I j dreaded to see the sun rise and I dread- i cd to sec it set, for I suffered such 1 agony- No one except myself will ever J know how badly I suffered. The doctor 1 said I was suffering as a result of the ‘ menopause. As nothing gave ine any relief, I ! asked the doctor if I hadn't better try £ Cardui. He said, ‘It might help you,' 1 and told my husband to get me a bottle. 1 At this time I was so weak I could not } lift my bead, and my voice was so weak, j people had to lean towards the bed to bear what I said. I looked so bad and had such a dark color that I looked Ilka 1 , dead woman, and my relatives thought I would never get up again. r I took one bottle of Cardui and It re- 1" lieved the pain and suffering so much 1 ^ that my husband got another bottle, and ' that improved me still more. I began u to strengthen and gradually got well. 1 v have now had better health for six years than I ever had In all my life. I f< have taken no medicine since, and my health Is perfect.

Carter, president of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Englnemen, clashed today before the arbitration board in the western railway wage cases. The trouble arose over Trenholm’s in troduction of an exhibit to show actual earnings in 1614 of what lie called •'typ ical” engineers and firemen. Carter anil W. S. Stone would not consent to the introduction until It was specifically stated that the exhibit showed only the earnings of the men named and not of engineers and firemen as a whole. "I have been engaged in an analysis of the statistical exhibits presented by the railroads,” said Carter, "and I find that they do not represent the facts. T will say Ihat If they were accepted by the hoard at their face value our case < Is already lost.” , Trenhoim arose from the witness chair , and said: “There is such a thing as insinuating Ihat t am a liar and I will not stand for T it.” I "r do not desire to call the gentleman C a liar: let us put it that somebody has t been mistaken.” said Carter. ' 1 Trenhoim continued: "Nothing has been introduced here which does not give the *' actual facts. They were honestly con- n ceived, honestly compiled and honestly t presented. These protests mean only one thing, and that is the officers of the a brotherhoods themselves did not know ° themselves how great enginemen's earn- V ings were.” s FRANCIS OUIMET l MAKES GOOD MARK " _ n Boston, February 26.—Francis Ouimet, f national amateur champion, was given a c rating today of plus 2 by the Massachu- », setts Golf association.

I gave the father a fine overcoat, sent to me by a friend, and my sister donated a nice long coat and hat for the mother. I added waists and skirt and some under wear. The little girl was provided with a good coat, bonnet and gloves. We also gave some things to the baby. So, you see, 1 will not need to use the offers you sent to me. I was in hopes to get some I looks for the boy, 9 years or age, who likes fairy laics: and«o few toys for the girl, 7 years old, but did not get any. and was not able to spend any money on them myself. I had two cheap story books for them when they came for them. 1 thank you very much for these ad dresses, all the same, and herewith re turn them, as l knowr you can pass them on to some one else w-ho ean make use Ol the things.

I have gotten into touch with Mrs. MacC., whose letter offering a gas stove you forwarded to me, and the family will get the stove today. I left them a dollar yesterday as a thank offer ing for God's supply to me. 1 shall try and get others interested, that they may have warm underwear.

