The Woman's Tonic
SA woman's health de
pends so much upon her
delicate organs, that the
least trouble there affects
her whole system. It is
the little things that ccur4

health. If you suffer from
any of the aches and
pains, due to womanly
weakness, take Cardui at
once, and avoid more seri
ous troubles. We urge
you to try it. Begin today.

Dacchus and the rest to Apollo and the
n.uies, whence the saying of young po

A Seach That Changes Color.
There !s an island in the gulf C
Mexico where the beaches chang
color twice daily with the tides. Whe
uncovered the sands are purple. bu
the inflowing waters quickly tram
form them to gold. The name of th
Ishd is Snails' island. and this sul
plies the key to the remarkable phe
nomenon. The sands are really of
golden color, and when the rising tid
spreads-orer the wide beach the gile
ed bits of earth glisten in the su:
light. but when the tide ebbs the gold
en sands are made purple by myriad
of tiny purple snails crawling in th
wake of the ebbing tide. As the tid
recedes the purple becomcs deeper a
milkons of these little snails com,
from the wet sand in search of food
moving with remarkable rapidity.
