Women, And Consider the All-Important Fact, That in addressing- Mrs. Pinkham you are confiding your private ills to a -woman—a \voman •whose experience in treating woman's diseases is greater than that of any living 1 phvsician—male or female. You can talk freely to a woman when it is revolting to relate your private troubles to a man—besides, a man does not understand—simply because he is a man. Many women suffer in silence and drift along from bad to worse, knowing full well that they ought to have immediate assistance, but a natural modesty impels them to shrink from exposing themselves to the questions and probably examinations of even their family physician. It is unnecessary. Without money or price you can consult a woman, whose — knowledge from actual experience is greater than any local physician in the world. The following invitation is freely offered; accept it in the same spirit: MRS PINKHAM'S STANDING INVITATION. Women suffering from any form of female -J-"^.S Sffi DID WEYLER WINK?

Nothing marks the prog- reuBlvenesa of .our neighboring city more than the character of Its newspapers. — THE Democratic party must make its fight for eiletence among the common people. Ii must expect to lose the support of the rich men who have been trying to cqntrol Its destinies for the past few years. The C hlcago convention took the party out of the control of men who ,ought to use it for their own selfish purposes. When their plans were frustrated they joined their fortunes with the party of trusts and protection. They can not, during this generation, again secure control of the Democratic party. The Democratic party must fight the trusts, It must fight the encroachments ot corporations, It must tight tax dodgers, It must tax superfluous wealth, It must fight the corrupt money power or it must disband as an organization, founded upon the teachings of Jefferson. SENATOK FAIRBANKS Is campaign- Ing In Ohio for Mark Hanoa. Every corporation lawyer In the country wants flanna elected to the senate. Hanna and Fairbanks are two of a kind—corporation variety. Nothing shows the degeneracy of the Republican party more plainly than does their occupancy of seati In the United States senate aa the representatives of the great states of Ohio and Indiana—states that have honored and been honored by such men as Chase, Allen and Pendleton, Thurman and Sherman, and by Fitch and Wright, Morton and Hendrlcks, Harrison and Voorhees. Both Hanna and Fairbanks are representatives of corporations. They are not in congress to represent the people. They are the debris which the great "sound money" wave washed ashore. The great corporations will utilize them until the people again have the opportunity to set them adrift. ^^^___ EVANSVILLK and Indianapolis, in which cities the majorities were almost large enough to give the state to McKlnley last fall, have bJih gone Democratic since that election by " handsome majorities. It was the cities of Indiana that gave the state to McKinley last fall and the legislature to Fairbanks. Fort Wayne, Vlncennes and Logansport were the only important cities in the state in which the Democrats were successful, If the cities ol Indianapolis, Evans- vllle, Terre Haute and South Bend go Democratic next fall the Democrats will carry the state and secure a majority in the legislature. The quarrels over the distribution of patronage threatens to disorganize the g. o. p. And then the colored voters are in revolt and want revenge. They alone have votes enough to defeat the Kepublican party, and they are very much aggrieved because their party services have In no way been recognized. j. pxKRpeirr MOEQAN is now engaged in the work ol forming a great railroad trust. Hi» purpose Is to obtain control of all seaboard lines, and destroy. competition in railway traffic- The recent decision of the •upreme court declaring railway pools to *e a conipiracj agalnrtttw public baa aroused the rail war managers and they nf« now attempting to avoid the effect ot that deolito*. Medicine Co., Lynn. Mass. ^'^•^•^ If Morgan is successful, he will obtain control of nearly ail the railway lines in the country and will be able to fix rates to suit his avaricious nature. Morgan now controls more miles of railway than any other man in the world's history. If be succeeds In his'present undertaking he will have the American people at his mercy. If the law cannot check his greed, theo the day will come when the government will take steps to own, control and operate a railway system of its own. Corporate greed will finally lead to its own destruction. Pole Up to Date. Lieutenant Peary had scarcely landed his big 100 ton meteorite at Brooklyn dock when he gave out a statement of his plan for reaching the north pole in the next two or three years. He declares he never made the statement that he would find the north pole next tirce or die in the attempt. "But I shall make a determined effort to find it," he added, "and I shall have practically unlimited funds at my command and five years' tima " The strong probability is that he will succeed in the attempt and that an American foot will be the first to tread the enchanted ground or ice, as the case may he, of latitude 90 degrees north of "the equator. It can scarcely be that Andree is yet alive, or he would have been heard from ore this. Peary has selected 20 Eskimo couples, men and women, strong young people, to accompany his party 011 the little pic A Colored Man's Eloquence. •When the negro race is lifted up and civilized thoroughly, the black man •will probably take first place among the world's orators. A ferviduess, an impassioned eloquence exist in negro oratory that seldom move and thrill through the colder temperament of the white speaker. The address recently at Nashville of President W. H. Councill of the Agri cultural and Mechanical- College For Negroes, *t Normal, Ala., is a notable example of the black man's power of eloquence. President Conncill appeals to the negro himself to stop those crimes of violence against white women for which persons of his race are being lynched. He says the blacks themselves must be the first to take a band in capturing and bringing to justice the fiends who commit such crimes. It is a stain and a dishonor on the black race which themselves must wipe out Here is an extract frcim the concluding portion of his address: Let us restore that sense of security which white women felt 30 years ago in the presence of our fathers tinder any circumstances aim- the most forbidding environments, \\enuis make the humblest white woman in tUe re raotest and wildest, part of our country feel a: safe in the presence of a negro man as angel" Eva did olono with her Uncle Tom.

