you know, ma, that there was
a company formed at Liberty
and have bought a hearse?"
I said, "'Who are the company?"
"The doctors, the druggist and
the undertaker. The under
taker hesitated about taking
stock in it, but the doctors and
druggist told him they'd see that
it didn't lack for patrons." I ex
claimed, "Preposterous!" when
he said, "'It's a fact, ma, and I
heard pa say he was going to

for if he had to have the doctors
with you, you'd be a 'gone

replied, with some spirit, "see if
I don't." The little rascal was
grinning "fit to kill," when he
said, "'Now, ma, that's all a

that be a paying partnership,

A galvanized iron tank is placed iv

The cut Is made in this way merely
o show the different parts. The va

he house, arranging things so as to
ake as little pipe with as few turns

Tle pump is used for the water sup- t

tcting pump, one can, by changing the
hut-offs, pump water from the cistern
o fill the upper tank.
The filter, F, is not entirely neces- t
ary. By having an aerator attach

,recaution to turn out the first water

FERTiLITY OF SOIL
Iclence of the Growth of Plants e
Should Be Understood by Farmer.
A. R. Whitson of the Wilsconsin sta
ion saya: Directly or indirectly the
ood of mankind comecs from the soil,
Ind( there is. therefore, nothing more
muportant In agriculture than that the
actors wvhich detcrmninc the produc- I
ivoness of the soil be thoroughly uin- .
lorstood. This bulletin is written for
he puirpos- s of putting before the
armer a statement of our present
:nowledge of the factors which infiu
nce the fertility of the soil and of the
elation of these factors to each other. d
rho agricultural plants require for
rowth a favorable temperature, !;ght,
nd a supply of material including car
on dlioxide, water and certain e-hem
cal elements derived from the soil. c
rhe chief of these elements are nitro- *
ren, phosphorus, potassium, calciumn
and magnesium, Since oxygen is used
it every point of the plant where t
growth takes place, it is needed at the
ops of the roots, and therefore soli t
nust be aerated. All these condi
ions are dependent on the climate, on
he physical and chemical conditions
>f the soi, and on various changes
;oing on in the soil.

Bladder troubles most always result fron
a darangement of the kidneys and a cure is
obtained quickest by a proper treatment of
the kidneys. If you are feeling badly you
can make no mistake by taking Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney, liver aid
bladder remedy.
It corrects inability to hold urine and scald
ing pain in passing it, and overcomes that
unpleasant necessity of being compelled to
go often during the day, an4 to get up many
limes during the night. The mild and the
sxtraordinary effect of Swamp-Root is :oon
realized. It stands the highest for its won
clerful cures of the most dintreczing cases.
- Swamp-Root is plcasant to take and oil
by all druggists in fifty-cent and one-dollar
sized bottles. You may

his wonderful new di?

able salt as a remedy.
A maid from a neighIboriing
louse supplied a small sack of
