We agree with the Good Gov='
ernment League that it is regret
table indeed that the campaign
has reached a stage where one
of the candidates for Governor,
and an Associate Justice-elect of
the Supreme Court of the State,
is denounced by the campaign
headquarters of another candi
date for Governor as dishonest in
his dealings with his fellow men
-charged wit h dealing in
"bucket-shop" futures, and re
fusing to pay his losses when the
game went against him; charged
with non-payment of various
debts, among them his family
grocery bill, (for which he was
placed on the "dead beat" list in
his home town;) a bill of lumber
for his $10,000 home, a bill for a
piano for his home, availing him
self of the plea of prescription
on this bill, and other items.
Where we disagree with the
Good Government people is in
their howl of protest against this
expose of their candidate, Judge
Luther E. Hall.
The Hall people brought it
It is a dose of their own med
icine at which they are gagging.
While the regular organization
was conducting one of the clean
est campaigns ever attempted to
be conducted in this State, ap
pealing to the voters for their
suffrage on the availability of
Candidate Michel, d e a I i n g
strictly with the issues of the
day, the Good Government
League was on its part conduct
ing a vile, filthy, reprehensible,
campaign of vituperation
an.d calumny, stopping at noth
ing in their wild slander of an
honored citizen of the State.
The Clarion believes that the
Michel people acted with pa
tience worthy of commendation,
and they are not to be held blam
able for bursting the bonds of
tolerance and coming back at
their detracters in kind.

"I used to be troubled with a weakness peculiar to
women," writes Mrs. Anna Jones, of Kenny, 111. "For
nearly a year, I could not walk, without holding my sides.
I tried several different doctors, but I grew worse. Finally,
our druggist advised Cardui for my complaint. I was so
thin, my weight was 115. Now, I weigh 163, and I am
never sick. I ride horseback as good as ever. I am in
fine health at 52 years."

We have thousands of such letters, and more are
arriving daily. Such earnest testimony from those who
have tried it, surely proves the great value of this vegeta
ble, tonic medicine, for women.
Cardui relieves women's sufferings, and builds weak,
women up to health and strength. If you are a woman,
give it a trial. It should help you, for it has helped a mil
lion others; It is made from pure, harmless, herb ingredi
ents, which act prImptly and surely on the womanly organs.
It is a good tonic. Try it! Your druggist sells it.
