C.-Mrs. Abba ;:1nil I::.nmpton, of this place, says ,that about 12 years ago she began to take Cardui after having been in failing health for 12 years, during which time she had to take to her bed four days out of each month, and suffered agonies; that the doc tors told she must have female trouble and gave her medicine which did her no good and finally iinsisted on her going to the hos pitable for treatment. xShe goes on to say: "I am a large woman, and my ordinary weight, 160 pounds, went down to 'it5. I got so bad I just dragged a~round and could scarcely sit up. ?y neighbors all thought I was go ipg to die and would say I couldn't live long. My little daughter -thought the same. My husband and friends urged llme to try Cardui, and he bought some of it. I began feeling better as soon as I began taking it, and I s4adily improved until I was well and strong. I make my garden, do my housework and have cooked for 20 boarders at one time. Am a strong, healthy woman, permanent ly cured by Cardui. ry husband and I can't say enougl for Cardui. The people in three cinties know what this medicine his done for' me, for neither I nor my husband ever cease praising it." Cardui is for sale at all druggists with full directions for use.

Through the media of his long list of celebrated stage successes, Mr. Bernard has made ' hundreds of thousands laugh. With the wider latitude of the screen, I- millions will now be enabled to fol it low his side-splitting antics and his inimitable methods of comedy )' portrayal. The subject selected for ui Mr. Bernard's introduction to the F; motion picture public, "Poor 19 "3 Schnma!tz," presents him in the hi- P° is larious role of a German wig makert in who becomes the principal agent in - a series of excruciatingly comic ad- fa ) ventures, and it is certain that th n, this characterization will rank with w , the popular star's greatest comedy of '1, creations and be recorded as one of ot I- the foremost travesty triumphs of tii id the screen.

K. EASTHAM One of St. Landry's Representa tives. t. One of the best races made in wh( the recent primary, was that of Mr. qUit Eastham. Four months ago, when abl he began 'his campaign, he was fOU practically unknown outside of e Opelousas, his home. This is ac r counted for by the fact that his business, timber and cross-ties, takes him in the woods, rather than the country and towns. Further he has been here but elevetn years, being a native of Kentucky, and has no relatives in the parish to help him, his little family being all school ohillren as yet. But by an active campaign, the iY ability to make a rattling and logi r- cal talk and an engaging personal u- ity, he rolled up 1716 votes and was 1 of an easy winner, carrying one poll, P- tieing two others for first place, J, a strong 2nd in 8, including Opelou- i ns sas and Washington, and 3rd man in ten others, losing therefore but four polls out of twenty-five. , The friends of Mr. Eastham, who Is comparatively a young man, 35 1o- years of age, predict for him in the .r- coming session of the Legislature a c- record of sane and successful ie- achievement. ost :-- : PUBLIC MEETING TO DISCUSS ORGANIZATION OF PIG CLUB Ige _ ith President Littell, of the Fair Asso en, eliation, Calls Public Meeting ol- for Feb. 19th his dy A .public meeting will be held for under the auspices of the St. Landry the Farmers Fair Association -on 'Feb. or 19th at the court house, for the bi- purpose of organizing pig and can er 1 ing clubs. in President 4l.

J. m Thompson. The pupils assembled Sat 2:30 P. M. to go in a body to the cemetery as a token of respect to the deceased superintendent. The au- school used thid means to express ime its deep and 'heartfelt smpathy to . C. the deceased's family. The Opelousas basket ball team ( went to St. Martinville Saturday, Feb. 5th, to play that team. We - e are very proud to state that the Opelousas girls were victorious, the score being 39 toi8. The local girls g were royally treated during their short stay, a dance being given inI their honor Saturday night. L The O. H. S. Champions will play the Sout'hern Louisiana Institute this coming Saturday. This will pro Sbably be the most interesting and Smost important game of the season, as the Southwestern naturally has a teamn of much higher standard than a high school team. It will, therefore, be a great hionor for the Opelousas girls, if they should win. There are two more pupils in the n. eight grade,making a total of 67. some of the teachers had to divide the class so as to do justice to such large number. Thle Senior Class held a meeting Monday for the purpose of arrang 02 ing a program for the next meeting Sof the literary society. Some of the teachers and pupils are going to motor over to Lafay ette Thursday to hear Skovgarde, the great Danish musician. ...... - - ---- --:o. - indos Mrs. C.
