JACKSBORO, JACK COUNTY, TEXAS, THURSDAY. OCTOBER 31, 1912.
Pains All Over!
‘You are welcome,” says Mrs. Nora Guffey, of Broken
Arrow. Okla., “to use my letter in any way you want to,
if it will induce some suffering woman to try Cardui. I had
pains all over, and suffered with an abscess. Three phy-
sicians failed to relieve me. Since taking Cardui, I am in
better health than ever before, and that means much to me,
because I suffered many years with womanly troubles, of
different kinds. What other treatments I tried, helped me
for a few days only.”
CAROL! I WomaiftTomc
Don’t wait, until you are taken down sick, before tak-
ing care of yourself. The small aches and pains, and other
symptoms of womanly weakness and disease, always mean
worse to follow, unless given quick treatment
You would always keep Cardui handy, if you knew
what quick and permanent relief it gives, where weakness
and disease of the womanly system makes life seem hard
to bear. Cardui has helped over a million women. Try it

To the Voters of Jack Couaty.
November the 5th 1912, the peo-
ple will be called upon to vote
either for or against a change in
the Constitution of this State. The
undersigned take this means of ex-
pressing oqr approval of the pro
posed Amendment to Article 16 of
the Constitution by adding a new
Section thereto, to be it known
and designated as “Section 30a,’
and of commending it to the fav
orahie consideration of the voters
of this county at the General Elec
The State University, the five
state Normals, the penal institu
tions, and all charitable institu-
tions owned by the State are con-
trolled by governing boards ap
pointed by the Governor of the
State for a period of two years.
Thus the entire management of
these institutions may change
every two years. The proposed
Amendment provides for a six
year term of office, one third of
the members of the boards retiring
every two years. This gives con-
tinouB boards for these institu-
tions and practically eliminates
them from partisan politics.
A vote for th«» Amendment is a
vote for more practical and busi-
ness-like management of our
Schools, Asylums and Prisons.

Thoughts on the Carnival.
Having heard some thoughts on
the evils that the Carnival would
bring to our town before it came,
and then seeing it in full bloom
and a summing up of its evils af-
ter it had left; we wish to make a
few remarks in regard to,it;
I am in perfect sympathy with
the fact that most of the features
of the carnival were demoralizing
in effect, and we are strictly op-
posed to all such. We are against
the gambling joints as well as the
other immoral features; they were
for the getting of money at the ex-
pense of morality and religion.
But there must be a cause for those
things, what is it? A means of
getting money; then if they are so
bad in effect why are they allowed
to run? Some say lets petition the
City Council and Board of Trade
not to allow another one to come
here; gress it would be all right
for them' to go to other places
where we are not directly interest-
jnuriei waiter 2,000 . _L . *---------

— - bling joints here was not the fault
of any one individual but of our
ethical and social system.
People must live, oui^ present
system licences many kinds of
schemes by which we take advan-
tage of our fellow man, and they
are not all following Carnival com-
panies either. The scheme is not
to blame but the people who sup-
port the system.
Suppose, we petition and pray for
Wilson to be elected president 364
days in the year and on election
day vote for Debs woujd Wilson be
elected, certainly not.
It is just the same with other
things and conditions. If we pray
against Gambling, Saloons, White
Slavery and all other evils 364 days
and the next day vote for a system
that recognizes them as a business
proposition you know that our praj’
era will not be answered. Then
let us Pray, work and vote for a
system that will give us what we
feel will be for ohr good and God's
glory: and we will get it. I am
not against the bringing together
of the products of the farm for the
purpose of stimulating the people
to greater things but what is the
real difference between offering
your chickens for a premium on ex-
libit or taking a chance at putting
the balls in the well buckets?
Our economic system or our re-
igion one seems to be wrong as
they are not both in harmony with
he Bible, so we should change one
or the other, which will you do?
We say change the system by vot-
ing for Socialism and the ejhics of
Christianity are identcal, could a
“better reason be given. Robt. H.
