What She May Expect.
The Goal of Lore is Marriage
and tbe Goal of Marriage
When a young man and young woman
are very much in love every step of life
they take is timed to the music of the
wedding march. The happy consumma
tion may be years away, but down the
path of the years the clear eyes of love
discern the spot which some day they
shall call home. And when the mar
riage is consummated and the home
founded another thought begins to fill
the minds of wife and husband, - a
thought that lies too deep for words,
tbe thought of a cooing baby voice, of
the patter of tender baby
feet and the music of happy
If the love of man and woman leads to
marriage, and marriage looks to mother
hood, what is tbe plain and obvious duty
of the woman about to assume the obli
gations of wifehood and motherhood?
It i her duty to prepare herself for her
own sake and the sake of the children
that may be given her, as well as for the
sake of her husband and her home.
HOW TO PREPARE.
The first thing to do is to cure diseases
of the delicate organism which under
mine the health and strength. Regu
larity should be established, disagreeable
and weakening drains must be stopped,
weakness must be cured.
"I have taken six bottles of Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription," writes
Miss M. Fj-fe, of Orilla, Simcoe Co.,
Ont., "and two bottles of the 'Pleasant
Pellets, as you advised for congestion of
the uterus, and for weakness, and can
safely say that your medicine has been
the means of restoring mc to good health
again, which I had not had for over three
years, until taking your medicine. I
thank you for 3-our kind and prompt at
tention to my letter asking advice."
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
meets the needs of women at every pe
riod of life. It is invaluable in that
transition period when the girl becomes
a woman, establishing regularity and pro
moting the general health. It dries of
fensive and enfeebling drains, heals in
flammation and ulceration and cures
female weakness. From the time of the
first change from girlhood to womanhood
until tbe last change of life, in all the
weakness of womanhood and trials of
motherhood Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription is a true woman's friend..,,., It.
makes women strong and well.
" It is a pleasure for me to recommend
your medicine, 'Favorite Prescription
and 'Golden Medical Discovery, " writes .
Mrs. Rhoda Russell, of Corbet, Navarro
Co., Texas. "I had suffered for years
with a disagreeable drain and other fe
male troubles, but now, thanks to your
medicines, I am much better and your
medicines have done me more good than
all else. I took nine bottles of Favor
ite Prescription' and six of 'Golden
Medical Discovery.' Had it not been
for Dr. Pierce's medicines no doubt I
would have suffered continually the rest
of my life. I shall always praise these
preparations. The cost of them is so lit
tle compared with tbe good I felt, yet I
owe you for what you have doue for me."

FOR BABY'S SAKE

tion is advised for all expectant mothers.
It not only Lelps tbe mother but help

Series of Interesting Meetings

GOOD SPEAKERS ABE SECURED
Growth of Bible Stud Work Since
Introduction Few Years
The Rock Island V. M. C. A. is
now putting out the ncalest line of
literature that the institution has
had during any season since its ex
istence. Not only is it attractively
gotten up and sufficiently comprehen
sive to set forth the work of the
different departments, but It has
the added merit of being priginal
with the officers of the association
in every detail. The printed matter
was all prepared by Secretary .T. S.
Freeman, and the sketches from
which the plates were made is the
work of . J. C. l'entlaud, formerly
physical director, and now at Omaha.
Mr. Pentland possesses considerable
skill as an illustrator and he. takes
great delight in the work.
There are three folders and a
card in the line of printed matter
vhich members and .prospective
members are receiving. There is a
hexagonal one folded in triangular
shape and outwardly a real work of
art, that sets forth the merits of
the Y. M. C. A. as a whole. Then
there is nnother describing in more
detail the work in the gymnasium,
setting forth the advantages the as
sociation has to offer, particularly to
business men who need , exercise
convenient in time and place. The
third folder tells of the bible study
department, outlining' the work in the
four grades, and containing the following-
history of this department:
"The bible study work of this as
sociation dates back five years to u
class of six or eight men conducted
by 15. (J. Hanks, assistant secretary.
The following year a training class
in personal work was held on Mon-daj-
evenings, with an average at
tendance 'of five men. In November
of the third year a class was opened
Sunday afternoons with an enroll
ment of eight men, which rapidly
grew to twenty-five, and it was dem
onstrated that the right day und the
right hour had been found for the
work. The fourth year opened with
an enrollment of 24, which increased
to nearly 50 during the season. The
Sunday evening lunch, for the con
venience of the students and teach
ers, was introduced at this time, and
has been the means of holding, many
young men who would not have other
wise remained for the bible classes.
It has also proved a valuable aid in
our social work, many acquaintances
and lasting friendships having been
formed at the lunch hour. The
past season began with an enrollment
of 40 men, which, including the boys'
class, reached nearly 60 during the
season. Fourteen international cer
tificates for efficient work have been
won in the past two years, and it is
hoped that a much larger number
may be secured this season. Any
young man may enroll in these
classes,-regardless of membership in
the association or the church."

