Lumpkin, Ga.—Mrs. 0. W. Booth,
of this place, says: "I suffered with

failed to help me.
Finally, 1 purchased two bottles of
Cardul, the woman's tonic, and began
taking it according to directions.
Cardul helped me right away. I be-

I cannot praise Cardul enough to
my lady friends. It Is certainly tha
medicine for suffering women and
If you have any of the ailments so
common to women, or if you feel the
need of a good, strengthening tonic,
we urge you to give Cardui a trial. It
has helped thousands of women in Its
past 50 years of success, as is proven
by the numerous enthusiastic letteia
of gratitude, Blmilar to the above,
which come to us every day.
Don't delay. This letter from Mrs.

OKLAHOMAN STARTLES SENATE
BY REMARKABLE SPEECH O::
SENATE INDORSES PRES. POLICY
Dictator li Flayed As Cruel Assassin.
America Shoi^d Not Stop Until
Usurper Is Deposed, Says
Washington.—Asserting that Presi-
dent Wilson was more than Justified
in refusing to recognize Huerta
as president of Mexico, and that the
United States must not turn back
until it has established constitutional
govornment in that republic, Senator
Owen Btartied the Benate with a re-
markable denunciation of the Mexi-
can dictator. His speech was an In-
timate history of Huerta from the
time he tore the reins of power from
the hands of Madero to the present
day. Through it ran the color of
blood and its story reeked with mur-
der, intrigue and violence where in-
nocent men who talked too much
went to silence behind prison walls
and Huerta by the force Of aims and
the impelling power of fear imposed
hlB will upon 12,000,000 people.
Recites History of Murders.
Senator Owen told apain the story
of the fall of Porflrlo Diaz, (the rise
of Madoro, and the plot of Huerta
and Felix Diaz, Porfiro's nephew,
which led to the overthrow and death
of Madero and put Huerta In the presi-
dent's chair. He recited the uprising
of Carranza, on authority of the leg-
islature of the state of Coahuila, and
told how Senator Domlnguez dared
denounce Huerta to the Mexican sen-
ate, declaring that Heurta had paci-
fied the country by extermination.
The Benator said tnat shortly after-
wards Domlnguez disappeared and
was reported murdered. Then he told
of attempts to securo an Investigation
of his death by the Mexican con-
gress, and how Huerta put the con-
gress in jail.
"Whereupon," he continued,, "Hu-
erta by decree, declared himself in-
vested, In flagrant violation of the
constitution, with legislative and Ju-
dicial power, in effect, military dic-
tator of Mexico. Moreover he declar-
ed the constitutional guarantees of
freodom from arrest for members of
congress abrogated;" and having thus
Invested himself with the legislative
and Judicial powers of Mexico, he
charged almost the entire Mexican
congress with sedition and treason."
Senator Owen dwelt at some length
on the "election" held for president
of Mexico on the 26th of October,
1913. He naid that while Huerta had
announced he would not be a candi-
date, he had enlarged the powers of
hlB military state governors, to cover
the election machinery. Four days
before the election, the senator Bald,
despite formal annulances to the dip-
lomats in Mexico City that he was
not a candidate, election posters were
sent broadcast urging the people to
vote for Huerta. Huerta sent instruc-
tions to his governors, said the sen-
ator, to return the votes favorable to
him and not to return more than a
certain part of the precincts, thus m-
suring a void election. This program,
he said, was carried out in every de-
tail, and the Mexican congress, discov-
ering that less than half the voting
precincts had sent In returns, de«
olared the election void and expressed
a desire that Huerta continue as pro-
"Huerta," he added dramatically,
"still Is dictator."

