! Favorite Prescription of Dr. Pierce
DISEASES OF WOMEN ONLY.
FOR forty years Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription has been more
generally sold than any other medicine prescribed for woman's
ills. Dr. Pierce tells you just what is contained in this marvelous
remedy for the diseases peculiar to women. There is not a particle of
alcohol or injurious drug in this prescription. Pure, triple-refined
glycerine is osed for a solvent and preservative instead of alcohol. Ask
your physician if any one of the following ingredients which are con
tained in this prescription are injurious. We' guarantee that no harm
ful results can follow the use of this cure for those distressing and
painful complaints from which women suffer at one time or another.
The ingredients are : Golden Seal root, lady's Slipper root, Black Co
hosh root, Unicorn root, Blue Cohosh root, chemically pure Glycerine.
The active medicinal principles of the several ingredients, or native
American roots employed, are extracted by the use of glycerine of
proper strength and with the aid of special apparatus and appliances
devised and built especially for carrying on the delicate and exact
process efl employed. These processes cost Dr. Pierce and his assistant
chemists and pharmacists much study and a long series of tedious ex
periments, extending over a period of several years, and finally re
sulted in an almost perfect pharmaceutical compound now known
as Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
There are good and substantial reasons why intelligent people and
physicians as well, employ Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription for the
cure of diseases and weakness peculiar to women.
In the first place, it is not a cure-all, serving only a singleness of
purpose, being a specific for one class of diseases only those peculiar
weaknesses and maladies incident to women. Besides it is the only
medicine put up for sale through druggists for the cure of such mala
dies, all the ingredients of which have the endorsement of leading med
ical practitioners and writers, as being the very best known remedies
for the ailments for which " Favorite Prescription " is advised.
With other medicines the afflicted have only their makers' word
for their efficacy. With Dr. Pierce's medicines they have the disinter
ested endorsement of scores of eminent medical practitioners and med
ical writers of wide renown. These numerous unqualified endorse
ments, from men whose writings are regarded as authorities in each of
the several schools of medicine, are the more valuable because they
were written without any knowledge on the part of the several writers
that they were extolling the curative virtues of ingredients that go to
make up Dr. Pierce's world-famed medicines. Dr. Pierce's Family Med
icines, therefore stand alonk in respect to being the only ones pro
fessionally endorsed as remedies, or cures, for the several diseases for
which they ;ire recommended. A glance at the published ingredients
will show that no narcotics or other harmful agents are employed; that
no alcohol enters into their composition ; that they are made of the
. oots of indigenous, or native, medicinal plants: that, instead of alco
hol, chemically pure glycerine, of proper strength is used, both for ex
tracting and preserving the medicinal principles residing in the several
WELCOME WORDS TO WOMEN.
From the view point of the nveraee
man housework if very f &y . The wile
is right at home. She is her own mis
tress. She can sit down and rest any
time, She can even to to bed lor a nap
if she feels like it. She can order her
household affairs iust to suit her own
convenience. If ulie dow?n't feel equal
to doing work to-day, she can do it
to-morrow. That's the beautifnl theory
of the average man.
Just suppose the Egyptian task-masters,
when they made the required
daily tale of bricks tax the uttermost
of human strength, liar said to the
toiling slaves, "Don't hurry, take a
rest every now and hen only don't
forget that your tale of bricks must
be all right at night or else there'll be
There's the fact. There are the
day's duties to be got through, and the
women who can rest may not. The
woman, who, when she married, said,
"Now, I'll be my own mistress," linds
herself, a slave to household cares and
And oh 1 how much that woman
needs rest sometimes. She brushes and
scrubs, and rolls pastry, her temples
throbbing, her back aching, her nerves
quivering under the stress of pain.
What she would give if she could just
