How many beautiful young- girls de
velop into worn, listless and hopeless
women, simply because sufficient atten

development. No woman is exempt
from physical weakness and periodic
pain, and young girls just budding into
womanhood, should be carefully guided
physically as well as morally. Another
Miss Hannah E. Mershon, Col

"I thought I would write and tell
you that, by following your kind ad
vice, I feel like a new person. I was
always thin and delicate, and so weak
that I could hardly do anything. Men
struation was irregular. /
"I tried a bottle of your Vegetable
Compound and began to feel better
right away. I continued its use, and
ate now well and strong, and men

It has recently been discovered that
the germs that produce Malaria, breed
and multiply in the intestines and from
there spread throughout the system
by means of'the blood. This fact ex
plains why Malaria is hard to cure by
the old method of treatment. Quinine,
Iron, etc., stimulate the nerves and
build up theblood, but do not destroy
the germs that cause the disease.
Rydale's Tonic has a specific effect
upon the intestines and bowels, freeing
them from all disease breeding mi
crobes. It also kills the germs that
infest the veins and arteries. It drives
from the blood all poisonous matter
and makes it rich and healthy.

The resolution of Representative
Lilley instructing the secretary of

the hign price und scarcity ?f news
print paper and the causes which
have produced these conditions, was
the subject of discussion before
the house committee on judiciary.
Don C. Seif/, of the New York World,
and John Norris, business manager of
the New York Times, were heard.
Roth covered practically the same
ground in statements and the Inter
national Paper company and the Gen
eral Paper company had divided the
United States between them in the
control of the news print paper. The
International controlled all that sec
tion east of the Indiana lino and the
General company the territory west

was testified to, had raised the price

by his attorney, came into the United

spoke of the motions that had been

Evidently suppressing his emotions
with a strong effort, Senator Burton
stood leaning with both hands on a
chair back as he said:
"Your honor will pleaseallowme to
respectfully decline to say anything."
The court room was almost empty,
with the exception of a few persons
who had remained out of curiosity,
and the silence was almost opppres

At the conclusion of the sentence
Senator Burton, who had not taken
his eyes from the court and who had
scarcely moved as he supported him
self by ttie chair back, turned and sat
down, with his head bowed and his
eyes on the floor.^ His attorney,
Judge Krum, immediately Hied a bill
of exceptions in the case and offered a
