" I was not able to dj anything for nearly six months' writes Mrs. Laura Bratcher, of this place, "and was down in bed for three months. 1 cannot tell you how I suffered with my head, and with nervousness and womanly troubles. Our family doctor told my husband he could not do me any good, and he had to give it up. We tried another doctor, but he did not help me. At last, my mother advised me to take Cardui, the woman's tonic. 1 thought it was no use for 1 was nearly dead and nothing seemed to do me any good. But 1 took eleven bottles, and now 1 am able to do all of my work and my own washing. 1 think Cardui is the best medicine In the world. My weight has increased, and 1 look the picture of heaJth. " If you suffer from any of the ailments peculiar to women, get a bottle of Cardui today. Delay is dangerous.

Brandeis, ' a native of Louisville and a brother of Alfred Brandeis, of Louisville, was appoint ed by President Wilson to succeed Justice Lamar on the Supreme bench. The choice was a surprise to the Senate. Of late Mr. Brandeis, who lives in Boston, has devoted much time to the Zionist movement. It was the first time a Jew ever had been named for the Supreme Court. A detachment of United States marines has been sent to the flooded Otay Valley, in California, to check looting. United States cavalry are patroling Coronado Strand and turn ing back people from the flooded dis trict. The Morena dam, guarding one unit of the San Diego water sys tem, is reported have broken. Twen ty bodies have been recovered in Hickman, with levees collapsed, 1,500 people homeless and appealing for Government and State aid, is but one of many cities and districts of the Lower Ohio and Middle Mis sissippi Valleys flood stricken as a consequence of the heavy rainfall of the past several days, the San Diego district. Senator James, of Kentucky, as President Wilson's personal repre sentative, addressed New York Hun garians, who adopted resolutions pledging their loyalty to the United States. The President sent a tele gram expressing confidence in them. Brig. Gen. Mills, before the Mili tary Committees, suggested the fed eralization of the militia as a basis of increase in the army. The Post office Appropriation Bill as-reproted to the House provides a substantial increase for the rural route service. At least fifty persons are be lieved to have been drowned when the lower dam of the San Diego, Cal., water system in the Otay Val ley broke under the, heavy pressure of the flood waters. All wires are down and the roads are impassable. The United States has made prep arations for Immediate war so far as the navy is concerned, but the army as at present constituted is not large enough for the duties of peace, Presi dent Wilson declared in an address at the Auditorium in Chicago. The arrest of five men in connec tion with the $15,000 Chicago bank robbery of Thursday, and the con fession of one of the prisoners, was followed by alleged disclosures that criminals had been imported into Chicago to discredit the police. In appealing for thrift and econo my in helping posterity to bear the burdens of the present war, Sir Herbert L. Samuel declared the na tional income was only $12,000,- 000,000 a year, while the war is costing about 1,800,000,000. The L. & N. Railroad Company is said to be planning to furnish thru fast train service between Louisville and McRoberts, in the far Eastern Kentucky coal fieids near the Vir ginia border, probably in the next sixty days. At a "preparedness" banquet o the Illinois Bankers' Association Chicago, George W. Perkins declared the people of America are mentally unprepared, and said the public must be educated. Apparently pleased with his visit to Berlin, where he had conferences with German officials, Col. Edward M. House, personal representative of President Wilson, has. departed for Switzerland. Officials of the du Pont Powder Company denied that any of the re cent fires and explosions at the va rious plants which resulted in many deaths and injuries had been caused by spies. The British Foreign Office made public a German note charging that French and English soldiers had ex posed prisoners to German fire. The charges were circumstantially denied. The House Contest Committee re ported in favor of seating S. C. Dobbs, Democrat, and unseating "Uncle Bill" Allen, Republican, of Clinton and Wayne counties. The Government report of farm stock on hand in Kentucky January 1 shows a decrease of 11,000 horses and mules since January 1, 1914, due to the demands of war. The battleships Texas and Wy oming of the Atlantic fleet talked by wireless telephone to one another. It was the first time this had been attempted between ships. The Administration Ship Bill to create a merchant .marine was in troduced In the House. President Wilson is expected to testify at pub lie hearings on it. That the condition of the Jews in the Eastern war zone of Europe is appalling is the burden of a report issued by the American Jewish Re-! lief Committee. Geneva dispatches state that Ger many's final answer to the United States in the Lusitania case will re fuse to make further concessions. Bad Cough? Feverish? Grippy ?

TENN. Louis D. Brandeis. The nomination of Louis D. Bran deis to the Supreme Bench to suc ceed the late. Justice Lamar takes the country completely by surprise. As conspicuous as he has been in the public eye the past few years and as notable as had been his la bors, his activities had been direct ed in so much wider a field than that of strictly the law that it was not suspected that he had even any predilection for the Judiciary. There is no question in any quarter, how ever, that he is a man of exceptional mentality and limitless industry, and with his ability and character there is no reason why he should not measure fully to the dimensions of the great place to which he has been elevated. Mr. Brandeis is known to the pub ic as a brilliant lawyer, an excel- ent citizen, a progressive thinker, with the temperament of a crusader rather than that of a Judge, but inasmuch as his head . is clear and his character unimpeachable he should make a valuable Justice of the United States Supreme Court. There is a trite adage that the appearance of the picture depends upon where you sit. A fiery doc trinaire, provided he is sincere, loses heat and gains discernment when he is placed in a position in which it is his function to practice arbitrament. Such development may be expected of Mr. Brandeia when he becomes Mr. Justice Bran dels. The President should live to see the Judge he has made vindicate the presidential Judgment.
