THE "WORD STSTEM."
The "word system" ot spelling that
Is now being employed In the public
achoote la coming in for severe con
demnation from the press of the en
tire northwest The Oregoniaa precipi
tated the discussion when it quoted
letters from high school graduates
who had submitted applications for
nnaltlon. Tha Post-Intelligencer and
Tacoma Ledger have brought out the
fault, which lies In the "word system"
above referred to. The Ledger char
acterizes it as Intrinsically and wholly
bad. and adds that It Is the essence
nf stuoldlty. In a spelling book pre
pared for pupils the "word system" Is
exemplified by the following lines:
"Alfed Ten-l-sun wos a po-et;
HI rote a-bout ft king named Ar-thur.
The nalts wer ol-wex kaind, and tuk
car of the sic and or the pur."
On th opposite page appears the
English of this idiocy. The Ledger
maintains that such a production, plac
ed before the youth who is at school
for the purpose of learning. Is an out
race. -, It points out that there Is no
reason for filling the mind of a child
with nonsense and expecting that In
later years It will sift this out for Itself.
The Ledger's indignation runs into
sarcasm when It denounces the method
in the following language:
This country takes pride In Us
chocls. They have contributed much
to iraklng the country what It Is. It
baa no patience, nor any reason for
havlnc patience, with the introduction
Into the curriculum of a blithering
and Inane folly that declares In type
that the "Nalt tuk car ov the pur
and exhibits the decent and seemly
word "kind" disguised as "kaind."
The pupil will make mistakes enough
even when there Is an Intelligence try
ine to guide away from mistakes, rath
er than a plot to lead Into error. If
this "word system," or whatever the
abomination is called, receives me
treatment it deserves, it will be rated
as the visible evidence of a crime.
There Is no more sense In It than
there would be In the plan of making
the pupil believe the sum of two and
two to be five, and then expending
effort in'ma king the mistake apparent.
Schools are supported et considerable
expense, and willingly, but they are
supported In the belief that thoy ed
cate. In so far as they are trying
da exactly the contrary, they should
reformed with all speed. The 11
Wagner style of gvography Is
enough, but a spoiler that docs
sp?U Is worse.
The Cigarnwkers' Official Journal
contains the text of an address to re
tail and wholesale dealers regarding
the operations of the American To
bacco company, which Is and has for a
long time past been engaged in an ef
fort lo secure for Itself monopoly of
the business. The circular points out
that the tobacco trust is notorious!
unfair, In that it refuses to employ
union labor. Py employing child labor
it seeks to produce Its wares at so low
a cost that it can successfully under
sll other manufacturers, and in this
manner drive them out of business or
compel them to sell their plants to the
trust. Its efforts to destroy the union
have been persistent. The cig.irinak-
era" union points cut that the only
hone of combatting the encroachment
of this grasping monopoly lies In the
general refusal of all fnirmlnded re
tailers and wholesalers to handle any
brand of tobacco or cigars that dot-
not hear the union lab.l. In conclu
sion the circular contains this Intelli-
eent appeal to the dealers whom I
seeks to enlist in its righteous cause.
tV Ask vou. In the name of good
sound business policy, and in the name
of hu.nanity as well, to lend us your
moral assistance, to purchase and
handle nothing but union blue label
cigars. In doing so you not only as
sist a worthy cause, but do what Is
of Infinitely more vital Importance to
yourself orotct and preserve your
own business Interests."

AN ALL ABIDING FAITH.
The Illinois Central railroad com
pany has an all abiding faith In thi
future of the great Northwest. A
short time ago, this was manifested by
the establishment in Seattle of an ag
ency to take care iheir interests there.
The latest effort Is to put on a splen
didly equipped new train service run
ning between St. Paul and Chicago.
The new trains will be running Sun
day November 2. They will use their
own rails between Chicago and Albert
Lea, Minn., and the Minneapolis St St
Louis railway track from Albert Lea,
to Minneapolis and St. Paul running
into the union depot at St. Paul, which
is the same that Is used by all lines
in that city.
The train Is to be known as The Chi
cago, St. Paul and Minneapolis Limit
ed and will consist of sleeping car,
buffet library car and reclining chair
car through without chnge between
Chicago and Minneapolis and St. Paul
Dining car service will also be main
tained, supper being served out of Chi
cago and breakfast Into Chicago.
Trains will leave St. Paul at 7:10 p.
m. and arrive in Chicago 9:30 a. m.
