When a physician tells a woman, suffering' from female trouble, that an operation is necessary it, of course, frightens her. The very thought of the operating table and the knife strikes terror to her heart. As one woman expressed it, when told by her physician that she must undergo an operation, she felt that her death knell had sourtded. ..„ , r _, D ... . __ Our hospitals are full of women irritable disposition compelled me to seek who are there for just such operations! medical advice.

Miss Margret Merkley, of 275 3d Street, Milwaukee, Wis.,"writes: Dear Mrs. Prakham:— "Loss of strength, extreme nervousness, severe shooting pains through the pelvic organs, cramps, bearing-down pains, ami an irrif ng may reach a stage where an operation is the only resource, but such cases are much rarer than is generally supposed, because a great many women have been cured by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound after the doctors had said an operation must be performed. In fact, up to the point where the knife must be used to secure instant relief, this medicine is certain to help. The strongest and most grateful statements possible to make come from women who, by taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, have escaped serious operations. Margrit* Ryan, Treasurer of St. Andrew's Society, Indianapolis, Ind., writes of her cure as follows: Dear Mrs. Pinlcbam: — " I cannot find words to express my thanks for the good Lydia E. Pinkhani's Vegetable operation as my only hope. To this I strongly objected—and I decided as a last resort to try Lydia E.' Piukham's Vegetable Compound. "To my surprise the ulceration healed, all the bad symptoms disappeared, and I am once more strong, vigorous and well: and I cannot express my thanks for what it has done forme." Serious feminine troubles are steadily on the increase among women —and before submitting to an operation every woman should try Lydia E. 'Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and write Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn, Mass, for advice. For thirty years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has been curing the worst forms of female complaints, all functional troubles, inflammation, ulceration, falling and displacement, weakness, irregularities, indigestion « . .. and nervous prostration.

The platform ia too long to publish in its entirety. Its substance is as follows: The liquor traffic ia declared to bo the greatest evil of the age and its prohibition is demanded. The in itiative and referendum, the election of United States Senators by direct vote and universal suffrage by citizens "mentally and morally qualified"are favored. An iuter-partisan tariff commission is favorefj, as is also a par- cols post and postal and public school savings institutions. Rigid enforcement of the law ia demanded and Governor Folk is commended for enforcing the Sunday law., Other demands are: An inebriate asylum for Missouri, a penal system whereby dependents and not contractors get the benefit of the work of convicts.a liberal road policy,a2-centpassenger fare, the endowment of state and eleemosynary institutions and an, equal distribution of the inheritance tax among these institutions. The legislature is asked to amend laws so that "minority parties may have the right to cast their ballots freely and untram- melod," and to submit to the voters of the state an amendment to the constitution prohibiting the manufacture, importation and sale of beverage alcoholics within the state. \ CITY COUNCIL WILL ASK RAILROAD COMPANIES TO BUILD Ryan Street Bridge "Will Be Condem- ned—City Was to Keep The Ap- proaches and Floor in Bepair ROBINSON COT SHOES.

The first person who finds the right "party and brings him to our store we jive a pair of SI Patriot shoes. Ask every msn you meet." The scheme proved a clever bit of advertising and Messrs. Brant & Son announce in today's CONSTITUTION that they • will give .way another pairof these excellent shoes under the same conditions next Saturday. MINOR WILL FILED. The will of the late George Minor was probated Monday. James C. Minor was made executor under §40,000 bond. Mr. Minor bequeathed all his real estate and personal property to his mo;her during her life. After ler death the property goes :o Stanley Minor, son of Dr. and Mrs. J. C. Minor. At tonight's meeting of the city council, the Street and Alley committee which was appointed by the city, council at its last meeting to inspect the Ryan street overhead bridge and make a report at the next meeting of tte council, will make a repoifc that a new steel, bridge is needed at that place. The 'wooden structure which now crosses the Wabash and Burlington tracks is in a dangerous condition. When the bridge was built the city was to keep the ap- proa^hes and floors in good condition while the railroad companies were to keep the bridge proper in good repair. If the companies do not build a new iron bridge, the council will condemn the one now standing and open the street and make a railroad crossing at that place. City Attorney Ashby who was told to act with the Street and Alley committee, stated Monday that he thought the railroad companies would build a new i»on bridge across the tracks as it would be a great benefit to them as well as the citizens. Another matter which probably will come before the council tonight is the acceptance of the paving on East Calhoun street. E. K. Johnson, Wes Neff, Jat ob Tunnell and Dr. Bowers of Sullivan county arrived in the city Monday morning and drove to Bear lake where they will spend the week hunting and fishing.

I have often selected material from the piece or from samples in a tailor shop, and when it was made up into a suit, did not care for it at all. The same applies to the style of cut, Besides, I have found by getting Kuppenheim- er Clothes I am sure of a perfect fit without the trouble of trying on more than once;" Clothes made'by the House of Kuppenheim- er offer a wide range for selection both in fabric and style.
