And For Three Sommers Mrs. Vin-

Any of Her Housework.
Pleasant Hill. N. C.—"1 suffered for
three summers,” writes Mrs. Walter
Vincent, of this town, “and the third and
last time, was my worst.
I had dreadful nervous headaches and
prostration, and was scarcely able to

Cardui is purely vegrtahle and gentle-

effect, on the womanly constitution.
Cardui makes far increased Strength,
improves the appetite, tones up the ner-

Cardui has helped more than a million

OVER A MILLION AND A HALF
WOMEN WORK AS FARM HANDS
IN THE UNITED STATES.
By Pettr Radford
Ln-turer National Farmers’ Union.
Our government never faced to tre-
mendous a problem as that now lying
dormuut at the doors of congress and
the legislatures, and which, when
aroused, will shake this nation from
center to circumference, and make
civilization hide Its face in shame.
That problem is—women in the field.
The last federal census reports
show we now' have 1,514,000 women
working In the field, most of them
south of the Mason and Dixon line.
There were approximately a million
negro slaves working in the fields
when liberated by the emancipation
proclamation. We have freed our
slaves and our women have taken
their places In bondage. We have
broken the shackles off the negroes
and welded them upon our daughters.
The Chain-Gang of Civilisation.
A million women tn bondage in the
southern fields form the chain-gang of
civilization —the industrial tragedy
of the age. There Is no overseer quite
so cruel as that of unrestrained greed,
no whip that stings like the lash of
suborned destiny, and no auctioneer's
block quite so revolting as that of or-
The president of the United States
was recently lauded by the press, and
very properly so, for suggesting medi-
ation between the engineers and rail
road managers in adjusting their
schedule of time and pay. The engt
neers threatened .to strike If their
wages were not Increased from ap-
proximately ten to eleven dollars per
day and service reduced from ten to
eight hours and a similar readjust-
ment of the overtime schedule. Our
women are working In the field, many
of them barefooted, for less than 50
cents per day, and their schedule Is
the rising fl'in and the evening etar,
and after the day’s work is over they
milk the cows, slop the hogs and rock
the baby to sleep. Is anyone mediat-
ing over their problems, and to whom
shall they threaten a strike?
Congress has listened approvingly
to those who toll at the forge and be-
hind the counter, and many of our
statesmen have smiled at the threats
and have fanned the flame of unrest
among industrial laborers. But wom-
en are as surely the final victims of
industrial warfare as they are the .
burden-bearers In the war between na- ;
tions, and those who arbitrate and j
mediate the differences between capt- (
tal and labor should not forget that
when the expenses of any Industry' are
unnecessarily increased, society foots
the bill by drafting a new consignment
of women from the home to the field.
Pinch no Crumb From Womsn’e Crust
No financial award can be made
without someone footing the bill, and
j we commend to those who accept the
' responsibility of the distribution of in-
j dustrlal justice, the still small voice of
; the woman in the field as she pleads
for mercy, and we beg that they pinch
i no crumb from her crust of bread or
put another patch upon her ragged
We beg that they listen tn the
I scream of horror from the eagl*
i pvery American dollar that Is wrung
j from the brow of tolling womon and
hear the Goddess of .Tustice hiss et a
verdict that Increases the want of
! woman to satisfy the greed of man.
The women behind the counter and
' in the factory cry aloud for sympathy
and the press thunders out in their
defense and the pulpit pleads for
mercy, but how about the woman In
the field? Will not these powerful
exponents of human rights turn their
talent, energies and influence to her
relief? Will the Goddess of Liberty
enthroned at Washington hold the cal-
loused hand and soothe the feverish
brow of her sex who sows and reaps
the nation’s harvest or will she permit
the male of the species to above
women—weak and weary—from the
bread line of industry to the back al-
leya of poverty?
Women and Children Flrat.
Tjje census enumerators tell us that
of the i 514,GOO women who work in the
fields as fard hand. 409 000 are aix-
teen years of age afld under./Whntla
the final destiny of a nation whose fu-
ture mothers spend their girlhood days
behind the plow, pitching hay and
hauling manure, and what Is to become
of womanly culture and refinement
that grace the home, charm society
and enthuse man to leap to glory In
noble achievements If our daughters
are raised in the society of the ox and
the companionship of the plow
In that strata between the age# of
sixteen and forty five are 95",000 wom-
en working fta farm hands and many
of them with suckling babe# tu*
glng at their breaata. as firenched
tu per 8 pi rut ion, they wield the
and guide the plow. What la to be-
come of that nation where poverty
break* the crowns of the queene of
the home; despair hurls a mother’s
love from Its throne and hunger drives
Innocent children from the schoolroom
to the hoe? ...
The census bureau shows that lou,-
iiOO of these women are forty-five
rears of age and over. There is no
more pitiful sight in civilization than
these saintly mothers of Israel stooped
with ag“, drudging in the field from
suu until sun and at ntght drenching
their dingy pillows with the tears of
despair as their aching hearts take
it all to God in prayer. Civilization
strikes them a blow when It should
give them a crown, and their only
friend is he who broke bread with
beggars and said: “Come unto me all
ve that are weary and heavy laden and
1 will give you rest.’’
Oh, America! The land of the free
and the home of the brave, the
world's custodian of chivalry, the
champion of human rights and the de-
fender of the oppressed—shall we per-
mit our maidens fair to be torn from
the hearthstone by the ruthless hand
of desttny and chained to the plow?
Shall we permit our faithful wives,
whom we covenanted with God to cher
Ish and protect, to be hurled from the
home to the harvest field, and our
mothers dear to be driven from the old
arm chair to the cotton patch?
In rescuing our citizens from the
forces of civilization, can we not apply
to our fair Dixieland the rule of the
sea—“women and children first?
There must bo a readjustment of
the wage Beale of Industry so that the
women can be taken from the field or
given a reasonable wage for her serv-
ice*. Perhaps the issue has never been
fairly raised, but the Farmers’ Uulou,
with a membership of ten million, puts
Its organized forces squarely behind
the issue and wo now enter upon the
docket of civilization the case of “The
