MARRIAGE FOR MONEY.
Dr. I'nrkhurst on the Tendency to Degrade
Marriage to the Level or Commerce.
"I cannot dismiss this matter without
deprecating the tendency so conspicu

marriage to the level of commerce,"
writes the Ucv. Cnarles H. Purkhnrst.
D. D., in The Ladies' Homo journal in
n paper on "The Young Man and Mar
riage." "This is not denying that there
are material considerations that in this
matter, as iu all others, require to be re
spected. A poor young man marrying a
poor yuuug girl, with only the prospect
that their life will become more and
more complicated as time go.-s m, is a

"Nor, on the other band, does niv
objection lie against any amount of
contingent assets with which either or
both of the contracting parties may
chauce to be endowed. My onlv conten
tion is that in every marriage not es
sentially unholy the basal element is
love, and that marriages which are 'ar
ranged,' marriages which mean, first
of all, an affair of perquisites or a bar
ter in commodities, arc a distinct in
fraction upon the spirit of the seventh
commandment. The voluminous dis
plays with which we know such unious

te the mischief and operate to teach
our young people in all conditions of
life that marriage may be reduced to a
species of traffic, differing from the

which the bargaiu is consummated.

In a sketch of Sir William Martin
Conway, the mountain climber and ex
plorer of the Himalayas, The English
Illustrated Magazine says that be bat
the "climber's walk" that is, a gen
tie roll of the body, with no unequal
steps, but swinging bis legs with rhyth
mic precision. He is a slim man, but
tough, fall of energy and with iron
muscles. When climbing the Himala
yas, he spent 84 days on snow and gla
cier. During that time he traversed
from end to end the three longest known
glaciers in the world outside the polar
regions and landed on the summit of
Piooeer peak, 22,000 feet high, the
- There is no
T sadder sight
than that of the
berett of the
loving care of a
mother. If wo
men would but
learn the vital
care of their
health, and al
ways look after the health and vigor of
the organs distinctly feminine, the pitiful
Sabbath day procession of motherless
children that goes to the cemetery to "pot
flowers on ma-ma's grave " would be ma
terially reduced in numbers. Too many
women bring a child into the world at the
sacrifice of their own life. This sad trag
edy may be avoided by any women who
wiil resort to the right remedy.
The usual dangers of maternity are ban
ished by the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription. It acts directly and only on
the important and delicate organs that
bear the burdens of motherhood. It
makes them healthy and strong, vigorous
and elastic. It does away with the dis
comforts of the expectant period, insures
the health of the newcomer, and makes
its advent free frora linger and almost
free from pain. Over v-.ooo have testi
fied to its virtues. Druggists who offer
substitutes are untrustworthy.
Mrs. William Vincent, of Sidnaw, Houghton
Co.. Mich., (care Birgland's Camp. Bnz U). write:
" When I first began to take your ' Favorite Pre
scription .' four years ago. I was suffering with
local weakness and heart trouble. At times I
could hardly endure the pain in ray sides, quite
low down, and had such a pain between my
shoulders I could not steep at tnght. Was just as
tired in the morning as at night. At limes there
was a very sharp pain around my heart. When
I would stoop over there was a dull aching jut
under the heart. Mv head ached and was con
tiuually sore to the touch. I took ten bottles of
the 'favorite Prescription ' and one bottle of the
'(Golden Medical Discovery. I can most truly
say that as a result I never felt better in my life.
I was more like a young girl than a mother of a
family. The pain all left me. so I know that your
medicines will do all that medicine can do."
A headache is a symptom of constipation.
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure constipa
tion, promptly and permanently. They do
not gripe. Druggists sell them.
