I Health £ About k Gone . Ij Many thousands •! women suffering from womanly trouble, have been benefited by the use of Cardui, the woman's ■ tonic, according to letters we receive, similar to this one from Mrs. Z.V. Spell, of Hayne, N. C. "1 coultß not stand on my feet, and! IV Just suffered terribly,'" she says. "As my suf fering was so great, antf he had tried other reme-. dies, Dr. had us get Cardui. . « I began improving, and It cured me. 1 know, and my doctor knows, what Car dul did for me, for my nerves and health were about gone." TAKE CARDUI The Woman's Tonic She writes further: " I ra am In splendid health ~. can do my work. 1 feel I Ife owe It to Cardui, for I was In dreadful- condition." If you are nervous, run down and weak, or suffer from headache, backache, etc., every month, try Cardui. Thousands of women praise this medl- cine for the good It has done them, and many physicians who have used Cardui successfully with Pfc their women patients, for years, endorse this medl- BL cine. Think what it means to be In splendid health, like Mrs. Spell. Oive Cardui a trial. 1^ N All Druggists W BROWNING GUN FOR | AIBCRAFT IS a K.

In March and April the secretary of agriculture, on recommendation of the office of public roudH and rural engi neering, approved 212 Mate rond-bulld- Ing project* Involving more thun 2,500 miles of highways under the federal aid road act. The estimated cost of these Improvements to the states Is about *15,000,000. The federal uld al lowed Is more than $5,000,000. Bottlers of soft drinks In the United States may save,approximately 50,000 lons of sugar annuully by using other sweetening materials, according to In vestigations by specialists of the bu reau of chemistry, United States de partment of agriculture. The bureau of' chemistry Is preparing to furnish bottlers with sweetening formulas that, will ullow the uctuul sugar content In soft drinks to be cut to 50 per ctut or less and at the same time will preserve the cintouiary taste of the beverages. Starch sugar, starch sirup, maltose sir up uud honey are the substitutes used. The army ordnance department has negotiated approximately 12,000 con tracts since this country entered the wur.

The magultude of the task of the ordnance department financially Is evi denced by the disbursement recently In a single day of more than $25,000,000 on ordinary' contract Dis bursements for the mouth of April, 1018, ran to $350,884,803, an interesting amount as compared with the $5,069,- 204 disbursed by the ordnance depart ment in April, 1017. These disburse ments wero msde at the ordnance of fice In Washington. Amounts dis bursed at government arsenals are not Included. One check recently drawn by the ord nance disbursing officer for ordnance material was for $18,750,000. One re quisition made recently by this same officer on the treasury was for $166,- 000,000. This Is the largest single requi sition ever made by auy United Htates disbursing officer. Prior to two months ago, before the ordnance department established Ita 11 district office* which zoned the country to expedite payments to contractors anil relieve the strain upon the main office In Washington, the disbursing officer at Washington signed from 800 to 3,000 checks a day. RecuuKe of thu Instruction of gas of ficer* who have been at the various vamps for tbe lust six months, the troops which are going forward to France are well pouted on methods of combating gas attacks, says a state ment authorized by the war depart ment. A group of Itrltlsh gas officers hns been In this country since last Hummer, One of these men Ims been at each of the training camps, advising and ns»l«tlng the division gas officer. All the men going overseas are imp plied with gas helmets. Under the di vision gas officers and their assistants, the men are drilled In the use of masks, taught ty>w to detect the pres ence ot gas, and given actual experi ence with different sorts ot gases. Mimic gas shells and cloud attacks, used often at night In connection with high explosives, help to make the train ing realistic.

The number now Is approximately 29,000, an Increase of 800 per cent. While this represents a tremendous expansion, the Increase In the army Itself has been more than 1,000 per cent. Only four out of every 100 officers In the service were In the army at the time the war began. The gn* defense service Is now msnu facturlug about 0,000 horse gas masks per day.

