For there are days when you, too, need | a strengthening medicine, a tonic. Nobody knows when those days come so well as you. When they do come, don't go around hopelessly with a feeling as if everything were wrong, but do as others have done. Just take a dose or two of Cardui. Try it next time. X. B.? Write to Ladies' Advisory Dept., Chattanooga Medicine Co., Chattanooga, Tcnn., for Special Instructions and 64-page book, "Home Treatment for Women," sent in plain wrapper on request There is Room in Richmond?and there is public need?for just one Water Supply System. Do YOU think for one moment that the City Council would or should per? mit any corporation to set up a rival water works and occupy the streets with miles of mains and pipe lines in order to sell water to the citizens in competition with the City Plant? "Oh, hut," you say. "water is a necessity of life, and is therefore the one public utility above all others which the City should own and operate and maintain as a natural monopoly.-' Very well. It happens that the City owns and operates the GAS WORKS?the only iia< Works for which there is cither room or public need in Richmond. Is it possible that the City Council would grant a franchise to any corporation to engage in the g^s business in competition with the City Plant? There is room and there is public need for ONLY ONE SYSTEM for supplying Electric Eight and Pow er to the people of Richmond. Electricity ha-- become a necessity to the progress and prosperity of the modern city?a necessity of civic life, if not of individual lite. Whether it be a municipal department or a private corporation, the in? strumentality that supplies the public with water, or gas. or electric light and power does not merely deal in a commodity, hut does perform a public service. The providing of Electric Service is just as much an affair of co? operation as the providing of water or gas service. Public service in any of these things cannot be established or maintained without the public's co-operation. As public utilities, water, gas and electricity are in exactly the same class. And it is a fundamental and axiomatic, principe, of the whole class that ONE SOURCE OF SUPPLY AND ONE DISTRIBUTION SYS? TEM FOR EACH UTILITY (whether water, or gas, or clectricitv) MEANS THE REST SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY AND A MINI? MUM COST TO THE CONSUMER. . That principle is not affected in the slightest degree by the fact that Electric Service is provided in Richmond by the Virginia Railway and Power Company. The service so provided is efficient ami excellent, and the rates charged tor this service arc exception all)- low. No man can honestly deny that. To permit competition in Electric Service for Light and Power here in Richmond, would be just as WRONG TO THE PUBLLC?just as much AGAINST THE PUBLIC INTEREST AND THE PUBLIC WEL? FARE?as to permit the establishment of rival gas and water works to dupli? cate services rendered by the City. That is the most important consideration for YOU and for YOUR representatives in the City Council in the matter of the application that has been made to that body for an electric light and power franchise. There's more to tell you about this. Watch for it in to-morrow's paper. Virginia Railway and Power Company.

May 21_The officers' conference of the Associated Advertis? ing- Clubs of America to-day developed a strong sentiment to adopt rules be? fore this convention adjourns, which will end struggles at future gatherings for the next convention city.

A commission will be ?appointed to make an Investigation and report on local advertising conditions jail over the jlJnlted States, according to action tak? en to-day. I San Francisco.
