Texas Sheep Herds Rapidly In-
creasing and Quality
The sheep ha« butted more politi-
cal parties out of power and trampled
inore politicians under its feet than
any other influence in public affairs.
Congress has recently ejected him
from legislative halls and, as he runs
through the market places bleating
for protection against the withering
winds of Australian competition and
seeks in vain, shelter from floods of
free wool from foreign countries, he
may arouse the sympathy of the Am-
erican farmer. The sheep is a states-
man of proved ability and wide ex-
perience in political affairs and he
may make his fleece the paramount
issue of the coming campaign.
Some of the most prominent
sheep of the nation who are leaders
of the ruling families will meet at
the Ft. Worth Fat Stock Show on
November 22-28 and talk over their
recent political defeat and lay plans
for future campaigns. Every can-
didate for office, student of politi-
cal economy and voter as well, should
attend the Fat Stock Show and studv
the issue which the sheep will pre-
The sheep provides food and cloth-
ing for man and enjoys the distinc-
tion of being the only animal that
renders a dual service. King Cot-
ton is a strong rival of wool but, not-
withstanding the humiliating compe-
tition of vegetable fibre, the produc-
tion of wool in the United States has
increased more rapidly than that of
cotton during the past half century.
The 1910 federal census report
shows 10,257,779 pounds of wool
produced in Texas; 289,419,9.77 in
the United States and 2,695,732,000
in the world. We furnishs less than
one-half of one per cent' of the
world's supply and 3.2 per cent of
the United States production. Wool
is produced in 207 counties in Tex-
as. The farm price per pound of
wool last season was 28 cents under
an eleven cent tariff, which has since
been removed. The annual produc-
tion per capita in Texas is 2.6 pounds
and the average consumption per
capita is 5.75 pounds. The world's
average consumption approximates
one pound per capita.
The report of the United States
Department of Agriculture shows we
had on January 1st, 2,073,000 sheep
valued at $6,012,000. During the
past ten years our sheep herds have
doubled in number and value per

After Fonr Tears of Discouraging
Conditions, Mrs. Bollock Gave
Up in Despair. Husband
Cant to Reseñe.
Catron, Ky.—In an interesting letter
from this place, Mrs. Bettie Bullock
writes as follows: "I suffered for four
years, with womanly troubles, and during
this time, 1 could only sit up for a little
while, and could not walk anywhere at
all. At times, I would have severe pain*,
in my left side.
The doctor was called in, and his treat-
ment relieved me for a while, but I was
soon confined to my bed again. After
that, nothing seemed to do me any good.
I had gotten so weak I could not stand
and 1 gave up in despair.
At last, my husband got me a bottle of
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I com-
menced taking it. From the very first
dose, I could tell it was helping me. I
can now walk two miles without Its
tiring me, and am doing all my work."
If you are all run down from womanly
troubles, don't give up in despair. Try
Cardui, the woman's tonic. It has helped
more than a million women, in its 50
years of continuous success, and should
surely help you. *ao v«ur druggist has
sold Cardui for years, fie Knows what
it will do. Ask him. He will recon
mend it Begin taking Cardui today.
