MEETS EES FATE IN A STORM
Destroyed During the Month at Bur-
The steamer Comet, which 'was tie
stroyed nt llurlingtoii in the storm
this month, has a rather interesting
history. It wjs built in the year
1S91 at Moline by a man named Frank
O. Walters, to be used as a floating
Monte Carlo. Moline at that time
was controlled bv a rather straight-
laced administration, that had closed
up all the gambling houses. As the
power of the city authorities only
reached to the water's edge, Walters
conceived the idea of building a boat
and barge for the use of the gambling
The const ruction f the Comet ami

ery night during the summer the
sports of Moline would board ('apt.
Walt its' craft and gamble to their
heart's content, without fear of mo
livery kind of gambling game im
aginable was to be found on board
the barge, and the enterprise w.is
well patronized. This was continued
for two seasons, when another city
election came and the si-called lib
eral element was victorious at the
polls. The gambling houses in Mo
line were reopened and the mission
of the Comet was ended.

The boat was then taken to Hanni

for two or three years. Kcithshurg

The Changeling Child.
The Scientific Explanation of
the Change Formerly At
tributed to the Fairies.
In folk lore stories there is frequent
mention of changelings children who
were changed by fairy influence. Some
loving wife and proud husband found
their child weak of body, and some
times weak of mind. It grew up to
be fretful, sullen and perhaps spiteful.
It seemed impossible that love could
bring such a child into the world.
So the child was called a fairy channe
ling, a jphild substituted by the fairies
for one whom in their envy for its lovli
ness they had carried away.
We hear no more of fairy stories.
Stern science says that healthy and
lovely children must have healthy par
ents, and that when the mother in her
days of waiting and anticipation is
nervous, anxious, sleepless and gener
ally miserable, her child will be weak
How reasonable this is. The child
can have no strength which the mother
does not give it, and how can the weak
mother, who has not enough strength
for herself have anything to spare for
her babe ?
THE FAIRY GOD-MOTHER
is a very pretty invention. But the real
fairy god-mother is the natural mother
of the child. It is she who must endow
her child with health from which
springs all other endowments desirable
The way to have healthy children is
to be healthy. But how to be healthy
is the vexing question for women. Is
the mother to blame because she is nerv
ous, because her appetite fails and her
strength wanes, because she is sleepless
and despondent ? One cannot blame the
woman whose only failing is that she does
not know how to change her condition.
Yet a woman's health is practically in
her own control. If she is weak she can
be made strong. If she is sick she can
be made well. The experience of other
women shows that the rose of mother
hood can be stripped of its thorns by the
use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
"When I wrote to you in March, ask
ing advice as to what to do for myself,"
savs Mrs. Ella Reynolds, of Guffie,
McLean Co., Ky. "I was expecting the
babv's coming in June, and was sick all
of the time. Had been sick tor several
months. Could not get anything to stay
on my stomach, not even water. Had

days, telling me to take Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription. I took three
bottles, and before I had taken it a week

Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is a
perfect medicine for women. It estab
lishes regularity, dries the drains which
weaken women, heals inflammation and
cures female weakness. It is the best
preparative for maternity, strengthening
the nerves, encouraging the appetite and
inducing refreshing sleep. It gives the
mother strength to give her child and
make the baby's advent practically pain

"During my two years
of married life I have not
had good health," writes
Mrs. Daisy Studdard, of
608 So. Esplanade Ave.,
Leaven worth, Kans. "I
was all run-down, and
my husband got me to
write to Dr. Pierce and
explain my case to him
ana see if he could do
me any good. So I wrote,
and, thank the Lord, I
got an early reply, telling
me what the trouble was.
I commenced taking Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription, and also
the 'Pleasant Pellets,' and now can say
that I feel like a new woman, and can
say also that we have a big baby four
months old. When the baby came it
was just wonderful how I got along and
now I do all my work and do not feel
tired out like I used to. I have taken
eight bottles of the Favorite Prescrip
tion. It makes one feel well and strong."
Women who are troubled with chronic
diseases are invited to consult Dr. Pierce,
