Every mother possesses information of vital value to her
young daughter. That daughter is a precious legacy, and
tha responsibility for her future is largely in the hands of the
mother. The mysterious change that develops the thought
less girl into the thoughtful woman should find the mother
on tho watch day and night. As she cares for the physical
well-being of her daughter, so will the woman be, and her
When tho young girl's thoughts become sluggish, when
she experience headaches, dizziness, faintness, and exhibits
an abnormal disposition to sleep, pains in the back and lower
limb3, eyes dim, desire for solitude, and a dislike for the
society of other girls, when 6he is a mystery to herself and
.friends, then the mother should go to her aid promptly. ' At
such a time the-greatest aid to nature is Lydia E. Pink
h:im8 Vegetable Compound. It prepares the young
system for tho coming change, and is the surest reliance in
this hour of trial.
The following letters from Miss Good are practical proof
of Mrs. Pinkham's efficient advice to young women.

The democratic platform describes
the situation when ft says that the
Filipinos cannot be. citizens without
endangering our civilization. Who
will dispute it? And what is the al
ternative? If the Filipino Is not to be
a citizen, shall we make him a sub
ject. On that question the democratic
platform speaks with equal emphasis.
It declares that the Filipino cannot
be a subject without endangering cur
form of government. A republic can
have no subjects. A subject is possible
only In a government resting upon
It Is not necessary to own people in
order to trade with them. We carry on
trade today with every part of the
world, and our commerce has expand
ed more rapidly than the commerce of
any European empire. We do not own
Japan or China, but we trade with
their people. We have not absorbed
the republics of Central and South
America, but we trade with them. It
has not been necessary to have any
political connection with Canada or
the nations of Europe In order to trade
with them. Trade cannot be perma
nently profitable unless it is volun
tary. In commemoration of the fact that
France was our ally in securing inde
pendence the citizens of that nation
joined with the citizens of the United
States In placing in New York harbor
an heroic statue representing liberty
enlightening the world. What course
shall our nation pursue? Send the
statue of liberty back to France and
borrow from England a statue of Will
iam the Conqueror? Or shall our na
tion so act as to enable the American
people to join with tne Filipinos in
placing in the harbor of Manila a
statue of liberty enlightening the
What is our title to the Philippine
islands? Do we hold them by treaty
or by conquest? Did we buy them or
did we take them? Did we purchase
the people? If not, how did we secure
title to them? "Were they thrown in
with the land. Will- the republicans
say that inanimate earth has value,
but that when that earth is molded
by the divine hand and stamped with
the likeness of the Creator it becomes
a fixture and passes with the soil? If
governments derive their just powers
from the consent of the governed, it
is impossible to secure title to people,
either by force or by purchase.
The growth of the principle of self
government, planted on American soil,
has been the overshadowing political
fact of the nineteenth century. It has
made this nation conspicuous among
the nations and given it a place in his
tory such as no other nation has ever
enjoyed. Nothing has been able - to
check the onward march of this idea.
I am not willing that this nation shall
cast aside the omnipotent weapon of
truth to seize again the weapons of
physical warfare. I would not ex
change the glory of this republic for
the glory of all the empires that have
risen and fallen since time began.
. Our nation has a mission, but it is
to liberate those who are in bondage
hot to place shackles upon those who
are struggling to be free.
We rejoice in the marvellous victory
won by Dewey In Manila bay; we
would give to him a sacred place in
history and crown his memory with
blessings. To us he Is a hero; tc the
Filipino he can be a savior. Let him
be known to posterity, not as the sub
jugator of an alien race, but as the
redeemer of an oppressed people not
as a Lord Clive, but as a La Fayette.
The gratitude of a people is better
than a Jeweled sword.
There are degrees of proficiency in
tl-e art of self-government, but it is a
reflection upon the Creator to say
that he denied to any people the ca
pacity for self-government. Once ad
mit that some people are capable of
self-government and that others are
cot and that the capable people have
a right to seize upon and govern the
incapable, and you mafce force brute
force the only foundation of govern
ment and Invite the reign of a despot.
I am not willing to believe that an
all-wise and an all-loving God created
the Filipinos and then lelt them thou

Some argue that American rule In
the Philippine islands will result in
the belter education of the Filipinos.
Be not deceived. If we expect to main
tain a colonial policy, we shall not find
it to our advantage to educate the
people. The educated Filipinos are
now in revolt against us, and the most
ignorant ones have made the least re
sistance to our domination. If we are
to govern them without their consent
and give them no voice in determining
the taxes which they must pay, we
dare not educate them, lest they learn
to read the Declaration of Indepen
dence and constitution of the United
States and mock us for our incon
sistency. Let this nation stand erect and,
spurning the bribes or wealth and
power, show that there Is a reality in
the principles which we profess; let
it show that there Is a difference be
tween a republic and a monarchy, and
the oppressed in every land will see
in our flag the hope of their own de
liverance and, whether they are
bleaching upon the battlefield or
groaning beneath a tyrant's lash, will
raise their eyes toward heaven and
breathe a fervent prayer for the safety
of our republic. 3-
Rights never conflict; duties never
clash. Can it be our duty to usurp po
litical rights which celong to others?
Can it be our duty to kill those who,
following the example of our fore
fathers, love liberty well enough to
fight for it?
The army worm which occasionally
destroys a field of wheat is not nearly
so dangerous an enemy to the farmer
as a large standing army, which in
vades every field of industry and ex
acts toll from every crop.
A colonial policy means that we
shall send to the Philippine islands a
few traders, a few taskmasters and a
few office-holders and an army large
enou?i to support .the authority of a
small fraction of the people while they
rule the natives.
No, a thousand times better that we
haul down the stars and stripes and
substitute the flag of an independent
republic than surrender the doctrines
that give glory to "old glory." It was
the flag of our fathers in the years that
are gone; it is the flag of a reunited
country today; let it be the flag of our
nation in the years that are to come.
Its stripes of red tell of the blood that
was shed to purchase liberty; its
stripes of white proclaim the pure and
heaven-born purpose of a government
which derives its just powers from the
consent of the governed. The mis
sion of that flag is to float not over
a conglomeration of commonwealths
and colonies but over "the land, of
the free and the home of the brave;"
and to that mission it must remain for
ever true forever true.
There is an easy, honest, honorable
solution of the Philippine question. It
is set forth 'n the democratic platform
and it is submitted with confidence to
the American people. This plan I un
reservedly indorse. If elected, I will
convene congress in extraordinary ses
sion as soon as inaugurated and rec
ommend an immediate declaration of
the nation's purpose, first, to establish
a stable form of government' in the
Philippine Islands, just as we are now
establishing a stable form of govern
ment in Cuba; second, to give inde
pendence to the Cubans; third, to pro
tect the Filipinos from outside inter
ference while they work out their
destiny, just as we have protected the
republics of Central and South Am
erica, and are, by the Monroe doctrine,
pledged to protect Cuba.
