With Exception of One Elec

Two Factions
The local election here Tuesday
passed off quielly. There was rather
intense feeling but nothing of an ex
citing character, though party workers
kept busy all day. A large vote was
polled, larger indeed than was antici
pated; because there were not the us
ual simes of war brought into play
that have beeu in evidence according
leiwrt, at other times. Votes of
rse were not bought, and as for
t other argument which is said to
found in a bottle there was abso
lutely noae.
The fight seemed to be a square wet
and dry fight. Early in the day ar
guments to catch the wet and dry
votes were floating about. At any
rate that species of argument was the
principal one.
The First Ward very nearly elected
the Independent ticket, Mr. John
Crosby being the only one of tlie Pri
mary ticket to get through there, beat
ing Mr. W. G. Moffatt 30 votes. The
second ward elected the whole primary

The verdict was announced at 10:10,
after the jurors had deliberated J for
twelve hours,niiuus fourteen minutes.
They had labored earnestly from time
to time sending out for transcripts of
the testimony, particularly that re

ballots were taken.

Women s Secrets
There is one man in the United States who has perhaps heard
more women's secrets than any other man or woman in the
country. These secrets are not secrets of guilt or shame, but
the secrets of suffering, and they have been confided to Dr. •
R. Y. Pierce in the hope and expectation of advice and help.
That few of these women have been disappointed in their ex
pectations a, proved by the fact that ninety-eight per cent, ci
all women treated by Dr. Pierce have been absolutely and
altogether cured. Such a record would be remarkable if the
cases treated were numbered by hundreds only. But when
that record applies to the treatment of more than half-a- mil
lion women, in a practice of over 40 years, it is phenomenal,
tcsi entitles Dr. Pierce to the gratitude-accorded him by women, as the first of
i,>ec : :.lists in the treatment of women's diseases.
Every sick woman may consult Dr. Pierce by letter, absolutely without
charge. All replies are mailed, sealed in perfectly plain envelopes, without
any printing or advertising whatever, upon them. Write without fear as with
