A GOOD THING
For Women to Remember
That in addressing Mrs. Pinkham they
are communicating with a wonuin a wo
man whose experience in treating woman ' ,
ills is ereater than that of any living physi- i!
cian male or female.
A woman can talk freery to a woman
when it is revolting to relate her private
troubles to a man besides, a man does not
understand simplv because he is a man.
Many women suffer in silence end drift
along from bad to worse, knowing full well
that they should have immediate tssist
ance, bnt a natural modesty impels them
to shrink from exposing themselves to the
questions and probable examinations of
even their family physician. It is unnec
essary. Without money or price you can
consult a woman, whose knowledge from
actual experience is greater than any local
The following invitation is freely offered;
accept it in the same spirit:
Women suffering from any form of fe
male weakness are invited to freely com
municate with Mrs Pinkham, at Lynn,
Mass. All letters are received, opened,
read and answered by women only, thus
has been established the eternal contidence
between Mrs. Pinkham and the women of
America which has never been broken and
has induced more than 100,000 sufferers to
write her for advice during the last four
mouths. Out of the vast volume of exper
ience which she has to draw from, it is
more than possible that she has gained the
very knowledge that will help your case.
She asks nothing in return except your
good-will, and her advice has relieved
thousands. Surely, any woman, rich or
poor, is very foolish if she does not take ad
vantage of this generous offer of assistance.

LETTER TO HIS COLLEAGUES
HI Parted of Service Longer Than Thai
of Any Former Chief Justice A Sue
oeaaor Baa Not Yet Been Named.
"Washington, Oct. 18. Associate Jus
tice Stephen J. Field today formally
retired from the supreme court of the
United States, after 84 years of service
in that tribunal. The correspondence
between Justice Field and the president
whioh was made public today, shows
that his resignation. . was tendered in
April last. J President McKinley, how
ever, did not respond until October 9.
While Justice Field's resignation
does not take effect until December 1,
he will not again sit on the supreme
court. ; - " ... ' "
His colleagues of the supreme "oourt
today called upon him and expressed
regret at his retirement and extended
their congratulations upon his long
eervioe as assooiate justice the longest
on record. :. ' '
The following letter was given out
this afternoon: .' ,
"Washington, Oct. 16. Dear Mr.
Chief Justice and Brethren Near the
close of the last term, feeling that the
duties of my long office had become too
arduous for my strength. I transmitted
my resignation to the president to take
effect on the first day of December
next, and this he has accepted with
kindly expressions of regard. My ju
dicial experience ooveVs many years of
Bervioe. Having been elected a mem
ber of the supreme court of California,
1 assumed that office October 18, 1857,
holding it for five years, seven months
and five days, the latter part of the time
beina chief justice. On the 10th of
March, 1863, I was commissioned by
President Lincoln justice of the supreme
court of the United States, taking the
oath of offloe on the 10th day of. the
following May. . .
"When my resignation takes effeot
my period of service on this bench will
have exceeded that of any of my prede
cessors, while my entire judicial life
will have embraced more than 40 years
I may be pardoned for saying that dur
ing all this period, long in companion
with the brevity of human life, though
in retrospect it has gone with the swift
ness of a tale that is tol '. I have not
shunned to deolare in every case com
ing before me for decision conclusions
which mv deliberate oonviotions exer
cise of suoh abilities and requirements
as I possessed.
''It is a pleasant thing in my memory
that my appointment came from Presi
dent Lincoln, of whose appointees 1 am
the last survivor. Up to -that time,
there had been no representative here
from the Paoific coast. A new empire
had risen in the West, whose laws were
those of another country. The land
titles were from Spanish and Mexican
grants, both of which were often over
laid bv the claims of first settlers. To
bring order out of this confusion, oon
cress nassed an act providing for an
other seat on this bench, with the in
tention that it should be filled by some
one familiar with these conflicting
titles and with the mining laws of the
coast, and it so happened that, as I had
framed the principal of these laws, and
was, moreover, chief justice of Cantor
nia. it was the wisbiiif senators and
representatives of this state, as well as
those from Oregon, that I should sue
ceed to the new position.
"Few appreciate the magnitude of
our labors. . The burden resting upon
us for the last 15 or 20 years has been
enormous. The volumes of our reports
show that I alone have written 620
opinions. If to these are added 57 opin
ons in the cirouit court' and 865 pre
pared while I was on the supreme oourt
of. California, it will be seen I have
voiced the decision in 1,043 cases. It
may be said that all of our decisions
have not met with the universal ap
proval of the American people, yet it is
to the great glory of : that people that
always and everywhere has teen yielded
a willing obedience to them. That fact
is eloquent of the stability of popular
institutions, and demonstrates that the
people of the United States are capable
"As I look back over the more than
a third of a oentury that I have sat on
this benoh, I am more and more im
pressed with the immeasurable import
ance of this court. Now and then we
hear it spoken of as an aristocratic fea
ture of a republican government. But
it is the most democratic of all. Sen
ators represent their states, and repre
sentatives their constituencies, but. this
court stands for the whole country, nha
as such, it is truly of the people, by tiie
people, and for the people.
"It has indeed no power to legislate,
It cannot appropriate a dollar of money,
It carries neither the purse nor the
word. But it does possess the power
of declaring the law, and in that
founded the safeguard which keeps the
whole mighty fabric of government
from rushing to destruction. This
negative power, the power of resist
ance, is the only safety, of a popular
government, and it is an additional as
surance when the power, is in suoh
hands as youTB. ' . . ;
"With this I give place to my suc
cessor, but I can never cease to linger
in memories of the past. Though we
have often differed in our opinions, it
has always been an honest difference,
whioh did not affect our mutual re
gard and respect. '' These many 1 years
have indeed been years of labor and of
toil, but they have brought their own
rewards, and we can all join in thanks
giving to the author of our being thai
we have been permitted to spend sc
muoh of our lives in the lervioe of our
onntry. STEPHEN J. FIELD."

.Unique Honor to a Woman.
The only woman who ever received
the freedom of a Scotch city is Miss
Jessie McEie, of Dumfries, : who re
ceived this honor in company with Mr,
Balfour, first lord Of the treasury, from
the mayor of her town. This signal
distinction has been bestowed on her as
a mark of the respect and gratitude of
her fellow citizens for her efforts to-
improve and beautify the town of Dum
fries. As there are only two other
lady burgesses in the United Kingdom
) the inhabitants of Dumfries could
hardly have ohosen a more flattering
method of conveying their appreciation
of Miss MoKie s generosity;
.Miss Lettice Ilbet, who has this
year obtained a first-class in the Ox
ford final-honors school of modern his
tory, is a daughter of Sir Courtenay
Ilbert, K. C. 8. I. The early years of
Miss Ilbert's life were spent in India
but on the return of Sir Courtenay
Ibert to England to take up the post of
assistant parliamentary counsel Miss
Ilbert became a pupil at the Baker
street High school. In 1893 Miss
Ilbert passed the higher examination
of the Oxford and Cambridge join
board, and in the following year she
went up to Somerville College, Oxford
where she obtained the Margaret Evans
prize. Not satisfied with her brilliant
career at Oxford, Miss Ilbert has de
cided not to rest on her laurels, and
has just been elected to. studentship at
the London School of Economic.
