WHAT IS MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN A MOTHER'S LOVE? '
SO much has been fcritten by the standard medical au-
thorities, of all the several schools of practice, in
praise of the native, or American,, medicinal plants
wliich enter into the composition of Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery, that in attempting to quote from the
various works on Materia Medico, one hardly knows"wbere
to commence, since they are so voluminous that only the
briefest and most imperfect reference can be presented in a
short article like this.
Briefly then let us say that the "Golden Medical Dis
covery" was named from the sturdy little plant Golden
Seal, the root of which enters largely into its composition.
Besides this most valuable ingredient, it contains glyceric
extracts of Stone root, Queen's root, Black Cherrybark,
Bloodroot and Mandrake root.
Finley Ellingwood, M. D., an eminent practitioner of
Chicago and Professor of Materia Medico, in the Bennett
Medical College of that city, in his recently published work
on Therapeutics, says of Golden Seal root : "It is the most
natural of stimulants to the normal functions of digestion.
Its influence upon the mucous surfaces renders it most im
portant in catarrhal gastritis (inflammation of stomach) and
gastric (stomach) ulceration."
Many other authorities as well as Dr. Ellingwood extol
the Hydrastis (Golden Seal), as a remedy -for catarrhal dis
eases of the nasal passages, stomach, bronchia, gall ducts,
kidneys, intestines and bladder. Among these, we may
mention Prof. John King, M. D., author of the American
Dispensatory; Prof. J. M. Scudder, M. D.f in his "Specific
Medication" ; Dr. Hale of the Hahnemann Med. College of
Chicago; Grover Coe, M. D., of New York, in his "Organic
Medicines," Dr. Bartholow of Jefferson Med. College, Phila.,
and scores of other leading medical writers and teachers.
All the foregoing eminent authorities extol the curative
virtuesof Golden Seal in cases of stomach, liver and in
testinal weakness, torpor and ulceration of bowels. Dr.
Ellingwood recommends it most highly, "In those cases of
atonic dyspepsia when the entire apparatus, including the
liver, is stagnant and inoperative." He also extols it most
highly in the many weaknesses and derangements peculiar
to women and says, "It is a most important remedy in many
disorders of the womb." Golden Seal root (Hydrastis), is
an important ingredient of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip
tion for weak, nervous, "run-down" women.
But to return to the "Golden Medical Discovery" it
may be said that its curative properties are not wholly de
pendent upon Golden Seal, valuable as it is, as other equally
potant ingredients add greatly to its value and in fact are
not less important than the Hydrastis, or Golden Seal.
In all bronchial, throat, lung and kindred ailments,
Stone root, Black Cherrybark, Queen's root and Bloodroot,
each plays as important a part in effecting the phenominal
cures of "Golden Medical Discovery" as does Golden Seal.
All these ingredients have the endorsement of prominent
practitioners of' all schools of medicine for the cure of dis
eases of the bronchia, throat a&d lungs.
Of Queen's root, Prof. King says: "An alterative
( blood - purifier) unsurpassed by few if ah other" of the
known alteratives. Most successful in skm and scrofulous
affections ; beneficial in broochial affections ; penaaaently
cures bronchitis; relieves irritations ; an important cocgh
remedy; coughs of years' standing being cured ; aids' in
blood-making and nutrition and nay be taken without
harm for long periods."
Queen's root, Golden Seal root, Stone root, Black
Cherrybark and Bloodroot, all articles extolled by leading
practitioners of all the -schools, as the very best of cough
medicines, are made especially valuable when combined with
chemically pure glycerine which greatly enhances the cura
tive action of all these ingredients in all bronchial, throat
and lung affections, severe coughs and kindred ailments.
Who can doubt the efficacy of such a compound, when
scientifically made up, as in Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery? Who can doubt that it is a most effective rem
edy for the several diseases for which its ingredients are so
highly recommended by the formost writers on Materia
It is in the cure of the more chronic or lingering, per
sistent, and obstinate cases of bronchial, laryngial and lung
affections, attended by hoarseness and severe cough, which
if neglected or badly treated would generally have run into
consumption, that "Golden Medical Discovery " has woh the
highest praise from all who have observed its marvelous
control over these and kindred affections. It is no cheap
compound made-up of trashy ingredients for free distribu
tion, that curious people may experiment upon themselves
as with the many fake nostrums so commonly sent out as
"trial bottles." It has a forty 3ear record, embracing many
thousands of cures behind it, is sold at a reasonable price
and may be found in all drug and medicine stores in this
and many foreign countries.
It will be seen from the above brief extracts how .well
"Golden Medical Discovery" is adapted for the cure of all
blood diseases, as, scrofulous and skin affections, eruptions,
blotches, pimples and kindred ailments; also that it is
equally good in all Catarrhal affections"no matter where
seated, and for all cases of indigestion, or dyspepsia, torpid
liver, or biliousness and as a tonic and invigorator in all
manner of weaknesses, and in nervous debility and prostra
tion the above extracts amply show.
