"I used to be troubled with a weakness peculiar to
women," writes Mrs. Anna Jones, of Kenny, 111. "For
nearly a year, I could not walk, without holding my sides.
I tried several different doctors, but I grew worse. Finally,
our druggist advised Cardui for my complaint. I was so
thin, my weight was 115. Now, I weigh 163, and I am
never stele I ride horseback as good as ever. 1 am in
fine hoalth at 52 years."
We have thousands of such letters, and more are
arriving daily. Such earliest testimony from those who
have tried it, surely proves the great value of this vegeta
ble, tonic medicine, for women.
Cardui relieves women's sufferings, and builds weak
women up to health and strength. If you are a woman,
give it a trial. It should help you, for it has helped a mil
lion others. It Is made from pure, harmless, herb ingredi
ents, which act promptly and surely on the womanly organ*.
It is a good tonic. Try it l Your druggist sells it

Oil! why should hitter tears be shed,
In sorrow o'er the mounded sod,
When verily there arc no dead
Of all tho children of our God?
They who are lost to outward sense
Have hut flung off their rohes of
And clothed in Heavenly radiance,
Attend us on our lonely way.
While sorrow's tears our eyes have
Shed o'er the consecrated dust
Too much our darkened souls forget
The lessons of enduring trust.
Let living faith serenely pour
Her sunlight on our pathway dim,
And death can have no terrors more
But holy joy shall walk with Him.

May 18, Is Executed in Tito Weeks
After Committing Crime.
Columbia, July 14.?For the murder
on May 18 of Aaron Campbell, his
son-in-law, and J. H. Campbell, the
father of Aaron, in Lee county. M. L.
Garrett, who has served terms on the
chaiugang of his county an 1 In the
state penitentiary, was this morning
electrocuted at the state prism In
the presence of some 35 witnesses. In
the crowd were several citizens of the
neighborhood where the crimes were
committed. A brother of Aaron Camp
bell was present to witness the legal
atonement for the death of his broth-1
er and father.
Garrett, who duriug the period of)
his confinement at the ponltentiary
has apparently faced death with Mr
greatest fear, this morning walked
into the death chamber and sat in
the chair with splendid composure,
though it was evident in the low
tones that he used that he felt deeply
the awful seriousness of the moment.
His last request was:: "Kill me quick
and don't hurt me any more than you
Garrett's deed was prompted by a|
fierce jealousy. Hatred for the man
who married his daughter caused
him to go to her home and tin? dou
ble, killing resulted. Garrett then
forced his daughter to accompany him
to the woods nearby, where he stayed
in hiding for several days. Blood
hounds fiom the penitentiary trailed
the man and finally led to his place
of hiding where he was captured with
Lisbon, July 14.?The farmers are
getting up with their work and "lay-1

for up-land com. Young corn is not
suffering as yet, but a good soaking
rain would make thing look brighter
