PARROT CRIES FOR
Sentenced to Have Tongue
Cut Out, so the Juarez
The Juarez policeman stopped with
a jerk. He knocked on the door of the
house from whence the voice came.
"Who calls?" asked the policeman.
"Madera," came the answer, and then,
"Viva Madera." "
The woman denied that she had
taught the parrot to cry "'Viva Madera"
such a dangerous thing to remark
but the woman who lived in the house
and her talking bird were brought to
the commandery of police, and ap
peared in the civil court, so at least
many declare who ought to know.
As result of the arraignment of bird
and. woman, the parrot was sentenced
to an awful fate so they say. It has
been decreed that the bird's tongue be
cut out, yet that the bird need not die.
The woman was freed, on her word that
she ,dld not teach the parrot to cry,
"Viva Madera." '
Such is the story they are telling
over in Ciudad Juarez where they say
it happened only yesterday.

Welcome Words to Women
Women who suffer with disorders peculiar to their
sex should write to Dr. Pierce and receive free the
fcdvice of a physician of over 40 years' experience
a skilled and successful specialist in the diseases
of women. Every letter of this sort has the most
careful consideration and is regarded as sacredly
confidential. Many sensitively modest women write
fully to Dr. Pierce what they would shrink from
telling to their local physician. The local physician
s pretty sure to say that he cannot do anything
without "an examination." Dr. Pierce holds that
these distasteful examinations are generallv need
less, and that no woman, except in rare cases, should submit to them.
Dr. Pierce's treatment will cure you right in the privacy of
your own home. His "Favorite Prescription" has cured
hundreds of thousands, soma of them .the worst of cases.
It is the only medicine of its kind that is the product of a regularly graduated
physician. The only one good enough that its makers dare to print its every
ingredient o its outside wrapper. There's no secrecy. It will bear examina
tion. No alcohol and no habit-forming drugs are found in it. Some unscrup
ulous medicine dealers may offer you a substitute. Don't take it. Don't trifle
with your health. Write to World's Dispensary Medical Association, Dr. R.
V. Pierce, President, Buffalo, N. Y., take the advice received and be well.
