All Relieved by Lydia E. Pink
bam's Vegetable Compound.
Sikeston, Mo. - "For seven years I
suffered everything. I was i bed
for four or five days
at a time every
"month, and so weak
I could hardly walk.
I cramped and had
backache and head
ache, and was so
- nervous and weak
that I dreaded to
-see anyone or have
anyone move in the
room. The doctors
gave me medicine to
ease me at those
times, and said that I ought to have an
operation. I would not listen to that,
gnd when a friend of my husband told
him about Lydia E. Pinklam's Vege
table Compound and what it had done
for his wife, I was willing to take it.
Now I look the icture of health and
feel like it, too. I can do myownhouse
work, hoe my garden, and milk a cow.
I can entertam company and. enjoy
them. I can visit when I choose, and
walk as far as any ordinary woman,
any day in the month. I wish I could
talk toevery su~eringwomanandgirl."

When Coffee is Doing Harm,
A lady writes from the land of cot

of the foo'd beverage-hot Pdstum.
"Ever since I can remember we had
used coffee three times a day. It hadI
a more or less injurious effect upon
us all, and I myself suffered almost
death from indigestion and nervous
ness caused by it.
"I know it was that, because whern
I would leave it off for a few days I
would feel better. But it was hard to
give It up, even though I realized how
harmful it was to me.
"At last I found a perfectly easy
way to make the change. Four years
ago I abandoned the coffee habit and
began to drink Postum, and ,1 also in- 1

the same. Even the children are al

The Silver Penciled Wyandotte, .al
though a very new breed, has made a
reputation for itself by its beauty,

attracting the attenthion of the poul

get at present, as they are being kept

they are very hard to breed. This I
will admit to a certain extent, but a

by an expert judge; but this is also
the case with many of our other

BLACK-HEAD KILLS TURKEYS
As There Is No Known Cure, Bird
Should Be Killed and Body Cre

By B. F. KAUPP, Pathologist. Colorado
There has been considerable loss

1cally known as Entero-hepatitis.
rhe name black head was given be

purple when the turkey is attacked

xot always to be true. The name
Entero-hepatitis was given on ac
:ount of the greater diseased. areas
>ccurring in the intestines and liver.
The disease is caused by a single
:elled animal parasite called Amoeba
neleagridis. The germ, or protozoa,
s taken into th~e body through the
ood, or water, and becomes lodged
n the mucous membrane of the cae
tum, or blind gut. Here, it produces
hickening of the wall, due to in
ammnation, and later, ulceration. The

nore than twice its normal size.

Treatment.-This consists principal
y in preventing the spread of the dis
~ase; when a bird has developed the
lisease there is no known cure. The
>remises should be as thoroughly
:leaned as possible and all rubbish
urned. Then,- disinfection, as far as
possible, with a five per cent. solu

:urkeys should be isolated and not
allowed to run around and spread
:he 'germs of the disease, and thus be
:he cause of others becoming infected.
As there is no known cure for the dis
3ase, the turkey had better be killed
and the body cremated. Feed should
be given in troughs, rather than
thrown on the infected ground, and
thus increase the danger of infectioh.
I'he watering troughs should be en

the water. One teaspoonful of dilute
hydrochloric acid to each quart of

DESTROYING LICE ON FOWLS
By Using Rough Perches and Painting
Killer on Top and Bottom Will
Prove Effective Cure.
(By R. G. WEATHERSTONE.)
We have found it much easier to
destroy lice and mites when we use
2x4 perches. These are strong and
the flat surface will hold quite a
quantity of the louse killer,. which is
painted on the top and bottom of
the perches every few days during the
This will usually destroy the lice if
it is attended to regularly, but if the
hen house is an old one and polluted
with lice by all means spray every
crack and corner with the liquid lice
The house should not be closed up
tight while the fowls are in it im
mediately after using the lice killer,
or the fumes will likely injure them.
The red mites are one of the worst
pests and painting the perches with
the liquid louse killer will usually
destroy them at the same time.
In the day time they may be found
on the under side of the perches and
under boards and in all cracks and
crevices but during the night they
come out and sap the lifeblood out
of the fowls.

Westboro, Mo.-In hunting on the

Grandin came down from the city
and for a few days made his home

Hurst dogs-Buster, a spaniel; Binks,

took up the trail in northern Missouri.
For a few days the hunting was
good, but on the third day the dogs
were killed, and the tangent theory
was clearly demonstrated.
Early in the morning Grandin
struck into the woods and soon had a
half dozen squirrels slung over his
shoulder. Suddenly, close to the river.

a rabbit, was flushed out of a brush
pile. It struck off through the timber,
following the river, until it came to
a huge hollow log on the ground. Into
the hollow of the log, which was six
feet long, darted the rabbit, closely
followed by the three dogs.
The cavity was large enough to
admit the dogs single-'file. Out of the
other end came the rabbit, followed
by Buster, Binks and Muffett. In a
circle the hunted and. the hunters
rushed back into the log. This con
tinued for perhaps five mrinutes, each
lap increasing in speed, until the pace
became furious. It was easily main
tained by the rabbit, but at last be
came too fast for the dogs, and Bus
ter, in the lead, was the first to run
off on a tangent. -
As he was trying to enter the hole
in the logabout the fifteenth time, he
missed his bearing and struck the
trunk of a tree, six feet away, and
was killed. He was closely followed
by Binks. The second dog missed the
tree, but went over the bank into the
river and drowned before Grandin
could save him. Muffet, the remain
ing dog, made the circle, following the
rabbit a few more times, and then col
lided with the outer edge of the hol
low trunk, ripping off one side oil his
head as completely as if it had been
cut with a knife.
SELF-BURNING LOVE LETTER
Novel Contrivance Has Come Intothe
Patent Office Which Should Pre
vent Scandals and Divorce.
Washington.-One unique sugges
tion coming to the patent office re
cently is for a self-burning letter.
Though the commissioners tried to
keep the process secret, the story
soon leaked out and the suggestion
was offered as a defense to the ardent
swain who pours forth his soul in en
dearing and eloquent correspondence
in a breach of promise suit or in the
divorce court helps to swell the ali
mony and excite popular derision.
Love letters have always played a
conspicuous part in the affairs of na
tions and still more momentous role
in the history of hearts, but they
generally possess peculiar features
that make them "impossible" in cold
type. Of course, much depends upon
the eyes that read them, but no mat
ter how romantic the reader, if the
eloquence is not intended particular
ly for him or her, the sentiments ap
pear "stilted." Hence the advantage
f the self-burning'letter. So far as
can be learned, however, the "novel

a certain brand of very fiat match is

New York.-Blame for the prev

physicians, who prescribed the drug,
at a meeting of druggists here to
night to protest against the recently

The ordinance is aimed primarily
at paregoric and at stomach remedies,
according to members of the board of
health who were instrumental in ob

one of the druggists, said he had
