British and French Attack in
TEUTONS OBTAIN LITTLE BEST BETVi
HAMMEft BLOWS OF
Without regard to the highly un-
fcjvorable weather conditions and in a
tiurprisingly. short time since their
last thrust, the British and French
early this morning, launched another
attack in Belgium. They struck east
and northeast of Ypres in about the
same section of th Britfsh victory of
last Thursday. Both London andt
Paris in brief reports say the battle
is developing satisfactorily for the
Allies. A considerable force of French
troops participated in the Flanders
drive July 31st but since then most
of the major movements have been on
the British front. It is believed the
time is now considered opportune for
bringing the French line more to the
north on a level with the British
front, which has been steadily pushed
forward. The drive this morning is
in the direction of the Roulers-Menln
railroad about five miles from the
point of the British wedge af Brood

Mr. Clark was living at the time in
Ocala and conducting two of the
leading hotels in that thriving and
sport-loving city. The time was away
back in 1889, when baseball was in

many of its citizens possessed a

which led them to turn as naturally to

and the citrus industry, of which
Ocala was the center at that date was
not far behind as a wealth producer.

Of course Ocala had its ball club,
and equally of course it must be the
best that could be had. The best local
players were pressed into the club,
and then, in order to maintain its
prestige, it had to reach out into the

Among those who came to them in

to be enough to condemn their use,

Across the azure sky,

Turns to say good-bye;
In her gold-red tunic,

With untarnished courage
In her wedding mien.

Answers to her gaze,
And her eyes are pensive
With remembered days.
Yet, with cheek ensanguined,
Gay at heart shoe goes
On the great adventure
Where the north wind blows.

From Three Years Suffering. Sayi
Cardci Made Her Well
. Texas City, Tex.--ln an interesting
statement, Mrs. G. H. Schill, of this town,
says: "For three years I suffered untold
agony with my head. I was unable to
do any of my work.
I just wanted to sleep all the time, for
that was the only ease 1 could get, when
I was asleep. I became a nervous wreck
just from the awful suffering with my
I was so nervous that the least noise
-would ma?:3 me jump out of my bed. I
had no energy, and was unable to do
anything. My son, a young boy, had to
do all my household duties.
I was not able to do anything until 1
took Cardui. I took three bottles in all,
and it surely cured me of those awful
headaches. That has been three years
ago, and I know the cure is permanent,
for I have never had any headache since
taking Cardui. .
Nothing relieved me until I took Cardui.
It did wonders for me."
Try Cardui for ycur troubles made
from medicinal ingredients recommended
in medical books as being of benefit in
female troubles, and 40 years of use has
prov?fithat the books are right. Begin
fekiug Cardui today. NC-134
