The house was crowded, and the United States charge d'affaires, Mr. White, and ether for eign reireseutatives were present .Sir Charles maintained that Mr. Chamberlain had su'ested a revolu tionary change In the government' policy, which was opposed to all the traditions and to the opinions of au overwhelming majority In parliament, lie considered that while the policy of the government as outlined at the re cent colonial conference was danger ous, It fell far short of the policy now suggested. l'remler Balfour prefaced his reply with the remark that Sir Charles Dilke had attempted to make mischief be tween the colonial secretary and him self, but any such attempt would fall. He contended that after the resolution of the colonial conference Mr. Cham berlain was liound to raise the subject of preferential trade for public discus sion. Mr. Balfour deprecated "waving the ragged, mot.u eaten flags of either the protectionist or free trade side In the controversy, now ns far removed as the poles from the controversy of half a century ago." Mar Have to Retaliate. The premier then proceeded to argue that the tendency was to raise a tariff wall against British goods. Great Britain, he said, must become more and more dependent on foreign countries for food and owing to exterior tariffs would find herself compelled, to dispose of tier exports on onerous terms, re sulting in an enormous loss to the com munity, lie therefore urged that the time hud come when it should be pub licly discussed whether the doctrine that revenue was never to be raised except for purposes of expenditure mut not be abandoned. The premier declared there was no contradiction between the views of Mr. Chamberlain and his own, but he de fended the right of any minister to freedom of speech. This fiscal ques tion required the most careful exami nation. He was not certain that the scheme was practicable, but. unless Some scheme was devised the empire could not progress.

The questions asked of a woman by a male physician are embarrassing, and often revolting to a sensitive nature. In consequence the whole truth is not told ; this makes it difficult for female troubles to be successfully treated even by the best physicians, and is the reason so many women grow worse rather than better. A woman understands a woman better than a man, there are symptoms which sick women have that a man cannot understand, simply because he is a man, but the whole truth may be told to Mrs. Pinkham, and her vast experience enables her to give advice which leads to a cure. All women who suffer should secure Mrs. Pinkham's advice; it costs nothing but a letter addressed to her at Lynn, Mass. Female troubles are real troubles, and must be treated understanding. For a quarter of a century Mrs. Pinkham's advice and Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound have been helping women to get strong and well, and her great file of letters prove that more than a million women have been restored to health and strength by her advice and her medicine when all other means have failed. When you go to a druggist for Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, do not let him persuade you to try something which he says is just as good ; there is nothing just as good, because Mrs. Pinkham's medicine holds the record for the largest number of cures of any female medicine in the world.

"Mr. Machcn has been a long time In the public service, and he Is widely and favorably known throughout the United States, and it is due him that the public should not prejudice his case, but should patiently await devel opments, which are sure to come.
