Monday's KeaUter
We have stood on the State Housetops
as thj sun was sinking to sleep
b?\ond the Congaree hi Is, turning the
uay ight hours into night. We had
watched him rise in the morning from
his sea-sprayed couch in the east,
transforming drowsy dark to dewy
d-wn, and dawn to day. We watch-d
him elimb the eastern slope reflectinr
his splendor upon the handiwork or
nature and shedding his warmth in
the h?*ri> of nan. We watehtd him
gliding down his western descent, until
the stars carne out. and, peeping
through the chink holes of night,
mocked at his (light before the gloom
of the sable cooqueror. Another d?y
is done. Another added to the dead
and soon forgotten past.
We watched an aged man stumbling
along in his inlirinity. Hoon the horrizon
would be readied and he would
sink gently into tbe azure depths ol
the great beyond. Once in the in< rnino
of his life time he had brought liie,
light and j y 10 many hearts like tlx
new born gun. Ooou does morning!

The top is reached; he osb'h a reflect

Hut, on, how soon must th<* decern
commence! A loving providence cat
not permit hiin to fall precipitate 1
trom the pinnacle of overcome din
cultlea into the bosom of the lougtdcei
Hie life begiue to loae its brlghtnei
and aoon muat tlud rest beyond ttis

Kvery mother, and every woman who exCeets

It gives elastic endurance to the organs
concerned in motherhood, and nourishing
vitality to the special nerve centers.
Taken early ntmng gestation, u makes
motherhood perfectly s ife and almost painless.
Its beneficial effect is transmitted to
the child in increased constitutional vigor.
It protects the mother against relapse and
Improves the quantity and quality of nourishment
during the nursing period.
It reinforces tired over-wrought women at
every critical stage, and heals the special
diseases to which they are subject. It was
designed for this express purpose by an
educated physician and skilled specialist.
Dr. Pierce has devoted thirty years to this
particular field of practice. His thousand:

The action of the committee today

national attention. One of the principal
objections developed is that it
would give the States the power to
control inter-State commerce and might
lead to the invocation of power in the
case of other coiumoditieg. Before the
