j
Pitiful State in Which Mrs. May
Found. Herself, and How
She Escaped
Opp, Ala.?In a letter from this
1 town, Mtb. Carrie May writes as fol
? lows: "About two months after I ma
' rled I began to have very bad weak
i spells, and terrible headaches. I felt
j miserable all the time, and soon got
; to where I couldn't hardly stay up.
i After the third month I got down
completely.
I was young, had never been sick
before, and I just didn't know what
to do. I thought I would die.
My husband, at last, got me a bot
| tie of Cardui, the woman's tonic, and
it helped me so he got another bottle.
When I had taken the second bottle
I was well.
I wish that every woman, suffering
from womanly trouble, would give
Cardui a trial. It is the best medi
cine on earth for womanly weak
ness."
Are you weak, tired, worn-out? Do
yot\ suffer from any of the pains pe
culiar to weak women? If so, take
Cardui.
As a remedy for women's ills Car
dui has been most successful. It is
\ purely vegetable, composed of ingre
l dients which have been found to build
up the vitality and strengthen the
womanly constitution, as well as pre
vent or relieve those terrible pains
from which weak women suffer.
Cardui i's worth trying. Judging
from the experience of a million other
women who have beon benefited by
this remedy, it should surely do you
good.

Chicago Official's Campaign for
Fewer Auto Fatalities
Shows Results.
Chicago, September S.?Coroner
Hoffmann's campaign to remedy con
ditions which have been responsible
for 110 persons being killed by auto
mobiles In this city this year, already
is meeting with results. Despite the
fact that Sunday was fair and warm,
ajid 'housaaids of a-utomoblleg sped
over the boulevards, the casualty list
was the lightest of any Sabbath dur
ing the summer. Only four persons
were injured and none seriously.
The coroner asserted he believed pe
destrians were more careful in cross
ing the streets, and that automobilists
were showing more regard for the
rights of those who walk.
The personnel of his "safety first
council" of twenty-four representa
tives of citizens wa<? announced to
day. The committee is expected to
supervise and educate out of the in
creasing number of local automobile
owners carelessness and the mania for
high speed.

j making way for tne Kaiser's only son
in-law, young Duke Ernest Augustus
of Brunswick, whose marriage to
Princess Victoria L.outse of Prussia,
took place at Uerlln in the presence
of the Czar of Russia and or King
George of Great Britain, with much
pomp and ceremony last spring.
It was asserted at the time that the j
bridegroom was destined to take f/os
session of the throne of the sovereign J
duchy of Brunswick ere long, his rattier,
Duke Ernest of Brunswick, more gen- i
erally known as the Duke of Cum
berland, and former Crown Prince or j
Hanover, having surrendered his own j
rights to the crown to his only sur- |
' viving son. The Duke or Cumberland
has been de jure, though not de fact<T.
sovereign of Brunswick by right or
inheritance ever since the death or
the late Duko William of Brunswick
in 188-1, but was not permitted by the
confederation of sovereign states com
prised In the German empire to take
possession of his throne, owing to his
refusal to renounce his rights to his
father's kingdom of Hanover, which
j since the war of 1S66 has been con
verted into a province of Prussia. He
was pledged by a deathbed oath to his
father not to abandon his rights to
Hanover.
His son, young Duke Ernest Augus
tus, was bound by no such promise, and,
having given his official recognition
to the German empire as now consti
tuted, that is to say, with Hanover as
a Prussian province, and having more
over married a Prussian princess,
namelv, the Kaiser's daughter, and
having given the oath exacted of all
Prussian officers, when he accepted the
commission of captain of the Prussian
Hussar Regiment in which he Is now
serving at Rathenow, there Is no rea
son any longer to prevent him Trom
assuming the reins of government
of the duchy of Brunswick.
The Kaiser laid stress upon this
eventuality when in his speech at the
wedding breakfast at Berlin last
spring, he reminded his new son-in
law and his daughter of the heavy
responsibilities that awaited them in
the near future as guardians of the
destinies and of the welfare of a peo
ple.
General Francois de Ncgrler, who
died suddenly last week at Hammer
fest, during a Scandinavian tour on
board tho steamship King Harold, was
the most picturesque figure of tho
German army, especially slnco the de
mise of General tho Marquis de Galll
fet. The character of tho man Is
shown by his duel with General Andre
about a couple of years aftor the lat
ter had been ousted from his post of
Minister of War.
The combat took plaeo In the garden
of Prince Murat's great mansion in
the Park Monceau, in Paris. At the
word of command. General Andre fired
and missed, but General de Negrier
declined to return the fire, handed his
pistol back to his seconds, telling them
to take care of it, since it was still
loaded, and then, turning his bacK
squarely on his adversary, left the so
called Held of honor without the cus
tomary ?econcillation.
The reason for Ue Negrier's refusal
to lire, after having duly exposed him
self to the shot of his adversary, was
the profound contempt which he felt
for Andre, and which was shared by
almost every other wearer of epau
lettes in the French army and navy.
Me had publicly denounced Andre as
a liar, and therefore felt It necessary
to accept his cartel and to submit to
his fire, but would not honor him by
returning tho fire.
The twenty-third Earl of Crawford
acted in a similar fashion when called
'upon to give satisfaction to Benedict
Arnold. George 111. had Introduced
the earl to Arnold at St. James's Pal
ace. Crawford, who had received
thirteen American bullets through his
coat at the battle of Tlconderoga, re
marked, "Alit the traitor!" and put his
hand behind his back. Arnold chal
lenged him thereupon to a duel, and
the encounter took place. Arnold fired
and missed. Lord Crawford, who "had
refrained from firing, thereupon walk
ed away.
"Why don't you fire?" cried out Ar
nold.
"At you1" exclaimed Lord Crawford
over his shoulder. "No, sir! I leave you
to the hangman!"
Aa in the ca?e of Do Galllfet. there
are so many stories about Do Negrior
that it is dillcult to know where to
begin anil how much to tell. He came
of a family of soldiers. His grand
father secured the Cross of the Legion
of Honor from the hands of the First
Napoleon, on the battlefield of Fried
land, where at the age of only twenty
three he also received promotion to
the rank of colonel. He was badly
wounded at Waterloo, and killed In the
revolution of 1R4S. The father of the
Francois de Negrier who has just died
was that General de Negrier who car
ried the cemetery of Solferlno, at the
battle of Magenta, at the point of the
bayonet, in IS59.
Francois de Negrier was the captain
of a line regiment when the war with
Germany broke out, and was wounded
at the head of his company in the bat
tle of St. Privat. He was still in hos
pital when Metz surrendered, and a
few days later ho made his escape.

