"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 week, after I gave Cardui a trial, I could cat, sleep, and joke, as well as anybody. In 8 weeks, I was well. I had been an invalid for 5 weary years ! Cardui relieved me, when everything else failed."

Baton Rouge Country Review: While political economists and Tar iff builders, from Jefferson to . the time when Oscar Underwood became chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, have agreed that sugar is the ideal revenue-producer, yet it is evident that in any scheme of tariff revision contemplating a general re duction of tariff duties, sugar will be called upon to bear its real share of the reduction. A blind man ought to be able to see that; hence, a pru dent sagacity would suggest that in. stead of butting their heads against a stone wall, endeavoring to prevent any reduction whatsoever, the rep resentatives of that industry, ought to stand ready to assist in the can fection of a tariff carrying out the policy of the new administration of a reasonable reduction all along the line. To oppose a reasonable reduc tion would seem to be to invite frte sugar. The suggestion is wisely and timely made by the Country Re view that sugar men should recog ni2e the fact that the tariff on the sweet staple is bound to come up for revision when other articles feel the knife, hence, it is the part of wisdom to yield to the inevitable, and in so doing secure better treatment than by active opposition. The arrogance of Louisiana's na tional committeeman must make the Democrats feel cheap, who thought 4 his Aswellian brand of democracy the almon-pure kind. TRESPASS NOTICES.
