A DISAPPOINTED LIFE.
WHY RICH AKDCAVFOKl) LEFT THE
A Etory in which There Seems a Tinge of
Fate Mrs. Cajford Etncken with
Paralysis, and Itt She Has
Ben Cured The Resi
dents tf tbe Mission
District Look up
on it as a Mir
acle. From tha Examiner, San Francisco, Cal.
Residents of the Mission District of
San Francisco have for months been mar
veling over the peculiar case of Mrs.
Anna Cayford, the wife of Richard Cay
ford, who resides at 313 Seventeenth
street. Several years ago Mr. and Mrs.
Cayford took up their residence in the
Hawaiian Islands where Mr. Cayford,
who is a blacksmith by trade, applied
himself diligently at his occupation until
at length, by reason of his hard work
and frugality, placed himself and family
upon a fair way to prosperity. He had
began to look forward to the enjoyment
of a quiet, happy life upon the beautiful
islands of the Pacific, and in his fancy
had built for himself and bis family a
comfortable little home, nestled snugly
among the deep and fragrant foliage of
that distant land. His wife shared with
him in the contemplation of the happi
ness that the future apparently had in
store for them. She had arrived at the
age at which rest and contentment count
for so much in a woman's life, when she
was suddenly stricken with nervous pros
tration. Her condition became very
serious, aud her physician advised her
that she must leave the islands if she
wished to regain her health. Acting up
on this advice, Mr. Cayford disposed of
his business and removed to San Fran
cisco. Mrs. Cayford improved slightly
witii the change of climate until July,
1893, when she was stricken by para
lysis of the left arm and leg, and was en
tirely deprived of the use of those limbs,
having to be carried about the house by
her husband for a period of two months.
She was treated for some time by a
physician, but he was able only partly
to relieve her. She was able to drag
herself about the house, but there was
no strength in either of the affected
It was while she was in this condition
that she noticed in a paper the adver
tisement of Williams' Pink Pills.' She
determined to get a box of them aad try
them, as she said, that at least she could
not be injured by them. Mrs. Cayford
tells of the relief she experienced from the
time she began taking the pills, and her
story is told in such a plain, straight
forward manner that it is given in her
"When I first began taking Williams'
Pink Pills," said Mrs. Cayford, I had ab
solutely no strength in either limb of the
left side of my body. The treatment of
my physician had partly relieved the
paralysis, but after he had applied all
his remedies I was still in practically a
helpless condition. Before I bad taken
one full box of the pills I began to feel a
return of strength in the limbs that had
been so long useless. Feeling reassured
by the first effect of the pills upon me, I
purchased a second box, and continued
to take them until I had used six boxes,
when the last traces of paralysis had left
my body and I had regained the full use
of my limbs. You cannot imagine how
delighted I was when I felt that my old-
time activity was returning. It remind
ed me of the days when I was so strong
and healthy at my island home. I do
not know what stronger testimony I
could give as to the tnerits of Williams'
Pink Pills than to say that they have
restored me to such a degree of strength
that I now do all my own work without
the least inconvenience, which is as much
as I ever did before I was stricken with
paralysis. But that is not all. I almost
forgot to say how the pills have relieved
me of a certain hesitancy of speech which
has troubled me for years. My tongue
used to become 'thick,' and I would lisp
most dreadfully and could not help my
self. I noticed that after I begun taking
the pills I could talk more easily, and
finally I was entirely relieved of the lisp
ing that affected my speech. I have tak
en the trouble to recommend the pills(to
an old lady who is afflicted with para
lysis. I have not seen her since she be
gan taking tbem, but her husband told
me, just the other day that she had been
greatly benefitted by them."
Mrs. Cayford's friends are amazed at
her sudden recovery from such a severe
paralytic stroke, and stand in wonder
ment while she repeats the story of her
suffering and her cure.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain all the
elements necessary to give new life and
richness to the blood and restore shat
tered nerves. They are sold in boxes

