although Iber.' were men anxious to
pla.-e bets that nobody could defeat the
veteran mayor.
Mr. Warren ha1 not long h*on a
resident of Bristol. The fact that ha
received stich a larg? plurality was
due In r>Brt to the fact that he had ,
the hearty co-operation of members of ,

Big S.mdy, Tenn.?"I had to suffer
iseven (7) long, dreary years," writes Mrs.
Lucy Cantrcll, of this place.
"Every two weeks I had to stay in bed
! several days, and no words can describe
j my misery on these occasions.
Womanly trouble was the cause of it. ?
I My poor husband had paid out more ?
j than one hundred dollars for other mcdi

I Cardui.
I Five bottles helped me.
j I think Cardui is the best medicine for
women on earth, and if my statement
I will do anything to help some other suf?
fering woman you can publish it."
Many ladies write to this effect, feeling j
ih.it by so doing they will help other suf?
fering women to get well by following their j
experience. To you, among others, this
message is sent.
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.

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.

BOARD TO SELECT
PLACE OF MEETING
Dallas, Tex.. 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. The plon
Is to give the board of directors pow
er to name the place of holding the
convention each year, jnd to avoid
contests by different cities before the
general convention. It also is the sense
of the officers of the association that
entertainment at convention cities
shall be limited to the evening. In or?
der that the days rrray be given to
work. z
The standardization of requirements
for admission into advertising clubs
affiliated with the assoc'atlon and of the
requirements for that affiliation were
also discussed. The sentimentprevalled
that only bona fide advertising men,
buyers and sellers of advertising,
should be eliclble to membership. 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. Baltimore and Toronto
are the contending cities for tho lfilU
convention. That decision and election
[ of officers will be made Thursday,
j Six conferences, each devoted to a
discussion of an important advertis?
ing subject, were hold during the
morning session to-day, and in the
afternoon the delegates assembled In
general Convention to discuss, as a
whole, all of the questions considered
in the conft rence.
To-night the presidents reception
was held, more than I.OOo persons at?
tending. To-morrow the advertising
men will be the guests of Fort Worth,
thirty miles distant, where a program
Of entertainment has been provided.
Special trains will return the crowd
to Dallas Wednesday night.
The final sessions will be held
Thursday, and Friday morning the
visitors will start upon <a circle tour
of Texas.
