ran, were happily married at the
home of the bride’s parents in
that city yesterday morning at 9
o’clock. Rev. Mr. Sims officiating.

well worthy the lovely bride he
has won, who is one of Cochran’s

Woman is often referred to by
man as “doubling his joys and
having his sorrows. Ihat may
be complimentary but it would
seem to be rather hard on the wo
man. For in plain terms it means
that where things are going w ell
with the man his wife makes
them go better. But when things
are going ill with him, he ex
pects his wife to bear half his
burden. And there’s more truth
than poetry in this presentation
of masculine selfishness. Men
don’t appreciate the fact that the
strain of motherhood alone is a
burden bigger tnan all the loads
! that rest upon male shoulders.
They see'the wife grow thin, pale,
nervous and worn without a
thought that she is overburdened.
Among the pleasant letters receiv
ed by Dr. Pierce are those from
husbands who have waked up be
fore it was too late to the crushing
burdens laid upon the wife, and
in the search for help have found
in Dr. Pieiee’s Favorite Prescrip
tion a restorative which has given
back to the mother the health of
the maiden and the maiden’s hap
piness. “Favorite Prescription”
always helps most always cures.
It has perfectly cured ninety-eight
out of every hundred women who
have used it when afflicted with*
dißeases t peculiar to women.
