After the bids had been read, the

pany declared it to be conditional on
the distinct understanding that if ac

euits for inf rinsfement of patent.
This letter gave rise to a general
Kiippositionthat the company was in
tending, if its bid is accepted, to lay
'the warrenite mixture without paying

be certain to follow. By their desired
agreement, the county would have to

LONDON, June 10: The women of
England are doing their duty. They
are taking care of the wounded, or,
if they cannot assist in work of that
kind, they are adding their savings to
promote the good work. They are
knitting and rewln for the soldiers at
the front. The suffn 'sts have given
so little trouble to the government that
it will nn-"--btedly soften the hearts of
those in Parliament, since the mili
tants " have turned all their energies to
aid the fighting men of England, and
so suffrage may soon come after this
terrible war is over."
Thousands of women In America have
overcome their sufferings, and have
been cured of womanly ills by Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription. This
medicine, though started nearly half a
century ago, sells more widely today
than any other womanly tonic. It can
now be had in tablet form as well as
liquid, and every woman who suffers
from backache, headache, nervousness,
pain at times, should take this "Pre
scription" of Dr. Pierce.
Many a woman is nervous and irri
table, feels dragged down and worn out
for no reason that she can think of. In
ninety - nine per cent of these cases it
is the womanly organism which re
quires attention; the weak back, dizzy
spells and black circles about the eyes,
are only symptoms. Go to the source
of trouble and correct the irregulari
ties, the drains on the womanly system
and the other symptoms disappear.
