Dont Deny Yourself The Pleasure of Having
Goob Piano Music in Your Own Home
The piano is the greatest of all pleasure instruments for the home
and it ii no longer necessary to be an accomplished musician in order
to play it.
Human Ingenuity has made it possible for anyone to play a piano
by means of perforated music rolls thus eliminating years ol tedious
practice--and placing the responsibility of correct playing on the. piano
rather than on the pianist.
Has every device necessary to make the piano "human," but vou will
realize this only when you hear it played. That is why we want you to
let us demonstrate The Autopiano. It's just like going to hear some
great pianist play only there is no admission charge.

A LITTLE OPTIMISTIC BUT
NOT WHOLLY WITH
Mt. Vernon a city of lonoo
population, beautifully sinnti'd in
the central part of Rockcastle,
county, Ky., one of the wealthiest
counties in the tnte, inade so by
its once unknown resources, such
as coal, iron and stone, the
timber all having been cut and
the people tinally giving their
attention to farming and manu
facturing. There are three
large stone manufacturing plants
a'l doing a remarkable busiuess.
The City of Mt. Vernon now has
the finest of paved streets and
the corners are carefully guarded
bv tratic police, to see that no
one is injured in the struggle of
the stieet cars and auto-mobiles
as they pass hauling the masses
to and from their various places
of business '
"The Rockcastle", the best
hotel in this part of the State,
with its handsome lobbies and
its commodions parlors, is con
stantly having boquets thrown
upon it by Senator Smith and
old Gov. Miller of this place,
when they come home from the
capital to see their dear ones
who reside here. Mt. Vernon
has 75 miles of the finest pike
leading into it that can possibly
be made, which the people of the
city of Mt. Veruon give all the
credit for which she is to-day.
If you could only see the people
as they come hi from out in the
ccunty now and see them as
they once came in would at
once think, that there never
could have been such vast im
provements. If you would like
to know how this was all brought
about, I can tell you in a few
short words. There met in the
little drug store of C. C. Davis
some 4 or 5 men who had the
city at heart and at once declared
themselves in favor of piking
our county ana oanaea tnem-
rpIvps together and made as
their slogan "pike Rockcastle".
Every one put his shoulder to
wheel so to speak and in a few
week thmgs were on foot and
before the people hardly knew
it work was begun in every
part of the county and you can
see for yourself what the se
quel of that little meeting in
the drug store did.

"Cardui Cured Me"
For nearly ten years, at different times, Mrs. Alary Jfhks
of Treadway, Tenn., suffered with womanly troubles. She
says: "At last, I took down and thought I would die. I
could not sleep. I couldn't eat I had pains all over. The
doctors gave me up. I read that Cardui had helped so
many, and I began to fake it, and it cured me. Cardui
saved my lifel Now, I can do anything."
If you are weak, tired, worn-out, or suffer from any of
the pains peculiar to weak women, such as headache,
backache, dragging-down feelings, pains in arm, side, hip
or limbs,, and other symptoms of womanly trouble, you
should try Cardui, the woman's tonic. Prepared from per
fectly harmless, vegetable ingredients, Cardui is the best
remedy for you to use, as it can do you nothing but good.
It contains no dangerous drugs. It has no bad after-effects.
Ask your druggist He sells and recommends Cardui.
