There is no charm about McElree’s Wine of Cardui, al
though there seems to be. When it is taken by women suffer
ing with “female troubles”, it cures them naturally. This
release from the grasp of terrible diseases brings about such
feelings of relief and joy that they imagine the Wine is charmed.
The fruth is that this is exactly the medicine Nature intended for
curing the feminine organs when weakness or disease attacks
them. Its action is direct upon the delicate organs of menstrua
tion. It goes straight to the seat of the trouble, and overcomes

The Soldiers’ Banquet.
The banquet given the returning sol
diers of the Second Georgia regiment,
last night, under the auspices of tile
Arm;* and Navy league. It to safe to
say, was one of the most brilliant
banquets ever given In Augusta. At
the time of the train's arrival the ar
mory presented a scene of vividly
bright and picturesquely striking
beauty. Hundreds of incandescent
lights shone upon three long tables la
den with a most elaborate supper serv
ed amidst elaborate flora! decorations.
The becoming uniforms of the men
and the bright guns and flower decked
and the lighl gowns and flower-decked
hats of the women added no little to
the effectiveness of the picture. Every
one was in a high good humor anti
compliments and military souvenirs
were exchanged lav.shly. Today
there are going the rounds a number
of pretty stories of gallant soldiers’
gratitude and pretty women's graceful
acts of courtesy.
Altogether, the hour was one long to
