" Deati Mn3. riXKHAJ : For years I
enjoyed the best of health and thought
that I would always do so. I attended
parties and receptions thinly clad, and
would be suddenly chilled, bat I did
not think of the results. I caug-ht a
bad cold eighteen months ago while
menstruating, and this caused inflam
mation of the womb and congested
ovaries. I suffered excruciating pains
and kept getting worse. My attention
was called to your Vegetable Com
pound and the wonderful cures it had
performed, and I made tip my mind to
try it "for two months and see what it
would do for me. Within one month I
felt much better, and at the close of tho
second I was entirely well.
' I hare advised a number of my
lady friends to use it, and all express
themselves as well satisfied with the
results as I was." Miss Rose Nora

By virtue of a decree handed down
in the Chancery Court at Xashville
last week, the Union Stockyards

The decree recites that in the report
of the clerk and master it is shown
that no contract between the Union
Stockyards Company and the Louis-
villle & Xashvilleand the Xashville,
Chattanooga & St. Louis railroads
exists, and that there is at present
no arrangement in regard to han-
dung live stock in Xashville. This
last sale will bring on lively bidding
between the Guyton-Stahlman inter
ests on one side and the Cudahy-
Hettennan combination on the oth
er. It is expected the property will
go for many thousands of dollars
above the previous sale.