We arrived at 6 p. m. on'Saturday and left at 8 p. m., during which time the detectives did not leave the head of the ganfr-plank. -Just before the Seneca sailed the chief of police, his deputy and his secretary came aboard. Senorita Cisneros had escaped two day; previously and yet they asked no questions and made no search for her. although upon three former occasions they had searched the Seneca from stem to stern and keel 1:0 promenade deck while lockir.g for suspects." Captain Stevens' said that to the best of his knowledge the or.ly persons who went aboard at Havana were the Lustie family, the Del Kea: family, eig'tu Chir.a- m'e'n, and a n-an whose name appeared upon thf advar.ee passenger list as Juan Sola, and who must have had a passport: otherwise he could net have scr.e aboard. When it was discovered that -Juan Soia" was a sirl. the -Juan" was changed to "Juar.a." ard Miss Cisneroa came In under that name. Miss Cisnercs was siren some articles of female wearing apparel by the stewardess of the Seneca. Mr. Stewart, an Englishman -.vho embarked at Tampico, and who understand? Spanish, said that he sat opposite Miss Cisneros at the table during the voyage, and when she aw the Cape Hatteras light she fell up- i n her knees on the deck and prayed de- ' •outly. Stewart found the rescued Cu- ian a most pleasant companion. She had her hair pinned in a coil, worn under sombrero when she embarked disguised as a ranchman. Call That Cossio Won't Hear. Havana, Oct. 14.—Yesterday's Official gazette publishes, ar. edict signed by the military judge calling upon Evangelina Cossio y Cisneros to present herself for a term of fifteen days in jail, and order- ng all civil and military, authorities to endeavor to apprehend her and if captured to send her to Havana Jail.

These will prepare during this year food supplies tor a three years' trip, and next summer Peary will join them.. He believes it will be possible to sail to Sherard Osborue fiord. Then by land he will take supplies for a permanent camp at the most northerly point of land to be found. The work of making this permanent supply camp, wlierever it may be, will occupy all next summer. The attempt to reach the pole vrill be made the summer following over ice or islands or water or whatever is to be found. European nations pretend that they are afraid, if the United States is per rnitted to intervene between Cuba and Spain, their own colonial possessions in America will all be threatened. They profess to believe that the United States wants to acquire the American colonies of European nations. Such blank, black ignorance is almost beyond enlightenment The nations of Europe judge us by themselves. Any one of them would snatch at the chance to acquire Cuba. The United States, on the contrary, has now all the territory she wants. If we accept any additional, it will be as a favor to those offering us the territory, not to ourselves. This is the case of Hawaii. It would be the same with any other bit of foreign land. In the interests of humanity and of the property interests of American citizens in Cuba the United States desires to see the war ended. This involves no hostility to Spain, nor is there among the American people any hostility to Spain. Thefwo minute horse is already hc^.

Honesty In the Klondike. If reports are to be believed, there ia one spot of the globe where mankind are entirely honest —the Klondike country. It is said that miners' outfits are left lying open and unwatched all along the trail for weeks and nobody touches them. It is true a private letter from a Klondiker mentioned that in one Instance a thief was lynched. In. a time when food was scarce be had stolen a chunk of bacon and appropriated it to his own needs. With a touching farewell word for his wife and babies in the States he was strung up and went "whimpering through the air" like tha soul of Danny Dever, but this is tie only case on'record of the kind in aU Klondike history, so far as is known. The people are as honest as a Quaker, every one, and would not touch anything belonging to another. This is pleasing news. The reason of it is also easy co find. Nobody steals in the Klondike because the miner has already everything that can be bought with gold diere. He has not everything he wants, but he has already everything anybody else has and more gold than ha can spend. The natural inference to be drawn is that honesty is largely a matter of circumstances instead of conscience. Men who do not need anything do not steal. Those who want for everything and to •whom the easiest way of getting what thev want seems to be to steal it are thieves. .... Dreams of avarice, romance and ad venture will alike have a sufficiently magnificent center in the land of Alaska. It is.really a vast, unexplored region, and maps of it -will be constantly changing for the next ten yeara.

NEW YORK. A Great Difference.—I noticed two rillags milkmen this morning. Both deliver the milk from their dairies direct to customers.
