DENIED IN WASHINGTON, j
Washnigton. Feb. 15. The statement
of Earl Rosebery. that in December
overtures were made to the United
States for an alliance, is not substant
iated here. The officials of the admin
istration are at a loss to understand the
report, and express the opinion that
some mistake has occurred. , So far as
the United States is concerned they de
clare that no offer of alliance lias
been made. j
'Tis said that absence conquers love;
But. ohj believe it not,

But thou ?rt not forgot. ' j.;
rpHE day when the girl becomes a woman ; the day when the wife becomes a mother ; the day when the change
JL of life begins; those are womans three days of destiny. At each of these pentidsi of functional change
the balance of health, both of mind and body, is disturbed. There may be only weakness; and nervousness, or
there may be hysteria, depression and dementia, horror of mind and anguish of body. j .
No argument is necessary to prove that woman needs to exercise the greatest care of her womanly health
during these periods of functional change in order to save herself from the serious results which so often follow.
There is a medicine for woman designed to help j her in these critical periods. Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription has helped and healed thousands of sick and suffering women. i j i
It is not a cure-all. .. It is prepared specially for woman's peculiar ailments and acts with wonderful
healing power upon the delicate female organs. It regulates the periods, heals inflammation and ulceration,
cures female weakness; and invigorates the entire womanly organism. It makes the baby's advent practically
painless, and gives abundant vitality to nursing mothers. .
" Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is a scientifically prepared medicine, and within the scope of its purpose
it is without a rival in the lasting benefits it confers upon weak and sickly f women. There are many medicines
offered, for women's use which seem heloful because thev I relieve pam and stimulate the body.

Prescription " contains no alcohol, and is absolutely
free from opium, cocaine,, and all other narcotics.
" NEVER DESPAIR."
' - '. j - 'l ' - . '. . . '
No woman need despair of a cure of the dis
eases affecting the womanly organs if she will
give "Favorite; Prescription "a fair and faithful
trial. The mojst obstinate cases yield to the
action of this great remedy. .
Sick women are invited to consult Dr. Pierce by
letter, free, of charge, and sor obtain the benefit of
the advice of a specialist in diseases of women.
There is no similar offer of free medical advice
which has behind: it an institution like the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute, of Buffalo, N. Y. As
chief consulting jpfiysician to this institution, as
sisted by his staff of nearly a score of specialists,
Dr. Pierce has in a little more than thirty years
treated and cured over half a million women.
All correspondence is strictly private 'and sacredly
confidential. Address Dnr R. V. Pierce, chief

It gives me much pleasure," writes Miss Ella Sapp, of Jamestown, Guil
ford Co., N. C, "to thank -Dr. Pierce for the great good received from the
use of his ' Favorite Prescription and ' Golden Medical Discovery. I had
suffered I for three years or more at monthly periods. It seemed as though
I would die with pain in my back and stomach. I could not stand at all
without fainting ; had given up all hope of ever being cured, when one of
my friends insisted upon my trying Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. With
but little faith I tried it, and before I had taken half a bottle I felt better,
had better appetite aud slept better. Now I have taken two bottles of ' Fa
vorite Prescription and one of "Golden Medical Discovery, and am happy
to gay I am entirely cured, and all done in two months' time when all
medicines had failed to do any good at alL" ,
A Mother's Pangs
ml would like to express my gratitude to you for the benefit I have received
from your wonderful medicine 'Favorite Prescription,' " writes Mrs. H. C.
Anderson, of South Britain, New Haven Co., Conn. (Box 33). "During the
first month of pregnancy I could not keep anything on my stomach. Was
so sick that I had to go to bed and stay for weeks. I tried different doctors,
but with little benefit. I read about many being helped by using your medi
cine so I thought I would give it a trial. I began to take your Favorite
Prescription in November and I had u nice little baby girl mFebrury fol
lowing. My baby weighed over eight pounds. I was only in hard labor
about one hour and got along nicely during confinement ; was up and dressed
on the eighth day. I never had the doctor with me at all ; just the nurse and
one or two friends. My friends thought that I was sick a very short time. I
think Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is indeed a true 'mother's friend,
for it helped me wonderfully.) It kept me from having a miscarriage. This
makes my second child ; with the first one X did not take Favorite Prescrip
tion ' and I had a miscarriage. ! The little one lived just about two monthly
and she was sick all the timej This last baby is as plump and healthy as anyj
mother could wish. She is about three weeks old now and is gaining in flesh
every day." -! . -
Change of Life.
Mrs. M. Barnes, of Balls Ferry, Shasta Co,,, Cal., writes: "My physician
said I was suffering from the effects of change of life.' I had heart disease ;
womb trouble and rheumatism. My head was so dizzy I could hardly stand
up. When I began Dr. Puree's medicines I improved right along. I took
seven or eight bottles of the 'Favorite Prescription. ', a teaspoonful three
times a day, arid the Pleasant Pellets at night. I feel as well as I ever did.)
I take great pleasure in, recommending Dr. Pierce's medicines to suffering
women. I think they are the best medicines in the world. I can't say
enough in their praise. The 'Favorite Prescription cured me after I had
been sick for two years so I was hardly able to be about.

ROOSEVELTS BOYS TRAINING.
They Are Kerpingr Up With the Gov
ernor in Learning the Manly ; Art.
Albany," Feb. 4. Gov. Roosevelt's
two boys are Wonders in the eyes of
their associates at the Albany Acaue
rny.' They are chips of the old block,
and their boxing instructor says they
do not know the meaning of the word
fear. They would just as .willingly
right a boy twice their size as one their
Own size. "Why," said the instructor.
"sometime the kids have an idea they
can lick me, and if they keep on like
hey are now, well, there is trouble
ahead for any one who is looking for it
with them." i 1
The governor's recent experiences
with a professional boxer and wrestler
are familar to the public, and it was
$0 interning a fact to learn that the
chief executive of the empire state was
exercising in this manner that the peo
ple completely overlooked the boys.
But the boys were right in it" all the
time, and Prof. Dwyer put on the pad
dled fives" with them every time he
called on their sire for a little rough
work. After the professor went away
the bovs were without sn instructor in
j the manly art of self-defence, and they
pined tor some one who could teach
them. The governor is anxious to have
the boys Icarn to box. for he believes
in itf as a beneficial and healthful sport
and pastime, which, if properly used,
will produce good physical results. But
Gov, Roosevelt also knows that, un
less properly taken, the exercis; is lia
ble to prove other than good, and
therefore he wishes a competent suc
cessor to Dwyer. Several local boxers
were tried as instntctor and trainer, but
they did not fill the bill, and now, tLe
governor has a young man. consider

A room" on the second floor o? the
executive mansion has, been set aside
for their use." 3 The room' is stripped of
all furniture and carpet, a wrestling
mat being on he floor, on1 which the
governor does his work in private with
his instructor. In the center of the ring
is a punching bag. Th; boys receive
instructions three times a week. Thev
are stripped of all clothing and attired,
in only bathing trunks. One is taken
at a time and he is instructed in the va
rious attitudes to be assumed. The box
er sometimes stands on the defensive
and tells the boys how they must leadj
the feints, crosses, drives and the ad
vantages of quickness of the feet and
eyes in being able to take advantage of
an opening. This is all right, but the!
teacher says he finds it hard work td
make the boys assume the defensive
and resprt'to tactics of getting out of
t'the way of the leads or
i bring them in. . - .
ij "Why, they want to dd the leading
j themselves all the time," e said, "'and
if I make a drive for them, they won't
j get out of the way, but comd right in

derfully well for boys and 1, tell you
they would make many fellows older
