Below Her Statement
Tallapoosa, On.—Mrs. Sallle Eidson,
of this place, writes: "I was in very
poor health, nil run-down, nervous,
had fainting spells, dizziness and heart
fluttering. I had these symptoms us-
ually at my . . . times. I had a
very hard time, working for seven
years In a hotel nfter my father died.
I hnd to support our fninlly of four. I
read the Birthday Almanac and
thought I would begin taking Cardui.
I received good benefit from It I am
sure It will do all that It claims to do.
I took three or four bottles before It
began to show effects. After ttait I
Improved rapidly and gnlned In henlth
and strength. I took nine bottles In
all. This Is the only time I hnve
tnken It. I wns down to 108 pounds
and I gained to 122. I felt like a new
womnn. I couldn't sleep before nnd
hnd to be rubbed, I would get so nerv-
ous and numb. And all this was
■topped by Cardui."
The true value of a medicine cnn be
determined only by the results ob-
tained from its actual use. The thou-
sands of letters we have received
every year for many years from
grateful users of Cardui, are powerful
tributes to Its worth and effectiveness.
If you suffer from womanly ailments,
try Cardui, the woman's tonic.—Adv.

"California Syrup of Figs" can't
harm tender stomach,

Every mother realizes, after giving
her children "California 8yrup of

becauso they love Its pleasant taste
and it thoroughly cleanses the tender
little stomach, liver and bowels with-
When cross, irritable, feverish, or
breath Is bad, stomach sour, look at
the tongue, mother! If coated, give a
teaspoonful of this harmless "fruit
laxative," and In a few hours all the
foul, constipated waste, sour bile and
undigested food passes out of the bow-
els, and you have a well, playful child
again. When its little system Is full
of cold, throat sore, has stomach-ache,
diarrhoea, Indigestion, colic—remem-
ber, a good "Inside cleaning" should
always be the first treatment given.
Millions of mothers keep "California
Byrup of Figs" handy; they know a
teaspoonful today saves a sick child
tomorrow. Ask at the store for a 60-
cent bottle of "California Syrup of
Figs," which has directions for babies,
children of all ages and grown-ups
printed on the bottle. Adv.

There have been several seasons In
which black velvet dominated, but
there has never been anything to equal
the lust six months. At any for^
gathering of women, the black velvet
hat wus us seemingly necessary to the
costume as the steel helmet to the sol-

varied, but the hat wus black velvet,

There are also satin hats In all the
shades that nature gives to a dahlia,
for America, as well ns France, has
decided thnt these purplish tones nre
excessively good-looking and Is re-
penting them throughout costumery
with excellent effect.
The brilliant purple thnt wns advo-
cated at the beginning of the season
| has been coldly greeted, but the deep
purples that nre almost on blue nnd
black are found to agree with every
kind of gown and cont worn.
The shapes of the new hats reveal
no long-disguised secrets on the part
of the millinery. The Russian turban
in Its original form Is abandoned, but
there is on undoubted suggestion from
the Muscovite turban In the new hat
that Is a reversal of the old—meaning
that the high point of the brim In
front Is now turned to the back, and
Instead of the ornament being placed

Russian Style Passe.
The national Russian headdress has
been worn n bit threadbare In some
of the chenpet* hats, but Its original
glory Is retained by the brides who nre
nrrunglng these crowns with the point
in front, as u setting for the tulle
There Is another Influence at work
nmong some of the milliners, which
suggests the field hats worn by the
European armies In the early part of
the nineteenth century. These tur-
bans nre of sutlu, with the brim
turned so high thnt the crown van-
ishes, and elongated at the sides und 1
flattened nt the bnck. One of the |
best of these Frencl shapes Is made |
of black satin, the top of the extra
high, upturned brim edged with n
fringe of aigrettes.
The main points to remember In '
the new hats nre the tightness of the 1
hendband in all turbans, the even line !
which Is carried out around the head, j
the elimination of more than one or-
nament and the tendency to hold to \
Slavic ornamentation Instead of any
The Chinese mandarin turban
which has come Into first fashion
along with the Chinese fabrics und
ornaments imported to this country
to fill the plnce of the Europenn im-
portations, Is strangely In keeping with
some of the Russinn shnpes, nnd even
the colors of the Chinese ornament
which hangs from the button at the
top, closely resemble those used by the
Slavs. Well, there were days In the
formation of the races on this planet
when the Mongolian nnd the Russinn
were closely mingled. Genghis Khnn
left many Mongoilun truces in thnt

