Trying out Hydrocycle at Milan.
A tandem hydrocycle was recently given a tryout at Milan with great
si ccess by its builders Moretti brothers. The novelty of the hydrocycle,

ful in the way water is used.

Her Health and Strength EacK
Again by The Use of Cardui.
Tampa, Fla. In a letter from this
City, Mrs. E. C. Corum writes: "I was
all weakened and worn out with wo
manly troubles. My husband brought
me some Cardui as a tonic, and, from
the first day. it seemed to help.
I had almost lost my reason, but,
thanks to Cardui, I did not Soon, I
felt and looked like a new woman. I
think the remedy Is wonderful. I
recommend it to my friends, lor I have
received great benefit from it."
Cardui acts specifically on the weak
ened womanly organs, strengthening
the muscles and nerves, and building
them up to health.
It helps to refresh the worn-out ner
vous system and relieves the effects of
overwork, both mental and physical.
Fifty years' successful use fully
prove the merit of this purely vege
table, tonic remedy for women.
In every community, there live some
who have been benefited by Cardui.
The beneficial effects of this time
tested woman's remedy, soon show
themselves In many different ways.
