found a remedy that
mado them themselves again!
And the foolish fellows with their
silly nostrums, stinting up hero and
there every year, discovered us often
ns they tiled It that, when a person's
health is at stake, he or sho will not
bo Imposed upon. Paine's celery com
pound was In greater demand last year
than the year before; the demand this
spring Is greater than for all the so
called spring icmedles combined. Peo
ple Insist upon having the one rem
edy that docs them good, makes them
strong, repairs their shattered
strength. They call for Paine's celery
Tho story of the Ufework of this
great physician has been often told,
and Is familiar to most readers.
Prof. Phelps was born in Connecti
cut, and graduated from the military
school at Norwich, Vt. He studied
medicine with Prof. Nathan Smith, of
New Haven, Conn., and graduated In
medicine at Yule,
His unusual tnlent soon brought him
reputation and piomlnenee. First he
was elected to the professorship of
anatomy and surgery In the Veimont
university. Next he was appointed
lecturer on mateila medico, and med
ical botany in Dartmouth college. The
next year he was chosen professor of
tho chair then vacated by Prof. Hobby,
and occupied the chair, the most Im
portant one In the country, at the
tlmo when he first formulated his
most remarkable prescription.
Today Paine's celery compound
stands without an equal for feeding
exhausted nerves and building up the
strength of the body. It cuies radical
ly nnd permanently. The neivoiw
prostration and general debility from
which thousands of women suffer so
long that It finally gets to oo a sec
ond nature with them .ill this suffer
ing and despondency cun he veiy soon
removed by properly feeding Un
nerves and replacing the unhealthy
blood by a fresher, more highly vital
ized lluld. A healthy lucieanc In ap
petite nnd a corresponding gain In
weight nnd good spirits follow th
use of Paine's celery compound.
Palno's celery compound is the most
remarkablo medical achievement of;
the last fifty years.
It makes people well. It Is tho ono
tiue specific recognised and prescribed
today by eminent practitioners for dis
eases uilslng from a debilitated ner
vous Bysttfw. Prof. Phelps gave to
his profession a positive cure for sleep
lessness, wustlng strength, dyspepsia,
biliousness, liver complaint, neuralgia,
theumutlsm, all nervous diseases and
kidney troubles. For nil such com
plaints Paine's celery compound has
succeeded agu' and again whens
everything else 1ms failed.
It Is as haimless as It Is good, and
It was the universal advice of the
medical profession that the compound
be placed whete the general public
could secure It, and thousands ot
people have year after year proven
tho wisdom of this good ndvice.
Only a truly great und effective lem
edy could continue, as Paine's celery
compound has done, to hold Its unri
valled place In the estiinutloti of the
ablest physicians and of the thous
ands of btiby men und women whose
only means of judging Is from the ac
tual results In their own home or
among their friends, No remedy
was ever so highly recommended,1
