She Knew From Experience Just
What Wat Needed. Describes
One Remarkable Case.
"Watonga, Okla.?Mrs. Ida Bollinger
of this town, makes the following interesting
statements for publication:
"I Buffered for 20 years, with womanly
troubles, and In this time, tried
several different treatments, but got
no better.
i nnaiiy got hold of a Lndles' Birthday
Almanac, and road about Cardul,
the woman's tonic.
I had not taken very much of It, bofore
I was entirely well.
I do some nursing, and have given
Cardul, the womnn's tonic, to lots of
women, with good results.
I use this medicine a great deal In
treating young girls. A young girl
came to my house one day last summer.
She had taken cold at the wrong
time, and was in a terrible condition.
I went to the druggist, bought her a
bottle of Cardul, and the third dose
she took did the work.
8he Is now entirely well.
You may use my name In any way
you deBlre, as 1 am anxious to do anything
I can to help suffering women."
For more than 50 years, Cardul has
been In widely extended use, by women
of all ages, and has given perfect
satisfaction, as a remedy for helping
rebuild womanly strength and health.
Try Cardul yourself. It will help
you. Your druggist sellB It.

Woman Once Accused of Crime
Is Shunned by Her
^Twenty Years Ago She Was Charged
With the Murder of Her Parents,
and Although Acquitted She Seems
Compelled to Live Alone, Except
for tho Companionship of Her Servants.
years ago Lizzie Borden, accused
of the murder of her father and
her stepmother, stood up in the
court room at New Bedford and heard
\ a Jury of her peers pronounce the verdict
of acquittal?heard them < ??''
to all the world that one was "not
guilty" of two of the most brutal and
atrocious murders that e^er .shocked
the country.
Today that same Lizzie Borden
lives a recluse, as damned by public
opinion and as ostracized by former
friends and enepiies alike as If that
same Jury had pronounced the one
word "Guilty." *' '
Lizzie Borden still lives In Fall
River, but as far as Fall River is
concerned, Lizzie Borden is an outcast,
an Ishmael, a social pariah. Her
name Is uttered with contempt, and
over her friends and relatives who
comforted her during the months of
her imprisonment and througout the
ordeal of her trial have long since
ceased their visits. Today her nearest
neighbors pass her by without a nod
or sign of recognition, writes Gertrude
Stevenson In the Boston Herald.
Twelve Jurymen found Lizzie Borden
guiltless. Nevertheless, she has
been punished and persecuted as no
other Innocent woman In history. She
has lived to know the tragedy of a
> verdict of acquittal. She has come
to realize that Andrew J. Jennings,
her counsel and friend, was a true
prophot when. In addressing Judge
! Blalsdell at her preliminary trial he
i declared:
"Don't, your honor, don't put the
Btlgma of guilt upon this woman,
reared as she has been and with a
pasi cnaracter beyond reproach. Don't
lot It go out in the world as the decision
of a Just judge that Bhe is
probably guilty."
Murder Still Unavenged.
After 20 years, when the deaths of
Andrew J. Horden and his wife are
still unavenged?when the double
tragody still heads the list of New
England's unsolved murder mysteries
| ?with Lizzie Borden banished from
society, shunned by all who were once
near and dear to her, the words of
Andrew J. Jennings may well be remembered
as an example of masterly
and farslghted prophecy.
After 20 years, Lizzie Horden llvos
as shut ofT from the world as if she
were behind prison bars?condemned
to solitude by barriers stronger than
any prison wall could be?less tangible
but a hundred times more effective
than any bars of iron?the silent.
Inexorable censure of her fellow men
and women.
This woman, who for two decades
has maintained the silence of a
Sphinx, who has never asked for
mercy, never pleaded to be understood,
never by any word or sign expressed
indignation at the treatment
accorded her by the people of Pall
Itiver, lives in the great silent home
she purchased with her share of her
murdered father's half million, know
fng no huinnn companionship nave
that which sho can hire?no frlehdships
except those of occasional
strangers who turn a cold shoulder
upon her advances when they find
that she Is the Lizzie Horden once
tried for murder?no affection save
that of the dumb beasts with which
she has surrounded herself now that
human attachments are denied her.
When Lizzie Borden was acquitted
It was commonly believed that she
would soon shake the dust of Fall |
River from her feet, and that under '
an assumed name she would try to '
live down the accusation that had i
been made against her?that in new
places and among new people she
would attempt to And new Interests
and new pleasures.
Bought House In Home City.
But Lizzie Borden apparently never
contemplated such n procedure. As
soon as the affairs of her father's
estato were adjusted, she proceeded
1 to purchase a handsome mansion in
i the exclusive "hill Bectlon" of Fall
I River?the very neighborhood she
nuu lonK ann rumeiy inea to induce
her father to enter.
To all intents and purposes the
: woman planned to live among her
. frienda nnd acquaintances, just aa aho
had always lived, continuing to at!
tend the same fashionable Congregational
churcfc, entertaining and being
entertained, only now she had the added
advantage of several hundred
thousands of dollars in her own right.
She had her horses and carriages, the
beautiful clothes she had always
longed for and jvhlch the thrift of her
father and his second wife had previously
denied her. Apparently, aside
from the shadow of tho tragic deaths
of her father and stepmother over
her life, everything that heart or
mind could desire was Lizzie I Jordan'a

