GOULD NOT WALK
And For Four Years, Could Not
Stand Without Support.
Chillicothe, Ohio "Nothing pleases
me more than to speak a word of
praise for Cardui, the woman's tonic,"
says Mrs. Ed Davis, of this town,
"for I firmly believe that it snatched
me from the grave.
I have been married 14 years, and
had two children. After the youngest
was born, I was not able to walk, and
for four years, I was not strong enough
to stand on my feet five minutes at
the time, without something to support
Nothing seemed to do me any good,
until, finally, I commenced using
Cardui, the woman's tonic. I only used
about four bottles, but, today I am
well, can do my work, and walk as far
as I want to.
I can never praise Cardui enough,
and my neighbors cannot get done
wondering at the change in me."
You, too, can depend on Cardui, be
cause Cardui is a gentle, harmless,
vegetable tonic, that can do yeu noth
ing but good.
Prepared from vegetable herbs, Car
dui has a specific effect on the woman
ly constitution, and puts strength
where it is needed.

' London, May 24. In an impromptu
speech in the house of commons to
night on the question of peace and
the propriety of "employing the
American press as a platform," sub
jects unexpectedly raised by Arthur
Ponsonby, liberal member of Stirling,
Scotland, in a strong address attack
ing the government for allowing
diplomatic etiquette to stand in the
way of possible peace pourpalers, Sir
Edward Grey, the British foreign sec
retary, set aside all ideas that peace
negotiations were possible at the
present stage, and plainly reiterated
that the position of the allies in no
way was changed.
Sir Edward declared that it was
impossible to consider terms of peace
without a previous agreement be
tween the entente allies. Further he
expressed the decided opinion that
the hostilites had not yet reached a
stage where it was possible to talk
of peace as the German public was
constantly being fed "with lies" by
Mr. Ponsonby's reference to the use
of the American press "as a plat
form" was the outgrowth of a recent
interview with Sir Edward Grey.
Would Be Mere Pedantry.
Sir Edward in replying to this at
tack, while admitting that important
disclosures of policy ought first to be
made to parliament, argued that a
crisis might arise during the war
when considerations of etiquette
should not be allowed to stand in the
way. He contended that since Ger
man statesmen constantly were giv
ing interviews and statements to the
American press, it would bs mere
pedantry which would hinder British
statesmen from countering these
statements in the interests of their
Mr. Ponsonby argued in favor of
countenancing peace possibilities and
against prolonging the war merely
for the sake of obligations to Great
! Britain's allies. The speaker said that
if the war had to be continued until
Constantinople fell or until obliga
tions to allies were fulfilled, the
country ought to be told what those
obligations are, if there was no essen
tial difference between Germany and
Great Britain, and no such obliga
tions the government ought to take
the earliest opportunity to press for
a termination of the war.
Time Not Yet Arrived.
Sir Edward Grey in replying point
ed out that the interview contained
no new declarations. He had no pre
pared speech or statement to make,
but he said that if he thought the
German government or German opin
ion had reached the point where the
allied governments could bring a
peace compatible with their desires
nearer by making speeches about
peace, he would make dozens of them.
The foreign minister added, the tim
has not yet arrived, and the allies
were bound by common obligations
not to put forward any terms of
peace except by mutual agreement.
Mr. Ponsonby attacked the govern
ment's diplomacy. He said the peace
of Europe would depend on the capa
city of statesmen for surveying the
great problems in a broad spirit. The
insularity which had characterized
British diplomacy in the past con
stituted the real danger. The gov
ernment must recognize that the war
had reached a deadlock and at the
same time the superior position of
Great Britain must be recognized.
The latter was due to the spirit and
valor of the people and not to statesmen.
MUNICIPAL MOVIES MAY
SOON COME INTO VOGUE
One Kansas Town Already Owns ths
Having rounded up 102 municipal
lighting plants, 17 gas plants and more
than 200 water plants, Kansas is now
after municipal ownership of Its mo
tion picture theaters. One Kansas
towu already owns Its motion picture
house and refuses to let any private
competitor come in. Three other towns
are arranging for municipally owned
and conducted movie houses.
Kausas believes in municipal owner
ship not because of any theoretical
views, but because of actual experi
ence, says the Kansas City Star. Com
munity after community has entered
the field of electric lighting, for exam
ple, and without exception they have
lowered their rates and improved their
service. Ail the publicity of utility mo
nopolists avails nothing in the face of
the concrete facts as Kansas has dis
covered them. You can't tell a Kansan
that municipal ownership is a failure
and get away with it when the city
light plant which he patronizes has cut
his bills in two and given him better
Kansas has a public utility commis
sion, but there is no "certificate of con
venience and necessity" provision, as
In Wisconsin, which gives the private
company in the field an everlasting mo
nopoly and a perpetual franchise. Cor
poration "regulations" tried to tack
such a provision on to the Kansas law
nt the last session of the Kansas legis
lature, but the municipal ownership
people in Kansas proved too much for
If he doesn't like the way the public
utility corporation does business the
Kansnn demands as an inalienable
right that he be free to tackle the busi
ness himself. The welfare of a whole
community is rore to him than the fic
titious "right" of any eastern capitalist
to bleed a people indefinitely merely
because he has an Investment made
originally for that purpose.
If the Individual capitalist can do
business on the same basis as the city
and he usually can if he is forced by
competition to do so he is welcome to
continue ia operation. If he can't he
may seek other investments in other
states, where there is greater reverence
for "widowed and orphaned" stockhold
ers and the divinity of 7 per cent.
