his room for oer a week by extieme
weakness tollowing an attack of bron

With hlr broxchial ttouble theie Is as

l the f"-ar of complications that gives
rise to the apprehension that 1r felt.
Father Coffey suffers no pain, nor is
there any dlsti easing cough, but he Is
greatly depiessed. the indication found
In a sstem that has been Subjected to
the strain and woiry as is true of tho
'active and lahorJous life of the patient.

Iterdav to call in consultation Dr.
'Wheeler, of this city, and Dr. Wehlau.
of Sci anion Both physicians confirm
ed the diagnosis of Dr. Olllls which

would be exceedingly bad in the face
of his depleted condition
The news of Father Coffey's Illness

wishes that he may speedily rally.

A Meritorious Foem by Commnnder
John McComb, of William H.
JDnvies Post No. 187, Hep,irtnicnt
Pennsylvania, O. A. R., Which
Should Do Preserved In Enduring
Form Tho Poem.
Tho Tilbune Is pleased to present to
Its leaders today a Stirling nnd beau
tiful poem bv John McComb, com
mander of William II. Davis post, No.
1ST. (J. A. It., of thlfl city.
The poem, which Is said to conjure
up before the eyes of tho old
soldlets scenes of the llelds which
their valor won nnd which. In paving
tribute to the heroic dead and living,
also touches on tho lesons of bleed
pen(e, was Inspired by the cannon
which are mounted In pietly Memorial
ptik, and which figured In tho awful
tragedv of war among the peoples of
a nation. Tho merits of the effort will
b" readily revealed In the rending of
tho Mitring lines nnd It Is sine to bo
conceded that In them Mr. McComb has
best shown his poetic spirit.
The worthiness of tho poem suppoits
the thought that it should be preserved
In enduring form, such as In tablets of
bionze, one of which to be placed
beside the cannon. Nothing would bo
more pleasing to the (Jiaud Army men
than to see these lines of tbelt com
rade preserved In a form that would be
an ov ei lasting lememlnance of the
sacrifices of the heroic soldiers of the
e.iily sixties, and at the .nine time
would convey truths and lessons tint
would not fall of tesiilts among the
youth to whom they would be brought.

The rip nnd roar of shells that tore

Of Pariott iinkc, with four-Inch bore,
Were frightful peace expounders'
Tha men who heard them shriek and
And saw them huist and fly,
And felt the blood of comiades splosh
Vheio many fell to die,
Con phtuie now the absent ones
Modo vivid by the scene
Where two old-fashioned Pariott guns
Rest harmless on the green.
Through evolution men discard
What onie engendered pride.
But out old poldlers et icgatd
The things thev stood beIdo,
The muzzle-loading annon then
Were styllh In their da.
And o were Springfield musets, when

For In the year of 'Sixty-three

From Octt,vsburg the hosts of Leo

Those guns will call to mind the wajs

And though thev're mute, they yet de

The valor of the men who bear
The Impress of the storm
Of four years' war, In which they

And bj their blood and pi owes', bought

Who wear the daik blue blouse,
Came home with tatteied banners,
Dif tress was In each house.
Our I'nlon's fame has been discussed
Its glories have been told
And children have outlined the trust
Bequeathed from dajs of old,
And we hove seen the sons of sires
Who woio the Blue, and Gray,
Stand side by side In battles' fires
And foreign Hoops dismay.
For friendship now unites the men
Who. forty yenis ago,
With heated blood, weie ready then
Our (lag to overthiovv,
And they who stormed with shot and
The bos who wore the blue,
Would now charge to the mouth of hell
To show they're lojal too.
For Time a mightv change has wrought,
Since these old guns weie made'
And men who then against them
Would w leld a Union blade.
Those foes of old now fraternize
Wherever they may meet;
And nevei fall to recognize
The worth In each complete;
They know the war In which they
Revealed courageous traits
On either side; and they were taught
That our I'nlted States
Must he Intact, If we would hold
The world at loige at hay;
So now they do their best to mould
Their children In that way.

