nixson, Tenn. "About 10 years ago
I was..." says Mrs. J. B. Gadd, of
this place. "I suffered with a pain in
my left side, could not sleep at night
with this pain, always in the left
side... ,. , -.
My doctor told meto use Cartful. I
took one bottle, which helped me and
after my baby came, I was stronger
and better, but the pain waa still
I at first let it go, but began to get
weak and in a run-down condition,
o I decided to try some more Cardui,
which I did.
This last Cardui which I took mads
me much better, in fact, cured me. It
has been a number of years, still I
have no return of this trouble.
I feel it was Cardui that cured me,
and I recommend it as a splendid fe
male tonic" '
Don't allow yourself to become
weak and run-down from womanly
troubles. Take Cardui. It should sure
ly help you, as it has so many thou
sands of other women In the past 40
years. Headache, backache, aideache,
nervousness, sleeplessness, tired-out
feeling, are all signs of womanly trou
ble. Other women get relief by taking
Cardui. Why not you? All druarsrfstg.

- The campaign last month in the

won by the girls in an almost two
to one. The boys are gallantly tak
ing their defeat. The sales amount
ed to near $800, we re told. We
are surprised that there is only one
depot here for stamp sales, the post
office. This throws such a burden on
the postmaster right at time to make
up afternoon mail that more sales
would be made if some other de
pository at this time qf the day was
convenient. If the plan of responsi
bility is the cause of this trouble,
the business men should petition
Secretary McAdoo for a different ar
rangement. The sale of War Savings
Stamps should not be blocked.
