MGLECT is SUICIDE; Plain Words •From Mrs. Pinkham, (Corroborated by Mrs. Oharlef Dunmore, That Ought to Bring Suffering Women to Their Senses. If youiver* drowning; and friendly^ hands snoved a plank to you, and ycra refused it, you "would be committing suicide! Yet that, is precisely what women are doing if they go abont tlieir homes ilmost dead with, misery, yet refuse tograap the kindly hand hedd out to theml ..-rTSs:^ Jit is suicidal to go day after day with that dull, constant pain iii the region of the womb and that bloating heat and tenderness of the abdomen, which make the weight of your clothes an almost intolerable harden to you. It is not natural to suffer so in merely emptyingthe bladder. Does not that special form of sui\ ^ fering tell you that there is inflammation somewhere? I tell you what it is? ' ^ 'it is inflammation of the -womb! •^ If it goes on, polypus, Or tumor, or cancer will set in. — Commence the'use of Lydia E. Pinkh'am's Vegetable — (Compound. Thousands of women in this; condition have been cured by it. Keep your bowels open with Mrs. Pinkham's Liver Pills, and if von want further advice, write to Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn, Mass., stating freely all 'your symptoms-she stands ready and willing to. give you the very best advice. She has given the helping hand, to suffering justlikc yourself, many of whomlived miles away from cian * Her marvelous Vegetable Compound has cured " * many thousands, of women. It ca:a be found at any respectable drug- store. MBS. CHABLEB DUJTMOKE, 102 Fremont St., Winter Hill Somerville, Mass., says: "I was in paia day and night' my doctor did not seem to help me. I could not seem to find any relief until I took Lydia E. Pinkhan.'s Vegetable Compound. I had inflammation of the womb, a bearing-down pain. and.the whites very badly The pain wan so intense that I ccml d not sleep at niffht" I took Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for e_ = _. , . and am now all'right. Before thai; I took morphine pills for my pain; that was a srreat mistake, for the relief was only momentary and the effect vile. I am so thankful to be relieved of my sufferings, for the pains I had were something terrible. I am, indeed, very grateful foi tno good Mrs. Piiikh.am's rime- dies have done me." ODD FJLi-OWS. thousands a pbysi- months, have things all their own way by any means. •.-. do the people ie»« such men M Steele, of Marion, and Landla, of Delphi, to congresi), If they have to be directed by a monetary commls- •lon, whoso membisrs work without »»y? Would it not be cheaper to hire » oommlsslon to make laws ror the feople? __ GOVERNOR MOTJXT claims to haye reduced the state debt enormously •ince he became governor a year ago. Asa matter of fact debt reduction has been going on for several years and the state hss been enacted tc make a good showing because the eorporatlons have been forced to pay their just share ol taxes. It has also been enabled to make a good showing en account of the special funds de- il»ed from a sinking fund tar. This tax.-waa was expeoted to provide suffl elent funds to -pay ofl the state deb about eight yeiirs, and it will do it The time has now come, however when the sinking fund levy can be •afely reduced, and In justice to the taxpayers of Indiana, the next Ugisi Uture should reduce it As to Guv ernor Mount, he lias had nn more t do with the reduction of the stst debt than any oilier taxpayer. IT seems strange that Mark Hanna who controls McKinley, cannot cou trol the members of the Ohio leg! Uture. Here is a man who make presidents, forms cabinets, names members of the highest courts, par- eels out privileges to corporations and directs the movements of the gold eoo«plrators, aoc. yet he cannot control the votes of men elected to the legislature front his • own city of Cleveland. His. defeat for re-election to the Unitud States senate will nark the trlum |)h of the common people over & must haughty and corrupt boss. His ilefeat wlil have a most salutary efl'ect upon American politics. It will, clear the political atmosphere as t!ue lightning destroys noxious Tapors. The Congressional Substitute. The Indianapolis monetary com- jlssion has made its report and l;he ecommendatloa which it will mo- mit to congress with the expectation hat that body will yield to the commission's superior wisdom, will be ound in these columns. ..The plan ubmitted is very comprehensive in etall but it adda bat little to Backer Gage's scheme of reforming be currency. The chie! scheme in ooth plans is, first to make all obligations of the government payable in rold, and, second, to give the national banks the privilege of iasu- ng all the paper money demanded! by the needs of business. These are the two things sought yu be accomplished. 'Those who seek to have these changes made in the laws of the land are the creditor classes—the bond-holders, the mortgage holders, the idle holders of superfluous wealth and the men who iontrol the banking .interests of the country. The creditor class want to get, rid of that word "coin" in the bond. -AS the price of silver has been forced down and down by unfriendly legislation, the bond-holdiing classes are getting very anxious to have the terms of their contract changed.. They are looking out for No. 1 and have tdus far been able to dictate legislation In their interest.

While Odd Fellowship has become so widespread, carrying on its operations in Europe, Asia and America under the flags of not less than 15 different nations and almost, encircling the civilized world with its chain of lodges, it is in Canada and the United States that it has attained its greater power and has become » recognized factor in she development of civilization.

All men arc entitled to equal rights in the lodgeroom. An open and free expression of opinion is a privilege that should be accorded every member. The business affairs of a lodge need the same attentiveness and strictness that your owa private affairs need—that is, it' vour lodge is to be kept in a flourishing condition. There are +60 Rebekahs in Utah and 1,456 subordinates. Daring 00"years the Patriarchs Militant of Indiaina have expended $376,540 for relief.

Many of the free silver Republi- "'eans tad D«m<i*rat» In the senate feel that the president has forced the Issue of ttie perpetuation of the •ingle gold stawdard, and that there is nothing to tie gained bj; deferring the flint. set. They huve been watching legis- atioo in the country for more than twenty yeans. Tlttey have never fought in the open until the past year. No party has ever .demanded t,he permanent establishment of the single gold standard. Yet, in this matter, congress is mow asked by a self-constituted commission, to do what no respectable number of people have ever aslced to be done. No feeling of pill y is manifested for the debtor class by the representatives of the well fed, fat and saucy backers and brokers and board of trade men who constituted tho Indianapolis conference. Take away the people : si option to pay in either gold or silver and It Is equivalent, to taking millions from the debtor class and giving it to the bond holder ancl the mortgage holder. Destroy the legal tender quality of all forms of money but gold.amJ the plutocrats can more quickly establish that aristocracy of wealth, whose foundations are already laid and whose haughty rule can never be overthrown except by revolution. • Lincoln said that no greater crime No trouble is move common or more misunderstood than nervous dyspepsia. People having it think that their nerves are to blame and are surprised that they are not cured by nerve medicine and spring remedies; the real seat'of the mischief is lost sight of; tbe^storcach is the organ to be looked after. Nervous dyspeptiCT often do not have any pain whatever in the stomach, nor perhaps any of the usual symptoms of stomach weakness. Nervous dyspepsia stows itself not in the stomach so much as in nearly every ether organ; in some cases the heart palpitates and' li) irregular; in others the kldneysare affected; in others the bowels are constipated, with eadacbes: s'. ul others are troubled ith loss of flesh and appetite, with ccumulatton of gas, sour risings and eartburn. Mr. A. W. Sharper, of No. 61 Prospect street, Indianapolis, writes s follows: "A motive of pare ratitude prompts me to write these ew lines regarding the new and aluable medicine, Stuart's Dys- jepsia Tablets.
