Von the People, of the I'koplk. and uy the People. Mrs. Fred Unra.th, President Conn fry Club, Benton Harbor, Mich. "After my first baby was born 1 did not seem to regain my strength although the doctor gave me a tonic which he consid ered very superior, but instead of getting better I grew weaker every day. My hus band Insisted that I take Wine of Cardui for a week and see what It would do for me. I did take the medicine and was very grateful to find my strength and health slowly returning. In two weeks I was out of bed and In a month 1 was able to take up my usual duties. I am very enthusi astic in its praise." Wine of Cardui reinforces the organs of generation for the ordeal of preg nancy and childbirth. It prevents mis carriage. No woman "who takes Wine of Cardui need fear the coming of her child. If Mrs. Unrath had taken Wine of Cardui before her baby came she would not have been weakened as she was. Her rapid recovery should commend this great remedy to every expectant mother. Wine of Cardui regulates the menstrual flow. VJlHEorCARDUL '8 House, BCI.C1NU A ICM.

This department U under the lAanageruent and control of the Belding W. T. U.J It is found from an accurate studv of statistics, that ninety-one per cent. of the crime and pauperism of the State comes direct from the use of intoxicating drinks. The only argu ment that can be urged to-day against prohibition is that of ex pediency. The time has passed when uny intelligent man can seri ously question the . right of a com munity to protect its members against such dire evils as result from the use of intoxicating drinks. Lib erty is constantly restrained where its exercise may be used by any to his neighbor's detriment, or his own injury. A man cannot build a dwelling-house on his own land, and i v. : .ti a. . i- iui ma unii uar, uoiu me proper ue- pariment has certified that his plans are safe for his neighbors, and healthful for his own indwelling. A family living contenedlv under ground, with insufficient light and, air, are expelled from their home, and the cellar is closed, regardless of the complaint of landlord and tenant. No other evil is so productive of injury to the community as this curso of alcohol; yet almost any other mav be legislated against if this is Ut alone. We punish with relentless severity the poor drunk en wretch who violates the law, though we know that the crime was committed when the stupifying and poisonous draught had deprived him entirely of that sense of right and wrong, which lies at the very founda tion of moral responsibility. We punish the drunken criminal, not for the tippling which led to h8 in sanity and crime, but for the crimes that he would never, have comjnitted in his sober senses; and -then we re new the license of the rum-seller whose liquor has crazed him; so that when his terra of punishment has expired he may again be subjected to the same temptation, and society again suffers from his evil-doing. Against every other danger we may protect ourselvtg without the cry of "fanaticism," or "danger to private rights." The officers of the law go into our most private apartments to searcli for sewer-gas, or some source of ill health, that may work harm to a few occupants of the bouse, and pass by the licensed shop that corrupts a neighborhood and ruins bodies and souls. We compel the fencing in of an area, lest some unwarv passer-by or some child may fall iuto it; and allow the saloon man his public bar room, where he may display his decauters, and his free lunch to entice our young men into the broad road which loads to drunkenness and death. We enter by forcf if needs be, and take away sick children from their parents' care to a public hospital, and disin fect houses where there has been n contagious disease. We break up gambling-hells, and policy-shops, and disorderly houses, because thev are detrimental to the morals of the community. Hut there is no con tagion more deadly, no gas more pernicious, no allurement to vice so potent as this curse of bar-room drinking. Where gambling ruins one fortune, rum ruins many; and no other vice is so thoroughly de structive of all manliness as rum can be. What vice or weakness can we name that leads to Crime as this docsf What vice or misery can we name to which the first glass may not lead? Look at the squandered fortunes, the imbecile minds, the ruined homes, the blighted lives, the broken hearts! See in how many families of your own friends the curse comes, striking the bright est and best; see the poverty, the ruin, the crime, and the vast multi tudes going on in never-ending suc cession to fill drunkards' graves; anri then see the community lopping ft little branches of evil, and letting the giant tree of evil stand to scat ter its baleful seeds! We ask you, intelligent reader, if such a course of conduct is worthy of a Christian or even a civilized people? Is it not clearly our dutv to protect the young and the weak from such a degrading evil as the sin of indulging in intoxicating drinks? WANTKP.
