InMt on Delag konn What the
State Department Does With the
Secret Service Fund
Washington. Dec. 7. Criticism of
the president and secretary of state
for their interpretation of the statute
governing the secret service fund for
the state department was made by
Representative Hamlin, of Missouri, In
a speech in the House yesterday. Mr.
Hamlin is chairman of the committee
on state department expenditures,
which has "been making an Investiga Investigation
tion Investigation of this matter.
In six years said Mr. Hamlin, de department
partment department officials had expended $732, $732,-981,
981, $732,-981, secretly, averaging $122,000 a year
when the secret fund appropriated for
such a purpose was only $90,000 a
yea. He called upon the House to
amend the statute to prevent the fund
becoming the "very haven of official
piracy."
"I have found enough out about this
secret fund," declared Mr. Hamlin, "to
make me anxious to know how many
thousand dollars have been expended
each year on portraits, pleasure trips,
dollar diplomacy, increased salaries
and other things that Congress never
contemplated should be paid from the
secret fund.
Last year we spent nearly $200,000
when there were no war clouds on the
horizon. The president, while bearing
the olive branch in one hand, with the
other was pulling the money out of
the treasury at the rate of $483 a day,
including Sundays. We are told the
money went for secret purposes but
where it went only God and the little
crowd at the White House and state
department know."

Its very upsetatory on the nerves of
school boards and high school prin principals
cipals principals to have a young lady teacher
give up her high and noble calling
in the middle of a term to marry a
mere man. Prof. Brinson says there
should be a closed season for young
lady school teachers and that it should
be a penal offense for a man to make
love to one before the first of May or
after the first of September.

There is such a thing as being too
up to date, as one of our young friends
has sorrowfully discovered. He re received
ceived received a good education and once
wrote a tolerable hand, but of late
.years has taken to the typewriter and
does all his chlrographical work on
it, except signing receipts and draw drawing
ing drawing checks. This is all very well but
one evening a few nights ago, he
found himself obliged to wait three
hours for a train at a hotel in a small
town some forty miles from Ocala.
Now this young man, like most other
young men, has a hucksie-ducksie, to
whom every day for the last six
months he has indited on the type typewriter
writer typewriter a letter as long as a well rope.
Finding himself in this lonesome
place, it was natural for him to .think
of his ducksie-daddle, and as no type typewriter
writer typewriter was handy he, thru the med medium
ium medium of the hotel stationery and a
fountain pen, poured out his heart to
her to the amount of ten pages. The
train coming about the time he start started
ed started on the eleventh page, he climbed
aboard and sought to beguile his ride
home by reading what he had writ written.
ten. written. And then he made the painful
discovery that he had hammered a
typewriter so long that his hand had
forgotten how to write, and he
couldn't read what he had written.
Being more reasonable than most
men, he inferred that no one else
could read it; and that is why people
living on the line of the Seaboard
from Hawthorne to Island Grove
thought a young snowstorm had pass passed

night.

My Doctor Said
"Try Cardui," writes Airs. Z. V. Spell, of Hayne, N. C
"I was in a very low state of health, and was not able to
be up and tend to my duties. I did try Cardui, and soon
began, to feel better. y I got able to be up and help do my
housework. I continued to take the medicine, and now I
am able to do my liousework and to care for my children,
and I feel as though I could never praise Cardui enough
for the benefits I have received."

TAKE

The
WomaifcTonic

Cardui is successful, because it is made especially for
women, and acts specifically on. the womanly constitution.
Cardui does one thin& and does it well. That explains
the great success which it has had, during the past 50 years,
in helping thousands of weak and ailing women back to
health and happiness.
If you are a woman, feel tired, dull, and are nervous,
