, Woman's Trials.
The bitter trail In a woman's life I to
be childless. Who can tell Imw hurci the
ItniKKl' niav have been ere she lciirnt, to
realign herself to hr lom'ljr lot? The ab
sence of this link to bind marital life
together, the aineiice of this one pledge
to mutual affection is a common disap
pointment. Many unfortunate couples
Worn estranged thereby. Kven If they
do not drift apart, one may read the whole
extent of their disappointment In the eyes
of such a childless couple when they rest
on the children of others. To them the
largest family does not seem too numerous.
In many caei of barrenness or child
lessness the obstacle to child-bearing Is
easily removed by the cure of weakness on
the part of the woman. Dr. Plerce'i Fa
vorite Prescription has been the means of
restoring health and fruitf ulness to many
barren woman, to the great joy of the
household. In other, but rare cases, the
obstruction to the bearing of children has
been found to be of a surgical character,
but easily removable by painless operative
treatment at the Invalids' Motel and -Sur-
flea! Institute. Buffalo, N. Y., over which
r. Pierce of the "Favorite Prescription"
fame presides. In all case where chil
dren are desired and are absent, an effort
bould be made to find out the real cause,
since It Is generally so easily removed by
Id all the various weakness, displace
snents, prolapsus. Inflammation and de
bilitating, catarrhal drains and in all
eases of nervousness and debility, Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription Is the most
efficient remedy that can possibly be used.
It has to Its credit hundreds of thousands
of cures more In fact than any other
remedy put up forsalo through druggists,
specially for woman's use. The Ingredi
ents of which the "Favorite Prescription"
Is composed have received the most
positive endorsement from the lending
medical writers on MnterOi MmlUn of nil
the several schools of practice. All the
Ingredients are printed in pUtln Knijllnh
on the wrapper enclosing the bottle, so
that any woman making use of this
famous medicine may know exactly what
she is taking. I)r Pierce takes his pa
tients Into his full confidence, which he
can afTord to do as the formula after
which the "Favorite Prescription" is
made will bear tho most careful exam
ination. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are tho
best and sufunt laxalivb fur women.

for a trip through some of the count

to speak at several commencement
exercises and other meetings. He

Rev. Van Dyke, who has jnst re
turned from bis missionary labors in
Asia, visited the school on Wednesday
morning. He gave an interesting
account of the work done, by the mis
sionaries and schools on the Malay
Peninsula where he was stationed.
In one of the schools for boys at
Singapor, where Rev. Van Dyke
worked for some time, there were
1000 students and among tbem were
represented 89 different languages
While the students, one and all,
have been busy preparing themsolves
for life's duties, the little intruder,

at this time were Mr. Anderson and
Mies Minear, two of our most popular
students. They were married on
Monday at Medford. It was indeed a
surprise to the family and students.
Tuesday evening a few of thU
friends gathered at the teiupoiary
home of the happy, newly weds, on
Alida street and spent a pleasant even

others have been mortally wounded by
cupid's arrows, but the effects are not
expected to show in such a virulent
form, at least it is thought that they
