Blood Was Wrong
All women, who suffer from the aches and pains, due
to female ailments, are urged to try Cardui, the reliable,
scientific, tonic remedy, for women. Cardui acts promptly,
yet gently, and without bad effects, on the womanly systen
relieving pain, building up btrength, regulating the system,
and toning up the nerves. During the past half century,
thousands of ladies have written to tell of the quick curative
results they obtained, from the use of this well-known medicine.
Mrs. Jane Callehan suffered from womanly trouble for
nearly ten years. In a letter from Whitevilie, N. C, she
?ays: "I was not able to do my own housework. My
stomach was weak, and my blood was wrong. I had back
ache, and was very weak. I tried several doctors, but they
did me no good. I used Cardui for 3 or 4 months, and now
I am In the best health I have ever been. I can never praise
Cardui enough." It is the best tonic, for women.
Whether seriously sick, or simply weak, try CarduL

How Arkansas Governor Describes
Little Rock, Ark., December 20.?
Characterizing the Arkansas peniten
tiary under the lease system as "a
burning, seething bell, consuming hu
man beings," who are ' being fed into
It In a manner which results in noth
ing but making fortunes for contrac
tors," Governor George W, Donaghey
today issued a lengthy statement in
issuing pardons to old State convicts.
Sharp criticism of the Governor's ac
tion from State officials and citizens
had previously drawn from the Execu
tive the statements that "aP those
who oppose the abolishment of the
inhuman convict system, which we
now have In Arkansas, are. in my
opinion, bound in the direction of that
place spoken of by Governor Blease
in connection with the Constitution
of his State, and it Is my belief they
are going to land there in spite of ev
ery effort of mine to prevent them
Further criticism of the Governor's
course resulted in another statement
According to a newspaper compila
tion, based on the State records, 43 of
those pardoned by Governor Donaghey
were convicted of murder or man
slaughter; one hundred and eleven
grand larceny, twenty-six assault
kill and sixty-six of crimes ranging
from hog-stealing to bigamy.

Man Rigged Up Boat With Small
Engine That Could Go.
Won First Place in Race?Everything
Lovely Till Inquisitive Swimmer
Dived Beneath Craft and
Newborn, NT. C.?Georgo Arthur, a
fisherman, in tho neighborhood of
Adams creek, near Neuso river, 35
miles from this city, caught In one of
his nets a largo shurk. Ho penned
it In a pool which he made for the
purpose, and after exhibiting it there
for a month or more it suddenly van
ished. Arthur told tho Inquirers that
bo had taken pity on the "varmint"
and returned it to its native waters.
About this tlmo Arthur purchased a
"long, low, rakish" skiff, explaining to
his friends that ho Intended placing
an engine in it and making a racing
boat out of it. For several weeks
he devoted many hours a day to re
modeling it and placing a two-horse
power engine In 1*. At last ho an
nounced that tho boat was In readi
ness for any and all comers, and of
fered to bet that he would win. Sev
eral men who thought they had fast
boats inspected Arthur's boat nnd
laughed at his diminutive motor. Hut
he said it was of a new and powerful
typo nnd that anyway he'd back k
to win. So they ararnged a rnco.
There were six contestants, and
among the number were some ex
ceedingly fast boats. Arthur was ask
ed to give a trial exhibition of his
engine's ability, but he refused. He
said they could see it work the day of
the raco. On the appointed day sev
eral hundred people lined tho river
bank. The course was about five
miles. Tho boats were lined up for
the start nnd at the crack of a pistol
off they went. So faint was the ex
haust of Arthur's new engine that It
could scarcely be heard, and within
the first 100 yards he was left far be
hind tho other racers. However,
things had only begun to happen.
Arthur was seen to settle back in
the st :? rman's seat and push a small
lever. Immediately the little boat
sprang forward. Faster and faster It
cut through the water. Passing the
other boats and their startled crews,
it sped on toward the goal and arrived
several minutes ahead of Us nearest
That the little engine was the real
thing w;is no longer doubted, and tho
owner received many offers to pur
chase, but declined them till
After that Arthur was frequently |
seen on the river with his craft cut*
ting through the water at a terrlflf
Recently a party of picnickers vis
ited the place, and during the day
hired Arthur to take them for a trip
on the river. They, too. were amazed
at the boat's speed. One of the more
inquisitive decided that there was
something not entirely on the level
about tho englno. Arriving nt a de
sirable point, a suggestion that tho
party go In swimming was made, and
soon several of the young men were
j in the water. Suddenly one of them
dived beneath tho boat and when he
arose to tho surface lost no time In
scrambling back Into tho craft. He
said ho had seen a shark Just beneath
Arthur became greatly agitated at
this point and suggested that they
leave at once, but the other members
of the party resolved to see whether
their companion was fooling them.
Seizing an oar. one of tho young mon
Jabbed It Into tho water beneath the
craft, nnd, sure enough, found the
shark. They wero going to kill or
catch It, when Arthur told them that
the fish was In a wire cage beneath
the vessel and that he used It for
motor power. Further Investigation
proved it to be true.
After catching the big fish Arthur
got the Idea of building a ca?e for It
beneath the boat and utilizing It to
tow the boat. To get the . ?di ntnrtcd
Arthur used a pointed nail driven into
tho end of a short stick.
