Surgeons agree that in cases
of cuts, burns, bruises and
wounds, the first treatment is
most important. When an effi-
cient antiseptic is applied
prom(ly, there is no danger of
infection and the wound begins
to heal at once. For use on man
or beast, Borozowk is the ideal
antiseptic and heading agent.

A Letter From “Over There”
A letter has been received
from Jim Albert Tucker, who
has for some time been in the
front line trenches, serving as a
runner with the marines. He
says that the marines have given
the Boches a trouncing on every
side, and that the Boches, tho
they have tried everything from
“Kamerad” to the deadly gas,
have found no way to conquer
the marines, for it can’t be done.
Jimmie says that, tho he has
oad several narrow escapes, that
he is well and in fine spirits—all
the fellows are. Theo Delleuey
is still with him, and both boys

Many thousands oI
women suffering from
womanly trouble, have
been benefited by the use
of Cardui, the woman’s
tonic, according to letters
we receive, similar to this
one from Mrs. Z.V.Spell,
of Hayne, N.C. “Icould
not stand on my feet, and
jost suffered terribly,”
she says. "As my suf-
fering was so great, and
he had tried other reme-
dies, Dr. - had us

me. I know, and my
doctor knows, what Car-

owe it to Cardui, for I was
in dreadful condition.”
If you are nervous, run-
down and weak, or suffer
from headache, backache,
etc., every month, try
Cardui. Thousands of
women praise this medi-
cine for the good it has
done them, and many
physicians who iiave used
Cardui successfully with
their women patients, for
years, endorse this medi-
cine. Think what it means
to be in splendid health,
like Mrs. Spell. Give
Cardui a trial.

Tho value and need of a newspaper
in tho household was never greater
than at tho present time. We have
been forced to enter the groat world
war, and a large army of ours Is al-
ready in France. You will want to
have all tho news from our troops on

ises to be the most momentons year In
the history of our universe. No other
newspaper at so small a price will
furnish such promp and accurate
news of these world-shaking events.
It is not nocessarv to say more. The

final appeal, and urge that my trlenda

promised me (heir support, trie rent

win the nomination for state senator.
On arcount ot the size of the dls

mands of business upon my time, l

tial campaign, and there are many
voters whom I have not me: person-
ally therefore this statement of my
position on the issues of the day
A native Texan (born in Grimes
county,) the son of a Confederate
soldier end the ureat-grandson of a
major in Washington s army, and
having spent more than thirty years
in the service of the state as an of-
ficer in the National Guard. it was
but natural that when our country
entered the war last year I desired
military service. I was appointed
captain of infantry and authorized to
raise a company for foreign service.
This 1 accomplished after six weeks
of haul work, and was mustered Into
the state service, but when the troops
were Federalized 1 was barred on ac
count of my age and was forced to
remain at home while my company
went to the training camp command
ed by a younger man. That company
is now on the road to Berlin and
will do its duty. And ! feel that I
have done my duty also in accepting
the part assigned mo—that of remain
Ing at home to assi9t in Liberty
Loan, Red Cross and Thrift Stamp
campaigns, etc., to all of which I
have liberally contributed and will
continue to do so.
For the past twenty years I have
published a newspaper in Mexia. and
have always worked for the upbuild
ing of the country, for clean politics
and good government, and having an
extensive acquaintance with public
men and a knowledge of the needs
and wants of the people, fool that I
am competent to fill the office of
state senator and to render efficient
service to tho people.
I served a short term in tho legis-
lature as a member of the House
four years ago. and voted for the
present warehouse law. designed to
Improve marketing conditions and eu
abio the farmer to got a fair price
for his products. This was the most
important bill acted on during that
session, except the bill that proposed
to take the childrens' school fund and
use it to establish a state bank
which hill I voted against and thus
assisted in its defeat.
I heartily endorse the admlnistra
tjon of Governor Hobby and the war
measures -recommended by him and
passed at the recent called session of
the legislature, and had 1 been a
member of that body I would have
voted for all of said bills. These war
measures are designed to protect the
soldiers camped within our state and
the people In general from the evil

But more particularly, and in brief.
