Catron, Ky.?in an interesting icuci
from this place, Mrs. Betiie Bullock
writes as follows: "I suffered for four
^ years, with womanly troubles, and during
^ this time, I could only sit up for a little
L "while, and could not walk anywhere at
Ir all. At times, I would have severe pains
in my left side.
The doctor was called in, and his treatment
relieved me for ? while, but I was
soon confined to my wd again. After
A that, nothing seemed to do me any good.
1 had gotten so weak I could not stand,
and I gave up in despair.
At last, my husband got me a bottle of
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I commenced
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 my work."
If you are all run down from womanly
' troubles, don't give up in despair. 1 ry

more than a million women, in its 50

Columbia, February S.?Governor,

istration. the rural credits bitl,. the j
bill providing for the teaching of ag- j
riculture in the common schools, the
bill raising tne child labor age limit
to 14 years the workmen's compensa-.:
tion bill and the bill providing for the j
certification of teachers. The message'
follows:
"Permit me to respectfully call your i
attention to the importance of press-j
ing the consideration of certain meas-;
ares cn your calendars, which I deem
of importance to the great body of
our citizens whom you and I represent.
"My reason for this message is that
we are approacning the closing days
of the session, and I earnestly desire
that these matters should not be overlooked.
The Torrens System
"There have been meetings of citi-!
zeri.* in many localities throughout the
State, calling on the legislature to j
adopi the Torrens system of land reg- j
istration and enact the same into law,!
Tnis is a necessary prerequisite to a.j
system of rural credits. It will reduce
expenses in borrowing money on
land; it gives the State warrant to
title and puts an end to litigation on
land titles. Such an act would be a
boon to the State, and I earnestly
urge its adoption.
Kural Credits..
"Forty-three per cent, of our white
farmers are tenants. The dream of j
the South Carolina patriot i^ to see
these tenants become the owners of
their homes and farms. If we are to
progress we must nelp these tenants j
to help themselves in their ambition I
to become home owners, and we must j
make this possible by adopting meas- j
ures hitherto untried, even if this may '
seem radical. The result is important.;
I deem it of the utmost importance to
take the steps necessary to bring it
about Let us not adjourn this session

into laws. Then our 'vision iur iu-j
ture development, will be turned into
reality, and our rural population will
find full scope for their soaring and
elevating ambitions to find realization
in a people happy in the prospect of
future comfort, contentedness and
happiness.
Agriculture in Schools.
"I earnestly urge upon you the desirability
of enacting into law the
Toole and LeGrande bill, providing for
thp teaching of agriculture in the
common schools. Agriculture is the
basis of our material prosperity, line
common school is the keystone of
our educational system. Provide for
the teaching of agriculture in the com-j
mon school so that agricultural edu-J
cation will reach those who cannot get
in an agricultural college, and an enlightened
prosperity is the result
among this large body of our citizens.
Child Labor.
"The McCullough bill, which pro- j
vides for the raising of the child la- j
bor age limit to 14 years, is of great
importance and should be speedily enacted.
The very wording of this bill
is the greatest argument in iavor of
its passage. The longer the cnila Is
kept in school the greater his effi*
ciency when he begins work.
Workmen's (Compensation.
"The bills introduced by Senator!
-J
Buck and Representatives alius anu j
.Johnstone have been carefully worked
out, and, in my judgment, will meet
conditions existing in South Carolina.
There is nothing in tne act that can
injure the honest employer or employe;
it is a protection to both; it is

sooner it becomes a law the sooner j
will our court dockets be cleared, and !

law.
Certification of Teachers.
"I earnestly urge upon you the importance
of the passage of the Nicholson
bill, providing for the certification
of teachers by a State board.
These measures are, in my judgment.
of Statewide importance, and
r feel that the interest of the people
demands the enactment of these bills

Maxwell Heat Britain's Best But Get*
Only an American
Mark.
Should Eddie Rickenbacher, the famous
Maxwell pilot?or any of th(
other speed demons of premier fame
?celebrate the first race of 1916 bj
rolling 300 miles in two hours or some
such revolutionary figure, the result
could be nothing more than an American
record. Xo such thing as a
world's record can be successfully
claimed, when the feat is accomplished
in the United States, under sane
tion of the 'American Automobile association.
This strange and anomalous condition
arises from the fact that, with
characteristic European aloofness
the automobile judiciary across th<
sea recognizes no performance ir
America as really authentic.
Despite the fact that many recen
American records excel those on th;
books of the Automobile Clubs o!
Great Britain and France, recent compilations
of European records placidly
ignore them and still refer to ven
^ / _ - x ? uL ?
eraoie European ieais as wuriu s records.
Our Dnst Too Thick.
The American Automobile association,
after vainly trying to secure mutual
recognition which would resull
in a real table of world's records, has
temporarily given up the battle and
modestly refers to all marks established
under its jurisdiction as American
records?only this and nothinf
more.
One immediate effect of this condition
is to rob the endurance c'nam.pion
Maxwell touring car of the technical
right to claim a world's title
The JMaxwell?a stock touring cai
?recently completed, -under A. A. A
supervision, a run of 22,022.3 miles
without a mortor stop. iThe best prioi
American record was less than 13 0<H
miles. In Europe the best prior mark
was less than 17,000 miles?to the
credit of the Rolls-Royce. Yet the
Maxwell can quality merely for ar
American record and t'ne stolid Tritons
will doubtless continue to regard
the Rolls-Royce as the world's endurance
champion until its recorl is beaten
in the limits of their tight little
isle.
Were reciprocal rules in operation
the Maxwell would undoubtedly be
granted a world's record certificate
Under its present policy the A. A. A
can, however, grant merely American
certificate of records.
in the meantime, however, there is
no occasion for American sportsmen
to feel symptoms of peeve. Regardloss
cf the technicalities, t'ney have
