That's What Mount Pleasant
Lady Says Cardui Is and
Tells What It Did for Her.
A Mt. Pleasant, Tenn-"As a girl I
'was always well and hearty," says
Mrs. M. E. Rail, of this place. "I
have always been accounted healthy. I
-never felt any trouble like . . . weak
ness until I camte to the change of life.
I was about forty-five when that be
gan. I think I would have died had I
not found out what a good friend to
women Cardul Is.
"I suffered a great deal. I had a
number of fainting spells, and . . .
would be obliged to lie In bed a week
or two at a time. I never liked to lie
in bed because it interfered so with my
work. The swimming in my head was
nearly continuous. I could not stoop
down it would make ine so dizzy. I
think I used Cardul off and on for two
or three years, using In that time
.about 8 or 10 bottles. I began to feel
the improvement in health before I
had taken one bottle, but kept on tak
ing it until I got in perfect health.
"Had it not been for Cardui I know
I would have been dead. . . . Now I am
62 years old, and weigh about 175, and
am in the most perfect health."
Give Cardul a trial for your
troubles. It should do for you what it
has done for thousands of others.

It was a hot hummer day-with that
peculiar kind of heat common to the
Atlantic slope. Five big, stout gentle
men were going to the top of a New

"Yes, boy, you ought to have a keg of

another. The boy looked at the five

ney. You have learned a great deal
in this last year. One of the things
you know .is that almost every man
has small affairs, many of them some
times, before he finds the woman he 1
wants to marry. When he finds her,
the others are all off-there's nothing
to them. It's the real thing then, in
stead of the sham."
"Palmer was very much in love with
Christine, and yet-"
"Palmer is a cad."
"I don't want you to think I'm mak

went on, and I found out afterward
that you-that there was anyone else,
It would kill me."
"Then you care, after all I"
There was something boyish in his
triumph, in the very gesture with
which he held out his arms, like a child
who has escaped a whipping. He
stood up and, catching her hands, drew
her to her feet. "You love me, dear."
"I'm afraid I do, Max."
"Then I'm yours, and only yours, if 1
you want me," he said, and took her in
He was riotously happy, must hold
her off for the joy of drawing her to
him again, must pull off her gloves
and kiss her soft bare palms.
"I love you, love you !" he cried, and

warm hollow of her neck.
Sidney glowed under his caress-was
rather startled at his passion, a little

"I love you," said Sidney, and flushed
But even in his arms, with the warm
sunlight on his radiant face, with his
lips to her ear, whispering the divine
absurdities of passion, in the back of
her obstinate little head was the
thought that while she had given him
her first embrace, he had held other
wvomen in his arms. It made her pais

She broke the news of her engage
ment to K. herself, the evening of the
same day. The little house was quiet
wvhen she got out of the car at the
door. Harriet was asleep on the couch
at the foot of her bed, and Christine's
rooms wvere empty. She wvent upstairs
to the room that had been her moth
er's, and took off her hat. She wanted1
to be alone, to realize what had hap
pened to her. A year ago her half
promise to Joe had gratified her sense
of romance. She was loved, and shte
hadt~ thrilledl to it.
But this was different. Marriage,
that had been but a vision then, loomed
large, almost menacing. She had
learned the law of compensation: that
for every joy one pays in suffering.
Women who married wvent down into
the valley of death for their children.
One must love and b~e loved very ten
dlerly to pay for that. The scale must
Iharriet was stirring, across the hall.
Sidney could hear her moving about
wvith flat, inelastic steps.
That was the alternative. One mar
ried, happily or not as the case'might
be, andl took the risk. Or one stayed
single, like Harriet, growing a little
hard, exchanging slimness for lean
ness and aumterity of figure, flat-chest
ed(, thin-volced. All at once it seemed
very terrible to her. She felt as if she
had been cati.ght in an inexorahle hand
that had closed about her.

"I do care. I dIon't know why I cried.

to be, a sort of partnership. Don't you

endure the good-bumored contempt of
the older men, the patronizing listric,
f.ions of nurses as to rules.
Carlotta alone treated him with def
erence. His uneasy rounds in Carlotta's
precinct took on the state and form of
stalT visitations. Sie ihittered, cajoled,
looked up to him.
After a time it dawned on Wilson
that this junior cub was getting more
attention tIhn himself; that, vhierever
lie happened to be, somewh'ere in the
offing would be Carlotta and the Lamb,
the latter eyeing her with-worship. Her
indilference laid only piqued him. The
enthroning of a successor galled him.
Bet ween them, the Lamb suffered

Then, one day, Wilson was goaded
"For the love of heaven, Carlotta,"
lie said impatiently, "stop making love

"It's rather a silly game, you know.
Do you think I don't understand?"'
"Perhaps you do. I-I don't really
care a lot about him, Max. But I've
been downhearted. He cheers me up."
Her attraction for him was almost
gone-not quite. He felt rather sorry
"I'm sorry. Then you are not angry
"Angry? No." She lifted her eyes
to his, and for once she was not acting.
"I knew it would end, of course. I
have lost a-a lover. I expected that.
But I wanted to keep a friend."
It was the right note. Why, after all,
should lie not be her friend? He had
treated her cruelly, hideously. If she
still desired his friendship, there was
no disloyalty to Sidney In giving it. And
Carlotta was very careful. Not once
again did she allow him to see what lay
