SHAW Lieutenant Governor. J. C. MILLIMAN Judge Supreme court CHARLES M. WATERMAN Railroad Commissioner CHARLES L. DAVIDSON Supt. Public Instruction RICHARD C. BARRETT Mr. Shaw is new to politics in this state, having had his introduction last year. He appeared in the campaign as a surprise, for he possessed a greater fund of information on the money question than almost any other speaker in the state and he had a forcible and telling way of expressing himself. This was largely the basis of his victorious gubernatorial candidacy. He is 49 years old and was born in Vermont. He came west when a young man and worked his way through college, being a graduate of Cornell College, Iowa, in 1S73. and of the state university law school In 1876. HP. has always been successful In business, and his interest in educational and philanthropic matters Is a lively ono, and has been helpful to his town. Mr. Shaw is prominently identified with the Methodist church and has been a lay delegate in three general conferences. Captain Milliman was born in Saratoga County, New York, and is just 50 years old. He came to Iowa in 1865. and in 1869 was elected county recorder of Harrison County and held the office eight years. He was for a time a banker, but in 1884 went into the rea estate and loan business, in which he is still engaged with Almor Stern. He was elected to the legislature in 1893 ory recently won. frnd confident In tkt belief hat n still InrRer majority nfralts then) lit the •lost* of trip contest noiv open.

It recognizes and Insists upon the broad and fundamental principle that government among men Is Instituted to Insure fair and equal opportunity to every human being In the struggle of life. Unit to afford such opportunity selfishness must be rchukcd, avarlclousness held lu check, and power of combination restrained. And the republican party Invokes Its birth and history as a guarantee of Its pledge that It exists "illy In do Justice among men, to add dignity ami riimrurt to the lives of the poor, and In Inalif eiiuittlty of opportunities not an ub- slnu't him, lint a living reality, \Vi> point with satisfaction and pride to the long rccoid of wise and economical administration of state affairs by the republican party, to the benevolent Institutions established and splendid edifices erected nnd paid for, on a rate of taxation uniformly below that of our ulster states.

Any woman of oom-»- mon sense will take steps to cure herself. She will realize that her generative system \ Is in need of help, and that a good restorative medicine is a positive necessity. It must be a medicine with specific virtues. As a friend» a woman friend, let me advise the use of Lydia B Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. If your case hns progressed so that a troublesome discharge is already established, do not delay, take the Vegetable Compound at once, so as to tone up your whole nervous system ; you can get it at any reliable drug store. (> You ought also to \ise a local application, or else the corrosive discharge will set up an inflammation and hardening of the parts. Mrs. Pinkham's Sanative Wash is put up in packets at 25 cents each. To relieve this painful condition this Sanative Wash is worth its weight in gold. i MBS. QEORQK W. SIIEPABD, Watorvliet, N.

Before using Mrs. Pinkham's Remedies it seemed that I had no strength at all. ' I wr\8 in pain all over. I began to feel better after taking the first dose of Vegetable Compound.

THE CHILD AND THE BEARS. Since the legendary days of Romulus and Remus many instances have been recorded where beasts of prey, having opportunity,have refrained from harm- Ing a small child. The Pittsburg Dispatch cites an interesting Incident of. th'ls character. Little Helma Ursler wandered away from her home near Snowshoe, Penn., one day in the fall and was swallowed up In the wilds of the Allegheny mountains. The greatest alarm was felt, and for two days every man, woman and child, of the neighborhood turned out to beat the woods. On the third day four lumbermen found the little girl a mile and a half from her. home in the dense wood,playing with two bear cubs. The men called to her, and with a glad cry she ran toward them. The two bear cubs began to 'whine, and a moment afterward a large female bear dashed out from the underbrush, evidently to dispute the right of the men to carry off ner protege. The men had their axes, and after a hard struggle they dispatched the beast, and took the cubs for pets—a fine reward for the bear's care of the child! Fritz Yanseer, one of the lumbermen, was badly lacerated in the arm by the bear's jaws. Helma was uninjured by her sojourn among the bears and. was soon restored to her anxious parents.
