TO CORRESPONDENTS The Seml-Weeltfy journal's appeal, made a few weeks ago for more news from country correspondents, had a noticeable effect as we imme d iately received a number of mcst interesting letters.

We regard the letters from tour country correspondents as one of the means the Journal has of being of service to the section of country through which it circulates, These letters bring the people closer to gether and tend to the development of a community interest which is most helpful. You help your own community and by suggestion help other communities by sending us the news as it transpires in ycur neigh borhood. us hear from you ! President-elect Wilson announces that he will hold no more "confer ences". He has probably found out that it is possible to do a lot of con ferring without getting anywhere. On the subject of cabinet positions, Governor Wilson states that he is "trying" to keep his mind open. That sounds as if he leans so strongly to certain possibilities that it is an undertaking for him to consider other possibilities. It is pretty hard to understand those English suffragettes, but the trouble with them may be that they are crazy. As a general thing folks don't lose their minds in groups, but such a thing is of course not impos sible. General Sickles may have been a good soldier, But in the opinion of the Attorney General of New York State that does not excuse him for making way with the funds of the Monument Commission and that sepms to be the logic ot the situation. The ahti-tipping bill if it becomes law (it has passed the House but not the Senate) will be a saving to a few people and that is about all that can be said for it. It probably resulted In part from somebody's desire to have a law connected with nis name. Secrecy about fees paid to officials makes the people suspicious of over pay, says the Wilmington Star. It is an unfailing sign to the people if they would stop to think. How it is that communities will in these times of enlightenment continue to stick to the fee-system of remunerating their public officials is a mystery. The next Senate will be Demo cratic by a very close margin. With four contests to be determined, there are now forty-nine DenjMrats ready to take their seat as meMters of the body. Counting the Vice-President, this will give them a majority of two. Of the forty -nine a considerable num ber will stand for protection, but there will probably be a sufficient m umber of low tariff Republicans to offset Democratic defections, so that sub stantial reductions in tariff rates are as certain a anything in the future can be. Rocky Mount appears a little top lofty In its baseball ideas. Perhaps thatjsiwn is planning to break into one of the major leagues.

Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. Worth mountains of gold," says one woman. Another says, "I would not give Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for all the other medicines for women in the world " Still another writes, " I should like to have the merits of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound thrown on the sky with a searchlight so that all suffering women could read and be convinced that there is a remedy for their ills." We could fill a newspaper ten times the size of this with such quo tations taken from the letters we have received from grateful women whose health has been restored and suffering banished by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. Why has Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound accomplished such a universal success? Why has it lived and thrived and kept on doing its glorious work among the sick women of the world for more than 30 years ? Simply and surely because fit its sterling worth? The reason no other medicine has ever approached its success is plainly and sim ply because there is no other medicine so good for women's ills. Here are two letters that just came to the writer's desk only two of thousands, but both tell a comforting story to every suffering wo man who will read them and be guided by them. FROM MRS. D. H. BROWN. Iola, Kansas. "During thcChange of Life I was ick for two years. Be fore I took your medicine I could not bear the weight of my clothes and was bloated very badly. I doc tored with three doctors but they did me no good. They said nature must have its way. My sister ad vised me to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and I purchased a bottle. Before it was gone the bloating left me and I was not so sore. I continued taking it until I had taken 12 bottles. Now I am stronger than I have been for years and can do all my work, even the washing. Your medicine is worth its weight in gold. I cannot praise it enough. If more women would take your medicine there would be more healthy women. Yon may use this letter for the good of others." Mrs. D. H. Bbown, 809 North Walnut Street, Iola, Kan. Write to LYDIA E.PIKKHAM (CONFIDENTIAL) LYNN, Your let letter will be opened, read by a woman and beld in strict THE THREATENED EUROPEAN WAR. By cable to the New York Times from London comes the text of a part of an editorial published by the London Times on the Balkan War and the greater conflict which the diffic culties between Turkey and the Allies threaten to bring on. The editorial is regarded as one of the most powerful appeals for peace ever printed in a newspaper and is being widely copied in Europe, partly, no doubt, because of its intrinsic mer it as a compelling editorial utterance and partly because of its possible effect iu reducing the danger of a general European war. The portions of the editorial printed in the New York Times are: " 'Is ther uo means of avoiding war?' The question is being asked with some bewilderment by millions of men in this country who want to know what difficulties there are in the pres ent situation which should threaten Europe with a general war. "There are no irresistible waves of popular reeling, no gusts ot angry passion, such as sweep whole peoples into war before thev are well aware of ii-li it t m.- -i ro ilin'nir I llir. I Q nr irri-il , ...u:u j.... .u. nation in Europe which to-day has the least desire that millions of men should he torn from their homes and flung headlong to destruction at the bidding of vain ambitions. "In England men will learn with amazement arid incredulity that war is possible over the question of a Ser vian port, or even over the larger issues which are said to lie behind it Yet that is whither the nations are blindly drifting. Who, then, makes war? "The answer is to be found in the Chancelleries of Europe, among the men who have too long played with human lives as pawns in a game of chess, who have become so enmeshed in formulas and the jargon of diplo macy that they have ceased to be conscious of the poignant realities with which they trifle. "And thus will war continue to be made uutil the great masses who are the sport of professional schemers and dreamers say the word which shall bring not eternal peace, for that is im: possible, but a dertermination that wars shall be fought only in a just and righteous and vital cause." The Times' would have done ifs readers a great service if it had secured the whole of this great editorial from its London namesake Another thought that is suggested on reading the portions of the editorial that have been printed in this country is that this great London newspaper "The Thunderer" as it is often referred to takes a different view of govern ment from' that entertained by the Texas Senator who some time ago went into political seclusion. Senator Bailey argued that the peo ple should allow a few men of learning and special equipment to manage their affairs for them. The Times shows where such a policy leads . It leads to conditions such as described by the London paper as existing in Europe where human beings are pawns hi a game played by "experts" the type of men who, according to Senator Bailey .should he entructed with the control of affairs. Indeed, it rather looks as if what Europe need at this time is the initia- MRS. WILLIAMS SAYSt Elkhart, Ind.
