•■C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass.:
•‘Dear Sirs: I gladly testify to the efficacy
and curative powers of Hood’s Sarsaparilla and

from agonizing headaches and
Distress in the Stomach

sour stomach. I was very bad with indigestion
also. I noticed in different papers men

Accomplished the Desired Results.
The pain and distress in the stomach and the

All In a Tremble!
Nervous, elderly ladies use this phrase to
describe their tremors, and highly graphic it
is. Nerves “all in a tremble” arc best tran
quillized and strengthened with Hostetter’s
Stomach Bitters. The Bitters is a nervine

is what the nerves require if they are weak
and shakv. Digestion and assimilation are
insured by it, and it remedies constipation,
biliousness and malaria.

From away up in British North America
comes the following greeting to Dr. R. V.
Pierce, Chief Consulting Physician to the
Invalids’ Hotel and Surgical Institute, nt
Buffalo, N. Y. Mrs. Allen Sharrard, of
Hartney, Selkirk Co., Manitoba, whose
portrait, with that of her little boy,
heads this article, writes as follows:
“ I take great pleasure in recommending Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription for ‘ falling of
the womb.’ I was troubled with bearing
down pains and pains in my back whenever
I would be on mv feet any length of time. I
was recommended to try Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription, which I did with happy results.
I feel like a new person after taking three
bottles of it.”
As we have just heard from the frigid
North, we will now introduce a letter
received from the Sunny South. The follow
ing is from Mrs. J. T. Smith, of Oakfuskee,
Cleburne Co., Ala. She writes; “I was
afflicted and suffered untold pains and
misery, such as no pen can describe, for six
years. I was confined to bed most of the
time. I expected the cold hand of death
every day. J was afflicted with leucorrhea—
with excessive flowing—falling of the womb
—bearing down sensation—pain in the small
of my back—my bowels costive—smarting,
itching and burning in the vagina, also pal
pitation of the heart. When I began taking
your medicine I could not sit up, only a few
minutes at a time, I was so weak. I took
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription three
times per'Y y, I also took his ‘ Golden Medical
Discovery ’ three times per day and one of
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets every night. I
have taken seven bottles of the ‘ Discovery,’
seven bottles of the ‘ Prescription ’ and five
bottles of the 1 Pellets.’ I took these medi
cines seven months, regularly, never missed
o day. These medicines cured me. I feel as
■well as I ever did in my life. Four of the
best doctors in the land treated my case four
years. They all gave me up as hopeless—
they said I could not bo cured, and could not
live. Through the will of God, and your
medicines, l havo been restored to the best
of health.” Yours truly,
Mrs. W. O. Gunekel, of No. 1461 South
Seventh ■Street, Terre Haute, Indiana, writes:
“ I had been suffering from womb trouble for
eight years having doctored with the most
skillful physicians, but. finding only tempo
rary relief from medicines prescribed by
them. 1 was advised by a friend to take
Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription, which I
did, and found, in taking six bottles of the
‘ Prescription ’ and two of the ‘ Golden
Medical Discovery,’ that it has effected a
positive cure, for which words cannot ex
press my gratitude for the relief from tho
great suffering that I so long endured.”
As a powerful, invigorating, restorative
tonic “Favorite Prescription ” improves
digestion and nutrition thereby building up
solid, wholesome flesh, and increasing the
strength of the whole system. As a soothing
and strengthening nervine “ Favorite Pre
scription ” is unequaled and is invaluable in
allaying and subduing nervous excitability,
irritability, nervous exhaustion, nervous
prostration, neuralgia, hysteria, spasms.
Chorea, or St. Vitus’s Dance, and other dis
tressing, nervous symptoms commonly atten
dant upon functional and organic dise--.se of
the womb. It induces refreshing sleep and
relieves mental anxiety and despondency.
Even insanity, when dependent upon womb
disease, is cured by it.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is a
scientific medicine, carefully compounded by
an experienced and skillful physician, and
adapted to woman's delicate organization. It
is purely vegetable in its composition and
perfectly harmless in its effects in any condi
tion of the system. For morning sickness, or
nausea, due to pregnancy, weak stomach, in
digestion, dyspepsia and kindred symptoms,
its use will prove very beneficial.