Page who has Juat returned from a conference of State Food Admlnlatratora with Herbert Hoover and his staff at Washington. Mr. Page brings back from Washington the. Impression and Information that all governmental agencies 'are settling down to hard work In anticipation of a war of at least two or three years' dnratlon. All agencies an profiting by their past experience and smoother running and more effective operation may be anticipated from now on. To Employ Inspectors- One Important feature of Mr. Page's new plan calls for the appointment of a number of Inspectors who will divide theii' entire time to investigations of alleged violations and to the examination of bakera, accounts and invoices and other' records of wholesale and retail dealers, bottling works, drug stores Ice cream manufacturing plants, soda fountains, flour mills, cotton seed oil mills, etc. When the new system of Inspection Is effective the elaborate re ports which have been required of all licensed dealers or manufacturers will b every grestly simplified. The extneslon of th organization will Impose so many additional administrative duties upon Mr. Page and executive secre tary Lucas that an Increase In the office will alao bs necessary. Sugar Regulation Rigid. In no Instance will there be a greater "tightening up" or more rigid en forcement of regulations than with those that apply to sugar. Mr. Page's office Is already receiving from refiners and shipper* of sugar statementi showing in detail every ahlpment of sugar Into North Carolina. In the imme diate future every dealer who handles sugar will be required to keep an abso lute record of sll sales of sugar from one pound up. No stated rports from these particular records will be Required but such stated reports from these particular records will be required but such record's will be subject to exami nation by Food Administration Inspectors at any and all timea. All commercial users of sugar who disregard the rationing plan of sugar Instituted May 15th will be disciplined. Certfllcates are being issued only foi sugar supplies up'to July first and many commercial uaera have failed to apply for blanks upon which to maks their sworn statements and to apply for certificates becsuse they have already reached or exceeded thir allot ment of sugar. Not only will such users have their supplies equalized ufter July first but In the absence of their sworn statementa by June 16th, they will be penalised as well. The Food Administration demands of all commercial users of sugar explanation of their status not later than June 16th, and m> car tlflcates will be Issued after June 16th except under such circumstances as will satisfy the Food Administration that the dflay In making sworn state ment and spplylng for certificates was Justified—and it Is Indicated that some tall explaining will be necessary to bring about thla conviction. Wholesalers or Jobbers who sell sugar er sugar eyrup to commercial users without receiving In exchange certificates Issued by the Food Admin tration will have their licence* revoked. Retailer* who make »~>ct» *al*a wllj be blacklisted and be put out of bualness by that process. doing After Profiteer*. The rule* and regulation* of tbe Food Administration Vfc-' retard to margins of profit on foodstuffs will henceforth be more rlgdly enforced and throogh the aiilatance ot the Inspector* who will be pat in tbe field, profit* will be checked from.the end nearest tbe consumer. Where the retail price ot a oommodlty teems to be unreasonable the retailer will be called upon t« sbow hie marfln. If hta margin Is reasonable the Inspector will go to the wholeealer and If his margin waa reasonable the pursuit will continue to the manufacturer or miller or other producer. It baa not been practicable to follow this course In tbe past because of tbe lack ot force to make tbe Inve* ligations. To stimulate and render effective the new system, coasumers are now In Tited to report apparently excessive prices to their County or Township Pood Administrator and retailers who are charged apparently excessive prloee by wholesaler! or Jobbers are Invited to bring such prices to tbe attention of tbe same authorities. One class of dealers and millers the Food Administration proposes to go after comprises millers and dealers in co>n meal and other cereaj substitutes who have taken advantage of the flour shortage and "60-60" combination sale to extort unreasonable profits on com meal and similar products. The wheat conservation program haa been hide back by profiteers In corn meal an* other ooreal substitutes and these gentlemen evldntly have something com ing to tbem from the Food Administration. 100% Effectiveness "Tbe Food Administration In Nortb Carolina and throughout the United States haa determined to make itself 100% effective," declared Mr. Page in discussing tbe situation. "In every instance tho legitimate Interest of pro ducer, consumer and dealer will bo conserved, but wilful violations of Food Administration rules and regulations, designed aa war measures to assist out Government In winning this war, will not be tolerated and will b« punished te the extent of tho law. Our new system of inspection, relnforoed by oui authority to require special reports of any dealer, claaa of dealer* or lndl vlduals at any time, and the authority of our Inepectors to examine books accounts, invoices and other records of all dealers will enable u* to promptly ■pot violation* and punish offender*. This greatar effectlveaes* will re dound to the benefit of patriotic and honest and unselfish produaers and dealers as well as ooa*uaer*." IMMIS OF FLOUR IS TABOO STATS FOOD ADMINISTRATOR HENRY A. PAGE CALL* UPON DEALERS TO REFRAIN FROM ORDERING FURTHER FLOUR FROM OUTSIDE MILLS—"NORTH CAROLINA HAS HER SHARE." Raleigh.—Further Importation* of flour Into North Carolina until the next barvait art In effect forbidden by State Food Administrator Henry A. Page. Tile practice of flour conservation In North Carolina has been so general, and the saving so great, that a largo number of the small mills which have here tefore been able only to supply the Immediate communities have accumulated eonalderable quantltlee of flour which Is available for ahlpplng to other mar kets It Is the purpoee of Mr. Page to divert thla flour to those markets la North Carolina which have heretofore Imported flour from the larger mills oatslde the State, which, almost without exception, are la position to pack Sour tor export and anpply the demand* of the Army and Nary and our Allies The Food Administration will assist In bringing together those mills which have flour for sale and the dealers In other section* of the State who dastro to purchase U. Mr. Page's statsment Inaugurating the new pUi Is as fpUowi: "Baaed oa the total supply la the United States for home consumption, aad coaslderlag the decreased coasumptloa. by our people, there Is within the borders of North CaroUaa our share aad more of flour. Thla belag true, 1 am ralllag oa the wholesale aad retail mershaats of North CaroUaa to relrati from Beadle; furtbec order* for flour to mills outside of North Carolina.

Where merchants In some ■•art* of North CaroUaa could secure flour from outside mills cheaper thaa •bey caa from North Carolina mills which have flour available, I aa going to aah them te take the home flour evea at a higher price. "I do not preload to say that there la sufflciaat flour la North Carolina to eapply anything like the normal demaad. What I do ateaa to say Is that It we are to supply oar Alilee with the quantity they must have, we haye aa much flour la North CaroUaa as ws are eatltled to aad as much la proportion aa the people of say other State or section—aad we have no right to more." Mr Page** requeet to flour dealers to rsfrala from parohastng flour out side the State Is not aa order but It Is very clearly Indicated la the office S he ro-j Administration that all dealers wlli we expected to compl/ with the the request snd that any dlsregsrd of the requeet will bo looked upon with sstrems disfavor by the Food Admlalstrstloa.
