"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 eat, sleep, and joke, as well as anybody. In 8 weeks, I was well. I had been an invalid for 5 weary years I Cardui relieved me, when everything else failed."

RALLY, ALWAYS RALLY. 11 the dream dies, do not falter; If the hope fades, do not mind; There's a disappointment softens, There's a grief that makes us kind; INot to trust and not to follow, That, indeed, were blind! If the dream dies, rising from it, Take new courage for the fight; There's a failure makes us mellow, Out of darkness comes the light, And the only life worth living Is, indeed, the right! If the dream dies, from its ashes Build the purpose to renew; There's a trial that makes us over, There's a loss that keeps us true, And the soul from out its sorrow, Peels, indeed, the dew. If the dream dies, build another; If the bloom fades, think of those Who wait all the livelong summer For the promise of the rose, That the frost kills, or the sunshine, Ere, indeed, it blows! THE VALUE OF OLIVE OIL. Each year scientists are learn:i-g more of the wonderful value of Oi:l. oil as a preservative of hwalth. 'hv, have been finding nec; c e for it until now it has been accieplted a, a true and valuable food. Olive ,,1. it has been discovered, is the o-wiy article of food which is at the saule(. time a medicine, a lublri:'ant, a p,1';.. ure and a fluid. The Italians are exceptional. healthy. Olive oil goes into their meat dinner, on their vegetables, in to their soup, spaghetti, "made dish es" and almost everything else tith y eat. And yet the Italian physicians did not recognize that it was this oil which was keeping the people in tuih splendid health. They were so : customed to it that it never occm:,r red to them that there might be at connection between their small fees and the large consumption of olive oil. American doctors learned it first. Then the rest of the Saxon world be ;gan to understand its value. The human mechanism is a ma chine, ceaselessly grinding out fol, but to do that easily and without fri, tion it must have oil. Now, nothing in the ordinary diet of typical Amer !can or German or English contai:ns any quantity of oil. The fat of meats, and the juice of rich gravies is not oil, while the grease of pastries and all sweets is like the gritty, unre f;ned petroleum which clogs the :ma chinery of our sewing machines ;nal motors. Intestinal trouble is almost un known to the people who use olive oil generously. Its use gives a cllear complexion, a clean, unfurred ton gue, and a bright eye. It is a diretr specific for rheumatism and for gall stones; given to children, it keeps them fat and helps them through the teething period. Old people shotild take a tablespoonful three times a day in order to avoid the stiffening of the joints and the hardening of the arteries, so common to their time of life. Olive oil is not cheap at present, but olives could be grown as easily in our Southern States as peaches, and are an infinitel: more profita ble crop, since the trees live for hutn dreds of years, and bear heavy crops each season. If olive oil were used instead of lard to fry things in half the harnm ful results of the frying pan would Ie done away with. Olive oil, warmed, and rubbed on the wrists and elbows, will make them round and dimpled. Rubbed into aching joints, it will dissipate pain. Used on the head, it will give a fine growth of hail. Rubbed on the gums twice a week will ke)p them firm and prevent the premature fall .ing out of the teeth. Olive oil should be used on lettuce, spinach, fish, fried potatoes, bcees, hard boiled eggs, asparagus, raw on ions, raw tomatoes, cabbage, raw cu cumbers, lima beans, spaghetti, bak ed beans, watercress. Finally, a salad should be plart of the dinner every day in the year, a salad generously steeped in olive oil and with but a suggestion of vinecar. When the season does not yicldl !eil tuce or romaine or watercrcss ori endive, there is "cold slaw," onions, spinach and chicory, which canl be had in even the coldest weathler. LOUISIANA'S MURDER CRO-. I f in Louisiana we attachid the same sanctity to human life as do the wicked Londoners, we should have only eight homicides per year. But how many do we really have? According to statistics compile(l by the Rev. H. S. Johns, chaplain (of the state penitentiary, there were dur ing the last four years 1,178 cascs of homicides in this state. This is an average of 294 per year, or of nearly six homicides per week. This means that on practically every work ing day of the year a new grave i has to be dug in Louisiana to receive the mortal remains of a mnurdered man. We are no worse in this respect than a score of other American states but it is no consolation to know that we have plenty of company. Indeed, the most distressing feature of the situation is the fact that the evil is so all-pervading. All right-thinking citizens need to enter upon a crusade for law and or der. American people, rich and poor, high and low, must learn to obey the law because it is the law. Especially do teachers and parents, as never before, need to inculcate in the minds of the young resp.ect for law and higher authority, for the fundamental cause of the great in crease of criminality, as has been shown in these pages before, is the fact that the youth of our country, as a class, are no longer reared in dis cipline and subordination. Thi- pres ent generation of Young Ameri.n ec- joys. a freedom of conduct ant an amount of self-indulgence never be fore allowed any children in any quar ter of the globe. The children of the well-to-do are petted and spoiled beyond redemption, while those of the poorer classes are being reared in the unwho.esome nursery of t:ihe street, or are growing up without discipline in the backwoods. While suchi conditions continue we may ex :Icct an annually increasing harvest .n turder and violence. Our census reports show that our 1cpuolation is increasing at the rrate t" 2 per rent a year. Now, if hom icides continue to increase at the an nual rate of 10 per cent, as was the 'a::e in 1912, how longwill it be he co:', the American people will disap pear ftom the earth, through a pro :.Css of ]~mutual slaughter?