EVEN HYPHENATED AMERICANS LOYAL r former British Ambassador i Discusses American Neu trality—Stars and Stripes Come First, He Says j- , London, February 26.—(7 p. m,)—Vis ount James Bryce, in an article ■which fill appear in the Daily Chronicle to- < narrow on “The Position of the United i tates in the War.” says it is “a com- t lete error to assume that those who 1 ear a German name or who own to 5 erman blood belong to the pro-German * arty.” ‘ £ “Children of Europeans born in Amer- c •a,” Viscount Bryce continues, “grow t p normal American citizens for all prac- 1 cal purposes. Their loyalty to the Stars J ad Stripes and their feeling for the land r their parents is' comparatively weak. : irhat is called the German vote is, in )me few cities, a force to be reckoned ith. But when those who lead it try > use it as a means for applying polit al pressure in such caseA as this, the* fcitive Americans resent such an attempt, >r with them it is a fundamental prln ple that citizens must have no loyalty we to the United States, and the great ilk even of hyphenated Gernmn-Amer ans would refuse to respond.” As to the neutrality of the American Jverament, Mr. Bryce adds, both sides ivo blamed it and the government points • this as the best proof of its impar ality. One party, he says, moved by* le tragic fate of Belgium, censured the rvernment for having failed to protest igainst the violation of Belgium terri fy and the flagrant breaches of the lies of warfare prescribed by The Hague invention.” j “But," says Viscount Bryce, “it is right, at neither side of the case should he it to the United States, the greatest of ‘utrals. “Add to this ground for caution the fact at the United States has always, fol wlng the advice of Washington, en ■avored to keep themselves clear of iropean entanglements.” J Regarding questions of international law id usage which have arisen betwTeen c United States and belligerents, Vis unt Bryce says: “When a neutral is urged by its citizens remonstrate with belligerents on the ercise of any rights the belligerents Urn, it cannot, unless convinced that ere is no substance in the grievance, dine to present the case of its sub ts.” ontinuing Viscount Bryce says: If it is suggested, as I think it lias en somewhere, that in the matter of ntraband and the right of search pow ful pecuniary interests have tried to fluencc the administration, those who .ve watched recent developments In nerica will agree that nothing is so popular there as what is called big siness and that any administration sup sed to bo yielding to its pressure would so at its peril. So far as I can judge, ere is no foundation for any such no >n.” , 'iscount Bryce pays high tribute to the ne.rican Red Cross, the commission for lief in Belgium and other American gunizatfons and to the people and the vernraent and its representatives for sistance rendered to noncombatants and British subjects in belligerent coun es. The administration might conceive at many questions will arise in which b rights of all the neutrals will be rolved, and It might think that the thority with which thp United States n speak would be weakened if at the tset its government takes up a posl »n adverse to one or the other party the struggle. However high the mo e, its impartiality would thereafter questioned.” Arguing that the attack ori Belgium ls a clear breach not only of the con ntion of 1907 but of the fundamental Inciples of international law, Vls unt Bryce says the breaches which lotfred rested at first on statements ilcb needed confirmation and that ly government might feel that before Resting against the treatment of ncombatants it needed further evi nce which would carry certainty to ary fair mind. p V a MAKE INCREASES IN WAR RISK BUREAU Washington, February 26.—Increases in Lhe Federal war risk bureau Insurance rates on ships and cargoes to principal English and all- German ports as a re mit of constantly Increasing dangers to shipping were announced tonight by Sec retary McAdoo.

That's a new way of expressing an Idea that has probably lurked in many a mind—at least it has in mine—and in recent books, entitled "Letters of an Old Farmer," the author, Mr. William H. Lighton, thus presents it. The man who takes joy into * ’• work, who finds contentment and pleasure In doing it, makes no complaint of hard ship; to. him there is no hardship, yet lie may be doing extremely hard work. An all-wise Creator has laid upon every human being the burden of work. It makes no vital difference to the hu |_I K4, Ole Miss, de reason dat sum folks ain’t got no use fer er Family Tree is bekase dey thinks dat Everybody ought ter Root fer deyselves. Yassum! .. man being, however, whether he iilccs his work or not. The preference for a certain kind of work is not so much a question of tem perament us of ability to do well what is undertaken. True, there are occasionally vocational leanings so strong that to oppose them spells tragedy for al! concerned. There was for instance the late be loved poet Father Tabb, wno throughout , n long life always deemed himself as "ail unreconstructed rebel.'' There is Peg O’ My Heart, who quoted the Irish folk, saying: ’’You can't make a silk ptwse out of sow’s ear,” and then added with solemn conviction: ‘‘And I’m a sow’s ear.” As a general thing youth is pliable. ’ As the twig is bent, the tree Inclines,” and people incline to that which they have been trained to do skillfully. i The creative instinct is strong in all 1 normal people to make things. First, as 1 a child, to imitate; then, us skill in- J creases, to do original work. The work disliked may be infinitely osier, according to general Judgment, than the work chosen, but somewhere 1 the hated Job galls, while the work one [ a fond of interests. In the former case, a he state of mind is one of protest, and i Ids mental rebellion makes hard work, y lardship. ‘s One vital tiling in connection with work j hat contents is that it be well done, else I t can arouse neither interest nor pleas- i ire in the worker. v First, the mind needs the commendation c of self; then It needs tlie commendation of others. Flattery In connection with work is de generating—a shame to him who utters it. and to him who accepts it. but hon est, genuine praise, that is w II deserved, never yet hurt anybody, but rather lias a stimulating effect that is . s a kindly hand lent to aid one over bard places. It helps good workers from feeling in hours of great mental or bodily weakness that their hard work is a hardship. Ask yourself when you fepl lifo setting almost too hard for you If your mind does not need the tonic of Interest and proficiency In what you are doing. Funeral services over the remains of Thomas J>uke Waldrop, aged 63 years, who died yesterday morning at 1:30 o’clock following a short illness of pneumonia, will be conducted this afternoon at 2 o’clock from the family residence at 2406 Brown avenue, Fairviow.
