I tried several different doctors, but I grew worse. Finally, our druggist advised Cardui for my complaint I was so thin, my weight was 115. Now, I weigh 163, and I am never sick. I ride horseback as good as ever. I am in fine health at 52 years." TAKE Cardui Woman'sTomc We have thousands of such letters, and more are arriving daily.

m MUSIC OF THE WALTZ. lagie of the Alluring Melodies of Jc- hann Strauss. Johann Struuss wrote sonif of Hie most alluring waltze* iliut •ver bewitched the feet of iii< World, and they have aptly been de- scribed as "those irresistible waltzes that first catch the ear and then curl around the head till on a sud- den they invade and will have the legs." The music of the waltz originally consisted of two sections, each com- posed of eight measures in three- fourths or three-eighths timé. Ex- amples of these primitive forms are found in Heethoven s and Mozart's ^German dances. The next develop- "nient was the stringing together of several of these sixteen measure waltzes and the addition of trios and a coda. Hummel first effected this in 1808. The base of modern waltz music, however, is found in the dances of Schubert. But it is to Weber that the waltz owes wliat, musically speaking, is its m< st important development. The Composition of the "Invitation to the Dance" marked the ad...
