In Southern Kansas.
Tn years gj be was a prosperous
farmtr, hoked op to by bis neighbors as
a man of tnor than average ability, and
of strict inlfgri:y and boneety. Wnen
the alliance movement started in Kansas
there was not a man in tbe state with
greater influence and among the masstt
thin B. H. Clover. He was president ot
the state Alliatce and vice president ol
the national Alliance. Tbe growth ol
the order was phenominal, au 1 it
increasing rapidly ia Kansas. The lead
era ol the Alliance bad a power over tbe
rural popa'ation of ibe stale that could
not be anticipated, much less met uud
Ia tbe councils of tbe Alliance leaders
Mr. Clover was one of the foremost, if
not the foremost man. Ia 1SS9 tbe Al
lis nee bad gonj into to'ilics ia bis
county and carried it. Thrn they an
nounced tbe intention of goiog into olber
csunties, and miking a conquest of the
state- Their wonderful success is t mat
ter h ia ory.
Mr. Clover waa a leading candidate for
governor, but did not secure the nomina
tion. He was nominated for congress in
the Third district and surprised tbe pop-
alar and powerful BLsbop W. Perkins by
defeating him by a mirity of 4,430
votes.no'.withstsn lirg lbs fact that there
waa no such thing as fusion thought of
at that time between tbe peoples parly
and tbe democrats. Tbe democrat party
in Kansas bad been for many years in a
hopeless minority, and astute nd un
scrupulous leaders of that party, saw an
opportunity by a fasioa with the peoples
party to eesk so mo political benefit for
themselves and a gang of political farm
era, with more of the gift of gab than poli
ticil honesty, got coitrol of the peoples
party, and in order to consumate a fa
siondeal. Ban Clover, who bad at least
made an honest and c jnscien' ioas repre
sentative in congress, was turned down
for a second term to make a place on tbe
ticket for a democrat, and Jeff Hudson, a
jack-leggei lawyer, waa given tbe nom
inatioo, and toe Alliance or people
party, which while standing alone bad a
majority in almost every county ia tbe
state, beg&n irom that time to diaintri
gate and go to pieces. Clover and tbe
other founders of tbe movement found
themselves discredited and put aside to
make places for a lot of political vsgs
bonds, whose ideas of reform wss to get
tbe beet office tbey could for themselves,
and then make all tbey ceuld out of it.
Hia fight against fusion gained for bim
the bitter enmity of those of his party
wbo were determined lo rell tbeir organ
ization to siUsfy tbeir own personal
ends, and a bitter perfection was begun
on Ben Clover which ruined him finan
cially, broke op his bome and finally
bounded bim to death

thing that offends tbeir fine sense of deli
cacy. And for that reason numbers of such
women have suffered in secret and ia

Pierce's method of treatment is a boon be

all female disorders and diseases, " Favor

every hundred cases, no matter how obstin
ate or complicated the disease may be.
Any woman who needs more 1ielp may
write to the Doctor for his free counsel and
advice. Sucli letters come from thousands
and are treated with absolute privacy.
' I write these few lines hopiug that some
other suffering woman will try Dr. l'ierce-a med

l'argo, Cas Co.. X. Dak. " I had female weak
ness very bad! v. so I had to be in bed part of the
time. I was tired and sick all the time, could
not do my housework : had fainting spells, ner
vous headache, backache and pain iu my left
side when I would lie down ; 1 had pains and
nches all over. I commenced taking Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription and had not taken two
bottles when 1 able to be around again and
do my work, with no pain. I have taken five
bottles of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, two
of his 'Compound Kxtract of Smart-Weed.' and
several vials of his Pleasant Pellets.1 I am feel
inn better than I have for a (treat mnnv years.
I thiuk Dr. Pierce's medicines are the greatest

When the bowels are obstinate, take Dr.
I'ierce's Pleasant Pellets. They don't gripe.
