Write* Lady Who can Now Walk Font
Mile* a Day Without Feel-
Boydton, Va.—Mrs. Fannlo Boyd, of
this town, sayB: "I am sure I would
hare been in my grave, bad It not
been for Cardut, the woman's tonic,
and I certainly cannot praise It
enough, for It la worth Its weight in
gold. I am, today, a walking adver-
tlaement for Cardul.
Before taking Cardul, I could hardly
walk across the floor, I was bo weak.
I underwent an operation last spring
for womanly trouble, but felt no better.
After using 8 bottles of Cardul, the
woman's tonic, my ulcers were all
gone, I can oat hearty without suffer-
ing any pain, feel fine in every way,
work all day, and can walk four miles
a day without feeling tired.
Please publish this letter, as I would
like for every woman to know what
Cardui did for me."
Many letters, similar to the above,
come to us, unsolicited, every day.
This one should surely convince you
of the merit of Cardui, as It expresses
the earnest sentiment of a lady who
has tried it.
If you suffer from any of the numer-
ous ailments so common to women,
such as headache, backache, nervous-
ness, weakness, pains in sides and limbs
sleeplessness, etc., begin taking Cardu
today. It will help you, as it has helped
so many others, iu the past kal f century

London.—The rising among the
ftasutos at Jagersfonteln draws at-
tention to one of the most remarkable
of the native races in South Africa.
Basutoland Is a self-governing natlvo
territory under the aegis of the Brit-
ish crown. Tie spirit of British pol-
icy toward it was strikingly revealed
recently by Lord Gladstone when be-
fore thousands of Basutos he first
proclaimed Griffiths the future king,
and then, as the servant of King
George, saluted the new ruler of the
Thirty years ago Great Britain
started upon the experiment of help-
ing the Basuto nation to govern Itself.
Today no matter what test of progress
Is applied to that country, half as
large again as Wales, the response Is
conclusive. There is loyalty to the
crown, racial peace, national vitality,
religious amity and economic sta-
The critics of 30 years ago pre-
dicted disaBter, and not without some
reason. The Boers had tried to con-
quer the Basutos and failed, British
expeditions ended in disaster, British
sovereignty was proclaimed and aban-
doned. The Orange Free 8tate de-
clared war against the Basutos and
received such a hot reception that
they had to give up. The Cape parllar
ment too tried to govern this distant
territory, but failed and abandoned
it. Then a new era dawned, the ad-
ministration of Basutoland by the
Basutos and for the Basutos alone,
under the guidance of a British ad-
The chancellor of the exchequer of
Basutoland must be a happy man, for
he has never faced a deficit The
taxation In Basutoland Is about four
shillings six pence per capita per an-
num upon a population of 400,000 and
every year the budget shows a sur-
plus. The country haB no debt, but
ends the realized surplus to other na-
tive territories or places large sums
on fixed deposits In the South Afri-
can bank. The accumulated Burplua
standing to the credit of the Basuto
administration is more than $750,000.
"Before the commencement of the
British experiment of home rule un-
der the Crown BaButoland was seldom
free from wars, rumors of wars and
tribal fights, which gravely prejudiced
the development of the country,"

when three weeks old took the ecze-

out In pimples and firBt they looked
like blisters and a yellow water would

any more hair. As the sores spread

Grundy on Shaw.
Sydney Grundy has written a little
pamphlet in which he has gone for
Mr. Bernard Shaw with a hatchet.
He says: "Mr. Shaw is a spent force
—a closed chapter—a tala that Is
told—a back number—a lott chord—a
fired rocket—an exploded mine—an
extinct volcano, vomiting enly ashes
and dust. Mr. Shaw Is done. His
star Is on the wane; his candle only
gutters In its socket; Ills beauty is
passe, Ills wheezes are chestnuts, his
sleights of hand transparent, bis

with time, and gave himself twenty
years' start, and time is beating him
to a frazzle."

cal territories are feeling acutely their

the population was 218,324 and in 1901
it had Increased to 347,731, and In the
next decade, 1911, to something over
400,000—In 20 years It had nearly dou-
bled. and today Basutoland, with over
40 persons to the square mile, is the
most densely populated native area In
the African continent."

TALES TOLD OF ULSTERMEN
Testing Nephew's knowledge.
There is a certain old German of
Wilkesbarre, Pa., whose pride. Ilka
that of many self-made men, leads him
at times Into a sort of patronizing con-
descension toward those things he did
not "have time for" when he was mak-
ing his way In life.
Upon the occasion of the graduation
of a nephew, he asked:
"Veil, Wilhelm, vot did dey teach
you up there?"
"Greek and Latin," said the boy,
"and German and algebra."
"So, so!" murmured the old Ger-
man. "And vot's der algebra for po-
tatoes, now?"—Youth's Companion.

Bull Worthy of Any One From the
County of Cork—"Canny" About
The Ulsterman is not incapable of
a bull, says the British Weekly. It
was an Ulster marquis who endeared
himself to his tenantry by the memor-
able bull uttered in his speech at an
agricultural dinner: "I wish my farm-
ers would use iron plows, because
they last forever, and will afterwards
sell as old iron."
It was an Ulsterman who at a
funeral observed the awkward work
of an unaccustomed hand, and ex-
claimed as he seized a shovel:
wasn't seven years courting a sex
ton's daughter without learning to
sod a grave."
No matter how large the bride's for-
tune, the Ulsterman generally grum-
bled over the marriage fee.
"Wouldn't half a crown timpt ye?'
asked a bridegroom of the officiating
minister when the clerk demanded the
usual five shillings.
