Gave Up Hope
"I suffered five years, with awful pains, due to woman
ly troubles," writes Mrs. M. D. McPherson, from Chad
bourn, N. C. "They grew worse, till I would often faint
I could not walk at all, and I had an awful hurting hi my
side; also a headache and a backache.
I gave up and thought I would die, but my husband
urged me to try Cardui, so, I began, and the first bottle
helped me. By the time the third bottle was used, I could
do all my work. All the people around here said I would
die, but Cardui relieved me."
For more than 50 year*, Cardui has been relieving
woman's sufferings, and making weak women strong and
well During this time, thousands of women have written,
like Mrs. McPherson, to tell of the really surprising results
they obtained by the use of this purely vegetable, tonic
remedy for women.
Cardui strengthens, builds, restores, and relieves or pre
Vc?ts unnecessary pain and suffering from womanly troubles.
If you are a woman, begin taking Cardui, today.

GOVERN MEINT TO AID
IN CROP MOVEMENT
Treasurer SlcAdoo Orders Twenty-five
tu Pitt) Milli.us oi Dollars Deposit-'
cd in Westen and Southern Hanks
to Aid in Mi'Ving Crops.
Washington, Vug, 1.- -Secretary Me
Adoo Frida) cipcentrated the efforts1
of the treasury department upon the
collection ot Information for use in
the distribution of the promised twen
ly-llve to Ifty nillion dollars govern
ni.nt minis u agricultural regions
i the south uid west. The relative
needs of the various sections where
harvests are uider way will be can
vassed. Treaairy officials are con
fident today Hut the platt will be ef
fective in relie/lng prospective tight
uess of mono) cliaracterlstlc of the
crop moving bmisoii.
Twonty-tlve o fifty million dollars
of government funds will be deposit'
ed in the natlotal hanks of the south
and wesi at owe by Secretary McAdoo
to facilitate tie movement of crops.
Federal, state and municipal bonds
and prime conmerclu) paper will be
accepted as security for the money
upon which the banks will pay two
per cent Intereit.
The motive if Secretary McAdoo in
establishing t'xla aow policy Is to
anticipate the money stringency In
the late summ r and fall, which In
variably necon panics the marketing
and movement of crops, especially
who; the croH are utusaally larga,
as the harves now beginning lore
casts, lie Intends to take time by
the forelock ai.d prevent or minimize
the usual tightness of money. In a
statement Thu-sday night the secre
tary made the significant answer that
government bonds would be accepted
at par as security for the new depos
its and thai the additional money
would be placed only with hanks
which have taken out at least forty
per cent of theif authorized circula
United states two per cent bond,
serving ns security for most of the
national hank circulation, have been
depressed recently to new low market
records, dropping to 95 3-4 during the
past few days The secretary's
willingness to iccept tins.' bonds at
par as security for the twenty-live to
Ufiy millions of promised deposits
and the Inducement to the national
hanks to increase their circulation up
i to the forty poi cent limit is expected
j io help in restoring the parity of the
j depressed 2's, by creating a new mar
ket for them.
... To Make Deposits Available.
For the first tlmo In history the
government will accept prime com
mercial paper as security for depos
its. This privilege wlH he granted,
announced the secretary, in order lo
make those special deposits available
to the hanks on securities readily
within their reach.
"The commercial paper submitted,"
added Mr. McAdoo. "shall first he
passed upon and approved by the
Clearing house committees of the cit
ies in which the banks offering such
paper may he located \\] commer
cial paper and bonds must finally bo
passed upon and accepted by the sec
Approved commercial paper will
be accepted a> security for the de
posits at Gl"? per cent ot its face value
1 and high class state, municipal and
other bonds, exclusive of government
bonds, at 7."> per cent of their market
i The additional deposits will be
I placed witli the national hanks in the
two or three principal cities in each
of the states where harvesting now
is in progress and where the demands
for money for moving the crops most
conveniently can be met. The scc
n tary said it would not be practica
ble lo scatter the deposits among the
smaller cities, especially in view of
the character of securities necessary.
The banks will be ropiscd to re
turn the money to the public treasury
i when the Crops hue beon moved.
The present suggestion Mr. McAdoo
. said Is that I I per cent bo repaid In
' December, per cent in January
30 per cent In February and 2? per
cent In March next,
To he Prompt)) Vvailable.
"Steps are now b> inn taken to (ai
ry out the plan." ac" led the score; ry
"so that the funds may he promptl>
available for the movement of crops.'
Xams of the hands o receive the de
posits and other d tails of the ar
rangemenl will be announced later
This liew policy is the antithesis of
that adopted by former secretary
of the Treasury MacVeagh, who a
year ago declined to make govern
ment deposits to relieve the tight
money market on the ground that
the moderate surplus ot te '.oral funds
at that time should be held as a re.
serve to be Uti'ized a: some possible
With the net balance in the ten
oral fund today amounting tv? nearb
$132,0000,000 Sec ret a r> Me id ?> haa
taken the stand that tlio govt fnment
should anticipate the sltur.iien by
placing deposits where ; nl lit the
time, they are needed.
If the full $50,000,000 is iep >slted
this step will temporarily almost
double the government's deposits
with the hanks which now hohl f*i8,

Just as Secretary McAdoo was an
nouncing his plan Senator Tillmatl,
of South Carolina, was Issums a btule
