Health is a mafjnet which irresistibly
draws the man to the woman in life's mat
ing time. A great many women covet
beauty and are constantly seeking means
to beautify themselves. Let a woman first
eek perfect health.
There can be no general good health for
women while there is disease of the deli
cate womanly organism.
mJw1 FOR W0I1EN
WHO CANNOT BE CURED.
Backed up by over a third of a century
cf remarkable and uniform cures, a record
such as no other remedy for the diseases
and weaknesses peculiar to women ever
attained, the proprietors of Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription now feel fully war
ranted in offering to pay $500 in legal
money of the United States, for any case
of Leucorrhea, Female Weakness, Prolap
us, or Falling of Womb which they can
not cure. All they ask is a fair and reason
able trial of their means of cure.
I used four bottles of your 'Favorite Pre
scription ' and one of ' Golden Medical Discov
ery,' " writes Mm. Elmer l. Shearer, of Mount
hope, Lancaster Co.. Pa., "and can say that I am
cured of that dreaded disease, uterine trouble.
Am in better health than ever before. Every
one who knows me is surprised to see me look
so well. In June I was so poor in health that
at times I could not walk. To-day I am cured.

The Inequality of our Time.
To the Editor and Readers of the
Courier: As tbe time is here once
more in which we are to give expres
sion to our political deliberations,
through that last remnant of American
Independence, the ballot box, prudence
will dictate that we pause ere we rush
to the conflict, and in the calm that
precedes political battle, investigate
with honest motives and sincerity of
purpose the true condition of human
Bociety, and consider the effect our action
will have on general welfare. We are
well aware that capitalism has penetra
ted every part and parcel of our politi
cal and social system. We cannot deny
the boast of capitalism, that its pros
perity now is the greatest it has ever ex
perienced. We will not dispute the con
fession of capital, that with t libra every
thing is lovely and "the goode banns
high," Neither will we deny that it is
the purpose of capitalism to have con
tinuous increasing prosperity until every
acre of land, every factory, coal and iron
mine, everything on this commdta earth
is theirs. Nor do we disbelieve their
intentions of transforming this once
glorious Republic iut) tbe land of tbe
rich and the home of the slave. But,
fellow citizens, the time has come in
our Judgment, that we should call a halt
on the depredations of capital. Its
servants, the politicians, tell us as a
nation of 80,000,00 ' people that we are
happy and free. They tell us that never
in our history have our dinner pails
been so full. They atlviBe us with
prophetic words to save the crumbs for
"in the hour ye know not your dinner
pail may be taken away from you."
And while these representatives of capi
tal are uttering tnese encouraging words
the Morgans and Rockfellers, the liar
rimans and Goulds, are forging another
link in the chain that is intended to
permanently enslave an unsuspecting
people. And by what right do these
capitalists enjoy such powors and privi
leges? Have they during the dark days
of our nation, huowii greater devotion to
its preservation than any other? Do
they create the thiiiKS they po8ess?i Do
they build the houses iu which they
live? Do they raise the bread thev eat?
Do they do anything for themselves or
their fellowmen? Have they built the
railroads thev own? The Bteamnhips?
Have they earned by tho sweat of their
brows the millions of acres of hind they
possess? Have they exercised a muscle
to erect any of the factories they own?
They have not. They reap where they
have not sown; they take by stealth
that which belongs to others; they en
joy the blessings of labor when they
should be receiving the jiiBt reward of
the idler. And what of the laboring
clauses? They produce flu of value
daily and receive $150. Ihey work
either all day or all night. They never
enjoy the privileges that belong to everv
honest mnu. Machinery is rapidly
driving them out of their vocation. They
are filling our tiighways and becoming
outcasts. Their children grow up in
ignorauce and neglect; their only hope
is to become a tramp or a criminal; the
choice of their daughters lies between
ttie brothel and suicide. It is a conser
vative estimate that 10,000,000 of men
have become professional tramps, and
their numbers are yearly increasing at
an alarming rate. Six thousand girls
are annually compelled to give up every
hope of honor and respect; 2(5,000 child
ren starving to death annually in this
land of ours. But why continue this
tale of misery and woe? T hii is the re
ward of men and women who work
throughout the world. Th eie conditions
will grow worse ; men will become more
desperate; women and children more
hopeless; respect for law and order will
decrease, so long as capital rules the
nations, and their desperate mood they
may illustrate the French Revolution
on American soil. Bat taere la hope
for mankind. There is hope for the
men and women who create all the
wealth. The theory that will establish
justice, peace and happineBS among men
is, that every man and woman shall re
ceive the full product of their labor.
