typographical mistake In connection
with a marriago' 'notice which came
In his experience. The story runs
thus? Tho bridegroom wns a man
by tho namo of Gunn, whoso father,
Abraham Gunn, wns a leading cit
izen. The editor wanted to glvo
the young coUplo a good send-off
liut turned in tho copy and trusted
to a drunken printer and a drunken
proofreader to spo that It got into
the paper all right. Tho next morn
ing ho read tho announcement
headed "Gunsmith." The girl's
name was Smith. The notice uent
on to say that the blushing bride
was becomingly arrayed In a dress
of "white mule" Instead of "white
mull," and that she carried a largo
red "nose." The copy said "iohc."
Ho had written In regard to the
groom that ho was "tho wclMlked
son of A. Gunn." The compositor
set It up "the wall-eyed son-of-a-gun."
The editor fired both tho compos
itor and the proofreader, but just
the same he was norcr able to
square It with either the- bride or
the groom, or old man Gunn.

"I used to be troubled with a weakness peculiar to
women," writes Mrs. Anna Jones, of Kenny, III. "For
nearly a year, I could not walk, without holding my sides.
I tried several different doctors, but I grew worse. Finally,
our druggist advised Cardui for my complaint I was so
thin, my weight was 115. Now, I weigh 1G3, and I am
never sick. I ride horseback as good as ever. I am in
fine health at 52 years."
f TAKE The

We have thousands of such letters, and more arc
arriving daily. Such earnest testimony from those who
have tried it, surely proves the great value of this vegeta

women up to health and strength. If you are a woman,
give it a trial. It should help you, for it has helped a mil
lion others. It is made from pure, harmless, herb" ingredi
