A WOMAN FOR
A Betrayed <Jir! Offers to V ;! Herself to
the Southern Medical Collag<\
Withapale, haggard face; wit ft wild,
despairing look and tears i.lerally
streaming down her hollow, 'tnken
cheeks, Maud Fambro, a onco ii:;iocent
country girl, entered the Southern Med-
ical college yesterday afternoon. Ap-
proaching Uncle Robert Pierce, the kind-
ly disposed old janitor, she asked for tho
ladies' reception room.
After having seated herself, the yonru;
woman in a dazed sort of way sur-
veyed the room and its contents with
evident fear and dread. After a mo-
ment's hesitation she inquired of the jani-
tor if the college wanted to buy a sub-
ject. If so, she had one to offer for sale,
which, although alive now, would in the
course of a month or two be at the dis-
posal of tho college if terms were agreed
"Where is the subject, miss?" he asked,
"Why, here it is—right here. Do you
see me? I am the one. Do you think
they will buy my body?" she went on,
looking the janitor squarely in the face.
"I am going to die, and I know it, and
what I want to do is to arrange for the
future. My history, I will say at the be-
ginning, is familiar to all where I live,
and rather than go back and face my
degradation and shame prefer to die!
Won't they buy my body?" she almost
"Upon what terms would you make
the disposition?" inquired a fiendish look-
ing medical student.
"I will sell it for most any price.
What I want to do is to make future
provision for my baby. I haven't but
one copper in the world and am here
without a place to shelter my head. I
thought by coming to Atlanta I'd make
a trade by the college agreeing to take
my body after I am gone. I do not know
where to go or what to do."
It is the same old story of man's per-
fidy and woman's worse than weakness.
Six months ago she was a highly respect-
ed country girl, living on the lino of
the Atlanta and West Point railroad
near a pretty little town of 1,800 or 2,000
inhabitants—now an outcast and a wan-
derer upon the face of the earth. A once
i>oor. innocent countrv lass, she seeks to

This fair and
offer is held
out to all
the diseases and de-
liar to their sex.
To weakly womanhood no prize could be
more secure, nor the benefit more lasting,
than that to be derived from the purchase
of a bottle of this famous " Prescription."
Its success in curing all the functional de-
rangements, painful disorders, and chronic
weaknesses of women, Warrants its makers
in guaranteeing it, what this medicine has
done for thousands of delicate women, it will
do for you. At the two critical periods in
woman's life, the change from girlhood to
womanhood, and, later, the " change of life,"
it's an invaluable tonic and a soothing nerv-
ine, which can produce only good results. It
cures cases of nervous prostration, insomnia,
or inability to sleep, ana many nervous disor-
ders due to derangement of the functions.

of her corpse that she might make proper
provision for her future offspring. It is
indeed a sad case.
The girl, not meeting with what she
thought proper consideration, left the
college, saying she was going to carry
out her intention or commit suicide. She
was entreated to go home and was given
enough money to pay her railroad fare
to the little town from which she came
yesterday. It is not known where she
went after leaving the college.—Atlanta

Oh, no I Twenty-three million five
hundred and twenty-nine thousand four
hundred people did not pass through the
gates of the Chicago fair, nor did 21,477,
212 individuals pay for admission. It is
fair to assume that at least 250,000 of
Chicago's residents went in a dozen times
each and some of them a hundred times.
Scores of thousands of citizens blurred
their eyes, blistered their feet and wea-
ried their physiques all the way from 5 to
25 times each. There is no practical
method of determining just how many
individuals "did" the fair. It is sufficient
for us to know, and very pleasant also,
that after every debt is paid there will
remain at least $1,000,000 to be divided
among the enterprising, plucky and gen-
erous stockholders.—Joe Howard

was emaciated to a degree that she was un-
able to get out of bed unaided, being given
up by physicians; she had taken tho ruinous
so-called blood medicines without tbe least
effect, until being put under the P. P. P.,
she immediately began to improye and is
now in as good health as eyer in her life.
You can refer to me at any time as to the
effects o P. P. P., in the foregoing case.
Yours truly, SAMUEL OHARRY.
