Advance: NN ill write a few linen in relation to conditions here. Crop-* are bad* ly damaged by the rev« nt beat v rains and land in badly washed ai.d damaged by the continued rains 1 he noil has about disappeared oil some hillsides. PI in shout I be a good r» a*on why land valu« n should be lowered for taxation. You see these conditions are decidedly against the hills de farmer; he can’t realize but a small return for Inn 1 »bor at best. About the county high school. " ell, it might be a good investment for some parts of the c unty. My timt impression wan to write ngi'in-i it. I’ve beard it said that your Pnst ideas are best on business mat ters, so 1 guess I will not change. Now, you see the way the land i* drifting down toward the Gulf ol Mexico, it makes it extremely diffi cult to pay even a small raise of the levy. Our farmers know this to be the cane, especi illy when the mon* ey has to be obtained by tillage ol me soil. And now 1 will write a line or two about the war. 1 am heartily in ao eord with Mr. Bryan’s views con cerning the great conflict aftd the earnest desire of the American peo ple to keep out of this great Iron, ble. We should not engage in it under ary n asonable ciroutnslanoes, and we should not take issue with ary of those troubled nations. We can be charitable to those in need and help them to some extent; hut we should not export munitions of war to any of the nations now at war nor permit any vessel fixing the U. flag to do so. It is against the laws of neutrality to suffer it to he done. In reading the papers I noticed that one firm in America had refused to make ammunition to be shipped abroad. This is right. Don’t make anything to destroy vour fillowman, unless it is ex tremely necessary; it’s against the laws of God and man and should not be done. VVe should take the views of our ancient blacksmith that re pented for making instruments of warfare, which is described by the poet. He says: ‘‘But a sudden change came over 1 his heart ere the selling of the sun, and Tuhal ('am was Hiled with piin for the evil he had done. He saw that men with rige and hate made war upon their kind ; that the hand was red with the blood they shed in their lu-t for the carnage blind. Ami be said, ‘Ala*! that 1 ever made or that skill of mine should plan the ► pear and sword lor men just thus to use to rday their fellow-man.’” J. D. Ratten. He should die young who says he has neither erred, strayed or been deceived.

Husband Came to Rescue, Catron, Ky.—In an interesting letter from this place, Mrs. Bettie Bullock writes as follows: **1 suffered for four years, with womanly troubles, and during this time, I could only sit up for a little while, and could not walk anywhere at all. At times, 1 would have severe pains In my left side. The doctor was called In, and his treat ment relieved me for a while, but I was soon confined to my bed again. After that, nothing seemed to do me any good. I had gotten so weak I could not stand, and I gave up in despair. At last, my husband got me a bottle o! Cardui, the woman’s tonic, and I com menced taking it. From the very first dose, I could tell it was helping me. I can now walk two miles without its tiring me, and am doing all my work.'* If you are all run down from womanly troubles, don’t give up in despair. Try Cardui, the woman’s tonic. It has helped more than a million women, In its 50 years of continuous success, and should surely help you, too. Your druggist has sold Cardui for years. He knows what it will do. Ask him.
