SOUTH SCRANTON NOTES.
Bloomsburg Team Did Not Appear to
Piny Final Game of Series with
Several hundred enthuslusts who hud
gathered In St. John's hall, on Stone
avenue, last evening, to witness the de
ciding game between the homo Defend
ers and tho Bloomsburg champions,
were sadly disappointed when, Instead
of the players appearing In the arena,
at the moment set to "play ball," Mr,
Mcarnth, manager of the Defenders,
stepped forward with n telegram In ills
band and announced its contents,
It was to the effect that tho Blooms
burg team could not bo present, nnd
there was a good deal of annoyance
and disgust manifested at their failure
to keep the agreement.
Tho abovo teams have phul'd two
games, nnd ench tenm won on their
own ground. Last night's match was
to decide tho championship of this sec
tion. For that reason thero was an un
usually lunre attendance and conse
quently all the nioro disappointment.
A game has been arranged for next
Thursday night, between the Defenders
nnd the Allentown players.

TUB CROWN of womanhood in motherhood.
But uncnay lien tho head that wears tho crown or
nnticipatcn this coronation, when thoro is a tack of
womanly strength to hear tho burdens of maternal
dignity and duty. And how few women cbmo to
this critical timo with adequato strength. Tho
reason why so many women sink under tho strain
of' motherhood in becauso thoy aro unprepared.
Is preparation then required for motherhood?
asks tho young woman. " And overy experienced
moiher answers 'Yes." "I unhesitatingly ad
vise expectant mothers to uso Dr. Pierce's Favor
ito Prescription," writes Mrs. Stephens. Tho
reason for this advico is that Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription is the best preparative for tho mater
nal function. No matter how healthy and strong
a woman may be, sho cannot uso " Favorite Pro
scription " as a preparativo for maternity without
gain of health and comfort. But it is the women
who aro not strong who best appreciate tho great
benefits received from tho use of " Favorito Pre
scription." For one thing its use makes the baby's
advent practically painless. It has in many cases
reduced days of suffering to a fow brief hours.
It has "changed tho period of anxiety and strugglo
into a time of easo and comfort.
"I take pleasure in informing you of the birth of a boy in
perfect health, on May i8th, 1899," writes Mrs. I,. K. Corti,
of Waltonvillc, Penna., Box 25. "I cannot find words suffi
ciently strong to express to you tny thanks, for baby's com
ing 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 not
believe their eyes. Having suffered so much before I never
believed myself able to bear a living child. I tell every
body this happy event was due by the help of God to your
medicines. I shall never be without your medicines hence
forth, and shall never fail in recommending your ' Favorite
Prescription.' I have used the medicines which you pre
scribed with the best results. Our hearts are full of grati
tude 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."
"I gladly recommend Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription,"
writes Mrs. J. W. G. Stephens, of Mila, Northumberland
Co., Va. "Before my third little boy was born I took six
bottles. He is the finest child and has been from birth, and
I suffered very much less than I ever did before at mater
nity. I unhesitatingly advise expectant mothers to use the
' Favorite Prescription.' "
The benefits of Dr. Pierce's Favorito Prescription
do not begin with the baby's coming, nor do they end
there. It cures or prevents tho nausea from which
so many expectant mothers suffer. It nourishes the
nerves and strengthens them, so curing nervousness
and the sleeplessness almost inseparable from a nerv
ous condition. It promotes a healthy appetite, and
keeps the mother physically strong and mentally
cheerful. After the baby's coming the use of " Fa
vorite Prescription" will contribute to a quick convalescence. It' is tho best of
tonics and nervines, giving real strength which no mere stimulant can give. Tho
mistake of using alcoholic beverages to build up the mother's strength and to
increase the baby's nutrition is constantly being pointed out by physicians. Dr.
Pierce's Favorito Prescription contains no alcohol and is free from all narcotics.
It gives strength to the mother and increases the flow of "tho nutritive secretions
on which the baby is fed, and on the healthfulness of which his growth depends. t
"Having used your 'Favorite Prescription,' I thought I would let you know the result,"
writes Mrs. Katie Auliker, of 754 Pat Street, Alliance, Ohio. "Two years ago I used two
bottles of it and in April the baby was born before the doctor came, I was not very sick.
Baby is now fourteen months old and weighs thirty pounds. Several neighbors are using
Dr. Pierce's medicine through my telling them about it. One lady says, ' Before commenc
ing Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription I had to vomit every day, but after I got the medi
cine from the first spoonful that I took I stopped vomiting.' It has done the same thing
for me. It is a God-send for women."
Remember, that tho claims made for "Favorito Prescription" are all based
upon the words of tho women who have tried the medicine and proved its value.
Thousands of women join with Mrs. Stephens in saying, "I unhesitatingly advise
expectant mothers to use Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription," or like Mrs. Corti,
" recommend it to all young women as one of the best remedies in existence."
