HER HAPPINESS CHEAPLY BOUGHT Only a Few Dollars Was the Price | This Georgia Lady Paid For Relief From Sickness, Trouble and Worry. Macon. Ga.?"I never knew what hap? piness was," writes Mrs. C. F. Asper, of this place, "for I was always sick and complaining, and made myself unhappy and others as well. All is different now. And when 1 think about it, this change to happiness wasn't so hard to accomplish, after all, and only cost mc the price of a few bottles of Car dui, the woman's tonic. For eight years I suffered with female troubles of the most awful kind. At times I thought I would go crazy, and I was very weak. But since I have been taking Cardui I feel as well as I ever did in my life. Cardui surely cured mc, and I shall never tire of singing its praise. I am so thankful for what it has done for mc." All women suffer at times from pain and weakness, and, as a result, are unhappy. If you are a woman you need at such times what nil women need, a tonic? Cardui, the woman's tonic. Cardui acts on the cause of the trouble. By so doing it helps to make you well. Take Cardui for health and happiness. You will never regret it. X. B.?

And w -11 was I rewarded for my trouble. For as soon as 1 had onco more found the artl'le so adequately headed "Ty rolese Hoys and Girls for Hale!" I saw In plain minion type the follow'ng s.-ntence: This was the day of the yearly market . . . 125 boys and SO gins between the ages of eleven and six? teen, who hid arrived that morning in a special steamer, under tile care of a roman Catholic priest"?(hor? rors!) "wvre huddled In front of the Golden Wheel Inn waiting to be sold to the highest bidder'.-' I once more stared Into empty space, trying with all my might to recall the smallest instance of auch pure savagery which might have occurred during my own frequent stays in those charming regions. Hut this occupation seemed so \ain that I wearily returned to the worthy correspondent's descriptions, and catching the words "the demand this year being so much greater than the supply, farmers had to otter as much as 1- pounds I'J shillings for sturdy boys." 1 began to gasp! "Cattle market?feeling of the biceps ?and offers made to that terrible Roman Catholic priest," slid beneath my naze without arresting it, unj i regret to say that all at once 1 In? dulged in one- long guffaw 1 l'oor priest?though "Roman!" Toor little mountaineers?though Tyrolesc. The joke was on that correspond' nt ? I knew it now. lie had not inquired light. Why should he when so great a sensation could be had for "nothing at all'.' ''Tyrolesc Boys and Girls for Sale.' ?that is what may be called a headline worth printing, when one can cull It on the way to one's headquart? ers at Vienna?the gayest "little" cap? ital in this mnanful universe of ours. To b.- fpiite truthful, had he directed Ills voyage in the neighborhood of French, Italian, Spanish or German mountain lands, the nationality of those "abused and maltreated white slaves'' would have been the only thing to change. For, as a matter of fact, the youths born on the slopes of European mountain chains arc hired by the year, or half year to farmers; Since up aloft, as one might say, there Is not enough for them to do, especially during certain seasons. Not only children, but whole bands of adults, with brilliantly tinted ribbons hanging from their hats, and willi long staves, berlbboncd also, in their hands, go to seek work in the plains, where the farmers carefully inspect them and make their choice, offering this and that price, according to the promise of muscle and brawn. Hut these are no slaves. No more are the children or youths that so greatly shocked our good British "Special Cor? respondent from Vienna." Nor are they bought and slid at so much per head, as he somewhat rashly believed. Peace be therefore to his Imaginative ashes! This special correspondent should have remembered that it is neither ?ufv nor wise to pass Judgment upon und condemn any community without a thorough Investigation, and an understanding of the customs and the lunguage ot the people criticised, liven so perfect and irreproachable a capital as that or the British fcJmpiro has suffered in the same way as the pretty little village of Frlcdrichshavsh. Some years ago, a new Russian am? bassador, on arriving In London, took a carriage at Hie railroad station, In order to be conveyed to his embassy; Naturally he was very much Interested lu the traffic of tha streets through which he was driven. In the people he saw walking there, and In the shops and stores. "But 1 was Intensely shocked and 'horrified," sai.i he after? wards, "to see. In bold letters, the word 'Nursery.' Can It be possible, I thought, that so civilized a nation as the English can be so cruel and Uli- ; natural as to hand their children over, to strangers who make a business of i rearing them?" Hut this amiable ami! kind-hearted Russian ambassador did' not write to his home papers. lie j made inquiries, and laughed heartily at his amusing misconception of the occupation of the respectable trades man who ran the nursery fur (lowers. 1 remember, too, the case of a very | successful hunter of crocodiles, the secret of whose Success was long ' sought. Horrible rumors began to h ? circulated, it was state.l tnat he used live children for bait. Could anything be more frightful? Now those who! have lived for any time In Egypt a ml India must have noticed the contempt and disregard of til) boys slid girls for these big saurians. The creatures swim ami tloat Just under w.u. r. and the children will paddle and splash within a few yards of u twelve-footer, laughing and running up the hunk when the reptlls shows a disposition to make a closer acquaintance. Near the big villages and the t ?vns the alli? gators seem to know that it is a waste of effort on their part lo attempt to settee a small specimen of the human species. I recall that when I was now to the countrv my blood would run cold and my hair almost stand mi end nt the terrible risks the Egyptian youngsters seemed to be taking. But when 1 found out thai nothing v. r happened, I ceased to worry. Now the alligators in the most deserted reaches of the Nile or the Ganges nie not so sophisticated, and the sound uf the human voice rouses expectations of a in sslble meal, and moreover, being In. oxperlenced regarding; the nlmblencss if lh.- young bipeds of the land, leave the water In clumsy pursuit. It was the practice of the "mighty hunter" I have referred to to pay a small boy a handsome gratuity?a very liberal ?mo. in the child's estimation?to sit on the bank, chattering and tinging, while th.- hunter, gun In hau.I. st.1 close by on watch. No sooner would a. reptile leave the water and begin to waddle up the bank than the deadly rill,- would hurl:, and tlio marksman would have another crocodile "bllggJtl.'' The "halt" meanwhile would in- re? garding the affair as a huge, delightful Joke. Nut until the matter was fillly explained could tin- hunter relievo himself of the charge of infanticide. So. on the whole, it is always better to withhold one's verdict until fully Informed of the merits of a case.