creep upstairs and throw herself on the
bed in a darkened room and rest.
Rest would temporarily relieve the
strain, doubtless, but it would be the
same story over again to-morrow. The
real ned of wealt, nervous women is
strength, and that need is fully met
and satisfied by Dr; Pierce's Favorite
Prescription. It makes weak women
strong and sick women well. It re
moves the causes of women's weak
ness, tranquilizes apd invigorates the
nerves, encourages the appetite and
induces restful sleep. "Favorite Pre
scription" is a positive cure for the
most complicated and obstinate caes
of leucorrhea, excessive flowing, pain
ful menstruation, unnatural suppres
sions and irregularities, prolapsus or
falling of the womb, weak back, " female
weakness," anteversion, retroversion,
bearing-down sensations, chronic con
gestion, inflammation and ulceration
of the womb, inflammation, pain and
tenderness of the ovaries, accompanied
with "internal heat."
"I an pleased to add my testimony
in behalf of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription," vfrites Miss Earline Agard,
Chaplin, Patriotic Daughters of Amer
ica, of 4l3,j Michigan Avenue, Lansing,
Mich. "1 cannot find language to ex
press my gratitude and joy over the
fact that I am well onoe more. Wear
ing my corsets too tight seemed to have
brought on an extra abdominal pres
sure, weakening the ligaments and
pushing the internal organs down.
What to do I knew not, as no medi
eines 1 took seemed to help me.
" I had heard of Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription and determined to try
it, as a last resort. Before the first
bottle was used I began to feel better,
but could hardly believe that this
was permanent, but my improvement
went steadily on, ana within four
months I was like a new woman.
Now I have no more pains, am well
and strong, and am extremely grate
ful to you."
There is nothing to conceal about the
make-up of " Favorite Prescription."
It is an' absolutely pure medicine
made of native root Nature's Own
restorative, compounded after a form
ula concerning which there can be
question, by skilled chemists and by
thoroughly scieotillc proceseee. Doctor
Pierce is perfectly willing to let every
one know that his "Favorite Pke
PCRIFTIO" contains Blue Cohosh root,
Lady's Slipper root, Unicorn root, Black
Cohosh root and Golden Seal root.
Every doctor knows that such a pre
scription is beneficial in the diseases
of women and when properly com
pounded is certain to effect a cure in
nearly all cases when given a fair trial.
Every bottle of the Favorite Prr
bcriptios" which leaves Dr. Pierce's
immense laboratories in Buffalo, N. Y.,
has plainly printed upon its wrapper
ail the ingredients oi whicn it is com
posed. Thus Dr. Pierce proves to the
world his own confidence in the rem
edy which for forty years has borne
his name and which is known all
through the United States and Canada,
England, Australia, and in parts of
South America, Africa and Asia, as a
sovereign cure for those diseases which,
unchecked, make our women old be
fore their time. '
It will be noticed that there is no
alcohol in the "Favorite Prescrip
tion." Dr. Pierce never believed in
using alcohol in the preparation of his
famons household remedies. For it; he
substitutes chemically pure glycerine,
which has wonderful properties for ex
tracting the medicinal principles of
roots and preserving them at their full
strength, without any deleterious effect
In favor of Dr. Pierce's, medicines
is the frank, confiding, open, honest
statement of their full composition,
giving every ingredient in plain En
glish, without fear of successful criti
cism and with confidence that the
good sense of the afflicted will lead
them to appreciate this honorable man
ner of confiding to them what they are
taking into their stomachs when mak
ing use of these medicines.
Dr. Pierce feels that be can afford to
take the afflicted into his full confi
dence and lay all the ingredients of
his medicines freely before them be
cause these ingredients are such as
are endorsed and most strongly praised
by scores of the most eminent medical
writers of all the several schools of
practice as cures for the diseases for
which these medicines are recom
mended. Your druggists sells the "Favorite
Prescription" and also that famous
alterative, blood purifier and stomach
tonic, the "Golden Medical Discov
ery." Write to Dr. Pierce about your
case. He is an experienced physioian
and will treat your case as confidential
and without charge for correspondence.

