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
has cured thousands. It should do the same for you.
Mrs. Mary Neely, of Denver, Tenn., says, 4I think
there is no tonic on earth, as good as Cardui. 1 used it
with the very best 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.

LAURENS, SOUTH CAROLINA
COWARD AND LIAR
SAYS THE GOVERNOR
In Speaking of the Charges of Mayor
Grace Relative to Fraftlng in Char
leston by Governor's Constables.
Columbia, S. C, June 1 I.?it begins
to look ? l!fr.'.o .Ike the state campaign
is going to be overshadowed by fire
works which are to be cet off about
the same time right here in Columbia.
John P. Grace, mayor of Charleston,
primed the gun and set the fuse in an
odltorial he wrote for "Common
sense," his weekly newspaper, in
which he said things about "graft" In
connection with the Charleston liquor
situation, and pointed the editorial
fingers directly at the governor of
South Carolina. Mr. Grace admitted
yesterday that he wrote the editorial,
"I wrote the editorial in Common
Sense regarding the graft conditions In
Charleston, and I have no desire to
avoid the .responsibility for anything
I have said. I am ready to sustain
everything that I wrote."
The governor don't like that at all,
and here's his comment today:
I ^If Graco says; thai: I received any
graft money he is a liar and a coward.
? "All t^biti Investigation of this mat
ter by the committee is a preliminary
scheme to Injure me."
The governor was real angry when
he discussed this affair with certain
newspaper men today?who have ac
cess to his otl'.ee; all of them have
not?and he went right after Grace
with the bark off. Indeed, the g0V:
ernor sprinkled his opinion of Mr.
Grace pretty liberally with that par
ticular selection of adjective;. and
verbiage characteristic of the governor
on more or less frequent occasions.
The few words that best describe the;
situation are: the governor is some
What It's All About.
Here's what opened the hostilities:
Folks all over the state know the
new weekly paper in Charleston call
ed "Common Sense" Mr. John P.
Grace's paper. A red-hod editorial in
that paper told why there had been
a split-up between Please and Grace,
who were at one time political bed
fellows-and in a single bed. at that:
they were so close together. The pa
per charged in pretty strong terms j
thai there had been graft in Charles
ton In the handling of the blind-tiger
situation: that the governor promised
to let Charleston run her blind tigers
In her own way. or do away with them
in her own way. or handle the situa-1
lion, whatever it was: and he didn't
exactly let the city do that. Thereby
was released the story. The editorial .
made the broad statement that graft
could be traced directly to the gover
nor's ofllee, and finally Mr. Mayor John;
P. Grace, of Charleson. admitting the'
authorship of that editorial, and. de
claring he Is going to tell it all if the
investigating committee subpoenaes
him, goes right to the point in a state
ment quoting him yesterday, in which
he says: "I can prove that graft exists
In Charleston, and I will say. as I have
stated on several previous occasions,
that I can trace the graft to the gov
ernor's office In Columbia."
Will Suhpoenne Grace Tuesday.
Now it begins to look like' the fur
is going to fly, and the developments
are expected to be forthcoming in a
very few days.
The legislative investigating com
mittee, especially charged with find
ing out things about the governor, the
old dispensary and everybody connect
ed with the "Great Moral Institution,"
will gather in Columbia again Tuesday
morning. and immediately the ad
journed session gets down to business,
a summons will issue for Mr. John P.
The call of this meeting has been
Issued by Mr. H. B. Carlisle of Spar
tanburg. chairman of the body.
Here's the F.dltorlul.
The "Common Sense" editorial, im
mediately back of the present situa
tion, admitted by Mr. Grace to be his
own product, is as follows: *
"tiraft and Grafters.*1
"We are publishing on thlfl page a
letter written to Governor Please by
Mr. Grace about eighteen months ago,
It Is the first chapter explanatory of
the relations which have grown up be
tween these gentlemen. We ask our
readers to weigh every word of it, be
cause It touches the vital question of
their local self government. Peforo
Mr. Grace agreed to support Mr.
Please, he asked but one question: and
that was what did the governor, if
elected, intend to do toward restoring
to Charleston control over her purely
domeslc affairs? His promise was to
gtve up.the largest possible measure of
freedom; and.upon this assurance'Mr.
Graoe exerted..every ..effort toward his
election and-toward the defeat of Mr.
Featherstone, who had In the most
wanton manner, in a speech at Hibern
ian Hall during (he campaign, insult
ed the people of Charleston by telling1
them that he did not want their votes
?that he was a prohibitionist, and, if
elected, that he would do everything
in his power to take from Charleston
her right to settle the liquor question
for herself. For tventy years thl i
question has been a thorn In Charles
ton's side. She has been foot-balled
by every political charlatan who has
seen fit to exploit her before the rest
of the state, and we leave it to ?very
candid judge of present conditions to
say whether or not the last condition
Is not worse than the first. Purely with
the object In view of working out
Charleston's salvation in this respect
Mr. Grace supported Governor Dleaae,
and he took nothing for granted. He
exacted a definite promise. This Is
manifested in Governor Blease's inau
gural mossage. In which he recom
mends the relief sought. We leave It
also to the people of Charleston to
say whether or not invlolatlon of Gov
ernor Dlease's promise It was neces
sary to put constables here. In spite
of Mr. Grace's protests, he did It. He
not only put constables here, but im
mediately those constables began a
system of graft which has never been
equaled even In the worst days of the
state dispensary. We make this state
ment fearless of contradiction. It can
not be denied. We hayo traced this
graft practically up to the governor
himself; and we say that it Is a shame
less situation; and back of it all, is
