Failed in Health
"My mother died six years ago," writes Miss Ruth
Ward, of Jerseyville, 111., "and left me lo care for six
children. 1 had never been strong; and this, with the shock
of her death, was too much for me.
"I failed in health. I was tired all the time and did
not want to go anywhere, nor care for company. 1 had
the headache all the time and such hearing-down pains.
"A very dear friend advised me to take CarduI, as it
had done her so much good, so 1 commenced to use it
and now 1 am in good Health."
The Woman's Tonic
Women's pains are relieved or prevented and women's
strength is quickly restored, by Cardui, the woman's tonic.
You yourself know best if you need it, or not.
If you do need it, do not delay, but commence to use
It at once, twery day of delay, only lets you slide further
down the hill.
Don't wait, then, but begin to take Cardui today, for its
use, no matter how prolonged, cannot harm you and will
surely do you good.

Seven staple crops common to the
whole country, yielded in 1910 In the
South $874,302,443, says The Manufac
turers' Record in this week's issue.
The same crops?corn, wheat, tobacco,
hay, oats, Irish Potatoes and rye?
yielded in 1900 in the South $427,444,-!
000. In the first decade of the cen-|
tury their value has increased at the !
rate of 104.3 per cent, in the South,
and at the rate of 85.3 per cent. In the'
rest of the country.
These seven crops, with rice and
products of the sugar cane, have an
nggregate value of quite $925,000.000, i
which suggests that cotton, approach- j
Ing with its seed a value this year of !
$1,000,000,000, Is by no means the on
ly great crop of the South. Thus, the
South is, by the very results it is ac
complishing, giving itself the widest
and the most effective sort of adver
tisement of its opportunities for the
thrifty home-builder in agriculture.
Value of Crops.
The value of the crops this year is
especially notable in comparison with
lnst year as it; shown in the following
Crops PJOO 1910
Wheat . 71,4:n,000 87.871.000

In every one of the seven crops, save
tobacco, there was an increase in val
ue in the South in 1910 over 1909,
and in every one there was nn in
crease in quantity. The aggregate in
crease was from $821.726.000 to $874.
302,000( or $52.576.000, equal to 6.4
per cent, while In the rest of the coun
try there was a decrease of 9 per
cent., from $2.984,734,000 to $2.706,.
878.00. or $277,856.000.
Ten Years of Gain.
The favorable showing of the South
is emphasized in a comparison of
1900 and 1910 in the following table:

Between 1900 and 1910 the value of |
these crops in the rest of the country
increased from $1,460.605,000 to $2.
706,878,000, or by $1,246,373,000, equal
to S5.3 per cent., and in the South
from $127,444.000 to $S74.302,00O or
by $44ti.S5S,000, equal to 104.5 per cent.
The great Increase came in corn, from
$234.618.000 to $587,657,000, or by
$353,009,000, equal to 150.4 per cent.,
though Irish potatoes, more than dou
bling in value, have approached tho i
value of the sweet potato crop, in
which the South is a leader, and there
have been quite satisfactory increases
in wheat and hay. The State.

HACK HOME MOVEMENT.
W hut the C. C & 0. Railroad is Doing
to Hring Our Young Men Hack to
W. D. RobertB, Johnson City, Tenn.,
assistant industrial agents Carolina
Clinchfleld & Ohio Railway, writes to
: the Manufacturers Record:
"The Carolina, Cllnchfleld & Ohio
Railway Co's. 'back home' plan of im
migration is an effort to induce some
of the thousands who have gone into
j the North west and Canada to return
j to their former homes in the Southern
I States. This hau also led us to em
ploy all possible means to discourage
a further outgo of people from our
territory While our participation in
th" revenues derived by the railroads
from the travel of people going West
is comparatively small, it is something,
and if we were successful in stopping
the movement entirely (we hope to
do this), the direct loss would be
considerable in the course of a year,
but from the standpoint of freight
tonnage we consider the loss of these
people as producers is many times
greater than their passenger fares to
the West amount to on any Southern
"Looking at it from the standpoint
of our people, we take the position
that the combination of cheap and
productive lands, favorable climate
and nearness to populous cities and
industrial districts now open to them
makes opportunities which cannot be
found anywhere in the West or Can
ada. Therefore, both for those who
should come buck home and for vic
tims of the 'Western fever.' we are
convinced that the South today Is the
very best possible country for them
to live In. Many who have gone West
are writing us to tills effect, and oth
ers who have already come back home
confirm this conviction. The primary
essential to profitable farming is a
good market and a quick delivery of
products. In the West the cities and
industrial districts are very distant
from the cheap farming lands, which
fact consumes the profits by freight
charges. Hut even in farming coun
try comparatively close to the cities
and to the mining and lumbering sec
tions in the West the mass of land is
so extensive that these markets are
quickly oversupplied and the farmer
is compelled to find an outlet for his
surplus at distant points or lose his
labor entirely. And when he sends
bis products to these points the pro
fits are practically absorbed by the
railroads and commission men. Here
all is different. Cities and towns are
clop,} together, and an immense con
suming population is in the mining
districts of the Virginias and Rastern
Kentucky, in the cotton mills of the
Carolinas, in the lumbering regions,
and the great cities of the Atlantic
States? Baltimore) Philadelphia, New
York and Boston, with their teeming
millions, are within a few hours' haul.
In the matter of distance alone the
fruits and live-stock producer on our
cheap mountain lands has as great an
advantage over the Westerner as an
absolutely prohibitive tariff wall could
give him. He can take and hold these
Southern and Kastern markets If ev
ery acre in the Northwest were given
to settlers free of charge and irriga
tion thrown ia.
"Railway managements in the South
have been dividing their efforts In this
matter of Immigration. Through their
industrial departments they have
spent a great deal of money to induce
settlers to take up lands and supply
the nearby markets, but their passen
ger departments have been Just as
alert to aid the Western railroads in
drawing our native stock of people
away from us. Certainly they cannot
refuse to carry people wb > want to
go West, but it would bo better for
them and the country they serve to
use all possible methods in persuad
ing young men to slay in the South
and use the opportunities now at hand.
"Not only the railroads, but boards
of trade, newspaper:*, schools and col
leges, manufacturers and merchants,
mine operators, and. In fact, all the
people and interests in the South are
vitally concerned 111 this movement to
keep and hring 'back home' our own.
Lol it be made clear that they arc
wanted in the development of the
country and for their own good."