Prof. Elllngwood. M. D., of Bennett
College, Chicago, say of Golden Seal:
"In Its therapeutic (remedial) Influence
Its widest ra?ign of action is upon the
stomach. In functional disorders of that
organ, where the entire apparatus, includ
ing the liver Is stagnant and Inoperative.
It Is a most superior remedy In catarrhal
gastritis (inflammation of the stomach),
chronic constipation, general debility, In
convalescence from protracted fevers. In
prostrating night-sweats. It is fin im
portant remedy in disorder peculiar to
women. In all catarrhal conditions, espe
cially If there he muscular relaxation and
general enfeebleniont, It Is useful."
Edwin M. Hale. M. D., Professor of
Materia Medica. at Hahnemann Medical
College, Chicago, states In regard to
Uolden seal (Hydrastis): "in relation to
Its general effects on the system. there is
no medicine in use about VliU h there is
suchgencrnl unanimity of opinion. It Is
universally regarded as the tonic useful
In all debilitated states."
From the foregoing extracts it will be
seen that Golden Seal root is a very cfli-
cent curatlvo agent In most of tho weak
nesses and ailments affecting the organs
Trof. John M. Scudder says of Lady's
Slipper root (Cypripedium I'nbescens):
"This root Is valuable in all cases of nerv
oil exci tabil it y or irriUihU Uy u neon n ec ted
with organic lesions, allaying the irritabil
ity, lessening any accompanying pain,
producing a calm and cheerful condition
of the body and mind, and consequently
favoring mental tranquillity, or sleep.
Hence it has been of service In hysteria,
chorea, nervous hetidaches, wakefulness
and prostration in low fever, andindeed,
In all case of morbid Irritability of the
nervous system, from functional derange
ment or reflex Irritation. It will lx found
very efficient In the nervousness hyp
ochondria, or mental depression accom
panying certain forms of derangement of
the digestive organs, which is moro gen
erally met with among females."
Prof. John King. In the American Dis
pensatory savs of Black Cohosh root
(Clmlclfuga Kaeemosa): "This Is a very
active, powerful and useful remedy, and
appears to fulfill a great number of indi
cations. It possesses an undoubted in
fluence over the nervous system. In frniall
doses the appetite and digestion are
Improved. Plays a very Important part
In the therapeutics of Gynavology (dis
eases of women). In the painful con
ditions, Its remedial action is fully dis
played. By its special affinity for the
female organs, It is an efficient agent and
it in surpassed by no other drug, being of
freatest utility In Irritative and congea
Ive conditions of the appendages, char
acterized by tensive, dragging pains,
resembling the pains of rheumatism. It
Is a good remedy for the reflex ' sideac.he.' "
Dr. John Fyfe, of Snugatuck, Conn.,
Editor Department of Therapeutics in
The Eclectic Review says of Unicorn root
(Hnlonlas I)iolcaone of the chief Ingredi
ent of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription:
"A remedy which invariably acts as a
uterine invlgorator and always favors a
condition which makes for normal acti
vity of tho entire reproductive system,
cannot fail to bo of great usefulness and
of the utmost importance to the general
practitioner of medicine.
"In Unicorn root we have a medicament
which moro fully answers the above
furposes than any other drug with which
am- acquainted. In tho treatment of
diseases peculiar to women It Is seldom
that a case Is seen which does not present
, some Indication for this remedial agent."
Weak Women Made Strong,
Sick Women Made Well.1
IN the above eight words is summed op the great work for women which is;
accomplished by Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
The record of cures effected by this remedy is without a parallel. Thousands .
of testimonials received from patient and from physicians who have tested it
in the more aggravated and obstinate cases which had baffled their skill, prove
it to be the most wonderful remedy ever devised for the relief and enre of uf
fering women. , .
It is composed wholly of medicinal principles extracted from the roots of
native, American forest plants, pure triple-refined glycerine Of proper strength, t
being used instead of harmful alcohol both in extracting and preserving thest

