He warned them against the present
vicious conception of the sphere of edn
cated women which prompted them to
seek newspaper publicity and other
forms of notoriety. "When higher
ideals do return," he declared, "the

will surely array the best of their sex
against a social evil which has sudden
ly become too common to provoke sur
prise—the transformation of marriage
from the sacrament of God into a
thoughtless and headlong business or
social arrangement to lie dissolved al
most at pleasure ." Educated women,
lie said must assist in resisting this
"downward rush of the multitude. '

One of tho most common statement*
made in tho letters grateful women
write to Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y.,
is this: "I owe my life to Dr. Tierce."
These women have found themselves in
great danger. They have appealed
without avail to local physicintis. They
have counseled in vain with women
advisers. The best that had been done
for them was just to keep them afloat in
the sea of disease with strength visibly
failing, in the hope that the »i«n who
hail strength and skill to save them
might be found.
Hundreds of thousands of woman
have appealed to Dr. Pierce, for relief
from womanly ills and not one has ap

l'avorite Prescription supplemented by
the medical advice of I>r. I'ierce has

"I wish to tell you the benefit I re

writes Mrs. Alice boncrant, of 261 W.

years ago I was taken with a severe pain
in the left yvarv and side. Tried several
different remedies, but nothing helped

One day an old neighbor lady came in

had saved her life. Wlieu the doctors

No sick woman should

which have baffled the
skill of local physicians
and proved intractable to
all other treatment.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
makes weak women strong and aick
