(By the Club Reporter)
The visit of Mesdames Penny-
backer, Fall and Scott last week was
an event in the social and intellectual
life of Kingsville, never before ex-
perienced in its history.
Mrs. Pennybacker, a Texas woman,
is now filling her second term as Na-
tional President of Federated Wom-
ens Clubs with a membership of over
two million. That Texas will again
be honored in the choice of another
president from this state within the
next half score years, is unlikely, and
so Kingsville citizens are indeed in-
debted to Mrs. Marie Toner, Presi-
dent of the Womens Club and Civic
League for giving them and their
children tlie opportunity to meet and
hear the leader of all club women,
and the author of a Texas history,
in her discourse at FlatoOperahouse,
which theater was filled Friday af-
ternoon with patriotic men, women
Their visit was made particularly
the Santa Gertrudis, palatial home
of Mrs. Henrietta M. King and Mrs.
R. J. Kleberg. On the morning after
their arrival, Mrs. Toner drove out to
early breakfast with the other guests
preparatory to their drive over the
ranch, and all were delighted to find
that Mrs. King had honored them
with her presence at the early morn-
After being driven by Mrs. Kleberg
to see the various industries of the
ranch in tun operation, iucj ictiirn
ed to an elaborate luncheon presid-
ed over in person by Mrs. King.
The spacious board was spread
with a cover of exquisite drawn
work, with a centerpiece of blue bon-
nets, the State Federation flower,
resting upon an American flag. Small
vases of Indianpinks and blue bon-
nets graced each plate, together with
place cards bearing a picture of the
Mrs. King throughout the luncheon
charmingly entertained her guests
with facinating reminisences of early
days on the historical ranch. The
gracious and charming manner of the
venerable hostess delighted all, and
they were loathe to leave when the
time came to say goodbye.
A short visit was made to the Hen-
rietta M. King school, and from there
the ladies proceeded to the operp.
Mrs. Toner in appropriate speeches
introduced the speakers to her fellow
The theme of Mrs. Pennybacker’s
address—‘Loyalty of one woman to
another and one club to another—
without doubt touched a responsive
chord in the sympathetic audience
and awakened a desire in each to be-
come bigger and broader.
Mrs. H. B. Fall, the beloved State
President, paid a pretty tribute to
Kingsville in a short talk following
Mrs. Pennybacker. She has the hap-
py faculty of always inspiring young
women to good desires and as Em-
erson says: “getting down to the
heart of things, where something al-
ways, always sings.’’
Her efforts in behalf of girls in
every condition of life have begun to
bear fruit, and as club women they
are becoming more active, more force
ful and more worthful to the general j
social scheme. The fact that in her
work and social life she urges Bible
study and carries out the teachings
of the Golden Rule and the admoni-
tion of Matthew- (7-1-2) to “judge not
that ye be not judged,” make her in-
deed a friend to all women and an

inspiration to all who know her.
Mrs. R. G. Scott, past district pres-
ident, made every one feel good by
her delightfully characteristic talk,
and her many friends here were glad
to welcome her. She is loved by all
who know her, and is a leader in club
work in Southwest Texas and always
works harmoniously with everyone
for the social uplift of mankind.
A fitting climax, characterized by
a distinctive charm and interest, was
the dinner given the distinguished
guests, under the auspices of the
Womens Club, Friday evening, at
Casa Ricardo where covers were laid
Pink Carnations and ferns, the
club color and flower, were used in
profusion throughout the handsome
dining room. On the center table
about which the honor guests were
seated, gold and pink shaded tapers
held in crystal candlesticks, gave a
soft radiance, while a large gilt Mar-
ie Antoinette basket holding exqui-
site carnations gracefully tied with
clouds of pink maline was used as a

Following a seven course menu,
Mrs. Toner in her ever-gracious and
charming manner introduced Dr.
Chandler, who made a pleasing and
appreciative address of welcome to
to the noted women, which testified
to his approval of their great work.
This was replied to in turn by Mrs.
Fall, Mrs. Pennybacker and Mrs.
Scott. Mrs. Pennybacker in her reply
and in her toast to the rnen of Kings-
ville won the hearts and admiration
and everyone went away a full-fledg-
ed advocate of womens clubs and of
A delightful instrumental and vocal
program was given during the dinner
by Mrs. Flewellen, Mrs. Couuch and
Miss Lynch. The duet from II Tro-
vatore by Mrs. Flewellen and Mrs.
Couch was well received. “With You”
and “Banjo Song” were beautifully
rendered by Miss Lynch who possess-
es a splendid voice rich and full.
Two songs by Mrs. Flewellen, “In
the Garden of My Heart,' and ‘Awake
Tis Dawn” were clasically interpret-
ed, and one wonders how so much

Catron, Ky.—In an interesting letter
bom this place, Mrs. Bettie Bullock
writes as follows: “1 suffered for tour
years, with womanly troubles, and during
this time, 1 could only sit up for a nttle
while, and could not walk anywhere at
an. At times, i would have severe pains
in my left side.
The doctor was called in, and his treat-
ment relieved me for a while, but 1 was
soon confined to my bed again. After
that, nothing seemed to do me any good.
1 had gotten so weak I could not stand,
and 1 gave up in despair.
At last, my husband got me a bottle ot \
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and 1 com*
menced taking it From the very first j
dose, I could teU It was helping me. I j
can now walk two miles without ItSi
tiring me, and am doing all my work.** j
If you are all run down from womanly
troubles, don’t give up in despair. Try
Cardui, the woman’s tonic. It has helpedi
more than a million women, in its 90:
years of continuous success, and should
surely help you, too. Your druggist hat
sold Cardui tor years. He knows what
it will do. Ask him. He will recom*
mend it Begin taking Cardui today. -
