Sc nator Tillman Thursday took a
hand in stopping abandonment of tbe
Porl Royal naval station, at the re
quest of Mayor Uanuer, Niels Chris
(onsen, and other citizens of Beaufort,
who came to Washington n> see him
about the matter, and as a result of
the senator's efforts It may be Stated
on the best of authority that the sta
tion will remain in its present status.
The officers, who were ordered away
a short time ago, will be ordered back
and everything will go on just as the
station has recently been conducted.
The fact that Senator Tlllmnn has
been able to secure the return of tbe
officers means that the Marine rtcnool
will continue at Tort Royal and a
great deal for all the country con
tiguous to Beaufort. Senator Tillman
has been a member of the Senate naval
affairs committee for a number of
years and more than once his efforts
have saved the day. It is understood
that formal orders sending the officers
back to Port Royal will be issued im

After The Grippe
"I am much pleased, to be able to write and thank
you for what Cardui has done for me," writes Mrs. Sarah
J. Gilliland, of Silcr City, N. C.
"Last February, I had the Grippe, which left me in
bad shape. Before that, 1 had been bothered with female
trouble, for ten years, and nothing seemed to cure it.
"At last, 1 began to take Cardui. 1 have taken oniy
three bottles, but it lias done me more good than all the
doctors or than any other medicine 1 ever took."
The Woman's Tonic
For the after-effects of any serious illness, like the
Grip, Cardui is the best tonic you can use.
It builds strength, steadies the nerves, improves the
appetite, regulates irregularities and helps bring back the
natural glow of health.
Cardui is your best friend, if you only knew it.
Think of the thousands of ladies whom Cardui has
helped! What could possibly prevent it from helping you?
Remember you cannot get the benefit of the Cardui
ingredients m any other medicine, for tfiey are not for sale
in any drug store except in the Cardui bottle. Try Cardni.
