Treasurer's report for the year ending
Dec. 31, 1910, received too late to be
audited. Copies of tho above reports
submitted herewith The
town treasurer's attention is called to
the fact that quarterly reports of the
town's finances should be submitted,
subject to audit and published. As no
such reports have been published
during his term of office it is recom
mended that the yearly statement for
the year 1910, when audited, be pub
lished, and thereafter quarterly re
ports be published.
The general fund shows a credit
balance Jan. 1, 1911, of S1222.f3.
The water fund shows a credit hal
auco Jan. 1, 1911, 53589.93.

"I would like to guide
suffering women o a sure
cure for female troubles,"
writes Mrs. R. E Mercer,
of . Frozen Camp, W. Va.
"I have found no med
icine equal to Cardui. I
had suffered for about
four years. Would have-
headache for a week at a
time, until I would be
nearly crazy. I look Car
dui and now I never have
the headache any more."
Th Woman's Tonfc
The pains from which
many women suffer every
month are unnecessary.
It's not safe to trust to
strong drugs, right at the
time of the pains.
Better to take Cardui
for a while, before and
after, to strengthen the
system and cure the cause.
This is the sensible,
the scientific, the right way.
