woman entertains and wears a smile
while her back aches and her nerves

which offers relief to women would be

when the woman's medicine, Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription, is offered with the
proof of efficacy in thousands of well
attested cures, what excuse can then be
offered for suffering longer?
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription

heals inflammation and ulceration and
cures female weakness.

PROCEEDINGS OF CONGRESS
SOME OF ITS IMPORTANT NEW MEASURES
The New Hay-Pauncefort Treaty and Its
Provisions A Dramatic Episode in the Sen
ate-Mr Frye's Ship Subsidy Bill -Tariff
for the Philippines - For the Protection of
the President and Other High Officials.
There was a Hood of bills in tho
Houso Friday among them one to
create the Mckinley national park and
forest reserve of 4,000,000 acres of tim
ber land in the Appalachian range in
tho states of Tennessee, West Virginia,
North Carolina, South Carolina, Geor
gia and Alabama at a cost of 810,000,
000. Senator Pritchard had introduced
a bill calling it the Appalachians na
tional park, with an area of 2,500,000
acres, costing $5,000,000.
In tho Senate a favorable report on
tho new Hay-Paunceforte treaty was
unanimously ordered although consid
erable opposition arose from the fact
that the treaty contains a clause
applying the Suez canal rules provid
ing for neutralization.
The new treaty is summed up by
President Roosevelt as follows: In
this treaty tho old Clayton-Bulwer
treaty, so long recognized as inade
quate to supply the base for the con
struction and maintenance of a neces
sarily American canal, is abrogated.
It specifically provides that the United
States alone shall do the work of
building and assume the responsibility
of safeguarding the canal and shall
regulate its neutral use by all nations
on terms of equality without the guar
antee or interference of any outside
nation from any quarter. The treaty
was sent into the Senate by the presi
dent Wednesday. Tho estimated cost of
the canal is 180.S(;4,Ot;2 and the time
of construction eight years. The isth
mian commission's report favors the
Nicaraguan route which must be by
locks; Lake Nicaragua furnishing an
inexhaustible supply of water, but no
natural harbors. Two bills loaking to
the construction of the canal by this
route have been introduced in the
Senate. Some of the isthmian com
mission favored the Panama route as
superior from an engineering and
physical point of view and because,
for geographical reasons, a canal at
Panama would involve fewer political
'complications in tho future with
l Latin-American states. These mem-
i bers finally decided to make the report
! unanimous in favor of the Nicaragua
j route because of the excessively high
price demanded for the plant and good
will of the Panama canal company.
The Senate was not in session Satur
, day. In the House the committees on
j Ways and Means, Appropriations and
Enrolled Bills were announced by
.Speaker Henderson: a bill to pension

women in the b.nd to know of it; nnd it means lastly that Mrs. I'inkliamj
claims for Ljiliu K. I'inkliani'a Vegetable Compound are fully smb
stantiated by testimony of such high character that every woman who rtadj
this must believe and hope.
To )e appreciated is a great pleasure, but to bring peace and happiness to
the suffering is heavenly. Such is the mission of Mrs. Pinkham, and such
letter as the following proves her succehs !

"Dkar Mils. Pinkham I have been married for nearly two years,
and po fur have nut been blessed with a child. I have, however, suf
fered with a complication of female troubles and painful menstruation,
until very recently.
"The value of Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound was
called to my attention by an intimate friend, whose life had simply been
a torture with inflammation and ulceration, and a few bottles of your
C'omnoimd cured her: she can hardly Udieve it herself today, she en
joys sin h blessed health. I took four bottles of your Compound and
consider myself cured. Iam once more in fine health and spirits; my
domestic and official duties all seem easy now, for I feel so strong I can
do three times what I used to do. Vou have a host of friends in Den-
ver, and among the best count, Yours very gratefully, Jibs. Ica u

AVben a medicine bus been successful in restoring to health
go many women whose testimony is so unquestionable, you cannot
well say. without trvinir it. " I do not believe it will help me." If
you arc ill, don't hesitate to pet a bottle of Lydia E. IMnkham's
Vegetable Compound at once, and write Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn,
Mass., for special advice it is free and always helpful.