the men's meetings Sundays begin

CAPT. BAKER NO MORE
Tri City Character Drops Dead in
Street at Daven
port. CONVENTION EXCITEMENT IS FATAL
Death Comes on Realizing Dream of
Securing Volunteer Fire
E. W. Baker, who had an extensive
acquaintance among the older peo
ple of Rock Island, dropped ueaci on
the street at Second and Perry, Dav
enport,' at 1:30 o'clock this morning
while trudging home after passing
through a strenuous day as chairman
tf the committee on information for
the Iowa Veteran Volunteer Fire
men's association, which is holding
its convention in th? town across the
river. The bringing of the state meet
ing there proved the realization of
a dream long cherished by the "old
gentleman, who had for years taken'
an active interest in the affairs of
the veteran firemen, and to whose ef
forts the organization and mainte
nance of the associations here and
at Davenport were largely due.
Mr. Baker for a number of years
s uffered from a nervcus affection. The
day toward which ht- had looked for
ward so long and in the arrangements
for which he had labored so energet
ically had arrived he was in the
midst of the festivities yesterday,
riding in one of the carriages for
honored guests, all the fire laddies
knew him, and shook him by. .the
hand, but the occasion proved more
thnn the infirm frame could with
stand: the old gentleman had worn
himself out, and passed to liie great
leyond in the midst of his reverie.
Held Public Office.
The deceased, in his day. was one of
the leading men of Davenport, having
served as fctreet .commissioner and
held other places of trust. In recent
years he traveled considerably on the
river, having an intimate acquaint
ance with n.any of the steamboat
masters, who were always pleased to
have the "captain," us he was famil
iarly xr.cwn, i.s a guest. When the
construction cf the Hennepin canal
was beg'in. he was there, and until
hiM death was proud in the possession
ff the spade that turned up the first
dirt in the excavation foi- the lower
section of the great waterway. And
when the western portion was com
pleted his knowledge of the canal
and its surroundings was of value to
parties for whom he acted as purser
in little voyages through the hicks.
The captain was well known among
t,he - newspaper men of the tri-cities,
frequently visiting the offices and
handing in items about his friends,
his hobby being mention of birthday
anniversaries, as he had a book in
which were recorded the names and
dates of birth of many of the leading
people of the locality. The. newspa
per reporters all liked the old gentle
man, and appreciated the enterprise
end interest he manifested toward
enriching their news columns.
Came West Fifty Years Ago.
Air. Baker was 7ii years of age, and
a native of New York state, coming
west with his wife and settling in
Davenport some fifty years ago. In
the early days of the city he was
i.nc of the prominent building con
tractors and helped const 1 net the
first t-trcet railway there. He was
then in comfortable circumstances
financially, but through subsequent
business reverses he lost practically
his all. Six children were born to the
couple, p.nd all died within a week
from diphtheria. This bereavement
was the cause of breaking up the
Davenport home, and Mr.' Baker and
his wife returned cast, where the
wife died about ten years ago. the
former then coming back to Daven
port to pass his remaining days. Mr.
llaker stood high in Masonry, and
Baker stotwl high in Masonry, was a
