Tfeif Will In
Men are keen for style because they know the value
of good appearance.
Men are critical of quality beeause they know that
the life of their clothes depend upon it.
Men insist upon value because it makes a dollar
go the full length of its duty.
On all these points men have tested the celebrated
have compared them and inspected therrr, and
theyVe invariably found that Kuppenheimer Clothes
win in a walk.
It isn't say-so that has given these clothes their
leadership; its experience, paid for with dollars.
That's the sort of standards we're upholding; that's
the promise we hold out to you in the smart Spring
and Summer models we're asking you to inspect now

is a simple attachment to go on Fords (or other cars) to con
vert them into practical tractors.
The price of the attachment is $145 on Fords and $155
on other cars, much cheaper than any other similar attach
ment. The Pullford does the work of four horses and will do it
in the hottest weather when horses can't stand the gaff.
The Pullford will do the work of four horses and does not
eat when it is not --working. If you could buy four good
horses for $145 you'd think they were mighty cheap.
For practical work on the average farm the Pullford is the
very best investment the farmer can make.
It will pull your binder, do your plowing, discing, harrow
ing, pull your manure spreader, haul your heavily loaded
wagons to town; in fact, it will do about all the work your
horses will do except planting and cultivating your corn.
The Pullford will pife45iy load that your two best teams
will pull and do it easy.
We will demonstrate the Pullford in a few days. Watch
the Plaltsma'ith Journal for the Nl dee.

"THE WHOLE TRUTH"
Says Mrs. Eads, in Writing Her
Praise For Cardui.
Circleville, Ohio. "All I have said
about Cardui, the woman's tonic, is
the whole truth," says Mrs. Fannie
Eads, of R. F. D. No. 6, this town.
"I suffered with womanly weakness,
and pains in my back and limbs for
two long years. I was so bad off, I
could hardly walk at all.
Jly husband advised mo to try
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I con
eluded 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 await
ing skeleton; now I weigh 150 pounds.
I recommend Cardui to every suf
fering woman, for I know what it did
for me. My dresser is never without a
bottle of Cardui on it."
There is no reason why Cardui
won't help you, just as It has Mrs.
Eads, as well as hundreds of thou
sands, of other women in the past 50
yeare. So if you suffer from any of
the many . ailments so common to
women, or need a good strengthening
ionic for that tired, nervous, worn-out
feeling, get a bottle of Card-u-i, '
today. At all druggists. KCBlj
