"I suffered, during girlhood, from womanly weakness," writes Mrs. Mollie Navy, of Walnut, N. C. "At last, I was almost bed-ridden, and had to give up. We had three doctors. All the time, I was getting worse. I had bad spells, that lasted from 7 to 28 days. In one wcek, after I gave Cardui a trial, I could eat, sleep, and joke, as well as anybody. In 8 weeks, I was well. I had been an invalid for 5 weary years l Cardui relieved me, when everything else failed."

China's age-long war to suppress : the use of opium made hopeful ad vance with the Agreement of May, : 1911, under, which Great Britain bound herself to restrict the opium imports from India into China, with a view to their entire suppression by 1917, : provided China bound herself to re strict, and finally extinguish by ,he same date, the cultivation of opium in her own territory, to the end that she *should: not simply replace a for eign with a domestic trade. With the disordered local conditions inci dent to the establishment of the Re public following hard upon the Brit ish-Chinese Agreement, the control . of the planting of opium has probably not been as complete in certain sec tions of China as the government has intended that it should be; but the Chinese and the foreign missionaries 1o in China claim that the cultivation of ar; opium has already been reduced to Wa insignificance, and they bitterly com- Ar plain of the amount of opium which DE has been sent into China during the H past season, under the Agreement. NE -The Public, Chicago. B Di The attempt to embarrass the adl- P ministration of Gov. Hall through :he HI Dock Board received a severe set- Bi back Monday when Judges Skinner and Parker in the Civil District Court 19 of New Orleans, held with the Gov'- C( ernor upon every contention in the ar suits brought by the Attorney-gener- Ri al, at the Governor's instance, to B; oust the former members of the H Board of Commissioners of the Port H of New Orleans. The judgment in N both of the cases, that brought S] against W. A. Kernaghan and that B; brought against Adoliph Dumser, are Si as prayed for, and although the opin- H ions of the two judges would indicate w that they had reached the same con- B clusion by slightly varying trend of Sg thought, both opinions are to the ef- R fect that it was never the intention M of the Legislature to create a life of- B flee, and that the Governor has the right of removal. f li William Adler, of New Orleans, d tonviciled of violating the banking 0o laws, has had his sentence commut- fc ed by President Taft from six years t eighteen months. By additional al lowance for good behavior he will be freed some time in April. At least Mr. Taft cannot be accused of doing f this for campaign purposes. f Jos. H. Gomillu testified in the h Teutonia Bank wrecking case that e ht had expected his company to real i- ize $500,000 from working the Felici g ana gravel pit. This pit is in West s Feliciana. AN AMERICAN PANTHEON. N. O. Picayune: d There is a Senate bill before Con gress proposing that $2,000,000 shall be e appropriated to build at thl na t tional capital a memorial to Abra aham Lincoln, and that the monument shall take the form of a great puu lic hall. d Hitherto, monumental memorials to k reat men in every age have taken :Le form of mountainous piles u,, tt.one or pillars towering to Lhe skles, but in the present instance something practical is suggested. 'he f New York Tribune, remarking on :he lack of a ,great public hall i, of Washington,mentions that when Pres e ident McKinley died the state fun of eral w,.; held in the rotunda of ihe I- Capitol, but its size is inadequate, its 3, lighting ,ad, and it is entirely una 2e dapted to such ceremonies. k- The United States should have in 1., Washington a structure for important Id meetings and ceremonies. It should P- be a building with all the dignity of tya great Roman basilica or Goth'e d, church large enough to hold several d tlr;ousand persons, impressive enough k for the most solemn occasion. In ad l; d:tion to a:n auditorium it might well n- contain rooms where an internation d- al conference could be held and quar k ters where national guests could be ts suitably lodged. There an inaugura ne tion acddress could be delivered, ,. nd state reception given, a national horo's body lie in state, a public fun eral be held. It might be for Wash rd ington whatr "the great hall of Wil liam Rufus" is to London or ;ne Pantheon is to Paris. "If a man write a book, preach a better sermon or make a better baa ket than his neighbor, though he built a house in the woods, the world Swill make a beaten path to his door." "On the same principle that babies are hatched in incubators, says J. B. Hall, head of the Hall Cotton Recla t mation Co., of Philadelphia, can cot ton be hatched in the space of a few hours. The bolls will be harvest nur ed while immature in the boills and placed in a shed, where chemicals will be applied, and in the space of on a few hours the bolls will be open ed by the process with fully matur ats. ed bolls and fiber ready for ginning. efit The stalks may then be used for manufacturing purposes, and the 'f ground soon cleared for other crops." f TOMBSTONES Alex.
