OUR UNCLOUDED FUTURE.
Since the national campaign closed
we have heard less about the fear
some prospects for our national fu
ture. Predictions that the termination
of the war is certain to leave us in
the doldrums, if not to send us all to
the poor house, have practically
ceased. We will hear nothing of them
until the next campaign, unless the
republicans organize the lower house
of congress and open battle for an
other Dingley tariff act.

AN INVITING ALARM.
Some of the hostility to the pro
posal io hold a constitutional conven
tion is cpuite sure to be abated by the
warning given by Mr. J. B. Haynes
of Omaha that such a conention may
result in the injection of the single
tax into our revenue system.
This warning is specifically directed
to the farmers, who, as large land
owners, have habitually misunderstood
the single tax, and as long as they
continue to believe that this tax is
upon land areas instead of land values,
ruth an alarm may prove effective.
But to many that kind of an alarm
will not be an unwelcome one, for
there has been a strong trend of senti
ment toward the single tax in recent
years. It is those who understand
"t who believe in it and advocate it
'I hey believe that the day is nut far
distant when the wisdom of it, and
the economy of it. will appeal to the
It is a system whereby the burden
of taxes for revenue is placed, not up
: v. lands, as ir too commonly misun
dr r. teod, but upon land values, to the
end that land that is employed is not
tared for the benefit of land that is
idde and unproductive.- It is a sys
tem whereby the farmer who improve?
his land is not fined for doing so.

states sentiment for the single tax
ha been so strong that the issue has

"THE WHOLE TRUTH"
Says Mrs. Eads, in Wfitiag Ker
Praise For Cardui.
Circlerillc, Ohio. "All I have Faid
about Cardui, the woman's tonic, is
th? whole truth," says Mrs. Fannie
Eads, of R. F. D. No. , this town.
"I suffered with vromanly weakness,
and rains in my back and limbs for
two Ions years. I was so bad off, I
could hardly wallc at alL
My husband advised me to try
Card'ui, the woman's tonic, and I con
cluded to follow his advice. After tak
ing Cardui according to directions, I
now feel like a new woman, and can
do all of my work.
Before taking Cardui, I was a walk
ing skeleton; now I weigh loO pounds.
I recommend Cardui to everr suf
fering woman, for I know what it did
fo me. Mv dresser is never without a
bottle of Cardui on it."
There is no reason wny Cardui
won't help vou, just as it has Mrs.
Eads, as well as hundreds of thou
sands of other women in the past o0
Vears. So if you suffer from any of
the many ailments so common to
