A THEORY SUPPORTED B FRE8H,
A Recent Instance Proves That a
Woman's Happiness Is Largely De

When tho blood Is disordered every
organ of tho body Is affected unfavor
ably and falls to dlschargo Its func
tions properly. In tho caso of every
woman nnturo Iiiih mado- special pro
vision for a periodical purification of
tho blood, and bo long as this occurs

vital function, and until It Is restored
she Is doomed to misery. Tho remedy
that hns proved most prompt and
ffootlvo In all disorders peculiar to
the female sex Is that which brought
such great relief to Miss Mattlo
GrlggH, of No. 807 Indiana street, Law

speaks as follows:
"In the winter of il902. from immn
Unknown cause, there wns a cessation
of functlono peculiar to my sex for a
period of four months. I beenmo very

and a constant headache I was un

Six Doctors Failed.
South Bend, Ind.. Oct. 21 (Special)
After suffering from Kidney Disease
for three years; after taking treat
ment from six different doctors with
out getttng relief, Mr. J. O. I.audcman
of this plaeo found not only relief but
a speedy nnd complete- euro In Dodd's
Kldnoy Pills. Speaking of his cure
Mr. Laudeman says:
"Yes, I suffored from Kidney
Trouble for three years and tried six
doctors to no, good. Then I took Just
two boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills and
they not only cured my kidneys, but
gave mo better health in general. Of
course I recommended Dodd's Kidney
Pills to others and I know a number
now who aro using them with good re
sults." Mr. Laudeman's case is not an ex
ception. Thousands give similar ex
periences. For there never yet was a
ease of Kldnoy Trouble from Ilackache

ncy Pills could not cure. They aro

It Is called tho "Trossack," and Is of

Thero must be somo great plan be

to understand something of that plan

for their true worth.
Let us not bay "bad" or "good"
without taking testimony.
Thero nre times and conditions
when It certainly seems to tho casual
observer that these stimulant narcot

Right, thero is tho ambush that con

against them Is that seldom over docs

Certainly powerful elements In their
effect on the human race.
It Is n matter of dally history, testi
fied to by literally millions of people,
that Whisky, Tobacco and Coffee aro

on tho start, but always falsa as hell

hold enough to show their strength,
they Insist upon governing nnd drlvo
tho victim steadily towards ill health
In some form; if permitted to continue
to nilc, they will not let up until phys
ical and mental ruin sets In.
A man under that spell (nnd "under
tho spell" Is correct) of any one of
theso drugs frequently assures himself
and his friends, "Why, I can leave off
any time I want to. I did quit for a
week just to show I could." It Is a
suro mark of tho slave when ono gots
to that stage. Ho wiggled through a
week, fighting every day to break tho
spell, was finally whipped, and began
his slavery all over ngain.
Tho slavo (Coffeo slave sa well as
Tobacco and" Whisky) dally reviews his
condition, sees perfectly plain the
steady encroachments of diseuse, how
the nerves get weaker day by day and
demand tho drug that seems to smllo
and offer relief for a few minutes nnd
then leave the diseased condition
plainer to view than ever nmd grow
ing worse. Many times the Coffeo slave
realises that hn Is between bwo fires.
Ho feels bad if ho leaves off and a
Httlo worse if ho drink aird allows
the effect to wear off.
So it goes on from day to day.
Every night tho struggling victim
promises himself thnt ho will break
tho habit and aext day wheir ho feels
a little bad (as he is quite suro to),
breaks, not the habit, but hfs own res
olution. It is nearly always a tough

Now, Reader, what is your opinion
as to the real use the Creator has for
theso things? Take a look at tho
question from this point of view.
Thero Is a law of Nature and of
Nature's God thnt things slowly evolve
from lower planes to higher, a sturdy,
steady and dignified advance toward
more perfect things In both tho Physi
cal and Spiritual world. Tho ponder
ous tread of evolutionary development
is fixed by tho Inflnlto and will not be
quickened out of natural law by any
of man s methods.
Therefore we see manyv Illustrations
showing how nature checks too rapid
advance. Illinois raises phcnomo-,al
crops of corn for two or three years.
If she continued to do so every year
her farmers would advance in wealth
far beyond thoso of other sections or
countries. So Nature interposes u bar
every three or four years and brings
on a "bad year "
Hero wo see the leveling Influence
A man Is properous In his business
for a number of jenrs nnd grows rich.
Then Nature Eets tho "leveling Influ
ence" at work on him. Some ot his
Investments lose, ho becomes luxuri
ous end lazy. Perhaps it is wliisky,
tobacco, coffee, women, gambling or
somo other form. Tho intent and pur
poso Is to level him keep him from
svoIvdiR too far ahead of tho masses.
A nation becomes prosperous and
;roat like ancient Rome. If no level
ing influence eot In sho would domi
nate tha world perhaps for all tlmo.
But Dame Nature sets hor army of
lovelers" at work luxury, overeat

kinds then comes tho wreck. Sure

So the Creator has use for Whisky,
Tobacco and Coffee to level down tho
successful ones nnd those who show
signs of bchig successful, and keep
them back In tho race, bo thnt the
great "field" ithc massesbmay not be
loft too far behind.
And yet wo must admit that samo-all-wise
Creator has placed it in tho
power of man to stand upright, clothed
in the armor of a clean-cut, steady
mind, and say unto himself, "I decline
to exchnngo my birthright for a mess
"I will not deaden my senses, weak

short. It is hard enough to win tho
good things without nny sort of handi
cap, so a man is certainly a 'fool trad
er' when ho trades strength, health,
money and tho good things that come
with power for tho half-asleep condi
tion of tho 'drugger,' with tho certain
ty of sickness nnd disease ahead."
It Is a matter each individual must
decide for himself. Ho can be a lead

go along through life a drugged clown,

Certain it is that while the Great
Father of us all does not se'ein to
"mind" If somo of his children are
foolish and stupid, he seems to solect
others (perhaps those ho Intends for
somo special work) and allows them
to be threshed and castigated most
fearfully by these "lovelers."
If a man tries flirting with these lev
elers a while, and gets a few slaps as
a hint, ho had better take the hint, or
a good solid blow will follow.
When a man tries to live tpright,
clean, thrifty, sober and undrugged,
manifesting as near as he knows what
the Creator intends he should, happi
ness, health and peaco seem to como
to him. Does It pay?
This artlclo was written to set peo
ple thinking, to rouse the "God with
in," for every highly-organized man
and woman has times when they feel

them to presB to the front and "bo

It has been tho business of the
writer to provide a practical ami easy
way for people to break away from
tho coffeo habit and bo assured of a
return to health and nil of the good
things that brings, provided the abuse
has not gono too far, and even then
the eases where tho body has been re
