HER DEATH NEAR
So Everyone Thought, But Is Now
Well And Stronger Than Ever.
Newton, Mo. "I can certainly
speak a good word for Cardui, the
woman's tonic," says Mrs. Jay
Iihoades, of this town. "I suffered for
12 years with my right side, and the
last three years, I would have a bad
spell with it about every three months.
I would get so bad off, every one
would think I could not live.
The first of July, I began taking
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I
haven't had a bad spell since soon
after I began taking it.
Before taking Cardui, I was so ir
regular, and, at times, I could hardly
stand on my feet. Now, I can clean
house, and do any kind of work with
out its hurting me in the least.
Cardui will surely do for other
women, what it did for me. I arn tell
ing all my neighbors about it."
Cardui is a mild and effective tonic
for women, that has been found, by
actual use, during more than 50 years,
to relieve the ailments to which all
women are peculiarly liable.
Card-u-i has helped thousands.

Cites Republican Prophecies as to Re
sult of Democratic Rule
Neligh, Neb., Sept. W. Senator
Hitchcock's audiences made pr.rt of
his speech for him at Tilden, Oakdale
and Neiligh today, this being the first
day's run of the senator's second
week's campaign tour for re-election.
The biggest meeting of the day
was at the court nouse in Neligh,
where 200 voters were gathered. J.
D. Hatfield, 80 years old, one of the
best known democrats in this section
of the state, presided.
In each speech Senator Hitchcock
stopped a moment to exhibit a post
card sent out by the republican state
committee in 1912 and given him at
Bloomfield last week by a farmer v. ho
had saved it. The card pictured the
various products of the farm and
gave prices in 1912, prophesying ruin
and desolation in case Wwodrovv Wil
son should be elected president in
"This card gives the price of oats
at 30 cents," said Senator Hitchcock.
"Will someone tell me what is being
paid here now?"
"Thirty-eight cents," came a voice
from the crowd. "Not much ruin here
because of Woodiow Wilson's admin
istration,"' commented the senator.
"The card quotes the price of hogs
in 1912 at $9..r0 a hundred pounds.
What do hogs bring here today?''
"Ten twenty-five," a man in the
"Not much ruin there," repeated
Senator Hitchcock. "Now, how about
corn. It is listed here at 05 cents."
"And now it's 75," shouted a listen
er before the senator had time to ask
"And wheat,' continued Senator
Hitchcock, "is listed here at 90 cents.
What does it bring now?"
"A dollar and thirty-eight cents,"
called a farmer.
"There you see what the republi
cans prophesied four years ago," con
tinued Senator Hitchcock. "They told
you ruin would follow Wilson's elec
tion. You yourself, here today, have
declared that prophesy false. You
can't be frightened again into voting
against your convictions."
Hit With the Crowds.
The informal catechism made a hit
with the crowds, as attested by ap
plause and laughter. "Bless you, boy,
you're all right, just like your daddy
was in his time," was the unusual
greeting Senator Hitchcock received
from E. W. Wright of Neligh, an aged
man who rode clear to Tilden and
heard all three of the day's speeches.
"I knew your father when he was
a senator," Mr. Wright explained. "I
was a republican then, but I have been
a democrat since 1888, and I'm proud
At Fremont, en route to Norfolk
by a morning train, Senator Hitch
cockmet State Superintendent of Pub
lic Instruction A. O. Thomas on the
station platform. Mr. Thomas, a re
publican candidate for re-election, was
returning from Madison county, where
he had dedicated a new consolidated
"Let me tell you that your demo
cratic platform on the consolidated
rural school is right," he said. "It
should make the party many votes."
The republican platform is silent
on the issue.
Answered by Colorado Bankers
On August 21, 1916, a letter was sent by the Chairman of the Dry Federation of
Plattsmouth to 36 banks in cities in Colorado, having from 3,000 to 10,000 popula
tion, asking for an answer to the question: "Will you give me your unprejudiced
opinion of the effect of prohibition on business and finance."
The Commercial Savings Bank, of Trinidad, Colorado, answered as follows:
"Our deposits July 1st, 1915, were $670,000
" " 1916, " 870,000
An increase of $200,000. We do not give prohibition credit for all this increase,
but we are positive it had a whole lot to do with it. After prohibition went into ef
fect" January 1st, 1916, we opened 33 new accounts the first week. The merchants
claim collections are much better since Colorado went dry, and we can back up that
The Farmers' Nation Bank, of Longmont, Colorado, answered:
"My unprejudiced opinion is that State Wide Prohibition is beneficial to business.
Our deposits have increased during the past year $300,000."
The First National Bank, of Salida, Colorado, answered:
"Our local merchants with whom I have talked from time to time, those who sell
the necessities of life such as groceries, meats, dry goods, etc., say that since prohi
bition has been in effect, their bills and accounts are better and more promptly paid,
and the bank accoonts of a number of these merchants bear out the statement thus
made to us."
The First National Bank, of Boulder, Colorado, answered:
"There is not a merchant in our town, no matter how broad and liberal he is in
his views, who does not favor prohibition, and would vote for it at every opportunity.
Not a person in this bank voted for prohibition when the town went dry, and today
every one would vote for prohibition."
The First National Bank, of La Junta, Colorado, answered:
"I can say most emphatically that it is my unprejudiced opinion that the State
has never experienced the loss of a single dollar because of the State Wide Prohibi
tion, but on the contrary, it has been of incalculable value. The business men of
Trinidad were oppossed to prohibition, but when, during the coal strike the saloons
were closed by military authorities and they had a chance to try it awhile, they were
converted to the other side. It is the unanimous sentiment of business men every
where that collections are better and they lose less in bad accounts under prohibition
than during the sway of the saloon. La Junta is a railroad town and I have been
cashier of this bank for twenty-five years, and I can testify to these facts most em
phatically." The First National Bank, of Canon City, Colorado, answered:
"While I personally did not favor it, I am willing to admit that I think it is a ben
efit to the State."
First National Bank, of Trinidad, Colorado, answered:
"During the campaign a great many people who owned real estate thought that
they would be ruined if the State went dry; that rents would come down and their
buildings would be unoccupied. However, they have found that when the saloons
went out that the store rooms were quickly occupied by new business, and some of
the real estate owners have expressed themselves positively that they would vote dry
on the proposition if ever submitted again.'
