Women as n class jrossess perhaps
even greater vitality than men, but
in most cases their energies arc so
poorly controlled or diverted to
such useless ends as to place them
in the immeasurable weaker phys

should not exist. The utilization
of the nervous force which women
so frequently waste upon their nt
tirc, their affairs and their emotions
in wholesome and rational exer
cise, and a proper degree of atten

enable those women who have the
intelligence and indcivndcncc to
think for themselves to live more

is Chamberlain s Cough Remedy.

The St. Johns ferry ran into n
catastrophe Wednesday morning.
A Government boat was passing up
the river with some pontoons fol
lowing in the rear attached to n
cable from the boat, and the ferry
people after waiting for the vessel
to pass, attempted to cross the river.
The cable was not noticed until the
launch ran into it. The shock
threw out the engineer and Henry
Gosucy into the water and smashed
the top of the launch in pretty bud
shape. The men in the water suc
ceeded in grasping the cable uud
after a strcuotis effort reached the
boat in safety. Henry says the
water was awful cold.
