I mki wwi
Address By Prof. Bernarr Macfadden of New
York on "The Religion of Health.
Mothers' Jewels Entertained.
"The llr-llglnii or Health" was the
Mibjcct of u most Intrrostltig nntl In
Blriictlvc address rIvoii last evening In
the .lackson street Uuptlst church to a
small audience by Prof. Ucrnnrd Mac
fadden, of New York, the well-known
physical culture advocnte and editor of
"t'liyalcal Culture." Prior to the Ipc
tui'o ho gave a demonstration of his
muscular development, showing abso
lute control of the various muscles of
the body. During the course of his talk
"Unless Americans pay mote atten
tion to physical culture the race will
go clown to oblivion like many of the
ancient races. Health Is th'e foundation
principle of life, and weakness Is a
crime, and If weukness Is contagious, so
health must necessarily be also contag
ious. A person Is never too old to be
benefited by physical culture, and
health and strength should be our first
consideration to future happiness.
"Physical weakness and the need of
developing muscle and strength In the
human body Is due to negligence and
Ignorance of physical culture. This
should begin with the child at birth
and be continued all through life.
Dignity In people causes more deaths
than alcohol,- because peoplp are too
prone to run and jump for fear of some
one seeing them or ridiculing 'them.
"One of the principal evils of human
nature Is over-eating, and chronic ail
ments are more or less due to this
cause, and the over indulgence of Indi
gestive food. The use of alcohol is also
an evil, which carries with it misery
and crime. Work and activity Is abso
lutely necessary to uphold the laws of
nature and life. The body lias within
It the curative power of disease.
"Fresh air and plenty of exercise Is
essential to good health and long life,
and the cultivation of a contented
s-plrlt has a great Influence over health.
"Well ventilated' sleeping rooms, cold
water baths, fasting, and plenty of wat
,cr to drink arc necessary essentials
filso to good health and the prevention
of disease. Proper breathing is also
necessary, and the abolition of tignt
iittlng garments are requisites to
At the close of the talk. Miss Ellen
"Walsh, of New York, gave a series of
tfrcclan pnses. which were artistic and
graceful. Prof. Macfadden afterwards
answered n number of questions asked
by people in the audience in reference
to the cure and prevention of diseases
and various ailments flesh is heir to.

This is the standing of Mrs. Pinkham among tho women of America to

" Deak Mrs. Pinkham : 'Honor to whom honor is due,' and you
deservo both tho thanks and honor of tho mothers of America Avhonr
you have so blessedly helped and bcneilted. I have used Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound when I would feel run-down or
have any of the aches and pains which but few women escape, and I
have found that it relieved me at once and gave me new strength. Sev
eral ladies, members of our Literary Union, speak in highest praise of
your Vegetable Compound, as they have been cured from serious female
troubles. One lady, who thought she must submit to an operation was
cured without using anything in tho world but Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound and Sanative AVaKh. You have hosts of
friends in Chicago, and if you came to visit our city we would delight to
do you honor. Gratefully yours, Miss. May Brown, 67 Grant Place,
"How Mrs. Pinkham Helped Mrs. McKinny."
" Deat? Mrs. Pinkham : I feel it my duty to write and let yon know th
good you and your Vegetable Compound are doing. I had been sick ever since
my first baby was born, and at the birth of my second, my doctor, as well as
myself thought I should never live through it. After that menstrua
tion never came regular and when it came I suffered terribly. I also had
womb and ovarian trouble. A friend of my husband's advised him to get
Lijdia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for me. At first I had no
faith in it, but now nothing could induce me to be without it. Menstruation
has become regular and I feel like a new woman. Your medicine is a God
send to suffering women. I hope this letter will lead others' to try Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. Yours truly, Mns. Mildred
McKiNur, 28.Pearl St., San Francisco, Cal. (March 16, 1901).
