Tbe cover design is quite attractive there being a pho tographic reproduction of the Virginia building at St. Louis, on tbe front, and on tbe back, a copy. in color, of tbe famous painting, "The Flower."

Senator Kearns of Utah, who retires j March 4, delivered in cthe senate on February 28, a bitter speech against the Mormon church. Senator Kearus addressed the senate concerning the anti polygamy resolution introduced by Mr. Dubois of Idaho. The Wash ington correspondent for the Chicago Record-Herald says: "Senator Reams declared that the Mormon leaders had broken every pledge they made when Utah was given statehood, and accused President Smith of the church with setting up a monarchical institution within the republic. It is the duty of the senate of th 6 United States to serve notice on this church monarchy that it must live withiu the laws, that the na tion is supreme and that the compact on which statehood was granted must be preserved inviolate,' he declared. Senator Kearns recited the pledges given by the people of Utah, as fol lows: "That the Mormon leaders would live withiu the laws pertaining to plural marriage and tbe continued plural marriage relation and that they would enforce this obligation upon all of their followers, under penalty of dis- j fellowship. That the leaders of the Mormon church would no longer exer cise political sway, and that their fol lowers would be free and would exer cise their freedom in politics, in bufi nesß and in social affairs.' Continuing, he said: "Utah secured her statehood by a solemn compact made by the Mor mon leaders in behalf of themselves and their people. That compact has been broken wilfuily and frequently.'. Religion, declared Mr. Kearns, is notj involved, and he passed to a denuuica tion of President Smith, whom he ac cuses of building up a business mon opoly through the power of the tithes from all the Mormons in the world, tbe annual income being $1,u00,U00. The social autocracy of Smith, he said, had now reached its highest point and the president of tbe church had affected a regal state. 'Parties are nothiug to these leaders, except as parties may be used by them,' declared Mr. Kearns. Kb can be elected to congress ] their wish.'

He bad so many suspicious protuberances that tbe manager called a policeman aud tbe guest was taken back to his room and searched. Wrapped around his body they »d the blankets. Four pillow oases led his calves. Two pairs of sheets were folded on his chest. A large bedspread filled up tbe hollow of bis back and his arms were swollen with towels. In bis pockets were half a dozen cakes of soap and the soap dish. The manager was relieved to find bed and bureau in place. The old man was hurried to police headquarters. There they found that his name was Samuel J. Koenigan.aod his picture, which had been in the rogues gallery for twenty years, was numbered 157.

She can occupy almost any business position or profession, and yet the popular view of womanhood is that she best fits the posi tion of wife and mother and head of the household. Every girl should know her breart and also know that her womanly system is equal to the strain of marriage. If a girl is nervous and irritable ten chances to one it is duo to sonic trouble peculiar to womanhood. Cupid has no place in a girl's heart if she is nervous and irritable, feels dragged down, worn out for no reason that she can think of. The weak back, dizzy spells and black circles about the eyes are only symp toms. Go to the source of the trouble and correct the irregularity. Stop the drains ! on the womanly system and the other symptoms will disappear. T!iis can be done easily and intelligently. So sure of it is the World's Dispensary Medical Asso ciation, the proprietors of Dr. Pierces Fa- ' vorite Prescription, that they offer $500 reward for women who cannot be cured of leucorrhea, female weakness, prolapsus, or falling of the womb. All they ask is a fair and reasonable trial of their means of cure. "After confinement I gained no strength," writes Mrs. A. Davis, of Sweetwater, Ala. « Even : ■when my baby was a month old I could hardly do any work. I don't know what to call the disease. I had a weak feeling in the pit of my stomach, felt miserable all over. I was sick three months and a lady friend told me to try Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription as it had done her so much good. I did so. and alter taking three bottles was cured. This was about five years ago and I have had 110 return of the dis ease. Am very thankful for the remedy. I I cannot praise your ' Favorite Prescription' ! enough. It is a wonderful medicine for women." j Dr. Pierces Pelleta are gently laxative. BIG FURNITURE SALE!
