Are You Nervous?
* What makes you nervous? It is the weakness of your
womanly constitution, which cannot stand the strain of the
hard work you do. As a result, you break dov/n, and ruin
your entire nervous system. Don't keep this up! Take
Cardui, the woman's tonic. Cardui is made from purely
vegetable Ingredients. It acts gently on the womanly organs,
and helps them to do their proper work. It relieves pain
and restores health, in a natural manner, by going to the
source of the trouble and building up the bodily strength.
Mrs. Orac? Fortner, of Man, W. Va., took Cardui.
This Is what she says about it: "I was so weak and
nervous, 1 could not bear to have anyone near me. I had
fainting spells, and I lost flesh every day. The first dose
of Cardui helped me. Now, I am entirely cured of the
fainting spells, and I cannot say enough for Cardui, for 1
know It saved my life." It is the best tonic for women.
Do you suffer from any of the pains peculiar to women?
Take Cardui. It will help you. Ask your druggist

DOGS TOR FARM IVOS!
AS VALUABLE AS TRUSTY Hir:^
MEN, SAYS WRITER.
American Agriculturists Hnve Not Su
ficiently Appreciate:! Their Wide
Usefulness, Though It Is rec
ognized In Europe.
Tn England and Scotlan 1 farmc:
learned long ago the v..lue of do^
to farm work. There the universal c.
torn Is to have dogs daily do tin
part tho same as trusty hired mou.
Here in America, however, few fa: r.
ers know the value of a well-iraine
dog. We nie the losers hue., use o
this fact. We will, learn, of cours<
in years to come; and working d< .
that are a daily help will replace tl
countless farm help "misfits" now in
posing on the farmer's generosity,
It once happened that the owner c
some sheep dogs worked them b.\c> i
and forth among flocks of sheep ;.
the same place where many farnu ;
wero assembled In convention, Tin
fanners witnessed the work the dog
wero doing ns the sheep were move
from barns to pasture, through pent
gates and lanes. They were amaze,
to find them so helpful and woudere.c
at their intelligence. They saw then
go quietly around the edges of a pas
turo and gather in tho sheep fron
far away, while the owner waited ai
tho gate. They saw them herd the
sheep along tho lanes, doing work twe
men could not have done. And the)
proilted by what they saw.
They began to believe that the use
ful dog will eventually be on most
American farms, when we get to
studying more carefully for ways and
means to save work and expense. It
may bo on some large estates many
different men are employed, thereby
leaving little opportunity for anyone
to train a dog. But on the average
farm this is not the case.
Any farmer tired from a hard day s
toil would praise the faithful dog that
would go the mile or two into the
pasture to bring in the cows while he
prepared the feed for them.
No referenco Is made to the dog we
find on many farms that knows only
enough to run and snap at stock,
driving them in whatever direction
they care to go. Such a dog is of
little value, for ho drives the stoch
away as often as he brings them hack
to the pen they have left. Such a dog
might have developed Into a good one.
It was tho fault o* the mnster that ho
was never trained. Bet no man for
get bow important it is to have his
dog well trained and carefully edu
cated to do his bidding. The green
untrained dog is like tho unbroken colt
or the new hired man. Neither is
good as a real helper until taught to
do as you wish him to do.?Farm and
Why He Was a "Sucker."
Willem K. Mason of Chicago, nt a
banquo' given to lawyers and poli
ticians, was called upon for a story
and told tho following:
"A well-known Illinois politician
was speaking at the same banquet
with a governor of New Jersey some
years ago. The Jersey governor went
into exhaustive figures as to the
wealth, agricultural and manufactur
ing resources of his own state. In
fact, he seemed to lack terminal facil
ities, for he talked about forty min
"Before ho sat down he said: 'I am
to be followed by a silver-tongued or
ator from Illinois, and I hope before
he sits down he will tell us why they
are called "Suckers." '
"Our friend from Illinois said:
'Mr. Toastmaster, when I heard the
description of the agricultural prod
ucts of New Jersey I was .almost
ashamed to come from the corn belt of
Illinois, and when he told n? of bis
state's manufactures, it made Illinois
look small, but I noticed, Mr. Toast
master, that you and the gentlemen
about you seemed incredulous?in
fact, I could tell by your.expression
that you did not believe a word lie
said. I want to say to the governor
of New Jersey that I believe every
word he said, and that is tho reason
I am called a sucker.' "
Blasting at the Canal.
In the last five year.* the operations
on the l'anama canal have required
40,082,860 pounds of dynamite for
blasting, or an average of 8,010,670
pounds per year. Tho estimates for
the year ending June [10, 1012, arc 8,
633,000 and for the 12 months follow
ing only 3,086,600, Tho comparatively
small amount for the latter Is duo to
the approaching completion of the ex
cavation work, Which Will make the
total of dynamite used over 62,000,000
pounds. Beckoned by tons, thnt will
bo 2G.000 tons, which sounds bigger
or smaller according to tho mind of
the person reading It.