Much further information as to the properties and uses
of "Golden Medical Discovery" and Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription for weak women, will be found in a little book
let of extracts 'from standard medical books which will be
mailed free td any address on request, .by letter or postal '
card, sent to Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.
. All the several ingredients of Dr. Pierce's medicines
will be found, from the reading of this little booklet, to
have the strongest possible professional endorsements and
recommendations for the cure of all the diseases for which
these medicines are recommended. No other medicines for
like purposes have any such endorsements. They are non
alcoholic, non-secret, safe and reliable.
"Who raa to kelp be wfcen lfell
Aad wosld seee pretty story tell.
- Or km tie place to mice it well,
A MOTHER'S worries are many. She sometimes, for
gets her oki bodily discomforts because f. her over
poweriHg love for the child. She becomes broken
down, sleepless, nervoss, irritable and feels tired from
morning -until night. Many Mothers of experience cart, tell
you that at such a time they have been relieved, benefited
and strengthened and put into proper health by taking a
prescription which their mothers had told them was the
best woman's tonic and nervine to be taken at such times.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription has enjo3-ed an enviable
reputation for oyer a third of a century. "la all that time it
has sold wore largely in the United. States than any other
tonic for woman's needs. Dr. Pierce made up this pre
scriptioa from native medicinal roots without the use of a
particle of alcohol and for the single purpose-of cunng those
diseases peculiar to women and when there is a lack of
womanly strength to bear the burdens of maternal duty.
How few women-come to this critical time with adequate
strength. The reason why so many women sink under
the strain of motherhood is because they are unprepared.
Is preparation then required for motherhood? asks the
young woitt. And every experienced mother answers
"Yes." "I unhesitatingly advise expectant mothers to'
use Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription," writes Mrs. J. W.
G. Stephens, of Mila, Va. The reason for this advice is
that Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is the best prepara
tive for the maternal function. No matter how healthy
and strong a woman may be, she cannot use Favorite.
Prescription " as a preparative for maternity without gain
of health and comfort. But it is the women: who are not
strong who best appreciate the great benefits received from
the use- of "Favorite Prescription. J' For one thing its use
makes the baby's advent comparatively painless. " It has in
.many cases 'reduced days' of- altering to a, brief few hours.
It has changed the period of anxiety and: Struggle into a
time of ease and comfort.
A DUTY WOMEN OWE THEMSELVES".
"Good actions speak, louder than words," so, too does
the testimony of many thousands of women during a third
of century speak, louder than mere claims not backed by
4 any such record of cures.
v Miss Emma Pett-, 1x26 S.- Olive Street, Indianapolis,
Ind., Past Vice-President, Daughters of Pocahontas, Min
.neola Council, also Organist, South Baptist Church, In
dianapolis, writes: "For several years I suffered from female
weakness, which was a serious drain on my vitality, sap
ping my strength and causing severe headaches, bearing
down pains and a'general worn-out feeling, until I really
had no desire to live. I had many medicines recommended
to me and tried many, but did not get permanent relief
until I took Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. ' In tw
months I was much better and stronger, and in four months
I was well. Have had no more disagreeable discharge, no
more pain; so J have every reason to praise Favorite Pre
scription.' I consider it without an equal for ills of women."
All the ingredients entering into Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription are printed in plain English on each bottle
wrapper.. Dr. Pierce thereby shows that he is not afraid to '
tell his patients just what this medicine is made of. This
is not- true of-any other medicine especially designed for the
cure of woman's peculiar ailments. The "Prescription" is
also the only woman's medicine sold through druggists
that does not contain a large percentage of alcohol; it con
tains not a drop.
As an indication of the high esteem in which the medi
cal profession are coming to regard the several ingredients
of which Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, for weak, and
ailing women is composed, we have room here to insert only
Dr. John Fyfe, of Saugatuck, Conn., Editor of the
Department r of Therapeutics in The Eclectic Review
says of Unicorn root Helonias Dioica) one of the chief in
gredients of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription: "A remedy
which invariably acts as a uterine invigorator and always
favors a condition which makes for normal activity of the
"entire reproductive system, cannot fail to be of great use
fulness and of the utmost importance to the general practi
tioner of medicine."
"In Helonias we have a medicament which more fully"
answers the above purposes than any other drug with which
I ant acquainted. In the treatment of diseases peculiar to
women it is seldom that a case is seen which does not
present some indication for this remedial agent."
"The following are among the leading indications for
Helonias: Pain or aching in the back, with leucorrhcea;
atonic (weak) conditions of the reproductive organs o!
women, mental depression and irritability, associated with
chronic diseases of the reproductive organs of women,
constant sensation of heat in the region of the kidneyst
menorrhagia ("flooding"), due to a weakened condition of
the reproductive system; amenorrhcea, arising from or ac
companying'an abnormal condition of the digestive organs
and an anaemic (thin blood) habit; dragging sensations ia
the extreme lower part of the abdomen."
