It Always Helps
says Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky., in
writing of her experience with Cardui, the woman's
tonic She says further: "Before I began to use
Cardui, my back and head would hurt so bad, I
thought the pain would kill me. 1 was hardly able
to do any of my housework. After taking three bottles
cf Cardui, I began to feel like a new woman. I soon
gained 35 pounds, and now, I do all my housework,
as well as run a big water mill.
1 wish every suffering woman would give
The Woman's Tonic
a trial. I still use Cardui when I feel a little bad,
and it always does me good."
Headache, backache, side ache, nervousness,
tired, worn-out feelings, etc., are sure signs of woman
ly trouble. Signs that you need Cardui, the woman's
tonic You cannot make a mistake in trying Cardui
for your trouble. It has been helping weak, ailing
women for more than fifty years.

OLDEST CHRISTMAS CUSTOM
Decorating Houses, Churches anft
Streets With Evergreen Popular
Since Dawn of History.
PERHAPS the very oldest of all
Christmas customs is that of
decorating our houses, churches
and streets with evergreens,
At the very dawn of history began the
worship of the trees, or forest worship,
and the groves were man's first tem
ples. All our instincts, our passion about
nature, are forest memories, for forest
worship was universal.
In later times to each god some tree
was dedicated: Apollo had the laurel,
Jupiter the oak, and Greece for ages
had its sacred groves.
The forest worshipers could not
worship without giving, because to
worship is to give, and these boughs
and garlands were the oldest gifts of
man. Before he had learned to shape
offerings of his own rude skill he could
bring to the sacred trees and hang up
on them the first flowers and greenery
of spring and the perfect fruits o au
tumn. These gifts, remember, were aeverr
as with us, decorations; they ware sac
The Romans, with a fine eye for
beauty, used to garland their temple
and hom.es and gathering places and
even the big Coliseum with boughs of
green and ropes of flowers. This par
ticular custom was received by the
Christians with a special sort of ap
proval, recalling, as it did, the fact
that our Lord entered Jerusalem amid
the strewn branches of the multitude.
We must not forget the welcome and
lovely mistletoe and holly. Indeed,
Christmas without them would not,
with us, seem quite complete.
Mistletoe was for ages regarded as
sacred by the old British pagans the
Druids and was surrounded with
great mystery and sentiment, little un
derstood by us..
It was supposed to possess healing
powers and that it could ward off evil
spirits. The reverence paid to this
little parasite seems to have been re
stricted to it, only, when It was found
growing on the sacred oak trees In the
Once every year the Druid high
priest cut it with a golden sickle,
blessed it and distributed the sprays
among the people, praying aloud that
each one who received it might receive
divine blessings, of which it was the
symbol. Having received the sprays,
the people hung them above the doors
to propitiate the gods during the year.
The only remaining significance at
tached today to the mistletoe is the
idea that If a maiden Is not kissed
under it on Christmas day she will go
unwed throughout the year. This idea
goes so far back into the past that one
cannot trace it. f
It is because the mistletoe is rare
and not easy to get that we found
and brought forward the holly, which
though lovely, is used only as a sub
stitute for the mistletoe. New York
JUST THE THING.
Wifey I wish I had a flying ma
chine; then perhaps I could get
through with my Christmas shopping.
