combined scolding and jollying with
magnificent effect. The tumult finally

was an instance of the superior jMwer

For Uniform Divorce Laws.
The state af Pennsylvania is lead
ing in ;i movement to secure uniform
divorce I. ;.st.on for the I'nited
States. The uniformity sought is un
attainable because the states are too
far apart with respect to what should
be the causes for divorce. New York
recognizes only one cause, infidelity.
while in some of the western and Pa-;
cific coast states incompatibility oft
temper is sufficient. J
To reconcile the views of New York
and Washington on this point would be
a work of many years. Moreover the
prejudices of the south with respect
to the marriage of white and colored
is an obstacle in the path cf uniform
ity. But there are some points on
which the states might agree. They
might agree to allow no divorce to a
person who. has not been a resident
of the state at least one year before
filing his or her .petition. They might
agree to allow no decree at the term
at which the petition was filed and
to permit remarriage to no person di
vorced 'within the stale -cr elsewhere
within the year.
These are matters in which some
states have acted for themselves and
without awaiting the concurrence of
others, but such legislation to be most
effective should exist in all the states,
so that a divorced citizen of Illinois,
denied the right to remarry within his
own state within the year, cou.ld not
evade the law by slipping over into
Indiana. Wisconsin or Iowa.

A WOMAN'S ORDEAL
DREADS DOCTOR'S QUESTIONS
Thousands Write to Mrs.Pinkham, Lynn,
Mass, and Receive Valuable Advice
Absolutely Confidential and Free
There can be no more terrible ordeal
to a delicate, sensitive, refined woman
than to be obliged to answer certain
questions in regard to her private ills,
even when those questions are asked
by her family physician, and many
continue to snffer rather than submit
to examinations which so many physi
cians propose in order to intelligently
treat the disease ; ami this is the rea
son why so many physicians fail to
cure female disease.
This is also the reason why thousands
upon 'thousanels ef women are corre
fcpemeling w ith Mrs. Pinkham. at Lynn,
Mass. To her they can eonfkle every
detail of their illness, and from
her great knowledge, obtaineel from

ills, Mrs. l'inkham can advise women
more wisely than the local physician.

either to speak 1 begge'l a thousand
pardons of the'i girl for not rectifying
her mistake at once, giving as my only

rould not bring myself to do so. While
