FOR THE DISTRESSING COMPLAINTS AMD
DISEASES OF WOMEN.
What the Most Eminent Medical Au
thorities Say of the Ingredients
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription,
LADY'S SLIPPER (Cyprtpedium Pubescens)
BLACK COHOSH (Cimiciuga Kacemosa)
UNICORN ROOT (Chamalirium Lideum)
BLUE COHOSH (Caulophyllum Thaliciroides)
GOLDEN SEAL (Hydrastis Canadensis)
Lady's Slipper cures cramps, spasms
and convulsions, and has a specific action
in painful periods, nervous twitchings,
chorea and epilepsy. It quiets irritabil
ity of the nervous system, and causes
the mind to become calm and cheerful.
Its effects are most happy in hysteria,
melancholia, sleeplessness, nervous head
aches, excitability and sensitiveness. It
is also a tonic of great power.
Black Cohosh is efficient in overcom
ing painful or suppressed periods, leu
corrhea, ovarian pains, bearing down
feelings, and the other diseases of the
uterine system; the headaches which
accompany them and those of nervous
origin. It is employed successfully in
the treatment of nervous excitability, St.
Vitus's Dance and convulsions. It is
an appetizer of particular efficacy, is
used in rheumatic and neuralgic troub
les, and is a general as well as a uterine
Unicorn root has distinctive medicinal
properties. It imparts tone and vigor
to all of the reproductive organs of
women, and removes diseased and ab
normal conditions. It is of the. greatest
service in cases of falling or other dis
placements of the womb, and it unques
tionably makes childbirth easy and safe.
It is of great benefit in inflammation of
the bladder, dyspepsia, nausea and loss
Blue Cohosh prepares women for
; ' . V
childbirth and makes them more com
fortable in mind and body. It prevents
miscarriages, causes labor to be easier,
shorter and less painful, and diminishes
the number of the days of confinement.
It stops the nausea and vomiting of
pregnancy and can be relied upon to
produce good results in painful or sup
pressed periods, leucorrhca, uterine in
flammation, and all the nervous symp
toms attending the diseases peculiar to
Golden Seal is a valuable tonic which
is especially useful in all inflammatory,
conditions of the mucous membranes ex
emplified by uterine and vaginal irrita
tions, leucorrhea and bladder troubles.
It quickly cures nausea, vomiting, indi
gestion and dyspepsia, and increases the
appetite. It is also a regulator of the
functions of the liver and the intestines.
All of these statements can be verified
in detail by reference to King's Ameri
can Dispensatory, Bartholow's, Scud
dcr's and other recent standard works
on the medicinal action of the native
drugs of North .America.
The marvellously curative effects cf
the special combination of these reme
dies in one medicine, namely,
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
is testified to by the unanimous praises
it has received from many thousands of
women, each of whom has been restored
to health by it, after suffering from some
one or more .of the diseases peculiar to
her sex. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre

in the native woods and which contain

in that it contains
absolutely no al

other poisonous principles, and hence
can be taken by the maiden, and wife,
and the elderly matron and spinster with
perfect safety and the assurance that it
will never establish a drug habit. Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription
in that it is a remedy
devised by a physician
with an experience of over one-third of
a century in treating women's diseases,
and is not a patent medicine in any
sense of the word. It is, however, a
household remedy which cures ninety
eight per cent, of the cases for which it
is taken, and is so firmly established in
popular favor that the carping criticisms
and unwarranted denunciations of those
who pose as reformers and show their
ignorenrc by acting as amateur advisers
of the .ck cannot undermine the peo
ple's well founded faith in it.

Erastus Callahan, one of the old-time
colored men of Lincoln, known perhaps us
well as any citizen of the capital, died last
night. His body was found in his room at
Eleventh and O streets. Callahan was an
old-time republican, and was the subject of
many practical Jokes by politicians. Some
time ago a petition was circulated to get
him appointed police matron, and it was
not until a large number of citizens had
signed it that Callahan was told the police
matron had to be a woman. This almost

saloons for a number of years.

Mr. Wood says the available Ice In
Omaha, Including the Talbot company's
estimate of its dally output of sixty tons
from January 1 to May 1 and 1-U tons dally
from May 1 to November 1, will amount to
only about 4o,0oo tons. Between Mi.0.0 and
iV.OOi tons of ice were used in Omaha last
year. These figures do not consider the
South Omaha packers. Swift Is said to
have his usual supply of ice, but un Omaha

always paid on a scale according to the
size of their purchuses. I.asl summer those
who used the least Ice paid 17 a ton: this
summer they will pay at least $10. The

The rate will tie t';M to a ton. If the
Minnesota producers will sell cheap the lco
