That was a saying oi a wise oia clergyman woo Knew that marriage was a partnership in the broadest sense, and that there can be no success in any partnership in which the partners do not contribute equally to make , . . -r . I ' ' I- r success posBiuie. rur mis, u iur no other reason, every man who is trying to climb the ladder ot success should be interested in his wife's health. A healthy woman is always helpful. A tired, nervous woman, depleted in strength and depressed in mind, can contribute neither mentally nor physically to a husband's success. The remarkable edy, Dr. Pierce's Favor ite Prescription, so strengthens the organs eculiarly feminine, ries up debilitating drains, heals ulcerations and inflammations, and cures female trouble, that tue causes of Ul- health are thus entirely removed, and the healthy, happy wife becomes a genuine help-meet to the husband. " I was sick for twelve years, and for two years I had to stop work altogether," writes Mrs. Bell McCrobie, of Oakland, Garrett Co., Maryland. " I was treated bv five different physicians, who pronounced my case Briglit's disease, impover- lancu cunumun oi ine Diooa, ana uicnnc iruuoie. I suffered a great deal with pain in both sides anu mucn icnucrncps in pressing over uic womn. I was bloated at times in bowels and limbs. Was troubled with a disagreeable discharge from the internal organs. I could not sleep and was troubled with palpitation of the heart. Suf fered a irreat deal of pain in mv head, temples. forehead and eyes, and I also suffered excruciat ing pain at monthly periods. Since taking eleven bottles of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrio- tion, I have enjoyed better health than I had for more than twelve years previously, and have f amed in weight twenty-five pounds since tak ug your medicines." Sick women can consult Dr. R. V. Pierce by letter, addressed to Buffalo. N. Y., abso lutely without charge. Each letter is read in private, its statements held in sacred confidence, and all answers are mailed, sealed in plain envelopes, without adver tising or other printed matter. It i9 a good thing to keep Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets in the house. One Pellet is a laxative, two a cathartic dose. SCREENS. Door and Window. Piazza Work and Door Hoods.
