Here ?re The Facts Judge For Yourself.
Busybodies who see in success only falsity, who, without making an effort to
inform themselves, blatantly cry offense against honesty and truth--seen to forget
that a slur against Dr. Pierce's well-known non-alcoholic family remedies is a slur
against the intelligence of thousands of clear-thinking American women who
know they have been helped and cured by Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It
is not a "palent medicine'" in the true meaning of the word-it is simply the
favorite remedy which Dr. Pierce used in an extended practice fuir the treatment
of the diseases of women.
Truth and nflunce. A namne for honesty and square dealing is better
Truth and Influen than great riches. Fraud is a bubble that soon
bursts. I)r. R. V. Pierce has always been known to
speak the truth--is fam:ous medicines are founded on the rock of public approval
and :have thoiisalds of truthful testiumonials as to their abiity te cure dliseases
for hidch they are recounended.
No nl an ever lost a prospective ctasto:ecr through
[7True Speaking, telling the truth. In the long run Dr. Pierce believes
the truth will prevail and he is therefore not afraid to
inake public hi; formula.

Statistics gathered by various

twitchings of mild chorea, or St. Vitus'

overcome by proper food, sufficient
sleep, and Dr. Caldwell's (laxative)
Syrup Pepsin. It is a universal chil

is eaten, it insures that the food is
properly digested and indigestion and
nerve poisons properly thrown out.
It is pleasant to take, and safe and
sure in results. Try it. Sold by al
druggists at 50c and $1.00. Money

FIVE A LUCKY NUMBER,
'Universal Favorite With Those Whe
Throw the Dice.
"Dice seems to have a fancy for
fives," said a clerk in a cigar store.
"We get sets of them frequently thatr
show many more fives than any other
number. We call it running to five(s.
The players seem to know this, and
they nearly always select fives when
they begin to roll. I have never sec n

(itrstand why this is. It is a fact,
"The five and six side s of a dice
should be the least frequently thrown.
for they are lighter, having more
holes, but this does not seem to make
any diff( rence. The fives keep on
coming just the same.
"Of con lre, if one numtber shows
oftnert than alother it m ans that
the (lice are not piroplerly made; but
it does seem curious that thlis irreg!

Cortelyou's Recreation the Piano.
Postmaster General Cortelyou is one
of the finest amateur puinists in the
country. Indeed, at one period in his
life he seriously considered making
music his profession. Whenever the
cares of his office have proved unusu
ally heavy he goes to his den and sits
down at the piano in the dark. Mrs.
Cortelyou knows when he is beginning
to forget his official troubles, for then
he ceases the minor strains with
which he always begins and passes to
more lively music, generally finishing
with a triumphant march. Mr. Cortel
you finds the same stimclus and r-e
freshment in music that other men
find in drink, drugs or long walks.
Princess cf Wales as Art Patron.
The most regular visitor to the art
galleries of London is the Princess of
W\ales, who mikes a point of seeing
all the proprietary exhibitions as well
as the "one man" shows. The prin

in these little visits, which are made
as much for her own pleasure as for
the sake of giving encouragement to
the native artists. As a general rule
her highness makes purchases of wa

own homes and she is a constant pa
tron of several miniaturists, who have
produced for her quite a large number
of portraits of her own children.
