of the Womb, and consequent Spinal Weakness, and Ls ieculiarly
adapted to tlio Change f Life.
It has cured more cases of Itackacho and Leueonhcra than any
other remedy the world has ever known. It is almost infallible in such
cises. . It dissolves and expels tumors from tho Uterus in an early stago
cf development, and checks any tendency to cancerous humors.

Stomach, Indication, moating. Flooding, Nervous Prostration, Head
ache, (leneral Debility quic kly yields to it.
Womb troubles, causing min, weight, and backache, instantly re
lieved aud permanently cured by its use. Under all circumstances it
acts in harmony with the laws that govern the female system, and is as
harmless as water.
It quickly removes that Bearing-down Feeling, extreme lassi
tude, "don't cave" and " want-to-be-left-alone " feeling, excitability,
irritahilitv, nervousness, lizziness, Faintness, sleeplessness, flatulency,
melancholy or the blues," and backache. These are sure indications
of Female Weakness, or some derangement of the Uterus, which, this
niedicino always cures.
Kidney Complaints and IJackache of cither sex the Vegetable
ComiHund always cures.
Xo other female medicine in the world has received such

TO BE DEVOTED TO ATHLETICS
Will Have Two Stories and High
Iiasement-Is of Dark
Attorney John P. Looney is npapr
i in the erection of n Itiiildin on
his farm near Kock river east of
Ulaek Hawk Watch Tower that is
arousing1 the curiosity of the natives.
In fact it is rather a strange near
inj; st met lire, as fa.' as it is com
pleted, and Mr. Looiiev himself says
he does not know just what it will
pruw into before the summer is over.
In fact the owner is following- out
some iileas of his owir.
The place is lieiiifj Imilt near
head of u hollow just over the
from the Kock river bottom in
Miiiffirest place imaginable. It is
on the south s'ule of the hollow, com
pletely siirrounileil by hills and trees
anil it is far enough below the top of
the hills so that even the roof will
scarcely be visible to the outside
world. The slopes about the place
are grassy and beautiful and there
is not an artificial object within
range of the ision to mar the out
look from the building's site. The
most accessible approach is from the
west up the winding and heavily
wooded hollow, (
To Me llaralile Allnlr.
The building is being erected of a
dark colored stone and it is to be a
durab'e nfl'air. There are to lw. -.o
it is understood, two stories with a
high basement, the latter large aud
arranged that rigs may be driven
inside and hordes cared for there.
The two main floors are to be de
voted to club and athletic rooms.
In short, if the plans of the owner are
understood, the place is to be de
voted to athletics and sports and as
a place or entertainment lor t lie
friends of the owner.

deafness, and that is by constitu

by an inflamed condition of the mu

When this tube gets inflamed you
have a rumbling sound or imierfect

unless the inflammation can le taken

JUST ABLE TO REACH WINDOW
Porch Courtship Accountable for Hit
Heing in the Land ot
A ynnnff man well known about
Kock Island is relaling to his friends
the story of an escape from death he
had last week that will mark an
epoch in his life.
The gentleman in question rooms
in the central portion of town and
his apartment is supplied with an im
provement in connection wjth the gas
fixture that ignites the gas by means
of an-electric spark and turns it on
and oft automatically.
One evening last week the young
man came home rather late and when
he was ready' to retire he pulled the
cord that turned off the gas. The
light went out and he retired. It
was a cool evening and the window
was raised only an inch or two.
Sleeper In Arouxeil.
In an hour or such a matter the
sleeper was aroused by the voices of
a coiipie who were "sitting "p" on
the porch near his room. He became
instantly aware that something was
wrong with the air in the room and
attempted to rise. With a great ef
fort, he got upon his feel and stag
gered to the window, where he threw
up the sash and took big gulps of
When his senses clcarcil h realized
what the matter was and then he
lost no time in shutting ofT the flow
of gas. The hero of the adventure
claims to have learned two things by
means of it: One was to take no
stock in future in aiitomalic devices
for turning oil' the gas and the other
that late and boisterous courting
may not be an entirely unmitigated
