A Woman Who Hao Suffered Tolla
How to Find Relief.
The thousands of women who suffer
backache, languor, urinary disorders
and other kidney Ills,
will find comfort In
the words of Mrs.
Jane Farrell, of 606
Ocean Ave., Jersey
City, N. J., who says:
"I reiterate all I
have sold before In
praise of Doan's Kid-
ney Pills. I had
been .having heavy
backaches, and my general health was
affected when I began using them. My
feet were swollen, my eyes puffed, and
dlssy spells were frequent. Kidney
action was Irregular and the secre-
tions highly colored. To-day, how-
ever, I am a well woman, and I am
confident that Doan's Kidney Pills
have made me so, and are keeping

The Real Ruler.
The duchess of Roxburghe, who was
Miss May Ooelet of New York, has
taken up the prevalent craze to collect
animals and she Is building a minia-
ture too at Floors castle. In fact, the
duchess, a masterful little lady, has
everything she wants. One of the
duke's tenants, wishing some conces-
sion, went to the castle and told his
errand to an old retainer, adding that
he would like to see the master in
person. "Eh. mon," retorted the aged
servant, who Is not entirely reconciled
to the new order of affairs, "there Is
only ae malster In this hoose thae
times and that's no' the dulce. Ye
should see the duchess.”
Mark Twain tells this story, the
moral of which you may supply your-
self: "I went to church one time and
was so Impressed by what the preach-
er told me about the poor heathen
that I was ready to give up a hundred
dollars of my own money and even go
out and borrow more to send to the
heathen. But the minister preached
too long, and my enthusiasm began to
drop about $25 a drop till there was
nothing- left for the poor heathen, and
by the time he was through and the
collection was taken up I stole ten
cents off the plate."—Southwestern's

Women's Opponents Succeed in Kill-

PREMIER BANNERMAN- FAVORS MEASURE
In a Speech He Declared That on
Many Quaationa Opinion of Women
Waa oT Equal if Not Greater
Value Than Men—Party Lines
London, March 9.—The "women’s
enfranchisement bill" which came up
for Its second reading in the house
of commons Friday and which was
Introduced by Mr. Dickinson, liberal,
although practically identical with the
measure Introduced by James Ke!r
Hardle, socialist, last year, has evoked
far greater general Interest. The bill
simply provides that women shall
have the franchise on the same terms
upon which it Is now granted to men.
The militant tactics of the women
suffragists of recent months and their
bold raids on the bouse of commons
Itself from which on several occa-
sions they have literally been bodily
thrown out and scores of them im-
prisoned, have given the question a
prominence which It hitherto had not
attained. The house of commons was
crowded when the debate on the pro-
posed measure began but on.y wo-
men whose good behavior was guar-
anteed by numbers of parliament
were permitted to enter the gallery.
A11 those who were connected with
the recent disorders within the pre-
cints of the houses of parliament
were specifically excluded and, In
view of possible disorderly demon-
strations on the part of the so-called
“suffragettes" In connection with the
bill, extraordinary precautions were
taken by the police to bar the ap-
proaches to the- house of commons.
The forces inside and outside the
building were doubled and a special
detachment of police was held In re-
serve In the nedghborbood In spite or
the fact that the militant women had
announced that they would quietly
await the vote in the house, after
which they would meet and decide on
their future action.'
The suffragists societies were very
active throughout the morning, try-
ing to Insure the attendance of all
true supporters of the bill and they
claimed to have 430 members pledged
to vote for it. All members who
were considered to be in tne least
lukewarm In the matter were admon-
ished by telephone or telegraph Fri-
day morning that their seats would
be endangered if they failed to ful-
fill their pledges.
There were no fewer than 1C mo-
tions hostile to the kill placed on
the table, while Just prior to the open-
ing of the debate a petition signed by
21,000 women was presented protest-
ing against granting parliamentary
suffrage to women on the ground that
it would destroy their influence in
their own sphere of work.
After Mr. Dickinson's opening
speech in support of the bill the
premier. Sir Henry Campbell-
Bannerman announced that it was the
intention of the government to leave
the question to the free decision of
the house. Personally, he favored the
general principle of the inclusion of
women In the suffruge. The matter
had assumed more Importance of
late years owing to the larger part.
In which women had taken in wa~e
earning and In the professions. On
many questions, continued the pre-
mier, the opinion of women was of
equal if not greater value thun that
of men. He frankly stated that he
was not enamoured with the present
bill because It would not enfranchise
to the necessary degree the mass of
the working class woman and work-
men’s wives. He would vote for the
bill, however, as a declaration of h's
opinion that the exclusion of women
from the franchise was not expedient,
justifiable, or politically right.
The debate was a repetition of the
familiar arguments for and against
female suffrage and there was a com-
pute divergence from the usual party
lines, and the reject'on of the bill be-
ing moved by Mr. White, liberal, an-
other opponent being Mr. Cromer,
also a liberal, whil • both conserva-
tives and members of the labor party
were found among Its suppporters.
An attempt was made to close the
discussion hut the speaker d dined
to accept the motion ami the oppon-
ents of the-bill held the floor until 5
o'clock, when the sitting was closed
automatically. They thus won the
day as this pract cully kills the hill
at the present session.

