The Judgment in Fuvor
of the
Actress HeverKed.
The court of appeals yesterday after
noon handed down iu opinion, prepared by
Chief Justice Alvey, iu the casCiPf Mary.,
Sanders Winter against Ricnard Mansfield,
reversing the judgment ot tlie trial court.
The verdict in the lower court was In
favor of Mrs. Winter. Shu was awarded
$1,300 in December last, as balance due
under a contract for her services as an
actress, which contract she claimed to
have been broken by Mansfield without
Mrs. Winter brought suit In December
last, for the breach of contract Tor
the theatrical season of 1895-ilG, the al
legation being that alter contracting to
pay her at tlie rate of $75 per wook for
professional services, Mr. Mansfield, with
out cause or justification, disinl.si.cd Jier
from liis company.
It was also charged that, in the way
of compromise, the defendant agreed to
pay Mrs. Whiter $1,350, in weekly, install
ments or ?50 each. This agreement was
but partially carried out, and the suit
was to exact a full satisfaction of tlie
obligation, the amount claimed being
$1,300, with interest from December 31,
'1 lie defense was that no such contract
existed, and that Mr. Mansfield was not
indebted to Mrs. Winter.
The court or appeals, in its review of
the case, decides that the only cause of
action was the refusal or Mr. Mansfield
to pay the two installments due December
21 and 28, respectively, and that $100
was the sum that should have been sued
for. The court says tli.it the installments
thus due were not sufficient to maintain
the Jurisdiction of the lower court, and
the subsequent installments becoming due
after tlie bringing ot the action could not
be included in the recovery, or reckoned
a part cr the claimant's claim.
Tlie case was tried by jury iu the lower
court, and judgment rendered In favor of
Mrs. Whiter ror tlie full amount of her
claim. The court or appeals renin tided the
case for isuch proceedings as will not be
inconsistent with the opinion rendered.

n Divorce.

Mrs. Hogan allege.1! that at the time she
ivas mairied to tlie defendant, April 4,
1S80, she was employed in the Treasury
Depaitmcnt, at n salary or $000, which
employment she then relinquished. Within
ii month after their marriage, she says, her
husband began a system of brutal treat
ment of her, las whole purpose being, as
she believes, to secure wlint property she
had, and to separate her irom her children
by a foimer husband. She alleges, also,
that he lefused, during tlie time they re
sided together, to allow her any money
whatever for personalexpenses, and attimes
kept tier locked in a loom away from tier
children, lie also refused to call a physi
cian during her Illness. The defendant was
constantly demanding money-of her, she
declared, which she was unable to give
him, and acted in a mnnner altogether

Every day engagements are entered into,
and marriages are made between people
who havejno business to be married. Wo
men enter into the most serious obligation
of life without the proper physical equip
ment for it. When a woman marries, she
tacitlj' makes the declaration that she means
to become the mother of children. This
declaration ought also to mean that she is
physically able to perform what she under
takes. The bearing of a child is all too fre
quently an injustice to both mother and
child. The woman who expects to bear in
tellectual and physically healthy children,
should be herself in strong and vigorous
health. The organs that make her a woman
should be free from any taint of disease or
weakness. If they are not, the child will
have a bare chance for health, and the
mother may easily make herself a weak,
nervous, semi-invalid for the rest of her life.
Female weakness of any kind whether he
reditary or acquired may be cured by the
right sort of treatment Dr. Pierce's Favor
ite Prescription is designed for the treat
ment and cure of just this one class of dis
eases nnd no other. It works in a perfectly
rational way directly on the organs affected.

parturition will be comparatively safe snd
The "Favorite Prescription" is not a cure-all,
and if the general svstcm is run-down, Doctor
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery should be
taken in connection with the " Favorite Prescrip
tion." These two medicines -together have the
most wonderful influence on a woman's health.
