Tized, Nezvous Mothezs
MaKe Unhappy Homes Their Condition Irritates
Both. Husband and Children How Thousands
of Mothers Have Been Saved From Nervous
Prostration and Made Strong and Well.

JMrs. Chester Curry Jltrs.Ctas.K&rown
A nervous, irritable mother, often on
the verge of hysterics, is unfit to care
for children ; it ruins a child's disposi
tion and reacts upon herself. The
trouble between children and their
mothers too often is due to the fact
that the mother has some female weak
ness, and she is entirely unfit to bear
the strain upon her nerves that govern
ing children involves ; it is impossible
for her to do anything calmly.
The ills of women act like a firebrand
upon the nerves, consequently nine
tentbs of the nervous prostration, ner
vous despondency, " the blues," sleep
lessness, and nervous irritability of
women arise from some derangement
of the female organism."
Do you experience fits of depression
with restlessness, alternating with
extreme irritability? Are your spirits
easily affected, so that one minute you
laugh, and the next minute you feel
like crying ?
Do you feel something like a ball ris
ing in your throat and threatening to
choke you ; all the senses perverted,
morbidly sensitive to light and sound ;
pain in the abdominal region, and
between the shoulders; bearing-down
pains; nervous dyspepsia and almost
continually cross and snappy?
If so, your nerves are in a shattered
condition, and you are threatened with
Proof is monumental that nothing in
the world is better for nervous prostra

sands of women can testify to this fact.

Mrs. Chester Curry, Leader of the
Ladies' Symphony Orchestra, 42 Sara
toga Street, East Boston, Mass.,
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:
For eight years I was troubled with ex
treme nervousness and hysteria, brought on
by irregularities. I could neither enjoy life
nor sleep nights: I was very irritable, nervous
" Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
was recommended and proved to be the only
remedy that helped me. I have daily im
proved in health until I am now strong and
well, and all nervousness has disappeared.
Mrs. Charles F. Brown, Vice-Presi
dent of the Mothers' Club, 21 Cedar
Terrace, Hot Springs, Ark., writes
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:
I dragged through nln years of miser
able existence, worn out with pain and ner
vousness, until it seemed as though I should
fly. I then noticed a statement of a woman
troubled as I was. and the wonderful results
she derived from Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound. I decided to try it. 1 did so.
and at the end of three months I was a differ
ent woman. My nervousness was all gone, I
was no longer irritable, and my husband fell
in love with me all over again."
Women should remember that Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is
the medicine that holds the record for
the greatest number of actual cures of
female ills, and take no substitute.

GENERAL ANDRADE SAYS THAT
HE SEES BUT ONE SOLUTION
AND THAT IS FOR UNITED
STATES TO ASSUME CONTROL.
Havana, Ser-t. Z3. Secretary Tan

con stated that they were thoroughly
disgusted with the petty methods of
the government leaders here and th?
American commissioners admitted
that they had practically abandoned
hope of bringing peace from the tur
moil unless by the use of force?.
Mr. Tat said: "The government
officials, instead of co-operating with
us to save the republic, have resorted
to every kind of obstruction, with the
object of continuing their control of
the administration. President Palma
and his advisers have rejected terms
of peace which were honorable to
them, though in the form of a com
promise with their opponents. We
are still striving to arrange a settle
ment and we trust the American peo
ple will give us credit for doing every
thing possible to accomplish a settle
ment without resorting to force."
General Freyre Andrade, speaker of
the lower house, made the following
statement on behalf of the govern
ment officials: "If the Americans
wish to take our government and give
It to the rebels, they may do so, but
not with our consent. We shall never
consent to the holding of new elec
tions. It would not only be a great
injustice, but if the rebels won Cuba
would have the worst elements in con

would have another revolution on our
The genera was then asked what
would be his solution cf the problem
and he replied distinctly and impres
sively: "tssee only ono satisfactory
way out of it for the United States
to take control of Cuba for one or two,
or possibly four years. The right kind

now without such control. There
must be a reconstruction period after

Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. 25. The action
of the Democratic state committee in
referring all contests to the conven
tion met with general approval, and
It facilitated the work of organization
for the work before the Democratic
state convention, which began at noon
in what was formerly the armory, and
which has a seating capacity of 4,000.
At neon State Chairman Cord
Meyer Introduced the temporary
chairman, Lewis Nixon of New York,
a former leader of Tammany Hall. Mr
Nixon spoke briefly and then the con
vention teok up the work of naming
the different committees.
Mr. Nixon's speech was devoted In
the main to accusations against the
the state administration, alleging the
misuse of $101,000,000 appropriated
for reconstruction of the state canals,
and of betrayal of labor, and closed
with an appeal for harmony, which he
predicted would ensure victory at the
approaching elections, and lead to the
verthrow of Republican domina
tion in national affairs.
The serious work of the convention
Is planned for Wednesday, when it is
proposed to adopt , the platform and
name the candidates for governor,
lieutenant governor, secretary of
state, state comptroller, attorney gen

for governor, W. R. Hearst, W. T.

New Orleans, Sept. rS. WTTTlam J.
Bryan, speaking here, defended his
right to express what opinion his con
science dictated on the government
ownership of railroads. He alsc
touched upon the Cuban situation,
saying: "Because there is an insur
rection in Cuba I have beard some
people deny that Cubans can govern
themselves. I might say the same
thing myself If my memory did not
run back so far- that I remember the
time when there was civil war in this
country. I never heard anyone say
that because of this war the United
States could not govern itself."
Memphis, Tenn., Sept. 25. Mr.
Bryan was cordially greeted on his
arrival here. In his speech he said he
had carefully read the address deliv
ered by Secretary Shaw in Memphis
several days ago. He said that the
Republican leaders need.not .be afraid
of the Democrats on the tariff, ques
tion. Should the latter succeed to
power, the speaker believed, that a re
duction in the tariff would.be made,
but it would not be reduced to such an
extent as to cause the Republicans to
loae much sleep. .
A Case Where Proceedings In Court

"A big, burly fellow from the Michi

of $2,000 or $3,000 and who had man

Grouchy Was Solely to Blame FV-r
the Downfall of Napoleon.
Napoleon would have won the battle
of Waterloo had Grouchy prevented
the junction of the Prussians with the
English army,- because he would not
have had to fight two battles at once.
Few persons realize that the so called
battle of Waterloo was in reality a
double battle, somewhat like Jena and
Auerstadt. Napoleon fought one bat
tle at Waterloo 'against the English.
On the arrival of the Prussians he was
forced to go in person toward Planche
noit and there fight another battle
against the Prussian army, leaving to
Ney the conduct of the troops at Wa
terloo. It is a well known maxim In
war that a very great or decisive vic
tory cannot be gained unless one com
mander makes a serious blunder of
which the other takes immediate ad
vantage. It is very evident that the
fact of the emperor having to fight
two battles at once instead of concen
trating his attention on one alone enor
mously increased the possibility of a
mistake. Moreover, Napoleon did not
have the able lieutenants of his former
campaigns. Desaix, Kleber, Lannes
and Bessieres were dead, Massena and
Macdonald had taken the oath of alle
giance to the Bourbons, and Murat had
split with the emperor. Napoleon's
personal attention was therefore im
perative. To Grouchy alone all blame
must be attributed, for had he prevent
ed the union of the Prussians with the
English the emperor would have had
to fight only one battle at a time and
could have given his entire personal
attention to that one battle.
