THEIR INVITED GUESTS
AT SUBURBAN HOME
When Perkins, without consulting

tho error of falling to pry Into
Hlnchott's family nffalrs aa a prelim
inary move. Ho realized later that
ho should havo put Hlnchett through
tho third degree of tho census bu
reau before extending tho Invitation.
ThiiH ho would havo escaped tho con
fusion that overwhelmed him on tho
Saturday when Hlnchett descended
upon tho Perkins establishment with
ono wife, two children and ono brln
"I had to bring tho dog," oxplalned
Hlnchett brightly, when Perkins mot
him at tho foot of tho steps, "because
thero Ih no ono In our apartment

Good old Ilnino! Ho has to bo fed
Just so or ho Is unhappy. Mrs. Hln

Perkins know that hla wlfo was
watching tho reception from behind
tho living room curtains and that hla

pended upon hla carrying tho matter
off with tho air of Its being qulto what
he had expected.
"Como right In." exclaimed Perkins,
heartily, as tho children began pulling
tho geraniums out of hla wife's flower
boxes beside tho steps. "Glad you
brought tho dog. Ho'U be company
for our dog. Let me take your suit

chett exclaimed, making a dlvo for It.
"I'm Just worn out with tho long trip
from our place and tho railroad drive
and then the walk up hero In tho sun.
You won't mind if I lie down a min
ute, will you?"
"Lillian Isn't very strong," Hln
"Certainly not!" Perkins told her.
"Go right ahead. Mrs. Hlnchett, and
get rested. That's what wo'ro here
She tumbled Into tho hammock and
Hlnchett went down into tho front
yard to encourage Bruno In digging
up tho pansy bed that Mrs. Perkins
had been working over all season. As
Perkins walked into the hall with the
satchels his wife seized him.
"Why didn't you tell me these peo
ple Iiad children?" she hissed Into his
ear. "I could have gone away or got
scarlet fever or something. You know
that I've nobody to help me with the
housework. And I was planning to
make Jelly today." ...
"Hlnchett held out on me." mur
mured Perkins. "Ho never mentlned
the kids. For the love of Pete, go and
talk to 'em."
"And that woman In tho hammock
Is the one you said would help mo
mako Jelly If I let them como today,"
his wife said witherlngly.
"Maybe she will." countered Per
kins. "You haven't asked her yet."
Then Mrs. Perkins coaxed up a wel
coming smile for the guests and went
out to meet them, murmuring words
of sympathy for Mrs. Hlnchett, whose
fatigue threatened to become per
manent. About that time the Perkins
fox terrier arrived from an excursion
Into foreign fields. When the two
men had pried the bulldog loose from
the fox terrier's neck Perkins took his
dog into the basement and chained
him to the furnace.
While Mrs. Hlnchett, from the
depths of the hammock, was explain
ing to Mrs. Perkins how badly she felt
most of the time and how quickly she
succumbed before exercise of any
kind, Perkins took Hlnchett down to
show him the village hall, and the
other sights of which the residents of
the suburb are Justly proud. He want

day. When they returned an hour or

BLOWING A CARD FROM PIPE
Nothing Would Seem to Be More Sim
plePeculiar Principle of Aero
At Prst thought, nothing would soem

on tho bowl of It and one blows
through the pipe stem; but when one

He was spending a few months at

the surface of the card which Is ex
pected to be lifted Is many times
greater. As soon as the card rises a
little, the downward pressure holds
it to such an extent that the air flows
out sidewise In every direction along
its , surface. When It gets to the
Blow Ever So Long and Hard, the
edge of the card, it draws some of
the air from the upper side with It.
This causes a current of air from
above to descend upon the card and
to hold it down.

My Doctor Said
"Try Cardui," writes Mrs. Z. V. Spell, of Hayne, N. C.
" I was in a very low state of health, and was not able to
be up and tend to my duties. I did try Cardui, and soon
began to feci better. I got able to be up and help do my
housework. I continued to take the medicine, and now I
am able to do my housework and to care for my children,
and I feel as though I could never praise Cardui enough
for the benefits 1 have received."
Cardui is successful, because It is made especially for
women, and acts specifically on' the womanly constitution.
Cardui does one thing, and does it well. That explains
the great success which it has had, during the past 50 years
in helping thousands of weak and ailing women back to
health and happiness.
If you are a woman, feel tired, dull, and are norvnnc
cross and Irritable, it's because you need a tonic. Why not
try Cardui ? Cardui builds, strengthens, restores, and acts
in every way as a special, tonic remedy for women. Test
it for yourself. Your druggist sells Cardui. Ask him.
