It Always Helps
says Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky., In
writing of her experience with Cardul, the woman's
tonic. She says further: "Before I began to use
Cardui, my back and head would hurt so bad, I
thought the pain woild kill me. I was hardly able
to do any of my housework. After taking three Bottles
of Cardui, I began to feel like a new womgn, I so9.
gained 35 pounds, and now, I do all my housework,
as well as run a big water mill.
I wisl4 every suffering woman would give
The Woman's Tonic
a trial. I still use Cardui when I feel a little bad,
and it always does ne good."
Headache, backache, side ache, nervousness,
tired, worn-out feelings, etc., are sire signs of woman
ly trouble. Signs that you need Cardui, the woian's
tonic. You cannot make a mistake in trying Cardul
for your trouble. It has been helping weak, ailing
women for more than fifty years.

How to Make Cotton Growling a Prof.
To the 'Efditor of The News and
Courier: Kindly allow space for prib
lication of this article, in which is
set forth a desire to launch a con
structive movement for the future
prospority of the South. The figures
used are illustrative, to demonstrate
the general proposition, and are not
giveir to invite controversy, although
they are near enough to accuracy,
when a general average is taken, to
be passed as correct.
The cotton erop has not proved a
paying business for the South, and
has been a lo ,ng Am to a majority
of tie cotton planters. It -is not be
cause, generally, the planter has sold
his cotton before the price goes upal;
nor will large crops at low prices or
small crops at higlh prices; or lin
creased yields with 'inrcreased anunrai
of fertilizer, remliedy Mhe Cvii; but tihc
slaiple application of' a simple bus
ittess principle. I believe that staIS
[i(s will show that, taking a 10-year
average; for ithIe wiole cotton hell, it
has red anired three acres of land oi
predrace one 500-pound bale of cot
toi. The samrre 10-year average wi1l
probably show that cotton brought 1
cents the pound or $5.)0 tie bale,
I'ven if the cotton planter got $Mt
for each 500-pound bale, taken as a
whole the ikirnter lost Irroney, prob
Ibly inl every State, except those few
where, I amrr told no commercial fer
tilizers are used. Ily the appended
ligures you will see that it costs
arotnd $26 to produce and place tpon
lire marke, one 500-pround bale of
coion, rt made upt one iare of
lanrd, unrtder normrral conditions; and
about $39 when made upon two acre.;
and about $52 whent made upon fhree
acres. Consequently any profit de
vived could Otntly have cOmtie from the
sale of tire seed.
'lie one-bale-anrr-acrec imrovement is
designed to make tle cotton crop a
paying businress for (ie cotton plait
el, and there is no reasonr why It
shotill interfere with diversifled
c'armtinag, intenatsilied farming or anty
othe Imrovemaenr t for tire bette'renr
of tie farmer. P)ravt ically every
fa'armrc a iin fite cotton helt. has some
iand that will under normal condi
tions, produce one 500-pound iaIc o
eotton oil a seleted acre. Some may-tv
have one, thre', tear or fifty and so
,,n according to tie iumbieIr of acres
of farming land ie owns or rents.
Were it possible tiris year to get eacht

it, and no oth'er land in cottonr, and
