before Henry Knemeyer and Sam
uel Kitchen reached a place
of safety a terrific explosion, the ignition
of several kegs of gunpowder ln the store
below, ripped up the floors and threw fire
brands in all directions. The two men
were seriously burned, but may recover.

as no cries were heard.

taker's. S. V. Kitchen, Mrs. S. V.
Kitchen, August Knemeyer, Miss Sidney
Day and Kitchen children, three in num
ber, aged 1, 8 an j 5 years. The injured

meyer and Samuel Kitchen.
The Mother Clasped Her Babe.
The bodies of Mrs. Kitchen, her sister
and baby were found together, one of the
arms of the mother clasping the babe and
the other around her sister. It was with
great difficulty that they were separated.
The firemen could not get a stream to the
building for some time owing to the
distance four blocks to the nearest
hydrant and the breaking of
one of - the mains. The large
residence of John Knock was also burned
The cause of the fire is unknown, as there
had been no fire ia the store since 8 o'clock.

The turning point
in woman's life brings peculiar
weaknesses and ailments. Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription
brings relief and cure. It is a
powerful, invigorating, restorative
tonic and nervine. It imparts
strength to the whole system in
general, and to the uterine organs
and appendages in particular.
"Run-down," debilitated and deli
cate women need it. It's a legiti
mate medicine purely vegetable,
perfectly harmless. It's guaranteed
to give satisfaction in every case, or
money refunded. Nothing else does
as much. Yon only pay for the
good you get. Can you ask more ?
As a regulator and promoter of
functional action, at that critical
period of change from girlhood to
womanhood, " Favorite Prescrip
tion'' is a perfectly safe remedial
agent, and can produce only good
results. It is equally efficacious and
valuable in its effects when taken
for those disorders and derange
ments incident to that later and
most critical period, known as "The
Change of Life.'
