"Two months ago I started using Duf- i fy's I'urc Mall Whiskey, and I owe my life t<> its use. It has built up my weak- j cued system and prevents sour or sick j stomach. It- gives me the most, natural ? appetite I have had in my life, and since j I began using it I have gained 12 pounds; j over one pound a week.

About 100 corporations which have' not paid their fees to the Stale for the years 1909 and 1910 will to-day receive little notes of reminder from tho State Corporation Commission. Note the di? plomatic ihr.ru .?:. used by Clerk R. T. j Wilson In this delicate matter: "The commission Is unwilling to al- j low the charter of your corporation to be forfeited without calling your attention to the fact that fail? ure to pay the fees for the years 1909 and 1910 will, on May 31. 1911, operate without further proceedings as a revocation and unnulment of the charter." The amounts due by these concerns] vary In accordance with the capital stock, the minimum being $15.75. This Includes the registration fee for three >ears and the penalty. Five per cent, penalty Is assessed for failure to pay these assessments before- March 1 of the year for which assessment Is made, with 0 per cent. Interest on the fran? chise tax, and on the penalty from that date to May 31, 1911. Settlement must be made by bank draft or aertlfled check payable to the Treasurer of Virginia. This applies both to concerns chartered In Virginia and to those foreign corporations which have procured certificates of authority to do business In this State. THE REAL FACTS ABOUT MRS.

I can't tell how I did suffer. "At last 1 began to take Cardul. and I hadn't taken but half a bottle until r began to Improve. "I continued to take It until 1 had taken four bottles, and now I am In very good health and able to do all my house, work." Tou may wonder why this medicine. Is so successful In cuTlng sick women, after other medicines have failed. The answer 1b not far to seek. Cardul is successful because it Is composed of Ingredients that act spe? cifically on the womanly constitution. It Is not a cure-all. It is a medicine for women, und only for women. Its success is due to Its merit. Try it. K. B.?Write to Indies' Advisory Dept.. Chattanooga Medicine Co.. Chat? tanooga.
