Indies' Night at the Club.
Ping-pong poles Into Insignificance
when the ladles try to bowl, nnd In con
sequence the popular parlor game was
side-tracked last evening at the Elec
tric City Wheelmen's social, which was
tendered the lady friends ot the club.
The remodelled tenpln alleys had an
unusual attraction for the fair sex, and
as a result nearly three hours wero
consumed In lecordlng strikes, spates,
breaks and misses principally misses
which were made by the club guests.
Teams of flvo each rolled five-frame
games, and some unusually "striking"
plays were made, but In the majority
of cases the balls "sp.ned" the pins In
their flight down the alleys, and rolled
Into the gutters. Two of the ladles,
however, succeeded In scoring "strikes,"
and one made a "spaie," and the high
est score made was 42 for flc frames,
an average of a little more than S
points per fiamc.
It would be impolite to mention any
particular players, as the others may
feel offended, suffice to say that all en
joyed the sport Immensely, and uic
anxious for another try at the game.
Fifteen ball pool was also played by a
few, but this game was considered
tame as compared to bowling. Cards,
dominoes and other features wcic In
troduced duiing the evening.
Cieam nnd cake was served at 11
o'clock, and then followed a number ot
lound and square dances, with piano
accompaniment by Miss Kate Iteardon.

'"Dear Mrs. Pin-kiiam: I wns in nn awful state for nearly three
years with a complication of female troubles which three physicians
called by different names, but the pains were all the same. I dreaded
the times of my monthly periods for it meant a couple of days in bed in
awful agony. I finally mado up my mind that the good doctors were
guessing; and hearing from different friends such good reports of
Lydia 13. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound, T tried that. I bless the
day I did, for it was tho dawning of a new life for me. I used five
bottles before I was cured, but when they were taken I was a well wo
man once more. Your Compound is certainly wonderful. Several of
my friends have used it since, and nothing but the best do I ever hear
from its n.se. Yours, Mabelle L. LaMonte, 222 E. Hist St., Chicago, 111."
If Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound will euro Miss
LaMonte why not you? You cannot tell until you try it. If
you are ill, and really want to get well, commence Its use nt once,
nnd do not let any drug clerk persuade- you that ho has something
of his own which is better, for that is absurd. Ask him to pro
duce tho evidence wo do.
Women who are troubled with painful or irregular menstruation, back
ache, bloating (or flatulonce), leti"orrhcea, falling, inflammation or ulceration
of the uterus, ovarian troubles, that bearing-down feeling, dizziness, faint

action to ward off tho serious consequences, and be restored to perfect health
and strength by taking Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound,
and then write to Mrs. Finlcham, Lynn, Mass., for further free advice. No
