DO YOU ENJOY EATING
Or Doea Everything You Eat
Experts declare that the reason
Stomach disorders aro so common In
this country Is duo to hasty and
careless habits of eating. Stomach
troubles and run-down conditions also
initially go together.

"I have boon troubled with a bad

Vlnol makes weak stomachs strong
because it strengthens and tones up

Not Merely One of Politics.
Washington. March 4.?The Inaugural
address of President Woodrow Wilson
Is as follows:
Th?le bus been n change of govern
ment. It began two years ugo. when
the bouse of representatives became
Democratic by u decisive majority. It
IlilH now been completed. The senate
about to assemble will also be Demo
cratic. The ofllces of president and
vice president have' been put Into the
hands of Democrats. What does the
change mean? That Is the question
that Is uppermost iu our minds today.
That Is the quest ion I am going to try
to answer. In order. If I may. to Inter
pret the occasion.
it means much more than the mere
success of n pur.y. The success of a
party menus little except when the
nation Is using that party for n large
and definite purpose. No one can nils
take the purpose for which the nation
now seeks to use the Democratic party.
It seeks to use it to Interpret a change
In its own plans and point of view.
Some old things with which we bad
grown familiar and which had begun
to creep Into the very bablt of our
thought and of our lives have altered
their aspect as we have latterly looked
critically upon them with fresh, awak
ened eyes; have dropped their disguises
and shown themselves alien and sin
ister. Some new things as we look
frankly upon them, willing to compre
hend their real character, have come
to assume the aspect of things long be
lieved in and familiar, stuff of our own
convictions. Wo have been refreshed
by a new insight Into our own life.
Our Model Government.
We see that In many things life
Is very great. It is Incomparably great
in its material aspects, in its body of
wealth, in the diversity and sweep of
Its energy, iu the Industries which have
been conceived and built up by the
genius of Individual men und the lim
itless enterprise of groups of men. it
is great also, very great. In its moral
force ' Nowhere else In the world have
noble men and women exhibited In
more striking forms the beauty and
the energy of sympathy and helpful
ness and counsel In their efforts t>> rec
tify wrong, alleviate suffering and set
the weak In the way of strength and
hope. We have built up. moreover,
a great system of government, which
bus stood through a long age as in
many respects n model for those who
seek to set liberty upon foundations
that will endure against fortuitous
change, against storm and accident.
Our life contains every great thing and
contains It in rich abundance.
Hut the evil has come with the good,
and much tine gold tins been corroded.
With riches has come Inexcusable
waste. Wo have squandered a great
part of what we might have used and
have not stopped to conserve the ex
ceeding bounty of nature without
which our genius for enterprise would
have been worthless und Impotent,
scorning to he careful, shamefully
prodigal as well as admirably efficient.
We have been proud of our Industrial
achievements, but we have not hith
erto stopped thoughtfully enough to
count the human cost, the cost of lives
snuffed out. of energies overtaxed ami
broken, the fearful physical and splr
Itunl cost to the men and women and
children upon whom the dead weight
and burden of it all bus fallen pitiless
ly the years through. The gronus and
agony of it all had not yet reached
our ears, the solemn, moving under
tone of our life, coming up out of tho |
mlnea and factories and out of every
home where the struggle bod its inti
mate and familiar seat. With the
great government went many deep se
cret things which we too long delayed
to look into and scrutinize with can
did, fearless eyes. The great govern
ment wo loved has too often been
made use of for private and seltlsb
purposes, and those who used it hud
forgotten the people.
Duty of Americans Outlined.
At Inst a vision tins been vouchsafed
us of our life as a whole. We see the
bad with tbe good, the debased and
decadent with the sound and vital.
With this vision we approach new af
fairs. Our duty Is to cleanse, to re
consider, to restore, to correct the evil
without impairing tbe good, to ptlfifj
and humanize every process of our
common life without weakening or
sentimentalizing it. There has been
something crude and heartless and un
feeling In our bast.- to succeed and l>e
great. Our thought baa been. "Let ev
ery man look out for himself; let ev
ery generation look out for itself."
wtiile wo reared giant machinery which
made it Impossible that any but those
who stood at tho levers of control
should have a chanco to look out for
themselves. We bod not forgotten out
morals. We remembered well enough
that wi had set up a policy wblcb was
meant to serve tbe humblest as well as
the most powerful, with an eye single
to the standards of Justice ?i>d fair
piny, and remembered It with pride.
I ? - -'
Ruft we were very heedless and In ?
hurry to be great
We have come now to the aober sec
ond thought The scales of heedless
ness buve f?llen from our eyes. We
have made up our minds to square ev
