Many a Life Spent in Sufferinif lieeaiiss
Troubles Were Allowed to Develop
At This Time.
Every mother of agrowing girl should
remember tluit there will ooiue a time
when her daughter will be a girl no
longer but will share with her the bless­
ings of womanhood. Unless nourish­
ment keeps pace with growth the founda­
tions of a life of suffering are laid at
that time. Mrs. John MacKinney, of
No. 478 Thirteenth street, Detroit,Mieh.,
writes a timely word. She says :
“ I did not get proper care at the first
critical time in my life and for seven­
teen years I suffered as a result. I had
dizzy spells, felt a constant fear that
something dreadful was alxmt to happen
and was afraid to go out alone. My
breathing was very short and I had pal­
pitation of the heart so badly that I
could not go up stairs nor walk even
moderately fast. I was so nervous that
I could not sit still. At different times
for years I was under the care of the
best physicians in Detroit nnd I tried n
numlter of advertised medicines. Noth­
ing helped me until, on the advice of a
neighbor, I tried Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills
for Pale People. I felt relie vast before
the first box was finished and I kept on
taking them until I was cured.
“ Lsist winter my little girl had rheu­
matism and I gave her Dr. Williaius’Pink
Pills and she got well right away. My
niece was thought to be going into cou-
sumption and, upon my advice, she tried
the pills. They curv'd her cough and she
is now well and strong. My entire fam­
ily are enthusiastic pver Dr. Williams’
Pink Pills for Pale People and we can­
not say enough in their praise,”
These pills effect such cures be­
cause they go to the root of the disease.
Ollier remedies act on the symptoms—
these marvelous vegetable pills remove
the cause of the trouble. They have
proved themselves to be an unfailing
specific for all diseases arising from im­
pure blood and weakened nerves—two
fruitful causes of nearly all the
ills to which humankind is heir. Dr.
Williams’ l*ink Pills for Pale People are
sold in boxes at 50 cents a box, or six
boxes for *2.50, and may be had of all
druggists, or direct from I>r. Williams

Á Serious Accident.
C. W. Parker, of Ashland, who in
company with h*ls brother-in-law, J.
Leslie Corbett, is developing a quartz
mine owned by them on Wagner
Creek, about ten miles west of Ash­
land, was the victim of a frightful ac­
cident from the explosion of giant
powder, Friday afternoon. Mr. Par­
ker at.d a companion, J. H. Gilder­
sleeve, had prepared three charges in
the tunnel, one of which went out.
Parker went back to relight it, when
it exploded. Besides Internal in
juries, the effect of which can not be suffered a compound
fracture of the right ft rearm, a frac­
ture of the knee, one eye is almost
destroyed and the other slightly in­
jured. Dr. H. M. Shaw, who is in at­
tendance, reports him to be in a seri­
ous condition.
Spring Humors

troubles,—pimples, boils and other
eruptions, besides loss of appetite,
that tired feeling, fits of biliousness,
indigestion and headache.

better, and the way to get rid of them
and to build up the system that has
suffered from them is to take

the fact that money is still plentiful

that the hay and grain crop was

Taxes are somewhat higher than

licans. This is unjust. As a matter
of fact, they have managed affairs so
well that they were able to levy two
mills less for county purposes than
they did the year before, besides re­
ducing the county debt considerably.
The increase In the tax rata is en­
tirely due to the last Legislature,
which made a number of very large
appropriations and compelled a levy
for state taxes almost double that of
the year previous. Besides, it increas­
ed the amount to be raised for school
purposes. Taxes would have been

it flowed over the dam.

Rogue River within six inches as it
was during the flood of a couple of
weeks before. Above the dam the
water was higher this year by four
inches than it was at any time last
winter; but this may be accounted for
by the fact I hat last, wi^er one sec­
tion of the dam was nut completed.

