mistress, having neither" par out nor

She resided, when she felt like it,
with her Uncle Henahaw and her aunt,
in Washington, Sometimes the paid to
'New York and her grandmother a

an admired aprotator at the horse

Oty of Mexico or up the Nile; any
where her fancy "pleated, dragging
along by a gilded chain her eouslu,
Julia Henahaw, and aoine conventional
chaperon of eminent respectablHtf
and impartial blindnea.
Neecrtheless, however much one
might think to the contrary, Margue
rite Carroll waa aa wholly disnntlsflvd
with existence as could be a woman
who ponaesaed neither weaHh nor
health, birth nor beauty. She did ex
actly aa ahe wished, yet would have
preferred to be one man's loving alave.
She loved the world, yet would rather
have been shut within aome cage of
home, auhject to the beck and call ol a
lord and maater. Her aoul waaatarved
for love. She eighed for the heart Ilea
of an adorer whom ah could heraelf
adore and found It not. The ennui
of a aatlety which has drunk up the
wine of pleasure unlll one looka upon

love. Under the blue Ice of her habit

had not read, or fancied she could read,

her undeniable but marble beauty.
flhe had no soul, all her suitors aaid, as
one by one they relinquished the seem
ingly lmponsihle task of klndrlug a Are
upon the frigid altar of her heart.
Therefore, at laat, from the crucible
of her discontent, of her Increasing
yeara, of the unrequited cravings of a
nature ardent at the cfire, had
emerged a woman who sought to re
venge herself upon mankind by art
fully awakening passions she did net
return, by arousing hope she nur
tured only that she might uproot. Hhe
declared a secret war agninat the race
of what Mm. Sarah flrand ha dublied
"mere man," and pursued her cam
paigns vindictively. Since It waa de
nied to her, alone among women, to
find the aoul mate she wnuM select, she
would at least be happy in the making
of mankind miserable.

on tnv feet ten minutes at a time. Had f illing of uterus and kidney and liver disease, and waa
so weak am' nervous I could not keep still. Would take nervous spells and almost die at times
at least I thought I was Lmiug to die. I bud several different doctors attending, but they cou d
not do me any good. The lust one I bad said I would never get up again. Told lnm I was tak
ing vour ' Favorite Prescription ' and ' Golden Medical Discovery, and he said, Might as wel
take' that much water eacli d iv.' I did not listen to what lie said, but thought to myself I would
give the met Heine a fair trial.' Ik-fore I had finished the first two bottles I was able to get out
side the house and walk around the vard. I kept on taking the medicine and it cured me of my
disease. I was the mother of one little girl, three years old, then, and now I have another fine
hihv girl, seven months old, nnd am in verv good health. Was in bad health about three years
(since the birth of my first child) ; tried all kinds of medicine recommended to be good for my
trouble but all of no avail. I felt it mv duty to write nnd tell you what good your medicine
had done for me, for I well know that'if it had not been for Dr. Pierce's medicines, I would
have been in mv grave long neo. I know I could not have lived long in the condition I was in.
1 think Dr. Pierce's medicine the best in the world for diseases of women."
There are a groat many women who have tried other medicines in vain and been
told by local physicians they could not be cured, as was Mrs. Dorradaile. Such
women are hard 'to persuade to try Dr. Pierce's Pavorito Prescription. But let
every such woman, no matter how sick and discouraged, remember that "Favorite
Prescription " stands alone among medicines for tho cure of womanly diseases. It is
noted for its successful cures of diseases which no other medicines have been able to
reach. It owes its popularity often to the fact that tried as a last resort it effected a
perfect and permanent cure. Hundreds of thousands of women testify to these
cures, and it can be positively aflirtned that in ninety-eight cases out of every hun
dred the use of Dr. Pierce's "Favorite Prescription will result in a complete cure of
" I used four bottles of your ' Favorite Prescription ' and one of ' Golden Medical Discovery,'
writes .Mrs. Klnier U. Shearer, of Mounthope, Lancaster Co., Pa., "and can say tluitl am cured
of that dreaded disease, uterine trouble. Am in letter health than ever before. Everyone who
knows me is surprised to see me look so well. In June, when I wrote to you, I was so poor in
health that at times I could not walk. You answered my letter then nnd told me what to do; I
followed your advice, and to-day am cured. I tell everybody that, with God's help, Dr. Pierce's
medicines cured me."
If you are discouraged and feel the nee d of medical
advice, Dr. Pierco invites you to consult him, by letter,
free. All correspondence is strictly privato and sa
credly confidential. Address Dr. Pierce, Ijtiffalo, N. Y.
Sometimes a dealer, tempted by the little more profit
paid on the sale of less meritorious preparations, will
olTer a substitute for "Favorite Prescription" as "just
as good." Judged by its record of cures of womanly
ills, there is no other medicine just as good as "Fa

Slavery is natur.illy abhorrent to a nation whose
constitution declares all people to bo born equal tinder
the law and to have cqtt.tf right to life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness, lint slavery is most obnoxious
when it fastens its bonds on women. If it were known
tint one American woman had been carried into slavery
by Moor or Arab, the United States would rescue that
sin Me ei-ive if it took its whole navy and combined
army to effect her deliverance. And yet this United
States teems with women slaves, for whom nothing can
be (lono by the government. When a woman toils
cverv dav, from morn until night, year after year, and
gets' nothing for her labor but food to cat, clothes to
wear and a roof to shelter her, what is that but slavery?
That is the lot of many a woman in this free land.
She is a household drudge. She has no money to
spend. She takes no holidays. She slaves and saves
to help pay for tho home, to enable her husband to pay
for another eighty acres, or for some other domestic
purpose. She loses her sight over the cooking stove
and her strength over the wash tub, and not infre
quently when the last payment on house or land is
made, she herself pays 'the debt of nature and leaves
the result of her labors to a now and younger wife.
It is this household slavery of American women that
may be held as largely responsible for the prevalence
of womanly diseases. Common feminine ailments are
ncMeeted and allowed to grow until they involve the
general health, and to tho burden of Elavery is added
the weight of almost constant pain. The back aches.
Them are bearing-down pains. The nerves are shat
tered. Appetite fails and nights are sleepless.
Tho form slowly loses flesh and the cheeks grow
hollow. Tho one blessing left to the hard-working
woman is health. If health is lost, tue greatest
boon would bo to find it again.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is commended
to women by women as a health-restoring medi
cine. It cures the womanly diseases which under
mine the strength. It establishes regularity, dries
weakening drams, heals inflammation and ulcera
tion, and cures female weakness.