Leave Chicago at 6:10 p. m. and ar
rive in St. Paul 9:40 a. m. making
close connection at St. Paul with all
western lines. Tickets can be pur
chased via. this line, in connection
with all western lines, at all stations.

A FINE LIBART.
Of 144 volumes Is found on each of
the Northern Pacific's "North Coast
Limited" trains. Don't forget that
these are the only trains operated In
the West that are lighted throughout
Tho Puritan wife vowed to love, honor ami obey hor husband. She
that "tho husband is tho head oC tho wifo," and she yielded to his will as
We have changed all that. We have, cut the word " obey " out of
the marriage service. We have accepted the doctrine of feminine
equality. Wotneu no longer keep silence in tho church. In business avo
cations and professions they march side by side with men. To-day tho
intellectual equality of woman in frankly conceded, ami yet that puritan
wife, vowed to obedience, whose husband was also her lord, had one point
of equality with the stronger set which tho modern woman has largely
lost j she had the equality of health, and the equality of courage
and strength which enabled her to keep her place at her husbauJ'a
side in times of danger aud of peril
As housewife she was tireless in her industry. As mother she
reared a large family. She knew little of tho aches aud ills which
vex the modern woman who has entered upon the heritage of
woman's rights. Statisticians have called attention to the decrease
in the size of the family. Women shrink from the pangs aud obli
gations of maternity. Tho very pnrticipance of women in out
door sports once termed manly, is only an evidence
of tho fact that she recognizes her physical deficiency
and weakness. But outdoor sports and exercises are
open to comparatively few women, and while exer
cise may promote the health when it is onco estab
lished, it cannot produce health. In fact, where
there is womanly weakness, exercise may bo an
injury where tho weakness permits the possibility of
The first and greatest of woman's rights is the
right to be healthy, the right to enjoy herself as a
wife and to be happy as a mother. Give woman
this and all other features of womanly equality will
take care of themselves.
In hundreds of thousands of oases this physical
equality has been restored to weak and sick women
by the use of Dr. Tierce's Favorite Proscription, the medicine
which makes weak women strong and sick women well.
"My wife used three bottles of Dr. Tierce's medicine, and I never saw
such results," writes A. B. Havocs, Esq., of Aurora. Lawrence Co Mo
"It was wonderful in its work. We had used lots of medicine, also had
one of the best physicians in Aurora, but my wife got no better- we
heard one pitiful groan after another, day ami night. A friend handed
me a copy of Dr. Pierce's book. The Common Sense Medical Adviser
and after reading the testimonials of Dr. Pierce's successful treatment'
and seeing that the cases decrited were similar to my wife's, I bought
for her a bottle of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. Before she lud
taken all of the medicine she was up and helping to do the work. She
has taken three bottles and is now well. Has better health than she has
had for years, so perfectly did the medicine do its work."
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures womanly ills and tho
aches and pains which these ills are the cause of. It establishes
regularity and so gives freedom from the periodic suffering which
so many women endure with each recurring month. It dries
the drains which distress and weaken women. It heals the
gnawing ulcer, puU out the scorching flame of inflammation, and perfectly and
permanently cures female weakness. It also cures backache, headache, nervous
ness, sleeplessness and other ills which are the result of womanly diseases.
No doubt you have forgotten me, but after you have read my letter you will remember
me," writes Mrs. Annie B. Moring, aj8 7th Avenue, S. W., Roanoke, Vs. "In the year 1897.
I wrote you for advice, which you gave me free of charge. Now, Doctor, I will tell you I
was a wreck When I wrote to you I could not walk straight, for pain in my abdomen,
could not t down, lie down, or get any ease at all. I had what was called the best doctor
here, but did not get any better until 1 went through a course of your medicine. I took
eight bottles each of ' Favorite Prescription and ' Golden Medical Discovery.' I kept on
with the 'Pleasant Pellets' after I had stopped taking the other medicine. I took ten
vials of the ' Pleasant Pellets, and I tell you the medicine made a cure of me. My trouble
was female trouble, and I am willing to have you use my letter, for there are other women
to-day that need your medicine, and it will cure them if they will follow your advice."
Sick women are invited to consult Dr. Pierce by letter, free. All correnjond
ence is held as sacredly confidential, and the written confidences of women aro
guarded by the same strict professional privacy observed by Dr. Pierce in his
daily consultations with isick women, at the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute,
Buffalo, N. Y. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.
If you are led to use "Favorite Prescription" because it has cured other
women, do not allow a substitute to be palmed off on you as "just as good."