Supreme Court and Trust Mag­
nates Dine With President.
Street to President
Roosevelt Re-
Is u jo y
House Hospitality.
The evidence has at last come out
that all the talk of President Roose­
velt’s opposition to the trusts and Wall
street was sheer political buncombe.
The list of guests present at the White
House at the (liuuer on Jan. 28 In hon­
or of the supreme court Included A. J.
Cassatt, president of the Pennsylva­
nia railroad; James Stillman, presi­
dent of the First National bank of
New York and head of the Rockefeller
banking syndicate; Wlllluui F. Draper,
head of the cotton machinery trust;
Representative Llttauer, charged with
illegal profits from army glove con­
tracts; Norman B. Ream, director of
the steel trust, besides other great
financial magnates and corporation
attorneys. As these great banquets
are in the public eye and are exploit­
ed in the society columns of the news­
papers, the invitation to the trusts and
financial'millionalres shows plainly that
all the talk about their being opposed
to the nomination and election of
Roosevelt Is but an endeavor to capti­
vate the “plain people” with the Idea
that the Republican candidate Is op­
posed to the trusts and will Btay their
extortion. The president of the United
States, like other people, does not in­
vite guests with whom he does not
wish to associate or with whom he Is
not on the most friendly terms. The
state banquet to the supreme court is
one of the great events of the Wash
lngton social season, and to be invited
to meet the chief justice and his asso­
ciates is considered a great honor and
much sought after. The guests are
carefully selected and with premedita­
tion. It is therefore strangely signifi­
cant that the president should select
the head of the great Rockefeller syn­
dicate and one of the leading members
of the Morgan steel trust to meet the
judges who have an important trust
case now under consideration and
would. If the administration was real
iy opposed to the trusts, have these
very men on trial for conspiracy in
restraint of trade. Whatever object
President Roosevelt may have had in
thus bringing the judiciary in touch
with the trusts, he li3S most certainly
served notice on the voters that he is
on the moat friendly terms with the
great corporation interests and the
most important members of the Wall
street crowd and the money power.
Those Republican newspapers that
have been attempting to fool the people
Into believing that they had a trust
buster in the White House will soon
have to be singing a new song, the
burden,of which will be that the-great
«tajuf the country are
united In support of fhe party and its
nominee, who alone will conserve the
great business Interests. The exigen­
cies of the campaign may require this
open alliance between President Roose­
velt and the trusts that the campaign
coffers may be filled, without which
the wheels of the Republican chariot
would drag heavily and the voice of
their spellbinders be busbed. The trusts
are still in the saddle and looking for­
ward to another long lease of prosperi­
ty if Mr. Roosevelt Is elected president
of the United States.
A b Uphill Game.
A Republican of any prominence
who openly favors reforming the tar­
iff or curbing the trusts is playing an
uphill game. All the powerful monop­
olies and corporations that are Inter­
ested pour out money to defeat any
Republican who shows independence,
and the great majority of the Repub­
lican newspapers attack him as a
traitor. It matters not that all he de­
sires is to see the most moderate re­
form accomplished and still claims to
believe in the doctrine of protection.
Out in Iowa, Governor Cummins has
declared for what is called the “Iowa
Idea,” which is merely to reform those
schedules of the tariff that shelter the
trusts und possibly carry the reforma­
tion far enough to prevent the trusts
selling cheaper in foreign countries
than to our people, It is reasonable to
suppose that even a protectionist, if
he is not interested in some trust or
monopoly, would favor such a mod-
erate reform. The farmers are de-
mauding It, and those whose lneomes
are limited favor any plan that will
reduce the coijj of living to match their
ability to supply their reasonable ne­
cessities. But the leaders of the Re­
publican party say, “Let well enough
alone," and they control congress, and
the corporations control them, so re­
form is Impossible as long as this
league of the politicians and plunder­
ers is kept In power by the voters.
Farmer* to Be Ignored.
The cry that 1 b going up from the
farmers of the western states for tariff
revision Is to be Ignored or denounced
as tainted with Democracy by the Re­
publican leaders. Reciprocity, humbug
as it is, that Blaine and McKinley saw
might be made useful to ward off the
breakdown of protection, is retired to
the rear and receives no word of com
tnendaUon from the “stand pat" proph­
ets and preachers.
