Or. do you want to know something of the com position and character of that which you take into your stomach whether as food or medicine? Most intelligent and sensible people now-a-days insist on knowing what they employ whether as food or as medicine. Dr. Pierce believes they 'have a perfect right ? to INSIST upon such knowledge. So he pub lishes, broadcast and on each bottle=wrap= per, what has medicines are made of and veri= fies at under oath. This he feels he can wefll afford to do, because the more the ingre= dients of which his medicines are made are studied and understood the more will their superior curative virtues be appreciated. For the cure of woman's peculiar weaknesses and derangements, giving rise to frequent headache, backache, dragging-down pain or distress and kindred symptoms of weakness, Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is a most efficient remedy. It is equally effective in giving strength to nursing mothers and in preparing the system of the expectant mother for baby's coming, thus rendering childbirth safe and comparatively painless. The "Fa vorite Prescription" is a most potent, strengthening tonic to the general system and to the organs distinctly feminine in particular. It is also a soothing and invigorating nerv ine and cures nervous exhaustion, nervous prostration, neuralgia, hysteria, spasms, chorea or St. Vitus' dance, and other distressing nervous symptoms attendant upon functional and organic diseases of the distinctly feminine organs. A host of medical authorities of all the several schools of practice recommend each of the several ingredients of which "Favorite Prescription'' is made for the cure of the diseases for which it is claimed to be a cure. You may read what they say for yourself by sending a postal card request for a free booklet of extracts from the leading authorities, to Dr. R. V. Pierce, Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y., and it will come to you by return post. It's foolish and often dangerous to experiment with new or but slightly tested medi cines?sometimes urged upon the afflicted as "just as good" or better than "Favorite Pre scription." The dishonest dealer sometimes insists that he knows what the proffered sub stitute is made of, but you don't, and it is decidedly for your interest that you should know what you are taking into your stomach and system expecting it to act as a curative. To him it's only a difference of profit. Therefore, insist on having Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.

Mr. Bell rode Arlington atid it was a great race. Four-Mile Course. Arlington was raced as an entry from I the Pontiac stables, and Mr. Bell, who is one of the best gentleman riders about New York, wore his own colors. Th? course was four miles across a fair hunting country, and Arlington displayed the fact that he has the endurance to stand such a long chase with the best of hunters Besides the distance Arlington carried 1HT> pounds, which made his per formance all the more creditable. With the beautiful Rockaway cup hanu: j ing in the balance Arlington romped in [ first, closely followed by Mr. A. J. Dev ! ereaux's Sacandaga. with the owner up.
