attendants. And then there was that
venerable Jockey performance, the cul
mlnatlon of which was a leap from the
rlng to a standlng position, albeit at
an angle of thlrty degreea. on the
horse's back. In the old circuses ll
was the custom of the horscman t*
miss the crownlng Jump two or three
times ln order that a fiercer flame of
lnterest mlght be kindled ln the audi
ence. After two fallures the band
would stop (always the presagc of a
moment of straln su[?reme), the horse's
head would be loosed. be would be
urged to a greater pace, and the feat
would gloriously succeed. Then what

Remarkable Inatinct.
"Bvery time 1 go shopplng I thank
heaven that 1 have a good business
head," said the woman who boasts
that her qulck wlt always savcs her
from flnanclal loss. "A saleswoman
came very near gettlng Into trouble
today over a belt I bought The only
thlng that saved her was my business
lnstlnct. Flrst I bought a belt for
$1.25 and paid with a two dollar blll.

Bernard Shaw'a Excuae.
Bernard Shaw was Invited to a ban
quet ln bonor of the sculptor Rodin.
He sent the followlDg letter as his er
cuse for not attendlng:
"For me a bonquet to Rodln Is qulte
superfluous. I have already taken
measures to assume Immortallty for
myself by nttachlng my name to that
of Rodln. Henceforth In every ency
clopedla you will read, 'Bernard Shaw;
subject of a bust by Rodln; otherwiso
unknown.'
"If the bust ls lost, broken or apolled.
so much the better for me," he con
tlnues. "They will speak of tho lost
Bernard Shaw of Rodln,' as today they
speak of the lost Athena of Thldlas.
Nothing can be more beautiful than
the statues which no one ever saw.
Therefore I have done all that ls neces
sary. 1 can get along witbout ban

Dramatic Mlrror.
The Unreality of Opera.
There are people who stlll complaln
of the unreallty of opera, who cannot
subject themselves to Its illuslon. And
lndeed the Illuslon of opera breaks
down 11 everythlng ln it Is not kept at
the samo dlstance from reallty. In
that world of muslcal expression we
must never be suddenly lowered by
any lncongruous detall Into the ordl
nary world of prose. Reallsm, the at
tempt to work upon the emotions by
complete iUusion of reallty, Is dlsas
troua ln opera. If the scene ls a rail?
way station we remembcr at once that
people do not sing when they are
catchlng tralns.-London Times.

"Yes, there is some rlsk," answered

In Bad Fix
"l had a mishap at the age of 41, which left me in bad
fix," writes Mrs. Georgia Usher, of Conyers, Ua.
"I was unconscious for three days, and after that I
would have fainting spells, dizzinessj nervoMness^ sick
headache, heart palpitation and many strange feehngs
"I suffered greatly with ailments due to the change: of
life and1 had.3 doctori, but they did no good, so I ccncTuded

all my housework."

Do not allow yourself to get into a bad fix. You might
eet in so bad you v/ould find it hard to get out
Better take Cardui while there is time, while you are
still in moderately good health, just to conserve your strength
and keep you in tip top condition.
In this way your troubles, whatever they are. will grad
ually grow smailer instead of larger-you will be on the
up-grade instead of the down-and by and bye you will
arrive at the north pole of perfect health.
