Superintendent Bailey, of the local company, has received a request from the editor of "Telephony," an electrical publication of Chicago ask ing him to forward photographs of the work of stringing the conduits by the electric motor, in view of the fact that Richmond was one of the first cities In the United States, wherein the motor was used in such work.

Dr. Pierce alleged that Mr. Bok, the editor, maliciously published the arti cle containing such false and defama tory matter with th intent of injur ing hi business; furthermore, that no alcohol, or other Injurious, or Jiabit- lorming, drugs are, or ever were, contained in his Favorite Prescrip tion '; that said medicine is made from native medicinal roots and contain no harmful ingredients whatever, and that Mr. Bole's malicious statements were wholly and absolutely false. In the retraction printed by said Journal they were forced to acknowl edge that they had obtained analyses of Favorite Prescription," from eminent chemists, all of whom certi fied that It did not contain alcohol or any of the alleged harmful drugs I These facts also cam ont in the trial of the action in the Supreme Court. But the business of Dr. Pierce was greatly injured from the effect of the publication of the original libel with its great dis play headings, while hundreds of thou sands who read the original wickedly aeiamatory article never saw the hum ble groveling retraction, set in small type and made as inconspicuous as pos sible. The matter was, however brought before a jury in the Supreme Court of ew loric mate which promptly ren dered a verdict in the Doctor s favor. Th-as his traducers came to grief. Their base slanders were refuted and they were obliged to "eat humble pie." During the trial of the libel suit Dr. Lee H. Smith, Vice-President of the World's DispensaryMedical Association, rtated undr oath that the ingredients of Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription were wholly extracted from the follow ing native roots; Golden Seal, Bine Cohosh, Lady's Slipper, Black Cohosh 2nd Unicorn by means of pure glycerine proper strength.
