gently, yet surely, on the weakened womanly organs
and helps build them back to strength and health’

ailing women in its past half century of wonderful
success, and it will do the same for you

for women. Before I began to take Cardui, 1 was
so weak and nervous, anti had such awful dizzy
spells and a poor appetite. Now I feel as well and
as strong as 1 ever did, and can eat most anything ”

MARVEL OF AIR PHOTOGRAPHY
Austrian Engineer Has Overcome Ot>
stacles Which Have Proved Puzzle
to the Scientists.
By the novel process known as
“aero-photography” with the new
apparatus due to the Austrian engi
neer Scheimpflug, some wonderful
results in this field have been secured.
; It has long been desired to use the
1 camera to take bird's-eye views of
! the ground when sailing at some
height in a balloon, but up to the
! present this has not been of much
I practical use in making photographic
maps.
The problem is solved in a most
ingenious way by the inventor, who J
uses a number of separate cameras !
pointing all around the ground.
But as the photographs are all on
the usual square plates, it is impos
sible to match them for the map,
and, besides, all but one of the views
are taken obliquely to the ground—
only the central view is a straight
down view, and the rest are unsuit
able for a map.
However, by the use of another
instrument known as “perspecto
graph,” he takes the usual plate and
makes from it a corrected plate, and
this enables all the plates to be
matched into a single large map.
SHORTENED TO PET NAME
Pickaninny Had Been Given Peculiar
Christian Nomenclature In Honor
of Rockefeller.
The train stopped at the little
Georgia town and the tourist saun
tered out to the observation plat
form.
‘‘Rather likely pickaninny you
have there, uncle,” remarked the
j traveler, good humoredly. ‘‘Xamed
(ieorge Washington ?”
“No, sail,” laughed the colored
man on the baggage truck. “Dat
child’s name am Retro.”
‘‘Retro? Why, that’s a queer
sounding name for a pickaninny.”
“Might seem a little queeh to you,
sail, but Massa Rockefeller was down
heah some time ago an gib me a
quahtah for totin’ his grip. All
named de pickaninny in his liouah, ,
sah.”
“But Rockefeller’s first name is
John.”
“Yeas, sah, but yo’ see dis chile’s j!
full name am Petroleum, en we calls 1
him Retro for short.”
PRACTICAL HELP.
General Superintendent DeBer
nardi of the Missouri Pacific, who
rose to that position from a job as
section boss, looked out of a window
of his private car at Osage City dur
ing a conference with a delegation
ot business men and saw' three rag
ged children playing along the track
and munching drv bread. Taking a
handful of apples and bananas
from the buffet, he beckoned to
them, “Can I take it to marnma?
She's sick,” asked a boy in the group.
He ran toward a house where the
blinds were drawn. “George,” said
the general superintendent to the
chef, “is there any chicken in the
ice box ?” “Yes, sah,” answered
George. “Just take it to the house
across the way. There’s a woman
sick there,” he ordered.
LOOK OUT EDGAR, TOM, GEORGE!

“Can I touch you for a tenner,

“No. I’m saving up for an over
coat against the touch of winter.”