If more or less of the above symptoms are present, no
invalid woman can do better than take Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription, one of the leading ingredients of which" it
Unicorn root, or Helonias.

State Central Committee yesterday after
noon ami will bead tb executive depart
ment of the party during the coming
campaign. The action was taken nt an
adjourned meeting of the committee,
which convened at JO o'clock in the morn
ing, but postponed action until afternoon
In order to give the members an oppor
tunity to consult with the nominees and
unite upon a chairman. The rosult of the
conference was the selection of the name
of Mr. Westgatc. and his election was
by unanimous vote. There was no othor
name mentioned before the committee for
Proprietor or Albany Herald.
Mr. "Wcstgate is proprietor of the Al
bany. Herald, nnd one of 'the stanch Re
publicans of Linn County. In bringing
his name before the committee. F. V.
Waters, of Salem, chairman of the "sub
ordinate committee appointed to consult
with the party nominees, announced that
the selection had been .made by Dr.
"Withycombe. the gubernatorial nominee,
and that It had been concurred in by
Mr. Bourne. Mr. Duniway und other mem
bers of the state ticket.
Before the committee held Its nrst
meeting yesterday morning it appeared
that George A. Steel would bo the choice
for the chairmanship. His name had
been agreed upon by many of the can
didates, as well as a portion of the com
mittee members. Then objections began
to be heard, mpst of them based upon
the fact that Mr. Stecf Is the Republican
nominee for State Treasurer, and that a
nominee should not till the chairmanship.
It was also rumored that opposition to
Steel had come irom the Bourne ramp,
where It was understood that the day
before there was only acquiescence.
Selection of Wcstgate.
When the committee convened no agree
ment had been reached, and adjourn
ment was taken until 2 o'clock In the
afternoon. Before adjourning, however
F. "W. Waters. G. A. Westgatc and A. C
Marsters wore appointed to confer with
the candidates In regard to the chair
manship, and W. S. Duniway. W. W
Btelwer. John Fox. W. W. Banks and
W. J. Church were appointed to draw
up resolutions and embody them in the
jform of a platform.
The selection of Mr. Wcstgate came
as a compromise between members of
the committee and the party nominees.
Previous to his selection no name was
mentioned which raet "with accr& from
both sources. George W. Staplcton was
prominently considered, as vat aUejt.
R. Ho go and Edward Nexvbegln. The
only objection to Mr. Westgate came
from C- A. Dannemaij. of Gilliam Coun
ty, who desired to sec a Portland man
1111 the place. When he was assured
that the .headquarters would be main
tained in this cjty he withdrew his
objection, and upon motion of W. S.
Duniway. the election was carried by
Confident of Success.
In accepting the chairmanship. Mr.
AVestgate said that he felt confident
that every Republican in the state, as
well ad tho committee members, would
work in harmony for the election of
tho regular nominees. "I not only
hope that we shall have perfect har
mony throughout the campaign, but I
know that we shall." he said.
' The committee on platform reported
that it had not had sufficient time to
complete its work, but that It would
probably be ready to report early in
the week. The matter of holding rati
fication conventions was also consid
ered, and the general sense of the com
mittee seemed to be that mass meet
ings in the various counties would be
preferable to a state convention. Jo
action was taken on the subject.
Resolutions of Thanks.
Before adjournment the committee
passed the following resolutions:
"Resolved, That the thanks of the
Republican party of Oregon are due
Hon. Frank C Baker for the energetic
and highly effective services rendered
by him as chairman of the Republican
State Central Committee during the
past three years.

been thoroughly sytematlzed nnd Is
dolus splendid work. Several Oregon
doctors have stayed there to help him.

walked to the ferry umld the ruin?,
conveyances being hard to get.
Through all that district the fire was
still raging- among the debris. In
places there were regular furnaces of
fire. We kept to the middle of the
street, so as to avoid the falling walls
and half burnt telegraph and telephone
poles. We tried to walk on the side
walk in one place, but found that so
hot that we had to take to the road
way again. This was after the rains
we had during parts of Sunday and
Monday nights. It was dark when we
reached the ferry. The only lights In
the city of San Francisco were the
tires still burning-, but they were still
brilliant enough to light up a large
section of the waterfront district. It
was a gruesome scene, with the mass
of people in the totally dark ferry
house. The lights of the approaching
ferryboat looked very good to us.
"Any description of the rufnR of San
Francisco Is beyond words. It was
hard for us to get over the sense of
unreality of feellnK that we were not
walking among the ruins of some an
.clent city that had been dead for n
thousand years. While a, framework
of a building Is standing here and
there, yet the ruin Is so complete that
only by counting streets and figuring"
out the landmarks still existing- could
we locate any part of the city.