In a great many cases, because they are in a condition of womanly weakness which is
aggravated by exercise. Exercise promotes the physical health. But for the woman
there can be no sound physical health unless the womanly health is sound : so inti-
mato is the relation between local and general health and so absolute is the depend-
ence or the woman s general nealtn upon tne womanly local health. When there is
irregularity, or displacement, or femalb weakness, these conditions must first be re
moved before the general health can be established.
The claim that weak women are made strong and sick women are made well by
the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is a claim supported by the testimony of
more than half a million womon. Women to whom each month brought a week of
misery, women who had suffered for years witnout relief ; women whose vigor had
been sapped by weakening drains ; womon frail of form, hollow of cheek and dull of
eye; these are 'the women who stand up to testify "I have been made well and strong
by the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription." And this is but the barest statement
of the truth. Tho grateful letters received from the women cured by the " Prescrip
tion " disclose miseries which make the heart ache. They tell of years of suffering,
of inefficient medical treatment, often treating tho wrong disease. They show the
modest women shrinking from the horror of questionings, examinations and local
treatments, and enduring a growing agony rather than submit to an ordeal offensive
to her sense of decency and revolting co her modesty. Then some chance pamphlet
or the word of a friend has directed attention to dio cures of womanly diseases by
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. The treatment is begun and health is soon restored.
Many sick and ailing women take advantage of the offer of free consultation by
letter with Dr. R V. Pierce, chief consulting physician to the -Invalids' Hotel and
Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y. This offer, open to all ailing women, puts at
their service the leading specialist in tho treatment and euro of female diseases, to
gether with the associate advice of his staff of nearly a score of physicians, and this
absolutely without chargo or fee. All correspondence strictly private and confidential.
Dr. R. V. PIERCE, Buffalo, N. Y.
WHAT A LUOKY WQMAN
"I had inflammation of tho internal
organs and hemorrhago for thrco months
so that I could not turn over in bed with
out help; and soreness of tho abdomen,
and also bladder trouble," writes Mrs.
Jennie Lee, of Lothridge, Alborta Dist,
N. W. T Canada. "In fact I was a com
plete wreck and tho local doctor's modicino I
would not stay on my stomach, so I had to
stop taking it, and ho told my husband I
had to ho kept quiet and he had but littlo
hopo for me. I happened to pick up a
paper with your advertisement in it, and I
thought that I would try your medicines.
I havo taken seven bottles of 'Favorito
Prescription,' six of ' Golden Medical Dis
covery' and thieo vials of 'Pleasant Pel
lots,' and from tho first day I commenced
with thum I began to get better, and soon
frot as well as ever. I havo told several
adius about your medicines and iccoru
mended thein highly. I think that if I
had not Liken your medicines I would not
have recovered. I cannot praise your med
icines too highly."
There i.i no alcohol in "Favorite Pre
scription," and it is absolutely free from
opium, cocaine and ever; other Jiarcotic,
It it in the strictest sense a temperance mod
.'. , purely vegetable in its composition
id cannot diaayreo with the weakest con-stitution.
"I KNOW THAT THEY SAVED
" I was so weak I did not have breath to
walk across my room," writes Miss Isabell
Miller, of New Provideucc, Calloway Co.,
Ky. " My periods occurred too often and
the hemorrhago would be prolonged and
tho loss of blood very excessive. I also
had fainting fits. I (lid not gain strength
from ono monthly period to another ; was
weak and nervous all tho time. Was con
fined to my bed for three months. Tho
doctor thought at first I had consumption,
after this ho said it was liver disease, and
then ho told mo he did not know what was
tho causo of my trouble, and told mo I
would nover be any better. I lived in
this way from sixteen years old to twenty
three. Thou I was advised by a kind
friend to try Dr. Pierce's Favorito Pre
scription, which I did, and beforo I had
taken two bottles of it I could woik nil
day. I took in all six bottles of the ' Fa
vorito Prescription ' and about fivo vials of
Dr. Pferco's Pellets. I used no other medi
cine. I havo never had a return of this
troublo since, and" never can praiso Doctor
Picreo's medicines enough, for I know that
they saved my life."
Sometimes a dealer for the sake of a
larger profit will offer another preparation
cm "just as good as Dr. PiercJs." There is
nothing just as good as Dr. Pierce's Jhuor
ite Prescription; nothing that will so surely
make weak women strong, sick women well.
a k:other's troubles
"I have been tho mother ot live children,
two of which wero prematura births, and
my health was very poor ever binco until
tho piesent time," wutes Mrs. A. W. Coin
well, of 810 F Stieet, Washington, 1). C.
"Had uterine trouble for six or seven
years. I took local tieatment and different
medicines, but they only gavo mo tempo
rary relief. Had palpitation of heart, weak
stomacli, and all 6orts of aches and pains.
I was advised by fiiends to try Dr. Picreo's
medicine. In October, 1898, I began tak
ing it and felt better after taking a few
dos.es. Havo taken seven bottles of ' Fa
vorito Prescription,' two bottles of 'Golden
Medical Discovery,' three vials of Doctor
Pierce's Pellets, and two of his' Compound
Extract of Smart-Weed.' In August, 1800,
I gavo birth to a strong babv boy. Was
in labor only a shoit time. Jow my gen
eral health is good and I feel btionger and
better in every way than I havo felt for
years. I hhall always feel that I owe my
good health to you and your valuable reme
dies. I thank God for this Favorite Pre
scription ' (woman's friend), and as for tho
Pellets, 1 xooula not be without them, as
they have benefited me more than any pill

Mary E. Wilcox, Kmo (Rainy River), Al

I commenced taking Dr. Pierce's good
medicine and used the local treatment as
advised. I took two bottles of 'Favorite
Prescription ' and two of Goldon Medical
Discovery.' I also sent for one box of your
' Antiseptic and Healing Suppositories.' I
havo only used' two, and that was two
months ago. Havo not' had to ueo any
sinctybut I shall keep them in the house.
I wouldyodviso e.vcry( woman who suffers,
from ulceration of tho uterus and piles to
uso Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.
It is tho best medicine in tho world. Also
writo to Dr. Pierca for his advice. I havo
felt better in these past 6even months than
I have for years. Eveiy month I used to
have to go to bed and have hot poultices
and take laudanum to ease tho pain. I
don't go to bed now, nor do I take lauda
num. Every spring I used to bo tronblcd
with piles, but I did not havo any troublo
of that kind this spring. I keep Doctor
Pierce's Compound Extract of Smart-Weed
in tho house. It is a wondeiful medicine.
" You may publish this if you please, so
