in July, 1&11. His mind was ulightly
affected and his health feeble. He did
not attract special attention until a
few days ago, when he informed Doc

WOMEN TAKE NOTICE!
A man cannot understand the torture and suffering many women endure
uncomplainingly. If the majority of men suffered as much pain and endured with
patience the weakening sicknesses that most women do, they would ask for
immediate sympathy and look for a quick cure.
Many women have been saved from a life of misery and suffering by turning
to the right remedy—Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription—a remedy which is safe
to take because containing no narcotics, alcohol or injurious ingredients. It is an
alterative extract of roots, made with pure glycerin, and first given to the public
by that famous specialist in the diseases of women—Dr. R. V. Pierce, of the
invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute of Buffalo, N. Y.
®Mrs. Lizzie M. Hessheimeb, of Lincoln, Neb., 529 «C " St.,
says: "1 send a testimonial with much pleasure so that some
suffering woman may know the true worth of your remedies.
I was a great sufferer from female troubles but after takiusr
one bottle of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription, which a
friend advised me to take, I found «nyself very much im
proved. After taking three more bottles, and using two
boxes of Dr. Pierces Lotion Tablets, I found myself on th*
road to recovery. I was in poor health for Ove years but

pupils of the Fremont high school who
have not been vaccinated were sus
pended this morning by City Superin
tendent of Schools .T. W. McClymonds,
and approximately 300 more will be
suspended within the next few days
from the Peralta, the Washington and [
the Melrose Heights schools.
Action was taken by Mr. ifcCljr
monds upon order of Dr. E. N. Ewer,
head of the board of heaßh, the latter
having received his instructions from j
the state board of health, which re
cently made an investigation of the
situation in Oakland.
Pupils affected are those who have
not been vaccinated and whose parents
filed affidavits at the beginning of the
term that they held conscientious scru
ples against the practice of vaccination.
They will not be permitted to return
to school until they have been inocu
lated or until the danger shall have
Superintendent McClymonds made a
trip to the Fremont school this morn
ing in person, ordering the temporary
suspension of the pupils involved. He
said this afternoon that about 100
were affected by his order, but that he
believed their absence from school
would be short, as many parents have
signified their intention of having
their children vaccinated.
At the Washington school and the
Peralta school tomorrow a large num
ber of pupils will be suspended. Within
a -week the Melrose Heights school will
be visited by Superintendent McCly
monds, who estimates that 400 pupils
or more will ultimately be affected by
the ruling of the board.
The schools mentioned come within
the zone marked "dangerous," and it
is not thought that any of the other
schools of the city will be affected un

Defiance Ends Quietly
BERKELEY, Feb. t. —John Ogden, a
grocer of Grove and Rose streets, tried
to ■defy" the health board today by
taking his two children in person to
the Oxford school and threatening with !
arrest any person who should expel
them. He showed a certificate of vac
cination from a physician, but this had
not been issued by a member of the j
health board, nor were the children ;
certified by the health board; conse- '
ouently, they were amenable to hnme- j
diate expulsion. Ogden's defiance ended j
quietly when Dr. J. J. Benton, health
officer, went to the eschool, examined
the children and pronounced them suc
cessfully vaccinated. Ogden went home
and the children remained In school.
