Washington May 23. A prelimi-

bureau on the peach industry in the
United States during 1910 shows that

" I suffered during girlhood from womanly weakness"
writes Mrs. Mollie Navy of Walnut N. C. "At last I was
almost bed-ridden and had to 'give up. We had three
doctors. All the time 1 was getting worse. 1 had bad
spells that lasted from 7 to 28 days. In one week after I
gave Cardui a trial I could eat sleep and joke as well as
anybody. In 8 weeks I was well. 1 had been an invalid
for 5 weary years 1 Cardui relieved me when everything.
CISC' failed." '
If you are weak and ailing think what it would mean(
to you to recover as quickly as Mrs. Navy did. For more
than 50 years this purely vegetable tonic remedy for women
has been used by thousands of weak and ailing sufferers.
They found it of real value in relieving their aches and
pains. Why suffer longer? A remedy that has relieved
and helped so many is ready at the nearest drug store for
use at once by you. Try it today.

writer and bookkeeper had very bad
luck in trying to obtain a position at
even a fair salary Though there was
no Joko In the continual disappoint-
ments she found a funny side to one
experience. The manager of a place

her that the salary paid at Orst would

year It would be Increased to $D while
by the third year she would receive
the magnificent sura of $1' Mechan

Exterminating Our Wild Life.
The forces that are actively seeking
to destroy nil our best wild life are
overwhelmingly numerous and very
aggressive. Unfortunately each one of
these forces of destruction Is stead
ily becoming more deadly. I assert
without feHr of contradiction that to
day every valuable wild species in our
country Is being killed faster than it
is breeding. In our own tiroes the
great auk. passenger pigeon. Labrador
duck Eskimo curlew. Carolina parra-
keet flamingo (in the United States).
Pallao'8 cormorant and the whooping
crane have been completely extermi-
nated. There are at least fourteen
more species of birds that will be ren-
dered extinct in the near future un-
less a revolution in public sentiment

slaughter. William T. Hornaday tn
