ABSOLUTELY NEEDLESS AGONY
Caused by Uterine Disorders and Cured by
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compaund
A great many women suffer with a
form of indigestion or dyspepsia which,
does not seem to yield to ordinary treat
ment. While the symptoms seem to be.
similar to those of ordinary indiges
tion, yet the medicines universally pre
scribed do not seem to restore- the pa*
tie?t's normal condition.
Mrs. Pinlcham claims that there is a
kind of dyspepsia that is caused by a
derangement of the female organism,
and which; while it causes a disturb
?ce similar to ordinary indigestion,
cannot be relieved without a medicine
which not only acts as a stomach tonic,
but has peculiar uterine-tonic effects
As proof of this theory we call at
tention to the case of Mrs. Maggie
Wright, Brooklyn, N. Y., who was
completely cured by Lydia E. Pink
ham*s Vegetable Compound after every
thing else had failed. She writes :
For two years I suffered with dyspepsia
which so degenerated my entire system that I
was unable to attend to my daily duties. I
felt weak and nervous, and nothing that late
tasted good and it caused a disturbance in my
stomach. I tried different dyspepsia cures,
but nothing seemed to hel? me. I was ad
vised to give Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound a trial, and was happily surprised
to find that it acted like a Ono tonic, and in a
lew days I began,to enjoy and properly digest
my food. My recovery was rapid, and in
five weeks I was a well woman. I have rec
ommended it to many suffering women."
No other medicine in the world has
received such widespread and unquali
fied endorseraent.or hassuch a record of
cures of female troubles, as has Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.