The Transparent Brim.
Since the advent of the evening hut
ns an adjunct to the low gown when
one Is dining In restuurants, there has
come Into the fashions an entirely new
kind of millinery. These new things
are afternoon hats de luxe. All that
the milliners wanted a woniun to wear
in the afternoon, and ugainst which
she rebelled for many reasons, she Is
huppy to wear at night It hus given
her u good opportunity to exploit the
wide brim, which motoring, duncing
nnd skntlng hnve put somewhat in the
These brims ate transparent. Car-
toonists used to draw amusing pic-
tures of women using brims of bats
as a substitute for veils, and the Idea
wns considered capricious and attrac-
tive; and, suddenly, It is taken seri-
ously. Metallic net and bullion lace
are used for these wide brims, nnd
the hut Is tilted so far forward over
the eyebrows that it is an easy mat-
ter to look upward through the fabric.
The fashion has also led to women
doing up their eyes a bit In the Orien-
tal manner, so as to make them more
significant nnd expressive under the
half-concealing mrtal tissue.
The crowns of these large evening
hats are mude of crystals, of closely
crushed roses and qf heavy metal em-
broidery on tulle or satin, but there are
no feathers. The much-vaunted os-
trich feather, which was taken up by
the best of the French designers In
September, did not gnln a place In the
affections of the public, and the
musketeer hat that Talbot revived,
with Its sweeping plumes nnd Its like-
ness to those worn by the women of
the elghteeenth century In Englnnd,

who wanted something different from
It may be safely said that In choos-
ing an evening hat or one for the aft-
ernoon, if you have the social oppor-
tunity to exploit so ornamental nn
article, It Is wise to Just look Into the
metallic fabrics and go no further.

It Is nt its very best In the lntter

neck, absence of collar nnd full

an alluring picture.
It Is not within the power of every
woman to look well In a metallic hnt.

of her appearnnce, let her take her
courage In both hands nnd defy opin-

The lenn varieties of
fish they usually boll,
such as cod, hnddock,
red snnpper and mack-

the well-cleaned fish In diagonal slices,
us the flsh stays together better, und
cook In slightly acidulated water a
few whole black peppers and a little
salt; then cover nnd simmer until the
flsh Is tender.
Fish Pudding.—Cook the flsh a little
underdone In water with a tablespoon-
ful of vinegar and salt and black pep-
pers, and then drain and pound until
all the fiber Is broken. Now season
with butter, cream and fish stock, un-
til It Is of the consistency of thin enke
batter. Pour Into greased molds and
steam for two hours and a half. Serve
with drawn butter snuce.
Cod en Casserole.—Prepare cod as
for frying. Dot the bottom of the cas-
serole with bits of butter, then place
In It n layer of fish. Dust lightly with
flour, salt nnd pepper. Dot with but-
ter and repeat. When the flsh Is all
used pour over It a half cupful of wa-
ter or flsh stock, a third of a cupful
of orange Juice nnd the Juice of half
a lemon. Add parsley nnd onion. Fit
the cover tightly and bake
Baked Salmon.—Clean a four-pound
salmon, and stuff with bread dressing
made from a cupful of crumbs, half
a cupful of finely chopped apple, pars-
ley, onion, and salt and pepper to

slice is laid a slice of lemon nnd a

Too IQ to Walk Upright Operation
Advised. Saved by Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
This woman now raises chickens and
does manual labor. Read her story:
Richmond, Ind.—"For two years I
was so sick and weak with troubles
from my age that
when going up
stairs I had to go
very slowly with
my hands on the
steps, then sit down
at the top to rest
The doctor said he
thought I should
have an operation,
and my friends
thought I would not
live to move into
our new house. My
daughter asked me
to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound as she had taken it with good
results. I did so, my weakness dis-
appeared, I gained in strength, moved
into our new home, did all kinds of
garden work, shoveled dirt, did build-
ing and cement work, and raised hun-
dreds of chickens and ducks. I can-
not say enough in praise of Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and
if these facts are useful you may pub-
lish them for the benefit of other
women."-Mrs. M. O. JOHNSTON,Routs

All of these evening hats are worn
with low gowns more often than with
half-high ones, but so far they have
not been adopted nt the theater, for
few women are willing to go buck to
the Inconvenient duys of holding n
Inrge hut on their Inps, or, fnlllng In
the attempt to hold It, spend most of
their time frnntlcnlly grabbing It to
keep It from slipping, or picking It up
from under the heels of the man who
goes out between the nets.

Excellent Formula for Life That It
Will Be Found Hard to Make
Charles Kingsley has given this for-
mula in one of his books and as a cer-
tain and safe prescription it can
scarcely be improved upon.
"Make it a rule," he said, "and pray
God to help you keep it, never to lie
down ot night without being able to
say: 'I have made one human being
at least a little wiser,.a little happier,
or a little better this day.'"
At first thought it does not seem as
though this should be a very difficult
course to pursue. The Important
thing is to make up your mind to live
up to this Ideal; theu, nfter that, it is
a matter of living one day at a time,
one day of thoughtfulness, one day of
helpfulness, one day of closer Tampan-
lonshlp with those who are near and
should be dear to us—Anon.
