" I have for years heard good things of your Wine of Cardui, but never really loiew how excellent a remedy it is; until last fall when! became sud denly chilled when 1 was out and not clad warm enough. Unfortunately it happened at a time when every woman should use extra^ precaution acainst colds;: As a consequence the functions of Nature. stopped; ami afthouch I thought little of it at the time I soon found that it was umcli more serious than I had anticipated. I did not seek medical assistarice until over a month had passed and I had found no relief. I had terriblo cramps and pains, intense backache and dizzy spells. The doctor said in flammation had set in and prescribed for me., But nothing seemed to help me Reading your Almanac I soon became interested in A\ me of Cardui. I then remembered -bearing some of ? iny lady friends telling how grand it was. I then dismissed my doctor and decided to tryWme of Cardui. I took it for three weeks and to my great joy. 1 found relief. Gradualhr the inflammation passed away. I became once more regular^ and suffered no more pains, whatever. LI am sure there are hundreds of women who are daily suffering as I did, who do not know which way to turn tor relief. To these Iwould say: "Stop paying doctors' bills and taking medicine you know nothing of; stop letting the doctors experiment on you. Half of them don't know what really ails their patients. Stop wasting your strength and your money and take Wine of Cardui. After you have taken one bottle of Wine of Carduiyou will feel so much better and you are sure to be cured if human skill can cure. It is cheap to make the experiment any how and take my word for it, "you will not regret it" I am glad to give you this unsolicited testimonial, glad to do my little to show my appre ciation and only hope it may be the means of advising some poor suffer ing women, and may help them from daily, misery to health and happiness.. SO delicately poised are the or gans of womanhood that even Sight neglect and exposure result in serious trouble. Few women regard first menstrual irregularities serious enough to require medical attention. ; Consequently from little irregularities serious troubles grow. Women are usually too modest to tell these troubles to a doctor. Wine of Cardui can be taken in the privacy of your home.

Thurs ton, in this city, and it was expected. Mr. Wise said, - that the former Nebraska senator would be present, but he is not in the city, and it is not known when he will be " here. The absence of Senator Thurston prevented anything of a definite nature being decided upon. The confer ence discussed in a desultory sort of way the" feeling of some of the Virginia Re publicans as: to testing the new Consti tution in the United States courts, or rather Supreme Court, and other proposed methods. ■': There are no indications that the Vir ginia Republican organization is interest ed in any proposed contest. Those who do want to make a test are merely skir mishing for support and backing, and at the same time trying . to find out if any lawyer of prominence is willing to make a contest with a hope o£ success.

In the court very little was done. Tha grand jury brought in a true bill against Tom Burrell, colored, charged with high way robbery. This negro met an OiU Confederate by' the name of Hudson, on the road, some time ago, and took from him. a few dollars. The case was set for hearing* at the next term of the. court. . .Many fine young horses are at the fair ground stables, ready for the races of our yearly county fair, which begins on Wednesday. A balloon ascension; baseball, pigeon shooting, and a potato. race will be some of the attractions. A mule race, hereto fore one of the most interesting features, is set for the last day, Friday. H.
