After Four Tears of Discouraging
C ditions, Mrs. Bullock Gave
Up in Despair. Husband
Came to Rescue.
Catron, Ky. In an interesting letter
from this place, Mrs. Bettie Bullock
writes as follows : "1 suffered for four
years, with womanly troubles, and during
this time, I could only sit up for a little
while, and could not walk anywhere at
all. At times, I would have severe pains
in my left side.
The doctor was called in, and his treat
ment relieved me for a while, but 1 was
soon confined to my bed again. After
that, nothing seemed to do me any good.

Royal Baking Powder is absolutely pure
and wholesome. It is made from highly re
fined, pure, cream of tartar, an ingredient of
grapes. Not an atom of unwholcsomeness
goes into it; not an unwholesome influence
comes from it. It perfectly leavens the food,
makes it finer in appearance, more delicious
to the taste, more healthful.
Its superiority in all the qualities that make
the perfect baking powder is never questioned.

I had gotten so weak I could not stand,
and I gave up in despair.
At last, my husband got me a bottle oi
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I com
menced taking it. From the very first
dose, I could tell it was helping me. I
can now walk two miles without its
tiring me, and am doing all my work."
If you are all run down from womanly
troubles, don't give up in despair. Try
Cardui, the woman's tonic. It has helped
more than a million women, in its 50
years of continuous success, and should
surely help you, too. Your druggist ha3
sold Cardui for years. He knows what
it will do. Ask him. He will recom

Editor Public Ledger:
Permit n word to my people in this
'tho contest now on is so fraught with
so many Ital Interests to all sane peo
pie In general and my people In par
ticulnr that 1 believe no man or woman
can bo disinterested or careless about
it. Several methods may bo used to
keep my people, from exercising the
franchise In a way that will show we
nro worthy our citizenship, viz.: (1)
Have, thorn stay away from the polls;
(If) (Jo out of town, or (It) soil their
ote. Whatever whlto people, who own
tho laud and therefore pay tho taxes,
have tho influence, education and
money may do or not, my people can
not afford to do either of theio things
and then hope to retain solf respect
with decent and intelligent people net
or dry. Wo, as a people can not af
ford to vote wrong. We voto wrong,
when wo refuse to voto for then the
vote counts on tho other side; when we
go out of town to avoid voting we
show moral cowardice mid pusillanimity
and when we sell tho vote no lay our
selves liable to bo sent to the peniten
tiary. Kvcry voto bought is tho price
of our wives, babies and home and re
moves all protection or defense from
them. Tho ballot was given us for our
protection nnd when wo prostitute that
vote by refusing to uso it or selling it
we have no right to ask for protection
either of our homes and loved one
or ourselves, as wo are outlawed by our
selves. I believe it the duty of ever
respectable member of my raeo to join
uith those cultured and tax payinj'
white men, women and children who
will parade Saturday to let tho city
know where we stand. The statcmeir
that to march In the profession will re
licet upon us. Now do not somo of us
nnd it will Iu so Saturday follow
'ho circus and band all around town
and in ou hurry forget to ehnngo our
clothes? Certainly wo do. Then where
Iocs the humiliation eonio iu when Wi
march beside somo of the best am
1 ost cultured whlU peoplo of this city?
This is 'our opportunity to show that
all colored people are not alike. I an
inxinus for every member ot our race
worthy of citizenship to be iu that pa
rado looking ns neat and clean and
happy as can be. It will be worth mucl
to us iu tho future. If on Monday ou1
good women will help us get more of
our men to join us in voting dry it wil'
demonstrate tho fact that we are not
"undesirable Citizens'' but are inter
etod iu the uplife of humanity. The
statement that the town going dry will
increase taxes should not cause us to
worry as tho white peoplo pay the bull
of tho taxes any way. Do not be misled
into a compromising position, but go
to tho poles like the men wo are and
oto dry no matter if you are drunk
S days in the week. I have some good
wet friends but I want my peoplo Mon
day to help make them dry. When the
thing is done they will thank us as the
