C. McElroy. of Clinton, Ky., "I ! was a sufferer from womanly troubles. I could not cat, and could not stand on my feet without suffering great pain. I had such awful suffering down in my right side that I could hardly bear it. My doctors said that I was in a critical condition ar.d going down hill, and I had lost all hopes of ever getting better when I began to take Caidui. Before I had taken one bottle of Cardui I felt better, and in a week's time I was better than I had been In six years. Cardui works like a charm. I think it Is the best medicine I ever used. I adi-ise all suffering women to take Cardui." Cardui is recommended to all women who are weak, out of sorts, under the weather, or suffer front the pains and ail? ments due to a weak womanly constitu? tion. It is a purely vegetable, harmless, strengthening tonic, of special power over the womanly system, and has brought health to thousands who had failed in oilier ways to find relief. Wc urge you to try Cardui for your troubles. Your druggist sells it. N. B.? Write lo Ladies' Advisory Dept., Chattanooga Medicine Co.. Chattanooga, Tehn., for Special Instructions and 64-page book.

Morgan Shuster. by l?\ aiAnacisK de fontkxoy. THAT \V. Morgan Sinister, In sptt.i of hin very friendly welcome In] England on his mum from Por sla und particularly oordlal re? ception by Sir Edward Grey, the Eng? lish Secretary of State Cr Forden Af? fairs, should have been condemned by i tho British government In the Blub I Book presented to Parliament on the; i subject of the Persian imbroglio, docs I not In any sense mean that England! I has been guilty of double dealing. Thr; I English people seem to have l>. en I protty genorally agreed that while i their agreement with Busala regar<ling IPersia had been open to severe crit? icism, yot once entered Into they had j no alternative whatsoever but to act las they did In the matter, whether 1 It was right or Just to Persia or not Tho troublo was that Morgan Shus I ter possessed more straightforward? ness than tact, and felt himself obllgtd ? to espouse the cause of a people that had already surrendered all their nat i lonal rights, and who were Indebted 1 foe th j remnants of their national ox ! ister.co to the Czar and to the. English : crown. The first troublo of Morgan Sinister arose curiously enough with the English element of the Condom? inium. But It was quickly smoothed away by Sir George Barclay, the P.rlt-| Ish minister plenipotentiary at Tehe? ran, who Is married to an I American wife. Beatrix Mary [day Chapman, daughter of Henry IG. Chapman, of N'fw York In a couplcj j 01* days overything was in working ! oider again. Encouraged by ids suc I cess, and assuming therefrom an as 'surance that he could alwajs louk for support from the English legation. Morgan Shuster next attacked the Rus? sian agent, who was a very clever man, and who alto had spent much of his life In England, having been a particu? lar friend and "bridge" partner of King Edward. His name ?ras M. Pos cjpl PoscAolskJ. Here, howevir, he ?found himaelf In a whole peck of trouble. Nothing could move the Rus? sian Minister from the attitude which he had taken up, and not even Sir Georg? Barclay's representation that Posclolskl had gone even beyond the point oorrtnilitod to him by the 3t Petersburg government would cause him to yield a single hair's breadth. Finally ar. ultimatum was presented by RusBla to Persia, and It was only when tho Russian army was actually marching into Teheran that the Per? sian government climbed down from the high position they had assumed and dismissed Morgan Shuster from the post of Treasurer-General at Te? heran, along with all the members of hts bureau, some people over here an? ticipated that the Blue Book, that la the collection of th; diplomatic and official reports about Persia to Parlia? ment, would seek to smooth over the Morgan Shuster oplsode. would laud him for hin work, and pay tribute to htm for the lasting results which it was likely to have In Psrsia. This is. however, very far from being the case. The. Mo,-gan Sh.usf.eir affair Is con? demned Just as severely by Sir Edward Grey as by the Oirman Minister of Foreign Affairs. Baron Kiderlen Waechter, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs at St. Petersburg; while the f ar Is expressed in England that Shustor's work will eventually be found lo have proved far more hurt? ful than beneittclal. True, no exception is taken to his Integrity. But it is in? sisted that for a man even of the high? est Integrity to attempt to assume the internal administration of an Ori? ental country of the rational pecu? liarities of which he Is ignorant, was the most foolhardy and reckless job ?aver undertaken, oven by an Ameri? can, whose llrst principle of f ill th Is a blind belief In his ability tp land somewhere on both feet. Baron Coels von dec Brugghen, who Is delegated by Germany to serv? as her chief representative at the inter? national congress on shipping and tr?nt portatlon matters opening on May .'3 next at Philadelphia, is the head of a very old-established Coburg fatally, tho members o? which have always preferred lo make their head quarters in the DuchlsS of Coburg aiid Gotha, rather than in Prussia or any of the larger states on the German Confederation. considering that it Is more agreeable to be a personage In a ^mal! country than a nonentity In a big one. They are persona grata al the court of Coburg, und owing to the Intimacy which prevails between Co? burg and 11 srllli on the one hand, anil Gotha and St. Petersburg on the other, it may safely be taken lor grant, ft that a kindly word from Baron Cocls con der Brugghen will prove extreme? ly effective In securing presentation at the courts of boih empires. Ii I aal! attention to this. It is because good deal has been published about the alleged trouble which the German officials contemplate making with rc gurd t'i the presentation of Americans at the court of Berlin Khedive Abba's engagement of his daughter Amlnuh to the son of the Turkish Mti shir and former Grand Vizier, Ferid Pasha, has crjated a good deal of a sensation, not because the union in question is looked upon in an> sense of the word as a mesalli? ance, but mainly because the princess is renowned as one of the loveliest piincoHscs of hct age lo be found either in Europe or 'Slsewliere, She has been both deaf and dumb from her birth. W hat adds to the seeming cruel? ty of tho affliction is that she Is a most brilliantly gifted woman. In fact she is probably the most attractive Tolls of Its superiority more forcibly than words. The voices of MILLIONS all for it at the grocery atore. Merit has made It the choice of the people. No other Baking Powder costing so little does so much. The Southern of all tho princesses of the blood now living, ae she '8 certainly alon<; among them In being deprlvod of the. uso of hearing and speech. She Is positively Idolized by her parents and by In r brothers and alaters, and among the I Egyptian people at large her affllc-1 tloji Is looked upon as a special token of holiness. It Is fortunate under the circumstances that young Kerld has an excellent rcpututipn as a ntle m.in in the best Turkish sense of the word, and that is saying no little, as those who have resided in the Otto? man Kmplr: are aware. For. If It were thought that any untoward Influi uce could be exercised upon so politically and religiously inriuenti.il a person? age as the Princess A ml nah :ho' eon? sequen es muht i>e .| iploruble, both in Turkey and In ISgypt. Fcrld Pasha, the father of the brlUogrootii-toi-bc, Is a man of about sixty, and perhaps the best proof of the sterling character of both fathir and son is that both of them enjoy in an equal degree the confidence and affection of the present Khedive and of the present Sultan, and also of tho older and more con scrvatlve part of the Turkish consti? tutional regime.
