There la apt to be a, latent apprehension
bf distress to mar the complete Joy of
expectation. But this Is quite overcome
by the advice of so many women to use
"Mother's Friend." This Is an external
application designed to so lubricate tho
muscles and to thus so relieve the pres
sure reacting on the nerves, that the
natural strain upon the cords and liga
ments Is not accompanied by those severe
pains eaia to cause nausea, morning sick
ness and many local distresses. This
plendld embrocation Is known to a multi
tude of mothers.
Zlaty people believe that those remedies
which have stood the test of time, that
have been put io every trial under the
varying; conditions of-age. weight, general
health, etc, may be safely relied upon.
And Judging by tho fact that "Mother's
Friend" has been in continual use since
our grandmother's earllsr years and is
known throughout the United States it
may be easily Inferred that It some
thing that women talk about and gladly
recommend to prospective mothers.

Perjury Charge Made '
Over Saloon Petition
Upon an information alleged to have
been filed by A. C. Ingalls, TOO Wash
Ingtort avenue, baggageman at the
Northwestern railway station, Marlon C.
Harford, 807 Avenue D, one of the men
engaged In securing names to the saloon
consent petition, was arrested yesterday
upon a charge of perjury. The name of
Ingalls appears on the consent petition
and he denies that he placed it there.
Each canvasser was required to make
an affidavit that he personally witnessed
tho signing of eaph name to the petition.
Tile Affidavit does not declare, however,
that the sfeners are personally known
to the. canvassers.
The arrest of Harford created a good
deal of Indignation yesterday. It was
generally denounced as a "frame up,"
In which both Harford and Ingalls were
unconscious victims. Mr. Ingalls is well
known to be a temperate man and to
be strongly opposed to licensed liquor
traffic. Harford had never seen him to(
hU knowledge and when a man ap
proached Harford and said he wanted to
sign the petition lie was asked the usual
questions, If lie had voled at Jhe last
election, Ma namo. nnd address. The fact
that Ingalls' right name and address
were given by the. fellow who was im
personating him Indicates that It was
intended for a practical Joke, or a trap
deliberately laid. s
Tho warrant for Harford's arrent was
Issued by Justice Joseph. The bond fixed
by the Justice was quickly provided.

SENATE BECOMES AMBITIOUS
Advance! Its Meeting Hour from
Noon to Eleven O'clock-
HOUSE CAUCUS CALL IS ISSUED
Ilesotntlon I.linltlnic Party l'rogrnm
of Leirlslnllon Will. Be Con
sidered Next Tuesday
WA8HINQTON, May -Plans for an
early adjournment of congress took more
definite shape today when the senate
advanced Its meeting hour from noon to
11 o'clock and house leaders Issued the
formal call for a democratic caucus next
Tuesday night, when a "legislative pro
gram" will be laid out. which will In
clude adjournment as a leading feature.
If the senate holds to the 11 o'clock meet
ing .hour and Insists upon a few night
sessions, leaders believe that the hope of
adjournment July 10 may bo realised.
Majority Leader Underwood has no doubt
that the house can finish Its business 'be
fore that date.
The house caucus Tuesday will consider
a resolution announcing It to be the senso
of the party that antt-tVust, Interstate
trado committee and railway capitaliza
tion bills, the rural credits measures and
the appropriation bills should be passed
and the house then adjourn. It Is not
expected there will be any opposition to
Wherefore of Chnngc.
Tho senate .changed its meeting hour
today to hasten passage of the agricul
tural appropriation bill. This bill has
dragged along for more than a, week
with little progress and several senators
are anxious that It be disposed of before
other appropriation bills are-reported.
There was one cloud' on the adjourn
ment horizon when talk was renewed of
an uttempt to reach a vote at the present
session ,of the proposed constitutional
amendment for nation-wide prohibition.
The resolution proposing the amendrnent
was taken up In the house under a spe
cial rule to be brought up within a week
so that action may be taken promptly.
There is little likelihood that the amend
ment will bo taken up In tho Tuesday
Caucus, but there Is no Intention on fhe
part of the house lenders to - stifle It.
Its passage requires a two-thirds vote
and leaders expect the fight to be close.
Vlctv if Senator,
There Is a growing disposition on the
part of senators to take the attitude that
If the house passes the anti-trust legisla
tion and the senate becomes so tangled up
with It that there Is little prospect of
an agreement for months, adjournment
should be tnken without anti-trust action
hy the senate. These. senators feel .that
passage by the house would be assurance
to the country that the party is carrying
o'ut Its platform pledges and predict that
next winter there would be ample oppor
tunity to complete the work on trusts.