' Porth of Lizzie Borden'i
and power that the possession of a
large amount of money cannot fall to
give Lizzie Itorden read the writing
on the wall. It was then she first began
to feel the pressure of public opinion?that
she first realized that former
cordial greetings were growing colder
and more cold?that friends who once
would stop for a chat or drop In for
an Informal visit passed her by with
scant nods and averted eyes?that she
came to understand the treihendous
force of unexpressed criticism?that
the conviction came home to her than
which no earthly situation 1b more
crushing or more annihilating?that
she was being shunned by every human
being, with an occasional rare
exception, who had formerly made up
her life and happiness. It was all the
more terrifying because It was so Indefinable.
There was no tangible finger
of scorn?no open declaration of
hostility?Just that Insistent, maddening,
universal aloofness.
vrvro mourning.
Sho was criticised becnuse she did
not wear mourning for her parents.
Her every going In and coming out
was discussed, and all manner and
kind of construction placed upon every
ordinary, unimportant detail of her
mode of living and acting. Some
thought she drove her horses too rapIdly
and recklesr.y down the main
street. Some r.verrod that she had
never shown the proper grief ever
her father's death. Others insisted
that she was making altogether too
sudden and too blatant display of the
money that had como to her with the
murder of her father. She could do
nothing right. If she tried to be happy
and forget the awful Bhadow that had
come Into her lifo her critics called
her heartless. If she appeared ou the
streets In a sober, subdued frame of
mind there were all sorts of gosBlpInge
and predictions and clackings of
tongues?such an attitude could mean
but one thing to their minds!
So the years wont on, one after another
of her friends dropping away
from her, until today Lizzie Tlorden,
looking for all the world like any
other stout, matronly woman you
might meet on the street. Is without
a doubt the most isolated free woman
In New England.
Seems Without Emotion.
Sho Is today Just what she was described
as being when she faced trial
iui iii*i me iwemy yours ago?a stolid,
immobile, unemotional appearing woman?her
large, Btrong features expressing
the same determination that
characterised her when Bho faced her
accusers on the charge of parricide.
If this woman has over had an emotion
It can honestly be said that she
has invariably succeeded in couceallng
It from any human eye.
She.goes about today Just as she
went her way, flrm-mouthed, directeyed
and baffling of understanding during
the days following the discovery
of the mutilated bodies of her father
and her stepmother, during the Inquest
that resulted in her arrest, day
after day during the preliminary trial,
at the end of which Judge Blalsdell
found her probably guilty?throughout
the grand Jury hearing when twenty
out of twenty-one grand Jurymen voted
to Indict her?all during the eight
months of her confinement In Taunton
Jail while she waited the sitting of the
superior court and during the long
hours of her thirteen days' trial by
Jury which ended in her acquittal and
Months Without a Visitor.
Not in fifteen years has Lizzie Borden
attended the church where up to

meetings of the Christian Endeavor,

church socials and gatherings. Not In
years has she entered any store or
shop in the city where she was born
nnd spent her girlhood and young
womnnhood as the younger daughter
of ono of the city's richest and most
respected business men. Not to the
knowledge of anyone has she engaged
in any charity for the past ten years.
Months pass by without a human
foot crossing her threshold other than
those of merials and tradespeople. A
visitor at the Borden door Is such a
rare and curious sight as to occasion
comment throughout the neighborhood.

"What about Lizzie Borden?"
Lizzie Borden comes and goes about
the city and in and out of it, unquestioning
and unquestioned. A few
years ago she discarded her carriage
and handsome pair for tho finest
limousine that money could buy. Secure
from observation in its richly
upholstered Interior, she drives about
the city at dusk or goes to and from
the trains and takes trips around the
surrounding country. All her shopping
is done out of town. She is a
frequent visitor in Boston, where she
makes her home at the Bellovue, registering
as "Lisbeth Borden." although

the hotel attaches.

year, on the anniversary of the
crimes, the Fall River Globe prints a
vigorous article in regard to the murders,
the perpetrator and the fact that
the crimes remain an unavenged blot

pointed so strongly and so openly at
one and only one person as to invite
suits for criminal libel, but if the
woman ever sees them or hears of
them, she has made no sign.

wants no John the Baptist, with hie
