You will read letters from many classes of women, young and old, mother and daughter.  They are genuine expressions of gratitude from one woman to another.

Thousands of women by word of mouth and by letter highly praise Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound.

“Of all the world’s wealth
The best treasure is health,
For without it there’s nothing worth while.”

Baking of bread and rolls
[Illustration]

The pans should be well oiled and the loaves should never more than half fill them.

Bread should be put into a hot oven and loaves should rise during the first fifteen minutes.  It should continue browning for the next twenty minutes then reduce the heat somewhat.  Small loaves require 45 minutes, large ones 1 hour.

Biscuits and rolls require a hotter oven than bread.  They should rise for the first five minutes and then should begin to brown.  After 15 minutes reduce the heat and at 30 minutes the biscuits should be golden brown and thoroughly baked inside.  Remove bread from the pans as soon as it comes from the oven.  Keep covered with a clean cloth until cool then place in a stone jar or tin box.

What does your druggist say when you ask him if he can recommend any good medicine to you because you are nervous and run-down and not able to get your work done?  He suggests that Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound is a well-known and well-made medicine and that he knows many women who take it and recommend it.

Could not work half the time” “For many years I have had troubles with my nerves and have been in a general run down condition for some time.  I could not do my work half the time because of troubles every month.  I was told of Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound by friends and advised to try it.  It has done me good and I strongly recommend it.  Since I have taken it I have been able to do all my own work, and I also know friends who have found it good.  You can use these facts as a testimonial.”  Mrs. Ellen flatters, Box 761, Cobourg, Ontario.

White bread
[Illustration]

Ingredients 1 tablespoon lard 1 tablespoon butter 1-1/2 teaspoons salt 1 tablespoon sugar 1 cup scalded milk 1 cup boiling water 1 yeast cake in 1/4 cup lukewarm water 6 cups sifted flour

Method—­Put lard, butter, salt and sugar into large bowl.  Pour over them the scalded milk and boiling water.  When this is lukewarm add the yeast cake dissolved in luke-warm water.  Sift in flour gradually, beating with a spoon.  Toss on a floured board and knead until smooth.  Allow it to rise over night in a moderately warm place or until it doubles its original size.  Cut down or knead and allow it to rise until light, then form into loaves or biscuits.  Allow these to rise until light, then bake.  The amount of yeast used will depend on the length of time the bread is allowed to rise.
