She comes from the past and re-visits
She looks as she did then, all beauty
So smiling and tender, so fresh and
And yonder she s:ts in my cane
Many a man sits silent and alone in a
home of mourning and conjures up before
bis eyes the face and form of the woman
who was once a loving wife and a faithful
helpmate. In thousands of such cases the
wife might still be alive and well and
happy, had the man been not only a good
husband, but a wise adviser. Women
shrink from the ordeal of consulting a
physician. They shudder at the thought
of submitting to the obnoxious examina
tions insisted upon by most physicians.
In the majority of cases they have none
of this hesitancy about consulting their
husbands. A wise man will understand at
once that troubles of this description will
soon break down a woman's general health.
He will understand that a specialist of emi
nence and world wide reputation should be
frankly consulted at once. Dr. R. V. Pierce,
for thirty years chief consulting physician
to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Insti
tute, at Buffalo, N. Y., is one of the most
eminent and widely-known specialists in
the world. With the assistance of a staff
of able phvsicians, he has prescribed for
many thousands of ailing women. He has
discovered a wonderful medicine for wo
men, that may be used in the privacy of
their homes. It is known as Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription. It cures surely,
speedily and permanently, all weakness and
disease of the distinctly feminine organism.
It allays inflammation, heals ulceration,
soothes pain, gives rest to the tortured
nerves, and checks debilitating drains.

sough advanced to be hurt. Wheat was

Fred Werner's Lnck.
The Cimarron Jacksonian says of Fred
Werner of this city :
While on her way to Dodge City yes
terday morning Mrs. Luther lost a cape
somewhere along the road. The cape
was found by Fred Werner, who passed
by on a bicycle a few hours later. On
his arrival at Cimarron he came direct to
the Jacksonian office and wrote a notice
for publication, stating that he bad found
the garment. Knowing that Mrs. Luther
had driven down to Dodge in the morn
ing we thought perhaps the lost cape
might belong to her, and so apprised the
finder of the fact. On inquiry we found
our surmise to be true, and the cape was
turned over to Mr. Luther. Mr. Werner
lives at Dodge City, and in his travels on
a wheel of late has been very fortunate
iu finding lost articles. Among other
things he found a lap robe, overc at, and
a pocket book containing 980, all of
which were returned to the owners. But
honesty always has its reward, and Wer
ner was no exception to the rule. Going
into a town where a four hundred dollar
piano was being raffled off he was pre
vailed on to take a chance, and won the
A -Narrow Escape.
Thankful words written by Mrs. AdaE.
Hart of Groton, S. D : "Was taken with
a bad cold which settled on my lungs;

consumption. Four doctors gave me up,
saying I could live but a short time. I
gave myself up to my Savior, determined
if I could not stay with my friends on
earth, I would meet my absent ones above.
My husband was advised to get Dr.
King's New Discovery for Consumption,
Coughs and Colds. I gave it a trial,
took in all eight bottles. It has cured
me, and thank God I am saved and now

Judge B. F. Milton Of Dodge City,
tells an interesting story that illustrates
the rise in value of cattle. He has a
family cow that drops a calf every spring
with exemplary regularity. Three or
four years ago it was quite a job to get
rid of that calf at any price. Last spring,
however, the day the calf was born there
were three men after it. This year if
nothing happens there will be a calf next
month again. Already two men have
spoken for it, secured the refusal.of the
calf that is not born yet. If this thing
goes on the family cow will be as much
a matter of interest as the Duchess of
Marlborough was and daily bulletins will
be issued as to the prospects, probable
sex, etc. Kinsley Mercury.