The laboring people of the world should
own their governments aud then their
governments own the factories, th rail
roads, the telegraphs, the homes and
everything that labor creates. This will
secure to themselves true liberty such as
mankind hs yet to experience. It will
reduce the hours of labor; it will give
time for rest and leisure; it will advance
civilitation to the sphere to which the
lowly Nasariue directed mankind. This
is the essence of Socialism.

Anent the Local Option Law,
To Editor Conrier
The proposed Local Otion Law de
serves special attention. It is a meas
ure that is more radical than appears on
its face. While going under the name
of local option, it is really a prohibition
movement. This alone should condemn
the law in the minds of all fair minded
Dersons. Whv does it not sail under
true colors? If tbe people of the state
want prohibition, let them openly advo
cate it and vote for it. But don't adopt
prohibition when the people approve of
nothing JJmcre than local option.
The writer would vote for prohibition
if it would prohibit the sale of intoxi
cating drinks ; but I do not believe that
such would be the case on tbe other
hand, I believe that such a law would
really encourage lawbreaking, and in de
fense of my position, I wish you to pub
lish the following extracts :
(Extract from address by Rev. George
Eliot (Jooley, before the Methodist Con
ference at Lyndonville, April 20,1901.)
Good men and sincere men cab and
do differ honestly in respect to the re
sults of this law. I stand unqualifiedly
on the ground that temperance is a prin
ciple of life to which all individuals are
amenable. ... We are coming to
see that it is impossible to bring in tbe
kingdom of God by legislation ; yet, as
earnest men we are anxious to deter
mine upon the best method of dealing
with th6 intemperance evil. May it not
be possible that, in the effort to prevent
this evil of intemperance by a state pro
hibitory la, we are fostering greater
and more inBiduous evils? Respect for
the courts has been undermined by the
wholesale disregard for law, confidence
in judicial processes has been destroyed
by so many miscarriages of justice, the
rath has been invalidated and perjury
promoted by the effort to enforce a law
which many feel under no obligation to
The condition of things thus brought
about ought tobe appalling to the teacher
of morals, and the advocatesof law and
order. Who is not aware of the great
injury done to organized society by these
persistent and insidious efforts to sub
vert the law? It tends to make officials
two-faced, legislators timid and insin
cere, candidates for office dissimulating,
and when elected, unfaithful and hypo
critical. The effect of this law has been
to rear a class of men who shamelessly
pays fines and bribes and hush money
in order to evade its operation, and an
other class which will just as shameless
ly accept this corrupted money.
I take issue emphatically and sincere
ly with those who would maintain aud
enforce a state prohibitory law. Withr
out the people behind a law, in each
community whereit is to be enforce,thit
law is impotent.
(Letter of Bishop Ball to the Burlington,
Vt.. Free Press.)
You are good enough to ask 'my opin
ion on the present prohibitory law.
Briefly it is this:
1. Experience has shown me that the
law does not prohibit. I, myself, have
had to deal with repeated cases of
drunkenness, some of them habitual,
unhindered, and, to a certain extent, I
believe provoked or aggravated by the
existing law. (Election day in Burling
ton when, if ever, the uninitiated might
expect the law to be enforced, presents
ocular demonstration of tbe fatuity of
2. Prohibition drives underground
the mischief which it seeks to cure,
making it more difficult to deal with
the evil, and impossible to regulate the
trade, as for instance, in the quality of
the honor sold.
3. The present law leads, I believe,
in many cases, to heavier drinking in
clubs and at home, liquor being pur
chased in larger quantities than would
be the casa if it were possible to pur
chase at a restaurant a glass of wine or
4. Especially, perhaps, among the
young, prohibition provokes resistance.
Stolen drinks, not only waters, seem to
possess an added sweetness.
5. Few nersons, I suppose, with any
knowledge of its actual working, will
deny that the law as it exists, is con
netted with a vast amount of hypocrisy
on the mtrt of buvers.seller and ollicials
May not this hypocrisy, being a deeper
and a more wide-spreading evil, ue
greater minchef than tbe intemperance
which it is songht to check I
6. Prohibition, by many 01 its earnest
advocates, is connected with toe notion
that all use(save for medicinal purpose)
of drink that in excess may be iutoxi-
cniing, is wrong. The use of such drink
is in itself no more wrong hau the use
of tobaccj. In either case it is the mis
use which we have to guard against.
Doubtless, with many persons, total ah
stinance (from wine or from tobacco)
may be safest and best. To attempt to
enforce this on all persons is to manu
facture an artificial sin with the risk of
leading mitny persons to think lightly
of what is absolutely wrong.
7. This suggests what seems tome
on the most serious objections to th
prohibition law. It tends to break down
the sense of obligation in the case of all
law, human or divine.
