Hines, Ala. "I must confess", says
Mrs. Eula Mae Reid, of this place, "thai
Cardui, the woman's tonic, has done me
a great deal of good. .
Before I commenced using Cardui, I
would spit up everything I ate. I had a
tired, sleepy feeling all the time, and was
irregular. I coula hardly drag around,
and would have severe headaches con
tinuously. Since taking Cardui, I have entirely
quit spitting up what 1 eat. Everything
seems to digest all right, and I have
gained 10 pounds in weight"
If you are a victim of any of the numer
ous ills so common to your sex, it is
wrong to suffer.
For half a century, Cardui has been re
lieving just such ills, as is proven by the
thousands of letters, similar to the above,
which pour into our , office, year by year.
Cardui is successful because it is com
posed of ingredients which act specifically
on the womanly constitution, and helps
build the weakened organs back to health
ana sirengin.
Cardui has helped others, and will help
you, too. Get a bottle today. You

Miss Binkley A Heroine.
Miss Gertrude Binkley, of Fulton,
teacher at Bennet Schoolhouse, three
and one-half miles northeast of Fulton,
is the heroine of an accident which
occurred Saturday night during a Christ
mas entertainment given by the pupils
in the interest of the school.
A large crowd was present and a dra
ma was being presented. Eldredge
Hastings was supposed to fire a blank
cartridge at Bessie Provow. He fired
all right, a .32 Smith & Wesson pistol,
but instead of a blank someone had
blundered, and it carried a ball. The
missile struck Miss Binkley in the calf
of a lower limb and ranged upward and
imbedded itself in the flesh. The-boy
was reclining on the floor when he fired
and the ball ranged upward. Miss Bink-
ly made no outcry and went ahead un
til the play was finished, when she came
near fainting from the pain. . She was
brought home and Dr. R. N. White
head called. He has not yet removed
the bullet. The wound is not consid
ered dangerous.
Miss Binkley, when asked why she
did not give the alarm, said that the
people had paid their money and she
did not want to spoil the play and break
up the entertainment. Fulton Leader.
