FIGHT FOR HEALTH
What Mrs. Akers Did For Herself,
In Spite of Discouragement
Basham, Ya.?Mrs. Malinda A. Akers,
of this place, writes: "I suffered more
than six years with headache, pain in my
limbs and left side. I was not able to
stand on my feet. I suffered untold
misery at times, so that I had to call the
doctor. The doctors gave me up, and
said that no medicine would reach my
case unless I went through an operation.
On my husband's advice I began to
take the Cardui Home Treatment and
was cured. I am now enjoying splendid
health, and do all of my own housework.
Cardui has been a great benefit to me and
I would not be without it."
Once given a thorough trial, Cardui will
always remain the preferred, standard

needed to build up the weary body and
Remember, you will really be trying no
experiment. Cardui is not a new, untried
remedy. It has been in use for half a

on to point out that when the com?
mittee of the Vie Hcnreusc was voting
on her book before awarding it the

for to test its authenticity. The book

Marguerite Audoux is both worker
and genius. For it is worth while to
have put experiences Into words in
a way that has amazed Paris, even
wiille the same Marguerite Audoux

that she could not spell very well.

moment, found themselves obliged to
swim for their lives to the farther
shore. .So with "Marie-Claire." Its
absolute appearance of simplicity
serves to mask its very real shrewd?
ness in construction. Its reservations
speak more loudly than Its expressions,
and they reveal Marie-Claire as the
direct product of heredity and en?
vironment, a type of girlhood and wo?
manhood, who sees, feels and acts as
she does, because she follows out Ir?
resistible impulses engendered in her
by reason of the circumstances of her
birth and her upbringing. It is "Kis?

A Synchronic Chart of United State*
By George E. Croscup. B. A. The
Windsor Publishing Co. $1.50.
Statistical tables by the author and
chronological text by F.'rnest D. Lewis,
A. M.. add to the completeness with
which Mr. Croscup has made good his
aim of bringing American history
clearly before the eye in a single view.
The author uses an appropriate de?
scriptive phrase throughout; he calls
his work, "history made visible." "It
includes a number of American his?
torical maps and diagrams, principal
among which is the large folding chart
from which the hook takes its name.
This chart Is really a practical and in?
structive piece of work. Upon it each
important event of national history is
so set down that its relation to every
ether event, both In time and locality,
can be seen at a glance.
The relation of this country to others
and the lnfluenco of European nations
upon America are represented on va?
rious portions of the chart by differ?
ences in color, yellow indicating the.
Spanish period in early history, red
the English, and so on. The chrono?
logical order of these periods, is pre?
served by lines dividing the chart Into
centuries and quarter centuries.'
The main chapters of tho text form
a brief outline of American history in
chronological sequence .Chief events
stand out In heavy type. Minor mat?
ters are dressed in minor type. The
scholarly character and mechanical ac?
curacy of the hook otherwise, commend
it alike to educators and students.

tion of "The Married Miss Worth." tho

"The Actress" had to do chiefly with

It seems to be a. popular device of
present day novelists to Introduce a
hero and heroine who are compelled
by the testamentary vagaries of a de?

or remain In dire poverty for the rest
of their days. The possible testators
are nearly always people who have
been brought up In the most helpless

value of money.
"Tho Bolted I>oor" is a novel of this
class. The heroine. Natalie .ludson,

.Many people who are facing lite prob
lern of "the high cost of living" with!
discouragement ought to read '?One'
Way Out,"'and'llnd out how a man and
woman, living presumably near .New
V?rie and In it, retrieved their losses
and achieved independence.
This man and his wife began life
pretty much as hundreds of others do
every year. The man earned u salary
and was industrious. His wife, was
prudent and thritty and knew how to
provide for her. little family, which
Included her son, an only child, in i
way which was certainly not extrava?
But after a while hard times came.
The man lost his position and found I
difficulty in getting another. Then he
hail an inspiration. He and his family
emigrated. That is, they gave, tip their
suburban home, sold all of their fur- ]
nlture except some bare necessaries,]
and. with a little money thus obtained,
went into the city by tho emigrant way,
securing a cheap lloor in a tenement
district known as "Little Italy."
Here they were strangers, Just atoms
In tiie tolling mass of humanity. Noth
Ilng was demanded or expected of them. '
They were free to come and go as
they chose and do what they liked.
They made their rooms clean and do
I cent, doing the best they could with the
I little they had. Then the man sought
I and got a Job which gnvo him outdoor
work and paid him a modest wage.
I Ills wife took care of the task of keep?
ing the home and buying only such
food as was cheap as well as whole?
some. She held herself, her son and
husband* up to cleanly and respectable
habits of living and dressing, and res?
olutely set aside a 6mall sum each week
out of what was earned.
Tho child of the house had his school- 1
ing. The father gradually advanced as
a worker. As years passed on he be?
came a contractor, and once more was
raised above the possibility of want.
But the lessons learned in "Little Italy"
influenced all after living and thinking,
and arc set down in order to hearten
other men and women needing encour?
The book is clear, practical and full
of the fruit of observation and of the
best advice as to the science of Jiow to
make a little money go a great way.
