Moaesty is the crowning virtue of American women. It is the trait
that all mankind admires. A modest woman is the most pleasing of all
created things. Because of this, becoming virtue thousands of women
pref. r to sutler untold miseries rather than confide their troubles to a
physician, and to even thinfcof submitting to an examination is revolt
ing. They can't get their own consent to an operation. Wine of Cardui
permits sensitive women to retain their modesty. With it thev can cure
" teraale troubles" in the quiet of their oVn rooms. If spedafireatment
is required they can write to the Advisory Department of the Chatta
nooga Medicine Co., and their letters will be promptly answered by
women trained m the cure of
womanly weaknesses and irrcgu
hrities. There should be no hesita
tion. Delayed treatment means a
chronic condition. The longer
postponed the harder to cure.

Frankfort Ey., Jan. 27. The
first actual test of strenth between
the Republican and Democratic
forces iu the Geobei-Tsylor contest
came today and by the admission
of the Republican leaders, proved
a clear majority for Goebel. The
Democrats claim the result of to
day's struggle as decisive, while
the Republicans, although freely
admitting a defeat declare that they
will fight to the fiuish and have
still strong hopes of retaining Gov.
Taylor in his seat.
The fight today came on the
vote of the House in the contest
brought by H. S. Van Meter of
Fayette county for the seat her
tofore held by Henry S. Berry.
Both sides realized that the test of
real strength would be made on
this issne and every effort was
made to get one the largest vote
possible. There were before the
contest 59 Democrats, including
Speaker Trimble, iu the House and
41 Republicans. The latter claim
ed confidently last night that they
would De able to swing at least 50
votes, with excellent chances of
two or three additional. Demo
crats claimed to be certain of 52
votes. The vote in favor of Tan
Meter was 51 to 41. Hayes, Re
publican, and Sledge, Democrat,
were absent. Berry had no vote
because of his personal interest.
Speaker Trimble did not vote.
