IT WAS our weddlnff Journey. W
had come up to Ban Franelaco on
our way to New York by rail. The
journey aa rather too coitly for the
Income I enjoyed, but, alail I had
"You can pjet aralperi' ticket!," a
friend had aoid to me, "they will acre
enouifh to pay 1'uH-min fare."-
I had arnail knowing ' calpera'
ticket. Of their chenpneai I had often
heard, but of their power to demoral
ize a man and chHiie rerythin( that
la hie, from hla name to hia character,
I knew nothing.
I had taken a atateroom 1n which
wo were to hava a week of fur honey
moon quite to oliraelvea. A little be
fore train time I went out to Inveatl
rats the matter of aralpera' ticket!.

them. "Here are two ticket! (fo" l

I looked at them hurriedly there
wai no time to low. It wa a laidiiK
worth while. Twenty dollara would
nearly pay for the atateroom.
I took them. He tucked them, Into
n envelope. I paid him the money
and hurried back. The Ufe waa
about to leave and my wife waa wal
Irtfr at the ladlea' eilt. We got aboard
with all haute and were ahnrtljr on
our way to the depot. When we were
on the train at laat I looked at the
two tlcketa. That for my wife had
been leatied to one Mlaa llrldget Mur
phy. "Mlw Itrlilfet Murphy!" I aoftly
exclaimed. "What do that mean?"
I limited the half-yard of euutMHia
and the regulation! of the company.
The ticket had evidently been bought
by Mlaa Murphy. It waa good from
Reattli to New York via Ran Fran
elaco. Bhe had ed It to the latter
point and then aoid It, for aome rea-
on, to the acalper. The thing that
worried me waa the fact that the
ticket waa not traniferahle, according
to the contract on lt face. Mlaa Mur
phy niual prevent It heraelf and 111
dorae It In the preaenoe of the con-
duclor. If any other endeavored to
uae It the ticket waa forfeit to the
company. The train waa under way
I excuaed mM'aelf and went to the
moklng room. Sitting there quietly
I examined the other ticket That
waa aigned one 8am. flwackhammer.
It wai the handwriting of a blaek
amlth and not eaay to Imitate. It had
a alcdge hammer awing to it. The
truth came clear to me after a UtlTe
thouirht. A araliM-ra' ticket was one
a man paid for partly in money and

not afford to buy new tickela and
fur the real of the trip, I muat be Mr.
Hwarkhammer and my wife a lady of
the name of Murphy. I prranme my
firat name waa Samuel, tint the man
had writ leu it Sam. I inuat manage
It loinehow and quickly. I took out
in V pencil and tried to Imitate the
rliinwv algnature. At eonn aa I got
the awing of It I hitatened to my bride,
She had a happy aiulle and waa look

"Well, I got the wrong ticket! Some

muat make thr beat of It now. Juat

"What a horrible name!" the aald
with a aiirh.

In a moment there were teara in

opportunity it gave me t-j ntuily further-the

"Shall vou want another atate

Aa he opoke my mind -went up to ita

not do for Mr. Hwackhammer to oc

I felt ai if eoroebody had opened a

"Why, no you won't," aaid Mlai Mur

There is not a woman who would not be glad to i.ty
this burden of ill-health ; to exchange the dragging sup, mc
sensitive nerves, the pain-racked body, for a body glowing
with abundant health. That exchange is made possible by
the use of Dr. Tierce's Favorite Prescription. In the many
letters received by Dr. Tierce from women who have been
cured by the use of his " Favorite Prescription," there is one
phrase constantly recurs: "I feci like a new woman.

there is a failure to express ail the happiness that health nas
brought, the writers fall back on the time-worn words ex
pressive of absolute and entire change and improvement
of physical and mental conditions.
" Hefore I commence! to tise your iiieilii inc I wis in a bail con
ilition (for eight years) nml four doctors tre-tcil me," writes lUrs.
Hettie Askew, of" Gnrvshur, Northampton Co., N. C. "Tliey of

I have ustil five bottles of ' Favorite Prescription' and five hollies of
the 'Golden Medical Discovery,' and four vials of the 'Pellets..'
Now I feel like a new woman, and I want the world to know it."
"I Biiffi'ied with female weakness about eiht years tried several
doctors hut derived no benefit until I Ix-jran using Dr. Pierce's l a-
vorite Prescription," writes .Mrs. John Green, ot Danville, ISoyle lo.
cine wa3 recommended to me by other patienis,
like another person."
The wonderful curative properties of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription are best
displayed in the cures of chronic diseases, which local physicians had treated
without success or pronounced to be absolutely incurable. The cure of Mrs.
Graham, as told in her letter given below, is an illustration of what has been
done for hundreds and thousands of weak and sick women. Here is a case of a
woman who had never seen a well day since she reached womanhood. Thysicians
agreed that hers was an incurable chronic disease. And yet by the use of "Fa
vorite Prescription " Mrs. Graham was restored to perfect health, and with a gain
in weight of forty-five pounds to witness to the reality of the cure.
"I am just as well now as I was when I came into the world," writes Mrs. P. A. Graham, of
617 Race Street, New Orleans, La. " I will put it at that anyway for I cannot remember ever
seeing a well dav since I became a woman twenty-five years ago), until six months ago when I
began the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and ' Golden Medical Discovery,' and ' Fleas
tut Pellets.' They are the best medicines on earth made for women and their complaints. No
matter what the disease may lie, even if called incurable by doctors. I was treated by several
country phvsicians and also had some of the best city physicians to presenile for me. They
all said my case was incurable, lx ing a chronic disease of long standing. I had been sick for
eight years until six mouths ago, when I commenced with Dr. R. V. Pierce's medicine, and it
brought me out to where I am now, from ninety pounds to one hundred and thirty-five. If
any sufTering woman will write Dr. Pierce he will write her a fatherly letter and give her good
advice, and if she will follow his instructions will find out in a very short time that she has
been mistaken by putting her trust in home doctors."
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription establishes regularity, dries weakening
drains, heals inflammation and ulceration and cures female weakness. Its use
will carry a woman in comfort through that trying period known as the turn
of life. It soothes the nerves, encourages the appetite
and induces refreshing sleep.
Kick women, especially those suffering from chronic
forms of disease, are invited to consult Dr. Pierce, by
letter, free. All correspondence is held sacredly pri
vate and strictly confidential. Address Dr. R. V.
