INDIVIDUALITY IN JAPAN. .
It la Itroac la the People That Are
Hat Oaly Imitator, Bat flay
Idea of Their Owe.
The Japanese have so long been
called "imitators" that the term
gounds trite. Hut it ia one of thoae
trite expressions of a half truth. Aa
a matter of fact, says Anna X. Men-
jamin, in Ainslee's. it ia impossible
' for a race which has such a strong
I individuality to be merely imitative.
Ita wonderful metamorphosis of the
laat 30 yeara cannot be accounted for
(by such a simple, statement. The
Japanese imitate, yea; but what they
imitate tiecomes a part of them, and
aa it ia absorbed it ia adapted and
I changed. How else could the country
I through thousanda of year hatve re-
rnained so almolutely different from
every other country? Again and again
it received impulses from Corea and
China; it very shutting itself oil
from the west was an individual acl
which allowed strength. Its Una)
frank admission that in many ways
the west was anead of It requires
quite aa much. I think of a "jlnrlk
isha" man in Tokio who talked learn
edly with one of -his paasengers on
the. subject of history, literature, etc
The man wag much impressed, and
asked the coolie to leave his work
and come to live In his house, where
he might study. The eoolie thought
a little while, und then replied that
he could not because he would be
obliged to give up bis Individuality
As it was, nobody expected anything
of him, and therefore he could live
just aa he liked. It waa better so. 1
know also a talented artist who wai
trained in the exquisite art'of block
rutting for print. When the revo
lution of lefts took away his employ
ment, he found that he could no long
er pursue bla calling nccorling to his
old ideals, bather than give theae
up, he decided to lie a boatman, and
for years piled a crait, like a common
eoolie, up and down the Sumiiia river.
Then a publisher who recog;ii-d his
talent made a place of responsibility
for him in nis eHtabnahment, and the
artist-bnutman returned to hia old
work in the old way, his ideuls uu-
dimmed. , ij.fj

term "benefit of peerage" implies. A

mutters cf public welfare. For treason
or felony he tan demand to be tried
by bis peers; be cannot be outlawed
in any civil action, nor can he be ar
rested unless for nn indictable offense,
and he ia exempt from serving on
Jill ies. He may sit with his hat on in
courts of justice, and should he be liu

a writer in the New York Herald. Set

"Dry dny, eh?"
1 merely nodded my head aflirmay.
"IVi you drink, young man?"
I said 1 didn'l mind if 1 did.
He said he would mind, though.
"I-urt hermore," he continued, "1 a.j
turpriiid that a man of your modest
appearances, with eyes denoting Chris
tian breeding, a f. .rehead denoting
good moral character nnd a mouth t.io
pure to withstand the taint of Intem

in the (low itig bowl."

And other working women know what it is to Lave work that must do
done at once and yet cannot be done without great physical suffering.
There are times when a woman's condition is such that every pressure of
the foot on the treadle of the sewing machine means sharp suffering.
The typewriter, too, must keep ot her post even when the keys of tho
machine blur into a confused blotch of black and white before her aching
eyes, and every touch of her fingertips jars her nerves almost beyond
endurance. It's the same with every kind of woman's work. There aro
times when it can only be done at the expense of great Buffering. In
such cases there is a strong temptation to spur the flagging energies by
the use of a little stimulant, or to take some nerve-numbing drug to dull
the present pain. Either practice is dangerous and may prove deadly.
The need of the woman is not stimulation but strength, not to numb tho
nerves but to nourish them.
Dr. rierce's Favorite Prescription perfectly satisfies the need. It
works wonders for weak, run-down, worn-out, over-worked women,
whether they work at home or abroad, in factory or m
office, school-room or store ; whether they eit all day at
the sewing machine or at the typewriter. It contains no
alcohol and is entirely free from opium, cocaine and all
other narcotics. It is purely vegetable and a powerful
invigorating tonic. It makes weak women strong and
sick women well. It cures nervousness, backache, head
ache, sleeplessness, mental anxiety, despondency and
other maladies which are but the consequences of disease
of the delicate womanly organism.

medicine," writes Mrs. Nancy C. Dodd, of Red Top, Dallas Co.,
Mo. "I was not able to sit up all dav and had been sick atmut
three months when I first wrote to you for advice. Had tried
two different doctors but they failed to cure me. One said that I had
nertteu Heart and stomach trouble lrom my mother. I had smothering El l(j
biiu iiiiciT c.ciy sot e-ney -icmi nuui n. ixi pain ill Mis 01
head and my stomach would pain me after eating. I could eat nothing
bin crackers and these would hurt -me. Had pain in right side; coiiiil
not be moved without suffering excruciating pain. Life wns fast be
coming a burden to me, as 1 ha i given up all hope of ever being better
until death would end my sufferings. What I suffered, Isith in mind
and body, cannot be imagined. Hut fur my unlxundl faith in God's
goodness and mercy I doubt not 1 would have given up and died. I
was so weak, nervous, and down-hearted, I thought I would have to
leave my husband aud little ones. Never a night was I free from
worry. Had female weakness, cold hands and feet. After spending;
almost everything for doctor bills, and having read so much aliout Dr.
Tierce's medicines, I concluded to try his 'Favorite Prescription.'
Took two bottles und then wrote to Dr. Tierce for his advice. Got a
prompt reply, advising me to take bis ' Golden Medical Discovery ' and
' Pleasant Pellets' nnd to use l)r S.nre's (Vinrrh Ncmedv Ioch'Hv f-
inflammation of the uterus. I followed the directions given, and took nine ottles of the
' h'nvorite Prescription,' five of Hie 'Go! Jen Medical Discovery,' six vials of the 'Pleasant
rellets, and used also one bottle of the ' Catarrh Remedy,' a9 directed. I improved fast
while taking bis medicine. 1 can now do my own work for my family and bike ill sewing
and any kind of work. My sister came to see rot; she said two years back she did not think
I would ever be straight any more, that I was drawn over in my shoulders; but my shoulders
are not drawn over now."
" I take pleasure in writing to let vou know the great good I received from your 'Favorite
Prescription ' nnd 'Pleasant Pellets,' " savs Mrs. Nora Gaddie, of Rio, Hart County, Ky. "I
took seven or eight bottles o avorite Prescription ' and one or two vials of the ' Pellets.'
1 liink I would have lieen in m, grave had it not been for your medicines. Now I thank you
a thousand times for your advice. It has lieen aliout four months since I took the medicine
I was all run-down, had loss of appetite, could not sleep at night, was nervous, had backache,
black SH)ts on my limbs, and sick headache all the time. I have not had sick headache since
I took your medicine."
Dr. rierce's Favorite Prescription establishes regularity, dries weakening drains,
heals inflammation and ulceration and cures female weakness. It encourages the
appetite, tratupiilizcs the nerves and induces refreshing sleep.
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets should always be used with " Favorite Prescrip
tion " whenever a laxative is required, as they assist the action of that remedy.
They are small in size and easy and pleasant to take.
Sick women are invited to consult Dr. Pierce by lcttcr.ree. All letters are held
as strictly private, and tho written confidences of women are guarded by the same
strict professional privacy observed by Dr. Pierce and his staff in personal consul
