strong possibility that J. M. Dickin

eldest son, who has just suffered a
serious attack of heart failure,
coupled with a recent death in his
family, is said to prompt Mr. Dick
inson to this thought. Secretary
Dickinson is now at Belle Mead.

iThe Chicago Banker comments as
follows on the discussion which his
arisen over the above law:
"The daily press has raised quite a
hullaballoo over section 179 of the re
vised penal cod" of the Unitd States.
The report of congressional proceed
ings shows that the secti;m was passed
without objection, although the read
ing of many other sections was attend

seems reasonable to suppose that th-J
little metal check in use in mining
towns rather than bank checks was
in the minds of the lawmakers as th'n
section was read and passed."
SCHOOL BENEFACTOR DEAD
Marquise Mario des Monticrs Morin
ville. Founded Catholic University.
New York, Oct. 6. The Marquise
Marie des Montiers-Merin ville, a pas
senger on the steamship Kronprin
zessin Cecilie. died just before the
vessel reached quarantine yesterday.
Death was caused by Bright's disease.
The marquise, who was 4 6 years
old, before her marriage was Miss
May Caldwell of Louisville1 anil New
York city and prominent socially here
and in the south. Her sister, Baxon

This Fact that in addressing Mrs. Pinkham you are con
fiding your private ills to a woman a woman whose ex
perience with women's diseases covers twenty-five years.
The present Mrs. Pinkham, daughter-in-law of Lydia E.
Pinkham, was for years under her direction, and has ever
since her decease continued to advise women.
Many women suffer in silence and drift along from bad
to worse, knowing well that they ought to have immediate
assistance, but a natural modesty causes them to shrink
from exposing themselves to the questions and probable
examinations of even their family physician. Such ques
tioning and examination is unnecessary. Without cost
you can consult a woman whose knowledge from actual
experience is great.
MRS. PINKHAM'S STANDING INVITATION;
Women suffering from any form of female weakness are in
vited to promptly communicate with Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn,
Mass. All letters are received, opened, read and answered by
women. A woman can freely talk of her private illness
to a woman; thus has been established this confidence
between Mrs. Pinkham and the women of America which
has never been broken. Never has she published a testi
monial or used a letter without the written consent of the
writer, and never has the company allowed these confi
dential letters to get out of their possession, as the hun
dreds of thousands of them in their files will attest.
Out of the vast volume of experience which Mrs. Pink
ham has to draw from, it is more than possible that she
lias gained the very knowledge needed in your case.
She asks nothing in return except your good will, and her
advice has helped thousands. Surely any woman, rich or
poor, should be glad to take advantage of this generous
offer of assistance. Address Mrs. Pinkham, care of Lydia

FOR OUR GREAT SUCCESS
TODAY we are selling more dollar's worth of everything musical than any music house in this section.
There is a reason and it is not hard to trace it's due to our honest dealing, one price system of doing
business. We are not in control of any single factory, obliged to push their goods and make a profit
satisfactory to them. We control our own business and buy our pianos and musical merchandise where we
can get the greatest values for the least money, and our customers get the benefit of our years of experience in
the music business as well as the saving in price afforded by an independent concern buying for cash. Any
Piano or Player Piano bought at Smallfield's carries our guarantee and in addition that of one of the foremost
manufacturers in the couutry.
THERE IS A REASON
That it is to your interest to consult us, inspect bur line and inquire as to our business methods before buying
a Piano or anything else in the music line. -
