character of the cornice anil, above all.
upon the dignified beauty and classic

unique architectural feature In the

half civilized negroes formed always
an overwhelming majority of the popu?

prudence to erect a strong barrier be?
tween the streets and the private de?
mesnes of the better class residents.
! Out of this necessity grew the Infinite

"Cardui Cured Me"
For nearly ten years, at different times, Mrs. Mary Jinks
of Treadway, Tenn., suffered with womanly troubles. She
says: "At last, I took down and thought I would die. I
could not sleep. 1 couldn't eat I had pains all over. The
doctors gave me up. 1 read that Cardui had helped so
many, and I began to take it, and it cured me. Cardui
saved my Iifel Now, I can do anything."
If you are weak, tired, worn-out, or suffer from any of
the pains peculiar to weak women, such as headache,
backache, dragging-down feelings, pains in arm, side, hip
or limbs, and other symptoms of womanly trouble, you
should try Cardui, the woman's tonic. Prepared from per?
fectly harmless, vegetable ingredients, Cardui is the best
remedy for you to use, as it can do you nothing but good.
It contains no dangerous drugs. It has no bad after-effects.
Ask your druggist He sells and recommends Cardui