For the coming llHcal year the esti
mated need of other materials for
blasting Is 328.000 blasting caps, 1,840
pounds of insulated tap*-, 10,000 fe^t
of connecting wire, 655,800 feet of
lead wire, 627,700 feet of electric
fuses, 36,000 feet of triple tape fuse.
A lot of peoplo eat too much and a
lot more don't eat enough. Some stuff
till there isn't room for another swal
low and then eat some more in be
tween and then kick that thev haven't
enough. There are those whose earn
ings Just spill over In a thimble, but
who expect results as if their weekly
check covered all Manhattan. A good
rule Is to leave off eating while
there's still room for more, and fill It
up the next time.?New York Press.
WORKED NEW VACATION IDEA -
Western Woman "Hired Out" to Her
Husband, and Is Enthusiastio
Over the Result.
The following lot tor was written by
a woman who lives on a farm In Wyo
"To begin with, then, I'm a ranch
er's wife, and was a fanner's daugbtef,
so I know what It means to get up
early and work till late. I've read a
great deal about vacations, but uot i
much about vacations for the woman
on the ranch.
"Most women who llvo on a ranch
know something about horses, and can ;
harness and drive a team. Now every '
one knows that to peoplo who have
always worked with their bands Idle
ness is not rest, and that recreation
comes quicker and surer from a clnu\go
of work; so I 'hired out' to my hus
"We have 75 acres of alfalfa, and
hero In the west men are scarce and
wages aro high, so I hired a girl to do
the housework and take caro of tho
children, whlio I donned a pair of
overalls, a jumper, a broad-brimmed
hat and a pair of stout gloves, and
went forth to take my vacation.
"Tho first day I mowed, and tho
first night I kicked levers and drove
horses all night. 1 wasn't so enthusi
astic the Becond morning, hut I mowed
some more, and raked some, and that
night I slept; and I slept every night
that followed during the harvest, for I
'stayed with It' till the hay was in tho
stack, doing team work altogether, and
when wo were through my husband
said I was 'the best man on the job.'
"I was decidedly a better woman,
for I had gained live pounds of llesh,
stronger nerves, harder muscles, and a
coat of tan that hasn't all worn off
"I told the girl that I was not to bo
consulted about anything, so 1 shifted
tho whole responsibility of the house
hold and did Just as the men did;
washed, ate my meals, and then rest
ed till tlmo to start to work again.
"My girl cost me four dollars per
week and I made $12, which left mo a
clear gain of eight dollars per week
in cash, besides the other good things.
I felt bo rested when 1 took up tho
reins of tho household again that
what had before been a task was now
a pleasure. Keally, It did seem good
to cook a meal once more, and I bad
not thought It possible."?Woman's
Had Given Him Wrong Banner.
Charles H. Holden told tho following
story at a banquet given to some law
yers and their wives at Chicago:
"A prominent educator of a co-edu
cational institution recently told with
evident appreciation tho following
experience of a prominent professor
of a celebrated university in New York
"Tho professor Is blessod with a par
ticularly energetic and progressive
wife, who Is a leader in the suffra
gette movement. When tho recent
demonstrative procession was organ
ized in New York she Insisted upon
tho professor nddlng his influence to
tho movement by participating in tho
procession. He yielded and set out.
The wife's prominence In the move
ment gave her a place In the review
Ing stand and she was mortally chag
rined to seo tho professor, shame
faced, straggling along, carrying his
hanner in such a drooping and care
less way that she could not even see
what was upon It.
"At tho flrBt opportunity her re
proaches fell fierce and fast on tho
professor, who finally managed to
break In with, 'Hut, my dear, my dear,
you really must not blame me; I had
an awful time. What do you think
that banner was? Imagine! It was
a most horrible cartoon of a whisky
soaked and bedraggled hum with tho
motto, "This man can vote, why can't
The Weak Spot.
All the day's provisions except the
butter were ordered by telephone. Tho
housekeeper came to the storo to pick
that out herself.
"That Is a peculiarity of many
women," said the grocer. "No matter
bow long they have boon trading with
a grocer or a butcher, no matter how
reliable they may know him to bo,
they mnko a hobny of one certain com
modity on which they distrust his
judgment. Everything else may bo
ordered by telephone or through tho
clerks, but they Insist upon coming
to tho store and picking out that par
ticular article. Some women want to
sort out tho eggs, others muat tasto
and smell tho butt. ?, or maybe It Is
tho tea or tho coffee or the ohoc.so
they arc suspicious about, It's a
queer notion. If they can trust us In
other things it stands to reason that
we'd give a square deal all tho way
through, but these doubting Thomases
will take no chances."
Proper Credit Given to India.
The art of cementation, by which
iron is carburlzed nnd converted Into
steel on heating In charcoal powder,
has been investigated by Kir Robert
Hadfield in an ancient chisel of Cey
lon, 1,600 years old or more, and he
confirms the claim of India to the dis
covery that has done more than any
other to advance civilisation.
The most complete collection of iron
and steei vpeclmeng from 1,200 to
1,800 years old is in the museum at
