Transmlssibllity of Qenius.
The sale of rellca of Robert and
Elisabeth - Browning by executors of
the eatate of their aon, the late Ifpbert
Weldemann Barrett Browning, which
began May 1, again call* attention to
the fact that the child of a union
ao richly dowered, from the literary
and artistic standpoint, failed to ahow
trace# of the genius of either parent
He was an artlat, but did nothing ex
traordinary. It would almost aeem
that genius not only has a way of
sometimes consuming its possessor
but also of consuming Itself, as far
as the immediate offering are con
cerned. At any rate, the evidence as
to its transmlssibllity is still lacking,
although, of course, there are plenty
of facts to Justify a belief aa to the
transmlssibllity of special talents.

HER "BEST FRIEND"
A Woman Thus Speaks of Postum.
We usually consider our best friends
those who treat us best.
Some persons think coffee a real
friend, but watch it carefully awhile
and observe that It is on* of thh
meanest of all enemiea, for it stabs
one while professing friendship.
Coffee contains a poisonous drug
caffeine—which injures the delicate
nervous system and frequently sets
up disease in one or more organs of
the body, if ita use is persisted in.
"I had heart palpitation and nerv
ousness for four yesrs and th« doctor
told me the trouble was caused by
coffee. He advised me to leave It off,
but I thought I could not," writes a
"On the sdvlee of a friend I tried

to use Postum my weight increased

trouble left me. I have used it a year
now and am stronger than I ever was.

practically every Interest was repre
sented, manufacturers, merchants,
Jobbers, farmers and professional men
being present to Join in the great con
certed crusade that has for its sole
and single purpose the elimination of
the present excessive and discrimlna
tory freight rates, which Attorney
General Thomas W. Blckett declared
had placed an embargo and commer
cial quarantine upon the development
of North Carolina for all these years.
"Therefore, be It reeolved," read
the resolution brought in by the com
mittee of which Mr. W. C. Dowd of
Charlotte was chairman and which
summed up the work of the meet
ings, "that this meeting does hereby
request the Honorable Governor of
North Carolina to call a special ses
sion of the legislature to meet in
Raleigh as soon as, in his Judgment,
It is wise to do so, for the purpose
of receiving a report from the said
special committee; and be It alao re
solved that this body pledges its sup
port and encouragement to the Gov
ernor «tnd the legislature In such
efforts as they may make along these
lines to obtain Just treatment from
the transportation companies for the
ctlzens of the state."
Another clause of this same resolu
tion pledged to the corporation com
mission the body's earnest support In
the securing of just and equitable in
trastate rates to and from all points
in North Carolina.

The fttct that the Woman's Auxliary

the claim that wofaen of North Caro

Women Are Constantly Being Restored to
Health by Lydia E. Pinkham's
•Worth mountains of gold," says one woman. Another
says, M I would not give Lydia E. Pinkham's yegetable
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'B 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 of 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.
