Be tag atlU the legislative day of yester? day, the house of represenetatlves tov'ay for the most part devoted It ?elf to the consideration of bills un? der suspension of the rules. A num ber were passed, among them bolns Ihose requiring ' the eiiuipment of ocean going vessel* with wireless ap? paratus ami providing for the reor? ganization und enlistment of the na? val academy loud. The Indian appropriation bill, car? rying $11.571.otto, was psssed. A re cess wt's taken at ti:<Hi p. iu., until 11 o'clock tomorrow morning. C%C6> When thousands of women say that they have been cured of their ailments by a certain remedy, does this not prove the merit of that remedy ? Thousands of women have written the storv of their suffering, and have told how they were freed from it by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound ? for thirty years these reports have been published all over America. Without great merit this medicine could never have gained the largest sale of any remedy for woman's ills ? never could have become known and prized in nearly every country in the world. Can any woman let prejudice stand between her and that which will restore her health ? If you believe those who have tried it you know this medicine does cure. Read this letter from a grateful woman, then make up your mind to give* Mrs. Pinkham's medicine a chance to cure you. - ?Brooklyn, N. Y. ? " I am a firm believer in Lydia E. Pink? ham's Vegetable Compound. I was a great sufferer from organic female troubles for years, and almost despaired of ever being well again. I bad bearing-down pains, backache, headache and pains in my abdomen, and tried Mrs. Pinkham's Compound as a last resort. The result was astonishing, apd I have used it and advocated it ever since. It is a great boon to expectant mothers. I have often said that I should like to have Its merits thrown on the sky with a search-light so that women would read and be convinced that there is a remedy for their sufferings. M My husband joins me in its praise. He has used it for kidney trouble and been entirely cured."'Mrs. K. A. Bishop, 1915 Atlantic Ave., Brooklyn, N. Y. , For SO years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has been the standard remedy for female Ills. No sick woman does justice to herself who will not try this famous medicine. Made exclusively from roots and herbs, and has thousands of cures to its credit.

LEO THE M Foreign Movement of Large Sympa? thetic Effect?Austrian Loan of $70,000,000 Under Discussion Bonds Also Inclined to Drop. (By Associated Pres?.) N'BW YORK, P>u. I?.?The Htocfc markd today proved itself unready to follow ihe advance of yesterday and thus disappointed 'lie hopes of Ihe spec ulative ?dement which thought that the advance might be a prelude to a revival in the market. Iijter est fell away lo the vanishing point again today and the later hours of ihe session saw conditions as Stag j nanl as at any time last week. The London market led the way in this course, the tendency there being distinctly reactionary from yester? day's strength. As the foreign situa. lion was largely influenced in shap? ing speculative sentiment yesterday ! In .New York, the contrary movement there today was of Important sympa? thetic eft>et. The supply of new issues of bonds continues very large. The markets bad* under discussion today a 170,000,000 Austrian IdKn. an Irish land pun-base It.nn, a New York city $10,000,000 corporate tstock Isaue and a coming Burlington bond issue of probably $20.000,000 or upwards. Whether on account of the large prospective requirements or from mere sympathy with the tone of the market the send division today was Inclined to drop In a way that has not been in evidence for many days past. The heaviness of the Brio issue hud some Influence on ihls result. Kurther consideration of the terms prescribed by the public service com? mission on the proposed issue of $;10, 000.000 of Krie bonds left less cer? tainty as to the success of the plan. The insistent rumors of a coming cut in steel prices led to a thorough canvass of the authorities In the trade. This effectually disposed of ' the rumors, but gave little ground fori cheerfulness over trade conditions.
