"Cardui Cured Me"
. For nearly ten years, at different times, Mrs. Mary Jinks
of Trea'lway, Term., suffered with womanly troubles. She
says: "At last, I took down and thought I would die, I
could not sleep. I couldn't eat I had pains all over. The
doctors gave me up. I read that Cardui had helped so
many, and I began to take it, and it cur.d me. Cardui
saved my life! Now, I can do anything."
If you are weak, tired, worn-out, or suffer from any of
the pains peculiar to weak women, such as headache,
backache, dragging-down feelings, pains in arm, side, hip
or limbs, and other symptoms of womanly trouble, you
should try Cardui, the woman's tonic. Prepared from per
fectly harmless, vegetable ingredients, Cardui is the best
remedy for you to use, as it can do you nothing but good.
It contains no dangerous drugs. It has no bad after-effects.
Ask your druggist. He sells and recommends Cardui.

Some More Correspondence "Wound
Around State'? Loan?Further they
(Jo, Worse They OeL
Columbia, Feb. 14.?J. P. Matthews,
financial agent of the state, on Feb
ruary 9 addressed a letter to the gov
ernor of South Carolina in which ho
charged that a previous letter, sent
to the generaly assembly in a special
message on the state loan Incident
had been twisted and its meaning
perverted. The letter of Mr. Mat
thews seems to clear up the contro
versy between the governor and Rob
ert H. Jennings, the state treasurer.
Mr. Matthews staff s in his letter
that he called at the offlce of the
governor and dictated a letter on
the state loan. The letter was later
presented to Mr. Matthews with the
statement that it was necessary to
cut out part because of repetition.
He consented, according to his letter,
but several phrases were added. He
states that he did not read the let
to- upon the statement of the steno
grapher that only the repetions
had been cut..
For instance, Mr. Matthews claims
that the following line was Inserted
in his letter: "The transaction was
not concluded; neither were the notes
signed until after we reached New
York." There are many other such
alleged changes in the letter which
would make it read as substantiating
the position of the governor.
The governor, in n. special message
to the general assembly, said: "What
ever difference may have taken place
betwdon Mr. Matthews, as agent of
the state, and the state treasurer, as
to the amounts drawing interest, is
no concern of mine; and if the
amounts did not draw interest as was
agreed with me they should do. Mr.
Matthews' letter clearly shows the
"I could only make the agreement
that it should draw Interest; it was
the duty of the state treasurer to
see that the agreement was complied

Albemarle, Feb. 11.?Last August,
Prof. B. L. Parkinson of Tennessee
came to Albemarle and took charge
of the graded schools as superintend
ent, lie had not been In charge but
few weeks when it was seen that
his entire energy had been thrown Into
the work, for, unliko the average grad
ed school superintendent, he com
menced to talk and work for better
sanitary coudR'ons, beautifying the
grounds and arranging the buildings
so us to make, the children comforta
I blc, cheerful and enthusiastic. Inter
est grew on the part of the patrons
and students, In response to the ef
forts put forth by Prof. Parkinson.
Everything has been revolutionized
both Inside the buildings and outside
on the grounds.
Several month ago, the question
was commencing to be asked by Albe
marle citizens, "Wonder If Professor
Pirklnson will be here another year?"
It has been learned that he will stay,
for he has agreed to, and while the
school board has not yet contracted
with him for another year, there is
absolutely no danger but that they
will, as the question of him staying
rests entirely with Professor Parkin
son, who has expressed his desire of
being here another year.
The now auditorium is nearing
completion, the outsido work being
already practically complete. This
new building will almost double the
capacity of the city graded school. It
will, when completed, he one of the
handsomest buildings in Albemarle.?
