Most of the time I was not able to do my work. I had terrible bearing down pains, my back ached all the time and was very weak. I could scarcely carry anything and suffered agony when I lifted anything. The muscles in my abdomen were so weak I could scarcely lift myself up straight, and I thought I would surely grow crooked. I had difficulty in walking, it was so painful. 1 suffered in hips and back and could hardly raise up at all. At times, I couldn't sit on the chair—would have to lie down I was in such agony. 1 Just sat around and cried. At this time, about five years ago, I began to take Cardui, at my mother’s insistence. After two or three wrecks’ use I saw '*/' jvement. The pains go* \ gradually until they disap IV^ared. In two months I could walk /without pain and could do most of my work. For about three years my Im provement was steady and continued until I had back my health and strength. The cure has been permunent, for I have been in good health for the past two years, due to my having taken Cardui, which effected the cure.” All druggists sell Cardui- Try It. y This Evening The HOTEL HILLMAN Mill Give a Table d’Hote And Every Wednesday and Satur day Evening.

War seems to be the continual subject hanging like the sword of Damocles over the human mind. The moat* thoughtless have learned the details of the tragic conditions, involv ing the death of a royal heir that kindled .he flame that Is spreading over Europe, Asia and the islands of the sea. Globes and maps have been studied—you see swarms of people standing around the <••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••, uation, and many o fthem are quite in teresting. One of the most enlightening as well as otto cf the most Instructive of the recent publications Is “The Empress Freder ick,” published “Anonymously.” Oddly enough, prior to this publication no biography of this wonderful woman has appeared, and little was known of her, this eldest daughter of the late Queen Victoria, and the mother of the present Emperor of Germany. Much of the brilliancy of his distinguished mother has been inherited by the Kaiser, conse quently much Is explained pertaining to the family of the Hohenzollcrns and the policy of its ruling members. In fiction, “When ' William Came.” Monroe’s futurist book, shows that Ger man Invasion of England has haunted the mind of literary dreamers since the be ginning of the year 1914. Rene Bazin, the great French writer, contributes “The Children of Alsace,” picturing with deep feeling the loyalty of the Alsastians to the motherland from which their province was wrested by Ger man conquerors. An historical novel of the Franco-Prus sian war is Walter Bloom’s “The Iron Year.” ft is said that this book was re < ently read aloud by the Kaiser to mem bers of the royal family. “Red Wrath” Is by the brilliant John Oxenham and pertains also to the Fran co-Prussian war. “Changing Russia" is by Stephen Gra ham, a well known traveler and explorer, while “Behind the Veil at the Russian Court” is by Count Paul Vassali, and both are interesting war stories. "Across Siberia Alone” Is an incident of Russian and Chinese experiences by Mrs. John Clarence Lee, an American woman journeying to attend a wedding in the Orient. “Napoleon at Bay,” and “Napoleon’s Last Campaign in Germany,” both by F. Lorraine Petre, cover much of the terri tory which is the battle ground of today. “Men Around the Kuiser,” by Frederick William Wile, is a very readable sketch of the mental influences surrounding the German Emperor. Joseph Hepburn Parsons, • f>ne of Bir mingham’s best known and most promi nent citizens, while not writing his “His torical Papers Upon Men and Events o? Rare Interest In the Napoleonic Euoch,” especially our account of the war, comes in for a large and appreciative clientele since lil.s books cover an age and period of history made more absorbingly inter esting because of the present conditions. Many anonymous publications, includ ing “The Keystone of Empire,” being the life story of Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria, and “The Pan-Germanic Doc trine,” are quoted and referred to daily. “Lorraine,” Robert W. Chambers’ novel, has to do with the present day war sit uation and is Interesting, while from the pen of many other well known writers ♦ here appear almost weekly books touch ing upon the lamentable druma now being enacted.

Reputations of royal and republican rulers everywhere are known now, and moat of us are following with such intelli gence a3 we possess the confusing and conflicting war communications that reach the United States from myriads of sources. Under these conditions everybody wants to read b» oks that will throw light upon such subjects, for with the old torch of war flaming from hand to hand, calling men to arms, the universal mind is not calm enough to read simple love stories or to bo interested in mere comedies and courtships.

HEAR PETITION OF L. & N. Montgomery, November -(Special.) The petition of the Louisville and Nash ville Railroad company to advance the rate on coke 10 cents per ton from Yo lande to Alabama City was the only case heard by the railroad commission today. The hearing began at 10 o’clock this morning and continued throughout the day. The railroad was represented by W. A. Colston of Louisville, general attorney for the road, and N. W. Proctor of Louisville, commercial attorney. The principal opposition to the rail road's petition was entered by the Gulf States Steel company, which has plants at -Alabama City, Gadsden and other places and the Alabama company, with plants at the same places.
