James JB. MoNamara pleaded
RQiUy to murder m the first de

court here today. His brother
John J. MoNamra, secretary of
the International Association of
Bridge and Structural Iron
Workers, entered a plea of hav
ing dynamited the Llewellyn
Iron Works in Los Angeles on
Christmas Day, 1910.
James B. McNamara's confes
ion clears np absolutely the
tragedy of the explosion and fire
which at 1:07 o'clock on the
morning of October 1, 1910
wrecked the p'ant of The Lop
Angel9s Times at First and Broad

Word that J. McNamara was
coming caused the first ripple of
excitement. He had not visited
the court room since October 11,
when the trials were begun and
the case had raached a climax.

Blood Was Wrong
All women, who suffer from the aches and pains, due
to fernste aliments, are urged to try Cardui, the .reliable,
scientific, tonic remedy, for women. Cardui acts .promptly,
yet gently, and without bad effects, on the womanly: system,
relieving pain, building up strength, regulating the. system,
and toning up the nerves. During the past half century,
thdusands of ladies have written to tell of the quick curative
results ftey obtained, from the use of this well-known medicine.
Mrs. Jane CaTJehaa suffered from womanly trouble for
nearly ten yesrs. In a letter from Whiteville, N. C, she;
says: MI was not able to do my own housework. My
stomach was weak, and my blood was wrong. I had back
ache, and was very weak. I tried several doctors, but they
did me no good. I used Cardui for 3 or 4 months, and now
I am in the best health I have ever been. I can never praise
Cardui enough." It is the best tonic, for women.
Whether seriously sick, or simply weak, try Cardui
