Garrett, of Vanderroort, De scribes How She Suffered and How She Got Relief. Vandervoort, Ark.—Mrs. Dora Gar rett. of this place, says: "I suffered every month, for a year, and got weaker every day. My head and back would ache so bad, I could not sit up. 1 tried all kinds of medicines, and they all failed to cure me. Then my mother told me to take Cardui. When I had taken one bottle, I was able to «to all of my work. I can recommend Cardui to be the greatest woman's remedy in the world. I have used it and know what it will do." When a woman is ill, the real trou ble is generally some derangement of her constitution, and the headache, and backache, etc., are merely symp toms of her womanly weakness. The proper treatment, therefore, is Cardui. the woman's tonic. No other medi cine, or tonic, has exactly the same results as Cardui. No other has the record of so many years of successful use in cases of womanly ailments. ! If Mrs. Oarrett had taken Cardui sooner, she might have been spared the long sickness and much suffering. A few doses of Cardui at the right time will often save serious suffering and prevent a long sickness. Don't delay. Begin to take Cardui at once. H.

The other night I was standing Inside the railroad station when an Irish cab driver came up to me and asked me how soon the next train came in. I told him and he said thank you and went away. In about five minutes he came back with the same question. 'I told you not more than five minutes ago,' I said. 'I know it,' he answered cheerfully, 'but it's not me th't wants to know this time. It's a friend of mine outside th't has to watch his horses and can't come in an' ask yez himself!'"—Young's Magazine. Too Late to Change.

New Orleans.—The Texas and Pa cific railroad intends this year to make an active campaign to attract homeseekers to Louisiana. This announcement was made by Geo. D. Hunter, new general passen ger agent of the Texan and Pacific, Mr. Hunter, who has his headquar ters in Dallas, arrived this week on his first trip of inspection. He was accompanied by i. M. Griffin, assist ant general freight agent, who also has his headquarters at Dallas. "I have not yet become familiar with all the advantages that home seekers can find in the farm lands that lie along the Texas and Pacific, but I know that they are fertile, as Louisiana is in general. Homeseek ers' excursions are now being run, and successfully, too, but we hope to make them still more so this season." Mr. Hunter said that no further changes were contemplated in the local offices of the passenger depart ment, or changes in the service. "We have made some improvements in the service, he added, "and we are going to continue to do so." Cane Prostrated. Abbeville.—The recent heavy rains and strong winds have operated against the cane crop. The cane is heavy, and the wet, soggy condition of the land is unfit to support the stalks, and most of the crop is on the ground. The continued rains for the last four weeks have kept cane in a green condition, and where it is bad ly blown down there is great danger of it sprouting rapidly. The Leon Godchaux Company, Limited, was ready to receive cane October 16, but owing to the heavy rainfall shippers could not even get into the field. The weather ha6 cleared now, but most shippers are disposed to wait a few days until the roads dry up rather than cut them up by hauling and ren der them unfit for travel later. Gen eral cane delivery will not begin until October 23. Eddy in •hreveport Jail. Shreveport.—Accompanied by Dep uty Sheriff W. J. Griffin of Seattle, Wash., Norman Eddy, alias "Red" Smith, charged with the murder of George Hanson, committed nearly five years ago, arrived Friday. His ar rest resulted from a reported confes sion at a State convict camp by Willie Brown, son of a police juror of Pointe Coupee parish, who claimed to have been an accessory. Sheriff Flournoy refuses to allow anyone to visi(S the prisoner, but Deputy Griffith reports that Eddy, upon being arrest ed in Seattle, stated that he was not even acquainted with Willie Brown, though admitting that he was in Shreveport when Hanson was slain. Grand Jury Report. Shreveport.—The grand jury having made a partial report, returned twen ty-seven indictments, including one against George Kary, a negro farmer, who slew J. Smith, a w hite man, claim ing the unwritten law. No bill has been returned yet against Sam Clark, a negro, arrested and smuggled to Alexandria a few nights ago on the charge of attacking Miss Florence Ashford with intent to ravish. Al though the young lady said Clark fit ted the description and she consider ed him her assailant, she did not posi tively declare that he was the negro, and the jury on that account is going slowly in its investigations. Prominent Planter Injured. Alexandria.—R. Y. Hathorn, aged 50 years, one of the most prominent planters in Rapides parish, was se verely injured by getting his right arm caught in a belt at his cotton gin at Richland. He was pulled and thrown around the shaft before the machinery could be stopped, and his arm broken in several places. He was also bruised about the body. Watchman and Negro Mix. Raceland.—Ed Powers, night watch man at the plant of the Bowie dumber Company, at Bowie, is nursing a sore arm, and Frank Dickson, a negro, night pumper at the same place, is behind the prison bars at Thibodaux, Caillet Elected Police Juror. Luling.—The election for police jury for the Second Ward of St. Charles parish passed off quietly this week. A. V. Caillet, the nominee, poll ed 41 votes. For Old Crime. St. Martinville.—Paul Brascourt, E .lias Paul Cormier, a negro, charged as accessory in the murder of Mrs. Mary Robertson and her daughter. Belle, twenty years ago, went to trial this week in the district court. Grand Louis and Roy Chambers, negroes, were convicted of this crime many years ago. The former was hanged, while Chambers, who was a yardboy at the Robertson home, is serving a life term in the penitentiary. Brascourt was captured last May in Oklahoma. He is alleged to have also murdered an aged Jewish merchant named Simon at this place five years before the Robertson murders. Simon was choked to death in his home in an effort to extort money. After the merchant's murder, Bras court fled to Oklahoma, an# five years later returned. Shortly: afterwards Mrs. Robertson and her daughter were stabbed to death in their home while asleep. It was supposed that the two negro women kept a large amodnt of cash concealed in their house. The negro Louis went to the gallows protesting his innocence to the last. The cases of Louis and Chambers weer both affirmed by the supreme court. New Orleans Sugar. New Orleans.—The local sugar market was steady Saturday. The new crop attracted considerable at tention and all supplies were quickly absorbed at prices ranging from 5%c to 61-4 c on yellow clarified, while all other grades were about unchanged. The marketing of the new crop shows a steady increase from day to day, and a much heavier movement is predicted for next week, as the majority of the mills will then be in operation. One lot of 16 bags of raw sugar arrived from Lockport to be delivered to re finers. The latest advices from the sugar belt were to the effect that the weather was clear and cool, which will be of big benefit in ripening the cane. Napoleonville reported that mills have begun grinding. Parish Votes Down Road Tax. Crowley.—The road tax election to vote on a 2 1 /2-mill tax for five years was lost by a vote of 83 to 109, and a property vote of $120,376 to $355,833. The reason for the failure of the tax to pass is that property owners de mand the commission system of dis bursing the funds, which has been tried successfully in tljis parish. The police jury will be asked to name a commission and to call another elec tion. Shreveport Bond Election. Shreveport.—By a popular vote of 2 to 1 and a property assessment of nearly 4 to 1, the taxpayers over whelmingly defeated the proposition of the Municipal Ownership League to issue $310,000 worth of bonds for the purpose of building a municipal light ing plant. The proposition to issue $50,000 of bonds for extension of the fire department carried with little op position. Glnner Seriously Injured. Alexandria.—R. Y. Hathern, aged 50 years, one of the oldest and most prominent planters in Rapides parish, was severely injured by getting his right arm caught in a belt at his cot ton gin at Richland. He was pulled and thrown around the shaft before the machinery could be stopped, and his arm was broken in several places. He was also badly bruised about the body. Bulgarians Are Prosperous. Alexandria.—Leon Dewaele, acting consul of Belgium, arrived from New Orleans and visited the farms of his countrymen in this vicinity for the purpose of ascertaining their condi tion. He reports finding all Belgian colonists in prosperous circumstances and received flattering reports from ail of them. Natural Gas to Mansfield. Shreveport.—Capitalized at $100,000, the Mansfield Gas Company, which has as primary object the piping of natural gas to the town of Mansfield from the Naborton field, has been or ganized here, with H. L. Heilprin, president: S. L. Herold, vice presi dent: W. B. McCormick, treasurer, and Wheeler Shropshire, secretary. Editor Steldley Ended Life.

