It Always Helps
says Mrs. Sylvania Woodsof Clifton Mills, Ky., in
writing of her experience with Carclui, 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 I was hardly able
to do any of my housework. Afterlaking three bottles
of 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, )
I 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 womanly
ly womanly 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.

Tom Phinney Returns.
During this ride it occurred to Aran
rechten that he had seen nothing of
Tom Phinney since he had sent him
away brusquely the day before. He
wondered not a little at his friend's
prolonged absence, hoped that Tom
was not huffy, and finally concluded
that he had tired of waiting upon an
uncertainty and had gone off upon
some jaunt of his own.
The Man of Iron harkened attentive attentively

the narration prompted any misgivings
he Ehowed them not at all. He consid considered

had finished, then said:

and Josephine could have been made

A furious thunderstorm was raging ;
when the latter was ready to depart,

and instead of returning to the Pow- ;

where he surprised Barnicle with an
explicit injunction not to be permit permitted

poured himself a ctiff peg of brandy.
Having consumed this with evident ;

the door was closed and locked, and
then Barnicle moved with an air of ;
stealth to the desk telephone. ;
Cautiously he seated himself and
noiselessly took down the receiver,
calling for a number in a voice so low
that he was obliged to repeat It. Muf

noiselessly as he had taken it down,
and after switching off the lights stole

writing-table, while Barnicle, tall,
white-haired, cadaverous of counte countenance,

moved quickly about his morning
tasks, and so quietly that the young
man was not aware of his presence.

at the time, and etood listening to the
footfalls growing fainter in the hall.
Presently he heard his master's voice
utter a sharp "Down!" an ensuing
clank and clatter of the elevator door,
and Barnicle broke into activity again.
Hastening over to the writing-table,
he went deftly through a number of
papers. Van Vechten had left sev-

address. She will not write until she

He left instructions that all replies
be delivered at the Powhatan, whither
he betook himself to wait. j
Barely had he' made himself comfort- (

overlooking the street, when the hall
door again opened. He looked round
and beheld Tom Phinney. Reserving
his greeting until Tom drew nearer, he
was about to turn away again, but
