Eight months atjo I was no ill
that I was compel Ted to lie or sit
down nearly all the time. My
stomach was so weak and upset
that I could keep nothing on it
' and I vomited frequently. I .
could not urinate without great ,
pain and I coughed so much that
my throat and lungs were raw
and sore. The doctors pro-,
nounced it Cright'a disease and.
others said it was'consumption.
It mattered little to me what
they called it and I bad no de
sire.to live. , A sister visited me
from St. Louis and asked me if
Ihaf". r tried Wine of Cardui.
I tola " I had not and she
bought a k (jll.e. I believe that
it saved my i.' I believe many
women could save much suffer-
' ing if they but know of its value.
Don't you want freedom from
pain? Take Wine of Cardui
and make one supreme effort to
be well. You do not need to be
a weak, helpless sufferer. . You
can ha a woman's health and
do a woman's work in life. Why
not secure a bottle of Wine of
Cardui from your druggist to

The Democm'io National Convention
met in til. Louis at noon on the liih.
Joh:i oharp Williams whs e'ectsd tem
poirj chairman, and addressed the
convention in a ringing ppnech that was
receivi (I with the greatest enthusiasm.
An outline of his epe cli is here given :
"This is an appropriate pluce and
time for a Democratic convention. The

The Democratic party afterward
(lathered the country to further exp n
sion ot this leal, free chaiacter in the
acquisition of Florida, the admission of
Texas as a state and the acquisition
Irom Mexico of a magnificent Far West,
fit to b made fctites in the Union and
governed under the constitution."
Mr. Williams Btated that the most im
portant quadrennial event in the world
in tlio election b the American people
of their chief executive. Before thai
great elevation takes place at which all
wen are supposed to arrive at by choice,
and through byways of honesty and in
telligent would to Uod they did at
least two minor elections of a dill'urent
character are held.
"Thete have always been two great
paities who have elected delegates to
conventions for the purpose of selecting
a candidate and promulgating a plat
form. "One of these has already selected its
candidate ami announced its platform.
It was one of the quietest and most un
animous occasions that the mutes ol
history have lecorded..
"The address of in temporary chair
man wa in one eense historical, mostly
ancient history and a great deal of it
bad hietory . It was a labored attempt
to draw away attention from Iioosevlt
inm with its volcanic, emotive, reckless
ch"'','r by dwelling upon the fact that
at some perio.l ia iti his ory the Repub
lican party had been a party which did
things and did them safely."
The or.ttor hoped to have the country
keep in sight i lie lact that it is now in
botti legislative bianchesa partv of non
action, obstruction to reform and pro
gress ; in woid, a party whose only
sacred precept is the shibboleth d;awn
from the gambler's table, "stand pat,"

Williams quoted Root's temporary
speech in which be said that the Repub
lican party is the medium of the people
in the expression ot moral sentiment.
The speaker then arcastically went
over a list of scandals in past and pres
ent history, referring to the Credit
Mobiler, ttie Degolyer-Amei affair, the
whiskey ring, and to a long "saturna
lia" of southern reconstruction as au
The postoilice bureau scandal, the

bo said, ' That the per capita of circula
tion of money suiong the people has in
c:c::td.'rom 23 11 in March 1897, to
31 . 02 in May last, and that the credit
or that and the consequent prosperity
is due to the Republican party.' 'What
a curious boast this is." said be, "for
i those denying so strenuously that the
quantity of money had anytning to do
with the value of money, of the price of
other things as measured in money or
with an ascending scale of prices, or
with national prosperity.
"This was all denied but yesterday.

Turning to the Republican platform
Mr. Williams declared it to be chiefly a
boast that the Republican party is -re
sponsible for every good which has hap
pened. Tnis he denied, referring to ''its
present obstructiveness and its evasion
of live issues."
Referring to the industrial depression
which he said the Republicans have at
tempted to shoulder nn to the previous
Democratic administration. Williams
said that hen Cleveland came into of
fice he found things on the downward
Reviewing the depression he raid that
the India famine and the immense
wheat crop in the Uoi ed States brought
the price of 70 cents. Whenwheit
went up silver bullion wentdowaas
there necessarily was a connection in
price oetween toe two. Thus it came
about, he asserted, that McKinley was
elected because wheat went up.
The boast that McKinley's election
was responsible for high prices, he d e
clarej was false and as to Cuba, public
demand led the Republican party to fall
into line and th Democrats voted for
the war measure as enthusiastically as

Dr. Thomas McCIary,
of Minneapolis, appears at the
Chautauqua this year for the
fourth time. His popularity,
great at first, is increasing year

At 8 p. m., Sunday, July 17, he

politics of heroes," said Williams, "but
I have heard that Dewey is a Democrat,
Schley a Democrt, Miles a Democrat,
and it seems to me that I have heard
that the administration snubbed the
first, tried to disgrace the second, aud
insulted the third."
Turning to the trust questiin he
quoted the hingnage of the Republican
platform and went on to show that Attorney-General
Harmon under Cleve
land's administration really started
suits against the triiBts. He said "ihe
boaFt that the administration has exe
cuted anti-tnist laws is ridiculous, for
Attorney-General Knox in response to
my congressional resolution frankly
confessed that nothing had been done
and left the inference that' nothing
would be done."
Williams attacked the tariff plank in
the Republican piaiforni vigorously and
then scathingly referred to the hvdra
head of special legillatton advocated by
the Republican subsidies. He claimed
it would tie far more justifiable to pass
a law to give every sailor and every
man and woman in the country earning
less than a dollar a dity, an increase of
50 per cent, than it wocld be by pro
tectionism or a ship subsidy to pretend
to have that end in view.
TUB FRANCHISE LAWS
The orator then launched into the
constitutittoual limitations of the rights
of franchise proposed for the Southern
states, aud declared the real object of
the Republicans was to reduce southern
representation without reducing that of
other states iu the North. He warned
the Republicans, if Roosevelt should be
elected on this platform, to be prepared
for another period of business disturb
and tace war in the southern states.
His sarcasm was finely diawn as In re
ferred to the sceue at the Republican
convention when two little negro boys
were paraded before the delegates.
Turning to Democracy, Williams said
it would nominate for president a man
trained in the ways of the constitution
who would not usurp legislation or judi
cial functions nor violate international
usages or keep people guessing what he
should do or say next, and that it would
nominate him on a platform ignoring
dead issues aud dealing with every pres
ent live issue in tones certain aud un
mistakably favoring economy in admin
istration and wise business-like yevision
and reduction of tarttls by friends of the
masses of the people, as well as ot the
