A Douglas county member opposed a
bill giving the men the right to vote be
cause she thought If they did- vote they
would vote too often.' A bill to give to
women one member on the State Board of
Control was ably advocated by a mem
ber who said the state institutions were
largely filled with women and for that
reason they were entitled to representa
tion on the. board which purchased the
supplies Tor the Institutions. Mrs. Bunt
ing was against the bill because the
women wouldn't know what to buy or
how much to pay for It.
"The women are not used to purchas
ing anything Involving large sums of
money," said she. "Why should we want
to buy soap," she continued, "when we
never us any?" The bill was.i however,
A bill regulating the hours of women
brought out quite a, discussion and a
roll call wai had. When It appeared that
th motion to postpone Indefinitely had
been lost, several changed their votes.
One member said that she wanted to be
on the winning side and would change
from yea to no. Another wanted to
change her vote and appealed to a neigh

One who had changed from aye to no
asked leave to change back again.
The big discussion of the morning wss

. Women from the Atlantic to the Pacific from all sections

but that some woman has written words of thanks for
health restored by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Corrt

BcsHNELL, III. u I think all the trouble I have had sinoe my
marriage was caused by exposure when a young girl. Jtf y work has
been housework of all kinds, and I have done milking in the cold and
snow when I was too young to realize that it would hurt me. I have
Buffered.very much with bearing down pains in my back and such
miserable pains across mo, and was very nervous and generally run
down in health, but sine I have taken Lydia E. Ilnkham's Vegetable
Compound my back never hurts me, my nerves are stronger, and I
am gaining in health every day. I thank you for the great help I
have received from your medicine, and if my letter will benefit suf
fering women I wUDe glad for you to print it." Mrs. Jakks Cbdbev,
A Grateful Atlantic Coast Woman.
IIodgdon, Me. -I feel it a duty I owe to all suffering women to
tell what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound did for me. One
year ago I found myself a terrible sufferer. I had pains in both sides
and such a soreness I could scarcely straighten up at times. My
back ached. I bad no appetite and was so nervous I could not sleep,
then I would be so tired mornings that I could scarcely get around.
It seemed almost impossible to move or do a bit of work and I
thought I never would be any better until I submitted to an opera
tion. I commenced taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
and soon fult like a new woman. I had no pains, ilept well, had good
appetite and was fat and could do almost all my own work for a fam
ily of four. I thall always feel that I owe my good health to your
medicine." Mrs. IIaywa&d bowsas, llodgdon, Maine.
For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has ben the standard remedy for fe
male Ills. Ho one sick with woman's ailment
does justice to herself If shedoes not try this fa

bas restored so many sufferingrwouien to health.
