On Her Feet
Polcin. Yuan Shi Kal, president of
the Chinese republic, delivered his
flrst verbal message in the form 0 a
speech at the opening Monday of the
BeBsion of tho advisory council which
practically 1b a provisional senate.
The president proclaimed that tho
principles of the new Chinese govern
ment must be tho maintenance of or
der in the interior, the achievement
of progress and the retention of ex
ternal friendships which are neces
sary to the existence of China.
Tho attitude of foreign powers in
recent years, he said, had been such
as to merit the gratitude of China.
Tho most important matter at pres
ent, tho president said, was .finance.
Foreign capital was essential to China
and tho government 7as drafting tho
principles of a financial reform; it
was negotiating with the powers for
an increase of the customs duties and
tho abolition of transit taxes and tho
reduction of the export taxes by which
the income from tho maritime and
native taxes would be increased to
approximately $42,000,000 from the
present total of approximately $30,
800,000. The Increase, he said would suffice
to pay for tho amortiatlon of the for
eign . loans. 'He hoped the railroad
and other loans would pay for them
selves. Yuan Shi Kai recommended plans
for lightening the burden of the peo
ple, for proper survey of lands, for a
new scale of taxation, for a unified
system of currency and for standard
weights and measures. He declared

THE SECRET OF SLONC OFE.
Do not sap the springs of life by neglect of the human mechanism, by allowing'
tho accumulation of poisons in tho system. An imitation of Nature's method of
restoring waste of tissue and impoverishment of the blood and nervous strength is
to tako an alterative glyoerio extract (without alcohol) of Golden Seal and Oregon
grape root, Bloodroot, Stone and Mandrnko root with Chcrrybark Over 40 years
ago Dr. Pierce gave to the public this remedy, which he called Dr. Piorco's Golden
Medical Discovery. He found it would help the blood in taking up tho proper ele
ments from food, help tho liver into activity, thereby throwing out the poisons from
the blood and vitalizing tho whole system as well as allaying and coothlng a cough.
No one ever takes cold unless constipated, or exhausted, and having what wo
call mal-nutritlon, which js attended with impoverished blood
and exhaustion of nerve force. The " Discovery" is an all
round tonio which restores tono to tho blood, nerves and
heart by imitating Nature's methods of restoring waste
of tissue, and feeding tho nerves, heart and lungs on rich