A company playing "Hamlet" was forced to find an actor to play the Second Gravedigger on account of the illness of the second comedian ot the company. The only actor available was a variety performer, who had no reverence for Shakespeare and no re spect for the traditions of the classic drama. The Second Gravedigger was a comedy part, .and he knew that ho could "get away with It." When the First Gravedigger threw off the first waistcoat, revealing an other underneath, the audience tit tered. The removal of the second waistcoat brought a loud laugh, and the third produced a roar. The First Gravedigger was delighted. He had never played to such an appreciative audience, and visions of good notices in the papers and a possible increase in salary began to loom up before his eyes. As he threw off the fourth waistcoat he turned partly around, and the cause of the unusual hit was disclosed to him. The Second Gravedigger, being ac customed to build laughs on lines and business of other actors, saw his op portunity and seized it. As fast as the First Gravedigger would throw the waistcoats on the ground, the variety comedian would pick them up and put them on. The new business was much funnier to the audience than the old. with wheh it was thor oughly familiar. Not content with having stolen the iaughs from the régular i omedlan in this scene, the new man went fur ther. . WMeil-tHi Fir#* «cavedigger said to him, "Go, get thee to Yaugh an; fetch me a stoup of liquor" (to which there is no reply in the text), the assistant sexton replied: "Yaughan told me to tell you tint you couldn't have any more liquor from him til you paid for the last you got."—The Bookman.

One sort of diet may make a person despondent, depressed and blue and a change to the kind of food the body demands will change the whole thing. A young woman from Phila. says: "For several years I kept in a run down, miserable sort of condition, was depressed and apprehensive of trouble. I lost flesh in a distressing way and seemed in a perpetual sort of dreamy nightmare. No one serious disease showed, but the 'all-over' sickness was enough. "Finally, betWeen the doctor and fa ther, I was put on Grape-Nuts and cream, as it was decided I must have a nourishing food that the body could make use of. "The wonderful change that came over me was not, like Jonah's gourd, the growth of a single night, yet it came with a rapidity that astonished me. "During the first week I gained in weight, my spirits improved, and the world began to look brighter and more worth while. "And this has continued steadily, till now, after the use of Grape-Nuts for only a few weeks, I am perfectly well, feel splendidly, take a lively interest in everything, and am a changed person in every way."