SHOE DEALERS ARE
RIGHT IN THE LINE
Fashion Show Will Demonstrate
That Richmond Is Best Shoe
Market on Map.
The reta.il shoe dealers, of which
there are many hi Richmond, are go
ing to be very much to the front in
the days of Fashion Show week, be
ginning September 23 and continuing
to and through September 26.
H. Carl Boschen, who has a twenti
eth century retail shoe house on Broad
Street, is the chairman of the shoe
men's committee of the Retail Mer
chants' Association, and in his official
capacity he is looking after the shoe
end of the big exposition. When called
upon yesterday the chairman was dis
posed 'to be a little reticent, and it
was hard to pump any information out
of him. It Anally developed, however,
that the retail shoe dealers have been
reading up about the efforts of the
dry goods men and the clothiers and
the millenery people, and getting post
ed about the movement whereby each
class of retailers Is trying to get at
the top of the ladder in the Fashion
Show business. The shoe men are not
saying much, but all the same they
are doing a lot of thinking and a whole
lot of work. All that could be got
ten from Mr. Boschen yesterday was
an admission that the shoe people are
going*to spring a surprise on the other
classes for Fashion Show week, and
if they do not put up a better and more
elaborate show than many of their
brethren In 'the retail world they will
be mightily disappointed.
next Slioen on lOnrtb.
They are reticent as to their plans,
because, as one of them expressed it:
"if the other fellows find out what we
have up our sleeves they may rob us
of some of our best features, and
out-do us at our own game."
One thing leaked out, however. The
snoe men, perhaps more than any
other class of retailors, have suffered
from that unexplahiable disposition
on the part of some people to believe
they can do be'ttcr for themselves In
another market or bigger markets to
the north of us. "It would surprise
you," said a shoe dealer to the news
paper man yesterday, "to know the
number of Richmond people who have
their foot measures In shoe houses to
the north of Richmond, and this la
because of an old fogy Idea that they
can do better, get better fitted and get
shoes cheaper away from home than
at home. We^are going to take ad
vantage of Fashion Show week to
knock this Idea into a cocked hat if
we can."
From Information gathered here and
there, it was learned that tho leading
feature of the shoe men's displays
during the Fashion Show week will be
along thia line, and they will come
mighty near to convincing all Rich
mond people and all Virginia people
that they can buy shoes in Richmond
to greater advantage -than ;in tmy
market to the north or to the east or
toward anywhere else.
Just what efforts arc going to be
put forward to make greater displays
and put forth more novel ideas than
any other class of retailers remains to
be seen, but the shoe dealers have put
their heads together, and they are
plotting against the natives in a way
that will make tho jewelers and the
dry goods people and the millenery
stores and the hardware and furni
ture folks and all the balance of the
retailers sit up and take notice when
Fashion Show week comes, and even
before then. Tho shoe men are liuet
ling to make Fashion Show week a big
ger thing for Richmond than State
Fair week.