8. Once more; our existing prohibi
tion law I consider foolish and mis
chievous, because it Is largely an at
tempt on th part of one f et of people to
legislate for another set of people. I
recognize to the full the evils of mtem
perance, but I cannot think that the
pi actical expei ience of Vermont, 'New
Hampshire or Maine, is in favor of a
State prohibitory law.

You Will Be Happy if Well.
Bestows that Health and
Vigor that Makes Liv
ing a Pleasure.
If you are sick and out-of -sorts, it Is in your
power to make yourself healthy, strong, and
There is not the slightest reason why you
should go through life feeling sickly , miserable,
languid, and melancholic. To be well and
strong, means happiness and true joy.
If you are sleepless, rheumatic, neuralgic,
dyspeptic, or have the shadows of disease
hovering over you; if you are not as bright,
energetic, and strong as you were some weeks
ago, the use of Paine's Celery Compound will
tone up and fortify your whole system, cleanse
the blood, correct digestion, sharpen the
appetite, and conduce to restful sleep. Thous
ands once in a half-dead condition owe their
present good health to the use of Paine's
Celery Compound. Mr. Wm. S. Gibson, of
Pleasureville, Ky., who, through sickness and
suffering, was brought near the dark grave,
writes as follows, regarding his marvelous
cure! . , ,. ,
" I have been broken down jn health and
strength, nervous system shattered, kidneys
out of order, had nervous and trembling spells
off and on for the last ten years. I have taken
three bottles of your Paine's Celery Compound
and all of the above-mentioned trfhbles have
left me, and I can now do a good day's worn.
I go about my business all day long and it
don't worry me, and I now feel better than I
have in ten years. I have a good appetite,
and can eat and get around on foot as active
as when I was a boy. My age is 65 years."

To Stop Food Adulteration.
Paul Pierce, Superintendent of Food
Exhibits at the World's Fair, snvs that
the food exhibits are to mean something.
These exhibits will show, he sayB, that
a cook is of more consequence than a
congressman. According to Mr. Pierce,
it does not matter so much who makes
the laws if the material and the men ,
who dominate the culinary activitiesof
the nation, are right. . Ttie Food Sec
tion is educational along these lines. It
teaches the" people how to live.
"I want to call particular attention to
the Food Exhibit of the National Asso
ciation of State Dairy and Food Depart
ment of the United States," says Mr.
Pierce. "Here is an Association which
is driving from our midst those vicious
makers and venders of deleterious food
stuffs, whose nefarious products flood
tbe land and consumes the national vi
tality. The exhibit ot the Association
will be 01 valuable service to the great
public in the way of presenting exhibits
which will illustrate what is done in the
matter of adultering foods and how adul
terants may be detected. The food com
missioners are preparing to expose many
specific frauds and adulterations in food
and drink products at the international
food congress. Manufacturers, scien
tists and food officials, not only from
America but from Germany, France,
England and other countries will attend
this meeting. One of the purposes of the
meeting, according to K.M. Allen, who is
Secretary of the National Association of
State, Dairy and Food Departments, is
to expose leading adulterations and
frauds in food and drink products that
are known from investigation of officials
to be such.
"One of the chief aims of the Depart
ment of Agricu'ture, is to present the
processes of preparing thh different foods
properly, in an educational way. I1 or
the use of conventions, in which agri
culture and horticulture play a part, an
assembly hall accommodating over one
thousand people has been provided.
There will be interesting and insiruc
tive lecturef, by dairy men, domestic
science teachers ami theuiiets. Women
Will be taught what an important re
sponsibility is the buying.preparing and
serving of food for their tables. By in
telligent selections of fod, they can, to
a great extent, maintain ' the health of
their families, aud by ignorance, neglect
and indifferences, thev can impoverish
them. Women's clubs throughout the
country, are interesting themselves in
the subject aud they will be here to
spread the gospel of proper living. It is
the desire of Mr. Frederic W Taylor,
Chief of the Department of Agriculture
and Horticulture, to do just such edu
cative things as these."
"Mr. Taylor, speaking on the subject
some time ago faid that, if aii7 one
should prefer axle grease to butter, he
saw no reason why he Bhould not have
the liberty of spreading iton his bread.
But, to doctor the axle grease, so that it
will have the appearance of butter, and
to sell it as butter, is compounding vil
lainy, which ought to send somebody to
jail. The influence of the food exhibits
and the food congresses and conven
tions, will help to expose these prac
tices, and to educate the manufacturer
that true labeling will be a better busi
ness policy than many of the frauds
that are now being worked on the pub
lic. The world is moving on and the
time is not far distant when the food
eaten by man will be as carefully select
ed and guarded as that which is fed to a
