“Just recently I used a box of

“I suffered with bearing
down pains, i . The
dizzy spells got so bad
that when 1 would start to
walk, I would just pretty
nearly fall. Was very
much run-down. I told
my husband I thought
Cardui would help me. . .
He got me a bottle. . . It
helped me so much that
he got me another bottle.
I got a whole lot belter.
The dizzy spells and the
bearing-down pains . . .
left me entirely.’’

Her Secret of Health.
A vigorous old lady when asked the
secret of her eighty-three years ot
health replied: "I never allow myself
to fret over things I cannot help. I
take a nap, and sometimes two of
them, every day. I do not carry my
washing, ironing, dressmaking, or bak
ing to bed with me; and I try to oil
1 all the friction out of my busy life by
an implicit belief that there is a brain
and a heart to this great universe,
and that I can trust them both.”
Small Successes Count.
Be satisfied with success in even
the smallest matter and think that
even suoh a result Is no trifle.—Mar
