The subject of - legislation needed j
by the farmers absorbed most of the
attention of the convention, and the j
trend.of discussion was that the nest
legislature should devote itself dili-
gently to" the solution of Firm prob-
lems. The convention,, oy unani-
mous vote, adopted the views of
Peter Radford, which have beeu
given wide publicity in the press, on
the legislative needs of the state.
Radford’s Legislative Views Endorsed.
The platform given out by Mr.
Radford declares, marketing and
helping the tenant farmers to be tht
paramount issues in the - present
campaign. A strong appeal is made
for a system of co-operative laws
that will give the business of farm-
’ing the same legal facilities that
are now accorded commerce and in-
dustry; the anti-trust laws are com-
mended and amendments strength-
ening’ them are requested; the

It Always Helps
says Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky., in
writing of her experience with Cardui, the woman’s
tonic. She says further: “Before 1 began to use
Cardui, my back and head would hurt so bad, I
thought the pain would kill me. 1 was hardly able
to do any of my hofisework. After taking three bottles
of CarduL 1 began to feel like a new ^oman. I soon
gained 35 pounds, and now, 1 do all my housework,
as well as run a big water mill.
I wish every suffering woman wpuld give •
g: The Woman's Tonic
a trial. 1 still use Cardui when I feel a little bad,
and it always does mfc good.”
Headache, backache, >side ache, nervousness,
tired, worn-out feelings, etc., are sure signs of w oman-'
ly trouble. * Signs that you need Cardui, the woman’s
tonic. You cannot make a mistake in trying Cardui
for your trouble. It has been helping weak, ailing
women for more than fifty years.
