MISS MARTHA HUDER,

qualities. MHS. WIMIKLMIXA SNOW,
Treas. .-onomic League, Portland, Me.
Every woman Ftifferincr with female trouble

My advice to suffi rinsr women is to take Wine of Cardui and they
will never be disappointed in the results. MISS LOUISE FINE,
125 Ilcnnessy St., New Orleans, La.
These women say Wine of Cardui will cure menstrual
disorders, bearing down pains, ovarian pains, leucorrhoea,
nervousness and hysteria that this pure wine will rob child
birth of its worst agonies, and that the change of life need
have no terrors for a woman who takes this great female tonic.
Will you take their advice?
Secure a Bottle of Wine of Cardui today.
j A Savenous Appetite
It is a joy to see a person eat after a few days' use of
Taber's Pepsin Compound. It cleans out the undigested
matter from the stomach and bowels, and then sets the secre
tive glands so vigorously to work that there is natural fluid
in abundance to ttgisf oil yon eat, and you need not be afraid
to eat heartily and enjoy your meals. With a good appetite
and perfect digestion, life takes on a bright, cheery aspect,
and with energy and enthusiasm come new ambitions and
desires. Taber's Ptj-.s-n Compound has not a rival.

The dates of the state convention
will be Friday aad Saturday, May 13
and 20. There are expected to be
present about lnt accredited delegates
from the various local councils of the
organization, and besides the regular
delegates a large number of visitors
and the wives of the delegates are
expected, so that over 5uo people in
all will doubtless be on hand for all
or part of the two days.
The business sessions of the con
vention are to be held in the Odd
Fellows' hall, which has been rented
for the occasion. The first business
session is expected to be called to or

Sftclnl Side of Meeting;.
Not the least interesting feature of
the gathering of travelers will be the

for the occasion, for traveling men
and their wives are noted for their
social prrKdivities. For this part of
the meeting the grand council has am
ply provided, a fund of $1,200 having
been set aside from the state treasury
for the purpose of entertainment. If
that is not sufficient, the members of
the local council will see to the rest of
it. The Business Men's association
has generously consent ed to cooper
ate with the local council to see that
the visitors have a gofl time, but the
council has not asked the association
for a cent of mony on this score. The
Business Men's association has agreed,
however to furnish a band to head the
parade of the travelers, which will bo
tlx chief spectacular feature of tho
two days' session. The business men
have also agreed to furnish the use
of the Coliseum for the grand ball on
Friday night, which will be the social
climax of the affair. The details of
the arrangements for the ball have not
yet been made, but as now planned
there will be dancing and a supper of
more or less elaborate nature, at which
the Hloomington members will act as
hosts to the visitors.
