Stop and Consider
Is there anything about your home of more im
portance than your Refrigerator ?
Into it goes, for preservation, a large portion of the food you eat. Sup
pose your Refrigerator does not properly preserve, that it isn't perfectly dry?
That it hasn't a cold interior? Such a condition breeds disease?and such is
the case in a cheap, poorly made Refrigerator.
The Odorless is Not That Sort==
it preserves perfectly. Yet our prices are less than you would pay for a num
ber of inferior makes.

r A Good Example I
"I am a good example," writes Mrs. R. L. Bell, of
i mcAlester, Okla., "of what Cardui will do for suffering
"I suffered with my head and back, for over six years, H
and although I tried everything, I never could get any
Bj thing to do me any good, until 1 began to take Cardui.
"Cardui has surely helped me and built me up and I
am so thankful that 1 have found something that will do
H me good. 1 feel so much stronger and better than I have
in a long time."
It is well to make up your mind before you are sick
what medicine you will take when you are sick.
Pi* CARDUI I
I The Woman's Tonic I
You will be glad to take it when you are tired, mis
H erable and when life seems a weary grind. It will put
I new thoughts into your head, fresh courage into your mind.
If not sick now, at least burn Cardui on to the pages
H of your memory, so that when you are sick you will ask
I for it without thinking.
I If sick or weak, get a bottle today. At all druggists.