Stood gazing with eager, hungry stare
Through a restaurant's big show window,

THE GREAT RCACTION.
Vthft One Tear of Uemocratlo Rule H»»
The democrats are trying to console
themselves in their present season of
adversity with the familiar theory that
an administration is generally weak in
its second year, owing to the ordinary
circumstances attending the work of
adapting itself to the work,that it has
to perform. Such an explanation will
not answer in this case, however. The
prevailing reaction against the party
in power is not simply the result of
causes that are repeated at regular in
tervals and that have only a super
ficial and temporary significance. It
implies a general feeling of dissatisfac
tion with democratic rule. A year's
experience has satisfied the couutry
that a monstrous mistake was made
when the republican party was de
feated and a new system of political
doctrines and policies introduced. It
will not do to say that the wave of dis
pleasure which is now rolling over the
country represents an impulsive and
transient sentiment, and one that is
likely to spend its force in a short time
and leave things as they were when the
votes were counted in 1892. The proof
to the contrary is plain and conclusive.
There has never before been such a
pronounced reversal of opinion with
regard to the principles and purposes
of a party. It extends all over the
country, and the form of its manifesta
tion is such that its meaning cannot
possibly be mistaken.
When the democratic party took con
trol of public affairs the people were
inclined to believe that it would im
prove its chances of usefulness and
strive to justify the confidence reposed
in it by those who had voted its ticket.
Hut it was a disappointment from the
first In not a single respect has it
come up to its promises or made proper
use of its opportunities. Instead of
pursuing a judicious and sensible
course, it has acted in a persistently
foolish and reckless manner. All of its
performances have tended to discredit
its capacity and to show that it is seri
ously lacking in honesty and consist*
You, Sum Gossage,
You skin of a sausage,
You talked that way, you cussed fool.
Tried to teach a dimycrat school,
Dished up lies 'at'd stop a clock.
Blinded the miners with free trade talk,
Told 'em silver'd bulge ahead.
Gold be wuthless as so much lead,
Pay'd be doubled in every mine—
Holy Gosh, but you spun it fine!
Started the boys on a wild stampede—
You. you ol' buck, takin’ the lead—
Over the fence got the gang to jump;
Look at you now, you chump!
“ Did you ketch a whiff.
You durned ol’ stiff,
O' the good things a-cookin' back In thar'
W'en that feller swung the door ajar?
Did you smell the cabbage an' luscious beef
That could durn soon make you let out the
You tuk in your breeches w'en you found
Yourself so thin they'd go twice around?
Did you smell it, I say,
You free trade jay?
Well, smell it ag’in. I wish to the Lord
You was chained right here to an iron rod
With your nose so clus to the door you'd git
A sniff every time they opened it;
Stay here till your stomach was shrunk until
'T d strain it to chamber a liver pill,
Jest smellin' an’ yearnin' by day an' night,
An’ never gittin' a cussed bite.
'T'd sarve you right!

An' goin' a-flshin', but you kin bet
If he bobs till doomsday he'll never get
As hefty a ketch as that he took
W'en the bug o' reform was on his hook.
Nary a game fish could he show,
Jest cranky suckers 'at didn't know
Enough to stay in Protection's pool,
Whar' the water was alius clear an' cool,
An’ you was one of 'em. too, you chump,
One o’ the suckers 'at had to jump
At the pizen bug 'at you thought was good
Enough for sorehead republican food.
You swailered it, too,
An' the next thing you

With the hook In your gills, you measly crank.
•• Wat are you grittin’ fur all you done!
Wat’s the result o’ the fight you won?
Mills all idle an' mines shet down,
Grass a-growin’ In every town,
Men a-loafin' on every hand,
Hard times stranglin’ the hull wide land.
Banks a-bustin' an’ trade heels up,
Labor cramped like a pizened pvp.
Homes but prisons o' woe an’ want,
Wbar1 wan-faced pris'ners weak an' gaunt
Shiver an' hunger from morn till night,
Lyes all lusterless once so bright.
That's what you got
Fur the change you sought

You flopped, an’ you’re gettin' your reward.

Right whar' the chicken got the ax”

ency. It has clone nothing whatever to
promote the welfare of any section
or any class. Every move that it has
made has been disadvantageous to the
people. It found the times good, and
it made them bad. There is no hint of
profit in any of its schemes of legisla
tion. It has been tried, and the result
is entirely unsatisfactory, with no
prospect of anything better. If it had
met public expectation even in point of
honest, but unsuccessful, effort to re
deem its pledges, there would be some
reason for viewing it with indulgence
and waiting for it to improve its con
duct; but, as a matter of fact, it has
failed beyond that point of extenua
tion. There is not a word to be said in
its favor. The story of its attempt to
govern the country is one of utter and
unprecedented incompeteDcy and un
faithfulness; and the reaction against
it is not for a day, but for all time.—

was small in each case. In ls>94, how