Washington.—Evacuation of Tam
Pico by the Mexican federal garrison
has been accomplished, according tc
a relayed wireless dispatch to the
navy department from Rear Admiral
Mayo. The federal troops left by the
That the rebels encountered des-
perate resistance in their final attack
and that they were compelled to carry
their fight to the heart of the town' was
indicated by Rear Admiral Mayo's re-
port. He reported that when the reb-
els occupied the city th«re was heavy
rifle firing in the plaza and that big
gun firing continued.
The federals retreated by way of
the railroad leading to San Luis Po-
tosi and it was aoaumed that they
hoped to reach Pachuca, the terminus
of a railway line that leads indirectly
to Mexico City. The railroad out of
Tanipico to Monterey is held by the
That the loss of life In the capture
of this important seaport has been
heavy is Indicated by reports coming
from the front daily since the last
campaign against the city. Twenty
field guns have poured shot and shell
into the city incessantly for days and
have beea answered by an equal num-
ber from the defenders. Two federal
gunboats aided the city in shelling
the attacking forces. It Is believed
hundreds, maybe thousands were slain
in the final assault, the rifle flre in
the plaza having been reported heavy
as the fe-Jerals made their last stand
The constitutionalists first attacked
Tampico last December and fighting
has been virtually continuous since.
Twice they drove the federal garri-
son into the town and seemed near
victory only to be shelled by th* gun-
boatB and forced to retire to the hills.
No estimate of the losses on either
side ever has been officially obtained.
The last reports of the federal forc-
es at Tampico Indicated less than
2,000 but they were well supplied with
ammunition and artillery. The pres.
eince of~~the Mexican jgunboaUi re-
peatedly saved the city.
MAAS SUPPLANTED BY GEN. PENA
Huerta Puts Superior Commander Jn
Charge Near Vera Cruz.
Washington.—News reached Wash-
ington through official sources that
General Garcia Pena, one of the high-
est ranking officers in the Mexican
federal army, had taken command of
the forces outside Vera Cruz, super-
seding General Maas.
This news caused speculation
around the state, war and navy de-
partments. Some officials were In-
clined to attack special significance to
the move seeing in it evidence ol

to assume an offensive attitude. On
the other hand, It was suggested that
General Maas conducted the cam-

In this connection It was suggested
that the force driven out of Tampico
might undertake to march through the
mountains and effect a junction with
the army between Mexico City and
Vera Cruz. Some of those most fa-
miliar with the situation, however,
thought this highly improbable, as
the railroad toward San Luis Potosl
over which the federals fled from
Tampico, is in operation for only
about 30 miles and the Journey down
the coast on foot would be impractic-

Reliable evidence is abundant that women
are constantly being restored to health by
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
The many testimonial letters that we are continually pub-
lishing in the newspapers—hundreds of them—are all genu-
ine, true and unsolicited expressions of heartfelt gratitude
for the freedom from suffering that has come to these
women solely through the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's
Money could not buy nor any kind of influence obtain
such recommendations; you may depend upon it that any
testimonial we publish is honest and true—if you have any
doubt of this write to the women whose true names and
addresses are always given, and learn for yourself.
Read this one from Mrs. Waters:
Camden, N.J.—"I was sick for two years with nervous spells, and
my kidneys wero affected. I had a doctor all the time and used a
galvanic battery, but nothing did me any good. I was not able to go
to bed, but spent my time on a couch or in a sleeping-chair, and soon
became almost a skeleton. Finally my doctor went away for hi3
health, and my husband heard of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound and got me some. In two months I got relief and now I
am like a new woman and am at my usual weight. I recommend
our medicine to every one and so does my husband."—Mrs. Txllib
"ateks, 1136 Knight St, Camden, N.J.
And thisione from Mrs. Haddock:
Utica, Okla.—"I was weak and nervous, not able to do my work
and scarcely able to be on my feet. I had backache, headache, palpi-
tation of the heart, trouble with my bowels, and inflammation. Since-
taking the Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound I am better
than I have been for twenty years. 1 think it is a wonderful medi-
cine and I have recommended it to others."—Mrs. Mary Ann Had-
dock, Utica, Oklahoma.
Now answer this question if you can. Why should a
woman continue to suffer without first giving Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial ? You know that
it has saved many others—why should it fail in your case?
For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound lias been the standurd remedy for fe-
male ills. No one sick with woman's ailments
does justice to herself if she does not try this fa-
mous medicine made from roots and herbs, it
has restored so many suffering women to health.
