If any woman who is suffering with any ailment peculiar to her sex will ask her neighbors this question, she will be surprised at the result. There is hardly a community in this country where women cannot be found who have been restored to health by this famous old remedy, made exclusively from a simple formula of roots and herbs. During the past 30 years we have published thousands ;of letters from these grateful women who have been cured by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and never in all that time have we published a testimonial without the writer's special permission. Never have we knowingly published a testimonial that was not truthful and genuine. - Here is one just received a few days ago. If anyone doubts that this is a true and honest statement of a woman's experi ence with Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound write and ask her. Houston, Teiasv When I first began taking Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound I was a total wreck. I had been Ick for three years with female troubles, chronic dyspepsia, and a liver trouble. I had tried several doctor's medicines, but nothing did me any good. For three years I lived on medicines and thought I would never get well, when I read an advertisment of Lydia K. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound, and was advised to try it, ' " My husband got me one bottle of the Compound, and it did me so much good I continued its use. I am now a well woman and enjoy the best of health. I advise all women suffering from such troubles to give Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial. Thev won't regret It, for it will surely cure you." Mrs. Bessie L. Hicks. 810 Cleveland SU, Houston. Any woman who is sick and suffering is foolish surely not to give such a medicine as this a trial. Why should it not do her as much good as it did Mrs. Hicks. Mrs. Thomas Hannan of West Pratt street, Indianapolis.

You ought to be ashamed to Democrats on County and Township Committee Will Recommend Defeat of Com mercial Interests Bill. COUNTY OFFICERS ARE ALSO OPPOSING BILL So Bold Have These Lobby ists Become That the Lieu tenant Governor Ordered Them Off the Floor. ralladium Bureau., Indianapolis, Jan. 27. Senators Ranke, of Fort Wayne and Benz, of English, the only two demo crats on the senate committee on county and township business, decid ed last night that they would sign a minority report against the merchants bill for a uniform system of bookkeep ing in county offices and for a state inspection of the accounts of such of fices. All the other members of the committee signified their intention to sign a report favoring the passage of the bill, and just why the two demo cratic members of the committee re fuse to sign such a report is not known. The democratic state plat form had a plank favoring the pas sage of such a law and Governor Mar shall made such a recommendation in his message to the legislature, so it looks strange that the democratic members of the committee would stand out against It, County Officers Oppose. Although ' the bill has the almost unanimous support of the merchants of" the state and ofthe Commercial clubs and business organizations in all the cities it is opposed by many of the county officers and they are lobbying against it with all their force and strength. County clerks, sheriffs recorders, auditors and others are here from all over the state nearly all the time arguing with . the mem bers of the legislature in opposition to the bill. So bold have these lobby Ists become, in fact,: that Lieutenant Governor Hall was obliged yesterday to order everyfcodytJff Xhe floor of the senate who was not a member, an employe or a working newspaper man. Lobbyists had- taken possession of the floor and had become a nuis ance. And it was a fact, too, that nearly all of the lobbyists have been working against the merchants hill for uniform bookkeeping and clean meth ods in county offices and on one side or the other of the numerous court fights that have been In progress. But frhen Lieutenant Governor Hall order ed them off the floor there was a scatterment and they have not been back. Bland Fathers Bill. The merchants bill was introduced In the senate by Senator Bland. Sen ator Klin g, of Peru, also Introduced a bill along the same lines, hut when the committee met he announced that he would waive his bill and sign a re port for the passage of the Bland bill Senator Fleming, of Fort Wayne Introduced an Innocent looking little bill of about a dozen lines the other day that is arousing some comment. The bill provides that any corpora tion Jncorporated under the laws of In dlana may increase or decrease the number of shares of its canital stock on a vote of two-thirds of its stock holders. This looks fair enough on Its face, but here is the point: Th law at the present time says that corporation may increase or decrease its capital stock only on a vote of four-fifths of its stockholders and majority of its directors, and then on ly after thje company has purchased the stock of those stockholders who object to such increase This strin gent provision is in the law to prevent majority stockholders from freeziu out the minority fellows, .. Fleming Bill "Queer." tt is said by those who have looked into the matter that under- the Flem ing bill two-thirds of the stockholders In a corporation could Increase the capital stock of a corporation wheth er the rest of them like it or not and thus It is said the big fellows could freeze out the little ones. Several of the members are looking cross-eyed at the Fleming bill. The house committee on labor de cided to report favorably on the bill requiring that whenever an advertise ment is printed offering employment to men the advertisement shall tell If the men are wanted to fill the place of strikers." This will bs amended also so as to provide that advertisements sent out by employment agencies shall give t!:e same information. Against Loan Sharks. A strong effort is being made at this session of the legislature to enact a law that will put the loan sharks out of business. These leeches who have for years sucked the very life out of many a poor unfortunate tjave always been ab'e heretofore to head off any legislation on the subject, but there sems a determination this time to do, something with them. At the request of the Indiana Manufacturers Bureau Senator McCullough has In troduced a bill which provides that no assignment of future wagea shall be valid unless the assignment is 1 agreed to by the employer of the per- GET BUSY ONLY THREE MORE DAYS Of the most successful Everything Reduced Clearance Sale in our en tire business experience ....

No as signment of future wages by a mar ried man even with the consent of bis employer shall be valid unless the as signment Is signed also by, the wife of the man making it. This applies to all assignments where the sum involv ed is less than $200. It is believed that this bill would put an end to the loan shark business in this state.
