The Secret of Youth
Do you ever wonder how you can remain young, or
why other women older than you, look younger than you do?
The secret can be put in a few words: "Preserve
your health, and vou will preserve your youth."
By "health" we mean not alone physical health, but
nerve health, as, sometimes, magnificently strong-looking
women are nervous wrecks.
But whether you are weak physically or nervously,
you need a tonic, and the best tonic for you ?s Cardui.
It builds strength for the physical and nervous systems.
It helps put flesh on your bones and vitality into your nerves.

"My mother," writes Mrs. Z. L.
ville, Tenn., "is 44 years old and is
change of life.
She was irregular and bloated and suffered terribly.
My father stepped over to the store and got her a bottle
of Cardui, which she took according to directions and now
she is up, able to do her housework and says she feels
like a new^woman." Try Cardui in ycur own case.

THE DEATH PENALTY.
(Continued from first page.)
upon an exception upon that ground,
the court said:
"While such a course on the part
of the trial Judge is. perhaps, unusual,
and possibly not to be commended, we
know of no law which forbids it, and,
therefore, we cannot say that there
was any error of law iu this respect;
and to that we are confined in cases
of this kind."
As no plea of justification was in
terposed by defendant, the alleged er
! ror of charging that there is only one
form of justifiable homicide known to
our law could not have been preju
Under the undlspted evidence a
charge upon the law of self-defense
would have been inapplicable to this
There was no testimony tending to
show that appellant was not legally
responsible for the crime committed.
The motion for a new trial for after
discovered evidence was properly re-;
fused. It was not supported by affid
avit that the evidence could not, by
the exercise of due diligence, have
been secured iu time for the trial, and,
according to the statements of appel.
Iant'8 attorneys to the court as to
the character of the alleged newly dis
covered evidence, it was merely cumtl- !
lative. But, aside from this, the de
cision of the circuit court on motions
for new trials for after-discovered evi
dence, In a law case, can not be re
viewed by this court, except for er
rors of law.
The appellant was not sentenced "to
bo publicly executed," the sentence
was that he be hanged "at the usual
place of execution." which is fixed by
statute within the county jail or the
enclosure thereof, Crini. Code, Sec.
The Judgment of this court is that
the judgment of the circuit court be
affrtnod, and that the case be rc- !
manded to that court for the purpose
of having a new day assigned for the
execution of the sentence heretofore
imposed upon the defendant.
The sentence pronounced by Judge
Prince, which it will he noted, was one
of the exceptions in the case, was as
"The defendant having been brought
to the bnr of this court, and having
been duly arraigned for sentence, anil
having been asked by the clerk of this
court what he had to say why the sen
tence of the court should not now be
pronounced, and he having answered
that he did not have aught to say fur
ther than had already been said by
himself and counsel, the sentence of
the court was then pronounced, as fol

The Motive for the Killing.
The story of the killing and the Im
mediate events leading up to it, as told
by Anderson on the stand, are in part:
"The first one that took sick was the
oldest girl. Another one was the third
oldest girl. I come backwards and
forwards, and come to the railroad,
and the house, as near as 1 can come
at it, is about n hundred and ten or
fifteen or twenty yards from the rnll
doad. And they would come out to the
rallrad whero 1 was. I asked them
how they were getting along. They
said they was bad off sick. My wife
never did ask me in, and old man Josh
didn't becauso he objected to my com
ing. None spoke to me except my own
family. She stayed sick, 1 suppose,
until about (he 20th, 1 reckon, of July.
The other one, she stayed sick as near
us I can come at it, along about four
weekB?never got bettor until way up
in August. She didn't. I come back
wards and forwards to soo her, and
several days I come down there to see
her while she wr?o ulck before they
got that crop laid by, there wasn't no
body at the house but them small little
children that wasn't able to do nothing
at all but get some water. My wife
was in the field boeing cotton, and old
man Josh was in the Held ploughing,
and my other two biggest children was
in the held. I says to her, 'Sick as that
child is, what you doing out there hoe
ing cotton??You ought to be in the
house tending to that child.' 1 says,
'How you manage to give the medicine
the doctor Rive you on regular time?"
She says, 'About the time I think it Is
medicine time I stops an goes to the
house.' I says, 'Then you goes back to
the held?' She says, 'Yes.' 1 says,
'Why don't you stay at the house and
tend to them?' She says, I have to hoe ;
cotton." 1 says, 'It* you was with me j
don't you know 1 wouldn't let you
work none; I would have you at the
house, and take the other two children
and go to work best as 1 could." She
says, 'Yes.' Her mother was at Water
loo then. I says, 'Where is you moth
er?' She Bays, 'At Waterloo, at Dr.
Foanell's. 1 says, 'Why ain't she at
the house attending to them?' She
says, 'I don't know.'
"I come In the corner next to the
pulpit In there at that door ? 1 was In
that settlement on that side (indicat
ing.) 1 come In the church and set
down right at the door, and set there
awhile and looked at the child In the

got away there. And 1 never spoke a 1
word to nobody. 1 got up and went

"Q. Why did you Bhoot him?
"A. Because he didn't give up my
family and kept thorn In that hobble
against me. and I had notified him |f

him if I met him. He told me to do
it now and be done with It."
