says Mrs. Charles L. Lacroix, of this

could not alt up and I could not lie
down. J couldn't sleep and at times
I would have dreadful vomiting
spells. The aches and pains seemed
to cover my whole body.
"I had taken Cardui, off and on,
since 1903. It had always done mo

‘‘One night, my husband brought
me home six bottles of Cardui and
I began to take It. I could tell that
I was Improving from tho first bot

tonic that would build me up and
strengthen me where I was weak

Essex Relieves The
Strain Of Driving
Practically all of the new models
embody features designed to reduce
driving strain. Noteworthy among
thetp is the now Essex which is
equipped with an automatic chok
ing device. This innovation elimi
nates a good deal of the annoy
ance usually experienced when driv
ing in winter weather.
Instead of constantly choking hts
motor after starting it on a cold'
morning, the driver of the new Es
sex need only pull out the choke
button half way and from then on
the choking action Is entirely au
tomatic and closes when the motor
becomes thoroughly warmed. This
is accomplished by means of a bal
anced butterfly valve on the air
taken into the carburetor. The
valve Is opened gradually by the
force of suction as the speed of the
motor is Increased, providing the
proper fuel mixture when a steady
driving speed is attained.

The remarkable publlo acceptance

Is cited as one of the outstanding
features of the past year in the
Introduced at the lowest price
ever reached by a six cylinder car,
the Whippet six went even fur

bearing crank-shaft, and even to
day the new Whippet six is out
standing as tho world’s lowest pric
ed six with a seven-bearing crank
shaft. This notable advancement
centered the eyes of the entire in
dustry on the Whippet six and its
subsequent public acceptance and
.high standard .of performance were
chief factors in creating a demand
even greater than was anticipated.
In Wtlly-Overland's introduction
of the superior Whippet six, many
of the features of the former mod
