Pains AU Over I
"You are welcome," says Mrs. Nora Guffey, of Broken
Arrow, Okla., "to use my letter in any way you want to,
if it will induce some suffering woman to try Cardui. I had
pains all over, and suffered with an abscess. Three phy
sicians failed to relieve me. Since taking Cardui, I am in
better health than ever before, and that means much to me,
because I suffered many years with womanly troubles, of
different kinds. What other treatments I tried, helped me
lor a lew days only."
Don't wait, until you are taken down sick, before tak
ing care of yourself. The small aches and pains, and other
symptoms of womanly weakness and disease, always mean
worse to follow, unless given quick treatment.
You would always keep Cardui handy, if you knew
what quick and permanent relief It gives, where weakness
and disease of the womanly system makes life seem hard
to bear. Cardui has helped over a million women. Try it.

This vivid and sensational presiden

I'nless the result of November 5
should be absolutely conclusive, the
excitement of American politics will

The republican committee express

And the Progressive party are en
j thutastically sure that Mr. Roosevelt
will be elected.
The impartial observers In the
country agree that Wilson's chances
are best but that the progress of the
campaign may develop increasing
formidable strength for Roosevelt or
Taft in the elecoral college.

There are a great many people who
regard It as distinctly probable that
the strength of the three leading can

under the constitution, into the house
of representatives, in tills connection
these are the facts to consider.
in the election of a president by the
house of representatives, eacii of the
48 states has a single vote, and the
political majority in the statt? delega
tion determines for whom that vote
is cast. There are 22 stale delega
tions in which the republicans have a
majority, ami four in which the demo
crats and republicans are tied. These
four tied states are .Main, with two
democrats and two republicans; Ne
braska, with three democrats and
three republicans; New Mexico, with
one democrat and one republican, and
Rhode Island, with one democrat and
The state that would cast votes
for a democrat are Alabama. Arizona,

Never before in American history
I lias there been found on the eve of
I a presidential election ;. house so

make a choice improbable, H not im
possible, under the party divisions
If Wilson should receive 260 votes
and lack the seven votes necessary to
a majority of the electoral college,
he would not be elected, and the
Roosevelt-Taft electoral votes would
be strong enough to throw the elec
tion Into the house. Then the equal
party division of the states might
and probably would make an election
of a president practically impossible
by the bouse.
Whereupon, after ballotts extending
through the session, the elections, un
der the constitution, would go to the
senate through the necessity of elec
ting a vice president and presiding of
ficer.T he choice would be restricted
to the two candidates receiving the
highest vote for vice president in the
general election. In this case the vice
president or presiding officer of the
senate so elected would become the
president of the United States.
Rut notice the complications. The
senate is republican, and the republi
can senate would naturally choose
tli? republican candidate for vice
president, even though he had bent
I beaten, world without end, in the No
' vember ballot. So that In the not im
probable event of the election going
to the senate, that republican party
might elect its own presiding officer,
himself a candidate and make ? Sunny

even one vote, in the electoral col

ed to make a choice the senate might
make one or the other of the minority
candidates of a dovlded or defeated
republican party for vice president the
executive of the republic.
If the turn the senate ahould by
death or persuasion divide equally

Reputation is Not Character
BUT CHARACTER USUALLY
Determines and Establishes Reputation!
We have establishsd a reputation for giving
every one a square deal upon a Piano or Organ.
We sell pianos from the most artistic down to the
cheaper makes. We do not recommend the cheap
est pianos, for they are like paper bottom shoes,
made to sell and not to use. Our medium priced
pianos at Two Hundred and Seventy-Five Dollars
are reliable and can be recommended and depend
ed upon to give satisfaction.
We sold at one time in Edgefield three pianos
at Eight Hundred Dollars a piece. Our customers
are numbered in every town in the counties adjoin
ing Greenwood county, and in states as far off as
Missouri and Mississippi.
We can give the names of hundreds of well
satisfied piano customers and thousands of organ
purchasers who praise our goods and recommend
our firm. Give us a trial and we will not disap
point you in the price of our instruments or qual
ity of our goods, nor will we lowjr the standard
of our high reputation. Give us a call.
