Call to the home of Mr. William Sol

flames in the roof of the building. Af
ter a fast run by the big horses and;
a quick connection by the firemen,
the "boys" scaled the building and j
soon had the fire at their mercy and
in a few minutes it was out. Unfor
tunately, Mr. Tom Divver, one of the
firemen, slipped on the wet roof and]
fell to the ground and was painfully
though not BOrlOMBly injured.
While the Are at Mr. olomon's house
was being put out the telephone gave
the alarm of a second blaze and this
one turned out to be at the home of
Mr, W. Ii. McCuen. The remainder of
the hose thai was on the wagon was
sent at once to the home of Mr. Mc
Cuen and in a few minutes fire No.
2 was out. Very fortunately the hose
that was left in the wagon from the
firs' fire Jusl barely reached the build
ing and if the fire had been on the
opposite side of the house the Are
could hardl) have been gotten under1
control as early as It did. If two;
streams had been necessary at Mr.
Solomon's house enough hose would
not have been left to reach even the i
near side of Mr. McCuen's house.
The volunteer fire department, as
is their custom, showed up in good
form and did splendid work. As us

Happy the girl, or woman, who has never suffered from
any of the diseases of womanhood! Or, if she has been a
sufferer, happy is she if she has learned of the wonderful
benefits of Cardui, the woman's tonic!
Cardui is a gentle, tonic remedy, for women's ailments.
It is a natural medicine?safe, harmless, purely vegetable.
It has been in successful use for more than 50 years. It

Airs. Mary Ntely, of Denver, Tenn., says, "\ thrnk
there Is no tonic on earth, as good as Cardui. I used It
with the very btst results. I had backache and nearly
everything a woman could suffer with, until I took Cardui.
Now, I feel better than I have for two years. I shall
always recommend Cardui to other suffering women. I
can't praise it too highly. As a medicine for weak, tired,
worn-out women, Cardui is safe and reliable. Try it, today.