Nature has bone little to dry up the field since the postpone ment. Following a collision between a pas senger train and a freight engine in the railroad yards at Marshall, Texas, Friday, the passenger engine, which had been abandoned by the engineer, running backward, collided with a passenger train at the station, result lug in one death and the injury of fif teen persons. E. August Kahn, white man, was stabbed three times in the region of the heart late Friday afternoon in a grocery store at Blodgett, a point on Main street at the city limits of Hous ton, and died within ten minutes. Lee Jones, a blacksmith, residing in the neighborhood, drove in his buggy to the police station shortly after the killing and surrendered. Out of eleven talesmen who sat in the jury box at the McNamara murder trial at the opening of court Saturday at Los Angeles, only six were left when court adjourned until Monday. Of these six, however, it is considered more than possible that two or per haps three will find themselves on the jury as it is sworn in. Those having been passed for cause by both sides were: Seaborn Manning, ranch er; F. D. Green, orange grower; Rob ert F. Bain, carpenter. According to reliable information which has been obtained at Dallas, the Wichita Falls system of railroads, which was built and owned by J. A. Kemp and Frank Kell of that city, has been sold to the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad Company.

Railroad Commissioner Williams, who has devoted much time and at tention to the New Orleans cotton rate situation, says that the amended tariffs filed with the interstate com merce commission by the Texas rail roads do not cancel out the 52 ^c ex port rate on cotton from Texas com mon points, as the roads agreed to do at the special hearing before the com mission in September, but merely withdraw the rebate provision of the tariffs.

J ust previous to the arrival of Presi dent Taft's special at Santa Barbara, G'al., Monday, thirty-six sticks of dyna mite were found under a viaduct a few miles north of that point. The supreme court awarded a writ of mandamus to Attorney General Lightfoot Wednesday, but failed to de cide any of the important issues in volved in the case. As a result fur ther court proceedings will be neces sary, either in the near future or a year hence, in order to have a test of the governor's veto.

The full text of a joint dispatch sent by Admirals Jui-Chang and Sah Chen-Ping, in command of the war ships off Hankow, is published in the Chinese papers, showing that there has been a sudden and inexplicable relaxation of the censorship. The dis patch says: "As the second install ment of the Tien Tsin troops arrived at the river station they were attack ed by from 2,000 to 3,000 rebels. Gen eral Piao led the troops from Hunan, Hupeth and Honan, killing 200 to 300 rebels. They also captured six big were killed." The apparent inability of the Mexi can government to capture Emilione Zapata or to .put down his insurrec tion leads to the belief that the paci fication of the south will remain for Francisco I. Madero when he assumes the presidency next month. Eggs are selling at 20 cents each j in Guaymas, Mexico, and other foods are corresponding higher, according to delayed mail advices which reached Tucson Monday. The high price of eggs is caused by the drowning of many hens in the recent flood and because of damage to the transporta tion facilities. Twelve thousand additional men are to be enlisted in the rural serv ice in Mexico, according to General Villusenor, inspector general of rurales, who is in Ciudad Juarez from Mexico City. The new enlistments will consist of forty corps of 300 men each. The declaration of Said Pasha, the grand vizier, in the chamber of depu ties at Constantinople, that he would devote himself to effectively guaran teeing the honor and integrity of the Ottoman empire, is considered in dip lomatic circles to justify the idea that it Is impossible to find a basis of un derstanding between Turkey in her present state of mind and Italy, w hose ; views are diametrically opposed, and ■ that Said Pasha will be forced to j adopt a policy of resistance or re- j rign. As viewed at Shanghai the Chinese who are now openly identified with neither the loyalists or the revolu tionists appear to be hesitating, but are certain to follow the majority when they feel sure of the probable outcome. Everything depends upon the result of the first few battles. The object of the rebels is to lure the imperial troops south and then bring about an uprising in North China. The German battleship Hessen was rammed Friday by the Norwegian steamer Argo. The damage to the battleship was very slight. The steamer's bow was crushed in, hut she returned to Kiel unaided. Cuautîa, M ex., is menaced by Ernil lano Zapata, rebel leader, who, ac cording to dispatches which have come through to the capital, has sent a demand that the federal troops evac uate the town and retire to avoid a conflict within the limits of that city, which the" rebel chief declares would result in the destruction of the town. The Italians are reported to have suffered a serious reverse outside Tripoli. Rcconuoitering, they ad vanced too far from their base and came in contact with the Turks, who gave battle and forced the Italians to retreat, leaving 200 dead.

When a young girl I sprained my ankle three different times, paying little or no attention to it, when five years ago a small spot showed upon my left ankle. I was worried and sent for a doctor. He said it was eczema. He drew a small hone from the ankle about the size oFamMœaM arolr an inch long. The small hole grev to about the size of an apple, and the eczema spread to the knee. The doe tors never could heal the hole in the ankle. The whole foot ran water all the time.
