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."

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

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.

Th? Castle of Despond.
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

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

the stars and stripes Moating over it ?

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

garden and ask Miss Qoodwln if she
will come in and make tea';" The pro
fessor on finding the young lady said.

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.
The best tobacco in Siam is grown
at Petchabtin. r\ Is planted in open

to Bangkok, where it is smoked in the
palace and distributed to the chief of

"Is there anyth'ng out of the way
"Yes. You didn't say what you

Bribery In English Elections.
Bribery Is a term which every candi?

realized that the game is not worth

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?

or relatives of electors may constitute
an offense, and the quantity is imma?

The withdrawal of custom from a
