In this issue we have
pleasure of announcing R. A.
Shield *s a candidate to succeed
himself as county commissioner.
It is a real pleasure to announce
such a man, one who can be de-
pended upon to do his full duty,
and guard the county's interest
as he would his own.
Mr. Shield is too well known
to need any introduction to the
voters of his precinct and as far
as we learn he has given satis-
I faction, and we know he has
saved the county thousands of
fol-1 dollars, nor is the term "thous-
the ands" used without strick re-
gard for th^f'truth.
He doubtless will have opposi-
tion, provided a man can b:

Recently several persons were
discussing a certain man as a
probable candidate for a county
office. All were agreed as to
his fitness for the position, and
also recognised the superior
traits of the gentleman as a
man and citizen, buf he had
committed the unpardonable
sin of exercising frugality, busi-

A Difficult Mark
A 3tory that Lincoln used to
enjoyed telling is recalled by the
Housekeeper. It is to imagine
the maxims of homely philosophy
that it could be used to illustrate.
A certain old backwoodsman
had very heavy, overhanging
eyebrows, and wore big spec-
tacles with brass rims. One day
he came rushing into his cabin,
and seizing his rifle, aimed it
carefully through a crack of the
door at a great oak-tree that
j stood near and fired.
"What is it?" whispered" his
"A wildcar, Sairy," he said,
'excitedly, "nn'I missed htm!"
He hastily loaded and fired a-

his good wife. "Let me look at

The Portland Oregonian tells
of a young mother and her pret-

on a train. The infant attracted
the attention of an elderly gen-
tleman passenger, who stopping
to admire it, said, in addressing
its proud mother, "A fine
youngster that, madam, I hope

a hand out or a public trough at
the county crib.

[ Mr. R. A. Shield went to
bart this morning.
Shortly after midnight Tues
day morning the wind began to
blow from the north east at a-
bout 60 miles per hour. The
sky was clear and the air filled
with dust, but soon clouds cover-
ed the heavens, and by 7:00 a.
m. a light mist was falling.
Two hours later a fine snow be-
gan to shimmer through the
darkened air, and in a few min-
utes the most blinding snow
storm was raging, which con-
tinued until 6;30 p. m. At times
the wind blew a hurrican, reach-
ing 75 or 80 miles per hour, and
the fine snow fell and blew so
thick that objects a few feet a-
way were seen only in outline.
Roads, both wagon and rail,
running north and south were
kept swept clean by the gale,
but that extending east and west
were piled high with the snow.
On farms where the cotton
stalks are still standing the rows
were filled, and where the land
is listed the furrows are full of
the snow which will be of great
advantage in the way of mois-
ture. In many places the drifts
were 10 feet deep.
The children at school were
with dificulty got home, and one
school wagon of Consolidated
number 2, we are told, had to
find lodging for the children at
a way side house on account of
drifts across the road.

Are You Nervous?
What makes you nervous? It is the weakness of your
womanly constitution, which cannot stand the strain of the
hard work you do. As a result, you break down, and ruin
your entire nervous system. Don't keep this up! Take
Cardui, the woman's tonic. Cardui is made from purely
vegetable ingredients. It acts gently on the womanly organs,
and helps them to do their proper work. It relieves pain
and restores health, In a natural manner, by going to the
source of the trouble and building up the bodily strength.
Mrs. Grace Fortner, of Man, W. Va., took Cardui.
This is what she says about It: "I was so weak and
nervous, I could not bear to have anyone near me. I had
fainting spells, and I lost flesh every day. The first dose
of Cardui helped me. Now, I am entirely cured of the
fainting spells, and I cannot say enough for Cardui, for I
know It saved my life." It 13 the b?3t tonic for women
Do you suffer from any of the pains peculiar to women?
Take Cardui. It will help you. / Ask your druggist.
