This is also the reason why thousands noon thousands of Women are corre sponding with Mrs Pinkham, daughter-in-law of Lydia E. Pinkham. at Lynn, Mass. To her they ran confide every detail of their illness, and from her great knowledge, obtained from years of experience in treating female ills, Mrs. Pinkham can advise sick women more wisely than the local phvsiclan. Read how Mrs. Pinkham helped Mrs.T. C.Willsdsen of ManDitJg'.Ia. he writes: Dear Mrs. Pinkham: " I can truly say that you have ssvsd my Ufa, and I cannot express my gratitude in words. Before I wrote to you -telling yon how I felt, I had doctored for over two rears steady, and spent lots of money In medicine besides, but it all failed to do me any good. I had female trouble and would dailyhave faint ing spells, backache, bearing-down pains, and my monthly periods were very irregular and finally ceased. I wrote to you for your ad vice and rwlved a letter fall of lnctructioua tust what to do, and also commenced to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and I have been restored to perfect health. Had it not been for you I would have been In my grave to-day. n Mountains of proof establish the fact that no medicine in the world equals Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound for restoring- women's health. have nothing to say about a man who can take one drink and stop at that, yet It cannot be gainsaid that the man who takes one drink will take the second some time and the third some other time. I only hope all my men would abxtaln totally from Intoxicating drink. In this day and age there Is a great demand for men who at all times have clear brains and their wits about them, and the police department Is no exception to the rule." TIIR BOTH CHXTXRT LIMITED.

NDIAN LIQUOR CASES ON TAB everal Important Testa of the tw neeketed Before the Fed eral t'oart. The trial docket of the United States district court for the Msy term will In clude a large number Indian liquor cases. In which Indictments will be tried for in troducing liquor onto the Indian reserva tions, providing the United Ststes supreme court will deny the application tor a writ of habeas corpus lu the James Lincoln esse. In this esse the question of concurrent jurisdiction arises between the federal and atate courts. Lincoln wss indicted for tak ing liquor onto the Indian reservation, and It is held by the government that this is In violation of the guardianship and trus teeship laws of the government aa bearing upon the raae of the Indians. The attor neys for Lincoln hold the opposite view, and bsse their contention upon the Brewer decision, which gives to Indian allottees of lands the lights of any other cltlaon and the right to exercise the common functions of a cltisen, including the right to absorb as much liquor as he can hold, as welt as to absorb It at any point he may feel disposed, be It on sn Indian reserva tion or otherwise.' Lincoln was tried and convicted under the Indictment charging him with Intro ducing liquor onto the reservation, and .in appeal at once was taken to the United States surpreme court for a writ of habere corpus, and the hearing on this application will be held April 19. at Washington, the interests of the government being looked after by the Department of Justice, and those of the Indian by Thomss L. 81ns n. Upon the decision of the supreme court In this case will hinge the disposition of the several cases now pending In the United Ststes district court at Omaha, either for trial ot dismissal.
