Is only sm of many symptoms which some women en
dure through weakness or displacement of the womanly
organs. Mrs. Lizzie White of Memphis Tens., wrote
Dr. R. V. Pierce, as follows :
- At time I was hardly able to be on my feet.
I believe I bad every pain and ache a woman
could have. Had a very bad case. Internal
organs were very much diseased end my back
was very weak. I suffered a Jreet deal with
nervous headaches, in act, I suffered all over.
This wes my condition when I wrote to you for
advice. After taking your 'Favorite Proserin
tion for about three months can say that my
health was never better."
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
Is a positive cure for weakness and disease of the feminine organism. It allays
Inflammation, heals ulceration and soothes pain. Tones and builds up the oervee.
Do not permit a dishonest dealer to substitute for this medicine which baa
record of 40 years of cures. " No, thank you, I want what I ask for."

The election will be held Monday night.
In the meantime, members of the board
are being urged by eitisens from all parts
of the city to vote for Dr. Spalding, whose
election would mean capable manage
ment. If the candidate of the conservatives
wins the loss of the secretaryship to
Burgess is certain. If Dr. Spalding Is
elected there will still be a majority on
the board pledged to vote for Bourke,
but the younger members who believe in
