his magazine Mr. Lewis represented
that he would subscribe to the capital
stock a dollar for every dollar sub
scribed by all others, m that he would
own one-half of the capital stock and
that later he represented that he had
pledged his entire fortune, every dollar
lie had. and his publishing business in
this banking enterprise, and that his
subscriptions would exceed a million
dollars, the Inspectors found that Mr.
Lewis had not co-operated to the ex
tent of a single dollar of his own
money, although the bank had been In
operation several months, and had a
paid up capital stock of $2,866,000.
Continuing, the statement says:
"The Inspectors found that Mr. Lewis
had made an admission to that effect
to the bank examiners April 3, 1905.
The inspectors and their office force In
St. Louis made a careful checking of
the subscription books, finding that on
March 15. 1905. Mr. Lewis had received
and held as payment for shares of
stock in the bank 52.2S9.044. and had
accounted to the bank in xn amount
not exceeding 52.204.994. This showed
that every cent of the 52.008.880 capital
stock which had been paid in was paid
out of subscription money received by
Mr. Lewis from the public, and that
none of his own money had been in
vested In the enterprise.
"This was found to be the fact, al
though Mr. Lewis had stated in writing
to the inspectors that J495.7S0 of the
$600,000 paid in at the original incor
poration of the bank were his personnl
funds. Subsequently, at the hearing
before the Assitant Attorney-General.
Mr. Lewis admitted that the money
was received by him from the people
and was not his own.
"Although asked to do so at the
hearing. Mr. Lewis failed to produce
any evidence "whatever that any of his
personal funds had gone into this en
terprise. Mr. Lewis stated at the hear
ing that the directors had never re
fused to make a loan he requested.
"The most important of the repre
sentations were that all of the funds
of his bank would be loaned by a com
mittee composed of three directors
each from the live principal banks of
"The evidence showed, and Mr. Lew
is admitted it. that hundreds of thou
sands of dollars were loaned to him
self and his various enterprises: that

ed, but that the loans had been made
practically at Mr. Lewis' -will."

Early statements regarding the bank
were filled with hope and promise. In the
Woman's Magazine for July. 1504. 4 was
stated by Lewis:
"Since my article appeared in our last
Issue over 10.000 subscriptions to the paper
stock of our bank have been received.
. . . I am to turn nearly everything I
have Into cash, outside of my stockhold
ings in my present publishing business.
and expect to subscribe for at least
51.O0O.OCO of the stock of our bank. I must
lay cash, exactly the same as you do. for
my stock, as there Is no 'promoters stock
In this bank. When It opens its doors
there will be a dollar In cash in the vaults
for every dollar of capital stock and every
rioliar of my profit will go to Increase the
reserve of the bank each year.
"Already the enormous success of the
bank Is assured. One banker of Chicago,
offered to place 51.CO3.000 of our stock In
a single day. A San Francisco banker
subscribed for 5500.CCO of the stock, but
was permitted to have only 5300. and If
any of my readers fall to get in before
all the stock is subscribed I shall not let
this banker have the 5500.000 of stock."

tells how her son was made to profit
by what his father had learned:
"My husband was always fond of cof
fee, and after his business took him
frequently Into a German community
he drank it more, with the result that
his kidneys became affected, and he
suffered greatly with pains and de
spondency, till, as he says, 'coffee near
ly killed me" So he stopped using it.
and began to drink Postum Coffee. It
cured him: and In a very short time hl3
kidneys resumed their normal func
tions, his pains were allayed, and the
despondency which had nearly driven
him crazy ceased to trouble him.
"My little boy. a year old. had suf
fered ever since he was weaned, from
stomach and bowel troubles. He could
not properly digest the milk he drank.
It passed out of his bowels In hard
lumps, sometimes large and again like
small pellets, frequently producing di
arrhoea, and then we would have to
call in the doctor. But the trouble re
turned, again and again.
"We used to give him a taste of
Postum Coffee occasionally, and as I
saw that he relished it and realized
how much good It had done his father.
I began to put a little In his bottle of
milk. The effect was so salutary that
I gradually Increased the quantity, till
at last I used only enough milk to give
it color. Her thrived wonderfully on

his digestion is all right. Postum has
made him uncommonly large and
strong and healthy. I give him a bot

Many of the busy, well-meaning, but
not - fully- informed general - practice
doctors fail to recognize the cause of
symptoms that are plain reading to the
specialist who has devoted more than
an ordinary lifetime to the study and
treatment of women.
Many practitioners, who are well
informed and skillful in the treatment
of fevers and other acute troubles have
not had time and opportunity to con-
siaer ana learn the meaning of women's ;

treating them for "dyspepsia," "heart '

A proper remedy like Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription-, specially de
signed for and directed to the seat of
these diseases would have saved the
patient incalculable suffering, much
time and many dollars.
It is well said that "a disease fully
understood is more than half mas

understand and successfully treat thou
sands of these cases every year. In
many of them "Favorite Prescrip

cases too complicated by delay and
mistreatment they have at their" com

THE SECRET OCT.
To refute the manv false and malici
ous attacks, bogus formulas and othei
untruthful statements published con
cerning Doctor Pierce's World-famed
Family Medicines, the Doctor has de
cided to publish all the ingredients
entering into his "Favorite Prescrip
tion" Tor women. Hereafter every
bottle of these medicines leaving the
great Laboratory at Buffalo, N. Y., will
bear upon it a full list of all the in
gredients entering into the compound,
made entirely from native roots, barka
and herbs. The ingredients of the
"Favorite Prescription" is prepared
from Blue Cohosh root, Lady's Supper
root, Unicorn root, Golden Seal root
and Battleweed root. The exact work
ing formula for making this medi
cine cost Doctor Pierce and his ela
borating chemist and pharmacist many
years of study and experiments but as
perfected they produce almost perfect
pharmaceutical compounds embodying
all the active, medicinal principles re
siding in the roots employed, and
this too in such form and combination
as to keep unchanged in any climate.
The use of alcohol is entirely avoided
in their manufacture and instead an
agent is employed which possesses val
uable medicinal properties, being a
demulcent, anti-ferment and nutrient.
