Martin, Tenn^—Mrs. Oennle Scott,
of this city, says: "For years, I was
troubled, mora or leas, with womanly
troubles. Sometimes I would hsve
shortness of breath, and smothering
■pells. I tried several doctors, but
they only gave me temporary relief.
At last I tried Oardul, the woman's
tonic, snd found It to be the medicine
cutting my case. I was quickly re
lieved by It, and now, for the first
time In years, I am very well, snd
enjoy good health.
I praise Cardul for these good re
sults. I recommend the medicine to
my friends, because I know it Is
good, safe and reliable. It helped
me wonderfully, snd I can truthfully
say that Cardul Is the best medicine I
finve ever taken."

tonic, will bring you help, if you will
use It regularly, snd for a reasonable
length of time.
You know you can depend on Car

many who are enthusiastic in its
praise. Cardul has stood the test of
time, the supreme teat of merit.
Cardul Is successful. It has been
found to relieve womanly pain and
build up womanly strength. Try Car
dul: it will help you.

Illustrating the Effect of Food.
The remarkable adaptability of
Grape-Nuts food to stomachs so dis
ordered that they will reject every
thing else, is illustrated by the case
of a woman in Raclae, Wis. (
"Two years ago." the says, "I was
attacked by a stomach trouble so se
rious that for a lons time I could not
take much of any sort of food. Even
the various kinds prescribed by the
doctor produced most acute pain.
"We then got some Grape-Nuts food,
and you can imagine my surprise and
delight when I found that I could eat
it with a relish and without the slight
"When the doctor beard of it he told
me to take several small portions each
day. because he feared I would grow
tired of It as I had of all other food.
-• "But to hia surprise, (and that of
everybody else), I did not tire of
Qrape-Nuts, and became better day by
day, till, after some weeks, my stom
ach entirely recovered and I was sbls
to eat anything my appetite craved.
"My nerves, which had become so
weakened that I feared I would be
come insane, were also restored by
the Grape-Nuts food In connection
with Postum which has become our
table beverage. I appreciate moat
gratefully and thankfully the good that
your food preparations have done me,
and shall be glad to answer any letters

show the sale of actual cotton made
and futures sold.

MAY LOSE THE NORFOLK LINE
Charlotte Must Wake Up—Should
Adhere-to The Request for Ter
minal Sites In This City.
Charlotte.—Charlotte stand a very
good chance to lose the annexation of
the Norfolk Southern. This is what
Mr. W. S. Alexander, chairman of
I the special committee from the Great
er Charlotte Club, haa to say about it
and he speaks not to unduly alarm,
but duly to interest the people and
the business interests of Charlotte in
the opportunity. "The Norfolk South
ern haa not determined to oome to
Charlotte," says Mr. Alexander. "It
can get its line to Knoxvtlle, Tenn.,
more directly by leaving Charlotte
out, but its directors would like to
get a local connection. They think
that the people of Charlotte should
furnish terminal sites if they go to
the additional expense of building a
line from Concord to this city. As
I understand their plans, it ia the aim
of the directors to build from Ral
eigh to Concord, to connect with Ruth
erfordton and then directly run to
Knoxville, Tenn. The building of a
road to Charlotte means that the ad
ditional distance between Concord
and Charlotte must be covered where
as the more direct route would be
from Concord to Rutherfordton.
"I am still hopeful that the busi
ness Interests of Charlotte will re
spond to the call for subscriptions. Wo
hardly expect to raise the full amount
that will be necessary to procure the
terminal sites that are desired, but
we do want to be in a position to
confront the directors of the road
with a respectable donation as an evi
dence of the public Interest In the en
Forsyth County Needs Road Bonds.
An issue of $12f % 000 In bonds tor
construction and maintenance of
roads to Forsyth county is needed,
according to a statement of Mr. W.
L. Spoon, road engineer of Forsyth.
The money is actually needed to pay
off debts of $125,000 which origina
ted in road-building in the last few
years. The county has an income an
nually for road-building of $76,000.
The debt should be gotten rid of first,
says Mr. Spoon, and then the income
of $75,000 a year would make poßoi
ble the construction and maintenance
of a fine system of roads. During
the few months Mr. Spoon has been
road engineer of Forsyth he has done
splendid work, utilizing tnoney in
practical fashion and the county com
missioners and the public generally
are giving him high praise for what
he has already accomplished.
An Attempted Jail Delivery.
The prompt action and forethought
of Jailer John Branch of Wilming
ton and the ready assistance offered
him by one of the negro prisoners are
all that prevented the probable escape
of twenty-five men confined In the
county jail awaiting trial in superior
court. Jailer Branch suffered no in
juries other than some painful bruises
and scratches. Robert Hennigan, a
big negro, held on a charge of store
breaking, was the leader in the at

the prominent Life Insurance Com

made the astonishing statement that
the reason why so many applicants for
Insurance are rejected la because kid
ney trouble ia so common to the
American people, and the large major
ity of applicants do not even auspect
that they have the diseaae.
He atatea that judging from hla own
experience and reports from druggists
who are conatantly In direct touch
with the public, there ia one prepara
tion that haa probably been more suc
cessful in relieving and curing these
llseases than any remedy known. The
mild and healing Influence of Dr. Kll

DISFIGURED WITH CRUSTS
"Some time ago I was taken with
eczema from the top of my head to
my waist. It began with acales on my
body, 1 suffered untold itching and
burning, and could not aleep. I was
greatly disfigured with scales and
crusts. My ears looked as if they had
been most cut off w4th a razor, and
my n«ck was perfectly raw. I suffered
untold agony and pain. I tried two
doctors who said I had eczema in Its
fullest stage, and tßat it could not
bo cured. I then tried other rem
edies to no avail. At last, I tried a set
of the genuine Cutlcura Remedies,
which cured me of eczema when all
sis* had failed, therefore I cannot
pralae them too highly.
"I suffered with eczema about ten
months, but am now entirely cured,
and I believe Cutlcura Remedies are
the best skin cure there is." (Signed)
Miss Mattle J. Shaffer, R. F. D. 1, Box
$, Dancy, Miss., Oct. 27, 1910.
"I had suffered from eczema about
four years when holla began to break
out on different parta of my body. It
started with a fine red raah. My
back was affected first, when it also
spread over my face. The Itching was
almost unbearable at times. I tried
different soaps and salves, but nothing
seemed to help me until I began to
use the Cutlcura Soap and Ointment.
One box of them cured me entirely. 1
recommended them to my sister for
her baby who was troubled with tooth
eczema, and they completely cured her
baby." (Signed) Mrs. F. L. Marber
ger, Drebersville, Pa., Sept. 6, 1910.
Although Cutlcura Soap and Oint

of each, with 32-page book, will be
