seems to be unnermost in the
minds of every community'
where they have not mecadamiz-'

good sytem of highways. "Ne

one could at this season of the
year be working so zealousli
for road improvement solely for
the purpose that the improve

that when a business man or
merchant living in the cities and

wants them for pleasure only. '

would be required to give as a

sick most of the time and
suffered with backache and
headache. My Mother, who
had been greatly helped by
the use of Cardui,. got me
two bottles, and I have
been well ever since."
The Woman' Tonic
Cardui is a gentle tonic
for young and old women.
It relieves and prevents
pain. It builds strength. It
feeds the nerves. It helps
the whole system.
Made from harmless
roots and herbs, it has no
bad after-effects, does not
interfere with the use of
any other medicine and can
do you nothing but good.

you. Yow dealer sells it

is that with tho money that

upon Knox County we wouli'

mauuer that they would tnon
than puy for themselves by tin
saving in hauling over them, and
yet we would have paid out in
