Straight Talk to Women. Queer Will of a Man Without Means He Bequeathed to His Children What They Had Already Inherited His Evil Tendencies. Some time ago, a certain man made a strange will on his death-bed. Not having any money or real estate to bequeath to his children, he left them a written bequest of the tendencies he knew they had already inherit ed from him. \ He wrote: u I bequeath to my son John, my big, bony frame, also my inherited tendency to consumption. To my son Samuel, I give my love for alcoholic liquors and my irritable disposition; to my daughter Jane, my unwillingness to be re strained in my desires, also my tendency to commit suicide." It was unusual, to say the least, yet contained an idea of special interest to women. The man had noticed that his children possessed these tendencies. He knew that they could be mastered. So he drew his children's special attention to them in a way they could not forget. If your bodily female weaknesses were to be called to your attention in like manner, would you not make a stronger endeavor to cure them ? You may have inherited the weak female organs which cause you so much trouble, or they may be the result of your mode of life. In any case, I have this to say to you, and say it I will, in bold, black type: THEY CAN BE STRENGTHENED WITH CARDUI, the great restorative medicine for women. No matter if you have lost confidence—through repeated failures of doctors and other medicines—Wine of Cardui will benefit you, as, in the past 70 years, it has benefited a million other women. For periodical pains, sick headache, backache, dragging down sensations, menstrual irregularity, weakening discharge, etc., no other known remedy will accomplish the good that Wine of Cardui will. Try it. Your druggist sells Wine of Cardui' in $1.00 bottles. Trv it.

RECORD OF COURTS James Raper and John Raper, brothers, were found not guilty of the charge of robbery, by a Jury In the first division of the criminal court yesterday. The Jury spent only a short time deliberating on the flatter, and the verdict was brought In early In the afternoon. The Raper boys were charged with hav ing robbed a negro at Pratt City July 1 last. The case was taken up shortly be fore noon Tuesday, and had occupied all the time of the court until the Jury re tired. A large number of witnesses were in attendance, and there were present continually many relatives of the two men. 'there arc other charges of robbery against the Rapers, hence they are still held in the county Jail. It is probable the other cases will be called for trial within a short time. Something of an unexpected nature de veloped In the criminal court, first divis ion, yesterday afternoon, in the course of the trial of Jim Walker, Jr., on a charge of murder. It is alleged in the indictment that Jim Walker, Sr., and Jim Walker, Jr,, had shot and killed an old white man for the purpose of getting Ills pension money, which it was said he had just collected. When the case was culled yesterday afternoon, the younger entered a plea of guilty. This plea served as a motion for a severance, as the elder Walker pleaded not guilty. The boy was then placed on trial, and the father’s case will probably be taken up today. The trial of Walker, junior, was taken up because the law makes it compulsory, notwithstanding the plea of guilty, inas much as the jury muBt fix the punish ment. A number of witnesses were ex amined and gave testimony. When the Walker boy was placed on the stand, he testified that he alone had kill ed the white man, shooting him several times. He testified further to the effect that his father had compelled him to do the shooting. The boy’s testimony caused a flutter of excitement in the court room, the bailiffs being compelled to call for quiet so that the testimony of the boy could be heard. The case went to the jury late io the evening and a verdict of guil-ty of murder in the first degreo was returned about 10:30 o'clock lust night. The fact that oidy two capital cases have been corhpleted this week, and a third hardly begun, has caused specula tion around the court l^ouse as to the means that will be adopted to clear the docket. The county jail is crowded with pris oners already indicted and others await ing tho action of the grand Jury. Many persons already indicted are out on bond. The dockets of both divisions of the criminal court are filled to an extent which demonstrates that there is more work than can be done in the ordinary court term. It was stated yesterday by one of the of ficials of the court that the grand Jury now in session will certainly find more work for the court, and that some plan Sitters To break up a bad cold and prevent Pneumo n I a, the Bit t e r a Is especially good.

Yesterday all tho cases set for trial In the first division were passed and will be reset for trial at a later date. In the second division a number of misdemeanor cases were tried, but several eases went over. This has been the rule In other divisions since the present term of court started, and the clerks say the practice will doubtless continue to the end, be cause of the mass of cases on hand. The following cases are on the docket of tho first division of the criminal court for today: Jim Walker, Sr., murder: George Rem age, robbery.

Stapleton, affray: Joe Dunn, assault with a weapon; William Smith, assault and battery; Fannie Smith, assault and battery; Sarah Wellborn, defamation; Henry Davis, petit larceny; Pete Law less, abusive language. The case of Nancy Ann Moore vs. the Atlanta and Birmingham Air Line Rail road company. Is still on trial In the circuit court. It .has occupied the atten tion of the court since the beginning of the week, but will most likely be con cluded today. The case Is a damage suit, the plain tiff praying that she be awarded the sum of $30,000 for the death of J. A. Moore, at Roper, Ala. According to the petition. Moore was driving a hog along the road and was attempting to keep the hog from tho railroad track when a train struck him and the animal, killing both.

FE DELIVEBY IS NOW ASSURED FACT Ensley’s Postal Facilities Will be Improved DEEDMEYER’S GOOD WORK Has Assurance of Department That Free Service Will Be Inaugurated at the End of the Present Fiscal Year. Ensley, January 17.—(Special.)—'The news from Washington that Attorney Frank Deedmeyer had secured the promise of the postoffice department to install free delivery of malls In this city at the end of the present fiscal year on the proviso tliat the new building has been completed and is occupied by that time has been received with much satisfaction by the people of this city. Since the postofTlee building is nearing completion and will be ready for use early In February the free delivery system is considered an assured fact as the state ment from the national capital states that this is the only condition In the order of the department. The fiscal year ends July 1 and It Is expected that the system will be put In operation at the beginning of the new fiscal year. On a former trip to Washington Air. Deedmeyer placed tho matter before the department and secured the assurance of the officials that as soon as Ensley show ed a permanent Increase In Its popula tion and that the receipts of the postoffice were permanently 110,000 or over a year, the free delivery would be considered. When Mr. Deedmeyer reported the re sult of this trip It was not thought by the people of Ensley that free delivery was so near. Indeed It was the general opinion that the department could not be induced to reconsider the matter for at least one or two years. But Mr. Deed meyer, filled with undaunted faith In tho possibilities of the city and section, and being a man of unrelenting perseverance determined to keep the proposition be fore the department and when he returned to Washington last Sunday on other busi ness, he determined to again lay the facts and possibilities of the city before the department officials. The special from Washington published In The Age-Herald this morning stating that the system would be Inaugurated showed how well founded was the faith and how sure the persistence of Mr. Deedmeyer.
