No joy or pleasure on this earth quite
equals that which comes into the home
when hahy arrives. Who can describe
the happiness of man and woman, joined
in wedlock, as they look upon the fragile,
delicate mite that'is blood of their blood
nnd flesh of their flrsh? And who can
dfpict the hopelessness anil dejection
that hover about the home where the
wife is incapable of becoming a mother?
Harrenness proceeds from some derange
ment of the distinctly feminine organs.
Many of the common 'ailments known as
"female troubles" cause it. Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription overcomes barren
ness by stamping out diseases of women,
anl by healing and cnrini; ulceration. It
tones up the system, stops drains, ami
restores strength. During gestation it
modifies morning sickness, gives elastic
ity to the overstrained parts concerned,
makes the hour of baby's coming short
and almost painless, and gives wonderful
recuperative power to the patient, 55v
making the mother strong and cheerful,
it makes the little one healthy, vigorous
and good natured. Insist upon the med
icine dealer giving you Dr. Pierce's Fa
vorite Prescription when you ask for it.
Substitutes are often dangerous.

concerned. Kvi-n finger rugs do not es

"Having picked out pome man standing
eittlelly in a i-rawd, the 'dip' takes Ills po
sition directly In front of him, and his
pal, if ho has any. line up In front of
the lender. Ho then rpihtly puts his
hands behind his hack and proceeds as

If ho succeeds, passes the watch ahead.
If he ownot umiiap it, he U-eaks tho
chain, or takes watch, chain and all.
"To tnkii a watch fiom a man moving

the She.vlins weio the llrst pickpockets

victim's nervous system. If jou approach

ly oil tho shoulder or fall against him so
as to touch only the upper part of his
body, all the nerves seem to cencentrnte
their sensibility at the point where, you
strike him, and for a few seconds the
nt. so of feeling Is not very keen in any
other pu t of tho body. It Is during tlws'o
few secmils that the professional 'dip'
lelleves you of your property. If It Is
your witch he simply gives the chain
what Is known as tho 'two-linger twist'
a ttlek that will break the stiongvn
"Hut tlu-ro Is another method. The
'dip' walks along by your side. Win 11 your
attention is directed elsewhero ho quick
ly and skillfully reai bus over and gin s
your chain the same twist and with e.
nelly the sanio insult. A very nervy and
skillful 'dip' has been known to walk be
tween two men and take- a watch tiom
i-acn at t ho same time.
THIS "TWO-FINGKR TWIST.
"The 'two-flngor twist," Invented by
Chicago pickpockets, is very hard to ex
plain, and must be seen to he thoroughly
understood. In all his operations tho 'dip'
u-es only his thumb and two largo linger",
in breaking tho chain he simply gives It
rue wind around the Index finger and thru
around the next linger, holding Hie watch
.In the palm of his hand. A epilck, dexter
lious Jerk of tho Ilt.MTS separates tho
, strongest chiln.
I '"I he female plckiocket, owing to her
light touch and endless opportunities, is
far ni-iro dsngeious than her main nials.
A female pickpocket Is generally an aban
doned womnu or a great ill rt, and thus
has many opportunities, Slit Is up to all
I the latest tricks, such as subsllluting a
ivnd of paper for a wad of bills, or replac
ing a diamond stud with a fako one. in
either tare the poor dupe does not as a
