I W had an Ovarian Tumor in the Ova

Ann Ardor, Dec. ST, 1375.
Dr. Radwat: That other may be benefitted, I
make thin statement:
I have had an Ovarian Tumor In the ovaries and
bowels for ten years. 1 tried the best physicians in
this place and others without any benefit. It was
growing at such rapidity that I could not have lived
mucu longer. A iriena ot mine lncucea me to try
Had way's Remedies. I had not much faith in them,
but finally, after much deliberation, I tried them.
I purchased six bottles of the Resolvent, two box
es of the I'll Is. and two bottles of the Relief I nsed
those without any apparent benefit. I determined
to persevere. I nscd tW' lve more bottles ot the Re
solvent, two of the Relief, and two boxes of Pills.
Before they were pone I had lost 25 pounds.
I continue,) to use the medicine until I was sure
that I was entirely cured. I took the medicine about
live months, and during that time lost 45 pounds.
In all I took three dozen bottles of the Resolvent.
six bottles Relief, snl six boxes of the 1'iils.
I feel perfectly well, and my heart is fnll of grat
itude to God for this help in my great affliction. To
?ou. Sir, and yonr wonderful medicine. I feel deep
y indebted, and my prayer is that it may be as
much of a blessing to others as it has been to me.

The Moulders' Strike.
As was exuected. the Union, comes to
the rescue of Deere & Co., and undertakes
to justity the recent reduction m wages.
The L'nion has alwavs been on the side of
capital as against labor and its article this
morning is but a continuation ot Us old
policy to favor the '"money kings," instead
ot the toiling millions. Ihe statements in
that paper this morning are explicitly de
nied by the moulders, wha say that it is
impossible for anv workman, even it
assisted by a boy, as suggested, to turn out
15 wheels per day. It is also untrue that
the moulders were offered unconditionally
$2.50 per day. Thev were offered that
amount, but only with the proviso that
wheels per day should be made, otherwise
no workman could get the wages promised ;
and that was an advance ot only If cents
per wheel. The Union also acknowledges
that the object of the reduction was to
make the boys pay for that new moulding
shop." There can be no justification in
this course. It simply shows the mer
cenary motives of employer as against
employe and fully illustrates the efforts of
capital to control labor. The moulders
aie hard workiug men, probably no branch
in tbe shop is more laborious or more in
jurious to health than this particular line
of work, and at 50 cents per wheel they
are only fairly paid tor their labor. The
moulders deny that any firm in Moline
pays $2.50 per day, unconditionally, and
sav thev will stick it out to the last
Whether it is best for them to do so The
Argus does not pretend to say; that is a
matter to be governed by their circum
stances and future prospects, and of which
they alone must judge. But Ihe Argcs
does say that the course of Deere & Co.
seems illiberal and oppressive.
This i the third time a reduction has
been made and in no case has it been nec
essarv. unless it be a desire to grind the
heel of oppression on the necks oi tne
poor and force the mechanics to accept
their terms or starve. Suppose a rue
chanic does earn $4 or even $5 per day,
has he not the same right to prosper as
the capitalist ? If there had been an un
expected increase in the prices of mater
lals the case would be ditterent; as it is
however, the reverse is the case; iron and
steel is lower now than for years, and yet
Deere & Co. maintain the old lugh prices
for plows and cultivators. If the prices
were "reduced in accordance with the re
reduction in labor, so that the farmers
would receive the benefit, then the me
chanic could not complaiu, but it is not so
and is not likely to be so. Ihe whole mat
ter is an unjust attempt to force employes
to van tor improvements. Ihe L mon can
attempt to defend this course, and may
continue to take the side ot capitalist
and monopolists as against the hard work
ing mechanic, nut it cannot ju.-uty the ac
tion of Deere & Co. tor reduciug the wages
for 35 to 50 per cent when there exists
no real reason for so doing.
