Mrs. Leander Lane, wife of the minis

her (laughter has been enabled to resume
her professional work as a teacher after
suffering for nearly three years from se

•• When she was passing from girl
hood to womanhiMMl," says Mrs. Lane,
•• she suffered greatly from difficulties
peculiar to her sex. The physician did
not help her, but a few boxes of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills brought about the
perfect regulation of her system.
, •• While she had escaped from one
grave trouble, she unfortunately began
to overwork, first as a student and then
as a teacher in a large Iowa institution
for orphan boys. She enjoyed her work
and was very enthusiastic, but the strain
finally told on her. She became pale,
weak, nervous, unable to sleep; she had
no appetite and she suffered from se
vere headaches. Then came a complete
breakdown ami her work had to be given

doubted whether she was gaining, but
we noticed that whenever she stopped
taking the pills she fell buck, ami when
ever she resumed the use of them she
revived and so we kept up the treatment
until she recovered her usual health and
was able to take a position in one of our
universities where she is happily at
work. My mother, my daughter and
myself have a well-founded confidence
in the merits of Dr. Williams* Pink Pills
and are always ready to recommend

<jale was quite effective up to the 5tb
inning, when the Medford Grey* had
four tallies to their opponent’s none
He struck out 8 men. After that
Ashland bad them at their mercy.
It was quite^n interesting game
and was witnessed by a big crowd.
Its principal features were the home
runs of Northrop and Thoma-, the
Greys'left fielder and first baseman.
The summary of game is:
Score—Ashland II; Medford 4.
Home runs—Toomas and Northrop.

B Probably the best ball game of the
season was played In Medford Thurs
day, on the grounds of the Athletic As
sociation, between the home team and
the Ashland nine. It was full of excel
lent plays, some of which were even
brilliant, while errors were conspicu
ous by their absence. Medford won
by a score of 4 to 2, certainly a very
good one. Hutton andNorthrop were
the winner's battery, while Jack Clove

the vlsltorsin a like capacity. We re

and played like escapes from a
kindergarten, while their opponeutB

12 to 11 in favor of Gold Hill The
batteries were Brous and Moore

for Jacksonville. Both teams were
short some of their beet players which
will in some measure account for the
poor game put up.

Monday resulted in a sweeping Re
publican victory. Tbe majority thrown
for that party, said to be nearly 20,000,
is the largest ever given in this state.
There was a great effort to make It
such, and it succeeded. Moore for Su

whelming majorties. The same may
be said of Binger Hermann and J. N.
Williamson, candidates for Congress in
