cause no unpleasant reaction." In
cases of constipation when pills and

is often followed by constipation, as
they take so much water out of the

do not realize that it has been pro
duced in a medicine, and no reaction

Is Certain of Defeat.
Washington, Dec. 26.Democratic
Leader Underwood ^predicted that
when the proposed constitutional
amendment for woman suffrage reach
ed a vote in the house it would be
defeated probably by^ a. two-thirds
"I shall vote against it and so will
most of the Democrats in the house,"
said Mr. Underwood. "The party, by
caucus action, has gone on record
holding that woman suffrage, like pro
hibition is a state issue and not a na
tional question. It is a question for
the states themselves to act upon and
not for congress."