SUPPOSED WIFE-SLAYER RELEASED
Planter Told Careful Story and Was
Contradicted Little in Material Facts
by Succeeding Witnesses.
Columbia, Special.-The inquest in
the case of Rebecca Planter, the neg
ro woman found some days ago in the
river near the Broad river bridge, waa
held Tuesday night in the court
house. There was the usual lengthy
amount of testimony and although
some of it was easily obtained because
of the intelligence of the witnesses,
the remainder was tangled up in a
shroud of hesitation and stupidity.
Few facts were really developed but
this was not the fault of Coroner
Walker, for he carefully and painsta
kingly and without impatience cross
examined the densest of the witness
. The jury retired about ll o'clock
and were out but a short time before
they returned a verdict that the dead
woman came to her death at the hands
of unknown parties. The woman's
husband, who has been in jail under
suspicion since Saturday, will be re
It was the opinion of Dr. L. A. Grif
fith, who conducted the autopsy, that
the woman was strangled to .death,
not drowned. This he was led to be
iieve by the fact that there was no
water or mud in the lungs. Dr. Grif
fith said that there were no marks of
external violence, but had there been'
tney would have been masked by the
fact that the body was so badly de
composed that the skin was loose and
slipping. One thing which he noticed
during the autopsy was that the hyoid
bone, whict is located just about the
region of the collar button, had be
come detached from the trachea. ThiB
may have been done if the woman
was choked to death, but may have
been caused by the effect of the water
on the body.
Some little delay occurred while the
main witness, Henry Planter, was be*
lng brought to the court house. He
finally appeared in the custody of
Jailer Meadows. Planter is quite an
ordinary looking negro, but was quite
calm and self possessed from the time
that his handcuffs were unlocked un
til he completed his testimony.
Planter went carefully and slowly,
but with little hesitation, through a
wealth of testimony, describing exact
ly where he had been from Saturday
afternoon until he met the sheriff on
Wednesday morning, when he was ar
rested. Planter says that he met the
sheriff and was told to come to his
office next morning. Arriving there
he was arrested.
His inquiries included a visit to po
lice headquarters with the. woman's
father. According to Planter's story
his search for his wife after she did
not appear at their home on Saturday
night, April 1, was thorough. If he
can be believed., he visited almost ev
ery place where he could find a clue.
He gave without difficulty the names
of the people he had seen and those
whose homes he had visited during
the interval, until he had the fact of
his wife's disappearance published,
visiting The State office on Tuesday
following the niguc she had first been
Planter's tale was a pretty straight
one, and he was not materially contra
dicted by the witnesses who followed
him. However, several assertions
were made which were significant,
and some which were not alluded to
in his own statement. Col. John C.
Haskell was at the inquest to see that
Planter received fair treatment.
William Perry, father of the woman
was examined first. The salient por
tion of his testimony was his assertion
that when Henry Planter had told
him on Sunday morning of his child's
disappearance he felt that something
must have happened to her. His im
plicit faith in his daughter's habits
and virtue led him to this belief.
JJe testiSo? tkat PJagter. toiil him
Tuesday morning that his daughter
was undoubtedly, dead, and further,
that at his solicitation Planter went
with him to police headquarters. Perry
seemed to imply that the domestic re
lations of the Planters were not al
The first new statement injected in
the testimony was the statement made
by David Grant, whose home Planter
had visited early Sunday morning
while searching for his wife. In
course of conversation Planter told
him that Anderson Strand had threat
ened to kill his wife and he believed
she was dead.
A very intelligent witness was the
small negro girl, Maggie Perry, who
testified that Planter came to her
home on Saturday night and after ask
ing for his wife he had taken the key
to his homo and a kerosene can. She
said .that this was the front door key,
while Planter had been positive that
it was the- back door key. She said
that she had been at the Planter home
on Saturday afternoon when both were
there, and had heard Henry ask his
wife to ride out to Ridgewood park
David Grant is one of the men whom
Planter had visited Sunday morning
while" looking for his wife; and Rosa
Perkins is Planter's sister, at whose
home he spent some time since the
disappearance, louag Multry lives at
thc home where Planter came to get
the key and oil can. He and his wife,
Bebecca Multry, testified, and so did
Elsie Adams, an aunt of the dead
wemau. The latter, was a particularly
good witness and worthy of note in
her testimony was the "fact that Plan
ter had not been to visit her in five
years until he came Sunday to ask
if his wife was there.
Wm. Coultry, well known as a hack
driver, testified that when Planter
came to his house on Sunday, April 1,
he told him that threats had been
made to kill his wife. He also said,
according to Coultry, that he asked
his wife to go to Ridgewood, hoping
it would pacify her after a row they
Anderson Stroud, a negro laborer
with stains of whitewash on his shoes,
had heard quarrels between the Plant
ers but this was two months ago. He
saw Rebecca Planter about dark on
either Friday or Saturday afternoon.
He said that although living next the
Planters he had never had any diffi
culty with either.
Sheriff Coleman testified that when
Rebecca Planter's body was found her
skirts were turned, up and pinned
around her neck. He also testified t?at
Planter made half a dozen statements
to him but Col. Haskell objected to
this on the ground of incompetency.
Mr. E. h. Mattison of Van Meter's
undertaking establishment corroborat
ed the sheriff.
From the testimony of Dr. Griffith
and Mr. Mallison it seems very prob
able that che woman was strangled to
death and Sheriff Coleman's testimony
about her clothing strengthens the be
lief that she was murdered. Perhaps
her husband may have committed the
crime and he is undoubtedly a sly
negro. There wa.-, some surprise that
the jury did not hold him for inves
tigation. This would not necessarily
mean an indictment for murder but
dimply a way to find cut the facts.

The week ending S a. m., Monday
the 10th, began with high tempera

Their Choirs cf Hymns.
When Burton 'Holmes, the lecturer,
was in England the past -summer he
visited a famous prison. He was
there on Sunday and attended the
church services. The prisoners were
permitted to select' the hymns that
they were ito sing, and Mr. Holmes
said that they threw much feeling
into "Free From the Law, O Happy
The last hymn was "Cod Be-With
You Till We Meet Again." Thia
seemed curious to -the visitor, espe
cially as he noticed that many of the
convicts smiled broadly while sing

the warden explained that a prisoner,
who had been there for years was to
be discharged the next day.-Boston