Tha excavation for the Fairmont com

afternoon. The ditch running around the
excavation at the outer, edges is 'bein
filled with concrete for the foundations.
It la five feet deep and has heavy planks

rowsrul of concrete. These planks and a
wheelbarrow had a great deal to do with
protecting the two men from the crushing
weight until the rescuers could tunnel to
them and drag them out. They were able
to make themselves heard by the men
on the outside, and the latter were encour
aged In their work of rescue. A large
crowd gathered at the scene, and It re
uulred considerable exertion by the polKe

who was pale nml weak, but seemed un

were crossed und ' doubled under tne. I
saw the slide coming, and the last thing I
thought of was that I, had my iijsurnnce
paid up, for I have a wife and one child.
I threw my arms above my bead and
leaned against the back of the ditch. It
seemed to mc like I was In there two

It was rive minutes after Hosklns was

he declined to be taken to a hospital.

the quiet hour, Iji. S. Karlo Taylor, secre
tary of the Youug People a Missionary so
cieties, delivered a short address, upon
IJIble study, pleading with them for a
closer and moro persistent study of the
Word of God as a means to help them In
not only their daily lives, but In preparing
them to help and Instruct others.
Miss Snydbr, one of the national workers
In the women's borne mission field, talked
upon home mission work. Her remarks
were; supplemented with numerous inci
dents of the great work already acebm
pllshed for the upbuilding of Christ's king
dom by the home mission society and the
.wonderful opportunities In store for It.
Secretary E. B. Caldwell of Tennessee
spoke briefly of tho work among the white
classes in the south, particularly among
those who were In sore need of the evan
gelizing Influence of the gospel. The work
was progressing and much good was being
done In this field, especially among the
gro In the Sooth.
A feature of the morning session was the
address oS Secretary G. G. Logan, one of
tho leading colored men of Methodism In
America. Mr. Logan Is highly educated,
having received his education In one 'of
the southern theological seminaries estab
lished by the Methodist church. Tils ad
dress began with tho reconstruction period
and the evolution of the negro race from
slavery to the blessings of freedom and
the right to seek knowledge.
"The money spent by the Methodist
church in planting schools throughout the
south has been well spent." said he. "At
Nashville and Atlunta schools have been
established for the higher education of the
colored race, two medical colleges, one at
New Orleans, and another at Nashville.
From these sehools have gone forth over
800 doctors of the colored race and they
are doing Immeasurable good among our
people In the south. All of these schools
have a large enrollment of students. I
know one young colored physician, a
graduate of one of these schools of ten
years ago, who Is now receiving an annual
income of ,0C0.
Georgia the Stronghold.
Georgia is the stronghold of the African
Methodist Episcopal church. Throughout
the south we now hold twenty annual con
ferences, have nearly 2,000 pastors and
Srt.Olu lay members.
. "Not only are many of our churches self
supporting, but, poor as we are, we have
given $a.178for foreign missions. My hope
for my people is the gospel. Do not give
us what you cannot use yourself. We ie
quire the best you have and nothing else
will satisfy us. The leopard's spots can be
changed by the gospel. Only recently I
went hark to the little country school where
I received my first Instruction and there.
In a lonely churchyard, was the grave of
my mother; a mother with the marks of a
Slav on her shoulders. She had suffered
everything for ma that she might give me
an education from her meager earnings.
But the hope of the gospel was In her soul
and she wrought and tolled for her boy for
belter things than she could ever hope for
except her simple gospel faith. She has
l.-et-u dead uiAuy years, but some bright
morning, better than all that have been or
will be, when the Angel Gabriel shall blow
his silver trumpet tuunmoning.ua all there
in that land where -she now Is, I know
mother will heanrnsirolce and come to me
and that we shaR meet to part no more. 1
plead with you to stand by my people. We
need you never more than now. Have you
made a mistake In. trying to educate us In
the gospel? Send us the gospel, for it saves
a human soul. Our aouls, though wrapped
In a black skin, are Immortal."
The morning session closed with an ad

ceptible to the moralizing Influence of Jhe
gospel and la accepting It with seal that
promise the most hopeful result. As I
stated, the gospel work I growing, and
mission field are being constantly en
larged. Through this enlargement of the
field it became accessary to enlarge our
working force. I have been in the field
for ten years and have during that time
witnessed a wonderful work among the
African races. It Is a grand field and ono
which will appeal to us strongly until the
entire Dark Continent Is Illumined with
the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ."
AFRICA THE UWD OF THE Fl'Tl'RE
Bishop Hnrtsell Eloquent in Telling
f It Possibilities.
That the continent of Africa eomonly
pictured as a region of darkness will some
time In the near future be a center of civ
ilization and commercial industry was the
prediction of Bishop Joseph C. Hartzell
In an address last night before tho mis
sionary conference at the First Methodist
church. Bishop Hartzell Is in chargo of
the missionary work In the dark continent
nd is familiar with conditions there.
"The northern part of the continent,"
be paid, "was one of the early seats of
the world' civilization, and It will again
be through the Influence of the Christian
religion a center of learning.
"There are already thousands of miles
of railway, and the mileage Is being In
creased nil tho time. The Abyssinian
railway proved an open door to a region
of grcitt wealth nnd was really the be
ginning of the lirst great black empire
on the African continent.
"The great mass of the people nre black,
but you must remember there are varieties
of black people as well as of white people
and the possibilities of some of the black
people aro Just as large as thoso of other
"Cecil Rhodes began tho building of a
railway from Capetown to the north and
already it ha penetrated 2.50U miles Into
the Interior. The road from Cairo south Is
2.0C0 mile long, so 4.000 of the 6.000 mile
across the continent Is traversed by rail
roads. I expect to live t see the time
when I can take a Pullman at Canetown
and thread the way clear to the blue Medi
terranean. Inside of twenty-five yeurs
Africa will be covered by a network of
railroads with this north and south line as
the muln artery."
Bishop Hartzell paid a tribute to Cecil
Rhodes who, he said whs lteil about
before his death and afterward as much as
Washington was. Whllp he v,tl not a per
fect man, he did much fi'7 civilizing of
Africa and no missionary project was
started that did not resolve substantial
aid from bin),, His amhiion, declared the
bishop, wns the bettering of the condition
of the barbarous races in Africa, He
made $30,000,000 and pave it all for the
Improvement of h urbanity.
"We aro distinctly .hopeful about the
mission work in frlca." he said in clos
ing. "It will be redeemed from savagery
and our church will have done It share
in the work.'.'
Mrs. Robert Ward, a native of India
and the wife of a missionary, sang a solo
at tho close of the address. She woro a
native dress and her appearance on the
platform added interest to the session.
