scribes How She Suffered and
How She Got Relief.
Vandervoort, Ark.?Mrs. Dora Garrett, I
of this place, says: "I suffered every
month for a year, and got weaker every
day. My head and back would ache so
bad I could not sit up. I tried all kinds
of medicines, and they all failed to cure
me. Then my mother told, me to take
Cardui. When I had taken one bottle I
was able to do all of my work. I, can
recommend Cardui to be the greatest
woman's remedy in the world. I have
used it and know what it will do."
When a woman is ill, the real trouble is i
generally some derangement of her con?
stitution, and the headache and backache,
etc., are merely symptoms of her womanly
weakness. The proper treatment, there?
fore, is Cardui, the woman's tonic. No
other medicine, or tonic, has exactly the
same results as Cardui. No other has
the record of so many years of successful
use in cases of womanly ailments.
If Mrs. Garrett had taken Cardui sooner
she might have been spared the long
sickness and much suffering. A few doses
i of Cardui at the right time will often
save serious suffering and prevent a long |
sickness. Don't delay. Begin to take
Cardui at once.

RETURN OF T?FTS
EAGERLY AWAITED
[Special to The Times-Dispatch.]
Washington, October 14.?Washing?
ton, to-day the quietest place on tho
political map, will see an entire change
before the coming month Is many duys
old. November Is the time when the
capital city rouses from Its slumber
shakes off Its hot weather sluggishness
and begins a general house cleaning
for the next six or eight months. The
knobs to the big front door are polish?
ed up. and everything Is put to rights,
because that Is the time when the
White House takes on its winter habits,
and it will be away along in summer
again before another period of quietude
comes. j
Naturally all political and social life!
devolves around the White House in
Washington. There the future politi?
cal career of many a man is made or
marred, and likewise there many a
bouncing belle from the backwoods get.^,
her first peep Into real big society.
If it Is difficult to get the ear of
the President, politically, it Is equally
as hard sometimes to get near the
While House along social paths, but
there are many Just now who will
eagerly watch for the homecoming of
Mr. and Mrs. Taft, the former from his
long swing around the country, and the
latter from her home at Beverly. They
will be In Washington on th,e first of
November, and right then will begin
one of the brightest and most attrac?
tive *va?ons In Washington's social
history.
When the President rubs the dust
from his desk when lie gets beck from
his Western trip and digs down Into
the pile of business, which has accum?
ulated since he left, he will find a plen?
ty to occupy his time for many months
to come. There are scores and scores of
place to be filled, ranging all the way
from judges and district nttorney3
and commissioners of various kinds
down to the tilling of small' postmas
tershops at many cross-road towns.
Important Vacancies to Fill,
?ne of the best commisslonerships
which the President will be culled
upon to fill will be that held by the
late Senator Carter as a member of
the joint high commission to Investi?
gate und report upon the waterway
und boundary rights between the
United States and Canada. Last year,
when the former Montana Senator
went down in the landslide which
shoojc the country from end to end
and terminated the congressional
career of many Congressmen, Presi?
dent Taft thought It would be a nice
thing to give Carter a good, soft place
with little to do and with a fat salary
at the end. So the Montana man was
landed In the commissioner's place and
held it until ho died, a short time ago.
Now it will be up to the President to
name a successor to Senator Cnrter,
and there are already a number of
men In the field for it.
Another thing the President will
have to do will be to name one or two
commissioners to the Panama Expo?
sition to be held In San Francisco. For
several months a former member of
the House from Virginia has been
camping around the White House,
using all possible Influence, In the
hope of landing this place. Thero
will be excellent remuneration in It
and not a great deal of labor, with
the added advantngo of being in a
position of taking advantage of any
business opportunities which might
arise. Therefore, Mr. Taft will have
to decldo among several candidates
when he comes back which . he will
name.
Thesj matters, with the. hundreds
of smaller ones which must have" at?
tention at the White House from day
to day, will well fill the President's
time for many months when he shakes
the dust of his long trip upon his re?
turn to Washington early next month.
He has covered many thousands of
miles .slnco ho went Wont. Meantime
a vast pile of business has accu?
mulated, ? H. MtO.

county seat of Westmoreland, It being
the first day of the fall term of the
Circuit. Court. Two handsome ;busts,
one of Thomas Jefferson, the other of
Chief Justice John Marshall, will bo

belonging to Thomas Jefferson Cool

liver the presentation speech, a.nd it
will be accepted by the Hon. William
Mayo, chairman of the Board of Su?

which is a copy of one In Boston
Athenaeum, will be presented by B.
W. Pomeroy, ;and will be accepted by
Wlllinm Dabney Wirt, a grandson of
William Wirt, and a member of the
Westmorelnnd bar. These busts come
from the studio of Caproni, In Boston,
and are real works of art. The wulls
of Westmoreland Courthouse nre filled
with the portraits of the greut men
that this ancient county has produced,
and the courtroom Is now to be en?
riched iby the busts of these two great
Virginians, who, though not born in

His Honor Judge Wright, who many
