A woman may not be the slave of man, but where her affections are concerned [she is devoted to him and often over |tax<8 he.self thereby. A woman will often, without knowing it. commit slow suicide tdf her children. She will think, toil and shorten her life in their behalf. Tco often they do not ap preciate It. A woman should not allow her'fcolor tM fade, her cheeks to become sallow, her strength to be lost. She is designed for attractiveness and happiness. A woman need not allow any of these things to happen if she will only obey the ^ws of health and use the best means at her command for preserving it. A woman needs a friend upon whom she can rely, atid there* is no friend which eo surely aids her when $he is in need of aid as that great remedy. Warner s Safe Cure. A woman who has never learned this great truth, or who has failed to aA*ail herself of it. has lost a fine opportunity and is doubtless lees strong and attrac tive today than she deserves to be and might be. A woman who follows the best hints that ran be given her and who takes ad vantage of the latest discoveries of science for helping her is certain to live longer, appear more attractive, suffer less and enjoy more happiness than one who neglects her opportunities. CORBETT’S TRAINERS ARRESTED. There Seems to be Trouble Ahead for the Fighters, but they Don't Know What it is. San Antonio, Tex., Oct. 8.—Sheriff John P. Campbell today received from the sheriff of Travis county attachments for Jim Daly, Billy Delaney, Joe Corbett, John Donaldson and John McVeay. all members of Corbett's training party, subpoenaing them to appear before the district court grand Jury at Austin to morrow as witnesses. The attachments were served late this evening, and ail the witnesses left for Austin tonight. This new turn of affairs caused a sen sation at the Corbett training quarter, and much speculation was indulged in as to the object of the Austin court. The only members not subpoenaed are Jim Corbett anil Steve O'Donnell, and this fact makes it appear that the grand jury is seeking to bring an Indictment against the champion and O'Donnell. When asked what he thought of the action of the Austin court Corbett said: "I can not imagine what they want with my trainers as witnesses. We have certainly not violated any law. I regret that they must go to Austin, as It will set me back in my training. The only possible charge thai the grand jury can- bring against me is that I am a party to a conspiracy to bring off the fight with Fitzsimmons.” Continuing. Corbett said: "I received a telegram today from Brady stating that the prospects were that the fight would take place at Hot Springs. Ark., or New Mexico. 1 do not think that the fight' can be pulled off In any part of Arkansas, as Hot Springs is too near Chicago, and the governor has stated that there can be no fight in-that state.” It was learned tonight that the grand jury of the Travis county district court will seek to secure Indictments against Corbett. Fitzsimmons and Stuart on the authority of article 960, title 18. chapter 1, of the Texas penal code, which pro vides that a conspiracy entered^ito In this state for the purpose of committing any felony in any of the states or territo ries of the United States shall be pun ished in the same manner as if the con spiracy entered Into was to commit the felony in this state. In this state the penalty for such con spiracy by the Texas criminal code Is confinement In the penitentiary not less than two nor more than four years. “In time of peace prepare for war.” Leave your order in our tailor department for the overcoat you will need ere long.

BLACH & SONS, One Price Cash Clothiers, 1912—First Avenue-1914 RELIEF Invariably Found by the Use oi the Eleotropoise. Suffered Trom the Effects of La Grippe for Twelve Months—Cases That Cannot Be Doubled. I have thought sometime of writing you of my experience with the Electro poise, and my opinion of It. When I re ceived the Electropoise, more than two years ago, I was suffering with the ef fects of la grippe, and had been for about twelve months. Some of the time I was In bed and quite feeble, and gradually losing ground. Soon after applying the instrument 1 found relief, and I contin ued to Improve until I was restored, and now I am able to do as much work as I could three years ago. It has given me renewed energy and has built up my sys tem generally. I have seen It tested in cases of typhoid and malarial fevers, and cases of pneumonia, colic, flux, croup, colds, la grippe, Indigestion and rheuma tism, where not a dose of medicine was given, and have never failed in one sin gle case, while some of them the doctors had abandoned, saying they could do them no more good. We applied the Electropoise and from the beginning they began to Improve. These are cases that cannot be doubted and speak well for the Electropoise, as there are plenty of witnesses to testify. I have all faith In the Electropoise, and all my family use It on all occasions, and Invariably find relief. I am yours, with kind regards, JESSE W. PARKS. Fayetteville, June 1, 1895.
