SOME WARM STUFF

Editor Star; I notice with inter
est your recent article on "Breaking
Up the Democratic Party," and notice
that you charge the Rev. S. J. Tom
Cat with this attempt in which you
are entirely correct. You state in
your article that the Cattsites and the
republicans have entered into a com combination
bination combination to defeat two of our local
democratic nominees, Alfred Ayer
and P. H. Nugent and that all good
loyal democratic voters should, stand
by the nominees. I am and have al always

both state and national. As is Frank
Adams, independent candidate for
sheriff, so is the Rev. Tom Cats both
bolters of the democratic party, and
I am informed and believe it to be
tiue that P. H. Nugent, this the dem democratic
ocratic democratic party's nominee for clerk of
the circuit court, has contributed
money to the campaign fund of the
Rev, S. J. Tom Cats, the bolter and
independent candidate for governor
against the. regular nominee, W. V.
Knott; that the said Nugent has stat stated

Knott if he should be the nominee
of the democratic party or be so de declared
clared declared the party's nominee; that he
will support Frank Adams, bolter and
independent candidate for sheriff
against Galloway, regular democratic
nominee, that the said Nugent has
stated in the conduct of the people's
office he holds given to him by the
white democratic party of this county
that he preferred to deal with or
transact the business of his office with
a negro than a white man!
It is street talk that the present
county judge, W. E. Smith, is offer offering
ing offering to bet (betting on elections being
prohibited by law) that the Rev. S. J.
Tom Cats will be elected governor
and that he, the said Judge Smith
when asked declines to state whether
he expects to vote for W. V. Knott,
regular democratic nominee or in intends

Cats and Frank Adams, both bolters
of the democratic party! .
So please tell me wherein I, a dem democrat,
ocrat, democrat, should vote for P. H. Nugent
for clerk or Smith for judge, when it
is apparent that they are intending to

When Mr. Catts was declared the

matter which it would have been bet better
ter better policy to let alone. Having passed
the resolutions, the committee should
have stuck to them, but a number of
the members became frightened and
at a second meeting made a half-way
change that made matters worse in instead
stead instead of better. Then four prominent
democrats ran against Catts, dividing
the party strength, and not one of
them had the good sense or patriotism
to get out of the race. Knott undoubt undoubtedly

second choice votes and is honestly the
party nominee, but a 'considerable

was wrong to contest. By what course

conclusion, it is impossible to dis discover,
cover, discover, but they have done so, and the
result is in their hands. If-there are
enough of them, added to his primary
supporters, to outvote the organized
democrats (and it looks like there
are), Catts will be elected.
There is not much doubt the second
district will return Frank Clark to
Congress. He is an able man, valua valuable

the people of his district would be
very silly if they did not return him in

Huber for assessor, Neville for clerk

the town at large after the affair
above enumerated was dismissed. The
boys, both old and young, covered the
whole town, laying waste as they
went. It was the same scene enacted
in Belleview that was being enacted in
fifty thousand little towns all over the
United States, so therefore it is use useless
less useless to chronicle further details.
Mr. Eugene Knight, a prominent
resident of Eastlakei passed thru
Belleview one day last week on his
way to the Shady section, to consum consummate

that he was a persistent reader of the

Sunny Jim had all the sunshine
knocked out of him one day last week.
As he was wending his way southward
from Belleview, headed for other
points south, figuring in his mind what
excuses he could offer his customers
for the last two or three advances in
shoe leather, all of a sudden his little
tin lizzie made that peculiar noise
well known to all motorists, that
sounds exactly like the smashing up
of dollars into little bits, and came to
a dead stop. And then it rained, and
then Sunny Jim directed the chauffeur
to lead him back to Belleview, and in
the course of time they arrived, foot
sore and weary. They told their
troubles to Walter Nelson and he
cranked up old Nancy and towed them
in and the bill was two and a half
days for all hands and the garage.
And that was when Sunny Jim wore
bis sunniest smile.
As they were coming over the rails
headed for Belleview, at Washington,
Mr. Frank Haviland on a scout for
breakfast bumped into Mr. Sands

train together from New York with without

It Always Helps
says M-s. Sylvania Woods, o! Clifton Mills, Ky., in
writing o! 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. I was hardly able
to do any of my housework. After taking 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 trlaL 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.