“Dave's wife lead that gush, and a

Girl Hsd Running Sorts from Eczsms
—Boy Tortured by Poison Osk—
Both Cured by Cutleurs.
"Last year, after having my little
girl treated by a very prominent phy-
sician for an obstinate case of ec-
zema, 1 resorted to the Cuticura Rem-
edies. and was so well pleased with
the almost instantaneous relief afford-
ed that we discarded the physician's
prescription and relied entirely on
the Cuticura Soap, Cuticura Oint-
ment, and Cuticura Pills. When we
commenced with the Cuticura Reme-
dies her feet and limbs were covered
with running sores. In about six
weeks we had her completely well,

In our family poisoned his hands and
arms with poison oak, and in twenty-
four hours hiB hands and arms were
a mass of torturing sores. We used
only the Cuticura Remedies, washing
his hands and arms with the Cuticura
Soap, and anointing them with the
Cuticura Ointment, and then gave
him the Cuticura Resolvent. In-
about three weeks his hands and
arms healed up. So we have lots of
cause for feeling grateful for the Cu-
ticura Remedies. We find that the
Cuticura Remedies are a valuable
household standby, living as we do

The‘Value and Importance of Ethical Remedies.
Remedies which physicians sanction for family use, as they act most beneficially and
are gentle yet prompt in effect, and called ethical, because they are of
Known Excellence and Quality and ol Known Component Parts.
To gain the full confidence of the Well-Informed of the world and the approval of
the most eminent physicians, it is essential that the component parts be known to and
approved by them, and, therefore, the California Fig Syrup Company has published for many
years past in its advertisements and upon every package a full statement thereof. The per-
fect purity and uniformity of product which they demand in a laxative remedy of an ethical
character are assured by the California Fig Syrup Company’s original method of manufacture,
known to the Company only.
There are other ethical remedies approved by physicians, but the product of
the California Fig Syrup Company possesses the advantage over ail other family laxatives
that it cleanses, sweetens and relieves the internal organs on which it acts, without
disturbing the natural functions or any debilitating after effects and without having to
increase the quantity from time to time.
This valuable remedy has been long and favorably known tinder the name of
Syrup of Figs, and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, anil as its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well
known to physicians and the Well-Informed of the world to be the best of natural
laxatives, we have adopted the more elaborate name of Syrup of Figs aqd F.lixir of
Senna, as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtlessly it will always be
called for by the shorter name of Syrup of Figs; and to get its beneficial effects,
always note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company—California Fig Syrup Co.—
plainly printed on the front of every package, whether you simply call for Syrup
of Figs, or by the full name, Syrup of Figs and Elixir of. Senna, as Syrup of Figs
and Klixir of Senna is the one laxative remedy manufactured by the California Fig
Syrup^ Company, and the same heretofore known by the name, Syrup of Figs, which
has given satisfaction to millions. The genuine is for sale by all leading druggists
throughout the United States in original packages of one size onlv, the regular price
of which is fifty cents per bottle.
Kvery bottle is sold under the general guarantee of the Companv, filed with the
Secretary of Agriculture, at Washington, D. C., the remedy is not adulterated or mis-
branded within the meaning of the l-'ood and Drugs Act, June 30th, 1906.

The Ills peculiar to women, take different forms.
Some ladles suffer, every month, from dark rings round their eyes, blotches on their skin and tired
feeling. Others suffer agonies of pain, that words can hardly express.
Whatever the symptoms, remember there Is one medicine that will go beyond mere symptoms, and
act on the cause of their troubles, the weakened womanly organs.