ery process of our national life agnln
with the Standards we ho proudly set
up at the beginning and have always
carried at our hearts. Our work is a
work of restoration.
Things to Bo Accomplished.
We have Itemized with some degree
ff particularity the things that ought
to be altered, and here are some of the
chief items: A tariff which cuts us otT
from our proper part in the commercu
of the world, violates the Just princi
ples of taxation and makes the govern
ment a facile- instrument In the bands
of private interests; u bankiug and cur
rency system based upon the necessity
of the government to sell Its bonds tlfty
years ago and perfectly adapted to con
centrating cash and restricting credits;
an industrial system which, tuke it ou
all its sides, financial as well as ad
ministrative, holds capital in lendiug
strings, restricts the liberties and lim
its the opportunities of labor and ex
ploits without renewing or conserving
the natural resources of the country; a
body of agricultural activities never
yet given the elllclency of greut busi
ness undertakings or served as It
should be through the Instrumentality
of science taken directly to the farm
or afforded the facilities of credit best
suited to its practical needs; water
courses undeveloped, waste places un
reclaimed, forests unteuded, fast dis
appearing without plan or prospect of
renewal unregarded waste heaps nt
every mine. We have studied aa per
haps no other nation has the most ef
fective means of production, but we
have not studied cost or economy as
we should either as organizers of In
dustry, as statesmen or as Individuals.
Society's Duty to Itself.
Nor have we studied und perfected
tho means by which government may
be put at the service of numanity lu
safeguarding the health of the nation,
the health of Its men and its women
and its children, us well as their rights
In the struggle for existence. This is
no sentimental duty. The tlrm basis
of government is Justice, uot pity.
These are matters of justice. There can
be no equality or opportunity, the first
essential of Justice in the body politic,
if men and women and children be
not shielded In their lives, their very
vitality, from the consequences of great
industrial and social processes which
they cannot alter, control or singly
cope with. Society must see to It that
it does not Itself crush or weaken or
damage its own constituent parts. The
first duty of law is to keep souud the
society it serves. Sanitary laws, pure
food laws and Inws determining con
ditions of labor which individuals are
powerless to determine for themselves
are Intimate parts of the very busi
ness of justice and legal' eltlciency.
These are some of the things we
ought to do and not leave the others
undone, the old fashioned, never to be
neglected, fnnihi mental safeguarding
of property and of individual right.
This is the high enterprise of the new
day: To lift everything that concerns
our life tis a nation to the light that
shines from the hearth lire of every
man's conscience und vision of the
right, it Is inconceivable we should do
this as partisans; It Is Inconceivable we
should do it in Ignorance of the facts
as they are or In blind haste. We shall
restore, not destroy. We shall deal
with our economic system as it Is and
as it may be modified, not as it might
be If we had a clean sheet of paper
to write upon, and step by step wo
shall make it what It should be In the
spirit of those who question their
own wisdom and seek counsel and
knowledge, not shallow self satisfac
tion or the excitement of excursions
whither they cannot toll. Justice, and
ouly Justice, shall always be our motto.
Task Not Merely One of Politics.
And yet It will be no cool process of
mere science. The nation has been
deeply stirred?stirred by a solemn pas
sion, stirred by the knowledge of
wrong, of Ideals lost, of government
too often debauched and made an in
strument of evil. The feelings with
which we face this new nge of right
aud opportunity sweep ncross our
heartstrings like some air out of God's
own presence, where Justice and mercy
I are reconciled and the Judge and the
j brother are one. Wo know our task to
be no mere task of politics, but a task
which shall search us through and
through, whether we be able to under
stand our time and tho need of our
people, whether we be Indeed their
spokesmen and Interpreters, whether
we have the pure heart to comprehend
and the rectified will to choose our
high course of action.
This Is not a day of triumph: it is
9 day of dedication. Here muster not
the forces of party, but the forces of
humanity. Men's hearts wait upon un;
men's lives bung in the balance:mon's
hopes call upon ns to sny what we
will do Who shall live lip to the great
trust? Who dares fall to try? I sum
mon nil honest men. nil patriotic,'all
forward looking men. to my side. God
helping tue, I will not fall them If they
will but Counsel and sustain me.

Pains All 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 Cardul. I had
pains all over, and suffered with an abscess. Three phy
sicians failed to relieve me. Since taking Cardul, 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 1 tried, helped me
for a few 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. Cardul has helped over a million women. Try it
