About the first thing he docs on retir
ing in to start on a series of pilgrimages.
Sometimes he joins a band of fellow
pilgrims , or , if comparatively wealthy ,
he sometimes takes his wife and a mi
nor child and makes the pilgrimages by
himself. These pilgrim hands can al
ways ? be seen moving about the couu-
try. They carry little banners with the
name of their city and district marked
on them , and when they have received
good entertainment at a teahouse or
hotel they hang oue of their banners up
in a conspicuous place as a testimonial.
Often a band of pilgrims will travel

Cata of Ancient
By some persons the popularity of
the cat In Egypt has been attributed
to the fact that the animal was valu
able in ridding the palaces of rats and
mice and also in hunting fowls. There
ore several paintings in the British
museum , executed by ancient Egyp
tian artists , representing Egyptian
sportsmen in boats on the river Nile ,
accompanied by large cats , sitting on
their haunches in the stern. Other

birds in their mouths after the mannej

because the cat of today has a strong

I suffered with falling and con- .
geation of the wonib , "with severe j
gains through the groins. I suf-
ared terribly at the time of men
struation , had blinding headaches
and rushing of blood to the brain.
"What to try I knew not , for it
seemed that I had tried all ajnd
failed , but I had never tried "Wine
of Cardui , that blessed remedy for
sick women. I found it pleasant
to take and soon .knew that I had
the right medicine. New blood
seemed to course through my veins
and after using eleven , bottles I
was a well woman.
Mrs. Bush is now in perfect
health because she took "Wine of
Cardui for menstrual disorders ,
bearing down pains and blinding
headaches when all other remedies
failed to bring her relief. Any
sufferer may secure health by tak
ing Wine of Cardui in her home.
The first bottle convinces the pa
tient she is on the road to health.
