Gave Up "Work Because of
His Weakened Condition
Earl McCoy, living at loOfi South
Bianson street, Marion, Ind., has pass
ed through an experience that is being
duplicated every day in every town
end city of any consequence in the
United Staies. It furnishes abundant
proof of the correctness of L. T. Coop
er's theory in regard to the degener
acy of the human stomach, and shows
conclusively the merit possessed by
his New Discovery medicine to restore
the weakened system to the full
strength and vigor.
Mr.' McCoy says: "For a long time
I have been a sufferer from, stomach
trouble. I was. unabie to retain any
food, and became so weak and run
down that I was compelled to stop
work. My system was nearly a wreck,
and I had tried so many remedies and
spent so much money without deriv

Mr. Vogel probably would not have
discovered his ailment nil til he had j
exposed others to the disease. When
the watchman saw Mr. Vogel walking
along the street in- front of the quar
antined home, he stopped the man and
informed him that he had smallpox.
Mr; Vogel immediately went to St.
Robert's hospital and it was not until
then that the health department was
notified. Mr. Vogel was anxiois that
he should not endanger the health of

ble to' attack on the ground that it
constituted an unreasonable restraint
of trade. Whenever the period of til
ing had passed without any such pro
hibition the contracts or combinations
could be a disapproved or forbidden
only after notice and hearing with a
reasonable provision for summary re
view on appeal by the courts. Labor
organizations, farmers' organizations
and other organizations not organized
for purposes of profit, should be al
lowed to register under the law by giv
ing the location of the bead office, the
charter and bylaws, and the names
and addresses of their principal offi
cers. In the interest of all these or
ganizations business, labor, and
farmers' organizations alike the
present provision permitting the re
covery of threefold damages should be
abolished, and as a substitute there
for the right of recovery allowed for
should be only the damages sustained
by the plaintiff and the cost of su:t
iucluding a reasonable attorneys' fee.
The law should not affect pending
suits; a short statute of limitations
should be provided, so far as the past
N concerned, not to exceed a year.
Moreover, and even more iii the inter

be brought only if the contract or com

AS TO UNIONS AND STRIKES
Peaceful Combination for Liegal Pur
pose the night of All.
It Is important ,that we should en
courage agreements between employei
and employe where they are just and
fair. A strike is a clumsy weapon foi
righting wrongs done ;to labor, and we
should extend, so far as possible, the
process of conciliation and Arbitration
as a substitute for strikes. Moreover,
violence, disorder and coercion, when
committed in connection with strikes,
should be as promptly and as sternly
repressed as -when committed in any
other connection. Bui strikes them
selves are, and should be, recognized
to be entirely legal. Combinations of
workingmen have a ieculiar reason for
their existence. The very wealthy in
dividual employer and still more the
very wealthy corporation stand at an
enormous advantage when compared
to the Individual workingman.
Twenty-two years ago, by the act of
June 20, ISStJ, trades unions were rec
ognized by law, and the right of labor
ing people to combine for. all lawful
purposes was formally recognized, this
right including combination for, mutual
protection and -benefits, the regulation
of wages, hours aud conditions of la
bor, and the protection of the indi
vidual rights of the workmen in the
prosecution of their trade or trades;
and in the act of June 1, 1S08, strikes
were recognized as legal in the same
provision that forbade participation in
or instigation of force or violence
against persons or property, or the ;lt
tempt to prevent others from working
! by violence, threat, or intimidation.
The business man must be protected
in person ar.d property, and so must
the fanner and the wageworker; and
as regards all alike the right of peace
ful combination for all lawful pur
poses should be explicitly recognized.
The right of employers to combine
and contract with one another and with
their employes should be explirit'y rec
ognized, and so should the right of the
employes to combine and to contract

ployers, and to seek peaceably to per

and to strike for the purpose of peace

should be done to legalize either a

illegal at common law; this being the
, type of boycott defined and condemned
by the anthracite strike commission.

The time has come when we shoubl

Is peculiarly the province of the con

indeed peculiarly the province of the
house of representatives to originate
a tariff bill and to determine nixm it
terms, and this I fully realize. It
seems to me that before the close of
this session provision should be made
for collection of full material which
will enable the congress elected next
fall to act immediately after it comes
Into existence. This would neces-d
tate some action by the congress at
its present session, perhaps in the
shape of directing the proper commit
tee to gather the necessary Informa
tion, both through the committee it
self and through government agents
who should report the 'committee
and should lay bet re it the facts
which ' would permit it to act wifh
prompt and intelligent fairness. These
government agents. If it is not deemed
wise to appoint Individuals from out
side the public service, might with
advantage be members of the execu
tive departments - designated by the
president, on his own motion or on
the request of the committee to act
with It. I am of the opinion,
however, that one change in the
tariff could with advantage be made
forthwith. Our forests need s every
protection, and one method of protect
ing them would be to put upon the
free list wood pnlp, with a correspond
ing reduction upon paper made from
wood pulp when they come from any
country that does not put an export
duty npon them.
Ample provision should be made for
a permanent waterways commission,
with whatever power is required to
make it effective, the reasonable ex

session for the beginning and prosecu

Natural Beauty in Women
It won't be necessary to spend pock
et money for face washes, lotions,
ci earns, powders and what-nots if the
simple rules of health are observed
the foremost and most important of
which is: "Be regular and be na
tural." If you make conscientious efforts in
this direction you will find your looks
duily improving. The change won't
come over night but results will be
far more desirable. You'll have a na
tural color, not an artificial one a
face, not a mask. The beauty of na
ture is worth cultivating artificial
beauty is a snare. A healthy woman
is always beautiful.
"It is largely a matter of ignorance
of her nature that induces many a
woman to neglect herself." says a doc
tor who makes a specialty of woman
troubles. "She thinks the things that
are, ought to be, but I have seen
n any thousands of converts won over
by the new health treatment, and I am
prescribing it for ail cases of female
irregularity and derangement. I get
the best results from the following:

with which this commission deals, is
