From Stall Correspondent.
Dallas, Oct. 4, Tho heavy clouds
that hid tho sun all day did a trreat
dcnl toward keeping1 tho attendance
down at tho fair hero today, the third
one of tho exhibition given under tho
auspices of the Dallas Pair association.
Thursday Is usually reckoned as the
big day of this fair, and usually there
are fiom live to seven thousand ter
sons on tho grounds. Today a con
servative estimate would bo four thou
sand. Tomorrow, If the sun comes out
In tho morning, there will be many
more hero than Is usual on tho last
day of the fair, many of today's In
tended visitors having postponed their
trip heic for the reason that the
sombre, overcast sky did not look In
viting enough for a long drive. As the
majority of county falr-goors drive In
to the -grounds In their own rigs, that
has to bo taken Into consideration. To
day there were comparatively few
vehicles on tho grounds, most of the'
spectators coming frqm Wllkes-Barre
nnd adjoining towns by way of the
trolley cars. The accommodations fur
nished by the traction company were
woefully Inadequate and the cars were

The Midway was thronged with a
restless, surging1 throng all day, listen
ing intently to the charming fairy tales
told by the persuasive promoters in
front of the tents and oratorical feats
were performed by these silver-tongued
"gents" as they glibly sang the praises
of "The Human Frog," "Kl-Kl, the
Wild Man of tho Philippines," or of
the wonderful acting of the Coontown
Jubilee Show, with Its sixteen hluh

and in such close touch with Scranton.
the crowds that surged up nnd down
the Midway and packed the grand
stand bear a more citified look than is
usual at county fairs. Of course there
are many rural spectators, some of
, whom are adorned with the charac
teristic Populist whiskers pictured In
Y the comic papers, but the great mnjor
t ity are arrayed In up-to-date clothes
and carry themselves with tho swing
and grace that only contact with stone
sidewalks can impart.
One humorist has arrayed himself In
regular country style, as parodied on
the stage, and with an old carpet big
and swallow-tall coat with brass but
tons, a white beaver hat and long chin
whiskers, stands gazing with distended
Jaw and dilated eye upon tho fakirs.
Some of them are halted In their en
thusiastic descriptions of the marvels
they are showing by this artist's gaze

Hypnotists at Work.
There is a new galaxy of tho gentle
men who live by the gullibility of
others hero today. One of these, who
stands on a rough board platform, ap
parently hypnotizes small boys nnd
puts them through a course of antics
as a prelude to selling cheap jewelry.
Another pulls out a roll of $1,000 In
bills as a guarantee of satisfaction to

continued their musical programme to
day, occupying a platform Inside the

Tho trotting track was quite heavy
with dust today, and this, with the
strong wind which blew down tho
homestretch, held the horses back con-
J'seTerably from making fust time.
Th ofllclals In the Judges' stand
were the same as those of vesterdav,
with Starter William IJ. Moore piesld

A Husband's TerrlMc Alternative.
THIS is a story of to-day ; a story of "those who go down to the sea id ships."
The captain had with him in his ship his wife and child. The ship caught fire.
Seizing his child the husband called to his wife to jump, and they leaped into
the sea together. For some time they struggled, the husband upholding the child,
unable to assist his wife. Presently, with a cry of farewell, she sank. The man's
heart was torn in two j one he could save, and only one. As his wife rose to the sur
face he opened his arms and let the waves sweep the child away, while he went to the
succor of the wife and mother.
Truly, a horrible dilemma, a terrible tragedy I Yet there are tragedies as terrible
being enacted every day in this wide land ; tragedies in which, alas I the husband is
helpless, now, and must blindly trust to a stranger's skill.
How, many a husband remembers that loner vigil of slow creeping hours, while the
agonizing struggle of motherhood goes on in an upper chamber. Every time the door
opens he shrinks from the blow he fears may fall on him. With hands clenched, with
drawn lips, he lives out the awful vigil, crying out upon the helplessness of love.
But there is a time when
or death. If, when motherhood

she will find herself grow strong
as the day of trial comes, and
A HUSBAND SAYSi "REFER TO ME."
" I take pleasure In writing to you
about your 'Favorite Prescription,'"
Fricke. of Petersburg, Menard Co.,
"My wife has been sick nearly all her life, and alter
trying everything I could think of, I made up my
mind to try ' Favorite Prescription. I sent to Chi
cago and got six bottles, which my wife took, a
tablcspoonful three times a day, until the baby came.
She felt better after taking the first bottle, and when
baby was born he weighed nine and a half pounds.
To-day he is six months old and weighs twenty-two
pouncls. He is as good a child as anyone could
wish. The doctor says he is as healthy as any baby
could be, and also the doctor says your ' Favorite
Prescription ' was the cause of such a healthy baby.
I felt I owed you this much for the good you did
my wife and myself. I hope you will mention this
to otners wuo may De in neea ot sucn neip, aua you
may refer them to me, as I would be glad to tell
of the good of such a valuable medicine."
Almost every wife needs
some help to prepare her for
maternity. Sometimes the
chief suffering comes
and morning sick
ness. The use
of " Favorite
will stop the

ousness. When the ap
petite fails, and

use of Doctor
will result in
an entire re

A HUSBAND AND A DOOTOR SURPRISED.
"I take pleasure in informing you of the birth of a boy in perfect health, on May 18th, 1899,"
writes Mrs. E. L. Corti, of Waltonville, Penna., Box 25. "I cannot find words sufficiently strong to
express to you my thanks, for my delivery was almost without pain, and when my husband arrived
with the doctor the child was already born. The neighbors who were with me and my husband and
the doctor could uot believe their eyes. Having suffered so much before, I never believed myself able
to be delivered of a living child. I tell everybody this happy event was due to the help of God and
your medicines. I shall never be without your medicines henceforth, and shall never fail in recom
mending your 'Favorite Prescription.' I have used the medicines which you prescribed with
the best results.
Cur hearts are full of gratitude to you for your medicines, which have given us the happiness
of having a living child of our own, after so much suffering and disappointment.
I recommend Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription to all young women who are in the same condition
that I was in as one of the best remedies in existence. I have used eight bottles and find myself
in perfect health. Accept my best wishes for your welfare to the end of your days."
There is another great fact for the consideration of parents, and that is that a child
born of a weak, nervous, anxious mother enters into a legacy of misery with the first
breath it draws. Very often the little one makes a brief struggle against his inher
itance of misery, and then gives up. The use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
makes mothers healthy, and healthy mothers have healthy, happy children.
A FINE BABY GIRL. ,
"I can cheerfully recommend Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription as one of the best medicines for
women." writes Mrs. Marv Murdock. of 220 Tavlor Street. Tooeka. Kansas. "I consider it the best
I medicine made. I know it has no equal. I am the mother of ten children and

this,, however, lightning struck It,

old, but she was always feeble. I tried different doctors, but none of Iheni could'tell what my trouble
was. They said I was well and strong. I was examined by surgeons, but they found nothing wrong,
and they wore puzzled to know what my trouble waa. I did not know what to do, so I thought this last
time I would try Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. I took it the entire nine months, and now have
a fine baby girl, and I cannot praise your medicine enough for the good it did me."
The benefits derived from the use of "Favorite Prescription " are lasting. The gen
eral health is so intimately related to the local womanly health, that when the diseases
peculiar to the womanly organs are cured, the whole body feels the benefit. After years
of weakness and suffering; after years of experiment with treatments and medicines, all
of which fail of more than temporary benefit, women turn at last to Dr. Pierce's Favorite
