In effect the brides gown was as
simple as it is possible for satin and
point lace to be, but in reality it was
one of the handsomest gowns ever worn
by a Topeka bride. It was of cream
white satin duehesse; around the bot
tom of the skirt, which was made with
a pronounced dip, was an accordion
pleated flounce, headed with a tiny
mousseline de soie ruche. A tunic over
skirt of exquisite point lace reached to
the flounce. The bodice was pointed in
front and round in the back; the sleeves
and yoke were of finely tucked mousse
line de soie. The bolero in front, and
inverted revers in the back, as well as
the finish at the neck and bottoms of
the sleeves were of point lace. A broad
scarf of white liberty silk, the floating
ends edeed with deep fringe, started
at the right bolero and was caught at
the left shoulder with a rhine stone
buckle. The only ornament was a whole
pearl and amethyst pendant, gift of the
groom. The point lace had been In the
Wagner family for years, and was a
gift to the bride from her mother as
was also the fan she carried; it was
appliqued in point lace and the sticks
were of mother of pearL She carried
Mrs. E. Bennett wore a handsome
costume of gray and white satin striped
challie; the yoke and collar were of
violet silk and the color was further
brought out by a touch of black velvet.
The yoke was partially veiled in point
lace and at the foot or tne yone was
bertha of point lace. The collar was
caught with a diamond pin. The lace
on Mrs. Bennett's gown was used on
her wedding dress.

of white silk mull, with black polka
dots and trimmed in black.

A POPULAR MISTAKE
Regarding; Remedies for Dyspepsia
The national disease of Americans is
indigestion or in its chronic form, dys
pepsia, and for the very reason that it
is so common many people neglect tak
ing proper treatment forwhat they con
sider trifling stomach trouble, when as
a matter of fact indigestion lays the
foundation for many Incurable diseases.
No person with a vigorous, healthy
stomach will fall a victim to consump
tion. Many kidney diseases and heart
troubles date their" beginning from poor
digestion: thin, nervous people are real
ly so because their stomachs are out
of gear; weary, languid, faded out
women owe their condition, to imper
When nearly every person you meet
is afflicted with weak digestion it is
not surprising that nearly every secret
patent medicine on the market claims
to be a cure for dyspepsia, as well as a
score of other troubles, when in fact,
as Dr. Werthier says, there is but one
genuine dyspepsia cure which ia per
fectly safe and reliable, and moreover,
this remedy is not a patent medicine,
but it is a scientific combination of
pure pepsin (free from animal matter),
vegetable essences, fruit salts and bis
muth. It is soid by druggists under
name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. No
extravagant claims are made for them,
but for indigestion or any stomach
trouble Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are
far ahead of any remedy yet discovered.
They act on the food eaten, no dieting
is necessary, simply eat all the whole
some food you want and these tablets
will digest it. A cure results, because
all the stomach needs is a rest, which
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets give by do-
ing the work of digestion.

commenced to take your medicine I
was in a terrible state, wishing myself
dead a good many times. Every part
of my body seemed to pain In some
way. At time of menstruation my
Buffering was something terrible. I
thought there was no cure for me, but
after taking several bottles of Lydia

my bad feelings were sjone. I am now
well and enjoying good health. I shall
always praise your medicine." Mbs.

' Dear Mbs. Piskham : I had female
trouble, painful menses, and kidney
complaint, also stomach trouble. About
a year ago I happened to pick tip a
paper that contained an advertisement
of Lydia E. Pinkham's "Vegetable Com
pound, and when I read how it had
helped others, I thought it might help
me, and decided to give it a trial. J
did so, and as a result am now feelipg
perfectly well. 1 wish to thank you for
the benefit your medicine has been to
me." Mbs. Ci.aba Stikbeb, Diller, Xeo.
No flore Pain
" Deab Mbs. Pinkham : Your "Vege
table Compound has been of much
benefit to me. When my menses first
ppeared they were very irregular.
They occurred too often and did not
leave for a week or more. I always
suffered at these times with terrible
pains in my back and abdomen. Would
be in bed for several days and would
not be exactly rational at times. I
took Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, and menses became regular
and pains left me entirely." Mga. E,
