The judje, in rendering the decision, said: "in view of the decisions UHn this sub ject, I feel perfectly at liberty to follow mv own iuuirment in mis case as an orig inal tpiestlor, and upon that I have not the least doubt that this action mainiuinaoie. It Is the failure of the husbaud to live with his wife, and his failure to support her adeniiatelv. which may be said to lie the direct result or the action of this de fendant, and there is an injury, also coupled with the direct damage, the spproxlin oe cause of the alienation of his affections by this woman; and I do not see why such au action cannot be maintained by a wuninii as well as a similar action could be main tained by a Irushand.

A lady friend living in Chic-ag, hearing of my allliction, wrote me, saying ; ' Try Atldophoros. It cured me,' " I was very gla I to try anything. I had tr'wd many dhTercnt scrts of medicines, but this was new to me. 1 sent nt once and bought a bottle nnd began using it. I had a terrible buzzing in my he-ad at first, but as it was said in the directions I would bnve this if the medicine took hold of the disease I stuck to it. The buzzing was nothing with my sufferings. I think it was cn a Monday evening T first began with the Athlophuroa. IJy the following Saturday the pain was nearly all gone, tho swelling was very much reduced, and with the aid of a pair of crutches I went out for the C r-st time in three months. ' I continued taking the Alhloiihoros nr.! il 1 h id used four bottles. My pain a 1 1 i swelling had then all gone, and 1 lire! no iur:hf-r iis for crutches. I have not frit any rheumatism since. Atldophoros is rt very valuable medicine. 1 recom mend it whenever I have a chance, and never want to be without some Athlopho- r s iri ihe bouse in case 1 should ever B"-:i!:i Ii' fio afllii led."'
