Failed in Health
"My mother died six years ago," writes Miss Ruth Ward, o? Jerseyville, 111., 'and left me to care for six children. I had never been strong; and this, with the shock of her death, was too much for me. "I failed in health. 1 was tired all the time and did not want to go anywhere, nor care for company. 1 had the headache all the time and such bearing-down pains. "A very dear friend advised me to take Cardui, as it had done her so much good, so I commenced to use it and now I am in good health." m CARDUI J44 The Woman's Tonic Women's pains are relieved or prevented and women's Strength is quickly restored, by Cardui, the woman's tonic You yourself know best if you need it, or not If you do need it, do not delay, but commence to use it at once. Every day of delay, only lets you slide further down the hill. Don't wait, then, but begin to take Cardui today, for its use, no matter how prolonged, cannot harm you and will surely do you good.

One of the finest French renaissance buildings in Fraacs la the ( satis ot Despond, famous in the legendarj lore of the Toulousain country In which It stands. Over the window of one of the inner courtyards Is sculptured in the stone a bend above the motto. "Plus d'Espoir." These were tbc words of Uose de Martial, whose BtOTJ has been sung by the poets of Toe louse. She was the daughter of tin house of Martial, to whom ?he castle belonged, and she was courted DJ ti lord of Castelnat, whose manor sin could see from her window. Hut. al though sh'_> was beautiful and lender hearted, the lord jilted her, and she fell Into a melancholy. She sat even day by the window, whence she could see the fickle lord of Castel nat's manor. One morning lie passed by in the valley below. She sang to him. but he never looked up. "Plus d'Fs polr!" she cried and threw herself out of the witulow on to the flags below. where she was killed. The manor of Martial was known thenceforward M the Castle of Despond. The fine build? ing was falling to luins when M. Fe naille bought it, and he had it com? pletely and skillfully restored before making a gift of it to the nation. His First Taste of Discipline. Admiral Jouett, probably one of the jolliest seadogs our navy ever knew. once U-ld au r.musing story of bis early days as a cadet. "I was a sociable youngster." lie says, "and when 1 went to my hi signaient, the Independence, and saw the stars and stripes Moating over it ? remembered my mother had tanghi me that my first duty was t?; tin? Bag. so I attempted sorno conversation .mi this line with the executive officer wbo had received me when I came on board and who was one of the strictest disci? plinarians In the navy of that day " 'Silence, sir!' he roared at my tirsi question, his face red with anger. ?Si? lence, sir! Who gave you permission to speak? Let me hear only six words from you, sir, while you are On toll ship?"port," "starboard," "yes. sir," and "no, sir." ' "And this was my first discipline in the navy." A Ludicrous Word Twister. Professor William Archibald Spoonsr of Oxford university became famous ?SS a ludicrous word twister. Once at a special service, seeing some women standing at the back of tue church waiting to be seated, lie rushed down the aisle and addressed the OSbSI follows: "Gentlemen, gentlemen. these ladles into their sheets." Being asked at dinner what fruit he would have, he promptly replied, "Pigs. fleas." This is the way in which I?r Spooner proposed to his wife: Being one afternoon at the home of her fu ther. Bishop Harvey Qoodwln of Car lisle, Mrs. Goodwin said, "Mr. B|.a er, will you please go out into the garden and ask Miss Qoodwln if she will come in and make tea';" The pro fessor on finding the young lady said. "Miss Goodwin, your mother t..|.l me to nsk you If you would come in ami take me." Method. Method Is the very hinge of busi? ness, and there is no method without punctuality. Punctuality Is important because It subserves the peace and good temper of a family. Calimi' mind, which it produces, is another advantage of punctuality. A dssor derly man Is always in a hurry. lie has no time to -speak to you because he is going elsewhere, and when lie gets there he is too late for his busi liess or he must hurry away before be can finish it. Siamese Tobacco. The best tobacco in Siam is grown at Petchabtin. r\ Is planted in open fields near the town after the l!oods in September or October, and the first crop, or tips, which is considered tbc best quality, is gathered about Febru? ary and the last about the beginning of May. The very beat quality camini tie purchased, as it is reserved for tbe special use of the king and sent down to Bangkok, where it is smoked in the palace and distributed to the chief of fleers of state. Never Learned How to Live. There are people who go through life looking for slights, an.l tbey are necessarily miserable, for they tind grievances everywhere. One has th?? same pity for such men as for tbe very poor. They are the morally Illit? erate. They have had no reni educa? tion, for they have never learned how to live. Still In the Family.

