A few years ago while she was employed in the mills she was suddenly seised with dizziness and great weakness. " I was so-weak at tiroes," she says, "thai I could hardly stand, and my head became so dizzy that it seemed aa if the floor was moving aronud. "My condition at last became so bad thatJL wns obliged to give np work in he mill, and later still I became so feebly that I could not even attend to me household duties. After the slightest-exertions I had to lie down and rest until I regained strength. "A frieud who had used Dr. Williams Pink Pills for Pule People urged me to try them. I bought a box and began to take them. The benefit was so positive aud so quickly evident that I continued to use the pills until I had taken altogether six boxes. By that time I was entirely cured, aud for two years I have had no return of my trouble. I am now in the best of health aud able to attend to all my duties. I am glad to acknowledge the benefit I received and I hope that my statement may be the menus of Inducing others who umy suffer in this way to try this wonderful medicine," The secret of the power of Dr. Wil leveling character of conditions It might have been aeea yesterday after noon, when "If ike" Do Young, of the Chronicle, millionaire and political leader, stood In front of one of these little offices.

They said, however, that In every sense It would be a broad Judicial review. The pride of authorship la said to Interfere with an agreement on any particular amendment, but preference would have to be voted for one of half a dozen, any one of which would lie satisfactory to this so-called conservative faction. Several other senators favoring such a review amendment, exprt-ed similar views. Contrary opinions were expressed by Senntors Dolliver and Long, two of the men who have founht for the bill as It was passed by the hotine or with some such court review amendment as was agreed upon at a conference at (he White houne by friends of the bill. They stated, after the adjournment of the senate Monday, that they did not believe there were votes enough in the Bcnate to put a broad re-lew amendment Into the bill, and that they were not sure that the senate wanted any change at all, even such a limited review as was proposed by Senator Ixjng after the White house conference.

It greatly helps the flow of milk In cases wbert coffee Is Inclined to dry it up, and where tea causes nervousness. "I find trouble in getting servants to make Postum property.