hundred) at 50 cents a box, or six boxes

PEOPLE'S PASTY NEWS BUREAU-
It Makes a Reply to its Critics.
St. Louis, Mo., May 7.
Certain peoples party papers of more or
or less note are esibiting a tendency to
castigate the national committee and,
incidently, to pass unjust strictures upon
thia news bureau, basing their cuiticisms
upon the mere assumption that the com
mittee and the bureau are engaged in a
deep, dark, damning conspiracy, or
words to that effect, to ruin the party by
"trimming" the Omaha platform to a
single silver plank. While these papers
are few and far between, it is nevertheless
unpleasant to be misrepsented and a
word regarding these unfair criticisms
right now is in order. First, it is to be
put down and remembered that the
national committee and the news bureau
are by no means identical, that "officing"
together is merely a matter of conven
ience which enables the bureau to secure
tbe news from the field ready to band
and promptly. Next the news bureau,
or its manager, has never declared in
favor of any expurgation of the Omaha
platform, further, so far as appears from
any public utterance, no member of the
national committee has urged any coali
tion of reform forces on a "one-idea"
platform standing for free silver, or any
other issue. It does not matter what
over-suspicious editors may guess, or
may say, these are the facts; and in this
as in all others.it is solely with facts that
this bureau has business. Tbe news is
published in these weekly letters as it is
found, as it comes direct from the people.
If the news honestly and correctly re
ported doesn't suit these few publishers
who are suffering from the attack of
yelloweye, it can't be helped. By the
way, the few to whom this paragraph is
directed will be more worthy of consid
eration if they will point out a -single in
stance in which the letters or correspon
dents of the national committee have
been in the least perverted or colored.
They cannot do this. Their insinuations
and warnings to publishers of this letter
are unjust and without the slightest

TBE SECRET AOT OF PERFIDY.
Was Mi. Harvey Absolutely I Accurate in
Kearney, Neb"., May 7, 1896.
Editor Independent: In your issue
of April 30th you take W. H. Harvey tr
tank for asserting that silver was de
monetized in 1873. In the interest 0'
accuracy and with the kindest of feelings
for the Independent and admiratien fo
tbe excellent work its editor is doing i
the cause of the people, I wish to present
your readers with a few suggestions con'
cerningyour criticism of Mr. Harvey.
His statement which yon deny was:
"Silver was demonetized February 12,
1873. " You say: "The act of 1873 did
not demonetize silver. It stopped the
coinage of the silver dollar, but it left
the silver dollar a full legal tender with
all the money functions attached to it
that it ever had." Again you say: "Sil
ver was not demonetized in 1873, but in
1 874, when congress adopted the codi
fied laws into which four or five disre
putable lawyers inserted a paragraph
not in any statute ever enacted by con
gress which limited the legal tender power
of silver to five dollars.
What is demonetization? Tbe Stand
ard Dictionary gives the following defi
nitions: "Demonetize: To divest of the
character of standard money; withdraw
from nse as money,
Applying this test you were partly
right and partly wrong. To take away
the unlimited legal tender quality of tbe
silver dollar and limit that quality to
five dollars was to demonetize the silver
dollar for it was no longer standard
money. This, aa you say. was done in
1874. But to stop tbe coinage of the
silver dollar was also to demonetize
silver, for this was to withdraw it "from
nse as money." Tbis, as you say, was
done in 1873. Now which was the great
er crime, and productive of the greater
degree of mischief? Reducing the legal
tender power of f 8,000,000 in silver
money to $5.00, or denying all silver ac
cess to the mints for coinage in to dollars?
Which of these acts ought to be char,
acterized as the "greatest crime of tbe
age," because of its far-reaching evil re
sults? Surely the latter; and Mr. Harvey was
right. I have already taken enough of
your valuable space for this time. In
future I may ask your indulgence for a
further discussion of this all-important
silver question. W. L. Hand.
Tbe Independent must insist that
there was no act passed in 1873 affecting
the legal tender power of silver not even
of minor coins for the words reducing
them to a legal tender of five dollars was
then already the law. "The crime of '73"
was stopping the coinage of silver dol
lars bnt our standard writers when they
reier to the secret ueuionelitaliuu of iU
ver, mean those words which were in
serted by perjury and perfldiy in sec
tion 3586 of the revised statutes. That
was done in absolute secrecy. It. was
never discussed. Not a line about it was
ever printed in any public document. It
was never referred to in any newspaper
or other publication. If Mr. Harvey had
appealed to that, instead of "February
12, 1893" bis case wonld not have been
open to assault and misrepresentation.
Section 3586 is the law that demone
tized silver, and even Mr. Rosewater
would hardly dare claim that the inser
tion of that section was fully discussed."