"Did you ever notice anything pe culiar In Professai IF/i speeckl" in? quired a friend of tbe professor's. "Why, no; I don't think I did." "Well, he would never be guilty of saying what you said just now." "ile wouldn't? Wliat did I say V" "iou said ? don't think 1 did.' " "Is there anyth'ng out of the way about that?" "Yes. You didn't say what you meant at all. You didn't mean that you didn't think, but that you thought you didn't. Professor W. is so careful that ho says exactly what he meaus and nothing else. You do not mean that you do not think when you Bay that, but that you do think that such and SWCfa is DOt Nearly everybody does that, so it sounds queer ?rboa people speak as th.? professor does and ?ay ? think I don't' Instead of ? don't Ihlnk I do,' as tbe average Individual WOOld say. Another of ihe prof.?, idiosyncrasies Is to say 'I'll not' where you or I would say ? won't.' All those HtfJc ways sound queer, but they're ab? solutely correct and irreproachable. The professor uses more perfect Eng? lish thau any one else I know."?New York Press. Bribery In English Elections. Bribery Is a term which every candi? date for a seat in the Imperial assem? bly dreads, for the law visits offend? ers against it With \ery heavy punish? ment, and more than one politician has realized that the game is not worth the candle. Tbe would be M. P. must be very careful not to give, lend or promise money or money's worth to induce an elector to VOtt f?>r him or abstain fron voting fot an Opponent Neither must he pay the day's wages of any voter or give him money for railway fates or Iosa of time. If he does and is elected the candidate loses his seat, and both he and the recipient of bis ill advised gift are liable to twelve months' imprisonment or a flue not ex? ceeding ?200. Even treating the wives or relatives of electors may constitute an offense, and the quantity is imma? terial if the intention is corrupt. The withdrawal of custom from a tradesman, if done with a view to af fectlng the man's vote, constitutes un? due influence, for which the punish? ment is the same as in the case of bribery.?Pearson's Weekly, The Australian Stock Whip. The stock whip in th.? skillful hands of the Australian is not only an article of the greatest utility, but also a for? midable weapon. Owing to Its great length the ?ash varies from twelve to thirty fed and Hie shortness of the butt, which measures only eighteen in- lies, ?t is an extremely difficult and awkward thing to wield, and the be glnner is apt to hurt himself If he does not exercise car.? when practicing. A well trained .stockman, however, can hit a cent every time at ten paces dls tance and with the dreaded lash In his hand, cracking like pistol shots, can keep a ni"h of wild cattle In ?heck. If osed with full force it win .ut through skin and flesh like a knife, ssfys th" Wide World Magazine, but un' beast shows distinct flee the stockman uses it more for the purpose of instill? ing fear than of causing pain. It can also be used as a bolas, a Patagonlan fin-in cf the lasso, ami an adept can catch and hold a beast by causing the lash to curl around Its legs. Luck of Peacock Feathers. The peacock's feathers superstition is nothing like s.. common as It used to be. Perhaps Whistler*! celebrated peacock room helped to break ii down. At any rate, peacock's feathers are or? dinary enough articles of dee..ration in many happy and placid homes. There are shops in London that keep large Stocks "f them, and y.iii may buy tbe W bringen "f misfortune at a shilling a bundle. Did Ih.? superstiti.ni originate bei "?se of the reported pride of the k on the "prid" shall have a fall" theory, or Is It that the Of tlie? feather is supposed t" see un? desirable happenings which somehow gel published upon the housetops?
